Well if you are all going to quote HItler here one of my favorite speeches of his. Sounds like something an occupy Wall street person would say7.
"We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." --Adolf Hitler
(Speech of May 1, 1927. Quoted by Toland, 1976, p. 306)
Hitler the politician, speaking to socialists in an attempt to win them to his Fascist cause. Of course after taking power, the Nazis worked well with German business, eventually supplying slave labor from the camps to work in their factories.

You don't know much, do you? Just that magic scarey word "socialism," I guess...:)

Politicians looking for savings to deal with the national debt crisis should perhaps start by working from home.
Barack Obama and his family cost the taxpayer $1.4billion per year, according to a recently published book.
By contrast, the British Royal Family costs less than $60million each year.

DailyMail is a reactionary, right-wing Brit publication in league with American Righties.

The American "Debt Crisis" (an imaginary construct to start with) is only a "problem" because GOPee asshats in Congress keep grandstanding, obstructing, and sabotaging our economy.

Dumb cretin.

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim

Actually it's the far Right which uses that very tactic, and you are one of its MANY victims. False information is at the heart of ALL of the far Right media, whether on radio, TV, or Internet.

If Congress had done what the American people wanted, in leiu of spending cuts, they would have asked them to shut the Government down until the elected officials came to their senses. Since that will never happen, then Thank God for those who prevent the crazies from spending any more on useless nonsense

I've never claimed to "know everything." I'm just making a statement, you're free to dispute it if you can. Frankly, Hitler comparisons are out of place and offensive when it comes to Mr. Obama's administration.

It wouldn't surprise me if Germany was the first country for paid vacations, but a lot of their social benefits go back to Bismarck. He wanted to try to head off the Socialists by granting social benefits to German workers.

Useless nonsense pretty much sums up your posts. The Teabaggers are not "the American people." They're just a crazy ol' bunch of aging white people who don't want to contribute to society.

It isn't just members of the Taxed Enough Already group that wants fiscal responsibility. The American working, taxpayers are fed up. Now the IMF wants $1.70 to help with world wide global warming. That is not a funny joke anymore.

You are being told lies about the true intentions of those who seek to take your Gun Rights by attrition and they have much history to show them how to do it. Those who suggest this is happening are branded as paranoid conspiracy nuts, a tactic of the Gaslighting process. The approach is as clever and effective as it is diabolical and many in America will fall prey to it. Those who recognize it for what it is will face difficult choices -comply or resist both of which carry adverse consequences.
We study history to understand where the future is likely to carry us and now you are living it. Either you are going to be a part of deciding your own destiny or you will allow others to determine it for you. I choose the former.
"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future."
- Adolf Hitler, C: 1935 ---Unquote---
See the etymology of the term at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaslighting
The Hitler quote is a fake one, and your paranoia demonstrates your complete looniness and Right-wing absurdities.

But I will say one thing - some, like myself, are openly saying we need to repeal the 2nd Amendment and end the gun mania in America with tough, sensible 21st-century gun controls. Time for the Wild West era to end, once and for all.

Found some interesting facts.
Cuba has very strict Gun Laws and in fact all but prohibit private ownership of Guns.
Yet its murder rate is slightly higher then the USA.
According to the UN its Murder rate is5 per 100,000 versus the USA 4.8 per 100,000.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie...
Now how could a nice progressive country that prohibit gun ownership have a higher murder rate then the USA?
