As I pointed out previously, Ian has not yet accepted responsibility for destroying his own life.
I also stated that Ian blames God for Ian's dysfunctions.

You should have accepted the help offered to you by the DOC psych.

I don't really need you're help confirming my diagnoses of you're condition, but thank you anyway.

They were Godly men Tom Joad, by that I mean believers of God's having a reality that exists mostly beyond our comprehension, but I also believe they knew themselves to not be perfect.
I believe they were inspired through this belief to make a fight to establish our Republic, from this inspiration they gave us the best Constitution followed with the Bill of Rights. They fought for secular and non-secular freedoms alike because they did not want a theocracy but more the beginnings of a true Democracy within the Republic.

"We the people" need to remember these self evident truths.
I'm fine with your opinion. God didn't make us to be perfect, man sometimes makes the wrong choices just as the 1st coupling of mankind did.

Our Nations founders fought and died for us so long ago just as I will stand by you today to celebrate our freedom to our own beliefs.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what REALLY sticks in Tuckers craw.
You're right. It does. That someone would be satisfied "canceling out" someone's vote. I can't even get my arms around that.

I vote my principles Stu. I don't trying and figure out what Disco Stu's principles are, and vote opposite of those.

Anyways, carry on, you're doing a hell of a job. As long as you have the most shallow of understanding of the issues, and allow the mass media to lead you around by the nose, you'll continue to "cancel out" my vote. Enjoy.

BTW, I meant to add to both Stu and Bonds, sorry about the "welfare card" statement. I may be 180 degrees away from Stu, but I don't seriously think that.

Not a defense, but that "Ma-at" fellow had me a bit livid as I am friends with the owner of Tulip City Air, and I was foaming at the mouth and that was some spill over.

I truly hope that none of you ever need the "socialist" safety net.

Galt, Mongoose, BD- if you have a stroke tomorrow(and don't think it can't happen), do you have enough money to take care of you and family for life? Have a mil or two in the bank?

If you don't, who is gonna take care of you? Do I have permission to leave you in the gutter like you would like to do to others? I just want to be sure. I wouldn't want big nanny gov't to pay your way.

Not when you don't work there, chief. I HOPE Goose has health coverage from his company when he retires, because there is no way that I should pay for his coverage. Hell no. It's MY money. Why should I take care of him, or you?

Bonds, I do have insurance now and I will have supplemental insurance in retirement.
As a combat wounded veteran, do you think I deserve medical coverage through the veteran's administration at VA hospitals and clinics? Or should I just not complain and die and get it over with?

I don't know, as a new resident Holland seems kind of liberal to me. They sure like to spend money.

I DO- but looking at it from your perspective, isn't that big nanny gov't taking care of you?

I think the goverment made a contract with Goose, Bonds. He puts himself in harms way, and they compensate him.

He doesn't see it that way. He thinks I paid nothing for it.

However, he welcomes illegal aliens and is willing to pay for their schooling, health care, rent, bridge cards, WIC, social security benefits (that they never paid for) but I can't collect on the injuries I received to give him the right to believe that.

Typical liberal. OH WAIT! He says he isn't a liberal. I forgot. Yeah, right. Bonds, you will be paying for my health care. Heheheheheheheeeeee. Enjoy.

Excuse me...I'm confused...again.
You say in one breath that all mans rights come from God (he/she/it doesn't exist btw) in the next breath you say that you gave Bonds his right to believe some such thing or another?

So Mongoose = God?
(rhetorical)

Either way...thanks. Thanks for getting injured (or whatever..killing and such) and thanks for all the rights I now enjoy 'cause some dudes got sent to far off Asia and killed some gooks.

What the hell are you talking about? I never said, insinuated, or discussed anything even close to that, about immigrants or otherwise. Don't lie. I also never said a word about your service, and believe I have thanked you before. I just want to know how it's NOT nanny gov't to give one person health care and not another?

I noticed Rachael Maddow isn't being her usual abrasive and condescending self that last few nights..
She seems to have a little of that liberal venom.

I think she's a little worried that what went around is coming around..

She'' be gone in 6 months and the U-know who's will need a new mouthpiece..
