“The Koch's spent ten times as much in 2012. Saying Patriot Majority USA came in second to them is like saying the Cuba was second to the USSR during the Cold War.”

“it's media's constant effort to say "see? both sides do it." they take absolutely no time to break down the information relative to "both sides" - you want the money out of politics? support the efforts to overturn "Citizen's United". support candidates who stand firmly for immediate campaign finance reform. you will find Bernie Sanders is a yes. Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, there ARE individuals current IN office that vote responsibly. You'll find them to be Democrats.”

“They're not "entitlements" if we paid for them!”

“They are entitlements, we are entitled to them, because we paid for them.”

Victor Bobier on Oct 4, 2013 at 00:26:30

“To Repubs/baggers if one gets a check from the SSA it's an 'entitlement', as that is what Repubs/baggers want to make all of the SSA programs into, ones that are Discretionary, instead of Mandatory, so that appropriations cuts can be made whenever Repubs/baggers want to, a repeal of the SSA a year at a time, on the sly.”

Joseph Glackin on Oct 4, 2013 at 00:26:09

“This is how the right has perverted the language. we ARE ENTITLED to the payments BECAUSE we paid for them. The GOP only honors contracts with donors, not with workers.”

“Why, you like watching Hillary dodging all those incoming on the runway in Kosovo? Or maybe you want to see the replay of that 2:)) AM call from Benghazi?”

“Someone who isn't NBC though. NBC can only rely on NFL and The Voice for ratings. They probably want the special to go above a 2.0 rating --- so they should let CBS try it out”

“Wish people would wake up and notice that the Dems are ..

skippy3504 on Jul 13, 2013 at 08:31:25

“They are? They are pushing their own agenda and the GOP is not going along with that liberal agenda. That is to be expected. The people on the right consider the Democrats to be obstructing their more conservative agenda.

Why is Congress and the President pushing Immigration reform so hard? It was not even in the top five important issues of the voters in 2012. Immigration reform is just a political wedge being used by the President and the Democrats for political gain and falsely and gladly being touted as major issue by the liberal elites in the media at the New York Times and Washington Post So are the Republicans so wrong in not focusing on Immigration reform right now? I don't think so and I doubt if a majority of Americans do either.

GOP losers? I don't think so. Since Obama took office in 2009, the GOP is up 50+ House seats, five Senate seats (not counting temp NJ), eight governors (Dems down nine) and he GOP has picked up complete control of thirteen more state legislatures. GOP losers? Really?”

“I miss the Republicans that governed for fiscal responsibility. That is, if taxes are what are needed, taxes are enacted; if cuts are feasible and warranted, cuts are put in place. Where did responsible representatives go?”

“Sure would have been nice if the Republicans on Capital Hill had given the Department of State the funds they needed to upgrade security. Maybe those four would still be alive if the GOP hadn't put political grandstanding ahead of the lives of the people who served our nation.”

“Halliburton started working for the feds during the first Gulf War. It was their subsidiary, Brown & Root, that put out all the oil well fires Hussein started when he was forced out of Kuwait. The company has been around nearly a hundred years. Like any established company they're bound to end up with a government contract if they can handle the service.

IBM has been around even longer and has substantial public contracts. Are they bad guys, too?”
