For the third time, Senate Republicans filibustered the Paycheck Fairness Act. It’s just not right. They wouldn't even allow us to begin debate on the bill, at which point we could have entertained their amendments. Instead, they stopped the bill in its tracks.

Communications is Key
So, let me be clear!
If my intentions were to make a direct quote, I would have used “quotation marks.”

Making the point that this nation is a nation of Laws, mainly Property laws (with much influence by Locke); I was not intending to quote verbatim the documents we all know.
I used the word property for persons just like you; it’s a concept with deeper meaning. 
I very well could have said; Life, Liberty, Property, Happiness, and Safety had I done so, would have left only the Lexical Semantics…

Article I, Section VIII –
“and to exercise like Authority over all Places[PROPERTY] purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;”
BLM has no Constitutional Authority, Period… 


That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

This is the influence, that poetic refashioned version of Virginia’s bill of rights, the Declaration of independence for the United States.
The reference to "property" in Section I may be compared with the use of the word by John Locke, its omission by Thomas Jefferson from the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, and its use in the Constitution, Amendments V and XIV.

Second Treatise of Civil Government John Locke (1690)

In addition, don’t act so damn superior, you really think you caught an error or misquote, really? For a person that believes everything the left is spewing out in triplicate, you have a low threshold, for bullshit and lie detection from your taxi stand.

Moreover, come November you will all be lucky if you escape without jail time.
Have a nice day!

Since January, over $70 million has been drained from Nevada’s economy because emergency unemployment benefits have not been extended. This is senseless; and that is why I continued to push for this legislation so that we could renew this lifeline for people who lost their job by no fault of their own.

I thank Senators Jack Reed and Dean Heller for their bipartisan work on this important bill and for their efforts to get this help to struggling American families who are trying to put food on the table and keep a roof over their head. The House of Representatives must now act quickly to pass this bill.

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for the ultra-wealthy in our society, like the Koch Brothers, to have more influence over our political system. They are trying to buy our democracy.

Is this akin to Barry O soliciting re-election funds from some of the richest people in the United States? Or how about Nancy P's husband and everything that he's got his hands in? Can we discus Nancy P's abuse of air transportation at the expense of the taxpayer? Or maybe we can discuss your abuse of oxygen.

The strong and resilient Ft. Hood community is grieving over this latest act of senseless violence. We stand with them.

Harry, the only thing you stand with is your sorry attitude. You are so disconnected.

Dan Snyder has to realize he is on the losing side of history. The sooner he changes the name, the better off we are. The name of the team is offensive to many people. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc-sports-bog/wp/2014/03/27/harry-reid-predicts-redskins-name-changes-within-three-years/

How does changing the name of the Redskins improve anything for the "we" you speak of?

What a dolt you are.

I hope Speaker Boehner and House Republicans will allow a vote on the bipartisan, Senate-passed legislation to extend emergency unemployment insurance. This is an important economic lifeline for so many Americans who could use a little help. http://www.dpcc.senate.gov/?p=blog&id=290
See how many unemployed veterans would benefit from the Senate-passed unemployment insurance compromise in your state.

Harry remember when you put our families at risk voting to send us into war? You and your sons never served this grand nation criminals never do? H.J.Res. 114 (107th): Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution ... (On the Joint Resolution) Senator Harry Reid Yes yes yes...  The crime you were involved in is not as bad as the cover up. Those protecting you for corruption in your office are as corrupted as you.

Many NASCAR fans can easily find their favorite drivers by simply spotting the corporate emblems on the hood of the car.

Here in the Senate, our clothing doesn't bear any commercial logos. But many Republican Senators these days might as well wear Koch Industries insignias to denote their sponsorship.

As members of the United States Senate, there should never be any doubt as to our sponsors – the American people.

Today I discussed the need to give Americans a raise. We’re up against strong forces who oppose us. Did you know that the Koch Brothers not only oppose raising the minimum wage, but that they want to abolish the minimum wage?

you make one of the nasty, inhuman conclusions ever voiced, that poor, unable individuals are lazy, stupid and therefore are
unworthy for a helping hand.I  have seen people do this my entire life, until it's one of their own taking a handout.

The Koch Brothers’ gall is staggering. They are criticizing me for attacking their free speech rights. They want to say false and misleading things about Obamacare, but we’re not allowed to call them out for it?

The budget proposals drafted by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan have been a blueprint for a modern Kochtopia. It's the Koch Budget. I'm going to keep highlighting the radical agenda of the Kochs. To any and all groups who wish to attack me on behalf of the Kochs, I say ‘fire away.’ I am proud to be the target of your attacks.

+Liberty Meme I know that and Obama got almost 1 million from the Federal government to campaign with.  I'm not saying that the Koch brothers are in the right, but is Reid any better with the Land Grab of the Bundy Ranch so he can make millions on a wind farm hey Reid is a wind barron.

In Nevada, 26,000 people have seen their lifelines shattered, having lost work through no fault of their own. They’re hard-working people who deserve unemployment compensation.

They continue to look for work -- that’s the rule, that’s what they’re doing. Across the country, the number is 2.2 million people. These people deserve our attention and they’re going to get it.

I’m very encouraged that a group of bipartisan senators put together a bill to move forward. It’s not as long as I would like. But its five months, and for those people who are desperately in need of help, it's five months of relief. It’s very important to get this done. Neither side is getting everything they wanted. But they understand that that’s the nature of compromise.

As the weeks drag on, the plight of Nevadans and others around the country become more desperate. So I hope my Republican colleagues will cooperate so we can move forward and get over all the procedural hurdles that they put up all the time. Even if people don’t support the legislation, they should let us move forward on it.

We’re going to move forward either with or without them. These are the men and women that we represent; they are people who we were sent here to serve. So let’s do the right thing and pass this bill.
