    Re: Rep. Maxine Waters says "Tea Party can go straight to hell"

    It's pretty obvious that Waters is a socialist. It's just too bad she can't use the word and admit it. Nationalize the oil industry? That is what she was advocating, after all. She didn't want to use the word "socialism" and couldn't think of the synonym "nationalize" right off hand.

    She is what she is. She does not represent mainstream Democrats, however, no matter how much the Republican partisans would like to convince is she does.

    thank you for admitting the obvious that Joe refuses to. However, I must say that if we use actions rather than words, I think the shift is obvious.

    Not so sure, and frankly, you can't base much on that single comment, especially such a short clip. Nor should someone try.

    And while I think all should agree you can't make anyone member represent a party, I'm sure that is exactly what many are trying to do.

    This is the point j. You don't even care to know. You ask no questions, seek no greater understanding, and have the nerve to see others as useful idiots. Without seeing more, hearing someone out, you cannot make such leaps. That some don't care to listen says what we need to know.

    Not at all Joe, if you have something that proves out your claim that the clip is somehow out of context, then by all means provide it, and I am open to re examining my stance, but as it stands, and in general terms, Waters provided in insight into her adherence in Marxist doctrine. If you should continue on this absurd line of dismissing the clear meaning behind her words as though something that precedes, or follows a statement of "Socializing...er...um...taking over your industry...." would be anything other than hollow words meant to cover up her slip is laughable....So by all means Joe, provide the context you think does this, or admit you just lost this round.

    J, you don't have anything. 20 seconds. Period. Do you really believe that is all it takes to understand something? Hell, we can stop all meetings, all classes, as nothing needs more than 20 seconds.

    What was the debate about? Do you know? Any idea what she was really trying to say? Have you asked yourself that question? Do you ever question any of this that doesn't involve a republican?

    No j, losing and winning is decided by self declarations. You first need to understand what is being said.

    Re: Rep. Maxine Waters says "Tea Party can go straight to hell"

    So you have nothing that proves out your own claim then...the hearing if I am not mistaken was a little show about oil pricing, and price at the pumps designed to blame the high prices on the favorite whipping boy of demo's, the oil industry. Waters didn't like what the oil exec had to say and launched into her rant that revealed her true intent. You can dismiss it all you want Joe, as only 20 seconds, however I don't see you posting anything further to back your claim, so you have nothing.

    I can't find it on the web now, but I'm sure I've heard her advocate nationalizing the oil industry before, maybe two or three years ago. This is nothing new for her.

    Waters is not the Democratic Party, however. She is one congresswoman who is advocating a socialist idea.

    Can't argue with the Kool-aid drinkers. I guess he didn't hear the words "taking over" come from self-proclaimed "liberal" Maxine Waters' lips just after she said "socialize", or just can't comprehend what they mean in context when used together.

    Are you smarter than a 5th grader? I guess not...

    This assumes that someone struggling for language and dealing with anger in a heated off the cuff exchnage always says exactly what they mean. it is silliness to believe such. So, provide evidence she has proposed actually doing anything of the kind, or have your drank too much kool-aid?
