Both sides? You're going to have to explain that little assertion, because there is exactly one side that uses abortion as a wedge issue, and it isn't the pro-choice crowd. Additionally, this does say something about the rampant irresponsibility of the conservative movement and its media arm specifically, and it would be foolish for liberals to not make those points. Demonizing liberals with over-the-top rhetoric is the lifeblood of the Republican party, and it isn't going to be surprising to find out that it contributed in this case to a man's death. Recently we found out that the guy that shot up a separate church did it because of Bernard Goldberg's book. A couple of months ago someone lured police officers to their house to kill them because he became convinced by *someone* that Obama was going to take his guns away. Tiller's death is no isolated incident. This has been going on for some time, and it's likely to continue.
But you'd rather we not point fingers? Well, it wasn't that long ago that the conservative movement repeatedly invoked Bill Ayers during a Presidential election because it "said something" about Barack Obama. Turnabout is still fair play, isn't it?Comment Posted By FLIPPYDIPPITY On 1.06.2009 @ 08:17
This is not a conspiracy theory. It is hardball politics played to the hilt - if it had been true.
That doesn't make any sense. You're telling me what it's not, then you're telling me what it is, while acknowledging that what you're telling me it is, isn't.
It was a conspiracy theory, okay?Comment Posted By FLIPPYDIPPITY On 1.06.2009 @ 08:57
Anyone who says this was not an issue worth looking into is politically naive and probably a partisan hack to boot. Of course the idea of politically motivated dealer closings was a possibility - especially with the bunch of arrogant cutthroats Obama has assembled in the auto task force. It would have been irresponsible not to check into this possibility. Who else was going to do it? The media? Only after blogs had been flogging the story for 3 days.
No, no, no. This never made sense, like so much else that gets internet Republicans all riled up. As for as conspiracy theories go, this is about as nonsensical and unimaginative as it gets. Oooo, Obama's pinning down the Republican Chrysler dealers! The liberal master plan is coming along quite nicely now that we've deprived the Republican party of a few thousand dollars worth of campaign contributions! What's next? Maybe Obama will personally oversee the persecution of Republican McDonald's franchisees?
This is not a conspiracy theory. It is hardball politics played to the hilt - if it had been true. And taking out big GOP donors in key areas - millions of dollars worth of donations - is very imaginable - except to partisan idiots from the other side who think Obama craps marigolds and doesn't need to wipe.

An atheist, Roddenberry was a near fanatic about keeping God out of his creations. But the philosophy Picard talks about in First Contact has a spirituality that cannot be ignored. He speaks of a world where there is no hunger, no poverty, no money, and that the desire for material goods has been replaced by a drive to improve oneself. This sounds almost monkish in its implications for a society.
You religious types act as if you alone can define life and its purpose. But life can have purpose without spirituality.
What religious type? Anyone who reads this site can tell you I'm an atheist.
How ridiculous do you feel now?

You guys are a hoot; constantly railing against Hollywood and how out-of-touch they are, but you love it just as much as anybody and you know it.Comment Posted By FLIPPYDIPPITY On 31.03.2009 @ 17:00
