No, you don't make the nation work. The guy who signs your paycheck — you know, the wealthy guy — is the engine of America's economy. All the middle class do is move the money from the bank to the McDonald's drive-thru window.

No, that's not a contribution.

Oh, and now we have yet another example of the Democrat penchant for profound deception...

Nancy Pelosi LYING Her Ass Off

Following more than a year of House Speaker Pelosi insisting that she was never briefed on American methods of interrogating terrorists, today the CIA has released documentation proving that Pelosi was thoroughly briefed on those extreme interrogation methods.

Until now, Pelosi has feigned ignorance on the subject, expressing her hypocritical surprise and disgust that such interrogation methods were employed.

So, the lead Democrat in the House, the Speaker the House of Representatives, is a LIAR. Wow. Who would have ever guessed it?

But wait, I'm confused now... It's the Republicans who lie, right? I know that because the OP says so. But, if it's the Republicans who lie, then how could we have caught a Democrat, Nancy Pelosi, lying so brazenly to the American public? Oh, oh, oh, my whole world is coming apart! You mean Democrats lie, too???

Or maybe Democrats just don't get it when it comes to telling the Truth.

I'm not sure what it will take to wake up America. But I do think we're going to get the depression whether we want it or not. This economic upheavel will be the catalyst for change. Obama wants change--wait till unemployment is 17%, and America figures out, that the Stimulus didn't work. The Dems will get their change--it might not be what they intended.
Several things really scare me about what is currently going on. One, is the speed at which the Dems are changing things. They see their window of opportunity, and they won't let it pass.
The second thing that scares me is the fact that there is no plan B. There is nothing else sitting in the wings to back this debacle up. I'm afraid if a banking problem gets out of hand, and the Obama people can't bluff their way out of it, all hell will break loose.
There really isn't any good news on the horizon that I can see.

I have stated numerous times that the 2 party system we have is garbage and we need to bust them up and go to a multi party system where Libertarians can actually be and vote Libertarian, where Liberals (whatever that might be) actually register and vote as Liberals, Conservatives be registered as members of such a party, Socialists the same, and so on, and so on, and so on...etc.

Most of the Founding Fathers were against the idea of political parties in the first place. Our current 2 party system in which 3rd parties are banished to the wilderness and the 2 dominating parties are just 2 sides of the same coin is resulting in a tyrannical government that is destroying our country.

Wow, looky here what I found!
Actual rantless information!

Ex-CIA Official: Agency Brass Lied to Congress About Interrogations

Once confronted with Graham's evidence, the CIA started backtracking and saying that they may have been mistaken about the briefings and dates in question. Can a complete vindication of Pelosi be far behind?

Former CIA official Mary O. McCarthy has said senior agency officials lied to members of Congress during an intelligence briefing in 2005 when they said the agency did not violate treaties that bar, cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment of detainees during interrogations.

The Bay of Pigs Invasion was planned by the CIA in Coordination with the Eisenhower/Nixon Administration.
Hmmm, maybe someone else is lying?

More than seven years after the family was shattered by a terrible mistake, the CIA has been accused in a new report of repeatedly lying to criminal investigators, members of Congress and White House officials about what happened 5,000ft above the Amazonian jungle.

The key question surrounding torture tape gate is not who authorized the destruction of the tapes in 2005. Nope. The real priority is who in the Bush Administration knowingly lied to a Federal Judge in the spring of 2003. Either the CIA told DOJ the truth and DOJ lied or the CIA lied to DOJ or the White House directed DOJ to lie. It is that simple.

So the CIA and DOD lied to the Red Cross.
Nah, they never lie, I'm absolutely sure!

And you believe ANY of them? HAhahahahahahaha!

Need any more food for thought? Deny Ignorance!(& wake up)

Sorry. Guess I better post more on topic,
AND I think this article explains it to a "T", OP!

Polls suggest that only one-fourth of the electorate considers itself Republican, that independents are trending Democratic and that as few as five states have solid Republican pluralities. And the electorate is getting less white, less rural, less Christian — in short, less demographically Republican....The party's new, Hooverish focus on austerity on the brink of another depression does not seem to fit the national mood, and it's shamelessly hypocritical, given the party's recent history of massive deficit spending on pork, war and prescription drugs in good times, not to mention its continuing support for deficit-exploding tax cuts in bad times...
They're starting to look like the Federalists of the early 19th century: an embittered, over-the-top, out-of-touch regional party en route to extinction, doubling down on dogma the electorate has already rejected...
Our two-party system encourages periodic pendulum swings, but given current trends, it's easy to imagine a third party in the U.S.
At this rate, it could be the Republican Party.
...The disaster began when GOP leaders, after calling a news conference to blast Obama's numbers, released a budget outline with no numbers...But if you pay attention, the GOP alternative is not just a p.r. disaster. It's a radical document, making Bush's tax cuts permanent while adding about $3 trillion in new tax cuts skewed toward the rich...It would replace almost all the stimulus — including tax cuts for workers as well as spending on schools, infrastructure and clean energy — with a capital gains–tax holiday for investors. Oh, and it would shrink the budget by replacing Medicare with vouchers, turning Medicaid into block grants, means-testing Social Security and freezing everything else except defense and veterans' spending for five years, putting programs for food safety, financial regulation, flu vaccines and every other sacred government cow on the potential chopping block... Snowe recalls that when she proposed fiscally conservative "triggers" to limit Bush's tax cuts in case of deficits, she was attacked by fellow Republicans. "I don't know when willy-nilly tax cuts became the essence of who we are," she says. "To the average American who's struggling, we're in some other stratosphere. We're the party of Big Business and Big Oil and the rich." In the Bush era, the party routinely sided with corporate lobbyists — promoting tax breaks, subsidies and earmarks for well-wired industries — against ordinary taxpayers as well as basic principles of fiscal restraint. South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint's Republican alternative to the stimulus included tax cuts skewed toward the wealthy; at this point, the GOP's reflexes are almost involuntary... "They talk about fiscal restraint, but they've got an atrocious record, and they've still got atrocious plans," says Robert Bixby, executive director of the nonpartisan Concord Coalition...Republicans found a nationally admired war hero with proven bipartisan appeal in 2008, and he lost to an inexperienced black liberal with a funny name. . The problem for Republicans, as the RNC's Steele memorably put it in a TV appearance, is that there's "absolutely no reason, none, to trust our word or our actions."

Read the entire article for more enlightening insight!

Of course the dems are also clueless sometimes, but this thread
isn't about them.
