    Another person brain washed by weapons manufacturers to believe that they are just an eyelash away from being attacked by something or someone. Guess what bubba, if that was true your guns wiould never save you.

    Ya know, I have heard the exact same paranoid claptrap from “Gun Nuts” since the mid 70s.
    Hasn’t happened yet, has it?
    AND, it ain’t gonna happen, either!

    “rightisright,” just what would you substitute for government power? Corporate power? From your past posts, it seems you have no problem being a corporate lapdog. If there’s a distinction between unchecked government power and unchecked corporate power I can’t see it. (And you’re not too helpful in determining a soution for either.)

    Rabble-rousing. Because sometimes reasoned discourse isn’t enough.

    You might (read ARE) bet you life on that like millions before you.

    “…the liberal who thinks government will save his sorry butt and give him everything for nothing?”


    Have you ever actually met anybody who feels this way?


    At various times in my life, I’ve received government assistance: I received Social Security benefits for a while, because my father died while he had three school-age children; In college I received both grants (for which I’m grateful) and loans (which I’ve long since repaid). I’ve never received unemployment or disability payments, but I know people who have, and they’ve needed them. Should I ever need them, I’ll be glad that they’re in place, and in the meantime I’m happy to pay into the system, and am glad that my taxes go to help those who need help. You call it “the nanny state”, I call it “the safety net.”


    “It is too early for politicians to presume on our forgetting that the public good, the real welfare of the great body of the people, is the supreme object to be pursued; and that no form of government whatever has any other value than as it may be fitted for the attainment of this object.” — James Madison, Federalist Paper #45


    They cut aid to the unemployed, but I was not unemployed so I said nothing.
    They cut aid to the poor, but I was not poor so I said nothing.
    They cut aid to the elderly, but I was not elderly so I said nothing.
    They cut aid to the sick and crippled, but I was neither sick nor crippled so I said nothing.
    And when I became unemployed and poor and elderly and sick, nobody was left to speak for me.

    Maybe Sargent ought to go to one so he can see just how nuts his cartoons are.

    Sargent produces another idiotic cartoon. Not one thing at the NRA convention warrants this. May his beloved OWC camp out at his home.

    Thank you; the fact that people like you do still exist gives me hope.

    The NRA convention was a right wing lie fest.

    He IS a corporate lapdog. One of the sock puppet profiles that he’s had tucked away (create a profile now and use it several months from now) used his same form of writing and afterwards that profile started using its own style, which showed a little more intellect than what he usually writes. This leads me to belive that he’s one of those posters that gets paid $.05 per post.

    It’s the non-tax-paying CEOs at GE and other corporations sucking off the government teat who expect “something for nothing”, not folks who’ve paid into Social Security, Medicare, or retirement accounts, or even paid FICA taxes when they COULD work, but lost their jobs when those same tax free corporations shipped their jobs overseas.
