WASHINGTON —As House Republicans began their five-week summer vacation, their leader, House Speaker John Boehner, urged them to rest up for “the many symbolic and meaningless votes that lie ahead.”
Mr. Boehner, while congratulating his colleagues on having voted to repeal Obamacare forty times, reminded his fellow-Republicans that their work is “far from over.”
“I want you to come back from vacation rested and refreshed, because we’ve got another year of futile, time-wasting votes to cast,” he said.“Only the strong will survive.”
According to Mr. Boehner, this year’s gruelling schedule of fake-repeal votes had been the G.O.P.’s “most physically punishing ever.”
Noting that the exhausting ordeal of frequent, pointless Obamacare votes had transformed his fellow House Republicans into hollowed-out husks of their former selves, the Speaker observed,“Purely symbolic voting may be even more exhausting than actual work.”
“It’s true that voting to repeal Obamacare has cost the American taxpayer over fifty million dollars,” he said.“But that’s nothing compared to the toll it’s taken on us.”
For his part, Mr. Boehner said he intends to spend August at the beach, as he always does, fruitlessly trying to change the rules of volleyball.
Obama spending over 700 million promoting Obamacare which is very unpopular even among unions and federal employees while Republicans spending 50 million to repeal it which will save Taxpayers Trillion of Tax Dollars sound like money being well Spent REPEAL, REPEAL, REPEAL!!!

<quoted text>Except it's not about that, it's about suppressing the vote. Our founding fathers would be outraged. To many people have died so that others had the right vote.
How about if they can't vote they don't have to pay taxes?
No taxation without representation.
Galt would gladly accept that deal.

In the early days of this country, everybody knew everybody at the polling place and ID was necessary.

Explain how voter ID suppresses any votes except for fraudulent votes.

I sent him a letter asking where that hunting lease was where you can go shoot lawyers.

What SS?
The "victim" was violating every hunting protocol. He thought he'd just wander over to some other hunter's location before the hunt was over.
Have you ever hunted before?

Can't say WND is exactly an unbiased source, so I did some research and the allegation is, if nothing else, suspicious.
Examiner, "We know that this administration is supplying weapons to the al-Nursa Front in Syria. We have heard the claim that the CIA was allegedly running guns in Benghazi. Evidence seems to also suggest the illegal weapons trafficking could have been the reason why four Americans were killed in Benghazi."
http://www.examiner.com/article/muslim-brothe...
However, apparently Senators McCain and Graham are also culpable according to this article - if any of it is true.
Considering the self-imposed censorship of the liberal media not to expose any wrongdoing on the part of this administration, we probably shouldn't hold our breath that this will even see the light of day even if it is true.
ROTFLMAO!!!! If you even QUESTION if they're biased or not shows how far right you are son!

A Smithsonian researcher announced at a press conference at the Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. that he had discovered a new mammal species that is a relative of the raccoon: the olinguito (oh-lin-GHEE-toe).

Unfortunately for you, I saw the real people who live in Ashe County on a real documentary talking about how the people there used to take enormous pride in being independent and carving a living out of the wilderness as their ancestors did - "mountain pride". And how they refused taking food stamps but a SNAP government worker, Brandi Legge, went about finding a way to get them dependent on the government anyway.
Had to do with government quotas and a nanny state, I believe.
The real people in that real documentary in Ashe County said lumber mills now can't find enough people to employ and restaurants can't fill waitress positions because the people there have gotten used to being taken care of there by Nanny Government.
How did those people survive all those years in the mountains before SNAP and Brandi Legge came along?
You're much too gullible for your own good.

I am intimately familiar with that part of the county__and you watched a documentary.
Do you ever think about what you post???
You obviously have no idea what you're talking about or have any knowledge of the details surrounding this particular county in North Carolina and how the government's intrusion affected the people there.

I also notice you never post any sites to back up anything you post that you claim are absolute facts.

If you know how to research, type in "food stamps in Ashe County" or "Brandi Legge wins SNAP award for Ashe County".

Or look up government food stamp quotas based on demographics, i.e. nanny state.

LOL! But, seriously Homer, we've been at this for 5 years! What an unusual phenomenon. Perhaps all these posts should be printed out into some sort of crazy coffee table book.
Hey, you could put all the rightwing posts(lies) on the right side pages and all the liberal/left posts on the left side and put the moderates/Independents like Homer's in the center margins, put the Libertarian's like Tenzing's on the outer edges and put DBwriter's upside down on the bottom of the pages(because most of his crap goes unread anyhows).

Bushism[s] Killed Reaganism[s]

As Bushism[s] replaced and in some respects repudiated Reaganism[s], it also destroyed the public’s confidence in Republican governance. The truth is that Bushism[s] had killed Reaganism[s] years before Obama started his first presidential campaign. When Bushism[s] tried to replace Reaganism[s] as the glue of a new political coalition, it ended up shattering the old coalition instead.

Obamacare is way more popular than the low rating of Congress republicans who are trying to trash Obamacare after they passed it in both Houses of Congress, signed into law by President Obama, and upheld as Constitutional by the ultra-extreme right wing Scalia 5 U S Supreme Court.

Hillary was more of a lock in 2006, when she had no opponents and 2008 was a sure Democrat year.
Now she faces poor health, old age, a less favorable year in 2016, and a powerful opponent in the White House.
And with all that, would still have the upper hand if she decides to run.

The only platform cons can run on is being obstructionists!
