Lying about what? You can't dispute the facts of my post, so you attack me personally? You are so stuck in your right left paradigm, that you can't see reality. Are you so emotionally tied to Bush that you can't see him for who he is? People on the other side of your emotional state can be seen in Obama rallies sobbing for Obama.
funny, i watch the banter back and forth and something stands out that I think she is missing, notice the number of likes versus the lack of likes near her or any libs comment? that should tell them something, but I am sure it wont tell them the same thing it tells everyone else... lol
I do not care to watch Oprah but because of an interview with former President Bush I will. As always, President Bush is absolutely first-class, even about his comments regarding Obama (I agree Obama is the most divisive Prez in my lifetime). Many things bothered me about Obama's "reflections" on why his party had historical losses -- he is thin-skinned about himself but thick-skinned about Americans and feels our emotions like Spock. His comments about "feeling bad" for those in his Democratic Party who lost their jobs were shocking! How about "feeling bad" for those millions of Americans who have suffered for two years without jobs in this economy while he wasted that time behind closed doors doing "secret" signing and spending unprecedented debt! How about "feeling bad" for those seniors ending up their lives in this country with this type of un-American environment in our own White House?
He was, is and always will be a class act. He's right, what a thankless job. The POTUS will never be able to please everyone. Why anyone would want to do it is beyond me. As for Sarah Palin...who knows....time will tell. I wish GWB the very best.
Wait, so ordinary Americans that drop out of high school and follow pa's footsteps on the farm are better than educated high-income earning Americans that pay everyone else's taxes? I have a great idea! Let's just abolish schools and cities and all become farmers! Then we can all bask in our collective ignorance.
definition of Marxism
the system of economic and political thought developed by Karl Marx, along with Friedrich Engels, esp. the doctrine that the state throughout history has been a device for the exploitation of the masses by a dominant class, that class struggle has been the main agency of historical change, and that the capitalist system, containing from the first the seeds of its own decay, will inevitably, after the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat, be superseded by a socialist order and a classless society.
If the shoe fits....
I was proud of him for the first few years. I thought he was a Christian man, with real convictions. He may not have killed 3k Americans, but his admin certainly left the door open on purpose. Killing off foreign country populations is admitted in the news and wiki leaks. If you deny the police state and the facts about military policing citizens and the loss of a right to trial, then I don't know what to tell you.If you think that he didn't have the power to open the forests by negating Clinton's exec orders, then...................... If you don't believe that he bailed out banks, then, .................... If you think the wars are constitutionally legal, then............. If you think that he was a strong border protector, then................ I don't know what to say to you. I have much much more than that on Clinton and Obama. Do you like the loss of your freedom for securty's sake? Security that is a false premise? Do you like the fed reserve system dismantling our financial system for world gvnmt control? Do you want to be a third world country and a failed state? Why do you see these things as good? Are you a communist?
True he may not have been the best president as far as the economy is concerned. But you have to look at the whole picture of what this man did as president. The biggest thing he did, and the greatest thing any president did in a long time, was he handled the attack on the USA very well. He got the fight back off of our soil and took it to their own land. You can be safe in your homes today, 10 full years later, because of the action President Bush took in the time of crisis.
Also, I don't question that your stupidity gives you a natural right to work a farm, so why you should you question that my intelligence gives me a natural right to rule?
I don't think it's fair to say that I have a side. I would probably be considered a "conservative" on foreign policy and social issues, and a "liberal" on most economic issues and the proper role of government. In effect, like the vast majority of people that are capable of thought, I subscribe to some positions that are "conservative" and others that are "liberal".
"Success" in the long-run is based on a number of things, agreed, but getting a placement in a top US law firm or a top US law school depends quite heavily on grades. Actually, I've spent time in both.
God, you farm folk are retarded. Go speak to any graduate of HLS (or, since it's clear you don't get off the potato farm that often, pick up the phone and see if you can speak to one), there are plenty of conservative ones. They'll all confirm it for you.
No, it's not a lie. It's a simple fact. To be a socialist per your understanding is not to be a Marxist. Is Canada Marxist? Are all our Western European allies Marxist? Is Israel Marxist? No, of course not. They are all capitalist economies with varying degrees of government intervention in the economy to mitigate the excesses of the business cycle. Guess what, that's America too since the 1930s. In your mind, that seems to make them all socialist and Marxist. The former is plausible under a particularly strained definition of "socialist". The latter reveals a simple lack of education. Time to venture of the farm bubba, maybe to a library or community college.
Yes, you're precisely right that "they don't count", in that they weren't worth the extraordinary resources that were spent on finding them, and the extraordinary underfunding of our real security challenges that resulted. Neither America, nor any other nation for that matter, has unlimited resources. We do not have the tens of trillions dollars a year to spend that would be required to deal with every remote threat. Accordingly, the use of the resources we do have has to be proportional to the threats faced. If we have $1 trillion to spend a year on confronting our security challenges, and we spend hundreds of billions on a trivial or modest threat, like Iraq under Saddam Hussein, it necessarily means that we are spending too LITTLE on real threats - and the steady deterioration of our security posture in the Asia-Pacific region during the Bush years stands as testament to that.
And, for what it's worth, I'll point out that I firmly believe that Afghanistan, and more so the Af-Pak theatre, is a huge security challenge for the US, where there are vital US interests at stake. Another interest that suffered through the diversion of resources to Iraq. Obama had a good start in correcting that neglect, but scrambling to get out next year is a disaster waiting to happen also. Sadly, the appetite for winning that conflict seems to be shrinking in both parties.
"Jimbo",You and Miss Schoenheit must have read from the same playbook... DISagreeing is a wonderful and powerful expression of the human spirit.Being an unmitigated ASS takes neither intelligence, class or 'spirit', and the management of this site, where these good people (of BOTH sides ~ and every shade of thought on the matters at hand) gather to view, discuss, and even argue... respectfully ~ WILL NOT TOLERATE ACTIONS SUCH AS YOURS....take it elsewhere, permanently.CM Sackett
Actually, it's Fascism. The Federal Gov't trying to force the States to do what it wants through Nationalization. So, look up the word Revolution and understand how America feels about it.
"Socialist" is as broad a term as "capitalist". If you want to call Democrats "socialists" generally, well, maybe you can under some particularly outlandish understanding of the term stripped of any real historical context. "Marxist" though is quite a bit more specific. Not a whole lot of Marxists left in the world, and certainly none of note amongst the Democrats.
In the end, call people whatever you like. My only objection is to the dumbing down of the debate...
Geez, it's not dogmatic belief. It's common knowledge to anyone who has gone to HLS, or for that matter anyone familiar with how law schools and the legal academy works.
No one needs to see the videos redneck. Here's a bit of insight into HLS for you and your pals that never made it off the potato farm. Both law review and moots are extremely competitive - to have been selected for them amongst the competition speaks for itself.
After researching 9/11, I discovered that emsurfer was the mastermind, who hatched the plot in the 1990s while studying the Dark Side of the Force on Neptune from a clone of Emperor Palpatine that had drifted through the galaxies over millenia and eventually ended up there. Osama bin Laden was recruited into the CIA by emsurfer shortly thereafter while they were both on a Carribean cruise. I dare anyone to convincingly refute these truths with sold proof!
This kind of statement doesn't require refutation! It requires even a modicum of proof before it's considered anything but that which is scrapped of the bottom of ones shoe after walking through a dog park.
Since the left won't let us call the bad guys (islamic terrorists for instance) bad anymore, we instead turn on the guys protecting us.
Blow it out your bagpipe Buford.
You've got that only partly right dougie.
I am definitely not a "my country right or wrong" like you and rest of the right. So, by your definition, you are spot on. I am as anti-american as it comes. And, quite frankly, I pretty much anti-all the rest of countries/people who want to go backwards to some time when women didn't vote, slaves were slaves, civil rights were for only fill-in-the-blank, gay people were killed or imprisoned, no 40 hour week, no child labor laws, no regulation of predatory capitalism, no social security, no medicare, no unemployment insurance.
Let's just say I'm anti-inhumane-backward society. And if that's America, put me down as a rock-ribbed Anti-American. (which i'm sure you will).
"just a tropism toward control by you all of the rest of society"
"we're obstacles to your "progress" and must be excoriated and ultimately destroyed"
"You'll pardon us if we resist you."
"And beat you, which is OUR ultimate goal."
A wannabe right wing deconstructionist? A third rate rural thespian? A paranoid sports fan?
This one's hard to figure out. But he's definitely one of yours!
Class is selling out your country for world gvnmt. Class is destroying the economy through NAFTA and GAT. Class is ignoring the constitution and dictating through exec orders and the like. Class is taking away the rights of individuals to run their own lives and live free. Class is ignoring the fact that they all, and both, have the same agenda. Class is arguing for and against these traitors in a meaningless conversation. Lets make sure we support these people who are taking away evrything that America used to stand for. Lets make sure that our unemployment checks and food stamps keep on a coming. Lets make sure that our debt and tax burden keep going right up. Lets make sure that our currency is severely devalued. They have all done it. Wake up! They have the same agendas.
DMK... you have a really bad memory. In late 2000, early 2001, right when Bush came into office, there was this thing called ".com bubble" that burst and put our economy into a major recession. I am acutely aware of this because my brother lost HIS job and lost his house behind that recession. He and his family lived with me during 9/11/2001. So, the idea that the economy was all peachy when Bush took office is complete BS.
