Ad hominen would be without merit. Your stupidity deserves worse.
Calling that smut peddler a crusader for anything except his own self aggrandizement puts you in league with little children who believe in Santa Claus.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.07.2007 @ 19:02
Are you taking remedial reading courses at Washington U?
"The 20-plus new leads, Flynt said, come from the newspaper ad and not Palfrey. The Hustler publisher, arrested and jailed multiple times during his decades-long career, vowed to provide clear proof and only out lawmakers whom he perceives to be hypocrites..."
Are you naive or just stupid? Do you actually believe that Flynt will consider any Democrats caught up in this scandal "hypocrites" and therefore not publish their names?
Go back to sleep now. Don't you have a test or something tomorrow?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.07.2007 @ 18:26
Perhaps I didn't highlight the fact enough that every president has politicized government to some extent. But my point is clear - never before in history have so many functions of government been hijacked by politics.
And perhaps YOU should read the article a little more closely. If you had, it would have been clear.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.07.2007 @ 07:55
Assad is Saddam lite. His father slaughtered 10,000 Shias in a couple of towns to the north of Damascus in 1988 while Bashar has been absolutely ruthless against domestic opponents. I have no doubt that he will have no qualms killing as many Lebanese as necessary to maintain control.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.07.2007 @ 11:06
This is what I said back in April:
And lest anyone misunderstand me (or, for those of you who simply didnâ€™t bother to read what I wrote) I am not advocating anything more than a token withdrawal of American troops. And that would be as a consequence of cutting a deal with Democrats in Congress who almost certainly would insist on some kind of cutback of troops if they were to sign on to a redefined mission of fighting al-Qaeda, protecting the Iraqi borders (including the Iran-Iraq border), and preventing a humanitarian catastrophe. Only the significant presence of US troops will prevent the massacre of Sunnis by Shias hell bent on revenge as well as those who wish to make Iraq â€œSunni free.â€ That same presence would probably also prevent a general Middle East war as well.
Where the f**k do you see "surrender" in there?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.07.2007 @ 03:41
This is nuts. The President proposes yesterday EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN PROPOSING FOR SIX MONTHS!
Is he a surrender monkey too?
"[T]he president has mapped out a best-case scenario for Iraq on Jan. 20, 2009, that would still see considerable numbers of U.S. troops on the ground, but in a different role. If events work out as Bush hopes, aides said, U.S. forces by then will have sharply reduced their mission, pulling out of sectarian combat and focusing instead on fighting al-Qaeda, guarding Iraqâ€™s borders and supporting Iraqi troops. Instead of operating under a U.N. mandate, the United States would negotiate an agreement with the Iraqi government for a smaller, long-term presence."
The problem is for people like you is that anyone who deviates one iota from what you consider the correct path in Iraq is a traitor. Well, the goddamn President of the United States is advocating a course of action above that I have been advocating for 6 months!
What does that make you? A traitor to the President?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.07.2007 @ 03:35
You people really don't do nuance very well, do you.
Look - and for the last fricking time. Here is the sum total of "a lot more scientists who say it is happening than who suggest a it isnâ€™t" means:
"It" = the planet is getting warmer and an unknown percentage of that is because of human industrial activity.
That's it. Anybody who says that there is agreement or consensus or rock solid dead certainty about anything else as it relates to global warming is talking through their ass. CO2 levels now, CO2 levels 100 years from now, what the temp will be 100 years from now, or 50 years, or 10 years, or anything else - NOBODY KNOWS!
Now, my purpose in making fun of SOME people who "believe" in global warming as if it were some kind of religion and that if you don't "believe" in every dire prediction and gloom and doom scenario that you are a climate Nazi or worse, is simple; there are many who wish to use global warming to stick it to the United States and the west as well as impose their own belief system regarding "sustainable life" on the rest of us.
Al Gore is a tool of these forces. He's too dumb to control them and perhaps he's dimly aware of their dual agendas. But until science can demonstrate that 1) we can actually do something about global warming or 2) that there is a genuine threat to our civilization, I will forgo the pleasure of giving up approximately 12 trillion dollars in economic activity over the next 25 years in order to achieve the 90% reduction in emissions called for at Live Earth (See pledge above). If we are going to go back to the turn of the 20th century, we need a helluva lot more compelling evidence - not to mention the cooperation of China and India who are both bigger polluters than the US - before we impoverish the American people.
But as you can see from the comments above, if you don't buy in to the entire program, you're a goober chewing yahoo. At least that kind of ignorance is relatively harmless. THe kind of ignorance on display above from the hysterics is a lot more dangerous.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.07.2007 @ 13:41
Global warming is not a right/left issue. It is a matter of science.
But you have proven that the science doesn't matter as long as you can bash Republicans with the issue. That makes you as dangerously ignorant as anyone I can imagine on the right - perhaps more so.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.07.2007 @ 19:00
And by the way, Jay - I laugh harder every time I read this. Your lack of a sense of humor is not surprising one bit. I find the left generally to be the most humorless bunch of self absorbed nincompoops on the planet.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.07.2007 @ 16:26
Forget it, Todd. Don't you know that JayK is our moral superior? That we should be down on our knees THANKING GOD (or Gaia) that people like he exist to protect the planet from stupid, mouthbreathing, inbred yahoos like you and me?
Don't stop him when he's on a self-righteous roll. He refuses to read anything else on this site that would contradict his demonization of my views. You see, that would destroy his nice, neat little narrative with him the enviro-hero and you and I as eco-Hitlers.
Don't respond to him anymore. Let him troll on...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.07.2007 @ 16:24
