Well-written, and flaming.

The conversation here has sunk to a low intellectual level that parallels with right-wing pundits. Fewer ideologically based and more thought provoking posters would be a refreshing change and probably bring more substance here, which is influenced by the loss of the gop - just sayin'

"Why are these prisoners the problem of other countries? It's the unfinished business of King George the W, and you should be asking him. But here's my solution: there's a "secluded safe haven" as it's brochure advertised, just outside of Dallas, TX. There's still a lot of land available (probably because of its exorbitant price), but if we get in there right now, we can claim it as our own for this important cause (that's what we do. Oil is a really good cause, for instance). Texans are patriotic, God-fearin' white folk, and they don't mind welcomin' newcomers into Preston Hollow, the exclusive up-scale neighborhood where Bushler is now living. They can pave a bike trail around the new detention center, where Texans can ride their Huffys with their Winchesters at the ready, doin' their part to keep Texass safe from persons Bush imprisoned since 2003 without charges, lawyers, or trials.

Drew, what would you suppose we do when we come across combatants and such on the battlefield? We could have done what our enemy does -you HAVE noticed that they don't seem to keep American soldiers as prisoners, right?- or we can remove them from the battlefield to sort 'em out. Once we determine that they are not a threat we need to return them to their country of origin.
Shock of shocks, the countries don't want these people back. A real puzzler, eh? Now WHY would that be so...c'mon, I know you can answer that.

Or will it be back to yet another pseudonym...kind of funny. Will it be Highlander? We'll keep our fingers crossed. Maybe Storsie can make an appearance. It's been awhile. LOL .

But nice dodge. The real question is that Pres Obama is going to adopt YET another Pres Bush policy is my bet. Oh it will be postured differently but in the realm of defense he is pretty much Bush.
Or 'Bushler' as Coiler likes to call him.

I prefer pundits of moderate and deeper thought. David Brooks, Thomas Friedman and Charlie Rose. If that sounds foreign to you - its probably because you believe the left wing is intellectually superior. Don't fool yourself - maybe they are adequate, but they lack common sense and sensibility. Much of the mainstream media are mental midgets and ethically challenged. I have never been impressed with leftwing thought and emotional logic (an oxymoron). Their creativity is good though and they have a place.

When they get control of the government, they get out of control and lose their sensibility, become tyrannical and expand the culture of corruption - I'm talking about the progressive-tyrannical left. We already witnessed the progressive-tyrannical right with the Bush Administration. A note to the usual suspects - Look up the definition progressive before you respond to this - you will probably be surprised and a bit dismayed.

Nailed it again PS. LMAO

gullible
"someone who will swallow anything thrown at him."

"There is the whole right-wing indoctrination mantra in a nutshell."

Yes, the right wing is also too black and white, as is the left wing. Gullible is true in reference to Sparky and rest of the Progressive tyrants. A better word though is willfull ignorance. It takes a bigger person to admit they may be wrong after doing more research. Moderates and traditional liberals understand this. So far from here, nothing but little people.

KS, spot on.

God this weather sucks. I want to go back to the sunshine.

joanie

Spot on, Baba. Almost unreadable, isn't it?

Roz, you out there? We need something interesting to read.


BTW, John Sununu guaranteed papa Bush that Souter would be a conservative. Funny how putting that magic robe of integrity on drives some people into honesty, isn't it? Especially regarding Bush v Gore...


Bush vs. Gore (2000)

Though he was among the four in the minority in the decision giving George W. Bush the presidency by suspending recount of the Florida vote, the case and its political overtones were reported to have haunted Souter and contributed to his desire to leave Washington and the high court.

In his 2007 biography of the justices, "The Nine," legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin wrote that Souter was tempted to resign after what he saw as a crudely partisan vote by his fellow justices.

"At the urging of a handful of close friends, he decided to stay on, but his attitude toward the court was never the same," wrote Toobin. "There were times when David Souter thought of Bush vs. Gore and wept."


I like an honest intellectual man.

Sparky, you can have your veggie chuckles and duffman(aka Ho - why would anybody want to call themselves Ho? Didn't Imus get in trouble for that?) and KS can kiss booty on spootsie. I'll take an honest intellectual man over them any day.


joanie

Too bad sputsie doesn't get paid by the word. He'd beat out Bill for top drawer in the wealth department. God, what a mundane boring ponderous non-intellectual.

I think I'll change his name to spot-spot-spotsie!

sparky

Danny Bonaduce would like him.

KS

Another patently insane outburst by Ph(J)oanie. Why do you dwell on old and stale news ? because your aren't getting enough attention ?

Intellectual - Like you ? hah ! Too bad Souter didn't leave the court then, instead of wait until now. Doesn't mean he was being honest - his actions did not reflect that.

It would be spot-on not spot-spot. If your'e going to mock someone - get it right- Sheez...
