You said you were a psych tech. So I urge to re read my post where I was quoting someone else. Once you have read that post the a Light Bulb might go off in your head, if it doesn't just keep trying to read maybe it would one day.


I didn't say I was a psych tech, I said I was a clinical psychologist. I guess you said, 'I can prescribe the drugs you can't,' so maybe I was giving you too much credit.

Anyway, here is an updated chart showing the continued trend. Too bad you can't root for America's recovery, I bet you used to consider yourself patriotic:

What about the oil spill?


That was Cheney's fault,


You see the craziest conspiracies everywhere, yet you somehow can't connect Cheney, the former CEO of Halliburton, who held secret closed-door energy task force meetings, to Halliburton and the rest of the Big Oil?

Wow, you used the word 'photoshopped' derisively on the internet....burn.

You didn't vote for Perot? Now that was an independent movement the teabaggers only wish they could emulate.

You know, you would have a little more cred if those charts didn't have the Obama stamp of approval.

...btw, someone with your name, shouldn't be allowed to use the word "teabagger".

I'm not sure where the data came from on that "bikini" chart that all these liberals keep posting here. Maybe it merely reflects bailout money and government stimulus tickles.
Of course, it is only a "jobs creation" chart, so it almost makes sense with all the census workers and swelling government.

Here's a real unemployment chart collected from gov. data.

Unenployment Rate 1990-Apr 2010

Even those numbers don't resemble reality, as those who lose their benefits simply don't get counted and whoever is in power, along with the delusional MSM can claim "recovery".

Wasn't it just two or three weeks ago that unemployment in both the nation, and many states reached record highs?

Sorry OP, I didn't mean to help Mr Liberal derail your thread, but he can't seem to do anything else anymore, must be the hate.

Closer to the topic, I predict more incumbents going down this year than any other time in recent history. That goes for anyone who got paid off, or suckered into voting for that HCS (Health Care Scam).

As far as the Clinton thing, if you're unfamiliar with the term "Fleecing of America", look it up, it's fascinating research. Hell, "Pawn Shop Willie" even de-constructed a site in one of our local reservoirs where they used to test torpedoes just for the steel. Anything that wasn't bolted down, and much more that was, became fair game.

Puppets of the Left only have photoshopped graphs to hold onto or the graph the White House puts out so that the KOOL AID drinking crowd stays in that Blissful Awe state. You know the kind of Awe state that sends thrills up ones leg.

Wow, so this one slip of the toungue proves what? Isn't that the smoking gun that supposedly shows Obama is a muslim or something. Takes a lot chutzpah to bring-up this topic, though:

Obama a Muslim? Painchod do you know something we might not? I just posted that to show how much the eloquence a Harvard grad and a constitutional law teacher knows about our states in the union.

You can do better than that, spam some more Bush Videos...

Just goes to prove what I and others have said earlier.

'My change in party will enable me to be re-elected'




Ironically, it was probably one of the most honest things a politician has said in quite some time.

It'll cost him though, as the truth usually does in the game.

Specter is another fine example of why there should be age limits one can serve in Congress.

Some of these people, geez-practically wheeling them in on death beds.

Who cares? The tea party ardents will vote Republicans in and they will still get screwed over. I can't even believe this has become an argument about Bush. The guy was a scum bag, no question. Obama isn't any different in the end either.

How about you guys stop voting for both parties? As for Perot, Skunknuts was quite correct. That was a true independent movement, not a Palin co-op.

Blaming Bush for running this country into the ditch isn't obfuscating, it's truth telling. That's why all the 'newly-awakened' conservatives have no clout w/ me. I, and most liberals, predicted exactly what has happened to this country way back in Bush's first term. It was clear to anyone w/ a brain what was going to happen to the economy, with the wars, and all the other calamities (9/11, Katrina, budget surpluses to record deficits, etc. ,etc., etc.).


Oh no you don't. You aren't deflecting this one. In the example I gave Democrats blamed Bush for Coakley losing the election. So how is that possible? Answer - it's NOT.

And Bush didn't ruin this country on his own. He had a Democrat-controlled Congress helping him all the way. Checks and balances mean anything to you? Of course not, because you're blinded by your own partisanship.

And you are trying to deflect this into something it isn't. The Democrat party is full of as much blame as the GOP. You fail and the Republican party isn't worthy of any sort of praise. Get over yourself, sir.

Actually this is kind of interesting that I JUST read this earlier today:

"HARRISBURG, Pa. - In a rival's ad, five-term U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania is caught in a moment of political boasting, saying his switch last year from Republican to Democrat "will enable me to be re-elected" — drawing out the word elected for emphasis.

Not so fast, Arlen."

www.msnbc.msn.com...

And when I got to the bottom of the first paragraph and read "Elected for emphasis" I had a nice little chuckle and said to myself "F'in idiot" buwhahaha. This dude has nailed his coffin it seems on ALL fronts! I still say KICK 'EM ALL OUT!!

who cares, the Dems will just keep the seat anyway, let them caibalize eachother.
i don't see why the OP is so excited about this...he is a righty.

Ahh Arlen Spector. The guy who thought of the "magic" or "single bullet theory" a la Kennedy's assassination and the Warren Commission.

en.wikipedia.org...

Amazing that someone who came up with such an absurd theory, could rise to the office of US Senator.. I raise my glass to anyone who voted for him - here's to throwing away a vote; granted that theory could've only evolved from a Republican..

I couldn't agree more, though admittedly, I'd prefer term limits. I'm relatively new to politics (since Nov 2008, go figure), but the more I search and learn about the politics of our country, the more I realize how jacked-up we really have become. We've got the Dems who can never be trusted, the Repubs who can be trusted about 20% of the time, and we've got Independents that never seem to have enough money/influence to make a real difference.

The Tea Party gains traction and make it clear that we need another party, then all the media shills (yes, even the ones who would SEEM supportive of the movement) tell us "No, if we have third party candidates, the Dems will win, so we need the Repub incumbents."

I'm fed up with them all, for the most part. It pretty much seems to me that I'd like to just clean house at the polls this year, and get rid of every single incumbent. I realize the danger in this, but at this point I'm willing to roll the dice with younger, more "in-touch" candidates that haven't been on the take since WWII. I wonder how many incumbents don't even know how to check their e-mail or how to sign in to their own Twitter and Facebook accounts? Heck, I'll bet there's a few that don't know how to use a microwave oven, and a couple that think "The Clapper" is wonderful technology. And you know there's gotta be a few that have those "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up" bracelets (probably don't know how to use those either).

As this pertains to Mr. Specter, I almost think I'd prefer Obama to back him--it's worked out so well for the other candidates he's chosen to endorse. I saw someone post earlier on this thread that they will vote for Specter in the primaries, and actually that's a pretty good strategy. I think all conservatives in PA should vote for Specter in the primaries--that way a conservative candidate has a great shot at defeating him come Nov.

Yeah dude, no doubt. Nixon would get run out of town as a socialist if he tried to run as a republican nowadays (he was ACTUALLY for socialized medicine, for example). Anyone that argues against the undeniable and completely verifiable fact that both parties have shifted way right clearly lack any understanding of political science and history. No wonder Sarah Palin still has 35% approval, but I digress....

There is a basic lack of understanding of what 'conservative' and 'progressive' mean in this country. When polled, people say they identify as conservative, but when asked about SPECIFIC policies, the same people more often than not, take what would be the progressive position--As my signature says.....Is it any wonder why republicans always try to suppress voter turn-out and obfuscate w/ wedge issues and character attacks. The birthers are nothing more than the swift-boaters gone insane.

Best,

Absolutely!

Furthermore, the health care bill that finally passed was more in line with the one that Bob Dole proposed back in 1994 when dealing with the Clinton. Additionally, the Democrats, who use to be considered progressives, now make it the status quo to sell out to lobbyist and pander to wall street.

Arlen Specter was a Democrat while he worked for the Warren Commission, he switched to the Republican Party in 1965.

I think that would probably be giving Specter a lot of credit.
I think he probably got a lecture, telling him about the theory he would propose, from TPTB!
His payoff? Whatever it took to buy the Senate seat, maybe?
