Some quick words of gratitude to all my sockpuppets:(and I know who I am)
Thank you all so VERY much for giving me more positive judgits than the other posters are given. You all know how much that means to me! It makes me feel like I have accomplished something other than just getting myself committed to this psychiatric hospital, sitting around in my wheelchair in loaded depends all day. It is truly an act of kindness and much appreciated. Keep up the good work!
Gratefully, Not Surprized
Not Surprized! ROTFLMAO!

Obama has already buried the gun control issue, knowing it to be a loser.
A few of the fools still pushing this turkey will pay the price.
True, but I do believe Dianne Feinstein knows she has nothing to worry about pushing the issue and knows that she will be still be re-elected again in California after her 2nd attempt on the 2nd Amendment that her & Biden are pushing for again just like they did in 1994 with the Federal Assault Weapons Ban and why the Left wants her to lead the charge on the attack of the 2nd amendment politically because in California she has nothing to fear.

Ignorance is not only being taken advantage of by political evils but it is also slowly killing our political system.

Centralizing Education Policy within the Beltway has gone a long ways towards enhancing this deathly ignorance.

Politics is being commandeered by an unholy consortium formed between the Entertainment Industry and the White House.

Politics = Entertainment = Boy Messiah singing Al Green on Late Night = Moochelle dancing at the Oscars, giggling on the View and saving the children through diet and promoting Bloombergisms and Emanuelisms.....= Zero.

Meanwhile, as the music plays and audiences swoon and scream with delight.....Worm and Rappers love N. Korea, Drones are killing kids and spying domestically, Liberties are being curtailed, Rights being redefined downward,.....

...and the band plays on...

The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama on it.
The Postal Service noticed that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.
This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.
After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special
Presidential commission presented the following findings:

1. The stamp is in perfect order.
2. There is nothing wrong with the glue.
3. People are spitting on the wrong side

What We Have Here Is a Failure to Communicate. Sort Of.

It's hard to negotiate with people who don't even bother to understand the issue you're negotiating about.

Like any number of liberals, I have from time to time complained about the difficulty of having substantive arguments about politics when your opponents refuse to acknowledge plain facts about the world. It's hard to have a discussion about what to do about climate change, for instance, if the other person refuses to believe that climate change is occurring. It's hard to discuss how to handle market failures in health insurance when the other person holds that markets are always perfect and government health insurance is always more expensive. As frustrating as those kinds of impasses are, at least you're talking about complex systems that require at least some investment of time to understand.

But there's a rather incredible dance going on right now in the dispute over the budget that takes every stereotype liberals have about know-nothing Republicans and turns it up to 11. To sum it up, Democrats are being forced to negotiate with a group of people who are either so dumb they can't figure out what the White House's negotiating position is (unlikely) or so incredibly irresponsible that they don't care enough to find out, when doing so would take them about 30 seconds (probable). It's hard to find words to describe this kind of behavior. The Republican position is that this negotiation is of vital importance to the future of the country, indeed, so important that they may be willing to shut the government down and let the full faith and credit of the United States be destroyed if they don't get what they want; but they also can't be bothered to understand what it is the other side wants. And these people hold our nation's fate in their hands.

A brief explanation: President Obama is proposing a mix of spending cuts and tax increases to bring down the deficit. Republicans want only spending cuts. But Republicans are also insisting that President Obama has not, in fact, proposed any spending cuts, and wants only tax increases. Now, you may imagine that as a tactic of negotiation or public persuasion, politicians sometimes publicly take a position slightly more extreme than the one they sincerely hold, or temporarily pretend that something doesn't exist when it does. And you'd be right. But in this case, many Republicans—even those actually involved in budget negotiations—seem to be genuinely unaware of the administration's position. It's simply mind-boggling.
