Yeah, about that, it wasn't just one person and that particular party is not the same as the modern day incarnation. I'd rather Nixon than what we have now.
No.
I remember him as much for imposing wage and price controls as for underhanded tactics

Damn those facts... getting in the way of liberal reality...
Which party's House member's legislated to stall our economic recovery? Which party cannot transend, the last two elections? Which party put's their partisan, political agenda ahead of the good of the country?

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed by a Congress that had a majority of Democrats in both houses, and with a Democrat president.

And the Democrats from the South then became Republicans out of disgust.

NO doubt. Of COURSE he doesn't get that the parties have evolved. THe REpublican party of Lincoln's day is vastly different than the Republican party we have today.

Cool. And that is why I use a paper towel to open up the bathroom door before coming out and going back to work.

Happy Friday!

A week from today, I'll be heading to Chicago. Looks like I can pretty easily get from O'Hare to downtown via the CTA blue line... true? Any idea how long that trip will take?

I haven't done it years, but I'm guessing it will take about half an hour, maybe a little more if it's rush hour.

Thanks!

Looks like my best bet for the weekend overall is the 3-day transit pass so I don't have to worry about it. Just to make sure I'm not having a blonde moment, it says it's calculated in 24-hour periods so if I buy one on Friday afternoon, I'll be good through Monday morning when I leave, right?

Ahem...

Yesterday's Democrats: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Today's Democrats: "My country owes me free birth control, my country owes me free healthcare, my country owes me free food, free housing, free education...."
