Eman gets steamed and tattles on me to the Topix moderators. They block me and then I point out the ways the right wing morons abuse the site and just open a new login. I'm having fun using this as an object lesson to point out the hypocrisy of these idiots.

Funny how that's complete BS, remember the UN rejected Bush's proposed action.
Funny how the only lie was that there were no WMD in 2003 or 2004 or 2005 ...

Funny how 111 Democrats still knew what they already knew in 1998.

...and our government seems to be more than happy to allow it. Between sending our industry south of the border, offering free housing, food, education and continuing to allow them to wire billions of U.S. dollars back to their kin still living in Mexico, the value of the dollar will be less than zero and those "next" generations will be fighting for scraps of bread in the stores. As one of Colorado's former state treasurers said, "We are running out of people to tax."

Now go back inside your insulated bubble of denial. You won't be able to stay there much longer. Might as well enjoy it while you can.
Who is it scaring?

Not businesses with under 50 employees

Of those businesses with more than 50, the vast majority already offer health care.

The only people that are afraid are Republicans. They know the longer it remains the more people will like it & the stats will prove it works. The more Republicans will look like idiots.

Why else would Republicans want to repeal it or defund it.

This is a little brain teaser for all the liberals.
The IRS targeting investigation has identified emails between high ranking IRS and federal elections officials.
The investigation is also meeting resistance from high ranking IRS and federally elected officials to overturn all emails.
Now...let's see...what president resisted turning over requested tapes in another cover-up investigation and was forced to resign?
Raise your hands.
What President's order to read Americans e-mails from major U S telecommunications giants caused a Constitutional crisis . I 'll give you a hint . The Administration insider who opposed the President's order on legal grounds was just appointed to head a government agency of the Justice Department.

After the cherry picked fluff you can read the aggregate data Patrick:
"At a time when the Republican Party’s image is at a historic low, 62% of the public says the GOP is out of touch with the American people, 56% think it is not open to change and 52% say the party is too extreme."
http://www.people-press.org/2013/02/26/gop-se...
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 52% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents think the GOP leadership is talking the party in the wrong direction while just 37% think it's headed in the right direction.
"That disaffection is apparent in another measure: Just 21% of Americans in this survey identify themselves as Republicans, matching the fewest since November 2009. GOP allegiance has dropped from an annual average of 31% in 2003 to annual averages of 23 or 24% the past five years straight."

"At a time when the Republican Party’s image is at a historic low, 62% of the public says the GOP is out of touch with the American people, 56% think it is not open to change and 52% say the party is too extreme."

This is their problem from top to bottom. The t-p especially is trying to sell Americans a bill of goods that don't exist, doesn't benefit them, or only benefits a few.

They're still very much viewed as obstructionist to this day, and it doesn't appear they want to change or make any effort to change that perception anytime soon.

You should follow your advice in this case more often. I think your problem here is your lack of effort.

I've not forgotten how she "schooled" you on sharecropping by bringing up 40 Acres and a Mule. I've come up with this analogy but have yet to use it.

You were talking about giraffes so she produces a picture of an elephant and tells you you don't know what you're talking about.

That article clearly stated F&F targeted 17 Republicans to try and get more Republicans on their side because ALL Democrats already were.
Republicans refused to sign the bill and so it didn't work.
What don't you understand about this?
Here. You need to lighten up. Lovebird dances to polka.

Wow ... really???

(not talking about the dancing bird)

The Senate doesn't "sign" bills, they vote on them and Frist-R wouldn't even bring the bill to a vote because he'd lost too many R votes to bribery. They didn't need any D votes, it was obviously a very partisan piece of legislation so why would D's vote for it?

Republicans accepted bribes to kill Republican legislation in the Republican-held Senate.

That's as dumbed down as I can make it.

If you didn't understand it you should ask a grownup to 'splain it to you.

Otherwise your drive-bys just make you look silly.
