Spitting on the Sidewalk

Our politicians criminalize more stuff every year.

Under a Democrat congress and presidency walking and chewing gum will be a felony. Because they can't do it.

LibDems are constantly banning and criminalizing things, restricting freedoms that impact our everyday lives in very real ways.
And they say Repubs and Bush infringe on our freedoms. Lol...

Umm, they're already crimes, DDD. Have been for some time.
Libs want to control every bit of our lives and they are doing so by implementing their Slippery Slope one ban and one law at a time.
But you weep endlessly about mean ol' Bushie trying to keep America safe... Lol...

No, I only call treason "treason", Dishonest Dingo. (You wouldn't happen to be related to Dishonest Dave, would you?)

No surprise DDD supports added penalties for thoughts. Nah, that's not at all Fascist.
Oh, and then he turns right around and promotes the Racial Double Standard in applying Hate Crime statutes. Typical.

My opinion? They should get rid of or down size the so called "Federal" government because it's rife with corruption.

This Lib vs Con mentality just pits people against each other when people should be banding together for America, not special interest groups or the corporate whores.

Why is it that the news media cares more about Angelina Jolie's twins than the nine G.I. s who recently were killed? I'll tell you why. It's called selective conditioning. Been going on since the first newspaper was published.

"I think you'd have a hard time making the case that Bush can walk and chew gum at the same time."

Flying a fighter jet, I think, requires pretty decent mental and physical coordination.

Franny Ward's dead on. These stupid shows like "The Situation Room", "Countdown with Keith Olberman, " and "Hannity and Colmes" are devices to help polarize the nation rather than unify us. Defining "Red State/Blue State" furthers the divide in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. We're electing too many politicians with views too extreme to the left (Obama) or to the right (Bush) to ever be worthy of compromising.

It's becoming night in america...

And with Uber-liberals refusing to cooperate or comprimise, rather settling for one-liners guaranteed to make "The Situation Room" headlines, I see a mess that has resulted in a great divide. Remember 2000, BEFORE W took office? Was the split election enough of a hint?

Take the energy issue - you uber-liberals have a sharp refusal to see the answer in any other fashion than yours, therefore refusing to compromise to benefit the country as a whole now and in the future. The republicans, despite their horrendous environmental records, realize that a green world must be in our future, but at the same time, understand that we need immediate stability. They're trying to make a balance between the present and future.

Let's not forget to mention that while you mention 'extreme' right, the left has produced one of their most extreme (and inexpereinced) members as a presidential candidate, ho-bama, you know, tied for the most liberal rating this last session.Yet somehow the right ended up squeezing out a moderate this time around, how did that happen if they're way too extreme???

Don’t even validate Dishonest Dave’s calculated dishonesty with reasonable discussion, S. He along with everyone else knows that the divide has come from the Left. He even admits to spporting the LibDems obstruction in Congress that has resulted in nothing getting done and record low approval ratings, due to his vicious blind partisanship and petty personal dislike of Bush.

Depite the repeated lies from the Left, clearly Repubs more often cross the isle while it is the Dems who are lockstep partisans unwilling to compromise.
(Kinda like how all we hear about race from the Left is that whitey is mean to blackie. While reality says that is no longer the case and it is bitter black racists who have been causing our continued racial strife.)
Heck, they didn't support and still refuse to admit the success of Bush's troop surge! -What's that tell you about their level of blind oposition?!

In short, the Left is lying to us. Again. Big surprise.

And we can expect more of this divisive dishonesty with Obama’s calls for “unity”. Even a dummy like Dave well knows that O’s idea of unity will require everyone to blindly accept his radical brand of Liberalism and any who fail to jump inline will be labeld “dividers”.

Nope, DDD. Even on a local level the Dem partisanship is apparent. After each election we get the breakdown of who voted and how. And always it is Repubs who in great numbers cross lines and split tickets while the Dems largely do not. Heck, for a “Repub county” we sure have elected some Dem presidents in recent years.

Simply saying otherwise in your usual dishonest feeble attempt at spin changes not this fact. If you were unaware or otherwise ignorant of these facts, your words here would be forgivable. But since we all know that you indeed are very politically conscious, your dishonest display here just makes you a common liar.

(I swear, just once I’d like to see Dishonest Dave Diano post with some intellectual honesty. Just once.)

yessir, diano's got a lot to learn:

1) I think that if there were more resentment to having a JOhn McCain on the ticket, we would have seen far more slandering, mud slinging and independent ads. McCain appealed to the early states as opposed to a romney, or a lesser extent, Huckabee.

2)Here we go again, should I waste my time on the "big business only" claims? Sure, why not. Republicans are making A LOT more sense than any liberal acting like a professional wrestler saying anything into a mic for cheers. There is ZERO guarantee that we can replace oil for another technology in 5 years, none by 10 none by 15. Tell me funding and I'll ask you how cancer studies have done. You need the short term stability before you bring in the new wave. The uber-liberals seem to forgo understanding this fact, settling for shoving their thumbs up their rear ends. By the way, will we be driving cars with windmills on them? I still haven't seen the electric vehicle capable of handling "true" family life situations that aren't the size of my garbage can.

3) Drilling brings stability in the short term as we await our new technologies in the mid to long term. Windfall Profits taxes will not.

4)If those millions of acres were thought to be of any use or contain stable amounts of oil, don't you think oil companies would have drilled? I tend to believe that these oil companies, based on their research better qualified than any politician, reporter or think tank, can determine the feasibility of specific sites. I love those "misnomer" stats - always used to mis-lead. Here's one for you, why did Joe Dimaggio home run count in the 300's? was he simply not a HR hitter? Or did it have to do with the fact that he was a righty, and the left field bleachers were around 450' in his playing days, well beyond anyone else in MLB at the time (or now). Analysts have stated he would have been in the 500 club if he didn't play in yankee stadium, while Howard Eskin states he just wasn't a HR hitter. What do you believe?


my bottom line is that the democratic party wants to promote a terrible future for this country! Leave Social security as it is? (Why can't I use Vanguard for my retirement?) Windfall profits tax? (You want gas to increase even more?) Alternative power sources (What do we do until then?) Leave Iraq (Without abandoning or new adopted child? Without Stabilizing?) Once upon a time, the Democrats used to make a lot of sense to me, today, I question whether or not they make a lot of sense to themselves!

We're a long way from the days of gentlemen-like comrpomises involving Tip O'Neal and Gerry Ford, in which they resolved issues to benefit our nation as a whole rather than chalk one up on their own side...

I gotta say, Dave, you really sound like you hate America. And "progressive" you don't seem at all progressive. Kinda hurt feelings-y, even, living in the past.

Rather than your usual dishonestly of distorting my words, please include my qualifier of only shooting traitors and deserters in the back, like we used to in the old days. Thanks, Dishonest Dave.

Hey, ya murder any company executives lately just because you personaly don't like their legal products? (hehehe)

If this were the 60's you'd be out there spitting on our returning troops, ya dirtbag. Or on second thought, maybe you wouldn't. But only because you are a coward. But you'd sure want to and would be urging others to.

Your silliness here still doesn’t distract from the fact that you want to see murdered fellow Americans for no more reason than they hurt your feelings. And you don't even smoke.

You sure do bring some deep childish positions here, DDD. Is it any wonder everyone takes you seriously? (snicker)

I keep telling you, ya do it to yourself.

Diano,


1) Neo-con commentators slammed McCain, but it was the voters who elected McCain the GOP nominee. The people have spoken despite the Media, isn't that a nice feeling.

2) YOu must crave repetition. We haven't seen the line of vehicles that handle true everyday life situations. I'm sorry, but super small vehicles aren't the perfect match for mothers of three, and I don't see that hydrogen minivan ready to hit the market in a wave of opportunity. You are blind to the fact that the electric car has been in the works for over 20 years yet we can't get any further than a small vehicle that isn't mass produced yet still can't produce the torque to stay in the big lanes. An Al Gore threat isn't going to improve technology. Drill now because we have NO guarantee anything will come about. Why drill? There's much more interest in developing new technologies this time around as opposed to crises of the 70s. Americans aren't ready to rest once prices go down.

3. The day I believe in the energy department is the day I give up in any form of free thought. The energy department is useless, zero plannign has led to where we are now.

4. I really could care less about leasehold sites and why they still hold them. You're changing the subject on this one, if you want to argue it, start a conversation with jonas and I'm sure he'll educate you on the process. How much do you want to bet that there's a kick-out penalty in which the oil company pays for breaking the lease?

Of course I'd rather trust my social security to the market! Why? because I'm not depending on my s.s. to begin with! Let the market invest my dollars for a more promising payout in retirement as opposed to getting change through the S.S.A each month. Your "well others did it so should we" sounds like one of those old fraternity types stating "Well, we were hazed as pledges so we should do the same!". You want REAL CHANGE? Let citizens determine the course of their own S.S. investements!

The high price is absolutely shortages. HIgher demand is met with higher prices, it's basic economics! More supply balances the demand.

Refusing to admit that SS is sinking and in need of an overhaul, even when faced with undeniable evidence, isn’t very “progressive” of the LibDems.
But the obstructionists will somehow blame Bush.

1. and in a democratic race of truly intelligent voters, a better candidate would have arisen. now you have your "American Idol" candidate (ooh, I like that line, Randal, let's start using it!). Will Ryan Secrest host the election this November?

2. See what i mean, still no advances for REAL working Americans, not the single, Disp. Income types whose lifestyle can work with a small car! Until there's advances for bigger vehicles (and not a GMC Yukon making low 20's city, if that), we've done nothing. Don't get me started on Cell phone batteries, they die out from use VERY quickly...


3. Standard point towards Bush. He hasn't been president since the late 70s, homey. EVERY administration since and including Carter is at fault here. If action was taken in the 80s or 90s we wouldn't be here. No planning, nothing. The energy department is the status quo department.

4. You're right, they probably don't have termination fees for those leases. Then again, they probably do. But again, it goes back to changing the subject that additional exploration is necessary to fill demand domestically until someone fufills my demands in #1 above.



Secoail Security? I'd rather see myself taking control of it and choosing my own destiny? Why shouldn't I be allowed to do so? Yet another nonnsensical big government waste.
