“I have nothing against Mandela but I'm tired of the politically correct in the USA exagerrating his importance. It's almost de rigueur for every politician/entertainer/athlete to publicly state how "inspired" they were by this man no matter how insincere. And I'm also tired of having the news dominated by this death. There are much more important things happening around the world.”

“You are more important; we should focus on you instead. Mandela: no big deal; spent 27 years in prison and left prison with NO bitterness; spearheaded a liberation movement in a country that the world eventually supported; he is an icon. Yeah, why should we spend the past 4 days honoring him and celebrating his legacy….so lame!”
“OK. I hear this stuff from conservoposters time and time again. Anyone to the left of Ted Cruz and Richard Koch is a comie, yadda, yadda, yadda.
But are any of these purported "commies" going to nationalize all industry? Set up gulags? Institute single party 'elections"? Create secret police that drag folks away in the night? I know that real Communism all but died over 20 years ago, but for heaven's sakes, there are books you know. And still plenty of people alive who remember what it was like to live under Soviet-style governance. Like my family (I'm Polish-American). Can you keep your critiques to accurate comparisons, at least for the sake of those who suffered under the real commies?”
“hahaha it's a gut buster, isn't it? Increased child mortality, up to 35% of all species going extinct, complete alteration of the plant zones, economic disasters every time there's another storm surge bigger than the last one, tens of millions of people displaced. It's a real joke.”

“didn't expect anything else in response from a "ME AND MINE" mentality. but that is fine, "the proof is in the pudding" as the old saying goes come November 2014. Thanks for the morning LOL comment :)”
“The shut down will have zero effect on the 2014 congressional elections. This is just wishful thinking. I predict that the fiasco over the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act will have a much greater effect and will result in the Republicans increasing their seats in the House and taking the Senate.”

“Will the Tea Party repay the 24 billion dollars they owe the United States? Where should we send the invoice? To "Freedomworks?"”

“Are you kidding me? Republicans can't even govern, they've proven that.
Laying off 800,000 workers for 2 weeks is much worse than hiccups in Obamacare. You're seeing it through rose colored lenses, that the majority of Americans do not.
Simply put, a lot of people who have voted Republican all their lives, have been slowly, but surely, voting either independent or Democratic. The party is a far cry from what it was in 1956. As it lurches ever farther to the right wing, you lose more center and center right voters, who then find themselves without any representation from what had been their party for decades.”

“Every woman in this country that cares about heath care for herself and her family, every woman that cares about her right to vote, every woman that cares about education, her aging parents, her environment will remember come the next two elections!.... women have very very long memories and we will not forget and our voices are 51% of voters in this country.
Don't hold your breath that people won't remember the agenda of the TP/GOP

“You predicted Romney would win by a landslide.”
Kiver on Oct 25, 2013 at 09:43:05
“Did you also predict that Romney would win the Presidency because "the majority of Americans" did not want ObamaCare?
How did that bit of denial work out for you?”

“Must be related to Karl Rove and his predictions.”
“Instead of threatening Cruz, Old Yellow Tooth should worry about his own position. The only reason he survived a primary challenge last time in Arizona was because his Tea Party challenger was completely unqualified and incompetent. For this reason alone, he should adore the Tea Party. Grandpa should retire and enjoy his wife's family's beer fortune.”
