    And it came to pass.....
    And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America, having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as The One. He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go , therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed."

    And the people rejoiced. For even though they knew not what The One would do, He had promised that it was good; and they believed..

    And The One said "We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"

    And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Change is good!"

    Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,"----

    And the people said "Sock it to them!"

    "---- And redistribute their wealth."

    And the people said, "Show us the money!"

    And then He said, "Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody"

    And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??"

    And The One ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

    One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?"

    And she was banished from the kingdom!

    Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?"

    And The One said, "Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!"

    And the people said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!"

    Then The One said, "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes."

    And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes."

    So The One said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!"

    And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Show us the money!"

    Then The One said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!"

    And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

    And He said, "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited health care and medicine and transportation to the clinics."

    And the people said, "Gim'me some of that!"

    Then He said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."

    And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

    Then The One said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!"

    And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates."

    So The One said, "Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!"

    Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bilingual signs and guaranteed housing..."

    And the people said, "Hallelujah!!" And they made him King!

    And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

    Then The One said, "I am the The One - The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!"

    But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more..."

    And the people said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!"

    And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist State and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

    And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?"

    But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change The One had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

    And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!"

    But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

    I'm not sure but I thought I might have detected a bitter, and definitely sarcastic tone in there somewhere. :rolleyes:

    You know, sarcasm comes about because of anger.

    What have ya got to be angry about? :D

    Besides, Obismal has it all figured out. :cool:

    Sounds like a tale that will be told by our grandchildren to their children as they sit freezing and hungry in a dark, decaying socialist nation. And they will curse us for having let it happen.

    Reality 101

    Welcome students, please take your seat.
    My name is Professor SlamDunk and I'll be teaching this class.

    I understand that some of you just graduated from a Sunday School Lesson as taught by my colleague 22WRF. I understand from reading these transcripts here that it was actually executed in poorly worded Elizabethan English in the King James style to add weight and credence where none was due. Please, if you will, allow me to retort in the style of studied literary professor with markedly better phrase and a learned economy for words.


    It came to pass in the United States of America that a minority of mildly paranoid right-wing neoconservatives found their ideology suddenly out of favor. "We must blame the loss of morality!" shouted the captains of politic responsible for the admitted torture of their fellow man. "America has chosen a new President who offers Hope and Change in the place of Fear and War!" they cried, hands held high and still bloodied from the four thousand dead soldiers sent to die in a war without end. "He has no experience!" they screamed in unison, while somewhere a filing cabinet sits with an unclassified version of Texas Air National Guard attendence sheets remains undisturbed. "A brother to terrorists! A Muslim and a terrorist!" they shriek, with the exception of retired General Oliver North. A handshake between Rumsfeld and Saddam Hussein left conspicuously off-air.

    But the people didn't buy it. You see, students, by this point they had considerable time to think. The crisis of 9/11 that had traumatized our country and enabled the opportunists to pass the Patriot Act and eventually invade Iraq had begun to dull in the minds of the citizenry. When you are afraid, the human response is instinctual - to give up whatever it takes to feel secure. The lords of conservatism know this, and did their absolute best to pump America full of as much fear as possible. But, friends, fear works like a drug. You need more and more of it to get the same effect, and eventually it wears off over time. Despite the repeat invokations of September 11th by the Great Darkness that swept the land these past eight years, bit by bit, the people began to wake.

    All of a sudden, the country realized that the income gap had grown substantially. The richer got so much richer and the poorer got so much poorer. The guy in charge had actually reduced taxes on the richest 1% of the people in America, who were coincidentally his owners. Deregulation had built a trap into the economy which was headed for destruction, and more people in the country were without health insurance than ever before. Two bungled wars in faraway lands, one without purpose and the other without plan, and the United States took the biggest hit on the international stage of diplomacy since the founding of our country.

    "Just because he can't talk good don't mean he ain't smart!" most who had voted for the idiot retorted. Whether or not our children is learning, misunderestimating putting food on people's families, fish and humans coexisting peacefully and remarkable war on the evildoers in the form of a crusade - these mind-boggling statements so non-chalantly uttered by the man in the cowboy hat absent a brain. And yet, the spoiled Admiral's Son and Wolf-Killer Beauty Queen took to the road in a bus to proclaim the damnation of our nation at the hands of a socialist islamic plot by domestic terrorists who hate America. Pulling the microphone back from the insane woman in the crowd incited to cries of "TREASON!" it was declared that the fundamentals of the economy were strong. The man who was tortured for our country caved to the cowboy on allowing our country to torture.

    Along this road, a Joe who is not a Joe who is a Plumber who is not a Plumber asked why the bringer of Hope and Change would tax his imaginary income more. "Do you make more than $250,000 a year, sir?" And the Joe who is not a Joe who is a Plumber who is not a Plumber could not respond, because he did not make that much a year and would not make that much a year. If he had made that much a year, he, like the rest of the country, could expect a return to the tax rate as it was under Clinton, our most prosperous economic time in recent history.

    "Isn't that Marxist?" Fox News reporter and wife of GOP Media News Consultant inquired to the man who rode the Amtrak to work. Now students, who among you can define a redistribution of wealth? Is this necessarily a bad thing? For extra credit, a five paragraph essay on how every single tax system since the dawn of time has been a "redistribution of wealth". For double points, work in the following quote by Teddy Roosevelt - "The man of great wealth owes a particular obligation to the state, because he derives special advantages from the mere existence of government."

    But back to our story. At this point, a citizen asked "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" My apologies, students, but no one actually asked that. See, anyone who was paying attention would note that our current President at the time, who also had no military experience and no foreign relations knowledge, had so catastrophically screwed things up on a global scale. From molesting the shoulders of the German Prime Minister, to saying "Goodbye from the worlds top polluter!" at G8 conferenece, to appointing the most hated diplomat in the country as U.N. Ambassador, the man in the cowboy hat seemed to loathe the very concept of other nations.

    At some point, the schizophrenic folks in charge began to lose the ability to differentiate between terrorist, islamic, and enemy of the state. In their mind, Kim Jong Il is a terrorist, and may even be islamic! The concept of opening diplomatic talks with North Korea or Iran (as opposed to outright bombing/invading them) is abhorrent to the neoconservative ideology. Diplomacy after all else has failed is the moving motto of the man in the cowboy hat.

    The bringer of Hope and Change said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes!" Then one solitary voice said "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes!". No one was able to see that the voice had come from a 2-month old infant, counted alongside other children ages 1-18, retirees ages 65 and over, mothers with infants who stay at home, the rising number of unemployed and a multitude of mid-western farmers who pay no taxes but instead receive a healthy subsidy from the government. Of this 40% of Americans, indeed, none pay federal tax. Though they do pay sales tax, excise tax, and other tax. "Statistics are fun!" shouted the same baby, as the man in the cowboy hat's approval rating fell to single digits.

    Then the bringer of Hope and Change said "I will fix the healthcare system and raise the minimum wage!" The response from the nation's hospital sick and dying was a belated "Hooray!" and the least among us in the fast food restaurants and minimum wage jobs yearned to see their quality of life improve, if only a little. "I will penalize employers who ship jobs overseas!" the bringer of Hope and Change said, mindful of the wholesale outsourcing of the previous administration's economic policies. 15% of the people now without jobs strained in patience to hear these words, as the unemployment rate crept ominously towards the 20's and the talking TV heads bandied about the differences between "Recession" and "Depression".

    "I will address the global warming crisis by encouraging new energy technologies and green solutions!" the bringer of Hope and Change proclaimed. But a filter installed by the previous administration who's position on global warming was that "The jury is still out." sadly translated this into "I will bankrupt the coal industry and raise all of your electricity rates!". Luckily for the country, the man who should have been in charge that the man in the cowboy hat stole from was still around, and his words of warning rang like a dark oracle in the caverns of our places of government.

    Grinning and relaxed, his last half-year a breezy vacation after another, the man in the cowboy hat aquiesced to the Lord of the Treasury's request that he be given all the gold in the land to "fix" the problems the friends of the Admiral's Son created through deregulation. Previously a glass steagall had kept such horrors and cyclical turmoil at bay, but rules don't matter when those in power make them and break them as they please. Strings on the gold wouldn't matter one bit, there was a comfortable farm to be had for the man in the cowboy hat. The banks of the land sent the man in the cowboy hat a thank you card for the TARP he had given them.

    The bringer of Hope and Change had inherited a cavalcade of disasters, wars and crises from the man in the cowboy hat. Not least of these were the folks in sombreros, eager for a better future and willing to cross a river to get to it. With little left in the needle full of fear, the neocons did their best to rattle the cage of every xenophobic gun-toting maniac in the land, championed by a Dobbs to coat the reprehensible behavior in a fine shell of intellectualism. But the hate, couched in patriotism, would ultimately cost them. As anti-immigration fervor reached its height, new political ideologies were forged and an entire bloc of conservative hispanic voters defected, beginning an uncontrollable cascade of losses for the party of the man in the cowboy hat in the southwest of our country.

    The neocons screamed "They come to our country illegally!" having never witnessed the true breadth and depth, canyon-sized holes filled with red tape and a bureaucratic nightmare of Orwellian proportions - entire industries spawned from the nuances of process errors in obtaining legal immigration to the country whose policy at Ellis Island was 'If you can get here, you can live here.' The Statue of Liberty, closed indefinitely due to potential terrorist threat and a perpetual Orange Alert, cries with silent lips "GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE, THE WRETCHED REFUSE OF YOUR TEEMING SHORE. SEND THESE, THE HOMELESS, TEMPEST-TOSSED TO ME."

    She doesn't speak of social security, education, free lunches, free medical care, guaranteed housing and bilingual signs - storied monsters of neocon nightmares. These are impractical falsehoods drummed up to tap those last few drops of Fear into the vein. The threat of a job lost to a Jose or a Rodrigo, illusory at best, caricatures of an economic microcosm at worst. But fear begins to run dry. The autonomic system cannot absorb anymore and the neocons begin to struggle for mere relevance as a political entity. The architects fire off everything left in the gun, anything they have, for the love of god, the ship is sinking!

    With this, we see the return of the Red Scare. Socialism, Communism, and Fascism lobbed interchangably at any given program or policy implemented by the bringer of Hope and Change. Despite existing at ideological poles counter to one another, the Socialism, Communism, Fascism trio resonate with an increasingly smaller contingent of the population - the easily confused white suburban male. It is in him that all hope lies for the last vestiges of the neoconservative movement. A misused symbol of a tea bag, a wholly strange and befuddling emulation of a party in Boston that had markedly nothing to do with the planned protests, and the appointment of a black chairman for no other reason than "Hey, let's try a black guy. It worked for them."

    But to Hannity, and Boss Limbaugh, and Rove, and Cheney, Rummy and Heckuvajob Brownie, Bachman, Coulter and Palin, and of course the man in the cowboy hat, their vision of a homeland rife with corporate corruption - an oligarchy drenched in oil and blood would soon be over. Their plans to annihilate the United States of America may have even worked, as we find ourselves still at the bottom of the darkest economic outlook with disaster looming on all sides. North Korea has the bomb, Pakistan has failed as a nation state, Iraq remains a vibrant vacation hotspot for would-be martyrs, and Iran continues to work on enriching weapons grade uranium. Our nation's infrastructure is in shambles, our financial systems and what's left of our industries are on the brink of cascade failure, tent cities of homeless and unemployed are popping up near urban centers quickly emptying of corporations finding it too difficult to employ workers in a country where health care costs remain prohibitive due to insurance companies and HMO's.

    But if you ask the Admiral's Son, or the man in the cowboy hat, or anyone who is a servant to the Media Lord Murdoch... it would be best for everyone if we didn't look towards the past. Or too much at the present.

    Class dismissed.

    Well, well, well. SlamDunk, I'm so glad you stopped by today. You prove much of what I suspect about the left. Your so smart, so quick witted, and my, how you have such an understanding of things we morons could never hope to grasp. One thing that you've miscalculated in your lesson; oposition to the current administration does not QED translate to support for the previous.

    "It's not that liberals are ignorant, it's just that they know so much that isn't so."
    R.Reagan

    I hope you'll stay for a while, I would hate to think of the posibility of you not being around long enough to realize how wrong-headed you are.
    Nevertheless, please stick around. Some of us are a patient bunch and would enjoy helping you get over both yourself, and your liberal mental disorder.

    And it then came to pass, that a supporter of the great and powerful King-Emperor Barrack I the Great Awesomness did go searching for threads speaking out against his new messiah, and he did proceed to dredge up that thread. He did cry out, "My great leader is no socialist!" He did say that nationalization of banks and of auto companies is not socialalism. He did say that giving peacful gestures to those that want to kill us for their god will make them nice and polite and willing to bow to the great King-Emperor Barrack. And the follower did say that the former Ambassador to the UN was hated by all that wish to sign international treaties that seek to take away our ability to excercise our God-given right to bear arms. And the follower of King-Emperor Barrack did use psuedo-intellectual words to try to confound those that disagree with the great leader and will not partake of his Hope and Change. And he did then say that all who do not follow his great leader are racist and ignorant and unwashed.


    Ok now that that's out of the way....

    "It came to pass in the United States of America that a minority of mildly paranoid right-wing neoconservatives found their ideology suddenly out of favor.

Despite the repeat invokations of September 11th by the Great Darkness that swept the land these past eight years, bit by bit, the people began to wake."

    Ok, now conservatives are paranoid. I guess you've been reading the latest reports coming from DHS. I supposed you think soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are a threat also. And why would they be a threat. They only took an oath to support and defend the Constitutuion of the US and endangered their lives for that oath. I suppose you also think that anyone that believes in states' rights is a paranoid right-winger also. It's amazing to me how many people equate actually reading the Constitution and believing what it says with being a potential right-wing terrorist:rolleyes:

    "But back to our story. At this point, a citizen asked "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" My apologies, students, but no one actually asked that.

Ambassador, the man in the cowboy hat seemed to loathe the very concept of other nations."

    Um, yes, "teacher," but that question WAS asked about Obama all during the campaign. But in masterful political style, he continually side-stepped the answer. And now he is making peacful overtures to Cuba, Al-Queda, North Korea, the Taliban, and Iran. And his great peaceful plan is being rejected by all. Obama says that if we make nice, they'll reciprocate and become our new friends, but I guess they just can't understand, can they? Also, it seems that the only ones that hated Ambassador Bolton were the golbalists in the UN because he continually voted against their treaties and policies. They disliked him because he voted against every international small arms treaty that woukld require us to give up our Second Amendment rights and our national sovereignty to the UN.

    "The bringer of Hope and Change said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes!" Then one solitary voice said "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes!". No one was able to see that the voice had come from a 2-month old infant, counted alongside other children ages 1-18, retirees ages 65 and over, mothers with infants who stay at home, the rising number of unemployed and a multitude of mid-western farmers who pay no taxes but instead receive a healthy subsidy from the government. Of this 40% of Americans, indeed, none pay federal tax. Though they do pay sales tax, excise tax, and other tax. "Statistics are fun!" shouted the same baby, as the man in the cowboy hat's approval rating fell to single digits."

    So, those on unemployment pay no taxes? Well, I've been on unemployment since Feburary after being laid-off in January. After losing 24.5% of my paycheck between federal and state income tax, FICA, and medicare I then began drawing unemployment. And guess what, I'm STILL paying federal and state income tax on my unemployment. And I don't know how you can call it a "healthy subsidy." It's a bit less than 2/3 of what I was making on my last job. But here's the kicker, I actually WORKED to be able to draw this unemployment. Not like the people that sit around on welfare, actually pay no taxes, and then went out on droves to vote for Obama. And don't try to tell me it was not so, I saw this with my own eyes when I went to vote and have heard with my own ears from welfare recipients that said they voted for Obama for the simple fact that they thought he would give them more welfare.

    ""I will address the global warming crisis by encouraging new energy technologies and green solutions!" the bringer of Hope and Change proclaimed. But a filter installed by the previous administration who's position on global warming was that "The jury is still out." sadly translated this into "I will bankrupt the coal industry and raise all of your electricity rates!". Luckily for the country, the man who should have been in charge that the man in the cowboy hat stole from was still around, and his words of warning rang like a dark oracle in the caverns of our places of government."

    So if global warming is a threat, why is now being called climate change? Oh yes, that's right, because most of us were freezing our rears off this past winter. I remember when the whole global warming theory came out on the 80s, a few years alter no one mentioned it because it was proved to be devoid of actual evidence. Well, add anout 15 or so years of scientists being educated in liberal-controlled schools and universities, plus the Great Al Gore making a "documentary" about it, and lo and behold it is now a threat to human civilization! And of course Gore won a Nobel Prize for his slideshow presentation. I guess it's derserved. After all, he did beat out an old woman who saved 2500 children from the Nazis. Yeah, she didn't deserve to be recognized for that:rolleyes: And if all the coal-fired powerplants are shut down, from where will our electricity come? It's been proved that alternative sources, i.e., wind, solar, geothermal, etc. CANNOT meet our needs. Oh wait, we already have a source of cheap and clean electircity...it's called nuclear power. But the enviromentalists think anything nuclear is EVIL. Hmmm, there's a nuclear power plant about an hour or so away from me and guess what, I don't glow in the dark.

As anti-immigration fervor reached its height, new political ideologies were forged and an entire bloc of conservative hispanic voters defected, beginning an uncontrollable cascade of losses for the party of the man in the cowboy hat in the southwest of our country.

    The neocons screamed "They come to our country illegally!" having never witnessed the true breadth and depth, canyon-sized holes filled with red tape and a bureaucratic nightmare of Orwellian proportions - entire industries spawned from the nuances of process errors in obtaining legal immigration to the country whose policy at Ellis Island was 'If you can get here, you can live here.' The Statue of Liberty, closed indefinitely due to potential terrorist threat and a perpetual Orange Alert, cries with silent lips "GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE, THE WRETCHED REFUSE OF YOUR TEEMING SHORE. SEND THESE, THE HOMELESS, TEMPEST-TOSSED TO ME."

    She doesn't speak of social security, education, free lunches, free medical care, guaranteed housing and bilingual signs - storied monsters of neocon nightmares. These are impractical falsehoods drummed up to tap those last few drops of Fear into the vein. The threat of a job lost to a Jose or a Rodrigo, illusory at best, caricatures of an economic microcosm at worst. But fear begins to run dry. The autonomic system cannot absorb anymore and the neocons begin to struggle for mere relevance as a political entity. The architects fire off everything left in the gun, anything they have, for the love of god, the ship is sinking!"

    Ah, but there is a difference, the immigrants of old came here legally. They took the time and effort to learn our language and then to contribute to the nation. It's the truth when I say that in this area, at least 80% of Hispanics are illegal immagrants from Mexico. That is a statistic from the government of North Carolina. I once worked for a company that hired three Hispanics to every one American. And guess what, those Hispanics were, for the most part, illegal. In fact, I heard some of them admit to it. And at one time they thought ICE was going to pay the place a visit. One ENTIRE shift, all Hispanic, quit on the spot when they heard that. The ones that did not quit were rushing to get rid of their ID, so I'm guessing they all had fake ID. And before you try to say I have a problem with immigrants, I don't. A lot of immigrants in this area are also from Asia, Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The vast majority of them are hard working people that like this country and want to stay here legally and become citizens. I have no problem that and welcome them with open arms. And by the way, I'm primarily Italian and German (my last name in Italian), two of the biggest immigrant groups in US history. One of my German ancestors fought against the British during the Revolution, so you see I have a positive outlook on legal immigration. But the illegals come here illegally (that means they break our laws by entering the US illegally), they break our laws by getting fake ID, many of them break our laws by commiting crimes, the most popular of which seem to be DUI and NOL. And instead of contributing to our economy, they send massive amounts of money to foreign contries.

    ""Isn't that Marxist?" Fox News reporter and wife of GOP Media News Consultant inquired to the man who rode the Amtrak to work. Now students, who among you can define a redistribution of wealth? Is this necessarily a bad thing? For extra credit, a five paragraph essay on how every single tax system since the dawn of time has been a "redistribution of wealth". For double points, work in the following quote by Teddy Roosevelt - "The man of great wealth owes a particular obligation to the state, because he derives special advantages from the mere existence of government."

    With this, we see the return of the Red Scare. Socialism, Communism, and Fascism lobbed interchangably at any given program or policy implemented by the bringer of Hope and Change. Despite existing at ideological poles counter to one another, the Socialism, Communism, Fascism trio resonate with an increasingly smaller contingent of the population - the easily confused white suburban male. It is in him that all hope lies for the last vestiges of the neoconservative movement. A misused symbol of a tea bag, a wholly strange and befuddling emulation of a party in Boston that had markedly nothing to do with the planned protests, and the appointment of a black chairman for no other reason than "Hey, let's try a black guy. It worked for them."

    But to Hannity, and Boss Limbaugh, and Rove, and Cheney, Rummy and Heckuvajob Brownie, Bachman, Coulter and Palin, and of course the man in the cowboy hat, their vision of a homeland rife with corporate corruption - an oligarchy drenched in oil and blood would soon be over. Their plans to annihilate the United States of America may have even worked, as we find ourselves still at the bottom of the darkest economic outlook with disaster looming on all sides. North Korea has the bomb, Pakistan has failed as a nation state, Iraq remains a vibrant vacation hotspot for would-be martyrs, and Iran continues to work on enriching weapons grade uranium. Our nation's infrastructure is in shambles, our financial systems and what's left of our industries are on the brink of cascade failure, tent cities of homeless and unemployed are popping up near urban centers quickly emptying of corporations finding it too difficult to employ workers in a country where health care costs remain prohibitive due to insurance companies and HMO's."

    Redistribution of wealth is the Marxist term for taking from all citizens and having the government give it equally to all citizens. It is one of the major tenant of Communism. Socialism is Diet Communism. Universal healthcare is part of it. Expanding welfare programs to those who just don't feel like working is another part. Raising the tax rate to pay for all the welfare is another part. Obama wants to have universal healthcare based on the British model. Under that model, my mother would not be able to get any help. She's diabetic with carpal tunnel and PAD in her left leg and cannot work because of it. Since she can't work right now, the gov't would withhold medical care because she won't be able to contribute. Also, most countries with socialised medicine cut people off from all medical care once they get past a certain age. Yeah, that's fair. Ok, let's look back through history and see how well that has worked out. The USSR, gone. Cuba, still Communist, but dirt poor. Vietnam, still Communist, but not quite so dirt poor because US does business with them. China, still Communist but fairly affulent because the US does a LOT of business with them. Hmmm, I think I see a pattern. A Communist country CAN survive and even prosper, but only if the US has trade with them:eek: North Korea does has the bomb. Iran is also working on the bomb. They've been doing that for years. Let us not forget that a lot of this has been going on since Clinton was in office, or even before. The Somali pirates are a direct result of Clinton's failure in 93. 9/11, Al Queda was emboldened by Clinton's lack of response to terrorist attacks. Or how about the Iranians attacking Kurdish settlements inside Iraq recently. Say what you will about Bush, but the Iranians didn't try that while he was in office. They sense weakness in Obama and think they can take advantage of it. Kim Jong Il, he was secretly developing nukes, when found out he was somewhat willing to negotiate (not that I believed his sincerity for a second), but he also sees weakness in Obama and now has openly began working on nukes again.
    So white males are easily confused? Well, I"m a white male and I don't think I'm easily confused. I guess by "easily confused" you mean "unwilling to accept as gospel everything Obama says and follow him blindly."

    Now, I have to say that I was not a fan of Bush. Patriot Act, need I say more? However, Bush did take actions that did help prevent further attacks. And he did have the jimmies to say what he felt and to stick by it. You ask Obama the same question five times and you get five different answers.

    I notice that you seem to be using a lot of name calling in your post. Typical liberal tactic. Resort to psuedo-intellectual "facts," and when that doesn't work, go to name calling. I bet you spent time searching the internet for message boards containing threads that disagree with Obama and decide to try to convert the unbelievers. That is your right. But realize that it is also our right to disagree with Obama and his policies.
