Hey Rujax: Let’s talk about unions. I have a family member who works at Ford. I live near a Boeing plant. I see dems Boeing peeples on strike. They claim they want a good wage and good benefits. I see them asking for free things my wife pays for in her union contract. I see them driving their foreign made cars to and from the plant. So why should I be so gung ho about their union position and wanting the airlines to buy American if they drive foreign cars.

@1 “I see them asking for free things …”

Would someone please explain to puddystupid that “free things” in union contracts are pay for work. We can debate how much workers should be paid for assembling cars, planes, etc. — although that’s really the province of management and union negotiators — but no matter what the final contract says the workers get it in exchange for their work. And any wingnut who thinks rank-and-file factory jobs are a cushy sinecure should get out of his swivel chair, go to a factory, and try it sometime.

Another Reason To Hate Banks

Banks are lawless. They’re run by people who will do anything to maximize profits, even break laws and/or trash communities. In most societies, people like that are branded as criminals, because that’s why they are.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/47735952/ns/business-real_estate/

Note what this article says about the degradation of public services: There are only five code enforcement officers for the entire city of L.A. Consequently, codes aren’t being enforced, and neighborhoods are going down the tube because banks refuse to maintain their properties even though the law requires them to.

Why should L.A. need even one code enforcer to keep bank-owned properties from becoming public nuisances? Is it so unreasonable to expect banks to simply be good citizens that we need to pay cops to preventing banks from committing criminal neglect of the properties they own? (And it is “criminal” neglect, because the law imposes fines for what the banks are failing to do.)

Our Republican friends would tell us to let “the market” take care of it. Market incentives, they’ll argue, are all that’s needed to motivate banks to keep up their properties — ergo, we don’t need city apparatchiks to prevent blight that drags down the value of other owners’ properties.

Yeah, right. Then why is L.A. such a fucking market failure? Because the neighborhood is black?

Maybe the solution is to pass a law that gives adjacent homeowners a right to sue people (including banks) who neglect their properties to such an extent it negatively affects the value of adjoining properties. You know, “the right to swing your fist stops where my nose starts.” And allow recovery of attorney fees.

There are plenty of energetic young law graduates who need work, so let’s put them to work suing banks who turn neighborhoods into slums. It’s a win for everybody except the banks.

At its very end, the video on Heartland Institute shows Joe Bass, its director, asking for “tax deductible” donations.

Wait a minute, how can that be? This is a political group, and political donations aren’t tax-deductible.

How do they get away with that?

5. Roger Rabbit spews:

Hey, did you notice how much Bass resembles Iran’s Ahmadinejad? He’s a dead ringer for Iran’s bomb-happy leader! He could be Ahmadinejad’s twin brother! What a strange coincidence. Or maybe Bass grew that Ahmadinejad beard and got that Ahmadinejad haircut deliberately, to send a message? Do you think? Yeah, maybe, anything is possible with these guys.

6. Roger Rabbit spews:

“On May 4, 2012 the Institute launched a digital billboard ad campaign in the Chicago area featuring a photo of Ted Kaczynski, (the “Unabomber” whose mail bombs killed three people and injured 23 others), and asking the question, “I still believe in global warming, do you?” The Institute planned for the campaign to feature murderer Charles Manson, communist leader Fidel Castro and perhaps Osama bin Laden, asking the same question. In a statement, the Institute justified the billboards saying “the most prominent advocates of global warming aren’t scientists. They are murderers, tyrants, and madmen.” The billlboard reportedly “unleashed a social media-fed campaign, including a petition from the advocacy group Forecast the Facts calling on Heartland’s corporate backers to immediately pull their funding,” and prompted Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.), to threaten to cancel his speech at the upcoming Heartland Institute Climate Change Conference. Within 24 hours Heartland canceled the campaign, although its President refused to apologize for it. The advertising campaign led to the loss of substantial corporate funding, the resignation of Institute board members, and the resignation of almost the entire Heartland Washington D.C. office, taking the Institute’s biggest project (on insurance) with it.”

Heartland Institute: Pants On Fire Liars

“In February 2012 environmentalist scientist and president of the Pacific Institute Peter Gleick obtained internal Heartland Institute documents and anonymously divulged them, together with an additional document he later claimed to have received from an unknown source, to public websites. The documents disclosed the names of a number of donors to the institute—including the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, tobacco companies Altria and Reynolds American, drug firms GlaxoSmithKline,Pfizer andEli Lilly, Microsoft, liquor companies, and an anonymous donor who has given $13 million over the past five years. Some of the documents also contained details of payments to climate skeptics and financial support to skeptics’ research programs, namely the founder of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change Craig Idso ($11,600 per month), physicist Fred Singer ($5,000 plus expenses per month), geologist Robert M. Carter ($1,667 per month) and a single pledge of $90,000 to meteorologist Anthony Watts. Payments or pledges to Carter and Watts have been confirmed by the recipients. The documents also indicated that the institute planned to provide climate skeptical materials to teachers in the United States to undercut the teaching global warming in schools. The documents also appeared to disclose Heartland’s plans for ‘Operation Angry Badger’, to be allocated $612,000 for activity related to Wisconsin’s recall elections. …

“The Heartland Institute maintained that the documents, which were first published on Desmogblog, were fraudulently acquired and declared that the last document was a fake that had been fabricated with the purpose of defaming and discrediting the institute. The documents contained the 2012 budget, a fundraising plan and board materials. The Institute asserts that one in particular of the released documents, the ‘Climate Strategy Memo’, was ‘forged.’”

and

“As of 2006, the Walton Family Foundation (run by the family of the founder of Wal-Mart) had contributed approximately $300,000 to the Heartland Institute. The Heartland Institute published an op-ed in the Louisville Courier-Journal defending Wal-Mart against criticism over its treatment of workers. The Walton Family Foundation donations were not disclosed in the op-ed, and the editor of the Courier-Journal stated that he was unaware of the connection and would probably not have published the op-ed had he known of it. The St. Petersburg Times described the Heartland Institute as ‘particularly energetic defending Wal-Mart.’ Heartland has stated that its authors were not ‘paid to defend Wal-Mart’ and did not receive funding from the corporation; it did not disclose the $300,000+ received from the Walton Family Foundation.”

The louder the Republican males hate and bash gays the louder it seems are their own self-recriminations/self-loathing against their own gayness.

Digby and David Adkins are, as usual, excellent this morning:

Time will tell if the extreme reactionary conservative backlash is the last gasp of a dying ideology, or the new vanguard of a retrograde, revanchist counterrevolution.

He witnessed this, in Ventura CA:

A roster of fiercely religious speakers captivated attendees for more than an hour through an amplified public address system, warning of government overreach, tolerance of sexual perversion and the threat of Marxism, among other things.

“We need to stop sending our children to government schools.”

“Do we want our military to stop praying in Jesus’ name?” she asked.

“No!” the crowd echoed.

Where’s Leni Riefenstahl when they need her?

@9
True dat, Mrs. R.

Seems that being in that closet can really twist your psyche (see church, Catholic) and lead to some real self-loathing, made worse by the toxic mix with self-righteousness and the need to tell everyone else how to live their lives.

12. bob spews:

@ 7

And Mary Mapes still claims the documents she allowed to be aired are genuine.

You’re a clown. What Gleick did was score a huge own-goal. It broadly expanded Heartland’s donor base.

Meanwhile, no net warming in 12 years. Since you brought up AGW and all.

13. bob spews:

@ 3 Your idiotic first sentence invalidates anything else you have to say in the matter.

@ 4 Replace “Heartland Institute” with “Moveon.org” and you could make the same point. Where would the left’s money come from if not for Soros and charitable donations used for overtly political purposes, same as you accuse the right of doing?

14. bob spews:

Keep running with that Romney trooper thing, y’all. Maybe if enough news sources pick it up it will make people forget about Obama’s perception of how the private sector is doing.

Except only MSNBC shilled about it.

Wasn’t it helpful for Obama to provide Romney cover for a non-issue, by scheduling a news conference so that the world could see the greatest 2012 own-goal by a Democrat? It was a bicycle kick right up his own ass. Absolutely priceless.

15. bob spews:

Obama’s got a jobs plan? Is this different from the old jobs plan? The one that Joe Lieberman said wouldn’t provide bang for the buck? The one that’s paid for by raising taxes even though people like Larry Summers and Bill Clinton think that tax increases to increase revenue are not a good idea?

Or is the 2012 Obama jobs plan merely to hire people to work on his campaign, like the 100 people he had working in WI along with all those other people working on the recall campaigns?

Is his jobs plan different from all those jobs-related bills passed by the House, the ones Harry Reid won’t even bring to the floor in the Senate?

There’s just so little time in a 30 second ad for anything but empty platitudes for The One. Although those platitudes DID help him a ton in 2008.

16. bob spews:

Memory check:

But there is one feature Obama doesn’t emphasize.

Zandi said his job-creation figure only applies to 2012.

“Beginning in 2013, and certainly into 2014, the plan is a drag on the economy because the stimulus starts fading away,” he said. “So by 2015, the economy is in the same place as now, as if there were no jobs package.”

Also, Zandi said, his forecast does not leave any room for a new recession. If that happens, all bets are off.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/24/obama-jobs-plan_n_978956.html

Take a look around and it’s apparent, at least to me, so far, that the jobs plan is the same one that failed in the Senate last year.

Even if that plan passed, it would have limited and temporary effect. Using Zandi’s own words, if recession occurs, ‘all bets are off’. Aren’t we threatened with recession in the next few months? With a short-sighted jobs bill that even some of Obama’s own party don’t think will work, how does he think he’ll get any traction?

This isn’t about creating jobs. This is about TALKING about creating jobs for a campaign ad, rolling out now.

17. bob spews:

“… the plan is a drag on the economy….”

Felt that deserved to be seen as a standalone comment, because it’s important.

Bub’s relentless screaming of the right-wing talking points du jour, above, over and over without regard to anyone engaging him illustrates quite clearly he is only here to distract, annoy, deceive.

There is nothing to be gained engaging him – he is a bad-faith actor, just as puddles is, a dishonest shill for people who basically want to extract every last dollar from every person they can – people who’d like to pick the bones of essentially every reader of this blog, for example.

So what?

“Where would the left’s money come from if not for Soros and charitable donations used for overtly political purposes, same as you accuse the right of doing?”

I don’t know if Soros deducts his political donations — I don’t have access to his tax returns. I don’t. If you do, you’re jail bait.

25. Roger Rabbit spews:

@15 I thought “jobs plans” where the private sector’s responsibility? Weren’t corporations and the rich going to create jobs if we gave them tax cuts? We gave them tax cuts. Where are the jobs? If they don’t cough up some jobs soon, maybe we should revoke those tax cuts.

Roger Rabbit’s Book Reviews

I just got home from my regular Saturday afternoon foray to the public library, and I’m here to tell you about the treasures I brought home with me today.

“At Last,” by Edward St. Aubyn

I was turned on to this guy by a book review in a magazine I found laying around in the veterinarian’s office while waiting to get my clap shot. (My day job is perpetuating the lagomorph order.) The reviewer said this English author, who writes about the British upper crust in the manner of F. Scott Fitzgerald, is not nearly as well known or read in the States as he deserves to be, because his writing is so good it transcends the subject matter. So I thought I’d give him a try. This novella encompasses one day in the life of a dysfunctional Upper Cruster at his late dysfunctional mother’s funeral. I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds like there’s something there to work with, in terms of plot, action, and introspection. I wouldn’t have thought of it, if I were trying to write a short novel. (I’m more of a Watership Down type of writer, as you can see in these comment threads.)

Tiny Homes, Simple Shelter by Lloyd Kahn

This book is timely as we stand on the threshold of new-era Hoovervilles as a result of following Republican economic policies for 30 years. It’s mostly a picture book and offers a smorgasbord of homes “under 500 square feet” (back cover blurb). What I especially like about these designs is the flexibility they offer; if the more permanent materials shown in the book are incompatible with your budget you can substitute cardboard from discarded supermarket produce boxes and plastic sheeting. There should be something here within every displaced worker’s means. For ultimate lifestyle downsizing, of course, you can always go with a sleeping bag under a bridge. The constructions depicted in this fascinating book are a couple of rungs higher up the socio-economic ladder, but not such huge ones as to be beyond the resources of anyone who still has an unemployment check coming in.

The Lyncher In Me: A Search For Redemption In The Face of History by Warren Read

This book is about the infamous 1920 lynching in Duluth, Minnesota of three black circus workers who were accused of raping a teenager. A medical examination the next day showed the girl had not been assaulted or raped but that didn’t stop the mob from carrying out its grisly work, which in a larger sense probably as a manifestation of the community’s anger directed against black workers migrating north who were perceived as taking jobs away from white workers. The men were dragged out of jail while policy stood idly by. A few years ago the city of Duluth sought to atone for the lynching by erecting a memorial to the victims featuring bronze statues of the three lynched men. The author stumbled across an old article that implicated his own great grandfather as one of the lynchers, and in this book he grapples with the stain on his family’s past. Author Read is a teacher who has participated in the Bellevue Parks & Community Services Cultural Diversity Program’s forum called “Conversations about Race & Culture.”

How do you know DUMMOCRAPTS are lying over Wisconsin… they dropped the $$$ advertising imbalance arguments once the truth came out…

Katherine Cramer Walsh, a UW-Madison associate professor of political science, said the relative parity in fundraising was surprising, especially in light of a provision in state law that allows the targets of a recall to raise unlimited money between the time a recall drive is initiated and the time an election is called. That provision helped Walker raise millions more than he could otherwise. Through April, his campaign had raised at least $22.8 million, smothering his Democratic rivals.

Amazing story. Of course DUMMOCRAPTS want to focus on advertising… well they spent their wad earlier and then they complain! So where did all that DUMMOCRAPT money go if they didn’t spend it? It sooths the leftist egomaniacs into believing their irrighteous actions was smothered by conservative advertising spending. It fits DUMMOCRAPT ideology to a tee.

57. Puddybud spews:

Where is the Friday Night Funny story about DUMMOCRAPTS leaking national security secrets?

We turn now from Syria to the heart of the nation’s capital and a firestorm today as Republicans claim the White House has been leaking national security secrets to the press to make President Obama look good. But Democrats joined Republicans in saying, “Enough, these leaks must stop.” – Diane Sawyer

Diane, Obummer must look good to the US audience, so the leaks come more frequent now!

Diane – You have to remember all past leaks before 2009 were always designed to harm President Bush. The NYSlimes was always happy to oblige and gleefully print each leak even if it meant hurting national security. The Slimes never cared from 2001-2008.

Like an undercover at the Montlake??? LOL!

My, my! So this is how a right wing idiot like you believes the FBI should carry out their duties rather than catch the crazy religious Army Major shrinks before they go postal on the soldiers in the canteen.

Heh.. Too funny for words.

Which union is it by the way??

It must not have much bargaining power. Compensation is negotiable dumbass. Shit you ought to know that. You brag ad nauseum about your perks.

60. Puddybud spews:

“The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive.” It’s always his?

And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of my war against al Qaeda, even as I continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Why didn’t the Friday Night Funnies Purveyor skip over Bill Maher getting his ASS handed to him by an educated economist last night?

Oh da pain, da pain!

Bill Maher farted – “This is where the Republican Party is. And, you know what? Corporate profits as a percentage of GDP are higher than ever. How can he be destroying capitalism? They’re eleven percent. This is the highest since World War II.”

Dr. Dambisa Moyo There is an idiot on TV… So here we go…

“But there’s two ways to make profit, right? The problem’s that there’s two ways to make profit. Profit equals revenue minus costs.”

Her credentials:

B.S., Chemistry – American University in WA., D.C.
MBA in Finance – American University in WA., D.C.
Masters in Public Administration – Harvard University – Kennedy School of Government,

Ph.D. in Economics – St Antony’s College, Oxford University

Butt the fun continues…

“You can either reduce costs or raise revenues. And in this case, the reason why everybody is up in a tizz correctly is that companies have been cutting costs quite aggressively, amongst them labor costs, and amongst them higher unemployment. And that’s why I think there’s a schism between that kind of discourse between the Republicans.”

So here’s Maher, the dumbest in the room response

“But you don’t think Obama is purposely trying to destroy capitalism?”

Wait for it…

“No I don’t, but I just think it’s a bit more nuanced than what you see.”

Bill ain’t into nuance. He’s a blooming idiot.

So Puddy asks how did his producers miss this, unless they saw a highly intelligent African woman and immediately thought, wow I bet she drinks the Obummer kook-aid. Let’s put her on.

What is the nuance? Don’t remember this? Well Romney reminds of it…

“President Obama is transforming America into something very different then the land of the free and the land of opportunity.”

Obummer said he wants to transform our system, and to transform, you must destroy what was before. And destroy he is and the economist sees it!

Bill Maher is such a moron. Loved by HA leftists everywhere.

@49 Hmm, this is interesting:

” … Spokane County began a seven-year fight … battling public records requests all the way to the state Supreme Court, where it lost decisively last fall.

This week’s settlement is said to be the third-largest public records settlement in the nation’s history.”

(From John Roskelly’s website)

Roger Rabbit Commentary: So what would that make the $225,000 that King County handed to Stefan Sharansky to settle his bullshit public records lawsuit? Fifth largest? Tenth? And did the fact King County has a Republican prosecutor have anything to do with this egregious cave-in?

Most Expensive Divorces

A quick search failed to turn up a list of most expensive public records settlements, but up popped a list of most expensive divorces. In case you’re curious, our old friend (emphasis on “old”) Rupert Murdoch is the all-time champ; it cost him $1.7 billion to get rid of wife #2. He may have thought it was worth it; 17 days later he married a woman 38 years younger than him. Arms merchant Adnan Koshoggi is No. 2 on the list; he paid $850 million to dump his wife #2 for a 17-year-old. He must have thought it was worth it, too, but he may regret it now; she went and got fat on him. Britain’s Bernie Ecclestone is No. 3; I’m gonna skip over him. No. 4 is Seattle’s own Craig McCaw, who dropped $460 million to ditch his college sweetheart and marry an attractive younger businesswoman and diplomat. Right behind him in the No. 5 spot is Mel Gibson, who forked out $450 million. By comparison, The Donald paid only $25 million to send Ivana packing, making him look like quite the savvy negotiator, which may help to explain how a serial bankrupt manages to stay in business. Do you see a pattern here? For people with more money than they know what to do with, shopping for a new wife is like trading in an old car.

Yet Another Reason To Hate Banks

Okay, I got sidetracked with my last couple of comments, so let’s get back to business.

Credit is dirt cheap, but that doesn’t mean us ordinary shmucks can get cheap credit. (Well, you ordinary shmucks; I’m debt-free and don’t need credit.) It doesn’t work that way in our rigged and gamed financial world.

“As interest rates have been dropping to new lows seemingly by the week, American companies have been taking advantage of the cheap borrowing costs, but consumers have been largely left on the sidelines. … ‘The big beneficiaries have been the corporations,’ Mr. Yardeni said. ‘They have been raising money they don’t even need.’”

http://www.cnbc.com/id/47746488

Meanwhile, a homeowner who wants to refinance a 6% or 7% mortgage at today’s 3.8% rate can’t get loan approval. It isn’t necessarily about homeowners being underwater; a bank refinancing a mortgage it already owns isn’t taking on new mortgage risk. In fact, refinancing at a lower interest rate reduces the bank’s default risk because the lower payment will make it easier for the borrower to repay the loan. The reason banks won’t finance older higher-interest mortgages is obvious: They make more money from a 6.5% loan than from a 3.8%, especially when their own borrowing costs are next to nothing.

73. Roger Rabbit spews:

I’m well aware, of course, that companies are borrowing huge amounts of money for practically nothing. They’re not using it to expand their businesses or hire new employees. (And why would they if customer demand isn’t there?) They’re making acquistiions or, in many cases, buying back their own distressed stock. Where this ultimately leads is there’ll be no public ownership of corporations after all the stock has been bought back. But what happens to a corporation when it no longer has shareholders? Who owns it then? Can a corporation own itself by buying back all of its shares? If so, who has the legal power to control that corporation? Its executives? Who, then, are their bosses? In this scenario, do boards and execs become powers unto themselves, answerable to no one? These are good questions to ponder.

And as corporations continue borrowing all that zero-interest money the Federal Reserve is printing keep in mind who’s paying for the money-printing. Us, the hoi polloi, because expanding the money supply without expanding production and consumption brings inflation. The Fed tells us inflation is a “low, low” (“buy TODAY!”) 2 percent. But when you’re getting paid 0.1 percent on your bank account the inflation rate is 20 times the return on your savings. I’m not sure even Weimar Germany saw inflation that bad.

The next time Ben Bernanke starts sounding like he might float a QE3, you should write your congressman and scream to high heaven, because you’re being ripped off. You’ll never see a dime of the billions flowing from the Fed’s lending window into banks, even in the form of a loan you have to pay back. On the other hand, you will see your 0.1%-a-year savings get devalued even further.

It’s a cynical game the Masters Of The Universe (TM) are playing — and you’re the predetermined loser. And that banker who smiles at you as he slams the lending window shut? Well, Republican congressmen smile at you, too. But that smile is all you’re gonna get from them.

Roger Rabbit’s Black Hole Theory of Money And Credit

The worldwide financial crisis has an ethereal quality to it. When you look around the same buildings, highways, bridges, factories, etc., are still there. The only thing that’s physically changed is our workers aren’t producing as much stuff and there aren’t as many commuters on the roads. Nothing really has disappeared except electronic blips on computer hard drives, representing dollars, that 99.99999999999% of us never see. How is it, then, that those computer blips can bring the world’s factories, shipping lines, and car dealerships to a screeching halt? It’s as weird as trying to comprehend the Higgs Boson. Another thing I wonder about is, if central banks can create money out of nothing simply by tapping keystrokes into a computer (or however it’s done), then why couldn’t the universe with all its matter and energy have created itself out of nothing, too? Physicists are beginning to tell us it could have, and in fact, some of them believe it did. And if there’s an ending to the physical universe — and why not? — then isn’t it logical that all that electronic money will simply disappear whence it came … from nothing and back into nothing? I oughta get a Nobel Memorial Prize In Economics for this. Even Milton Friedman couldn’t think of it, or he would have said so.

78. Roger Rabbit spews:

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found it strange that a car dealer would give me something as solid and physical as a shiny new car in exchange for something as flimsy and ethereal as electronic blips on a computer hard drive. I think I’d rather have the car.

In this day and age when you don’t even get a printed stock certificate from your stockbroker (not that it’s worth anything; you can’t eat it or drive around in it), it’s also difficult to wrap my mind around the idea of trading “money” for “stock” in order to get more “money” labeled as “dividends” and “capital gains.” But that’s pretty easy. I’m simply trading electronic blips on one computer hard drive for different electronic blips on another computer hard drive, so it doesn’t feel like I’ve giving someone as tangible as a driveable car in exchange for something as ethereal as bookkeeping entries in a money market or brokerage account. This whole concept of money is a bit like particle physics: You can’t see it but you can feel its gravitational effects, and that’s really the only way you know it’s there.

How many mussel shells does anyone need? But that’s sort of like asking how many stock blips does anyone need? Yet with mussel shells, any are too many, but with stock blips you can never have enough. Strange how that works.

82. Roger Rabbit spews:

@79 What facts? You’ve never posted any.

83. Roger Rabbit spews:

You want facts, puddystupe? Here are some FACTS for ya:

Obama kept the Great Recession from becoming another Great Depression.

Obama killed Osama bin Laden and four of the five other top leaders of Al Qaeda (and is working on the fifth).

Obama turned around an economy that was bleeding jobs into one that’s gaining jobs.

Obama enacted the first comprehensive health care reform in 50 years — a goal that eluded 10 presidents before him. “That’s not reform!” you claim? Tell that to the person who was denied insurance because of a pre-existing condition or the college student who was kicked off his parents’ health insurance at age 21, and see if you can get them to vote for the GOP’s “same old, same old.”

Obama improved food safety, although that wasn’t hard to do, because there wasn’t any under the previous administration. Notice how much rarer mass food recalls and mass outbreaks of e.coli have become?

Our country isn’t torturing people any more (as far as we know). Oh, but wait, maybe you thought that was a good thing. Some of us didn’t. Morality aside, there’s the practical consideration that if we do it to others, that makes it easier for others to do it to our troops and citizens who get captured or taken hostage. All they have to say is, “You guys do it, so why shouldn’t we?”

We’re attacking Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan, with or without that country’s permission, as Obama promised during the 2008 debates.

Social Security still hasn’t been looted by Wall Street or dismantled by rich white males in Congress who don’t need Social Security.

We have a federal consumer protection agency now. Your party has promised to dismantle it so banks can resume ripping off consumers unhindered.

Obama has enacted credit card reforms that protect consumers from predatory bankers.

Robosigning foreclosure fraud on a gigantic scale was brought to a halt and banks were forced to stop lying to courts.

This administration hasn’t killed any Space Shuttle astronauts, but it did kill Dubya’s extravagant Mission To Mars.

Obama’s stimulus helped save some public services in local communities during the Great Recession’s darkest hours, and kept the unemployment rate from soaring into double-digits.

Obama’s support for programs like extended unemployment benefits, food stamps, and CHIPs has help alleviate human suffering while the economy writhed in laissez-faire’s latest (and by no means first) implosion.

Obama helped our European allies and the Libyan people get rid of the guy who ordered the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, who is now taking his well-deserved dirt nap instead of luxuriating in an Arabian seaside villa.

Obama is bringing our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and meanwhile no new wars have started on his watch.

He has accomplished all this, and more, despite a Congress dominated by a party whose vision for America is forcing his administration to fail — an endeavor in which they, themselves, have failed miserably.

And you, putz, are a miserable excuse of a human being and a failure of an American citizen for shilling for that party. The “bummer” is you and your ilk.

Why do you ASS/U/ME it was copied? I wrote it off the top of my head.

“How about that unemployment never going over 8% with the Porkulus bill?”

A summary of my answer is that Keynes was right and you’re wrong about what government should do in a recession.

“How about those lost housing starts?”

Are you referring to the apartment building boom now underway?

“How about those lost $Billions to Government Motors?”

Why don’t you put that question to Michigan voters on November 6? And also ask voters all across the U.S. whether it was worth approximately $20 billion of taxpayer money to save an iconic American industry and 500,000 jobs? Your party said no. My party said yes.

“How about those high gas prices?”

Does it make you nervous that they’re dropping dramatically right before the election? And although presidents normally have little or no influence on world oil prices, this time Obama deserves some credit because his diplomatic efforts to avoid a war with Iran have succeeded in cooling tensions enough that markets have taken off most of the estimated $25/bbl “Iran fear premium” — WTI crude has dropped from over $105 to a little over $80.

“How about hijacking Medicare for Obummercare?”

I haven’t noticed any change in my Medicare benefits.

“How about spending $1MMMM (that’s a trillion dollars leftist morons) paying off his bundlers like his buds at Solyndra?”

As I’ve posted before, I think the market, not the government, should choose which technologies to bring to market. On the other hand, government funding of basic research and to launch new technologies and industries (see, e.g., the space program and the many products and companies it spawned) has long been accepted as an important contributor to our economic progress. Generally speaking, government’s role is to do those things that are important to the economy but which private business can’t or won’t do because those activities aren’t profitable or require a scale of resources that only government has. Solyndra, it seems to me, falls into a gray area between these poles. It was a judgment call that didn’t work out. Historically, our country became as economically successful as it
is because our system encourages risk-taking and is tolerant of failure. Would you shut off all government funding that might propel our economy to new heights because you’re afraid the taxpayers might lose some money now and then?

“How about bowing to the Saudi king?”

BFD.

“How about saying the private sector is doing fine?”

BFD.

“And you, Roger DUMB Wabbit, are a sad sacl of a miserable excuse of a human being and a failure of an American citizen for supporting and shilling for DUMMOCRAPTS.”

I admit the Democrats aren’t perfect. Unfortunately, the only alternative was the Republicans, which speaks for itself. As a hard-working, taxpayer, and patriotic American citizen WHO FOUGHT IN A WAR FOR THIS COUNTRY (did you?) I determined that preferring the Democrats to the GOP was a no-brainer. The GOP has had 50 years to convert me to their side and hasn’t done it. Why? Because they’re such miserable failures.

It’s a no-brainer because if you look at the FACTS you find that Democrats created more jobs, GDP grew more, personal income grew more, and — not least — stocks went up more under Democrats. You also find that what Republicans excelled at increasing spending, deficits, and debts much faster than Democrats.

I ask myself how you possibly can support as bad a party as the GOP and I have to chalk it up to a combination of stupidity and ignorance.

“Pills that have been a staple in some college and graduate school circles are going from rare to routine in many academically competitive high schools ….

“Observed Gary Boggs, a special agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration, ‘We’re seeing it all across the United States.’ …

Golly Roger DUMB Wabbit, that Alternet list seems to preclude anything you wrote here. Butt, I won’t directly say you plagiarized it like I saw from the crazed databaze dealer or recently from rhp6033 rewriting a wikipedia article. So I decided to check the Roger DUMB Wabbit BULLSHITTIUM post!

Obama kept the Great Recession from becoming another Great Depression.

So? As for standard nabob knob slobbering nattering about what Obummer didn’t do wrong, regarding that tired reprise of Great Depression that didn’t happen, let’s discuss what Obummer and other useless idiots such as yourself and the HA leftist pinheads who still support him have done. Obummer and other useless idiots in the slobbering libtard press hijacked TARP from President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson and gave it to themselves, proudly taking credit for averting a depression that NEVER happened. Obummer:” I did this and I did that” See post #60. Now why is that Roger DUMB Wabbit?

Obama killed Osama bin Laden and four of the five other top leaders of Al Qaeda (and is working on the fifth). Oh you mean killing all those innocent civilians in the process? Hmmm…? Didn’t we have to apologize the other day for killing another 18 innocents. Wait a minute… We forgot this…

And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of my war against al Qaeda, even as I continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Yeah he used all the infrastructure put into place by GW Bush and the info gotten by interrogation techniques approved by Bush and proved very successful!

Obama turned around an economy that was bleeding jobs into one that’s gaining jobs.

So? High paying jobs? Remember almost half of the 22.7 million jobs claimed by Clinton were minimum wage jobs. I posted this before but being as memory deficient as you are you just copy the standard Obummer and gang directive. And We see from the BLS many of those jobs are replacements for the ones lost when he took over the economy. Remember Debbie Wasserman Schultz said you guys own the economy… And lately it’s been a real doozy!

Obama enacted the first comprehensive health care reform in 50 years — a goal that eluded 10 presidents before him. “That’s not reform!” you claim? Tell that to the person who was denied insurance because of a pre-existing condition or the college student who was kicked off his parents’ health insurance at age 21, and see if you can get them to vote for the GOP’s “same old, same old.”

Really? Why in the latest polls from CBS/NY Times CNN/Opinion Research & Rasmussen more people want it repealed? Now over 50% and climbing

Obama improved food safety, although that wasn’t hard to do, because there wasn’t any under the previous administration. Notice how much rarer mass food recalls and mass outbreaks of e.coli have become?

You see Roger DUMB Wabbit… Puddy always checks out your BULLSHITTIUM So I looked at Bush’s last year… Just check a guvmint web site.

2007 – 58 recalls
2008 – 54 recalls
New law passed 2010
2011 – 89 recalls
2012 – 21 So far.

Our country isn’t torturing people any more (as far as we know). Oh, but wait, maybe you thought that was a good thing. Some of us didn’t. Morality aside, there’s the practical consideration that if we do it to others, that makes it easier for others to do it to our troops and citizens who get captured or taken hostage. All they have to say is, “You guys do it, so why shouldn’t we?”

Noam Chomsky big time DUMMOCRAPT said

If the Bush administration didn’t like somebody, they’d kidnap them and send them to torture chambers.

If the Obama administration decides they don’t like somebody, they murder them.

We’re attacking Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan, with or without that country’s permission, as Obama promised during the 2008 debates.

Oh you mean killing all those innocent civilians in the process? Hmmm…?

Social Security still hasn’t been looted by Wall Street or dismantled by rich white males in Congress who don’t need Social Security.

So? More pablum from the pukemeister himself!

We have a federal consumer protection agency now. Your party has promised to dismantle it so banks can resume ripping off consumers unhindered.

Oh really?

Or this in the Huff Po…

Oh you mean Dodd-Frank? The reason George Soros took all of his money out of America because he would have to declare how he spends his money to forment socialism and political unrest? He doesn’t want Dodd-Frank regulations to manage his hedge funds. Sen. Richard Shelby called George’s hypocrisy BULLSHITTIUM “It appears that Mr. Soros talked up financial reform only to sell it short. Don’t be surprised to see his fellow Wall Street financiers follow suit.”

Obama has enacted credit card reforms that protect consumers from predatory bankers.

Oh really? Let’s see retroactive interest rate hikes, late billings, retroactive interest rate hikes, misapplication of payments was changed but the DUMMOCRAPTIC Congress was bought off by the credit card companies for real reform DUMB Wabbit.

Robosigning foreclosure fraud on a gigantic scale was brought to a halt and banks were forced to stop lying to courts. YEah HAMP was a real success NOT!

This administration hasn’t killed any Space Shuttle astronauts, but it did kill Dubya’s extravagant Mission To Mars. Bush didn’t kill any astronauts either. Butt coming from you, a prince of sick sayings (see other leftists on HA to determine the king of sick sayings)

Obama’s stimulus helped save some public services in local communities during the Great Recession’s darkest hours, and kept the unemployment rate from soaring into double-digits. Yeah unemployment was 10%!!!! Did you forget this Roger DUMB Wabbit? And what is the U6 rate Roger DUMB Wabbit?

Obama’s support for programs like extended unemployment benefits, food stamps, and CHIPs has help alleviate human suffering while the economy writhed in laissez-faire’s latest (and by no means first) implosion.

So? What has it done for poverty in America since he took office? People in poverty is up!

Obama helped our European allies and the Libyan people get rid of the guy who ordered the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, who is now taking his well-deserved dirt nap instead of luxuriating in an Arabian seaside villa.

Obama is bringing our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and meanwhile no new wars have started on his watch.

So? As you wrote BFD!

He has accomplished all this, and more, despite a Congress dominated by a party whose vision for America is forcing his administration to fail — an endeavor in which they, themselves, have failed miserably.

He had total control of Congress until Jan 2011. Real Americans removed that control from Obummer when they realized he was a total rank amateur!

And you, DUMB Wabbit, are a miserable excuse of a human being and a failure of an American citizen for forgetting facts. Too bad you are a useless mouthpiece for the standard DUMMOCRAPTIC Alinsky playbook tactics. You should be ashamed of yourself but everyone knows when in feral mode you are a real IDIOT!

Looks like puddy had to google “rhetoric” to come up with his retort – sad really.

He used the second on the google list that I get, from ‘dictionary.reference.com’

Were he to have used a more accepted source, Mirriam-Webster, he’d have gotten:

1: the art of speaking or writing effectively: as
a : the study of principles and rules of composition formulated by critics of ancient times
b : the study of writing or speaking as a means of communication or persuasion

Even wikipedia schools puddy:

Rhetoric is the art of discourse, an art that aims to improve the facility of speakers or writers who attempt to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations.

Seem puddy is not a discerning dictionary user.

But still, puddy – don’t get discouraged – keep reading!

So at 102 and 109, puddy demonstrates that he can google ‘MLM’

Good puddles (pats on head, figuratively), good job!

However, you seem to continue to find my original point elusive. There’s something about that very, very concrete thinking of yours that’s getting in your way, I think.

112. Puddybud spews:

No you are a dickhead who tries to ram words through using the secondary definitions. I correct that fallacy.

116. Liberal Scientist is a a dirty fucking hippie spews:

No you are a dickhead who tries to ram words through using the secondary definitions.

Hmmmm. So I have Mirriam-Webster and wikipedia on my side.
Here’s The Google:

rhet·o·ric/ˈretərik/
Noun:

The art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing.

This is from Stanford University, and is the definition provided by a number of notable practitioners:

Plato: Rhetoric is “the art of winning the soul by discourse.”

Aristotle: Rhetoric is “the faculty of discovering in any particular case all of the available means of persuasion.

Cicero: “Rhetoric is one great art comprised of five lesser arts: inventio, dispositio, elocutio, memoria, and pronunciatio.” Rhetoric is “speech designed to
persuade.”

Quintillian: “Rhetoric is the art of speaking well.”

Francis Bacon: Rhetoric is the application of reason to imagination “for the better moving of the will.”

George Campbell: [Rhetoric] is that art or talent by which discourse is adapted to its end. The four ends of discourse are to enlighten the understanding, please the imagination, move the passion, and influence the will.

A. Richards: Rhetoric is the study of misunderstandings and their remedies.

This from Oxford Dictionaries:

the art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing, especially the use of figures of speech and other compositional techniques.

You have dictionary.com on your side.

Roger DUMB Wabbit in feral mode admits he’s a unapologetic libtard! So how does does this rhetoric explanation jibe with the DUMB Wabbit? So I post it again

Rhetoric is the art of discourse, an art that aims to improve the facility of speakers or writers who attempt to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations.

He doesn’t inform or persuade unless you are a leftist idiot who drinks kook-aid every day. He didn’t provide any links and when I displayed the Alternet commentary, he claimed it was off the top of his head.

Links? MIA as always from Wabbit’s prose.

Fool? Yes you are Lib da schmuck!

Look at CNN giving a pass to Obummer national security leaks…

“Everything you were discussing with him with regard to the leaks investigation, yes, there is bipartisan outrage about it, about all of these leaks, but he is the one driving the idea that it is political, that it is to help the President, that it is from the White House” – Dana Bash CNN

“By the way, he wouldn’t say, No, I don’t think the President would do that. I don’t think the President would purposely. I mean, I gave him a chance and he said, I don’t, I don’t really know what the President knows and doesn’t know, which I thought was kind of. Usually you kind of give the President a pass on leaking confidential stuff.” – Candy Crowley CNN Really Candy? He’s trying to make himself look good and now Congressional DUMMOCRAPTS are upset.

Where does Candy stand now when the original claim of Bush/Cheney leaked Valerie Plame which we now knows is a blatant bald face lie? It was DUMMOCRAPT Richard Armitage!

In 1998, Armitage signed “The Project for the New American Century” letter (PNAC Letter) to President Bill Clinton.

131. YLB spews:

She isn’t interested

Doesn’t have to be interested in anything..

Just answer the question.

Which union is it?

132. Roger Rabbit spews:

@96 “his policies stopping the pipeline from being built”

Bullshit. The pipeline not only is going to be built, but will be completed on the original schedule. The only thing changed by Obama’s refusal to cave in to the hasty and peremptory permit approval demanded by grandstanding House Republicans was the route.

“killing tens of thousands of great paying jobs”

In view of the FACT the Keystone Pipeline will be built on schedule, Obama’s refusal to cave in to the GOP’s environmentally irresponsible grandstanding designed “killed” no jobs whatsoever.

But even if Obama had killed or delayed the project, which he didn’t, such action would not have killed “tens of thousands” of jobs. Building the pipeline will directly create 5,000 to 6,000 temporary construction jobs, which would be partly offset by indirect job losses caused by the fact Keystone Pipeline will raise gasoline prices in certain Midwest markets; and when completed the pipeline will create only about 20 permanent full-time positions, as it is fully automated.

133. YLB spews:

If you’re man enough to post an apology

It’d surprise me.. I see only 22 instances of “I apologize” and it’s either snarky “I apologize to you for Donna” or not for anything all that significant I can see.

He stops using “I apologize” in 9/2008 and has used “Puddy apologizes” ONCE since then. Again for something trivial.

Apparently he long ago dropped any standards he set for himself in these threads.

134. Roger Rabbit spews:

@132 Delete word “designed” from 3rd paragraph; I couldn’t take it out before the edit function timed out.

135. Roger Rabbit spews:

@133 He’d better.

I’ve met Puddy in person, and I know he’s role-playing and acting in these comment threads, and is more personable and moderate in real life. In practically all instances, I take these blog comments for what they are, a saloon brawl in which we all willingly participate without much (if any) verbal restraint, behind a shield of anonymity. Nearly 100% of the time, I don’t take jibes and insults in these comment threads personally; they’re part of the game.

But this comment is different. He went to a place I allow no one to go.

I just spent a week on the east coast, asked to go there by an entire community, to help them honor their Medal of Honor hero from the Vietnam War — someone I served with. The trip exhausted me, but I had to go, and was going to show up and give that speech even if I had to be carried into the auditorium on a litter. At the end of which speech I received a standing ovation from a crowd that was 100% patriotic and nearly 100% Republican. I mention this so you understand why Puddy’s remark about throwing military medals away pushed my buttons. That guy died in the war and I would never dishonor him or any of my other Vietnam buddies by disrespecting a U.S. military medal, no matter what my political views or opinion of that or any other war might be.

I don’t know if I’ll ever meet puddy in person again. I might, because Darryl told me at last week’s Drinking Liberally (yes, I attended DL last Tuesday) that puddy has been showing up at DL occasionally.

If I do meet him again, he’s not going to have a personal interaction with me ever again, unless he posts that apology within the next 24 hours.

I’ll take a ton of shit on this blog, and dish it out too, but that comment is in a different category altogether and will be retracted or puddy’s going to have hell to pay if he ever meets me again.

136. Roger Rabbit spews:

@133 “Apparently he long ago dropped any standards he set for himself in these threads.”

There are no standards in these threads, and I don’t expect any, but I’m taking that comment out of this thread and making it personal between him and me, because of the nature of the comment and for the reasons I’ve indicated above.

Nobody fucks with my loyalty to, and support for, my fellow Vietnam Veterans. I won’t allow that under any circumstances, whether in this blog, or in private conversation or a public square. Think whatever you want of the war, but they were magnificent men, and Puddy’s remark dishonors not me but them. I’m not giving him a choice about retracting it; that’s not optional.

137. Roger Rabbit spews:

@136 (continued) If he doesn’t it changes things between us forever, and in a very personal way.

138. YLB spews:

140. Roger Rabbit spews:

These threads are raucous, which encourages uninhibited bashing, and I recognize that; but it’s been pointed out he made a mistake that has to be corrected, and now it’s up to him to do it. All he has to do is post four words and this problem goes away.

“I made a mistake.”

141. Roger Rabbit spews:

Now we’re going to find out whether he’s a big or little man.

143. Puddybud spews:

If you’re man enough to post an apology, I’ll be rabbit enough to accept it.

Apology for what Roger DUMB Wabbit? I asked if you acted like John Effin Kerry… He’s the Vietnam vet y’all look up to. You voted for him so you looked up to him.

The New York Times describes the transcript of that television interview — which it says was archived by President Nixon’s communications office and held by the National Archives — this way:

An interviewer asks Kerry, “How many did you give back, John?”

Kerry responds, “I gave back, I can’t remember, six, seven, eight, nine.”

The interviewer then notes that Kerry had won the Purple Hearts and Bronze and Silver stars. Kerry says, “Well, and above that, I gave my others.”

Facts, kryptonite to a libtard! Facts make Puddy into the big man!

144. Roger Rabbit spews:

@142 Then tell God and share that conversation with the rest of us. I’m curious about it, too.

Fake hero Xavier Alvarez lied to his fellow Californians.

He never rescued an American ambassador. He was never a Marine. Most definitely, contrary to what he told a Southern California audience, Alvarez was never awarded the Medal of Honor.

He lied, until he was caught. Now, the Supreme Court must decide whether the First Amendment protects Alvarez and other wannabes from prosecution. The consequences could stretch well beyond what lawmakers and veterans call stolen valor.

A few ingredients short of a brain. More like the whole recipe!

157. Puddybud spews:

When someone whiffs 62 times you’d think he’d crawl back into his bunker and raise the white flag. Instead he keeps plodding along hoping for one attack to stick.

169. Roger Rabbit spews:

There’s a lot about Kerry I didn’t like. Spoiled rich kid, golddigger, patrician background with no concept of what life is like for ordinary folks, a bit arrogant, and while I think the Vietnam War was a FUBAR and don’t have a problem with people who opposed it, I don’t agree with some of the things he said and I vehemently disagree with the medal desecration — here’s a guy who legitimately earned combat awards and treated them contemptuously. (That doesn’t justify the Swift Boaters’ lies about his service record, though.) I get the feeling he was an attention hound. What I possibly dislike most about him is how he stabbed his party and supporters in the back by rolling over on Ohio despite solid evidence of election theft. My feeling is that he should at least have fought for what he apparently rightfully won. Would he have been a good president? No, probably not, but Dubya was so bad almost anyone would have been better.

Your question raises a larger issue — the lousy choices we voters are given. The two-party system is broken, and frankly, the choices we’re offered by the parties perenially suck. We’re force-fed candidates who are good at pandering to the lowest common denominator, but not much else. The result is second-rate governance that at best is usually not helpful and at worst is downright harmful to We The People. You don’t get a Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, or Truman in our political system anymore. The depth to which our leader-selection process has declined was ultimately manifested in Bill Clinton being caught getting his cock sucked under the Oval Office desk by an intern. That sort of thing ought to be unthinkable, even in a messy democracy. It’s impossible to visualize Eisenhower or even Nixon (whatever his other faults) doing something like that. You bash Obama daily, but he has pulled the presidency back up from Clinton’s shenanigans and Dubya’s hooliganism, incompetence, and corruption. The only debate about Obama is how effective his policies are and whether we should try something different. That’s huge, considering how low the presidency had sunk under his two immediate predecessors, and I respect him for it. But I count myself among the tens of millions of Americans who are disgusted and disaffected with our petty leaders and dysfunctional politics. I’ve sometimes wondered whether we’d be better off under a parliamentary system where you don’t have to wait four or five years to get rid of an electoral mistake.

That’s right. This is explained in more detail @169.

Obama’s popularity has dropped among virtually every demographic group, including blacks, since the 2008 election.

Mass Shooting Of The Day (TM) #1

In another of those incidents that are so rare in the gun-happy U.S. of A., three people are dead and three are wounded at an apartment complex near Auburn University. The dead include two of the college’s football players.

Roger Rabbit Commentary: This perp shouldn’t have had access to a gun, either.

177. Roger Rabbit spews:

The NRA tells us we don’t need to regulate access to guns; all we need is stiffer sentencing for violent criminals. But a lot of times the perpetrators of mass shootings kill themselves, so they don’t do any time at all.

Wall Street Handicaps Obamacare

From Barron’s, 6/11/12, p. 19:

“Conventional wisdom at both the Bar Association and on Wall Street is that the court will uphold the law.”

Wait a minute. This is coming from the country’s best lawyers. The professional investors on Wall Street don’t bet their (or other people’s) money on blind guesses. They have the best advice money can buy. The D.C. Bar Association is run by people who are minutely familiar with how each and every justice thinks on legal issues. And both the lawyers and Wall Street money men are saying SCOTUS is going to uphold Obamacare — and the latter are betting money on it. Seems to me this might mean something.

Mass Shooting Of The Day (TM) #3

In yet another of those extremely rare mass murders that occur only 2 or 3 times a day in the gun-saturated United States, a California man shot his wife and three children today, then killed himself. He reportedly was wanted for murder in his native India.

Rabbit–
There are over 350 million guns currently in America you idiot. How are you proposing to impose the controls you desire..or are you simply rambling outta yer furry ass again??
What is you plan? How much would it cost?
Is this your idea of job creation? Like Obama, hire more government employees (Obama wants more firefighters & teachers to lower unemployment and will pay for them by raising taxes on rich guys)
More costly government bureaucracy…and the bad guys would still easily be able to get guns. But hey, make it hard for law-abiding citizens cuz you never know. Right?
Mao and Stalin would love the Rabbit. They had gun control as did most dictators. I guess if you are in charge, it’s wonderful that no one can shoot yer sorry butt. A slippery slope for more government tyranny is what your idea is.
Apparently you have an idea, but no friggin’ plan idiot.
What an idiot you are.
