bravo and thank you for the post above. if they do not like the fact our people want to protect themselves, do not trade with them. simple.

If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them; "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in," I would have done it. (Sen. Feinstein)
i would say party is irrelevant.
you forgot hope and change
but where are the Intellivisions?
the PLA more or less had access to everything through the mid 1990's - and more than likely still do today since we owe them so much money. why even hack? other than to make headlines to divert attention? what we need is more paranoia!
who you calling "you people"
and fuck you, i voted for Barr.
no i am not - i am a honkie. i thought we were cool if we insulted ourselves like Dave Chappell or Carlos Mencia
for a guy that is so awful (Bush)- the Chosen One seems to agree with a lot of his decisions - decisions that were slammed daily for eons it seems
Gitmo bad - now that i am President, i will close it hopefully in four years. i have to retract the promise to close it fast since there might be a terrorist or two lumped in there.
Iraq War bad - now that i am in charge we will be out by 2011 - oh ya Bush already set that up too. ah well, i will take credit for the victory.
Patriot Act Bad! now i am running the show, wow there are some scary people out there. i will keep it, just in case. some of my own people may want to harm me.
Deficit Spending Bad!!! good thing i showed up so i can show you honkies how it's done. my four years of spending will eclipse W's 8 years easy.
Tax cuts bad!!!! - wait a minute i was elected on that promise. instead i will repeal the tax cuts for the rich and make sure those who are not paying taxes get a refund, err investment plan check, bribe... uh uh. Biden say something about being the poorest Senator in the land.
same shit, different day if you ask me.
i would think maybe the kids should be in class learning something vs watching this coronation - not like the media won't be spamming this event for the next four years in some masturbative fashion. heck, why don't we just shut down the whole nation, not like he hasn't taken back all his changes, had his cabinet investigated for some corruption charges, or made the cover of Spiderman
wake me up when it's over - i will be at work
look at the housing bubble - over priced housing. 8 years ago my wife and i looked at buying a house. after 2 years, we built one cheaper than we could buy an existing home and fix it up. something wrong with that picture? i thought so then and still think that homes were overvalued for various reasons (greed, taxes, whatever). my house's value went up 40% in 2 years after building and so did my property taxes. there is no way in hell i can sell my house for what the state claims it is worth - especially since my area is a ghost town since our industry has been moving out of here since the mid to late 1990's due to Ohio's lust for revenues.
now the housing bubble has burst, our schools are clamoring for more money, and they cannot get it since 80% of their funds come from our property taxes. our local citizens in the country, like myself, will not vote to raise our already oppressive property tax another nickel. other areas that have built new schools have them sitting empty after a couple years because the communities are broke and cannot afford to keep the doors open. now my local system thinks they need a new facility that will effectively jack our taxes up another 20-30%. should be a fun circus to watch.
Or they could cut spending???
you must be high. we are still talking about American politicians right?
ya they have us over a barrel in Ohio... and they are always broke. my village also has a school tax on top of that. guess what, they got a 4% salary raise this year. now they say they need a new school since the neighboring school system crippled their economy with one (or what is left of their economy). crazy, Taft chased our industry out of here, and yet the schools think we have more money hidden somewhere.
err defend the parts of the Constitution that i agree with - like "free" health care, raising taxes, and whatever George Soros says.
