    "There were those on the left that pronounced with glee the end of Liberty, the end of the Constitution, the end of individual freedom and responsibility"

    Care to offer any proof on this?

    "Care to offer any proof on this?" *coffee spits*

    Since when did the nagging possibility of proof bother the professors progeny?

    The ultimate in oxymorons. Cherry picking aside, it's nice to see the basics of Sams writ hold without challenge from the self-evoking one.

    How about this Sir Oily...an unconstitutional mandate requiring private citizens to purchase a product...to wit; Obamacare?

    How about the appointment of czars to various areas of authority without vetting, without congressional approval, without any transparency or illumination of their activities?

    How about the directive from the DOJ that indemnifies voter coercion on behalf of the New Black Panthers?

    What about the litigation against Arizona who exercised Constitionally given state powers to protect her own borders?

    Just some dripping examples that would definitely be compass points for the erosion of liberty, individual freedom, and at least the circumvention of the Constitution if not the erosion of it.

    "You have been a fan of censorship. Whenever the heat got to high, you - or your spouse - ran to the paper and cried about it."

    No, actually I am fan of following the rules. I have never flagged a comment because it was personal. I only have flagged after a rule was violated. You can of course "lie" and make it personal and attack me and my wife but that does not mean you are right.

    I flagged GI several times on my own blog. I don't flag on your blog because that is your responsibility not mine. Whenever GI and the gang brought their hate for you over to my blog I asked them to be respectful and not to post the hateful language on my blog. If they didn't stop I flagged them.

    Again, thought, I asked you for proof of "those on the left" (an ambiguous term if I have ever heard one) and instead of offering proof you attacked me and then gave examples of GI personally attacking you (as much as I agree what he said about you was wrong, you are no liberty nor the Constitution).

    If you want to get into comparisons there have been several posters to personally attack me and you have never not once come to my defense. Quit playing the victim card and give me real examples of anyone one the left cheering the demise of liberty and the end of the Constitution.

    "How about this Sir Oily...an unconstitutional mandate requiring private citizens to purchase a product...to wit"

    Cute nickname but that was a Republican sponsored idea. So that is actually from the right not from the left.

    "How about the appointment of czars to various areas of authority without vetting, without congressional approval, without any transparency or illumination of their activities?"

    Presidents of both political parties have done this so once again your example falls flat.

    "How about the directive from the DOJ that indemnifies voter coercion on behalf of the New Black Panthers?"

    There, of course, is no proof of this so once again this example falls flat.

    "What about the litigation against Arizona who exercised Constitionally given state powers to protect her own borders?"

    Last time I checked stopping people based on their color or nationality is not Constitutional.

    "The ultimate in oxymorons. Cherry picking aside, it's nice to see the basics of Sams writ hold without challenge from the self-evoking one."

    Um, Mickel, I did challenge him so this doesn't even make sense.

    Once again you have confused me for my father. I don't really understand why you can't get this straight.

    Care to try again Mickel?

    Here's my real question, though. If the Democrats somehow manage to hold on to one or both houses, will you admit that the Democrats won or will you once again start decrying voter fraud?

    Oh Michael - you have once again found purpose! How wonderful.

    However - once again you are wrong on several fronts.

    Obamacare was not a Republican idea. If it was, then why did it get ZERO Republican support when it came to a vote? (oops - It DID get some RINO support, but they're just libs in RINO clothing)

    Czars have been appointed by both political parties? Oh you mean Democrat and Liberal? Name one czar appointed by Nixon, Reagan, Bush Sr or Bush Jr and I'll believe you. Otherwise you are just living on the "hope" part of hope and change.

    No proof the DOJ didn't drop prosecution of the Black Panthers? Oh - so they DID prosecute then....Care to offer any proof of that?

    The DOJ's Holder dropped all cases against the New Black Panthers - and yes, voter intimidation did occur.

    Try this: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/06/...

    Read the Arizona law Mr. Hendricks - it says nothing about race. This point has been hashed to death. A point that would be settled if you would just read the legislation, sir. Too lazy I imagine.

    I know you are not your father. I know and like your father - He at least will concede when he has been shown an area of where he has been in error. Sorry that it didn't rub off on you.

    But we're still hopin'!

    To your later post - IF the Dems hold on to both houses, I would assert that it was either a miracle or voter fraud. Name me one Dem who is running on the accomplishments of the last 18 months?

    Michael - if Obamacare was a Repulican idea...then why are several of the current office holding Republicans talking about repeal?

    Oh - and I suppose "Sir Oily" was a bit much - I was trying to infer "slick" when I made that reference; could very well have been over the top and for that I extend my apologies.

    You know full well I was talking about the mandate, but wonderful try in attempting to switch it up.

    Mickel thanks for giving me the softball to hit out of the park with the czars

    Randall Tobias, Scott Evertz, Joe O'Neill, Carol Thompson, Neel Kashkari, Leon Kass, Stewart Simonson, Eric Keroack, Mitchell E. Daniels, Rob Portman, Jessie Roberson, James Rispoli, Dan Bartlett, Richard A.

    "No proof the DOJ didn't drop prosecution of the Black Panthers? Oh - so they DID prosecute then....Care to offer any proof of that?"

    Since you didn't say that from the beginning I can't prove that. You originally said: "How about the directive from the DOJ that indemnifies voter coercion on behalf of the New Black Panthers?"

    Those two statements are not the same. At least liberals don't stop people who disagree with them in the head and THEN demand an apology.

    Um, LIAR! You flagged me during a discussion on the difference between ignorance and stupidity. I pointed out my interpretation of the differences, and how it applied to you. AND YOU FLAGGED ME!!!

    Your lying is pathological Mike, get help!

    Amazing that Clinton actually did more to apprehend Osama, then Bush did.

    Did you hear about the so-called news reporters that were caught on cell phones plotting to smear Joe Miller in Alaska?

    Typical Democrat politics.

    Poor Dems. They are upset that they cannot lie, steal and cheat without getting caught nowadays.

    The truth is ... radicals, like Michael, have hijacked the Democrat party. The dems are now are farther left than the European Socialists. The national Democrat leadership does not represent many rank and file Democrats.

    I want to know when you Democrats that still care about this country, you Democrats that still believe in the American dream, you Democrats that know life is sacred, when are you going to stand against the commies that have taken over your party?

    Do you lack courage?

    In America, many of us would take some comfort, if the moderate Muslims (you leftist claims they are out there) would verbalize their alledged disgust with Islamic terrorists.

    But they don't, or they do it in a very small way. So, one would conclude that the so-called moderate Muslims approve.

    Same with you Democrats. Many of you claim that you are not Socialists, Marxists and Communists, but I don't hear you say a word against this wacko bunch that took over your party and our country. So, I must conclude that you approve, and are happy with Socialism and Marxism.

    Why all the BS. Just admit that you are Marxists, and let's have an honest debate. Knock of the semantics and man up.

    What am I saying? Lies and liberals goes together like wet and water.

    Hey Chunky - Dems cannot help but lie. They know if they are honest about their agenda, the people will reject them.

    But they keep moving us further and further left.

    Years ago, the libs used to deny they were libs. They would pretend to have conservative values, (like Ben Nelson does) to get elected, then go to Washington and drive us to Socialism.

    Now they want us to believe that they are merely liberals.

    Liberals, Marxists, Commies, Socialists, same **** thing anymore. A turd by any other name is still a turd.

    AND ... of course Michael has engaged in censorship. It is what all liberals do when they cannot win an argument.

    eddy,

    Assuming you are correct and that Sam is an eighth grade science project, what do you have against the education of junior high students that you feel Sam should be ashamed? Shouldn't we encourage the work of students?

  • This is in responce to "A turd by any other name is still a turd" This isn't directed at anyone, its just word's of wisdom to live by. A fact about a turd, you can't polish a turd no matter how hard you try, unless of course its petrified.

  • Actually no, not at all. It wasn't directed at anyone or any party. Take it for what it's worth.
