Quiz for you all - who said it

  • I attributed specific, policy based statements to the living bitch, and general principal positions to the dead one.

  • ... and I don't live in Australia. I despise both of those women for the way they have both taken strides to set back the progress of the working class as much as possible. I wonder how many Tea Partiers or Ron Paullowers could beat 8 out of 10.

      But she love tax breaks for corporations.
      I think it might be kind of funny if the Chinese try and muscle her operations and our Defence organisations are called on to back her and there is no money in the kitty for it.

      • Maybe this says more of a crappy tax code in need of reform than her.
        • she has made public request for a special northern economic zone with lower taxes.
          where a lot of her mines do or will operate.
          given the complaints by companies about the difficulty of getting labour kack if infrastructure and high cost of everything why does it need supercharging?

    • both taken strides to set back the progress of the working class

      Given that "progress" seems to mean borrowing unborn generations into penury to support unsustainable, velvet-handcuff entitlements, I'd wear your remark as a badge of honor.

        What you describe as having come from "progress" has been done by every conservative president in my lifetime, and likely prior as well. If you feel that conservatives need to oppose such things then that would support a thesis of our country having never elected a conservative president.

        • You say "conservative", I say "progressive". And thus we reach a nihilistic point where words cease to support communication.
          De doo doo doo, de dah dah dah.

            Not necessarily. It supports the thesis that in your view, we have never had a "conservative" president, as by your definition every president has been "progressive". That should lead you to ponder why we have never had a "conservative" president.

            • I've explained on numerous occasions that Woodrow Wilson, 100 years ago, was the bad guy. This is where the systemic balances which offered political stability were removed. A century one, we're collapsing.
              Were you to offer any similar, concise analysis, I might regard you seriously.

                I recall you blaming him many times over. That doesn't change the fact that there has never been an American President who has met your definition of "conservative". Furthermore it does not change the fact that our current POTUS is the most fiscally conservative president we have ever had.

                Regardless, smitty, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. i hope that in spite of all your anger and hatred you do find things to be thankful for on this day. I know I have much to be thankful for myself.

                • i hope that in spite of all your anger and hatred

                  I pray that one day you grasp the utter crassness of assertions such as this.

                    Hope your turkey flavoured hannukah was enjoyable

                • Nonetheless, happy Thanksgiving to you, too.
