Tucker wanted a stiffer penalty for the crime Vick committed and did retract the statement. I hope you understand there is a difference in punishment for committing a crime and wishing pain and harm on someone you seem to detest.
Hey, some might even consider that a threat.
Please do tell us about the many examples or is your drama just for effect?
You can consider it whatever you want. If I wish a painful death for you too would you consider that a threat? Do I care? Not really.

Retracting a statement means absolutely NOTHING. If the didn't mean it, he wouldn't have said it in the first place. Retractions just means they got caught telling the truth.

Oh don't be a moron. I never meant a conservative said the exact same words I said and you know it. They have said SIMILAR things about those THEY disagree with. Tucker Carlson is just one example.
Woof, Sheep, you said, "Conservatives say it ALL the time. Obviously you never watch Fox News". Clearly, you are having difficulty finding examples of Conservatives who have made such comments. Tucker Carlson apologized on air for his comment.

As a Conservative I wish you a long and healthy life. That way you will witness the complete reversal and humiliation of Progressivism, and the return by Americans to Constitutional beliefs and individual responsibility. Who knows, although unlikely, you may even have an awakening.

Like I said, an apology just means he got caught.

As a REAL conservative, I wish you a short but very painful death. I don't want you around to suck up additional natural resources that could be better spent on someone with a brain.

But Tucker Carlson did not wish Vick a long and painful death. Those were your words.

Woof, Sheep, Thanks, you are proving what I could never prove for myself. Progressives believe in political death camps for their adversaries. You have just demonstrated you desire the actual death of a person simply because that person is a Conservative. You believe that unless a person shares your political belief they are not worth keeping alive, and that you and those that believe like you have the right to determine life and death. Sounds alot like a certain German Political Movement of the last century.

Seems to me the corporate oligarchic machine flexed it's muscle.
Rather than political fencing, Americans (conservative and liberal alike) should be focusing on mega banking, insurance and multi-national economic and financial corporations that are buying our democracy.
Boy you hit that one on the noes! Deregulation of wall street was just part of gifts that Bush left us.

My understanding was that he means to focus on reducing the deficit over the next 2 years instead of campainging for reelection. Too bad more congressmen don't do the same. We should pass a law that restricts campainging to 2 months prior to the election like many European countries do.
Kent has been in the senate for what, 25 years? So he plans to spend a few months reducing the deficit after 25 years helping to increase it. Truly a progressive gesture.

Woof, IP, Consider that the rules put in place by Reid, Pelosi, and Obama are just what the Chairman of Goldman Sacks desired. His lobbyists probably wrote the new regs. They keep the big banks in power perpetually. Note that the two big corporate guests at the State Dinner for the Chinese Premier were the Chairmen of Goldman Sacks and General Electric. Obama is their puppet.

Oh those little goody two shoes progressives. The destruction of America is/was a team effort. Progressives had no problem raking in a hefty percentage of income from taxes and fees from Wall Street stock market gains. It was free money. Too bad the accusations towards the "deregulation of wall street" did not knock any sense into "regulating the social welfare system" over the decades by you progressive saviors. Too bad. We would be a much healthier nation today. Now the tax revenues are dropping and the tough decisions will be made one way or the other in many communities. What happens if the checks stop or are reduced to those who never earned much of anything? What happens if the checks stop or are reduced to those who earned pensions? What happens if the checks are stopped or reduced for government workers? The party of "yes" will have some "splaining to do" if any of those questions fails or others suffer economically and/or physically. And it won't be the blame game either.

Your way off tract. The very company's you mentioned got mad at President Obama and supported the t-party during the mid-term election. Also, the weeper of the house was also invited to this party. As were many others. But that being said the regulations that were put on these lobbyists were not strong enough!

So, I take it you are against investing in America but favor investing in the rich and China.

I have no no idea what you are writing. America comes first to me. But with common sense in all ways. Stop with the progressive one side against the other crap. the real working class has lost up to half of their wealth and half of that will not be known until they try to sell their homes and there will be a shock to the system. Millions of homes are being held up from being sold as this will totally collapse the market. The rich do not get multiple opportunities. And China will tell us to go to hell at some point. For southeast Asia will become the spot on Earth. All I know is we are becoming fascist. Our education system borders on idiocy. and we graduate millions of people dealing with law, security or safety of some type. That is not freedom. But yeah, I do not know what you are writing....

Woof, IP, wrong on all counts! GE owns NBC and MSNBC, ehich in turn were single handedly the most anti-T-Party networks during the last election. Goldman Sacks and their employee PAC donated more to Democrat candidates than to Republicans by a wide margin, and certainly did not support the T-Party. Do your own Googling. As for John Boehner, the Speaker of the House being invited to the State Dinner, you are correct, however he TURNED DOWN THE INVITATION!
