Too long, didn't read, because you are arguing with TOOLS. I had a similar thing on Sarah's facebook page a few weeks ago with some dropout who had even a far more limited understanding of anything than these two. These two at least back up their (spurious) arguments with something resembling facts--but then again, I didn't read them, because there was so much bullshit in each post it was impossible to debunk them all at once. I mean the government "took over" AIG? It bailed their asses out, and they're once again making record profits.And good for you. I'm not a goddamned crybaby either. Now I am going to make a delicious pot of spaghett.
i just wrote a whole bunch of stuff in response to your latest post, but don't know how to actually post it.
i am happy that colby lives in tecumseh and i can talk to him personally. in any event, you are right and he is wrong. if you just read the preamble to the constitution, you'll realize that our country was founded on the government being the instrument by which good is done for the people. we don't have any other institution that can do it. churches? which one? elks club? yeah, right. the government is there for the common defense, yes, but it is also there to ensure domestic tranquility, promote the general welfare and make sure justice is served. colby, read the preamble. colby, we need to meet for lunch or drinks or something and discuss all this. and quit hatin' us lefties. we love everybody!!!!
