    Let me set you straight. The reasons given by the rw apologists here are neither rational or correct. The blame the victim attitude of the right sounds to me like the BS it is. Just wanted to clear that up.
    Fox News - Rich people paying rich people to tell middle class people to blame the poor.

    Here is another example of the Fox effect, woefully uninformed viewers.
    Oh you again. The embodyment of liberal special education. The personification of whats wrong with America. The Jerry's kid of the progressive agenda.

    Didn't get enough of your ass handed back to you last time ?

    Is it my fault you two possess the cumalative frontal lobe capacity of a syphilitic chimpanzee ? In the tertiary stages of course...

    Look it up.

    Is it my fault the public school system didnt equip you with the inteligence to form a objective opinion let alone the ability to draw parallels to further understand complicated issues. ?

    Feel free to argue the points I made instead of just typing out the typical Daily Kos response


    How about that Scott Walker ? Great man isn't he. I like to think hes sitting back giving the leftist activist that invaded his state and the average liberal the finger with a big smile on his face.

    Bet Walker winning....again made your day.

    I didn't see anyone here blame the people that took out the loans...did you spill some kool aid on your glasses?

    But now that you mention it, yes they are also to blame to a point. Why would any honest American take out a loan they knew they couldn't afford in the beginning????

    I believe somebody else on here said it best, just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD do something. Kind of like drinking the kool aid....
    Don't worry zombies are looking for brains, you're safe...

    Geeee, why not call me a fascist, or liberal, anything to duck the point that regardless of E. Germany we are a Democratic/Republic. and the only time the Constitution seriously comes into play is when the legislation makes it to the Supreme Court.
    What you sound like is somebody that likes to throw negative associations in a feeble attempt to create some level of guilt by association. Weak argument.

    Lenny Bruce was a social/political satirist. If you had bothered to read more carefully you'd see I was not comparing their writing, only for me who was more memorable. Simple.
    I don't listen to any motivational speakers. In my view, like the I Ching, "Outside influences cause little permanent change."

    I won't bother with Hill's books as I have my own reading to do. Mostly works by Edward Abbey. It's like comparing Abbey's road trip to Hill's head trip. But hey, there's something for everyone.

    Polls are nothing more than a joke anymore for the most part. I think people like playing with the pollsters. I know I do.....

    Almost 1/4 of exit polling said they didn't believe in recalls except for serious stuff. Maybe high treason. Kinda like "we elected him, let him finish."
    Seemed also Wisconsin didn't care much for outside money controlling their election.
    Teacher unions often aren't all that popular with teachers, just tolerated. A lot is not being able to get rid of a teacher that sucks.

    In other words, Lenny Bruce was a comedian...just like I stated. You seem to have a penchant for wanting to make comments on things you either don't understand or admit you don't listen to. Must be nice to just know it all naturally....
