FM, it might be better if you just go back to regurgitating whatever El Rushbo tells you. Reading for comprehension, and attempting to formulate logical responses, is quite obviously not your forte. Your obsession with presidential politics is quaint, but it's time to move on.

I'm not sure why you're so eager to make enemies, but you certainly don't need to add me to your growing list. I just calls 'em like I sees 'em, no hostility intended.

Here are some (mostly) non-partisan quotes that for you to contemplate. Some have probably been posted before in other forums here but some are new, I think. And some are very good.

1. In my many years I have come to a conclusion: that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress. ~ John Adams

2. If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read
the newspaper you are misinformed. ~ Mark Twain

3. Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of
Congress. But then I repeat myself. ~ Mark Twain

4. I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is
like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the
handle. ~ Winston Churchill

5. A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the
support of Paul. ~ George Bernard Shaw

6. A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which
debt he proposes to pay off with your money. ~ G. Gordon Liddy

7. Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. ~ James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

8. Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people
in rich countries to rich people in poor countries. ~ Douglas Casey,

9. Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car
keys to teenage boys. ~ P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

10. Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors
to live at the expense of everybody else. ~ Frederic Bastiat, French
Economist (1801-1850)

11. Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if
it stops moving, subsidize it. ~ Ronald Reagan (1986)

12. I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the
facts. ~ Will Rogers

13. If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what
it costs when it's free! ~ P.J. O'Rourke

14. In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money
as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. ~Voltaire (1764)

15. Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean
politics won't take an interest in you! ~ Pericles (430 B.C.)

16. No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature
is in session. ~ Mark Twain (1866 )

17. Talk is cheap...except when Congress does it. ~ Anonymous

18. The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy
appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. ~ Ronald Reagan

19. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the
blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of
misery. ~ Winston Churchill

20. The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the
taxidermist leaves the skin. ~ Mark Twain

21. The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to
fill the world with fools. ~ Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

22. There is no distinctly Native American criminal class ... save
Congress. ~ Mark Twain

23. What this country needs are more unemployed politicians. ~ Edward
Langley, Artist (1928 - 1995)

24. A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong
enough to take everything you have. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Doug, Thanks for jumping in here. I took the liberty of moving your post to a New Thread "Main Stream Media~ Where is the truth, really?"

I think this might be a good topic since everyone seems to think there is only one source for "real" information.

The "stimulus" thread remains open but PALEEZE lets keep on topic. I am guilty as any for drifting.

Doug, your list of quotes showed a tendency to look at all government as the problem...bingo.

Familyman, tell all the "you guys" we would be better off with McCain. That would be a chuckle.

"Unemployment is at it's highest point in 20 years" 3-7-09. Let me see...Obama has been in office 46 days...Bush 8 years. Clinton 8 yrs before that. And FM wants to blame Obama?? Liberals?? Democrats?? What a hooT!!

I blame the Amish. If they had purchased their fair share of Hummers we would not have GM filing for bankruptcy.

8th Georgia Bank failed. Must be Obama's fault?

George Bush has no rival as the most limp, lame, loser, president in the history of the US. And Rush Limpbone, and FM, support that idiot. More laughs.

Earmarks and Pork: did you hear Bush's stimulation package had more earmarks than Obama's new stimulation package? ....do daaaa, do daaaa....

I've been into computer animation over the winter. Thought maybe I would share this one. Seems appropriate...

PORK KONG This one rated PG.

Requires Active X flash player (installed on most PCs)

If you liked this one, PM me and I will send links to my others. Be forwarned : most are not PG.

Either do something or do nothing. Politics is like a puzzle and so is administration. Don't expect any miracles over night. The package is progressive in areas. Alternative energy is one area that I really like.

Our nation's financial problems may have reached a point where we need to elect a Jew to get us out of this mess. I only say this because I heard this joke the other day.

A boy asks his Jewish father for $50. The father replies, "Forty bucks, what the hell do you need twenty bucks for?"

McCain and others rant on about earmarks. They are idiots. Every State representative has the responsibility to respond to their constituents' requests. If they request money for road repair or more police protection, isn't it the duty of the elected official to request that money? Listen to the the only voice of reason in the den of idiots:

It would be nice if they got rid of the no good lieing air bag.


FYI - Fox publishes more fake news than another other news group. I used to like listening to Rush Limbaugh until recently. He is so far off the wall now, and probably still on drugs, that I can no longer tolerate the big air bag. I also take anthing from Fox news with a grain of salt anyway, ie; Rush Limbaugh. The big thing now-a-days is what they call canned news. Fake news, everyone publishes without verifying it's accuracy. Try typing Fake News in your search engine. The information you get is a real eye opener.

FOX news is a mindplug for the mindless.

I used to be "somewhat/occasional" Glenn Beck viewer when he was on CNN. On occasion, he would have a decent show with interesting guests. As it was...

Since he has moved to FOX, he has gone 100% over the top. Ranting, preaching, crying and spewing BS... Must be trying to unseat Rush and if he is, he is making good progress. My kleenex bill is high enough as it is.

Colbert has him nailed.

Fox news is a joke, if you believe anything they say you're nieve. I can't even stand to turn it on. I do like CNN though. I like Lou Dobbs he tells it like it is. And NAFTA was a bad bill. But it wasn't Clinton AND the Dems that orignated that bill. It was a Republican bill Senate and House and Clinton sold us out and signed it. Most Dems in the senate and house were against it. But the Republicians controled the senate and house after 1996. Which Nafta was I believe signed into law 1998 or 1999. To me it is the one thing that is most responsible for our economy problem. OUTSOURSING not good. Buy USA

Yes I totaly agree with you Kevin,thats what did America in,and only bringing back manufacturing can save America,but not going to happen with the sold out reps,and senators.Obama is only bailing out the big bankers letting the little man sink into proverty!. This downfall was planned by Lumanatti to destroy America to bring on there new world order and complete control of all world comerce and money where only them and there familys will have freedom the rest will be there pulpers.
