Son this guy is a switch hitter…Dutschke – who unsuccessfully ran as a Democrat for Lee County election commissioner in 2008, so what’s your Point?
That he lacks logic. Because a person belongs to a party does not make the whole party evil and like them. Using his logic the Boston Bombers are just another one of those wing-nut Progressives as they supported Obama.

You'd probably pay your employees to have orgies on your dime.
At least Clinton confessed and admitted his actions were "morally indefensible".
That's all it takes to be forgiven.
O'Reilly has never been the president or the leader of the nation. He stepped over the line flirting and became a victim himself of extortion and blackmail.
Can you distinguish the difference?
Clinton knew they were wrong which leaves Dave, Nuk and Sonic's moral compasses broken.

RealDave and Realtime can redeem themselves by agreeing with Clinton.
I never said I agreed with his actions.

Carol, My God, you are still lying about this.
The CRA never ever said banks had to loan money to people who could not afford to pay it back.
Oh, really now? Even your side would discredit this assumption. If they were honest.

Why do you think there were so many bad loans that no one ended up making a supposed profit from buying which ultimatey caused the collapse?

Why were there so many houses sitting empty because of massive foreclosures?

Maybe it's you living in a parallel universe.

in about 5 minutes some Topix nutjob will be trying to say that a guy who ran as a Republican for public office has now somehow become a Democrat.
A nut job is a person who A. thinks that a person identifies a whole party B. does not realize that people do switch parties and this is poor/childish defense if the truth is he played on both teams. Makes me think you already knew this was true.

In 2005, Repugnants controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency. If Bush wanted something, he would have gotten it from a Repugnant Congress!! DUH!!
To say it's not Bush's fault, as Chief Repugnant in Charge, is as stupid as so many of the claims you make in his defense.
Here's the truth about Bush and housing;
""As early as February 2002, Bush said at a conference on retirement savings,“I want America to be an ownership society, a society where a life of work becomes a retirement of independence.” Even as Texas governor, he told senior citizens:“Ownership in our society should not be an exclusive club.... Everyone should be a part owner in the American dream.”

Bush ignored the housing bubble and let it grow.
Your lies to the contrary are just that, lies, filthy ones.
Much like your lies concerning the Iraq War.
You fault people who were lied to for voting based on a pack of lies presented by Bush and Cheney.
You're really sick.
You really don't sound very bright. Skipped reading your post and its childish name calling

Hey clueless fk, Carol was talking about the president, not TV & radio people, or worse yet, frikkin actors. A moron like you does not have the ability to put things in context.
Carol is correct and not a hypocrite, but you sure are an airhead and it's no wonder you make a good Obama voter.
Comparing Clinton to TV actors on the right demonstrates what a moron you are.
Nutjob!

Same stupid sock, eh Waxturd??

Larry Craig was a Repugnant Senator. A very gay one.

David Vitter is a Repugnant Senator. A very sick one, wearing diapers and visiting prostitutes.

John Ensign was a Repugnant Senator. A very hypocritical one. Having an affair with a woman staffer, then trying to buy his way out of it.

Mark Foley was a Repugnant Congressman. One who preyed on young Congressional pages - all males.

You're such a fool, they're all Repugnant politicians who abused their office and performed disgusting sexual behaviors.

Figures you'd come up with such a stupid argument. Looks like you need some of your other socks to make a compelling argument, not the stupid one you just offered.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Time for you to go. You spend your entire life on this thread with your various socks. Go take the wheelchair outside and get some fresh air, you old fool.

Yes. Anyone who smokes is dumb, period.

At your age, you should know better. You're in your 60's and still smoke?? You likely have COPD already, based on your smoking, weight, lack of exercise and total devotion to Topix.

And you have diabetes to boot??

Do you have any idea what sort of risk diabetics who smoke place themselves in??

You like to come here and offer 'lessons'. Here's one for you, smokey;

""Smoking is a health hazard for anyone, but for people with diabetes or a high risk of developing the disease, lighting up can contribute to serious health complications.

Researchers have long known that diabetes patients who smoke have higher blood sugar levels, making their disease more difficult to control and putting them at greater danger of developing complications such as blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure and heart problems. Now a new study offers the most definitive evidence why: the nicotine in cigarettes.

Xiao-Chuan Liu, a professor of chemistry at the California State Polytechnic University, presented results from his study of blood samples from smokers at the American Chemical Society national meeting and exposition. He found that nicotine, when added to human blood samples, raised levels of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) by as much as 34%. Liu expects a similar effect occurs with diabetic smokers, whom he hopes to test in a follow up study.

Hemoglobin A1c — a combination of hemoglobin (which ferries oxygen) and glucose — is a standard indicator of blood sugar content in the body.

Doctors always knew smoking can make diabetes worse, but, Liu says,“now we know why. It’s the nicotine. This study also implies that if you are a smoker, and not diabetic, that your chances of developing diabetes is higher.”

The higher A1c levels rise in the blood, he says, the more likely it is that other protein complexes, which build up in various tissues of the body, from the eyes, heart and blood vessels, can form, leading to blockages in circulation and other complications.

But perhaps more importantly, the results also suggest that nicotine replacement products such as patches and nicotine-containing electronic cigarettes, aren’t a safe option for diabetes patients either. Because they still contain nicotine, these products are just as likely to boost A1c levels as cigarettes are.“In order to minimize your chances of developing diabetes or diabetic complications, you need to quit smoking,” says Liu. Even it means going cold turkey.""
