Oh, you haven't been here long enough to realize that's what we do.

Then you got me doing it, Steve. :wink:

In other topics: The Trapdoor. Old UK claymation show for children and adults that played with Victorian Horror tropes along with some humor. I recommend it highly, if not only for the parody of the creepy introduction in the style of the immortal Vincent Price.

Vincent Price actually did do a kid's show years back: The Hilarious House of Frightenstein which, unfortunately, does not hold up all that well today. He also did The Thirteen Ghosts of Scooby Doo which holds up even less.

My point to the blinkered Amperion, there is a vast history of conservative support for the anti-war, anti-imperialist ideal. Here's a good book on it:

http://www.amazon.com/Aint-America-Cons ... 0805082441

The media keeps these people off as well. The shuck is that the right are war mongers, the left are pansies. The real deal is far more complex. War is illegal, immoral and usually works in the wrong direction. The War On Terror has created more terrorism. It's really a war on common sense.

The Think Progress story is pretty clear proving that foreign money is in the till. Sure, John Podesta is associated with it, but our blogs tend to be independent of power, or try to be.

Let's hope that's always true. :wink:

We should be thankful that the current crop of Republicans are corrupt. An uncorrupted man of the people, now that's dangerous.

Think Hitler.

When I swindle the crooks playing the cheap fiddle to us all from their Prime Minister and Bank seats out of their money. Either that or I could try some hard work. I'm thinking of a physical job. Mostly carrying stuff or something like that (can't stand heights, so construction sites are right out). Whichever is more fruitful and/or satisfying. :wink:

Frank, re: your so-tutored advisement, "Rob, we have an corporate oligarch. They run the world."

I don't think you'll ever get this: I used that line a billion times in my posts, and you do this sort of thing a lot to readers, provoking the old retort, "NO kiddin'!"

You talk to people around here as if you're enlightening them on the obvious.

Not that you'll ever get it. (This is what happens on the occasions I accidentally glance at your posts)

You can't get enough of me or my posts Pookie-bear.

I just never know about you. Your ideas are all over the place. We should rename you the mental ping-pong ball.

Frank

If you think Robo is all over the place, you may want to read your own posts for the past few years. You are just as bad if not worse than he is at times. You may have the core values solid, but the way you let us know about them is just as "blowing in the wind" as his are.

Frank, Rob

A quick link for both of you:

How I interpret your arguments. Reminds me of a more modern Abbot and Costello.

No offense meant, by-the-by.
