And that is the way Scalia thinks. One of the best cartoons Jeff has drawn.
Sometimes even justices get frustrated at some of the looney decisions that are taking our country down. I suspect the major cause is having a narcissist in the oval office who is making choices about what laws to enforce and is also making solitary laws on his own. The left likes that since one of their own is doing it, but everything comes around. Let’s see how supportive they are of a conservative President making his own rules.
Been there, done that.
Dear Montana – yeah your state will benefit from this court. You had your election laws overturned. You have no right to control campaign contributions according to the plutocrats. Wake up boy.
Companies are affected by laws, therefore, should have the right to speak out.
They do have the right, Bill. The problem is their voices get louder in direct correlation to the size of their political contributions.
As has been the case of individuals through history. Has something changed?
Yes I forgot, companies are people and therefore they can speak out
how soon they forget … you’ve already forgotten President Cheney?
Exactly what are you referring too?
In other words, Bill, you would rather not talk about Dicktator Cheney.
No, it is simply that I have no idea what you are talking about. Cheney never had the power to issue a single executive order or declare he wouldn’t enforce a valid law.
No, he didn’t have the power. He spoke through GW Bush who did and said what Cheney told him to say.
So exactly what executive orders did GW issue that counteracted passed laws, or what passed laws did GW decide not to enforce?
I think we already had a taste of that during the Bush Administration the problem with your choices when compared to Obama is they all Sound like Bush, Act like Bush, now they even look like Bush you really need some better camouflage!
You might like to think that, but reality is far different. Bush did not do anything without Congressional approval or a legal standing. I’m sorry you don’t like Justices that actually read the Constitution rather than try to ‘interpret it’ to meet current liberal philosophy.
That is why over 180 countries want to try Chenney-Bush for war crimes.
Looney argument and bad spelling to boot.
“A narcissist who decides what laws to enforce ” Would that be like deciding that what everyone knows is TORTURE is NOT really Torture but enhanced Interrogation.
May you never have the opportunity to find out what real torture is like.
Antonin Scalia has come to embody the angry right malcontents. How life in America will improve when these individuals disappear for good.
Exactly how will your life improve with unlimited and unregulated immigration?
Your post is a non-sequitur. How do you go from Antonin Scalia to “unregulated immigration.”
Try to stay focused. Increase the meds. Your hillbilly is showing.
The left slam against Scalia is that he wanted some control over illegal immigration. If the current administration won’t enforce U.S. law, then Scalia rightly felt that Arizona, exercising its right as a state should be able to enforce the law. You seem to be against that, so it is pretty safe to assume you have no problem with unlimited and unregulated immigration and probably don’t live in Arizona.
Immigration policy needs to be examined objectively. President Obama has deported more illegal immigrants in history, but all you hear is rant and rave over this issue.
I’m so tired of hearing about the so-called poor. Im speaking about the individuals thats wearing 200 dollars Jordans on their feet, and the I-phones up to their ears. They qualify for all assistance, because their actions is poor, and their life management skills is poor. As a working person, I’m sick and tired, of the money I earned being taken, and given to other who is not contributing to nothing in this society!
Let me guess. You’re a high school English teacher, right?
When you’re pretending to be “one of the working poor objecting to the poorer rich being picked upon by shiftless poor people” it helps if you mis-spell things, you moron! LOL!
As a working person I’m sick and tired of PAYING YOUR TAXES FOR YOU, (as the rest of us have done since Bush’s 2001 tax cuts for the rich, you DIRTBAGS)—as you loll in your ill-gotten MANSIONS that you got through OUR HARD WORK—NOT YOURS.
The “working poor” are the ones who are tired of being robbed by shitheels such as yourself, pretending to be one of your own victims, you JACKASS!
You’re another blabbermouth Scapegoating someone else for your own problems.
Even Illegal Immigrants contribute something. Don’t they buy things; clothing, gas for the cars, smokes, food?
They’re not totally worthless.
Tell ya what, if you really want to complain about being taken for a ride, first look at all these Corporate-Backed Republicans who helped funnel our jobs, technology and wealth to China.
Not to mention Wall Street gutting just about everyones 401s, savings etc.
Want to blame someone, put the blame where it belongs; the GOP!
And your grammars are poor. And your thinkings are poor. And your racisms are showing.
Immigration objectively???? There is not enough jobs for the Americans! Why would we let other people just walk into this country unchecked? Thats insane!!!!!
Do you let people from other towns or from different states take your job?
Why dont we check in with the the haters in Alabama, ‘ find em and ship em out’ . Hoz that working? Gee, who is left to do all those sheitty jobs, lets rethink this…..
Why? To engage in that “race to the bottom” in wages and lost benefits, that’s been going on since Ronnie Dearest and subsequent Republican administrations took over the White House. Nothing like a few thousand immigrants to whom our minimum wage must’ve looked positively palatial, to undercut our salary schedules! And….as we all know, that’s exactly what happened.
You need to take a closer look at this administration’s immigration actions. ICE is under scrutiny for punishing their own who tried to do their duty.
The Republicans are the worst backers of illegal immigration because it provides low cost labor to their business buddies.
Bill — Obama came into office and starting sweeping undocumented aliens back across the border with a new broom. Bush had never deported any, although the states had arrested some and returned them to Mexico, but no previous administration moved them out the way Obama has done. He was fought the whole way by border states like AZ and Texas [of course, the reason W didn’t deport them was because he could never have gone back to Texas if he had; they’re the foundation of the economy there]. AZ pled state sovereignty in order to keep selling attack weapons, 20, 40, or 60 to each unidentified buyer, innocently denying that any of them ended up in Mexico. Nevertheless, the border is secured to an extent never achieved before, proven by the fact that the number of border crossers found dead escalated by about a factor of three. I’m not proud of it, but for the very, very least, you could stop making stupid remarks that betray that you have never read anything ever.
“Immigration policy needs to be examined objectively. President Obama has deported more illegal immigrants in history, but all you hear is rant and rave over this issue.”
That’s your objective analysis?
Xactly. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.
Don’t confuse them with facts. Its like cryptonite to the Fox News (Entertainment) crowd.
I live in Az now, I was born in Houston, I have fought against illegals all of my life, then Reagon gave amnesty to 20 million illegals. What we need is to enforce the laws we have. we also n’t want eed to fine and imprison people who hire them. The repubs don’t want that, they want cheap labor and to bust all unions, and do away with all worker protection. As ,long as repubs hate the middle class worker we will have illegals.
You are right and wrong. We don’t need amnesty for people who have broken the rules. The Republicans are not against going after employers. They also don’t want to bust unions, but do want right-to-work. Any union that is worth its salt can co-exist with right-to-work. Frankly, you had better take a closer look at just which party is doing in the middle class, that is unless you take a government job.
Welcome to the metling pot.. aka the USA ..the land of immigrants.
Not a single problem…with legal immigrants. Welcome!
True, but now we are in a recession and don’t need all that crap coming in and making the situation even worse.
Also: The nineteenth and early twentieth century immigrants were interested in becoming Americans.
The clowns that are coming in now want to go back to their third world shitholes.
You’re a typical lying scumbag, montanabill. NO union can co-exist with right-to-work—the business model for right-to-work is that YOU GET PAID WHAT YOUR BOSS WANTS TO PAY YOU ONLY.
The union model says that the worker should share in the profits that he helps make for the employer. And it has to be enforced every single contract because the employers would like people to do what they’re doing now—work for nothing, with NO BENEFITS, NO DAYS OFF, NO VACATION TIME—and be happy with minimum wage.
Any union worth its salt only exists in a right-to-pay-you-nothing-for-your-work state, by NATIONWIDE STRIKES that hit at the would-be employer contract-breaker, right smack in their profits.
A strike fund is essential for this. The business people in America know this, so they’re trying to make dues check-off illegal.
These employers are pigs, and sons of pigs, and it’ll be a while before their stench leaves this land. But leave, they will.
One way or another.
So ask yourself why unions can’t exist in right-to-work states.
Exactly why should employees share in the profits? They are not owners. They will not work without vacations or weekends off or more than 8 hours without extra pay. They will not mortgage their homes to meet a payroll. Many employers do grant bonuses or extra awards for good performance, but it is purely a discretion of the owners. You need to try to see things from the perspective of someone who has taken the risks and put in the time and sacrifice to start a company.
Employees are hired to do a job. When hired, they know exactly what the compensation will be, what the benefits will be. If they can’t accept that situation, they have the choice to choose another employer. They also have another choice, they can start their own business.
“Exactly why should employees share in the profits”? Well, the fact is, montanabill, that without the employees THERE WOULD BE NO PROFITS! And leaving aside the complete immorality of today’s wage-slave “market” —- up until recently, now that Republicans are in fear for their political lives, and are loosening purse strings—NOW there ARE jobs to pick and choose from, and for this time at least, employers will see their employees able to GO ELSEWHERE and leave them stranded for employees. Most employers are aware of this and are (reluctantly) raising salaries, even down here in TX. (LOL)! But it’s a start, and an encouraging one, to what has been a totally disgusting work “scene” up until right now. Me? I’ve joined up with some like-minded individuals for a Third Term for President Barack Obama! You’re welcome to join, should you wish to!
Many employers do share their profits with their employees usually through something like a 401k, but the choice is strictly up to them. If an employee truly wants to share in the profits of a company, that employee needs to start their own business. They need to take the financial risk. They need to work the 12-13 hour days. They need to work 7 days a week and forego vacations for years. They need to deal with employees like you.
Frankly, if you are dealing with a ‘wage-slave’ market, it simply means you haven’t prepared yourself with marketable skills or the appropriate work ethic.
So you and other like-minded slackers want another term for Obama. I can see why.
I’m with you there. We don’t necessarily need Obama but we do need a democrat. Someone who cares about America, not just corporations and not just someone who donates to their campaigns.
Montana Bill…..is that like a Montana Banana? Guess you never worked in industry or you would never make those stupid statements. It does not work if some get benefits without paying into and striking when the Union does. But lying as you do I do not think you are as ignorant as your comments…Actually, you sound like a kid who lives off mom and dad and never had to make a living or supported anyone? This is probably the case. Kid ….get off of the adult websites!
Let’s just say, that you couldn’t be more wrong. And if this is an example of your judgement skills, welcome to the world of minimum wage.
Your ignorance, Bill, is profound. I haven’t time to teach you even the basic of SCOTUS function, so I would suggest you not bring it up again in front of anyone whose opinion you prize.
Montana Bill has it right. We can tolerate the legals. It’s the illegals who are the problem.
My ancestors were here before the Spanish. I believe they were here legally. How do you fare?
Mine came over mostly from Germany and England and went through the citizenship process. Hard to track prior to 1850 when census records only mentioned a head-of-household and didn’t list spouses or children. Those that came over after 1850 can be tracked through passenger manifests and naturalization records, then can be tracked farther back in Europe.
You haven’t a clue. The “Left” – other than some marginalized individuals and groups – hardly exists in the US. What we have are right-wing loonies, such as yourself, moderate conservatives such as Obama, and a very few people even willing to accept the title “liberal.” Their complaints against Scalia go far, far beyond immigration, and rightly so.
YOU HAD 8 YEARS OF GEORGE BUSH, WHAT DID HE DO.
WHY DO YOU WAIT FOR A DEMOCRAT AND THEN START CRYING THAT HE IS DOING NOTHING ABOUT IMMIGRATION, PATHETIC.
You don’t live in Arizona either.
As someone who’s ancestry in this country goes back to the 1600s, it amuses me to see the grandchildren of immigrants alarmed about the influx of illegal immigrants from Latin America eroding their economic status. Have you ever considered what the immigration of your European ancestors did to the economic status of the Americans already in the US? Your ancestors were brought into America to depress wages, destroy labor unions and to help keep Black and Native Americans in poverty. The exact same reason our government turns its eyes away from the current illegal immigration. These immigrants are let in precisely to lower wages, destroy unions and keep blue collar Americans in their place. During the late 1800s and early 1900s every time African American communities began to pull themselves up economically, the white government would open up the immigration floodgates and new waves of ‘white’ immigrants would enter the country taking jobs from more qualified black Americans and depressing wages. It is fair to say that the reason black Americans are poor is because those European immigrants and their children (you) took and are still taking jobs and opportunities that would have gone to African Americans if the white European immigrants hadn’t been let in. Now that the immigrants aren’t European anymore, white Americans are all upset about ‘their’ economic status. Hypocrite. This is Karma – what goes around comes around.
Part of my ancestry also goes back to the first land grant settlers in New Jersey in the 1600’s. Another part came over simply looking for opportunity and became farmers on was then the western frontier (Illinois). Immigrants weren’t let in to destroy labor unions. Unions didn’t start to appear until the mid 1800’s and that was a time of severe poverty in Europe. The U.S. was looking for settlers and workers, not union busters. Industries needed workers. The unions formed in response to bad working conditions but really didn’t get a foothold until the late 1800’s.
I don’t agree that European immigrants took jobs and opportunities from Blacks. No more than they took such jobs and opportunities from orientals. You could, of course, find examples, but it was not the general case.
However, I can find no examples of any of my distant relatives not using the legal process that was in place at the time they arrived.
I’m sure, montanabill, that YOUR ‘distant relatives’ absolutely DID use the legal process that was in place at the time they arrived. That that process existed to screw anyone who wasn’t white, was beside the point. Had no such law been around, your “distant relatives” would have made one up.
As has happened on every continent and with every race. Wise up.
Unlimited immigration??? Hmmmm…maybe you should have a sit down with the Puebloans and they might give you a few pointers on how to deal with unlimited and unregulated immigration
The slam against Scalia is that he is just a heartless man. Immigration policy will only reduce immigration if we go back to the Simpson-Kennedy bill which held employers to the fire, huge fines and other penalties for hiring undocumented workers. Reduce the reasons for coming and there is no need for walls.
Since the government has been remiss in holding employers’ feet to the fire, it thus encourages other means of halting violations of our laws. I’m afraid the drug cartels and those who wish us harm do need some sort of walls.
Within my circles, the problem is we have has nothing to do with immigration; it is his clear lack of impartiality regarding the Citizens’ United decision. If you helped modify/craft it, you should not be allowed to weigh in on the decision regarding whether it is constitutionally allowed. Six of seven state supreme court justices in Montana ruled that it is unconstitutional. The fact that ruling to allow this legislation falls in line with, and thereby supports, his personally held political agenda is a clear conflict of interest.
But you were probably OK with Elena Kagan weighing in on Obamacare.
I really wouldn’t have any problem with removing corporations from elections, so long as unions were also removed.
Scalia behaves not like a Justice but a careless, thoughtless bigot trying to satisfy his right wing buddies. Scalia has already earned the reputation of one of the most arbitrary, most corrupt SCOTUS judge. So, when you herald him as the reference on ANYTHING it is laughable.
I could also have to say the same about Sotomayor and possibly Kagan on the opposite side since they will vote in lockstep. Perspective is a wonderful attribute
The left have many slams against Justice Scalia immigration is only one. I personally have problems with his stance regarding personal liberty which he is for when it is his liberty and against when it is mine.
My REAl problem with Justice Scalia is his cozy relationship with the Koch brothers.
Justice is suppose to be blind but Justice Scalia is always peeking out from under the blind fold. He will even put the scales aside so he can use both hands to grab the main prize.
I’d have to say that I have a real problem with Obama’s appointees being too close to him and having predisposed positions.
I’ll try to explain in simple words you can understand. Immigration is part of the Federal Government’s responsibilities. We cannot have 50 different Immigration policies.
The real reason so many of you right wing knuckle draggers are so upset with immigration reform is that you are scared to compete for jobs with people who are willing to take any job and do it better than you ever could.
Love all the name calling when someone doesn’t have an answer! Did you even listen to the audio of Scalia and Thomas with the Koch brothers? If not check it out. Type in Scalia and Koch brothers. Listen in! Yes I worked at finding my facts.
Wonder how many BILLIONS the Kochs dropped trying to get Romney elected? I know that Romney dropped a bundle and I heard his taped (without his knowledge) sales pitch to those super-wealthy donors. They’re ALL crying now!
You will be exposed more to other cultures and make more friends,
Unless you are an indigenous American (Native American) you are the descendant of an immigrant. . . you would not be an American had your forefathers been denied entry. As the saying goes, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance!” The US government has lots of student loans (thank you Democrats!), maybe you should think about finishing up that HS diploma. Only six more years and you could start college if you work hard.
Native Americans are not indigenous to the Americas. You should have learned that in whatever school you went to.
You are right, I am the descendent of immigrants, legal naturalized immigrants.
Thank you Democrats for students being in debt up to the ears, college costs going through the roof and too many people going to college getting nonsense degrees when they would be far better off, and our society as well, learning a valuable trade.
Like everything in life, a college eduction is far more appreciated if you have to work to pay for it.
Idiot. Student debt escalated under Bush, as did the home mortgage scandal. Countrywide was taking administration monies under the table. Student debt is about to blow up in lenders’ faces too.
The home mortgage scandal was the creation of the Affordable Housing fiasco and the insistence of one Barney Frank, that everything was okay and that Bush’s concerns were unwarranted. It is history. Look it up.
Love to! Can you provide me with a link?
Cause in MY history-book of that disaster, Bush was too busy fighting his Iraq War, and looking increasingly dim because of it, and that was his only concern. “Affordable Housing fiasco?” Barney Frank? The first thing Bush did after 9/11, was to GUT the White Collar Crime Division. Clearly, either he wasn’t worried about White Collar Crime at all—or, just on his own general principles, Bush must’ve L-O-O-V-E-D all those banksters, and THAT’S WHY MOST OF THEM HAVEN’T BEEN PROSECUTED, TO THIS DAY—-what they did, mortgage fraud, was no longer a crime! A BIG THANK YOU TO YOUR PRECIOUS—-(AND THEIRS, LOL!) BUSH!!!
Too lazy to use Google?
The indigenous Americans that you seem to like so much are also immigrants. They came from Asia.
Why is Montana Bill’s comment ridiculous?
Idon’t know anyone advocating “unlimited and unregulated immigration” but I am curious: are you native American? If not you are probably an immigrant. Your immigrant ancestors help to build this great nation so don’t knock immigrants.
I think you are referring to a response to someone who was advocating just that.
Even the ‘native Americans’ are immigrants. The only immigration I would knock would be illegal immigration because it cheats immigrants who obey the rules.
I think that even the Natives, would have called the whites “illegals” after a while. In fact, they did (See: French/Indian Wars)
As the child and grand child of immigrants who fought and were wounded in both WW I and WWII I can say that immigrants have added immeasureably
to the strength of this nation
And I whole heartily agree with you since my family of immigrants have fought in every single war from the revolutionary to Viet Nam, excepting the Korean action when everybody was either too old or too young. I believe the point is that we still welcome immigrants. However, it is unjustly unfair to those who follow the rules to have those who got here by sneaking in, get rights and privileges that legal immigrants did not get. Legal immigrants are required to learn about our history and system of government. They are required to learn English so that they may assimilate more easily.
Do you remember 1985? Ronald Reagan’s dictum: “Wet Foot, Dry Foot”? At that time it was the Cuban refugees from Castro’s Cuba. Reagan ruled that if anyone wishing to come to America, even if he had one wet (from swimming) and one dry foot on land, he was AN AMERICAN!!!!
Montana? That says it all. Let’s hear from someone from a state where the collective IQ exceeds that of an average teenager.
Now now, Murray: The deep arterial slashing that Bush & Co did to the Dept of Education, left the schools in Montana (and elsewhere), with little more than COMICS for textbooks. (See Elsevier, Inc). You expect them after all that, to be SMART in the Red States? Oh LOLOLOL!!!!! Thanks for the laugh, Murray!
everyone is an immigrant,please be advised.
Dodged the question.
Have you been watching too much Fox News Channel?
Interesting that no one will answer the question.
Well? I agree, it’s interesting that you don’t give us your Faux watching schedule! I for one can’t wait to see how many hours you devote to Bull$#it Mountain!
Usually about 1 hour per evening, then on to other channels. Why is it that you seem to think that the question has been answered?
They disappeared once, Bigspender. Right after the First Great Depression. Yet here we are now once again, seventy years after that. It’s Depressing. (NO LOL) Do we NEVER retain the lessons of the past? The Republicans during Reagan were VERY CAREFUL to socially split America apart—then start to divide us as families, so now sociology means more to us than does family.
Answer: No. Americans will NEVER retain the lessons of the past. Look at other countries who long ago adopted HealthCare for their people. Every day in America we bury children MURDERED by lack of doctors in this country. That is BEYOND SHAMEFUL. A society that eats its young will never thrive. How did America GET HERE?
By voting Republican. Just as we did during the First Great Depression. Now we have a great and smart President—and he’s getting us out of the filth that Republicans have, once again, mired Americans into.
But we have to do more. It’s illegal for leaders to lie to their people. Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice have GOT to be tried for warcrimes. If they are not tried and punished for their War Crimes (The Hague has already tried them in absentia, showing us the way), Americans WILL at some future point once again, be facing Republican-inspired-and-led ruin. We need the American Civil Liberties Union to draft a workable indictment, and then send US Marshals and/or Generals to arrest the former president and vice-president, etc.
We need to punish the pigs, or this WILL happen again.
Thank God that, at least, we’ve had a Real American as President, the past few years, and Osama bin Laden is dead, and at least the WTC has been avenged. Without President Obama, that wouldn’t have happened. Certainly Bush–whose fortunes his friend bin Laden advanced by bombing the WTC—would never EVER have caught his old friend. Bush’s skit: “Finding bin Laden” –detailing how that, under Bush’s watch anyway, wasn’t EVER gonna happen—-put the finishing touches for Americans, on what REALLY happened during 9/11.
And the Republicans wonder why they’ve become such pariahs. Good that the party’s tearing itself apart, like the POS that they are. Can’t happen soon enough for the rest of the American People!
scalia is used to getting his way,meaning GOP way.
This conversation is not about immigration.
It’s about the fantasy that the Founding Fathers would have adopted the Koch Brothers’ agenda. Not so, and all the Italian Attitude that Scalia projects will not make it so.
Scalia is feared by the Left because they have nobody on the Supreme Court that has the intellect to challenge his great mind.
They all have a better intellect than Scalia. You are totally wrong.
You’re close to right: all those appointed by Reagan and the Bushes certainly can’t match his mind, though “great” is not a word I’d use to describe it.
Thats the trouble with the left: anyone who disagrees with them, they want to get rid of. They cannot see a world where their so called enemies are allowed to have an opinion that is different than theirs. Take that one step further in a nation that has financially collapsed and Martial Law rules with government police officers. You will have Germany in 1939 all over again. One party in power with the entire backing of the national police force to restore and keep order and any malcontents (that is conservative right wing republicans who simply disagree with the liberal left wing democrats) Will be carted off to the government concentration camps in Montana or Utah where foreign forces have been doing training exercises with US troops If you think Scalia went overboard, you should see Nancy pelosi or Harry Reid or Mr. Obama himself when they get angry. The e-mails I get from the Democrat party are full of hatred towards those who oppose them. They simply can’t believe that they might be wrong and actually leading this fine nation to its destruction. Obama’s America will be a total collapse and result in a Totalitarian State where censorship of conservative views will be silenced. Thats why Ron Hetland said that life in America will improve when these individuals disappear. If only everyone were left wing liberal democrats…..If only the sky were topaz. If you want your dream of a liberal, secular, abortion filled, homosexuality rampant, women in charge over men, elderly put to an early grave, left wing Totalitarian society, you need to get rid of everyone who disagrees with you. Hitler did it and so will another Charismatic leader bring it to America. Anything to restore America’s place as a world power after our Nation collapses financially, just like WWII Germany. History does repeat for those who don’t care to learn from it. You won’t think I have gone overboard when it happens.
You couldn’t possibly be projecting, could you? However bad the non-existent “Left” in America – better labelled the “Sane,” may be about those who disagree with them – and many bend over backwards and twist like pretzels to be fair to the opposition – you and the rest of the insane Repugnant cult that has replaced the Republican party are far, far worse, and are becoming even more strident and intolerant – if that is possible – day by day.
Sad they cannot be removed.
Pensamiento y accion es la forma de ganar a los mentirosos y cobardes
rebublicanejos. Nuestra consigna: LA VERDAD frente a los BRIBONES
Soy de procedencia hispana y apoyo a nuestro presidente Barack Obama y confiamos en el triunfo contra los bribones ,que mienten y confunden en su criminal carrera, contra nuestras convicciones y formas de vida TAMBIEN SOMOS CIUDADANOS DE NORTEAMERICA Y APOYAMOS A NUESTROS HERMANOS INDOCUMENTADOS
President Obama and his security council have been preparing contingency plans for a financial collapse of America. The military will become the National Police force as it was in Germany when they collapsed after WWI. We are so far in debt that even the entire Senate rejected Obama’s latest budget by 0-99. It would have increased the national debt from 16 Trillion to 26 trillion over the next ten years. Who ever does not believe our nation will collapse is blind and foolish. Every other World power in history collapsed and so will we. To the gentleman who called me a part of the ” Insane Repugnant Cult that has become the Republican party”, you only made it very clear when I stated that there is a hatred towards those who are opposed to the liberal, immoral, government addicted spend everything on anything agenda. If we are repugnant to you now and you consider yourself sane and the rest of us insane, it won’t be long before you lock us up because we dare to believe, act and think differently than you. You want a nation of only your kind. Diversity is fine in your eyes as long as it doesn’t include conservative Christian views that challenge yours. You do not bend over backwards to allow conservative opinions and ideas. Just talk about valid voter ID laws and you guys go into a feeding frenzy. Talk about defunding Planned Parenthood who helps moms murder their own children in their own wombs, and you attack us like vicious animals ripping and tearing us apart with your vulgar words. If my mom, who didn’t want me, had murdered me by an abortion, you wouldn’t even be reading this. You might even say good riddance, I didn’t want to hear that anyway. But then you are telling me that you would have encouraged my mom to get rid of me by an abortion simply because she became pregnant by a man she didn’t want a child with, rape or otherwise. I would say that qualifies me to say that you have a hatred towards me and could care less if I live or die. You backed up my earlier statement to the tee. I can’t wait to see how you treat others when this nation collapses and no food is in the stores and gas is $15-$20 per gallon and you lost your job because your company closed as many will. That is why many have bought property outside the US to prepare for those days.
PS If I am insane simply because I hold different beliefs and values than you, then we are on the road to censorship of everyhing except liberal left ideas and repression of conservative views and anything different than the Government’s liberal views. if that is what you call sane, then you are the one who is insane, not us.
Interesting fiction but it will never sell, it is even too far out for Fox News and Dinesh D’Souza
The truth never sells to people who are closed minded. Reality will hit America like an unexpected earthquake. When our nation collapses, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Your problem is you stereotype people into “political” groups and compare ideas to those groups. When they are too far out, in your opinion, you dismiss them ,and can’t even conceive that it could happen. You need to study your history more to recognize the same signs that led to the collapse of other world powers. America is well into the final stage, but we are soooo blind, and arrogant, we can’t even conceive that we could be destoyed economically and physically. I am preparing for the worst and praying to God for the best. I suggest you do the same.
I don’t think you’re insane, but based on just your first two or three sentences, I believe that you are among the right wing extremists who allow yourself to embrace wild conspiracy theories, a la Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. There’s a place for rational opposition to liberal political philosophy, but purveryors of doomsday conspiracy theories will never be taken seriously by the majority of the American people. If you really want to be a change agent, you must present yourself as a rational, thoughtful activist rather than a knee-jerk Chicken Little screaming that the sky is falling and that we’re about to become a police state. The Republican Party is right now trying to decide if it’s going to right its ship by embracing the needs of all our citizens rather than dissing women, minorities, gays, and lower income folks rather than targeting its message only to a declining percentage of white people and wild-eyed right-wing extremists like yourself.
Let us consider a few facts:
In the past hundred years spending, the deficit and national debt grows under republicans. So does unemployment. Yet every year the trot out the same tired lies about how ‘they are the party of business, fiscal responsibility and jobs.’ That is a lie; it doesn’t happen. Example:
Clinton left office with a budget surplus and strong economy. Large surpluses were predicted, to the point that Alan Greenspan warned of the dangers of ‘paying off our debt too quickly’.
President Bush and the Republican caucus rammed through a huge tax cut for the richest Americans.
9/11, a failed war on terror, 2 real wars (one against the wrong guys) and the economy is in ruins.
Obama takes office with the economy in free fall. With active resistance from Republicans he (mostly) halts the free fall in a year, and 3 years later we are back up where we were 4 years ago – except employment and the economy are improving.
Everything else you say is likewise not true, but there just isn’t enough space. Like the fiction of ‘responsible Republican spending’, the hatred and vitriol you claim from us is actually generated by extremists on your side. Don’t like abortion? Neither do I. Are you so ignorant that you don’t know that accidental pregnancy AND abortion are greatest in the bible belt? How about that parts of Europe, where information AND contraception are freely available have 1/10 our abortion rate! So work to minimize accidental pregnancy, it does a lot more than just praying.
I believe that Scalia will go into convulsions if Obama apppoints another liberal justice.
Good! That’s another Obama replacement. (grin)
Conservatives like to paint Obama as a dangerous man, a secret Muslim, socialist, communist, an advance man for the coming of the anti-Christ, etc. When actually, the most dangerous men in America don’t even require conspiracy theories to identify them. Their threat is real and right out there for everyone to see: Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Rupert Murdoch, Franklin Graham, Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, and a host of others with similar extreme agendas that would inhibit progress in the country by attempting to stoke fears of a more diverse and less plutocratic society.
Robert: I have just read an article that the present administration has deported more illegals than previous administrations.Is that the reason for Supervisors of Immigration services suing the federal government for not allowing them to do there jobs properly.I have two cousins that work for the Immigration service and they have been told to stand down,or be fired.I wish the writers would bring out the real detail of this administrations policies on illegal immigration.I am glad to see that Justice Scalia has looked at unregulated and unwanted illegals living in the US and have provided states exercising there rights to enforce the laws.
This SCOTUS is out of control. With Alito saying “Citizens united is a good thing” the other day, Scalia “hinting” with the likes of Cheney GOD willing Obama can replace at least one maybe two of these lunatics.
Those who subscribe to the religious infiltrators like Scalia are right wing dogmatists, and federalists, both very bad for a democracy. Especially if they are put in such positions of power. The righties on the court are activists for corporations and religion, they do not represent the average american. In a fair world we would have the best legal minds setting in judgement on the Constitutionality of a case objectively, the right has no such concept in their bumper-sticker motivated universe. The only good news is a few of these old farts are going to be leaving soon, and their replacements could be American jurists with some street knowledge and some court trial experience like the last judge Obama put on the court. And then the court could do the work of the people and forget granting favorable outcomes to inanimate objects. And hopefully restore some sense of proportion and a little common sense in the operation of the courts. Right now with this group we have for sale signs everywhere, justice to the highest bidder.

Those of you onthe right are again upset that the Dems won the whitehouse. WhenBush was Prez he didn’t stop immigration. All he did was give the military-industrial complex more business but he really didn’t do anything. Check the numbers, accept your election losses and stop obstructing….
Scalia is supposed to be “brilliant”, but he is really not so. His so called judicial tempermant is non -existent, and his judgement is lacking. How do you go hunting with a sitting vice-president while serious and important matters are in front of the court, which affect the administration? His angry outbutrsts, interviews and such are antithetical of what a judge should be. We don’t need left or right leaning judges, we need serious and unbiased people, who don’t have their own agenda. Lifetime appointment may be too much.
Montana Balls….go do your school work kid. You do not know history! Stop screwing around on the computer and do your school work!
Montana Balls is the clown who is spewing out worn out Tea Party one liners. They were rejected soundly during this last election. Yet….he goes on repeating them over and over.
