    Obama let Felon Tony Rezko give him a $100,000 piece of land that had he been a Republican would have been called a bribe

    He had Jon "I dunno where the $1.2B is" Corzine write the failed Stimulus

    Why are the prominent people in Obama's life crooks and criminals?

    Is that why we got downgraded, because Obama just doesn't give a fuck about convention?

    Democrats have very selective vision.

    'A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

    From bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage.'

    That's a first agreement we've had. Thankfully, we don't have a democracy. Although I would, and others might too, argue that we are in fact, headed down that same roadway. Perhaps Engels and Marx were onto something afterall and just too hate filled for anglo-saxon capitalism to realize what it was they were actually onto; The cycle of civilizations.
