But in general, its balance that is needed - and we don't need a bunch of extremists, on either side of the line.

I can understand I'llbombya's position of placing the right wingnuts into a category of profound uselessness.
They have beliefs without proof or logic supporting them from "This is a Christian Nation", "The past was better", "Evolution, says who?", "Education is best monitored by our community" and most perniciously, "We are not bigots."
They are humorous, even if unintentional but they drive the level of discourse and the topics we deal with.
They are corporate stooges who are knee-jerk in their precepts because BELIEF ALLOWS FOR NO COMPROMISE.
This is not to state I LIKE Demoncrats who are part and parcel of the same coin that gives us the Repulsicans. It's just obvious that the Ayn Randish posturing of the one is sickening. They have resorted to disruption of processes that had previously allowed for communing and compromise.
I understand that you want to keep your whole pie. I also know that the communities that protect and promote the creation of that confection must be funded. I also know that you can't wear more than one set of clothing, eat more than one meal or live in more than one house at a time. I know that government like any other organism can make demands that are onerous to the system and could absorb all the resources if allowed. Somewhere in the middle is the proper portion for the state and a reasonable return to the earner.
None of that reasonable approach is permitted by I'llbombya's SWORN enemies. I mean to tell you folks that if you compared the bloodiness of Bushwhacked to the a@@wholeness of the Nigerian, the Nigerian is better. Same goes for the economy and he does react to (Not saying he will do anything.) the excesses of the governments, which I did not see with the prior administration.
What the Repulsicans need to do is to stop being obstructionist just because they can. They are horrible people who swore to destroy this Presidency. They have shown no ability to rule, no ability to budget, no ability to increase their supporting base, no ability to see beyond their noses. They are not humane, kind, generous or concerned about the future. They act as if the rapture is a good thing. They believe in money. They believe in their corpseraist masters. They do not believe in us no matter how they spin it.
It's obvious that when you engage them they retreat to those beliefs and load their cannons with the spewing of intellectual lightweights, liars and professional provocateurs' BS.
Just so we get this right, if you want, I support Elizabeth Warren and Sanders politically. I am not concerned by their personal lives or personal morality, just that which is publicly expressed. I like some positions of Ron Paul. I think the Republican governors should be disposed of. I think the military is out of control. I think our Foreign Policy is too Machiavellian. I think we need to control our borders but then we should not cause the situation that brings CHILDREN to such desperation that they flee to a fence a thousand miles away. I think the world is complex and we must share the burden of figuring a path to a harmony which is inclusive and fair.
First, Kill all the Holy Men and then the lawyers.
Only kidding-let's dispossess them.
I could not have said it any better..

0bama is losing. Slowly ... inexorably ... his beliefs and community organizing are shifting back to what Is the American reality.
The garbage left in his wake will be his lasting legacy. The guy has achieved nothing.

You are a close minded fooll who disparages everything and anything conservatives believe in.
You are everything you claim to be against, a self righteous,non tolerant,close minded fool.
You show no respect for the right of others to think freely for themselves.You think you know it all and anyone thinks different is a idiot.Even here on this thread you cant restrain yourself from the juvenile name calling and the belittlement that has become synonymous with liberals who debate conservatives on the issues. Why so frustrated? Do you resort to this childish tactic as a smoke and mirrors effect because your argument wont stand under scrutiny?Of course you do.
You`re a f...ing hypocrite!
By the way I dont see color, just the facts.I gotta go but if you want to ever debate any core beliefs just let me know,if you can refrain from the name calling.

"“Our politics are dysfunctional… societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions,” said Obama, who repeatedly claims to be a moderate stymied by the GOP’s supposed obstructionism and radicalism."
I am sure that I am wrong, but please correct me if the above quote is not the justification for your outrageous claim.
Please do tell me where Obama mentions conservatives as "the greatest threat to the nation."

I can't find it anywhere either, I suspect the author of the article was just writing another hit piece for ad revenue.
