    I think I miscommunicated. I hate that one group demands you attack another group first before they let you even consider their own group for the own faults.

    I was going to say this earlier but I was in a rush, the FF's would hate the far-right of today not for their political views, those are besides the point. They would hate them because they really embody many the faults of America, throughout its history. Now, I'm not saying they're the only group like that, but they certainly are a good example of such a group, that has become unAmerican.

    A good point of comparison would be the Democrats just prior to the Civil War, their actions, speech and hatred were unAmerican.

    No it is fact. Obama has done nothing to help the economy or unemployment

    Obama wants everyone else to sacrifice but he wants to give up nothing

    Why should the Democrats go along with cuts to seniors with no concessions for increased revenues from the GOP? Why do you feel it is up to our seniors to bear the total burden of reducing the deficit?


    What's with the lack of honesty?

    Why use the term "increased revenues" as code for "raising taxes"?

    I'm not ignoring anything, and I don't care if I'm being funny, because I'm having fun here.

    You're being all serious with this, and think you have a legitimate foundation for your claims, and it's just so funny.

    Re: Breaking: Obama Warns Cantor 'Don't Call My Bluff' As Debt Talks Stall

    Speaking of joke, I keep looking at this title and it just struck me...

    "Don't call my bluff". I know it wasn't his intent, but I had to chuckle a bit once I stopped and read that back to myself and realize why it was tickling me the past few days. He's essentially saying that his stance and position is a bluff and threatening Cantor not to "call" it. Can I play poker with this man? (Not really, because I don't think he's bluffing, but he's basically saying its a bluff, which that in and of itself is a bluff for you to call his bluff so he can reveal pocket aces so he really wasn't bluffing but wa rather bluffing that he was bluffing.....oof)



    I know what his intent was, which is why I probably read it and it didn't click at first, but it still make me chuckle a bit.

    Wanna see something funny?



    Ok maybe not "funny" per se but pertinent to "cry baby President".
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
