That's all well and good but you've managed to overlook the fact that I don't cheer lead for the Dems, Libs, or Progressives. I'm merely pointing out the idiocy coming from the right. In case you haven't noticed they've become ridiculous on every issue.
Tell me something the right is proposing that you go along with.
The left may fail at times because of the vast differences in opinions and execution but the right is exactly what you accuse me of:...not to be taken seriously, they don't think ... a corrupt political party thinks for them; read tea party, etc.
And what have I said, brought, underscored that you take issue with, specifically?'Cause I notice your pretty good generalizing your attack. Get specific.
Attack? There is no attack. Here is the specifics of what has happened:

I made a joke about you being half right about Obama's great work as president because rich people are still doing well, while his base of poor people are doing worse. It wasn't the greatest joke ever told, but it was amusing to some, I'm sure. What it WASN'T was an "attack." It was a joke based on some truths.

Based on this crack, admittedly at the expense of your false idol, you decided definitively (in your mind), that I was a "deficit hawk," and that you find it funny that I "believe spending by government is bad but good when it's private."

Then you told me to "Call me when you've read up on economics. For yourself, not the drivel squeezed out by Fox and the tea party."

So far... based on a joke about unemployment, gas prices, and the Dow... you have decided that you know a lot about my beliefs, and that my intellectual pursuits in economics have been limited to Fox News and the Tea Party literature.

Then you whispered, "psst... there's no such thing as trickle down economics."

Again... you pull another idea that you don't like out of thin air and decide that I am a champion of it... simply because I clearly am not a worshiper of Obama. I did not express anything about trickle down, yay or nay.

Then I called you out on it by saying that my post sent you into an anti-GOP rage, causing you to associate me with GOP ideas that you didn't like even though I didn't address them.

Then you HILARIOUSLY responded with yet, another anti-GOP rage!

You said that the GOP, "don't have ANY ideas except:

- Lower taxes for the rich
- Lower taxes on businesses (oil co's particularly)
- Raise taxes on middle income earners
- Cut Social Security and Medicare
- Cut benefits to the neediest

In other words serve their wealthy "owners". Those don't really qualify as "economic ideas", you know? Oh, I forgot, you do know 'cause you've got a "degree in Economics". Rrrright."
***
I hope the irony isn't lost on you that this all started by my joke about how the rich are doing the best under Obama!

(Based on this post, joe... what are my views on the rain forest?)

Hey joe, since you fancy yourself as an economist, here's some light reading about what the left AND the right are planning for our financial future.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-confiscation...

Those of you that call yourselves "liberal," but are nothing more than totalitarians, can learn a lot about the shift toward a European/Canadian model that you are fighting to erode our sovereignty to adopt by reading this.

Then read Joseph Plummer's "Dishonest Money." Then read G. Edward Griffin's "The Creature From Jekyll Island."

It will take about 24 total hours of reading... but you'll learn how our monetary system really works. You'll also learn how the left and the right are working to accomplish the same goals, just packaging the message differently.

(sorry joe, you'll realize that those assholes running the GOP are working toward the SAME goals as your idols on the left)

You'll be glad that you've been woken up... but mad as hell about what is really happening.

The only rebuttal the left can come up with for this reality is that it is the fault of the republican led "sequestration" cuts. The only problem with that is it is a lie. "Sequestration" cuts have not even hit the economy yet, they were only cuts to scheduled increases, so they are not cuts at all, but smaller increases in spending, and sequestration was actually the administrations concept and plan.
This president is an abject failure and the democrats continue to spin lies about it with the cooperation of most of the news media. Less then 1% of Americans polled give a rats ass about marrying homosexuals and calling it something it is not, but to follow the main stream press and television news, its the most important event since the victory over British Empire to win our freedom.

Apparently single motherhood is taking its toll on Michelle, since most single mothers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars vacationing in the Bahamas and take their kids skiing in Colorado. Poor Michelle. Maybe if she cut those horrid bangs she could see what an ass her husband is.

You white crackers can't stand the fact that Brother Obama was REELECTED despite all the shenanigans those Repukelicans tried. Just got done watching white cracker Clint Eastwood's speech at the Repukelican convention. I laugh more every time I watch it.

It's fun to watch the Repukelicans continually dismiss the minority voters thinking the Jim Crow brothers and sisters will stay in line with their white masters. Have a newsflash for you white crackers. Those days are gone.

You're kidding, right. Your making an equivalency of what Al Sharpton has said and?:

"Obummer is a spook that never had a job done right just like most spooks"

Really? This isn't about sides or parties. This is about how we should all call out this garbage wherever it comes from.

Or was this guy's comment something you think adds to the discussion?

not totally; apparently, there's a reason why he loves going on so many "campaign stops". He's putting the old 'one-eye to tuna-town' with California AG, Kamala Harris. Now that Michelle has a caboose that rivals with Oprah, Obama's "white" blood is taking the full effect here.

there's an answer for that; after all, she admitted on TV that she is a single mom. I think The Obama is pulling a "Bill Clinton" with the California AG.

Since you're all so non-partisan about calling out extremist ideological idiocy, how about letting us know where you come down on this lib prog collectivist/statist view:

"MSNBC Host: Your Kids Belong to the Collective"

"... college professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry says your children are not yours – they are owned by the community."

"“We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” says the professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. Kids belong to whole communities, she insists, and once we realize this we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children."

So, you've explained yourself quite "nicely". I pointed out an incredibly foul racist statement and you're good with that.

Yeah, she's right.

And you should pay better attention to who you use to quote from. Alec Jones (like most far-right slugs) is notorious for re-writing and mis-quoting what people say.

we’ll make “better investments”.

not

we’ll make “better investments” in government indoctrination of children."

More drivel from the Good 'Ole Goobers (GOP).

I'm not "good" with racism from the left or the right.

In the posts above, there is a foul racist statement from a left wing moron and another foul racist statement from a right wing moron.

You didn't comment on the lefty racism, but felt the need to be "offended" by the same nonsense from the right wing dolt.

If you think I'm a "right wing low-life," you obviously haven't understood anything I've written. The main theme of my posts is that the republican and democrat parties are both bought and paid for by the same global bankers and international special interests.

Explain to me how exposing the criminality of both parties is right wing please.

Do you actually think that anybody on this thread thinks you are merely pointing out that "republican and democrat parties are both bought and paid for..."? You're kidding, right?

I know, why not tell us who you think speaks for your ideas in the political realm.
