This Occupying Empire is not merely the military Empire but the entire integrated corporate/­financial/­militarist Empire of cancer that is the seminal cause of all our 'symptom problems' such as; increasing imperialis­t wars abroad, vast economic inequality at home, domestic spying and lying, environmen­tal destructio­n, etc. etc. Best luck and love to Occupy Empire.

All they have to do is join the Party and participate. We don't care if they show up bejeweled or in rags. After all, they are people are they not? Is that not the only thing that really matters?

Yeah, all ONE of them. Guess you think if people don't agree with you, they have no right to speak "for Conservatives," as if YOU personally are the mouthpiece of American Conservatism, and all others must bow to your opinions. Most people look for what's right and workable, regardless of whether its source is a conservative or a liberal or somebody with another political philosophy, and we feel no personal need to slam either side as bad people the way you do. "Secondly, if I can irritate you, then my day is complete." ~~~~~ You must have a very sad life if your day is completed by "irritating" somebody. However, you don't so much irritate me as disgust and sadden me with your extremism and willingness to belittle others. “Mike, first of all, I can tell by your silly comments that you cannot speak for conservatives.” ~~~~~~~ My silly comments?

Secondly, if I can irritate you, then my day is complete. Finally, I really don't give a rats arse about how you feel. If the truth hurts and you can't take it, well that sort of falls i to the category of "too bad". Your whiney attack simply reinforces my point about you liberals.
