I stopped reading as soon as soon as I saw the word "socialist".

If you truly think Obama is a socialist, any arguments you have relating to his policies are instantly invalid, and you need to go pick up a book, or an internet, and read about what socialism actually is.

clyph: sewnandsilent: Slamming Atlas Shrugged is pointless

Slamming Atlas Shrugged (Or, by extension, Objectism, and Ayn Rand) is never pointless and never gets old. It's a crappy novel built around a naively idealistic philosophy that appeals to smug, self-righteous and self-entitled adolescents who are completely lacking in empathy, altruism, social responsibility, and common sense. (In other words, Republicans)

I'll just leave this here...

I read Atlas Shrugged when I got out of the army, and I fell in love with it. I thought it was the best book I've ever read, and I spent many hours on the net arguing for the Randian position. I even bought some of her non-fiction books and read through those.

At the same time, I started going to college (yay GI Bill; thank you, tax payers!). The more educated I became, the more of Ayn Rand's philosophy faded away. By the time I had my A.S., I realized what an idiot I had been.

/Almost done with my M.S. now.

"George doesn't go along with the worship of the father and he is politically incorrect on a lot of topics," says D'Souza. "And he's particularly interesting because he lives in rubble on a few dollars a day while his powerful, multimillionaire brother doesn't lift a finger to help him."

You're shiatting me with this, right? I didn't realize Republicans had changed their position on free handouts to the poor. It doesn't surprise me, though. If Obama was financially supporting the guy, the article would just read the opposite.

Hey racist moronic stupid assed right wingers:
I don't think you're thinking your clever plot all the way through. Because you know that this mother farking country was FOUNDED by people with anti-colonial beliefs, right?

If you're such a fan of colonialism, then get the fark out of this country you chucklefarks.

My niece is 28. She just found out about yet another half-sibling. Her dad (who never raised her or paid a penny in child support) never wrapped it up. She has half-siblings in four different states. She has met one of them. I wouldn't hold her responsible for any of them.

I wonder if Obama even knew about this little brother? I don't wonder that the little brother is resentful. I just do not blame Obama. Clearly, his biological dad was not the most responsible of men. When you think about it, this makes Obama even more amazing. I think the president should send a nice thank you letter to Mr. D'Souza.

simplicimus: FloydA: xen0blue: I think obama is a great guy as a person, but a horrible, radical president

Could you explain what you mean by the word "radical" here?

I see words bandied around a lot, but I have not seen anything that Obama has done or advocated that fits the definition of the word "radical" that I am familiar with. What do you mean by "radical"?

He means a Nixon Republican.


Obviously, you get my point, but I am sincerely curious about why some people think Obama is a "radical," a "socialist," a "communist," or any of the other things that they've called him. He is slightly to the right of Nixon on economic issues and slightly to the left of Reagan on social issues. His policies would have fit in just fine with the GOP from around 1972 to 2001. So I would really like to hear one of our resident "independents" tell me which particular policies make them think that Obama is a "radical."

What is it, precisely, about Obama's policies that makes him seem "radical" to the Republicans? They tell me that their opposition is all about his policies, but they seem hesitant to offer any specifics.

Can any of our resident "right leaning independents" help me out here?

Any thinking American should be "anti-colonial." Especially a gotdamn Indian! Can he be any more self-loathing?

Common theme. Malkin thinks the internment of the Japanese during WWII was just splendid.

Yeah, by other people who are considered "conservative intellectual heavyweights," so you know what that's worth.

sammyk: Wait a minute! I'm an engineer and I take exception to that.......ohh, yeah, your right. I should never be given a position of power and influence. Truth is we are all rotten bastards and miscreants.


The problem with giving an engineer authority is that they have a tendency to assume other people will act like engineers instead of complete morons.

Great Republicans lets see in the race how many racists and crazy come out. They are going to spend their millions, if you don't spend denouncing them, then we are going to come out and say you support their positions.

You can't be begging for their money in one step and then saying you are against what they do with it the next.

Bloody William: I'm pretty sure nothing "anti-colonial" has really come from the White House.


Well, the White House wasn't too fond of being burned to the ground by the British in that whole War of 1812. As D'Souza would admit if he's being intellectually honest, you could hardly blame anyone in the U.S. for being staunchly anti-colonial. After all we did revolt against the GODDAMN BRITISH EMPIRE.. The problem is that we're not anti-colonial at all. If we had been, we might not have ended up supporting French colonialism in Vietnam.

Ohhhh....That douchebag.

Dinesh D'Souza went to a gay/straight alliance meeting in college in the 80s, took down names, and published a "sodomite" list.

Why? Because he's an asshole.
