What did you think of the American Right's Tea Party protests?

I don't think I understand them. Have these people been stripped of their rights?

I know you have been stripped of YOUR rights on Castaways. You brought some real excitement into their discussions. I do wonder, though. I remember one of their CR intimate friends boasted a few time of being in possession of a small arsenal of weapons. No one minded one little bit. No one even saw fit to talk about it. Apparently, an armed-to-the-teeth Nutsy Leftist is nothing to worry about, as compared with TALK of acquiring arms by let's face it) an equally Nutsy Rightist. Perhaps they were not worried because they thought they were safe from the first one, he only had problems with Jews.

Joking aside, NWO, I suggest you take a long hard look at what you are saying, what you are thinking these days. Try a little scepticism. Don't listen to those who want to enflame you. And most importantly, don't frighten old ladies with stupid comments. I remember once reading in a book that frightening old ladies is the first step to a life of crime. ("Frenchman's creek" by Daphne du Maurier, it's about pirates! Why don't you read it? You might enjoy it.)

Don't you want to be a chef? You are a young American man, living in interesting times. These are real advantages, I tell you. Why don't you try for a university degree? Cultivate your mind in the proper manner?

I may be wrong but I think the Tea Parties were organized to protest out of control government spending. I know lefties say "why didn't these people protest when Bush was spending all that money on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan" but the difference is one of degree. Both of those wars have cost us less than 1 trillion dollars over the course of a number of years whereas Obama has allocated multiple trillions in about 100 days.

frightening old ladies is the first step to a life of crime--Noga

Im cooking again. Swanky upscale place. Cookie enjoys debasing me too much to let that cat out the bag....I enjoy listening to her racist prejudice smears combined with smug superiority. Quite the spectacle.

I may be a little nutty, but Im not trying to frighten ole ladies. Truth saying however.

I dont know if you know about the new Obama Admin. Dept of Homeland Security's criminalization of Conservativsm recently.

But this was my favorite sign at the Charleston Tea Party I attended.

"I went to bed a bitter clinger, adn woke up an extremist right winger."

Obama's Popularity Doesn't Mean Much Abroad
As ever, countries have interests, not friends.

Looks like they are contemplating turning me in to the Feds.

Pretty scary times we live in. Where the new DHS put out the whammy on Conservatives and pro Constitutionalists are being turned in to the Leftwing government for incorrect thoughts.

We do live in interesting times.

NWO, you may think you "enjoy" it but there is nothing enjoyable about being the target of prejudice, smears, falsehoods and demonization. These are easy enough to expose but you need to know what you are talking about. I find your ideas are often as lurid and preposterous as hers. Cookie makes so many mistakes, that it should have been quite easy to ridicule her, repeatedly, for her ignorance.

If you don't mind, I'd like to recommend that you read and study
"An Outline of Intellectual Rubbish", by Bertrand Russell

http://www.solstice.us/russell/intellectual_rubbish.html

He offers some sound advice on how to recognize your own intellectual prejudices, and how to correct them. The rule of thumb is take everything you read with a few grains of salt and always verify information.

I didnt find that essay particularly illuminating or insightful. It promotes its on mythologies for one.

I really dont need ammo to confront the likes of cookie.

Im interested in refining mine own mind, knowledge, and understandings.

And then understanding how to promote a political agenda.

Education system control and media control are the 2 most important.

When leftwingers talk about education being the key....they dont mean minds that are developed to think independently and with rigor.....say with Islamics or Gangs in American cities, or any such group where they disapprove of the culture or behavior....they are talking about indoctrination.

Anyways, Im moving into better quality discussion venues. I like TNR but have yet to figure out their commenting policy (do you have to have a subscription?)

And Harry's Place.

I find I enjoy the Euston Manifesto crowd.

The Guardian is a sad, sad place, where quality discussion usually cannot take place in the message boards.

For TNR you need a subscription and it costs money.

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

Yeah, thats what I had gathered. Maybe sometime in the future....it seems to keep the comment sections more focused and at a higher level.
