    @LD

    Perhaps a basic lesson in 5th grade American History is in order. You DID attend 5th grade didn’t you? I certainly hope so. People shouldn’t be allowed to vote unless they went to 5th grade.

    Enough, Thus starteth the lesson.

    First, you probably understand the basic tenets of “private property rights” I assume. You have the right to keep your property and do pretty much anything with it that you want, within limits as set by the law, right? But what if there were no laws except for the ones that created a persons rights to the properties in question? That certain enforcable rules were in place requiring the owner of that land extract a minimum amount of income from that land, by any means nessesary?

    I want you to attempt to answer both these questions, as well as you can. From the heart.

    The original 13 colonies were, get this, PRIVATE PROPERTY! Private property of the Corporations as chartered by the King of England, held in total ownership by the King and his various Dukes and Barons, who were loyal to the King with granted permission by the King, called “Charters”. Those Charters formed Corporations that were held by the King and the various members of the Royal Family and his allies and vassals around Europe. There was only one purpose of those Colonies. That purpose was to generate income for the Crown and by default, the people who the King allowed to hold those properties through those Charters. Any resident of those properties were required to pay rent, or tribute, or generate some form of income for the owners of those properties. Chartered Corporations. Granted entirely by the will of the King. Total ownership.

    Those Corporations levied taxes on the residents of those land holdings. Every farmer, every worker. Slaves were taxed. Tea was taxed. Stamps were taxed. RENT was fucking taxed. You even had to pay taxes when you were in prison, and those taxes were compounded into debts that would keep you in prison until you paid them off, which was impossible, as incarcerated people don’t make much money while sitting in a prison cell, so you stayed in prison for most of your life, and if your relatives wanted to get you out, they had to pay off those debts. Such a life was generally very short, as the prison keepers were not required to feed you, or allow you to bathe, see a doctor or even let you out of your cell. Ever. You could rot in your own excrement if you offended the wrong landholder, even if no actual crime was committed.

    These things were not taxed so the owners of the land could build roads or schools or libraries. They were taxed, and the money was sent back to England to generate income for the landholders, and they paid a tribute to the King, who took a pretty sizable chunk off the top for himself and the Crown. The entire British Empire ran on this principle. The Colonies were a part of the British Empire, and created soley to make the king and his Vassals shitloads of money.

    The rebellion occurred because the people of this Nation wanted to keep that tax money at home. To build roads, and prisons, and Schools and libraries. To improve the state of our own living conditions here. The rebellion occurred simply because the people doing the work to generate that income were being ripped off by the fucking King and his vassals, who would levy a “tax” (really a tribute) on everything they could. Food, water rights. The size of your goddam whiskey bottles. Every stamp, every newspaper. Every object they could, so they could take that money for themselves and keep up those tribute payments to the King. Why? Because the original 13 Colonies, were PRIVATE PROPERTY. Those Dukes, and Lords, and Barons owned the land, outright. They could do whatever they wanted to the land and the people residing upon it, as long as they paid tribute to the King for the privilege of ownership of the land and the Charters that granted them those privileges.

    Thats what the American Revolution was about, you fucking moron.

    And Spuddy dear? What was happening in the 16th century in North America had little bearing on what was happening in the 18th century.

    Christ, the level of STUPID demonstrated by you folks is utterly staggering.

    @3 ” … should go back to Harvard and take Finance 101, you know how to pay for the programs you think are so damn important!”

    What for? Nobody in the private sector does. CEOs pay themselves tens of millions even though their companies are losing money. Bankers write millions of mortgages for people who can’t afford them to collect lucrative fees even though they know those loans will never be paid. Republican politicians borrow trillions from China and other foreign countries to give tax breaks to billionaires who don’t need them and which the country can’t afford. If people like them want the rest of us to be models of fiscal rectitude, then they should start by setting a good example. Why should we be the only ones expected to balance a checkbook?

    Sigh, @ Spuddy.

    The first forays into North America were the Spanish and the French. The first European settlements in North America were Spanish. The Louisiana purchase was purchased from the French who owned two thirds of the North American Continent at the time, with the Spanish owning maybe another quarter. New York was originally a Dutch colony. Nobody except the natives held the land at all before the mid 1600′s, and the British, Spanish and French had to murder 95% of their population to get it.

    North America was a wilderness. A lot can happen in 250 years, especially when you control a worldwide empire.

    Judge Blocks VA From Censoring Cemetery Prayer

    “A federal judge in Texas has told the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs that it cannot censor a pastor’s invocation at a Memorial Day ceremony.

    “The VA had ordered the Rev. Scott Rainey to remove a phrase using Jesus Christ from the prayer, arguing the line excluded other beliefs held by veterans, KHOU-TV in Houston reported.

    “On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes disagreed, writing the government cannot ‘gag citizens when it says it is in the interest of national security, and it cannot do it in some bureaucrat’s notion of cultural homogeneity,’ according to a report in the Houston Chronicle.

    “The debate centered over the close of the prayer, which read: ‘While respecting people of every faith today, it is in the name of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, that I pray. Amen.’”

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011.....er/?hpt=T2

    Here are some additional facts: The lawsuit was filed on the minister’s behalf by a conservative “family values” group. The judge is a conservative Reagan appointee with ties to the oil and gas industry.

    The minister is not a V.A. employee, and the ceremony is being put on by a private group, but is held on public property.

    A local rabbi publicly stated he supports the minister’s free-speech argument.

    http://www.chron.com/disp/stor.....z1NYpWcU00

    http://www.khou.com/news/local.....01124.html

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: This case illustrates the complexity of First Amendment legal issues. The issue is basically this: Can government bureaucrats order a minister from a private church giving the invocation at a ceremony sponsored by a private group, but being held on the grounds of a federal cemetery, to deliver a non-denominational prayer so as not to possibly offend the families of non-Christian veterans buried in the cemetery?

    In this case, I agree with the judge, minister, and rabbi. If the minister was an employee of the V.A., the V.A. would have the right to supervise his work, but he isn’t — he’s a private citizen coming onto public property that is open to all citizens. If I go to the cemetery, kneel, roll my eyes skyward, and ask the Great Mother Rabbit Spirit to take into Her care and keeping the souls of all the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Shinto, and atheist veterans buried there, I have every right to do that and the V.A. can’t eject me from the cemetery for doing it.

    If the V.A. had invited the minister to give the invocation at a V.A.-sponsored Memorial Day observance, the V.A. would have the right to disinvite him if he didn’t submit his invocation for pre-approval, because in that case it’s a V.A. ceremony, therefore the V.A. would have the right to run it as it determines, and the V.A. would potentially be violating the Establishment Clause by preferring one religion over another in its conduct of the ceremony. But this ceremony is sponsored by a private group, and its actions are not actions by the government, but by the private group, and private associations of individuals do have a First Amendment right to prefer one religion over another.

    The V.A.’s actions are somewhat understandable. Religious expression is a contentious (and frequently litigated) issue in our society, and bureaucrats often get sued over their management of religious expression on public property no matter what they do. They also have a duty to uphold the laws of the land and respect the rights of all citizens. So, it’s understandable that they often opt for a policy of least-offensiveness when they try to navigate the legal thickets of free speech and religious freedom. I think the bureaucrats made a mistake this time, but it’s an understandable mistake, and we shouldn’t be too hard on them.

    When you get right down to it, it’s no big deal. After I’m dead and gone, some Christian minister praying over my grave to Jesus instead of the Bunny Queen isn’t going to bar me from admittance to the Meadow In The Sky. And if my neighbor voted Republican all his life, he’s staying in Hell no matter what anyone standing on the grass above us says.

Sort of a Ralph Nader Florida Effect on a nationwide scale, only this time it’s working against Republicans. Hmmm, I can see a 100% Democratic Senate and a 90% Democratic House of Representatives and a permanently Democratic White House under this scenario. THANK YOU TEA PARTY!!!

    Gil Scott-Heron, the poet and recording artist whose syncopated spoken style and mordant critiques of politics, racism and mass media in pieces like “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” made him a notable voice of black protest culture in the 1970s and an important early influence on hip-hop, died on Friday at a hospital in Manhattan.

    Actually, I don’t have a problem with that, because those raises were a gift of the legislature, not part of the employment contract. And they were paid for with taxes, not from withholding from employee pay, as the contractual pension is. In fact, at the time the PERS 1 Colas were being discussed on this board I posted that they should be rescinded to help balance the budget.

    I don’t, however, agree with your gloating over pay cuts to hardworking and underpaid public servants as a consequence of (a) Republican economic mismanagement and (b) politicians’ stubborn and gutless refusal to fix a dysfunctional state tax system that favors the rich and screws the poor and starves public services of revenue during economic downturns. That’s childish, sophomoric, immature, whatever you want to call it. I won’t get a pension COLA next year because of greedy, selfish, and dishonest bankers who make 100 times as much as I do.

The fact we’ve had so many Republican fuckups in the White House since the 1950s isn’t because the majority of voters are conservative (they’re not) or because stupid voters are in the majority, it’s because the barefoot illiterate voters in places like Mississippi and Tennessee get more votes in the Electoral College than urban voters do.

    I’m sort of torn on the Electoral College. It works when the members vote based on the will of the voters in their respective States, but there is no obligation for them to do so. Al Gore should have called for a recount of the entire States of Florida, Georgia and Ohio where obvious count frauds were going on, and in a national election, that should be mandatory anyway. Recount the whole State, by hand. That is why there should always be paper ballots.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @35 Sure. First, our bailouts and stimulus spending averted another Great Depression and the economy is, albeit slowly, on the path to recovery. As employment and spending rise, so will federal revenues, and at the same time, federal expenditures for things like unemployment benefits will decline, helping to narrow the budget gap. History has repeatedly shown this works better than cutting spending to balance the budget during a downturn.

    Secondly, we’re going to further narrow the deficit by reversing Republican borrow-and-spend policies that drastically increased federal spending and at the same time reducing revenues by slashing taxes for the rich. Tax rates are at an all-time low and need to be restored to fiscally responsible levels.

    Third, although I don’t agree with this, the Federal Reserve is going to cut our public debt in half by printing twice as much money. We’re already well down this path. Have you noticed that a lot of things cost twice as much as they did a couple years ago? You should be happy about this, because it’s effectively cutting everyone’s wages in half and robbing low-income senior citizens of their life savings in order to sustain Bush’s tax cuts for the rich. I’d just as soon jettison this policy, but I have no say in it, Obama’s $900 million presidential campaign was paid for by Wall Street types and not surprisingly his economic policies are being run by Wall Street types. Trust me, the debt is NOT a problem, it’s going away along with the purchasing power of my pension and your savings.

    Fourth, and on a more positive note, Obama is winding down the ultra-expensive GOP wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which will result in huge savings that will have a large impact on future deficits.

    Fifth, and not least, we’re going to ratchet Bush’s enormous increased in defense spending back to pre-Bush levels. Bush increased defense spending from $400 billion to $700 billion a year. While the savings of $300 billion a year won’t, by themselves, close a $1.7 trillion budget gap, Bush’s profligate defense spending is a contributing cause of the deficit and eliminating that spending is a necessary useful step to restoring the balanced budget that Bush inherited from Clinton.

    @48 “It works when the members vote based on the will of the voters in their respective States, but there is no obligation for them to do so.”

    No, it doesn’t work, even if the Electors respect the will of their states’ voters — which they almost always do.

    It doesn’t work because of the way it’s structured. The number of each state’s Electors is the sum of its Representatives and Senators. Because every state gets two Senators regardless of population, the small-population states — which tend to be more rural and more conservative — get disproportionately more representation in the Electoral College than populous urban states.

    A simple example will suffice to illustrate why the Electoral College is undemocratic regardless of how Electors vote.

    Alaska, with a population of 710,231, has 3 electoral votes, or one EV per 236,744 people.

    California, with a population of 37,253,956, has 55 electoral votes, or one EV per 677,345 people.

    An Alaskan’s vote for president carries 2.86 times as much weight as a Californian’s vote for president. That’s unfair to Californians and skews the complexion of our government toward the ideology of Alaskans.

    It doesn’t make sense to preserve this undemocratic system, which was created for the purpose of preserving slavery, given that slavery was abolished 146 years ago. The Electoral College should have been abolished 146 years ago, too, but that somehow was overlooked so we should do it now — better late than never.

    “We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.

    The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

    At the coming Omaha Convention to be held July 4th (1892), our men must attend and direct its movement, or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome. This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.

    The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

    When through the process of the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.

    History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

    The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

    By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.”

At one point I held out my hands next to the two and asked if they could sit down and start over in a civil conversation.
    Sen. Nieves then shouted at me and repeated his foul language and his intention to accuse and abuse Smith. Also during this tirade of abuse, Sen. Nieves held out the e-mail and LTE which Smith had composed and sent to the newspaper and to Sen. Nieves. He told Smith to take them and to take what turned out to be the police report which Shawn Bell had written when he experienced a far worse, physical abuse from the senator.
    Progressively during this totally unexpected rage, Sen. Nieves’ aides closed both the inner office door and the outer waiting room door to the Capitol halls.

    Your Tax Dollars Hard At Work

    Republicans never tire of complaining about the public debt they ran up. Here’s another example of how they wasted your money:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43.....ork_times/

    Scott Crow, 44, makes $32,000 a year working for an Austin, Texas recycling center. He also organizes anti-corporate demonstrations. It’s anybody’s guess how many millions of dollars the Bush administration’s FBI spent watching this guy, but they parked squads of agents in black SUVs across the street from his house, installed video cameras, sifted through his trash, and compiled a 440-page dossier on him — which he recently obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

    Among his other activities, Crow ran an annual training camp for non-violent protesters. The FBI infiltrated it, of course. The agents weren’t hard to spot, Crow says. They were the “burly” guys. Here’s what the undercover agents reported to their superiors: “Most attendees dressed like hippies.” I kid you not.

    Crow, it turned out, wasn’t an Al Qaeda sleeper agent. He didn’t fly any airplanes into buildings. The FBI tried to nail him on tax charges — shades of Richard Nixon! — but the IRS brushed them off, telling the agents that Crow didn’t make enough money to bother auditing his return. The guy, it seems, paid his taxes. Some terrorist.

    Next time you hear a Republican whining about government spending, just hand him a bill for the cost to taxpayers of the GOP’s useless 8-year surveillance of a guy who did nothing more than eat veggie burgers and get arrested for trespassing.

    And this is Walesa’s real problem with Obummer…

    When you take a shit, assuming you know to drop your drawers before doing so, do you wipe before or after crapping? Idiocy at your level is kind of fascinating, so I have to ask such questions.

    And I will add cudo’s to Roger, for being the only one at this site who even attempts to respond to “How is this massive debt going to be paid”.

    However
    I will remind you all that it’s easy to say the buzz words “Tax the rich”, but Bill Gate’s entire estate (if taxed at 100%)would not fund the debt payment of the US for more than 15 days. So your Tax the rich argument does not even begin to solve Obama’s spending spree.

    Yeah, back at you Michael. This is the same leftist Dupnik’s who was a hero of the HA moronic crew using daily kooks tv for a Jared Loughner thread. The problem was as the data appeared we find out Loughner is a lefty. Dupnik’s crew assumed the marine was part of the pot ring so they did their police thing.

    Went to his house using code 11 but they were code 3. No it was code 2. No he fired his gun. No it was on safety. No they sealed the indictment after it happened. No they let him bleed to death. No two of his wife’s relatives and their children were killed by others breaking in…

    They went to the wrong house and found nothing wrong. Oh they found a photograph so he’s a criminal.

    So back at you Michael. Your hero Dupnik, a big lefty shot first then started the cover up. Now we have a widow and two children who lost their husband and father due to Dupnik’s stupidity.

    Way to go Libtardos!

    Looks like Joe Klein of Time is wrong again. He should stay far away from Chris Matthews. He looks like a fool each time he appears on that show.

    Bottom Line: Americans who currently serve or previously served in the U.S. military are less likely to approve of the job President Obama is doing than are those who have not served in the military, by about 10 percentage points. This approval gap occurs across age groups.

    Yet all we hear are the chickenhawks of the Republican Party. Since this poll is across the political spectrum, another HA libtardo argument EXPLODED.

    Wait for it… the Republican chickenhawk list will soon appear…

    What a dumbfuck. We weren’t even talking about him. But since the shoe fits, yeah, that loser’s really stupid too.

    “your Tax the rich argument does not even begin to solve ”

    I’ve always thought that the rich would much prefer high taxation over having their throats slit in the dark of night. It’s a social contract thing. Break it and you suffer the fucking consequences.

    “Obama’s spending spree”

    Fucktard knows who ran up the debt. This is the kind of one-note, dumbfuck troll we can do without – in more ways than one.

    Market Failure #11-002763498-030

    Super-expensive patent drugs (“as seen on TV”) are never in short supply but hospitals, doctors, and patients are finding common work-a-day drugs in increasingly short supply. Why? Because private, for-profit, drug companies would rather sell high-margin sex enhancement pills than save lives.

    Yep, you can always trust the free market to meet your needs; we don’t need no frickin’ gummint health care! Just make sure your kids don’t catch cystic fibrosis or leukemia! ‘Cause if they do, they’re dead!!!

    Funny how a “lefty” picked a DEMOCRATIC congresswoman to shoot! If Loughner is a “lefty” why didn’t he shoot a REPUBLICAN? Hmmmmm? But don’t trying arguing logic with pussybutt — he can’t process anything that makes sense.

    There goes Roger Dumb Rabbit again. It’s you who screws animals… or at least tells the world you do. Isn’t that why they call your “burrow” Animal Farm? Tim McVeigh… the Christian hater like most leftists on HA?

    This Loughner issue was already exploded Roger Dumb Rabbit. He is a leftist through and through. checksez and others saw the evidence. Of course you were virtually asleep! The last time you checked was months ago and the data has been written to the HA databaze fool’s home computer. Need more virtual oxygen tanks from Carl My Left Foot Grossman?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @112 Yeah, Dupnik is making a real ass of himself this time. His stormtroopers kill an innocent two-duty-tour Marine in the guy’s own home by pumping 60 bullets into him in front of his wife and young son and then they refuse to call an aid car for over an hour and then his department lies and covers up about what happened. The shine sure wore off that guy in a hurry, didn’t it? Dupnik is behaving like a corporate law department that knows its executives fucked up big-time (you know, antifreeze-in-the-baby-formula type of fuckup) and its company is going to get sued for millions. My guess is Dupnik’s department will pay about $5 million for this one, not counting the legal bills.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    When a trigger-happy police squad takes a citizen’s life in his own home, no amount of money can ever restore the innocent life that was taken — or public trust in that department.

    Dupnik needs to resign. All the cops who touched a trigger in that incident should resign, too, and never be allowed to work as cops again.

    Apparently Michael@115 disagrees with you Roger Dumb Rabbit. He thinks the marine got what he deserved because he was defending his house from home invaders who happened to be “SWAT” from the leftist pinhead Dupnik.

    A War That Costs $200 Billion A Year

    No, I’m not talking about some shithole third-world country. I’m talking about the War On Cancer, where prolonging your life for three more months can set you back more than $100,000 or about $1,000 a day.

    It’s just a matter of time before another flu epidemic kills millions, because there just isn’t enough profit in $10 vaccine doses. Why should drug companies save millions of lives when they can charge you $1,000 a pill to keep you going for 3 months?

    I said something deliberately provocative on This Week, so I think I’d better clarify what I meant (which I did on the show, but it can’t hurt to say it again.)

    So, what I said is that the eventual resolution of the deficit problem both will and should rely on “death panels and sales taxes”. What I meant is that

    (a) health care costs will have to be controlled, which will surely require having Medicare and Medicaid decide what they’re willing to pay for — not really death panels, of course, but consideration of medical effectiveness and, at some point, how much we’re willing to spend for extreme care

    (b) we’ll need more revenue — several percent of GDP — which might most plausibly come from a value-added tax
