    In Response to Re: What do you think of The Occupy the Super Bowl initiative? : So here we go with my party is better than your party.   I don't know you Arizona but I voted for LBJ in 1964 who protected us from the North Vietmanese and the threat of the Domino Theory. :(  And In 1972 I voted for Tricky Dicky who promised us "Peace With Honor" in Vietnam.  Then in 1975 with 58,000 American Lives lost along with countless American wounded, we left Vietnam not as victors but with a gigantic question of why? In 1976, I voted for Carter and watched helplessly as the Iranians gave us the finger during the hostage crisis.  We were told to wear sweaters and turn our thermostats down to 60 because we were running out of oil. In 1980 and 1984, I voted for Reagan as he was a pretty good salesman and I thought he would help bring back some respect as a nation.  I think he accomplished this as a whole.  Unfortunately, along comes Iran/Contra, Ed Meese et,al, while the sleeze factor reared its ugly head.   In 1988, I voted for Dukakis because he was the home team and I just didn't like Bush 1.   In 1992 and 1996 I voted for Clinton because I thought he was the best salesman that I had ever seen.  Unfortunately a $40,000,000 BJ helped ruin his legacy.  But when I look back on it now, he was really a new world order guy which actually has to bring America's Standard of Living Down while bringing the rest of the world's up. This was not a good thing. But when I look at the alternatives of Bush 1 and Dole? There was no way I could vote for Bush 2 under any circumstances.  But he got elected and I looked forward to a Campain promise to have community health clinics set up all across America to help sick people who fell through the cracks. I'm still waiting.  Then he digs Saaadam out of a rat hole in the name of weapons of mass destruction.  4,000 to 5,000 American Lives lost and Billions of dollars later, Iraq is how much better off?   I voted for Obama because I couldn't stand Palin and McCain had lost too many steps.   I thought that Obama might help bring about the necessary changes in Wall Street, and Corporate America as a whole.  But no.  Nada - All Wind and No Rain.  His vision was for a rebuilding of our nationwide electrical grid along with better use of natural gas etc.  No, Nada.  Acturally the only change in my electrical grid was that I put a 30 Amp receptacle in my shed.   And of course we have the matter of Afganistan that no country has ever been able to tame going back to Ghengis Kahn.    So there you have it.  47 Years of listening and believing that politicians could actually accomplish what they promised. The bottom line is that there is no such thing as my party is better than your party - not when they are all scum bags.

    But my party is better.   Your fault for thinking,  "Donkey or Elephant?"

    In Response to Re: What do you think of The Occupy the Super Bowl initiative? : Right, but the gov't stil got bigger when he rasied taxes in 1982, as a strategic measure. You can't change history, here.   For example, Dems might argue that we didn't need to spend money on Star Wars or NASA, etc, and then complainn about the defecit when he left office, wishing he conceded more on social programs and investment in those areas. The bottom line is, the majority of Americans are morons and just see and R or a D and check off that box because their parents told them to. It's true.  The average American has no idea how to break down these concepts and talk about politics and history like this.
    Posted by RustyGriswold



    The D and R have become rather meaningless these days. They haggle over a couple hundred billion or so in taxes/spending and act as if there is a real difference between them while they spend trillions. They posture a difference when most of the difference is merely hot air.

    And the sheeple go baaaa all the way to the gulag of their economic annihilation.

    Obama cries how he wants to tax the rich, but didn't do anything when his party controlled the congress in that reagrd.  Republicans hide behing the lie that taxing the rich hurts the "job makers". And the disaprity of the middle class and the wealthy widens and widens.

    Meanwhile a guy like Paul who actually is not cut from the same disgusting cloth as these flim flam artists is called a nut.

    People are getting what they deserve for their ignorance, and it will get worse.

    I'm not going to Wikipedia to find out what "petrulli oil" is.  If it weren't for copy and paste I'd misspell it. 

    I could label everybody I don't like a Nazi.  This sort of thing has been done too many times.  My only other lazy way out is to label nobody Nazis except certain Germans in the 1930s and 1940s who would own the label just fine. 

    The Nazis had to stand for something, so they officially stood against joblessness and (often foreign) rich people who extracted money out of Germany.  Actually the Nazis were quite two-faced about their political stands.  They were politicians after all, and they embraced foreign industrialists who exploited the Nazi offers of slave industrial labor.  Some companies got compensated by the U.S. after their German factories were bombed out.  However, they went after the Jews for not being sufficiently German nationalist (they put God before their country) and for having a disproportionate number of rich people in their ranks.  Many rich Jews fled the country, and the Nazis rounded up the other Jews.  The Nazis also went after gay men, unions, communists, the Roma, a few stray pacifists...

    None of this has a heck of a lot to do with the New York Giants or even their fans. 

    Now what was the thread?  Oh, the protesters!  20 years ago a bunch of anti-fur people hung around fur shops and sprayed permanent red paint on anyone wearing a real fur coat.  These people were often both rich and indolent, which didn't make them too popular with the sprayers.

    The Occupiers are probably going to see people that can blow a thousand bucks on a four hours of guys tossing a ball around a field.  Are they rich and indolent?  Often, yes.  The rest of us can afford to round up a few friends and watch it on television.  Should these people be caring about their country in our time of need where the jobless are taking their own lives sometimes?  Well, maybe they should.  So, if the rich and indolent partiers accidentally get pepper sprayed by a mean old cop, is that a problem to the occupiers?

    I think the occupiers' goal is to say to the rich, you don't automatically earn a happy time in your own country if you don't do anything for the nation.  If you don't like your slight mistreatment on the streets, do something for real for the good of your country other than yap.  The occupiers aren't the ones that are giving up.  Nor are the occupiers leaving you alone in your alcoholic pleasure dome.  They don't mind bugging your and mocking you about once a month for the rest of your life, and maybe when it gets to be once a day you'll wise up a bit.

    One thing I find kind of Bizaaaaa is that I probably could agree with with some if not most of almost every single post on this thread.  This is how politically worn out or politically neutered I've become over the years.   

    In any event at this moment, the only contest I'm concerned with is Patriots Vs. Giants.

    My vote is for The Patriots by a Landslide.   :)

    The Constitution is just an instrument of oppression by the rich white man.  Burn it to the ground I say.
    Posted by mighty2012


    I suggest you read it again, particularly Amendments 1-10. Self-imposed governmental restrictions put in place to allow for more indiviudal liberty than existed anywhere else on the globe at the time. Yes, slavery existed...that does not negate the preceding statement.

    You are either for the Constituion or against it. Most of New England is against it. The irony of that is beyond the realm of understanding.

    What does supporting the US Constitution have to do with being a liberal or not being a liberal? You either support it, or you don't regardless if you like fag66ots, smoking marijuana, are a jesus freak, or not.

    Because red state people often wrongfully accuse blue state people of not supporting the constitution.

    So in what way do people from NE not support it, in your view?

    They were a bunch of rich white dudes trying to protect their own interests and sugarcoating it with flowery speeches and federalist papers that would make some stuck up intellectuals 200 years later feel smart for reading.

    In Response to Re: What do you think of The Occupy the Super Bowl initiative? : That, too, is wrong. I think that's just another example of rhetoric and labeling. It's sort of like how people call liberals Socialists or Marxists.  Remember the anti-Obama poster with Lenin, Hitler and then Obama, left to right? The moron(s) who created that forget to go to college, apparently.  Lenin and Obama are closer politically than anything Hitler would have been connected to, but they put Hitler on there because Hitler represents of a tangible fear element to the average American that votes DDD or RRR every election. Embarassing. We need more Americans understanding concepts and facts and less Americans following for rhetoric so the people in Congress can't stop pulling the wool over our eyes.

    Runer said people from NE don't support the constitution. I'd like him to explain that statement. Without a reasonable explanation I have to assume he came to that conclusion by way of an a s s- backward understanding of the document itself.

    Yeah, I don't agree with his blanket statement whatsoever. That's why I said people on the right use that as a shot against people on the left nowawdays, which is a cop-out/a away to avoid an in depth discussion on the concepts. My favorite is when some Tea Party type says the Bill of Rights or Consitution never mentions "separation of church and state". Well, it doesn't mention it in the first 10 Amendements, but it mentions it in the body of the Constitution of itself, which means you never read it! Unreal. Morons can't even do their homework. Stick to the facts and discuss. That goes for both sides.  Both sides do it and it's becausue the majority of voters don't really take the time to delve into the concepts and the political history to learn from this stuff.

    Seperation of church and state is the only way to comply with the establishment clause of the 1st amendment. What I find most interesting about those who don't believe in that seperation is that it's actually great for religious people, in that it guarantees the the government cannot interfere with your right to practice whatever religion you choose. I don't understand why religious people insist on seeing that as a bad thing.

    Occupy Superbowl ? Hmmm not sure if it will generate the attention the occupiers seek. You know they won't get in the stadium. Outside they'll blend in with the carnival scene, maybe butt heads with tailgaters. Great choices in your poll. My vote went to retired 60's 70's 80's dudes trying to score some weed. GO PATS!
