What accountability do you apply to the Democrat-controlled Congress for their votes to fund the Iraq war?
And what about Obama's senatorial votes in favor of Bush administration initiatives?
He didn't so much "inherit" this economy, as he and/or his Dem party members voted for it.Comment Posted By Don C. On 30.04.2009 @ 07:30
The decisive political power granted by the middle class/moderates will only be persuaded by their real world lower standards of living due to Statists' over-expanding government tyranny.
That is when Obama's "Hope" mirage will wither in their minds.
The actual pain of that real world experience will, over a period of time (I believe a relatively short period), swing the political pendulum regardless the current "purity" of "true" conservatives.
But, boy is it gonna cost them (and America) big time in the interim.Comment Posted By Don C. On 30.04.2009 @ 03:58

Please don't run home mad to mommy on Olympus' summit with your little 'sanity ball'. ;)
You'll thimk twice before you again attempt the idiotic introjection of the chicken hawk meme, one would *hope*.
Later alligator... thanks for playing.Comment Posted By Don C. On 26.04.2009 @ 04:16
You sir have, as a chicken dove, injected the chicken hawk meme into this thread. Now you must defend it, or increase your foolishness.
How can you rationally assert, with any semblance of intellectual virtue or credibility, that your own non-military opinions merit greater authority on this issue than disagreeable non-military opinions?
You can't. And, as a Modern Liberal moral relativist, you likewise cannot escape the dilemma of your self-congratulatory intolerance for varying viewpoints to your own.
M.R.: "Are John McCain, the FBI and the US Army all examples of wimpy liberals? Because they all agree with me on this issue."
With that hypocritical bombast, you have clumsily fallen to prostrating yourself before government officials' power and abandoned all pretense of objectivity.
Why do Modern Liberals demonize people that speak truth to such "power"?
Because their "intellects" seek not truth but, rather, abandon it in their pursuit of political ends.Comment Posted By Don C. On 25.04.2009 @ 22:59
Why did you dodge military service?
Why are you morally outraged by simulated drowning interrogation techniques upon terrorists that produced information that saved innocent American lives, but not morally outraged against immoral abortion techniques that kill innocent babies?Comment Posted By Don C. On 25.04.2009 @ 21:55
michael reynolds Said:
"For torture: draft dodger Dick Cheney and loudmouths like you. Yeah, it’s all about manliness."
In Other Words: "Hypocrisy! (Stifle!)" he cried...
michael reynolds hasn't served in the military, yet he hypocritically ridicules and therefore dismisses men on the basis of their having not served, while he pretends to have the last master-minded word on military matters from his self-satisfied Olympian heights.
Just another ridiculous illustration of the irrational Modern Liberal (fascist) mind on full display.Comment Posted By Don C. On 25.04.2009 @ 20:51
M.R.: "There is nothing 'conservative' about throwing out our own history, Judeo-Christian morality and the law."
That judgment against enhanced interrogation techniques rests on historical immorality.
Therefore, in order for you to remain morally consistent, mustn't you also argue that abortion threw out our own history, Judeo-Christian morality and the law?
Are you anti-abortion?
If not, then your lack of moral compass disqualifies you from rendering intellectually virtuous judgement on the issue of water-boarding, etc.
M.R.: "Why is it torture when our enemies do it to our POWs and not torture when we do it?"
Simulated drowning, while very unpleasant, is not torture. And it has saved innocent American lives.
The obverse (i.e., enemy torture inflicted upon our good guys is physically excruciating, bloody, mutilating and ultimately deadly. And its purpose is not to save innocent lives) cannot be shown true.
M.R.: "Obama is against prosecution."
How can Obama not be against prosecution, while at the same time being *for* the tortuous/immoral practice of infanticide/"partial-birth abortion"?Comment Posted By Don C. On 25.04.2009 @ 16:17
Rick M. "... liberals who want to throw the book at everyone but the cook at Guantanamo are perfectly willing to rip this country apart in search of vengance."
"Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other...
