Answer my question, Loon. While you preach sedition on this message board 24/7, do you or do you not stop your car at a red light at 3 a.m., even if there is not other traffic in sight? My guess is while you are BIG BIG BIG on resisting tyranny, you meekly follow the laws, then come home to your keyboard and bild about the bitcherburgers //./ I mean ... well, you know the line!

Their own merits and abilities? You mean like, "I san set more rivets than the other six dozen guys in the line?" But the line only moves at a fixed rate anyway.
I love it. The more over the top you go, the less I have to do to alert people you're insane.

How Complainers Wreck the Economy
By Rick Newman | Daily Ticker
Are things really this bad? The unemployment rate has been drifting down for four years. The pace of layoffs is very low, which provides improved job security for the 137 million Americans who do have jobs. Companies are healthy, banks are lending again, and households have been shedding debt and improving their own balance sheets.
It’s easy to disregard what’s going right and highlight nothing but the challenges we face—which seems to be a lot of people’s preference. But gloom itself may now be a bigger economic problem than any of the traditional ones. There’s no bellyacher index I’m aware of, but if you read between the lines, there does seem to be growing evidence that we believe things are worse than they are—and maybe even want to believe that.
Here’s one example: Obamacare is obviously a hugely divisive issue that contributes to that wrong-track feeling a lot of people have. Consider this, though: Only 19% of American say the law has harmed them in any way, while 9% say it has helped and 69% say it hasn’t affected them at all. That 19% is too high, but it’s a good bet that number will go down and the percentage helped by the law will go up. As the feds work out the kinks, more people enroll and the initial fear factor (along with the partisan attacks) wear off. For something that has generated so much hostility and concern, Obamacare may end up not changing all that much for all that many people.
What’s missing in all of this gloom-mongering is the optimism and initiative we like to associate with America. The antics in Washington clearly depress a lot of people, but what makes it so hard to turn off the TV or the iPad and focus on what real people are doing to get ahead? And just how much revitalization is the government or the business world or some anonymous “they” supposed to provide before people get it in gear?
Oh well, It was sufficient enough for Bulky Bob to throw the pope under the bus.
Can we just suspend your racist, right-fringe horse hockey for ONE DAY?
Perhaps the GOP should have participated on the national level, too? ?? ???
What would you be able to post if you didn't have various greater minds to quote?
All those people with all those diverse opinions elect kumquats to lead this nation into a ditch.
They've earned it in the past 30 years.
Oops, now the nutties are going to say this proves I'm actually Hooz, or he is me, or something ...
What a grand -- an deluded -- opinion you have of your argumentative skills.
Do you have freedom of religion? If you're Mormon, the GOVT. forbids you multiple wives.
Do you have freedom of speech? Except for slander, or when you yell "fire" in a crowded theater.
Do you have freedom of assembly? Not when you need a GOVT permit for a gathering or a parade. Or when Bush rounds you up in a pen blocks from where he's speaking.
Freedom from searches and seizures? Not if the TSA finds you Swiss Army nail clipper while fondling you.
Free to carry any kind of firearms you want? RPG's or machine guns? Nuclear bombs? Torpedoes for your private submarine? 70mm FFARs for your Cessna?
Grow up Sparty.
