I didn't take offense at all in that statement. It is directed at the intractable numbskulls I refered to previously, not left wing people like me.

And what needs to be understood, it is not directed at the right wing in general.

Presidents are not elected, they are selected! FDR

No hater here, but I must say most of our president's are just sock puppets. The ones that will not tow the line get shot.

A significant majority of Barack Obama's campaign funding came from Business Roundtable members... Fox News is owned by Roundtable member Rupert Murdoch, and Fox relies heavily on advertising money from Roundtable members. Rupurt Murdoch even supported Obama over John McCain... So here you have an excellent divide-and-conquer psychological operation. Fox News declares Obama the enemy, and Obama declares Fox the enemy, yet the Economic Elite remain in the shadows, behind the scenes, untouched and continuing their plunder. David Degraw AmpedStatus, 2010, p52

This has been happening every since we have built cities…there are cycles, kinda reminds me of farming, taxes and war farming.

And with that , I think it's time to give this topic a rest.
