“I would challenge you to find a major corporation run by someone in the "1%" that has not gotten that big through some kind of shady dealings. Part of the problem with American Capitalism (oh, sorry, "the free market economy") is that once you reach a certain level of business, you either play dirty like everyone else who's already established there, or risk getting driven out of business. "Can't lie in the mud without getting dirty", as they say (or maybe I just say that, either way, it's relevant).”
“What do you mean, "Won't get away with"? What do you think they've been DOING the last four years? >.”

“Exposing "themselves" for who they are - that's what they have been doing (whether they realize it or not) - and now it is all out in the open; I love open-ness; it brings light to darkness; it brings things to the surface that is done behind closed doors - in quite rooms; it brings the american people to pay attention to what is actually going on - under the false pretenses that "it" is being done for "them" when it is not; boy those greedy one percenters are "brutal" - did electing the first black President - do this to them?”

“No he is not down like they want him to be, they throwing everything in but the kitchen sink and he is still cool as a cucumber. They have worked hard at it but it's only making them look really bad”
“You've got that all backward. It's the Conservatives, who want to gut Planned Parenthood, who are anti-parent. They're pro-pregnancy, but as soon as that kid pops out, they want nothing to do with it or the ones who created it (unless they're rich, of course) and are perfectly happy to let it starve, suffer, and die in abject poverty. You should really do some research before you sound like a fool.”
“Why stop at Birth Certificates? Clearly all politicians are such weaselly, fraudulent, and underhanded creatures that they should all be required to make full disclosure of every aspect of their private life that could potentially affect their judgement and/or decision-making. That means everyone should get to see their Birth Certificates, Marriage Licenses (and Divorce paperwork, of course), school transcripts, credit ratings... hell, why stop there? I want to see medical records! After all, some diseases can affect mental ability and objective reasoning skills, gotta make sure they're not being influenced by biological factors! How about every STD test they've ever gotten, to verify they're not insane from Syphilis or distracted from battling some life-threatening illness that might distract them from the legislative process? What the hell, let's just do a full DNA work-up on every lawmaker to ensure they're not predisposed to some genetic abnormality that could suddenly kill them in office (politicians are an investment of the people, after all), as well as routine urine analyses to ensure compliance with all national drug laws, and comprehensive body cavity searches, since obviously, if our politicians need this level of verification and scrutiny, they can't be trusted not to be smuggling narcotics or other contraband!”

“Don't forget unfettered access to their smartphones, tablets, and computers...”
“Why don't you recount a horrifically traumatic event from your past and see how conscientious of your word choice you are in the moment of retelling while trying to maintain professionalism and dignity?”
“If she was treated for rape trauma, it would be confidential in her medical records. Like many victims, she may not have reported it, or there could have been insufficient evidence to open an investigation. Especially with juvenile cases, they often don't publicly release such information due to the sensitive and traumatic nature of the incidents.”
“Next up on the Republican Comedy Tour, Santorum regales us with the amusing narrative about the time him and his Frat brothers gave a bunch of sorority girls roofies and then paid for their abortions and silence, since none of them knew who the fathers actually were.
“They can't. It's why this Bill is going to get thrown out as soon as it gets challenged in Court.
This is more B.S. Right-Wing fanatical posturing during an Election Year. They have to keep us occupied with things that have already been fought and won in the past so we can't actually move forward into the future. Remember the whole "Social Security" debate last time around?”

“So it's another situation where the only winners are the lawyers.”
“Well... See, every four years, we have these things called "elections", in which people (who haven't been disenfranchised or otherwise screwed out of their votes) cast these things called "ballots", specifying who they think should be the next President. Once the ballots all get counted, the Electoral College casts their votes, and soon we have a new Leader of the Free World!*
*Unless your name is George W. Bush, then you stage a bureaucratic coup and get appointed by your father's friends in the Supreme Court.”

“Wow, does your back pedal machine have rear view mirrors, or do you just wing it?”
“That's cute. Limbaugh's freedom of speech is sacrosanct, but TruthfullyYours needs to keep their nasty mouth shut.
Being a "respectable lady" and also apparently a Right-Winger, can we assume that you're barefoot and pregnant in a kitchen somewhere?
Man, I love this freedom of speech thing!”

“again, i just responded to n lee and asked her if she has any idea what a d.... is. what's so nasty about it? would i rather have called her s... for her opinion? just like what rusho did?
true, i love my freedom of speech as well. perhaps more so than most people. i gave a few years of my young life defending it just so you and every americans blathering on this site have the chance to, well, blather inane opinions.”
