Yes...those...terrorist unions....
The SEIU recently terrorized an American citizen's home, with a 14 y/o kid hiding in a closet, with police escorts. PBO said he wanted to paint the country purple.

Who woulda thought this could happen in America?

Ok....and? He's criticizing people who say they support unions like the SEIU but dont actually do anything to help them.

And yeah, I did just watch the video. I dont grace WorldNutDaily with any real form of credibility.

Joe McCarthy? Are you serious? That's a great American keeping the country safe.
Much becomes clear.

No, McCarthy was not a great American or even a good one. His investigations never turned up anything solid and the commission amounted to little more than a glorified witch hunt , he repeatedly skirted the rules in what he did (as evidenced by the censure by the Watkins Committee), he considered himself above any sort of review and he used his position to attack his political enemies. He created an atmosphere of paranoia in our political system that lasts to this day. He has, probably more than any other individual, crippled our political atmosphere and created a destructive mentality that voters and politicians still subscribe to.

You should study up on the, "Pumpkin Papers", then get back with is.

Joe McCarthy's work exposed many communists within our government. He's a great American. Anyone that says otherwise is ****ed in the head and totally ignorant of the facts.

You're gonna dig up every Republican you can to support your argument, huh? What's President Reagan have to do with any of this?

He refuses to Honor those who died to give him and us our freedom.

He refuses to salute the flag or place his hand over his heart while the American national Anthem is being played.

He does however clutch at his crutch during the above.

He refuses to take responsibility for his inactions.

He plunges this Country into more debt than any other President before him.

Yes in my mind he is a home grown terrorist.

Your train of thought:

Obama supports the SEIU.
Some members of the SEIU did something that I think constitutes terrorism.
That means that Obama is a terrorist.

Using some simple substitution, we can arrive at this:

[X] supports the [Republican party]
Some members of the [Republican party] did something that I think constitutes [a crime]
That means that [X] is a [criminal]

Do you still think that that makes sense?

Vague and meaningless.

snopes.com: Barack Obama and the National Anthem

He refuses to take responsibility for his inactions.

False.

Absolute ridiculousness that has no place in civilized debate.

You may be a mod but you are singularly misinformed on his plunging this Country into greater debt than any other President.

With regards Snopes, is owned by a Leftwing nut, believe anything they say at your peril.

Regarding the other points, I judge a man by what he does as well as not only how he expresses himself but also by what he promises and fails to live up to those promises.

IMO the man is a Terrorist, in so far he has caused more damage to the US than many other Presidents.

You have your opinion, I have mine.

Read up on the Pumpkin Papers and learn.
Im familiar with them, can you explain what that has to do with McCarthy?

Prove it

So because they disagree with you, it's a bad source?

You have your opinion, I have mine.
We also have the right to call you out on your opinion and to laugh at you if that opinion turns out to be unfounded.

Hmm...I wonder about this. Domestic terrorist...is this the new communist of our era? I don't quite like these sorts of things as it sets the government up to take action it was otherwise barred from taking against its own citizens. I'll have to wait and see what sort of policies come out of this mindset, but I am heavily cautious and weary about what the government would like to do.

If you're going to use this method: literally every person on the planet is a terrorist because they at some point said something nice about a group which has at one point had at least one member do something bad.

What's your favorite football team? Chances are one of their players has committed a felony. Therefore, you're a criminal.
