I think being a compulsive liar is a little more shrink worthy than the fact that I busted you at it. Now will your insurance pay for that or will you be leaning on one of those "Socialist" programs to pay your bills?
You are an interesting character.
You have about 4 'points' that you put into rotation in your posts.
Someone is a liar, or a racist, or you 'busted them' or they are a Tea Bagger.
Can you come up with anything of substance?
Here you suggest that I am leaning on 'Socialist' programs & in post #20726, Old Guy seems to think that I am dogging the programs. Interesting....

<quoted text>This may surprise you but I agree to the need & benefit of ALL of these programs. I didn't once say that I was against any of them. It is the government wasteful & inefficient control such as the commonly known fact that I.O.U.'s literally exist for money borrowed from the SS fund to 'balance' the budget in the past & it's still growing on steroids. Then appropriate 'cost of living adjustments' are reduced in subsequent years.
We all also know that IF all of what we, as individuals, invested our life time 'contributions', that we could retire with greater amounts.
I find it difficult to trust the many representatives that exempt themselves from Affordable Health Care, Social Security, & more.
The programs themselves are fine, it's the administration there-of that bothers me greatly.
These programs are not fine because they are administered by our federal government. Retirement plans, healthcare plans, poverty plans are not what the federal government is supposed to do. States doing these kinds of things? Different story. Any state is allowed (if permissible by their state Constitution) to provide any kind of benevolence they desire.

Well..... we have all these wonderful safety nets now, and what do we have to show for it? Serious debt, less responsible people, and obligation that we can't afford.

The fix? Some say make people work later and not retire until the age of 67 or more. This brilliant idea is usually promoted by suit and ties sitting behind a microphone at a radio station or in front of a television camera.

The problem is that some jobs can't be worked safely up to that age. Are we to expect roofers to carry shingles two or more stories high up a ladder at that age? What about bricklayers? How about laborers that have to carry that cement, bricks and blocks to the work site? The older you get, the tougher it is to take those heavy garbage cans to the curb. Imagine emptying those garbage cans into a garbage truck for a living at the age of 66.

Heck, I'll even use my career as an example. Do you want to be in the car in front of me when I'm piloting a 70,000 lbs tractor-tralier in the rain or snow at the age of 67 and we come to a sudden stop?

You really should read up a little more. considering you started with George Mason being a symbol for all you stand for as a "Constitutionalist". He's the slave owner who refused to sign the Constitution.(insert silly spring noise sound effect here-
B-o-o-I-I-I-I-I-n-g)

I'm sure he pictured 16 year old urban youth owning AK-47s with 50 round clips when he made this statement though...right?

Also, none of the people you named here mention their vision of our country turning into an evil Socialist tyranny.

You know, like how you and Timothy McVeigh do.

Now let's move on to Noah Webster. Another person you listed as a shining example of what you stand for. He was a Federalist who loved big banks, big government and keeping strong ties to Great Britain.

That is the opposite of what you and the Tea Party hero, Timothy McVeigh believe in. So...

You really believe that our founders had no vision of advanced weaponry in the future? They thought that muskets and single action revolvers would be the apex of our creation?

And here we once again have that worn out liberal "They owned slaves" routine that you think somehow discounts or eliminates any credibility our founders had.

They also didn't know we were going to have the "A" bomb or jet planes. So what does that have to do with the price of milk?

I have a lot of younger friends that would love to have a "defined benefit" retirement plan, instead of their "defined contribution" plans (where they get to invest the money, and hope for the best.) The stock market has long flat spells. If your timing is bad, your retirement nest egg is toast. Same for other investments.

Your facts are wrong. Congress and their staff are all included in Obamacare (thanks to the Grassley amendment.) And all federal workers hired since 1984 are covered by (and contribute to) Social Security.

Informative. I ck printed news, TV/radio news & obviously internet news but some how missed that.
Now they need the same pension plans.
I still am the biggest cynic about trusting them to run a bath.
What about the Brent Spence bridge? Now it is supposedly an 'earmark' to use tax dollars to build a new bridge! What the bleep are highway & fuel taxes for? Building rabbit cages? Something is messed up. The bridge used to have a break down lane but they converted it for traffic in the 70's.

Not too much different here. Our main artery going into downtown Cleveland is a bridge that is so bad trucks have to detour to get into or across town. The bridge isn't strong enough to safely allow trucks to cross and the detour sucks in rush hour traffic.

We didn't get much help from the feds and it's a good thing we have Kasich as a Governor who managed to find a way to fund the new bridge project.

. They have spent the highway and fuel taxes on their wants- maybe even embezzled ! This is what the political welfare system we have evolved to consist of! The only fools are the voters and taxpayers who continue to accept this!

Our founders were having prophesies of tomahawk missiles and stealth bombers...coo coo, coo coo. You sound like a raving lunatic. One who once again is trying to make up stuff that someone else said. Go ahead a show me where I stated the fathers of our country were invalid. Go play slap and tickle games with Pops, you festering lie machine. I have no time for Timothy McVeigh wanna be's.

And yet everyone's life is exactly the same, for the last 20 or so years, no matter how many time Sarah Palin told your corporate fetch boy @ss that the sky is falling. The only real difference is we were making about 10K more a year under Bill Clinton. Eat those facts you Tea Bagger emailed newsletter.

You don't, huh? Then I guess you now support the Iraq war.

if you were not implying that our founders were invalid, why did you bring up slavery? What did slavery have to do with their stance on firearms? I didn't bring up slavery.

Of course It would seem that our founders could not have imagined precisely what changes would come about in their futures, but they certainly KNEW that things would NOT remain the same since they were clearly aware that at one time there was no steam engines, firearms, cannons etc. And B4 that there were catapaults, simple bows, cross bows, steel, bronze, stone tipped arrows & spears, B4 that clubs & sling shots etc.
So I agree with you.
They had no crystal ball just as we don't. But we already envision lasers, rail guns, pulse weapons & more.
that is an angle that the narrow sighted don't see or they refuse to see.
As far as your slavery question, that's just Canton when he can't stay on subject.

It's what liberals do: try to invalidate proof.

If our founders feared (as Canton puts it) 16y year olds with assault rifles, they would have limited our ability to protect ourselves by listing the primitive weapons they had at the time. Of course they knew that our weaponry would advance, but they didn't want those advancements available to rogue governments or criminals and not the law abiding citizen.

If we look at our mass murders in this country including the latest Naval episode, the one common element is that most took place in gun-free zones. So far under this administration, we've had two mass attacks on military instillations. How many attacks on military instillations did we have before Clinton disarmed military personnel in these places?

Liberals just don't get it. Whether we look at isolated instances where guns are not allowed or entire states or cities that just about prohibit guns such as NYC and Chicago, we find that gun-free zones are a problem. So what's the liberal solution? Make everyplace a gun-free zone. That's just how liberals think.

My point is why are you referencing quotes from centuries ago to address a modern issue. To suggest that any of the founder's of this country could foresee the direction our country has taken would be to imply they had the ability to see the future. How's come I only have to take quotes from as far back as the 90's to find a lunatic that believes exactly what you believe, and you have to dig up people like Noah Webster to justify your point? I stated that you guys follow the EXACT same views as child murderer and terrorist Timothy McVeigh.

Here's a quote from Tea Party darling, Ann Coulter.

"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

Go ahead and post the quote where I stated that our founder's feared 16 year olds with assault rifles. Unless of course this is just another sneaky, scumbag rightwinger lie...again. Go ahead and post that link where I stated that our founder's were afraid of 16 year olds with AK47's. Funny how all I have to do is to post documented facts. All you guys can come up with is to lie about something anyone could see is false. The days of you guys being able to lie and never be held accountable have been shut down by the easily accessed information of the internet.(Also see the end of the GOP)
