Indefinite Detention Bill No Longer Faces Veto Threat From White House (UPDATE)

Commented Dec 15, 2011 at 01:03:25 in Politics

“So indefinite detention of terrorists, huh? When will the definition of terrorist be expanded by Washington to also include the Occupiers? This is the most frightening piece of legislation since the Patriot Act, and arguably more destructive.”

Litho-stone on Dec 15, 2011 at 01:14:29

“well, if you have more than seven days of food in your home, you are on the list.”

“Reminds me of what happened to the_browwnshirts. They were the Fuehrerr's men then one night they were_eradicated!”

“The Occupiers and anyone who protests or expresses dissent has been labeled a "low level terrorist" by DoD training manuals and various national security agencies since, at the very least, when Obama got inaugurated. That's one thing that's redoubling concern here.”

Driven By Drug War Incentives, Cops Target Pot Smokers, Brush Off Victims Of Violent Crime

Commented Nov 25, 2011 at 17:17:27 in Politics

“It's one thing to enforce the law, it's a whole other thing to enforce a law purely for profit. Cops are put in this situation by their superiors and politicians who see only in monetary terms. The War on Drugs is really the War on Low-Income Individuals.”

GOP Debate: Romney Aide Struggles To Answer Immigration Question While Attacking Gingrich

Commented Nov 23, 2011 at 14:15:51 in Politics

“I don't want to get anywhere near a Newt Presidency, but at least Republicans will tear him apart for the one thing I agree with him on. "Amnesty is un-Amurican. Deport 'em illegals before they get anymore of our here jobs!" The biggest threat to the American way of life isn't undocumented workers coming from other countries, particularly Mexico. It's Washington that sees only things that can get it reelected, it's corporations that couldn't care less about its worker and thinks only in terms of profit, and it's Wall Street that doesn't even care about the country it's a part of and has been shredding it apart for years. These things are truly un-American, not the people who came here looking for a better life, which unfortunately may not happen anymore.”

Newt Gingrich: Child Labor Laws Are 'Stupid'

“And it's those darned safety laws which are restricting our children to be truly productive members of the workforce. We should bring back chaining their ankles to factory looms for at least 12 hours at a time to ensure the best possible workers.”

sieiantn on Nov 21, 2011 at 19:44:16

“Yes ! I agree with you wcsminorcircuit! But after we strap their ankles to the looms for 12 hours a day, we make it all "better" by putting a Bible in their free hand! What better way to assure their alliance with the Republican Party! And then when they grow up, they will vote for people like Newt because not only are they always "right", but even better they will become "Christian Right"!”

“It would help them to focus and teach them the value of freedom once they have lost it.”

Michele Bachmann Met With Opposition While Speaking To Students At Drake University

Commented Nov 21, 2011 at 14:04:41 in Politics

“She has to quit with the "get a job and things will be okay" rhetoric. There are far too many people without jobs right now who are struggling to get hired by anyone, and there are far too many people with jobs who are struggling to make ends meet. I question if she's serious about running for president. She says she is, but her actions make her, an already laughable candidate, even less of a viable option for Republican voters. If her job is to alienate her base by telling them to stop being lazy and get a-workin', then mission accomplished.

On another note, I don't know if "drilled by students" is the best choice of words here. It didn't pass my "tee hee" test (which is that I, Mr. Immature, giggled a bit reading it). I mean, tea bag used to be an innocent term too.”

“George Orwell should have entitled his book "2011" instead of "1984."”

“Whatever. A joke's a joke. No harm done. So The Roots mocked her on TV with a song. Bachman mocks everyone's intelligence every time she lies and passes it on as the truth, which is every time she speaks.”

“Murdoch's had a stranglehold on politicians throats with his "news" agencies. Of course News Corp felt like they could do whatever they wanted; it was the political environment that essentially gave them that power!”

“I don't see a problem with a person owning a bunch of different companies in various countries, but you're right: the real crime here is the quasi-monopoly Murdoch has of the media, in the US and elsewhere. That should never have been allowed.”

RobietheCat on Jul 22, 2011 at 19:51:59

“Murdoch should never have been allowed to own media in this country as a foreigner.

Just another terrible thing we can thank Ronald "I don't remember" Reagan for.......”

“no... i think we've learned that global size is just as much of a concern as it is here in the US”
