In looking over the last couple of pages of this thread, which started off about Bush, evolved into politics in general, and has apparently become about Catcher.
I have to wonder how someone who says so little can generate such a ferocious response.
Couldn't agree with this more. Especially the "says so little" part.

Postscript.
I neglected to say I don't buy products from or travel any longer to communist countries. My ethicial postion on that is non-negotiable, so sell your wares elsewhere.
Ive had to sell off investments in refineries, copper mines, pipeline companies and E&P companies because of those pesky Chinese buying in. Gotta give them credit, they spend their money wisely. Beats the heck out of investing in Solyndra, A123 systems, Fisker, or a $40,000 degree in liberation theology (pick your favorite flavor).

Better to say little and have people think you're a fool, than to rant away and dispel any doubt.

Ever see that National Geographic clip where a monkey lifts a rock to see what's underneath it? There's a big snake under it. The monkey screams and passes out cold. The cameras keep rolling, and after a couple minutes the monkey comes to. He dusts himself off, looks around, goes back to that same rock, lifts it again, screams and passes out again. Hilarious.

Fisker? A lib poster just told me last week it was all good as they took over the plant that once built Toyotas and some small G.M cars. Wonder how much of our money went up in smoke on that deal?

Any realistic answer as to what is going on would be met with jokes and allusions to 'tinfoil hat brigade' crap. The truth is staring us in the face, but nobody wants to see it.
Right now we have 'Homeland Security' and obamacare. Homeland security has effectively nullified most of the Bill Of Rights, and obamacare has put our healthcare in the hands of the government.
We are about one step away from having a government to being Ruled by the rich and powerful.
how big is that step?
I say we are already at that point. When friends of the dear leader can jet on down to Cuba for a party and gov hacks say its cool we are there. They have a flight now that leaves Tampa and lands in Cuba but for the reg people you have to prove you have a good reason to go.

Somewhere in Havana there are a couple of old-line Commies sipping Caf Cubano who (after waiting for the server to leave and carefully looking up down left right forward backward and under the table) are muttering about how in the old days they would have never let the Revolution be sullied by those Yankee entertainers.

and the beat goes on, yeah the beat goes on

it was Tesla, notFisker, that bought the Fremont, Ca. plant in conjunction with Toyota. They're still in operation.

Looked like a plain old sentence to me.

Here are two lessons for today, you confused little fruit loop.
Ready?

Lesson 1
Definition of RANT:

as a intransitive verb
1: to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner
2: to scold vehemently
as a transitive verb
: to utter in a bombastic declamatory fashion

Lesson 2
Quotes

"Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." Proverbs

"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt." Lincoln?

"Its better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt." Twain?

"It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt." Confucious?
========

Pick the one you like, but please do me a favor. The next time you take a stab at posting a fairly well known phrase to a group of fairly well read people, try to stick as close as you can to the original without the liberal twist. You have a habit of inserting the word "rant" when you're uncomfortable with the content of an opposing view and instead of addressing the content, you try instead to get them off the topic and off balance by pretending their delivery was a -----> rant.

Don't thank me. It was no trouble at all.
And to quote the spiritual poets in your life, Simon and Garfunkel, just think of me as your little bridge over troubled waters who's here to remind you that you are indeed a .....rock.

I enjoyed tofu prepared in various ways (the ma po tofu, a Shanghainese specialty, was delicious), as well as fish and shrimp (I am a pescetarian). But I did not and would not consume shark fins.
My reference to the will of the people was intended as criticism of Lyndi's call to sabotage the policies of the Obama administration. I am very aware of the financial plight of many of our people, and decry the attempts by the Republican party to neglect them in favor of the wealthy.
I had Tofu once, I doubt i would ever have the desire to try it again no matter how its prepared.

The sad part is they will always be neglected as long as people like you are dumb enough to think the Dems aren't doing the same damn thing..........

Dear Loquacious Lyndi,

Thanks for your warm missive. My reference to "rant" was to your lengthy post, not the little one you cited. The definition of the word fits your post to a T.

I'm disappointed that you continue to dodge my questions. You continue to drop in my estimation by demonstrating intellectual dishonesty. Shame on you.:(

Your very well educated pal,

Catcher

Hah! Condescending much?

ANY of us in opposition can be labeled ranting, for one reason or another, and that includes YOU Chaser.

BTW, yer d@mn lucky PRC authorities didn't find any reason to detain you and stick you with a spying charge. There's been a fair amount of that happening in those places.(Not that I care

Did you guys know that China has trade agreements with a dozen or more countries that don't require the american dollar? And that three of the countries are Russia, Japan, and Saudi Arabia?
I understand that it's working so well that other countries, including African nations we've been propping up for the last fifty years or so want in.
Anybody wanna guess what that is going to do to the value of the dollar?
