Government was instituted to protect individual rights.

You are probably the only person in the world who calls Colin Powell a trotskyite.

Do you know what a trotskyite is? Or do you just like how the label sounds?

You are tardy - I did all of that yesterday.
For 300 bucks you could buy a minigenerator to power your fridge and a few lights.
NWS is predicting 4-8 foot storm surges - thats pretty high but down from the record breaking 13 they were forcasting earlier.
I'll probably buy a new snow shovel tomorrow. Its time.
Good planning; and I though I was the old Boy Scout.

I really thought 8 a.m. 3 days ahead would be ok. But I was rightfully schooled.

I was doing a repair and needed a couple of large wood screws yesterday afternoon, then thought better of trying to go to Home Depot in this storm-prep season. Decideda the nails I had would do for now.

Did you get the generator? I've never had one. But it's a good idea.

No business would do anything corrupt without gov't?

Greed did not exist before gov't?

When asked by Schultz what, if anything, the remark said about the attitudes of the Republican Party, Colonel Wilkerson (Powell's former chief of staff) said:

"My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable."

Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.

Any other examples? so far you couldn't come up with 1 example of a government department that isn't a) corrupt or b) running in deficits.

The preamble of the Ct constitution and the us declaration of independence lays out the purpose of government, provide "services " isn't declared.

Are the African American folks who are voting for Obama simply because he is black considered just as racist?

I see your 'Zones of denial' are multi-demensional.

Do you believe we live in a post-racial world or simply that it never existed at all?

In other words, dumb or dumber?
