    Disingenuousness doesn't help your case. You and I both know that half breed is a derogatory racial slur. Shame on you.

    Half Breed:

    (hăf'brēd', häf'-)
    n. Offensive
    A person of mixed racial descent, especially a person of Native American and white parentage.

    adj.
    Half-blooded; hybrid. Used of animals.

    It also means hybrid.



    There isn't anything wrong with America that liberal ideology, properly applied by government experts, can't make worse.

    Another uncle was executed after a revolutionary kangaroo court found him guilty of "crimes against the revolution". His crime? He was a Captain of the police traffic squad in Havana. He had never participated in anything other than his duties as a traffic cop and commander of his traffic squad.

    I am a former active duty US Marine (Military Police) who volunteered to serve back in 1974. Although I never served in combat I was ready, willing, and able to serve my country (USA) wherever the job called for it. I served four years and was honorably discharged. I did it because I love my country and I wanted to repay a small part of the kindness that was shown to me and mine by the government / citizens of the US.

    You don't know a thing about me. So please lay off with the Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist nonsense.

    The Affordable Health Care Act is not socialist "state healthcare" it is simply a requirement to obtain PRIVATE health care which is in turn provided by private medical facilities and doctors. It was not created by democrats or socialists or communists, it was based on Republican ideas (Romneycare in MA).

    I am truly sorry about what happened to your grandfather, but your argument is based on a logical fallacy (false analogy/ apples to oranges). American liberals did not kill him, European Social Democrats did not kill him, a corrupt, evil, and tyrannical system killed him, backwardness and stupidity killed him, the Russian penchant for strongman dictators and brutality killed him.

    Yes, our PUBLIC education system, (*gasp* there goes that creepy socialism again) was once the envy of the world, so what happened? The conservatives vilified the teachers as "union thugs" and gutted funding for educational programs.

    Our universities are still among the very best in the world and are the preferred institutions of higher learning for the sons and daughters of the world's elite who can come in and pay the high costs of tuition and boarding, while middle class Americans find themselves having to load up on debt and basically sell their souls just to pay for second string university costs. Of course the very wealthiest Americans have no such problems paying for an Ivy League education but then again they're "special" and so much more deserving than us mere peons.

    Our national pension system (Social Security) was raided by Republicans beginning with Ronald Reagan in order to fund his massive military spending and star wars. Our elderly people are getting dumped on by conservative Republicans who resist and reject any reasonable cost of living adjustments, while promoting corporate welfare and more tax cuts for the very wealthiest, thus placing an ever increasing burden on the middle class and the poor. The ultimate goal of the conservative republicans is to do away with Social Security and replace it with schemes that will assure that the next time the bankers, and their Wall Street partners in crime cause another financial collapse rip-off, the elderly will lose all their retirement money while the criminals make out like the bandits that they are. Privatized profits, socialized losses and huge bonuses for the scammers.

    Our media is controlled by a handful of private corporations and exists today mainly to promote whatever the oligarchs want them to. The conservatives have severely cut public radio and television funding to the point that they are no longer independent programming sources. It wasn't the liberals that did this, in fact progressives fought them tooth and nail all along.

    Who created the "Patriot Act"? Who ordered the NSA surveillance? Who approved all of the repressive laws? Oh yeah, it was Republicans. Who fought against them? The liberals that you seem to detest so very much.

    Conservatives on the Supreme Court have ruled that corporations are people, that the civil rights act is no longer needed, and that money equals free speech. In doing so they have put up our system of government for sale to the highest bidders.

    Now you tell me, where do you think the conservative path leads?

    Yeah, I am a Communist and a Stalinist just pining away for the good old days of Uncle Joe, Mao, and Pol Pot, just because I believe that the rich and corporations should pay their fair share of our taxes, because I support reinstatement of Glass-Steagal regulation of the banking system, because I want clean air and clean water for all, because (along with 98% of the world's scientists) I believe that Global Warming is a clear and present danger to all humanity, because I believe that women should have reproductive rights, because I believe in investing in our public infrastructure, because I support a living age, because I support voting rights for all, because I believe that in the wealthiest nation on the planet no one should go hungry or homeless, and because I didn't have a conniption fit when an African American was democratically elected TWICE. Yeah I'm a real commie, aren't I tovarisch?

    BRAVO! An excellent post, Jerry. You should be writing a column somewhere. Absolutely brilliant, and excellent.

    Actually he is wholly non accurate. As example your national pension system has been raided by both parties for decades.

    Dub, Dub, Dub...why must you pretend so much? Do you really think you're fooling anyone? You are about as real as a unicorn, or the lies you post. Sad really, a grown man in his 60's who is so detached from the truth that he no longer can differentiate between his fantasy world and reality.

    See kids? That's what happens with your brain on a steady diet of right wing talking points, FAUX news, and conservative radio..let that be a warning to you.

    Once again and please pay attention:

    Half Breed:

    n. Offensive

    A person of mixed racial descent, especially a person of Native American and white parentage.

    LOL! I noticed that you are not even denying that you are LWW. Why not just post as LWW? Are you banned?

    I wasn't even banned on AZ, jut trying to make a fresh start, and you talked Wilson into banning me because I ignored you.
    The new mod is giving you a chance. I really don't mind if you want to pretend to be Russian but this"tovarisch"crap is getting tiresome.

    Why you were banned has nothing to do with me and I will not defend myself against accusations based on paranoia. You seem to thrive on claiming to be a victim.

    Again I notice you are not denying you are LWW, comrade. LMAO!

    A hint. If you are trying to hide the fact that you are posting under a bogus identity, at least vary your wording."victim", "regime", we've heard it all a million times, Larry.
