  2. Odd how colin powell makes statements about his area of inexpertise "economy" but completely mum on "benghazi".


    :D

    The people who keep thinking powell is a republican are also the one's who think the moon is made of cheese.

    Excellent video. That's how it is.
     
  4. The first thing the GOP needs to do is expel people like pspr and lucrum and pt . . . once they do that, you will have the old USA back again.

    hee hee, Powell says that Obama has started no new wars. Republicans didn't start ANY wars, they were in office when we got attacked and they retaliated. When Obama took office Al Qaeda was in 2 countries, now they are in 30 or so. I suppose that Obama views Al Qaeda as fellow soldiers in the struggle against western imperialism or something...
     
  6. Powell says that Obama has started no new wars.
    ------------------------

    I'm not sure I understand this statement. Who were we going to start a war with that Obama took no action?

    Oth, Barry started a war on the "fat cats". What was OWS?
     
  7. Kinda hard to expel someone who's not a member.
    The old USA, you mean like a return to thrift (both personal & govt) and meritocracy?

    That's all I want.

    Thrift makes sense for very nearly everybody but I don't think we ever had meritocracy.. lodge buddies promoted lodge buddies, blacks/amerinds/latinos were excluded no matter the level of their talent, etc...
     
  9. I think they are seeing this. Mittens has thrown the hard right completely under the bus during the debate cycle. Now, he is a man that a lot of folks would vote for.
     
  10. And folks like pt know this. The old boy club is what they are fighting for, they precisely DO NOT WANT a meritocracy.
