Maybe the coast is clear. It's hard to say.
But I'm beginning to think the imposters on here are on George Soros' payroll to disrupt this thread intentionally. Too many of us are hitting too close to home.
Wouldn't put it past the liberal propagandists to go that far.
#874527 Mar 15, 2013
Ah, but it IS I, old friend. Not sure where you were going with the head-camping thing though?
#874528 Mar 15, 2013
I feel a lot safer now.
It's like a heavyweight has been lifted from my shoulders.

This is kind of funny.
I'm going to give it A Funny Judge It.
Tell me if it shows up in The Windows.
It shows up on mine ...
Just tone down the Histrionics. But I love the:
"she's outta control, outta control I tell you"!
And lose the: "I just want a place where I can go and slander liberals, Obama and stuff, I never wanted anything like this!
I never ask for Help in Acheiving what I Myself Accomplish. Besides, I've got a place to slander "and stuff".
I mean, if you're in training to be ME,'ya gotta get it right, kid !!
Angelina Histrioni would have been funnier. Just a tip on helping you hone your creative writing skills.
Now, go get 'em, kitty-kat-kat !!!

The New Republic (TNR) is a liberal American magazine of commentary on politics and the arts published continuously since 1914.
New Republic editor Michael Whitney Straight (1948 to 1956) was later discovered to be a spy for the KGB.
In 1995, writer Ruth Shalit was fired for repeated incidents of plagiarism and an excess of factual errors in her articles.
In 1998, features writer Stephen Glass was revealed in a Forbes Digital investigation to have fabricated a story called "Hack Heaven". An investigation found that most of Glass' stories had used or been based on fabricated information.
In July 2007, after The New Republic published an article by an American soldier in Iraq titled "Shock Troops," allegations of inadequate fact-checking were leveled against the magazine. Critics alleged that the piece contained inconsistent details indicative of fabrication.
So much for credibility when it comes to this article.

It.. it was in my sweat lodge last weekend. It came to me in a dream that... I don't know how to say it... we sucked down about 12 peyote buttons each and the next thing you know I could see the entire conservative movement spread out before me on the prairie. In my dream they were all just pink assholes. No, I mean really, just puckered brownish pink anuses spread out as far as the eye could see. They were trying to say something to me, but I had to get out of there and I ran and ran like a deer chased by a ravening wolf.
Ever since then I've realized that I wasn't cut out to be a conservative. Well, old friend, there you have it.

Look, I'm not here to argue.

Sounds like reading or watching any 'news' story from Fox News, best to view with a ton of skepticism.

The Ryan Budget’s Sigh of Resignation
Writing in the New Republic, in 2005, less than a year after the reelection of George W. Bush had left many liberals feeling that they’d lost the “war of ideas,” Jonathan Chait, as ever contrary, insisted that there was no need for “new” ideas. The old ones, so to speak, were just fine. What the center-left lacked was the power to enact them:
It’s one thing for Democrats to sketch out the sort of alternatives they would prefer if they ran Washington. But, as long as Republicans do run Washington—and certainly as long as Bush sits in the Oval Office—doing nothing is often going to be the best available scenario for liberals. Emphasizing the downside of bad change rather than the upside of positive change reflects political necessity, not intellectual failure.
I thought of Chait’s piece as I read through House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s latest annual budget resolution, otherwise known as “The Path to Prosperity.” If you pulled Ryan aside and threw the Lasso of Truth around him, I imagine he’d say something very like what Chait expressed in 2005:“I like my ideas. I could have done a lot more to realize them if I were vice president. But for now, I have to wait.”
The Ryan budget has two overarching policy objectives: 1) Entitlement reform: specifically, putting a limit on Medicare’s annual budget and giving states a lot more flexibility over their Medicaid rolls; and 2) radically simplifying the tax code.
Ryan is no fool; he knows there is no chance the Obama administration will accept Medicare premium support or Medicaid block-granting. But it’s what he believes should be done, and so he’s proposing it as a matter of course. There is, however, a sliver of hope that Republicans will reach an agreement with Obama on tax reform. As Ezra Klein has noticed, Ryan’s budget is vaguer in this area than it had been. A top tax rate of 25 percent is not a hard plank, but rather a “goal” he’d like Congress to “achieve.”
Add that wiggle room to Ryan’s remark yesterday that he has no desire to relitigate the fiscal cliff battle over revenue, and you have a white smoke signal that says,“On taxes, we might be able to do some business.”
Some of my favorite Ryan-watchers, like Ross Douthat and James Pethokoukis, had clearly been hoping that Ryan would produce something fresher and less straitened than he did. I appreciate where they’re coming from, and yet, perhaps too charitably, I’m reading in the Ryan Budget 3.0 a Chait-like sigh of resignation—of resignation to, as he has put it more than once since losing in November, the “reality of divided government.”
Aside from its base-stroking unrealism about a balanced budget in 10 years, there is a subtle sort of realism about this new Ryan budget. In its very lack of creative “new ideas,” there is an admission that “The Path to Prosperity” no longer has the magic-rabbit power it had after the 2010 midterm election. It’s a budget document scarcely worth more than the PDF pixels in which it’s displayed.
I think Ryan knows this, and expended very little effort to hide the fact.

This is a question that most conservatives seem not to have thought about at all. Why do conservatives think inequality has risen over the last four decades? What caused middle-class wage stagnation? Is it that the government is too big and tax rates are too high? If so, why was inequality lower and wage growth stronger back when tax rates were higher?
Middle class wages seem to be stagnating for reasons that the government cannot fix by cutting spending. Republicans' failure to grapple with this truth has led them to advance a budget proposal that only makes the problem worse.
Democrats, meanwhile, have an agenda to deal with widening inequality: a stronger safety net (actually stronger, not "stronger" in the Orwellian sense that Ryan uses the word) financed by higher taxes on people with high incomes.
Soul-searching Republicans have identified lots of problems with the party: "tone," an inability to relate to minorities, actual and perceived retrograde positions on social issues, a loss of credibility on foreign policy. These are all very real problems. But they pale in comparison to the fact that the party's economic agenda, as embodied in the latest Ryan budget, is simply terrible for the vast majority of Americans.
It's like the 1930s all over again: Republicans will be a minority party until they realize they must change their economic agenda to better serve more Americans.

We do not have to wait for another right winger to spew his/her racist crap. The thread has the phoney, hypocrite, racist, you,

Still "sucking down" peyote? Well, that explains it.
Try the Ayahuasca. It's the best in The Forest.
Sucking peyote grown under cow manure is like ordering pizza in a San Pedro Inn.
Or anything but the **Veal in a Five Star Italian Restaurant.
**Which I don't eat. But, if you like Veal ...
