Flounder, Punked --- what are you a 12 yo kid? One does not get punked in an intellectual debate.
To get punked is to have a joke played on you, often in a public setting.
There was no joke played on you ... you are the joke when it come to thinking for yourself.
Flounder, if you cannot figure that out you are truly Rodent slow and require to be spoon fed information. You better get that hockey helmet on so you don't hurt yourself trying to think for yourself. Maybe if you ask nice, a blogger from ThinkProgress or DailyKos will give you a cleaver retort.
Why, are you too slow to see the connection? You want government control in all aspects of ones life.... Flounder, then you have to live with the loss of sanity and clarity of reason of elected and non elected officials.
"...Like the Cubs winning the World Series..." Since I gave up on the Cubs after 40 plus years and switched to the AL and the Motor City Kitties (the DH is hard to take) , the odds on the Baby Bears winning the WS has greatly improved..
Flounder, you should be applauding her.... she is no different than Sandra Fluke would wanted government action for her perceived slight of rights. With your eye migration as you aged, you should have a wide perspective and not be so blind to personal "rights" If it is OK to use of the courts to "solve" social concerns in one case it must be OK for all instances. .
From Forbes article in April, 2015 "National Debt Tops $18 Trillion: Guess How Much You Owe?" -- " The chart below contains this data which shows how it has more than doubled over the past 11 years, rising from $72,051 per taxpayer in 2004 to $154,161 today. As the debt continues higher, the liability of every taxpayer is also rising."...." GDP – which is the total of all goods and services produced in the U.S. – is $17.0 trillion and the debt is the same amount, the ratio would be 100%. As the debt rises beyond GDP, the ratio will exceed 100%. This indicates that the debt is greater than the total of what we produce. You might equate it to an individual’s debt-to-income ratio which helps lenders assess an individual’s ability to repay a loan. America’s debt-to-GDP ratio in 1980 was only 35.4%. Ten years later it was 57.7%. As you can see from the chart below, America’s debt-to-GDP ratio has continued to rise and today stands at 102.6%" IMO, we are on the path to being Greece.
Flounder, You are good at copy and paste -- just copy the books name into your search engine hit paste then search. The reading level is elementary so you should be able to handle reading the book, but the concepts are in likelihood beyond you abilities. But give it a try any ways. I was good enough to even site the authors--- unlike all the work of others you steal.
why not ... lets trade in 200 years of crony capitalism for a period of crony socialism. both systems are equally corrupt but in the least, everyone that is not "held down" by statist educational policies in crony capitalism has a chance to get ahead where as in crony socialism -- everyone can be poor except the "ruling" class.
Carson, re: 3 please read "Colonisation After Emancipation" by Phillip Magness and Sebastian Page or at the very least the reviews and excerpts available on line.
" Of the 26 attacks since 9/11 that the group defined as terror," -- funny how one must take the deaths from the twin towers out of the equation to get a head line that fits an narrative. How about "Since Friday 06/26/15 ISIS inspired terrorist have killed more people than left wind inspired terrorist" --- that is just as accurate of a take on the numbers.
I would argue that the plantation mentality of the Progressive wing of the Democratic party is more in line with the "those they consider "inferior"" -- based solely on their principles. Instead of "IMHO" look to see which group donates more money and time to "underprivileged causes" out of their own pocket... I think you will be surprised to find out you opinion is not based in fact.
I don't have a problem with that.... actually no to your assertion it is the Republican Dream, it is the Libertarian who leans toward anarchist dream. Modern Republicans are no different than Modern Democrats -- both want big Federal Governments, they just differ in where to spend the money.
media matters (do you accept them as reputable? I don't but what the heck)
"President Obama's healthcare law will spend about $2 trillion over the next decade on expanding insurance coverage but still leave 31 million Americans uninsured, according to an analysis from the Congressional Budget Office released on Monday.
When Obama pitched the healthcare law to Congress, he said it would cost "around $900 billion" over 10 years. But his statement was misleading because the way the law was designed, the major spending provisions didn't kick in until 2014. This meant that 10-year estimates at the time the law was passed in 2010 were artificially low, because they included four years (2010 through 2013) in which spending was negligible.
The new CBO analysis finds that between fiscal years 2016 and 2025, spending on the law's expansion of Medicaid will cost $920 billion and insurance exchange subsidies will cost nearly $1.1 trillion. The major spending provisions, taken together, will total $1.993 trillion"
You know how the CBO works? They can only score what is put in front of them.... no what ifs and the CBO has never been able to forecast because they cannot "look" as reality, just what is put in front of the. I would have had the same reply (you can find my past posts on the CBO) if the numbers had come out opposite. Why use faulty numbers?
If they actively exclude or punish based on race then "racial superiority, segregation" apply, Insurrection/violence is covering in other posting as well as treason. Flounder, you need to learn the history of the Progressives as well as the Unions --- you are just coming off as rodent stupid now.
still will be cheaper in the long run to kill it.
Don't you read any thing but bloggers "And yet somehow they had never actually produced an answer to what they'd do if the court gutted Obamacare." -- there were quite a few plans on the table if the Sc would have ruled opposite. Educate yourself Flounder and don't rely on bloggers to do your thinking.
Flounder -- you have to be open to reading the sources.
You argument is garbage --- since all Americans are members of the American population, then any violence by one citizen against another is not an act of racial superiority, segregation, insurrection or treason." regardless of intent by your reasoning ---- you are Rodent stupid.
