“(Although your closing question was clearly rhetorical,) Y-E-S !! It is outrageous that even the so-called "liberal media" pander to cultural relativism. When/wherever there are two opposing opinions, they are presumed on equal footing. Except when one is held by a bully.”

“A friendly correction: "...Obama so thoroughly TRUMPED Romney in electoral votes, but also in popular votes."”

“Please, put Trump into a time-warp, so he can get Al Gore democratically elected back in 2000, and so he can forewarn us of 9/11, prevent the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, evacuate all of Katrina-devastated population in time, ..... and—most importantly—SO HE CAN STAY IN TIME-WARP FOREVER.”

Top Ten Reasons Romney Lost

Commented Nov 7, 2012 at 15:45:26 in Politics

“Spot-on for the first sentence. As for the second sentence, "Because we can," to quote O'Brien from Orwell's "1984." You can stash away only so much money... At first, the 1%-ers may crave the high digits in their off-shore bank accounts and the legal hide-and-seek with IRS, "The Man." Soon enough, however, they realize that its POWER over other people that they really crave.

The more pertinent question is, why did 206 electoral votes' worth of voters vote for that.”

What Does a Vote for a GOP Candidate in November Really Mean?

“I could so totally agree with you were it not for the fact that they are screwing it up for you and me too! Oh, and I wouldn't hold my breath for them to understand 2nd grade...”

“Things are not perfect now, as it takes time to clean a huge mess. This does not mean it will do us well to screw ourselves further by voting repubs and teabaggers (back) into power. It will take us right back to the policies that got us where we are now.”

“The gist of your assessment (and rancor over no real change) is quite astute. The problem is the "180" in your penultimate sentence: Turning back will solve nothing. Real change will happen only if the back-and-forth (linear) politicking is abandoned for truly independent thought. The current administration still has 2+ years to show real evidence of real change...”

“You ARE right on this one: we were headed on this path for at least 20 of the 28 years (not to turn this into a lesson in history) of previous administrations.”

“Dear "Soul of the Earth",

To answer your question: "Hope springs eternal," and to hope you always may. Just as you may hope to win that MegaMillions jackpot. Memes, especially the ones that are based on the "pie in the sky"... h-o-p-e, die hard. Understanding reality all to often requires the willing attention and comprehension at levels beyond those of a 3rd-grader... with ADHD, and the sound-bite (thought-byte?) programming of mainstream TV ensures that the majority of the voters never develop beyond that level. Corporate America needs sheeple, so it breeds sheeple.

And you thought 1984 never happened?”

“Hello???

We have ALL allowed the previous administration 8 (eight! EIGHT!) full years to run our train and send it down the ravine that turned into a cliff. And now everyone criticizes the current administration because they cannot save the passengers and the train, bring it back from the abyss onto the rails where it was a decade ago... oh, and have a brand new bridge in place so we do not go down the same ravine-turned cliff... what, in a mere 2 years, with the Repluglithans sabotage and "Independent" weapons of mass distraction at all levels???

Hello???”

ladynay on Sep 10, 2010 at 20:23:44

“Wow, seems they had no problem stepping in and quickly bailing out wallstreet, banks and auto companies. That sure seemed like fast action to me. In my own state, Boxer wrote back to me that 97,000 responded about the bailout, of that number 91,000 were against it. This was information before she voted for the bailout. Not only did she speak for the minority, she had no problem admitting it. The arrogance of these people has no end.

Quick action comes when there is an urgant need to fix yourself. The middle class is not as urgent to those in office, of wither party.”

“Spot-on! The problem is, however, very old: "Men willingly believe what they wish." -- G.I. Caesar

2 millennia later, "albanyconservaitve", for one (and there are plenty others) believes fervently in "trickle-down Reaganomics", and no amount of cold hard fact will convince him that he's been lying to himself.

You know, it must be acknowledged, President Reagan was indeed The Big Gipper (he played one in a movie, but that was peanuts compared to his later act). Gipped so many of us, and look for how long and how well!”

DarcieRN on Sep 10, 2010 at 11:01:01

“Right, TantrisDN! "...believe what they wish"............despite hard proof to the contrary.
We've always said it, and I'll say it again: when a person is lying to her/himself about motivation, facts won't get in the way. EVERYTHING will be seen as "evidence" that supports the delusion.
Throughout American history, this hidden motivation/playing loose with data has been a tactic of the corporatists/royalists, backed by the likes of the Koch brothers, using scared puppets who think they are in a "grass roots" movement. It's not random: it happens every time a Democrat is elected president; the profiteers really do not want to have to make safe products (via regulation) or pay fair taxes.
We know the motivation. And unfortunately, it can't be fixed.

To fight the increased disparity of opportunity and assets, we have to keep on keeping on. We can't get depressed because the drones of the rich are so loud (their masters do, after all, own the networks and press!). I may not be pleased with President Obama making deals with the enemies of humankind, or with the Senate constantly giving in, but must keep the alternative scenario in mind: what if Obama had not won? What if the Dems were not the majority? What will happen if we don't bring out the vote in November?

This chamber of horrors article is a great reminder, a wake up call.
Things could be much worse. Very scary indeed.”
