If you find out your kid has been cheating do you call the teacher and tell him to quit catching your kid or do you tell your kid to quit cheating?
If it is you, you only whine when it is not you or your side that is cheating. Are you still whining about judgits, weasel? Who is Jimmy, nutjob?

The vote was 70/30 (close) in favor of the war, and included “yes” votes from Senate Democrats such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and Harry Reid. While the liberals claim that it was Bush who solely brought us into the war, they dodge the simple fact that authorization could have easily been denied!
The Democrats held a majority of 51-49 in the Senate, and could have simply blocked the vote. However, they stood with President Bush and overwhelmingly supported the war 3-1. If liberals are so anti-War, how come they never share blame for starting the Iraq War?
BITE ME!
Joseph Goebbels said that repeating a lie long enough would eventually give a ring of truth. The Cways of this country are working overtime to make that come true.

The rumors we hear about republicans are as true as the ones we hear about you..

When posting on Topix, there is a fine line between "what's on your mind AllArnerican1" and "You should probably see a therapist about this?"

I see Israel is starting a 'Palestinian Only' bus line... seems perfectly reasonable. I wonder if Obama will condemn the measure as blatantly Islamophobic.

Liar.
Banks were forced to quit discriminating against minorities.
They lost in court because they would give loans to whites and not to blacks even though they had equivalent financials.
You have the worldview of a child, ImaginaryDave, and you refuse to grow up. Go ahead. Stamp your feet and turn blue.

Investor's Daily - Racial Arsonists' New Target: FICO Credit Scoring:

Most web searches for credit worthiness comparisons between ethnicities will give you mealy-mouthed ho-hum BS. You have to dig hard and don't even consider looking at the Fed pages. They will print ten paragraphs to explain racial credit rating differences and, after you've read them, your head will become blank. This is intentional.

Or, if you want your head to spin over more "racial sensitivity" BS, just read your own childish postings, ImaginaryDave.

The economic face of California:
Disproportionate number of illegals. Decades of fiscal irresponsibility by a Democratic controlled legislature. State workers no longer working 40 hour weeks. Borrowing $1.7 million per hour. Credit rating plummeting to bottom of 50 states. Lenders rethinking lending any more money to the Golden State. Businesses moving to other states.
Sad but true. Is this the way we want the nation to go too? California is Democrat leadership at its finest. Or sleaziest. Whichever.
There used to be a Utopia, CA but it slid into the Pacific Ocean a long time ago.

There is a huge difference between aid to a dependable ally like Israel and aid to an enemy like the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.

Ronald Reagan was “The Great Communicator.” So then, pray tell, what does that make John Boehner?
....Boehner, along with McConnell, Reid, and Pelosi, met with Obama this past Friday afternoon, ostensibly to discuss the sequester, but in actuality a staged event to give the White House additional talking points. Immediately after, Boehner met with David Gregory for an exclusive interview, the only one that he gave for the all-important weekend news cycle..
So, why, please tell me, why NBC? What genius decided that was the BEST forum.(Possibly the Speaker’s media guru is, like someone formerly with the Romney campaign, one who believes that the media isn’t really biased?) The entire network is completely in the tank for the Obama administration. If they wanted to avoid FOX ( and the stigma of seeming to seek a “safe haven,”) CBS or ABC would have been far better choices. Both are more balanced than NBC, and have actually challenged the administration on some issues. As just one option, ABC’s Rick Klein would have been an excellent choice.
Boehner is clearly not comfortable in this element ( possibly because he can’t smoke on camera?) Gregory dominated him, interrupting often, at one point telling Boehner,“Mr. Speaker, that’s not just true.” Gregory ( though admittedly it is hard to fathom) actually came across as the one with far more gravitas. Boehner diminishes the position, the authority, of the Speaker. Unlike Reagan, Boehner unfortunately does come across as simple, and worse, he is most definitely NOT likable.
So why then does he take to the airways?
Boehner banally recited the same talking points, almost ad nauseum.“The House has twice acted, it’s time for the Senate to act. Washington doesn’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.” Yada, yada, yada…..
The Speaker is known for his one minute ( or less ) press conferences. That is probably the extent of his ability to communicate. Here, given 15 minutes to reach the American people, he ceded control to Gregory, and was completely unable to offer any cogent explanation of the Republican philosophy of conservative governance.
http://www.redstate.com/gawken/2013/03/03/ron...
and i don't find it ironic at all that a complete idiot is in charge of a Republican House in 2013.
which has to beg the question...why is the Tea Party mad at John? i'd think they'd embrace one of their own.
Unlike Obama, whose idea of a tough interviewer is Oprah, Boehner is willing to take on the enemy on their own turf.

Obama is the worst economic President ever. No President since Roosevelt has presided over such a dismal growth and unemployment rate. 2M+ jobs lost and this man is preaching gun control and immigration. It is obvious this man doesn't give a crap about the economy.
Now the sequester comes along although both sides knew about it over a year ago and we have another crisis. And both sides are to blame for any outcomes not positive although the media will make sure the spin is against the conservatives.
Both parties represent the special interests, getting fat off of perks and becoming millionaires many times over while in office. And we foolish Americans keep electing them. We have created this situation.
You may say Obama isn't like that. Actions speak louder than words and Obama's actions are every bit special interest and letting the rich court him. He talks a good game and may of you have bought this crap. I can appreciate voting for "anyone other than Bush" in 2008. What I can't understand is how this failure got re-elected.
Shame on us for we deserve the hate our children and grandchildren will have for us for our poor stewardship.
Only racists are dissatisfied with economic growth of less than 1% when the black man is trying his best. It isn't Obama's fault that his best can't cut the mustard in a racist society.

So Illinois, what has this President done for you?
Illinois unemployment is higher than when he took office. The most recent information shows that Illinois residents getting food stamps is approaching 1M households and about twice that amount of people getting fed by the government.
Illinois state debt is the fourth highest in the nation, with each state resident owing $21K+. The credit/bond rating for the state is 49th.
And Illinois residents keep electing the same party to office?
Not Illinois as a whole, but Chicago/Cook County.

The rest of the state would like to secede.
