“how can you get a resisting arrest charge if you didnt do anything to get arrested in the first place? Why do cops think they can tell people what to do and if you dont listen to them you are in trouble? Their job is to enforce the law not their personal desires.”

“so you guys do understand that it was the gop pressing to get the facts on the leak? it was another scandal they were trying to push. So when they do this its wrong but if they did nothing it would've been wrong too at least in certain circles. I for one believe that the only thing the government should be allowed to keep secret is launch codes and certain military specifications. There is no reason that someone should be deciding what we can handle.”

“not so sure about this one. overall life expectancy has risen do to a drastic decrease of infant mortality and deaths caused by childbirth. If you look at life expectancy of people that already made it to , say, forty its not that much different. Particularly among-st the wealthy which supreme court justices tend to be.With new advances right around the bend this could be a problem soon.”

“Not true! Check the facts regarding Supreme Court Justices and their demise. 
US infant mortality is much higher than other developed nations. Regardless, the appointment should not be for life, according to many people. ”

“I don't understand the ignoring of reality. the women and minority candidates put foreword by your party lately were barely experienced and relied heavily on catch phrases that were easily proved wrong.attention to details and proper reporting do not make the media liberal.”

“I hate listening to you guys repeat the same things over and over without any true understanding of reality.First of all , unlike on your side , liberals dont all think the same and dont all ignore evidence that contradicts that thought. Promoting science is not "outlawing religion" No one has made any attempt to outlaw religion.In fact churches and the like get tax-exempt status and other perks. Most liberals just think its better if you don't have to be forced into it. And class warfare and redistribution of wealth?! Pointing out facts about the differences between extractionism and capitalism is not class warfare. Pointing out that we have the income inequality of a third world country while maintaining one of the highest productivity rates in the world is not class warfare. Trying to not become bankrupt and homeless because of a medical bill is not class warfare. Tanking the economy while reaping a huge windfall then getting another glut of taxpayer bailout money then trying to tear up the social contract is. And judging by the fact that the top one percent has made 120 percent of the gains since the end of the recession its also redistribution of wealth to the top. You understand this is what you are backing ? All because you have an assumption about what others are trying to do you miss what your people are doing under your nose.”

“Hey best of times.. how long did big oil get those subsidies? Why shouldn't green energy? Do you even understand that we don't pay a third of what gas actually costs? The price at the pump does not reflect subsidies, wars started in the name of " strategic interests' (read; oil), taxpayers funded clean ups of oil spills,or the various health problems associated with the pollution it produces.so when you are saying you are mad about spending,green energy should be ideal for you. No need for a huge military presence around the world big cut in healthcare spending no spills during transport..this failure to think things through seems to be a common problem on the right”

“They have a couple of strikes against them, going forward. 1) Their unity is pretty much gone with all the internal bloodletting that's brewing. These guys are as likely to sabotage each other as they would the President. 2) They've gotten into the bad habit of promoting failure after failure (see Karl). Rewarding people who let you down like they accomplished something is only incentive for them to let you down all over again.”

“more "factoid" talking points. life expectancy includes people that die in infancy or young age. Many more of those in 1935. You need to look at life expectancy for people who made it to retirement age or this is lying to people. Also those who are retiring at 55 arent collecting social security they are doing it off of their other investments.I've heard this shoebox of IOU's crap before . you should cite that quote because without context it is disingenuous at best. and your fourth point is based entirely on assumptions. for instance , no cap change, no immigration reform and so on.”

“The thing that must be remembered is who robbed the money out in the first place? Why was al gore so for the "lockbox" . If there is anything wrong with social security solvency it was done on purpose. why should we ignore that and then do what the thieves wanted us to do when they robbed us in the first place. And to all those repeating the talking point of privatization brings choice, think about it for a minute. How many retirement plans and pensions just disappeared over the past ten years?”

“I think individual welfare would be a better use of funds if you were trying to better the country or "provide for the general welfare". The reason I think this is because the people who receive welfare spend all of it . And all of it is spent here in america.And its taxed up through the chain of supply. corporate welfare on the other hand ends up in a bank in a tax shelter and doesn't do much. and the corporations still benefit from individual welfare because they they get more consumers and they can get away with paying lower wages and letting the government pick up the slack a la wal mart.”

“The statement that legalization of marijuana will increase consumption is so bogus. First off when people just feel like having a joint and unwinding they either have to buy more then they actually want or go to the sketchiest people to get a gram or less.if you could just go to a coffee shop and have a joint that's all you'd get.also who doesn't smoke weed because it's illegal? Nobody. This is morals wrapped up in quasi science. There is absolutely nothing wrong with smoking marijuana in your own home and the only thing treatment for it does is brainwash you to believe there is.”
