Black republicans see it differently. They see voting to remain on another kind of democrat plantation is not in their best interests.

You are totally wrong.
The Departments of State, Justice, Treasury, and Defense (War) are carrying out functions specifically authorized by the Constitution.
All other Cabinet departments are outside the Constitution.
No, I'm not wrong. You said we should eliminate "every federal department and function" not specifically authorized. The entities and departments I mentioned are not specifically authorized.

Then you should have no problem with the federal government, since, by your own admission, welfare payments, federal regulations, taxes, etc. do not come from the federal government. So your beef is with individual taxpayers.

Using your logic, when a police officer is shot, there is no sense having a surgeon remove the bullet and save his life. After all, he will probably just get shot again.
The point is helping people who need help. So what if the money comes from the federal government. I suspect that most of the homeowners who are suffering in those areas have payed plenty in federal taxes at some point in their lives. Some of them may have even lost their sons in wars they were sent to fight by the federal government. Do I think people like that are owned something by the federal government? You bet I do.
If the people had any logic they would not build a home next to the water that they KNOW damn well will one day be washed away. Build any thing anywhere you want. But do not ask all of America to pay for it when it's gone because you were stupid.

WELL, HERE'S THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT INVADING IRAQ. WHEN YOU KILL 500,000 PEOPLE TO PUNISH A TYRANT FOR KILLING 160,000 PEOPLE THERE IS SOME POSSIBILITY THE REMAINING PEOPLE WON'T VIEW YOUR INTERVENTION WITH GOOD FAVOR.
AMERICA HAS REPEATEDLY COMMITTED MONEY AND FORCE TO SUPPORTING RIGHT WING DICTATORS, CAUSES, MOVEMENTS. OUR MILITARY AND THE MILITARY INDUSTRIALS ARE DECIDEDLY RIGHT WING. RIGHT WING IS A NICE WAY OF SAYING FASCIST. SO LET ME SAY IT FOR YOU: AMERICA'S FOREIGN POLICY, AT LEAST AS FAR AS CONFLICTS ARE CONCERNED, IS FASCIST. WE ARE A FASCIST STATE AND OUT MILITARY IS A FASCIST ORGANIZATION WHICH ENDORSES FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANITY AS THE MEANS BY WHICH FASCISM IS INCULCATED IN THE TROOPS.
IT MAY NOT HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY, BUT SOONER RATHER THAN LATER SOME IDIOT FUNDAMENTALIST GENERAL, BOYKIN POSSIBLY OR ONE LIKE HIM, WILL ATTEMPT TO USE THE INDOCTRINATED TROOPS UNDER HIS COMMAND TO TRY AND EXECUTE A COUP AGAINST THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. I MYSELF, AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. IT'S PAST TIME WE CLEANED OUT THE RAT'S NEST THAT IS THE AMERICAN MILITARY.
Again with the chickenfeed. There were 60 million killed in WWII, God only knows how many Roosevelt(D) was responsible for. Then of course we have Truman(D), the only man in history to use atomic weapons - twice. He personally incinerated 200,000 Japs in retaliation for killing 'only' 2,400 Americans at Pearl Harbor, but who's counting?

I don't know about you, but I made a bunch of money this week, as the market rose almost 4%.

You know a big rally is coming, housing stocks like Pulte have more than doubled since summer. The economy is coming back, and if the House would get out of the way, it would improve faster.

You're the only rightie on here who seems to understand stocks, so why you all gloom and doom??

White House Plans To Overwhelm NRA With Rapid Victory
The White House and gun control supporters are gearing up for an a whirlwind month, with plans to pass reform legislation before outrage over the Sandy Hook massacre has a chance to fade.
While the fiscal cliff has dominated Washington’s attention in recent weeks, lawmakers and activists are laying the groundwork for their big push. Vice President Joe Biden, tasked with heading a commission to investigate gun violence, has been quietly meeting with experts, interest groups, and public officials and is expected to release a set of recommendations within weeks. Boston mayor Thomas Menino, co-chair of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told the Boston Herald this week that an optimistic Biden had assured him that Obama would sign legislation “by the end of January.”
“We had been led to believe their report would come by end of January, but we’re hearing they may want to have something out by January 15, even quicker than expected,” Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told TPM.

They are really opening an assault upon us on a broad front. Have not seen such assault upon freedom so boldly since..... Don't even know. The real question is whether of not luberaks and their gun-grabbing authocrat idols will move faster than people waking up.

I'm not convinced he will not trigger major situations here. If 1% of the gun owners is just a fraction of as nuts as LIBS portray them as, then some hard iron needs to come behind this legislation. Obviously all sides know this, so us others will be commenting upon this (hopefully), join in (or suppotlrting Feds killing its own people) or leave country with enough fire power on both sides that it is not worth it.....

Time will tell, but there is no future living with liberals and "conservatives" are absolute fools if they continue this. I'll rather die than be a slave, but I would rather live and see my kids grow up. Guess it,s time to scour the world-map again and watch the gold price more than the paper tiger called DJI

Admit it.
Obama has invaded Turkey, and will take over Turkey first, then finish off Assad in Syria.
Obama's gonna kill lots of Muslims, proving that he is one of them!!
(Just wanted to throw that in before Carol or her new buddy Dweeb does!!)
President Obama would never say "I'm the War President"

The forces will augment Turkey's air defence capabilities and contribute to the de-escalation of the crisis along the Alliance's border," Eucom said in a statement.

"The deployment will be defensive only and will not support a no-fly zone or any offensive operation," it added.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says more than 44,000 people have been killed since the uprising began nearly two years ago, including nearly 31,000 civilians

The UN believes up to four million people inside Syria are soon going to need humanitarian aid, up from 2.5 million. Another 500,000 Syrians have also fled to neighbouring countries.

You mean Reagan/HW Bush quadrupling the debt doesn't count?
True, but Reagan use to be a Democrat prior to converting into a Republican after the split of the Old & New Left which took over the Democrat Party and which Reagan still held onto those Modern Liberal Views of FDR which were abandoned by the New Left who took over the Democrat Party and its Direction which has been for the worse since the implementation of the Great Society.
