Yes you "busted" me. I'm glad I made your day and you're so proud of yourself for catching me in what amounts to a typo.

Hard-liners Are Paving the Way for Their Increased Irrelevance
If Hagel’s mostly conventional record on issues relating to Israel can be suddenly erased or ignored because he appealed for an end to conflict in Lebanon and didn’t sign a few pointless letters, then there is almost no one who cannot be subjected to the same treatment when hard-liners choose to attack. Because of this, there are actually fewer incentives for politicians to listen to hard-liners’ demands, which are increasingly so divorced from reality that they become a liability for anyone not in a safe seat. There may eventually be more incentives to adopt more unconventional views on the grounds that the hard-liners will never be satisfied no matter what one does.

The list of those most responsible has been linked here dozens of times as have the various articles and essays. A clever guy like yourself could probably figure out how to google that stuff.

It's old news and frankly I'm not up for anymore replays with trolls, dummies or those simply out for an inexpensive evening of amusement.

THE KEY IS TO GET THEM TO JUMP UP AND DOWN AT ALL, THE REST OF THE EVENING YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THEY'RE SITTING IN A PUDDLE OF URINE. THE PART THEY OVERLOOK IS THAT IT'S INSANELY SIMPLE TO SIMPLY REACH OUT AND BECOME THEM. NOW, YOU'LL NOTICE THAT WHEN THEY TRY AND DO IT TO YOU IT NEVER WORKS? YOU'RE FINE, I CAN IMITATE THEM ALL AT WILL, BELIEVABLY. IT'S JUST A CLEAR DEMONSTRATION THAT I OWN THEIR ASSES. WHEN I'M NOT FEELING SO MELLOW I JUST PUT ONE POST IN A SERIES OF THEIRS AND THEN THEY SPEND THE REST OF THE NIGHT EXPLAINING TO EACH OTHER WHY IT'S NOT THEM WRITING IT. I KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE MY METHODS, AND THAT'S TOO BAD, BUT THERE YOU GO.
You're doing great, its just so easy to get careless when dealing with these clueless losers. Every time I think that I'm being set up by something they've written that is so bizarre they can't be serious, I realize they actually meant it.

Indiana Senate Calling For A 2nd U.S. Constitutional Convention
Indiana is halfway to becoming the first state to call for a second U.S. constitutional convention. The Senate voted Monday 32-18 in favor of a convention to consider amendments to rein in the federal government.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) contends the government has used its taxing power and its authority over interstate commerce to expand federal power over the states far beyond what the founders envisioned, and argues that shift won’t be solved by sending different representatives to Washington. He says a Constitutional amendment is the only remedy left.

I would like to take a moment, and a much needed breather, from maniacally judging your posts to make a serious and heartfelt post.
Most of you know me as "Waxman" (Not Surprized,the chubby Obama worshipper from an embarrassing hidden location), but I'm so much more than that. I'm caring, I'm giving, I'm sensual. Its just that as I get older and fatter, things have slowed down quite a bit for me. A couple of years ago you'd have never caught me posting for 12 straight hours because the phone would ring 5-6 times a night (and it'd be a different dude every time!!!). Now, I'm lucky if the janitor knocks on my door for a quickie after cleaning the community toilets. I guess what I'm REALLY saying is..... I need friends (lovers too!!). I'll do literally anything to earn your trust, and you can mop up the floor with me six ways from Sunday.
Please...leave your phone numbers and,,,

I would be as nuts as you if a took time to "carefully" read all the inane gibberish you right wing morons write. I can't believe you're getting an erection for what amounts to a typo.
You losers are so desperate to win at anything you jump up and down for silly shit like this .
How did you ever get to be an "OldRaider" thinking like that?
Does the word Communism mean anything to you? Know what it is?
Collective where everyone puts into the pot and everyone gets a certain ammount out. Just like Obama is doing now. re-distribution of wealth has no place in America.
Socialism/Communism has never worked for the people.
They work just fine until you run out of other people's money.
Obama is just now going to start learning that lesson when hina cuts him off. You can't borrow this kind of money and expect it to last forever--well maybe you can.

OBAMA THE BIG LIE wrote:
The ol’ double standard was alive and well last week, as former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Democrat of Illinois, pleaded guilty in a Washington federal court to stealing three-quarters of a million dollars from campaign funds.
No, the media were not defending Jackson’s seven-year crime spree, which included his wife, a onetime Chicago alderman, filing false income tax returns. Nor were they comparing Jackson favorably with other political miscreants&#8203;—&#82 03;although the Washington Post’s resident snarkmeister, Dana Milbank, came close:“Jackson’s problem,” he explained,“was that he did what everybody else does&#8203;—&#8203;but he took it to a new level of excess.”
No, it was the mournful, elegiac, even respectful, tone of the coverage that impressed The Scrapbook. This was not an occasion for harsh judgment or pointed satire, but a family misfortune&#8203;—&#82 03;a steep, poignant, relentless fall from grace&#8203;—&#8203;un folding in public view. As Jackson acknowledged his monumental thievery to the court, readers were treated to vignettes of his manifest sadness (“Tell everybody back home I’m sorry I let them down”), lamentations about his once-promising career, and descriptions of the family patriarch
This is small change compared to Bush's war-by-lies in Iraq. You talk about Jackson stealing 3/4 of a million.

That is peanuts compared to the billions of taxpayer dollars that went to the military-industrial complex for a war that didn't have to be fought.

And you can be sure some of that money went right into the pockets of the Republican Party as campaign contributions.

a new constitution from the people will most certainly include:
Universal health care of some kind.
Clarification of the Second Amendment.
End to gerrymandering.
Same sex marriage.
Right to abortion.
Political term limits.
Less difficult amendment process.
(all of which have over 50% approval in the polls)
take a min or two and check out how a constitutional convention works . The population of ghetos in urban centers dosnt mater in this case.

IT'S A LOT WORSE WHERE I AM, I FEAR. THEY SPEND THEIR ENTIRE ENERGIES CRITICIZING THE EFFORTS OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT THAT THEY THEMSELVES ELECTED WITH A MANDATE TO DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE DOING. IT'S A FORM OF INSANITY THAT'S HARD TO WATCH OR FOLLOW. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ATTACK THEMSELVES AND EVERYBODY ELSE, CEASELESSLY. IF YOU SAY RIGHT, THEY SAY UP. IF THEY SAY DOWN, THEN THEY SAY ACROSS. PERSONALLY, I'VE REACHED THE POINT WHERE I DON'T EVEN LISTEN BECAUSE IT'S JUST NONSENSE INTENDED TO DISTRACT FROM WHATEVER THEIR TRUE PURPOSE IS. THEIR TRUE PURPOSE IS TO DESTROY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THERE IS NO OTHER PURPOSE. THEY WILL HAPPILY ARGUE BOTH SIDES OF AN ARGUMENT AND EVEN INVENT NEW ONES FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT IF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WORK, CAN'T WORK, THAT, EVENTUALLY PEOPLE WILL SIMPLY IGNORE IT. YOU KNOW ALL THAT, I KNOW, BUT IT HELPS ME TO JUST SAY IT OUT LOUD SOMETIMES. I NEED TO BE MINDFUL OF THE PEOPLE I'M WORKING TO DESTROY, AND DESTROY THEM I WILL.
