Oh, gee...Reality raises it's ugly head.

While the Tea Party rushes to the aid of a land grabbing rancher refusing to pay "an onerous fee for grazing his cattle on public land" they failed to recognize that the fee was imposed not by Congress but by their beloved Ronald Reagan by Executive Order 12458, signed in 1986 which followed the guidelines set out in President Ford's "Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976."

Executive Order 12548 - Grazing Fees
February 14, 1986

Public Papers of the Presidents
Ronald Reagan 1986: Book I

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, and in order to provide for establishment of appropriate fees for the grazing of domestic livestock on public rangelands, it is ordered as follows:

Section 1. Determination of Fees. The Secretaries of Agriculture and the Interior are directed to exercise their authority, to the extent permitted by law under the various statutes they administer, to establish fees for domestic livestock grazing on the public rangelands which annually equals the $1.23 base established by the 1966 Western Livestock Grazing Survey multiplied by the result of the Forage Value Index (computed annually from data supplied by the Statistical Reporting Service) added to the Combined Index (Beef Cattle Price Index minus the Prices Paid Index) and divided by 100; provided, that the annual increase or decrease in such fee for any given year shall be limited to not more than plus or minus 25 percent of the previous year's fee, and provided further, that the fee shall not be less than $1.35 per animal unit month."

There have been 2 sides to every military involvement we've had, including the big ones, Iraq and Afghanistan are no different. The case is easily made FDR goaded the Japs into attacking us, costing us 500K dead. Yet FDR is seen as some kind of hero[who didn't serve]. Lincoln and Wilson cost us many dead as well.
Funny. The Germans attacked our military ships and sank one in the Atlantic and FDR did nothing. And we even fired back without declaring war.

Isn't history amazing when you know something son? Unlike you?

LBJ did what any president would have done with the Civil Rights Act. However, it WAS LBJ who asked a Republican Senator, Everett Dirksen, to work tirelessly behind the scenes to get enough Democrats on board to pass it. So in that way, LBJ did a good thing and Everett was successful. But, in the end, it was Republicans who had the majority to pass it.
Carol still trying to make the racism a party thing when it was a regional thing. When will you ever learn?

The majority of Republicans and he majority of Democrats voted for it.

Barry Goldwater strongly supported civil rights. But he strongly supported states' rights as well.
So one man is blamed for racism in the Republican Party for his views on states' rights when the entire Southern bloc were predominantly Democrats, racists and supported the KKK?
If every state had voted for civil rights within their own state, can you even entertain the idea we might not have such a racial divide today?
Because the Southern states would have been the only ones to vote against it. But the black "migration" to the north and west occurred anyway and racism in the south would have died on the vine. All other states would have integrated these blacks with open arms and the "victim" mentality that grew out of disillusionment and mistrust across the nation might not even exist.
Far-reaching laws passed by the federal government create more problems than they solve.
Carol now arguing that the right way to go was to allow & condone the South to remain racist.

Of course she is.
People have to understand what these clowns mean when they say "rights" and "freedom"
They dont define them the way most Americans do.
They meant the 'Right' to persecute and discriminate.
The Right to curtail OTHER'S Rights.
The 'Freedom' to indulge their agendas at the expense of others without ANY repercussions
or responsibilty for the damage they cause or any obligation to those they exploit to further those agendas.
Any Righty who tries to claim different is either Stupid or a F*cking Liar.

oh my G-d are you the ignorant one. The entire world knows (except you) that Harry balls Reid is behind this crap with the same son Rory-isn't Rory the one that fixed the election machines in Nevada so a person could only vote for Harry. This has nothing to do with Reagan-it has to do with a deal with China for get this: solar panels. And all those dead turtles they used for an excuse, is just that an excuse for Reid and his son to make millions. Harry Reid needs to step down, if the papers weren't screen shot before they were dumped no one would have known about Dirty Harry. Americans aren't going to take it anymore. The federal government backed down and ended their siege against Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy less than 24 hours after an Infowars exposι connecting the land grab to Harry Reid and a Chinese-backed solar farm went viral, becoming the biggest news story on the Internet-and you are blaming Reagan. LOL-got any more stupidity.

It is a bit worrisome at times. Never before has a president demonized the opposition with such contempt and divisiveness and created such a divide between Americans on almost every front. Obama and those in power presently consider those who hold different values and solutions as the "enemy". It's unprecedented...and a bit worrisome.
Carol & Mighty Dumb Builder never heard of Karl Rove who took a disabled vet & trashed his service to this country so a Republican could win a seat in the House. Rove was the epitome of Alinsky & you f*cking morons loved him to dearth.
The divide in this country is 100% created by the right. When Republicans met in December of 2008 to oppose every effort by Obama, they created the split.
Look at the ACA filled with previously Republicans ideas. Look at climate change - previously a bi-partisan issue. Look at Education - a previous bi partisan issue. Look at the stimulus bill.
You right whiners are so easily duped from your constant influx of misinformation from Fox., Limbaugh Beck, etc as it makes you dumber than sh*t.
You people now stand for racism, rich people, corporate welfare, pollution, dirty water, war and against poor people, old people, education, a cleaner planet, healthcare for all, power through sanctions, and the right to vote.
Do you ever step back & look in the mirror & see just how convoluted you idiots have become? You now back a man who has been stealing Government services for years by not paying gazing fees yet you would crucify a poor mother for getting $10 more in food stamps than she should.
You back a party that protects 40 billion in oil subsidies while wanting to shut down government unless they can take 80 billion away from hungry children.
And then you ruin in circles, flailing your arms & blaming Democrats for the God awful mess that Bush & nearly 12 consecutive years of Republican Congresses left behind.
You cry about deficits yet it was Bush that took us from a balanced Budget & left us in economic disaster.
You run a man for VP in 2012 that was in Congress voting yes yes yes to the policies that created that recession.
Look at your top contenders? Rand Paul - You GD idiots have called Obama inexperienced when he had experience in State Government before becoming a US Senatpr & now you want a man with drastically less experience who was a fraud in private practice?
You ran in circles about Obama not being born in the US with communist ties in Kenya with some devious name change to Barry and & then support Ted Cruz who was born in Canada held Canadian citizenship until last year, whose father fought for Castro & Ted ain't is real name. And who just cost our economy 24 billion dollars for a publicity stunt.
Do you people see just how ridiculous you have become?

But Obama's progressive liberal and the mainstream liberal media's ideology is killing us and traditional American values. It's a slow certain death. Unless the majority loosens their progressive liberal noose from around our necks, it's all over but the cryin'.
Liberal Media is into Social Engineering to unprecedented levels. The expression "Liberal Media" encompasses ALL forms of media from Hollyweird to Madison Ave to the Recording Industry to PSAs.

For example, 85% of all black households are missing a real man. Black society is fundamentally a Maternal one. Data backs this up. That's why "Yo Momma" put-downs are so hurtful.

And yet, PSAs, sit-coms and simple Macaroni-n-Cheese TV ads are saturated with family life scenarios depicting a loving black man sitting at the family table, playing ball with is son or dancing with his daughter.

A severe disjoint here, folks, but it plays well in Liberal-Land.

All the study data that I've ever seen shows gay human populations to be between 2 and 10% but peruse the TV channels with pen and paper during some 24 hour period and count how many media presentations of gay environment ingrained into the script-writer's imaginary world and you might come away with the belief that human populations are 90% gay and getting higher.

A severe disjoint here, too, folks, but it plays well in Liberal-Land and is a great tool for Social Engineering.

America's prison populations are teeming disproportionately with black male criminals and yet every TV Cops-n-Robbers show has a black in Supervisory positions. And Hollyweird ALWAYS depicts any black character to be suffering either white cruelty beatings or subtle white hatred or reminds the viewer again for the 10,000th time how poorly slaves were treated in the South 200 years ago. It is standard fare inside of Writer's School.

Script-writers are Social Engineers.

When was the last time you viewed a TV commercial where a male fills the part of the "intelligent" player telling the "ignorant" female about how the smart consumer uses ABC Toilet Paper?

You don't. In Madison Ave. culture today, the Social Engineers have deemed it proper that men are stupid and women are Black Leather Ninjas with IQs of over 200.

Madison Ave is Social Engineering.

Critical Thinking is the inimical sound that no Progressive ever wants to hear.

You really need to stop being a willing participant in liberal brainwashing by reading these sites. I'm starting to feel sorry for you - like victims who unwittingly get caught in a trap and are snared by the villains who pretend to be something they aren't. They garner sympathy from outside observers who usually know the outcome. These otherwise innocent but gullible victims never figure it out until it's too late.
But you root for the ones who do. And I'm rooting for you.
The only one who's gullible here is you Carol. Media Matters uses actual facts to expose the lies told on your precious Fox and you don't like that so you label it as "liberal". You're so far to the right just about anything else is "liberal". You're intellectually lazy and just want you prejudices to be validated and the facts be damned and Fox is only too willing to do just that.
No, I'm afraid that you're the one who's been brainwashed by those that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy.
