You know Kiryan, one of your biggest problems in trying to convey anything in a manner which would make us care to listen is a complete lack of attention to detail. For instance, mispelling someone's name by adding several extra letters. I really don't get how people manage something like this, it's not hard... her name is 4 letters and you've ONLY ever seen it written so how could you mess it up? One of my friends does that too, and she's perhaps the most ditzy person I've ever met. So you're certainly in good company! :P
If I was going to go Tim McVeigh on the USA,
A few weeks ago you posted that you felt like flying an airplane into a building, and this week you posted how you think we should start a revolution because our side passed some legislation. Step back a bit and think about that for a few minutes.
You may know you won't do anything drastic, but no one else does. Good thing for you Bush wasn't "smart enough" to infringe our freedoms by creating a department monitoring obscure BBS threads, or you'd probably have a black SUV sitting in front of your house by now. Just don't say any of this shit on the phone, considering the whole warrantless wiretapping thing.
(I LOVE how it's only a problem when the Democrats do something, but when Bush _actually_ takes away your rights it's just supporting America!)
There is a point where people decide revolution is the proper course.
Yes, usually when they are starving. See, things are pretty good right now. No revolution for you, sorry!
I'm going on record saying I think its justifiable today. I won't personally be involved in any violence or "materially support" it, but I won't condemn those who do.
Of course not. Why would you care if people get killed over petty ideological differences? Your party lost the vote, and did not retain enough power to be effective. Worse yet, they were not willing to work with the party that IS in power in any way, shape or form. I can see why you are a Republican, you share with them a very distinct lack of respect for anyone but yourself and your own greed. You lost. You were outvoted. The majority spoke and elected the Democrats to do exactly what they did. You want to do better next time? No, you don't. You want to take your ball and go home, or hurt people, or lash out.
Republicans lost the election fair and square, however this clearly crosses a line.
What line? The people in power did their job. We voted for them, they enacted legislation. It was even in their platform for getting elected. If they HADN'T pushed this bill through? You'd be calling them out for being ineffective despite having a majority. You are not being reasonable, you are not supporting America, you are being small minded and petty. You are throwing a temper tantrum. The Republicans are encouraging this, by the way, in a bid to gain more power in the next election. They are casting this bill in the worst light possible, after refusing to negotiate on it, and despite it containing provisions the Republicans themselves supported before Obama came along, so that you will be pissed off and motivated to vote Republican in November.
You are being manipulated by the Republicans.
Do you want to go on record saying healthcare reform was passed responsibly and tell me how proud you are of how Obama and the Democrats pulled this off?
Yes. They kept a campaign promise despite Republican pettiness. The bill itself could be better, but it's a start towards what we elected them to do. Sorry we had to do it despite you, but you care more about being "right" than about improving the country.
I'm not proud of the collosal waste of time the monica lewinsky scandal was.
Despite just using it to prove how bad Democrats were? :roll:
Are you proud of what your party is doing has done to the poltiical landscape?
Getting something done for a change? Yes, quite nice actually.
Do you expect the GOP to just roll over and play dead?
No, I expect them to throw a temper tantrum (like they are now) and stir up as much shit using hyperbole, lies and propaganda as they can in order to regain power. That's all they care about. They don't even pay lip service to improving the lives of Americans anymore. They don't even pay lip service to small government, fiscal responsibility or anything else that they should be. They care only about getting power, manipulating you, and feeding their own incessant greed.
The Democrats did what they said they would do.
The Republicans, in 8 years of Congress, only increased our debt, increased the size of our government, and lied to you repeatedly.
If Democrats had actually reached out and governed from the center, we would have the change Obama promised. No, Obama and the Democrats charged a very leftist course and said we don't need you, support us or we'll just do whatever we want anyway and when Scott Brown got elected they said now we'll just win by any and all means necessary.
You're either with us or against us? Sounds familiar somehow.
On the other hand, I've been considering backtracking and just going with the flow because I'm not really happy with where I am today. I don't like being this angry and pissed off.
But if you're not angry and pissed off how will you be a good little tool for the Republicans? How will they manipulate you into keeping them in power? How will they use your riots as propaganda to show how unpopular this healthcare bill is when they are running campaign ads in a few months?
Come on, man! Get pissed off, use your anger, create a scene! Make sure there are camera's nearby though, and have some good one liners ready. Otherwise you won't make for good propaganda!
As a Christian it really doesn't matter what government you live under so why am I putting so much energy into worrying whether I'm forced to buy health insurance, stop drinking soda ect. None of this stuff is really important in the grand scheme of things and I'm probably taking it to the point of idolatry. Man I really hate being regulated by the government.
You really hate what Republicans tell you to hate. I didn't see you this pissed off when the government was actively spying on it's own citizens. You want to talk about regulation? The Bush administration violated the constitution to go 1984 on us, and you get pissed off because the Democrats passed a bill using perfectly legal means.
Wake the FUCK up.
