>Maybe you should post on the Alabama message board.

@#$%& you. I live in Alabama and I'm not a redneck. You exhibit the same tendency towards sweeping condemnations of stereotypes that you pretend to condemn. You're as bad as any redneck conservative.

gosh steven, how very unlike you to equate tho who don't agree with your pathetic puerile non-logic as 'left wing'...
but you don't stop there...just like a good little o'reilly/limbaugh clone that wants to desperately justify all kinds of lies, murder and mayhem and still keep their little chickenhawk business' going...
... and feel good about it...you must, for some reason, continually insist on equating people who don't agree with your puerile pathetic non-logic as "bomb throwers"...

that's exactly the level of hollow desperation i've come to expect from you, and you seldom disappoint...

the 'tewwist' card...as chickenhawk exploiters are always first to start their hysterical viciousness into an a discussion...which is exactly like lobbing a bomb here...and now, watch it explode in your face.

btw, you never did answer the question i asked months ago about what your little business was, where the products were made or whether your employees had health care or a living wage...

you always wanna talk about market ecoonomy philosphy, until it gets really real...then we're 'bomb throwers'...what does cheney's butt taste like?...
gosh, between that and rush's viagra, oxy and gay asian-sex vacations, you should really be feeling your oats...

so ty for clearing this up...anyone who dosen't agree with you and other rapacious little bizness dweebs is a terrorist...got it, thanks...

some intelligence here (u can drop out here steven)
couresty david sirota:
Despite the fact that NAFTA and China PNTR have helped destroy American wages and jobs; have increased our trade deficit to crisis proportions; and have been a key weapon in preventing global environmental and human rights standards, the people who predicted such outcomes are still regarded with contempt and berated with false attacks, while the people who championed such awful policies are considered the legitimate voices of reason. Jeff Faux spells this out particularly well today over at TPM Cafe:

"Why is it that in these globalization discussions among college educated professionals, it is always the integrity and motivation of those who challenge the corporate line that is suspect?...Have you asked free-traders if they want to see children in India go blind making rugs, union activists tortured and murdered in Columbia, women workers locked inside filthy factories in China? Or laid off manufacturing workers commit suicide in the US? Of course not. Then why ask me to prove to you that I don’t want to keep the Chinese poor?...It’s a measure of the pervasiveness of class in our culture that “liberals” begin a discussion about globalization with the assumption that political virtue lives on Wall Street and political vice at the AFL-CIO. If anything, the argument for NAFTA was the less serious. It was based on promises of jobs, reduced immigration and prosperity among the Mexican poor that promoters knew were false when they made them. It was a crappy deal for workers in all three countries. Why such contempt for people who turned out to be right?"
The answer, of course, has to do with where the money and power is. The Establishment is reflexively pro-war, and - for obvious reasons of profit making - innately supportive of "free" trade deals that are chock full of corporate protections (patents, copyrights, intellectual property restrictions) but stripped of basic protections for human beings (wages, labor standards, human rights, environmental regulations, etc.).

But still, there is something troubling when these innate biases consume the entire debate and those who have been so utterly and completely right are utterly and completely berated as illegitimate. It speaks to a political discourse where the "reality-based community" is totally replaced by what I would call the "post-factual" era - a period in time where the dialogue does not even pretend to be based on any actual evidence or concrete information and where the most factually wrong are paraded around as the most right. And just a quick look at the chaos in Iraq or the economic havoc being wreaked here at home shows that this "post-factualism" does not bode well for anyone other than the handful of elites at the top.

good try moron; i didn't even mention clinton in my post!! don't let that stop you...u responded to NOTHING...as cowards are wont to do always...

u came up with your own agenda 'factoids'...(my post had been critical of clinton's nafta) but you are on your rush limbaugh wet dream here...
and won't debate on the facts...you'll switch the 'reality' around to suit whatever long laundry list of facts you've collected from your right wing web site, and drawn the argument into a whole other dimension...and i won't respond to that...you have had ample oppourtunity to respond on point and have run away scared, as you chickenhawks murderers always do...and continue with the baiting me by calling me a girl, when not a leftie or bomb thrower...

do you think people are so stupid that they haven't observed these techniques ad infinitum from your oxy-viagra ridden radio hosts and talking heads???

do you really think anyone buys your duplicitious kook-aid anymore?
do you really think that anyone in the world who sees this viciousness is too lame to see the parched skeletal ruins behind your synthetic terror conciousness and your attack points...

you have another agenda then this thread or responding in kind to points made on this thread...and that dosen't matter either, because you will continue to lose elections bigtime...
gosh that's odd...scelesa, accesla, anemsca, acnesa, or whatever her name is, comes on the attack five minutes after my above post...makes no mention of any of it's content, refutes none of it, discusses none of it, rebuts none of it, dosen't make a point, other than call me movie star names and question my gender...
...and then runs and hides...plenty of time for a response...but now, for some reason...those lips aren't chattering...hmmmmmm....

that is a good thing to observe...about how the 'right' formulates smokescreen attacks while creating great worldwide misery for true patriots everywhere, especially here, where other people's kids have to leave their villages for carnage party...while scelcs and stevens types are raking in bucks on somebody's elses true honor.

if they hear something that sounds remotely like it's going to blow their talking points...they attack with gender stuff and name calling...call people 'bomb throwers' and 'terrorists'!!! get it?????
terrorists...
nothing more than a marketing term for these chickenhawk types...
they don't even propose a contention or s response other than throw some shit...
bullyboys who are all blubber.
well i'm going offline now so i'ts safe to answer now scelsa/sten/sccmbukcers inc.
but peeps will see the microcomsm, the few peeps who haven't figgered it out for themselves already...the incredibly tiny minority who are still confused about this in the face of these unwarranted, indefensible, and a cowardly personal attacks...bring it on scelsea...where did you go all of a sudden?
have u a point regarding this thread and these specific posts???, aside from your third rate ann coulter shtick...
no you don't. which makes you what you are...some bristles to wipe the manure off of my riding boots...bring it baby. bring it.

interesting tho, bush is the president...6 years now...u wanna talk clinton for some reason...hmmmmm....
can anyone tell the difference between the clinton and bush administration...
???
i wonder...gee, seems a few things are a bit different, don't it...
american kids die because of greedmonsters, and attack disinformation clones like u scelsea, what a sin...what a sin...

yeah i remember the torture scandal under clinton, the huge gas prices, the war after war, all the thousands of military deaths, and tens of thousands of serious injuries, the hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians killed, the sick sadness of walter reed...the falsified intelligence information, outing of cia officers, the "unitary executive,"...there is a REASON why these pukes keep bringing up a peacetime president who left a huge surplus and one stain on one groupie's dress...there's a reason, can you figure it out....
all that money for ken starr...that was spent by scelsea's guys trying to take out a sitting, actually elected...president...for a BJ!!
we need a special prosector for imeachment again...only this time there's a reason...or several.
it beats talking about their guy, who the world, the entire world, has nothing but contempt for...THEIR guy...their guy...and he's selling to YOU...r u buying it?
he knows i'm not.
