Posted on 02/19/2009 8:57:51 PM PST by GoodDay
Our mixed economy rests on the effective discarding of the United States Constitution, which placed severe limits on government power and thus stood as a bulwark in defense of an economic system that was almost one of laissez-faire. The Constitutional protections were discarded by a process of pretending that the Constitution could somehow grow or evolve, which actually meant nothing other than choosing to ignore it.
...The present symbolism depicting the relationship between the government and the citizen is that the head of the government, the President of the United States, has at his disposal, with no objection from anyone, Air Force One, which is a Boeing 747 jet plane that costs hundreds of millions of dollars and, when configured for commercial operation, carries more than 450 passengers. At the same time, howls of anger and fury go up when one of the largest private corporations in the country dares to order a 12-seat jet plane for $50 million...

Sure she does—that is, everyone but raines, goerlick, dodd, and most of the obama cabinet.
Cap Maureen Dowd’s salary.. $30,000. is enough for what she does.
Welcome to the club Maureen.
of course she does. but then again, she is an idiot
Maureen Down in shackles.
You are far too generous to Ms. Dowd
Two bits might be more like it.
Heck, make it less than that. She’s like a broken record. She must be eternally going through menopause or something. It’s a wonder any paper still carries her columns.
At least Goebbels had a brain.
“She must be eternally going through menopause or something. Its a wonder any paper still carries her columns.”
So we might say that Dowd both writes for a rag, and is on the rag.
(Sorry. That really was in bad taste.)
BUMP for morning read. /
And a nicer personality too I suspect.
Not kinky enough...
Think “ball gag”
How about a witch trial...with Maureen Dowd in shackles?
“I’ve heard that a persons eyes are the windows to their soul.”
Now, which one is Maureen Dowd?
I don’t remember anything in the rules about pictures of Michael Douglas.
MoDo’s a commie, but a hot commie.
~ ~ R U L E S ! ~ ~
I am prepared to reform the perfidious MoDo, if she be brought to me in shackles. Let it not be said that the noble Mogwai isn’t willing to give of himself for the conservative cause.
Maureen Dowd needs to be in shackles - out in the public square.
Modo, go talk to the man with the “big ears”, who is on a spending spree with our money that makes the “evil” corporate execs look like pikers.
The United States Constitution? What’s that?
Don't worry, there will be show trials, but the marxists won't be the ones running them.
"You are seeing today an all out attempt to marshal the forces of the opposition, using not merely the communists, or their fellow travelers-the deluded liberals, the eggheads, and some of my good friends in both the Democratic and Republican Parties who can become heros over night in the eyes of the left-wing press if they will just join with the jackal pack"
Even Dowd, the typical man-hating feminist, should know that the most favored constituents of both political parties are above our Constitution and laws. If they say that third world slaves are better than us, so should it be. ...same with their decision to beg our trading partners for protection—a great plan that’s been in practice over the past few years.
Hopes for U.S. military ties with China
Don’t worry about it. She’s just a _itch anyway.
You just made me realize something. Look at that face and imagine it in 40 years. She’ll make Helen Thomas look hot.
New York...skyscrapers and E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G ! !
Her only hope of getting laid is a man in shackles.
Let us say instead that the noble Mogwai has toboggoned off of the hill of reason and down into the slough of lunacy.
Not that all of us don't appreciate your sense of self sacrifice. ;^)
