    The OP should be easy to counter, attack and weaken. Why don't I see the right-wingers trying?

    troll says what?

    and I'm sure your definition of "genuinely contributes" is fair; taking into account all possible life scenarios in which various people might find themselves out of work.
    what exactly is the liberal machine?
    where is it located?
    how do you operate it?

    false statement is false.

    did you even read page 2 of this thread?

    Haha.

    I can say that most of us saw this as the troll article it is and so who gives a crap about discussing it?

    Well, it's easy to say that as long as your Glenn Becks and Rush Limbaughs are fueling the conservative machine of the world, there's always those that are wanting to balance those that are running this liberal machine... Seems like we need more balance of yin and yang in this country. Question is...which side is yin, and which side is yang?

    well you hit the nail on the head. more or less.

    the real problem with politics today is that no one represents the middle ground.
    plenty of reasonable people with reasonable ideas go unheard and/or unnoticed because the extremes on BOTH sides have become dominant.

    the crazy shouting that comes from the corners totally drowns out any hope that those in between have for bringing the 2 together. and no major politician has stepped up in a real effort to capture this middle ground or speak out on its behalf. the vast majority of US citizens live in this territory; most people are more Centrist than they are Liberal or Conservative.

    unfortunately the state of our politics does not reflect this at all.

    You know how some answers best come in parables for the simple minded? Here is one for a few of you. And don't you start being all nice and making sense jack. You got fire boy! On another note; you were right about much of what you just said.

    THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:

    This one is a little different...
    Two Different Versions...
    Two Different Morals...

    OLD VERSION

    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

    The grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

    MORAL OF THE OLD STORY: Be responsible for yourself!


    MODERN VERSION


    The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be
    allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

    ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC and NPR show up to
    document and provide pictures and video of the shivering grasshopper
    next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
    America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

    How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

    Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah
    with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green...'
    Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We shall overcome.

    Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper's sake, while he damns the ants.

    President Obama condemns the ant and blames
    President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope
    for the grasshopper's plight.

    Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King and on another show (Anderson Cooper 360) that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

    Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
    Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

    The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

    The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

    The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

    The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.

    MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2012.


    Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.
    Don't bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn't understand it anyways.

    Fox pushes out lies all the time.

    O'Reilly fails to understand basic science.

    Rush gets shut up on his own show by a veteran.

    And you guys wonder why we perceive Fox viewers to be half-wits?

    Oh, and let's not forget that fiasco with whuts-her-butt and ME1.

    All media outlets spew crap. Just because most of them are spewing crap you want to hear doesn't make it any less crap.
