But you fellows are still losers. Health Care Bill. Stimulas Package. Education Bill in the Healthcare Bill.

And the economy is slowly pulling away from the brink of the Second Great Republican Depression.

Spot on. It's sad Democrats keep moving further and further to the Left. What's even worse is that the Republicans are doing the same thing, leaving millions without representation.

Republicans are moving so far right, just look at Texas and the new priorities for teaching kids. Welcome to the American Taliban.

Well then, we all win, right? He's not gonna single us out regarding who gets all that free stuff is he? Mortgages paid, gas in our cars, change, hope. Winners all. Just lean back in your chair with your hands behind your head and wait for everything to come to you without working. No job available/no job required.

They're moving Left. Many are like LBJ-style Democrats. And in many ways, liberals are moving so far Left, they are becoming fascists. (Funny how that works, eh?)

My God, you have no idea what a fascist is.

Fascism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
<excerpt>
Thus fascism tends to be anti-intellectual.[139] The Nazis, in particular, despised intellectuals and university professors. Hitler declared them unreliable, useless and even dangerous.[140] He said: "When I take a look at the intellectual classes we have - unfortunately, I suppose, they are necessary; otherwise one could one day, I don't know, exterminate them or something - but unfortunately they're necessary."[141]

Doesn't that sound like the republican party today?

Forget representation, they also are spendaholics.

No, and only an idiot would sugest it does.

The GoP sounds like teh Democrats, they want power to spend our money in ways we don't agree with.

The difference is right now they are against this spending spree.

Actually, no it doesn't but don't let that little fact stop you bullshitting. You have a talent for it.

I love the 'graduate level' close. Classic.
