that little and still better than the empty suit that got elected. the difference is the lapdog MS media (Obama's personal dog meat) vetted Cain while blindly drooling over Obama.

You see, "carol," the thing about republicans is that they're instinctively greedy and competitive. They will literally do anything to "win" against another human being, even if "winning" means they're gonna die too. It's just what those people do. Here, come sit on my lap and I'll explain it to you.
Long ago and far away there was a land where bad people - conservatives generally, no matter what they called themselves - did horrible things to other people in the name of national progress (personal gain.) The things they did were sooooo horrible that it caused a genetic mutation in their victims rendering them incapable of ever trusting anyone again or of ever not being scared of loss.
As the survivors reproduced they not only passed along the mutation, they codified it, turned it into a religion of sorts. It's based on the premise that your fellow man will screw you given half a chance and not think twice about it, so you're better off screwing your neighbor first. It's a cynical reading of the Golden Rule but it's the truth nonetheless.
They knew that just coming right out and saying this would bring down the wrath of the people on their heads so they dressed it up in language which made it seem they were merely following god's instructions when he famously said, "GO FORTH AND LIE, CHEAT, AND STEAL TO GET YOU A PILE BEFORE IT'S ALL GONE!" OH, "AND DON' FO'GET TO PUT MY SHARE IN THE PLATE ON SATURDAY OR EVEN SUNDAY!"
Those people been playin' this game so long they fo'get they playin' it. They could be up to their nose in raw sewage and they'd still be tryin' to figure an angle that might allow them to capture the market in shit.
So you see, "carol," it's not that those folks are "bad," what they are is genetically scared of losin' their stuff. That? Oh, um, that's just my cane. I keep it there so it's handy if I want to stand up and stretch my legs.
Is that so douchebag? Then explain John Kerry docking his Yacht in Rhode Island until he was caught. Maybe you can explain why Al "Jazeera" Gore sold his TV network out of the goodness of his liberal heart?

Baawwwaaahhhh!!!

Show ID or no booze. Period. In some states, you cannot even remain on the premises if you refuse to show ID.
Even your wingmates abandoned your ignorance on this issue.

You are incorrect. In the State of Washington it is against the law to be in a bar/lounge without an ID card which indicates age. I have been asked for ID and I can only wish there was a question as to my age.
Recently I was in a bar and a young man came in and ordered a beer. He was asked for ID, said he was out training for Bloomsday, he was in sweats, no pockets. He had no ID and was not served.
Peace
Sounds like a police state to me. I've never been asked for an ID anywhere, that's ridiculous.

I gotta stand corrected. Looked at the receipt, and as it turns out it was boxes of 100 for $17.99, and he bought five of them. My bad. This is, however, considerably less than the .40 per bullet you folks are getting ripped for.

Sorry about your luck.

Dominican official links Daily Caller to alleged lies about Menendez

A top Dominican law enforcement official said Friday that a local lawyer has reported being paid by someone claiming to work for the conservative Web site the Daily Caller to find prostitutes who would lie and say they had sex for money with Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.).

The local lawyer told Dominican investigators that a foreign man, who identified himself as “Carlos,” had offered him $5,000 to find and pay women in the Caribbean nation willing to make the claims about Menendez, according to Jose Antonio Polanco, district attorney for the La Romana region, where the investigation is being conducted.

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.
Do you have early onset dementia? The Democrats drag up abortion issues? Which party brought forth over 1000 pieces of anti abortion legislation last year? Which party has brought forth the personhood bill, giving legal rights to eggs? Which party brought forth a bill making it a third degree felony for a woman to have an abortion, calling it tampering with evidence? Which party passed bills forcing women to submit to, and pay for, transvaginal probes, which is essentially rape by the state?
Which Speaker of the House, with zero bills passed, and a 20% approval rating said "my most important goal is to eliminate abortion forever in this country"?
You're so fos that I can smell it through the computer.

The Daily Caller Gets Burned By Their Own Menendez Source

The Daily Caller's lurid, fraudulent story of Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) patronizing Dominican prostitutes has taken yet another hit as the lawyer representing the prostitutes, Melanio Figueroa, has reportedly let loose with a variety of outlandish story-changing allegations, among them that he was paid and pressured by various media outlets (the Daily Caller among them) to fabricate the whole affair. Figueroa's credibility is now non-existent, which only serves to reinforce how wildly irresponsible the Daily Caller was to run with the story in the first place.

And so in summary, the Fed is printing money and growing wheat and purchasing as many bullets as they can get their hands on.

The net effect of all of this will be a 2nd Great Depression only this time the government will have enough ammo to pump 2 bullets into the head of every man, woman, and child living in the country, once they run out of drones, which goes without saying.

Homer on the pulse of rightwing thinking for today.

Luther Ghahate was a very cool little guy, the sort that you never forget. He was so proud of his Zuni culture and to be serving in the US Army that his pride was contagious.
Pride doesn't make a person bullet proof and Luther's name is on the Vietnam wall. I helped train him for war__that was no guarantee either I guess.
Zuni people are native American.
