Now I'm as mistrustful of politicians as the next reasonable person, but nothing you have provided...nothing...provides even the slightest HINT at your "truth" that the is some mass global conspiracy that will result in the enslavement of the human race (by lizard people?).

Your concept of "Enslavement", if and when it occurs, occurs on an individual level, and only exists if you allow it to. People become slaves to their pocketbooks, the want for more stuff, the need to be better than their neighbor. It causes irrationality, fear, suspicion. It is a far more dangerous form of "Enslavement" than you, or any of your peers can come up with, and worse...it's real.
You can't defend your position you are asleep you have no position.

Lies from a democrat taste much sweeter than from a republican.

There is the possibility this is way more than a screw up.

Tenet ****ed up and let a war happen. Bush gave him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Bremer ****ed up as American proconsul in Iraq. Bush gave him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Republicans reward the most colossal ****ups with medals.

If you can show me where I've done that then you might have a point. And the comparisons to Bush aren't necessarily "deflections". They're more comparisons. Some of you guys seem to be okay with the far, far worse sin of the Bush administration. While troubling and unfortunate, this really isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. Your outrage is a bit hypocritical.

Lets assume I'm the worst person in the world...a liberal in-the-flesh hybrid of Dr. No, Joseph Stalin and King Herod.

How does pointing out my perceived, yet untrue, hypocrisy absolve you of your own?

Contrary to your claim, I have been quite vocal about my views on all wars. I have admitted plenty of times on this forum that, despite the majority of my family being in the military, I am for all intents and purposes a pacifist, and have endured the requisite criticisms from your ilk, including being called a p***Y and a coward. It is neither cowardly nor the sign of a weaker person to speak out against war. Being complicit, on the other hand...
So even your own brother doesn't like you. I have a great relationship with my family. Not having a good relationship with your family explains a lot about you.

OUTRAGE! we are upset because our govt blamed us for the attacks. They blamed a stupid video and the fact Americans are not politically and religiously correct. Thats what they basically said. That video was wrong and look what happened because of it. Its such a spewing of **** that it's hard to believe it was our sec of state saying it.

And you people want her to be President? She is ****ing done. She will never be President.

You think some liberal won't use all this against her in a primary? She won't even make it to the general election. She will get Obamad again by some new Obama.

My brother has never made any comment of the sort. Nice deflection.

"The police are going to need the help of armed citizens!"

Right now armed citizens fending for themselves all over the country Houghtam. Police can't always get there in time and sometimes you have to take care of your own.

Not surprised you don't feel that way since you said even your own ilk don't see eye to eye with you and think you are a p***Y. BWAAAAA!

Okay. You have serious reading comprehension issues. Here is what I said:

I was speaking to ant199e. That means his ilk. It does not mean my brother.

And I also like your mischaracterization of what I was saying about you. I have no doubt that, in limited instances, people help the police department.

I was referring to this gem:

Should I post the 30 replies you got, including those from fellow conservatives, about what a colossally stupid statement this is? Or have you had sufficient shaming for today?

Actually, I don't want Hillary to be president. I don't want anybody to be president. I want the people to rise up, close down this government, hold a constitutional convention, and create a new government. In case nobody has noticed, our government is irreparably busted. It no longer works, unless you define "working" as taking bribes and serving the interests of one percent of the population. If that's the case, it works fine.

The President and Hilliary both said it was our best intell at the time. That was a ****ing outright lie and they hoped by having Rice tell it they would avoid the fallout if it went bad.

But Hilliary says what does it matter? It matters because she is a lying b**** and can never be President now.

Exactly! I love how the Obama administration is claiming that support wouldn't have arrived in time....my question is how did you know how long the battle would last?

Not sending in troops guaranteed it wouldn't last for long

It's the little things on the Mane that make me happy. You know like when you get someone all riled up and you can make them argue about whether or not their brother loves them.

Mine by the way loves me. Houghtam I guess needs to work on the relationship with his brother. Most likely the brother was the star athlete and got all the girls and poor Houghtam was good at being a puss.
