Does evidence matter to you at all? How many times have you used that term, and how many times have you seen us bitch or whine about it? I use the term myself.

You get your opinions about liberals not from observing us, but from people that understand that our ideas are antithetical to their dreams of owning everything.

Don't you think that you owe it to us and to yourself to do better than that?

why can't the mother use her income to buy her food? Why does she need the handout? Why should taxpayers be responsible for that mother's mistakes? This reminds me of this 19 year old girl at work. She just told me today that she's pregnant. She has no boyfriend, no husband. Got knocked up by a booty call. She works part time and lives at her mom's house. She's gonna be a single mother in nine months. And she can't support herself, let alone herself and a child. Guess who's gonna be footing the bill for her mistake? You got it, all taxpayers. Will you be championing her EBT card even though she lives at mommies house and her only expense is a cell phone bill?
And here it is again: The conservative message.

Did you take this attitude when Bristol Palin got "knocked up by a booty call"?

This is human nature. There are strong instincts and social pressures for girls to lie down, and not every 19 year old is mature enough, wise enough, or confident enough to come through that time of life without a baby.

All you see there is what the neoconservative think tanks want you to see: not another young girl in bad way that she really wasn't equipped to avoid, but a lazy, shiftless parasite that does nothing but f*ck and talk on her cell phone.

Republicans will call it Obamacare until it has proven successful. Then they will call it the Affordable Care Act.

Then they will take credit for it.

I was angry at Ford for the pardon he gave Nixon but looking back he did the right thing. A courageous act for the nation.
Really? Courageous?

We were told that we were too weary to go on and see justice done, and that it just needed to end. How weak would that be were it true - too tired for justice?

Sorry, but I prefer justice, especially in a case like that. What message did it send? I don't think Reagan had much reason to worry about any repercussions when he broke the law in a much bigger way. A similar message was sent when Oliver North was given immunity for what he had done. People should feel safe breaking the law in the White House or for it - unless they are named Clinton.

Letting Reagan walk was pretty much all Cheney and Bush needed to see to be even bolder. Likewise with their pardon of Libby, which sent the same message as the North thing.

Do you think that you would be pardoned for breaking the law? Probably not. Nor should you be. Nor should Nixon have been. How do you feel about the moral foundation of a legal system that applies only to some? Do you respect it? It seems you do.

Anyway, the cat is way out of the bag now in large part due to that first sin against the rule of law with Ford and Nixon, and presidents understand by a now firmly established precedent that they are above the law - conservative ones, anyway.

I used to like you. Do you remember in the fall of 1973, President Nixon was giving a speech and he said, "The future ruler of the world will have an X in the center of their name"? That is because 4 years earlier, the Messiah was "crucified" in a government (naval) hospital. Psalm 22 is very detailed and there were many witnesses. That is why Jesus said the end would come within a generation which is 40 years. 22:30 Don't call me a liar, you're only projecting.

I never heard of the rape case when [Bill Clinton] was Attorney General but I have no problem believing that his indiscretion goes waaaaay back.
And I can’t speak for Hillary, what she thought or her motive for staying with him. But you could be right. I just don’t know for sure. Most women would have dumped him.
Something we can agree is Bengasi Gate. Hillary nor our President caused this terrorist action. But in self serving interest they covered up the facts so as not to mar the election. I suspect Hillary was thinking about her future bid for President.
This whole incident following the death of the four Americans showed a lack of Leadership and self serving interest. A scandal swept under the rug by the left wing media. Just like when the ATF was buying assault weapons and giving them to Mexican Cartels.
President Obama doesn’t know everything but by George he could have fired some people over stupid decision to arm drug cartels. That included his Attorney General. Since he didn’t take action makes one wonder if he did know.
We haven’t even touched the sanctioned abuses of the IRS. I would say the Federal Government under the leadership of the President is out of control and no one is held accountable. Someone should have been prosecuted.
Now you want accountablilty? Why? What's difference between these issues and Watergate?

Don't need to hear the hypocrisy of the well off professors of secular humanism and anti-theists, or the condemnation of those well off who holler about free rides. That is reality. That could have been you. It has been going on forever. Liberals or no liberals. People will breed no matter what the circumstances are. That is a large part of the future. Whatcha gonna do about it but bitch and whine? It will take more than isms or half-assed laws to fix.
Do you see hope for people like that in America? I agree: that is America's future.

It's interesting that you lump liberals and progressives, who you call "hypocrites," in with the conservatives.

Liberals can't help that girl. We would if we could, but we can't - not given how so many Americans feel about people like her and about people like us, and not given the character, loyalties, and motivations of government representative.

If "tamales" is code for losing faith in one culture, and preferring to live in another with different weltanschauung, then yes.

Allow me:

Weltanschauung - a particular philosophy or view of life; the worldview of an individual or group.

You call him a great thinker - second only to yourself - except for his ability to think analytically. By that measure, a cat can be a great thinker.
Dave is very smart. But he is a socialist.

I didn't know that until now.

Socialism/Liberalism is a temperament that warps thinking.

Same for you.

Socialists like you and Dave can be intelligent, but you have some sort of meme that attacks your rational thinking centers.

I have studied it a good bit. But the explanation of the phenomenon is very elusive.
