    Do you ever feel like you are living in a “Bizarro World”? That is how I feel much of the time. I look around and it seems as though some form of mass psychosis has descended on most of the population. Things that would have had Americans angrily marching in the streets a generation or two ago are now just accepted as “normal” by the “sheeple” that populate this nation.

    If the talking heads that endlessly spew nonsense at us through our televisions tell us to believe something, no matter how absurd it is, most people just go along with it. Before we had televisions and radios and computers and movies and the Internet, people actually had to do the hard work of thinking for themselves. But now we are all plugged into this giant “matrix” that tells us what to think, what to believe and how to feel about things. And unfortunately, the people that are telling us what to think and believe are delusional themselves. The blind are leading the blind, and as a result our nation is coming apart at the seams all around us.

    The following are 19 signs that you live in a country that has gone completely insane…

    And when someone tries to do something about the problems you whine, complain, start a thread, and call everybody RHINO's!

    That's because the only solutions you RHINOCONS have to offer is less freedom and liberty for Americans and more death, destruction and chaos for everyone else. And of coarse a bigger more intrusive government acting outside of it's constitutional authority to help institute your "solutions".

    And then when your "solutions" fail you demand we give more power and control to the government and throw more money at the problems to continue and expand the failed policies!

    That is bull dung poncho and you know it. You have never seen me indicate that I am for big Federal government.

    Why is it I never see you complaining about Obama's usurpation of power? Are you Obama lover is disguise? If you did a little hypocritical preaching along with your nonsensical threads I would think you were Zaac's clone!

    So you aren't in favor of continuing the "war on drugs"?

    Or the "war on terrorism"?

    Or continuing the failed nation building experiment in Iraq?

    You aren't in favor of the patriot act(s)? Or Bush's DHS which doubled the size and scope of government?

    All those need an ever bigger and more intrusive government to keep them going.

    Yeah you're in favor of these big government controls. You're a "law and order conservative" you love big government to "keep you safe". You don't love it for the same reasons the "liberals" do but you love it just the same.

    I've complained about Obama's usurpations here probably more than even you have. You were probably so busy trying to deny, cover up, poo poo and gloss over Bush's usurpations that you didn't notice.

    I point out he RHINOCON'S blatant hypocrisy as often as I can. SEE THIS. And y'all make it sooo easy!

    What war?

    By all means!

    Iraq was a big mistake!

    Not all of it!

    That is more bull dung! The DHS was formed by combining existing government agencies and adding the TSA. Saying it doubled the size of the Federal Government is juvenile Bull Dung or baby Buffalo Chips!

    Not really. That is simply an excuse. I would start trimming the Federal Government by eliminating the Dept. of Ed, the IRS, the EPA and continue from there.

    Bull Dung!

    You got that right. But being an anarchist or a leftist in disguise that bothers you!

    Bull Dung

    Are you serious?

    I haven't noticed and the rest is Bull Dung or Buffalo Chips!

    It is Neocon not RHINOCON. A Rhino is a big wild animal with a horn running wildly around Africa sort of like poncho on the Baptist Board. I would also point out that RINOCON is self contradictory. Republican In Name Only does not a Conservative make.

    Take up your problem with the originator of the thread.


    You may or may not be a libertarian, I don't know. Being philosophically a Conservative I have some libertarian leanings but they are under control.

    You may or may not be a radical leftist posing as a libertarian. I don't know and your wild conspiracy theories may simply be an excuse to bash Conservatives, sort of like Zaac bashing Conservatives and Republicans.

    You may be an anarchist masquerading as a libertarian, I don't know!

    Anyhow lio ole ponch bids you farewell.

    The war you won't call a war that we waste billions on every year to make a few conservatives feel like they're helping their fellow man.

    Which is your favorite part, the one where Washington funds and arms them or blows them up along with anyone else in the vicinity?

    Correction Iraq was a big con job. A few fat cats made lot's of money and millions of people suffered for it.

    But don't hold Bush accountable cuz he's a great guy and one of us!

    Which parts don't you like?

    Big government gets bigger

    Bush Administration Adds $4 Trillion To National Debt That's before the 2 + trillion $ price tag for the failed Iraq experiment is figured in.

    During his eight years in office, President Bush oversaw a large increase in government spending. In fact, President Bush increased government spending more than any of the six presidents preceding him, including LBJ. In his last term in office, President Bush increased discretionary outlays by an estimated 48.6 percent.

    During his eight years in office, President Bush spent almost twice as much as his predecessor, President Clinton. Adjusted for inflation, in eight years, President Clinton increased the federal budget by 12.5 percent. In eight years, President Bush increased it by a whopping 53 percent.

    http://mercatus.org/publication/spending-under-president-george-w-bush

    The numbers don't lie.

    Yes really. The failed "war on drugs" costs billions, all our wars and interventions (79 at last count) costs an estimated nobody knows how many trillions because they still haven't found the three trillion dollars that Donald Rumsfeld admitted came up missing from the Pentagon on 9/10/2001. Correction. Rumsfeld admitted 2.1 trillion was missing from the Pentagon on 9/10/2001. It was later announced that another trillion couldn't be found or accounted for.

    Google it. This stuff isn't free so how do conservatives get the money to run all this? Corporatism and socialism. They coerce the money out of us to give to their campaign donors in the form of military contracts. First they run to a private bank that creates money from thin air to get a loan at interest to pay for it so they won't have to raise taxes directly and turn everyone into anti war freedom loving tax payers.

    What else can parasites do besides live off the host until it dies? It's the nature of the parasite.

    You still sore because you can't find that evidence to support your claims?

    See that? The mere thought of people enjoying their individual liberty scares you so much you had to replace the word freedom with "anarchy".

    No B-D about it. You would feel naked and afraid if you didn't have the police state and the biggest rate of incarceration on the planet to make you feel safe. In the "land of the free" no less!

    Yeah. Go look in the archives. Just click on the button that says "find all threads Poncho started" Easy enough.

    I'm not surprised. I'm amazed you had time to notice anything with all that looking for non existent evidence to support your claim of "Russian aggression". Maybe you should send your monkey to look for it, he might have better luck.

    No it's RHINOCON. A paranoid war mongering creature that has camouflaged itself to look like a republican that wants to control every country on the planet by guile, coercion or force and put the taxpayer on the hook for it all when things don't turn out the way they predicted. But that doesn't stop the raging RHINOCON oh no sir. Failure doesn't slow them down at all. One failure, two failures, three failures what's the solution? More meddling, more interventions, more war. More of the same things that led to the failure of the last things.

    I did. He referred me back to you.

    I reckon I am whatever you want to make me out to be to justify your own need to stay a prisoner in the false left vs right paradigm. In my paradigm it's liberty vs tyranny. In your paradigm you have to make tyranny from your team sound like salvation and the tyranny from the other side like tyranny. I don't have that problem.

    A tyrant is tyrant no matter which party he belongs to.

    You say this after you spread those conspiracy theories about "Russian Aggression" and "Putin stole Ukraine"?

    At least my theories come with some facts and evidence to support them. Whether you chose to accept it as evidence or not makes no difference.

    You spin them with NO PROOF at all

    Yeah I still believe in America and everything it was founded on. If that makes me a radical what does that make you for thinking I'm a radical?

    Tell him to bring back that evidence you can't find.

    As much as you mention my name, I'd swear we were dating. :laugh: And I don't bash conservatives and Republicans. I point out the hypocrisy of folks who call themselves conservatives when they are really saying they are politically conservative but spiritually liberal.:thumbs:

    Most of the time yall aren't even politically conservative. If the old heads of the GOP say it and Hannity and Rush repeat it, yall just fall in line and make it the new gospel.

    And they are sitting back going:

    What happened OR, did the monkey break a string?

    Or are you just upset that you still can't find any evidence to support your Russian conspiracy theories?
