But more often nonsense..I can make a better case that the Unions, who control Obama's teleprompter, are really responsible for the current economic program with its save the unions at any consequence actions.

Re: Interesting Op Ed

Except the unions aren't asking for a trillion dollar bailout. It's one thing to view unions as yet another lobby who vie for legislative attention to have laws that are favorable to them. It's quite another to equate them to failed financial institutions grabbing tax payer money to bail themselves out. There is a world of difference.

Re: Interesting Op Ed

So did Noam Chomsky. However, knowing JimV and Lamont, I am sure that they will dismiss these opinions because:

1 is from Al Jazeera, Noam Chomsky is a commie pinko and Simon Johnson is a bleeding heart liberal (if he wasn't, he wouldn't be saying such heretical things). So, unless they hear it on Fox news, an opinion, no matter how accurate doesn't hold any water with them.

Re: Interesting Op Ed

The banks have not gotten a trillion either...they got a few hundred billion. Unions, who own the democrats, got their own billions. Read the language in the PorkFest...almost 100 billion for education (100% to the folk in the unions). The Porkfest was designed to pour hundreds of billions into democrat special interests and did.

I actualy dismiss it because it is simply not true. It was an opinion piece not backed anything other than that opinion...show me the numbers. No numbers, no reality.

Well, he sort of said it was an op/ed in the thread title. Ann Coulter writes op/eds for a living as well. I'm sure we can find one that supports the lady from Al Jazeera.

Ann Coulter.

That guy has one big Adam's Apple.

Coulter would be a good choice to bring in to this Al Jazeera stuff. Didn't she used to fornicate with him?

Well, it was Al Somebody, and all those Muslim guys look and think alike, so it may as well have been him.

Coulter's audience must have their irony filters on "Maximum" to sit and listen to a serial fornicating social conservative who eschews marriage and child rearing while telling others what to do.

Yes, but that is not what I am saying. I am saying that the piece does not provide any evidence, facts in support of its position, so one can either agree or disagree and be equally right. I find the argument nonsense without facts and figures to prove it. Others seem to believe simply writing is is fact enough to support the idea...

It's just business. One of Coulter's best friends is Bill Maher.

Capt. Nately: You talk like a madman.

Old man in whorehouse: But I live like a sane one. I was a fascist when Mussolini was on top. Now that he has been deposed, I am anti-fascist. When the Germans were here, I was fanatically pro-German. Now I'm fanatically pro-American. You'll find no more loyal partisan in all of Italy than myself.

Capt. Nately: You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

Old man in whorehouse: You have it backwards. It's better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know.

Capt. Nately: How do you know?

Old man in whorehouse: Because I am 107-years-old. How old are you?

Capt. Nately: I'll be 20 in January.

Old man in whorehouse: If you live.

Does the number 42 refer to Douglas Adams' The Hitchhikers Guide To The Universe?

Had one of them in an old Camaro. It had dual Holly's, other engine work, headers, glass packs and enormous amounts of horsepower. It used to keep breaking the lugs on the rear wheels.
