Shouldn't the GOP follow the example of their Iraqi puppets, and take a month off? - Page 2 - Mercedes-Benz Forum

I guess I missed where our Congress is dealing with suicide bombers out in the street. Just another example of the loss of logic on the right wing. More "straw man" bullshit from the Artful Dodger, Mr. Botnst. Instead of addressing the issue of why our so-called "government" of Iraq is going to let our soldiers die in the street while they are on their way to Paris, he pulls a Coulter and strawmans our ass and goes"hey, look over there - never mind this embarassing example of the most fuckedup war fought by our most fucked up "President". Like I said in an earlier post, fundamental intellectual dishonesty. Tell me truthfully Botnst, what the fuck does our Congress have to do with this issue? I am so tired of you lying sacks of shit.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

My favorite argument is from people who think we should pay them more so we can attract better people to run for office. To me, that's f-ing stupid. I think there are plenty of junkie mother fuckers who would be less of a threat to peace and liberty if they were elected than many of the 537 people elected to run the gov.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

You don't want them to be our puppets, but you want them to do YOUR bidding, is that hypocritical or am I making a mistake?

Oh, i thought it was about wanting only the Republican Members of Congress to take-off from work, like the title and first post seemed to indicate.

Next time maybe you could write a title that has something to do with the subject you wish to discuss.

Just a suggestion.

What I want them to do is get their country straightened out so we can get out. And you are truly a first class blood-soaked dope. Tell me, why are our boys dying for these pieces of shit?

Wait, did you just change the title of the thread again?

So when Nancy takes her month off in August will you oil her back or will she oil yours? I don't know how this politics stuff works and I must say, you seem to be an expert.

Seem to have learnt a new word today "hypocritical", eh, Bruce R.?

You constantly decry others' getting personal, but once again your remarks above forfeit you the moral high ground you claim...if you ever had it in the first place.

YOU, sir are a hypocrite and your remarks quoted above are the PROOF.

Part of your problem is that you can dish it out but you can't take it.

Blow smoke up some one elses butt cascade, you have shown yourself up for what you are, a political hack.

As to the hypocrite thing, you would be the one that started that. You can't define it, but you seem to like to call people that.

One more thing, if anyone can take it around here, it's me. What I decry (using your words) is the foul mouth language that some here can't seem to get away from because they have no argument without it. Look back and see if that isn't true. Of course there are some like you that don't have an argument with facts to back up, only feelings and half truths. You knock my service in 'Nam, but you keep going back to that to in some way prove me wrong. You STILL haven't done that, anymore then you have with anything else here. Your "feelings" may carry weight in your world, but not much in real life.
