Best of luck? Ok
Well, since you have brutishly told me I need to get an edumacation like ol Bush, here is my lecture to you on Hegelian Dialectic reasoning as used by those who are undermining our country, and please note the infiltration of that intellectual institution YALE by members of Skull and Bones and the famed RUSSELL Trust.
Which, once again, has nothing to do with the context of this conversation.
No matter how hard you try to push this onto me it still has nothing to
do with what I originally posted.
You are living in some world where context does not matter, where you
can just keep pushing things that are non sequitur to the dialogue.
I think we all get it that you are unhappy with the treatment of Sarah Palin
but that just doesn't have anything to do with the original subject matter.
I'm most sorry but repeating yourself over and over will not make you

Now I like the idea of her running for a Senate seat. Too many people, including myself were disappointed that she stepped down from her Governorship. She needs to complete a term in higher office then mayor.

Is the GOP trying to intentionally throw 2012 or can my fellow Republicans truly be that stupid? Michele Bachmann would even be better than Sarah Palin. There is no way I could ever vote for that woman because I have yet to hear anything intelligent come out of her mouth that is genuinely a constructed thought of her own. She cannot even capture 40% of the vote in even her best polling against Obama. If she gets the nomination the race will be the same as 1964.
If you want to throw the election nominate Palin.
I don't agree with everything Ron Paul stands for, but I certainly agree with alot of his positions. It remains to be seen if he would keep his word if elected. It seems most politicians don't.....

She is a smart one. That is what is pissing them all off. They can't figure her out and what/why people like her.
All I hear on ATS is how much we despise big government, new policies, more restrictions on our lives, less privacy, etc, etc, etc. Yet, most of the people on here are liberals? Isn't that like pouring gas on a fire?
The Looting of U.S. Corporations under Reagan...
The "deregulation" that occurred under Ronald Reagan resulted in the takeover and looting of many cash-rich U.S. corporations through leveraged buyouts involving junk bonds.....
This looting resulted in the loss of many jobs and in the significant reduction of pension benefits. Many corporate pension plans that were well-funded and invested in very safe securities were closed. The proceeds were used to set up new pension plans through the purchase of junk bonds. This scam was permitted by the passage of a law that allowed a pension plan to be closed and a new one established, provided that the new pension plan had the same "expected benefits" as the old plan. Pension actuaries were paid off to attest that this was the case. The sellers of the junk bonds made out like bandits. But when the junk bonds collapsed, many retirees saw their pension benefits reduced significantly--in some cases by more than two-thirds......
“To ensure that the mortgage servicer pushes default instead of workout, the servicer is paid double (50 basis points versus 25 basis points) by the MBS to service a loan in default. Why do you think your servicer tells you that you must be in default before it will consider a mortgage modification, a practice known as invited default?
“Simply put,” says Parker, “the government bailout of AIG has actually encouraged foreclosures because the taxpayers continue to fill AIG’s coffers with enough cash to pay out insurance on defaulted home loans.”

"There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years, and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.... [I]n general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown...."
In other words, this conspiracy was international from the start. And, beginning with the British diamond magnate, Cecil Rhodes, it was grounded in enormous wealth -- riches acquired through capitalism, not through the global socialism it envisions for all but the elite. The key players were power-driven bankers, rich corporations, and tax-free foundations that controlled the resources needed to buy the cooperation of publishers,
media moguls, educational institutions, and government leaders across the political spectrum.... www.crossroad.to...
