Luckily some Republicans are standing up to the idiocy being displayed by a few within their own party. Such as the comments by North Carolina Senator Richard Burr, who said it was the “dumbest idea he’s ever heard of” when told about some conservatives pushing for a government shutdown.

But what this irrational behavior by Republicans towards “Obamacare” really stems from is their absolute fear that the law might actually—work.
Much like a child throwing a tempter tantrum, the child’s actions usually don’t start out with them rolling around on the ground, kicking and screaming incoherently. No, they often begin more mildly and work their way up to the full-blown tantrum.

As the child begins to realize that their battle with the adult isn’t going the way they want it to, they then become more desperate, and that’s when you see the rolling around on the ground, kicking and screaming.

Which is the point Republicans are approaching. State exchanges are beginning to rollout, with rates lower than expected. Then with near full-on implementation of the law expected next year, Republicans are throwing themselves on the ground, kicking and screaming, doing anything they can to prevent the law from working.

“Since our 40 attempts to repeal a law didn’t work, and our fear mongering hasn’t stopped it from being implemented, we’ll just shutdown the government until you defund the law!”

It’s their last ditch effort to try and get their way. Because the last thing Republicans want is for the law to be implemented, work, and then they’re left trying to explain to their constituents why they so fiercely opposed the law when it’s benefiting millions of Americans and doing what President Obama said it would do.

And even though Obama easily won re-election and Democrats gained seats in the House and the Senate—Republicans still seem to feel that they have some “mandate” given to them in this country to act like petulant children who aren’t getting their way.

Which is exactly what it seems they plan on doing.
But at the end of the day, more Republicans need to listen to Senators from their own party like Richard Burr who said it best.

“I think it’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of. Listen, as long as Barack Obama is president, the Affordable Care Act is going to be law. I think some of these guys need to understand that if you shut down the federal government, you better have a specific reason to do it that’s achievable.

Defunding the Affordable Care Act is not achievable through shutting down the federal government. At some point you’re going to open the federal government back up, and Barack Obama’s going to be president, and he won’t have signed this illusion of the Affordable Care Act.”

In other words,“Obamacare” is the law of the land—get over it.

HAHA, shut down the government. Typical repuke tactic. They do and they will pay dearly. They would bite their nose off to spite their ugly faces. And continue to lose elections.

How's that "re-inventing" themselves working? haha

Robinson statue defaced in Brooklyn

In today’s reminder that the world is full of terrible people, police in New York are on the hunt for a vile vandal who scribbled derogatory messages and Nazi imagery on a statue of Jackie Robinson outside the Brooklyn Cyclones’ ballpark.

According to the New York Daily News, an employee at MCU Park in Coney Island arrived at the stadium at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday to find that a statue of Robinson and his longtime Brooklyn Dodgers teammate Pee Wee Reese, both baseball Hall of Famers, had been defaced.

The Class A Cyclones are members of the New York–Penn League, affiliated with the New York Mets.

According to the Daily News report, the messages included hateful notes that read, "Heil Hitler," "Die n----r," "F--k n----r" and "F--k Jackie Robinson,” and were written sometime after the Cyclones’ home game Tuesday night. The act is being investigated as a hate crime.

"The statue is a symbol of tolerance," Cyclones Director of Communications Billy Harner told the paper. "It's an absolute tragedy that someone would deface it the way they did."

Workers were able to scrub the graffiti from the bronze portion of the statue, but as of Wednesday afternoon, the graffiti on the stone base had yet to be removed:

On April 15, 1947, Robinson became the first African-American player in Major League Baseball, and he and Reese were teammates in Brooklyn from 1947 to 1956. The statue outside the stadium was erected in 2005.

Wednesday, New York City councilwoman and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn tweeted a message on behalf of herself and councilman Domenic Recchia saying that the two "strongly condemn the racist graffiti discovered on Jackie Robinson's statue in BK. Hatred has no place here."

In order to respond, I had to remove a large portion of your post.
I don't need the condescending attitude. I have a degree in business so I am very aware of what "condone" means. I generally am not on this thread often and just peruse the last few pages. From what I have seen, your comments are much more malicious than most. I do NOT "condone" ANYONE making vile and malicious comments.
"YOUR kind"???? That is certainly a very bigoted remark. Are you referring to conservatives? Are you referring to those who do not believe this President has or is doing ANYTHING to improve this country? So let me get this straight. It is ok for you to have strong opinions, make malicious comments, and call others names who disagree you, but someone who just voices her opinions without name calling or any malicious intent is a "YOUR kind"?
Bush owns these scandals????? It is time for Obama to own the scandals which have occurred during his presidency. These are all his.
I "hate to break it to you" also but when 44% approve of the President, 48% disapprove, and evidently 8% had no opinion either way, 48% IS THE MAJORITY!
We are over 4 1/2 years into Obama's presidency and all liberals want to do is continue to blame Bush.
==========
George W. Bush's 2001-2009 Term Average - 49%

April 23, 2013
Forty-seven percent of Americans say they now approve of the former president, while 53 percent disapprove, according to the poll, which surveyed 1,000 adults from April 17-21. Mr. Obama's approval rating also stands at 47 percent.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57580906/...
==========
You have every right to believe what you wish, as I do. You are also certainly free to use any name calling you wish but I certainly would not refer to them as "harmless school yard" words. You evidently went to a different "school yard" than I did or you were considered the "school yard bully". Most people find those words to be not only harmful and malicious, but also needless when attempting to converse with anyone. We aren't in a "school yard". We are adults discussing and debating opinions and views.
I will also continue to provide my opinions and views in a civil manner with no name calling involved as that is the mature, adult thing to do. I may also respond to some of your posts if I believe it is warranted. Since you have obviously chosen to nickname me "bee goo", I hope you won't find it offensive if I sometimes refer to you as "sweetheart", sweetheart. It is actually a very "harmless" word.
blah,blah,blah,SOS just a different day. DON'T REPOND, how about that. Believe what you want. Were you one of the 100+ they polled. I guess you are the majority of that. Feel proud. Good. I will stay with the MAJORITY that wins elections. Bush left office with the lowest approval rate of any of the PRESIDENTS. 22%

Obama's will be higher. Watch and see. And we will have our first WOMAN PRESIDENT. Suck it up bee goo.

Font, Olf, all the regulars... one question
Do you all think you are making a difference? Do you feel like you've made a difference in the lives of others?
Is that why your presence here is constant. I know I read this a lot (mostly, OLF, Miss Font, Pam, ect) the stalking, the skipping around on other county forums... Its... I don't know. Baffling to me that some people can be SO interested in.. I don't know. Internet fighting? stalking? Talking? chatting? I read this at work, but if I am home, or on my own hours, I don't even think about it. But for some reason, when I come here to read, I always wonder why you guys are here SO MUCH. I mean, Miss Font, you post A LOT. Topix takes up A LOT of your time. Does it not? I mean, really. Look at how much you post. Look at how many hours of your time you've spent on here, fussing, or talking, or whatever. Its saddening. You've spent a pretty good chunk of your time on Topix.
You are wasting your life. I hope you can give topix a rest, and actually go live. When you aren't posting here, you are posting in other forums on topix. I just don't get it .I don't get why you all can't go out and live you life.
Miss Font is the worst for it. The volume of her posts is staggering. It is just.. so weird to me.
I wonder what Miss Font looks like, or is like in person. She must have a hard time socially with people. Its just my opinion, and theory. I mean.. when you spend SO much of your time on the computer your social skills pay for it.
I am sorry Miss E Font. That you have to spend a lot of your time and energy on Topix. When I say "have to". I know that you'd truly would have a hard time not using topix.
All fussing, jokes and hatefulness aside.
I hope you can step away from topix for a time. Not for anyone but yourself. Go out to a bookstore, or coffee shop. Engage conversation with people.
This post wasn't addressed to me, but I wanted the author to know the impact of his/her eloquent words.

You're so right, and I'm so guilty of doing almost the exact same thing. I spend way too much time here, and for what? I haven't convinced anyone to see things differently as far as I know. There are some intense, deeply rooted opinions on this thread, and they are likely to remain so. I said the other day that reasoning with some of these folks was like gift-wrapping Jello, so...what's the point? In the end it's just a soggy, sticky (albeit often colorful) mess.

What struck me most about your post was the part about all the fussing and insulting. It's fun sometimes, to be sure, but again, what does it accomplish? Last night, three of us like-minded were laughing and discussing politics in a very laid-back way, and another person showed up. It may very well be the one you addressed this post to, I don't know. But this person...this person was obviously lonesome and wanted to join in the laughter but just didn't know how to do it without hurling insults. So of course we three hurled them right back.

It reminded me of an episode of Andy Griffith (sorry, but the older I get,*everything* reminds me of an episode of Andy Griffith...heh). The old hateful store owner was looking in the window of the jail, where the others were celebrating Christmas. He didn't know how to join in; he'd tried petty crime, insults, everything he could think of. Then Andy realized what was going on and invited the old man in. Sorry...long and rambling, I know, but here's the payoff - I had the chance to do the same thing last night and I blew it. True, this is not a sitcom, and being hateful can't be cured by a plate of Aunt Bea's fried chicken, but I should have at least tried.

So to the one looking in the window last night...I'm sorry. To you, Bushwacker (awesome name, btw!) thank you for showing me my reflection in a two way mirror.

With *all* that said; this zen is temporary, and may not keep me from trading heinous insults with anyone who insults me first. Heh.
