We will find out if we are better off, when war starts in the middle east and drags us into it. Just go ahead and put that spineless POS back in office and we are doomed.

"What a tragedy, to lose such wonderful people that have been so wonderful, and we appreciate their service for the country."

LMAOROTFu~! Blathering idiot, "wonderful, wonderful" channeling Lawrence Welk !! At least wrongney likes champagne dancers, from his "deferment" in France....




>“…wonderful people that have been so wonderful and appreciate their service for the country,”<<

Whenever Mitt tries to talk serious he sounds like he is giving away parting gifts.

He's got that memorized, from years of handing out pink slips.

Much better to have bushwhacker declare war, WITHOUT A REASON.... Seems like you forgot the success in Libya... But with Colonel Qaddafi joining the lengthening list of tyrants and terrorists dispatched during the Obama presidency, even critics conceded a success for Mr. Obama’s approach to war — one that relies on collective, rather than unilateral, action; on surgical strikes rather than massive troop deployments.

“I think the administration deserves great credit,” Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, said in an interview on CNN.“Obviously, I had different ideas on the tactical side, but the world is a better place.”

Nope.

You gave a proposal as proof of action.

No need to go after Romney for his religion. The right wingnut evangelicals already hate him. If democrats double down on Romney's religion they might change their minds.

I wonder if the Dems have been watching the news lately. Islamists feared us during Bush's Presidency. During Obama's Presidency that fear has gone away.

<quoted text>The reason I say Ron Paul's IQ is 150 or higher is if my IQ is almost 140 and I am not a economic expert like he is and I am not a Constitutional expert like he is, and when I read one of his books "End The Fed" it goes over my head in some parts, so that tells me he is around 150 or higher. He's also an M.D. So he's way up there. The other way you can tell is he cares about being honest and about the whole, he understands everyone has to be happy and functioning in order to not have civil unrest. He sees the big picture, so that's a smart, smart guy.
If you use logic like that, you most likely do not have an IQ of 140.

An individual with an average IQ can be a subject matter expert on economics or the Constitution.

The reason "End the Fed" goes over your head is because you are reading it as if it is supposed to make sense. While his "War on the Fed" makes good political fodder, sense he has gained a position that actually allows him to wage a War on the Fed he has not. That is because while it makes good political fodder, it really is a pretty stupid idea.

He has not reigned in the power of the Fed.
He has not started an audit of the Fed.
He has not tried to restructure the Fed.

This despite being on the Committee for Financial Services and Chairing the Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology.

Why?

No. You just missed the point that McGruff was making. He wasn't putting down education. His point was that, as valuable as an education is, it cannnot replace IQ.
How do you know that your posts are "always about 30-50 points higher than almost all the posts" on the internet? When you say that everyone in your city is smart and educated it shows an incredible lack of perception. The average IQ in your town is likely to be about 100.
Just because people disagree with you doesn't mean that they are stupid. Some might be. Some might be a lot smarter than you.
I suppose I might seem mean to you because I won't let you get away with accusing everyone who voices a different point of view of having a low IQ. That's just dumb. It strains the credibility of your claim of having a high IQ.
You are both or all three off your rockers. Neither IQ nor education are worth much without good judgement, problem solving ability and initiative. While education and IQ may help with these endeavors, they can not instill them. I have seen many very intilligent, well-educated people do some incredibly stupid things and make some really, really bad decisions.

I agree, make the Republican Party as small as possible.
