Easier to brainwash them while they are still impressionable.

Anyone want to take a guess on who will be paying for this?

I can see where this will be heading; a bunch of young thugs beating and brutalizing folks that don't agree with his policies.

Yep, that's me. A 60 year old fart in a brown (well camo) shirt, beating up on people who disagree with my "messiah's" policies. As one who makes automatic monthly donations, I don't think I quite fit your description and have never actually met anyone else who does. Sorry.

Are the brown shirts the same ones who are pushing S2099 through congress which will force everyone to committ abortions with handguns before submitting to the death-panels being run by illegal aliens who got free health care? AAgh! The Sky is falling AGAIN!

You two can live in denial all you want.

I know how dangerous a bunch of misled inner-city youths can become. Inner-city youths will become more dangerous as more and more Americans reject Obama's attempt to make the USA a socialist country.

Do college students who don't get involved with OFA get credits for opposing his reforms. 1 vote for Obama = 1 college credit 1 vote for Obama = 1 carton of smokes, etc, etc, etc, etc. lol

LOL. Right, because you pimping the theory that Cheney started a war with Iraq to enrich himself and his Halliburton cronies is so much less crazy than brown shirts and death panels. :rolleyes:

We can do better than brown shirts can't we? Maybe a black shirt with a rainbow patch over the heart or a red shirt with the hammer and sickle emblem across the back. Very stylish.

In fact, this idea could become so big that perhaps our Dear Leader should expand his Cabinet to include the Department of the Khmer Rouge. With so many unemployed and disenfranchised youth in this country what better way to get them back to work. They could patrol the streets on bicycles with the authority to issue warnings and citations. Two warnings and you're sent to a re-education camp.

Unlimited potential. We could have these youth snitch on their parents, too. Dad listening to Rush on the radio...turn him in. Bad mouthing our Dear Leader at home...turn him in. No Koran next to the Bible, not good...turn them in.

This country will be straightened out in no time.

Not at all Hew. I just made a collage of right wing extreme statements that have all been debunked as false!

As for Halliburton, just look at the total sum of non-competitive contracts awarded to a company who gave D.C. $42 million in severance pay after several years of mediocre performance.

Just pretend it was Biden in that situation, and how you would react.

As for Halliburton, just look at the total sum of non-competitive contracts awarded to a company who gave D.C. $42 million in severance pay after several years of mediocre performance.
Here we go again.

- Where did you get the figure of $42 million for Cheney's "severance pay?" Google "Cheny Halliburton $42 million" or any other iteration of terms that indicate $42 million and you get bubkus. So where did you come up with $42 mil?

- Cheney didn't receive "severance pay." He received salary that he earned and deferred while employed by Halliburton, and he received mult-millions (potentially/likely) worth of stock options. When he became VP he purchased a $15,000 insurance policy to protect his deferred salary (to blunt the inevitable claims that he had a vested interest in keeping Halliburton afloat), and he directed that any post-tax profits derived from exercised options be given to charity. Moreover, the charitable contributions would not be claimed on his tax filing.

- Every business article I've read regarding his term at the helm of Halliburton was that he did a good or excellent job. Got any non-moveon.org articles I could read saying he was a mediocre CEO?

- The LOGCAP contract that got Halliburton into Iraq and provided the bulk of their Iraq-related revenues was a competitively bid contract. DynCorp had the LOGCAP contract immediately before Halliburton. As an aside, when DynCorp had the contract they weren't able to totally fulfill their obligations so the Clinton Defense Dept. had to award a separate, truly no-bid contract to Halliburton to provide logistical support in Bosnia and Serbia during the height of our presence there. LOGCAP was a huge open-ended, cost-plus contract. That the govt./DoD chose to task Halliburton with multiple responsibilities in the lead-up/aftermath of a war with the most expedient contractual method, LOGCAP, shouldn't have been a shocker. Moreover, there are few, if any, companies that have the ability and track record to provide the services the govt. was asking for.

I've got no problem with anyone thinking Cheney is/was a jerk, loose cannon, incompetant, dunce, whatever. But I find it repugnant that anyone would suggest that he would put troops in harms' way so he could earn more money. The facts don't support it. Common sense doesn't support it. Anyone who insinuates that, in my mind, is forever stamped with a scarlett letter M for "MOONBAT."

nincom-poop! You've taken name-calling to a new level! Not obscene, not offensive, but "cute" in a "gee Wally, Eddie Haskell called me nincompoop" kinda way!

What exactly is a nincom? I know what a poop is, but not a nincom.

I'll have to google that, to see if my feelings should be hurting right now.:razz:

Nincompoop. Interesting acronym. Probably something of military origin like FUBAR.

The origin of nincompoop is a matter of speculation, although there are a few interesting theories. One of the earliest literary uses of "nincompoop" occurred in a 1676 play called The Plain Dealer, written by British playwright William Wycherley. One character scolds another, calling him a "senseless, impertinent, quibbling, drivelling, feeble, paralytic, impotent, fumbling, frigid nincompoop." Even earlier references contain the variant spellings "nicompoop" and "nickumpoop."

Some have speculated that the word nincompoop is a nonsense word which combines elements of other words implying ignorance or stupidity. The word "ninny," for example, was a corruption of "innocent," meaning a na´ve or gullible person. In Dutch, the word poop was often used to describe a fool. It is conceivable that the originator of "nincompoop" was seeking to combine several unsophisticated words into one nonsensical but descriptive word.

Others believe the word nincompoop was a corruption of the Latin phrase non compos mentis, meaning "not of sound mind." This theory has not been universally embraced, however, since the original spellings of "nincompoop" do not suggest such a relationship. Another similar theory suggests that nincompoop was inspired by a French phrase, ne comprend pas, meaning "he does not understand." It is possible that a British native familiar with the French language playfully created a new guttural insult, complete with a coarse Dutch ending.

I'm impressed. Quite sophisticated! But you knew that already!

Oops, I forgot to cite the above passage.....what a nimcompoop! I got it from Google, and thought it would copy the title, source, etc...

I am not easily, or at all, led or unduly alarmed about much. However Obama surrounds himself with true believers and for a guy that everyone claims is so politically savvy he doesn't seem to have a clue. That either means he's not up to the job or he truly believes that the American people are a bunch of idiots and only he and those he surrounds himself with knows what's best for all of us. If it's either of the above it is, at the very least, cause for concern.

LOL. Thanks for the random Cheney/Halliburton links. I wasn't disputing that that sort of lib spewage was available on the internet for you to blindly parrot; I was disputing the accuracy and veracity of some of their/your spewage.

Btw, which is the link that confirms that he received $42 million severance pay? Or did you just pull that figure out of thin air and throw it up against the wall?

Lastly, here's 5,725 hits for "Cheney Halliburton" on the Fox site http://www.foxnews.com/search-results/search?q=cheney+halliburton If you take the exhaustive research step of clicking on that link, on the very first page you'll find FOX reporting on nearly every one of the Halliburton/Cheney claims you've made. I don't consider FOX to be the paragon of journalistic integrity, but their accuracy rate is about 42 million X better than yours.

Even louder LOL here! Just what I expected. I almost didn't bother to post due to lack of credible sources....ie FoxNews!

I guess Cheney only took what, $36 million....hey, what's 6 mil anyway? I can just imagine the outrage if we found Biden took a nickel from an industry that stands to profit at the cost of 4000 service men and women's lives!

Ah, what the heck...I should know better:confused:

I guess Cheney only took what, $36 million Are you deaf?!? (guess that movie) He didn't "take" $36 million (or whatever number you choose to conjure up). He received stock options. Options, that when exercised, will not earn him a penny. ....hey, what's 6 mil anyway? Yes, you've already said before that being factual isn't important or a concern to you. So in that context, you're right...who cares what numbers you use?

During the 2004 campaign, FactCheck investigated Kerry ads accusing Cheney of financial conflicts as a result of on-going ties to Halliburton. They concluded that the Kerry advertisements were false and stated that Cheney had no financial relationship to Halliburton after becoming V-P that would constitute any form of conflict: http://www.factcheck.org/kerry_ad_falsely_accuses_cheney_on_halliburton.htm l
