I thought I could resist, but I couldn't! I'll take the bait! :) I
hope you take it in the spirit of debate that it is meant.

I'd be curious as to any liberal source who denigrated an at-home mom.

Fortunately, your pals the republicans made it almost impossible for
individuals to declare bankruptcy while their friends the corporation
can stick it to creditors (ie banks/taxpayers) with business as usual.

Are you saying that we should not have an inverted tax structure or
just that we should not close tax evasion loopholes for corporations
or wealthy individuals?

Besides, with "faith based initiatives" the government can now
officially sponsor churches that it agrees with and bypass all that
secular government stuff like non-descriminatory hiring practices.

How do you figure? Can you say "warrantless searches",
"extraordinary rendition", "DMCA", "Patriot Act", "secret TSA travel
lists", "bypassing the FISA court"? Sure. I knew you
could. Granted, that the Democrats have been absolutely worthless is
trying to defend the constitution from Dubya and the Republicans from
wiping their ass with the Bill of Rights so I guess they are complicit.

You are kidding, right? I would not have thought that anyone with
even a minimal training in science and the scientific method would
confuse science and religion. Tell me that this was just a cut and
paste job from the Rush Limbaugh site!

See above references to republican wiping ass with bill of rights.
>* faith /n./ The belief in a power greater than The State.
Or belief in something that you know ain't so.

Great examples throughout history of capitalism run amok. See "Stock
Market Crash", "Depression", "Robber Barons", "National Highway
System", "Savings and Loan Failures".

Would not argue with you on that one.

If that does not scare the hell out of you, it should! This would be
the same advisor purportedly advising David Koresh, Pat Robertson and

I guess you mean a growth in the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us?

Sure. "Healthy development" such as allowing wealthy ranchers to use
public parkland for free to graze their herds or clear cutting old
growth forests. Perhaps strip mining some public park land would
clear the deadwood, underbrush and diseased trees? It would
certainly prevent those devastating fires!

You mean like Saddam Hussains Weapons of Mass Destruction? Or how
about the link between Al-quieda and Saddam Hussain? Those lies were
used to justify the most abhorrent military adventurism since the
Spanish American War.

The last I heard, the Republicans outspent the Democrats by a margin
of about 3 to 1.

Getting into Iraq in the first place. See reference to honesty.
>* laziness /n./ When the poor are not working.
Or the voters are not paying attention to what their elected
representatives are doing.
>* leisure time /n./ Time off deserved after working hard.
Like Dubyas famous continuous vacations to Crawford?
>* liberal(s) /n./ Followers of the Antichrist.
That comment is about as scary as calling countries "axis of
evil". Was this another cut and paste job from the Rush Limbaugh site?

You mean like actually teaching science in science class and leaving
the religous teaching to religous institutions?

As opposed to our friends at Halliburton and Exxon corporation?

See previous section on wiping your ass with the constituion. So we
will destroy our freedoms to protect out freedoms? Think about it!

The stench from Abramoff was pretty far reaching. Republicans don't
have a monopoly on graft.

As opposed to selling their votes/power to corporate lobbyists.

Besides, using Diebold voting machines will eliminate "incorrect"

Thanks Eric! You give good fodder!
