Are you kidding me !? Are you pulling my leg! ? Hillary Clinton the heroine !!!!

My virago says "Keep your friends close but your enemies go down in a close up".


Enter the little cinder girl'
(wearing the wings DaVinci made to the masque, her wicked stepmother the Baroness deGent tearing off one) and the Prince . . .

" Madam YOU are on dangerous grounds !"

"Her name is Danielle de Barbarack and she has been a servant in my manor for quite some time.
Bow before royalty you insolent fraud! "

"Nicole, is that true? Nicole ? " (hanging her head)

"What she says is true. The Contesse Nicole de Lancret was my mother."

"You lied. You're just like the others ! (Turning away his love for her and his back)

" I only lied to you to a save a slave's life. Henry, no !".

" Do not address my so informally madam"....says the royalty of France.

Running away, she loses her glass slipper.... and so the BOUCHES du RHONE flood gates are open

I think that for the majority of the citizens of the United States that homosexuality and abortion are already gone. The new "social" issue is marijuana. I just don't understand legalizing marijuana when smoking is not good for one's health.

It's not for you or I - or the gummint - to determine how someone else decides to look after their own health. That sounds more like a personal problem to me.

That would be THEIR decision, not ours.

The gutting of the right to choose

The gutting of Obamacare

Just wanted to point out that Obamacare was the gutting of the right to choose. But this ...

It’s so bad that the only one who can rescue the world from the madmen of the GOP is Hillary Clinton? The new Heroine…

Had me laughing out loud. Thanks for making my night.

Me too - this is, apparently, the same Hillary who asserts that citizenship is a privilege, not a right...

Unless there is some other "Hillary"?

Funny thing....
People don't like the ACA..... and many provisions haven't even been implemented yet.... the ones that will really piss people off.

Does anyone think that the Republicans will do anything about it now???

I don't.

I don't either.

If they want us to believe there is some difference between the two parties, they should show us - start by disassembling that travesty and chucking it in the bin.

Until they first do that, there's not much else they can point to in order to convince me. Anything else is just frilly crap on the same old dress.

the same way that the republicans seem to be blind when it comes to the mess bush left for obama to clean up??

Now that he's in a "lame duck" presidency, do you think there's a chance that he'll finally get started on that cleanup anytime soon? So far, all he's done has been to stomp across the same floor in muddy jackboots, which is a funny way to clean a mess up.

If they had a filibuster proof congress they could have passed a true national health care bill---single payer.

I've often wondered, but never gotten a satisfactory answer for, just what is "single payer" Newspeak for? Who, exactly, is this "single payer" who would be paying everyone's bills?

The fact is they didn’t have a filibuster proof because of the 60 vote rule in the Senate

THE ACA barley passed and Obama used up all his political capital with the passing of the ACA

Barely passing even when they had a clear majority really SHOULD have been their sign, now shouldn't it?

The greedy selfish country don't even want this flimsy ACA act that they ignorantly call socialism

You're right, here - it's fascism, not socialism.

Passed by fascists, apparently.

No matter - they are ALL collectivists, fascist and socialist alike, and tend to wash each other's backs.

All hail the kollektive!

I can't wait, honestly ... the more I read here, the more excited I get!

Republicans! Please ...

1. Repeal Obamacare ... time to put up or shut up Republicans ... do it! Go!

Whomever can do that - whether Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Socialist, Communist, or Baathist will have my vote and support for the rest of the years I have left on this rockball. I will work tirelessly for their cause for the rest of my days.

2. Impeach the President --- Americans do love an impeachment party ... just ask Bill Clinton!

No longer worth the effort. I question whether it ever WAS worth the effort - wouldn't that have just put Biden in the driver's seat? I don't see any gain there.

3. Have more Benghazi Investigations, because hey, Lucky 13 just aren't enough!

Well, if they had ONE, which actually, you know, investigated something, that might be sufficient.

3. Ignore immigration reform --- yep, win those Latino hearts and minds, Redstate guys and gals, yessir!

I've already won the hearts and minds of Latinos who know me. Talked to some just the other day as a matter of fact who were concerned that I had fallen off the planet. I can tell you, right now, that any actual reform of immigration is not going to go over well with the Latinos I know. One is trying to figure out a way to get her cousin here, and closing the borders - i.e. actual reform as opposed to Newspeak "reform", would limit her options there. We're still exploring other routes to make it happen, though. The prospects are promising for a legal immigration, so long as no one mucks it up with any actual reform.

4. Return enforced prayer to schools, heck, why stop there, go ahead and make Christianity the official religion of the USA!

Did you go to a parochial school or something? I'm older than dirt, went to school many moons ago in the "bad old days", and never, EVER, witnessed any "enforced prayer" in any of the schools I attended. Come to think of it, I never witnessed an enforced Pledge of Allegiance, either. I had a very good friend (dead now, for many years) who never compromised on his refusal, and nothing was ever done to compel him. Ever.

5. Try to reverse marriage equality, a bit harder but, hey, you guys have promises to keep to the good folk back home.


What have the Feds, Congress in particular, got to do with that?

6. ...and please don't stop with the ACA, privatize Social Security, and do away with Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare and Food Stamps ... because, hey, people don't need to eat or go to the doctor, at least, not the "wrong kind of people" amirite?

Ah. I see. It's just sour grapes over an erroneous perception that a mythical "other side" has won something. I ate and went to the doctor (when I wanted to, which was not very often at all) for years and years without Food Stamps, Welfare, Medicaid, Medicare, etc. I would kinda like to see Social Security abolished, rather than privatized, since it ain't what it was sold as way back when, and I, at least, have been assured by the Feds that I will never, ever, live long enough to see a single thin dime of what I paid into my account, not if I live to be a thousand years old - which ain't very likely. I can't think of any good reason I should keep paying into an account that I'll never be able to get anything out of, but the feds see things differently... since it's them benefiting from MY work in the matter.

That's just me, though - you may be able to collect on it for centuries.

So, Anti-Science because they want to reign in funding crap...

The correct term is "anti-Govt-funded-programs-related-to-science".

I'd throw in "the arts", too.

I want my government, you know, governing... not handing out cash to other folks whose AREN'T governing...

Science is the provenance of scientists, not politicians. Art is the provenance of artists, not politicians.

Similarly, I wouldn't want Stephen J. Gould or Paul Gauguin governing, either.

They have different strengths other than politics.

Republicans will try yet again to shut women down. Proof is all over google. Just search "Bills introduced by republicans regarding women's health."

I was dumb enough to actually do that, thinking there might be something I've missed.

I got this.

It's a lot of fooferaw about an illusionary "war on women", but not a scrap in sight about anything to do with any actual women's health. It has a tangential linkage, in that what most of the bills seem to be about are actually the health of fetuses, not women. More precisely, the bills seem to be concerned with the legitimacy of making fetuses very UNHEALTHY, to the point that it kills them.

Protip: Keep your knees firmly together so as not to produce any fetuses, and you won't have to worry whether you'll be able to kill the little bugger off before it kills YOU. In other words, if you think that young-un might kill you, it might be better to keep it from being a possibility to begin with.

Anything else is just debating infanticide and trying to mask it as "women's health".

More of that "Newspeak" I've been mentioning along through the thread...

No. What you're looking at is gridlock.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Less govt. intrusion, simply because they can't/won't cooperate long enough to do anything excessively stupid...

Yep. Gridlock for the win.



If they're not going to try to make things any better, at least keep them from making things any worse!

Late to the party - you forgot

More military spending in more wars.

No rational immigration policy reform.

And forgot the big one - more TPP and ATP trade agreements making Corporations sovereign over the world.

No accountability for any corporate action (We the People will pay all their expenses and the 2% will reap all the gain)

But I won't vote for Hillary because I think she'd be just the same.

But, I guess, it is what a whopping 17% of the electorate want (30% turned out; 55% voted rep (most races were close) with 45% dem.. So about 17% of the population voted for these loud mouthed bullies). Who am I to argue with such a huge majority (17%) of the 'American' people.

Indeed. I feel the same way about the 32.6% of eligible voters that put Obama into office back in 2008.

All that matters is who bothers showing up. If your side didn't care enough to vote, that's not the GOP's fault.

The election is a visceral reaction to Obama and his ISIS policy, Immigration policy and his overall lack of assertiveness in an era of uncertainty

Obama gives off an image of an uncertain man befuddled by the job and has been too aloof and who is out of ideas, so his base leaves him.

In the light of ISIS he shrinks

Just that alone could have helped stem the tide that swept this geek away

Obama is the incredible shrinking president.

Some of you old timers recall that 50’s B movie “The Incredible Shrinking man”

That’s Obama

I was always made curious by libertarians. Not so much your credo. But why, if you dislike being a member of a connective society, do you feel that those of us who DO like society, with all of its constraints and advocations, need to think you are paragons of anything but simple (in so many ways) greed.
By definition you need to leave, we do not need to adjust to you. If you insist on this then you are not Libertarians, just Anarchists with a Narcissistic bent.

When will you figure this out? It's like religionists and atheists, stop trying to prove yourself worthy, just go away, please. We'll all be happier and much less stressed.

Libertarians seem to not much care who you "connect" with, or how you make the connections for your "connected society". They just seem to take issue with you forcing them into YOUR connections, and have no interest in forcing you into theirs. That means you need to route your connection cables around them, because forcing them to "leave", well, there's that force thing again, and we've already discusses whose forcing what.

The root of "Libertarian" is "liberty", which is anathema to forced conduct of any kind.

Europe? They already gutted and are gutting Europe…now it’s Americas turn.

The globalist want to ruin this country economically and return it to a serfdom level


When has this country ever known serfdom??

In fact the more liberal this country has become, the worse things have gotten and the more freedoms we've lost.

Take your fear and lies elsewhere!
