“You are exactly right. For example, look at what happened in North Carolina, where for the first time in over a century, all three branches of state government are controlled by the Republicans. And now they are taking out their 100 years' worth of frustration on the whole state, changing voting laws, doing everything they can to limit voting. We Tarheels are doomed.”
“But wait,,, North Korea is next in line. I heard someone from the Administration say the other day that they were "pretty sure" the detonation felt around the world a few months ago was "probably" a nuclear device (meaning "probably" not a large explosion of TNT). Fool me once, fool me twice, fool me once again...”

(CNN, 3/16/13) -- "The United States will deploy additional ground-based missile interceptors on the West Coast as part of efforts to enhance the nation's ability to defend itself from attack by North Korea, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Friday.
Still relatively new in his post, the Pentagon chief told reporters that 14 additional interceptors to be installed by 2017 would bring the total to 44. It is part of a package of steps expected to cost $1 billion, officials said.
"The reason that we are doing what we are doing and the reason we are advancing our program here for homeland security is to not take any chances, is to stay ahead of the threat and to assure any contingency," Hagel said."
“Even as a liberal Democrat, I know that we are going to have to accept some sacrifices in Social Security and Medicare eventually regardless of what the American people "made perfectly clear." I trust President Obama to make a fair deal if Speaker Boehner and his Republicans will cooperate.”

“I don't trust him at all. He lost my confidence when he signed ND*AA into law (among other things he has done). If Obama's plans go through, experts are saying the elderly would lose 3 months of food! Go to Bernie Sanders' website and see the details. Its time for the rich to make sacrifices...not the poor!”
"What they do not expect is for one party, be it Republican or Democrat, to change the rules in the middle of the game so they can make all the decisions while the other party is told to sit down and keep quiet," he said.
Not true at all! What the "other party" wants the Republicans to do is stand up and talk! And talk! And talk! Let them talk until their jaws fall off from talking! In the meantime, the serious Senators can work on actually serving the public and getting things done..”

“Do you REALLY think that's fair to a bunch of Republican old white men with prostate problems? :-)”
“People can call themselves anything they want, but that does not make it true.”

“They are Christian in that they profess belief in the Christian God and in Jesus. They have additional takes on the faith but so, too, do Protestants have different takes from Catholics. All call themselves Christian.”
“Just a suggestion re: how to make plurals. The apostrophe is used to indicate possession, not plurality, although there are some exceptions. So the plural of Latino is Latinos, and the plural of Church is Churches. Don't take offence.”
