American Exceptionalism and Dissident Conservatives
"Our constitutional inheritance, while not solely our own, is distinctive and has formed the basis for a liberal and representative government that was at one time extremely rare in the world. Indeed, the more convinced one is of the uniqueness of the American experience, the less one should be inclined to try recreating that experience in every other country on earth."

That makes sense, look what sharing our nuclear secrets got us in to. Well, it's not like other nations wouldn't have figured it out on their own__eventually.

But it would have been a hoot to watch them during the trial and error period eh?

Anyone remember "The Atomic Kid?"

In 1969 the Vietnam anthem was Hey Jude by the Beatles__strange but true.
CCR's Fortunate Son was about how the sons of political and financial heavyweight's sons were mysteriously exempted from "meaningful" service to country.
Green Days Favorite Son was a smackdown of GWB.
Agree that 60's and 70's music was superb no matter the genre it was all good.
Ok. Didn't know that. Yes I know. Quite familiar with John's music. Haven't heard it but will. Yes.

Btw, did she ever back up your. "Cattleman's convention" statement?
She doesn't have to.

I have the post.

If you'd like, I can let you twist in the wind, as I did with Gunner's lies concerning 'Kleen Energy'.

Then, when you've lied about it enough, I put up your post.

Or, you can avoid all that and admit to what you said.

Gunner never quite got over the humiliation I handed him!!

Nor will you.

You should probably see the irony that helping disaster victims is coming from the right and that ensuring the safety of Americans is one of the few roles of the federal government.
Handing out food stamps like they're candy while strangling the job market at the same time...not so much.
Spending billions on pointless "research" projects...not so much either.
You didn't have to put your two cents in, already knew you were a big government socialist.

In other news about 400 US troops along with their equipment have begun arriving in Turkey to man Patriot missile batteries along with Dutch and German troops.

400 is a long way from 30,000 as another poster from Loveland CO suggested last week.

Actually 400 is 400 too many imo but Turkey has been a mostly reliable ally going way back.

SAY, UM, WHEN YOU WERE CLEANING TOILETS FOR A LIVING DID YOU FALL INTO THE HABIT OF EATING THE LITTLE WAX CAKES IN THE BOTTOMS OF THE URINALS? THOSE ARE NOT FACTS YOU MENTION, THEY ARE FACTOIDS IN SOME CASES AND PURE FABRICATION IN OTHERS. HISTORY IS AN UNINTERRUPTED STREAM OF EVENTS IN THE TRADITIONAL PERCEPTION, IT DOES NOT COME IN UNRELATED FOUR OR EIGHT YEAR CHUNKS.
RONALD REAGAN DOUBLED THE NATIONAL DEBT TRYING TO PRETEND THE NATIONAL MALAISE WAS A CARTER ERA FABRICATION AND TO HELP AMERICAN MORALE RECOVER FROM THE STAGGERING DEFEAT IN VIETNAM. IT WAS FELT IN CONGRESS AT THE TIME THAT AMERICA COULDN'T BEAR ONE MORE SCANDAL OR HE WOULD'VE BEEN IMPEACHED AN REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR PAYING THE AYATOLLAHS TO ARM THE RIGHT WING CONTRAS. YOU REMEMBER IRAN, RIGHT? THE OL' AXIS OF EVIL?
THE DOUBLING OF THE DEBT AND THE ATTEMPT TO ARM VICIOUS RIGHT-WING PARAMILITARIES BY HAVING FINANCIAL AND WEAPONS DEALINGS WITH OUR ARCH ENEMIES ARE RELATED. THEY DID NOT OCCUR INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER.
THE FINANCIAL HISTORY OF THE FIRST OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS ONE OF SIMPLY HAVING TO DEAL WITH THE WRETCHED EXCESSES OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATIONS: A TAX CUT IN THE FACE OF TWO WARS, A HOUSING BUBBLE CREATED BY DEREGULATION, ETC., ETC.. YOU CANNOT LOOK AT ONE SET OF FACTOIDS WITHOUT LOOKING AT ALL OF THEM.
THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY FOR MANY MANY YEARS KNEW VERY WELL THAT IT COULD NOT TAKE POWER ON ITS OWN. IT NEEDED A WEDGE, A WAY TO DRUM UP SUPPORT FOR GREED AND AVARICE AND OUTRIGHT THIEVERY SO IT BEGAN TO MANIPULATE FOLKS LIKE YOU USING SOCIAL ISSUES: HOMOSEXUALITY, ABORTION, THINGS THE THE INDUSTRY CARED NOT ONE WHIT ABOUT, BUT WHICH IT KNEW DROVE THE RURAL AND UNEDUCATED FOLKS IN THE "HEARTLAND." WITHOUT THESE CRAZY STOOPID ALLIES THE FINANCIAL AND INSURANCE INDUSTRIES WOULD LOSE BATTLE AFTER BATTLE. BUT WITH YOU... WITH YOU THEY COULD RULE THE WORLD, SORT OF... AND THROW IN A COUPLE "PATRIOTIC" WARS AND A HANDFUL OF MARKETING TERMS LIKE, 9/11, TERRORISM, RIGHT TO LIFE, DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE, AND HECK! YOU GOT YOU A CON-VOY!
THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT COST A LOOOTOTTTTTTTTT OF MONEY TO MAKE THE CONVOY AND HOW SHOULD YOU PAY FOR IT WITHOUT HAVING TO KICK IN ANY FUNDS OF YOUR OWN? I KNOW! LET'S JUST RUN UP A BIG TAB AND THEN LEAVE IT TO THE OTHER GUY COMING ALONG BEHIND! AND HERE, FINALLY, WE GET TO STOP AND TAKE A BREATH AND LOOK AT YOUR SO-CALLED FACTS DEAD IN THE FACE.
IT'S YOUR DEBT, YOU OWN IT. AND NOW YOU'RE GONNA PAY FOR IT. AND FURTHERMORE, KEEP YOUR WEASLEY LITTLE MOUTH SHUT OR I'LL STUFF SUMTHIN' LONG AND BLACK AND SCALY IN IT.
Outstanding.

WELL, AS AN ANALOGY I SUPPOSE YOU COULD SAY: YOU DON'T START BLAMING THE QUARTERBACK WHILE HE'S STILL PLAYING THE GAME!(I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU PEOPLE LIKE TO COUCH REAL WORLD EVENTS IN SPORTS TERMINOLOGIES.)
I BELIEVE I'VE ALREADY ACCOUNTED FOR THE ENTIRE FOUR YEARS OF THE PRESIDENT'S FIRST TERM. SOMEONE SKIPPED OUT AND LEFT HIM WITH A BIG BILL THINKING IT WOULD SINK HIM AND THEN THEY COULD GET BACK IN THERE AND START LINING THEIR POCKETS AGAIN. OOPSIES! WITH THE HOUSE ENTIRELY BLOCKED BY THE ORGANIZED INTRANSIGENCE OF TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS THERE NEITHER WAS NOR IS ANY CHANCE OF PASSING USEFUL LEGISLATION BY TRADITIONAL MEANS. SO WHERE'S THAT LEAVE HIM?
HE COULD DO TO "THEM" WHAT HIS PREDECESSOR DID TO HIM AND JUST CREATE A COMPLETE MORASS AND THEN HAND IT TO HIS PRESUMABLY REPUBLICAN SUCCESSOR AND SAY, "HERE, ASSHOLE, IT'S ALL YOURS, CONGRATULATIONS!" BUT THAT WOULD BE CRASS AND DISHONORABLE. HE COULD FLAIL HIS ARMS AND POINT TO THE OBSTRUCTIONISM OF BUSINESS INTERESTS INTERESTED IN THEIR OWN PROFITS, BUT WHAT GOOD WOULD THAT DO THE REST OF US? THEY'VE ALREADY SAID THEY'RE WILLING TO DO A JOHN GALT AND FLEE THE COUNTRY.
SO WHAT CAN HE POSSIBLY DO IN A SECOND TERM THAT WOULD BENEFIT MOST EVERYONE WITHOUT FURTHER ENRICHING A HANDFUL OF IGNORANT GREEDY GRABBERS AT THE "TOP" - WHEREVER THAT IS - OF THE FINANCIAL FOOD CHAIN?
WELL, HERE'S WHAT I RECOMMEND HE DO: HE SHOULD MAKE THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY ACTUALLY HAVE TO SUCK THE COCK OF EVANGELICAL PROTESTANTISM. IF THEY'RE GOING TO STAY IN BED WITH ONE ANOTHER WE SHOULD AT LEAST GET TO WATCH THEM HAVE SEX. HE SHOULD ALLOW SEQUESTRATION TO DESTROY THE NOW MASSIVE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. AND, HE SHOULD EMBRACE THE PROVISIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION IN ALL THEIR VAGUE AND MEANINGLESS GLORY. BY THIS I MEAN HE SHOULD CELEBRATE THE NATION AS AN INDEPENDENT POWER CONTROLLED BY THE PEOPLE, ROUSE THE POPULACE TO ACTION, AND BEGIN TO FORCE INDUSTRY TO DISASSEMBLE THE PERVERSE GLOBAL MARKETPLACE WHICH ALLOWS COMMUNIST NATIONS TO OWN BUSINESSES IN THIS COUNTRY AND AMERICANS TO SHIP JOBS THOSE WHO WOULD BE OUR ENEMIES.
SPECIFICALLY HE SHOULD ADVOCATE FOR A LAW THAT STATES THAT ALL TECH SUPPORT SERVICES MUST BE NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS. THE REPUBLICAN CLOWNS COULDN'T REFUSE HIM. HE SHOULD EXPOSE ISRAEL'S ROLE IN CONTROLLING AMERICAN POLITICS AND FOREIGN AID. I MEAN REALLY! HOW HARD IS IT TO STIR UP RESENTMENT AGAINST JEWS?
AND THEN, AT THE END OF HIS NEXT TERM OR BETTER YET A FEW YEARS AFTER THAT WE CAN SIT DOWN AND FIGURE OUT WHO ACTUALLY WON THE BIG GAME.
My God, you are nothing more than a liberal lackey after all, aren't you. Why waste so much glibness when you can just repeat, "It's not Obama's fault, he's trying as hard as he can, the mountain's too high, the road's too rough." You're pathetic.

This IS the Super Bowl, we're loosing the game, the new quarterback has fumbled repeatedly and thrown interceptions every time he attempts to score. What had been a close game is now a blow-out. But it's not his fault, we have to stick with him to the bitter end, for 'fairness' sake.
