Ohhhh, I see. They’re used to being monitored, so its okay to violate their rights.

Just because you “didn’t build it by yourself”–that you didn’t build your own lawnmower, for example, does not mean that the government can take any credit for your individual accomplishments. Not all roads are built by the government: the roads in my neighborhood, and thousands like it, were built by the developer. Public roads would have never been built had it not been for the pooling of tax revenue paid by individuals and businesses, but the government did not produce or build anything until the money had been made (and taxed) by private enterprise. Sure, the government is there every step of the way–with their hand out, taking their cut off the top. Never forget–WE OWN THE GOVERNMENT, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. It is there to serve us–all of us–and when the taxes from individuals and private enterprise dries up (think DETROIT), where do the useless tools of the left think government will get the money to build and maintain public infrastructure and services? Simple answer–they don’t. It is not a “chicken and egg” paradox; the government would simply not exist were it not for the taxpayer, and our forefathers were wise enough to give us our Constitution and representative republic (not a democracy!), if we can keep it.
When I was a production home builder I paid not only for ALL of my own streets, utilities, fire hydrants, etc. (called "off-sites"), but also was required to put money into sewer plants, new city halls, politicians pockets, (yes, on several occasions I was approached with reverse-bribes - I have names), park fees, traffic lights many miles away, airport fees (because airplanes flew within 2 miles of my projects - go figure), etc., etc., etc. The cities/counties put in ZERO dollars towards anything. They just took my money and now bankrupted their cities/counties. I want to see 1 dollar that the cities/counties generated on their own, besides tickets.

Good Lord. This takes liberal self-loathing to the nth degree.

He should prepare for a visit from the brownshirts–er– the I.R.S.

The good senator can say things like this straightfaced because he may truly “not have personal knowledge” of any small businesses, PERIOD. This is another example of how the left perverts language that implies one thing while avoiding actually conveying the truth. For example, someone could enter a home uninvited, steal whatever they want, kill and/or maim the family living there, and afterwards claim “I made a difference in their lives”. While this statement may be true, it is completely at odds with what really happened. This exemplifies how the left cleverly uses language that causes supporters to interpret one meaning, while opponents recognize that they are not being truthful, and the language used is intentionally ambiguous, so as to avoid actually defending their statements when they are called on the carpet. They can always claim “that’s not what I meant”. How many times has Obama used the “making a difference in people’s lives” line, while failing to mention that the change is not positive? It is absolutely insidious if not downright evil to prey upon people in this manner.

He’ll be back. If you’re 20 (or 17…) and not liberal, you have no heart. If you’re 40 and you’re not a conserative, you have no brain.
You are exactly right. It is only a matter of time now.

Ridiculous, leftist drivel from what is usually a highly respected institution of higher learning. Guns kill people the same way that pencils cause misspellings. The truth is a troublesome thing–it is immutable. A gun is nothing more than an inanimate object until it is used by a person. People USE guns to kill other people. Gun laws do not kill law abiding people, but restrictive gun laws are a detriment to the safety of the general public. Everywhere that restrictive gun laws have been enacted, criminals flout the law and use guns anyway against the unarmed citizenry. More proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.

Fawning sycophants are just too awestruck to engage their brains, so of course she had no idea what he was going to say.

How can you have budget cuts without a budget? Haven’t had one in over 1000 days….

Yet another reason to avoid doing business with Bank of America. What they fail to realize is that they’ll lose far more business by “firing” this customer than they would ever have lost due to having this customer. Even though I do not do business with B of A and have no intention of doing so, I’ll be sure to give my opinion to anyone considering doing business with B of A. Follow the money, B of A: its heading out the door…..

Pelosi tipped the left’s hand when she said “We will go through the gate. If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we will parachute in” during the process of shoving the health care bill down our throat. This adminstration and its minions do not care one iota about the will of the people: in their world, the end justifies the means, and the law be damned.

Wow–he knows an uncanny number of the “Hilary Rosens” in the U.S.! Do a “People Search” online–I know this is not going to be terribly accurate, but based upon the search results he knows approximately 1 in 7 of all the Hilary Rosens returned in the search results! Uncanny? More likely, untrue….

A typo or a fat finger can surely be blamed as the culprit, but who spells crispy and crunchy with a “k”? The people educating our children, apparently….

Geithner is angling for a career in the future, which is why he’ll now risk being at odds with the WH. After being associated with that bunch of criminals in Washington, he probably figures his best long-term chances of employment can be achieved by getting re-acquainted with the truth.
I hear there is an position in the Finance Ministry opening up next fall (in Greece) that he would be eminently qualified for. He can float around the EU's financial cess pool with others of his ilk content in the knowledge that he cannot do anything for them either, but, and this is important, he will look good,sound good, while doing it (extreme sarcasm of course). I hope he likes molotov cocktails, they paly rough over there.

Conservatives are happier because they’re not pre-occupied with their victomology. They don’t feel a need to blame others for their shortcomings. They believe in personal responsibility, and don’t constantly live in a state of self-loathing due like liberals do. Liberals hate themselves because they know that they themselves are inherently co-dependent at best, if not fully dependent, upon someone else for any degree of success they might possibly achieve. They cannot advance in any form unless they are tearing down someone/something else in order to achieve their advance. They truly see themselves as victims of some sort, and seek to enact rules that will allow them to compete in arenas where, if dependent solely upon skill and ability, they would never be able to compete. They feel as though they are ENTITLED not only to compete but to win as well, and are absolutely terrified that they might actually ever find themselves in a truly competitive environment, because they know deep down that they are spineless and weak, and hate themselves for being that way. I can only imagine that it must be a truly miserable existence to think and live in such a manner.
