"standing athwart history yelling stop."
That's brilliant.
Its discomforting because I'm as guilty of this as Carol et. al. are guilty of the above:
"The third theory investigated in this study is what Kahan calls the expressive rationality thesis. In this case, beliefs about issues like the riskiness of climate change or nuclear power constitute part of what it means for people to belong to specific groups. Shared beliefs form part of their identities. People assess new information so that their conclusions signal their trustworthiness and loyalty to social groups with which they identify and to which they wish to be connected. The upshot is that people go along in order to get along with members of the social groups that they believe will benefit them."
I'm guilty of finding a libertarian rationale against just about anything the right holds dear.

IE: Political SUCKISM pandering and palm greasing.(rather than INTEGRITY, Morality, DECENCY, ethics and REAL humanity)

That's the problem with handing the government a blunt instrument like the PATRIOT Act. You're assuming that the government will always get it right and only employ it against BAD people. That's an awful lot of faith to put in a government that has regularly disregarded its citizens' guaranteed rights.
No, absolutely not--any one that would think that is inept and lacking in the reality realms of thought as well.

Personally, I've never witnessed such direct breaches of the Constitution, as seen in some of antics of the past four years.

Galt is making some very good arguments but you still can't manage to get it. You're welcome to preach PREVENTION all you want, its when you want the government to enforce your "moral" convictions that you run afoul of small government types.
I am not of the partay preaching for handouts for personal responsibility!!!!

My opinion is-pro-CHOICE---but help PAY for your CHOICES AND mistakes YOURSELVES, greedy, givverment dependent, lazy ass babymamma slackerTICS.

Day 3 of operation Homer Betrayed.

The suspect list has been narrowed down to 2.

One of them shared private information with a 3rd party aka 'The Enemy'.

Once the suspect list is narrowed down to 1 look out.

Oh and good morning jackwagons.

I agree with you. The Republican party problem is that, just as the Democrat party, there are too many extremists with too much power in their respective parties.
I have no problem with individuals pursuing whatever endeavors that they like as long as it does not interfere with the freedoms of others or look to others to fund these endeavors. However it seems more and more frequent that we as taxpayers are being requested to fund such things.
AMEN!!!

Actually stupid, the Making Work Pay Tax Credit was a major part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and did put extra money into workers pockets.
Do you honestly think that your "creative" spelling makes you look clever? It doesn't it makes you look like your intellectual development stalled at fourteen years old.
And that flipping miniscule, almost myopic reduction is part of what you idiots want to repeal no doubt.

So are you saying you, too, like RealDave, believe Obama and the health care monstrosity won't cost the taxpayers one thin dime?
Because that's the journey to which I was referring. Of course, RealDave believes it's already paid for.
Please tell me you've gone further than that.
Look Carol,

The ACA is paid for through a series of taxes & savings.

Some tax payers will pay some of these taxes & some will not be affected. For example, a tax was added to investment income over a certain threshold.

The point I am making is that this bill does not add to the debt.

Part D was passed by Republicans with about 80% of it adding to the deficit.

Tax payers pay for everything the government does. So running in circles screaming how the ACA is costing taxpayers money is extremely stupid. The added costs due to the ACA are funded.

The problem is you say 1 has nothing to do with the other which it shouldn't, but you right wingers tend to call Obama muslim. & if he was then what? Freedom of religion yet ya'll panic in the wake of something you don't understand. I could care less if he was muslim. He's proven hew is here to do the will of the people. & don't sit here & act like you & your brethren don't try to link President Obama & the end time prophecies. Ya'll dont call him the antichrist & everything. Boy Messiah, what more proof do I need? & again show me some proof & not right wing journalism that proves that obamacare is bad for the middle & lower classes!

You haven't seen me label him anything...because voting for a POTUS is NOT voting for a preacher (unlike SOME of the freakish dolts that cannot fathom that here in the US, people CAN and DO seperate their religious affiliations from their work related ones)

He's just another Hienz 57 stater, who apparently does not see the rational or logic in showing educational records for SOME reason or another (ESPECIALLY if anyone started college at 16) in my book.

Now, when want to switch gears from the LAMEbrainless modes of just mere phat crayon kindergarten level personal assaults on people, to discussing on higher thinking levels, ISSUES, such as the economy, FOREIGN POLICY and the likes, do feel free to chime in.
