Favorite classic Tabbai quote:

"The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money” (from Rolling Stone 2009)

Interesting read rising.

So many people wish to co-opt the title conservative, that the word is loosing meaning.

used to be that a person whom dressed, acted, and spent conservatively meant that they dressed modestly, acted modestly, and was wise in his/her purchases

But now with the voracious rebranding of neoconservatives and libertarians someone whom oposses enviromentalists(those used to be called conservationists) ships jobs to china, expands the size and reach of government, though shrink the means to pay for it, are the 'real' conservatives.

Right now the mindbenders are continuing to try to convince those that act, work, and live in a modest way are just like those that parade around on a stage.....

Oh sure santorum and gingrich have conservative tendancies, but every time they let them surface, the neocon/libertarians go into a tirade calling them leftist progressives for even suggesting standing in the way of the same policies that are tearing our communities apart....

just my nickels worth
