That pretty much nailed it. What a pathetic, sad world we would live in if the me me, mine mine people like you were running it. Money has nothing to do with responsibility. People that work multiple jobs to get by are responsible. They are more responsible than those trust fund wonders that have had it handed to them. So making a connection between wealth and responsibility is just shows blatant ignorance ...(full comment)
First you have to get elected. You will not get elected on a platform that seeks to undo abortion or gay marriage period. if you want to put your social agenda ahead of what most folks care about, you will not win any elections.
I am all about fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets, and getting rid of programs that do not work. And I am all about small government.
President Obama got elected the first time because he claimed he was a centralist, would bring folks together etc. he lied. He got elected the second time because he spent 4 years convincing folks that the Reps would undo the abortion and gay marriage laws. He also won on the idea that business is the enemy, and folks were not informed enough to realize what his policies would do economy wise. He had them focused on social issues like a laser. That is how he was able to win yet again, even with his dismal record.
If the Reps do not drop their social agenda, they will go down in flames yet again. The Dems want the Reps to focus on abortion, gay marriage and religion. That way the economy, jobs and this President's poor record is ignored.
And the Reps are awful about getting their message out to the youth and what they will be paying for. ...(full comment)
We seem to be a nation that is focused on stupid. If the Reps would like to lose again, running on social issues is the way to go. That is how President Obama got elected. He focused on social issues to take attention away from what is important. War on Women, Uneven Playing Field and Greedy Business. Reps walk right back into their trap if they focus on abortion and gay marriage. That reaffirms that they are out of touch. They did the same thing with trying to repeal the ACA over and over.
Most Americans wants jobs, security and a business climate where folks can succeed. Focusing on abortion and gay marriage is a recipe for disaster.
That is the game plan used to get President Obama reelected. It worked. If the Reps go down that road again they have learned nothing.
Rand Paul is the only candidate who is making sense. If you ran for President before on a social agenda and lost, doing it again is pretty darn stupid. ...(full comment)
The folks on here do not dispute what is said by the opposing party. They ignore every statement posted. Not all, but most.
It is a lot easier to name call than to actually address the issues.
I still have not figure out if folks are uninformed or they do not want to deal with the facts. ...(full comment)
Itsa - now that is troll-like behavior at it's worse. Clearly, your intention is to insult and rile up the liberal readers of this forum, just for the purpose of riling them up. You know as well as I that saying "most progressives" (or "most conservatives") behave in any particular way is going to to be patently false. Personally, this liberal has never committed adultery, has always honored his parents, and has never stolen. (Ok, one pair of jeans from a clothesline on a dare by a fellow teen 40 years ago.) Beyond that, please show me one person who has never lied and never coveted, even a little bit. On the other hand the first 5 commandments, which basically outline how to be a good Jew (and co-opted later by Christians), don't really apply to me, as I am neither Jewish nor Christian. - So, for the original poster in this thread - no, we all don't need to be reaquinted with and practice Christianity. Some of us are doing just fine without it. ...(full comment)
Love Jon Stewart's line, Fox takes grandma's inbox and says it out loud as news. The folks on here recite obscure items on here as fact, and it is not easy to know where they get them. ...(full comment)
Lets take a look at Saint Lois.
As Head of the FEC Enforcement Office she went after the Christian Coalition
Went after Durbins opponent in the race is Illinois. Said do not run and we will drop the case.
Ignored a fundraiser for Al Gore who was accused of illegal fundraising.
Then moved on to the IRS and did her magic.
Is it any wonder she does not want to testify?
It's impossible to say which one is worst. There are way too many bad ones to list. I've never seen such a bad combination of potholes and frost heaves around here! But let's see.... Bog Road is bad year-round, and as for Graham Road, better keep it down to 10 MPH if you don't want to damage your car. ...(full comment)
No doubt about it! The pot holes are very bad all over the City. One thing that would help everyone, if folks would slow down and not drive the side roads as they do the interstate. I am shocked how fast they drive. Must be nice to have lots of money to realign your vehicle's front end or replace shocks. I am just waiting to see someone go airborne when they speed over one of these humps.
Cheer up! Spring is coming and soon the pot holes will be just a distant memory. ...(full comment)
Promised the Terry Family he would seek justice for the death of their son.
He did that by praising Holder for turning over 7,000 of the 70,000 documents requested by the hearing committee on Fast & Furious.
Never asked one question about Benghazi, spent his time attacking the Reps and saying it was another witch hunt.
He was outed by the Founder of True The Vote when she testified at the IRS hearings, he sent her 3 harassing letters. After she outed him, he want on National TV and called her a racist.
Yeah this is a saint who seeks the truth. ...(full comment)
A new poll shows Americans believe the IRS scandal is the most important issue (CBS)... Obama administration ‘will hold up every firewall they can’ to block IRS investigation. ... She wants immunity... NOT A SMIDGEON OF CORRUPTION will be the lie of the year for 2014. It is truly sad when the democrat president of the US receives that dubious honor ...(full comment)
