You criticize citations from respected newspapers and then refer me to a right-wing shill?

Doesn't surprise me in the least.

You still don't get it - and I'm afraid never will.

These people have been picking your pockets while waving the flag.





Why don't you look at the homes being forclosed? (www.foreclosurestore.com) Let's try something neutral, like McCains Home State (Las Vegas Zip = 89191). Scan through a few pages of listings. These aren't homes for the poor. This is nation wide. It's not socialism that got us into the mess; it's deregulation. Don't bother looking under the bed for Stalin and his boogy-men.

Redistribution of wealth? Take a look at federal spending: the industrial states pay, the rural states collect. For Palin's Alaska, it's $33K Federal dollars per person. Price supports and subsidies to farmers. Ranchers grazing on government land for a tiny fraction of the cost of grazing rights. Socialism? Where've you been? Why not call in to Levin (or Rush Limbaugh) and ask them about the traditional socialist welfare "state" of rural America, the very heart of "conservatism".


Most of all: Who had 2000 - 2006 to FIX IT and didn't do squat?
Then ask why.

Ask that last questions over and over until you figure out the answer.

"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." - Albert Einstein

"How do you find out if you're unwanted if everyone you try to ask tells you to stop bothering them and just go away?" - Balboos HaGadol



"It's a sad state of affairs, indeed, when you start reading my tag lines for some sort of enlightenment?" - Balboos HaGadol
