You are a despicable, wretched boil on the ass of humanity.
You relish misery and misfortune. You welcome strife and death and destruction. You hope for the worst.
All to justify your weak-minded support of a political party that would bind you in subserviance for the remainder of your meager days.
You should every day thank Allah, or God, or Gaia, or whatever your favorite deity may happen to be, that you're living in a country where we *do not* have tyranny and injustice, where we *do* have more freedom, more rights and more privilege than any other country on earth.
Because otherwise, with your warped, blindly-partisan and belligerant political rantings, you'd be nothing more than a bloodstain in some dank and forgotten cinderblock basement.
And if I wasn't an American, and if I *didn't* value your right to dissent (which I do, even though I KNOW you're a raving lunatic) I would celebrate that day.
Thank your lucky stars that you have GWB instead of Kerry as your president. Be grateful that GWB and our soldiers will save you from fundamentalist Islam, because Osama, Saddam, et. al. would not be so kind. In North Korea, Kim would shoot you by his own hand. Putin would just have you "disappear." China would at least give you a show trial. In Holland, the muslim radicals have shown that they would quietly murder you on a darkened street. Even Chirac would thrown you in jail for "Hate Speech" the way you talk.
You are damn lucky to have what you have - maybe you should try it the dictators' way a while before you lament your woes.
And, by the way, I voted for Bush. You're welcome.
QWAK,maud,No one can fault YOUR patrotism, but your OBJECTIVITY and that CANNED speach went out with the 60s and telling HIPPIES "LOVE it or LEAVE IT!"----it was WRONG and incorect THEN and is ALL the more so NOW!
We are a heart beet away from having a POLIECE STATE every ware in the USA today!
More than EVER befor you MUST watch what you say and many things just said in jest could get you and DOES get people in BIG trouble!
The COPS are JUMPY and armed to the teeth and a LOT more DANGEROUS and likely to SHOOT you if you make a wrong move.
We just had a local resterant owner shot and killed by 3 cops answering a berglary call----OOPS! It is happening a LOT more often than most people realise!
Our government is using and spreading FEAR to JUSTIFY lots more COPS and COP weponery that DOES get turned on the public!
Almost EVERY town has a SWAT unit now and many have ARMORED ASAULT vehicals and fully AUTOMATIC WEAPONS,body armor,TASRs, and lots of NEW JAILS, they have spent MANY BILLIONS to control DISGRUNTALED and UNHAPPY AMERICANS!
Perhaps your ROSE COLLORED PATRIOT glasses need a NEW PERSCRIPTION??
Man, did you hear Terry Gross the other day? She had this administrative official backed into a corner. She caught his reference to Medicare stats (actuarial) that factored in poor people die sooner. How's that for clarity. We know that, of course, but it was so blatant and crass and chilly. In other words, the government is counting on a number of people dying of poor health care and neglect!!! Yuk.
Yes, why can't the government lie to us? It's only medical insurance coverage after all. Can't the government just make us all feel good? Wait - that's just what comunist countries do.
Another great comment by our local Orwellian.
QWAK,angel,Just reality when you build a pirimid or go to WAR lots of SLAVES and PRIVETS DIE.
The actual problem is NOW that they got to deal with the people who THOUGHT they were in the middle and have been SQUISHED down to the BOTTOM and the numbers only work IF most of them get DEAD befor they have to start PAYING what was promised to them!
Even watering down the SOUP (devaluing the dollar)won't help enough and the ones on TOP are not about to lower their STANDARDS so I expect an "EVENT" of some sort will show up and if not solve the problem it will distract attention from it, sort of like 911 did or was suposed to do.
I understand that you fail to see that W is just as hypocritical as the next politician and you don't see the polling by the rove group before he takes his public stands. Perhaps you miss the stories about what he says to A and then to B.
Kerry was the Democrtic nominee. I beleive he would have been a better President than Bush whether or not he was more two faced which I personally did not believe he was. I found his stand on issues such as civil rights including gay rights, privacy much more intune with myself and the American Way.
Clinton outside of his sexual life was a pretty straight shooter quite frankly. And I don't beleive one's sexual life, even our Presidents is anybody's business other than the immediate family and consenting adults.
Kerry was a zero before being nominated as the Dem candidate. He continued being a zero. He was seen as a zero. There just wasn't enough anti-Bush sentiment to get a zero elected. Today's NY Times has a big article on privacy rights. Kerry voted against privacy rights 16 times. Every single time. He cannot embrace anyone's rights with respecting an individual's right to privacy. And yes, Alpha, you are again wrong on facts. Kerry had no respect for privacy. Look it up before you say so. You should be able to look up 16 no votes for protecting an individual's privacy.
