Well, banning requires that he violates the rules. As it is, he seems to just basically be annoying us. I don't think the law around here will ban him for that. But the last time I checked, we didn't need no law to start up a good lynch mob. Anyone?

Srsly? It is so funny to hear people throw around the word "socialist" like they actually have some idea what it even means. As someone who actually identifies as a socialist/anarchist, Obama is doing nothing that really resembles true socialism; I wish he would! In any event, it is generally a bad idea throw around polticial "buzz words" without having a substanative sense of what they really entail.

Besides, what has "doomed the country" has been the unfettered, unchecked, unregulated run-amuck of pure capitalism over the last decade or so. Unless you want to see people starving the streets like North Korea, there is no way to deal with this mess without some form of government intervention (this so-called "socialism" you speak off). Wall St., Banks, and big corporations arn't going to fix this on their own. Leave it to them and you'll end up in an Enron situation. A few at top will have at all, and everyone else will get shafted (even worse than they already have).

But ask the 5% of the population with 95% of the wealth to fork over a few more dollars for the sake of the country, and that's socialism and a threat to the very fabric of the Union? My ass, fucking greedy SOB's. Send their kids instead, then maybe, just maybe, they'll see that blood red is more valuable than green.... or the nice inky black of oil. Those assholes should hang their heads in shame.

And the Republican govs have the nerve to refuse the stimulus for political gain? Fuck that. I've got news for you, these states have been fleecing the Union for years. They're welfare states. In 2005, for every dollar they collected in federal taxes, Lousiana got $1.78 back from the Feds, Mississippi got $2.02, South Carolina got $1.35, and even precious Alaska, our stalwart bastion of defense against flying Russian presidents entering our airspace, got $1.19 back. They've been collecting Federal stimulus for years, why stop now? Oh yeah.... politicial gain.

My home state of New York got a whopping $0.79 back in '05. Who's the tax and spend liberal now? Who's the blue state left-wing elitist giving your base a handout? Remind me again, which governor's states are dependent on the government?

Once those idiot red governors get their own spending wired tight and quit hanging off my tit, then they can talk to me about fiscal responsibility. Till then, those saprophytic governors can just thank me for their traditional annual bail-out on April 15th and shut the fuck up while they run their red states into the red ink with their red republican policies. Fucking fiscal responsiblity my ass, they've got no place telling anyone how to save money.

Here's your source, notice it's not Rush Limbaugh's site: The Tax Foundation - Federal Taxes Paid vs. Federal Spending Received by State, 1981-2005

EDIT: Glad to see you're back, it was getting boring here.
Amazing post. The hypocritical arguments being used by repubs are laughable.

Although, I would personally say that his complete lack of contributions to the actual SNOWBOARDING theme to our website does classify him as a troll which is actually a bannable offense.....

For now though, he is cheap entertainment. It`s a little like watching the handicapped; they are fun to laugh at even if it wrong to do so.....

Just don`t let his Limbaugh regurgitations get under your skin, the Conservatives have all but destroyed the country and most of America gets it now. It will be a long time before they have an ounce of credibility in American politics again.

What scares me is listening to republicans talk about how amazing Bobby Jindal is...this guy is a grade A idiot...
Honestly i hope the Republican party is stupid enough to try and put Palin on their ballot in 2012, but i doubt it. Minority people are the new hip thing with the republicans now that Obama won, so Jindal will probably be their nominee unless he seriously fucks up between now and then.

its not for "political gain" its because once that money runs out the states have to find a way to pay for all this new bs. youre on it bud. oh wait, government will continue to give us 'free' money and taxes wont rise and health care will be great, greater than it is now in terms of quality, and things will be great! yaaaa!
