Tom, one final thought before I close out. If you believe the Tea Partiers are guilty of treason, maybe you should settle in with a copy of the Constitution. Once finished you will discover the only party guilty of treason is the Democratic Party and its blatant disregard for the Constitution they swore to protect, defend and uphold. The majority of Tea Partiers want us to return to the founding document rather than continue down the path to socialism. I have always found you an interesting read, even though I continue to disagree with your very narrow perspective on the world and politics in general. A man of your education and experience should be better rounded in you opinions. Just because a conservative says something, doesn't make it wrong and the same goes the other way, just because a liberal says something doesn't make them correct. Reality is both sides have their agendas and are fairly much in lockstep. We need some thinkers and folks who will represent their constituents rather than the lobbyists and donors. I became an Independent voter because both major parties continue to say one thing and do another. The Tea Party representatives went to DC to return us to the Constitution and became entrapped in the same political jungle that has existed for longer than either of us can remember. When your fair haired folks, Obama, Pelosi and Reid, publically state over and over again that they will not negotiate or compromise, they become the obstructionists.
Well, I guess conversation with you sort of dries up........doesn't it?
CW13, I don't let the narrow minded bother me too much. I used to be that way. I had a mentor tell me in order to broaden my mind and see different sides of subjects, I should read, specifically the books folks told me not to read. I found by reading a wide variety of material, liberal, conservative and everything I could get my hands in, I learned to tell the difference between what folks want you to believe and the facts.
One of my favorite quotes came from a very strong Democrat, D.P. Moynihan "You're entitled o your own opinion, but not your own facts."
It is very sad so many of his own party cannot grasp the logic and simplicity of the statement.
Master race !!?? Very civil,Tommy. Very civil. Nam6870vet, don't let the thumbs downs get to you. You're talking to the heavy weight champ of dislikes. Consider it an honor that you're annoying these clueless liberals. Buffalo bagels?
Signed up yet, Tommy ?
Forgive me if I'm wrong but they don't intend to sell it to tourists.
Nam6870vet: Buffalo bagels. In 1980, Reagan and his cronies simply did away with an economic system that had served us well, and was responsible for all the greatness we had thus far laid claim to, and replaced it with a pyramid scheme. They knew the enormity of what they had done. They knew it wasn't sustainable. They didn't care. They still don't. He who dies with the most wins, right? Now the 1% feeds us table scraps, and tells us we'd be better served by making sure they get better meals. And Tom, things like the "master race" remark are the reason people came up with the term "ugly American".
You called a student from Germany "Master Race"!!?? What an insult. Typical stupid American response. How would you feel if she called you Untermensch.
Too bad you filled her mind with a lot of misconceptions. The party of the rich is the Democrats, the richest party in DC and those who have done the most to make themselves and contributors wealthier. The party that drove the end of slavery and the Civil Rights Amendment was the Republican party. LBJ sided with the Republicans and proceeded to twist the Southern Democrats arms until they conceded only because it was to be JFK's legacy. It is too bad the liberal arm of the US continues to rewrite history to make themselves look good. But when you look at the historical documents, you will find it has been the Democrats who have been the villains for the last century and a half. Too bad I will receive tons of thumbs down from the kool-aid drinkers among you.
