Nonsense

January 28, 2013

What is this nonsense about "American Democracy"? No, our intended form of government is a confederacy, not a republic, not a democracy....

With the economy now racing along at -0.1%, paid White House liar Jay Carney said, "Our economy is facing a major headwind, and that's Republicans in Congress."

Drink!

Oh, so you are in fact the Wayne I used to work with. The guy who used to come to work bragging to his coworkers with sick stories about his stepdaughter. How strange that you would appoint yourself the moral arbiter of the world.

Your posts and bizarre indecipherable ramblings remind me a great deal of someone that used to post here a lot.

Not at all bizarre nor undecipherable, Christopher Hughes. Yes, I posted as valves, so what? I did things, said things as valves that I never would have done or said as myself. I felt anonymous. Valves was an alter-ego. As valves, I never would have confronted you as who you are. Now I'm free to do just that. I've seen several instances where you've posted as yourself, so I knew you posted here. You just didn't post often enough as yourself to convince me that big-mouthed Christopher Hughes could show such restraint as to not try to assert his intellectual vapidity as brilliance more often. I had thought and hoped that in time you'd grow up. More than twenty-five years didn't help. You're still the twit whose greatest consistency is his inconsistency.

" Do you still wish to debate who's despicable, buddy?"

First of all "buddy", really?

Second of all, there's no need at all to debate. And apparently David Frum, Joe Scarborough, Chris Christie, and Republican consultant John Weaver all agree with me, as well as 75 or 80 percent of the American public.

Shut up, butt! I never referred to my father as one who would have sex with a pig. I never broke a law, got caught by the authorities and blamed it on the authorities. I never had my license suspended for drunk driving, depended on my father to drive me to and from work every day, only to continue to demean and belittle him. I didn't call a career military person, especially a relative, a "war monger". Do you still wish to debate who's despicable, buddy?

"So some who had been historically conservative make a poor assessment"

Historically conservative? Don't you mean PRESENTLY conservative? Weren't there a bunch of knuckle draggers like you that wanted Christie to run for President in the 2012 election? A guy who is currently a GOP consultant, is "historically conservative"?

The whole world is wrong, and only little old you is right? Give me a break. You are despicable.

OK, I'll deride Mallo Cups, and that will be defaming marshmallows. Just because a person, in this case Obama-lama-ding-dong, is a hypocrite (as are most specimens of the liberal persuasion), and that hypocrisy is pointed out, rodents such as yourself, flee to whatever hypocritical haven is the nearest and least relevant. So some who had been historically conservative make a poor assessment, doesn't make your hypocrisy less!!

"they can't dazzle anybody with their brilliance, they always turn to trying to baffle with that bovine excrement"

Would a perfect example of this be your letter recently where you claimed that crime was reduced in a GA town because they passed a law ordering people to buy guns? This even in the face of the fact that gun ownership in the town isn't higher than the national average, and local law enforcement OPENLY says the law doesn't have anything to do with their crime rate? THAT kind of "pig excrement" you mean?

"I suppose you also believe that to make the observation that the Obama children have armed guards is somehow exploiting the children, since you have made that assertion."

So you're asking if I agree with conservative David Frum who said:

"The NRA's Sneering References To The President's Family Are Beyond The Pale."

and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough, who said regarding the ad:

"This Extremism Is So Frightening And Just, Over, Over, Over The Line."

and Republican Governor, and conservative darling Chris Christie, who said the ad was "reprehensible",

and Republican consultant John Weaver, who called the ad "Deranged," "Over-The-Top, and "Out-Of-Touch"?

Yep, I do.

"You actually seem to believe that those liberal who have guns have them only because they want them!"

Yep, some people actually have enough common sense, to only go out and purchase items that they want. You find that extraordinary?

You must be very short on facts, Hayes, to be referrencing your OWN post, an obvious opinion, as a quotable fact. That's desperation, sir. But I also know that you truly lack intelligence, so what more can any of us expect? You actually seem to believe that those liberal who have guns have them only because they want them! What a super long stretch! I suppose you also believe that to make the observation that the Obama children have armed guards is somehow exploiting the children, since you have made that assertion. I've known people like you all my life, and they're all bluff, bluster and bovine excrement. Since they can't dazzle anybody with their brilliance, they always turn to trying to baffle with that bovine excrement.

" trying to push a plan that would have had Romney winning the election by as many as 28 electoral votes, even though he had over 5 million LESS votes cast for him than the winner."

It's worth noting that a Republican in one state (I think it was VA), said he wanted to do this to "ensure all voices were heard". IOW, he advocated a law that would have ensured that the guy who lost the recent Presidential election by over 5 million votes, would have actually won the election. Ensure voices are heard? And isn't this being brought to us by the same party that's been screaming "election integrity" for the past couple years?

The great news is the only reason they're considering this is they see the coming shortage of angry white males, which are the fuel that runs the Republican party, and know the end is near for them.

""Mr. Knapp is un-American he hates the United States of America."

Good post, troll. Thank God you're afraid of guns."

Couple points. If someone is against our government "by, of, and for the people", they really are, by definition anti-American.

Second point, liberals aren't typically "afraid" of guns." People that are "afraid of guns" by lots and lots of guns because they're terrified by the fact that other people have guns, and may be coming to try and kill them. Lots of liberals have guns, the big difference being, they don't NEED guns. I actually understand, that my guns introduce an element of risk, rather than safety, to my home environment.

There seems to be this BIZARRE trend in the right wing the last couple years, where they almost openly say that actual people shouldn't be involved in electing our government "by, of, and for the people".

It all starts with anti-democratic chatter, then they try and steal elections all over the country by trying to make it as inconvenient as possible to perform their vital civic duty and vote. Then they fast forward to trying to push a plan that would have had Romney winning the election by as many as 28 electoral votes, even though he had over 5 million LESS votes cast for him than the winner.

I would say to the right, if you don't think we should have a participatory form of govt, great, then don't vote. Nobody's forcing you. Just sit out the next 10 or 12 election cycles, America will be MUCH better off than it is now, then you might have an easier time making your case.

Many issues would be better dealt with if the states could try different approaches to them instead of the elitists of the federal government applying a single “solution.”

It is not a true republic form of govenment as it is not a true democracy nor a true confederacy.
