Ahh, the word queer comes up again, unsollicited, unmentioned, but good ole reliable LRS brings it up. Almost as obsessed with "queers" as our faithful Rogue is obsessed with Clinton's penis. That's the way it goes, folks, as LRS creaks his closet door open just a tad more, hoping for an encouraging word, a little whispering "come on", but the room is silent, except for the sounds of someone throwing up after the poor unsespecting soul peeked inside the closet, and in shock, wondering why this "blob", onefinger in nose, other in azz, was "switching".
The words just go together, know what I mean? LMAO

Southern Democrats are members of the U.S. Democratic Party who reside in the American South. In the 19th century, they were the definitive pro-slavery wing of the party, opposed to both the anti-slavery Republicans (GOP) and the more liberal Northern Democrats.

Eventually "Redemption" was finalized in the Compromise of 1877 and the Redeemers gained control throughout the South. As the New Deal began to move Democrats as a whole to the left (at least economically), Southern Democrats largely stayed as conservative as they had always been, with some even breaking off to form farther right-wing splinters like the Dixiecrats. After the Civil Rights Movement successfully challenged the Jim Crow laws and other forms of institutionalized racism, and after the Democrats as a whole came to symbolize the mainstream left of the United States, the form, if not the content, of Southern Democratic politics began to change.

After World War II, during the civil rights movement, Democrats in the South initially still voted loyally with their party. After the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, white voters who became tolerant of diversity began voting against Democratic incumbents for GOP candidates. The Republicans carried many Southern states for the first time since before the Great Depression. Rising educational levels and rising prosperity in the South, combined with shifts to the left by the national Democratic Party on a variety of socio-economic issues, led to widespread abandonment of the Democratic Party by white voters and Republican dominance in many Southern states by the 1990s and 2000s.

When Richard Nixon courted voters with his Southern Strategy, many Democrats became Republicans and the South became fertile ground for the GOP, which conversely was becoming more conservative as the Democrats were becoming more liberal. However, Democratic incumbents still held sway over voters in many states, especially those of the Deep South. In fact, until 2002, Democrats still had much control over Southern politics. It wasn't until the 1990s that Democratic control gradually collapsed, starting with the elections of 1994, in which Republicans gained control of both houses of Congress, through the rest of the decade. Southern Democrats of today who vote for the Democratic ticket are mostly urban liberals. Rural residents tend to vote for the Republican ticket, although there are a sizable number of Conservative Democrats.

A huge portion of Representatives, Senators, and voters who were referred to as Reagan Democrats in the 1980s were conservative Southern Democrats. An interesting exception to this trend is Arkansas, where to this day all but one statewide elected officials are Democrats.(The state has, however, given its electoral votes to the GOP in the past three Presidential elections, although in 1992 and 1996, "favorite son" Bill Clinton was the candidate and won each time.)

Another exception is North Carolina. Despite the fact that the state has voted for Republicans in every presidential election from 1980 until 2004, the governorship, legislature, as well as most statewide offices remain in Democratic control, and with the election of Heath Shuler in 2006, the congressional delegation once again is majority Democratic.

One Sunny day in January 2013, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where
he ' d been sitting on a park bench.

He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would
like to go in and meet with President Romney ."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Romney is not the President."

The old man said, "Okay," and walked away. The following day the same man
approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go
in and meet with President Romney ."

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Romney not the President."
The man thanked him and again just walked away. The third day the same man
approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying,
"I would like to go in and meet with President Romney ."The Marine,
understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is
the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Romney . I've
told you already that Mr. Romney is not the President. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said,
"Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."
The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir"

What does Romney have to do with overseas labor rates? Back to the wealthy for a sec. Actually, the wealthy owe less than anyone else! It's the people that don't do a damn thing that owe the most! The idea that the wealthy owe more is asinine at BEST.

Crackdown on Food Stamp Fraud: A $750M a Year Scam

The Department of Agriculture announced it would be giving states more power to investigate individuals and families that repeatedly claim they have lost their benefit cards and seek replacements. Under the new procedures, the states would be allowed to demand formal explanations from people who seek replacement cards more than three times a year. Those who don't comply can be denied further cards.

No literate reply. Reduced to name-calling and profanity. Cannot put together a simple riposte. Yes, you definitely do not measure up, LRS/haha patriot warrior. That's right, get in that phone booth, now, and morph into , omg, ho ho, patriot cream puff warrior. Please don't leave, please stay, else where do I get my laughs?

Jindal to Birfistan. STFU

"It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments - enough of that," Jindal said. "It's not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can't be tolerated within our party. We've also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters."
