Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Your driveway doesn't need a name, it's simply Obama's colon.

Everything he has touched has turned to sh*t. Everything, without exception.

By the way, is it logic and common sense to have to wait ten months for a freakin' MRI?

If those other countries jumped of a cliff, would you want to as well? Didn't your Mother teach you anything? Well if she did, you unlearned it, and are now big fat, super dope.

Got any more opinion quotes from lefty loon fools? If so, keep 'em.

every man is a German, separated from his fellow men. Every man is a Berliner, forced to look upon a scar. . . . As long as this gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind. . . .

General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

(Ronald Reagan, address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987)

...I'd like to say to them."

"With three weeks to go before it was delivered, the speech was circulated to the State Department and the National Security Council. Both attempted to squelch it. The assistant secretary of state for Eastern European affairs challenged the speech by telephone. A senior member of the National Security Council staff protested the speech in memoranda. The ranking American diplomat in Berlin objected to the speech by cable. The draft was naïve. It would raise false hopes. It was clumsy. It was needlessly provocative. State and the NSC submitted their own alternate drafts." (The previous from archives(dot)gov. Peter Robinson)

"Behind me stands a wall that encircles the free sectors of this city, part of a vast system of barriers that divides the entire continent of Europe. . . . Standing before the Brandenburg Gate,

He was full of ideas about what the President shouldn't say. The most left-leaning of all West Germans, the diplomat informed me, West Berliners were intellectually and politically sophisticated. The President would therefore have to watch himself. No chest-thumping. No Soviet-bashing. And no inflammatory statements about the Berlin Wall. West Berliners, the diplomat explained, had long ago gotten used to the structure that encircled them."

"Mr. President," I said, "I learned on the advance trip that your speech will be heard not only in West Berlin but throughout East Germany." Depending on weather conditions, I explained, radios would be able to pick up the speech as far east as Moscow itself. "Is there anything you'd like to say to people on the other side of the Berlin Wall?"

The President cocked his head and thought. "Well," he replied, "there's that passage about tearing down the wall. That wall has to come down. That's what I'

Where did you get that ridiculous quote you used Jaxie? Was it Wickipedia, after being heavily edited/invented by a lefty fool?

The wall was torn down by East and West Berliners. Ya' reckon Gorbachev had anything to do with it? Ya' reckon Reagan had anything to do with Gorby? And who were all those people cheering wildly in direct response to Reagan's "Tear down this wall" comment? Ya' reckon Reagan used a loud microphone? Ya reckon it was also broadcast to East and West Germans via radio? well, it was, dingbat. Ya' reckon it stirred the people on the east side, fueling their long desires to be free? Darn right it did!

"A stocky man with thick glasses, the diplomat projected an anxious, distracted air throughout our conversation, as if the very prospect of a visit from Ronald Reagan made him nervous. The diplomat gave me quite specific instructions. Almost all of it was in the negative.

"Your guys have messed up the recovery."..etc.

Your guys haven't done a g-d thing except waste taxpayer time and money. I'll bet even from your living room you try things. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, but at least you try. The GOP tries nothing, does nothing.

"My point Jaximian, is that The Communist Party USA believes in travelling down the same road as your democrats"

And the British and the Germans and the Japanese and the French and the Canadians and every other country that has national health insurance. It isn't communism, it is logic and common sense, something you and Freeman cannot learn from your living rooms.

Here's history lesson #1, Freeman:

"However, even though the speech is considered one of Reagan’s most memorable and influential speeches, there is much dispute about how much influence and impact his words have had on the German people. Because the media did not focus on the speech during the time due to the unknown impact the tearing down of the wall would bring, most Americans did not know about the speech’s important phrase.[16] In an interview with Reagan himself, he recalls the East German police not allowing people to get near the wall, which prevented the citizens from experiencing the speech at all.[16] In addition, despite his famous lines that challenges Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall, there is little evidence that Reagan’s speech has had any impact on even the decision behind tearing down the wall let alone the people he addresses.[16] "

SO much for you bald-faced lie about it being a turning point in the Cold War. You are brainwashed by Hannity and Fox

I also suggest you read about the Bay of Pigs and which presidency it was developed under. HINT: It wasn't Kennedy's. Get a history book, start reading, learn.

"Tear down this wall" was a pivotal moment in winning the cold war jax. Under Reagan we spent the eastern block countries into oblivion. The resulting "peace dividend" allowed Clinton and Gingrich to pass balanced budgets. "

You've become as crazy as RS. You have completely revised history with this one. I suggest you pick up a history book and start learning. Obviously spouting the Heritage Foundation is a poor basis. I'll bet your driveway is named "Ronald Reagan Lane".

"President Obama is either the most inept chief executive we've ever elected or he is the biggest liar we've ever elected. "

Sorry you are worse off than you were in 2008. Many of us are much better off and appreciated Obama pulling the Bush car out of the ditch.

My point Jaximian, is that The Communist Party USA believes in travelling down the same road as your democrats. Do you not have a problem with that?

Again, how far is too far? How much Government control is too much? Is it a line that your party will ever decide to draw somewhere? I mean, "the Barbarians are at the gates". It ain't the Avon nor the Tupperware lady at the door.

Are you really OK with your kids and grand kids being led around by the nose? I am not. It bugs me to no end. I vote like lives depend on it, because they most definitely do.

And how about that IPAB panel? You're moving rapidly into the "non-useful phase of your life aren't you?

We can then extend that program to fast food consumption, those who don't clean their homes as well as "we" determine they should.

All owners of motor vehicles must, as a result of a new expansion, pay a pollution tax.

How far are we going to go? Who decides? You citizens, apparently, don't think the constitution is very effective any more so lets explore a U.S. that has rid itself of that "obsolete" document. Floor is open.

Here's another thought, let's legislatively create a registration system like the medical marijuana law that would regulate and record who buys tobacco and alcohol. Let's then impose an abuse tax on those registrants to offset the medical expenses "we" incur as a result of their use.

How about this, we abolish the tax code and sell bonds to fund public works, the military and social safety nets.

I'm not so sure the Pope had much to do with the M1 tank moving into the Fulda Gap in 1983, but you keep on banging that drum.

Not sure the Pope had much to do with the Patriot missiles that the 2/2 ADA deployed in the same time period, but you keep banging that drum.

Not sure how much the Pope had to do with the SDI program, the expansion of our nuclear sub fleet, our nuclear surface fleet, our mechanized infantry divisions,, etc. but you keep on bangin' that drum.

What a putz.

In its 1970 opinion in Walz vs. Tax Commission of the City of New York, the high court stated that a tax exemption for churches "creates only a minimal and remote involvement between church and state and far less than taxation of churches. [An exemption] restricts the fiscal relationship between church and state, and tends to complement and reinforce the desired separation insulating each from the other." The Supreme Court also said that "the power to tax involves the power to destroy." Taxing churches breaks down the healthy separation of church and state and leads to the destruction of the free exercise of religion.
