    I love it. He first writes about how hateful political discourse has become, and then goes on to take shots at people on the other end of the political spectrum.

    Its really ironic that so many find today's genuinely conservative Republicans so extreme and reactionary, when their basic contention is that government has exceeded the limits the constitution placed on it.

    John F. Kennedy would be a right wing fanatic in today's political spectrum.

    What a joke. Ronald Reagan would be considered a "socialist" by the TPers if they really paid attention to what some of his policies were.

    Last I checked, JFK didn't think Social Security, the Federal Reserve and pretty much everything enacted by Congress in the last 150 years was "unconstitutional".

    He did want to return to a silver standard, and eliminate the Fed. He was killed within weeks of this proposal.

    Yes, thankfully because of FDR's court packing scheme the US Supreme Court changed their tune about social security not being unconstitutional.

    You can't keep going around debunking conspiracies mate, what will we have left to believe in? Some of us like the certainty that sense of every event being part of a greater plan brings. Go pluck the wings off butterflies or steal candy from babies if you want some kicks why don't you, hey!

    He was no doubt awed by Rick Perry's I.Q. and felt intimidated!
