wow, the statist theocracy that infests this land has turned this quote in to an art form.

J Carlton, Calgary

Hmmm...If the problem were to be "joblessness", our government has found that "wrong" solution by adding about 10,000 government jobs a month to the already huge drag on productive people. How long can that go on before we simply run out of money?

Anonymous, Reston, VA, US

both Mike and J prove that they are asses

Waffler, Smith

Sounds like the simple, neat five page Republican Health Care plan. I am so happy that Anonymous is here now to tell the truth on others. Just keeping repeating your post Anon. Obama nailed the asses at there Winter Retreat. He told them that their simple, neat sound bites may make for good politics with the simple folk but they are simply and purely WRONG. Speaking of asses did y'all hear Sarah at the Tea Party thell them asses about how "the world since and because of Obama has lost hope in ALASKA". She is not only one but has her head up it.

jim k, Austin

Mike and J are right on and Waffler, please sober up before blathering on this web site. And those "asses" at the tea parties are the reason we don't have a 2000 page monstrosity of a "health care plan" passed at this time.

Mike, Norwalk

Anonymous, as with Waffler and a few others here, you make up a club of pridefully ignorant, dutiful slaves, and otherwise malefactors wishing to push the statist theocracy's doctrinal agendas on those noble sons and daughters of liberty who desire to be free. Considering that source, I wear the name calling and associated sentiment as a badge of honor, thank you !

Gotta love Mencken! Actually, we think the 'fools' in Washington are making mistakes, but knowing the covert reasons for most of what comes out of DC, everything is working out perfectly for the permanent subjugation of the American people -- as planned.

D, Fort Worth

I think Anonymous is right again. If only we had more responses like his this website would be vastly improved.

Mike, Norwalk

Dick from Ft. Worth, good to see you back. You need to comment more so that I know whether I'm just a little right or exactly right on. Thanks

Waffler, Smith

Yeah and Mike has his head up in it also.

    Name calling: the refuge of losers. As Rahm Emmanuel says, "F!@#$%^ Retards!"

    I was under the impression this was a site for those who THINK. It is turning into an outlet for those who don't think as they are too busy slinging mud. I may unsubscribe unless people have something to say that is intelligent.
