"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
"Airborne…. seriously? You see nothing wrong with going off on a rant about how the complaints of all Americans about the policies of this White House must be racially-motivated? Seriously? I repeat: please sitck to the issues."
Seriously, I saw nothing wrong with the first rant from Rosemary Potter, your rant, my rant or any of the other rants written here.
I repeat please read the full statement of policy and stop trying to silence someone who has as much right as you or I to write whatever they please, about whatever they please...Free Speech is a double edged sword.
"Third, please stick to the issues."
Sounds like a moderator...I fail to see anything in the policy statement which says a poster need "stick to the issues."
Please read the full policy statement...
"This country was not founded to hold everyones hand, wipe thier nose, and powder their butt when things get a little rough."
No, it was founded by the wealthy, for the wealthy. To wipe their noses and powder their butts. To bail out their financial institutions when they become too greedy but are "too big to fail."
All at the expense of the citizenry...

Of course it is. We live in a plutocracy and have for two plus centuries. A plutocracy that now has a great many corporatocratic overtones, more so with the latest decision by SCOTUS to allow practically unlimited corporate campaign contributions to those whom they favor.
Since first being warned of the military/industrial complex by Dwight D. Eisenhower, it has done nothing less than he warned it would. Grown bigger and stronger with a stranglehold on government. A government not concerned with the welfare of it's citizens but a government who's only concern is the preservation of government. With incompetent politicians who spew ideological lies to their deluded base and who's only concern is to get elected and re-elected.
In 2005, a Senator (all of whom are millionairs) who was just elected had to raise $10,000 a day, from day one, to finance their next campaign. What is the price of election now?
Call a member of Congress and ask for a meeting, you'll be ignored. Call a member of Congress as a lobbyist and ask for a meeting, you'll definitely be heard.
As Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, once said: "We have the best government that money can buy."
While this may well be the best form of government on the planet, the bar is set so low that it's practically buried. The one thing every man, woman and child on this planet has in common with each other is corrupt government and inept politicians...
Impeach the President, eh?
Thanks for the laugh...
These two corrupt politcal parties, their inept politicians, deluded followers and partisan politics in general will be the death of this country yet.
No doubt this was a nut job, And no doubt it was a purposeful, planned attack on this politician and political in nature.
Much the same as the shootings at Ft. Hood was a political statement, carried out by a nut job.
