    I think it was Rush that said it, but can't remember for sure.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Hobo, I know we discussed this in another thread, and you apologized for your incorrect assumption. I appreciate that. Since others reading this thread may not have read the other, I'll restate here that this is the hat Aretha Franklin wore to sing at the inauguration. It was a fashion atrocity and has made it's way all over the www on kittens, children, political figures, celebs ... etc. It cracks me up.


    eta: the hat



    What political thread would be without Brad and Angelina?

    Yeah, I made both posts before I read your reply. Sorry 'bout that.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    These are the thing I disagree with Michael Steele on:

    "More funding for adult stem-cell research, but not embryonic." -The government should not be funding any of it.
    "Support affirmative action and its improvements." -Racial quotas are unconstitutional.
    "Led commitment to $70M in grants to minority-owned business." -No government handouts.
    "Use anti-terrorism tools on criminals in our neighborhoods." -Not the purpose of antiterrorism laws.
    "More enforcement against Drug Trafficking." -The War on Drugs is lost, stop wasting resources.
    "Affirms marriage is between one man and one woman." -I agree on marriage, but the law must allow civil unions of some kind to all citizens.
    "Mandatory sentencing guidelines for child sex offenders" -Every case is different, judges should be given some discretion.
    "Reinstate college-level grant and loan programs" -No grants, I could live with loans, but prefer them to be from private institutions.


    These are the things I agree with Michael Steele on:

    "Roe v. Wade should remain in place."
    "Supports Bush's veto of embryonic stem cell research."
    "Moratorium on gas taxes until price stabilizes."
    "Create and sustain real energy independence."
    "Solar and renewables are the energy sources for the future."
    "Personally opposed to the death penalty." (To a degree.)
    "No ban on guns; focus on enforcement instead."
    "Let businesses avoid burdensome and ineffective system."
    "I don't need government dictating socialized medicine."
    "Spend more on care and less on bureaucracy."
    "Rumsfeld wouldn't be my secretary of defense."
    "Flexibility for some ownership over retirement choices."
    "Make tax relief permanent and repeal the death tax."
    "We need a clear strategy, and to pressure Iraq gov't."
    "Facilitated faith-based institutions to tap into resources."
    "Government should have limited control over welfare & family."

    So, for the most part, I am happy with this pick. I hope he brings the party back to its core principles.

    I disagree with the bolded. *sigh*, he's not what I call perfect, I'd venture to say he is more like McCain, but he is okay in that position.

    Wait, why does he want Roe v. Wade to remain in place?

    His words: "My desire is that we follow what stare decisis is at this point."

    "...have to live with the reality of a decision that was made 33 years ago."

    I agree that he is not perfect, but we should save those people for elected office.

    Wow, one more reason for me to agree with him.

    Thanks for clarifying Alex.

    Of course your response is that they aren't interested. Why do you think that is?
    Do you always answer a question with a new unrelated question? We call this avoidance; not to mention trolling.
