I'm sure they've made fun of Ron Paul at some stage for being batshit insane and retarded...
I really don't understand how tea-party type people let Ryan get away with his big spending conservatism record.
Medicare Part D, every Bush II spending plan and tax cut, etc. etc.
Ofcourse Ryan and his fellow anachrists will be completely sheltered from all of this. They have their special commie healthcare, their kickbacks and fixed salaries, and live in federally supported mansions and houses. But everyone else? They can go fuck themselves.
That's Ryan's budget outline: the "I've got mine; you can go fuck yourself!" budget.
Actually, all I meant to say was that the "at least he's doing something" comparison with Brevik was a false one, because in the first case we have general agreement that the USA needs a budget, while there is no general agreement that there is an "islamic threat."
Ryan is proposing a solution to a problem we are all asking for solutions to.
The other is proposing a problem we all disagree even exists...and I guess some kind of insane vigilante "solution."
That's not to say that Ryan's joke of a proposal is even romotely sane, but comparing it to Brevik is both Apples to Oranges and (thankfully) still an insult to the caliber of people who end up in congress. We have dumb politicians but they are not racist vigilante dumb.
Still, I'm reminded of a quote from some late night eve online teamspeak that has stuck with me over the years. "Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, and most of them stink." That advice clearly extends to budgetary opinions.

This looks like a plant. Put there for some people get all frothy over so that the Republicans can then turn round and accuse the Democrats of false accusations.
The reality is that Ryan was no more or less a crook at the time as many of his fellow congressmen. Some were more into it than others, some not at all. Naturally Ryan did a lot of trading in bank stock that year, but in the end, it simply wasn't illegal to do insider trading on non-public information at the time.
At any rate, you don't have to look for inside dealing stories to figure out what a fraud Ryan is: just look at his tax plan and his voting record and you should know enough. This is just a distraction ...
