One of the funniest posts from the IRS  Mess thread. Talk about people with no concept of reality

There's only two parties, genius. One is now truly leftist, and one is how JFK's party used to be, Liberal. 

You're a leftist with the party of the ideology of Leftism/statism, etc. (Democrats) 

I am a conservative/libertarian, who will support the Liberal party (the Republicans) if that's the only way to stop the Leftist party (Democrats)

Example:

If you gave a speech by JFK to college kids today, without his name on it, they'd near all guess it was written by a Republican.

MEXICO IS DOING THE SAME AND KILLING THE PRESS AND JOURNALIST

("Press Freedom: Journalist in Mexico Killed for Reporting on Drug Cartels | Human Rights First")

True Blooded Americans fly OLD GLORY the day might come soon that it will

be your last time.

("IRAN and NORTH KOREA WE ARE GOING TO TAKE DOWN THE USA obama too late i already did it.") This may soon not be so funny, as just a cartoon.)

Fort Hood the CIA and FBI Terrorism Task Force had been watching this man and

knew he was a Trader to the USA and had done acts of TREASON. Why was he not

already in jail?

What leader on earth would watch someone do acts of treason against his Nation

and not stop them on the first or second act little lone wait till they cold

heart ed Murdered many be for he put him in jail. USA Leaders if you are

lost and need a role model look to Canada.

Every 9-11 they are going to try.

September the wicked will always look to kill others Munich Germany 1972. 11 of

the ISRAELI Olympic Athletes were killed by the wicked. Special Forces sent Air

Mail to ten terrorist training PLO Bases in SYRIA and LEBANON in

response. 200 died 11 for 200 you do the math. The wicked are at war with all

that believe in Jesus Christ. Every year since they have tried or done acts of

Terror every September only the real slow in the head in government do not know,

to be ready each and every September. From the Religion of ? not Peace at a average

rate of 3 or more atrocities are committed worldwide each day all in the name

of ? islam the Religion the terrorist use.

Some will never Learn till it is too late.

The only group of wicked that kill close to this rate a year is the Drug Cartels.

Friends of Obama get away with anything right? Fort Hood Work place Bull

S... cover up.

In the hearts of every True American that has ever stepped foot on a United

Stated Military Base. These 13 Murdered Victims already have are Heart, and in our

minds We All Know They Have Clearly Earned the PURPLE HEART ALREADY.

Some of our leaders of this One Nation Under GOD need to be on trial for

TREASON.

We The People Live by are Lord GOD and "The U.S. CONSTITUTION"

NOT SOME SICK IN THE HEAD LEADERS.

"The U.S. CONSTITUTION ARTICLE III SECTION 3."

(AID OR COMFORT TO THE ENEMIES HOSTILE TO US)

(ANY ASSISTANCE RENDERED TO A FOREIGN STATE HOSTILE TO US)

(CONDUCT WHICH UNDERMINES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR ARE GOVERNMENT OR ARE

NATIONAL SECURITY)

Negotiating with terrorists act of TREASON.

GIVING ARE TAX MONEY TO OTHER COUNTRIES THAT SUPPORT TERRORIST OR TERRORIST

GROUPS ACT OF TREASON.

Many U.S. Department stores and large store chain's closings Nation Wide, this

year 2013.

Taking down are Military by WEAKEN MILITARY READINESS YET KEEPS SENDING MANY

MILLIONS OF OUR TAX MONEY TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

THIS IS OBAMA'S PLAN FOR JOBS WORKING AS HE PLANED.

MASSIVE TAX ON ALL EMPLOYERS PUTTING MILLIONS OUT OF WORK.

(CONDUCT WHICH UNDERMINES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR ARE GOVERNMENT OR ARE NATIONAL SECURITY)

What Part of this did

all Americans let anyone cut out of are hearts or are (U.S. CONSTITUTION) "The U.S. CONSTITUTION ARTICLE III SECTION 3."

MORE THEN 50 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK OR ON FOOD AID THIS YEAR 2013. AND SOME

SO CALLED U.S. LEADERS OF WHAT THE WICKED ARE GOING TO KEEP SENDING YOUR TAXES OUT OF THE COUNTRY?

Why to keep taking a piece of the pie for them self's. Too many of these so called leaders went

into office with little to nothing and leave with millions, and they think that all America is that stupid.

They must be working more for them self then for GOD and Country.

Americans the next time you vote use a Black Pen not a pencil may be your

vote will count.

Leaders that put pencils in the voting

poll-booths need to be in jail. If they will not safe guard America who

will? Pencils to vote with and the wicked call this safeguarding your

vote. Anything that can be changed or tampered with is NOT to be used in

a voting place ever this was taught to all board of elections back when

i was a Judge. Back then many a democrat did wicked things.

Responsible

for the fall of the second most powerful man in the United States of America

Dan Rostenkowski, Democrat-Illinois

Democrat

controlled and run cities are some of the highest crime places in this

country. This is sad for all that live in and around them. You can not

work for satan and GOD at the same time.

Was Jake Tapper played by White House through selective leak of just one email?

"ABC News source stands by reference to State Dept in leaked Benghazi talking points emails — White House defenders get the controversy they want"

"In the end, all the White House needed to do was get people to chase squirrels.  And at that it succeeded, via Tapper."

Naturally, the Swampland hive drones took off in pursuit of the squirrels. They are just knee jerk dupes.

The IRS and the AP scandals are smoke screens for Benghazi.  The "stand down" order to the embassy can only come from the president’s office, during times of crisis.   For anyone to assume that Obama did not issue that order is pure denial. For anyone to assume that Hillary and Obama were not in continuous contact is pure denial.  Quit playing the politics and start holding people accountable for their actions and or incompetence.  If this were Bush, the media would be screaming for impeachment hearings. Unfortunately ABC, CBS and CNN all have CEOs whose relatives hold high level positions in this administration, so the cover up is real from inside and out.  Just for the record, I am a registered independent and did a write in for the first time in my life.  Party preference has nothing to do with it.

U.S. deficit much smaller than expected

"Last month, America posted a rare monthly surplus of $113 billion for the month. That's the largest monthly figure seen in more than five years since the recession began some time in 2008."

Here comes reality again to poke holes in conservative arguments. But... but... spending!!!!

I'll bet that Bugs is unaware that JFK was both a tax cutter and a Cold Warrior. Neither philosophy would fit in the Democrat party of today. The Democrat party was taken over by Marxist radicals in the mid-1960s and has not looked back since.

@paulejb ABC reporter suggests with a very strong sense of certainty but no actual proof. I can do the same and claim the GOP are all blood sucking vampires. I too have a strong sense of certainty but no actual proof.

@RonRathbun And why exactly does Robert Gaters say he would also have ordered a stand down if he was in charge. Is he a big Liberal Democrat?

@RonRathbun Ron, do you remember - White Water?  Vince Foster (investigate by three different agencies and a Representative blowing up a pumpkin in his back yard)? How about Filegate? Wag the Dog? Travelgate? Cattle Futures (Hillary)? Jennifer Flowers?  Lincoln Bedroom gate? Pardongate? 

The list is endless.  Democrats let history take care of Bush/Cheney.  Republicans have proven that they simply cannot get in power and behave.   So we'll start on the "scandals" of Fast and Furious,  Benghazi (did you read today's emails?  Since when are 11 hearings not enough?),  the IRS, blah blah blah.   If Republicans would just let reporters do their job rather than call in Judith Miller (!), Rumsfeld and Cheney to start the scandal crap, you might be a whole lot better off.  

Independent?   "If this were Bush . . . "  I'm a registered independent too.   That doesn't make me not partisan.

@mantisdragon91 @paulejb  

Guys like Paulie - which is why we always say, don't feed the troll. You're not going to get anything out of him, except stupidity. 

Why bother? You know he's full of it. We know he's full of it. Any passerby just has to read a few posts to know he's full of it - so why bother? What can you possibly get out of it? Satisfaction? That tool won't even admit when he's wrong. 

Making a point? He won't acknowledge it. Making a stand against trolling? Again, he doesn't pay attention. 

But i'll tell you what he does get - joy, whenever he can goad you into replying to him. 

So, if your goal is to make him happy, then i completely understand - though i've no idea why you'd want to make the troll happy.

bobell, I get along great with the guy. I just don't like propaganda that is obviously propaganda. When I finally started laughing and went out and brought in the other radio, he thought it was hilarious. He couldn't wait for our relief to come in and tell them about it. The guy that relieved me had one question. "Did you have goggles on?". Now THAT was funny.

@sacredh He was lucky you didn't take the sledge to HIM.

I'm allergic to several species of popular music. I will walk out of stores, restaurants, and other establishments to avoid it if it's particularly loud and noxious. Sometimes I sneak over to the amplifier, if I can find it, and turn it down or off.  I don't inflict my own taste on others -- I even keep my office door closed for the benefit of people walking by -- and I ask the same of others.

But until now it never occurred to me to take a hammer along. Thank you, sacredh. I'll post from jail about how it works out.

Sue_N, they not only live among us, I work with some of them and I'm friends with others. A little OT, but one of the guys I was working OT with is a huge fan of conservative radio. We were in the garage working and he had the radio tuned in to one of their stations. I'd brought another radio in to replace the one in the garage because it was on it's last legs. It was in my trunk. He wouldn't change the station so I got out the sledge hammer and crushed it. I didn't smile or anything. I just destroyed it and then told him, "Didn't I tell you to put on something soothing?". He was STUNNED. Lol.

@paulejb @mantisdragon91 @Sue_N @RonRathbun And why wouldn't we? They were on the ground and getting full access. Why the rush to pull them out and invade? Was Bush and Cheney afraid the longer they stayed the weaker the case to invade Iraq got?

mantisdragon91
mantisdragon91

@paulejb @mantisdragon91 @Sue_N @RonRathbun The ones from 2003, that clearly stated that Saddam had nothing. So why the rush to invade Iraq when we had our hands full in Afghanistan? Especially since the UN inspectors were still in Iraq and getting full access to all suspected WMD sites.

@mantisdragon91 @paulejb @Sue_N @RonRathbun

What reports?

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

@paulejb @Sue_N @RonRathbun Ignoring and hiding CIA memos and reports of the 9/11 commission till after the 2004 relection for starters. Ignoring the UN inspectors reports about no WMDs in Iraq.
