Laugh all you like about that!

    Probably not. So I'll just mock them until they either shut up or everyone laughs at t them.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Yes, I know the defence you are trying to mount here. You want people to believe that all the racist displays in tea bagger gatherings are done by their opposition in order to frame them of having racist tendencies. Well, it just doesn't work all that well.

    But isn't it sad that you have to resort to that sort of charge in order to defend the baggers! You, a declared independent who obviously wouldn't know those facts unless you yourself were part of the frameup.

    I suspect that you're not and so that only leads to one suspecting that you are one of them whose issue is protecting them for some reason. Why is that? Why would you think that they are being framed as opposed to being guilty?

    Are you just wishing it that way or do you have some evidence to show that they are being unfairly framed of being racists?

    Better question is, what are you made of? Can you answer my questions?

    Are you talking about this guy?

    Ted Cruz knows nothing about Jesse Helms

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) bizarrely counts the Clinton-Gingrich government shutdown fight as a victory for Republicans. Yet his historical ignorance hit a new high with his idolization of the late Sen. Jess Helms (R-N.C.). In a speech yesterday, he declared the Senate needed 100 more like Jesse Helms.


    At the onset, let me say Helms was anavid supporter of segregation and any mention of his career expressing admiration for parts of his legacy need to be candid about that and deplore it. It is an odd thing indeed to say in 2013 we should have 100 more like Jesse Helms.

    What was the vote on that again? Dems voted for it too.

    It didn't take long for the Leftists to play the racist card.
