It's obvious where she gets her orders from.
How many Topix libs accuse conservatives of watching nothing but FOX, call them racists, say they hate children and the poor...blah, blah, blah. 6 years and counting. Saul would be proud.
Nay, neither her or Patrick has the skills to apply principles of any sort. They copy what they read elsewhere.

If I was alive when Wilson was POTUS, I wouldn't have voted for him. However, you are right him and Teddy were the start of the Progressive movement.

What you neglect to understand - or fail to grasp - or can't get your head around - is many Democrats up for reelection now wish to gracious Obamacare had been repealed.
The GOP would have done them and all of us a favor. Obamacare is already a huge chaotic mess and it's only just begun.
You act like they wanted to repeal something that's actually going to work. Obamacare was a failure right out of the starting gate.
Wait until a huge number of Americans find out in a few more months they no longer have employer-based insurance and will have to pay thousands up front just to see a physician.
You will regret having been so blind.
You are deflecting. Your claim was that if Obama had not "wasted time" on the Affordable Care Act, he could have spent more time dealing with other important issue. Fact is, Obama only spent about one year getting the Affordable Care Act passed while it is the Republicans in Congress that have been wasting time fighting it. You can't sweep that FACT under the rug.

Republicans opposed Medicare and Social Security.

Anne Rand herself received Social Security payments and Medicare benefits under the name of Ann O'Connor .

And taking advantage of Obama's naivety.
Nancy Pelosi wants you to believe conservatives don't care about children. Don't be another liberal stooge.
No one is going to take away food stamps for those its meant to help. Fixing a broken system is just common sense. Pelosi has none. Do you??
"No one is going to take away food stamps for those its meant to help."
Rather broad generalization
You want to end Medicare?

Would love to see you and Lily witness an actual abortion. Better yet, for both of you to turn on that industrial strength vacuum and suck a human being into it.
My hope is your and Lily's sanctimonious ignorance would go right out the window.
My fear, however, is that you both would do it and give each other a high five afterwards.
Could you suck a human being with a heartbeat and functioning organs and a central nervous system into an industrial strength vacuum? And still be able to sleep at night?
How many unwanted children have you adopted? I would suggest you should watch the autopsy of an unwanted baby who has been tortured and beaten. My hope is "you and your sactimonious ignorance will go right out the window." Better to die as an unthinking, unfeeling polywog than as a an abused, starved child.

<quoted text>ectly why Israel is retaliating against the stick pokers...and they do have a bombs... you should be glad they haven't used them yet...
so what were those tunnels into israel for? to place mints onthe jews pillows in the evening or to kill them?
how long would you allow your enemy to do such things before you retaliated? you are lucky they haven't lined up teh dozers and flattened Gaza and all within it and turned it into a real state where goods and services can be produced that add to teh planet...
Israeli's oppressive polices are the enemy. To bad you can't accept that FACT. The rethug rhetoric of demanding to see the Palesinians pushed into the see or bulldozed into oblivian will be the death of israel.

Annie Rand the same, one and only nut case

Her books provided wide-ranging parables of "parasites," "looters" and "moochers" using the levers of government to steal the fruits of her heroes' labor. In the real world, however, Rand herself received Social Security payments and Medicare benefits under the name of Ann O'Connor .

A senior Israeli official says the Israeli government has accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal to end a monthlong war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
The official says a preliminary 72-hour truce will begin at 0500 GMT on Tuesday morning. An Israeli delegation will head to Egypt for talks meant to work out a long-term truce in the next three days

It is interesting that they will agree to a cease fire as long as Kerry and Obama are not involved. It tells us a lot about Kerry and Obama and how they are thought of in the middle east..

You're confused by the progressive liberal mentality. Two wrongs don't make a right. Sucking a human life into a vacuum doesn't excuse abusing an unwanted child.

Try to stay focused. Snap out of it.
