    Don’t be ridiculous. The LIghtworker can do no wrong.

    Just ask the regular commenters…Fast and Furious? Nothing. Obamacare? Nada. IRS being used as a political tool? Nothing. War on Journalism? Nothing wrong there! Benghazi? Old news. Executing US Citizens without trial or even arrest? Who did the what, now? No budget in 5 years? Who needs a budget when Congress just keeps raising the debt limit? US Constitution? C’mon, that was written by some old dead white guys like a hundred years ago!

    Get with the program, dude. You’re terminally un-hip. The commissars will be notified you know.

    I think both sides are wrong. We do have problems that need solving, right here at home.
    1—Bring our troops home and actually have a DEFENSE force.
    2—Stop paying off countries that hate us. They are not the mob and we are not that weak.
    3—Start educating our children in the way that they can learn to think and solve problems.
    4—Find ways to provide Universal Health Care without punishing the poor. And let Congress participate just like everyone else.
    5—Provide for the poor, the disabled, the mentally ill and the dispossessed.
    6—Provide for the elderly. The way Americans treat there elders is a travesty.
    7—Last, but not least, come together as a people and unite and rise up against the powers that be. The same powers that love for us to hate one another. Hello neighbor, won’t you be my friend. Can’t we find a way to respect and care about one another?
    Folks, we will either die hating one another or live loving one another. I prefer to live. How about you?

    Thank you for pointing out that the General Welfare of this country should be our number one priority.

    I have learned that people like tonight’s resident troll and the other one will always be like a jackass braying in the wind. They do not want to change even though the current system is killing them, also. Bastiat was a smart man but the world has changed, for the worse, since he wrote his tomes. Him, the Founding Fathers, Locke and others were flesh and blood men who wrote appropriately for their time. I am trying to speak appropriately for ours.

    @John Pike (& Tucci):
    To follow you prescription, John, would require that which is wofully lacking these days: Patriotism. Tucci demonstrates the spirit which informs much of conservative rhetoric, and which is the opposite of patriotism.


    They will counter with “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” Which is correct. Which is what self-government is all about. However, cons don’t think Americans are capable of managing their own government, or creating efficient and well-run institutions, and demonstrate this by sneering at and undermining those institutions at every turn. Why does anyone vote for people to head the government, when those people object to the very existence of the institutions they are chosen to oversee?

    Tucci thinks that the idea that we, making use of government institutions, should take care of those unable to take of themselves is “nanny noise” and what we really want is somebody else to take care of us when we are perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves. He quotes Bastiat to that effect. This is an insult, and Bastiat meant it as an insult.
    Well, as long as the insults French politicians flung at one another 165 years ago are somehow considered relevant, here is what Pierre-Joseph Proudhon had to say to Bastiat in 1850:
    “Your intelligence sleeps, or rather it has never been awake…You are a man for whom logic does not exist…You do not hear anything, you do not understand anything…Your are without philosophy, without science, without humanity…Your ability to reason, like your ability to pay attention and make comparisons is zero…Scientifically, Mr. Bastiat, you are a dead man.”

    Well, I think I leave those old Frenchmen to argue among themselves.

    Hardly worth addressing you, but the news in the last dew months is all about how the economy has been recovering at a slow but steady pace – which is the most responsible way to recover. The news in California, which is one of the first to fully implement Obamacare (a very modest health care system), is that it has cost less than predicted and saved more. The news from Germany – a country that’s had the same universal health system for more than 130 years – is that it’s one of the few countries around with a truly robust economy. Considering the disaster left to our country by years of deregulation, Obama’s done all right. Now if he can just quite killing people with drones and close Gitmo, he’ll be onto something.

    Well put, though coming from one of those sides, I’d say that this agrees at least theoretically with most of its principles.

    lol, yes Obama is a right winger. to the right of Nixon, lol. that’s about the best we can say for the Socialist, Muslim Interloper. Obama makes Nixon looks Communist. lol

    love these trolls. they give me untold laughs, such stupidity and outright ignorance. the ignorane alone makes my day. just thinking about how Michelle Bachmann these trolls are is manna raining down from the sky.

    too bad Obama is everything the Koch Bros want. America really is screwed, and wait till the Right wing wakes up one day and finds out. way too late as it already is. bush obama the death knell of America.

    That was a scary few days with the Obama bashing. Nice to see we are back to the usual Republican bashing.
