    Duke’s had this job for a long time now. Shouldn’t it be time for him to be arrested or something? :-)

    Yeah, buddy, that’s his own hair…

    The Tea Party looked insane well before this particular debacle, but that’s never been a disqualification in politics.

    Are you kidding? Almost no one in the Washington crowd ever gets arrested. And on the off chance that someone does, their lawyers drag it out so the evidence disappears or their buddies pardon them.



    Don’t you know that politicians and their friends are more equal than others?

    Competent assassins don’t seem to target Conservatives.

    Picking up from Rrhain yesterday:
    “It seems you’ve got your terms mixed up, too: “Democracy” is a political system. “Socialism” is an economic system. Are you saying the UK isn’t a democracy? They’re certainly socialist. Their nationalized health service spends half of what we do and they get better results. Same with France.”

    Agree with pretty well all of that except the idea that the UK is “certainly socialist”. The last time we had anything approaching a genuinely socialist government was 1974-79. When Labour got in under Blair in 1997 he had already removed Clause IV from the party’s constitution, calling for the common ownership of the means of production distribution and exchange (which is what socialism is). Labour calls itself “democratic socialist” now, which is European code for “hand-wringing centre-left but not really socialist at all”, and believes in a market economy underpinned by a welfare state. The Conservative/Liberal coalition in power at present is more centre-right than centre-left, but isn’t socialist by any definition that equates even vaguely with reality.

    The NHS is far from perfect, and is moving more towards an internal market economy rather than the state-run system it has historically had, but the idea of health care being free at the point of consumption is non-negotiable for Brits, and indeed for the citizens of most other developed countries in the world.

    Perhaps if the government doles out so much money that it will have that type of effect on the economy if shut down the problem is with the size of government.

    Should we talk about his highness’ greatest embarassment- the ACA? His royal highness claims to know more about how I should live my life and spend my money than I do. The next three years are going to be a serious embarassment/setback/debacle/joke for the left side of the isle.

    I wonder how many of us on this thread can remember where we were 50 years ago when we heard about JFK? Not me, I was about 3.
