    Now, they don't talk about that on Fox much, but that's how it works. When something breaks because you didn't care for it properly, then you cringe and pay the money to get it fixed. Toyota, Ford, and others invested in smaller cars and green tech cars... while GM kept building boats that didn't even work.
    According to this theory the US Government should have bailed out Nash, Packard, Studebaker, etc. in order to 'fix' these companies.

    It seems that Democrats believe that the government can manage any sort of business, and that BHO's previous experience qualified him to run auto companies. Perhaps, had Obama not taken charge, American's would be walking everywhere.

    It's not about Conservative or Liberal -- it's about any party that pushes for change toward a better way. You Beckians now have the word 'Progressive' distorted in your little heads, thanks to your master and his "history" lessons.
    Do you have facts that people like the HC bill?
    How have we distorted progressive? It's the same as liberal, but when liberal got unpopular Hillary Clinton and others started calling themselves progressives? I use them interchangably. Am I wrong? If so please explain.

    Illinois was a part of colonial America in 1891? Interesting to say the least.

    Incorrect -- they didn't employ 1M people. And weren't some of those buy-outs.

    It seems that Democrats believe that the government can manage any sort of business, and that BHO's previous experience qualified him to run auto companies. Perhaps, had Obama not taken charge, American's would be walking everywhere.
    What far-rightie-philes forget is W. would have done the same thing. What was the better plan from the right to deal with GM, Chrysler, and AIG. Same thing, just less transparent, more corrupt.

    Re: Glenn Beck rally will be a measure of the tea party's strength

    I finally read about this little tea festival this week and I said it in another thread, but I will say it here.

    I imagine Glenn Beck will ride in on his gigantic balls hoping down the mall, Mrs. Palin will be sitting on them along with the King's family estranged relative, bouncing all the way up the steps, past the flock of hover-rounds, around the bend of faux-neo nazis, bad mouthing the real neo-nazis with a wink and a nudge, and then, reaching tucked under his massive balls will be two tablet sized chalk boards with commandments all free thinking Americans that don't need to be told by the government what to do (but by GB) what they should be doing to take back America.

    The next week will unfortunately not be about the military's future warplan in the middle east, or the ailing economy, it will be about Fox letting Beck jerk off in their mouth, and the rest of the cable news talking about it. Fox will make it look like a real historic event (ie moon landing, Gettysburg Address) whereas MSNBC will paint it as a KKK convention, and CNN will try their best not to talk about it but can't ****ing help it because they are just as big of whores as the other 2.

    Yep, God bless America. I think that those that bitch about him most, just don't bitch about him. Let people enjoy him, let them come to the realization that he is nothing more but a tool to sell them overpriced coins, or make them feel guilty about 9/11 for no reason other than to empty out their pockets. Go about your business, let the guy say what he says, and eventually he will fade away into obscurity where he needs to be.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    How can one "reclaim" something that was never theirs to begin with?
