The GOP and the Artist Who Spoiled Yet Another Christmas

Commented Dec 2, 2010 at 17:16:57 in Arts

“But you know what couldn't possibly spoil Christmas? Cutting off people's unemployment benefits in December.

Thanks GOP, for saving Christmas from art!”

“Their hearts are in the right place.... it's where their brains are that puzzles me.”

Joe Miller, the "Irrational Blogger," and the Right's Even More Irrational View of Free Speech

Commented Oct 19, 2010 at 12:27:12 in Politics

“No one said "this is the most outrageous thing happening in ANY ELECTION in our country EVER!," but I think it is a pretty good example of how angry the Tea Party candidates are to the possibility that they'd ever have to face an uncomfortable question. Yes, all politicians are rude to press sometimes, and they should stop it, but handcuffing someone? That's way, way beyond the pale.”

“You should read up a little bit in the thread where you will see that PinkOne said just that.”

Now That it Made History With Elena Kagan, the Senate Should Do Our Lower Courts Justice

Commented Aug 5, 2010 at 16:29:10 in Politics

“I couldn't agree more. The fact that District Court nominees who have bipartisan support are languishing on the Senate floor is Exhibit A in the GOP's campaign of unmitigated obstruction.”

U.S. Taxpayer-Funded Bank, Under Pressure From Obama Administration, Gives Green Light to Giant Dirty Coal Plant in India

Commented Jul 15, 2010 at 19:41:43 in Green

“This is a great example of the twisted policy we get under our electoral college. If Obama and whoever (Sarah Palin?) just competed to get the highest total in the popular vote, we'd all be much better off.”

The Attempted Corporate Greenwash of Canada's Dirty Tar Sands

Commented Mar 1, 2010 at 17:46:14 in Green

“That oil sands ad drove me nuts. It's basically the only thing I hate about Canada.”

pinkibus on Mar 3, 2010 at 16:17:59

“Drew;

There is another thing you probably hate about Canada but don't realize you do. Stephen Harper, the prime minister of Canada, is a clone of Dubya and hence the gung ho Canadian attitude towards the tar sands.”

Poll: Liberals and Conservatives Strongly Disagree with "Citizens United" - Americans Want Limits on Corporate Cash in Elections

Commented Feb 19, 2010 at 15:14:54 in Politics

“Also, there are only a few people who can actually spend even a million dollars on an election. There are hundreds of organizations who can spend exponentially more. It's a totally different scale.”

Poll: Liberals and Conservatives Strongly Disagree with "Citizens United" - Americans Want Limits on Corporate Cash in Elections

Commented Feb 19, 2010 at 15:13:54 in Politics

“Kind of. But those are the difficult free speech implications that the Constitution is there to protect.

If I want to spend all my own money telling printing up signs telling people to support (or oppose) a candidate, I think that's my right. I might feel really strongly about it! If ExxonMobil, on the other hand, wants to spend a billion dollars from its corporate treasury, I think that's different.

I'm a person. The CEO of Exxon is a person. We disagree, but we have a right to free speech. But the corporation itself is a profit seeking center, not a person. It can't vote. It can't run for office. And it doesn't deserve the right to spend unlimited money to influence an election.”

“It's really becoming a problem that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to accomplish anything at all. The filibuster is an important tool, but this has gotten crazy.”

“I like how for the right wing, being pro-choice is the same as having a "radical abortion rights background."”

“BSERIUS......Naral and pro abortion is radical to even the radicals”
