So now that we are one month into the year, and about to embark on another 4 years of horrendous leadership at every level of government by the two corporate companies running it, it should be fairly obvious that this is a reality tv show, not a democracy.

No one wants these fools. They just REALLY didnt want the other ones.

Kind of a political version of "The Biggest Loser".. haha...

With money in politics being the leading cause of a bought out Congress (Rattigan Rant Here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIcqb9hHQ3E ) , it amazing when you look at the donations that our "elected leaders" accepted. How on earth someone could accept money from some of this stuff, while then using the very money to run TV time to denouce their practices, is beyond me. Its beyond most people.

With Murdoch donating to the Obama campaign ( http://www.politicususa.com/rupert-murdochs-news-corp-donated-59000-reelect-obama.html ), we have to then look at all the other candidates, and see what kind of weird, side show nonsense, and see who else was directly accepting money they claimed to be against.

My guess is its at least 90% of em.

They have a 10% approval rating, and a 90% reelection rate. Thats no accident folks.

I just posted this information on a conservative web site.

Democrats openly accepting money from Murdoch.

The people are being duped, generations of planned reactions and division.

Liberals need to wake up and realize their party is light years away from being liberal, smart, or the least bit aggressive. They are there to pander, to "manufacture consent" to the masses through the idiot box.

Republicans who think their party is about the constitution and less spending, with more economic freedom for them, need to be slapped upside the head as well, to realize they too are being used.

Don't know why this is down voted.

I up vote.

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

Likewise. People don't like facts when it hurts their side...major problem with the political system these days.

[-] 5 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

You mean like facts about Ron Paul?

Facts about Wallstreet?

Facts about conse(R)vatives?

I know what you mean.

[-] -2 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

I'll be the first one to point out conservative BS..the last thing i would do is try to deny facts that are sitting right in front of my face which this post is..and I could care less about Wallstreet....i'm not pro-wallstreet.

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Point some out then.

I won't be holding my breath, so don't count on it.

You denied every fact about Ron Paul presented to you, so I don't hold out much hope for you, but you never know.

[-] -2 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

Hannity, Rush, O'reilly, limbaugh are all lying pieces of crap....a great book that showcases many of their lies and distortions is Al Franken's "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" which i thoroughly enjoyed.

Bush started the covert war on terror and destroyed this country by stripping us of our founding principles through such legislation as the patriot act....he furthered the drone program, ran up the deficit like a drunken sailor, helped to perpetuate and create the housing crisis and increased the size of government to great proportions while claiming he was fiscally conservative.

Republicans continue and increase the size of the military industrial complex when in office and stop any attempts at limiting the funding for it while out of office...while many companies they used to be part of reap the benefits of the financing used to continue it.

Republicans are just as much at fault with what has happened to the country as dems are.

Does that work for you?

Perhaps you could make a similar list for the democrats. It might be an emotional cleansing for you.

"You denied every fact about Ron Paul presented to you, so I don't hold out much hope for you, but you never know."

Facts are the key word there shooz....when you present any-then we can talk.

[-] 4 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

1.) You're pointing out media figures. Will you also pretend they have no effect?

2.) (R)epublicant's always increase the size of government, so that ain't sayin' much. Bush is considered a conse(R)vative. Just because you deny that too, doesn't mean he isn't.

That's one of the most fucked up facts about conse(R)vatives yet.

It's like saying he wasn't a big enough asshole.

Whatever, that's the past.

How about something they are doing today?

How about something on what they doing in the States?

The neolibe(R)tarians buy up politicians and bat 'em around like so many ping pong balls, as long as it serves their bottom line..

They have to, it's in their corporate charter.

so no, that didn't work.

All the stuff on Paul was posted, you denied every single one of them.

Every single one. As well as everything on libe(R)tarians.

So no it didn't work.

Just because you deny the facts, doesn't mean they aren't facts, and that's a fact.

[-] -2 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

"All the stuff on Paul was posted, you denied every single one of them. Every single one. As well as everything on libe(R)tarians."

Shooz...please provide these posts....specific topics and my denial of them.

Pretty sure you're pulling stuff out of your ass again...so i'm calling bullshit....again.

My prediction of your response (which you do every time i ask you to back up something):

"I'm not going to dig thorugh this stuff...or provide you with facts that would back up my argument...i'm not going to waste my time doing that"

Soooooo....if you don't feel like it y ou don't really have to respond...because i'm expecting jack shit from you again.

Oh yeah...still waiting for your list.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Whooopie!

A phony quote and a pile of denial.

You ignored most of the stuff on Paul.

He's a phony and you know it. Look no further that the fruit of the tree, if you don't want to look on the forum..

Which puppet are you?

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

"You ignored most of the stuff on Paul."

You can't provide me with anything i've ignored! Seriously man...like back up just a little f'n snippet of what you're talking about with my comments....or put forth specific points you're talking about in reference to Ron Paul.

"Look no further that the fruit of the tree,"

Right...because every child grows up to have the exact same views as their parents...makes perfect sense. Love your logic. Do you share a mirror image of your parents views?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Some of these are among those that were bumped to the top a few weeks ago and you ignored them.

Have at it, but I won't bump this lying POS thread again.

The elections over. Thank god.

His very name was banned here in the early days, for very good reason.

His entire (R)epelican't career was a fraud.

You ignored this one from me too.

On libe(R)tarians in general.

lol you're talking about posts made about ron paul? I"m supposed to make comments on any post that comes along dealing with Ron Paul? Is that a specific requirement for me? I thought you meant something you said to me about Paul i ignored...not the fact that i haven't commented on every f'n Ron Paul post. Seriously?

F'k no i haven't commented on every post about Ron Paul...there are probably 500 others where those came from that i haven't commented on. Sorry to disappoint.....i don't sit around all day waiting for Paul posts to pop up on here so i can make comments.

"You ignored this one from me too. On libe(R)tarians in general."

So f'n what? I'm not a libertarian. Or am i supposed to comment on every post you make as well????? Generally speaking i steer clear of your posts....i like facts.

Are you insane? IS it your sole mission to go around the internet looking for people to attack?

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

You're the name caller here.

You're the puppeteer.

You should be asking yourself that question.

ah yes

the arbitrary numbering system of money

is being manipulated to put others in power

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

So, is he offering, or not?

You've changed subjects, positions and insults so many times, it's hard to keep up with all your bullshit.

I do have a life.

[-] -2 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

Shooz...you got serious issues man...serious issues.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Unlike you, I'm not a puppet, nor a puppet master, nor am I a part of anyone's posse.

So at least I have fewer issues than you.

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

You gotta seriously be kidding me...you're like the poster boy for the democratic shills on the internet.

Read the book. His assessment on those clowns is spot on.

his "election" was a fraud.

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

We're not talking about his election...seriously read the book...especially if you listen to any of the mentioned names. Just catches them in outright complete lies and manipulations. It isn't conjecture...it's quotes and facts.

[+] -5 points by auargent (-600) 1 year ago

i do not listen to the names you cited.
