    You tried this before to no avail. I NEVER brought up the case. You did. If it means so much to you - you start a thread on it and discuss it. It means NOTHING to me and I never brought it up. The fact is a simple one: you are not on the US Supreme Court. Those that are, those who have the legal power, disagreed with you. Accept it or not. It means little to reality.
    haymarket, what is your opinion of the SCOTUS case that struck down mccain-feingold?

    for the purposes of discussion it is not irrelevant

    of course you can pretend it was based on sound legal reasoning and precedent which it was not to justify your support of the idiocy we have in terms of a bloated federal government today

    and if a court were to say strike down the sham wow health care power grab believe me you statists will be screaming how the Obamacare is consistent with the fdr precedent.

    There's no class envy at all. I'm perfectly happy and comfortable in my life. i don't need to have excess. I do however care about the people in this country that are struggling and don't mind paying my taxes to support my country.
    See....I don't buy into your philosophy that he with the most wins....or that more is always better. If fewer and fewer people in this country adhered to that philosphy, we could return this country to being a great country again.

    if you want the country to be great you have to deal with the fact that the current tax system which allows the many to vote up the tax burden of a minority has caused a huge expansion in both government and government debt.

    you apparently are upset at the rich wanting more is bad yet you support a system where your dem masters win elections by spending money on the many while allowing the many not to pay the bills

    a couple hundred billion here or there
    astonishingly cavalier, ie, don't run on that platform

    we're currently overspending on the order of a hundred billion dollars every two weeks

    is the slasher seriously considering taxing the rich on the order of tens of b's each fortnite

    is there even that much rich out there

    if so, fine, but tell slash to put it in writing

    great and excellent speeches don't suffice in a crisis

    interest on the debt alone is racing towards a trillion per year

    Now as Keynesian theory suggests that durin good economic periods running a governmengt surplus is in order to fund government deficits during the bad years
    keynes is disgraced, from athens to sacto

    ask cuomo

    why can't the the slasher pronounce anymore the s-word, suddenly obscene

    at the same time it, mindless of math, massively expands medicare's already overstrained, overly depended on enrollment

    physics, anyone?
