I'm sorry for coming up with such a ridiculous strawman.  The Democrats would come up with far more sensible things than what I proposed, such as giving teachers' unions more generous Viagra coverage and creating American jobs by teaching Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.  And yes, the Republicans, especially the squeezy liberal Mike Castle/Lisa Murkowski type, often come up with equally stupid things, which is part of the reason why I'm not a blue avatar.

I'm going to go rob an old lady.  You see, the laws pertaining to robbing old ladies are really open to creative interpretation beyond their original intent.  After all, I have really good reasons to rob that old lady, and she's a cranky old coot anyway.

Are you implying that the only people with a "legitimate ideology" support an interventionist foreign policy?  Because if so, you've reached the pinnacle of arrogant hackery right there.

Not at all.  I'm saying that neoconservativism is a legitimate ideology.

I'm not exactly sure what an "illegitimate" ideology would entail.  Neoconism is an idiotic ideology.  An idiotic, legitimate, idiotic ideology.

Careful now.  Supporting a non-interventionist foreign policy is tantamount to worshiping Hitler.

I wouldn't go that far.  You're probably just too embarrassed to admit you masturbate to pictures of Neville Chamberlain.

Wow. He could serve in that seat for decades if he wins.

Or if he doesn't end up going to prison.

Exactly what I was thinking

Why is it so hard for Democrats and Liberals to decry the corrupt sleeze within. I guess the answer is loud and clear. In the mind of lefties, the only people who are corrupt are those that disagree with them politically.

The Supreme Court has addressed the issue a number of times.

And the Supreme Court is infallible, of course.

Well, it IS supposed to be the final authority on the issue.  That doesn't mean you can disagree with the Supremes as long as you remember you're just some dude and they're, you know, the Supreme Court.  (My feeling towards, say, Citizens United: I disagree, but you're the Supreme Court and I'm not)

Il Duce is always right!

You're not allowed to suggest that Republicans lost a race because they knew nothing about issues and the Democrat was smarter and more informed than them even if it's true, Ogre Mage. Apparently it makes you a hack.

Yes.  Only by being poor can you deserve money.  Therefore everyone should try to be as poor as possible, so that they can be the most deserving.

Yes, we need more Lincoln Chafees.

Lincoln Chaffee was never in the leadership.

Just talking about the type of GOPer Jamfest wants.

Unless that personal freedom involves guns, money or toys at McDonalds.

Yes, my freedom to shoot somebody is far more important to me than the freedom to enjoy happy and intoxicated lifestyle.

Yes! I finally made it into this thread.  I've been trying for months.

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

straw0man strikes again!

It's not the kids that want the toy that are buying the food, it's their parents for God's sake. Why can't the parents discriminate about what to buy their kids? When I was five and I only got my Chicken McNuggets and not my toy, sure I was angry, but it's not like I had any control over whether my parents wanted to buy me a toy or not. THE PARENTS ARE THE ONE BUYING THE FOOD.
See, lefties think they are smarter than EVERYbody else (even other lefties) and they KNOW they are smarter than "brown" people.  Now by itself that's not a horrible thing, kind of dickish, but a lot of people are dickish.  Where the lefties go tragically wrong is that they think that their superior intelligence is something that should be forced on other people.  They know McDonalds is wrong and if it's given to kids it's child abuse.  For reasons the lefties can't even fathom, other people take their kids to this den of commercialism all the time.  Especially poor people and even more especially, poor brown people.  They know this must be stopped and since most of them are authoritarians at heart, they see the govt as the best hammer for this particular nail.  Expect more of this in the future.

I think the label might not fit this time Batman.  Lefties are doing this because they know better than poor people what the poor people should feed their kids.  Acknowledging that and calling it stupid isn't a strawman, it's stating a fact.

Blacks vote for blacks.  Whites vote for whites.  Nothing else matters except race.  It's demeaning, actually.

More like black voters vote for black and white candidates (every recent Dem pres nominee before Obama), whites vote for whites. But, see the third chart... and imagine what the outcome is when one side significantly outnumbers the other.

http://elections.nytimes.com/2008/results/states/exitpolls/alabama.html

Ah yes, the old "whites are racist, but blacks cannot possibly be racist" canard.

Why is this controversial?  Most Americans believe in creation and the park artist renderings look interesting if they can pull it off.  I'd like to see a correctly sized Ark just to see what it was like from the Bible and would pay to go there.  We see the seeds of persecution coming down the pipeline.  Not too long from now you all will be calling for beheadings of Christians under the sway of a one world dictator - leave us alone until your time comes.

liberals are basically unwilling to allow those unwilling-to-work the freedom to starve to death, and instead believe the solution for helping those unwilling-to-work is to turn them into leeches sucking the lifeblood out of the freedom of those who are willing-to-work.

Folks in the U.S. are more willing to submit to airport pat-downs than they were in Thomas Jefferson's day.

But they didn't have airplanes back then.  So therefor health care is constitutional.

Amazing. Only seven responses. If this was a Republican or a member of a certain grassroots conservative organization saying this, it would easily be a seven page discussion about racism.

It's so upsetting that whoever said this can't accept that a black man is President of the United States (a la the Joe Wilson incident).

No, it was a Democrat who said it, so its about something other than racism.

Of course.  Only Republicans are racist.  Democrats can't be because they're special.  Like the late Senator who was the former Grand Kleagle of the Klu Klux Klan.
