Julian Assange needs to be pumped full of lead and then used as a garbage scow anchor regardless of Ecuador.
Exactly the response I'd expect from a big-government authoritarian meanwhile ...

What's the graffiti saying right now?

Agree we need to cut all of the funding in defense for Nations you stated. Programs?

-The Solyndra Failure a'ringin' a bell?
*The closed facilities of Solyndra LLC, the solar-panel manufacturer that went bankrupt after receiving a $535 million federal government funding.

-Research Projects leading no where or to no avail, such as
"How to Lower Carbon Emissions from Cows" !... Just for starters. So many to name. And most if not all have already been.

But cutting Defense for Our Military would not be my first choice.
Nor should it be THIS Administrations.

Name these "frivolous programs" that need to be cut before we stop funding the defense of places like Germany, Japan, S. Korea, Israel, and Taiwan. I can truly understand why you'd rather send a soldier to Seoul than buy textbooks or feed a hungry child but I want to hear it from you.

Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here is the only album (not a Best of ...) I can think of that every song on it gets regular airplay.

Anybody think of any other?

Come to think of it, this day and age demands such a setup. Those platforms are open invitations to wackos, jealous wives and copycat killers.
On Jan 1, New Yorkers should pass around thousands of Michael Bloomberg Dummies and perform a city-wide Flash Mob event. On the mark, all of those Michael Bloomberg Dummies should be pushed from subway platforms. They should be filled with Sidewalk Sausage, too, Pinata-Style.
... and then they could fire the ovens!

That's $535 million out of a $1.3 trillion deficit, you're gonna have to do a LOT better than than.

Meanwhile do you realize how rich Germany, Taiwan, Japan, and S. Korea are? Why are we paying for their defense?

I don't HAVE to do anything.

If you don't think a wasted $535M could have been put to better use, spent wisely, then HOT-DAMN you're dumb!

Or Blind, Sheeple!

So much for your Libertarian schtick.

Your last 2 sentences ... What happened? Your alpha brain waves get scattered and distracted by the cross fire ??

I wonder if it would be possible to fashion correlations between a person's aversions to specific foods, events, objects, etc. and some personality trait - genius or failure.

For example, Liberals are quite averse to allowing economic freedom to the masses and they simultaneously suffer from bouts of digestive repression(being full of shit) and diarrhea of the mouth.

lol! I notice cons keep trying to equate freedom with capitalism.

But no matter how many times I ask, none of them can show me what they're talking about in the Constitution.

I wonder why?

Yes, just as the MAJORITY of American voters did.
Funny to see a shrinking, rejected Party of nitwits accusing the winners of incompetence.
Last I looked, the Dictionary had Rmoney's picture neat to the word 'incompetent'.
Keep whining, loser!!
You voted with the ignorant majority to continue the incompetent Obama's devastation of the USA, fool! LOL

That I want less government and most of all less government spending and that the Defense budget is the biggest discretionary cow out there and I want "defense" to mean "defense of the USA" not conflicts with my libertarianism how???

I understand the confusion what with all the BS that spews from your leaders but its actually the right that is more opposed to economic freedom than even the left. We can start with their love of protectionist tariffs in the early 20th Century that fueled the Great Depression and follow an uninterrupted thread of economic interventionism through Scott Walker's anti-1st Amendment union busting.

At heart you're a Nazi.

I can tell you why, the Constitution defines the government and does not dictate a particular economic system but capitalism is heavily implied. Can you think of any other economic system that is compatible with the Constitution? I can't.

Doin' a whole lot better than Bush. Bush increased spending 80%, spending in Obama's first term increased 8%. I do take issue with the fact that Obama hasn't ended Bush's retarded wars and has in fact expanded the drone war up to and including targeting US citizens. If McCain or Romney had been elected we'd be in or heading into war with Iran and/or China. Either would be disastrous.

Mistakingly cut instead of copied this part of sonic's post - Krauthammer's scathing analysis of Obama...
"He's been using this -- and I must say with great skill, and ruthless skill, and success -- to fracture and basically shatter the Republican opposition. The only redoubt of the opposition is the House. And his objective from the very beginning was to break the will of the Republicans in the House, and to create an internal civil war, and he's done that. How did he do it? By always insisting from day one after the election that Republicans had to raise rates ... he did that because he knew it would create a crisis among Republicans, and it did."
...sonic thought it was complimentary.
sonic - and many others here - know better but they seek out opportunities to misrepresent what the opposition says and use it to their benefit. If a conservative writer is doing a parody of Liberalism, say, they might intentionally take it to be a serious piece of confessional soul-searching. Deception is nothing new to the sonics here on Topix.
