You say Christian Taliban don't exist

I show you proof that they do

You call it stereotyping

That wasn't proof, not by a long shot.  That N.C. case was about two representatives who introduced a bill in response to an ACLU lawsuit that was trying to ban a prayer before the Rowan Co. commissioners meeting.  Three other reps. signed on as co-sponsors for a total of five...out of 120 members of the General Assembly.

Stereotyping is to believe unfairly that all people or things with a particular characteristic are the same.  That's what you do all the time.  You take five men, 4% of the state representatives, and not only paint the other 96% with the same bigoted brush, you do it to all Christians.

Admitting you're a bigot would be the first step towards curing that particular character flaw you have.  We'll work on your pathological lying at a later date.

    I point out that Bernie is a centrist, all you do is laugh

    https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/manifesto2015/ConservativeManifesto2015.pdf 

    The UK Conservative Party Platform is nearly identical to what Bernie has been talking about. 

    I call Bernie a centrist because America is more right wing than grown up countries like the UK but he's NOT left wing in any way shape or form. 

    Never called for banning of all guns, just have sensible regulations like Australia.

    I laugh because the notion that Sanders is anything but a Communist is laughable.

    "Sensible regulations like Australia"?  You can't compare our Constitutional right to bear arms with Australia because they never had the same right.

    "Grown up countries"? Get back to me on that when YOU grow up.

      27 pages and 3 months to go before the election.  Any money says we'll hit 100 pages by then.  I caught a story today about that uranium scientist executed by Iran.  Could be a result of Hillary's unsecured emails.  Its that's true...She will go to prison.

        Dang, Mike, that was impressive.

        I have my moments, rcb.  To be honest, it was low-hanging fruit.

            After reading your entire post, I am left speechless but do want to thank you for all your research on debunking these clueless lefties. Very well laid out! Cheers

            You're most certainly welcome. I simply couldn't let the lies continue.

              Didn't we win a war against that "grown up" country? Didn't we save the "grown up" country and many others during WW 2?

                Mike- All I can say is WOW! You put an awful lot of time and effort into your response and I want to praise you for that! I have neither the time or patience to construct a rebuttal to such nonsense that is being displayed by some of these leftist individuals.

                Props to you Mike!

                Thanks, Drenick.   Truth always defeats the forces of evil.

                  Hey Artist...I read your recent posts and read you're going to vote for Jill Stein.  Did you know her stance on the military?  She wants to cut the military budget by 30%.  If that were to happen, its almost a guarantee, we'll be involved in a major war, maybe nuclear, in the very near future.  There's only one reason we weren't attacked by now, its because we were strong.  So what's more important?  Being green or being dead?

                    Two wars, actually.

                    I'd agree with the second question up to a point.  We can't forget the contributions of glorious Mother Russia, what with her sacrificing millions as cannon fodder for the German army, marching them unarmed into the teeth of the Nazi guns, using men to clear mine fields by forcing them at bayonet to lead the charge.  Of course, that's the Socialist side of the spectrum that has such respect for human life.

                       I would bet against that being the case.  I believe Ms. Artist is a Trump supporter.  I think Derp has come out for the Green Party, maybe it was in a reply to him where you saw that.

                        Thank you. He is confusing me with Derp? Omg. Lol Being rather green in my lifestyle and being a vegetarian,  does not equate with Jill Stein. I don't discourage voting for Stein however if you are on the fence since those votes tend to come from Hillary's side.

                         

                        And Greenbay, I live and work in the city that will likely get nuked first. I have had more dreams on this than you will ever know. We are almost out of time.

                          No, KingofDerp, facts aren't "borderline insanity" but someone would have to be crazy to believe the ones you've spewed forth.

                          You challenged:  Then do it, show us something this (that is?)  contradictory or factually incorrect.

                          I went through your posts and picked out your "greatest hits" to focus upon.  "They didn't have a good beat, Dick, and were hard to dance to!"  Sorry, showing my age.  I think they're in reverse order for the most part, most recent to earliest, although there are a few I combined under the same topic. 

                          Who cares? They're all a crock, anyway.

                          I want to preface my rebuttal with how I want to point out I have tried to avoid using the term "Liberal", especially as a pejorative and have instead opted for "Progressive".  Classical liberalism makes up a large part of my own personal political beliefs.

                          The next several come from the same vomitus in a single post.

                          Conservatives and Republicans oppose the minimum wage

                          No, they don't.  A Pew research poll from a few years back said half of Republicans support a raise in min. wage.  I've since seen other more recent polls that show a majority of Republicans favor an increase,  but not to the levels the Democrats propose.

                          As has been explained to you in here, min. wage was always intended to be a starting wage for people entering the work force, not a perpetual one. I've read that, in McDonalds case, it wouldn't raise the price of a burger by much. That's probably true in some other areas, too, but I'd also bet it will reduce the numbers of those entry level employees hired. McD's is already working on automation and I bet other businesses will follow suit because labor costs are usually 70% of any business's overhead. Sure, raise it if you must, but it HAS to be gradual or the wage hike will have some adverse repercussions, a ripple effect which would turn into a tidal wave and wreak havoc with our economy. 

                          That's one of the most fundamental differences between Progressives and Conservatives; a Conservative says "Wait a minute, let's not be too hasty, let's think about it, discuss it before doing anything." Progressives are like spoiled children, wanting something not just NOW, but yesterday and they hold their breath and stomp their widdle feet until the adults (Conservatives) give in.

                          support homophobia

                          Sure, you have some religious types who were anti-gay marriage, dislike the gay "lifestyle", but at least they're steadfast in their opposition while many Democrats only switched when they saw which way the political wind was blowing. Me? I'm a conservative small L libertarian and I had no objection other than semantics. Marriage has always been defined as a religious union between a man and a woman. (and "gay" meant happy) On the civil rights side, I saw nothing wrong with civil unions, but my libertarian bent makes me chafe that govt. has ANYTHING to do with marriage to begin with.

                          support women dying from illegal abortions etc etc, it's pretty clear which side of the spectrum has concern for human life

                          Ah, the "coat hanger" argument. Doesn't fly, Mommie Dearest. I want to say "most", but instead will say "many" conservatives would allow for abortion in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother. "Back alley abortions" account for only 200 at most each year, as opposed to the nearly million legal abortions. It's estimated that there have been well over 50 million abortions since Roe v. Wade. That's a staggering number, but what I find sickening is how abortion is celebrated as a woman's right to choose, yet nothing is mentioned about the unborn's right to life, their civil rights being terminated along with the pregnancy. Of course, since the baby is "only a lump of tissue", then they have no rights, right?

                          All that said, it's the law but there's also nothing illegal about people being against the practice. (unless the only opinion that counts is yours and those like-minded, huh?) There is a need for regulation, though, because it is a medical procedure, after all.  Even a transgender person is required to have counseling before surgery.
                          "Up to the point of viability!" is the cry of abortion supporters, a reluctant sop to those who would reasonably restrict abortion to before the last trimester.  Why stop there, why not do "post-birth" abortions? I mean...a baby can't live w/out care from the mother (and/or father) for several years after being born. Good grief, I know teenagers and grown men who couldn't survive on their own for more than a week w/out someone taking care of them.

                          No, let's extend that time to at least a year after birth. That way you Progressives can get rid of the mentally challenged, the crippled, the wrong sex, the ones that are unattractive...just name the defect, and terminate it and the "host" that carries it. A financial burden?  Throw it in the trash. Ruin your figure?  Abort the "lump".  Simply can't be bothered?  Throw the baby out with the bathwater!  We all know that's what you Progressives want, what your leftist heroes of the past did. THAT'S the "side of the spectrum" that has no concern for human life.

                          Not long ago I read an article that called for climate change deniers to be killed. That's the Progressive way, right? How many did Stalin and Mao, other leftists, murder only because they dared to speak out? Do the research on THAT and get back to me about "which spectrum" values human life more.

                          Elect a Leftist, or even a centrist like Sanders and you'd get very different results.

                          Sanders, a centrist? Bwwaaaaa!

                          The most extreme cases of political correctness are in the right, not the left

                          Did I spell "Bwwaaaa!" correctly above? That comes close to the most idiotic thing you've ever said, not to mention the biggest whopper.

                          Davy Crockett existed, the hat did not at the time. Also him and a few others were captured alive and executed.

                          Oops, your beloved Wiki says otherwise: Coonskin cap  I won't post the information, but I want you to read it with your own lyin' eyes.  Needless to say, the cap existed long before The Battle of the Alamo.

                          (I know a little bit about coons because my pop used to hunt them when I was just a little guy.  He must have started feeling guilty about it because later when I was a young man, he'd bring home abandoned raccoon kits and we'd raise them.  One used to love to ride on his shoulder while he drove around checking his leases.  Here's a short lesson in coon anatomy, just to lighten up this post a bit)

                          I see that you're choosing to believe the Billy Bob Thornton movie version instead of The Duke's. Fine by me, but it serves as proof you prefer to get your history from Hollywood movies instead of books.  Once again, from Wiki: Davy Crockett "All that is certain (my emphasis) about the fate of David Crockett is that he died fighting at the Alamo on the morning of March 6, 1836, at age 49."

                          Being a Texan and lover of history, I already knew that the Billy Bob movie version ending came from a Mexican officer's journal, a man named la Peña. Due to the fact that no other manuscript has ever been uncovered corroborating la Peña's account, it's not been accepted as anything close to being factual and most historical scholars think it a hoax. If you'll read the Wiki article, you'll see that Alamo survivors of the battle stated something altogether differently in regards to how Crockett died.

                          I bet you get your "facts" about climate change from An Inconvenient Truth, your "facts" about the Kennedy assassination from Oliver Stone's JFK and your "facts" about the Vietnam War from Apocalypse Now. Am I right or am I right?  Hooray for Hollywood, passing lies off as truth, glorifying the worst of our culture (and contributing to its decline), ridiculing any other opinions but their own...warping idiot's minds for a century!

                          Oh please, pretty please bring up Gasland and how hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is bad. I'll blow you out of the not-burning water with FACTS, Jack.   On second thought, never mind;  I'm sure you'll attempt to use "facts" that are anything but.  I've spent more than enough time on exposing you as it is. 

                          Anyway...you damyankees need to tend to your own history books, leave ours alone. Sure, we Texans like our historical heroic myths and sometimes our text books contain the wrong information, but sweep around your own door first.

                          Live off welfare like 90% of Southern Republicans

                          and this one:

                          70% of the 47% are elderly and Republicans in the conferacy.[sic] You old Southern Reps are the laziest and most ignorant leeches in the world.

                          I've done a LOT of reading about the meme that "Blue states support Red states". First of all, the 90% figure needs to be flushed down the toilet, just like many other of your "facts". The "Blue vs. Red" division needs to be stabbed in the heart, because it's not only more complicated than that, it's also a lie.

                          If you ever take the time to look at red/blue spots by voting demographics, you'll see that the U.S. is more "purple" than simply red or blue. Makes sense if you look at how the last several presidential elections went, but then again, if you'll look closer, you'll see that many states that voted for the Democrat presidential candidate have a majority of Republicans in their state houses as well as represented in Congress and vice versa in others. Others, not all.

                          So, saying a state is either red or blue depends upon how they voted in the last Presidential election is a case of mislabeling. Except for blue states such as NY and Mass., several others in the northeast and on the west coast, some so-called red states like Florida have flipped back and forth.

                          Then too, just like any other analysis of statistics, one must "drill down" and consider other numbers and variables. For instance, Texas is a "red state", right? Well, look at some of the largest population density regions, such as the Valley and Houston, etc. They're solidly "Blue" and other large Texas cities are "light Blue". Large urban centers vote Democrat, that's a fact. Consider New Orleans in Louisiana, Atlanta in Georgia, other huge cities in red states. They vote Democrat.  Again, that's a fact, look it up. 

                          A Pew study and poll showed Democrats were responsible for 60+% of the benefits taken.  I've seen other articles claim the figure is closer to 80% in some categories.   Consider the huge numbers of Democrats in those urban centers, it's obvious that it's not Southern Republicans taking the welfare, it's that they are supporting the Democrat voters - the "leeches" - in their states. 

                          I'm sure you'll try to come back with social security figures or how much each state gets in Federal dollars vs. what they pay back, etc., but that argument is often made by misleading statistics or over-simplifying them or not accounting that - for example - that many "red" states have more military bases (pork projects from past Democratic Representatives) and that "red" states like Florida and Arizona have a larger than average elderly population using their PAID FOR benefits like SSI and Medicare.   Add in Federal land in "red" states that have a big influx of federal dollars (many Western states)  and even that equation changes which would prove you even more wrong. 

                          The US has no gun control laws

                          You mean I can go buy a machine gun? Wow, I always thought I had to have an expensive Federal license, be investigated, pay a yearly fee, be subject to visits by the ATF to make sure I still have possession of the weapon and all that!

                          If that's the case, I want a Thompson (Tommy gun) , you 'n me can be just like Bonny and Clyde (I'll be Clyde, of course).  No, scratch that, I want a 50-caliber to go hunting with, we got some big jackrabbits here in Texas.  No, no, I want one of those Warthog 30mm Gatling guns to mount on top of my house so I can shoot the speeders as they whiz by.

                          Biggest lie you've told and that's saying' sumpthin'. Of COURSE we have gun control laws. Did you type that with a straight face or was it intended to be a lie, Mr. Goebbels?

                          Yeah, let's ban guns, bans worked so well during Prohibition and with our current drug laws. 

                          I hope you're the one who comes to take my few firearms away. Just be warned that I'll give you the ammunition first, very quickly...a little faster than the speed of sound, in fact. 

                          If you want to take away my Constitutional right to keep and bear arms, then you're a traitor and need to have your citizenship terminated...with "extreme prejudice".

                          Bernie is a moderate centrist who flip flops between the center-left and center-right.

                          No, he's not a "moderate centrist". If he were, he'd be a middle-of-the-road Republican, a RINO or at best, a conservative Democrat (a rare bird, the numbers of which would rival those of the passenger pigeon.) He says he's a Democratic Socialist, just using a word like "Democratic"  trying to disguise his true affiliation - Communist.  He ran as an Independent to further disguise his true ideology.  He aligned himself with the Democrats only for relevancy...but that the Democrats allowed him to run on their ticket speaks volumes about THEIR true ideology.

                          (and let's get something else straight;  while "Progressive", "Socialist", "Communist" and "Marxist" DO all have different definitions, their desired end results are all exactly the same - a totalitarian regime.)

                          Granted, he struck a chord with the younger generation, but his supporters were mostly a thankfully small percentage of the newest voting generation, the narcissistic, self-absorbed whiners. Like you.

                          Taxes are absurdly low, we need real increases

                          No, they're not and no we don't. We need to cut spending. Anyone who has ever budgeted for a household or business could attest to that. It's only the leeches and "gimme" crowd that think that. Like you think.

                          The over 35 crowd have had everything handed to them on a silver platter

                          Yeah, those darn Boomers! I'm a Boomer, but I never had a silver platter or anything handed to me on one.  I DO know a few folks who fit that description, but that's true of any generation.

                          Add "Ageist" to your growing list of bigoted beliefs.

                          Seriously, sounds like your generation actually believed Harry Potter and that all the problems can be solved by a simple flick of the wand. Thank goodness it's not, because you pouting pusillanimous punks would be screaming "Avada Kedavra" at everyone with white hair or wrinkles. How 'bout instead of whining on message boards, you go actually DO something to change the world? Oh, I forget, that would require work and participation and actual interaction with others on a personal and REAL level, not moaning about it online or having to look up from your cell phones. Like you do.

                          There's a reason no one lives in no tax places like Wyoming and South Dakota.

                          From Wiki: Wyoming Population: 2015 (est) 586,107  I see, a half-million+ people is "no one". You think so few people live there because of no corporate tax or personal income tax and NOT because of the cold-as-hell winters? I'd say the fact that the U.S. govt. owns nearly half of Wyoming has something to do with it as well.

                          From Wiki: South Dakota Population 2015 (est) 858,469 Where exactly is the cut off that defines "no one"? According to you, it's not rural flight but because they're mostly Republican voting states and not nearly Socialist enough. Have I interpreted your insinuation correctly? Of course, both of those states are largely agricultural based without a lot of heavy industry, so they're not going to have a huge GDP OR population.

                          California has a surplus and a stable budget as a result of raising taxes on the rich.

                          Sorry, but this is from Breitbart, which I know you despise as a source, but they also post links to their information cited...just like Wikipedia, which you claim to be a reputable cite. (not saying it is or isn't, just that if you want us to accept Wiki, then you need to accept Breitbart or admit that you're the hypocrite most of the rest of us already realize.)

                          California Budget in Deficit as Silicon Valley Falters
                          From the site: "The bipartisan Legislative Analysts’ Office has announced that California’s 2015-16 personal income tax collection has fallen from a huge surplus to a $147 million deficit. The cause appears to be plummeting Silicon Valley capital gains and weakening tech employment."

                          Also, note the date of the article - Feb. 5th of this yr. YOUR assertion of "facts" was made on July 8th. So, what's your excuse? You had your head buried in the sand for five months, or didn't want to bring it up because it wouldn't fit your narrative? Personally, I think it's because you're a habitual liar. Using your reasoning on other matters, I'd have to say ALL Socialists are liars. To top that off, you went on with this:

                          Meanwhile states like Kansas and Louisiana which cut taxes on the rich dramatically are economic wasteland

                          Kansas "The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that the total GDP in 2008 was $122.7 billion, making it the United States's 32nd highest state by GDP." Hmmm. While it ranks in the bottom half of states in GDP, it's also a largely agricultural state and has also suffered from rural flight. It's also 34th in population, so being 32nd in GDP isn't all that bad with that considered.

                          The state is ranked #8 in both oil and gas production, but prices are down and that's certainly not helping the economics of that state. My own royalties have been horrible lately. Yep, a Texan who owns (part of) several gas wells...in Oklahoma, bless that brilliantly red state, so glad it's such a great neighbor! I wish OU wouldn't kick UT's butt so often in football, but I still love the state.

                          Louisiana 25th in population, 24th in GDP. Smack dab in the middle of all the states isn't exactly what I'd call an "economic wasteland".

                          Only a stupid person responds with ad hominum [sic] attacks rather then accept facts.

                          This one made me laugh...well "snicker", actually. You've done a fair amount of mud-slinging, against Republicans, Conservatives (and the two aren't mutually inclusive, you should know), Christians, southern states, etc. Pot, meet kettle.  You could call it "blow back" for years of abuse of Conservatives.  We now realize insults hurt you thin-skinned progressives.  You can dish it out, but you can't take it. 

                          Everyone pays for a service and that service provides it free of charge to everyone.

                          THIS one makes me shake my head and think "Did he really just say that?" If someone has to pay for a service, then how is it free? Honestly, do you really THINK before you type this stuff out? This is what I'd expect to find on a used wad of toilet paper, not coming from the brain of an "educated" "intellectual", self-admitted Socialist. Maybe what's on that TP is what you have for brains?

                          The minimum wage of a server is $2.15

                          Another "fact" that happens to be wrong: Tipped wage in the United States "The American federal government requires a wage of at least $2.13 per hour be paid to employees that receive at least $30 per month in tips. If wages and tips do not equal the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour during any pay period, the employer is required to increase cash wages to compensate. As of May 2012, the average hourly wage – including tips – for a restaurant employee in the United States that received tip income was $11.82."

                          Not off by much, only a couple of pennies, but that two cents represents the value of the "facts" you claim. I noticed you didn't bring up the compensation that's mandated by law.

                          Besides all that, it's always someone of YOUR generation who is a server or preparer who thinks it's fine to spit in someone's food, be it a poor tipper or someone of a different race or a cop or a soldier. Yep, you guys need to be rewarded for that, for sure....with a whack of a bat across the mouth, let you spit out a few teeth instead of phlegm on someone's burger.   Too violent?  OK, then...let's go around to any pool hall and empty the spittoons around all the domino tables, fill up a five gallon bucket and shove the spitter's head in it.  Do it a few times until they got the message that when you do something nasty as spitting in someone's food, then something nasty happens to the offender.

                          You don't want me to get started on what I'd do to taggers and graffitti "artists".

                          The Christian Taliban wants only the wealthy elite to go to college

                          What nonsense! "Christian Taliban" is an oxymoron. It's a pseudo hate phrase created by anti-Christian bigoted leftists and so-called "tolerant liberals". It's akin to saying "a carnivorous vegetarian" and is a sophomoric insult (Ironically, "sophomore" is thought to have derived from the Greek for "wise fool", another oxymoron, although in your case it's quite apt)

                          To state this clearer: There's no such thing. This. Doesn't. Exist.

                          (Disclaimer: Those aren't my words;  I saw them when I Googled the term, but liked them so much I decided to include them)

                          He's not the one who believes that a bearded sky fairy controls our lives and that fatal cancer in children is a sign that this sky fairy is good and we need to worship said monster.

                          While I certainly wouldn't argue against that some Christians are full of hate, IMHO they're really not Christians, not by deed or definition. Lumping them all together, however, is stereotyping and that in itself is a form of bigotry. While anecdotes and personal observations can't qualify as "facts", why is it the most hateful and unhinged people that I see posting in forums and message boards are atheists?

                          Honestly, why does a monument with the Ten Commandments on the courthouse lawn send you atheists into apoplectic fits?  Like it or not, they were a basis for American law and should be taken into historical significance if for no other reason.

                          Me? I'm an "optimistic agnostic", so I don't really have a dog in the fight except that some of my dearest friends are Christians and I won't stand for them to be slandered. They're all flawed humans, just like the rest of us (you included...especially you), but it is their QUEST for perfection, their attempt to walk in Jesus' footsteps that makes them Christians.  None I've ever known revel in others misfortunes and if they did, they wouldn't be Christians OR my friends.

                          While they might turn the other cheek if you insulted them, if I was there when you said it I'd snatch you up by your hair and try my best to break your nose. (and I'm fairly certain I could do it even though I bet I have four decades on you in age.) That wouldn't be warm rain falling on your face as you lay there stunned afterwards, either. Being pretty much of a heathen, I won't have to ask forgiveness from either you OR the "bearded sky fairy". I'll just need bail money, that's all. (that is, if you press charges, pretty much what wussies do after they get their butts kicked)

                          82% of the 47% are either old or are poor people in the red southern states that Trump won by massive margins, facts can't be disputed

                          There's not even any need to attempt to rebut this because, like most of your "facts", you pulled this out of your anal orifice. I not only disputed your "facts" up above, I destroyed them.

                          MSNBC is for center-right moderate conservatives like Obama or Hillary.

                          I'm pretty sure Socialists and sane people don't use the same dictionary and I'm not sure we even live on the same planet.  Good grief. Apparently according to you anyone who is a fraction of an inch to the right of Mao is "center-right".

                          The Obama economy is far better than either Bush economy or the Reagan economy this time in their terms

                          Uh, not exactly true- the charts I saw showed "Obama's economy" to be below Reagan's and only slightly better than Bush's at the same point in time.  Other than public confidence in the Administration, the Federal Reserve has much more impact.   Some presidential policies can take years before seeing an effect and good or bad, the person in the Oval Office down the road gets credit...or the blame.

                          Presidents, just like football coaches, can make a blunder and lose the game, or call a great play and win. Like a coach's ball team, though, there are more players involved in the game, ditto for those in the game of politics. Just like a coach, a President often gets the blame for things out of his control and often takes the credit for things others did.

                          You might want to take a look at the majorities in the House of Representatives during both good and bad economic times. They are, after all, the branch with the authority to initiate tax increases or spending proposals. It might surprise you (IOW, not fit your narrative) and at the very least it would verify there's more than enough blame to go around.

                          The top tax rate in the 1950's was 90%. If only we could have real politicians advocating reasonable rates like that

                          Fewer millionaires and billionaires back then, too. I hope a LOT of Democrat politicians (and a goodly number of Republicans) take up that cause. It would be lovely to watch their political careers come to a screeching halt. They'd self-term limit.

                          ...a polygraph .... is so ineffective and prone to error that it isn't admissible in court.

                          Polygraph tests are admissible in certain states and in federal court at the discretion of the trial judge. States like California, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and Florida allow the tests if everyone stipulates to their use and agrees to admit the results into evidence.

                          Michigan voters elected and re-elected a dictator that intentionally poisoned an entire city.

                          Definition of a dictator: a ruler who wields absolute authority.  If Snyder was a dictator, then why did he even need to run for office?  Another one of your totally absurd statements.

                          From Wiki: Flint water crisis "Governor Snyder issued an apology to citizens and promised to fix the problem, and then sent $28 million to Flint for supplies, medical care and infrastructure upgrades, and later budgeted an additional $30 million to Flint that will give water bill credits of 65% for residents and 20% for businesses. Another $165 million for lead pipe replacements and water bill reimbursements was approved by Governor Snyder on June 29, 2016."

                          I'd like to know how he planned to poison only those voters who voted against him and not the ones who did.  I guess if he was a dictator like your idol Stalin, killing millions in order to weed out the few who opposed him would be the thing to do.

                          Honestly, your hyperbole is ludicrous.  I've told you a hundred million billion times to not exaggerate!

                          This being the south, they will most likely only ask the welfare office about black winners while they will give white winners the money no questions asked.

                          "Most likely". I see what you did there, added an "out" in opinion form. There's no rebuttal to that, but neither is there any truth. It's just a hateful, bigoted thing to say...but why am I not surprised since it comes from you? All the hate you aim towards others is merely projection on your part. It's easy to see you're a self-loathing, white-guilt infested bigoted liar...and a Commie wannabe, to boot.  You think that if America is transformed into your Socialist dream world, YOU'LL be one of the privileged few, ruling the plebes and instead of having a dacha on the Black Sea like the Soviet elite, yours will be in the Catskills. 

                          So, I'd say "Shame on you!" for lying, but I hate that phrase, it's something the Democrats love to fling at Republicans. You really need to slink on out of here, have Todd delete your account because I HAVE just shamed you in front of God (or that "bearded sky fairy", whichever you prefer) and everyone. I've exposed you for the liar you are.  We'll see now if you apologize for your lies or continue on with them.

                          There's one more Progressive lie that needs to be addressed:  It's not that Conservatives dislike higher education, nothing could be farther from the truth, but rather that Progressives have disdain for blue collar workers, the ones who actually produce goods and build things by the sweat of their brows. Well, those workers who are Conservative, anyway.
                          I'm sorry that you have so much student loan debt, but you could have paid ME to teach you, giving me just 40 grand out of the 80 you owe and got twice the education.  Don't believe me?  Look how I schooled you with this post!

                          Then again, Judge Smails would have given you some FREE advice:

                          .

                          https://youtu.be/c9kI_rAFuKA?t=114

                          Southern Republicans are the biggest leeches in the world. 

                          You support a Nationalist fascist (Nationalist Fascism isn't nazism, two very different things)  and you have the nerve to call left wing ideologies tolitarian?  Communism explicitly advocates for a utopic fairy land that has no government at all, and you are so ignorant that you think that's tolitarian. Marxism advocates for workers to control the factories, the little opposite of a tolitarian overload (Boss) who controls everything. You try to act like you have the slightest idea about these concepts, but you don't. Marxism and Communism are fairy tales, just like pure capitalism. Youreally should change your usernsame to Somali pirate, because that;'s what you want America to look like.

                            I laugh because the notion that Sanders is anything but a Communist is laughable.

                            "Sensible regulations like Australia"?  You can't compare our Constitutional right to bear arms with Australia because they never had the same right.

                            "Grown up countries"? Get back to me on that when YOU grow up.

                            When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

                            Go over to Scandinavia or Britain or even Canada and Bernie would be a leading member of the right wing opposition. To call him anything but a centrist is an insult to those of us who are actually on the left side of the spectrum.

                              Hey Artist...I read your recent posts and read you're going to vote for Jill Stein.  Did you know her stance on the military?  She wants to cut the military budget by 30%.  If that were to happen, its almost a guarantee, we'll be involved in a major war, maybe nuclear, in the very near future.  There's only one reason we weren't attacked by now, its because we were strong.  So what's more important?  Being green or being dead?

                              The US spends more on the military than the next 23 countries COMBINED. 30% cut sounds very good. US Defense spending was pretty high on 9/11, didn't really help with preventing an attack. After Sandy and the full on mental illness shown by the Republicans on the Sandy bill and the UN treaty  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/05/us/despite-doles-wish-gop-rejects-disabilities-treaty.html?_r=0 

                              I will NEVER vote for a conservative irregardless of which color and letter is next to their name.
