You're a riot, Pat - in a 'fish in a barrel' kind of way; when the barrel contains preening hypocrites.
"Name calling is against the posting rules and should get you kicked off this forum." Not a lot of ambiguity there. If you had the courage of that unequivocally stated conviction, you wouldn't pretend you needed one of the Pilot's resident crybabies to enforce it. That you cling to such a juvenile charade says more about you than you know.

"I have a wide stance."

You are in excellent company, my friend!
Who have I tried to "browbeat" off this forum, Pat? And why are you still posting, in the wake of your edict that "Name calling is against the posting rules and should get you kicked off this forum."? Which was, of course, after you had violated that same edict. I haven't yet decided if your raging hypocrisy is amusing, pathetic, or craven. I suspect it may be a conflation of the three.
I can’t speak to Mark’s post, since a resident crybaby had it removed before I was able to see it. But let’s review some memorable deployments of Nazi imagery in furtherance of various pet dogmas. We can go all the way back to Barry Goldwater's GOP Presidential nomination, which prompted CA Gov. Pat Brown to observe the "stench of fascism is in the air."
We recall Nancy Pelosi’s bogus fabrication that Obamacare protesters were wearing swastikas to townhall meetings.
“There’s a whiff of fascism in the air”, according to bloated Dem Jerrold Nadler when Bush supporters protested a secret vote recount (nice to know that generations Dems will happily recycle good old fashioned nazi slurs).
Albany State Troopers assigned to protect Hillary Clinton during the 2000 Dem primary were spit on and referred to by Dem delegates as “Guilani’s storm troopers.”
The British edition cover of Paul Krugman’s The Great Unraveling was published with a portrait of Dick Cheney sporting a Hitler mustache.
The term Bushitler became so ubiquitous that it has been thoughtfully defined for us by urbadictionary.com
Al Gore derided as "brownshirts" the GOP functionaries assigned to respond to criticism of Bush & the Iraq war.
NYT columnist Frank Rich's review of a Showtime 9/11 program opined that it was so favorable to W that it "is best viewed as a fitting memorial to Leni Riefenstahl."
The Nation columnist Dave Lindorff's piece: “Bush and Hitler: The Strategy of Fear”
Sen. Robert Byrd took to the Senate floor in 2003 to compare the Bush administration to the Nazi elite. It could be what earned the revered Klansman his posthumous hand job from Bill Clinton at the Byrd memorial.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson's characterization of Bush's re-election as "nazi like."
RFK Jr. accused the GOP of using nazi and fascist tactics during the presidential campaign that same year.
NAACP director Julian Bond in 2006: "Republican flag and the Nazi flag fly side by side."
I'm confident that the crybaby/crybabies who nuked Mark's post are angry! aghast! outraged! enflamed! at these vile allusions, and will flag this post for deletion. And will condemn in the strongest possible terms liberal luminaries like Gore, Paul Krugman, RFK Jr, Frank Rich, Jesse Jackson, et al. Because they admire the GOP, or something.
Resist we much!
John - my understanding is that the Pilot ignores this forum until one of our resident crybabies reads something that makes them cry. The post is flagged and removal is automatic. The crybabies never identify themselves, and the Pilot appears content to insulate their cowardice.
Depleting our savings account was "irresponsible and unpatriotic" with W at the helm, according to his successor. "30 thousand dollars for every man woman and child!" Of course, that's when the gullible were happily being conned into believing what a responsible financial steward he was going to be. Now that O has ratcheted up that depletion by an order of magnitude, it's crickets. Raving hypocrite much, Mr. President?
It'll be interesting to see if this is real smoke from a real fire. I'm always skeptical finger pointing from disgruntled former employees.
I also assume that Gore would never sully himself by flying commercial with the great unwashed. But that's okay - with enough scratch, you can offset all that private jet greenhouse gas.
Here's Al Gore's "serious effort" to have a zero carbon footprint: his Tennessee mansion, which according to the Nashville Electric Service uses more electricity in a month than the average American home uses in a year.
His California spread, about which I am unable to find any energy use data.
Gore deploys the most ludicrous fiction to assert he's leading a carbon neutral personal life, via the purchase of "carbon offsets." In other words, you can consume all the energy you want as long as you have the $ to afford the "offsets." Bonus points of course, if you chair and co-own the company selling you those offsets: Generation Investment Management.
What a venal dbag.
Green energy vs. dead birds. Reminds me of Mad Magazine's Spy vs. Spy when I was a kid.
To be fair, I have in the past admonished Mark to dismount that same horse.
