Latin stuff is "so cool?" Just when I'm putting myself out there brokering a rapprochement you come up with the one thing more repulsive to me than cooked spinach. All I think of when I hear Latin bandied about is Miss Scelsi back in the ninth grade. She threw the book at me... literally! Little witch.
I'm also sorry but a degree of condescension is going to be necessary between us from time to time because you and Leo don't seem to be able to come to terms and I am obliged and always happy to support her in whatever she endeavors. On the other hand you seem to invite it? Oh well, at least you have your service record to fall back on.
I think I mentioned I was a veteran too, having robbed cases of M-16's from the (********* Armoury and lit the match that eliminated all draft records and files for the whole of Western Massachusetts. I like to think I served with distinction. We've apparently both been in the trenches but on opposite sides.
Leo huh. I'm sure you have your reasons. Yes, there is my service record. And you'll be eternally grateful that the WPP was able to provide 'you' some peace of mind.:)

Would that be the recession caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse, moron?
The recession started in the 4th quarter of 2007.
So you think Dodd & Frank took oversight in 2005?
No wonder you are such a dumbass.

Demorats took over Congress in Jan of 2007. Two years later would be Jan of 2009. The recession had been in process 13 months by then. Housing slide started in 2006.
The recession started 4th quarter of 2007. I have asked you a gazillion times to list the legislation the Democrats passed on the first 10 moths of 2007 that took us from your proclaimed Bush rosy economy to the worst recession in 80 years.
Come on Fletch,, dontcha have an answer???
Bring up dick Cheney's terminology. The guy who created two quagmire wars. Yep, listen yo him.
I have explained to you a gazillion times there was no legislation needed after the Republicans gave to the Democrats no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq. It wasn't until there was nothing left for the Republicans to give them that they stabbed the Republicans in the back and started condemning the Iraq front they supported and started slandering the American veterans.

Two years... one year eight months... let's round to two years, moron.

Are you talking about the recession caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse?

Tell us again how you convinced those governments of those foreign countries to force the Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for your investigation that you claim to have gotten the data from to make your ludicrous claim that the Democrats' Marxist CRA program didn't collapse our economy. That's the same as you telling us you looked into the confidential files at Obama's publisher's office with Obama's signature on the contracts.

You're a lying fraud.

Sorry...your request must have been contained in those 500 posts I jumped over.
Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969), the United States Supreme Court held that government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless that speech is directed to inciting, and is likely to incite, imminent lawless action.
Brandenburg v. Ohio is responsible for the "imminent lawless action test"..."speech is not protected by the First Amendment if the speaker intends to incite a violation of the law that is both imminent and likely."
"Innocence of Muslims" is, without a doubt, "likely to incite, imminent lawless action."
Galt is well aware of that case, which destroys your argument:

"The constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit a state to forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force, or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action."

This test has been modified very little from its inception in 1969 and the formulation is still good law in the US. Only speech that poses an imminent danger of unlawful action, where the speaker has the intention to incite such action and there is the likelihood that this will be the consequence of his or her speech, may be restricted and punished by that law.

The standard is imminent danger of unlawful action, and the speaker must have the intention to incite such action.

One cannot lose their First Amendment rights just because some crazy people react like primitive savages.

Let's see....

Panetta's CIA is tracking bin Laden down, and Holder's FBI clears a suicide bomber to enter the CIA's compound in Afghanistan who blows himself up and kills 7 members of the team tracking bin Laden down.

40 minutes before SEAL Team 6 lands in bin Laden's compound it was leaked to Valerie Jarrett the mission was happening and she issues an abort order (later explained with the excuse someone was looking at the weather map for the wrong day) and summons Obama from the golf course to her office. Obama didn't even have a clue the operation was happening.

Panetta killed bin Laden, moron. The administration did everything they could to stop him, to include blowing 7 CIA operatives up.

Now, since you butted in, how about you take this on:

John Kerry only reported some of the problems that were happening in Vietnam. His efforts likely helped end that quagmire in Vietnam a little earlier saving soldiers lives. He volunteered in Vietnam & volunteered for dangerous duty on the rivers. He received 3 Purple Hearts

Its funny how easily you Tea Party scumbags throw a vet under the bus because he doesn't agree with your politics.

George W Bush invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden. He later declared him irrelevant throwing those that died during 9-11 under the bus. Mission failed miserably as he left office with a quagmire in Afghanistan.

George W Bush told us we had to invade Iraq because they had WMDs. None were found. Then he said he invaded because Sadam had ties to Al Qaeda, Then He said he invade to spread Democracy. You then said they were all lies because Bush invaded Iraq for strategic positioning. Which is it??

None of this was the fault of the military. It was the fault of the White House & George W Bush.

How may military personnel died because of this??

But hey. that John Kerry really hates the military, right jackass.

How can a video that got a grand total of 17 hits from around the world be the cause of anything? Why wasn't the cause the thousand other anti-Islam videos on the internet? Besides, that video didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack.

Not true. You cannot incite anyone to riot and that is what "Innocence of Muslims" has proven to do.

The recession started in December of 2007. Not even 11 months. Housing started the slide in 2006.

You can not produce a shred of evidence that CRA loans were the root cause. Statistics show that the percentage of failed loans that were CRA was about the same percentage of all loans that were CRA. CRA loans were standard long term loans.

It is obvious that a pretend oilfield engineer, that did not know fracking used water, would also not know anything about SPVs.

The people that published the book of authors said that Obama was never called about the bio.

Can't you come up with something new. Your old lies are getting really boring.

Well, Jesus didn't march an army around the Arab world slaughtering everyone in his path like Muhammed. Jesus didn't write a guide to enslave the world.
