“Thomas "the Crank Engine" Tancredo ran out of track last time by 15 points- he'll totally derail the next time.”

Pyrum on Dec 7, 2013 at 16:34:38

“He ran in 2010 with the American Constitutional party, and did very well for a third party candidate. He'll do better this time if he wins the republican nomination and runs as a republican.”

“Finally you inch towards acknowledging that your original post was over broad, which was the point at which an adult conversation could start, but you have to whine once more about the question.  You also have completely ignored pirx's posts about the appropriations process..  Here endeth the lesson,”

“My original post stands.  Hopefully you can understand my analogy and the needledink gotcha response you gave.”

“Rush has to distract his stump jumping audience from how his heroes Reagan and Cheney regarded Mandela.”

Domingo Tavella on Dec 7, 2013 at 20:47:11

“Rush's mobs think Mandela was a NASCAR driver, my friend.”

DoctorGreeves on Dec 7, 2013 at 15:56:49

“Exactly. Rush doesn't seem to have much to say about our hero, "Throw Away The Key Cheney," does he?”

“Men who desire peace and equality will always be demonized. Reagan and Cheney vilified Nelson Mandela. J. Edgar Hoover vilified Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the British government vilified Mahatma Gandhi.”

“Who left their country better off? Hint: it wasn't Baroness Thatcher.  Who staved off a potential civil war and bloodbath.  Same hint.  Who had half of their nation wishing the ceremonial firing team would shoot at the casket instead of over it, just in case?  NOW the answer is Baroness Thatcher.”

AW1952 on Dec 7, 2013 at 17:58:34

“Margaret Thatcher was Ronald Reagan's partner in defeating Communism and the Soviet Union. (I'm sure you were sad to see Communism go down the tubes, but the truth is, the whole world is better off. In addition, she led the government to divest British Steel, British Telecom and British Rail.) All were vestiges of Socialism and thereby improved the country of she was Prime Minister.

I'm not disparaging Mandela. I only point out a very obvious difference in standard by Obama with respect to two former heads of state. His only motivation had to have been his racial prejudice, to which he is not rightfully entitled as President of the United States.”

chanahan on Dec 7, 2013 at 13:10:19

“I won't answer gotcha questions.  Simply because a person is against deficit spending obviously and logically does not mean they must be against deficits in every instance.  Its like someone saying they are against killing, but supports war to defend the country.  That is how adults talk, not the silly gotcha questions.”

“No but perhaps a wine board?  If you can can converse on an adult level you will be treated as such.  You got beat up as a kid on the playground for saying stupid things and to this day you can't figure out why because what you said was technically correct, didn't you?”

“As an undergraduate studying history I learned to be skeptical of the "great man/woman' view of history.  Nelson Mandela is one of the exceptions to that skepticism- the world would be much different and not for the better without Nelson Mandela's role in it.”

“People who can't back up what they post often don't.  Your refusal to acknowledge that there are indeed times that deficit spending is a good thing or at least necessary is what is preventing a discussion of when deficit spending should occur and when it should not, not my raising of the question.”

“If it were practically possible for anyone who was not wealthy to be elected to congress these days, I would be much more concerned about the problem you mention.  The vast majority of members of Congress have been wealthy since the founding of the nation.”

Phasnerd on Dec 5, 2013 at 22:57:49

“What you say is true enough. Although even RollCall reports that less than 1/2 of congress can be counted as millionaires. over 45%l ess than 50

My point remains that a minimum wage congress insures only people who do not care about the money, only what they can do with the power. Or those who get their money from interests who need are buying the power for themelves.

We now get the occasional working person in congress. It is not typical but it happens. There is nothing to be gained by making a job qualification that you be independently wealthy, or in the employ of same.

Or to state my middle ground with you. We have enough of the money interest, lets leave a pin hole for the rest to at least try.”

“Since Representative Barton doesn't believe in a minimum wage, and since  the GOTP does not believe in collective bargaining for government employees salaries, ad since they believe that every employee has  bargaining power equal to that of employers (even large institutional ones like multinational corporations)-let's have them bargain with their constituents for their pay and set their pay through annual elections.  The options for voters would be  a. the minimum wage, b. the median wage for their district, or c. the salary they propose for themselves.  
The ball is in Barton's court- let's see if he's up to the challenge.”

Liberal Christian on Dec 5, 2013 at 18:30:40

“The forth alternative should be that he works for free. You know, that free market that they have been touting for generations. After all, he should actually have to work to get paid. Just saying no, or making stupid remarks does not mean he's working”

Phasnerd on Dec 5, 2013 at 18:21:13

“You may want to count the number of millionaires in congress before you enact this. Add to it the growing number of self-financed Billionaires looking to buy their election to Senate or House and you have the perfect rule to insure that no mere mortal will ever again be found in either chamber.

Lefty Liberal on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:58:36

“Better yet, let's make Congressional pay equal to the minimum wage. They have to punch a time clock and only get paid for time they spend on the floor of the House/Senate or in committees. Make them have to actually work for their money.”
