Well played. ;)
@billclausen: "Thank you my Communistic Cannibal co-blogger, I will gladly address your point."
And thank you, Sen. McCarthy, but I am not, nor have I ever been, a member of the Communist Party.
@billclausen: "...a political boundry moved south in a turf war by warring colonial powers."
So what? The initial foundation of the United States was the result of a 'turf war [between] warring colonial powers.' The standards by which you want to 'de-romanticize' Mexico's history in California also apply to the U.S.
But more to the point, I fail to see what this has to do with anything. It never ceases to amaze me that, in a place where the vast majority of streets and cities take their origins from Spanish or Native American languages, we still have people so paranoid about 'multiculturalism' and 'assimilation'. Perhaps it's *you* who need to do the 'assimilating'?

@billcausen: "The irony is that Spanish was brought to this hemisphere by means of force. If one wants to play the linguistic victim card, include the whole story, not just what's politically correct."
Hey Bill, English was also brought to 'this hemisphere' by 'means of force'. Are you going to include *that* in 'the whole story'?

@Priceless: "...I do believe you stated, 'I can handle the occasional nut job like like Realitycheck88 and Priceless".'
Actually, I said, 'I can handle the occasional nut like Realitycheck88 and Priceless.' It never occurred to me to use the word 'job' when referring to you. Or 'work'. Or 'employed'. Or 'intelligent'. Or 'articulate' - words I will never associate with you, I promise.
@Priceless: "Calif.. is not a red state so to blame me because my votes didn't count..."
Ignoring the fact that, in the last 100 years, the state has had 17 Governors - 12 of whom were Republican... wait, you ignore facts, so why am I even bothering?
@Pricess: "Oh, and to quote you so properly..."
See how much smarter you sound when you let someone do the talking for you? This must be what it feels like to teach sign language to a gorilla.

Priceless: "Right-on Realitycheck88 but you and I don't know anything we are just 'occasional nut jobs' ETR's words not mine..."
You can't even properly quote me. And then you went on a rant so devoid of an actual point that you should win an award.
It's good to know I've gotten so under your skin that I'm in your thoughts when I'm not even participating the the thread. Tell us again about how the candidates for whom you vote keep losing elections. Are they as uninformed and racist as you?
@Priceless: "Sorry, I have lots of 'Pride'..."
The truest characters of ignorance are vanity and pride and arrogance. Congrats there, Priceless. You hit the Samuel Butler trifecta.

'Priceless', no. 'Worthless', most certainly.
@Priceless: "...If everybody was simple minded like you this state would be run by dumbocrats."
The blissful ignorance of the reactionary right, struggling to come to terms with a world that has passed them by, and too stupid to know when they're beaten. I don't need to get back at you, buddy. You're miserable enough as it is.

@Priceless: " You really have no clue as to what your talking about as well. REALLY your NOT an EXPERT on EVERY issue the Independent writes about…."
Both you and foofighter exceed my post count in both number and frequency. Unlike you and foofighter, however, I don't enjoy wallowing in my own ignorance.
Let me let you in on a little secret... they hide information from people like you in these things called 'books'. They're pretty easy to open once you've learned to read.

@foofighter: "If a company abuses its customers with lax security measures, it deserves to lose those very same customers who in their right mind, and on their own, will go elsewhere to spend their money."
In the last 3 years, Target had 100 million customers credit cards and ATM pin numbers stolen, Sony had the confidential information of 77 million users stolen (including credit card numbers), Adobe has 130 million user records stolen, Countrywide Financial had 2.5 million users records stolen. These aren't mom and pop shops failing to lock the doors, these are major corporations (two of them in the tech field). Those are just the biggest ones - there are more.
So based on that, foofighter, I have some questions for you.
What would happen to national economy if Target went belly up due to a lack of consumer confidence?
Don't you think (wait, who am I talking to again?) that there should be strict regulations that hold accountable corporations who don't ensure 'public safety' by securing the confidential information of their customers?
And pray tell - what exactly would a 'market place' solution be, when it's the 'market place' solutions, or lack of initiative to implement thereof, that are the causing the problem to begin with?
Do you have even the slightest clue as to what you are talking about? Or is this yet another in a long string of anti-government rants that have no basis in reality and are merely spouted off solely to promote an agenda that's easily proven to be ridiculous?
Have you ever heard of the Commerce Clause? This is precisely the very thing out government was designed to do - regulate interstate and international commerce.

@foofighter: "Read any of your favorite opposition websites to see the articles of impeachment that have already been drafted."
A Facebook rant by some State Senator in Arkansas is not 'drafting articles of impeachment'. I think Sen. Rapert is just trying to find ways to meet Megyn Kelly. Or are to referring to Sen. Stockman, the classless prat who walked out of the State of the Union? Yeah, let's see how far the crazy train goes with these two drips leading the way.
But it's great to see you so threatened, foofighter. That man with '..and [sic] enigmatic background...' (that's right wing code for 'minority', by the way) must really have you running scared.
@Ken_Volok: "The trashy insults, racist innuendo, full-on falsehoods, people have been blocked for less."
Exactly. I can handle the occasional nut like realitycheck88 or Priceless. But foofighter seems hell bent on posting and posting like a petulant child, descending nearly every thread into a parade of factless lunacy.
But hey, if they're going to let him post, I'm going to keep making fun of him and his moronic ideas. It's only fair, really.

@foofighter: "They are not obstructing Obama; they were elected to repudiate Obama."
I gotta' hand it to you, the fact that you have the nerve to call ANYONE dumb after typing these two sentences back to back... that's just 'mazing.
Oh, and do you know what the word 'repudiate' means? Because I don't think you do...
