10/11/2013 - Numbers from the latest Gallup poll reveal Americans’ confidence in the two-party dominated system has hit an all-time low, with only 18 percent saying they’re satisfied with the way the nation is being run.

“This is the lowest government satisfaction rating in Gallup’s history of asking the question dating back to 1971,” admitted the polling agency.

"TV ad puppets electrify Israeli gay rights debate

JERUSALEM (AP)- The goal was merely to promote clean energy in Israel - but television ads starring a pair of male puppets called "plug" and "socket" have instead unleashed a debate about gay pride.

The puppets, named Sheka and Teka in Hebrew, have appeared in ads for the state-owned Israel Electric Corp. for more than a decade. Israelis have long playfully questioned whether they might be gay. But the arrival of a baby puppet in the new campaign set off fresh speculation about their sexual orientation.

The ads highlight a striking paradox of the Holy Land: Although religion holds great sway and there is no civil marriage, gays have gained a widespread acceptance that is increasingly noted around the world. Gay activists demand the ad characters, who have a close but ambiguous relationship, officially come out of the closet...."

Silly, it was Nuc, Yuck and you who started the troll war of demanding proof for such idiocies as common knowledge, things irrelevant, things that can be easily found by searching or to what was an opinion.
No Surprise and perhaps others then trolled you back with the same moronic demands.
You're a liar. It's your quote that started it.

"""Refusing to post links to back up your claims contrary to history is not an argument -it is waving the white flag." - whatever""

Funny, you demand links from others, yet insist you needn't provide any.

You just wave your White Flag a hundred times a day.

It's obvious you're lying again. Your side has refused to meet with Obama,instead preferring to attempt to destroy him with cheap tricks that failed.
Q. Where's the results of Trump's Birth Certificate investigation??
Q. Where's the results of Sheriff Joe's Birth Certificate Investigation??
Funny how they swore they'd 'get the truth out', then said nothing when they found th eBC to be the real deal.
But the racism here continues. You're one of the instigators, with your constant slanderous attacks.
And you've lost every round, this one being the one that destroys the Repugnant PArty.
do you think its just merely a coincidence that this whole "Birther" issue of where President Obama was born has fallen off the Radar now that Ted Cruz is the darling of the Tea Party?

what really amazes me is that Republicans, especially the teabaggers refuse to see their hypocrisy.

For instance, suppose when Democrats controlled the house under President Dumbya, they attached a rider to the CR eliminating the Bush era tax cuts to the top 1% or eliminated coal, oil an farm industry tax subsidies or even better gun control measures and an assault weapons ban.

what do you think their reaction would be

The percentage of Americans rating the Republicans unfavorably. More than one-quarter of Republicans (27 percent) viewed their own party unfavorably. You and your party are living proof of that old quote from the bible "hate begets hate." Congrats!! Mission accomplished!

I posted Obama's ratings to counter your claim that Obama has the support of Americans.
Like everything in life, it's all relative.

Obama is faring far better than your side, and it's driving you even crazier!!

You guys are still having problems figuring this out.
Quotes and polls- as a courtesy- should have links.
To finish the quote-
"Again, "Talking Points" understands Obamacare is not good for the country, but that must be vividly proven in order for the Democrats to take a massive hit. And the only way that will happen is if the law collapses, which it well might. When Americans begin to see their insurance premiums, co-pays and deductibles go up and their doctors not readily available, there's going to be a lot of anger and the tide will turn."
hey Chicken Little wazzz up!?

so if BillO nailed that part of his 'Republicans are screwed' dissertation, then he must have nailed the first part.

and if i don't cite a quote i did it on purpose. why should i be the only one who has to hunt down right wing sources?
