Hmmm really, don't republicans complain about big government and waste all the time here?

Sometimes the not a professor steps away from his purposeful trolling.  He used to be a reasonable moderate republican that was not super partisan all the time.  That changed.

Not sure what a clerk refusing to do their job has to do with big government - but it is a waste when they won't work!

I was moderate - still am
you on the other hand have gone completely radical
(I'm sure Fry even cringes now when you defend him!)
Sad you can't even accept when someone conceded your point! 

and the childish answers and behavior are amusing and annoying... 
name calling is something the bullies did in 4th grade -
Is not a professor supposed to mean something - or does it make you feel like a "MAN"?
 I have glasses you want to call me 4 eyes too?

Wrong!

The forum needs more people like DS to counter the incessant bullying and lies being perpetrated by the "conservative" radical right.

They've claimed the forum as their very own echo-chamber...and having DS fight for normalcy is refreshing.

Sadly he is now their target...so the tag-teaming and piling on can take a toll...and the divide and conquer thing isn't cool either.

So to DS...I salute you.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

Thanks for the morning laugh Fry!

"Incessant bullying and lies."

I think that line pretty well summarizes Ducksoup these days.

I couldn't have said it better myself!

Your allegations against DS are false.

DS garners multiple attacks from the right whenever he confronts those trolls.

You guys made a mess of this place and every once in a while somebody will attempt to clean it up.

Perhaps the attempt is futile and the only hope is to let it flounder...but I applaud the attempt nonetheless.

So stating a position is being a Troll to a Liberal?

An you believe the correct response to conservatives discussing their beliefs on a forum is to lie about what they say and believe, call names, and generally rant and rave?

Wow Fry - if that is really your position that is pretty telling - and explains why this forum is the way it is.

Truth is...it's not like you stated a position and left it at that.

Instead you guys either tag-team with personal attacks, post blatantly false info (which is often termed "opinions") or post the lies from a conservative site...such as fox news or the blaze.

Lately the charges coming from your side has been complete psychological projection.

It's even funnier watching you pick out two words to change the context to fit your narrative.

I was wondering if they ever found all those billions that they shipped to Iraq on a plane. 

The answer seems to be no.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/12/world/investigation-into-missing-iraqi-cash-ended-in-lebanon-bunker.html?_r=0

The office of the special inspector general for Iraq closed in 2013, and Mr. Bowen is now working in the private sector. Mr. Bowen thinks at least some of the money has been moved, and said it is impossible to say whether any of it is still in the bunker. He says he is still frustrated by the lack of cooperation he got from his own government in his efforts to pursue the missing cash. “We struggled to gain timely support from the interagency as we pursued this case,” Mr. Bowen said.

How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq. And watched it vanish

Oliver: "Of their money. Billions of dollars of their money, yeah I understand. I'm saying what difference does it make?"
(That one just for prof.  See, not even used out of context!)
Mr Bremer, whose disbanding of the Iraqi armed forces and de-Ba'athification programme have been blamed as contributing to the present chaos, told the committee: "I acknowledge that I made mistakes and that with the benefit of hindsight, I would have made some decisions differently. Our top priority was to get the economy moving again. The first step was to get money into the hands of the Iraqi people as quickly as possible."
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/feb/08/usa.iraq1

So, can something like this happen again?  Just put 12 to 14 billion dollars on a plane and hand it out in cash and basically no accounting?

I won't argue it sums me up "these days"

Won't argue that you have worked very hard with most posts to get there and also encourage your republican minions to do the same.

But, that I am there "these days" is because you have since you started.

No, you have repeated many times that I am "wrong even before I say anything," just because you make up what I think.

Whoa, hold the phones.  You stated your beliefs and it was not specifically meant to piss off or troll?  Please, show that post.  You are high in posts and I missed that one.

I'm curious how much of Lebanon was torn up looking for the billions of US dollars

I've seen stuff in movies on this in war zones - Probably from real life experiences it seems.

A good question - but since I'm not into military history - I'll defer to anyone who may be...    How does a conquered nation get monies to run?

I was wondering if they ever found all those billions that they shipped to Iraq on a plane. 

The answer seems to be no.
