Steve Stockman To Challenge John Cornyn For U.S. Senate Seat

Steve Stockman To Challenge John Cornyn For U.S. Senate Seat

“What's the difference here? They are both far-right. Perhaps Cornyn works some. That's anathema to TeaBullies because elected officials are not suppose to work or accomplish anything. They are there to destroy the safety net, women's rights, abortion, marriage equality etc. Everything else is just sit back and do nothing, and they think that's good. Talk about living off government handouts and not working. They probably ought to get unemployment benefits because they are not working. In fact, we should pay them with vouchers, food stamps, unemployment benefits– and see how it feels to live on the edges, from day-to-day. It should at least be part of their orientation of new members. Live like the poor, struggle like the middle class does not to slide into property.”

“The same people who watched the live show. I guess Netflix must have information that they use their service. I wouldn't have guessed it though, since most conservatives are completely against having any sort of fun or enjoying life at all.”

“Check your history as to why LBJ did not run again. It was because of the Vietnam War. Not the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The passage of the Act was the defining moment that changed the Dem and Rep parties to what the parties are today. Keep in mind that the Republican Party of today has nothing that relates to Abraham Lincoln. As far as the Congress and LBJ is concerned, his impact and influence on Congress at that time was, and remains, unprecedented. LBJ changed the Dem Party forever. When the Dixiecrats left the Dem Party because of the Civil Rights Act, that changed both parties to what they are today. Even though LBJ lost enormous support because of Vietnam, he never lost support of anyone but those racist members of both parties for his domestic policies. His influence separate from Vietnam is something the Dem Party is still proud of. And, keep in mind that his election for a full term that followed his completion of JFK's term, was the greatest presidential landslide in US history. His opponent was Barry Goldwater, who only carried his state, Arizona, and five Southern states. LBJ did not run for another term because he was just plain burned out from the Vietnam War and the opposition to it. LBJ created the War on Poverty, and it was successful. In contrast, the Republican Party has a policy of a War on the Poor. Quite different.”

“I have never voted for a Republican. China's cities today look more like US or European cities during the Industrial Revolution. Sure, we have some environmental regulations that make a difference. But a lot has been stripped way. The GOP wants a new kind of slavery, in China or here, doesn't matter. Our retail and restaurant workers are the current slaves in the US. Those dormitories are for today's slaves in China. And of course Romney loved them.”

“The US take the lead? Is that really a serious possibility? We have never taken the lead on the environment. We have been an obstructionist country, only agreeing to the bare minimum, if that. We did not sign the Kyoto Agreement. We use most of the fossil fuels on earth. We refuse to really go all out for wind, solar, biofuels etc. The problem with Global Warming is we are part of the problem and refuse to be part of the solution.”

cruzing9382 on Dec 7, 2013 at 02:24:04

“Our cities don't look like China's so clearly we are doing something right.  I didn't say we were taking the lead in stopping Global Warming.  I said we CAN take the lead but we need the cooperation of the Global Community of which China is one.  If the GOP have their way, we will be looking like China in a few years not just in air pollution, they want to get rid of the EPA, but in their business model as shown by the slide show.  Romney loved China's business model and especially their dormitories for workers.  That's the GOP's bright future for the American people.  Vote for anyone other than a Republican.”

“Keep this in mind. She's a Social Worker, was in the class before me at Bryn Mawr College School of Social Work. And was once the Exec Director of a health center for women. She is firmly Pro-Choice. Knows exactly what it is like to have pickets surrounding her office building and needing to walk through that crowd to get to the front door. Also, what it is like to get death threats for doing that job. That's walking the talk. And, you better believe that the wing-nuts will use this to attack her.”

“No, only the rural middle of Pennsylvania. Most of the population is in the Eastern & Western parts of the state. Alabama is in the middle, with the least amount of the citizens, but the most land. BUT, those folks are why PA has some awful policies. Gerrymandering made this situation worse. Most of PA is not Alabama. Schwartz is in the Philadelphia area.”

“She really is not a Blue Dog, and her been reliably supportive of the Obama policies. Although, I agree that her past position on Social Security was wrong. To me what is important is that she heard from her colleagues and her constituents and changed her position. She is my Congress rep and it matters most that she listens and adjusts her positions. She us 15% ahead of Gov Corbett at this point.”

“Not at all!!! Might be the worse rated governor in the country right now. All Dem primary candidates are 15-20% ahead of him in the polls. He basically has destroyed most of Governor Rendell's educational, tax, water safety, air quality regs, health care etc achievements. Two days ago the entire Southeast corner of the state had an Air Quality Alert at Orange. Keep in mind that he was the Attorney General who did nothing about the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky sexual assault acts, 1-2 years ahead of the public exposure. He is very low on the humanity scale. Just a disgrace. A real piece of work. Can't wait to vote him out.”

“They were only rehearsing anyway - it's not like they cancelled their show. This is so ridiculous that media has stooped to such pettiness and that this adult (supposedly) didn't take this as a teaching moment - but rather (as someone else on here said) how to whine about first world problems. I'm sure those ballerina's aren't going to bed hungry tonight like many children in the US.”
