Tell the BIG LIE, tell it over and over, and eventually people will believe it.
The BIG LIE the right has been telling for years is that we're broke. We're not, you just need to go back over the last 30 years and see where the money has been going.
The middle class, or as I call them, AMERICAN TAXPAYERS, have had flat to little wage growth since Reagan. The top 1% has seen a 400% increase in income since 1980.
Check out the tax code. How many of the 10,000 pages are tax breaks for the average American, and how many are for the Fortune 500?
There are takers in America today and they're stealing from everyone. They're called bankers, hedge fund managers, hyper-traders, and CEO's, who don't actually make anything but extract huge amounts of wealth from the American people.23 hours ago
No way educateAZ, this guy is awesome!
He's clearly doing a comedy bit and you're just not getting the joke.24 hours ago
He forgot to mention that "Act of Terror" and "Terrorist Act" are not the same thing. Clown.
The mainstream media has been all over Benghazi, the problem is there is no scandal here. There is a desperate attempt to pin something, anything, on Hillary Clinton, because they know if she runs in 2016, they can't beat her.

Funny you should mention Ted Nugent. Little Whiny Ted avoided the draft by not wiping his own behind for a few weeks before his physical. He bragged about it in interviews years ago. Said he wasn't going to give up rocking to go "play army".
He likes to run around onstage yelling about Obama and waving guns in the air. You may agree with his politics, but if you want an example of a responsible gun owner, Ted ain't the guy. Guns are not toys.
The far right always claims moral superiority, but pick any right-wingnut and dig into their past, or even their present, and watch how fast you learn it's "do as I say, not as I do".24 hours ago
Unless you're going to say "X is a problem, the solution to X is Y", then you're not really contributing anything useful.
There are no specific solutions here, only insults and anger.
When did conservatives get to be so whiny?3 weeks ago
Criminals don't obey laws, so why have any?
The solution to gun violence is more guns.
Limiting capacity doesn't always work, only sometimes, so why bother?
The only thing missing from this fantasy is the line "An armed society is a polite society".
To which I would say, an armed society is a third world country.
I come here for the silly Tea Party nonsense, and I'm never disappointed, but this guy really, really loves his big manly guns, and just can't stop thinking about them.3 weeks ago
Wow! This is awesome! Bill defeats his own argument once again, and makes the case for universal background checks!
He says we don't need universal background checks because they won't work, criminals will still find ways to get guns.
Criminal don't obey the laws, so why bother having any laws at all?
But then he gives numbers on bad guys denied guns for what? Failing background checks!
So he's saying background checks really do work!
Good for you, Bill, you've made the case for common sense gun control once again!!!4 weeks ago
Two weeks ago I went out into my backyard to enjoy the sunny day and beautiful blue sky my creator gave to me only to look up and see a plane towing an ad for a national insurance company, complete with smiling gecko face.
There are very few moments of the day in the modern world where someone isn't shoving their ads in our faces, trying to separate us from our money for their personal gain.
We always buy local first, when our neighbors prosper we all prosper, but whining that you're not allowed to break the rules so you can intrude on our day with your ads isn't getting me to your door.1 month ago
And last week in Nelson, Georgia, the city council just voted to require everyone to own a gun.
That's how America works, Bill, Glendale is taking a stand, and Nelson is taking a stand, based on the wants and desires of their constituents.
And please, stop with the poorly thought out analogies. Comparing deaths in car accidents and deaths from gunshot wounds is apples and oranges.
You are actually making the case for gun control.
An automobile is used for transportation and an accident happened and someone died.
A gun is made to kill people and was used as designed.
So it would make sense to regulate the automobile, a useful machine, with safety standards and traffic laws, to limit the number of accidents and deaths.
And based on your own thinking, it would then make sense to limit gun deaths, with background checks (from 1994 to 2008, 1.8 million people failed BGC's), and to limit the type and capacity of firearms.
If you want to make your case, you may want to spend more time thinking things through.1 month ago
Okay, let me see if I can decipher the latest angry old man rant....
You don't like people who don't believe the same things as you.
You think everyone should act the way you tell them to, based on your morals.
You believe you have facts, such as information on gun control, but you do not.
I'm going to assume you get all your information from cable news, Tea Party emails, AM radio hate-talk, and the standard right-wing websites. The problem with this is you do not get all the facts, you get sold a story to prop up your existing beliefs, whether the stories are complete and true or not.
Common sense, something you claim is in short supply, would suggest that if you limit your information sources to outlets that you already agree with, you are not getting all the facts.
I bet that's by design, because you clearly do not want the facts as they are, you want only the facts that fit your limited world view.
I suppose the bottom line is that if you want to tell the rest of us how to behave and what to believe, to borrow an expression you used in an earlier rant on this site, go pound sand.
