People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
There are nations more than happy to take the wealthy or wealth creators and not punish them for it.
Amazing this discussion occurs about America.
A place to escape the punitive, intolerant, anti-American beast it has become.
But there is a line from Three Days of the Condor.
At the end Redford is advised to leave the US by an assasine who was after him.
Turner: I was born in the United States, Joubert. I miss it when I'm away too long.
Joubert: A pity.
Turner: I don't think so.

THE OBAMA WAY.
YES WE CAN
I'd fly The Stars and Stripes upside down, not as a sign of protest or disrespect, but in its nautical meaning... showing distress.
.If a crew abandons a ship in distress to save their life, the last thing to do (if they have time to do so) is to turn the flag upside down. This means that they give up any right on the vessel or cargo and anybody who manages to rescue the ship afterwards could keep it.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
What we need is enough people to care enough to make sure that Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, and Reid all know at their next elections that we will not stand for this anymore and they are the ones who are fired.
There are a couple of core issues on the block here. The peoples anger is not "caused" by the government, it's caused by a combination of things, government actions are just part of it. People are losing their jobs while these AIG execs are being rewarded with taxpayer money for running their company into the ground. It's almost too unbelievable to be true. Anger, resentment, loathing...it's already there. What these dumb****s like Dodd and Frank are doing is exacerbating an already bad situation by lying and playing political games to cover their ass. Now we have the personal safety of some of these AIG douche bags in jeopardy because of another group of douche bags are fanning the flames. And Barney ****ing Frank should be impeached for his actions. As has been pointed out by others, when you mess up just say "hey, I messed up, I'll correct it, I'm sorry." Or better yet, just be upfront in the first place. The train is barreling down the tracks full speed and we have a group of idiots wearing conductor hats saying "I'm not touching the brakes because I didn't start the engine!"
This is the kind of **** that will make me vote third party.
And Zimmer, will you come back down to reality and stop with the Nazi bull****? Godwin's Law will kick your ass.
