    Re: Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Are we really arguing over which party has the most crooks? Really?


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That's because people who don't believe citations are delusional.

    You have a mental problem. You don't want to accept the truth because it will shatter your complex. You only believe what you want to....

    I was once a progressive when I was a TEENAGER and YOUNG ADULT then a GREW UP and realized the progressive philosophy was based on lies and propaganda. I realized that progressives are nothing more than scared enslaved people or those who claim to care about others but want the government or special interest groups to do all the caring (kinda like a caring carbon credit), I realized that progressives were more interested in conflict (and violence) than they are with peace I realized their philosophy is hypocritical. I realized they and their politics were no different than a street gang.

    Funny how I figured out by the age of 20 I was being played like a harp by progressives, but that doesn't mean I'm a republican - It just means I have no respect for progressives because they certainly had no respect for me by treating me like a sheep.

    Yeah, ask a progressive "why" on any issue and they wont offer a legitimate and factual answer they will come up with conspiracy theories... That's why they use language like "war on woman" or "racism" - you progressives just dream up a "war" and pretend like its factual... You progressives are over emotional and quite frankly I believe you all belong in mental hospitals because you will believe anything just as long as you feel it is "unjust" just to feel as if you're "fighting for what you believe in" - when you're the ones creating the fight... No matter your age you're all just a bunch of rebellious teenagers that never grew up.

    Naaaa, you cant understand what I just told you, that's why I'm a libertarian (classical liberal) and you're here spewing one-liners believing you're the popular funny kid on the 5th grade playground.

    It must suck to hit your peak in the 5th grade eh?

    Re: Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    This thread has now gone over 12 pages and I see two things worth pointing out.

    1. There is no clear cut winner in the "Who is worse? Republicans or Democrats" debate.

    2, hoj is unable to complete a post without the use of the word "memes".

    Progressives don't own the media. Fox is the highest rated news station in the country, so you are just entirely full of ****. Also, quite a lot of progressives don't give a frack about the fairness doctrine. This is something you've built up in your head as a talking point. You should probably stop doing that.

    I'm not implying anything. I'm simply pointing out that if, as you've suggested, the "progressive media" has the kind of power you're alleging, they have no use whatsoever for the fairness doctrine. Not your made up version of the fairness doctrine, but the actual fairness doctrine.

    Well considering Fox is the ONLY conservative media outlet in a nation that is roughly 50% conservative, not to mention the fact progressives watch Fox because they're masochists - yeah it is not surprising Fox is the highest rated news network.. I can give you several options for progressive news - I can only give you one for conservatives.

    You have to understand that "fair" to progressives is to destroy every non-progressive opinion. Just like "fair" to progressives is socialism (and Marxism) yeah well, "fair" may be good to the toilet cleaners under those models, however it isn't fair to the doctor or scientist who went to school for 10+ years just so they could live the same lifestyle and be treated the same despite the fact they gave 10 years of their life to learning a trade - while anyone could pick up a toilet brush and clean a toilet.

    I didn't say they have no issue, I said they didn't attack the first amendment rights of anyone. Anyone with half a brain should have some issues with Faux news. Political propaganda is a bad thing. And yes, Fox is full of political propaganda. So is MSNBC (although arguably somewhat less so). More people watch Fox. Which brings me to...

    And yet, Fox is the highest rated news station in the country; so where's this progressive media monster you're obsessed with if most people are watching fox?

    Yeah, Socialism and Marxism are not remotely the same thing. Also, you're not talking about any kind of reality, you're talking about bull**** talking points that you use to engage in a kind of mental masturbation. I'm sure it's rewarding to you, but it's still a fantasy. I would hope it gets you off, though, because otherwise it's entirely worthless.

    Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees. The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002. Prosecutors said DeLay will likely be free for months or even years as his appeal makes it through the Texas court system.

    The whole thing is exactly what Dave Chappele exemplified in this bit called "Tron Carter's Law & Order". Two different justice system's indeed.
    Maybe he will have a reunion with his pal Jack Abramoff when he gets out of the pokey in three years.

    Yeah right, progressives think Fox News should be banned.

    Oh really? progressives certainly want to ban Free Speech - anything they don't agree with is promptly labeled "hate speech" - If I was wrong then "hate speech" wouldn't even be a phrase now would it? NO that is something progressives invented.


    And yet, Fox is the highest rated news station in the country; so where's this progressive media monster you're obsessed with if most people are watching fox?
    I'll attempt to make it as simple as possible - progressives have several news outlets to watch - conservatives only have ONE and conservatives make up 50% of the populace. One side gets watered down due to competition and the other has NO competition. Since Fox News has no competition and the other outlets do and factoring in the notion that 50% of the nation is conservative or republican Fox News will be rated higher. It's basic statistics. Well, either that or you're confused on how TV ratings work.




    I don't have to understand that, because it's ****ing stupid and wildly inaccurate.
    Oh really? then what the hell are you attempting to do now? progressives are a bunch of Nazi's who believe they can ban whatever they don't like or tax the ideas or substances they don't like into oblivion.

    You want to talk about happy meal toys, slurpees and cigarettes or guns, fireworks and light bulbs?


    Yeah, Socialism and Marxism are not remotely the same thing.

    Marxism is a social philosophy and socialism is the economic model the philosophy exists under. Both are the same because both ideas are joined at the hip. WOW socioeconomics!

    The old "grew up" crap statement is BS as the " I was so drunk I didn't know what I was doing".
    So in another words you grew up and everyone else stayed retarded , right? Well, while you were trying to cut the cord many of us were already serving in the military at 18.

    But of course you are too smart to be a democrat and of course not a republican either. And in another 20 yrs you will look at this dribble and be embarassed.

    Fair to progressives is their POV puked back at them on MSNBC 24-7-365.

    Just like socialism is the only "fair" solution to progressives.
    The simple fact that you went off topic to do a broadstroke bull**** slam of liberals in general kind of proves that you have not a clue what the fairness doctrine is and was.
