I'm so worried we're headed into the darkness. I found myself in church today praying for the strength to keep on going.

<quoted text>"Rightwinger " eh? Haven't been called that in a while. I'm much more accustomed to 'leftist broad','liberal lesbian', the ever-popular 'whack-a-loon feminazi', and variations of all of the above. I assume it's because I'm in favor of retaining the ownership of my uterus, and don't believe that marriage should be withheld from all but one group of consenting adults. Also, that I'm not in favor of oligarchy, theocracy, or fascism, and don't identify myself as 'religious' in any way shape or form.
The fact that I am in favor of maintaining individual rights, over the placidity of any given herd, usually goes unnoticed by those who call me socialist-leaning, bleeding heart, or any other term denoting 'left of center'.
In actuality, I'm a fiscal conservative, and a social liberal. That made me a centrist when I first registered to vote, but there hasn't been a centrist on the National ballot for a few decades now. I still consider myself to be mostly conservative, but there hasn't been one of those on my State ballot since Ronald Reagan entered office. Buncha Republicans, mind, just no conservatives. "Republicans" who are more interested in whether or not the Bible can be taught in schools, than whether or not the schools have effective teachers; the ones who are more concerned with arresting and deporting illegal residents, than in prosecuting folks for the illegal job offers bringing them here in the first place. The ones who want to lay a Canadian Oil pipeline through the majority of the natural aquifers in the central section of the United States, and are willing to accept 'responsibility' for any leaks, in exchange for a maximum of 20,000 moderately-paid jobs, estimated to last 3 years at the outside. The ones who think it's the right of the religious to dictate everyone's morality, and are determined to legislate their version. The ones who believe socializing risk and privatizing profits is known as 'capitalism'.
Those guys give "Republicans" a whole new gig from the one I signed up for lo these many years ago...and many of my detractors exemplify the rubric of 'not with us = against us'. I don't get called a rightie, much.

Yes, it was LBJ's war. But he was ending it.(see how I can openly blame Kennedy & LBJ & Eisenhower for the Vietnam disaster.)

On this auspicious day, the anniversary of the Iraq invasion to confiscate Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, I just want to thank our troops for wasting trillions of dollars and then losing a war against a handful of ignorant peasants. Good job, you guys.

Another fallacy of the liberal mindset is that everybody should get a college education.
The results is millions of kids piling up massive debt getting worthless degrees from third-rate diploma mills so that they can compete for jobs that do not require a college degree.
Great post....I agree with you a 100%.
I have post that vary same opinion on my old thread many times.
We have way too many young adults going to collage.
If this trend continues, the degrees will have little more
value then a HS dipl.

And this notion that many business have a need for millions
of unfilled jobs because there are not any trained or any skilled
worker to fill these job, is way overstated.
Iam sure that may of these jobs could be filled, if the HR people
would just do their jobs and stop being so short sighted and
think outside the box a little.

carol-the-impostor views the world subjectively, innocently believing that what he does to himself must be done by all the other billions on this planet.

Stuffing every orifice he can find on his body with something handy must be the norm, he thinks. I'm sure he can be accommodated by someone willing to fulfill his dreams.

If he's willing to remove his teeth.

Senate Republicans Not Eager To Vote On Ryan Budget

Senate Republicans aren’t so eager to vote on the Paul Ryan budget.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the top Republican on the Budget Committee, told a handful of reporters Tuesday that Republicans may not offer the Ryan plan as an amendment when Democrats bring up their budget resolution for a vote later this week.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryan’s budget doesn’t come up one way or the other in this process,” Sessions said on the same afternoon that his caucus met with Ryan on the budget. He praised the House budget chief’s work as “honest” and “wonderful” but said Senate Republicans “might have different views” on how to move forward.

As Republican politicians insist that the Obama administration has "exaggerated" the effects of sequestration, people around the country are beginning to see for themselves what the results of the $85 billion in budget cuts are: They're losing their jobs.

Thousands of federal employees are facing unpaid time off as agencies determine that they will have to furlough workers to absorb the cuts.

But other workers -- including some in the private sector -- are losing their jobs altogether, underscoring just how much daily life for many people is tied to a functioning government.
