There is a level of self loathing and seething anger in most I know.
It really is amazing to me as well. I have often longed for a real discussion with a liberal to try and understand thier thinking but you can never quite get there. They start out with thier "feelings". But when you begin to approach reality, it devolves quickly into tired old accusations of racism sexism and any other ism they can conjure up
it is still mind-boggling why so many democrats are so inclined to support restrictive socialist-like candidates instead of those that lessen the burdens placed on the citizens by their government...it's almost like we are Otis on the Andy Griffith show whereby we are more than willing to incarcerate and punish ourselves...astounding. the democrats sell you on freedom and then over-regulate the life out of you.. again...astounding.
Lots of folks are unhappy with the republican congress but it does not mean they want to replace them with Dems, Many want more action out of them to STOP obama
I love how in denial you on the left are about 2014
Gee wonder why so many Dems lost thier seats? I guess anyone can just make up stats
Nearly two-thirds (63%) disapprove of the Democratic leaders in Congress, while 74% disapprove of the Republican leadership. That's worse than in March 2011, when 64% said they disapproved of GOP leadership a few months after the party took control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
i'm with you on maintaining a fighting weight...however, my metabolism and activities allow me to eat virtually anything i desire and maintain a 5-10# variance in weight for the past 30+ years. eating smart along with activity can help just about anyone with their weight with the exception of those predisposed genetically or those that suffer from some medical malady.
Quit the coffee before noon daily, I'll pass on the pastry thanks, not that I don't like them just keeping to my fighting weight.
Stillhere....i used to be able to drink coffee until right before bedtime. now however i, like you have a cut-off time for a delicious cup of the "nectar of the dead". i neglected to mention, that although i despise it, i would prepare a cup of decaf for you. do you prefer coffee-cake, doughnut, or other pastry with your coffee?
Little late for coffee for this guy, but thanks for the offer
afternoon Stillhere...fresh coffee here for the asking.
ah yes...the democratic party is fast becoming the novelty or fad party. hmmm...i don't recall Harry Reid or the Democrats remarking that Herman Cain could be a Historic (even though he actually would have been the first TRUE first-generation african-american president) much less "articulate" candidate and subsequent president. hmm the standards do seem to be in a free fall. much is said about the face of government should represent the demographics of the electorate. upon research i was stunned to find that only 12.6% of the population is listed as african-american as of 2013 with the largest concentration, percentage wise, in the District of Columbia. you would not know that while doing a 360 around here. either way....politicians like everyday people should be judged by their character and actions instead of skin color....and yes Virginia...everybody judges...even YOU.
Obama diplomacy, make sure the guys chanting Death to America get nukes, oh yea they just want it for energy sitting on a sea of crude oil LOLOL wow how dumb does one have to be?
Hmmm MOD why do you on the left have such a hard time admitting that Obamas agenda is very unpopular while he is less so. If he were not an HISTORIC candidate his arse would never have been elected and definitely not twice.
Now before you attempt to call me a racist, recall that those WERE HIS CAMPAIGNS words about him, and YES you thought RACE as soon as I said it. EXACTLY the point.
Moderation...i failed to hear one republican campaign on continuing Obamas agenda...did i miss something? are you really hanging your hat on the Gerrymandering excuse? if the repubublicans were allowed to gerrymander then would that not indicate that at some point a democrat lost under their own gerrymandered district? if the democrats failed to get out and support their repsective candidates, then we can assume no vote was the same as a yes vote for the opposition. the democrats have done a wonderful job of painting....painting by numbers if you will. i will say that until the "pen" in the White House changes, the right will be painted as obstructionists...i guess the unruly child would call their parents obstrutionists as well. sometimes you have to live with a label when you are the adult in the room.
levels. just because it's legal doesn't make it right...now does it?
collective consumers must also be included as a culprit.
6. this is tricky and one that i neither have the time nor inclination to expand upon at the moment.
7. i agree that more legally qualified people should vote...once.
8. i agree that we should encourage those that can, to become less "unfortunate" on their own. the standard for which one qualifies for the taxpayers benevolence should be increased and not minimalized. there are plenty of "scum" that scam the system in all socio-economi
NCN...all great points you make.
1. Obamas diplomacy is fluff. i guess you haven't noticed the turmoil in the world have you?. he has basically went around the world bowing down to whomever he could and it yielded what? pretty please and a box of chocolates might get you a date but to stop an enemy...hardly.
2. requiring everyone to have health insurance sounds great but it is not much more than a pea and shell game. those that work still pay for those that don't. all that changed was the flow of money so far.
3.controlling gun deaths starts with changing the mind of the human and not exclusively through regulations. some regulations may hamper some in society from aquiring guns, but ultimately people kill people.
4. my kids are a better source of information than politicians and some scientists...especially those that jockey for federal and state grant monies. scientists still gotta eat don't cha know.
5. this is where we agree...with one addition...the coll
