“We can only thank the Republican party for that debacle. The party that cannot admit to making mistakes will continue to make them again and again.
Of course, we can only blame to voters in the end. Democrats need to look at what is going on and get involved registering so many new voters from the minority communities that we send every single Republican where they belong...the private sector.”
“If I thought the people at Big Earl's were capable of changing, I would say go down there and patronize them, but this is Texas, and believe me, they will not see the light. The ones that are bigoted will remain so, and it is to future generations to break the cycle of bible based bias. Here is the logic of a Texan. God created the world and everything in it, some people call it creationism, but we Texans prefer to call it "Intelligent Design", because we know God is like, super smart. You want to know how we can prove we didn't evolve from Monkey's? Because in his wisdom, God created a banana to fit perfectly in our hands!
This is the mentality you deal with in Texas. Think about it, Texas elected Rick "I forgot" Perry as Governor, three times!”
“Republican Politicians should try taking a break from fundraising and actually spend some time doing something new...like reading a bill, otherwise known as doing their jobs. Better yet, just go into the private sector and leave governance to those that actually aren't trying to make sure government is the problem.”
“There are battles that need to be fought, and one's that don't.
This is an uncomfortable way of getting attention, as it is so easily concealed, but what is the person who designed these swimsuits trying to say? I think they are trying to say, this is the truth, and this is who I am, and I would like to be upfront about it. If it turns you off, I'd rather know now than later, when you think that I have no defect at all.
Of course, there are many other parts of a woman that are commonly made to look better than they are in reality. Makeup to hide imperfections of the skin, wigs or extensions to augment the hair, false eyelashes, hair colorants, false fingernails, high heels, and of course, boob jobs, tummy tucks, face lifts, nose jobs, and liposuction.
If you ask me, we have gone somewhat too far into fantasy land, where no one can just be themselves. It is not enough to be a woman, now you have to be a perfect woman, and that my friends is a bar too high for anyone to be expected to jump over.”

“Not me, I don't go in for any of those things, except for some light makeup if I go somewhere other than the grocery store. Of course, I'm 58 years old, and I feel entitled to not have to put myself through any of that. Life is short, and I'm not going to spend what's left of it buying into the mass marketing ploys of the beauty industry.”
“Gee Glenn, are you sure you weren't the rape victim? Seems quite odd that this story never came out before.
And, you sure seem to be obsessed with how often the President plays Golf.
Here is the problem Glenn. You are a pathological liar and a sociopath, and everyone knows it. So, you can cry all you want, but it won't make anyone believe anything you have to say about anything. I would have to check for myself if you claimed that the sun would come up tomorrow morning. That is how much credibility you don't have.”
“Guns are the problem. The fact that so many people think they aren't is the reason they still are the problem. How many more American lives need to be lost before you get a clue?
Did it ever occur to you that before the invention of the gun, there were zero murders by gun?”
Forestwildcat on May 27, 2014 at 08:54:55
“Knives, spears, cars, cooking appliances, etc... it doesn't matter. Hollywood and the video game industry spew out instructions daily and too ignore this fact is too have your head buried deeply in the sand”
Background checks, and making it against the law to sell a gun to a mentally ill person does work. The problem is, people like you think if one person murders someone in spite of the law, the law doesn't work, and people like me think that if just one life is saved because of the law, then the law did work.”
“Only the Republican appointed Justices disagreed, the other 4, as well as the dozens of Justices before 2008 agreed with me. The Roberts Supreme Court is going to go down as one of the most corrupt group of Justices in the history of the Court.
What do you imagine the Founding Fathers meant by "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
Just 27 words, and Scalia chose to completely ignore the first 13 of those words, so he could deliver to the gun industry that which they wanted..everybody gets to buy guns.
Obviously, at 27 words total, you can't accuse the founding fathers of being long winded in this amendment, so you have to ask yourself a question. If the original intent of this amendment was, that every person has a constitutional right to own and carry a gun, as Scalia claims it does, then why did they put in the first 13 of those words regarding a well regulated Militia? The fact is, the whole justification for the amendment is contained in the first 13 words, and those are the words that Scalia chooses to ignore.”
“Gosh, with that logic, we should just get rid of stop signs then. With all the stop signs they have put on every street in California, at every intersection, some guy actually broke the law and ran through every stop sign that he came to, so, all those signs are obviously a waste of effort, right?”
Sabrina Gray on May 26, 2014 at 05:56:30
“Never said that. I am saying how about we try something that actually works, instead of piling on more laws that don't work.”
“The Congress is already complicit. Now is the time that they take a stand against those who have paid for their loyalty, namely the Gun Industry, and turn that loyalty to the people of this country that pay their salaries. Enough already. The Founding Fathers never intended that mentally ill people be allowed access to guns, in fact, they never intended that every person should be allowed to own and carry a gun.
They intended well regulated militia's to have the authority to keep and bear arms, and they intended that the right to form those well regulated militia's would never be taken away from the states. The idea was to protect towns and cities, and in so doing, protect the individual.

“Guns are not just to protect people. Whether you think so or not, there are a lot of people who feed their families with guns and they don't kill people with them.”

“The Supreme Court disagrees with you, based on their 2008 decision.”
“And yet it seems that there never is a single candidate that does not have to measure up to a test of his or her faith in the media. The answer is simple. The question about faith was meant to be off limits, therefore, every single time a Republican questions someone else's belief in God, they demonstrate their disregard for the Constitution, and every single time they lay claim to their deep faith, they end up making a mockery of the Constitution.”
“Anyone else wonder why, if God created everything from a flea to a dinosaur, he had to dictate the books of the bible to humans, and trust them to choose what gospels to include in the "Good Book"? Was it the paper, or the ink, or the calligraphy, or perhaps the cover that were beyond God's abilities?
It seems to me that if God wanted to reveal his word to man in book form, he would at least create the first one himself, then hand it to some prophet and say...copy this book word for word, and don't change a thing, or else.”

“And, he wouldn't have it so full of errors, doncha think?”
“According to Creationists, claiming we share a a common ancestor with Monkeys is blasphemy. That being said, doesn't it seem awfully ironic that those same Creationists chose to use the shape and "non slip grip" of a banana to prove "Intelligent Design", considering the fact that the banana just happens to be one of the favorite foods of Monkeys, and it fits in their hands perfectly too?”
“It's not a lottery, it's all up to Democrats, and if I lived in Kentucky, I would be talking to every Republican I could to talk some sense into them about how their Representative isn't representing them at all, and hasn't for the last 5 years.”
“He is also a major reason that the Republican Party has done nothing since Obama was elected but obstruct recovery, block job creation, and try like hell to keep Kentuckians from having Healthcare. I know Republican voters are not the brightest bulbs on the Christmas Tree, but even they know that keeping reelecting Mitch McConnell would only serve the interests of Corporations, not them.”
“Don't worry, McConnell has already set the rules of the debate so he can cancel out on it. She will want it to be public, he will say no, then he will claim she was afraid to debate him.
You are going to lose huge, so you might as well wipe the smirk off your face now.”

“She should still proceed without him. Put up a cardboard cut out of Mitch and you'll get the same effect which is nothing.”

“McConnell has already spent millions to win the primary. Grimes is the toughest candidate against whom he has run, and he is unpopular in the state. He can tie Grimes to the Obama administration all he wants, but he was the obstructionist in the Senate, not Grimes.”
“Democrat who can read more than one article here. Keep holding onto your beliefs tight.
You have it so bad that you align yourself with a party that cannot win an election, therefore you have absolutely no chance of changing anything. Don't let that stop you though...keep it up.
Let's try this. You show me documentation that isn't quoted from Fox News, or some other right wing website that actually shows historical data that raising the minimum wage caused a loss of jobs. I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding it, considering the fact that you can read, and you don't just believe things because people who want labor cheap tell you to be afraid.”

“Oops. Last line should read.....
Surely you are smart enough to actually read what the basis of their score is and understand it does not prove higher job growth at all. No correlation or causation.”
turkeyhunter1960 on May 21, 2014 at 09:23:19
“Good for you. I do not know if changing the minimum wage will increase jobs or cost jobs. Neither do you.
I do know that this article in question, which is what I commented on, does not prove anything. It does not even show what the headline or a cursory read says it does. It is a piece of red meat thrown out by HP to gin up both sides.
My point was not if it was right or wrong, only that it is a BS piece of "journalism". Surely you are smart enough to actually read what the basis of their score is and understand it does prove higher job growth at all. No correlation or causation.”
