Boehner has made a good start by refusing to bend to pressure and further increase already burdensome taxation in response to the so-called "sequester."
Keep up the good work.
We can wait out Obama.
A good start? He hasn't had an approval rating above 25%! He has passed nothing! He's a fool and so are you and the rest of the fringe nuts. Your party is totally screwed, so bully for you.
You'll be long dead before another Republican ever gets near the White House, so fine by me.

Ellison is entitled to his opinions. The problem is his boorish behavior in presenting same. The image of an out-of-control black man just helps scare people away.
Is an "out-of-control black man" scarier than an out-of-control white guy like O'Reilly on a rant?

No, Obama is not a dictator, but he sure as hell wants to be and he sure as hell acts like it when he pisses on the United States Constitution at every opportunity.
Do you have some examples of these Constitutional abuses you would like to share with the group?

<quoted text>Sheesh both you and Galt. Are you two actually trying to dissuade me from voting for the Republican? Is this how Republicans get out the vote? No wonder your party is so fcked up.
Like I said, that won't help. The machines are programmed to steal the votes. I reference 70 locations in just the state of Ohio where, out of hundreds of thousands of voters, not one goddam crackhead or welfare slug or illiterate dropout or elderly person with very poor eyesight pressed the wrong button by mistake. That is an impossibility.
So, thanks for the thought, but we do not live in a Democracy anymore. All that is necessary for the Democrats to do now is get rid of the Constitution.
If the Democrats can eliminate the Second Amendment, the rest of the Constitution will soon after be done away with, too.
What type of government do you think the Democrats have in mind to replace the constitutional republic with?

Or, perhaps you have an explanation how hundreds of thousands of people can execute perfectly an order all of them agreed to obey. To not find one person in hundreds of thousands that thought Romney was a better choice is an impossiblilty, considering Romney got roughly half the votes across the country.

Next time, don't be so stupid you write a program to steal all the goddam votes. How about what they did in most of the other polling places, write a program that steals one in three, or one in four votes.

So, what's your explanation as to how the human population became perfectly synchronized with a computer.

Fine! You and Galt just talked me into voting for Hillary, I hope you both are satisfied. Kicked out of the Republican party before I could even join.

Are you really that intimidated by me?
By the way, I don't think I'm any smarter than many others on here. Which is what you said about me once. In fact, many others are much smarter than me.
But I do have a lot of common sense and care very deeply about the direction this country is going.
So why don't you be the man you claim to be and tell me why I'm wrong behind your own name and standing on your own two feet?
Afternoon, dumb carol. I only have a minute, but I just had to point out to you that "Which is what you said about me once." is a sentence fragment and "much smarter than me" uses the wrong case pronoun. Maybe you should use the "nurse" lie today instead of the other one.

Druckenmiller Sees Storm Worse Than ’08 as Seniors Steal
Stan Druckenmiller, one of the best- performing hedge fund managers of the past three decades, has a warning for the youth of America: Don’t let your grandparents steal your money.
Druckenmiller, 59, said the mushrooming costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, with unfunded liabilities as high as $211 trillion, will bankrupt the nation’s youth and pose a much greater danger than the country’s $16 trillion of debt currently being debated in Congress.
“While everybody is focusing on the here and now, there’s a much, much bigger storm that’s about to hit,” Druckenmiller said in an hour-long interview with Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg Television’s Market Makers.“I am not against seniors. What I am against is current seniors stealing from future seniors.”
Druckenmiller said unsustainable spending will eventually result in a crisis worse than the financial meltdown of 2008, when $29 trillion was erased from global equity markets. What’s particularly troubling, he said, is that government expenditures related to programs for the elderly rocketed in the past two decades, even before the first baby boomers, those born in 1946, started turning 65.
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-03-01/druc...
I've been saying that for years. Although I said $140 trillion. I don't have any problem believing $221 trillion though.

Will Israel Decide When America Goes to War?

AIPAC, which gathers in Washington for a show of strength this coming week (there will be protests), is reportedly making support for the Graham-Menendez resolution one of its main “asks” when they send lobbyists up to Capitol Hill. During the Hagel confirmation hearings, Graham dared the Nebraskan to name some of the “stupid” things AIPAC makes the Senate do. Hagel didn’t rise to the bait, but he if had, he could have replied that trying to bind the United States to Israeli decisions about bombing Iran would be one of them.
