“Read up on the "know nothings" back in the 19th century. Check out the similarity to the Tea Party.”

“Conservatives can't take a step back and look at the world as it is. They are stuck in the past. That is the definition of what it means to be conservative. They "conserve", they stay the same, they are stuck. 1950 is now.”

“I've been married longer than the good senate candidate. I would not presume to discuss politics with my wife on an emotional level. She is far too intelligent for that. And I am sure she would get seriously angry if I did.”

ShinjiIkari on Dec 9, 2013 at 20:40:23

“Faved you for that one. My late wife, to whom I was married for 25 years, was a political scholar, and worked for the campaigns of Barack Obama and Paul Simon. She probably knows more on the subject that Mark Jacobs, and she's been dead for two years!”

“Rush is "self employed". He owns his studio. Clear Channel pays him to broadcast his show. On the other hand Martin Bashir was an employee of MSNBC. That's why Rush can say any off color thing he wishes. His audience expects it and is titillated by it. I wish I could say what I think of him.”

“And I believe he just got booted from a highly rated, powerful station in LA to a very low-power, low rated station. In fact the article stated that it was hard to find a signal from the new stations own parking lot. He's sinking fast.”

“With respect to China's treatment of Tibet, its culture and people... China richly deserves to be embarrassed. And it isn't "the West" that is doing it but rather the steadfast nonviolent, compassionate and rational opposition coming from the Dalai Lama. I would reccommend that you watch the movie "Kundun". There you would get the Tibetan perspective on the Chinese and their mistreatment of Tibet.”

Maria Mohamed on Dec 9, 2013 at 18:23:23

“Kundun is made in the west and is extremely biased. Do you know Tibet as a theocratic serfdom where 90% people were treated like animals? The Chinese forced the monks and serf owners to end the system (that is why the dalai lama fled). The Chinese also send serfs' children to school and teach them humans are born equal, not born to be inferior to the dailai lama.”

“It's not the Dalai Lama they have a beef with. it's China and *it's* beef with the Dalai Lama and China's economic prowess that makes S. Africa act as it does. china gets REALLY upset at anyone who shows the slightest support for Tibet and His Holiness. China considers him to be the worst sort of person. As in a guy who wishes autonomy for his people and world wide compassion toward all sentient life. To me it doesn't make sense to fear this man. The Dalai Lama is the only man comparable in character to Nelson Mandela who is currently alive.”

“The economy in Detriot was all cars. If an economy is based on one item only and does not diversify it will eventually fail because of competition. More cars are made in Mexico than in Michigan these days. It wasn't the democratic party that ruined the economy in Detriot.”

Alpha Liberal 1 on Dec 9, 2013 at 17:15:37

“The Democratic Party propped up the Detroit auto industry for decades. The latest example was Obama's cars for clunkers. They should have let it fail a long time ago so the city could diversify. They also let public sector unions bankrupt the government instead of making cuts which are going to happen now anyways.”
