As we move closer to the much needed Sequestor notice how both parties are starting to back-off. Republicans because of cuts to defence which is pork-laden and democrats because of minor cuts to entitlements. I said it 30 years ago, it's not a question of if we go bankrupt but WHEN! How many in this fast food, fast divorce, cell phone addicted society could stand humbly in a soup line for a few years untill the caos settles down? Hunker down and get ready cause whether you like it or not it's going to happen.

Ain't never gonna vote for a democrat again, ever
__________

It could be because he's sickened to think of the leader of the local boy scout troup being a pedophile, or the 'drill' sergeant in the army taking his job to heart[or to fanny]. Then also it

could be because of the out-of-control spending in Washington and the ever expanding welfare and 'nanny' state. Or, this person could be a paying member of the NRA and now sees that gun control was just held back until Obama's 2nd term. All those that bought into Obama's silence on gun

control during his first term were duped. Given enough time the USA could become same as the United States of Europe; that is, we could become as liberal as the Euro Zone. But Obama is not only liberal, he's several times more liberal than Bill Clinton or any other Democrat ever elected.

Isn't it wonderful that The President and Tiger Woods are playing a round of golf together today on the Presidents' Day holiday? They really are two of a kind in many ways. Obama can play and

frolic as he wishes during a 2nd term, and Air Force One is his personal taxi always fueled up and ready, on the tax payers' dime. A trip back to Hawaii again next perhaps? It's only a few million dollars to pay for the fuel and pay for the staff and the secret service that come along for the ride.

Be careful what you wish for and vote for. Those that voted Dem were voting for legalized 420 and more food stamps, but they will get so much more than they ever bargained for as the liberal agenda moves forward, and another big part of the agenda is buying hispanic votes for 2016 with the new liberal immigration laws and amnesty policy for many that are already here.

Also I should say that TOPIX is a very low quality web site that serves as a public cesspool. Half the time what's posted here really never even posts. Why "register" here and just have the information available to be hacked or re-distributed later, but the many babbling buffoons and ignoramus goofballs do make it an amusing side show. The goofballs change their handles so many times but who cares? It makes TOPIX similar to the whack-a-mole game.
Ever wonder why Americans are so convinced it's a bad thing to live in a more "liberal" country.

Those "liberal"countries enjoy a better quality of life than our system provides.

Thanks for proving my point. Right Wingers always have am excuse to ignore facts that don't like.

Those European "Socialist" countries provide a quality of life average Americans can only dream of.

Last year I was at a resort on Costa Rica's west cost.

80% of the people there were European Middle Class workers, mechanics, postal workers, carpenters, etc. enjoying their 30 day vacations, government health care, and sufficient incomes to afford a 30 day vacation at a nice resort for themselves and their children.

Yep, the average American would hate to enjoy that quality of life, why that high level of intelligence might make you a "Leeeeeeeeeberal".

And as an accepted 'rebuttal' to this way-far-left-liberal I should post facts and sources on each of the 11 countries on his list that are ranked above the USA?
I would love to, and it would be fun and very easy to do, but the length of it would probably anger many at TOPIX that always like to get in their 2 cents and feel smug about doing so.
Also to do so would be over kill -- to the extreme. I might compare it to using a 50 megaton nuclear warhead to kill a piss-ant. Why bother?
My previous post was only a small sample of what I could have posted about all of this, and it should have been more than enough to show how absurd and naive the premise of those so-called 'facts' presented to me really was.
But if there seems to be enough demand for it, I will be delighted to take it further.
Until then, I should have another burbon. Not Makers Mark though, we don't need the watered down stuff or Wal-Mart hamburger that's partly horse meat. Pay the same or more, and get less. That's the way of the world as the US dollar collapses.

Informed opinion you lose the general public when you even say the word socialist. We as a country have been taught to link socialism to Hitler to scare the uninformed public. If they knew anything about history then they would know that in the depression era Germany was the only country that was prosperous under his socialist government. He destroyed it with his hate and at the same time destroyed the ideology that socialism is good. Capitalism is defined to me as greed and is destroying not only our moral values, but our country as well. It will fall just as all the greedy empires have in the past. It's just a matter of time. Alot of modern advancements have been originated in Germany like space travel. Why not a proven better form of Government? Capitalism is nothing more than government-granted monopoly of the american economy to the top 400. Informed opinion I'm with you only we better be quite or we they might send a drone to our house to blow it up. Good day and God bless.

I might add that, failing any ~relevant facts, clear logic, and sound reasoning, one can often times 'baffle with BS' and thereby disarm an opponent temporarily, until you can have enough time to thrust again with some alternative ruse or deception.
An effective technique, I must say, and it's often used by the MSM and politicians on both sides of the isle.
Using the term 'babbling buffoon' or 'babbling buffoons' can be effective in your business and personal dealings.
Just as using the terms 'ignoramus', and 'ignoramus goofball' seems to be effective from time-to-time. But using then here to describe many of the posters may be totally correct and is in no way being facetious.
