    Maybe you should take a break, because I never said anything close to that.

The chance you have ever heard of William Blake or understood his philosophy is even smaller than you knowing who John Birch was
    Oh your probably right, but you still sound just like a Bircher.

    really? since you haven't a clue who John Birch was what would give us any inkling that you have a clue about the John Birch society?

    This policy is typical of the way the federal government does business. In case after case, Washington’s web of subsidies and tax breaks effectively takes money from the middle class and hands it out to speculators and have-mores. We subsidize drug companies, oil companies, agribusinesses disguised as “family farms” and “clean energy” firms that aren’t energy-efficient at all. We give tax breaks to immensely profitable corporations that don’t need the money and boondoggles that wouldn’t exist without government favoritism.

    You seem to know quite a bit about Birch and the JBS. Perhaps a little too much, eh?

    "...G. Vance Smith, a committed Mormon, now leads the Society. Vance Smith is systematically removing people from leadership positions within the John Birch Society and replacing them with Mormons. One gathers that Smith does not feel that he is accountable to the membership concerning his reasons for the replacement of longtime leadership. There seems to be no accountability factor. Longtime Birchers are leaving the Society en masse.

    I now know that the John Birch Society is a front organization set up to attract and control unsuspecting Patriots that wish to band together to make a difference in our Country. I have heard testimony, after testimony about this strange Society that sucks time and money out of its members. Their Get Us Out of the UN program has been running for years without any positive results, yet they keep encouraging members to devote thousands of dollars to keep this program running. A couple of years ago, I decided to penetrate this austere organization to find out what was going on. The Society had a great Magazine - The New American, and they had what seemed to be a great group of people. After all, they seemed to be against the collectivists that were destroying our Constitution! There was one thing that bothered me about this Society. It was run by Mormons. John Birch was a Baptist Missionary, so what in the hell is the Mormon Church doing with a Baptist Missionary's Testimony? How did they get permission and the rights to claim his name? This Society is a setup folks! Not only is the Illuminati eye visible on Mormon temples, but also the Mormons admit to being close friends with the Freemasons! So here it is, the proof that you need..

    Re: Census finds record gap between rich and poor

    These stupid gap between rich and poor studies don't actually follow the rich and poor, they follow classes. Last time I checked, people are free to move from one class to another by changing their income. If you don't follow people, then what's the point? If I made $5,000,000 last year and $20,000 this year, am I poor? Doubtful, I'm probably still living off that $5 million.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    wow a blog from some nobody that no one has heard of-a philosophy major who has no real experience other than whining about the right.

    his opinion is left wing drivel. The top 10% pay most of the taxes so the handouts aren't being paid for by the middle class

    only a liberal would equate knowledge with support. I am an expert on drug cartels as well. But I am glad your insult towards me is that I am better educated than the lib who didn't understand who John Birch. Go ahead, revel in your lack of knowledge, remember liberals believe ignorance is bliss.
