I would be as nuts as you if a took time to "carefully" read all the inane gibberish you right wing morons write. I can't believe you're getting an erection for what amounts to a typo.
You losers are so desperate to win at anything you jump up and down for silly shit like this .
How did you ever get to be an "OldRaider" thinking like that?
Does the word Communism mean anything to you? Know what it is?
Collective where everyone puts into the pot and everyone gets a certain ammount out. Just like Obama is doing now. re-distribution of wealth has no place in America.
Socialism/Communism has never worked for the people.
They work just fine until you run out of other people's money.
Obama is just now going to start learning that lesson when hina cuts him off. You can't borrow this kind of money and expect it to last forever--well maybe you can.

OBAMA THE BIG LIE wrote:
The ol’ double standard was alive and well last week, as former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Democrat of Illinois, pleaded guilty in a Washington federal court to stealing three-quarters of a million dollars from campaign funds.
No, the media were not defending Jackson’s seven-year crime spree, which included his wife, a onetime Chicago alderman, filing false income tax returns. Nor were they comparing Jackson favorably with other political miscreants&#8203;—&#82 03;although the Washington Post’s resident snarkmeister, Dana Milbank, came close:“Jackson’s problem,” he explained,“was that he did what everybody else does&#8203;—&#8203;but he took it to a new level of excess.”
No, it was the mournful, elegiac, even respectful, tone of the coverage that impressed The Scrapbook. This was not an occasion for harsh judgment or pointed satire, but a family misfortune&#8203;—&#82 03;a steep, poignant, relentless fall from grace&#8203;—&#8203;un folding in public view. As Jackson acknowledged his monumental thievery to the court, readers were treated to vignettes of his manifest sadness (“Tell everybody back home I’m sorry I let them down”), lamentations about his once-promising career, and descriptions of the family patriarch
This is small change compared to Bush's war-by-lies in Iraq. You talk about Jackson stealing 3/4 of a million.

That is peanuts compared to the billions of taxpayer dollars that went to the military-industrial complex for a war that didn't have to be fought.

And you can be sure some of that money went right into the pockets of the Republican Party as campaign contributions.

a new constitution from the people will most certainly include:
Universal health care of some kind.
Clarification of the Second Amendment.
End to gerrymandering.
Same sex marriage.
Right to abortion.
Political term limits.
Less difficult amendment process.
(all of which have over 50% approval in the polls)
take a min or two and check out how a constitutional convention works . The population of ghetos in urban centers dosnt mater in this case.

You're doing great, its just so easy to get careless when dealing with these clueless losers. Every time I think that I'm being set up by something they've written that is so bizarre they can't be serious, I realize they actually meant it.
IT'S A LOT WORSE WHERE I AM, I FEAR. THEY SPEND THEIR ENTIRE ENERGIES CRITICIZING THE EFFORTS OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT THAT THEY THEMSELVES ELECTED WITH A MANDATE TO DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE DOING. IT'S A FORM OF INSANITY THAT'S HARD TO WATCH OR FOLLOW. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ATTACK THEMSELVES AND EVERYBODY ELSE, CEASELESSLY. IF YOU SAY RIGHT, THEY SAY UP. IF THEY SAY DOWN, THEN THEY SAY ACROSS. PERSONALLY, I'VE REACHED THE POINT WHERE I DON'T EVEN LISTEN BECAUSE IT'S JUST NONSENSE INTENDED TO DISTRACT FROM WHATEVER THEIR TRUE PURPOSE IS. THEIR TRUE PURPOSE IS TO DESTROY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THERE IS NO OTHER PURPOSE. THEY WILL HAPPILY ARGUE BOTH SIDES OF AN ARGUMENT AND EVEN INVENT NEW ONES FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT IF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WORK, CAN'T WORK, THAT, EVENTUALLY PEOPLE WILL SIMPLY IGNORE IT. YOU KNOW ALL THAT, I KNOW, BUT IT HELPS ME TO JUST SAY IT OUT LOUD SOMETIMES. I NEED TO BE MINDFUL OF THE PEOPLE I'M WORKING TO DESTROY, AND DESTROY THEM I WILL.

Isn't there something unconstitutional about private interest groups having the president's ear four times a year to the tune of $500,000? Not to mention their influence on policy decisions with that kind of cash?

Or is that called bribery?

The inner city ghettos and projects of modern America, reservatons and preserves in California are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of hate filled liberalism, ignorance, racism, bigotry, poverty, abortion, and killing fields for blacks.

95% of Obama followers are ignorant, lies the slave master tell their slaves to keep them from running away, the other 5% Obama's rich elite, keep them that way.

Nonsense.

Communism has proven successful in Vietnam, even after we wrecked it and left.

Communism has succeeded in China. The people are far better off than under Chiang Kai-Shek

The Cuban peasants have fared far better under Castro than Batista. The government has developed literacy programs and free medical care. Cuban doctors are among the best in the world. They are sent all over the world to help developing countries.

Finally Russia. Russia has been the laggard, but they were economically crippled by two world wars fought inside their territory. That, plus the cost of the Cold War arms race.

The Russian economy is now developing at a steady clip. They are becoming giants in the oil sector. Gazprom supplies Europe with all its natural gas needs.

You were saying?
