“False equivalency in this case. Republicans have tied up everything they possibly could and are trying their best to de-legitimize this president any way they can. I don't see how that is the Democrats or President Obama's fault!”

“They even have a lot of the American people pointing fingers. All congressmen and senators should get together and do whats good for the public, period.”

“Yep -- if the Republicans hadn't completely abused this, it wouldn't have been necessary. The facts speak for themselves -- go look up the filibusters over the years -- there was no excuse for this abuse by Republicans.”

“But you had no problem with Bush and other Republican Presidents being able to appoint members and the judiciary? Why now?”

“When Bush appointed someone the opposition viewed as too radical, they didn't get confirmed and he would try again..ie Miguel Estrada. That system has worked for nearly 240 years, why does it have to change now?”

“Really? I did a search and didn't come up with any filibusters lead by President Obabma when he was in the Senate. Seriously, if he did, you should at least cite your references.”

“Did I say he led? NO, he followed a filibuster attempt against SCJ Alito.”

“Obamacare will take care of the democrats. They can go before everyone and speak of their support. Republicans don't elect themselves. Democrats do what they think is best and that elects republicans.”

“Based on your comment, you are part of the right which doesn't celebrate diversity, so you should be in agreement with Matthews! The Right is always complaining about political correctness, unless of course it points out faults in one of their own!”

“"The Right is always complaining about political correctness,"

And the left is always complaining about "bullying" so what's your point? Both parties are a mess? Because I could get behind that theory..”

“My thought exactly -- sounds like he wants to be considered the modern day Indianna Jones! Additionally, he says he scaled the wall, took out a terrorist and then saw the Ambassador's body at the hospital -- how did he get to the hospital and into it to see the bodyif he was duking it out at the compound? If the Ambassador was already dead when he scaled the wall, why were the terrorirsts still there? How did he escape all the other terrorists? How and when did he hear about the attack? If he heard via his cell phone, why didn't he take pictures of the compound, the terrorists and the ambassador's body? Why didn't he call for additional help? His story (lies) just don't add up.”

“I don't need a vasectomy or viagra, haven't needed any heart surgery, cancer treatment, diabetes, etc., yet my insurance premium help fund that for others. That is the purpose of insurance -- we all pay into the pot and sometimes we need it and sometimes we don't. It's a very simple equation. Your argument is that you should only have to pay for whaqt you use and that simply is not th epurpose of insurance! Additionally, I "have" to have liability on my auto and home insurance -- which the "government" mandates, so I don't have a problem with making sure all Americans carry health insurance, especially considering those who don't make my property taxes a heck of a lot higher!”

sgtarchiecutter on Nov 1, 2013 at 20:04:06

“If you're going to buy a policy that covers way more than you need to help support others who may need them - go for it. Otherwise your premise is false as until ACA, we all could by what we needed (or felt like paying for).

I'm not aware of any mandate for home insurance other than by the bank holding my mortgage. I also carry a lot more insurance on both my home and car than any mandate requires, but I don't have flood insurance cause if I ever do need it it ain't gonna do much good (as in end of the world). So again, your premise is false.

Remember the ability to drive a car is a privilege, living is a right and there shouldn't be a gov't cost to do so.”

“Free stuff? You realize the employees pay for their health care insurance -- this is a case of an employer denying his employees access to all the benefits -- it has nothing to do with freedom of religion -- just more abuse by religion! Do these owner give their employees with children free groceries to offset their refusal to let people make their own family planning choices?”

mayoungkin on Nov 1, 2013 at 16:15:31

“Nice try, but so very wrong. Employees pay for a very specific benefit plan that includes some services and not others. No one service is required. It has everything to do with religious freedom. And the employer isn't denying family planning choices, it is declining to finance those choices.

You really are overmatched in this argument. Try again if you wish, but you've lost this argument.”

“Oh my god -- you compare Martin Luther King in any way to Rand Paul? What has Paul accomplished in his life? Has he made significant contributions to eliminate racism? Poverty? The environment? He admitted yesterday, that he doesn't even write most of his speeches! I'm somewhat confused why you would bring up a dead man to compare to Paul, when the deceased can't speak for himself. Why did you bring up a Black man when there are plenty of White men who have admitted to plagersim? By the Way, MLK was 39 when he was assassinated and Rand Paul is 50 and has not accomplished anything significant to help masses of people in the US or around the world! It's obvious you're a bigot (if you had any backbone, you would admit it) and if the schools who granted degrees to MLK felt that the plagerism on his part was inconsequential, then who are you to complain!”

watches on Oct 31, 2013 at 13:52:23

“Calling me a "bigot" is truly offensive, and I don't know why you would go there other to try to intimidate a person who disagrees with you. Unfortunatlely, you think it is okay to make personal attacks on complete strangers. You miss my point. I'm not comparing MLK with Rand Paul. I never would do that. In response to my post someone posted that because Rand Paul plagiarized a Wikipedia page, he is therefore a "fraud" and a "lazy fraud". I was just pointing out the charges of plagiarism against MLK to show that even if MLK did plagiarize something he WAS not a fraud...and that calling people a "liar" and a "fraud" based upon a charge of plagiarism of a Wikipedia page is very petty and counterproductive.”

“I never watched Jersey Shore and didn't know much about Nicole other than all the blather on talk shows. I was really surprised at her personality and demeanor on Dancing with the Stars. I think she was quite talented, worked hard and seemed to have her focus on her new son. I thought she was cute and petite and definitely not ugly. She seems to have turned her life around, much like Nichole Ritchey after she had her daughter. How sad that people like this radio announcer think and talk like that when he doesn't even know this person.”

“What? You don't want to know that our elected officials are so lazy and unimaginative that they have to resort to using Wikipedia for their talking points and on top of that try to claim those comments as their own? Seems dishonest to me. Would you really want the leader of the free world using Wikipedia as their source for their comments and speeches?”
