“It could be as low as a third if we mothballed a majority of our equipment. Unfortunately, they'd probably cut back the VA budget first, not to mention how many domestic jobs would be lost by stopping the military-industrial complex... seems we had a president warn us about this problem 50 years ago.”
“It was always Global Climate Change, which can result in global warming or, as the not-very-good movie the Day After Tomorrow depicted, you can have super freezing and more intense winters too.
And btw, there has been global warming, and increased storms and winter weather. Just saying.”
“Yeah. Her career will never come to anything. I am just wondering how she keeps getting movie deals since they all seem to be bombs, including An Unfinished Life with Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman. I wish I had the failures she has seemingly been guilty of.”
“The GOP has lower numbers than anyone. And to your point, it is one radical group in one house of Congress that is obstructing. We should have the tea party on the cover, but Boehner is allowing this to happen.”
“Johnny Carson, the man who had no funeral and wanted to live out his life away from the public on his yacht, would so hate the airing of his dirty laundry like this. And I assume Bushkin knows this about him but has still decided to make coin by betraying his relationship.”
“Scalia says "with the explosion in independent electoral spending, the aggregate limits are not "stopping big money in politics."
So he says that because of the SCOTUS Citizens United ruling, there has been an explosion of money in politics so any additional constraints would be fruitless, so we should get rid of all aggregate limits.
“Thanks for echoing the GOP talking point, but it won't work outside of the conservative bubble. No one expects Obama to give in and be held hostage by a minority that threatens to blow up the government because they don't like the legally established law.”

“Are you talking about the law that passed the congress by one vote? Yeah that is what the people wanted when this country was formed. To be held by a group of contemptible corrupt cronies and lying politicians at bay and force to accept something that the majority of the people don't want. Is that the law you are talking about?”
