Come on Scott.
It's been 14-1/2 hrs...
Don't you have some way of excusing Fast& Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting of conservative voters, the secret investigation of the AP, etc...?????
Surely the World Champion Excuse-Maker has an explination for all this...
Oh, By-the-way...I never did hear your plausible explination for all the construction activity that was going on at Auschwitz...
You know, the targeting started when the Obama administration took over GM and Chrysler... The branches they forced closed were ran by mostly conservative people...
Is there anyone left in this country who doesn't understand that we are now a full-fledged Banana Republic, complete with all the corruption, kickbacks, manipulation, etc...???
Yep... Marketing... That's what Steamboat needs more of...
I wonder which one of you tried to find the sheriff's oath to grill him about breaking it when it was the former sheriff driving drunk?
I wonder if DUI is in the Sheriff's oath?
"...smart enough to read the lawsuit." ??? Really?
HEEE HAAAW eeeh awwww eeeeh aawww...
Sorry Rhys, but...
I do not doubt your intellect, but I am beginning to think you have been educated way beyond your intellectual capacity.
What I "propose" is for busy-bodies like you and Steve to leave people like me the hell alone.
I propose that you do not come asking for my guns and that you do not send others to do so in your stead.
I propose you stop goading your buddy Uncle Scam into doing to me what YOU and Steve are not legally, morally, or ethically endowed to do to me.
I propose you stop splitting constitutional, ethical, moral, and intellectual hairs and wake up to the reality that all your intellectual fodder aint worth moose tits in the real world.
I propose that you, and people like you stop shilling for a demonstrably corrupt system, headed by demonstrable crooks. That you grow a pair, and stop making excuses for a governmental system that has failed in every corner of the world in which it has ever been tried.
I propose that you stop trying to defend the indefensible, protect the guilty, excuse the inexcuseable, repair the terminally disfunctional.
I propose that you stop tearing down those who, despite their comparaive intellectual shortcommings, are actually far ahead of you on the "duuuhhh" scale.
I propose that you take a few days off and read Fredrich Bastiat, Ludwig von Mises, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Rothbard , Friedman, Alexis De Tocqueville, Adam Smith, and others who understand liberty, tyranny, and the fallacy of the almighty State which you so foolishly champion.
Then, when all else fails, I suggest you do what your mother no doubt did, or was often tempted to do... GO HAVE A DRINK.
You know what Pat... You are right. Knowing the whackos on the far left, and the attorneys of this great land, I too would expect that a BOOK would get blamed for killing someone long before the scumbag that actually threw it (ie pulled the trigger).
Do you know how many mentally ill people and felons get their sinister ideas from books? Ever read any thing from NAMBLA, etc about how to lure children into...
And don't forget when the president spoke about how that horrible video sparked the killing of several Americans in Libya. That's right Scott. Your buddy Obama said that it was caused by the First Ammendment. And don't blame the Second for that because there IS NO Second ammendment in Libya...
"A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
Only someone like Scott would argue that that statement meant only the well-educated had the right to keep and read books, or that the broader electorate had the right ONLY to certain, "less detailed" books... you know... short stories, childrens books, comics, and the like; while the more weighty and philosophical renderings should be reserved for those with sufficient intellect and dicipline to really appreciate them.
Yet that is EXACTLY the argument the left makes about the 2nd ammendment.
No. It was NOT a record turnout.
And the last election occurred BEFORE the Chicago intimidation/protection machine was outed.
I'm not too sold on Fox News either, but how exactly would John St Pierre be in a position to know which network IS and IS NOT reporting the news?
Besides, if even 1/10th of the news (from Fox or otherwise) about Uncle Scam is true then we are SCREWED anyway.
As far as being polorized, the electorate certainly is that. And I believe it is worse than it has ever been in my lifetime.
The reason is because, unlike years or decades ago, whoever controls gubbamint controls such a huge and rapidly increasing part of our lives.
Think about it... Put something in control of your health-care, your job, your church, your car and the fuel it burns, the food you eat, what size soda you can buy, what you can do with your land, and basically every other aspect of your life and guess what!!...
Everybody is going to feel COMPELLED to fight aggressively to obtain control of THAT particular entity.
And that is exactly what we see happening. The left wants the control to continue the "fundamental transformation", and the right wants control to keep that transformation from destroying the few remaining slivers of personal liberty we have left.
And it's not just individuals. Corporations, who are now basically RAN by the stinkin' gubbamint, feel COMPELLED to jockey for position. Kind of funny that the harder the left works at getting gubbamint to "control" corporations, the harder corporations work to infiltrate and cozy-up to gubbamint. And few on the left have the brains or vision to even see the connection. The very thing they foolishly believe they are fighting is what their actions are causing.
The answer that is starring everyone of us right in the face is quite simple:
SHRINK THE FREAKIN GUBBAMINT to the point that it is not such a huge part of every single aspect of every one of our daily, hourly lives, and people will feel less of a need to control it. The smaller the entity, the less important it is who controls it. The smaller the bull, the less damage it can do to my china shoppe, No?? Less room for corruption, waste, fraud, abuse, etc as well.
Collectively, I do not think we will summon the will to do it. We will foolishly continue to feed and empower the beast with one hand while filing away at its few remaining fetters with the other. It will not be long now until it turns on its "master" the American people, and shows them who is REALLY in charge. But, like trading on Wall St, by the time it becomes obvious to the majority, it will be way too late.
