So, who will they pick next? Mussolini? Atilla the Hun? King John?

chucks

It was probably pretty easy for Mao to become a hugely successful world leader after killing 70,000,000 million people that apposed him.
Not as slow as many, but I am pretty sure that if my number was 70,000,001, I might just go with the program.
But hey, the bitch did say outright that Mao was one of her favorites.
Next thing you know, you will be defending Farricon (sp) for his saying we must withhold medicine from some ill because the world has too many people in it anyway.
It's progressive.

KS

I understand that they are selling tee-shirts like hot cakes in China that have a picture of the Barack and caption below says "Oba-Mao". Not surprising that
they are more perceptive, because they know the experience too well.

mrogi

Democrats publicly praise Cuba's Castro and Venezuela's Chavez. It's no surprise they get linked to Chairman Mao and Communism.

joanie

no one who claims knowledge...

Oh come now, Michael. Read the above post by "chunks of ignorance" himself and you know that your talking to the fixed news choir and they really, really don't have any knowledge at all.

And they like it that way.

Hour Number Two

Mao was a tyrannical, murdering asshole and he is White House Communications Director Anita Dunns favorite political philosopher!

chucks

Glenn Beck is going to destroy you people. You might just as well grab your ankles. It is coming for you.
There may still be a chance to stop the two ominous attacks on our republic, Oblahblahcare and Cap&Tax.
We are going to get rid of Harry Reid and next year repossess Congress from the neo-commies.
We are seeing a little light at the end.

AuthenticAndrew

the little light means you're dying

Florida Woman's Rape Called A "Pre-Existing Condition"

joanie

Thank you, Andrew. I enjoyed that. I rhink chux will have to look that one up.

I would say that Beck is doing an excellent job of destroying the Republican Party. 20% . . .15% . . . 10% . . .5% . . . I think we must be getting close the number of people who watch Fixed News.

Better be careful, chux. Your charm is wearing thin. Seems like we are seeing the real ignorant and shallow guy underneath all that salesman's charm.

chucks

If I ever become the lonely old #&$@ that you have become, I will be concerned joanie.
It is difficult to imagine the disappointment you must see and feel every morning when you must face the mirror. Pity.

(yep, charm is dwindling. Bet you have brought the worst out in many a man in your miserable old life)

joanie

I keep laughing at you chux. Everything I say about you is proven over and over in your posts. And all you can do in return is make juvenile remarks about my looks or loneliness. You'd fit in real well with the KBR boys. And you still don't get it.

Speaks for itself.

Brian

"the two people that I turn to most..."

That says enough for me.

Van Jones, self proclaimed Communist radical and now this. I think I see a pattern emerging here.

Thank God we have Fox, Beck & the rest to keep tabs on these radicals, Acorn etc. Our country needs the checks & balances they provide, without them our heads would be in the proverbial sand.

AuthenticAndrew

you're just mad because the country is pulling out of recession while Democrats are in charge.

Lucas Foxx

It's fun watching these nutjobs self-destruct after holding so much power, driving the country into a ditch, and cheapening the dialogue. They deserve the irrelevance the Hannities and Becks are setting them up for.

AuthenticAndrew

Here's one for our conservative friends

Ted Smith

When the Allies were preparing to drop the Atomic bomb, we needed to estimate the weather over Japan. We had weather stations on liberated islands across the Pacific but needed some information from China to extrapolate the conditions. So we made a friend with a guy who was fighting in the hills of China and gave him supplies and a radio to give us weather reports. Guess who?

Coiler

Part of the Dixie Mission.

AuthenticAndrew

Reminds me of when we helped that Osama bin Laden guy out in his fight with the Russians.

Coiler

Yes and Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam in 1983

Somebody needs to brush up on their Civics:

"Thank God we have Fox, Beck & the rest to keep tabs on these radicals, Acorn etc. Our country needs the checks & balances they provide ..."

Checks and balances are provided by the Constitution, not Fox et.al. Another example of blurring the lines between government and cable networks courtesy of the right.

Brian

Please, spare me the civics lesson & perhaps you should take a refresher?. The blurring of the lines between Gov't & media is most closely illustrated by MSNBC. It's amazing how blind some of you get when worshiping upon the Obama altar. WAKE UP! Thank God for independents & blue-dogs, without them we would surely perish.

sparky

My goodness, you must have been a drama student, Brian. Tell me how your life has changed for the worse since last January 20? What can you not do now that you could do on January 19 that is causing you to wet yourself so?

AprilMayJune

Brian: I don't worship on any altar (agnostic), but I PTL (joke) that I am not a tea-bagger who is disdainful of the "book learnin" required in civics lessons. Or do you get all your civics knowledge from Beck?

Crystal from the old KIRO chat

Wake up Brian just who is the president of FOX? Oh that's right Roger Ailest the Bush buddy that helped him make a phoney commercial to tank Dukakis. Now tell me more about the blurring of the media and government.

KS

Your jugment is definitely blurred.

sparky

So KS, what cant you do today that you could do before January 20? How has your life been ruined?

Coiler

They have a singular message ("socialism" this year) which will become only more divisive and unhinged as the days go by

dog e fresh

What’s wrong Bri? These gals takin’ you to task? What has changed since January 20th? Besides you wet pampers that is.

KS

Nothing yet Spar-coil on the surface, but do you ever consider the future ? For instance, have you checked the future budget forecasts that you and our children and future generations will have to pay for ?

See a glimpse of it on the following website
http://www.pgpf.org/

sparky

Well Brian said we were all about to perish, so I thought you could fill us in.

As far as scary spending...mega billions have gone to Iraq. It was never even a line item in any of Bush's budgets for 8 years. Just think what that money could have bought.

Puget Sound

well sparkles
if you think the 400 billion deficit that Pres Bush ran was bad then if you are going to be intellectual consistent the 1.4 TRILLION deficit should make you really upset.
imagine what that can buy!

Crystal from the old KIRO chat

Oh stop the shit that deficit you are talking about was Bush not including his "war" into the deficit
you didn't mind when Bush was pissing away the money on two insane wars and totally ignoring domestic concerns.
nice try Pugert Sounder.

Puget Sound

'crystal meth' from the old kiro chat, i guess then the fact that Pres Obama has continued those 'insane wars' has no meaning to you?
or the fact that since 2004, Pres Obama has ran on the fact that the war in Afghanistan was the good war, the war of necessity has any meaning to you?

Crystal from the old KIRO chat

Yes I know what he ran on doesn't mean I like it however it doesn't change the fact that Bush was not including the his wars in the deficit.

chucks

KIRO's Crystal Meth, Bush did not include the war in his budget but it is included in the deficit.
But let's just get behind our troops, give them what they need to win and then bring them home.

KS

However, Crystal Meth would never admit that Obama has created a worse deficit and is quickly mortgaging the future of future generations. Funny how progressives think (?)
