Do you really want to get your definition of "torture" from a man whose definition of "patriotism" is "start a war that will earn my company 38 billion dollars, and while you're at it, don't fund it, just put it on our China credit card"?

Posted on 12/11/14 at 02:47 pm in response to John Kline pushes for cuts to union pensions

So, is he giving up his own pension and health care as a gesture of good faith? What, no? Well then, that's a Republican for you. Always ready to help others make sacrifices for the good of all.

Yes, it's shameful that so few people voted. On the other hand, those who DIDN'T vote have lost their right to bitch about the election results. Nobody wants to hear it from someone who didn't even try.

Posted on 11/21/14 at 05:53 pm in response to Obama’s immigration maneuver: This isn’t how it’s supposed to work

Don't you ever get tired of manufactured outrage? The legitimate news media have already picked up that FIVE of the last REPUBLICAN presidents also acted unilaterally, without congressional action, on immigration. Yes, all the way back to Richard Nixon. Or is it somehow worse because this time it's President Obama? Yup, that must be it. IARIYAR.

Goodness, all those people at football games, wearing giant foam Gang Signs on their hands! Shocking, fall of civilization, conspiracy, o the horror, rant rant rant. There. Now I have contributed to the meaningful discussion here.

Hmm, wasn't it the Republicans who were trying to force a judge on us who'd had multiple DUI convictions, and got in trouble for resisting arrest on her latest? I don't recall the Democrats doing anything that outrageous.

I have no problem at all with my tax money going to pay for free contraception. As a matter of fact, I'd willingly pay more for that. Much more prudent than waiting and then paying to feed, house, supervise and educate unwanted children at public expense. ALL babies should be WANTED.

I nominate the name EEA party. For "Embarrassed Enough Already." Anyone but Emmer, who makes Bachmann seem almost reasonable.

In her case, "free speech" is just the inevitable devolution of "talk is cheap." I don't think the impartiality of a judge would rest well on her.

Put a bat house on the north side of your own house, up under the eaves! Put a couple of Purple Martin birdhouses on your property! Bats and Purple Martins eat more mosquitos than you can imagine. Also, never kill a dragonfly - another mosquito predator. Remember we have friends out there who are on OUR side.
