The public is far more populist and "socialist" than the pundits and parties want to believe.
Bernie Sanders, whose views are shared by strong majorities of Americans, is being depicted as the one who is out of step.

Makes you wonder who they'd hit up for disaster money if they seceded. The UN?

I am aware that people are afraid of being overwhelmed but acting as if you're the greatest when you're not is just silly & you feel like a fraud

Spot on. Parenting has become a religion, a sacred duty, except when you need help. Then people scatter.

Sometime between when we were children and when we had children of our own, parenthood became a religion in America.

Seems fair. Maybe some local faith-based organizations can pick up the slack.
 
This would be more bootstrappy and in line with republican "values".

+Tim Elkins And when the charities aren't able, I'm sure their families will all be ready to step in and rebuild it all. And when that's not enough, they'll just need to sell all their goods and then take out as many loans needed. That's the Right Wing plan after all.

Deregulation and free trade are two sides of the same coin.

FTA: "If Oak Flat were a Christian holy site, or for that matter Jewish or Muslim, no senator who wished to remain in office would dare to sneak a backdoor deal for its destruction into a spending bill — no matter what mining-company profits or jobs might result. But this is Indian religion."

+Will Mount The North Vietnamese already did something similar to that to McCain. That's why he has almost no use of one of his arms. You Libs literally have no respect for veterans, no matter what kind of sacrifices they've made, do you?

Interesting how being stars of a reality TV show for a decade didn't get the information out about their scary cult but a molestation scandal did.

#SacredSunday  
I grew up in the same church, and the abuse scandal doesn’t shock me.

Two things: First, how can you call yourself a patriot if you are so adamantly against freedom of religion? Although, I imagine they have a tortured definition that matches their tortured misinterpretations of the Constitution.

Second, read the article to the end. Members of the mosque bravely asked protesters to attend services and some protesters bravely attended. The result: “It was something I’ve never seen before. I took my shoes off. I kneeled. I saw a bunch of peaceful people. We all got along,” [Jason] Leger said. “They made me feel welcome, you know. I just think everybody’s points are getting misconstrued, saying things out of emotion, saying things they don’t believe.”

That's how Americans are supposed to be.

About 250 mostly armed anti-Muslim demonstrators and a crowd of people defending the faith faced off near a Phoenix mosque Friday night.

That's right.... The First Amendment clearly says something vague about freedom of religion because the State can't establish one. But obviously the subtext is that WASP religions are the only ones that are protected. Because the TEAhadi and Retardicans amongst us genuinely believe lies and insanity and continually project that onto the Founding Documents and Founding Fathers. </anti-Right-Wing>

So fucking sick of these shitheads that bought off hook line and sinker the Reganism of Might Makes Right. So fucking sick of it.

Bernie Sanders isn't afraid of being a liberal! He is PROUD of it!

Via our friends over at the +Tioga Pa. Democrat. They are probably the best official political page on Google+, so definitely add them to your circles.

Faith-based economics do not work. You can't cut taxes and magically create more revenue. It's naive to think that businesses will flock to your state when your massive tax cuts have slashed the budgets for education and infrastructure.

Republicans don't govern. It's their charter not to.

They posture, punish, and graft, but they don't govern.

They're even pretty up front about it -- see the GOP politician asking to be part of a government he wants to drown in the bathtub.

Of course, the younger generations pushing their limits and the predictable reactions by the older ones isn't anything new.
When the swimwear police patrolled American beaches.

Introduction
I have been doing web development since 1995. It was mostly a steam-powered, punch-card-controlled affair back then.
Bragging rights
Learned one dead language, an archaic form of another and bits of pieces of two modern ones. Forgot them all, then taught myself Perl, HTML, JavaScript & CSS and now Selenium & jQuery. Co-inventor of Tellurium (http://te52.com) and the PBehave testing language. Nothing I post should be considered to be the views or opinions of anyone else or even myself because sometimes I post stuff just for the lulz.
Education
  • Boston University
    Classical Languages and Literature, 1991 - 1995
Great centrally-located coffee shop. Wide variety of coffees available and the house blend actually tastes like coffee should, unlike the weak or burnt varieties featured at the national chains. Nice window seats to people watch, too.
