    Oh, nice. But Federal dollars spent in districts on projects is far different than democrat operatives hitting the streets on election day and handing out $20 bills to people to go vote....Wink, wink.....Besides, are you trying to say that demo's don't do pork?

    Are you pretending to forget that you're talking to someone who has consistently (and in this very thread) pointed the finger at both major parties, or are you watching television while you're reading DP?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    There is a huge difference.

    Are you pretending to forget that you're talking to someone who has consistently (and in this very thread) pointed the finger at both major parties, or are you watching television while you're reading DP?
    I don't pretend, that is for children, and or liberals. I am just reading what you write and responding. And I don't think you had anything in your post that alluded that both parties were doing this.....Hmmm let's see. You said:

    Both the electorate and the members of Congress on both sides of the isle have been wearing a For Rent sign for quite some time.

    Could we stop pointing at "the other guy," or acting like this is a novel concept?
    After I talked about demo's handing out money in districts to buy votes. Then knowing that you couldn't back that up you then changed the goal posts to pork here:

    I believe it's called "pork."
    And now you are trying to tell us that getting money as an earmark to build a new fire house, or improve infrastructure is the same as walking up to a person in say an urban community and giveing them a $20 bill and saying that they need to go vote, and oh by the way, we support the demo candidate. Yeah right.

    No, there really is no difference between narrowly-targeted allocations of tax dollars exchanged for campaign contributions or votes and bribes.

    Uh, no, that's not moving the goal posts. It's the same thing.



    Also, way to accuse me only pointing at one party, then quoting where I point at both of them -- nothing entertains me than someone too confused to keep their lies straight.

    The only "lie" here is not being perpetrated by me sir....And now that you are devolving into name calling I think we are done. I have things to do anyway.

    Re: McDonald’s Workers Are Told Whom to Vote for

    That's what usually happens when someone tries to accuse me of bias about 5 seconds after I clearly criticize both sides.

    Re: McDonald’s Workers Are Told Whom to Vote for

    First of all, it's "for whom to vote," not "whom to vote for." NYT should know better.
    Second, the OP misrepresents the content to make it sound more nefarious than it is:

    The pamphlet said: “If the right people are elected, we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above the current levels. If others are elected, we will not.”

    It then named three Republican candidates after stating, “The following candidates are the ones we believe will help our business move forward.”
    As a member of a professional organization, I get stuff like this every election cycle and when there are certain bills up for vote. It doesn't thrill me when it's urging me to vote against my beliefs, but it is what it is. Big dang deal.

    This is the sort of errant pedantry up with which I shall not put. Ending sentences with prepositions is perfectly cromulent English. It's only ungrammatical in Latin.
