Real
Americans; anyone who supports the GOP like a mindless drone. If
someone should stray from the talking point of the day they are
immediatly placed in the hate America catagory and shunned and ridiculed
as being a traitor to what America stands for

It's the typical GOP/conservative "code word/phrase" game. The GOP and their minions never say openly what they really mean. Instead they attack straw men that euphemistically represent what they really oppose .


That gives them cover with the 40% of gullible, "undecideds" in the
electorate to give them the margin they need to remain viable
politically.


In the case of Miranda Rights, its about portraying the opposition as being weak on terrorists, or, even as terrorist sympathizers or terrorist themselves.

    English please. Capitals and punctuations please. I would also commend you on continuing to reinforce my opinion of conservatives. I have no issue with people insulting parties, public figures, even comments but why is it that they must resort to personal insults. How can you be shocked at anyone being so stupid? Look at the number of Americans who not only elected Bush once,(although that is debatable) but twice and one need listen to Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann to hear stupid on steroids, hell the whole class of GOP candidates are not much of a brain trust. But of course, with computer courage, you feel it is okay to throw manners aside and violate the Sodahead code of conduct and in something that resembles English describe me as, "shock at the fact that any human being could be so stupid." Make sure when you whine about being blocked that it was for being rude and insulting and not because of your opinion because you offered none. I suppose you also claim to be a Christian as I do and that is not very Christ like behavior. Have a nice Christmas.

    Your post was an example of the superficial thinking of one steeped in left wing "progressive" rhetoric. And you have your equally superficial counterpart on the right wing side. Your post is a knee-jerk dismissal of many ideas,... some of which have at least some merit. Your thinking is like that of lawyer who simply cannot ackknowledge any merit at all to the opposing POV.

    so in otherwords you have nothing to refute that satirical proof in what I posted so you attack me and my post. If my thinking is as of an attorney, there is no need to acknowledge the POV of the G reedy O ne P ercent....they have no merit but they do have blame, blame for the debt, blame for the recession, blame for two wars, blame to continue to insanely propose the same failed economic nonsense. To do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result is the definition of insanity - Albert Einstein.

    I have yet to see the 1% complain, I only see people like YOU complain.

    You blame them for the debt?

    THAT TELLS ME YOU HAVE YET TO SEE THE NUMBERS, you are lost.

    NO I blame bush and any moron that voted for him or any other republican. It is simple arithmetic? Outed me how? I seem to think our founding fathers were protesters. Why should the one percent complain, they have more than ever and pay less than ever.

    LOL they might pay 50% of the taxes, but they make 90% of the income so shouldn't they pay 90% of the taxes? Are those numbers simple enough for your southern education?

    And no I am not an occupier but i support what they are doing. Weren't the tea baggers supposedly a grass roots protest but actually were an astroturf stunt of the GOP......why was their protest okay?

    Elizabeth Warren says it best I hope you are not deaf and ... as the saying goes

    4. muddy, as a road.
    5. clogged or obstructed with foreign matter: a foul gas jet.

    First statement was the POT CALLING KETTLE BLACK, it reeks of PROJECTION and a mindset of a CONFUSED PERSON.

    Stick to ONE SUBJECT at a time, finish the subject before moving on to MANY OTHERS, ony then can you have a CONSLUSION to the other topics and not SCREW UP THE BRAIN BY SWITCHING TOPICS.

    Ron Paul is a fringe candidate pushing a fringe economic theory that was proven false, he gives his supporters some kind of false superiority complex that they think he is independent, he is a Republican on steroids, the last two congress he has voted over 75% of the time with the party line, I doubt if you can find one democrat with that much consistency to the Party. If you had real Character he would at least run for congress as an independent., he is nothing more than bush on steroids with out the warhawk.
