So what if the GOP is delibrately infringing on the voting rights of millions of blacks across the country by eliminating voting hours. So what if the GOP has repeatedly shelved bills to expand benefits to veterans? So what if the GOP supports invasive unnecessary medical procedures to deter and intimidate women form their right to make decisions about their own bodies?

You're right, cue card lady, we should be spending more time legislating Gay people's sex lives and denying climate change and less time trying to improve the Health Care system with websites that offer them cheaper plans and  more benefits.  I'm voting GOP.

I shouldn't have to choke and die on exhaust and air pollution because Republicans have rolled back all the regulations and eliminated citizens right to sue companies for damages. I shouldn't have to wait 9 or 10 hours in line to vote because I live in a predominately black voting precinct that Republicans find that a threat to their power. I shouldn't have to consult the penal code to have sex because Republicans are trying to reinstitute sodomy laws. But hey, I MIGHT get a discount on gas because Republicans MIGHT loosen things up even more for their oil industry buddies so hey vote republican?

Oh and good luck getting any Republicans to back solar, wind, or hydro research and development. Obama took a chance on companies like Solyndra and Tesla and the GOP had a hissy fit. Global warming isn't real so there's no need for these energy companies! So so much for your "all of the above" energy policy. (By the way, wasn't an "all of the above energy policy" Obama's energy talking point point for the last two elections?)

Oh and while they grant favors for all their buddies in big oil, say goodbye to all of your civil liberties as they outlaw same sex marriage, outlaw abortion, outlaw your workers union,  and infringe on your voting rights as a college student.

All so you can save a few pennies per gallon… maybe. Yes, you too can be a short sighted poser and join the GOP.

The Tiger That Ate Its Master

"America needs a strong, rational, positive, practical conservative movement. It needs that bulwark against liberal delusion and hubris. It needs a voice that says we are imperfect, that life is complex, that government can create need even as it meets need, that you can’t fix everything and freedom is worth some danger and sorrow. And there are smart, honest conservatives at the ready to be that voice, to help govern practically and sincerely with that voice, but they are drowned out by the guttural scream of craven utopians raging against reality."

If you care about the Separation of Powers in the Federal Government,  you better hope Obama and the Democrats hold. 

 If the Congress is allowed to short circuit the legislative process and repeal, alter, remove any law at any time by threatening the funding of the government or the credit of the nation, you have essentially made the Congress the only Legislative body and effectively destroyed the power of the executive branch. You have ended all debate and all the checks and balances between the branches. Obama  and Reed can never allow such a strategy to be rewarded. 

Imagine Conservative President Ted Cruz and Senate Majority Leader McConnell facing a challenge from a Democratically controlled congress. The Congress says that unless President Cruz passes a single payer HealthCare system, budget increases for the EPA and IRS, they will defund the government and not approve the debt limit. Comply and President Cruz gets 2 weeks of Government Funding.  After those 2 weeks Democrats will demand, a constitutional Gay Marriage amendment and an Amnesty Granting Immigration Reform bill,  in return for two more weeks of Government Funding. Democrats claim these are all "bad laws" that "don't work" so we must change them. What would you suggest President Cruz roll over for that? Would you accuse President Cruz of not negotiating with that tactic. 

President Obama has said repeatedly Obama care isn't perfect. If Republicans want to work to improve it he's open to negotiation. But he cannot allow this tactic to succeed. For the sake of the nation and future Presidents and Senators and the nation. This Tea Party shutdown/debt ceiling gambit cannot be allowed to succeed.

How to Deal With a Bully

A neighborhood bully is different than some random mugger. If some random jerk sticks you up for your cash, you can give it up if you need to because chances are you'll never see that jerk again. But if you let a neighborhood bully take your pocket change today, he'll take your jacket tomorrow, and your shoes the day after that.

You don't negotiate with that kind of bully. You don't even wait to hear what he wants. It doesn't matter what he wants. You gotta put that kind of bully down. You got to bury him. Bury him so deep he never forgets.

I don't get it. Republicans spend 6 years questioning every aspect of Obama's being then present us with this enigma who apparently stands for nothing, can't define his prior employment, and won't release his tax returns. The hypocrisy... it is baffling.

Well part of it is that you can't really generalize about an amorphous blob of 150 million people.  There are always going to be angry and hateful people in any large group.  Sadly these are the voices that are magnified on both sides and are used to reinforce the false dichotomy that is our political system. 

Cooler heads prevailed with the Republicans when picking their nominee and the vitriolic minority does not speak for the the rest of the voters.  This is why Huckabee, Buchanan and Falwell didn't win.

Personally I'm proud of both choices we have in November.  I think both of these guys are smart, reasonable, accomplished people who genuinely have the country's best interest at heart.  It's a bizarre sentiment today where it seems like the 24 hour news cycle has practically killed off any semblance of civility and respect in the political process anymore.

More "verifiable facts" from Fox News!

http://gawker.com/megyn-kelly-both-jesus-and-santa-were-white-so-stop-c-1481842503

 These "verifiable facts" aren't historically correct. Aren't Biblical correct. Aren't Christian. They're just dumb and an insult to everyone. 

Also: Drag Queen Santa? I have no idea what that is, but  now I kinda have to see it. And long live Penguin Santa!

I stopped posting politics to G+ but the stupid... the stupid always brings me back. And it never ends... Just when you think it couldn't possibly get dumber,  it does, and I need someone... anyone... to explain.  I can't even...

Lets accept as fact, Pat's racist "simple" foreigners premise . How convenient for God then, that in the only place skeptical enough to inspect and examine these "miracles", he decides not to produce any miracles. I guess, God is just sneaky omnipotent like that. 

Also how convenient for Pat who also likes "simple" people who will believe ANYTHING you tell them. Very useful during those CBN pledge drives.
