    “If we’re going to stop the government unions’ silent coup, conservative reformers around the country must fight this challenge head on,” Pawlenty wrote. “The choice between big government and everyday Americans isn’t a hard one.”

    Because young Mormon men have served in and studied the languages of foreign countries throughout the world, large numbers of them have been hired by the federal Central Intelligence Agency moved up the chain and therefore are “players” in the policy game. Also- many Mormon men have been hired by the FBI when considering their [...]

    Because one man’s terrorist is another’s “freedom fighter?” or maybe because “terrorist” gets thrown around like “virtually spotless?” or maybe because everyone else has been using it to describe the people trying to kill us while hating our freedom (there are precious few of them from a world power geoblobal perspective- that’s why we set [...]

    For me the critical difference between “inflammatory rhetoric” (otherwise known as messaging) between left and right is the right’s child-like devotion to the “kill ‘em all” cowboy fantasies that lie just beneath the surface of the language that may or may have not been some kind of trigger in AZ. When you listen to a [...]

Otherwise all the concealed carriers would have cut this wack-job down in a heartbeat and lives could have been saved- or so that particular gun-nut fantasy goes.

    union? that just sounds wrong. like “soviet union.” and collective bargaining sounds straight Cuban. maybe they (the limited amount of public employees with some union representation because state legislatures have not made them illegal) should start changing the terminology to something more freedomy and entrepreneurial.

    what a bait and switch. I guess several billions of dollars can get a target off anyone’s back (Wall St.) and on to the back of weaker targets like cops, nurses, teachers and the guys that fix the storm drains.

    If you bought a plane ticket or called customer service about a warranty- odds are high there was an inmate working for 25 cents an hour on the other end of the line.

    How much further right? How about outlawing unions and collective bargaining for public sector workers? And they’ve only just begun.

    terrorism only works as a marketing platform when the so-called “terrorist” is a different color than he who claims that he’s “terrorized.”

    The only “radicalized” Muslims are lonely kids with behavioral disorders and easy marks for FBI agents trying to meet quotas and din-din d’souza. (except of course for the fact that he is not and never was a Muslim and “radicalized” from the Catholic church to christian fundamentalism.
