    I will let the world know when Fitz has something worthwhile to say.

    Translation: Fitz got shown up for the neocon foghorn that he is....and no matter how many times/ways he tries to lie or BS his way around that, the chronology of the post will always be his undoing. I'm done with the Big Fitz-ing idiot.

    You mean you're leaving USMB?

    Marvelous.


    Oh, and if you're going to stick around, please, find me lying. I know libel is second nature to you but... prove it.

    Post 350, 352 and 376. In these post, folks, Fitz maintains claims and assertions that he cannot/will not back up with valid, documented facts. Nor can Fitz supply the same to disprove what I've posted. Nor can Fitz answer simple questions or acknowledge when he's proven wrong by documented facts and the logic derived from them. This makes Fitz a liar folks...at least to the rational adult anyway. But all Fitz will do now is just deny, lie and repeat his silliness. So be it...having the last word (however inane) for Fitz is more important than honestly discussion an issue.

    That old rag "the liberal media" has been the biggest BS mantra since Clinton got elected.
    It was a fear tactic then as it is now. No one believes it.

    Fitz still has nothing worthwhile to say; the fizzle simply cannot provide the good evidence for his points.

    new congress to quote constitution tuesday, new house rules radical, congressional house rule 19, it?s like the republicans think that the constitution will somehow save them from gay people, the poor, it's not the job of congress to rule on constitutionality.

    Maybe it is time for an ammendment to the constitution taking that power away from all of congress.

    Hope springs eternal.

    You obviously can't tell when someone's fucking with you. Makes it all the funnier. Pop a Midol, I think it cures bitchy, and a Haldol to cure the rest of what ails you.

    Oh, And quit inserting your words in my quotes.

    The last refuge of the defeated neocon scoundrel..."it's all a joke". :doubt:

    Fitz is too much of a p***y to admit when he's been proven wrong, folks.

    If and when it does, I'll be the first to stand up and cheer about it doing so. NO Congress should be so arrogant as to believe it has the authority to pass ANYTHING where the Constitutional authority for doing so cannot be found. If it bites Republicans in the ass someday, it means the authority for what they wanted cannot be found in the Constitution either and should be abandoned because the authority for it exists on the state level only where it probably belonged all along or with the people! And NOT with federal government!

    It is a terrible mistake to allow federal government to constantly erode and usurp the rights, powers and authority of we the people either directly or indirectly by taking it from state government. Government that is closest to the people is the most responsive to them -and that will NEVER be federal government. It is the nature of the beast that it constantly seeks to expand its power and authority -but it can only do so by TAKING it from another level of government or by depriving the people themselves of it by claiming new powers and authorities for itself -as we saw Pelosi and chums do insisting federal government had the "right" to ORDER all citizens to buy the private goods of their choice or face punishment! (And in her arrogance she smirked when asked where the Constitutional authority for that existed.) Madison wrote a warning for a future generations about what is at stake when future generations become lax and doubt that government can go bad and turn on its own people. It can, it has, it does. A government never turns on its own people -until it does. But in order to do so it must first accumulate the power to do so and will only turn on its own people when their ability to stop it is significantly reduced. In this country that can only be achieved a bit at a time and government will ALWAYS do so by first using as an excuse and under the guise of something that sounds positive and touchy-feely, playing on EMOTIONS. All in order to grab more POWER. Exactly what happened when Pelosi, Reid and Obama passed and signed that healthcare bill ORDERING all citizens to buy a particular good in the private market just to exist -or face government punishment. Some people support that because they happen to LIKE what government was ordering people to buy. But that IMMEDIATELY becomes legal precedent whereby the people have already given government the authority to order everyone to spend their money the way government wants or be punished. Supporting this bill is in essence agreeing that all your money actually belongs to government and not you and therefore government can legally tell your how to spend any part or all of it. It is agreement that you are a government owned slave and agreeing government owns your money and has the legal authority to tell you how to spend it.) But the next time government ORDERS you to spend your money the way it tells you or be punished, it won't be so touchy-feely and you might finally come to your senses and object to government claiming that authority at all. But now you no longer have the power to stop it because you already GLADLY forfeited the right when you LIKED what government ordered you to buy without stopping to THINK that LIKING what you are ordered to buy just to EXIST in this country - has nothing to do with whether government EVER had the right to order people to buy anything or not in the first place! And it does NOT! And liking what government would order everyone to buy is IRRELEVANT to the equation here. So it is the responsibility of a free people to keep the natural tendency of government to expand its powers in check, spotting the disguises it takes to do so and stopping it - and never placing one's trust in government to be benign or REMAIN benign! POWER corrupts. That is a hard and fast TRUTH and FACT. The solution is to keep the power disseminated and dispersed in the hands of MANY (we the people) and prevent it from becoming centralized and in the hands of a few. This is a never ending lesson that is being played out all the time somewhere on this planet and throughout man's entire history -proving over and over that GOVERNMENT is inherently UNTRUSTWORTHY and if a free people intend to remain free, it will always require their constant vigilance to keep its never-ending attempts to expand its power in check. Or lose their freedoms and see their own descendants pay the price for it with their blood.
