Referring to them as an 'army' will give them grossly inflated ideas about their importance.

I think they've already received that gift, Anders.

Speaking of which, I hope you had a Merry Xmas!

Tea baggers suck donkey dongs. They are the taliban of the right.

The headlines this morning say "US jobless aid applications fall to 5-year low" and those uncompromising sonsofbitches who, btw, lost the damned election, won't compromise their "principles," namely, taxing the rich.

If no deal can be reached on time--as appears likely now--I hope Obama uses his bully pulpit to spell out exactly who is responsible.

Piss on all those fookers.

Republicans have pushed for the unamended renewal of FISA - rejecting both privacy protections and reasonable oversight despite the fact FISA is the most flagrant intrusion of government into our lives. So much for 'small' government.

Question: Someone posted a list of mountaineers who lived into their 80's-90's that was quite impressive, and I can't find it. Last few days. Anyone know where it is?

I need it for a cross post to forum where they say that outdoor people obviously live less long.

A nice recap of the past election:
An aspiring writer of political suspense novels would be laughed out of publishing houses if he tried to sell a book with absurdly unlikely characters and plot twists such as these:

• In front of a huge television audience, the presidential campaign of a popular Texas governor implodes when he declares his intent to get rid of three government agencies and then, unable to name the third agency, sheepishly whimpers, “Oops.”

• A former speaker of the House, curiously named “Newt,” runs as a champion of traditional values with his third wife (and former mistress) at his side and his entire campaign bankrolled by a Las Vegas casino owner.

• A portly radio commentator named “Rush” conducts a three-day, on-air screed against young women who use birth control, branding them “sluts” and sex maniacs. He loses a few advertisers, but otherwise retains his role as the voice of true conservatives.

• A major party, fighting the perception it is in thrall to the rich, nominates a man who cannot hide the fact he is an out-of-touch rich guy. Most notoriously, this nominee is secretly videotaped telling a room full of wealthy donors that 47% of Americans are freeloaders living off the government. Like Newt and Rush, the nominee also has a distinctive and odd first name -- “Mitt.” Oh, and he’s a Mormon.

• The first nonwhite American president, under relentless attack and presiding over a languishing economy, is saved from political ruin by a trio of too-convenient Hollywood-fantasy plot twists: 1) He OKs a long-shot military raid that takes out the world’s most notorious terrorist; 2) a super storm hits the biggest city in the country just before the election, giving him a chance to ride to the rescue; and 3) in a back room at his Chicago campaign headquarters, a team of twentysomething computer geeks devises the best voter turnout scheme in history.

Throw into the storyline a pompous plutocrat named “Trump” demanding to see the president’s birth certificate, a black, conservative, ex-pizza company exec babbling “9-9-9” and a couple of GOP Senate candidates giving a positive spin to rape and you have a bloated, preposterous scenario screaming for a rewrite.

failure after failure, day by day the leaders of the republicon party show (clearly to me) that they are not interested in being leaders: if they show leadership, to me, its leading us all to into utter ruin.

Thanks repugs: for voting for the demise of the USA as we all have grown to know it.

The Republican party has a narrow agenda...Save the rich from paying taxes and paying a living wage to American workers while raising taxes on the middle class...Is anyone , besides Romney and the rest of the country club Republicans , suprised about the recent elections...? Yet they continue to obstruct the will of the American people with their financial cliff shennanigans...RJ

The Fiscal Cliff
A Republican generated hysteria and a direct consequence of Republicans refusing to lead, and content to just kick the can down the road.
They are like Taliban terrorists, give us what we want, or they will refuse to go along with anything.

And now the Debt Ceiling. The Republicans think they can take the Economy to the brink to get their right wing agenda installed.
They lost, they have always lost, because their agenda sucks and no one wants it, if they heard the truth of it.

Obama should just take the issue off the table, and say that America will pay it's debt no matter what the great regressives think.

The Republican way of handling the debt ceiling talks is like them saying they are taking their Own Child hostage, and they will kill it if they don't get their ransom

How the hell are we supposed to pay the debt when you idiots won't cut spending. No matter how much you raise taxes, it won't f*#king work. You refuse to GET IT!

And philo, how many billionaires do we have in the US? How much do you want from them in $? What good will this do other than give you and your rich-folk-resentful folks a hard on.

I found this in a WA Post article's comments:

If you remove 8 zeros from the US Budget and view it as a household budget:

Annual family income: $21,700
Money the family spent: $38,200
New debt on the credit card: $16,500
Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710

Total budget cuts so far: $38.50

The problem stands out like a black eye.


Is this for real?! Relatively speaking using current economic data, are these numbers even close? I shudder the thought with Obama's mission plan.

Mimi,

Perhaps you can enlighten me.

Using your "household" analogy, that one should pay for what one acquires, what is the model that your side has followed for the last 50 years?

Democrats seem to do something that you absolutely can't stand: pay the bills. Raise the taxes to pay for the things that have been voted for.

But you don't want to do that. You don't want to pay for the things that you voted for in your administrations, in your budgets.

Your model is to borrow. As one of your gurus, Dick Cheney said: Debt doesn't matter.

I'm not interested in your attack-dog tactics against democrats right now, I'm interested in what Repubicans have to offer, because it seems like nothing.

In the last round on the debt ceiling, Republicans came out for reniging on the word of the country, and caused DECADES-LASTING HARM to the creditworthiness of the country. Do you seriously advocate NOT PAYING THE BILLS that have already been incurred, and making the "full faith and credit" of the US a meaningless phrase?

What is the model? All I see is a model of cutting democratic programs, which is not a financial model, but a political attack.

Oh geez, i am SO tired of this LYING about SPENDING

For those too damn stupid and lazy to know:

1) ALL spending bills by our Constitution must originate in the House of Representatives

2) ALL spending bills must be voted on and passed by the House.

3) For over TWO YEARS, the REPUBLICANS are the majority and control all SPENDING

4) get it yet?


In addition: Over two thirds of our national debt was added by REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS

get it yet?
