I am assuming that since this gentleman references such a great intellectual movie failure as Judge Dredd, that his cognitive abilities are somewhat impared. I am also assuming we are talking about a man who renounced his citizenship, joined overseas terrorist groups, spoke about attacking the US, and was linked to several terrorist activities. I am assuming that if Dick Cheney had tortured him first, it would be ok. Remember, matt, that there is a bogyman out there with a great conspiracy theory for you.

Thank the lord for dusty. Your blogs are always, and I mean always, full of falsehoods, exaggerations, and miss direction. Anyone who has researched the ammunition situation can find that it is another example of dumb Republicans trying to make an issue out of NOTHING. Check the facts before you bloviate. Also, this Ayers thingy, another right wing huff and puff over nothing. When was that again, thirty some years ago. Yes, dusty, you are one loser blogger, always have been, always will be.

I liked Matt's letter, Judge Dredd reference included, even though I've never seen the movie. Small aside: plot descriptions abound on the net, centerish.

Referencing a character like Judge Dredd is using "descriptive language" which liberals can understand or appreciate only as it would advance liberal causes or ideas.

It is really too bad when a non-lib has an imagination, isn't it?

You DO realize that Judge Dredd was a book first, right?

And despite the crimes that you name, does that mean you give up the rights you are guaranteed? I am assuming that because Obama's doing it, it's OK in your mind. Remember, centerfield, that there is a blind partisan storyline out there with a great excuse for you to make.

I feel I have to come together with BillyG on this one as he says more Vietnam deaths of our soldiers occurred under Nixon than any other president....and I know he would not distort the truth on that...just would not...I'm pretty sure...

“The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: ‘I stand for consensus?” Margaret Thatcher

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government …you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested homes…you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of Unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can't find work … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor buys iPhones, TVs and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Matt, I am guessing you have not looked up the definition of Terrorist. You supported Mr. Bush when he killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in the name of big oil and WMD's. You have such a strong sense of right and wrong.

Sorry, but the whole "Bush did it too" doesn't work anymore. That line is merely an excuse for hypocritical, unprincipled, blindly partisan political hacks to avoid taking intellectual responsibility and ownership for the misdeeds and wickedness wrought by their political support and continued enabling.

Say, are you able to produce some actual evidence that I'm supportive of what Bush did, or was that just another of your childish "I know you are, but what am I" bits?

Gosh matt, are you sensitive now. You did vote for the man twice. Now, someone in the past said that if you did not learn from history, you are bound to repeat it. Certainly the actions of your party/leadership cannot be swept under the rug because you cannot defend the actions. But, you did support them at the time. It is sad to see you resort to the age old "I'll just ignore it."

"Certainly the actions of your party/leadership cannot be swept under the rug because you cannot defend the actions."

centerish, this phrase would certainly be worth putting into the archives, to be used as needed, if I did that archive thingy that billgrr et al do so well...

"The president now openly claims the legal authority to summarily execute American citizens accused of certain crimes without the benefit of due process . . ."

Actually it was your president, King George II who openly claimed that. Remember? Bush contemptuously called it the "Patriot Act" -- and you saluted and smiled.

Stay the course.

I wish this board had a way I could insert a link for you people -- a link back to reality.

Again, "center"field, do you have any evidence of that? Do you even have any evidence that I defended any of that stuff? I can show you plenty of examples of me condemning these activities. Not that it will make any difference to you in your unprincipled partisan hack mind which has already been made up. It's sad to see you resort to the age old "I'll just ignore it."

When a million innocent Muslim men, women and children were murdered in your name -- you laughed and cheered.

Now you're all full of complaint.

All right....since I am now of the left and fully embrace "peace", I feel I must get Dust and BillyG to come together, and put all this saber-rattling aside. Me being the peacemaker, I feel both of you could join me at the Free Lunch Counter Café in Hillsboro, sit down and start with a strong glass of Koolaid...which should settle the nerves and break the ice. As our de-icers are STILL broken. I have a standing invitation for Hillary Rodman Clinton and Kerry to be there, to broker a Middle Eastern ND peace deal. They said they are only coming together on this to get our world famous peas...but will try to work this peace thing in. And if I can swing it, there's a good chance I can get Hillary's half-brother there to help....Dennis Rodman....

All are welcome....and peace...
