Easy for you to say, you're not some young guy trying to get started in a world full of piss tests, roadside "safety" checks, zero tolerance and cameras every f'n where. Most libs posting here are older guys, coasting out, not caring that they lived the high life running up TRILLIONS in debt. The debt that some 19 year old slob is going to have to work 'til he drops to try and pay back. Things are great for me personally, but I feel for the dozens of young guys I play with. And you want to spend even more. Sick, just Sick!

Kinda like saying. "I'm healthy, I guess there is no cancer".

:cry: I totally agree, i have grandkids that i am ashamed to leave this mess for. My own goal was to leave them something but its not looking good.
I'm not blaming others though. I was given chances and it hasn't happened yet.

I have kids too. I taught them to question authority, and question the media. Get the facts and be leery of anyone telling you what you want to hear. Get involved and vote. And hopefully, have good values ( not talking about the bastardized "family values"). Sure the world is tough, but you can either sit back and bitch, or go about changing it with whatever means you have at your disposal. ( Which doesn't include armed inserrection by the way. Those people are pissed because their world view is too stupid for wide support, and they would rather blame the media/government etal than face the reality of their idiocy. :P )

This is one of those things that is so crazy I can't tell if it's true or not:

TL;DR new patriots (10 million to 30 million of them) going to D.C. this Friday to drive Obama et al from office. BONUS: All taxes abolished!

I'd say if they get 10 million people there we should listen to them. Of course if you had 10 million people on your side, seems like the "peaceful solutions" would have been more effective. This is unlikely to be effective either for that matter.

You can't get 10 million people together for Free McDonalds and Natty Light Day. Certainly not some polictical horseshit.

LMAO we don't need comedy shows on TV! We have the Tea Party to entertain us! What a bunch of Botards, Operation American Spring? ROTFL...now some of the ultra-morons think this is a trap set up by Obama! This group of neurotic traitors don't even trust each other, because each little group has intentions of seizing the government and shaping it in their own vision of North Korea...now they are emptying the trailer courts of malcontents to march on their legally elected government....I wonder if they will wear their funny hats and costumes that are as outdated as their political views?

I'm hearing that american spring didn't quite reach the 30 million mark (which is about 10% of the population btw.) Weather dampened the turnout? Didn't see that coming.

Jeez. Wonder what Buena Vista county, IA needs with 2 mine resistant vehicles and 5 grenade launchers. Must get a lot of social unrest up there in Storm Lake?

Basically he is saying that it would have been better to do it outside of the tax system, but it was politically unfeasible. That law could have been so much better if there were a good faith effort on all sides to debate it. Unfortunately, that isn't the current political environment we live in. Nothing is important enough to trump ideology, at least on the right. Doesn't matter if people are dying or we're sending troops somewhere or anything. Pitiful.

So happy we at least got started on health care reform, and it is working well.
