    I've generally found that nuance tends to give much more weight to said nuances then otherwise deserved. A probability adjusted nuance approach is generally the way to go, and that gives results which both liberals and conservatives wouldn't like to believe.

    Both, I guess, because that's one of the dumbest things I've ever heard, and I know I know much more about it than you do.

    You mean all three.

    We have a good economic policy? 17T

    With 17 trillion going on 18. I would say we don't have an economic policy at all. Either that or our economic policy is spend everything we possibly can today because there might not be a tomorrow. Who gives a hoot about kids, grandkids and those not yet born, future generations to come.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Again: this is why you believe in conspiracies. It's because your critical thinking isn't any better than an old potato's.

    I say: It's dumb to think every protest against a government the US doesn't like has the support of the US.

    You read: Only non American governments conspire against other governments.

    I mean, can you even understand how you ****ed up there? The US can support protests against governments, but that doesn't mean that every protest is supported by the US government. What is it with your astounding lack of intelligence? It's honestly amazing. I'm in awe of some of the things you come up with, but then I'm just blown away at some of the horrible, horrible, horrible logic you use to support it.

    Old, you wouldn't respond to me if you weren't enjoying yourself. I said that "IF" there is a popular protest aimed at overthrowing a government that the US would find beneficial, the US will be supporting that protest. Now you practice reading.
