    Default Radicalism

    I read this story this morning:
    AFP: Mali Islamists destroying 'more Timbuktu shrines'

    It is about Mali Islamists destroying the tombs of ancient Muslim saints in Timbuktu, and I'm thinking "what the fuck?" Muslim radicals destroying the tombs of Muslim saints, something doesn't seem right here. It would be like Catholic radicals destroying St. Peter's Basilica, Lutheran radicals destroying the All Saints Church in Wurtenberg, or Jew radicals destroying the Western Wall.

    I mean what the fuck is wrong with these people? This is completely illogical behavior. And then suddenly, it reminds me of something. We have a similar radicalism here in the US. These radicals aren't tearing down old tombs or buildings. But what these radicals have torn down is the ability to compromise. Compromise has been a part of our nation's history since the earliest days of our country. Ever hear of the Great Compromise? You know, the compromise that allowed the creation of the United States Constitution? These American radicals want their way, and are unwilling to compromise. These radicals aren't capable of understanding people have different viewpoints. Some people might benefit from a government program or law, but these American radicals don't, so they believe that this program or law must be eliminated; there is just no other possible solution. These radicals don't care about the ramifications of their actions, they just want to get their way, and they will stop at nothing to achieve it. Who are these American radicals? The radical right.

    These whackos go around calling themselves patriots, claiming to be defenders of the Constitution, and promoters of American ideals. But they don't think much of the greatest American ideal, the one that allowed our country to become the nation that it is today, and that is compromise. These radicals can waive their flag, call themselves patriot, and do whatever they do, but that can not hide the fact that they are as dangerous to America today as the Islamist radicals are to the peaceful religion and people of Islam. These two different groups might have different beliefs, but the sum of their work is the same: destruction.

    It's amazing how short term ones memory can be and how delusional one can be. The art of compramise died when the Dems took over congress with Harry and Nancy at the helm. Hell Harry won't even allow bills to be introduces to the floor if HE doesn't like it. Just throws them in the corner. Or are you looking for the type of compramise the dems used when crafting the HC bill. Yeah changing the locks on confrence rooms so the opposition can't even get in
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Any extremist of any kind, any radicals of any kind, and most zealots of any kind are usually bad news for others! We the American people are being forced by right and left radicals and their puppets to live our lives according to thier ideas.......Most of us are caught in the middle. The radicalized power mad and money driven two party system is a trap! Until we jump free of this controlling system were are screwed.... However, there is no doubt the currently corporate fascist dominated Republican party is the most dangerous at this time. Democrats are currently the lesser of two evils. So unless you honestly vote third party, vote according to the time honored lesser of two evils method this Nov. We cannot let fascism take over any more than it already has .... Time to stop it's evil ! Never again !

    Yet you will vote for the leftist radical in the WH now. Even though he was voted most liberal in the Senate by his own peers.

    No, the "Art of Compromise" in American politics died specifically right when the repubs came to power under Newt- "NO COMPROMISE!!!" was his battle cry and he tried to crush this country's fiscal health by demanding that the repcon extreme budget be enacted intact......The repcons since have made it clear that the majority MUST live by the minority extreme right or they will destroy America......"If we can't have her, then nobody can have her!!!"

    I'm just trying to understand how the extreme right can even think that this country should be run by a few extreme rightys and everyone else should just "shut up 'cause they should never even have an opinion". Case in point, the Roberts dicision- I see it as a plus for the nation, on both sides; It kept the health care system in place, and it put OBama in the hot seat for the election....both sides recieved something.......of course, it also can be looked at as the court once again telling the extreme right that the goofy fairy tales that come from Faux & Rush are just that, fairy tales......Just because you hate doesn't mean your ridiculus viewpoint is right. The guy is an extreme right Justice and read the constitution.....He can't just make stuff up as he goes along to suit you guys on the extreme right.....stop trying to bend the constitution to make it ok for your dictatorship!

    I wonder why they feel the need that they have to do this... Where and why did this start? Is it a war? Do they feel threatened by force conversion or decapitation? Do you feel threatened by losing the law of their land and it being replace by a religious law? All of these are not addressed.

    We all know what compromise is today. It's when Republicans roll over and Dems get what they want. It never works the other way.

    No I'm an independent who will be voting for Gary Johnson who is a former Republican like me. BTW, Nothing stopping you from switching to Independent either. You don't seem very happy as a Republican anymore anyway. So dump them like I did

    so you think that Piglosi and Reid have perfected the art of compromise. Are you fucking insane?
    Of course you think that Obamacare is a plus for both side. The asshat socialist in the WH thinks so to. And you, being a useless tax payers burden, align yourself with that POS muzzie. Why would we expect anything else for a useless user.
    Of course you think its a plus. You are EXACTLY the reason the VAST majority of Americans hate the bill. When I think of Obama care, I think of YOU!, and it makes me sick!
    It is NOT a plus for both sides. If it was, the MOAJORITY of Americans would HATE the bill and it would be the VERY FIRST thing Romney will ask congress to dump.
    It will never be fully implemented, and as such, it will DIE! As it should. Its a BAD bill. Its a BAD TAX!!!!!!!
    Its UNAMERICAN to the extreme.
    Romney may very well win the election soleyb do to the bill, and 100% justifiably. Let it be a lesson to the lefty socialist pricks of this country. There are no free rides or lunches.
    The fixing of the American debt is NOT going to come from the backs of Americans, rich or middle class, but off the FAT of the American Governement. Think about that zombie and CVX. The free ride is about to end

    I'm sure there was plenty of "compromise" going on when the left was in total or near total control.

    Note that, of the Republican administrations, only the Hoover administration and the first year of the Eisenhower administration had full Republican control of the government. Conversely, in the Democratic administrations, full Democratic control was usually the rule, with the exceptions of the early years and the last year of the Truman administration, the last year of the Carter administration and all but the first year of the Clinton administration.

    I like it that some of you quote this buffoon at times. Got to laugh at his posts as they are so ridiculous.

    Like I said before, hopefully the mid terms this past election, were an indication that the American public learned to never ever allow a radical socialist POTUS and a radical socialist congress in power at the same time again. EVER!
    If the dimwits had any brains at all, they would want to avoid it as well. I don't think the working middle class will take another radical socialist lying down again. You can only steal so much from a working man and his family before it gets ugly. Ask Washington, Franklin and Jefferson.

    And here in lies the cause of your warped mind. I could care less what it says on my voter registration card. I will always vote with my head and not some party affiliation. You on the other hand needed to change your identity to make yourself feel better about yourself. typical problem with liberals. Fact is I'm conservative so I will alway's lean right unless someone like an old bluedog Dem enters the picture. I don't believe in over regulation and taxation. I don't believe in unions and overpaid gov salaries, with way overbloated pensions that are not sustainable. I do not believe in welfare that goes beyond the absolute bare necesities to live. Pretty much everything the Left stands for. Johnson does not have a chance in hell unless he raises alot more money to run a good campaign. And that would mean becoming a corperate sellout in your book. So you continue to make yourself feel good about yourself by supporting and voting for someone that has no chance in hell. I will vote for who I think has the best chance of getting elected that will be best for the future of America. And O has proven he is never going to be that man. Seems the left and the lied to elected a modern day politician. One who is great and making speaches and lies to win elections. But really had next to no experience because he never really did his job. He was always campaigning for the next level. Now he can't go any higher and is a misserable failure
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.
