Rand Paul Endorses Mitch McConnell, Deals Blow To Potential Tea Party Challenge
"Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) endorsed the reelection campaign of fellow Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday, the Senate minority leader's campaign manager told the Daily Caller, in the latest sign of a crystallizing partnership between the two Republicans.
During his 2010 Senate campaign, Paul latched on to the tea party movement, repeatedly taking aim at McConnell and the Republican establishment. McConnell had initially supported Paul's primary opponent, former Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson. While the Senate minority leader supported Paul after he won the contest, the son of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) maintained that he'd be a persistent thorn in McConnell's side.
But Paul's endorsement shows that the freshman senator's political calculations have changed since coming to Washington. With Kentucky tea party leaders champing at the bit to take advantage of polling that has shown McConnell particularly vulnerable to a challenge this election cycle, Paul has decided to abandon the forces that helped propel him to victory."

Rand Paul used the Teabaggers to get elected. Now he's becoming part of the establishment.
Teabaggers are such fools!!
Yawn. While on the subject of tea bagging. Your grandmama handles a good tea bag givin ol bubba a toothless Blumpkin. Plop plop, sguirt

We're living longet,, dummy.
Your original statement was:

"you mean those things most of us paid in advance for? "

I pointed out you haven't paid even a tiny portion of it, you get upset and revert to your base ignorance.

Some things never change.

BTW, you have it backwards.(No surprise!)

It's medical technology that drives up the costs.

Without such technology, we wouldn't be living any longer. Without modern diabetes drugs, folks like Carol would have been dead a decade ago.

Enrollment in SNAP has surged 70% since 2008, reaching a record 47.8 million Americans in December.
Even more shocking, that means 15% of the country receives the benefits, nearly double the rate as in 1975, when the U.S. suffered from soaring inflation, a recession and an oil crisis.

So how about this instead:

1. The money supply is adequate the way it is. We need to buy about a trillion and half dollars of our foreign debt and then that'll be the end of it. No more chinee landlords allowed.

2. Families are limited to 1 child per mother. No exceptions. We will use another 3 trillion dollars to cushion the blow as the older generations sicken and die.

3. The energy, insurance, and healthcare industries will be nationalized. No exceptions.

4. Anyone found to be shifting jobs or hiding money overseas will be imprisoned or killed in the case or repeat offenders. All economies will be local.

5. The Stock Market will be dissolved. But brokers will still be able to graze cattle at Trinity Church which will be open to tours.

That's pretty much it... for now. Ridiculous, you say? No more ridiculous than calling for more "growth" when the earth is already swimming in humans and their filthy litany of fears.

Does your bias have no limits? The History Channel is now part of your imagined rightwing Fox-type conspiracy?

The footage and never before seen clips of everything that went on behind the scenes was actually pretty amazing.

Did you know there was almost a fist fight between the Secret Service and the Texas police trying to get Kennedy's casket out of the hospital and onto Air Force One because of a law in Texas that said autoposies had to be performed in that state for forensic reasons?

Jacqueline, unfortunately, had to witness the whole thing. The Secret Service finally bulldozed through the police with the casket and with Jacqueline running beside it.

Guns were even drawn at one point. I had no idea any of that happened. Did you?

But the History Channel usually does a good job reporting actual events as they happened.

The housing industry has been the missing ingredient in the recovery of jobs lagging other industries at about 16% unemployment nationally, much higher than that in certain areas.
So does that mean you see something wrong with the Feds pumping up the economy?

Yes, they are.

Just like us. And we also have more oil than the Middle Eastern countries combined. But Obama prefers not to disturb it.

Plus, don't they block the Sunroof when you're driving?

Oh god save me! she's so dumb she'll keep yelling out you she loves you even after you've driven off with the rest of the team leaving her naked under the bleachers. The ONLY part of that pointless story that matters, carol, is that a Democratic President of the United States was assassinated in TEXAS. Do you think he'd be dead if he'd gone to Vermont or Massachusetts instead? Why is that, carol? Why do you suppose a President might be assassinated under EXTRAORDINARILY suspicious circumstances in one state and yet not in another? Hmmmmm? Hmmmmmm, carol?

Your lame attempts to make a TV Show appear to be an honest account proves you to be what we've always said about you.

A very badly educated ignoramus who is too lazy to read historical perspectives written by those who actually were there and instead relies on a TV dramatization to get her 'facts'.

Isn't that exactly what you did with the Terri Schiavo case??

Ignore the Doctors treating her in favor of politicians like Bill Frist and Jeb Bush, who ended up looking like complete fools, so badly it ended the political career of both Jeb and Frist. And badly damaged Dubya and all Repugnants in the process.

You're a not too bright person who is easily led.

To the point that you still insisted you were right, even as the autopsy proved she did not have any brain, which is just what her Doctors had said all along.

Same thing happened here. Carol got sucked in.

As the historical distance grows between now and the 'Camelot' Period, the Kennedy Family legacy is increasingly growing into The Great Fleecing.
Liberal Media created the Kennedy lies and those lies have become threadbare now where we can see through it all.
The list of Kennedy BS is shockingly long from the corrupt Daddy Kennedy to Chappaquiddick Kennedy to Jackie screwing anything that moved from Mafia playthings to him and little Bobby sharing Marilyn Monroe.
It is simply amazing just how powerful Liberal media can be. Look at the lies they tell today with the Boy Messiah. A generation from now, the 'Kennedy' Effect will come clear again and people will then ask once more "How did they fall for that crap back then?".
History repeats itself. With the Jerk-In-Chief, I can hear that repetition as a Liberal stutter.
That was an amazingly insightful post.

The assassination of any president always makes any criticism hands off.

But time also has a way of making it possible to take off the gloves at some point.
