Reality, it's refreshing to see a reasonable mind representing another side of Republican thinking...and although I often disagree, I do agree there needs to be massive change in our Country..from both sides of the aisle. I'm afraid it's not going to happen though, at least not anytime soon.
Unfortunately when I started this thread I never imagined the true fundamental and often, almost violent differences between our political parties, I had thought that we, as Americans, were all in the same boat when it came to our mutual welfare, able to settle our opposing views in a heated but constructive manner. I no longer see it that way.
In retrospect I wish I had never embarked on this sad journey, never discovered Topix, it is making me less tolerant...more hateful...and I think it's time for me to exit, to leave this hate filled pile of shit and focus on the positive.
To Barney, keep up the good fight, Old Army, sorry if I was ass at times.
Well said and I wish you well. All I wish for this nation is a government that will protect us from outside invasion, tax responsibly, spend responsibly, and keep us a truly free people. We don't have that in today's America. I believe that all men and women should be free to make their own decisions in life. I also believe that a person should have to live with the consequences of their decisions (good or bad). I believe that Americans should be willing to help their fellow citizens who have had unforseen circumstances fall on them. I also believe that Americans should help their fellow citizens that have made poor choices in life and have exhausted all means of helping themselves before any help is given. That help SHOULD NOT BE FINANCIAL. We as Americans should deny help to those unwilling to help themselves. I believe America should deny help to any other nation that is Anti-American or any country whos citizens are not willing to put their lives on the line and fight for their own freedoms. I believe our soldiers should be seen as heros and should be given everything they need emotionally and financially from the people (not the government) for their sacrifice and service to this great nation. We owe that to them. I believe that our elected officials should be as it was in our founding where people are nominated by their fellow citizens. They are nominated because citizens see something in the candidate that they want to follow and not because the candidate seeks the position and is able to promote themselves. Candidates that are nominated accept out of duty for their country, not because of greed for wealth and power as we see now. I just want an America that is truly free and not shackled by politicians who are able to distort the truth so that they prosper and gain power that can and is used to opress those who elected them. I am a very optimistic person but I don't see this America ever coming to fruition. It's a pipe dream.

Wait? I thought the President said the War on Terror was over? BARNEYII said the President's policy in Afghanistan was about "accomplishing a mission."

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/19...

"Al-Qaida-linked militants claimed Friday that they were holding two American hostages and would exchange them for two people being held in the United States the blind sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, convicted in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and Aafie Siddiqque a 40-year-old Pakistani neuroscientist and mother of three, who was convicted of attacking U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan."

The left-wing faux news sites pulled a BARNEYII and ironically left this quote from Sec. of State Hillary Clinton in their "coverage" of the story.

"The perpetrators are the terrorists. They are the ones who have assaulted this facility, have taken hostage Algerians and others from around the world as they were going about their daily business," she said.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/01/19/clint...

You see, Barn, you always demand proof of your lies and misinformation and, like I said, the proof is in the reality that you deny and it's screeming in your posts.

If you realize that, do you really think that even half of the results are legit? Do you think the scientist don't want any more money for further studies? Do you think that doesn't factor into the final results given to the money donor who already has a preformed opinion and selected a group of scientists that said they believed the results would indeed line up with his/her preformed opinion? Not getting the results the money donor wanted would be the same as an employee failing at their job. They might not get to keep their job if the employer found out exactly how the employee failed so some employees decide to try to lie for the sake of keeping their job. Scientist are no different. I know liberals and the science community are close so this probably seems absurd to you.
I do not find that "absurd" at all, it is being motivated by greed, and greed is as old as time. The science community is no different from any other entity, they have some unethical personell.

Yes I do believe "even half of the results are legit". I also believe that there is people, Scientist included, that are not beyond perpetrating a scam for financial gain.

Do you really think those Scientists who habitually release incorrect studies will be hired for main stream research?

Would you hire someone with that reputation, probably not, unless you are running a scam.

What I do find "absurd" is that you stereotype the entire science community and other groups as well due to the actions of a few.

I simply realize that what we see happening around us doesn't, and hasn't for some time, match what we hear from the "in the know" communities such as government, science, and certianly media. Never more than today has the saying "believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see" been more true. What I hear comming down from Washington is that studies show this or studies show that so here is our newest and latest policy to fix it. What I see around me is a completely different scenario in which the enacting of the policy set to fix the problem only makes the problem worse and in most cases creates new problems. If you could cite me real world situations that you know and have seen for yourself right here where you live then we could have a serious debate about who is right and who is wrong. All you do is look at the CBO or one of your many left wing sites to get all of your information and you take it for the truth lock stock and barrell. You don't personally know one single person who's information you are taking as 100% correct. You simply regurgitate it and sit back proudly as if it came from your personal experience. Your exactly like that commercial where the woman tells the guy that "they can't put anything on the internet that isn't true". The guy asks "where did you hear that?". They simultaneously respond "On the internet" as her "French model" date she met on the internet who looks like anything but a model walks up and says "BONJOUR". The oblivious girl and her anything but a model date walk off to their night of bliss. You are that woman with your digitally set point of view and you will continually look out of touch until you decide to look around for yourself and see what's going on.

You have some serious comprehension issues, to the point that I believe you must have a learning disability

No, I demanded you provide proof for the misinformation you post religiously, or for you to prove me wrong, on what you refer to as lies, on what I posted.

The best I recall, you have NEVER ACCEPTED the invitation to prove me wrong, and IM still waiting. You can do it so you just attack the messenger.

"I thought the President said the War on Terror was over"

What in the Hell ever give you that idea.

Another thing, if the proof is in the reality that I deny, why does giving an example of that seem to escape you on a permanent bases.

How much research have you done on global warming, what is your credentials on global warning, Are you a PHD, an experienced scientist.

If you are none of those just how do know global warming is a hoax?

You spend way to much time, listing perceived problems, of those who do not tote the same line as you.

Have you ever stop to think you are not perfect, the world will still turn, if things are different from your ideal world.

What is good for you may be less advantageous for someone else.

That's why I said "I believe". This means what I am saying is from my perspective. It's not pushing it on anyone else or even asking others share my point of view. My point of view counts just as much as anyone elses point of view. If someone reads my posts and decides maybe they should stop and take a look around and form their own opinion the way I do then that's fine. If not, as you do, then that's fine too. I'm not trying to start a movement, I'm simply stating things from my perspective. I certainly don't think I am perfect. Far from it. I do notice that you are saying that someone such as myself doesn't fit into your "diverse" world, that I could be left behind if I don't change my way of thinking. Could you give me the liberal definition of diversity? I looked diversity up in the dictionary and I found this:
"The fact or quality of being diverse; difference.
A point or respect in which things differ.
Variety or multiformity"

Seems to me that I would fit that definition of diversity. That I would be included. Does the liberal definition mean that one has to be liberal to be diverse? If we are supposed to be diverse, why should I be left behind? Is the liberal diverse world smaller than other worlds where only a select few "diverse" individuals may enter. To be a part of such an accepting party you sure are exclusive. Maybe liberals are not what they seem on the surface. Surely not? Could that be?

Dear Abby,





My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit-card

bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he shouts at

me, saying I am stealing his money. He says pay the minimum and let our kids

worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up with the interest.

Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of

them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch, to whom he has

been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also,

he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next

with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he's with

Muslims.. Finally, the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be

in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath. It's just so

horribly creepy! Can you help?



Signed, Lost









Dear Lost,



Suck it up and stop whining, Michelle. You're getting to live in the White

House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for

you. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck

with the idiot for 4 more years.



Signed, Abby

Thank you for telling me about what the Head Start Program is. It wasn't necessary though, as I am fully aware of what it is.
Tell me, do you really think people need a government program to teach people how to raise their kids properly if they are poor? Is there a problem with the elderly people who grew up poor and never had this program at their disposal?
Do you cheer when you walk into a bathroom and see the poster on the wall that explains in detail the proper way to wash your hands, with a phone number to call at the bottom if you don't fully understand?
BTW, I hardly ever watch Fox News. I saw nothing on that channel about this program. I will always maintain the best upbringing any child can have is Mommy at home teaching and nurturing; not throwing kids at strangers for half a day.
If I had kids, they would have likely been homeschooled. Though I went to a public school, my Mom stayed home with her children throughout the years. We never went to any programs as babies and we turned out fine.
for single parents of low income paying jobs that work and would rather send their kid to an early educational program, than pay for a babysitter when they are of age, and are eligible is far better for the parent and childs life and alot better for the parents wallet. there are many improvements that need to be made not only to the headstart progra but to all entitlements to help keep them solvent and more efficient.

I live on a tight budget and must sacrifice because I can't spend money I don't yet have. I will NOT pay for someone else to be irresponsible when I am expected to be.
And I am against ANY politician who votes to raise the debt ceiling.
lol you truely don't understand do you? we are americans and we stick together. we elect representatives to speak for us. when we go to war we don't just put them on credit cards we help out by having the people do what they can here to support the war, but it seems that people like you and others have forgot this. the defense budget does not account for 2 expensive wars waged at one time. and what are they spending money on exactly? spending spending spending, but on what? and if you do not know what the debt ceiling is then do not say you will denounce any politician who votes for it. those bills were passed a year in advance that took spening that has to be paid at the end of the year. granted that laws should not be put on a credit card, but they have been for decades, and politicians have been finding ways to offset spending for decades. Until recently when you have back to back lame duck congresses who do not compromise but instead use fear mongoring tactics and stalemates along with talks of government shutdowns. Then again, these tactics have been used before , but with less cynicism, and not as much "scare". there are some that reside in the house of representatives that are far more out of their minds than gingrich and others that have tried BS like this before, gingrich even implied so himself!
