Sheesh! All you little insects do is complain about not having things YOUR way! What a bunch of immature whiners you are!
But.... you provide entertaining comedy in the process!
Yours is a typical Liberal mindset: don't fix the country - leave it for a better one. The grass is always greener on the other side!

Let the rest of the citizens suffer through the rigors of fixing their country while you slither away to find some place easier, like Mexico, to drink Margaritas and wiggle your fat diabetic toes in the sand. Cheap. You are cheap. A Loser with no shame or conscience.

Are you really so stupid to calim that Republiclowns did not attempt to disenfranchise countless thousands of voters in 2012??

If so, you're more a fool than I gave you credit for.

-----

In the lead up to the 2000 presidential election, Florida’s Republican Secretary of State Katherine Harris hired a private company to create an error-laden “scrub list” of so-called ineligible voters, eventually wrongly purging as many as 7000 voters from Florida’s rolls — or 13 times George W. Bush’s post-Supreme Court margin of victory. Moreover, because Harris’ list “invariably target[ed] a minority population in Florida” that was overwhelmingly likely to vote for Al Gore, it is likely that her voter purge gave the presidency to Bush. Four years later, Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell engaged in similar shenanigans to suppress the vote in his crucial swing state — including at one point saying he would reject voter registration forms if they were not printed on 80-pound thickness cardstock.

This election, the role of Kathrine Harris and Ken Blackwell is played by Ohio’s new Republican Secretary of State, Jon Husted. Here are just a few of the steps Husted took to try to swing Ohio’s crucial electoral votes to Mitt Romney:
•Trashing Provisional Ballots: In a last-minute directive that directly conflicts with Ohio law, Husted ordered all voters who make a mistake when filling out a form accompanying provisional ballots to be disenfranchised. As the majority of provisional ballots are cast in Ohio’s five largest counties — all of which favor Democrats — and because low-income and transient voters are also more likely to vote provisionally, Husted’s directive will likely disenfranchise many more Democrats than Republicans.
•Restricting Early Voting: Husted fought tooth and nail to limit opportunities to vote early in Ohio, although most of the restrictions on early voting Husted advocated were eventually blocked by a federal appeals court. Nevertheless, Husted still limited the number of hours available for early voting even after he lost in federal court, and he told an election law symposium last month that the court decision restoring early voting periods was an “un-American approach to voting.” Early voters in Ohio overwhelmingly support President Obama. As the federal court restoring early voting explained,“early voters have disproportionately lower incomes and less education than election day voters,” and thus are less likely to work flexibility to take time off to vote on election day.
•Defying Court Orders: After a federal district court declared Ohio’s efforts to suppress early voting unconstitutional, Husted openly defied this order — ordering local elections officials not to comply with it. Husted eventually backed down after federal Judge Peter Economus ordered Husted to personally attend a court hearing concerning his refusal to comply with the law.
•Retaliating Against People Who Oppose Him: Husted fired two Montgomery County board of election members after they voted to allow early voting on weekends when Husted opposed it.

Funny how you have to go into ancient history, namely 1868, to find a time when Republiclowns weren't racists. LOL

Times change. All th eDems who were racists switched Parties to Republiclown during the Civil Rights era.

Including:

Ronald Raygun
Jesse Helms
Strom Thurmond

It's fun exposing you people for being as stupid as you are!!

There are two hallmarks of expressive stupidity that you are known for: wow & lol. It says a lot:}

I don't care what or who or how or why Annenberg is called conservative. I go by the activities of an organization. If a dead philanthropist's assets are later on commandeered by Liberal moochers, it means nothing to pull out Annenberg's laurels like you are trying to do. You can call an ass a racehorse but I still won't believe you. Credibility - you need some.

I guess you got me waxturd. All you have to do to get me to admit I'm wrong is to deny the quote I attributed as your position on guns:
"Guns are okay as long as they are used to kill people."

Do you deny that?

Then I assume your position is:
"Guns are NOT okay if they are used to kill people."

Since you hate hunting what other possible use for guns is there?

Hear Hear or Here Here?
Posted on November 10, 2008 by Abacquer
So today I found myself agreeing with someone online and went to type “hear hear” but then remembered seeing someone else type “here here” a couple days earlier.
I was pretty sure the correct phrase was “hear hear” as opposed to the other variants I'd seen (“here here”,“hear here”,“here hear”) but I'd never actually looked it up. So I decided to check popular internet usage using Google:
“hear hear”= 1,740,000 hits
“here here”= 3,880,000 hits
“hear here”= 307,000 hits
“here hear”= 334,000 hits
Well dang. According to popular usage twice as many people say “here here” than say “hear hear”. But is that correct? Wikipedia says no:
Hear hear (Wikipedia):
…Hear, hear is an expression used as a short repeated form of hear ye and hear him. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker.
It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as “the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons”, with many purposes depending on the intonation of its user. It is often incorrectly spelled “here here”, especially on websites…
A quick double check of OneLook Dictionary Search confirms this. Six dictionaries list “hear hear” and only one lists “here here”(and that one happens to be the wiki article above.)
Popular usage drives the movement of meaning, though, so at some point in the future “here here” may end up being the correct phrase if we don't do something about it.
So if you want to avoid yet another English colloquialism that will have your great grandchildren scratching their heads and saying “WTF?”(or whatever kids will be saying in those days) then type “hear hear” at every opportunity.
Hear! Hear!

Hey Old Raider, I see you pick out the dumbest of the dumb and attempt to restore sanity, unfortunatly after a rightie is programmed, it's forever. There is no amount of facts or reality allowed to enter that hollow log....EVER. But I admire your efforts.
