    Sorry, it is utterly lacking in credibility to say one has not heard conservatives and Republicans blame Frank/Clinton on those things.
    We're not talking about a person doing X behavior, we're talking about a single person doing X AND Y behaviors. They have to do BOTH for your claim to have any merit.

    you made a claim that the people who do X also do Y.

    I asked you who does that.

    You respond by talking about people doing X. Not a thing about Y, though.

    Showing that X exists does not prove that X exists along with Y. Thus it does nothing to support your claim that X exists along with Y.



    But I'm sure you believe it, IN THIS MOMENT.
    Which goes to show that either your reading comprehension skills are profoundly delayed, or you like to battle the windmills with the assistance of your trusty sidekick, Sancho.

    The next time the issue is the housing collapse, I'm sure the song will make yet another 180 turn.
    Which goes to show that you gleefully lie to yourself, making you one of the "worst liars" according to your own standards of behavior as described earlier.

    Why, it's a MIRACLE! OR, a convenient amnesia! OR, that fab-yoo Repub bubble (Jon Stewart really got that right, didn't he?).

    Please, PLEASE accept my apology for responding to someone on this thread saying "liberals abhor a free market."
    So you really won't be addressing the actual topic of the thread? Gotcha. Proceed.

    that you've never heard anyone say that Barney Frank is to blame for rejecting putting more stringent regulations on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and that you've never heard anyone blame Bill Clinton for signing the repeal of Glass-Steagall.

    One would have to be either on another planet or actually living in a bubble to not have heard that, esp. a right winger since that was the mantra all over right-wing, conservative media.

    Sorry, but I just do not believe you when you say that.

    The true irony here is that due to his ignorance, he has completely missed the fact that I am calling one of the most rabidly partisan "right wingers" at DP a socialist by using his own standards of that term against him when it applies, and therefore, is completely oblivious the point I am making.

    But, thankfully, I'm perfectly content to **** with the rabid partisans on both sides of the coin for the mindless idiocy they present. It is such a pleasing way to pass away the time.

    When you went to school, you spent a great deal of time arguing to your teachers that 2 + 2 = Watermelon Jolly Rancher, didn't you?

    You are trying to support a claim of X exists alongside Y.

    Arguing that X exists does not do this. Surely you cannot be so delusional as to think it does?


    Sorry, but I just do not believe you when you say that.

    Re: Do you support federal marijuana legalization?

    I'm for complete legalization. There are huge profits in "illegal" drugs. Take the word illegal out and you take the huge profits out. It's capitalism and profits that create the problem. Also, make a note to check if "opiates" have increased illegallly since the Afghan war fired up, because production of opium in that country has increased 30-50 times since we the USA have controlled the acreage. The vicoden, hydrocodone and oxycontin are all opiates and appeared in the new pain therapies prescribed by many doctors. I'm a believer that opium pain therapy is a huge mistake and much too common. Internal protectionism of Big Pharma and the policies that create continuity of profits for Big Pharma are the problem. All those "illegal" opiates in pill form come from Big Pharma. Many of these issues can be hard to face, but USA citizens are used to managed news that doesn't face issues damaging to their profit streams, you know Capitalism. Therefore, I think that grandmaw and my niece should be allowed to grow their own small garden plots of poppies, reefer, cacti, etc. without interference. They should also be allowed to sell their unrefined products at organic food markets. This might also be a way to rescue small farms.

    This like many other issues should be decided at the lowest levels of government.

    That's if you assume that the legal status of a drug is proportional to the scale of its use or even ability. On the contrary I can't get anyone to deliver alcohol to my door but this is possible with cannabis. Similarly Portugal cut drug usage in half by redirecting funds into providing treatment for addicts.

    Geez, another dog thinker.

    Did you NOT say "liberals abhor a free market"? Yes, you did.

    I merely pointed out where it was conservatives and Republicans not only screaming FOR less of a free market, but blaming the less-free market on Dems!

    Get it now?

    Or should one merely respond to "liberals abhor a free market" with a nice, simple, unquestioning "Yes! They do! Evidence to the contrary DOES NOT FOLLOW!"?

    Wow.
