So, all these fiercely independent branches of government in the US supported/support lies and frameups when the US invaded Iraq and acted against several Arab nations?
Where was/is their sense of fair-play and conscience in these most critical matters that test the ethical basis of a nation and its watchdog institutions?
Thats one example in your favor

How about the rest of these examples?
Health Care (pres and court vs current congress)
Syria (congress vs pres)
Appointees (congress vs pres)
Rights of religious workers to sue (Obama admin vs court)
Gitmo (court vs Bush admin)
Global Warming (court vs Bush admin)

You spend enormous amounts of time here criticizing an extinct group of people, and then applying your outdated and biased notions of these people to another, actual living group of people.
That is an obsession. And downright weird.
Well, if I have to look at the number of posts I make compared with yours, the one who spend an enormous amounts of time here is you. This says a lot about your social life...

If it is true that I spend my "enormous" amount of time criticizing an extinct group of people then I challenge you to go back to 6 pags and show all these posts against them. And also the posts where I applied my outdated and biased notions of the old groups to the new one.

According to you these posts of mine must be a lot... LOL

I also received a refund from the IRS last year. Does that mean I cant offer an opinion about the IRS?
Are you really that dumb to not figure out that what he was saying was that your opinion about government is biased, since you rely on government contract?

Democracy that's based on the choice of the majority is a flawed system. The majority is the plodding section of humankind and is rarely right. The pioneers and trendsetters that have lifted society inch by inch from the morass of backwardness and stupidity constitute the minority.
Democracy is the dictatorships of the majority against the minorities.

What alternative system to democracy would you suggest that can reap the consensus of all the citizens, without letting anyone out and unsatisfied?

Mr. "any of various beans used in Mexican style cooking —usually used in plural" would NEVER have the time nor interest to complete the homework you have assigned him.

The demands of his social and professional life are far too great.

His responses tend toward the brief and pithy.

You could take a lesson.

1. His facts were wrong

2. Even if the facts were correct, his notions is wrong. Our country is based on interplay between government and citizenry - the lines are too blurred in daily conduct to really allege bias. Perhaps once could make that allegation in the specific profession one works in - but that is not called bias, that is called conflict of interest.

3. why do you use the word dumb? That is dumb and detracts from the issue.

My responses tend to be brief as FR notes. I'm online a lot because I am online at work a lot and this is an easy respite. Guilty of working other than a 9-5 job.

Thats said, I cover a large breadth of topics. You don't. Thats why I call you obsessed.

In the past I have offered corrections, and others have a well. You ignore them.

You accused me to speak about the same thing, and I challenged you to bring them posts up. That should be an easy task for you, if what you said was true, but as expected you came out with nothing, which prove you are a liar.

Your posts may be brief but if you write many posts, then you are not different by posters who post few but long posts.

There is no point to me to talk about different topics with people that barely say something intelligent or interesting, or that have problem in understanding few concepts, as you did in the other post with Voluntarist.

In the past you offered many interpretations of different denominations which I easily put down showing the contradictions and flaws. You didn't like it. That's fine.

Nah. It wasnt even a govt contract. It was a subcontract. Like I said, me and a zillion other people.
That said, I do provide compliance services to the private sector as well. Making me guilty of....capitalism. Oh the shock to libertarian ears.
rabbee: yes true capitalism, is based on pleasing the customer. which i am, not necessarily for or against. but attempting to please a dishonest customer or vice-versa, can get a little bit more than fraudulent or conspiracy sticky.

but am i led to also assume libertarians, do have a capitolism customer to please themselves with? everyone on earth, has a customer/s they feel obligated to please/satisfy. whether here on earth, or somewhere else. if not to please, their own fantasy thinking.

and correct me if i am wrong, but the interpretation of zillions is - i am not sure exactly how many, but it is certainly a lot.

in fact i began with a government subcontract, to the solar energy research institute. to provide maintenance, and upgrading for data loggers and senior broadcast engineer having a fist class fcc license.

and the next thing i knew, i was an fte as a jr scientist. i always wanted to be a scientist, when i was younger. but never actually thought or no longer dreamed i would become one.

became disgruntled with, the scientific community at an early age. when i first discovered, what everybody said could not be done. but two years later, somebody else did it and got all the credit for it. who is going to listen, to a 12 year old child? who they only thought, had an over active imagination.

Your logic is deeply flawed, my pasta-eating friend.

Assume that I just told you that I was physically quite fit.

Let's suppose that in response you ask me to run around the block in order to prove my claim.

Further, assume that I deny your request (for any number of reasons).

This does not prove that I am NOT physically fit - only that I did not comply with your request.
