    Re: Ted Kennedy Dies of Brain Cancer at Age 77

    My detestation for Ted Kennedy is mostly on policy.

    He was nothing more than a "good intentioned" leftist who made a political career by using Government force to take from a productive section of society and give to another unproductive section under the rubric of being compassionate or a crusader for economic or social justice. He sought to break up the cultural and ethnic identity of this country by pushing a multiculturalist ideology in hopes that the new third-world immigrants he sought to bring here would become a large voting constituency for his political party - they have. He "fought" to increase the minimum wage of this country, which conveniently brought more money into coffers of Big Labor as Union contractual raises and wage negotiations are tied to the minimum wage.

    As a person, he was a total hypocrite who posited him & his family as being for the "little guy" all the while enjoying a lavish lifestyle that most people in this country wouldn't even dream of...

    Re: Ted Kennedy Dies of Brain Cancer at Age 77

    So after one of the biggest Liberals who made a career of sucking off the Government teat, caustically bashing his political opponents in the arena of public opinion, backstabbing those who worked with him on legislation, falsely attacking and slandering Supreme Court Nominees and expecting everyone else to pay for his anti-poverty programs let's review what his Socialist agenda has done shall we?

    Has his minimum wage programs made life better for the poor? Nope, the poor are still poor and now more dependent than ever on Government support.

    Did the public housing program make life better for the poor and minorities? Nope, they created drug and rat infested habitats which after several decades were blown up because most were either vacant, in complete disrepair or filled with rats and druggies.

    Did welfare make things better for the poor? Nope, all it did was to create a vast dependent class of citizens in this country.

    The list is long folks; but the bottom line to Kennedy's Socialist endeavors is this; after spending $40 TRILLION on the fight to end poverty, the results are in and they suggest that the efforts to end poverty by confiscating great amounts of the nations wealth has resulted in ZERO.

    I am always amused when Liberals, who's only solution to every problem appears to be larger Liberal run Government bureaucracies and confiscating MORE of our hard earned wealth. Results never mean anything to putzes like Kennedy; it is merely that you “publicly” CARED forget the results.

    Forget teaching self esteem and personal responsibility, it's not your fault you chose to be an uneducated loser or pumping babies out like you are a factory. Forget teaching about self reliance, its not your fault you don't want that FREE education and perform the hard work to make something of yourself. Forget teaching about being a productive member of society, we can get OTHERS to provide FOR you.

    Meanwhile, with Liberals infesting the halls of power in this Government we have seen a spending spree the likes we have never seen in decades with NO end in sight and without a single honest debate about how they are going to pay for all of this, and what do we get from these Democrat retards; its all Bush's fault.

    Here's the Kennedy I remember:

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0hdhLG0g6A&feature=related"]YouTube - Ted Kennedy Chappequiddick Lie[/nomedia]

    Kennedy as a LIAR

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqJtGj4GmtI&feature=related"]YouTube - Ted Kennedy on Surge in Iraq[/ame]
    Kennedy being WRONG again.

    Carry on.

    In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash and hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital at the time he was admitted had shown he was legally

    I have to disagree with this statement; I don't think one is a hypocrite fighting for the little guy even though they may live a lavish lifestyle.

    This is class envy, something I find abhorent. He was a hypocrite, but not for the reason cited above in my opinion.

    he could have used his wealth to help others, while living a modest lifestyle

    It has never been a secret that the Kennedy Family is of the elite, privileged class. "American Royalty".
    They have never pretended otherwise.
    I fail to see why this should preclude them from acknowledging the plight of the oppressed and fighting for human and civil rights.

    Now, his alcoholism is an issue in terms of reputation. That is a serious illness and he needed help. I wish he could have overcome that issue. If there is no proof that he was drunk during the bridge accident nor that he wasn't in shock though, I seem to remember that we consider people innocent until proven guilty in this country. Sounds like the family of the young lady saw him as forthright in the end.

    His record is exemplary and I will not go on to argue why. It's evident.

    If his comments about women are deserving of disdain, and I think they are, I would hope that you think the same about McCain. I'm a feminist and both sides should keep their anti-women garbage to themselves or get educated and learn something about women. It urks me when this happens.

    All of that said, his policy history is great and exemplary. He should be remembered for it.
    My what a short memory the forum Liberals have; why it was only a few years ago people like you were telling us how Bush was a school failure and a moron and only got into Harvard and Yale because of his daddy. Yet today you type:

    “He sounds like a man who had lost his way during his college years. I'm curious, do you all think that people don't mature and grow up?”

    Why it was only a few years ago people like you were telling us how Bush was a a cocaine snorting drunk. Yet today you type:

    "That is a serious illness and he needed help. I wish he could have overcome that issue."

    Why it was only a few years ago people like you were telling us how Bush was a lying corrupt crook. Yet today you type:

    "I seem to remember that we consider people innocent until proven guilty in this country."

    My only conclusion can be that you have a profound double standard for what you think is acceptable, what you consider being good Government policy and very selective sensitivity.

    When I see such double standards being applied coming from the Bush bashing Conservative haters, what also happens is that your credibility suffers.

    I am thinking your credibility is just about zero about now.

    Dang.

    And all of these years, I though Meals-on-Wheels was designed for the underprivileged. I didn't realize they were delivering caviar and champagne in Manhattan. Silly me.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    You don't believe that he did? I would beg to disagree with you on that one; his family did indeed give a LOT back to the community; his mother founded the Special Olympics among some of the many altruistic endevours of this wealthy family.

    You have to give people credit where credit is due and drop the weak attempts at class envy.
