Uh, Veritas, this is not the online "Locomotive Daily News." I had nothing to do with your "removed from site" occurrences.

Look in the mirror for once or call the online editor to moan. Why can't you be responsible for the state of your own account?

Everybody who is "somebody" gets Dem somebodies to care, and the rest of us can twist in the wind. Who cares if all there is is part-time employment? Who cares that the recovery is turtle-like in speed and vigor? Not Dems...

Veritas, the nonsensical, childish and churlish response you gave to Matt is more than a double standard. It's no standards for liberals (anything goes) and accusatory standards for conservatives (why aren't you perfect).

Non-Dem believers will, in your Dem eyes, always deserve your contempt. I've read the GOP pseudo-obits and the repeated calls for a strong GOP candidate. Big deal. As if a Dem cares...

The Dem leaders are hurting regular Americans with the policies they promote. Big businesses get a year's delay from Obamacare mandates, while unions get exemptions.

Veritas, I've a "duty" to enforce nothing. This is MDN's forum. Plus, I didn't "report" you. I gave my thoughts on your use of the word "bimbo" in full view, no reporting needed.

As I've said before, you, willgrr and all your friends do a superlative job of policing the righty posts.

You're welcome to that job of enforcing the "less than desirable commenting," Veritas. Lead the way with reason and sense in your posts.

Will that be the day or won't it...

"...keep right on spending as much as possible because that is the course to financial strength...."

That is Keynesian economics to a sweet tea.

"One of those who spoke for the White House was James Carville, the Clinton adviser who portrays himself as a real grass-roots kind of guy. But of Jones, Carville said: "Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and there's no telling what you'll find.""

Seems nothing has changed for the progressives since 1997...

Good on ya! ;-}

Here's a dive into Dem/lib past, by the inimitable Mike Royko...

"Although he's portrayed as a sexual creep, President Clinton isn't the only one who should be embarrassed by the Paula Jones case.

"The Washington media elite ought to be cringing. So should many of those former liberals who now call themselves politically progressive. They're being accused of being White House puppets in efforts to muddy up Ms. Jones as mere "trailer trash."

"In one of the most remarkable journalistic confessions I've ever read, a Newsweek writer recently described how he and other members of the "mainstream" press brigade were willing, even eager, participants in the kick-Paula campaign.

"As the Newsweek article said: "In media accounts, she tends to be portrayed as a trailer park floozy digging for money and celebrity."

"One of those who spoke for the White House was James Carville, the Clinton adviser who portrays himself as a real grass-ro

I try to keep my comments about President Obama directed to his policies, not his personality, on purpose, because I'm after a discussion of policies.

I wonder if you approve of all the names Sarah Palin has been called?

My analysis of your "liking women," that is, only certain women, was spot on.

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"

Veritas, you aren't what you say you are, but we all knew that, didn't we?

------- Bimbo (online dictionary)

Slang - A woman regarded as vacuous or as having an exaggerated interest in her sexual appeal --------

First, I don't think you know Sarah Palin, and I'll tell you outright that I don't know Sarah Palin.

Here's a little clue for you and any other man: using the word "bimbo" to describe a woman is vacuous, or "having or showing a lack of thought or intelligence; mindless."

Other libs have said "bimbo" about Palin, so you just climb on that bandwagon, because she's a Republican/conservative/not of your political persuasion.

Insisting that Palin is a "bimbo" not only insults her (the primary objective), but it insults what was a majority of Alaskans who elected her for governor once.

As if they were all bamboozled by her bimbo-ness while pushing the button in the booth. *roll eyes*

...is it the government that's propping up the market with its own investments (QEs)?

Big Government vs Big Business

Which is scarier? Which has more power to intrude into your daily life? The Walmart people? Or the IRS?

I'll give you two guesses and the first one doesn't count.

"...the term “Keynesian economics” was used to refer to the concept that optimal economic performance could be achieved – and economic slumps prevented – by influencing aggregate demand through activist stabilization and economic intervention policies by the government."

More government involvement in the economy hasn't led to business confidence. "Involvement" has not only included stimulus investment. It's included further taxation and more regulation.

Businesses are waiting for the other shoe to drop all the time. Many have decided to drop full-timers for part-timers, to avoid the consequences of Obamacare's burdens.

A strict laissez-faire economy is no longer possible in our day, but less governmental intrusion and/or management of the economy would be better.

The libs will say "sure, with no gov't regs, it'll be a free-for-all with no safeguards and rich getting richer."

So are common people investing in the stock market nowadays? Or is it

"Sarah Putin & Ted Canadian encourage demonstrators to waive confederate flag at last sundays fiasco and another bimbo recieved applause after saying..."put that quran down"...

"This will surely put the perverbial nail in the coffin! No wonder John McCain asked for forgiveness and reminded pundits not to punish the party too severely..."

I consider this post typical of unabashed GOP haters, disguised as wannabe compassionate, tolerant libs.

Supposedly, the libs are "above" common name-calling, trash-talking, blue language, hyperbole...

except when it suits their purposes to a sweet tea.

One example: any man who states he likes women, but readily uses the word "bimbo" to describe a woman he disagrees with, must only like Democrat liberal women, who could never, ever be "bimbos," right?

All we had to do was wait...

As long as voters factor in a candidate's religious affiliation (which will probably be always be the case, so long as there are religious people about) then no, America probably will not elect a Muslim as president. On the other hand, Keith Ellison is a congressman, so who can really say?
