    Sure. There might be a totally valid reason this guy has been questioned 250 times. I’m sorry – I thought you guys were interested in the Constitution.

    It has nothing to do with race? Are you serious? Find me a white person in America who’s been arrested 60 times for trespassing in his own workplace.

    @ uninspired

    Who is forcing anybody to do anything here?

    It’s crazy how some people think you’re racist when all you’re doing is coming up with a clever nickname for them based on nothing but the color of their skin.

    @ Schmidt

    Neither of the people who commented before me objected to Janet’s comment. So far, nobody here has objected to it but me. Incidentally, I’ve been a commenter here for years — check my history — I remember the days when racist comments weren’t welcome.

    I can’t believe you can post an unmistakable argument for segregation here, and nobody says a word. This isn’t Conservatism — it’s just straight up racism. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Classy!

    Actually, they seem a little confused. If you combine respondents with “unfavorable” or “highly unfavorable” opinions of Obama, you get 36%. If 38% of them think that Obama is “hostile to Israel”, then 2% of them are apparently OK with it. Conservative pollsters are bad at math.

    Hi, Moreoil –

    The difference is that we didn’t commit troops to Libya, while Iraq cost thousands of American lives (and trillions of dollars). I’m no fan of kill lists either, but there’s no question which party has committed more of our troops to more dubious causes. Leo’s Mom’s charge of a double standard is
    ridiculous.

    Hi, Leo’s Mom.

    With all due respect, I’d like to remind you that the Bush administration didn’t have a great record with regard to facts. Remember how we were sure to find WMD in Iraq? Remember how the war wasn’t going to cost anything? Remember how there were just a “few dead-enders” holding out? Yeah. Believe me — if there was any possible excuse to impeach the President, y’all would have done it by now.

    OK. So. Let me get this straight. We’re saying that the Justice Department, guessing that this guy was eventually going to offend Muslims, got him convicted three years ago on charges of bank fraud. And predicting that he would do it over the internet using an alias, they gave him terms of probation that specifically restricted his internet use and forbade him to use an alias. All of this, just so they could bring him in now, question him, and then… you know… let him go.

    Really?

    Hey, Yakov –

    Surprisingly, I pretty much exactly agree with you — government and the financial industry are looking out for each other, and the rest of us are getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop. Maybe Conservatives and Liberals can agree on getting the money out of politics. Anybody want to talk about campaign finance reform?

  • September 9, 2012 at 11:37pm

    You have got to be kidding me. Banks made literally billions of dollars pushing absurd loans to people who couldn’t afford them, and you blame the government? I’ve got no love for Chris Dodd, but take a look at who the big banks are contributing to this year — it’s pretty easy to see which party is in their pocket.

  • September 9, 2012 at 10:25pm

    Wow. You guys are so wrong about this. The Community Reinvestment Act encouaged only the tiniest percentage of the subprime loans that led to the crisis in ’08. The worst offenders (i.e. Countryside) weren’t touched by it at all. Banks pushed these risky loans because they were making tons of money on them in the short term. Seriously — Google this. Or better yet, read a book — any book — on the subject. I would suggest “The Big Short” by Michael Lewis, but take your pick.

    This is the most reasonable and humane thing I’ve seen all day. I don’t often agree with the posts here, but you are a class act, Momprayn.

  • March 16, 2012 at 10:22pm

    They didn’t actually mention the fact that he’s white. You might be surprised to learn that there are Black, Hispanic and Asian Christians, too.

  • September 26, 2011 at 3:00pm

    Still no. I doubt very much that the campus GLBT groups, for instance, exclude Christians. And if they do, they shouldn’t get funding, either. It’s despicable to make me pay for something and then specifically exclude me from using it. Again — why can’t they just pay for their own stuff?

    @ rdietd7

    My point about the Constitution is that everyone is protected by it — there is no exemption for homosexuals. This isn’t just a symbolic issue. There are real financial and social benefits that come along with marriage. How can you possibly justify making somebody pay higher taxes, for instance, just because they don’t agree with your personal religious views?

  • September 26, 2011 at 2:37pm

    Fair enough, Swampy. To everybody that’s kvetching about poor people who don’t pay income tax, though, let me point something out: while the income tax is (allegedly) progressive, other taxes are not. Payroll taxes and sales taxes, for instance, fall more heavily on the poor. If you look at the entire tax burden on the individual, just about everybody pays a higher percentage of their income than Warren Buffet.

    @ Erabin

    Ha. Right on. Capital gains *are* income. Calling them something different only serves to make the tax code more regressive.
