    I bet we'll never see you get all uptight if someone takes a swipe at the Righties.
    Would you like to put money on that one? This could be profitable.

    I think ad hominem is lazy as hell. I don't like it, and I call it when I see it.

    Oh I would love to. Please, point out the next time you start a brew-ha-ha-ha when a Lefty criticizes Repubs. Can't wait!

    Thanks for the links, and I am in agreement with you that Bush did increase the size of government, but what he did pales only to what Obama has managed to do in a year's time.

    Only the middle link from the Washington Times cites the real reason for all Bush's spending. The country got attacked, and we went to war on terrorism, something that the Clinton administration ignored while this country was attacked countless times. The Bush administration noted that law enforcement departments weren't talking to each other and sharing crucial data about known terrorsts so he created the Department of Homeland Security.

    The first link lists mainly charts and expenditures, but no reason for that increase in government just a liberal Bush bash.

    The Cato link lists not only spending for the war but spending for labor and economics. Perhaps organized labor should check this link because all I have heard from them was to bash the Bush economics for not doing enough for the working man. The tax cut helped the working man out, not just the rich. It helped everybody.

    There was nothing ad hominem about his conclusion. Do you even know what that means or did you use it because it sounded cool?

    The left does create more bureaucracy and does increase government far more than Republicans or haven't you been paying attention the last few decades? How about the last year? Hell, how about the last few days?

    And he was also right about Political Correctness and being against profiling something the left has been a champion on.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    "Big government liberals" was an insult that had nothing to do with the subject at hand. And, again, it still doesn't, so, I'm not going to respond and further hijack thread.

    I've addressed profiling elsewhere in this thread and a couple others, and don't feel like repeating myself.

    That is not what he said.

    the big government polices coming out of the Left wing of our government.
    If you are going to accuse someone of something, at least try to be accurate.

    Its not a matter of debate. Profiling is something championed by the left. Its a well known fact. Do you really need me to dig up a source?

    Just because you don't like an opposing view doesn't make it an insult. It's called debate.

    Reminds me of the time a bunch of rednecks threw beer cans at me and tried to run me into a mailbox. I flipped them off while throwing the beer cans back at them. They didn't like that. It was okay for them to do it to me, but not okay for me to do it back, just like the old liberal speak. We heard it all the while Bush was President, now it's not okay for us to bash Obama's soft on terrorism policies.
