sorry, but the US trying to be the police of the world and being involved in other countries affairs is partially why we are in this economic mess, AND why 9/11 happened, whether you want to admit it or not.
That's not what he's saying. I get his point, but I don't get his point. If Bush had had an address to the nation saying, "I'm going to get Saddam Hussein because he's a murderer of innocents and an architect of genocide," then the war would have been justifiable. A little bit out there considering our concerns (Al-Qaeda) at the time, but at least we could say, "Shit man, the guy is right, we need to take him down at some point."
He didn't say that. He, and Rumsfeld, and Condi, and yes, even Powell got on our televisions and said that these WMDs were an imminent threat. This was not the truth.

Not the truth. Not the truth. Not the truth. Not the truth. Not the truth. Repeat that over and over please.

Nice try but I dont think I was mistaken. Again if I had made the same comment with the exception of one or two words I'd be crucified here and I would be embarrased as well.

Since you are not going to even try and explain why it was racist, let me explain to you why it wasn't.

First of all he didn't saying anything about an entire race, or try and generalize "white culture", etc...

Secondly even if he did, would saying they are Republican be an attack? If I call you a Republican is that a bad thing?

He used hyperbole to categorize a certain portion of voters. I'm male, white, straight, Southern, and Christian... and I'm not a Republican, I didn't take any offense, because I know for the most part he's right.

If you want to see real racism in FYM I could show you.

I don't think Obama has been mentioned in at least 3 pages.

So...

Obama.

What the? Somewhere there's a giant trough of Kool Aid. Do they actually read the bill?


Huffington Post
It was only a matter of time. Chuck Norris has weighed in on the health care debate.

In an op-ed for the conservative outlet TownHall.com, the former kung-fu action hero says that he was thumbing through the health care bill and found a disturbing section that "is about the government's coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development."

The idea that health care reform will lead to government agents raising your children has been floating around right-wing blogs for the last several weeks. Norris' op-ed quickly got a link on the Drudge Report.

But it has no basis in reality. Norris is referring to section 1904 of the House bill, which "[p]rovides grants to States to support voluntary, evidence-based home visitation programs for pregnant women and for families with pre-school age children in order to improve the well-being, health and development of children."

The programs would be voluntary, a number of states already have such programs, and this sort of legislation is introduced almost every year.

Last Congress it was H.R.2343, which sought to "expand quality programs of early childhood home visitation that increase school readiness, child abuse and neglect prevention, and early identification of developmental and health delays, including potential mental health concerns, and for other purposes."

What kind of radical government-takeover advocates cosponsored such treachery? Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.), a member of House GOP leadership, for one. And Republicans Mark Souder (Ind.), Zach Wamp (Tenn.), and Rick Renzi (Ariz.).

The Senate version was introduced by that well-known communist Kit Bond, a Republican from Missouri. Former Republican Rep. Kenny Hulshof of Missouri backed the House measure before he left Congress to run for governor. Republican Senators Pat Roberts (Kan.) and Olympia Snowe (Maine) cosponsored Bond's bill.

Rep. Todd Platts (R-Penn.) sponsored a similar measure this year, H.R. 2667, the Early Support for Families Act. H.R. 2205, the Education Begins at Home Act of 2009, is cosponsored by Republicans Mike Castle (Del.), John McHugh (N.Y.), Vernon Ehlers (Mich.), and Thomas Petri (R-Wisc.).

The bill passed committee unanimously by a voice vote. Republicans spoke highly of home visits at the hearing.

Joe the Plumber, however, has yet to weigh in.
