Hate is the Force that Gives the Left Meaning
By Daniel Greenfield
Just because it failed once is no guarantee that it will fail a second time ! Now the outlook is not good simply becaus anything Obama and the democrates trys is sabotaged by your republicants !As time goes by more and more of the voting public sees what your side is doing and they just aren't going to support that horsesh^t !
my typing skills are severely lacking when it comes to spelling government. it may have been that cute blonde in typing class that i was so enamoured with that kept me from aquiring the skill.
fred...thanks for agreeing. for too long i think our trade policies have been overgenerous to those in which we trade with. with the start of NAFTA with the Clintons and probably much sooner, i think that our political machine is really working in unison. many of the decisions that leave both side of the aisle scratching their respective heads has to be an indication that something may be amiss at the top levels of our governemnt or even the behind the veil notions. the so-called tea-party intrusion into the old-guard two party system was an eye-opener for me. either way when we begin to answer to the governemnt more than they answer to us, wewill surely know we are on a downward spiral to governemnt servitude.
BobBarker...i think it is said with more of a snicker than a sneer. the problem with trying new things is that the things he is trying has been done before with very little or any success..and not without a cost. fred is the history guru on here and can probably attest to almost every notion about governance has been already thought of and experimented with. it is funny how we as humans try and resurrect failed societal and political ideas while being falsely being arrogant enough to think they will work now simply because is we that are doing it and not they. silly humans.
You republicans cant say things like "bigger government or liberal" without a sneer, just listen to your hero Rush ! Maybe the thing is that there might be bigger government and you righties wont get much of a say in it because of the strategy you have chosen !Who's to say that bigger government is necessarily a bad thing ? Like all that Obama is trying it's different and that takes the right out of their comfort zone !
@LTS - You won't get any argument from me on that, but both Bushes and Clinton pushed NAFTA and CAFTA as well ...
Alleged conservatives don't seem to mind government if it means that they can get development money, corporate-welfare, or Hurricane "Sandy" storm-relief money that they can siphon off into local private projects and brag about come election time. The only time that righties don't like "government" is when it's used to help the poor or unemployed!
fred ..i am afraid to say that Obama may give his wrist whiplash from whipping out the pen to ink that trans-pacific trade deal. why no threat of veto?
@Tired - Yes, Native Americans were indeed warlike before and after the arrival of Europeans, but the Europeans introduced firearms and other items of technology that made the Indians dependent upon European trade goods and, once caught in the embrace of "cultural shock", the destruction of their way of life was inevitable ... Sort of like we are today with junk we buy from China! The proposed Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal (the latest variation of NAFTA that BOTH Ds and Rs are pushing) might be compared to the deal that Peter Minuit made to buy Manhattan Island for a handful of beads!
Well said and there is but one solution for the left, more government.
create a reason for being. they have never seen a solution that did not need a problem.
Tiredofit...the democrats have realized and capitalized on the rule of following the path of least resistance. they are the staples easy button of politics. i also think it is so hilarious how they ensure charity and compassion by legislating at what level our compassion will be. there is really no sense wating your time and expending the energy to reach into your own pocket to be charitable when it is just as easy to allow them to do it for you. the jobless claims dropped which is normally a reason to celebrate but it seems to be an obstacle in the democrats way for their rallying cry to extend unemployment benefits(entitlement...you get more out than you pay in). take the time to have your employer calculate up what they have paid in verses your potential accrued draw. i hope people realize that the employee pays nothing toward the unemployment insurance...which is not insurance. anyway in their minds, whether there is a fabricated victim or not, the democratic party will always cre
True, LTS. One thing we could use more of is a work ethic in this country. People on unemployment should consider their JOB to be finding a job 8 hours a day. But far too many ride the benefits to the end and then go look for work, I know several personally. Of course society has been getting more of an entitlement attitude for some time now and I don't think it's going to change soon.
Tiredofit, work ethic is a great thing. many things in life prove to be a great motivator, but the greatest is the parent that sets the wheels in motion in their children. both of my girls aquired jobs outside of my control while going not only to high school but college and eventually grad school for the oldest. the youngest will graduate with two full four year degress next spring. she accomplished that by accumulating two years of college credits while attending a local private college for her junior and senior year of high school....while working no less. unless one is physically or mentally handicapped in some debilitating fashion, i do not want to hear "i can't" when they actually mean "i won't". that is unacceptable.
I remember the first time my son went the hay fields, he was only about 8 and worked all day, as best he could, for a local farmer, the farmer paid him at the end of the day, he then handed the money to me. I handed it right back and told him you earned it like a man, you may spend it like a man. He held on to that for a long time.
"Indians were not the peaceful lot..."
I think anyone with a little bit of knowledge in North American history realizes that.
hardest work I ever did. Made sure my son got his turn as a young man
LTS we call it hay season here, hot hot hot heavy work in the summer sun, cannot quit till its all in the barn
Indians were not the peaceful lot that some would have you believe They were as war like as anyone amongst themselves before we got here
