I think you might have something there, Mr. Tenzing. If I had worn shades on that terrible night 15 years ago, I probably wouldn't have been "anesthesized" and gotten probed, and an alien chip placed in my private parts, which was the beginning of me turning neocon, which I don't think was just a coincidence.
So I guess every cloud has a silver lining after all, as I've said many times, especially when it comes to letting this alien president how do you like my segues by the way?) have his way so everybody finally sees what his real agenda is, when everybody will realize I've been right all along.
Them are some excellent segues.

Death we’re on Auto-Pilot no mystery why…The budget passed by large Democratic majorities in the first months of the Obama administration had hugely elevated levels of spending in it. By not passing a new spending plan since, Reid has in effect made those levels the new budgetary baseline. Congress has kept the government going with continuing resolutions based on the last budget signed!! Thank you Democrats!!
Need to check your history, spending dropped a couple of hundred billion with Obama's first budget. Go to the historical tables at omb.gov and have a look for yourself.

At first I thought these guys were, as you say, hollow logs that were being manipulated with bad information, e.g. FOX News. I thought that by pointing out holes in their logic they could be rescued. Then I realized they have one other common thread, they're all easily frightened. Leaders on the right use fear to scare them into frenzies. Its fascinating to see which cliff Limbaugh will ask them to jump off next.
Google "authoritarian personality" and it'll shock you how accurately this describes them.

Here's a detailed list of common traits:

Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March --
blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.
The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.
The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

Nice try twit but the primary reason for Windber Medical Center closing its obstetrics unit is the fact that two of its obstetricians were leaving and two others are shifting their practices to gynecology . They would have had to make that decision under the circumstances whether or not there was an ACA. In addition they're actually increasing women's healthcare services. Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown is ready and able to pick up the slack.

Our Joey has been sworn in to his second term as VP.

In other news it has been determined that over 200,000 Floridians didn't vote in November due to the long lines. Governor Scott fought extending voting times but is now reconsidering for future elections.

SS is part of my retirement plan, I guess that's one of the main reasons I hold Obama and the dems in such low regard.
It's my firm belief his intention is to bankrupt this country, what else could explain his trillion dollar deficits?
His trillion dollar deficit? Of course it has nothing to do with the previous administrations unneeded tax cuts and two wars. The deficit also because of the recession. When people are out of work they pay less taxes. When companies cut back production and their revenues fall, they pay less taxes.

But it's great fun to see you leftwingers defending the Electoral College.
What is fun is watching Republicans trying to cheat to win elections. They gerrymandered so bad here in PA their original map was rejected by the courts, they tried the voter photo ID & now they want to assign votes based on Congressional Districts.

I have news for Republicans.

Try learning how top govern and them you won't need to cheat to win.

Inequality Is Holding Back The Recovery

Politicians typically talk about rising inequality and the sluggish recovery as separate phenomena, when they are in fact intertwined. Inequality stifles, restrains and holds back our growth. When even the free-market-oriented magazine The Economist argues — as it did in a special feature in October — that the magnitude and nature of the country’s inequality represent a serious threat to America, we should know that something has gone horribly wrong. And yet, after four decades of widening inequality and the greatest economic downturn since the Depression, we haven’t done anything about it....

Our skyrocketing inequality — so contrary to our meritocratic ideal of America as a place where anyone with hard work and talent can “make it”— means that those who are born to parents of limited means are likely never to live up to their potential. Children in other rich countries like Canada, France, Germany and Sweden have a better chance of doing better than their parents did than American kids have. More than a fifth of our children live in poverty — the second worst of all the advanced economies, putting us behind countries like Bulgaria, Latvia and Greece.

You mean like how the media and obama used fear, intimidation, and lies, threatening SS checks would not go out, veterans would miss checks and benefits if debt ceiling not raised, trying to frighten people? That the kind of cliff you referring to obama wants them to jump from?
There's hope for you Jeff, shows you're thinking and not just tossing out an unrelated ad hominem attack. And, there's some truth to your example but I'm sure you'd agree that the possibility of repercussions from the government not paying it's bills is a lot more likely than a civil war breaking out over assault weapons.

Unmerited Self-Congratulation Is a Recipe for Continued Republican Failure

Bill Kristol should be joking here, but unfortunately he isn’t:

Republicans can and should say, with considerable justification and only a bit of bravado: It is past time we ceased to apologize for an imperfect political party. Find its equal. Probably more than any other party in the world, the Republicans have in recent decades stood unflinchingly for the cause of liberty abroad, and, at home, with a bit more uncertainty, for limited, constitutional government and for the principle that government exists to serve free men and free markets, not the reverse.

If you were wondering when Republicans had started apologizing for their party’s flaws, you aren’t alone. The Republican Party has many afflictions and problems today, but a lack of triumphalism about its own virtues isn’t one of them. Kristol’s overconfidence in the GOP is impressive in a perverse way. Reviewing the GOP’s record over the past decade of massive foreign policy failure, executive overreach, expansion of government, growth of the national security state, support for torture and indefinite detention, and government bailouts, there are not many willing to celebrate the party for its “unflinching” defense of the causes of liberty and limited, constitutional government.

The simple reason for that is that it does not deserve to be celebrated. The “principle that government exists to serve free men and free markets” has been one that Republican leaders have honored more in the breach in the last decade. Republican leaders can’t cease to apologize for their party’s flaws now that they have only just begun to acknowledge them. Self-criticism is supposed to be an uncomfortable and humbling experience, not a brief prelude to more self-congratulation.
