    If it is flawless, why is there an amendment process?

    The endless wanking over the Constitution, as if it's a Bible or something, never ceases to amuse me. It's a great document. However, it was written by men, flawed men. It is NOT flawless, it is NOT perfect, and it never will be.

    "A member of the left"? What does that even mean? Are they issued identification cards? Is there a secret handshake?

    WHY DO YOU PEOPLE INSIST "THE LEFT" IS SOME SORT OF ****ING HIVEMIND?

    So you have no idea who this guy was, but he must be some evil lefty dadgummit, and he brought it up in a way that you've managed to make even more unclear ... I literally have no idea what's going on here right now.

    Moderator's Warning:
    House Republicans introduce resolution to impeach Attorney General Holder[W:65]Personal and off-topic comments need to stop. Please redirect your attention to the OP, which is not MSNBC nor each other.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    2. :Citation needed: on the Matthews book line. Because I don't buy that for a second.

    Here.....this is from the Woman's Conference. Did you need another on his Book Hard Ball being required reading for colleges? See all that background he touts. Pretty much defines what MSDNC is all about.

    Matthews worked for fifteen years as a newspaper journalist, thirteen of them as a Washington bureau chief for the San Francisco Examiner and two as a national columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. Before that, he had a fifteen year career in public service: in the U.S. Senate for five years for Senator Frank Moss of Utah and Senator Edmund Muskie of Maine; in the White House for four years under President Jimmy Carter as a presidential speechwriter and on the President’s Reorganization Project then for six years as the top aide to Speaker of the House Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, Jr.

    Matthews has received the David Brinkley Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism and the Gold Medal Award from the Pennsylvania Society. He was a visiting fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy Institute of Politics and holds nineteen honorary degrees.

    His first book, Hardball (1988) is required reading in many college-level political science courses.....snip~

    Kobie, it is satisfying in my 59-YOA to be on the side of doing good things for poor folks and uninsured..

    It took 6 years for any Social Security money to reach those who needed it or qualified..

    See, that wasn't so hard. Although a few searches on Google seem to find a few instances as opposed to many.

    Of course, it's a 25-year-old book, and I've never read it (and I'd guess you haven't either). It was written long before MSNBC existed, when Matthews was actually still IN POLITICS (he was a speechwriter in the Carter admin and was Tip O'Neill's chief of staff, among other roles) as opposed to being in journalism.

    Re: House Republicans introduce resolution to impeach Attorney General Holder[W:65]

    How far will this GOP House go in the next 38 months??
    Why are they REALLY going after Holder??
    Could it be Holder is going after the very states, sponsored by these GOP members for impeachment, with anti-voting laws that will go the SCOTUS??

    but I gotta say, it's about time someone started going after this corrupt administration.

    Really? A member of the left would be someone that is of the political left, most likely a democrat.. but possibly even a socialist or green party member. Before you ask, a member of the right would be someone that is of the political right, most likely republican, but possibly libertarian. An example of someone that is a member of the right? Brit Hume.

    So you have no idea who this guy was, but he must be some evil lefty dadgummit,
    No, I never watch MSNBC. I only had it on for a few minutes. Turns out it was Karen Finney - she was a press secretary for Hilary Clinton's team and the director of communications of the DNC - so yes... a lefty.

    and he brought it up in a way that you've managed to make even more unclear ...
    She was calling them racist. Clear enough? I went searching just for you and you can see her show from here: Disrupt With Karen Finney on msnbc

    The comment occurs while she is talking about the "gang of 20 tries to impeach Holder".


    I literally have no idea what's going on here right now.
    Since you don't even know what a member of the left would be.. That doesn't surprise me too much.
