    The Below the Belt 'Demon'crats

    Everyone see that FAT PIG Kennedy and idiot Joe Biden grill Future Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito? That imbecille drunken murderer Kennedy doesn't hold a candle next to Alito. Kennedy, Biden and company are the poster boy of the left. What a sad sight. The left of the US are disguisting.

    Sorry, I was actually watching the Alito hearings for the chicks

    What can I say, I'm a hobbyist, always on the prowl for women.

    Who's the brunette to Alito's left (not his wife)?

    She's kinda cute; reminds me of the lead singer from Swing Out Sister in the 80s. Some nice legs seen in the Senate chambers from the ladies.

    hey daydreamer

    Nevermind the Alito hearings. Yes, they're a joke. He'll be confirmed easily. But, how can you be a republican and use escorts? Do your fellow republicans know you hire escorts? Do they do the same all the while preaching about what awful morals Democrats have? What would the religious right say?
    Reminds me of the priest in Nebraska who preached constantly against homosexuality. The police later arrested him for trying to pay a man for sex...

    Republicans are not solely from the religious right. I don't like paying HIGH taxes. I want a strong military. As for abortion, I don't know how I feel. I wouldn't have wanted my mother to have had aborted myself. There are those who call themselves liberterians and are for legalizing prostitution. Republicans have many flavors, just like Democrats. It's just that the extremes of both are getting the most attention.

    Oh come, that's not where the problem is.

    When your rich, paying taxes is a joke for you compared to the poor guy.

    John makes 1 million, paying 500 000$ of taxes.
    Mark makes 20 000$, and pays 5 000$.


    John will have to wait 1 more yr to buy his new street legal McClaren F1.
    Mark will have to cut his "food money" because of the gas prices rising.

    John and Mark both work hard 40 hours week. John is not smarter than Mark, he just go to college because he had the money, probably because down th line in the past, his family screwed someone else's.



    Btw, If the poorer would get richer, reducing the margin between the rich and the poor, it would cause great a depression. The balance in economy is everything for the power to buy stuff, and it has to stay balanced thats why you've got 10% of the rich, and 30% poor, 60% middle, and not the other way around. Get 30% of the rich mean the poor would die cause can't buy ANYTHING, then all you've got are rich ppl, then the 1$ means nothing, blablabla.

    Daydreamer, no offense, but you're from liberal NY state...look around and you'll see that while not ALL republicans are from the religious right, they are guiding the party now. The Pat Robertson types are setting the Republican agenda. Even if you don't agree with them, by voting for their party, you're indirectly helping them when in fact, southern and midwestern republicans probably resent you alot more than they do liberals.
    Yes, Ted Kennedy is awful. But, given the two nauseating choices, right now I'd prefer the Democrats for a variety of reasons, but mostly because they're in too much disarray to really f*&^ anything up. The republicans scare me because of their religious bent (nationally) and their ability to get things done.
    I don't want politicians who get things done. Every time they pass a law, or enact their agenda, we have one less freedom...

    Respectfully disagree on this. The White House is constantly having to disassociate itself from his outrageous comments like the recent shocker about "God is punishing Ariel Sharon for trying to carve up Gods lands" (in an effort to continue the peace process) by causing his near fatal stroke. He went on to make a bigger ass out of himself by saying he has met Sharon and likes him, even feels bad for him! Can you imagine saying soemthing like this about anyone you knew let alone claimed to care about?! "Sorry about your heart attack (insert friend or family members name here) but God is punishing you for something!" Or how about "I'm sorry your mother passed away in that fire, she must have been a real bitch in the eyes of the Lord!"

    Outside of his audience, he is viewed as an absolute idiot by any who have heard his hate filled propaganda/outright calls for assassinations. He won't be setting any GOP agendas anytime soon. Actually he is making himself more and more irrelevant every time he spews hot air out of his putrid blowhole.
    "I can picture every move that a man could make
    getting lost in her loving is your first mistake

    Sometimes I think its a sin
    When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again"

    I agree with zygezon regarding the Captain's comments about the rich being hit by taxes just as much as the less fortunate. Just remember, Capt, that certain taxes like those on goods and services, like the provincial sales tax, hit everyone regardless of income, therefore hurting the poor and middle class proportionally more than the rich.

    I was off to imply that the Republican party is dominated by Pat Robertson disciples specifically, but yes, they are dominated by the religious right, and George Bush is one of them.
    I'm still not sure why we invaded Iraq in the first place, since they had nothing to do with 9/11, and our campaign there has undoubtedly weakened our military. I did get some insight from a former co-worker, though. He said-and he was serious-'we're going into Babylon to get rid of this evil dictator'.
    Scary stuff, and he was not alone. If this is how some people think in New England, I can't imagine how religious conservatives think in Texas...
    (Yes, I know that not everyone, not even every republican in Texas is a religious conservative)

    Regand, you're a walking billboard of the Hardcore left. I bet you have memorized every Extreme leftist talking point.

    I've never met you, but I bet having a conversation with you would be like conversing with Howard Dean's Parrot.

    I would replace #1 with establishment of permanent airbases in Iraq, an ideal, centralized location for future actions in the Middle East. In addition, permanent listening stations for monitoring of terrorist communications could be built.

    Even before 9/11, the military had lamented about lack of properly located airbases from which to launch heavier aircraft such as B-52s, B-1s, and B-2s.

    Iraq, the most secular of the Middle East nations, would provide the most hospitable environment for construction of these bases and US personnel as well.

    Hey, Daydreamer,

    You appear to disagree with Regnad regarding the reasons Bush invaded Iraq. If you believe in WMDs or to stop Iraqi support for terrorism or restoration of democracy, your handle is appropriate. You don't only dream at night.

    If the reasons the Right cites are valid, why hasn't the US invaded North Korea?

    Daydreamer: Democratic Senators said nothing of value during the Alito hearings.

    Everyone else: Yes, but overall, Republicans in general and W specifically are pussbag idiots.

    Daydreamer: (ignoring the fact that everyone ignored his original comment) NO WE'RE NOT YOU GUYS ARE THE IDIOTS I HATE YOU LOSERS!!!

    Everyone else: Bush is the perfect juxtaposition of world-class idiot and evil genius. So there. No matter what you say, I just bring up Bush and this trumps everything else.

    As Abe has said in the past, "Politics is a big shit sandwich and we all get to take a bite." That doesn't necessarily mean that we can't have legitimate, intelligent discourse about valid issues without devolving into the typical my-idiot-is-better-then-your-idiot crapola. Let's face facts: There isn't a single one of you out there that would be willing to let either Bush OR Kennedy babysit your kids. We're so caught up in this banality that no one can get a word in edgewise about anything meaningful.

    Is abortion a federal issue? Why argue state's rights for one social cause (marijuana) but not for another?

    Supposing that a new supreme court determines that there does not exist a federal right to have abortions. How would this really change anything? How many states would be able to pass any meaningful restrictions on getting abortions?

    If the issue is so fundamental, why can't we just change the constitution? It's been done before for even dumber crap (alcohol).

    I know this is an open discussion area, but this is ridiculous. First of all, this is the Montreal forum. Second, this board shouldn't be a platform for political mudslinging, much less for another country's politics. Third, republicans are not exactly the bastion of integrity and wisdom, a sentiment that tends to be especially strong in Canada. Hence, I think this thread is merely troll bait.

    This may be a Montreal board, but this is the Lounge (open area), and many of us are American, such as myself, EB, regnad, SpecialK, Uncle Kracker, just to name a few.
