    Actually, that isn't who I said to negotiate with. Seriously, think a little and read better. I said negotiate with those who might be helpful, as the British did with their Irish issue. Instead of building up the rep of ISIS, demean it by not helping it recruit, and making allies where we can. In other words, be smart instead of just foolishly tearing **** apart.

    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.

    Another ignorant statement. My political lean? so, you are making the brilliant statement that someone's political lean can tell you if you are a racist or not? What was George Wallace's "political lean"?

    Go ahead, prove me wrong, show me some racist quotes in the posts that you are refering to. You still know nothing, yet the entire board is getting a pretty good idea about how you think.

    Who do you feel might be helpful to negotiate with?

    That might be true in the case of Belgium, but not ISIS. Who is going to stop them?

    George Wallace was a far right conservative. Here's a history lesson for you - the extreme conservatives and hell even the moderate ones - opposed integration and the civil rights movement. The Liberals were the guiding force behind both. Any Republican support for either of those concepts vanished when you purged your party of any real moderates or - god forbid - liberal Republicans.

    I think everybody has you and your ilk figured out pretty well. You were opposed to the President from day one, and you even created an entire movement - the Tea Party - to give strident voice to that opposition. Most of that gut level hatred expressed by these loons was based on the fact that the President is black. You can deny that all you want. It doesn't make it not true.

    To the best of my knowledge, I never called you a racist. I don't know whether you are or not. What I do know is that you occupy the far right side of the political spectrum, and it's not exactly difficult to attribute certain beliefs to those who reside there.

    It is very naive and dangerous for people like you not to recognize that you cannot negotiate with everyone and evil exists in the world. This is evil and there is one way to handle it, destroy it. Converting or dying is the only option and that doesn't seem to bother you.
