"From 1934 to 1939 Hofstadter was active in left-wing groups, including a leadership role in the Young Communist League and (in 1938–39) a member of the Communist Party"
I never promote Communist trash like you do yet I get accused of being a Communist sympathizer like Lee Harvey Oswald by idiots like agent0977 and fat_marty. You promote the Communist doctrine Oswald embraced, and you get thumbs up. You clowns keep projecting your Communist desires on me and calling me LHO when it is you that have the same philosophy as LHO. I just keep laughing at how dumb you are and how much you are in denial.
There is no historic support for your nonsensical belief. It has only been anti-business, anti free trade governments supported by fanatics like you that have killed hundreds of millions of human beings not business people such as merchants, traders or corporations.
Do you need me to read to you like a 3 year old? Besides Turley there's Chomsky, West and a lot more top leftists that from major universities. What are you reading the comics page. Idiot!
Every dark cloud has a silver lining. Putin is keeping 0b0nz0 so busy in Syria and the Ukraine that he has unwittingly managed to prevent 0b0nz0 from doing further damage to the USA. The falling popularity of 0b0nz0 is good for America because it peels away the "likeability" factor of the president and cuts down to expose 0b0nz0's incompetent leadership. What Putin has been able to do is expose 0b0nz0 as an incompetent president which honest objective people knew but some others who don't read objective news stories, were still unaware of. Now there is no place for 0b0nz0 to hide as even the press that has been in bed with him can't promote a lie that he is competent.
We all agree that 0b0nz0's only recourse in dealing with Putin is to export more oil and gas to hurt Putin economically. Now 0b0nz0 must "Drill baby Drill" as sane people have been suggesting for years but the fanatics on the left tried to prevent with all their anti-American little hearts. Hindsight is 20-20 and it shows how utterly blind 0b0nz0 and the left were by not expanding drilling on government land. Now he has to drill on government land, thanks to Putin, or he has to incentivize the private sector to produce more oil on private land. In the mean time my wealth skyrockets because I anticipated all this. The "Drill baby drill" crowd who were ridiculed by nutty lefties here are now vindicated and Progs can go suck a lemon now.
0b0nz0 was a wonderful community organizer but the Peter Principal took effect once he was elected to the Illinois Senate got worse when he was elected to the US Senate and is worse yet with him in the White House. A preoccupied and politically neutered 0b0nz0 is the best that any real patriotic American can hope for. LOL
I appreciate the blessing Sir Paul. This was one of the more sensible things you've offered on this board.
vaGenna - Why do you think that presenting a logical counter argument for false claims by a nut like Agent0977 is a problem. Agent0977 never made a case for how I m like Lee Harvey so all I did was point that out . Fringe philosophy is that which is rooted strictly in belief without evidence be it right or left. You need to revisit your beliefs that lack evidence and your hypocrisy in continuing to defend a man that is worse than GWB or Nixon. When left wingers like Turley are providing evidence that 0b0nz0 is far worse than Nixon, it sets the bar to measure those on the left who are rational and those who are simply mindless fanatics. You do not measure up as a rational person like Turley and you continue to hold on to irrational excuses and fanatical Progressive dogma. I am not right fringe. You are just so far out on the fringe left that to you it appears that I am.
For the sane people on the board, Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the then Communist country USSR. Here are some of my positions:
1) I'm pro-capitalist unlike 0b0nz0 and his communist leaning ilk like agent 0977
2) I see Obonzo's ramping up of the NSA domestic spying as being like the USSR KGB unlike communist leaning ilk like agent 0977
3) I think 0b0nz0 is performing like an old Soviet dictator by bypassing other branches of government unlike his communist leaning ilk like agent 0977
I believe in smaller government and larger private sector unlike 0b0nz0 and his communist leaning ilk like agent 0977
It is very likely that Lee Harvey Oswald woulld have been a huge 0b0nz0 supporter and agreed with most of what Agent 0977 believes had he lived in this time and place. The only possible conclusion one can logically make is that 0b0nz0 and his communist leaning ilk like agent 0977, have far more in common with the communist embracing Lee Harvey Oswald than I do because I reject 0b0nz0's communist style of leadership and his communist leaning turd burpers like agent 0977.
Agent 0977 shows the classic psychological symptoms of someone struggling with reality and compensating for that struggle by transference of his attraction to the communist doctrine embraced by Lee Harvey, onto me. Agent0977 has an emotional attachment to a president raised and indoctrinated in communist thought both at home and at Harvard. So every time he projects his Lee Harvey Oswald communist leaning sympathies onto me, who is the politically polar opposite of Lee Harvey, Agent0977 is mealy reinforcing his own attraction to a communist radical like Lee Harvey which reinforces his emotional connection with ob0nz0. ;-)
Anybody that's a thorn in the side of the IRS is an American hero to most American people. 26% of people believe 0b0nz0 lies and evades and isn't transparent. 70% support Issa on the IRS investigation. Lois learner is hiding something, the American public sees that, and the above numbers support that. Cummings angry King Kong act was very entertaining but it fools nobody. The new memos that make Lois Learner look like a liar are the story being covered not the King Kong style faux outrage. People are tired of his antics and lack of cooperation in finding thee truth. His attempts to preserve the non-transparency of the president are failing.
I don't know if you recall but a couple of years ago there was talk about the BRICS taking measures to move away from the US Dollar as the world currency. The exporting of oil and gas would make that much harder for the BRICS.
The college idiots that chained themselves to fences in DC in an effort to prevent 1/10,000C degree of warming by 2100, will be all upset and wondering how 0b0nz0 could betray them and sign off on the Keystone pipeline. A few days ago they tried to convince me on twitter that the KXL pipeline was evil because the oil would only help China while putting the US environment at risk. I didn't want to upset their little fantasy bubble brain belief system and tell yes I already knew that and that is precisely why the pipeline will be built, so I didn't say anything and fanatics lack reason so it would have been futile to explain it to them. It's the cheapest and safest way to get Canadian oil to China as Texas has the expertise to refine this type of oil and offload it on tankers to China or Europe. Canadian oil going to China and China being dependent on the US and Canada for that oil, is precisely what we want. The US dollar will remain strong because of our oil presence in the world the Ruble will plummet and the Chinese will sell the Ruble and buy more US dollars.
How surprised am I? LOL From yesterday morning in case you missed it.

From the CIA World Factbook:
"Russia became the world's leading oil producer, surpassing Saudi Arabia; Russia is the second-largest producer of natural gas; Russia holds the world's largest natural gas reserves, the second-largest coal reserves, and the eighth-largest crude oil reserves."
"Russia's reliance on commodity exports makes it vulnerable to boom and bust cycles that follow the volatile swings in global prices. The government since 2007 has embarked on an ambitious program to reduce this dependency and build up the country's high technology sectors, but with few results so far."
Sparty - With recent new reserve discoveries in oil and gas the US now has as much gas as Russia and much more oil. The big difference is that the US can produce NG at 1/2 the cost of Russia. It would take a few years but thee US could flood world markets with oil and gas that we can produce much more cheaply than Russia. The Russian economy would take a huge hit and the Ruble would tank. No boots on the ground no bombs no drones needed. Less
hooz-d*k has removed his now famous post, that I will cherish for quite some time, where he informs the board that he is familiar with the size of 100 average Republican d*ks. We can only speculate as to how he came to know such information. ROTFLMAO
You must live in your mom's basement playing video games all day with echoes bouncing around inside your empty skull. LMAO
As fun as it might be to join you on your merry-go-round of speculation about the future I'm not interested. GWB was a bad president in my mind. The real problem the one that is the 800 pound gorilla in the room that somehow lefties here refuse to see, is that 0b0nz0 is incapable of putting the ship on course. In fact a growing number of Progressive intellectual leaders now say that 0b0nz0 is far worse than GWB and Nixon.
I claimed to know 0b0nz0's incompetence long ago on this board so for me seeing top Progressive intellectuals in agreement with me a sense of satisfaction. I like rubbing your nose in it.
You and the rest of the aluminum beanie crowd on the other hand, close your eyes cover your ears and continue to happily enjoy the #$%$ sandwiches 0b0nz0 feeds you. I'm fine you eating the #$%$ sandwiches but don't act so surprised or get so upset when I point out that you have #$%$ all over your face.
Last time I looked in the Washington Post 0b0nz0 had all the Pinocchio's and I had none. This is a small portion of 0 lies so people can see what a moron you are.

In all fairness there is another possibility as to how hooz has knowledge about the average Republican #$%$. His wife might have a thing for Republicans and has first hand (maybe more than hand) knowledge and she told him what the average is. But if it's only 100 then it isn't statistically valid and she will have to obtain 900 more samples. Then again men could lie and claim they are Republican to get laid. Maybe hooz has to lie too to get laid.
OK I'm done. I've decided I no longer want to know how hooz is obtaining information on the average Republican #$%$. It's creeping me out.
For a statistically accurate representation of the average Republican #$%$, Hoodz needs to examine 900 more Reepublican #$%$s. I'm not sure how hooz is achieving his samplings. My doctor doesn't inquire into my political affiliations before physicals so I doubt hooz is obtaining such information via that profession. There is one profession where he might give discounts based on party affiliation to capture his data, but then men might just lie for the discount and hoodz nickname would be "hooz the gagger". Well I wish him luck however he plans to obtain the data.
"I'll admit it's the size of 100 average Republican diks"
Hoodz plans to check the average size of 100 Republican diks every day. It's a labor of love for him.
