Yeah, God that would be a terrible legacy to leave behind, wouldn't it? He'd be far better off being one one those right wing nutjobs like your buddies the Waltons, building million dollar houses for themselves and devoting huge sums of money to right wing wacky causes.

As to you being a right winger - your thousands of posts say otherwise.
As to you shredding that label - you have made a half hearted effort to deny your own reality but you always end up doing the same things to me and many others. And it always follows the same pattern and ends the same.
1- your extremism is exposed by other posters
2- you get all huffy and issue a challenge demanding proof of your extremism
2- you then proceed to go about ignoring the material presented as a result of the challenge or offering some self serving excuse
3- you then depart from the issue being discussed and attempt to make it personal
4- you try to derail the actual discussion invoking all your self promoting self-serving hype talking about yourself as a third person cartoon character
5 - you then demand an apology when the other side will not give in to your bullying tactics or join your one many fan club
6- when you do not get your apology you declare victory, act in smug an superior manner , and hightail it outta here.
7- until it happens again where go back to point #1 in an endless loop

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
