And why did our State Governors give in to DC? Money promised for compliance with Fed rules? It can't last, because human nature desires to be free. Look at the coups taking place in other parts of the world while we seem to be heading in the opposite direction! Again I ask...what the hell happened? My question is rhetorical, but it deserves an answer.
    You mean why is this happening? Because noone thinks it's happening. In other words, Joe Blow will never believe his right to own and drive a car is being taken away until he is pulled over and physically removed, taken to jail and his car taken away. He'll complain about it then - sitting in a jail cell. This is frustrating because we need everybody to wake up if we are going to overcome this. So in a sense, those who are by now predicting the next cliche step towards a totalitarian state may as well just put the blinders back on because we can't act alone.

    Your pegging of me is most erroneous. One of my earlier posts in this thread made it clear that my position regarding labeling, especially when talking politics, is not something I partake in. The mere fact that not every "left wing liberal" can agree on every issue, and that a left wing liberal may agree with a right wing radical on one or two issues, renders the labeling useless, unless the goal is to divide the people.

    As to your belief that I'm "hiding" behind Israel and "afraid" of being called "antisemite", I can see intuitiveness is not one of your strengths. Trust me when I say that I'm really not one to give a fck about what anybody thinks about anything I say, much less labeling me an antisemite, whatever the fck that is. I DON'T CARE. Obviously, I don't have the belief that would be the prerequisite to use the word "JEW" in the negative or derogatory fashion that you would so like me to. Oh, I would if I did!

    And finally, my inference regarding Israeli influence in our government, is not a theory or opinion, it's an observation.

    Then someone like you, not being too concerned with detail and accuracy, would say "it's a duck". I would say "it's something walking and quacking like a duck", until it stopped. Then I'd pick it up, wind it, and send it on its way saying "see, it wasn't a duck".

    And yet, you're still an antisemitic pauligan.
