King of Derp keeps regurgitating this phrase: "conservative republican leeches" and I'm not sure why.  Since I proved WAY back in this thread that more Democrats are on welfare than Republicans, I guess Herp Derp thinks people have forgotten and he can keep on lying. 

In 11 different U.S. states today, the number of people on welfare exceeds the number of people with jobs.  This list of states includes some of the biggest states in the country: California, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, New Mexico and Hawaii.

Seven of the 11 states went for President Barack Obama in the 2012 election; Ohio, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, Maine, California and New Mexico.  Mitt Romney was victorious in Kentucky, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi.

So, it seems that Republicans not only support the Democrat voters in so-called "Red" states, they do it in the biggest "Blue" ones too.

      He thinks if you tell a lie enough times it becomes true, or what he's hoping for is for people to believe it.

          He is just reciting what he's learned from the progressive media playbook. There is no cure for stupid.

            By the way, I spent a year studying constitutional law and have 2 bar licenses to show for it. People were stunned prohibition happened but it did.  And restrictions could be placed on second amendment rights to render it essentially void.

            "By the way, I spent a year studying constitutional law and have 2 bar licenses to show for it."

            Then you ought know better than saying the Constitution allows Al Gore or Hillary Clinton to repeal the First Amendment. I see your religious comparison because the Woman's Christian Temperance Union played a huge roll in the passage of the 18th Amendment. Do you think today the American Sunni and Shiites Muslims have the same political clout as the WCTU had almost a century ago?

            "And restrictions could be placed on second amendment rights to render it essentially void."

            Wow, you really do believe all that anti-gun nonsense. I saw first hand what guns (and rockets, mortars, and artillery shells) can inflict on a human body, but still have no problem with reasonable people purchasing and owning legal firearms. What is unreasonable about placing restrictions on known terrorists and people on "no fly" lists?

                http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/03/north-carolina-religion-bill_n_3003401.html

                “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

                http://www.forwardprogressives.com/when-fascism-comes-to-america-it-will-be-cloaked-in-patriotism/

                Sharia law in America will not come preaching burqas and qurans, it will come preaching Jesus and bibles

                You sure have a hatred for Christians;  some weeks back you complained that you didn't like having religion shoved down your throat. 

                As you know, I'm not religious, but I have never felt that religion was ever forced upon me.  If some preacher comes on the tube, I just change the channel.  If the Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons come to the door, I either don't answer the door or open it and politely tell them I'm not interested.  They've always gone away, either way.  "Oh, Holy Night" is one of my favorite Christmas carols. 

                I wonder who actually said that about Fascism; it's most often attributed to Sinclair Lewis, but even the Sinclair Lewis Society can find nothing in his writings.

                I see the term "Fascist" thrown around a lot, but it never seems to be used correctly.  I remember when the hippies and potheads of the 60's and 70's would use it in referring to the cops after getting arrested for illegally protesting or being busted for a dime bag.  It wasn't used correctly then and still isn't with that quote.

                Robert Paxton, the far-left historian and "expert" on Fascism, defines it as this:

                Fascism is a system of political authority and social order intended to reinforce the unity, energy, and purity of communities in which liberal democracy stands accused of producing division and decline.

                He expounded:

                A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.

                It's ironic that Paxton, while defining Fascism, uses Fascist tactics with his labelling.

                Then there's this definition that, while brief, speaks volumes: Fascism - A socialism emancipated from democracy. That shows just who is defining the word. It also should hit close to home with you and your politics. 

                Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote this about Fascism: The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.

                That last part, the "ownership of government", sums up the current definition. (It's also ironic coming from a President who tried his best to grab more power for his office, even going so far as to attempt to sidestep the Constitution.)  I think that would depend upon from which perspective one is viewing that particular phrase. I'm sure you would say that could apply to the Kochs, Christians and patriots. I'd counter that it could apply the same - or even more so - to George Soros, labor unions and Socialists.  If I'm correct, then it would mean your side is winning and that your accusation of Christians and patriotic Americans being fascists is really projection on your part. 

                Like most leftists who use the term, it's a good thing if THEY'RE the ones having ownership of government.

                I'm more inclined to accept George Orwell's explanation of what the word means: "...the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley's broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else ... Except for the relatively small number of Fascist sympathisers, almost any English person would accept ‘bully’ as a synonym for ‘Fascist’. That is about as near to a definition as this much-abused word has come."

                So, basically you're using it in place of "bully"...and in your case and others, it's anyone who won't let you have your way, who counters your insults with facts and reason. You're an immature man-child, still exhibiting the behavior of the "Terrible Twos" well into your 20's. I hope you'll be able to outgrow it someday, but I'm not holding out much hope.

                Until that time, I, and others like me, will fight you every step of the way in your perverted quest to fundamentally change this great nation into something the majority of Americans do not want...nor did the Founding Fathers. We will continue to fight you, not only with words on forums such as these, but at the ballot box...and in the streets if need be.

                  You need to chill on your rhetoric as you're sounding just as pathetic as your progressive friends.

                  Speaking of "pathetic", have you ever added any helpful lottery related information to LP?

                  Seriously, to you really believe people purchase premium memberships so they can read your opinions on how to spend imaginary winnings or how real jackpot winners should do?

                      Sounds like Drenick put you in your place. This news story thread has provided a chance for people to vent on political issues. Todd is a smart cookie.

                      Drenick has just as much right to weigh in on how to spend imaginary winnings just as many others have done and will do. You are not superior to anyone on LP. You sound like such a wimpy, scared, bigoted, temper tantrum throwing child.

                          Lol I take it you aspired to be an attorney...but realized you could not get into any decent college. You seem to want to be a wanna be legal expert but your performance is embarrassing. Yes, my college class on abnormal psych was very valuable. You resent any woman who is better educated than you will ever be. Get a job. Bigot.

                            Sounds like Drenick put you in your place. This news story thread has provided a chance for people to vent on political issues. Todd is a smart cookie.

                            Drenick has just as much right to weigh in on how to spend imaginary winnings just as many others have done and will do. You are not superior to anyone on LP. You sound like such a wimpy, scared, bigoted, temper tantrum throwing child.

                            "Drenick has just as much right to weigh in on how to spend imaginary winnings just as many others have done and will do."

                            Show me where I said Drenick or anybody else has no right to post regardless of their membership.

                            "You are not superior to anyone on LP."

                            Neither are you so what's your point?

                            "You sound like such a wimpy, scared, bigoted, temper tantrum throwing child."

                            With these childish comments, you're probably not old enough to go into a bar.

                            Excuse me for laughing but I never read or heard of a real attorney say they "have 2 bar licenses". But hey, because you said it on the Internet, it has to be true, right?

                              You sure have a hatred for Christians;  some weeks back you complained that you didn't like having religion shoved down your throat. 

                              As you know, I'm not religious, but I have never felt that religion was ever forced upon me.  If some preacher comes on the tube, I just change the channel.  If the Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons come to the door, I either don't answer the door or open it and politely tell them I'm not interested.  They've always gone away, either way.  "Oh, Holy Night" is one of my favorite Christmas carols. 

                              I wonder who actually said that about Fascism; it's most often attributed to Sinclair Lewis, but even the Sinclair Lewis Society can find nothing in his writings.

                              I see the term "Fascist" thrown around a lot, but it never seems to be used correctly.  I remember when the hippies and potheads of the 60's and 70's would use it in referring to the cops after getting arrested for illegally protesting or being busted for a dime bag.  It wasn't used correctly then and still isn't with that quote.

                              Robert Paxton, the far-left historian and "expert" on Fascism, defines it as this:

                              Fascism is a system of political authority and social order intended to reinforce the unity, energy, and purity of communities in which liberal democracy stands accused of producing division and decline.

                              He expounded:

                              A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.

                              It's ironic that Paxton, while defining Fascism, uses Fascist tactics with his labelling.

                              Then there's this definition that, while brief, speaks volumes: Fascism - A socialism emancipated from democracy. That shows just who is defining the word. It also should hit close to home with you and your politics. 

                              Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote this about Fascism: The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.

                              That last part, the "ownership of government", sums up the current definition. (It's also ironic coming from a President who tried his best to grab more power for his office, even going so far as to attempt to sidestep the Constitution.)  I think that would depend upon from which perspective one is viewing that particular phrase. I'm sure you would say that could apply to the Kochs, Christians and patriots. I'd counter that it could apply the same - or even more so - to George Soros, labor unions and Socialists.  If I'm correct, then it would mean your side is winning and that your accusation of Christians and patriotic Americans being fascists is really projection on your part. 

                              Like most leftists who use the term, it's a good thing if THEY'RE the ones having ownership of government.

                              I'm more inclined to accept George Orwell's explanation of what the word means: "...the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley's broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else ... Except for the relatively small number of Fascist sympathisers, almost any English person would accept ‘bully’ as a synonym for ‘Fascist’. That is about as near to a definition as this much-abused word has come."

                              So, basically you're using it in place of "bully"...and in your case and others, it's anyone who won't let you have your way, who counters your insults with facts and reason. You're an immature man-child, still exhibiting the behavior of the "Terrible Twos" well into your 20's. I hope you'll be able to outgrow it someday, but I'm not holding out much hope.

                              Until that time, I, and others like me, will fight you every step of the way in your perverted quest to fundamentally change this great nation into something the majority of Americans do not want...nor did the Founding Fathers. We will continue to fight you, not only with words on forums such as these, but at the ballot box...and in the streets if need be.

                              Good post Mike, Man-child is right.
