Normal people handle their business, never stopping to worry about leeches. Knowing, a shift in the tide &, they themselves can be drowning! Therefore, understanding the struggle of those beneath them in societal status. The only people who find time to complain are, those with a leech mentality inside that they're trying to hide!

We are all conservatives to a degree, where was your conservative principles for eight years of out of control spending and two botch wars and no restriction on Wall Street that have proven disasterous and still increasing our debt by trillions. Most sane people will go to the edge of a cliff but only the far right and baggers will go over and they continue to prove that still. Obama inherited eight years of blind leadership and not a peep from the right, now magically you are all fiscal geniuses.

What exactly is a regular white person? A Christian? Did you not know that Jewish is a religion, not a race! See, you learn something everyday. Looking for sympathy trying to put yourself in black people shoes, huh?

Who are you to judge what employment is meaningful &, what's not? Which is more important, the designer or the manufacturer? A rational person would know, both need each other equally. You on the other hand would say," he who makes the most money!"

What's Your point? Anyone on this thread with an ounce of truth in them will tell you, I've been telling folks about them polls since before the election. A small sample can't speak for the entire country but, the opposite applies in reverse form. Last election was proof!

Grow Up, Tea Party

Boy, is Conor Friedersdorf ever right. Excerpt:

I don’t think Tea Partiers are icky, and neither do lots of their critics. If I have time, I clarify that many of the people I respect most in the world, including members of my own family from multiple generations, are Tea Party supporters. Some have even attended Tea Party rallies. I note that I don’t, in fact, live on the East Coast*, that I am as bothered as they are at establishment assumptions about what constitutes seriousness in American politics, and that I would love nothing more than a reformed, improved Tea Party that successfully advanced liberty, free markets, and a sustainable safety net.

But sometimes I find the exquisite sensitivity of these Tea Party correspondents exhausting. I tire of engaging with people who present themselves as my put-upon victims, wronged by prejudices I do not harbor, especially if they start quoting Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh, which makes me suspect that projection is a factor. That is to say, they harbor general disdain for broad categories of cultural or ideological adversaries—liberals, atheists, community organizers, academics, public employees, journalists—and presume that anyone arguing with them must harbor a similar disdain in their political disagreements.

Yes, some people criticize Tea Partiers out of cultural prejudice. Get over it. There is plenty of criticism grounded in honestly-held disagreements too.

That’s what I’ve come to see as a defining characteristic not only of many Tea Partiers, but of many Republicans: an intense personalization of politics, such that it makes it impossible to disagree in good faith with them. They can be such drama queens, believing emotively that feeling something must be true makes it true — something that renders it impervious to criticism, because you can’t criticize somebody’s feelings — and assuming that all opposition, even mere disagreement, comes from personal animus.

....The lesson for Tea Partiers is this: Emotions are a very poor guide to political reality. It feels good to blame others for your failure, but continuing to indulge in that kind of self-righteous thinking – a kind of thinking most Tea Partiers have no trouble seeing when it manifests in the Left’s official Victim classes — you assure your future failure because you will not have dispassionately analyzed the faults within yourself that led you to fail. This Limbaugh talk is as poisonous to you as Al Sharpton’s rhetoric is to black people. It’s based in emotion, not reality, and it exploits your (often legitimate) sense of grievance.

I have my own conservative beliefs, and I have my own strongly held views about who in our political life is prejudiced against whom. But you know, I would much rather have politicians represent me who were good at making the things I want to see happen rather than people who say the right things, the kinds of things that get me riled up, but whose passion unrestrained by prudence renders them less effective in the real world.

Who Lost the Shutdown Matters

The willingness of Cruz to cynically call conservatives to arms this fall on behalf of a strategy that never had a prayer of success calls into question his judgment. Republicans cannot run the government with only control of the House of Representatives. The attempt to defund ObamaCare could not succeed and Cruz knew it. The fact that President Obama had been daring, even begging the GOP to try it, should have tipped off the conservative base that not only could it not work, but that it would materially damage their cause. And, to one’s great surprise (including Cruz), that’s exactly what happened.

But in the aftermath of the disaster, Cruz and some of the conservative talking heads on radio and TV who urged Republicans to go down this path are not taking responsibility for their mistake. Instead, they are blaming the surrender on other conservatives, especially Senate Republicans, for not blindly following Cruz. Others even insist that the GOP should have continued to hold out in the hope that the Democrats would crack, even if that meant extending the shutdown and even brushing up against the danger of a default.

To put it mildly, this is bunk.

Yes, there were plenty of Republican senators that warned that the tactic couldn’t work and urged the House GOP caucus not to try it. And they continued to call for compromise and demand that President Obama negotiate with the Republicans to end the standoff. But to assert, as Cruz and some Tea Partiers do, that it was this factor that enabled Obama to prevail is worse than instant revisionist history; it is an exercise in the sort of magical thinking that conservatives have always associated more with utopian liberals and Marxists than their own movement.

Even if no Republican had dared to mention that Emperor Cruz wasn’t wearing any clothes that wouldn’t have made President Obama any more willing to bend to the GOP’s will. He had no reason to do so since the longer the shutdown and the closer to default the nation got, the more blame his opponents would get for the disagreement.

Yes, part of this is a function of the liberal bias of the mainstream media. Life, especially for conservatives in Washington, is unfair. But it is difficult to blame even a biased media for the fact that some conservatives were willing to play Russian roulette with the economy, even if their motivation was a good cause like stopping ObamaCare.

http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2013/10/18/...

if you economy killing conservatives won't listen to other conservatives, who will you listen to? FOX? Limbaugh? those aren't conservatives, those are entertainers. and what have they done for you today? helped you look the fool? and how's that working out for you? what excuse will you use when the GOP loses the House? voter fraud? polls? MSM? get real. if it happens you have no one to blame but yourself.
