Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Kennedy's Senate seat at the bottom of the river with Mary Jo. The man was a pig. I think it would be fitting to see an (R) or an (I) after it now that he's gone.

No matter who wins Massachusetts, we will no be any better than we are today.

Actually, I strongly disagree.
We would be much better off if Brown won, NOT because I think the Republicans are so great, but because his win would kill the super-majority and prevent more spending from being pushed down our throats.
The best government is one which can do NOTHING. We've had too much done TO US, not for us, and it's time it stops.
Pray for a deadlocked Congress. It is our best hope.

No Centurion, I found out last elections that our nation is beyond choosing politicians for change, we are way beyond that, we are do for something a lot more daring and more effective to bring the message to Washington.

You know that.

The health care bill is been pushed by big interest, the senator from Massachusetts will do what the big interest tells him to do.

That is the way of politics in America, we don't count anymore, that state have mandatory health care, where was the Brown when that bill was shoved into the butts of the people in that state?.

Actually he did vote for the Republican version of the health care bill.

Different no way in hell, change only in your dreams

And that is reality.

Thats a very tough thing to say. Sometimes a solution like you suggest can do more damage than the disease. Much like with cancer, sometimes the chemo will kill both the patient and the cancer. Not saying that business as usual can continue in DC. But what you are suggesting should be the very very very last resort. Do you think we are at that point?

He has already said he would vote against the health care bill. In fact, your response makes no sense, since all 40 Republican Senators voted against the bill, and he would also. Believe what you will. History has shown that a deadlocked Congress is the best way to prevent deficits and unwanted spending.

I'm praying for a Congress that will work together to address the real crisis that we are in.

Gridlock is the last thing we need.

It was a time in America when people used to gather and fight, meaning protest, marching by the thousands in Washington, we did that and we brought change, our parents did it.

Now people protest are meaninglessl, useless and the government knows it, the play with peoples freedom to express because in no longer numbers to show solidarity.

When was the last time that people in this nation raise up and marched into Washington to show their displeasure with the politicians?

You know why because every time people gather they are so far from a common goal that it turns into crap.

What do you think that I am calling for a revolution? the only revolution I am calling is for freedom of expression in full force and by numbers.

That's a great sentiment, and I wish it would happen. However, it won't with this crew. You can't have any cooperation when one party decides to write bills behind closed doors, then vote on them in the middle of a Saturday night, and refuse to even allow members to read the legislation before the vote.

Yes, but back to the world-at-hand for a minute, we've got a situation where no Republicans voted for the socialist health care legislation and likely none for the global warming cap and trade legislation. So this is the hand of cards for the time being. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater just yet.

The hopeful deception,


Scott Brown, the Republican whose quest to win Ted Kennedy’s seat has jolted Democrats with the possibility of losing the 60-seat majority needed to pass a health-care bill, defended on Wednesday his own vote as a state senator for mandatory health insurance in 2006.

Brown, defending the plan signed by former Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, argued that the Democratic plan being debated in Washington is an entirely different proposal.

“They’re two different programs,” said Brown, during an appearance on Fox News.

“What we have here is a free-market enterprise where we’re providing insurance on various levels to people in Massachusetts,” Brown said. “The plans in Washington are a one-size-fits-all plan that’s going to cost almost $1 trillion-plus and raise taxes at a time when we don’t need it.”


He and the democrat candidate are not different from each other they both will cater to private interest in the name of "free interprise" look what the mandatory insurance has done to the state of Massachusetts, is an economic nightmare and he vote for it.

I wonder when people will wake up and start facing the reality of politricks in this nation.

I seem to remember 9/12 there was about 1-1.5 million people that protested.

What did the Propaganda Minister say-The President was not aware there was a protest.

Sorry Marg, I think the next protest better be carrying guns, maybe then they would be aware of it.

I know, but among the protesters it was not solidarity, it was so many different groups and each ground had their own agenda.

Protesting in America has become a joke at the expenses of the people that actually have meaningful messages that affects every American.

No wonder the government laugh at us and treat us like nuisance, relegate us to pens and used technology to intimidate take away our purpose.

Was the CIA cheating when it staged the operation to assassinate JFK?
Was Rumsfield cheating when he "LOST" 2.3 trillion dollars given to the Pentagon the day before 9/11?
Was President Bush cheating when he declared war on Iraq without congressional approval?
Were the Senators and Congressmen cheating when they accepted bribes for this latest bill?
Was the current president cheating when he spent millions in legal protection to keep his birth certificate away from public view?

Folks, are you still thinking in terms of Democrat and Republican?
If so, why?

Isn't it time to water that tree yet?

This is desperation centurion. The ship is sinking. Keep in mind that Schultz was at one time a conservative shock jock. The following from Wiki:



Schultz's political views leaned towards the right during the early years, and Schultz told the Los Angeles Times that he "lined up with the Republicans because they were anti-tax, and I wanted to make a lot of money...."


No s*** Ed! It's just that some of us have "live with a modicum of integrity" listed just slightly ahead of "make a lot of money" on our to do lists. He was ignored as a conservative so he switched teams to find a money making niche. Guess what? This spineless, money grubbing, unprincipled, former sportscaster needs to find a new team.

I agree. We are much better off when Washington is not trying to do anything. As a matter of fact, my first thread on ATS was about that very thing. Unfortunately, I guess it wasn't very good, because it didn't garner any attention.

Wow... such hatred? .. Calling 50% or more of the country (Republicans) Bastards? What a douche bag.. Maybe the Dems are worried they will be loosing seats in the upcoming election.. I know I will vote Republican in hopes of shifting the power (I voted Dems for legislature last election) .. Democrats have shown they cannot handle to much power, they abuse it grossly.

Hate to break it to ya, but it's only 28% of the country as of the last election. 36% Dems, and the rest of us are Independent Centrists. Please do us a favor and don't count us among your numbers, even though you can't win any election without us...

Just sayin'...
