Finally! Now here's a topic that I can sink my teeth into!

What? You mean that this isn't the saturated fat thread?

Never mind.
"Hands up, don't shoot never happened"

"Knock it off. Don't become the next Kshartle."

"What difference does it make?"

"We're slipping and sliding towards third worldism."

Throttle is from 1909 and the Insepctors is from 1929.

I think what those posters are really trying to say is "If the socialists come into power that means the current ruling elite will have to find something else to do."

Statism has many different configurations.

I used to get a kick out of George W. Bush telling people that "the terrorists hate us because of our freedom" at the same time that he was hollowing out Americans' freedoms like few political leaders in our history.
"Early in life I noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper."

If they hated us for our freedom then, they must really like us by now
