just like during viet nam, george w bush is single handedly defending the beaches of alabama from invasion- if he and cheney had never invaded iraq, the world would not be in the mess its in right now
patriot quit blaming obama for all your failures- your failure to thrive in this economy and country is due to your own failings, not that of obama- obama has not raised your taxes- you still don't make enough to pay taxes- go back to school and get your g.e.d.- then go to trade school- not everyone is cut out fot college but the country will always need plumbers- quit asking for welfare, quit blaming others for your failures and get a job- people like me who are suceeding in this economy are sick and tired of people like you who fail to take responsibility for their own shortcomings and blame the president or congress or bureaucrats or liberals or conservatives for their failing- man up and quit whining
look up the definitions of liberal and conservative- i am using the definitions as have beem used historically for the last two hundred and fifty years- i'm not using definitions created by political groups with their own agendas
I suppose it depends on how you define "liberal" and "conservative"- Jesus was an agent for change, liberals advocate change to make things better- conservatives try and protect the status quo- during the revolutionary war, jefferson, washington, adams were all liberals- they promoted the break away from english rule- the conservatives, aka the tories, sided with the king and opposed the war- 18th century liberals like locke and milton promoted individual liberty and a free market capitalism- 19th and twentieth century liberals realized that free market capitalism can't work, that you need government regulation or you end up with robber barons- read the first half of upton sinclair's "the Jungle", which documents what the Chicago meat packing industry was like at the beginning of the twentieth century- there was no government regulation at all- as a result, sick and long dead cows were butchered and sold to the public- workers would lose arms and the meat packers would grind them up and put it in the sausage- as a result of that book, the food and drug administration was created- you seem to be anti-socialist, but i bet you have taken advantage of the biggest socialist program in the country- in the late 1920s and early 30s, this country was in deep danger of going communist- less than one in twenty americans owned their own homes- a socialist program was passed that still exists today- the home mortgage interest deduction- you and most conservatives who didn't inherit their wealth use this socialistic program- its the renters and those who own their homes free and clear who subsidize the people that borrow money to buy their homes- if you deduct interest, you are getting government welfare just like the people on food stamps
another district ruled the other way- the effect of this decision will be stayed pending an en banc hearing by the entire appeals court and the supreme court
first of all, i'm apolitical- second, the court of appeals are split so the issue won't be decided by the supreme court for at least a year-. third, servicemen who are liberal democrats have been fighting alongside conservative republican servicemen for the last 150 years defending the rights of other americans to think what they want- i have never seen anyone who served in the military anonymously try to insult someone on a message board for having views different from theirs- as an aside, being a liberal is not a bad thing since jesus christ was a liberal- i don't know enough about the affordable health care act to opine on its merits but i do know conservatives who like at least parts of it- abolishing the preexisting condition and letting kids stay on a policy until they are 26- i believe the next terrorist attack on the us will be via a biological weapon and i believe a healthy population will have a better chance to withstand such an attack- i also believe that anonymous attempts to insult those you don't agree with are cowardly attacks that insult all the americans who died or suffered physical or mental injuries defending your rights of free speech- i think people like you are as cowardly as those like #$%$ cheney, newt gingrich and mitt romney who are more than willing to send other people's sons and daughters off to fight wars when they themselves dodged the draft and refused to serve
the companies may be active- that is business- but to realign with russia economically or geopolitically would not be looked at favorably by the german people- russia's defacto invasion and annexation of crimea and their attempt to take over eastern ukraine has all the people of eastern europe nervous- while they may be annoyed by the nsa spying, they haven't forgotten the stasni and the oppression that russia imposed on eastern germany- we might be nuisance but we are half way around the world- russia is a definite threat with putin's desire to regrow russian power and they are just down the block
moses- based on the historical animosity between the german people and the russians, and the lingering resentment of 40 years of russian occupation of half their country, do you think the german people will allow their politicians to leave the western bloc and realign politically with their former masters?
you know the terms of your probation require to stay away from children
how about george soros? he just added 9 million dollars in purchasing along with his positions in the big gold miners- you may not like his politics or his lifestyle, but he is one of the best stock pickers in the world
there you are otto- i thought you killed yourself based on what was going on this morning- you otto know better than to wage a short and distort campaign
why should anyone listen to you- everyone knows that the fed prints money and the fed is independent of the president- in addition, congress initiates and passes the budget- presidents always ask for money, but the buck stops with congress on spending- based on your limited knowledge of politics and government spending, you must be a witch doctor not an m.d.
