<quoted text>No, you embecile. That poster has lost and replaced entire words with other words as when using "Construction" for "Constitution". Those kinds of substitutes are not typos, you clueless fringer lunatic. They connotes some kind of brain damage. Now, buzz off. You know you bore me to tears, and I am tired of repeatedly reminding you that I am NOT a socialist. I am a proponent of FREE MARKET CAPITALISM with a strong social welfare safety net in place. I'm adamantly opposed to crony capitalism that restricts free market entry and keeps the money in the hands of the same folks year after year, decade by decade. One of the hallmarks of a free market capitalist system is that MONEY CHANGES HANDS. When that no longer happens, and you have the kind of inequity we see in America today, it's long overdue that we start raising holy hell about it and taking some steps to correct this kind of alarming imbalance that is absolutely destroying the potential for the American dream for our children and theirs to come.
Do you "get it" now, or must I keep repeating myself as to what we should expect and how I'm much more committed to America as a land of opportunity than you have EVERY understood or want to understand? FKQ2, you idiot. I don't have time to be polite with your stupid azz.
That would be imbecile by the way .... Kettle

Your arrogance is unfounded as you sound as unhinged as the poster your accusing.

We have all heard your rhetoric before but the fact of the matter is .... your hand is consistently out. You claim you are for free market capitalism but you deride the rich for their success, believe that the successful have an obligation to the less or unsuccessful in this country, and your claims of a social safety net is just liberal code for WELFARE.

Keep your hand out SOCIALIST!

BTW I don't believe that I have ever seen you post politely to anyone with an opposing view. This would also be just more of your psychosis. Instead of instructing others to seek help, you may want to heed your own advice.

The Constitution doesn't say anything about a lot of things that your party holds dear. It also states that citizens have the right to the blessings of liberty. Nope, not a thing about fetuses.
The Constitution also doesn't mention prayer in school but conveniently, your party believes that the Founding Fathers only wanted freedom from religion to pertain to themselves, not others.
Let me know when you want to begin therapy. I will need to arrange payment to your analyst. Choose a psychiatrist. They can prescribe drugs to quell your hallucinations and insecurity issues.
The grammar and spelling police are on my tail. Chauncey is on the job, and protecting the topix world from typo's, errant verbs and the misplaced participle.

And this has what to do with your assertion that the Constitution entitles people to the American Dream.

Your attempt to change the subject is flimsy at best. Still waiting for your proof the the Constitution "entitles" people to the "American Dream" (the term wasn't even coined until the 1930's).

Keep with correcting typo's it appears it is what you do best. Are you sure that your not a secretary like NTR,.... Or maybe you are NTR. HAHAHAHAHAHA

LOL your naïve comprehension of reality is well observed not only on this thread but through out the growing majority of the populace. All of those that hold themselves to this dysfunctional ideology of yours, is being swept away with yesteryears dust.. Here is ANOTHER example, with facts rather than the comic book blah, blah. Of your propaganda.

The Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe.

Norman Ornstein and Tom Mann, scholars at the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution respectively, put it all in a book, for those with intellectual interest in politics. Title of the book is Its Even Worse Than It Looks”:” How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism”. They went further with an essay written for the Washington Post, titled “Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.”
How far have the republicans sunk into the quagmire, you may wonder. Survey political strategist, lobbyist, pollsters and think tanks. Here is one; Chairman of Barbour Griffith & Rogers; Ed Rogers. Formerly the top aid to G.W. Bush and Reagan puts in simple terms.“The G.O.P. House has between 20 and 30 members who are ideological purists who think every issue and vote is black or white. Combine that with the members who fear a primary from the right, and you have maybe 60 votes that are hard to get. We have lost the art of governing in Washington. In the Congress no one is able to make and execute long-term plans.”

I have the words you are looking for, it is in the 1776 Declaration of Independence. Goes something like this;
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” and “The Pursuit Of Happiness”
Now with a little bit of intellect you will notice “From The Consent Of The Governed”” and “The Pursuit Of Happiness”

One of the Cornerstone’s for the Constitution which will materialize much later, after the martyrs for liberty have shed their blood.
Are you as naïve as you are projecting or are you playing some callow game of the devil’s advocate?”OR” Semantics to take quite literally. Which is no more than a callow aversion to the issues presented. Similar to right wing nuts insidious ideologue.

You are guaranteed the "pursuit of" happiness. You are not guaranteed actual happiness. Much as Chauncey it appears that you believe the guarantee to pursue something means that you are entitled to it. You are wrong.

Storm Warning was not taken seriously when the Bushwhacking roller coaster crashed . It was called the “Perfect Storm”
The storm arrived in February 2008.
Fannie Mae reports a $ 3.55 billion loss for the fourth quarter of 2007.
Collapsing in March 2008 Bear Sterns accepts buy out by J.P. Morgan Chase. Feds put up $30 billion loan for the purchase.
Carlyle Group defaults on a $16.6 billion debt.
Feds free up $200 billion to support Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
April; International Monetary Fund projects a $945 billion loss from the finical crises. G-7 finance minister agrees to institute a new finical regulations.
June; Repossession of home mortgages doubles and accelerating. Hundreds, including 2 Bear Sterns managers are charged with fraud in the subprime mortgage market.
July; Oil hits all time high of $145 per barrel. Gas at $4 a gallon.
Mortgage lender IndyMac collapses. Freddie Mac and Fannie May spiraling down. Bush announces not to worry, have faith.. Feds guarantee the debts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
U.S. Secretary of The Treasury Hank Paulson quote “ The global economy is more sound; it is as strong as I’ve seen it in my business career”
September; U.S. Government seizes control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
On the 17th second oldest investment bank, Lehman Brothers declares bankruptcy. Merrill Lynch is bought out by Bank Of America. Feds bail out AIG Insurance for $85billion
White House through Hank Paulson request $700 billion {no strings attached} bailout plan, for banks and free up some credit.
Last two standing investment banks, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are forced to convert to holding companies. This allows them to have direct access to Feds discount window for loans.
September 26; Feds seizes Washington Mutual in America’s largest ever U.S. Bank failure.
September 29; Republican led House rejects presidents Bush’s request of $700 billion bailout.
Wachovia Bank collapsing; negotiations with Citigroup for take over.
Bailout clears the House of Representatives and Bush immediately signs into law.
October 6 to the 10th; Dow drops a record 2,031 points. Weekly loss of 19.67%!
November 4,2008 Obama elected as the economy shrinks by 9% to become the Great Recession. Only the Great Depression was greater in all of U.S. History.
Consider when Bush entered the White House with a budget surplus, a prosperous economy, and a strong middle class. Eight years later leaves the economy, stock markets and the budget, in utter chaos !
Presidential ranking puts Bush slightly ahead of Herbert Hoover. Which is the lowest end of the ranking system.
Now what just more blah, blah with NO Substance or Facts. Which makes you nothing more than a mere Projectionist of your self.

Lol clown...
Theirs no Clowning around with serious numbers. Which is to say , as elections’ result of 2012 have indicated, majority of 53% opposed the Right Wing Clowns comedy antics with only 47% remaining arrested in their callow Peter Pan fantasies. Numbers are used to expose the truths of the universe unlike the simpleton’s derogatory blah, blah of no substance or facts from the Ideologue Right Wing.
Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

A majority of Red States have that entitlement mentality [food stamp dependent] and take in more tax dollars than what they put in. They feed off Blue States the most. Ironically, they're the first ones who demand smaller gov't and less mooching.

Funny that people like you are so in the dark on this issue.
