“Two (Three) week shutdown in October, but Taxes will be expected to be paid in Full and On Time in April so Congress can have their family vacation next year. And average American's can wait their tables, empty their garbage, drive their busses and ambulances and Protect Them While They Sleep...all for less-than-a-living wage.”
“It's way beyond Pride. I have pride in my family. I have pride in our military. I have pride in my fellow American's who work hard and suffer to feed and educate their children. I have pride in our First Responders and the Unknown Public Servants who are decent and truly try their best.

“Thanks for the post, it just made me realize instead of hating Cruz - in an odd way we should be grateful to them. He is gonna cause a huge self-inflicted wound so large the Republicans won't hold a Presidency for a decade or two.
Time to start suing over every gerrymandered district. Fill up the docket till the Supreme Court gets a migraine. Make them pay for the things the Supreme Court has done recently.”
“Solar, Wind, Hydro. There! Three reasons we do not need to run a tube full of poison through the Ogallalla Aquifer. Agri-Business already taints the water with heavy pesticides and herbicides and toxic biological waste from Cattle Feed Lots and improperly disposed petroleum products and don't forget FRACKING.
Clean Water = Life
Watta 'bout Jobs? Considering the course humans are on, there will be plenty of jobs in the future when we discover the only way to get clean water is to build a spaceship that can tow an ice asteroid back to Earth.”

“Raffie's gonna need a double helping of Kraft Dinner after his long day. But it's cool, he's got his Government Health Care to help him recover after slaving all day to make sure nobody else gets Government Heath Care. Yep, that's what it's all aboot, puttin' in a long day, makin' useless speeches for his TP buddies in the Hoose. Maybe later, he'll get up and walk the hoonds.
“Conservatives refuse to pay their bills. Classic. Does mommy and daddy need to have the talk with Republicans about the proper use of the Credit Card, again? Or maybe the "How the Government Works" talk again?
In 2006, Democrats held the Congress, and they gritted their teeth and paid the bills despite they're anathema to the buns occupying the seats in the White House. Republicans must do the same. No Negotiation on Debt Ceiling.”
“I like living in a diverse, secular nation, and I'm staying. If we didn't live in a diverse, multi-belief, multi-cultural country, Dee Pee's job would evaporate. Who would she have to botch about when everybody in the country is exactly like her? She could go on TV and debate an empty chair. Or be the new Andy Rooney -- "I hate when I get up in the morning and my hair is rumpled! - Are liberals to blame?"”
“Legalize marijuana and the skies will fall, brimstone will rain down and burn the crops. Floods, famine, pestilence. Young starlets will chop off their hair and do risque dance moves in primetime TV award shows. English boy bands and lame country singers will dominate the box office AND the top 40. THEN! Lamar Odom will appear at Spago's with Catherine Zeta Jones! oh, wait - thought I was in the Entertainment section. Nevermind.
Hey, BTW many have not mentioned that the first license to grow industrial hemp in the US was issued to a CO farmer. No more importing hemp from Canada and Germany. Oil, paper and textiles manufacturing from hemp are going to be a huge boost for our state, WA too, and hemp has no drug effects (unless headaches and coughing are drug effects, side effects maybe.)”
“To all those people whose last argument against marijuana legalization say (said) to me, "Marijuana is bad because it's against the law," I would like to introduce them to Democracy and State Soveregnity (sp). And remind them that the People of Colorado and Washington chose to take on the tasks of trying to turn a Black Market into a Free Market. And remind them that the People of Colorado and Washington are as sensible with their personal use of marijuana as they are with alcohol and cigarettes. We're not talking about illegal narcotics anymore. We're talking about a product that, up until November 2012, cartels pushed and peddled and grew rich, tax-free, while it's users were punished unfairly along lines of class and race, in my state of CO. Any law makers who take on this challenge should be lauded. It is better to fail than not to try.”

“If their argument is "it's bad because it's against the law," please feel free to remind them slavery was legal for a very long time.”
“Good point, but way too hyperbollic. Nowhere in my comment did I mention ending the War on Murder, Rape, or Theft. In fact, this reply advocates the continuation of the War on Stupid. I hope it inspired a teacher somewhere to concentrate on carefully explaining to their students the ineffectivness of comparing apples to oranges, or comparing smoking a joint to ending a life.”
“After the People voted to legalize in Washington and Colorado, the number of local criminals in those states dropped dramatically. And after Eric Holder's announcement, the number of federal criminals dropped as well. In both instances, the abolishment of marijuana prohibition, turned millions of average American adults, once deemed criminals, into law abiding citizens.
Seems to me to be the best results of the War on Drugs since it's inception. I've witnessed first hand the destruction of the Black Market of Marijuana in Denver. Poof! Gone. If a Cartel wants to sell weed in Denver, they're going to have to get a licence, rent a storefront and pay state taxes - all in the light of day - just like Coors, Pfizer and Starbucks.”

“You know,.....I bet that if you made it legal to steal, kill, and Rape, it would darn near empty the prisons........... Is THAT a good idea also?......... Lets just do away with all the laws that require restraint on civilization, and go back to running in packs again. Some areas of our cities are already doing it and getting away with it.”
“It's okay for anyone else to manipulate and hoard money within the labryinthian US Tax Codes. There are many Government/Congress people who have off-shore accounts and "wish I would have thought of that" tax tricks (like donating a cool million to your own charity.)
The differences are 1) They aren't running for President and 2) They at least say and do things that do not insult and denegrate 47% of Americans in the same year you plan to beg for their votes.
Mitt Romney only has one thing to lose, the Election of the President of the United States, and he is doing his best to do just that, LOSE. If he can't keep a tight campaign going for 6 months, how is he going to properly put together a Presidential Staff for 4 years? One that doesn't leak MI6 secret meetings, churn dormant Middle East tensions with one statement, realize it's being secretly video taped, and uses shady tax manuvering and silence when all voters want is the truth.
If you still think Mitt is a good presidential CANIDATE, then 1) you're too young to know what a good one looks like or 2) you've never seen or voted for a good one in your life.
Obama could be all the things they say about him. He could kick my dog and poop in my lilacs and I would still vote for him because Romney doesn't have a Presidential bone in his body, IMHO.”
“Frotz voting for Romney for Prez, he would do much better putting up a "How To Dodge Taxes" website or smthng, pass on some of that Tax Cheat knowledge on to his fellow Americans, help us game the system too. Mitt can be on late night TV in a gold track suit surrounded by Mormon missionaries at a villa in Paris talkin' about "Send me 19.95 and I'll teach you how to be Rich in America! Just follow the 15 steps I've laid out in my new book 'Tax Evasion for Dummies'" Then we can all live in gated communities connected by unlit, unpoliced highways, failing bridges and cracked sidewalks.”
“I am the Great Grover and I say who is and is not King! Please people, ignore the silly man behind the Megadeth tapestry. If Grover is so important in US Politics, why doesn't he run for office? Please, Media, stop poking this scorpion. Maybe he'll crawl back under his rock.”
“German chocolate cake (from a box) bake to directions (9x13 pan). Don't overbake. Poke holes with wooden spoon and pour butterscotch topping and sweetened condensed milk over it. Refriderate and top with whipped cream like a frosting and sprinkle with toffee. Keep in fridge. Very Moist. Mom sez "It's black and white and delicious, thus ObamaCake." Hope you can vegan-ize it. Soy or Hemp milk maybe.

“Mitt's vetting process included finding a milque-toast, wannabe billionaire, economisty-eyed politician with a hint of Tea in his aftershave that he can use, then discard like a moist warm towelette on a First Class flight to visit his money and the jobs he outsourced basking in foreign countries.”

“Paul "Like Watchin' Paint Dryin'" Ryan is Mitt's Boy Wonder.
Boy, I Wonder how Mitt is going to win now.
Why does a camp-pain pick a politician of "great steadiness" from a boiling political cauldron like Wisconsin? Even the Rain is Purple there nowadays. ("I don't care, where we go, I don't care what we do-oo-oo-oo.")”
