1) immigrants ain’t illegal anymore.
2) it ain’t the fed’s biz what Constitutionally allowed medical treatments My Wife wants, needs or desires.
3) one can marry a goat for all I care, as long as it doesn’t increase my taxes.
4) last I looked there were more demos in church than rinos.

What else ya got?

wow…so killing a 8 pound baby at birth is okay with you? sad…
Anyway you demonstrate yourself to be a liberal RINO by the fact you used the law to defend murdering an unborn child YET ignore the law in regards to immigration.

My points was not policy…it was that Fits is wrong when they say their is no difference between the two parties…read closer next time…you just exposed yourself as being to the left of Hillary…:)

Yea, that is the thing about Republicans. They think because the can produce polls showing they attend church that makes them Christians. So they tout dubious polls about how often they attend church to show their godliness.
What you will find out of course is that is all they do. Go to church on Sunday. That is all god expects after all, and for their devotion he will reward them with wealth and prosperity. Forget the poor, forget the sick, forget those in need. Ignore the parts of the books of Matthew and Luke relating to those things..
“God helps those who help themselves.” Matthew 25: 31-46 New Republican Standard Version.

The Colonel April 20, 2015 at 11:46 am

Dubious polls mmmkay.

“..That is all god (sic) expects after all, and for their devotion he will reward them with wealth and prosperity……, That’s sort of like those liberals who tout global warming then fly off to the next event in their private jet. Or those liberals who bitch loudly about voter ID laws and then require far higher standard of identification to get into their national convention or “listening events”.

Jack April 20, 2015 at 1:18 pm

What silly comparisons. First of all, there aren’t enough people who believe global warming is a concern and who have private jets to have any impact on the environment. So that is just nonsense designed to do what Republicans do best. Change the subject.
Second regarding voting, you do not have a constitutional right to enter into a private function. Security is necessary to keep out nuts; generally Republican nuts. On the other hand, Republicans will force you to have an ID to exercise the most fundamental and important of your Constitutional Rights, the right to vote, even though they have yet to prove an incident of material voter fraud, and even though they admit behind closed doors their primary goal is to suppress minority turn out. Yet, they scream if you want people to be required to prove who they are and go through a background check before they are allowed to buy a damn gun. Talk about hypocrisy.

The Colonel April 20, 2015 at 1:20 pm

Keep telling yourself it’s a silly comparison:

Who gives a crap what a hand full of billionaires do? The vast majority of people concerned about climate change are not billionaires, and were not a Davos. Why do Republicans seek to constantly distract from the issues. Attack people, ignore issues should be your slogan.

Mary April 20, 2015 at 1:27 pm

If you think those examples are even remotely comparable, I suggest you actually read Matthew 25:31-46. The most clear description in the Bible, of what we should all expect on judgment day.

The Colonel April 20, 2015 at 1:30 pm

Oddly, I’m working on my Bible study right now, I’ll raise your Matthew 25:31-46 and see you a Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves

Mary April 20, 2015 at 1:45 pm

Well since I do not believe I am a scribe, Pharisee, or hypocrite, I don’t fear that verse. However, I think that verse applies quite well to the new evangelists, mega church pastors, and “prosperity profits” who take the money of their flock to make themselves rich while teaching their flock that god will reward their contributions of money with wealth and prosperity; or to those mostly Republican politicians who say that God told them to run for public office or God told them to invade a country, or God told them how to vote on a piece of legislation; and those who imply that God loves conservative rich Americans more than starving children in Africa.

Hey Colonel I did check out that Papyrus – hmmm….while interesting on John’s side of things.

Name ONE thing (document, word, etc), just one, that Jesus wrote.

FastEddy23 April 21, 2015 at 11:32 am

As noted elsewhere outside of the blogosphere … Jesus may have been “illiterate”, unable or unwilling to write anything down. (There may be a message in that, too … pearls before swine, “you get my drift …”, “do as I say, not as I do …”, no pencils or monolith scratchers available in the heat of the moment. …)

SynTwist April 21, 2015 at 11:35 am

There were other philosophers before his time, such as Epicurus who did a tremendous amount of writing. Much of it was destroyed. I just find it interesting that not one single thing Jesus ever wrote has been recorded first person.

FastEddy23 April 21, 2015 at 12:10 pm

Yes, of course. But they were not always being chased through the streets by angry competitors and/or the tyrannical fascists.

Hey, if one throws the money changers out of the temples, incites the mob not to do what mobs want to do, smear, disparage and/or slander the opposition’s views, you should probably not write anything down.

He may very well have written quite a bit down, but considering the fighting over and theft of His other souvenirs, one would be surprised if any of it survived. (Consider That Cup or That Shroud.)

So let me understand your point. We, the “commoners” (your words not mine), are to choose between a person who says she will fight for the middle class, will protect social security, will protect Medicare, will take action to improve the lot of the average citizen, and will fight to get money out of politics; but who you say is lying; and one of a group of people, all of whom admit they have no intention of working for the average American, have no intention of protecting social security, no intention of protecting Medicare, who openly propose to increase the influence of big money politics by allowing unlimited contributions, who say openly they want to cut taxes on the richest Americans (i.e. couples with a net worth of 10 million of more) and pay for those cuts by cutting programs that benefit the middle class, and whose prior candidate has already said the party cannot be concerned with the poorest 42% of the people in the country.
So I guess it boils down to the party of the “commoners” vs. the part of the aristocracy. And you propose the “commoners” support the aristocracy because they are not lying about screwing the “commoners”.

But if you had any clue how rich the “Aristocracy” is in this country, you would know that in their eyes anyone with less than tens of millions of dollars is a commoner.

Jack April 20, 2015 at 10:55 am

Typical Repugnut tactic. Attack the person. Don’t address the issues. I Not envious of anyone. I am not worried about their wealth. I am worried about them using their wealth to take over the government and screw me and the vast majority of Americans so that they can become richer and richer. The middle class is the back bone of this country. They are the source of liberty. Kill the middle class and you kill liberty. The billionairs will be as rich as Croesus, no matter what happens. Granted they will not be quite as rich as they would be if the government existed only to make them richer, but they are working hard on that and buying as many politicians as possible to make sure it happens.
There are no socialists running for President, that is just a stamen by stupid people who do not even know what socialism is. Everyone benefits from this country, and everyone benefits from what the government does. The ultra wealthy like to pretend they do not benefit far more from government than the rest of us, but they do. They are the takers. The average American is trying to do the right thing, work hard, be successful, and provide for his family. Programs designed to allow for that benefit everyone. But these guys will gladly prevent that from happening if it would cost them one cent in taxes, even though they also benefit heavily from taxes..

Crooner April 20, 2015 at 3:22 pm

Money is simply a GAME to many of them. Having money is like scoring points- the more money you have the higher your score. It’s a competition, and it doesn’t have anything to do with lifestyle. Does anyone really need more than one jet and one yacht? We need a return to the “Golden Age” of the 1950’s, when the top tax rate was about 90%. That will turn the 1% into job creators. And stop the pretense that income from different sources should be taxed differently.

When I watch Hillary Clinton travelling across America in a minivan and pretending to be “one of us,” I get an overwhelming sense of phoniness. But as Jack wrote above, at least she proclaims support for the people’s issues. Her GOP opponents exploit all the typical Republican totems — guns, abortion, Sharia law hysteria, fear of “socialized” medicine, the “welfare Cadillac” myth, flag-waving, phony fiscal austerity, racist anti-Obama fables, Common Core, etc — to dupe their dewy-eyed supporters to elect them so they may carry out policies protecting moneyed interests.

“When I watch Hillary Clinton travelling across America in a minivan and pretending to be “one of us,” I get an overwhelming sense of phoniness.”

lol…”money out of politics”….Jesus..that’s funny as hell. Are you also willing to pay her $300,000 speaking fee to hear her tell you that?

Tom April 20, 2015 at 2:49 pm

You obviously did not read my comments at all. The alternatives are someone who says they will make an effort to get money out of politics, and who supports a constitutional amendment to do so, and someone else who is pushing for legislation to increase the influence of money in politics to allow billionaires to make unlimited contributions to the candidate(s) of their choice. That is nothing short of putting Congress up for auction to the highest bidder. Maybe I will be proven wrong, but I believe Clinton is far more likely fight for campaign finance reform than any of the Republicans are; because Republicans believe rich people giving unlimited money benefits them. As with all Republicans you want to attack the person and avoid the issue.
How can you people not see what Citizens United has done to this country? Are you blind? How can you support people who insist on making that problem worse.

TroubleBaby April 20, 2015 at 2:58 pm

“Maybe I will be proven wrong”

You will be proven wrong champ. Very honestly, you’re a fool.

My saying that isn’t an “attack” either, it’s reality.

“You obviously did not read my comments at all.”

lol….how is that? I took your comment and quoted it in response. Did you not mean it how you wrote it?

“As with all Republicans you want to attack the person and avoid the issue.”

Just like you are incorrect about the money grubbing Clinton’s supposedly wanting to remove money from politics(I actually laugh every time I see that idea in writing), you are also wrong about me being a “Republican”.

So when you are feeling “attacked”, make sure the “attack” isn’t actually just the exposure of reality couched in a way that is displeasing to your person.

Jack April 20, 2015 at 3:09 pm

As with all haters, whether Obama or Hillary, its all personal. I understand you hate Hillary, I understand you will not support her. So what is your point, beyond that? Its your word against hers. She says she will do something you say she is lying.
So you will instead support people who openly say they are going to screw you. Who will pass legislation to allow billionaires to give unlimited money to politicians. Who will cut taxes on the rich and make the rest of us pay for it. Who will get us into endless wars that the rest of us will pay for. Fine, do it. That’s why we have elections. People like you are allowed to screw yourself if you want.

TroubleBaby April 20, 2015 at 3:17 pm

” Its your word against hers. ”

My word against hers eh?

The speaking fees, a new book detailing their illicit money streams, her past associations with corrupted banks and ill gotten loans, all that is lost on you?

That’s really “my word” vs. “hers”?

Dear God, you’re impervious to reality.

“People like you are allowed to screw yourself if you want.”

It’s you and the voting people screwing yourselves champ, not me. I take the George Carlin approach.

You can keep running with “Hope & Change” if it makes you feel better.

Again, this isn’t an endorsement of or defense for Republicans.

Consider it a PSA.

Jack April 20, 2015 at 3:36 pm

Of course its an endorsement of Republicans there are only two choices.

And so what if Hillary gets a 300k speaking fee. That is nothing when compared to a billionaire making a 20 million dollar contribution to a single candidate. That is nothing like the Koch brothers promising to raise one billion dollars to buy the next election.
So what if some right wing group puts out a hit book on Hillary or some guy wants to make a few million selling anti-Hillary books to Republicans. We all have to choose who to believe at some point, and sometimes the choice is who is least bad. In this case there is no contest in my mind, who is least bad.
Will Clinton be good for the Middle Class. I think so, but in event she will be less bad for the Middle Class than anyone on the other side.

TroubleBaby April 20, 2015 at 3:42 pm

“And so what if Hillary gets a 300k speaking fee.”

Because it shows she’s not for “spreading the wealth”.

“some right wing group puts out a hit book”

Look, the reality is that if the book is sourced and researched properly that it doesn’t matter who put it out.

You don’t think Hitler actually had some correct viewpoints at times? Or Bush? Or Obama?

“Of course its an endorsement of Republicans there are only two choices.”

Wrong. I choose neither. You can keep your “sometimes the choice is who is least bad”-I’m sure it will get you the same place it’s gotten the country for decades now.

That you would shut your eyes to the obvious is really discouraging.

ELCID April 20, 2015 at 2:19 pm

My biggest problem with Hillary is her close relationship with the Wall Street Bankers. It was Bill Clinton that in the very last month of his Presidency, on the way out the door, took a bribe in order to sign the “Futures Modernization Act.” That Act deregulated the Wall Street gamblers products of: Options, Derivatives, CDO’s and all manner of rip offs. Thus leading directly to the 2007 crash and the Depression we are all in today.

That alone is enough never to vote for her for anything. Yet, what Republican is running who would not do the exact same thing again, or worse: None.

Where is someone worth voting for from either party???
Maybe Elizabeth Warren; but Hillary has already scared, or bought, her off.
Plus, many rednecks down South would never vote for what they think is a Massachusetts Liberal.

Crooner April 20, 2015 at 3:29 pm

the two biggest pieces of legislation that screwed the middle class was 1) repeal of the law (Sarbanes Oxley?) separating banks, insurance companies, and investment houses 2) giving secured creditor status to these same companies that send unsolicited letters to folks saying “you have been pre-approved for” credit they can’t possibly repay and cannot now wash off in bankruptcy. Both of which helped Wall Street- one signed by Clinton and the latter signed by Bush.

ELCID April 20, 2015 at 3:40 pm

All Good points.

I hate to remind my good friends of the Republican persuasian that Ronald Reagan (note I voted for him twice; second time my mistake), created the largest tax increase in US history since World War 2, and destroyed the Savings and Loan Banks. Thus, laying the ground work for the housing disasters that came later.

He also deregulated the airline industry. But, did not enforce the Anti-Trust laws. Which killed competition making the mess we have today. Maybe he was right: Washington was the problem, and he was its biggest problem. But, I digress.
