Yes, it's tough on American families when the price of fuel required to drive Zoe to yoga practice is roughly half the cost of a gallon of bottled tap water. Woe unto us, sayeth you.

That is sheer nonsense, and you are a fool to state such nonsense.

To equate other stuff with same sex marriage proves you to be another moron who deals in hatred, not facts.

You idiots have used those same stupid arguments for decades, America has rejected them and you.

Now get thee out of the way. There is a new majority in America, and hateful, bigoted, uneducated freaks like you have no place in it!!

I'll wager your daughters laugh at your 'quaint' outdated beliefs. Probably behind your back when you roll in drunk.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Justice Antonin Scalia dropped a bombshell on the Supreme Court today, announcing his decision to resign from the Court “effective immediately” and leave the United States forever.

Calling this week “by far the worst week of my life,” Justice Scalia lashed out at his fellow-Justices and the nation, saying,“I don’t want to live in a sick, sick country that thinks the way this country apparently thinks.”


Justice Scalia said that he had considered fleeing to Canada,“but they not only have gay marriage but also national health care, which is almost as evil.”

He said the fact that nations around the world recognizing same-sex marriage are “falling like deviant dominoes” would not deter him from leaving the United States:“There are plenty of other countries that still feel the way I do. I’ll move to Iran if I have to.”

Throwing off his robe in a dramatic gesture, Justice Scalia reserved his harshest parting shot for his fellow-Justices, screaming,“Damn you! Damn each and every one of you to hell! You call yourself judges? That’s a good one. You’re nothing but animals!”

Breathing heavily after his tirade, he turned to Justice Clarence Thomas and said,“Except you, Clarence. Are you coming with me?”

Justice Thomas said nothing in reply.

USA:

Citizens still worth $50 TRILLION dollars, net. Today. After all the messes.

Problem: greedy top one percent OWNS 90% of that.

Greedy top one percent GOP buy protection from right wing clowns who lowered their taxes and promise to shift all taxation to the poorest.

USA OWES $16.

I think we should tell government to stop wasteful spending, reform entitlement programs and clean up their own mess.
Then there would not be a 70% surge in government dependency since 2008 to need food stamps.

The 'disease' I suspect, is that you think you think. But, just to humor you a little - I'm giving you a little rope here, dear, don't waste it - why do you think there's a 70% "surge" in government dependency in the period you describe? Specifically, what's changed in the last, say, 20 years or so? Events don't occur in a vacuum, carol, look around, think critically, what's different now then it was 20 years ago? I hate to repeat myself but "financial dependency," like life, does not come in convenient 4 year packages. What do you suppose the "disease" is that caused it, sweetie?

Perhaps you could bail him out?

WAYNESVILLE, Ohio — An Ohio landlord accused of whipping an adult tenant with a belt on his bare buttocks for falling behind on his rent has been accused of whipping another man with a belt and a paddle.

This time, according to The Dayton Daily News (), the accusations came in a lawsuit. It was filed this week in Warren County and accuses 53-year-old Ronald Kronenberger of spanking a mentally disabled man at his office at a supermarket. http://bit.ly/13BMgjD

Kronenberger was accused of whipping the first man Jan. 22 in his office. A magistrate said he would dismiss the assault charge in six months if Kronenberger has no contact with the tenant and stays out of trouble.

Something happened. He flipped out again!!

He dropped Galt and came back as Bubba. He screwed up and left his CA proxy stay with Bubba for the first message. He's been a bit quiet as Bubba.

Somebody must have really lit him up.

This is how he behaves when someone cuts him to the core.

It's rather nice to not see the phony Galt pontificating about things he knows nothing about.

George Sanders To Be Sentenced For 'Mercy Killing' Wife, Virginia Sanders

"It was just the last straw," Sanders said. "She didn't want to go to that hospital ... start cutting her toes off."

He said he talked it over with his wife and she begged him to kill her.

"I said,`I can't do it honey,'" he told police. "She says,`Yes you can.'"

Sanders said he got his revolver and wrapped a towel around it so the bullet wouldn't go into the kitchen.

"She says,`Is this going to hurt,' and I said,`You won't feel a thing,'" he said.
"She was saying,`Do it. Do it. Do it.' And I just let it go," Sanders added.

He sat in the room at the sheriff's office for about five hours as his wife was hospitalized. The bullet didn't kill her. She died a few days later.
"I sit here and I don't know how I could have done that," Sanders said. "It seemed to make sense at the time."

The Next Republican President and the “Republican Carter”

....When they were losing almost every presidential election between 1968 and 1992, Democrats always controlled the Senate and the House, and often controlled both by fairly wide margins, but they usually weren’t trusted with the Presidency. This period of Republican success in presidential elections has biased most in the party to think of the Presidency as something that their party is supposed to control, since for a long time the executive was the only branch that Republicans usually did control, so most Republicans aren’t going to be satisfied until they can start winning presidential elections with some regularity again. As long as the GOP and movement conservatism lack a “reputation for competence,” as Dan says, and “the emotional resonances that come with being the party of America,” Republicans will be seen as the less responsible, less trustworthy party, at least when it comes to presidential elections. Republicans may control the House and may win control of the Senate next year, but that could in large part because most Americans don’t want to trust them with the Presidency. That is due mostly to the toxic legacy of the last president, who probably already qualifies as the Republican equivalent of Carter in terms of the political damage he did to his party and the harm his tenure did to the country.

Murder's OK, But No Torture. We're Liberals

by: thomas e. brewton


To understand the grotesque hypocrisy of liberal-progressives we must view it from the perspective of their religion of socialism.

Let's immediately dispatch the moralistic protestations of liberal- progressives that any degree of rough interrogation of terrorists, even to save thousands of lives from planned attacks, is unconscionable. Liberal-progressives grow weak-kneed contemplating the confinement and interrogation of a few hundred terrorist thugs, while aggressively murdering millions of babies.

President Obama supports the slaughter without judicial due process of babies via abortion, which is reminiscent of the an earlier pagan worship of the god Molech, requiring the sacrifice of infants. At the same time, the President's fellow liberal-progressives hold street demonstrations and candle-light vigils to protest execution of vile murderers and rapists and to protest incarceration of criminals. These are pagan rituals oozing from the gospel of Jean- Jacques Rousseau, who believed that private property was the root of all evil and, in particular, the cause of crime and wars.
