Then as a Republican you're a self loathing Jew.
Republicans have no other interest than to redistribute wealth from the bottom, up, taxing the working class to death while gifting tax breaks to the already wealthy.
They worship the greed of Wall Street, and have nothing but contempt for the liberal voting majority in America.
Yes, the policies of the Republican Fascist Reich are destroying this nation, as evidenced by 30 years of failed Reagan/Tush "trickle down" economic policy, the Republican caused 2008 financial collapse, and so much more.
We are a socialist nation, have been since 1913, and Republicans use smoke and mirrors to deflect this fact from the populace, while at the same time ripping off the public trust any time they are in power.
You know what? I love who I am, I love my religion. I'm not self loathing. I just simply support logic over socialism. I'm sorry, but it was REAGAN who FIXED CARTER'S mess.(Remember the savings and loan crash? That was Carter). You goy ass-wipe, you seek to destroy this country. Well guess what? It won't happen while this "Self Loathing Jew" refuses to let you set the bar for the "American Idiot Stereotype"

Good for you!

You're proof that denial isn't just a river in Egypt.

The Savings and Loan scandal was the Bush Crime Family's and Reagan's disaster, guess you forgot the "Keating Five" including your goy warlord John McShame. Marvin and Neal Tush were involved heavily in this, but don't let facts get in the way of a good smear.

Reagan raised taxes 11 times, cut and ran in Lebanon, and gave amnesty to illegals.

Obama is to the RIGHT of Reagan, and sadly for us is a Republican.

At least you have a choice this election, we only have Obama and his hard right policies to vote for, so in reality, no choices.

FYI, I serve my neigbors as a shabbos goy during sabbath, and am often welcomed as a guest during the high holy days, so don't presume, you nutter.

I'll presume all I want if you choose to call me a "Self Loathing Jew." You realize that's very condescending, right? That's asking for an argument. No, Reagan had to rescue the US from Carter's poor pathetic excuse of a presidency. It's called a ripple effect, and it's exactly what Carter had on the savings and loan market.

I'd be willing to bet you haven't the slightest idea how an economy is run. If you would have only paid attention in high school economics you'd see the blatant fallacies of your loony left policies. A welfare state is what you support, and little do you seem to understand, that welfare states collapse very quickly. The result is cataclysmic. Vote Obama, and you vote for the quick collapse of this nation. It will be because of imbeciles like you, liberals on false high horses, that this country will ultimately falter. For the sake of our country, and the future generations, please don't have children.

Oh and by the way, you're *still* a anti-semitic goy ass wipe, you "fascist." See? You don't like blatant insults, do you? One more thing, "Denial?" That is the lamest thing I've heard in a while. Get lost, go read that high school macroeconomics book you've neglected for way too long. Learn how this country *needs* to operate to survive, you'll find sub-par liberals like you have it all backwards.

Looks like my comment got under your skin- perhaps beacuse there's more truth to it than fiction?

Oh, and your lamentable attempt at turning my own words back on me caused laughter, not anger, not angst, nothing more than your pathetic attempt at humor.

"Fascism" as the world knows is a wholly right wing ideology, as I've proven ad nauseum in many links in past posts, so we're not going to revisit that truth here.

Reagan did nothing of the sort- he traded arms for hostages, gave amnesty to illegals, cut and ran in Lebanaon, and raised taxes ELEVEN TIMES.

Now chew on that truth for a while and get back to us when you've learned something.

He was a lousy president- he was handled by Don Regan from day one, and was already suffering from dementia as early as when I met him in 1983. He had no idea where he was when I asked him if he was enjoying his visit.

LOL!!

The Savings and Loan scandal was a Bush Crime Family construct with a complicit Reagan White House. Period. All the info's out there, including the "KEATING FIVE" scandal which McShame was one of the ringleaders. I capitalized this beacuse you seem to have missed it in my last post.

LOL

The wealthy elites of the Fascist Reich have enriched themselves by redistributing wealth from the bottom up since time began. And now the full bore frontal attack on the working class is at critical mass, and trust me, the 308 million in the 99% will win by sheer numbers alone.

You cannot be a George Tush and govern as if you have a mandate when the nation is center left- one big reason why his presidency failed on all levels- greed, hubris, and rank fascism.

Calling me a self-loathing jew? That's antisemitism as far as I'm concerned, young man. That'll get under anyone's skin, that's just a dirty insult, you stupid goy. And you're right, I am frustrated, to see ignorance so deeply embedded in the society of the left. Sadly enough, those who claim they represent the "99%" are liars. There are a lot of good, hard working men and women who go to work each day and earn an honest living. I know this because I'm an engineer, I'm not paid a CEO check. But you know what? I'm not a welfare leech, and I'll always be proud of that. That's what your OWS protesters are, leeches and scum who want free money from the backs of all the tax payers.

I can't instill logic, nor common sense in you. You are indeed a hopeless drone, again spewing liberal theory that's got as much credibility as Obama's promises, NOTHING, total dogshit. If you wish to attach Don to Ronald, then I'm attaching George Soros to Obama. Your loony democrat of a president is a puppet of a billionaire. How sad is that? To know that your president is the epitome of a lie, whose motives are nothing more than the demands of his controllers? To know that the man you were dumb enough to vote for wanted "change" and wanted to help the lower class, and now's he's a slave of a billionaire, willingly.

If you've chosen to ignore my rebuttal, then I'll sum up my demand : Get a job. Pay taxes like the rest of us. You'll find there the reason to become a Republican. It's hard watching my tax dollars go to welfare suckers and food stamp abusers. You simply want a president who will give you anything you want just to get your vote. Not what's good for the country, hell no Obama won't do that, just what sounds good enough to get him elected.

I know plenty of Jews who use the term "self loathing Jew" to describe others, so it's not "anti-semitic" as you suggest, you just choose to make it such to defend your indefensible position on what your posts read like.

As a cheerleader for corporate fascism, your party is in it's death knell, and is gasping for air as we speak.

The schism in your ranks is a permanent change- look no further than your co-opted speaker, Boner Boy, and his capitulation to the loud and obnoxious Fascist Reich Fleagaggers he's a slave to.

Your lie about the OWS is laughable, since they are largely liberal activists, employed, and represent those who have fallen through the cracks of 30 years of failed supply side Reaganomics.

The Republican caused financial collapse in 2008 which we are all still digging out of was a culmination of events leading up to it, all based in failed Friedmanesque phony "trickle down" theory- now a proven failure since it's been tried, sadly.

Obama is not MY president.

Since you're most likely new around here, I have stated since DAY ONE that he was never my candidate. I preferred Dennis Kucinich or Bernie Sanders (who wasn't running) and am far to the left of the conservative Obama.

Another thing- the Reich has yet to prove ONE Obama created initiative or passed law that is blatantly "liberal" in it's construct.

He has, as you assert, been co-opted by the wealthy Reich elities on Wall Street, and does not serve our interests as the liberal voting majority in America.

"Attaching" Don to Ronald? LOL!!!

Which nation are you living in?

Don Regan was Reagan's chief of staff, and former CEO of Merrill Lynch, and still maintained ties to the corrupt company he headed- he steered the Milton Friedman/Alan Greenspan economic theory and was the one who "handled" Reagan- we have VIDEO tape with AUDIO showing Don Regan cutting Reagan off during public speeches and pushing paper in front of him when changing gears in mid speech.

He was present when I met Reagan in 1983, and was the one who whisked him offstage after showing us all he had no idea where he was.

LOL!!!

But you'll keep living in the land of denial, no doubt.

We alraeady are in a degrading of our R & D and are falling behind in this category of manufacturing, developement,inthe last 8 to 10 years we have lost about 8 million jobs. Even the investments have gone offshore by the billions of dollars--IBM is spennding billions of dolars in India to expand there.In 1990 we had 30 percent of the global market. Today that has dropped to around 6 to 8 percent-----theere go the jobs as the off shoring has taken more jobs. Even our manufacturing of TV picture tubes has gone off shore--we no longer manufacture them in the U.S. Even technology has been effecting our defence manufacturingas we are losing out in the semiconductor chip industry as due to offshoring. So we as of this time are depending more and more on foreign countries for our needs in manufacturing from clothes to electronics---we no longer manufacture our needs at home. A QUESTION HAH, WHY HAS NO ONE BEEN LOOKING OUT FOR OUR FUTURE IN OUR NEEDS IN THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENTS AND THE OFF SHORING OF OUR VITAL INDUSTRIES NEEDED IN OUR dod
