Re: FILE THIS UNDER

I couldn't find my tinoil hat this morning. Turns out the old lady used it to cover some leftover Chinese food and now it's got Peking Duck all over it.

Damn.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

Wow, way to toe the party line.

Liberal isn't anymore openminded than conservitive.

Liberals are just closeminded about completely different topics. Neither want a real debate. Both sides just shout their prepackaged sound bites.

"Liberal isn't anymore openminded than conservitive."

www.dictionary.com

"Liberals are just closeminded about completely different topics."

I agree that some people who call themselves liberal are pretty closed minded, but that just illustrates the big difference between saying and doing. Both parties have a problem wih this because it is a human problem. Our words say what we aim to be, while our actions often fall short.

For example, Dubya says he's a fiscal conservative who advocates small government ... but spends like a drunken sailor and has one of the largest governments in US history. He's obviously not a fiscal conservative no matter what he likes to call himself.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

"How much is that debt, Bigdx? How much is that deficit every year?"

Remind me what that has to do with you? I keep on forgetting

"Last I checked, Canada had a balanced budget and has been that way for half a decade."

Remind me why I give a f*ck what Canada does?

While I won’t call Canada Americas *******, (that is reserved for another neighbor) I think armpit is a good description. The "left" armpit mind.

"Internationally, Canada is respected and is considered by the UN to be one of the better, if not the best, country in which to live."

LOL – the UN? Oh, you mean the guys that took bribes from Saddam in the oil-for-food scandal? Yeah, I guess they would think Canada is a good place to live …

"Oh, how did we all manage to exist for those eons of human history before the US came along?"

You existed by reading by candlelight, heating by fire, flight by … er by no flight, communication by letter, computing by …er not computing …

Bottom line, we do not need any a$$hole foreigner telling us what is good for us. Rather, you do what we tell you to do.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

Let's not be cute with the dictionary link. You know I was speaking of the political definition of the word.

Well, don't you worry, in about 2 and a half years the Demos will get their chance to f*ck sh!t up.

And if the Demos can't manage a win in '08, than they might want to think about closing down the shop, cuz they obviously have no idea how to put together a message or find a candidate the can get his sh!t together.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

Truer words were never written Mike. It is an absolute embarrassment that our "education" system has produced a multitude so near sighted that they can't discern our country's devolvement into a police state.

Re: OMG WTF its teh flamwar!!1!1

Evidently, I should have expected the usual sub-literate USA vs. Canada/The UN/France/Your Mom rockthrowing, a bit of liberal vs. conservative puke, mixed with some Harleys-are-teh-suck, I-for-one-welcome-our-new-Chinese-overlords shiat. It's certainly not boring. Oh, wait.

Who wants to know my area code? That way you can determine if I suck or not, by using Science.

"Remind me what that has to do with you?"

Nothing, thank God. I have the luxury of living in a country that *doesn't* owe 35K for every man, woman and child in the country, so I don't have to pay a penny of that money back. You, on the other, do ... so sorry. Hope the Grandkids think that spending more money on defense than the rest of the world combined was worth it when the bills come due.

"Remind me why I give a f*ck what Canada does?"

Oil. Water. Natural Gas. Coal. Steel. Lumber.

That's why you should care about Canada. The US consumer beast is a hungry animal and the US is already the biggest importer of goods in the world. You think this wonderful lifestyle is going to last forever? Keep dreaming.

"Oh, you mean the guys that took bribes from Saddam in the oil-for-food scandal?"

Yes, I mean the UN that Paul Volcker tried to demonize with the so-called scandal, except that he left out that the job of monitoring all the maritime traffic where the shipments took place was actually a US Navy responsibility:

http://www.thenation.com/doc/20041206/gordon

and so the people responsible for letting the 5.7 billion dollars of illegal oil to leak out of Iraq was ... the US. 52% of the actual oil ended up in the coffers of US corporations and was sold on the open market, but of course it was the UN that made all that money, right? The head of the team who was supposed to monitor the sales has gone on record saying that the lion's share, other than what went to the US, went to Jordan and he turned a blind eye because it was those sales that were keeping Iraq alive during the sanctions. That man was a US rear-admiral, not a UN official.

Volkers had a lot of trouble proving that kickbacks took place, too, and out of the 170 people named in his senate report, only three have been charged with anything. Some scandal ... it isn't even half as exciting as illegally spying on your own citizens.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

I apologize for the dictionary link. It was crass and unnecessary.

I honestly wouldn't mind another Republican run government in the US ... just without the neocons. Their brand of crazy is just a bit too aggressive for my tastes. Get them out, though, and the Republican party is actually not bad.

I would LOVE to see a third or a fourth party get some seats, though, to mix things up.

Re: FILE THIS UNDER

"Actually, mghempel is correct in pointing out that America IS turning into a police state. "

LOL.

I've been hearing that line since Reagan was in office. Somehow it never seems to happen.

Come to think of it, everything I hear about Bush is the same stuff I heard about Reagan. Geez, guys, get another script.
