« Watcha Gonna Do When the Money Runs Out? | Main | I Didn't Fight For Your Freedom »

You should never blame George Clinton.

Unless you invite him to your house and later find your stash missing. In that case, blame away.

If you protest the impending war in Nam/Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran..., then you are antiAmerican.

If your sympathies are with Occupy Wall Street (even if you never attend or support), then you are a commie Marxist pinko.

But if you stockpile weapons because the other side won the election, then you are a true patriot.

If you seccede from the Union, then you are a true American. (Bet SC is glad to hear this).

Even going back to the 60s, the conservatives have done a good job of controlling the labelling of the rhetoric as well as vilifying the other side. Then in the 90's Newt's Conservative Lexicon managed to cement the lead.

OTOH, perhaps it can all be explained that a political system based on a mythos doesn't have to be consistent. But a system based on thought and logic suffers in that it has to have a logical consistency.

Funny how it's always politicians themselves or federal contract recipients who holler the loudest about moochers, maggots, etc.

Projection, maybe? (Sarcasm intentional)

I get a laugh-out-loud kick out of these secessionist bozos in Texas. I once counted the number of military installations in Texas, and the number and size of them alone is dramatic, and the figures have shown for decades that they represent a huge flood of federal dollars into the state.

With secession, all that goes away, poof!

Besides, doesn't this idiot realize that Texas still has a little bit of oil, so, if Texas seceded, the U.S. government would just invade and occupy it?
