I'm not a Liberal but I am a Democrat, have been ever since Vietnam, I'm also a Veteran receiving Care at the VA Hospital in my area and also  Retired and receiving Social Security and Obama or his Administration have never asked for any of my Guns, good freaking luck if anyone does. Funny thing is I was also a Bench Tech for years before I got my EE Degree and agree The President has done a good Job especially considering all the Obstructionist Republicans have done to Stop him from doing anything which was their Stated Goal from day one of his Administration.

and get these  liberals  outa  office  and get some good  folks  in  the house and senate  that  will do as  America  needs and when the election  comes  pick a good  leader for the country

Back up a minute on history - like for at least 60-70 years...from Dulles and Eisenhower to present. Suez Crisis, The Invasion of Sinai, Moshe Dayan, Gamal Abdul Nasser, Prince Aga Kahn, Prince Faisal, Osama bin Laden, Yassir Arafat, the Crown Prince of Brunei, Saddam Hussein, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And let's talk about the Banana Repulbics, neo-colonialism, and the Communists and Generalisimo Francisco France (yes, he's still dead), Juan Batista, Kruschev, Chairman Mao Tse Dung, Papa Doc Duvalier, the Marcos's,  The Red Threat. McCarthyism. Theoretically, those of us in our late sixties lived through all that and should remember. Air raid duck and cover drills in your class in grade school with all those lovely windows in the school room waiting to shower you with shards...just in case their was one.

Who is it who's sold off some of our national parks and large parcels of real-estate to China, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, etc.? Our government...to finance the overbloated National Debt from all the wars. Now China's jacked up their yen, not to mention breathing the air in Beijing is like a two-pack a day smoking habit. Bush Jr's 'little Shock N Awe' war was costing us 20K a SECOND. Hold your breath for a minute and you'll be rich! Cheney and Rumsfeld laughed all the way to the bank. Viet Nam wasn't anything but a drug war, burnin' through downtown Saigon. One of Mitch McConnell's father in law's boat was found to be packed with mass quantities of cocaine, but he was found 'innocent of any wrong-doing' . 

What a perfect 'fall guy' - a black president with an obstructionist, Koch Brothers owned Republican Congress who are their talking heads; who have managed to pass less bills than any other congress before them and even shut down the government whilst reading Dr. Seuss. That certainly proves he's incompetent. How about Mr. Manpants and NAFTA; Reagan's draconian public education cuts? What about the Neo-Con PC's who want to further rewrite our history books and school text books to hide what really happened? It was already a lie with I was in fifth grade History class. Finally, some people actually know the truth about Christopher Columbus and Hernan Cortez. Let's not talk about the US Supreme Court, full of corporate minions and shills.

Who's ruining this country?

Who's buddies? Aaaaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhhhhh.

We've had three vehicular homicides in the state in the last week and I lost count of how many shootings, planned shootings that were averted happened this week here. Maybe we should talk about taking people's cars away too.

go  girl  we  know  history  was  all a  manufactured  story  for  us  to  read  and  be told  we were  reading  the  truth as  they  want  us  to  believe  one of the best  movies  I  saw  was  Air America   and it sure  wasn't  far  fetched  neither  was  the  guns  for  drugs  in the Banana Republics that  just happened  to  fall in our  laps  Not it was  manufactured  by  our  good  ole  boys  messin  with  history  again and lining their  pockets  I remember  the  air raid  drills and fallout  shelters and Castro and  his  Russian  missiles that  Kennedy blockaded  Cuba over and cut diplomatic  ties  with  and  yea they are  all crooked  politicians  have  been  since  after the  war between  north and  south  that  they  said  was  to  free  the  slaves  but  was  not  etc  yea  this  country  has  been  heading to  hell in a  handbasket  for  a  long  time  now they  putting people in jail for their  beliefs  like in Kentucky where the  marriage license  lady refused to issue  a  license to a  same  sex  couple  because  of  her  Christian  beliefs    and it  goes  on......................

The point is...THEY ALL DO IT. This party and that party is pretty much an illusion any more. They put Dumb up against Dumber and it doesn't matter who wins...they're going to end up doing the will of whoever's running things this decade. Like the Koch Brothers. And it will all play out years in the future. These things too my father told me, long ago.

Hmmmm, do I want this old fart and this bimbo milf who doesn't even know American History (but she's a milf an' a hunter, dagnabbit!) or do I want this guy who might be black but he makes more sense??? Let me think?

Hmmmm, do I want Dumb (GWB) or seemingly Dumber (Kerry)? Scandals about Kerry? Oh well at least with the Weasel we know what we're getting...if you're paying attention. Sometimes he didn't.

It don't matter :tearlaugh:  :sadder: :iminnocent: :ummm:

Yup, Bay of Pigs, Fidel and Che. I started reading about the Banana Republics and started recognizing names and incidents and the more I read the more I was like "No wonder Central America is so messed up!" And I think of all the "Rio!" musicals, Drinkin' Rum and Coka-Cola, and all that lalalalala. OMG....... That is still a mess down there, drug-lords included. Heh...the people of Guatemala just put their el Presidente in jail and he faces trial on some serious charges. They were going to take all the government's money. Nothing much.

Humans..........

 I was in Nam saw the Lie up close and personal. My units job (Mechanized Infantry)was mostly as an Armed Taxi service for Special Ops Teams into and out of Laos, we weren't even supposed to be in Laos (see the movie Air America, it existed), their job was assassinations and kidnapping of NVA Officials and forces in Laos trying to stop the flow of Drugs in the Golden Triangle, the US Govt wanted it Open because the Money basically was financing the War against the North and the CIA. That freaking place is why I'm an Atheist, I can't believe any God would allow such BS and don't give me the Free Will crap. I'm a Democrat because Republicans are so Holier than thou Bible thumping War Hawks they spout the Bible and being Christian then Invade some Country because they want what they got. That BS has got to Stop, Nam was for Drug Money, everything in the Middle East is for Oil Money. Iran and Nukes scaring Israel don't make me laugh, America is the reason there is an Israel I think it's time they stopped counting us to back their every move and back their own Plays. You want worries worry about Pakistan they are already Nuclear they've basically been in a shooting War with India (also Nuclear) for what, Centuries and Pakistan for damn sure are no friends of the U.S. We've got to stay out of everyone else's Bidness and take care of America for a change and that will not happen under a Republican Administration. You are right about all Politicians and Political Parties being in it only for Power but what other choice do we have but to choose the lesser of two Evils.

Ummmm, vote for Cthulhu. At least you know what will happen then.

Now Humans do taste good to Cthulhu.  :ummm:

There have been Six different Party Systems in this country and the one that was anything like what the original founding fathers intended was the First one. What we have now isn't even anything like the Second Party System. Look up "First Party System; Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Party System" on WikiP some time. It's rather enlightening.
