If you vote against the PATRIOT Act you're not a real PATRIOT. Where is your flag lapel pin at you commie pinko socialist?

BTW Sam, didn't many democrats vote yes on the Patriot Act?

Also I was wondering, how many of you thought Palin was horrible for not preventing her husband from complaining about Mike Wooten?

I got no sympathy. I had to listen for EIGHT YEARS to people and pundits bashing Bush every damn chance they got. EVERY decision he made was picked apart at the cellular level for anything they could go announcing "THIS WON'T WORK!" Every policy was decried "too little too late" BEFORE IT EVEN HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE EFFECT.

Now Obama's gonna have to deal with the same shit. 'Cause thats American politics nowadays. I wish it weren't that way, but it is.
My god, I was fairly convinced I was the only person on the damn board who thought like you do. I didn't vote for Bush OR Gore in 2000, but in 2004 I did vote for Bush because he had managed to do something very few politicians had managed to do, and that was win my respect.

No, he wasn't perfect. Yes he and his administration made mistakes. But damnit, he did take the country's security seriously. I remember one press conference a little while after he started authorizing strikes against terrorist locations and personnel, he reported, that they had captured many terrorists and fugitives and many others "well, they won't be harming anyone again". There was a LOT of applause at that line.

I don't consider myself a Democrat or Republican. I will vote for the person I feel can get the job done. I do not feel Obama is that person. I don't agree with his ideas about the economy, I do not agree with his ideas that Government is the only thing that can fix things. I don't agree with his skin color. I don't agree with his choice of friends. Yea, I'm bringing up the racist whackjob pastor, and the avowed bomber.

But, he got elected, fair and square. I only hope people's desire for unspecified change doesn't disappoint them or worse down the road.

I am curious what this has to do with anything.

Of course, Mr. Palin was used to allow the Governor plausible deniability in this matter, because it wasn't her strongarming Alaska politicians into railroading her brother-in-law.

So tasering a 10 year old, threatening to kill his father in law, and drinking on the job is okay in the Traveler's world?

The Patriot Act passed 99-1. Because after 9-11 everyone was scared shitless and nobody was thinking clearly and all of the civil liberties and rights to privacy that it trampled over didn't seem to matter back then.

And I don't understand your second question. I think it's pretty awful that Sarah Palin and her husband basically stalked Mike Wooten, tried to get Walter Monegan to fire Wooten because they couldn't, then fired Walter Monegan for NOT firing Mike Wooten because they COULD, and then couldn't keep the facts straight about exactly what happened and how much pressure they did or did not put on various people in connection to this guy!

And just so you know, the reason why Walter Monegan DIDN'T fire Mike Wooten is because all of the alleged things that he had done HAD ALREADY BEEN ADDRESSED. He had been investigated, suspended for 10 days, the case had been closed, THE END. That, and "the troopers operate under a union contract that restricts the circumstances under which a trooper can be fired.[45] "

So even though he was still drinking on the job he shouldn't have been fired? And the fact that he kept on working that way because Walter Monegan allowed him to get away with it shouldn't have been addressed either?

In this thread, Charion can't deny that Glenn Beck is a crazy motherfucker, so now he wants to talk about Mike Wooten.

In many ways, Sarah Palin is like Jesus. I can only hope that the Lord sees fit to relieve her suffering and bring her back to us as well.

Yes. And it was a stupid idea for them, too. "But he helped!" is not a valid defense. (and the shit Bush did goes way beyond the Patriot Act) Next?

This is relevant to Beck...how, again? Oh right. Its not. Regardless, there are ways to get abusive officers fired. Getting your relative to abuse her power and pressure for their removal isn't really one of them.

Slanted? All we're doing is quoting the man's own words. And mocking him for it.

Read the first link. Here it is again.
Quote:
The Nine Principles
1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.


12 Values
  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Friendship
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
More or less in order, starting with the first list:

1. Ok! But for Beck, that tends to mean "No matter what." Sorry, throwing people into cells for no reason and torturing people is NOT good even if the Good Ole USA is doing it.

2. First Amendment, meet Beck. Beck, first Amendment. If you want to believe..that's perfectly fine. Just don't harass those who don't, or try to impose your rules on other religions.

3. Fine. Does he actually follow this?

4. I didn't realize Beck was an anarchist?

5. This directly contradicts 4. And I sorely doubt he actually follows this; most people tend to be all "ra ra law and order" until THEY break the law, then its all "Well, I had a reason..."

6. Fine. Except if he uses it to go where I think he's going to.

7. Hey, what about point 2? "What you do to the least of my children you do to me" and all that. He's also apparently never heard of side-effects. Namely: You spend government money to do X (say, house the homeless) so you DON'T spent money to do Y (hire extra police to deal with crime from people on the street)

8. Fine! Where the FUCK was he the past 8 years? I'm willing to bet in the "Critism is traitorous" camp.

9. See 8.

Not going to do into detail on the values, except I see very little of it in the GOP or from any of the talking heads.

And this is the relatively sane stuff.

I mean, you do have folks like Beck predicting a holocaust on good honest Americans, so just giving them ideas on how to feel more like they're actually being persecuted.


Sorry if it was in too bad of taste.

When the fuck did I say any of that?

Please cite some actual fucking sources saying that "Mike Wooten continued to drink after he was suspended because Walter Monegan let him get away with that."

And please keep in mind that part of the terms of the initial suspension were that if he acted up again, he would have been fired.

I just finished typing up a 4 paragraph response to this but I erased it because I'm not going to bother trying to reason with you. Most of what I have to say would just get me banned anyways.
