    I have enough faith in the American people to believe this is not going to happen, but I voted for Ford.

    Sometimes it is necessary to negotiate with hostage takers and terrorists.

    When financial interests clash with moral principles, the interests usually win, and always have. The only way to negotiate people out of power and privilege is by threatening them with something worse.

    I remember an old cartoon: Two children in costume hold out their bags at the door and say Trick or Treat! The smiling man at the door asks, and What are you going to do if I don’t give you a treat? The two children look stricken and aghast at one another and finally answer We’d cry!

    Trick or Treat is extortion. We’ve forgotten that and turned it into a game in which no one loses. We’ve done the same with politics. Big Money will rule this country unless the people employ the power of numbers (otherwise known as democracy) to force to share the wealth and power that naturally flows into their hands.

    But the rich have learned their lessons well: don’t insult the masses, flatter them. Convince them that protecting the wealth and privilege of the great is all about ‘defending liberty’ and ‘opposing big government.’

    That’s about it.

    This cartoon could have been drawn by Rahm Immanuel.

    I’ve heard several times that Obama sticking it to the progressive wing of the Dem party was his idea, because, as Immanuel is supposed to have said, “They have nowhere else to go.”

    Just remember…that’s what LBJ thought back in ‘68

    If the Republicans came up with a younger (than McCain), less pro-business candidate, they’d be a shoe-in for 2012. It’s not too late to start working on it.

    …Okay tell me this, in what substantive way would things be any different had Obama not been elected. He has given the republicans more than they had asked for.

    I think that he is a neo-republican, and all the twirly-eyes flingling mud a vitriol at him is a smokescreen to cover his true identity. But they can stop now, the cover is blown.

    And people expected anything less from the most corrupt line of work in the known universe?

    The elected representatives are a mirror of the populace. If Dan Quayle in a dress is what they want, that’s what they’ll get. Seems like total destruction is the only solution.

    America deserves President Sarah Palin. The right deserves her because she’d be awesome and the reaction of the left would sustain our sense of humor for the rest of our lives. The left deserves her, because they need something to fuel their irrational rage. For without rage, they are nothing.

    “Found those weapons of mass destruction yet?”

    That’s really old… Besides, everybody in the world thought there were WMD’s including the dem’s in Congress & the Senate.
