    I can list lots of very, very specific stuff, if you'd like.
    Actually, I would prefer to see a coherent, specific, well laid out plan for economic growth that might gain support from both political parties...

    Oh, and it was disagreement among the Dems that blocked the temporary extension as noted in the article...

    No surprise, since your Dem-dislike borders on legendary. But, the guy/gal you jumped in to rescue falsely accused me of being a partisan Dem lemming. So I gave some examples of where I depart from Dems and agree more with Reps, and queried if any Dem stuff appealed to him/her, to which I got a bio and nothing Dem-ish he/she agreed with.

    But then, folks (we all) tend to think others think like them (us). So when someone accuses me of being this or that, I tend to think it's a window into them, which I then illustrate.

    See how it works?

    Its failure was due to the filibuster. Dems did not filibuster it; Reps did.

    I don't dislike Dems at all. It's their policies, such as the ones you posted, that I oppose a bit...

    Did you even read your own linked article?

    Why would you need them? You just said yourself that cops are all over the place down town and nearly absent in the burbs. Are you back-peddling?

    Sorry; I was not clear. You're about as Rightie as they come, and oppose anything from the Dem side on partisanship alone. So you needed not clarify that you oppose everything from the Dem side. I already know you to be a Right Wing Lemming.

    NOW we're getting somewhere ... yes, the causes we can argue about (actually, you and I probably can't, others can), but the data are pretty clear, which is what you questioned ...

    Why is it that you feel the need to attack another personally rather than just discussing the issues?
