Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

Daytripper, smartestman is under the delusion that the phrase, "War on Women," is a catchy, but meaningless, slogan invented by a political operative and vetted by a focus group, and he is angry because it appears to be so effective. After all, that is how Republicans operate.

He does not believe women are under attack or that this slogan is a spontaneous expression of how a great majority of women feel about Republican legislation. He does believe that women make decisions based on feelgood slogans, not solid facts or intelligent analysis.

K You are losing it. The Angels didn't come from Germany. They come from Anaheim and they are playing Detroit tonight.
Damn, you are obtuse.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

smartestman, the Angles did not come from heaven. They came from Germany and invaded England. They were followed by the Saxons, another Germanic tribe, and their combined conquest is commemorated in the term coined to describe their descendants, "Anglo-Saxon."

scroat: see previous post, in which your new name was awarded.
Life must be nearly unbearable for the nasty little slime-balls that must look up from their spot in the gutter to see only ugliness which is all their small minds allow.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

Jimmie, you are such a putz. Do you actually believe the crap you put out? I bet you believe all loony left liberals are angles from heaven. Wait, there is no heaven. Ugh, may be the Dems can't say that. They might lose a vote.
Here's a good one:
"Michele Bachmann, for example, is a member of the House Intelligence Committee." Wow, a not so veiled insult and demeaning comment. You must hate all women. You must be declaring war on women. You can't honestly believe that you are better or smarter than Ms. Bachmann?
I am incredulous that even the Indy is stupid enough to pay you for the mindless trash you write.

Re: “We just need to remember Woody Guthrie

Somewhere along the way people have lost sight of what's being done to them or, to put it another way, they've misplaced their perspective on how it's being done. America is well on the path to being converted to a third world country where the privileged classes flourish and the rest of us - the most of us - provide the peasant class that is exploited to sustain them. That agenda has been moving along, sometimes slowly and sometimes more rapidly, since the mid-1970's. Arguing about communism is a red herring (the best puns are sometimes unintentional). Perhaps we'd do better to take heed of the fascists. Damn right we need Woody!

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

smartestman, I was not speaking for Mr. Hightower, who could not give you the communist point of view since he is no communist. I was speaking for Karl Marx. I note you have no rebuttal that is on point--just the usual tired old personal invective that passes for discourse among intolerant extremist ideologues. Don't be bitter. Better minds than yours have not been able to refute Marx.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

smartestman, you ask why it always takes at least two responses to clear the air after every one of your messages. The answer is clear. You have the uncanny ability to make so many errors in so few words it takes at least two responses, and often more, to address them all.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

K: I love how you speak for Jimmy the communist and Tosches, as if you know them. I'll tell ya, you and your little sis sniff are a hoot.
Your responses (why does it always take you two to attempt to answer one?) are more oral diarrhea. Let me ask, were they of the hand-wringing, teeth-gnashing, heart-bleeding or pants-peeing variety? It is hard to keep track with you loony left liberals.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

smartestman, liberals hate talking budget so much that they are demanding details and real numbers from Romney. You, on the other hand, are a real budget wonk, and you will vote for Romney without seeing any budget numbers at all.

Romney will raise the deficit. Businessmen and generals make poor presidents. Herbert Hoover was a successful businessman.

Tax cuts kill jobs.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

Since Mr. Hightower in not a communist, smartestman, he cannot speak for them, but I will explain the communist position to you. Wealth does not grow on trees, as you so wisely point out. Wealth is created by labor. The value of a commodity is equal to the amount of labor required to produce that commodity. The laborer is no exception. The value of a laborer is not equal to the amount of labor he performs. The value of a laborer is equal to the amount of labor required to keep him alive. The difference between the amount of labor he provides and the amount of labor required to keep him alive is what makes the capitalist who employs the laborer rich.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

Jimmy: I think what you meant to say was "Most 'liberals' would prefer a root canal to a budget discussion..." That makes more sense. Liberals believe money literally grows on trees.
Personally, I love talking budgets, especially establishing a fiscally conservative one and then staying within1% of it.
I can certainly see why a communist like yourself would not want to talk fiscal reality.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

Republicans used to be honest before Newt Gingrich arrived to muddy the waters. He taught the party that words are just semantic tools for getting your own way, with no inherent meaning, and certainly not a means of communicating the truth.

Re: “Mitt slums it with fish and chips

Jimmy: I'm sure you would not want to be viewed as a duplicitous ass and a hypocrite. Therefore, we are all waiting for your piece on the shameful waste of our dear first Lady's vacations. Of course she isn't in your imaginary and despised 1%, because she has the same delusional belief system as you. Or, shall we anticipate an article on how our wonderful President has wasted six trillion dollars in his brief stay with us?

(Aren't you glad you have at least one reader of your drivel?)

Re: “Short-sighted politicos shut state parks

It seems like a lot of state parks are closed lately. My husband and I drove down to Zion's National Park in Utah and we saw several signs that said it was closed. We were super unhappy! Why is this happening?

Re: “GMO fiction for children

Before using this GMO products better to contact doctor whether these are suitable to your kid or not? Otherwise, your kids may face health disorders in future. Recently, California people won GMO labeling battle. Get more info about Genetically Engineered Food Act - http://www.rosebudmag.com/truth-squad/cali…

Re: “GMO fiction for children

Corporate brainwashing.

We live in the land of the Big Lie, which we learned well from the Third Reich and played to same disastrous results in the "Permanent Republican Majority" of Tom Delay, Jack Abramoff, KKKarl Rove, George Bush and the biggest lie of all, "deficits don't matter" by Darth Cheney.
