How does one know if someone is a 'true conservative' or not?Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 13.04.2009 @ 10:05
You cannot tout your belief in a “big tent” GOP and then put up a sign that says “Anyone who doesn’t think as I do is a moron.”
Lucky for you it's ok to put up that sign if you don't believe in a "big tent" GOP.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 9.04.2009 @ 14:35
Beck can say that he loves Muslims all he wants and it won’t change the fact that asking that question brands him as a bigoted kook. We gave up on religious tests at the same time we ratified the Constitution. Conservatives who don’t see a problem with the way Beck “feels” about asking that question - admitting his own prejudice and ignorance - I say for shame. It is no different than asking John F. Kennedy if he could be a “loyal American” and a Catholic at the same time, referring to a Catholic’s supposed allegiance to the Vatican. It is a monumental insult and, at bottom, anti-American. Ellison himself may be something of a crackpot but to place him on the same plane as Bin Laden is irrational.
Absolutely awesome, Rick.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 8.04.2009 @ 10:57
Europe, mostly Germany and France, didn’t want to engage Iraq BECAUSE THEY WERE PROFITING OFF THE HUSSEIN REGIME.
This is also true for the United States when Iraq was gassing it's own people. We looked the other way, and profited handsomely.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 7.04.2009 @ 10:53
You sound like half of a horribly dysfunctional relationship. Whining and moaning about how you don't need counseling, right before you admit that counseling actually helps.
It'll be great when/if both halves finally realize that you need to overcome original programming and actually be constructive for a change.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 7.04.2009 @ 08:02
The problem is government needs to be fundamentally restructured.
What are your ideas for this fundamental restructuring?Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 25.03.2009 @ 16:18
It’s the only weapon he has used since he took office to get what he wants. He successfully frightened Congress into passing his stim bill (which no one read). He has used the specter of economic collapse to bail out his friends in the UAW. And he has deliberately fostered the notion that everyone agrees with him that all of these steps are necessary to “save” the economy. Opposition to his policies are politically motivated and insincere with the GOP hoping for catastrophe.
I agree. It's horrible that politicians would use fear to further their agenda. Agendas that obviously have more to do with power grabs and cronyism than the betterment of our great nation.
By then, all the fear mongering in the world by the president will not hide the damage he has done to the economy or the violence he has done to the free market.
This piece has made me so afraid of this reckless President and his fear based policies that I'll be voting Republican in 2010. Obama's fear mongering seems completely out of control, and that really scares me.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 25.03.2009 @ 09:53
The handwriting was all over the wall and idiots either forgot how to read or couldn’t in the first place.
What are you talking about? Who's handwriting? When was it written? Are you saying that the people who voted for Obama are illiterate idiots who couldn't see the benefits keeping Republicans in power? Please explain.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 24.03.2009 @ 18:03
I dunno Nessus, I just have a hard time blaming Mexicans seeking a better life for the ineptitude and failings government programs in my country.
I understand your situation though. It gives you something to rail against. It makes you feel like you're part of a select collective, and that inclusion is important for your self esteem and overall feeling of security. I get that.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 23.03.2009 @ 16:10
Consider: We can’t even agree to all speak one, common language, not even in public schools for fear of upsetting the “newcomers” from south of the border, who are to a very large extent, identity stealing, social security fraud commiting illegal aliens. We are afraid to enforce our own laws for fear of being called “bigot”, “racist”, etc.
What you call identity stealing, social security fraud committing illegal aliens, I call people taking their lives into their own hands and doing everything they can to find and build a better life for themselves and their families. When you get right down to it, that's the epitome of what it means to be American.
You know, as opposed to bitching and moaning about a common language or lost jobs, these people are out there busting their asses to improve their lives. Again, sounds pretty American to me.
Don't worry though, your irrational fear of Mexicans is built into your DNA. And if it wasn't Mexicans you were terrified of, you'd find something else to project your fear onto. The only people I know who are afraid of being called "bigot" or "racist" are bigots and racists.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 23.03.2009 @ 13:24
