Re: I'll Have You Know...

  You will never have a debate or discussion with people like Shilligan or Bachmann, because all they'll ever do is repeat what they've been told. It's all they know, that's why the republican party uses those emotional issues to get their attention. And, their selfishness is pretty profound too, it shows up time and again when it comes time to do the proverbial dirty work and actually "cut" something, they always want it to start with somebody or somewhere else and leave their perks alone, it's the common trait among them.

 

  A good example is them wanting to privatize SS, but don't touch their Medicare. It's the same with government subsidies, and how all the right wingers here wail about the supposed lazy members of our society and how they supposedly don't want to work for their handouts, but not them. Then they all claim to want to see them go away, along with the USDA, except that reality tells us a different story when they all meet to give their input into the next Farm Bill.

 

  But, they all have those fictitious "bootstraps" also. I can think of less than 12 actual "true" republicans, ones that don't try to ride off of some entities' output(namely the government) or someone else's productivity or labors, instead of doing it themselves.

Re: Somebody, got hood-winked, and it wasn't the Democrats

Congress has oversight duties to the FED. You don't think the dem congress and the white house were/are having conversations with the fed? Congress was/is allowing this to happen. This is scary stuff, Bruce.

2006 is when the dems took control of Congress. Spending was out of contol during the years you specify. Even more out of control now. Gold started its amazing run higher in 2008.

Re: I'll Have You Know...

Oh My God! Now you are under the illusion that you are some sort of king maker.  Like you alone have the authority to pull the plug on anybody. You are embarrassing yourself Craig. You need not say everything out loud just because it enters your mind.

 

I think you and Ollie share the same thought processes for a very specific reason. You are one and the same. Which explains both of you are overcharged with self importance.

  LOL, yeah, if he was as "impotant" as he thinks he is, he'd be somewhere else than Indianola, Iowa and not here doing his Shilligan routine.

 

  But he's not.
