The only way to change this country's direction
Posted by Sarah Ibarruri on Thu Jan-31-08 09:44 PM

Is for each of us to get involved:

1) to run for local offices
2) to take back our churches from that WHACKO Nazi theology which consists of anti-gay and anti-abortion brainwashing
3) to insist on strict corporate regulation
4) to have a REAL FDA again
5) to insist the rich be taxed at a pre-Reagan rate again
6) to protest till the war is stopped and the embassy shut down
7) to insist on laws to crack down on the entire health industry and to provide health care for those who lack it.

If we don't do these things, NOBODY WILL.

Sorta left out the issuing of standard uniforms and government takeover of all business.  I, for one, will be happy to just check out of my 70-90 hour a week job and let you house, feed, clothe and provide free internets for me.

1) to run for local offices

Who the hell would vote for a nutzoid moonbat who actually admits to posting in DUmmieland, the laughingstock of the internet?

2) to take back our churches from that WHACKO Nazi theology which consists of anti-gay and anti-abortion brainwashing

Take BACK the churches from people who practice the Christian faith?  When did you anti-Christian idiots ever HAVE the churches?
When, in your past, DUmbass, have churches EVER been pro-baby murder and pro-homosexual life?


3) to insist on strict corporate regulation

Weren't you DUmmies crying earlier today about jobs leaving the country?  Do you think corporations are leaving because they feel under-regulated?

4) to have a REAL FDA again

We have a fake one now?  I'm confused.

5) to insist the rich be taxed at a pre-Reagan rate again

Are you gonna stamp your feet and issue a DEMAND??  Those are always funny!

6) to protest till the war is stopped and the embassy shut down

What "war" and which embassy.  There are several of each.

7) to insist on laws to crack down on the entire health industry and to provide health care for those who lack it.

More foot stamping?  Such children!  And BTW, every man woman and child in this nation has access to free health care.

If we don't do these things, NOBODY WILL.

That settles it.  NOBODY WILL.

I get such a laugh out of this knowing that some of the great DUmmie heros of the music industry became what was known as tax exiles from England in the late 70s when they were taxed at 90+ %.

The saran wrap primitive doesn't understand something about "pre-Reagan tax rates."

Yes, yes, yes, it's true that America once had really high income-tax rates for the wealthy, approaching 90%.

HOWEVER, no one ever paid those rates.

I am speaking, of course, of the Eisenhower-Kennedy years, circa 45-50 years ago.

The tax code was riddled with holes, like Swiss cheese.

No way did Joseph Kennedy, Sr., ever pay those rates, and in fact he paid less of a percentage than middle-class and poor people of the time.

The then-wealthiest woman in America (this was the Eisenhower-Kennedy years, remember), Marjorie Merriweather Post, paid zero, ZERO, income taxes, with a fortune in the hundreds of millions (more money then, than it is today).

The saran wrap primitive is waxing nostalgic for something that never was.
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

Life is short, and suddenly you're not there any more.

Take back? What?

Take back? :rotf:

yes, as I recall the puritans and assorted other denominations were once pro-gay and pro-infanticide :whatever: Take back, my happy ass.

As for Nazi ideology, liberals and nazis cozy up real nice when it comes to genocide and cruelty distributed on innocence.

As for the gay thing, as soon as conservatives believe by a majority that gays should be eliminated(eliminated means execuated, not rejected, not looked at cross-eyed, not criticized--those are things everyone has to deal with if someone disagrees with them--gays don't get a pass on being criticized for their choices--sorry)--as I was saying, as soon as the mass extermination of gays is supported then you can come with your Nazi comparisons...before then, put your overreacting bullshit straight up your self-righteous ass where it belongs.

Sarah, Christians have never supported killing children. As a matter of fact the only groups that I can think of that are for killing children are self-centered libs and paranoid pedaphiles.

Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

If it involves giving up pot, cheetos , or getting out of the parents' basement, the DUchebags won't be taking back squat.
