another wingnut nobody's ever heard of, oh and an obligatory cute-animal avatar to add to the cognitive dissonance.

good times.
haha Im a wingnut? All Im saying is I'm suprised someone like bruce springsteen actually knows what an extremist is.. Sorry that Im a conservative republican with a set of morals. I don't want the government controlling every aspect of my life, and I dont like when mothers kill their children. Respect my beliefs or don't.

I always laugh when well-off as hell artist talk about deregulation, boosting taxes rates...etc. In fact, the idea of a free market is what most of countries really need. Look at the issue of Fanny Mae and the pressure American government took on the financial institutions to grant credits to everyone who wanted them. Was that a free market? Mr. Springsteen should educate himself at least a bit.

Well I don't. So that's that out of the way.

You're a conservative Republican with morals, meaning what? That your opponents don't have morals?

You don't like when mothers kill their children... which has what to do with the other discussion in this thread? And you ask why I used the word wingnut.

You don't want the government controlling every aspect of your life? WHAT THE FUCK HAS THAT GOT TO DO WITH ANYTHING???

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS? RIGHTWING TALKING POINT BINGO!?

Some dems have morals, a lot don't. A lot want more government contol. I guess Im stereotyping a little. However I won't resort to yelling swearing and flaming. That my opinion and I guess God will be the judge on us all.

I think this is a fair point, generally speaking, but I don't think you're being fair to Springsteen specifically.

Indeed.

Pay particular attention to the honorable representatives Waters and Frank in this clip, in destroying a federal housing regulator. It's really an outrage:

Who apparently doesn't know a fuckload about Springsteen and can't be bothered to find out.

It's alright if talking out of your ass about something you don't know about is alright with you.
