Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
"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)
In the short time that I have been here reading your posting Cap'n, I feel pretty confident in saying that your message above of Demo's being "scummy" for the past eight years, is probably NOT how you really felt about the pejoratives hurled on a daily basis. And that although it may not have reared its ugly head here on the boards, perhaps in those dark corners of real lives you let loose with a few yourself.
Now, when it is demo's crack at the plate, you all the sudden become this high minded pillar of etiquette, and judge of the high road.
What it boils down to is that deep down you and the other libs that whine about this are aware that your saviour Obama, and his minions of thug so called leaders in the house and senate are failing big time. And that all the things GWB wasn't here at home, and around the world that liberals hypothesized and pondered, about how we should act as a nation, and what the American people want was pure BS, and is NOT working.
It is demonstrable that we are weaker in the world's eyes, that Obama has granted a stage to the worlds thugs, and reprobates, that 2,000 page plus lies packaged as bills are transparent only in the fact that Americans know that they are being fleeced, and that this bumbling administration couldn't seem to solve it way out of a wet paper bag.
You all lost Mass. for Christ sake! When will it become clear to you that this country always has been, and continues to be a center right country?
It's pathetic to watch these days.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
