From Charles Koch himself......


this is the Mother of All Wars we've got in the next 18 months. For the life or death of this country. So, I'm not going to do this to put any pressure on anyone here, mind you. This is not pressure. But if this makes your heart feel glad and you want to be more forthcoming, then so be it.
 
and what is so bad about that ? didnt say dem can all go to hell, didnt call em terrorist's , didnt say to take em out , didnt turn to a female state senetor and say , youre f*$k*ng dead  ODENHAL   doesnt see how you can conpare
you can not deny this gorgeosness, you can only hope to handle it

Glad to see this subject has resurfaced.
 
I am staying away from all news stations now.  It is so damn boring to hear nothing more than about the election.  I am watching Al Jazeera which actually broadcasts news from around the world and not just this back and forth that has become so terribly tiresome.
 
I want to start my own political party should anyone wish to join:
 
The cynical, they really don't give a s___ about us, every man is out for himself, lobbyists own us, the system is broken, only profits matter, there are very few true patriots out there, the party is over party.

another attempt, which hopefully could be more successful than the ones in years past,

In the summer of 2012, citizen leaders from across the country will come together for the No Labels National Convention. The first of it's kind, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike will come together to put the labels aside and hear from elected officials and candidates from across the political spectrum about the importance of bipartisanship, civility, and the No Labels approach.

Your hopes are misplaced.  This is just the latest failboat launched by Don Quixote types like the ones who launched the Coffee Party, Republican Majority For Choice, etc, etc.  A union of former Obama enthusiasts who suddenly never heard of the guy and a handful of apologetic RINOs are probably not the next big wave.

It's sort of odd that these pious calls for non-partisanship always seem to materialize every time the GOP is, or looks to about to be, in power.

Didn't see much of this in 2008 and 2009.

Wow!
First they cheer the deaths of 234 people .


And then they cheer a 30 yo being left to die because he didn't feel like buying health insurance.


I'm reminded of that old saying......WWJD.


Not the sort of people I want to hang out with.

Not the sort of people who want you to hang out with them, I'll warrant.

They might not....but I'm willing to bet that Jesus would have dinner with me long before he supped with the "Pharisees".

I think the best way to describe them is 'right wing anarchists' - well, sort of.

Something about the speck in my eye and the plank in yours comes to mind when I see this.

On the other hand, at least these people are out fighting for their political beliefs, instead of piously mewling about imagined "racism, vitriol and nastiness," so, they merit at least a modicum of respect.

They are not fighting for their political beliefs......They are fighting for their Dominionist Christian beliefs.

So the choices are only Dominionism or Socialism?


At least we may have another 7-11.
That's where we will wind up.

"They are not fighting for their political beliefs......They are fighting for their Dominionist Christian beliefs."

Code Pink and the rest of the Day of Ragers on Wall Street are Christian Dominionists?  Really?  Is that your final answer?  Try again.  That is not even coherent.

Could we at least eat tres leche?
 
Some say tomato, some say tomatoe, but labels are often thrown around to see what sticks.
It is interesting to me if there are some who truly want a better return to separation of powers and levels of govt.
Do some want to see something more like an earlier confederation of states.
 
For 2012, will there be a debate again on social democracy-
[from the wiki overlords]
And could social democrats support Obama.
