I will personally stop blaming George Bush for the debacle in Iraq when he stands up and admits culpability and takes his punishment like a man. Death would be appropriate I think but I'm no lawyer. I'm ready when he is. Until then it's all his fault.

Um, no, old fellow, that wasn't really a question. Oh dear, you still don't understand do you? You.. um... have to adress the original irony, dear, and you have no idea what I'm talking about, do you? Y-ess I see it now; you're just stupid aren't you?(I already knew that already actually.)
I don't think you were smart enough to be ironic, even unintentionally.

So, say you have a leader and you're a lemming. And this leader, well, he leads you off a cliff without going over himself. Do you then subsidize his retirement?

Correct. Lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and rakes as well. Fine workers.
Guest worker programs are the way to go.
I'm all for it. Issue 'em a photo ID at the border for $50 that's good for 30 days renewable at any post office or port of entry for $50. Half a billion a month in guest worker permit fees.

So, you are for no restrictions.
The Second Amendment speaks for itself. The Connecticut assault weapons law was worthless in protecting children placed in a purposely vulnerable environment. Government screws up everything that it touches.

Here is an anecdotal example of the result of surrendering your rights to the police state for a supposed good cause, namely preventing drunk driving.

Police in Lake Elsinore (hometown of Ghost?) conducted a DUI checkpoint on Friday night.

A total of 999 vehicles passed through the checkpoint.

Of those, 23 vehicles were diverted to a secondary screening area.

Of those, two (2) people were given field sobriety tests and one was arrested for driving under the influence.

However, 66 unlicensed or suspended drivers received citations and four vehicles were impounded.

So, a bunch of people were cited for reasons unrelated to the reason for stopping all drivers.

Your papers please?

Also makes you wonder if cops have a clue about who is drinking.

Believe that there are a significant number of members within the current Republican House who would be willing to make the cuts necessary to balance the budget. That would of necessity include cuts in entitlements.
I'm sure you do, I don't. I see the Tea Party House doing nothing but increasing spending during their two year tenure.

Yeah, but her act was a free soft porn show, so not all bad.

Actually, let me respond to that in a serious manner. Such issues should be left to family and friends of the mentally ill, not to the government. As to felons, they should not be released from prison if they present any danger of violence. Felony tax evaders certainly should not lose their right to bear arms.
I'm with ya, I don't see many brown people going up for tax evasion.

Tax evaders were just an example. Felony pot smokers should also not lose their right to bear arms.

Paul Ryan attempted to address entitlements, whether you agree with the specifics or not, and was beaten down for his efforts.

Oh plenty of Afghan children died. We're very thorough, we cover all the bases. It comes with the bravery of being out of range.

Whatever you want to call it, they were clearly happy the guy was dead.
It was cheering.
I didn't see happy faces, you're deranged politicizing the death of one of our own 'cause you hate a black man.

I know cheering when I see cheering. When I watched the video, no one else was there to tell me anything.
Bullshlit, you didn't come upon that video on your own, you were led there by your handlers. Somebody sent a link in an email or it was embedded in an article on The Blaze ... you're not fooling anyone.

You don't have to. I told you first.
Always been my personal joke: "I have a B.S. in education...literally."
A liberal college pumping out little liberal teachers. No wonder. I was one of the few exceptions - why I always felt like a salmon swimming upstream in a liberally dominated school system.
Some of the more liberal teachers I worked with used to say "if it makes sense, you won't find it in the public school system," and they'd say "if you care, you won't last".
And these were liberal teachers.
Sure you did. Too bad you couldn't stick it out, now you'd be lookin' at a fat pension.

Oh well.
