“So where are all the judgmental liberals that blasted he family that supposedly stiffed this woman? You not only attacked the family but used it as a pulpit to vocalize your antipathy towards Christians in general. I haven't seen many posts taking those odious comments back.”

“He breaks the law and you feel sorry for him, how nice. I guess the law only applies to people whose political views you agree with.”

deepthicket on Dec 3, 2013 at 12:30:28

“Astonishing naivete. The "law", as bought and paid for by the Kochs and their ilk, only applies to those unfortunate enough to lack sufficient billions to twist it, turn it, buy it, sell it, and make it jump up and down at their command. When you have bought and paid for the judges you keep on your shelf, I guess you can orchestrate an attack of the official US healthcare website with impunity while simultaneously persecuting an individual for doing the same thing to your own website. It's obvious whose political views you are a thrall to.”

“No, the law only applies to those who do not have the money to defend. When does the law ever apply to people like the Koch brothers? People like the Koch brothers get in trouble so they spend a million or two million to make it go away and still have the private yacht to sell off to the private villa in the islands. The financial burden on this guy is equivalent to a 100 billion fine on the Koch brothers. He will lose or has already lost everything for going against them. He would have suffered less if he had thrown a brick through a window of their posh offices. Sometimes, I think throwing some bricks is what it will take to get Washington to listen to anyone but the very wealthy.”

“and you don't think that the judge presiding over the case had anything to do with upholding the Koch-law that says that you have to pay restitution 36 times higher than damages done, right? Go buy some Angel Soft toilet paper to help poor Koch Industries get over the devastating loss of $5000 .”

“What he did was akin to black kids sitting at the counter of an all white restaurant in the south in the 1950s. It is a form of non violent protest and the punishment should fit the crime not cripple him with debt for the rest of his life. If you are naive enough to think the Koch brothers have not broken laws to amass their fortune then shame on you.”

“Yes of course we feel sorry for him. The damage he causes was not anywhere near $180,000. The government themselves said his damage was only $5,000. So yes, when justice is not done... I feel sorry for them. He's not saying the law doesn't apply to him. So grow up and learn some empathy.”

“No, what progressives despise are those who suck the life out of otherwise successful collaborative enterprises by draining them of capital for their personal use instead of pushing the development envelope with that capital. What we hate even more are people who do that and then squeal and scream that they're being persecuted because the rest of us want them to pay tax rates comparable to those paid during the period of the fastest economic growth in American history.”

“Plenty of Conservatives have problems with "big pharma". Conservatives and Liberals alike are ticked off at the FDA. Most big entertainers are in the 1%, and get lots of backing from liberals, and their philanthropic endeavors.
But thanks for adding your junk to the mix, gives insight as to the divide in our Nation, and where we are. More negative labels are needed for those that promote divide, and forget solutions. No wonder the people that "serve" us act the way they do - just trying to keep the "constituents" happy.”

“Slavery in itself did not help build this country. It was cheap labor exploited by the south, just like they are doing with the undocumented workers. That is why they are against immigration and nothing has been done in all these years. What Reagan did by giving amnesty to people was the wrong way to do it. We need a path to citizenship. They would have to actually start paying them a better wage and taxes.”

“What does Harry Reid really think about filibuster?

"It's part of the fabric of this institution we call the Senate. It was well-known in colonial legislatures before we became a country, and it's an integral part of our country's 214-year history. The first filibuster in the United States Congress happened in 1790. It was used by lawmakers from Virginia and South Carolina who were trying to prevent Philadelphia from hosting the first Congress. Since then, the filibuster has been employed hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of times. It's been employed on legislative matters, it's been employed on procedural matters relating to the president's nominations for Cabinet and sub-Cabinet posts, and it's been used on judges for all those years. One scholar estimates that 20 percent of the judges nominated by presidents have fallen by the wayside, most of them as a result of filibusters. Senators have used the filibuster to stand up to popular presidents, to block legislation, and, yes, even, as I've stated, to stall executive nominees. "”

Then-Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell, May 2005
"The majority in the Senate is prepared to restore the Senate's traditions and precedence to ensure that regardless of party, any president's judicial nominees, after full and fair debate, receive a simple up-or-down vote on the Senate floor. It's time to move away from ... advise and obstruct and get back to advise and consent."
Sen. John Cornyn in a New York Times letter to the editor, March 2005

“These are challenges we all want to meet and problems we all want to solve, even if we do not always agree on how to do it. But if the right of free and open debate is taken away from the minority party and the millions of Americans who ask us to be their voice, I fear the partisan atmosphere in Washington will be poisoned to the point where no one will be able to agree on anything. That does not serve anybody's best interest, and it certainly is not what the patriots who founded this democracy had in mind. We owe the people who sent us here more than that. We owe them much more.

Guess who? That's right, President Barak Obama.”

“This is the single most significant vote any one of us will cast in my 32 years in the Senate. I suspect the Senator would agree with that. We should make no mistake. This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power grab by the majority party, propelled by its extreme right and designed to change the reading of the Constitution, particularly as it relates to individual rights and property rights. It is nothing more or nothing less.
