Gayle, thank you for reminding just how prophetic The Onion can actually be.
The Onion headline for January 17, 2001:
"Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'"
It's actually a little creepy to read the entire thing, even though you won't. http://www.theonion.com/content/node/28784Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 8.10.2009 @ 14:09
I vote, just another personality breaking out!Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 7.10.2009 @ 23:10
If you can’t tell the difference between “the government” and an “insurance company” then there is no use trying to discuss anything rationally with any of you.
Of course there is a literal difference. Of course you can tell where the divide is.
Perhaps you haven't had the joy of dealing with insurance corporations on the same level that some of us have. You try fighting for a procedure for you child that your insurance corporation says is unnecessary, but your doctor says is. You try dealing with that while your kid is literally laying in a hospital bed and then tell us where the difference would lie.
Eventually you reach the point where you say, how could a government system possibly be worse than this?Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 7.10.2009 @ 09:37
I am not interested in purging the popularizers. I am interested in reducing their influence - as I am interested in reducing the influence on policy in the GOP by the religious right - and the perception that their methods and views reflect a majority of those of us on the right.
With every bit of sincerity I can muster, I wish you the very best of luck.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 5.10.2009 @ 12:39
A president who knows what he’s doing.
This stems from the US ending the European missle defense project. Either that, or Obama's a giant liberal pussy who rolled over when Putin glanced in his direction.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 25.09.2009 @ 11:52
Chin up Rick, we'll get through this together. All you have to do is accept that you have a good blog, you are a good writer, and that your ideas foster many discussions far and away from the page on which they written.
Suggesting that you use chemicals to help ignore the Chuck Tucson's of the world was just me projecting. Because, if I had to deal with me, I'd sure as hell need a hit from time to time.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 25.09.2009 @ 09:26
It was an offhanded compliment based on your FIVE YEARS BLOGGING essay, and the amount of whatnot you deal with due to your opinionated blogging.
Hellofa reaction though.
Hellofa compliment. And your explanation is not believable in the slightest - especially given the comment you left on that same essay about my 5 years blogging.
Go try and snow someone else. I ain't buying.

They’re all douchebags, and the entire Congress should be turned over.
Which begs the age old questions:
1. Are they douchebags before they get into office?
2. If not, what about political office promotes douchebaggery?
3. Is douchebaggery contagious?
4. How much weed does Rick smoke on a daily basis, just to get by?
Tough questions indeed.
The gratuitous slap at me is totally uncalled for and begs the question; what kind of idiot visits the blog of a stoner?
If you are not going to respond intelligently, go away. I find most of your responses boring and puerile. You have nothing original to offer - just bad snark. Good snark I can put up with, but stupid snark isn't worth it.
If you want to comment, leave out the personal insults. That is my prerogative alone. If you don't want to play by the rules, don't comment. And if you comment anyway, I will ban you.

I work in D.C. and I have to tell you things are just screwed up beyond belief around here. Never ever should anyone let Dems attempt to run anything!
It might have slipped by you, but the Dems had about an eight year hiatus from running much of anything recently. Did you mean Republicans?Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 24.09.2009 @ 13:24
I guess the point I’m trying to make is we are not out of the woods - not by a long shot.
Judging by all the rapidly emptying strip mall stores out in suburbia, you're absolutely right.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 24.09.2009 @ 10:36
