Senate Republicans Block More Obama Nominees

Senate Republicans Block More Obama Nominees

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 23:11:30 in Politics

“Should the GOP ever gain the majority in the Senate, will they change the rule and go back to the 60??? I think not! I think they will enjoy it all the more. Of course the American people would have to suffer mass insanity to vote the GOP in the majority ever again.”

“I apprehend you might want to reevaluate.

Americans love the Republican Party.

“Communities should be able to legislate No Carry cities, like the old West. Check your guns before going into "Town" and pick them up on your way out. Anyone caught with gun in town/city should be shot with said gun immediately. No violation of 2nd there...”

“Congratulations!
Your thoughts travel at the speed of light.  That's because they are entirely mass-less.  In fact, you yourself are a mass-less thinker, I would say. 
Obviously, you zipped entirely by my reply, and traveling at c you didn't even perceive it.”

“That would/will make absolutely NO difference whatever to the amount of energy/matter. It's only a conversion of one form to another. If energy in any form were CREATED, that would make a difference, but that would be a fundamental violation of the known laws of physics.”

“This is treason! This appropriation is mindless! Where's the outrage?? Get out of that sh*thole country now and don't look back. Bin Laden is DEAD! Mission accomplished!”

Bizmark on Dec 8, 2013 at 17:15:29

“Mission accomplished once Pakistan is in the hands of sane leaders. As long as they crazies have nuclear weapons they need to watched, not only from DC. Afghanistan is a listening post and needs to be an ally. Sometimes you have pay for 'friendship. Call it an arranged marriage. As for the article, see what Hiruu has to say above, that comment is consistent w/ common sense. Easy to fly is only one point, consider also the complexity and parts necessary to maintain a more sophisticated machine.”

“Foreign aid is less than 2% of the budget. The military is 25%? We're trying to catch flies with vinegar. We spent $100 billion a year for the last twelve years to create an enemy in Afghanistan. A country with a GDP of $14 billion a year. I bet we could have made a lifelong friend and saved thousands of American lives for $10 billion a year. Try to imagine the good we could have done with the $4 TRILLION we spent on the war an terror over the last twelve years.”

“If there's gonna be a fight and shut down let it be over the excessive tax giveaways the GOP won't address. Make them defend all the loopholes and subsidies in their overt attempt to give more to the 1%. They'll lose big time once the voters know the truth. Let the working class know they pay the taxes not collected. Has nothing to do with wealth redistribution. That's all GOP spin.”
