Thank God there are still some responsible grown-ups in Congress willing to stand up to your lib prog statist heroes' well-intentioned but insanely reckless push to take America down the path towards Nanny-State Europe.
Look how well that's working out for them ...

joe, go blue forever, et al... you do realize that partisan nonsense is the equivalent of an adult claiming that pro wrestling is real, right?

Oh, you don't? You've fallen for politicians and their lies? Ooops, sorry to be the one to break to you... but you're a dupe and you've been had.

If you are a Democrat or a Republican... You need to wake up and start thinking for yourself. BOTH of those parties are WORKING to destroy YOU.

And they probably will destroy YOU and your country... because YOU enable TYRANNY.

Wake up!!!!

It's only paranoia, joe, if they actually aren't spending, borrowing, and printing the nation into irretrievable and permanent fiscal collapse.

It is also clear that what you are so pleased with yourself to refer to as "education" is in fact lib prog collective propaganda and programming, and reactionary suppression of any dangerous (to the Collective) individual critical thinking and empirical reality-testing. By this measure, you are clearly one HIGHLY educated puppydog.

In short, you are a hopeless case.

Others with unimpaired critical thinking skills will yet turn this current swerve to the unsustainable left around in time.

Ah yes, and thus we hear clearly the early rantings of the hopelessly arrogant fascistic mindset giving forth from the pureness of your proudly uneducated but nonetheless "unimpaired critical thinking skills".

If we all hold real still we can almost hear the marching boots pounding in the background.

Better yet...

It freaks me out, Limbaugh said.I have to tell ya, it freaks me out that Vladimir Putin is saying things that I agree with. The Russian president has opposed the adoption of Russian orphans by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender foreign couples, and has instructed the government and supreme court there to prepare changes to existing law by July 1.

Oh them good 'ole goobers (GOP) and their freedom loving:

Republican North Carolina state legislators have proposed allowing an official state religion in a measure that would declare the state exempt from the Constitution and court rulings.

The bill, filed Monday by two GOP lawmakers from Rowan County and backed by nine other Republicans, says each state "is sovereign" and courts cannot block a state "from making laws respecting an establishment of religion." The legislation was filed in response to a lawsuit to stop county commissioners in Rowan County from opening meetings with a Christian prayer, wral.com reported.

Those good 'ole goobers are at it agin:

"Its ultimately about changing the culture of the entire country; it inevitably will lead to teaching our public school kids that gay marriage is a perfectly fine alternative and no different than traditional marriage.
There is also a very slippery slope leading to other alternative relationships and the unconstitutionality of any law based on morality. Think about polygamy, bestiality, and perhaps even murder."

Glad you're enjoying. But, not a melt-down (obviously), just sharing some of the "thinking" coming from the right.

Good 'Ole Goobers just keep on keepin' on:

Virginia Gov. Candidate Cuccinelli Defending Law That Forbids Oral Sex

Last month, three judges on the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit deemed a Virginia anti-sodomy law unconstitutional...

...Virginia attorney general and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli is asking the full 4th Circuit to reconsider the case. Cuccinelli wants the court to revive the prohibition on consensual anal and oral sex, for both gay and straight people.(The case at hand involves consensual, heterosexual oral sex.)

Actually, Teddy, of the seven or eight posts I've made in the last couple of days, this is the ONLY one YOU were interested in commenting on.

But I guess you're ok with the part about "...(The case at hand involves consensual, heterosexual oral sex.)"

Why is that, Teddy?

joe, for the first time in your life, you're half right!!!

Sure, unemployment and gas prices are still sky-high... and Obama is making sure that the sequester only harms the lower and middle class...

But the Dow Jones bubble hasn't burst yet... so the people that VOTED FOR him are still screwed... but the people that DIDN'T vote for him are still just fine!

Great job!!!
