    DT, Jakey-poo is over at Fly’s thread blaming Obama and the dems for driving the car off the cliff and robbing us of our free market system …. last I checked the GOP got drunk on deregulation and ruined the capitalist vehicle then handed O the keys … conservatism or a bunch of frat boys out on a Saturday night?

    This is like a little support group over here… away from the beefheads, that’s right, BEEFHEADS, who are busy blaming a dude who has been in office for a month.

    yo momma, “the Rage” will be back next week… no worries.

    Listen to the talking asshats on CNBC, esp Big-tits, complaining about tax hikes for the top 2% of this country … like she qualifies! What, those who’ve prospered the most now complain about paying a few % more in taxes to keep the money engine running … I doubt it. Don’t think they are that unpatriotic to prefer seeing the whole thing go down the shitter so they can bank a few more $.

    Carry on DT….

    The Jindal speech was pretty embarrassing. I remember watching it in real time, thinking: is this dude really saying this?

    If this guy and Palin (gasp!) are the Republican ticket for 2012, the Democrats arent going away any time soon.

    They’ve prospered because they’ve earned it.

    Jindal is an idiot.

    Redistribution of wealth never works.

    If this keeps up, there will be no wealthy to re-distribute from. Then where will ya’ll go for your handouts?

    You’ll go to the government. Exactly. Slaves to the state. That’s what they want you to be and you all are buying it hook, line, and sinker.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will allow tax breaks given to wealthier Americans under his predecessor, George W. Bush, to expire as scheduled rather than eliminate them sooner, an administration official said on Saturday.

    We’re doomed! Dooooooooooomed! Back to the caves we all lived in prior to 2001!

    Wood, We’ve had class warfare for the last two decades sans Clinton. Business takes mfg off shore, wealthy hide cash in Switzerland, Hedge Fund Mgrs take huge profits as cap gains via shuffling assets without adding any true wealth to the nation and now we find most that have worked hard have really lied, cheated and stole.

    So now that the new Pres wants to adjust the scales of justice and preserve the engine of the US economy you/they cry class warfare on the rich? Bullshit …

    As long as 72% of our economy is dependent on the consumer someone damn well better do something to bring things back to equilibrium … that doesn’t be socialism but so far the only ones getting any handouts have been those that got us here.

    8, I do not recall mentioning class warfare. I mentioned redistribution of wealth, which is taking money from people who earned it and giving it to people who didn’t earn it. The class warfare as you call it happens when people believe erroneously that they are entitled to something that they did not earn through labor or intellectual property. See, since there are fewer rich than poor, this is an easy argument to put forward. However, the true intent and purpose is to put poor people, typically with little education, into a class that cannot nor will not help themselves. Once they are reliant on the Democrats to ensure their survival, then the Dems have people who MUST vote for them as their survival depends on it. Now that is a nasty, nasty game that the Dems play, but it is true, and it is all about power.

    8, the engines of the economy are broken due to leverage and debt, not due to class warfare. As evidence, note the people who were poor who were allowed to buy houses they couldn’t afford. It is due to people in this country being made to feel guilty by liberal democrats that we have shifted to a state where we are beginning to give people things they have never worked to earn.

    Your statement about Clinton is insane. It all started with Clinton, and was furthered by Bush.

    You’re right, we are a consumer nation. And yet, like a typical liberal, you look for someone, anyone to “fix” things. Look inside yourself my friend.

    I tell you how you fix things. You tell people they will work for what the market wage is. If you want a job, get out in the fields with Mexicans and work for minimum wage. If they can’t afford a house, they rent. Can’t pay their bills, they lose their property.

    The problem is that we’ve become a society that believes that everyone deserves the same standard of living, just because. That is bullshit. You earn your standard of living, and if your kids are lucky, they will be able to maintain it through their own hard work.

    Don’t give me any bullshit about this. My Dad grew up in the Ozarks of Mo, with a mother and father who had 8 and 6th grade educations. They had no electricity, no running water. He was legally blind in his left eye, and because the dr’s in town ordered it, his house out in the country was the first to get electricity.

    My dad paid his way through college and became vice president at a fortune 500 company. His brother still lives in the same small town, collecting disability, and unemployment, welfare, whatever he can. He blames all of his problems on anyone but himself. Yet, his brother did very well, and he had the same opportunities as his brother. Liberals love for people to blame it on someone else, as it keeps them slaves in the welfare class.

    What you liberals propose turn people into Zombies who rely on the state for survival. These same people are evenutally going to come after your brains when this whole thing falls apart as they will have nothing and the state will be unable to provide.

    I’m done here 8. I like you and I do not want to get angry with you about this.

    Redistribution of Wealth: works both ways … mostly trickle up but now some will feel the pain of trickle down

    I could be wrong (as I wasn’t a staunch follower of O) but I’d like to think the admin is more concerned with working middle class than funding potential poor dem voters of the future …. it’s in their best interest to save the middle class for both their (dems & MC) survivals

    LOL … yeah Wood, “we as a nation” felt so sorry we put a chicken in every pot, a car in every garage and a McMansion at everyone’s disposal … Seems to me that instead of working for their commissions and bonuses, that the lenders did most of the lying and cheating to move mortgages and houses to those hopeful souls that were working the crops of CA, in order to put that leverage that Bush/Greenie/SEC approved to work for quick returns

    I’m not a “typical liberal” …. I think spec investors, Banks, IB, Bondholders (Like Fly said) etal should take the hit rather than taxpapyers but I realize that to let that happen would be the catalyst to armageddon and fixing the financial system is in everyone’s best interest … especially the rich so it’s time for them to prove their patriotism rather than salute the Flag and support the military with “words” of encouragement.

    Stop giving tax credits to U S businesses to take their best paying jobs abroad or “Inc” in Puerto Rico, Abu Dhabi, Switzerland, etc. to avoid taxes. You expect educated people to work at Mickey D’s, a dry cleaners, customer svc job or move overseas to support their families? If this continues, you too may be asked to move to India some day Wood …

    So we should ignore the children in the Appalachians and hope that they are as resourceful as your dad … statistically it makes sense that 1 of 2 made it doesn’t it. Your dad’s twin could have had the same education but not gotten the same opportunity … that’s the beauty of America …. anyone can make it, given the drive, opportunity (or luck) and sometimes but not always the education … I’ve known plenty that made it to the big show with nothing more than a HS ed … right place at right time … and plenty that got there and didn’t deserve it either

    Deal with reality … when you age some, get fucked around by Corp America as we all do eventually, worry about your children’s future when you are no longer responsible for them, then you’ll reflect on these philosophical/political debates from another perspective … it just happens, no need to drink the kool-aide, it comes from experience.

    Thanks to my brother for tipping me to this post, as I’d never have checked on my own.

    Shed, you’ve written one of the most beautiful posts I’ve seen on these threads, and I mean that sincerely.

    If the libs can’t get it after that tutorial, well, you probably studied cognitive dissonance somewhere along the line…

    Glad to have inadvertantly been of service, btw — seeing that my p’wnage of the nasty d’bag currently occupying Rage’s site likely started the whole ball rolling. 😉

    Seriously, Fly should put that sucker in the famous quotes section. That’ll be some recompense, at least, for his sullying this site with loose stool.

    Wood the biggest problem with your comment is your use of “liberal” stereotypes. I’m a far left wing liberal on many issues, yet agree with many of your points so you could say I’m far right fiscally, so enough with the “all you liberals” crap because it makes you sound like another talking head idiot who lumps everyone into a bucket.

    I believe in creating an equal playing field for all, no handouts. The “liberals” tend to get this issue more right then the “conservatives” even though they completely screw it up on so many levels.

    Jake (aka Angry Old Dude),

    Your accusation of me masking my identity is crazy. I hope that Jeremy will be able to prove it false.

    The only one who consistently masks his identity around here (Mr. Limm etc) is you. No wonder the comment section has deteriorated around here…

    And yes, Woody wrote a great response. The contrast between his style and yours is telling.

    So Jeremy, or Fly, please clear me of Jake’s slander. I’m not the only person who reads iBC who hates his venom. I am sure it’s the opposite. The majority don’t like his shit and frankly, it debases your site.

    Stop your whining Dino Commie. Whenever we talk politics I use my well known sig here. Even my comic pieces are fronted, as everyone knows its me (and I use very few characters since I started posting images in my name).

    You on the other hand, are a passive aggressive pussy. You’ve been baiting me to comment ever since you’ve been allowed (mistakenly, imho) to inhabit this noble blogspace, and when I finally show up, you’re in tears.

    Woody makes a fine and noble post, and I commented that it’s ironic that you and your leftist buddies got blindside p’owned trying to get my goat. If you can’t handle that subtle a jibe, you really need to just go full fetal and retire from the biz en masse.

    Am I angry? Just at your naivete in hanging on to hazy college age utopian nostrums . I have four kids, and I know you have at least one. It’s time you start taking that responsibility seriously and thinking about their future.

    Jake out.

    Jake,

    I’m done responding to you. You’ve been a cancer on this site since forever. In time I hope that’s remedied.

    If you can’t recognize friendly baiting, then you’re the one with issues. Just trying to make this place fun. No passive aggression here. Whenever I have something to say to you, I come out and say it.

    Meanwhile, since you brought it up (how surprising) my kids will grow up happy, which is all I want out of life.

    Now fuck off.

    Oh, it’s “friendly baiting” now? Yet every time you post something in the comment section its some passive aggressive shit about me being a cancer or a blight?

    Look you — yes, passive-aggressive, I know this blog well enough to know that your views are in a minority, and I certainly know enough about politics and the economy to counter your weak rhetoric. My question is, why do you keep attacking me like it’s some point of honour (sic) for you, and then retreat behind bleats of offense when I trash your shit?

    If you want to have fun, that’s one thing, but if you’re going to call me out on serious matters, you are going to get pummelled. I take the Constituion and the abrogation of civil liberties and property rights quite seriously. If you think your kids will grow up “happy” believing in the liberal ideology of victimization and equal outcomes, God go with you. Let’s just say I’ve had plenty of anecdotal experience to note that’s often not the case.

    Who knows, maybe that’s just New York, and you’ll escape the bill that comes due. As I said, God go with you.

    you have no fucking idea what cancer is, no clue at all. you should not have said that. attack him for what he says, but do not call him a cancer. your use of that term demeans all people that have been or are afflicted by that disease.

    i for one love Jake, and i hope he does not fucking change.

    Yeah, Tiger fell a little flat in the second round but I saw him do plenty of smiling and appeared to be glad to playing again. My kid is playing a tournament this weekend in Destin (a course where Boo Weekly belongs) but the weather is supposed to be bad and it’s about a seven hour drive.
    I’ll probably skip it but will be at the FSU tournament next weekend.
    Only a few left as he will graduate soon and wants to do the pro thing.

    Eventually it will be Q-school.
    I believe that initially he will be playing Hooters Tour events and qualifying for Nationwide tournaments.
    It could or may not be a long haul.
    Oops. There goes gold (up).
    He has a friend on the tour and it took him ten years to get there. Another friend qualified right out of college, lost his card the same year and has been struggling for six years now. He was supposed to be the next Justin Leonard.
    It can be easy or difficult.
