Our entire nation is infested with spineless Republican politicians.
Actually it is "Promote the general welfare" no where in the Constitution does it advance the providing of "free services" to a segment of the society. You should look into what "free medical care" has done to the countries now providing it and how medical care declines in a government run medical society.
Bruce, Bruce, Bruce... There's no such thing as "free medicine" -- *someone* ends up stuck paying for it.
I had heard that he was making a movie about Deuce Four, the unit that Michael Yon was embedded with and wrote about (best blog!)in his blog, MichaelYonblogspot.com. Bruce Willis also went to the Deuce Four banquet when their tour ended, and they were back in the states.
My respect shot up for him 100%.
Didn't Clint Eastwood do this plot twenty years ago as "The Gauntlet" ?
I like his attitude overall...
Bruce must be smart enough to know the first loss is the cheapest..
I know all about that.
That's why I specified people who CAN'T help themselves. There's a huge difference between them and people out for freebies.
Aghazarian, Benoit, Blakeslee, Bogh, Cogdill, ...
There are 21 more in the Assembly.
Yippee kai-yay, mo-, um, my good man.
Thirty years ago, actually (yeah, we're getting old).
So basically nobody with the ability to actually make something happen or get close to helping us in California.
Not that either major politcal party will currently support.
Probably the most effective politician would be a conservative Democrat but the CDP has sent out death squads to extinguish them at birth.
"Ditto, except for the logical disconnect between these two statements:
I'm a Republican only as far as I want a smaller government.
I want them to take care of the elderly and give them free medicine, give them whatever they need."
Don't forget he wants to pay cops and every other government worker hundreds of thousands a year.
The prick that writes tickets in a speed trap must have a higher value to him, than it does to me.
Walter Bruce Willis (born March 19, 1955 in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany) is an American actor and musician. Born at a military base to an American father and a German Lutheran mother, he was raised in Penns Grove, New Jersey and moved to New York to become an actor. He first found fame with his starring role in the hit TV series Moonlighting (198589) before starring in the Die Hard films.
I'm easily annoyed by everybody jumping on the lobbyist issue. Reform may be needed but the concept of lobbying is central to the success of our form of government. First they go after funding and then the messengers. I disagreed with McCain-Feingold and going after lobbyist is the nuclear option in that war. I am happy to discuss reform but the generalizations about getting rid of the lobbyists is just so much thoughtless garbage. I get to together with a couple hundred of fellow like minded Americans and we pay to send a representative to express our point of view.........that's a fundamental right IMHO.
Mr. Willis you are welcome in my police pizza shop any time.
My kinda guy.
You think there may be a run for office in Bruce's future?
Now there's a suggestion!
I love Bruce, don't get me wrong.
I wonder how long until this is on an episode of South Park!
Yes, maybe he could become governor of Minnesota. Ya think?
I'd love to see him move to Mass and boot Fat Teddy out. Talk about going from one extreme to the other.
Awesome thought. Too bad Bruce's website is down; we could shoot him an e-mail.
Money where his mouth (and heart) is , another Hero like Mel Gibson!
[ Read these: ] did.... Thanks..
My nephew tells me that Harry Browne was corrupt.
If that made him the "Libertarian party's best ever candidate" then that party has some work to do.
I think the Libertarians would make for a much better loyal opposition party to the Republicans than the traitorous Democrats, so I am rooting for them to overpower the Dems and throw them into the waste bin of history. But they still need to field better candidates.
I just bought Die Hard to send to a Stryker unit patrolling the Syrian border.
My favorite action film.
You wanted a picture? Ah, here's a nice one from memory lane.
(Denny Crane: "I Don't Want To Socialize With A Pinko Liberal Democrat Commie. Say What You Like About Republicans. We Stick To Our Convictions. Even When We Know We're Dead Wrong.")
Sounds like what many of us say. Conservative first, Republican second.
This rant and this thread are kinda our little anti-Oscar "statement."
Your nephew could be wrong.
3 Things to think about:
1."Do not bear false witness"
2.Best not to speak ill of the dead.
3.They say the same thing about Bush, Clinton, and Gore and every other person who steps up to be a leader....
Just a thought, with Harry's passing away.
Bruce Willis PING special delivery for you.
Bruce must feel lonely among all those Hollywood uber Lefties...
Libertarians don't do it for me. They seem to be pushing the drug legalization thing a bit too much, which I could never support. The Constitution Party is the closest thing I can see to a real conservative party. The guy in California, from the Minutemen (I can't remember his name right now), is running for office as a part of the Taxpayers Party, which is California's branch of the CP.
PMJI late here. James Madison, in discussing specifically the limitations of the "general welfare" provision (either in the Federalist Papers or in his personal correspondence - don't have the cite handy) nailed it down even tighter, stating that the Federal governmet was only authorized to promote the general welfare though the exercise of the specific, limited set of enumerated powers outlined in the Constitution.
The doctorine IS liberal in the personal freedoms area; but it is very conservative when it comes to Constitutional powers and the rights of the people!
What we need is a new party name that says what it Stands for more clearly.
Not mine. I have 2.
1 is Mr. Smith and the other is Mr. Wesson.
My nephew voted for Browne, so he would probably be more skeptical of reports of corruption.
In politics, there is a limit to how much one sweeps under the rug after a politician dies.
History should be reasonably accurate to assist future voters to make sound choices.
I did not bear false witness. This was a true report of what my nephew said, and he seemed pretty positive about the amount of evidence that had come to light.
However, in fairness, I will try to get his sources for him and correct the record if I'm not impressed with his evidence.
"He looks like a fat, very rich actor pretending he's a fisherman."
I'm not flaming you, but think about this: if you repeat an untruth, that's how lies get spread. There's plenty of people who will repeat anything bad said about President Bush, and they don't know or CARE that it's untrue....
Then again what do we know realy, unless we see it first hand.
Yeah, he's a "Republican" all righty.
"I'm a Republican only as far as I want a smaller government." [Snip] "I want the government to... the kids in foster care... take care of the elderly and give them free medicine, give them whatever they need."
Typical liberal hypocrite. He wants bigger government without the responsibility to pay for it.
Can't help lovin' that man o' (wish he was) mine....
...although Kiefer is givin' him a run for the money....
Gotta keep sending you the good pings, you know. Anything to make a nice lady smile!
While I don't completely disagree with that statement, I would suggest that the VERY last line between us and the wolves and the chaos is the 2nd Amendment.
That was well demonstrated by the LA riots a few years ago when the cops bugged out of the riot area and left the law abiding people there alone to defend themselves against wolves and chaos. The people who were armed survived and protected their property, a lot of those who weren't armed didn't. That picture of a Korean merchant standing on the roof of his undamaged store with a semiauto rifle in his hands while other buildings all around his were looted and burning spoke volumes.
Thanks for remembering that image from the 1992 riots. Koreans rock. For the most part, they have been a beneficial addition to American society. They work hard, are law-abiding and mostly Republican.
