    ROTFLMFAO.
    Retarded.

    Now... Leibowitz might have done it because he's a Jew and Cat is a Muslim... and wanted to make an under-the-radar political statement to the terror radikals in the world... no hard feelings about their threats and idiocy... but he could have done that on his show.

    Do you remember what happened in America when Yusuf Stevens defended the Fatwa?

Amazing how actual facts get in the way of your opinion as you continue to buy rhetoric. Think that Democrats had no impact on the artificial housing bubble? Looks like the public is fed up with the actual results Obama has generated and we shall see tomorrow.

    Fiscal year (begins 10/01 of prev. year)

    Value % of GDP

    2001 $144.5 billion 1.4%
    2002 $409.5 billion 3.9%
    2003 $589.0 billion 5.5%
    2004 $605.0 billion 5.3%
    2005 $523.0 billion 4.3%
    2006 $536.5 billion 4.1%
    2007 $459.5 billion 3.4%
    2008 $962.2 billion 6.6%
    2009 $1785.6 billion 12.5%
    2010 $1471.0 billion (est.)10.0%
    But that's the difference between me and you, I know the facts and I can admit that my president and party of choice has flaws. I'll say it right here, the Democrats naively believed everyone had a "right" to own a house, Obama didn't follow through with some of his promises, and his spending has been out of control. You on the other hand are obsessed with representing your party, and your potent, malicious hatred for all Democratic politicians and supporters keeps you in complete denial of some of your parties and president's catastrophic policies during the last two terms. And that is what "our" rally was about, restoring reasonableness and sanity, looking at the problems found in both parties and trying to find real solutions instead of picking a side, adopting every single issue without question and backing every single politician without any objectivity.
    I'll keep my guns, freedom and money, you can keep the change.

    Add onto that the resulting cacophony when both sides were trying to play over top of each other simultaneously. The underlying message in that skit/performance was layered, poignant and very accurate.

    Actually the difference between me and you is that I understand the role of the govt. whereas it appears that you do not. Didn't see signs supporting the Tea Party or the Conservative movement but I did see a lot of displays of insanity where results are ignored and rhetoric promoted.

    "I won, you lost" was Obama's attitude and that doesn't promote bipartisanship and the results matter. You will notice the results from 2003-2007 if you go to bea.gov, bls.gov, and the U.S. Treasury Dept which also show the results from 2007-2010 but doubt you have any real interest in going there.

    You also don't seem to understand, I don't have a party, I have an ideology, Conservatism, and it is the only ideology that makes any sense. It is a Constitutional ideology that promotes smaller govt. and return of social programs to the states where they belong. It really doesn't appear to me that you know the facts because you have yet to post any as to exactly what Obama has done. It is all about rhetoric and attacking the other side. Results matter and that is why Obama loses tomorrow.

    Running a country has a lot more to do with value % of GDP, including but not limited to, debt, national security, wealth disparities, foreign policy and so on.

    The Republican party has veered far away from true conservatism in many ways. I'm still waiting to hear you criticize some of the Republican parties policies that were implemented during the last two terms, and to then offer some assurance that if we vote for Republicans tomorrow it won't happen again.

    So, essentially, you're saying you're the biggest dick in this thread?

    Nice, but it doesn't change the fact this is a guy who OK'd the Fatwa against Salman Rushdie... and of all the artists they invited to a... Rally... to ... Restore ... Sanity... they chose someone who supported a religious and state assassination plan.

    And why was this man a threat? Writing a book.

    Perhaps we should invite those who want to kill cartoonists next time... or those that kill film makers.
