"It doesn't matter".

"Who cares, they are all the same."

*chuckle*

I always wondered what happened to "Hope and change", now I know.

Pelosi's face is one of the best friends the Republican Party has. A shame to think of it that way, but the fact remains.

Hope and Change are still around. They just moved to the late shift at the strip club.

Hope and Change = Hindering and corruption.

As for the discussion about Pelosi. Even her own party has grown tired of her and is looking into replacing her as minority leader.

As I said, in a few years we'll see if there is a noticable difference. From Bush to Obama there really wasn't. People fixate on "Obama phones" but fail to realize that the program was started under Reagan and that Obama just happened to walk in when cellular went cheap and more common than home phone "lifelines" - and "Obamacare" - which Romney would not have fought because, after all, he created and implimented it in his own state when he was Governor.

Exactly, Heff.

There is very little difference between the Dems and Reps. They both continue down the same path.

With examples such as what you highlighted, one does have to wonder if the Left really is the socialist commies they are said to be. Seems to me that they are toeing the Republican line as far as policy. Perhaps we should call them "Republican-lite".

That's what happens when you have two parties who are equally complicit in trying to destroy the nation and the world through their bull# domestic and international policies

Here's the trap, however.

Bush and Obama are progressives. They wanted bigger more intrusive government and they got bigger more intrusive government.

NDAA
Patriot Act
DHS
TSA
Obamacare
Now an Ebola muck-up.

But you can't say all ideologies are the same, just because 2 morons from different parties hold the same ideology.

I could jump up and down and scream "Told you so!" (and I often do)

But. . . .

That doesn't change the fact that we are knowingly voting these idiots into office!

There is a difference in ideologies.
There is a difference in politicians.

We just have to find them because the media isn't going to help us.

We have to do the media's job now.

We have to expose the truth, uncover the lies, and illuminate the bullspit.

OH, MY!
, Watch those Liberals Heads Explode,,,,,

Let the Whining and Crying Begin

Because as of this morning,,,, The Huff is Reporting,,,,,,,32% chance that Democrats will keep control of the Senate.
And,,,,, 68% chance that Republicans will take control of the Senate.
What's That I Hear?

Dem's are Crying
What does it matter you often ask,,,, remember H. Reid change the Rules last year to fit his Agenda.


WASHINGTON -- One of the most unpredictable outcomes of a GOP takeover of the Senate, which is looking likely, is the fate of President Barack Obama's judicial nominees.

Republicans, who have been systematically delaying action on nominees all year, would have the ability to block any of Obama's judicial picks in his final two years in office. As the majority, they would control when, or if, his nominees get voted out of the Judiciary Committee and whether they get confirmed on the floor.

There's plenty of residual anger among Republicans over Democrats changing filibuster rules last year, and that anger could well translate into payback. In response to GOP obstruction of Obama's D.C. Circuit Court nominees, Democrats changed the Senate rules last fall so it only takes a simple majority, instead of 60 votes, to advance most nominees. The effect has been Democrats confirming piles of Obama's judicial nominees, with Republicans fuming about being cut out of the process.

Republicans have so far retaliated by using procedural maneuvers to delay votes on nearly every nominee. But they've also warned that Democrats will rue their decision once they end up in the minority.

"I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, you’ll regret this," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said as Democrats pushed through the change in rules. "And you may regret it a lot sooner than you think."

H. Reid Will Be Crying Too

I don't think it will matter much since both parties serve the same corporate masters, but maybe they can at least slow down the damage Obama is doing to our country. Maybe.


Stop the bleeding I say. I can also hear a song in F#
saying we got another thing comin'.

Maybe the RINOs can go on a KoolAid fast and start the
peachy ball in the House too. But I've been accused of
unrealistic expectations before.

The best potential benefit to all this changing hands
now would be to get rid of Harry Reid's Dead Letter
Room of a desk-- with all the decent bills on it.

Won't find them amongst the Republitards or Democraps.... But don't you worry your party lining head... Mericans will keep looking within those two camps. Yes, they are that naive

I'm sure you will disagree, but they are far from being progressives. Fascist Neocons......yup.

Progressives are anti-war, pro-social responsibility, fight on equality issues and many other things that these politicians are not working for.

What we have is a nice little marriage between politics and corporate power that continues to push for the military-industrial-banking complex that most progressives are against.

Where would you suggest looking?

Because I see progressives (doesn't matter what party) and libertarians (maybe even Tea Party-types).

The progressives are running the show and calling akll the shots.
They control the media
They control DC
They control the message.

It's either bow down to your progressive overlords, or storm the Bastille.

How are your knees feeling?

You can put a piece of poo in a shiny gold box, but that piece of poo will remain a piece of poo.

Progressives have begun to destroy the country.

They won't stop until they are defeated or America is.

Play with definitions all day long.

It doesn't change their intent.

You can't put up a very good fight if you don't know who you're fighting against.

I don't see progressives starting wars. I don't see progressives robbing the country blind.

Go ahead and watch the progressives. I'll keep my eye on the fascists in DC.

They are one and the same.

Too many people are getting tied up with definitions.

It doesn't matter WHAT you call the person;

If they are subverting the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
If they are removing freedoms or imposing laws that restrict freedoms
If their policies are against US interests and are for foreign interests

Then they are progressives.

Or Neocons (if you want)
Or fascists (if you want)

Call them peanut butter sandwiches for all I care.

If Republicans get the Senate and keep the House congress will pass as much inane sh*t as it can in order to force the president to veto and make him look like the real obstructionist.


Since the House has passed over 300 bills which were sent to the Senate but were never allowed to reach the floor thanks to Harry Reid then yeah, that's about right. Always good to shine a spotlight on the obstructionists whether it's Reid or Obama.


Harry Reid has done his part for sure, but he's not a member of the party that runs on a platform of trying to make government as dysfunctional as possible.

I never used to care about who ever was in power or who was representing me.

Political ideologies was a big bore and a *yawn* to me for so many years.

I didn't start caring until it started affecting me.

Take away my freedoms, impose laws that restrict my freedoms, infringe on my freedoms, tax me to the point where I have nothing else and then I begin to effing notice the morons in office.

Don't care what anyone "defines" themselves as.

Definitions are all bullspit anymore anyway because too many people are trying to put lipstick on a pig and say how good real socialism is, not the bad definition of socialism, or how great progressives are but republicans who used to be democrats who used to be republicans who used to be democrats who used to be whigs who used to be tory's are really the bad people.

I think this falls into the basket of don't count your chickens until the eggs hatch.

If the Republicans control both houses then they have 2 years to get something done.


If the Republicans control both houses they're going to have to get past a presidential veto. Obama hasn't followed through on a single major promise he's made. Do you think he's suddenly going to follow through on the idea of cooperation and bipartisanship?
