During my temporary absence a while back, I went to another website and, after a few weeks, lo and behold, Tenzing showed up.
He actually found me and stated as such. I even had a different topix name. But instead of joining in, he disappeared.
Then when I ventured back on here seeing my pretend namesake had not posted in over a week, he showed up for a few posts and then disappeared again.
Tenzing left but my pretend namesake reappeared as soon as I started posting again.
Tenzing I can take. The other one is a bit creepy.

What a wonderful picture you paint: The great sweaty, hawg-straddling oaf milling around with his be-gutted herd, looking around like a paranoid wildebeest at the gun show for signs of "infiltrators." Then, when he "hits the jackpot," he whips out his cell phone and calls "the wife."
"Hey, babe, you ain't gonna buhlieve what ah found ... should last us for the next hunnert years or so ..."

Too bad you're just a Rmoney voter, still unable to accept the fact that you voted for a reject, the true Anti-Christ Mormon.

Gotta love the stupidity of the right. It guarantees all future Presidents will be Democrats!!

Fundamentalist Christians are a drag on the Republican Party.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for a mass, nonviolent protest in Detroit against the new emergency financial manager at a rally this morning at city hall.

The activists alongside Jackson pledged to file a lawsuit next week challenging the constitutionality of Michigan's new emergency manager law, which takes effect Thursday and grants broad powers to the incoming EFM, Kevyn Orr.

Jackson, who was joined by Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson and Congressman John Conyers, also called on the U.S. Department of Justice to intervene to protect Detroiters' right to vote.

"Detroit cannot be reduced to a rummage sale," Jackson said.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking a stand on something as important as protecting human life especially when it's the most vulnerable who have no voice.

It's only because liberals drag up the issue of abortion every election cycle as a tool to get votes from women who think killing the life they created is their right.

It's also a liberal tactic every election year to put conservatives in the position of having to defend taking a stand on protecting life. They even turned it into some stupid idiotic war against women.

All Republicans need to say is "I'm pro-life" and leave it at that. Enough said.

The Senate on Thursday voted to repeal a sales tax on medical devices that is part of President Obama’s health-care law, a rare bipartisan attempt to strip away a section of the controversial reforms.

Sens. Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, and Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, led the amendment, which passed on a 79-20 vote during debate over the chamber’s budget plan for the coming fiscal year.

As part of debate over the spending blueprint, the vote does not have the force of law. However, it showed that economic forces in Democrats’ home states hold enough sway for senators to turn against specific provisions within the Affordable Care Act.

“Today’s bipartisan vote to repeal the medical device tax is an important step in the right direction,” said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.“Unfortunately, Obamacare remains a job-killer that grows the government and slows the economy, which is why it’s important to repeal the whole thing.”

Ms. Klobuchar said Minnesota contains 400 medical device companies that employ 35,000 people, amounting to “one of the bright spots in America’s economy.” She said the 2.3 percent tax stifles innovation and threatens America’s position as the top exporter of medical devices.

“While I’m proud to be a champion of [the health care law], I believe that the medical device tax is just not the way to pay for it,” said Sen. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat, during floor debate.

Ms. Klobuchar and Mr. Franken have joined Sens. Bob Casey Jr., Pennsylvania Democrat, and Joe Donnelly, Indiana Democrat, in sponsoring Mr. Hatch’s bill.

Republican amendments to the Senate's budget proposal would require President Obama and Vice President Biden to get their medical care through the new exchanges created by Obama's signature healthcare law.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) both offered amendments to move the president and vice president into the healthcare law's exchanges.

After the Affordable Care Act passed, the White House said Obama would enroll in an exchange once the time came in 2014. Collins and Ayotte's amendments would require the president, the vice president and the Cabinet to put their premiums where their politics are.
