House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced who will chair all of the major House committees in the next Congress. And it turns out they all have something in common besides party affiliation: they're all white men.

There isn't a single woman or minority included in the mix of 19 House committee chairs announced Tuesday -- a stark reality for a party desperate to appeal to women and minorities after both groups overwhelmingly rejected Republicans just weeks ago in the presidential election

All White - All Men - All Extremely Rich!

And we expect these RICH OLD WHITE MEN to have compassion for women, working people, small business, mid-class, vets, seniors, disabled, the poor, minorities, etc?

GET REAL!!

Boo Hoo, Who cares? Most of the politicians of all colors and all races are a bunch of crooks anyway. Your so busy worrying about their color and their gender that you don't pay any attention to what they are doing with your freedom or your tax money. You only worry about one thing. Race. People such as yourself are easy to manipulate and the politicians know it.

I remember in sixth grade when my friends and I would pass notes. After the first note was passed, the rest would start with: said the.....

That was in sixth grade. Get the message?

What's the matter? Did I insult a couple of YOUR other identities when I called them(you) whiners???

How many of the 19 should be "women or minirities", and based on what?

I happened to be "checking in" last night when the first two posts of this thread hit. They were 2 minutes apart. You can do that in an existing thread, but how does it happen in a new thread?

I'm not sure how you do that unless you're the SAME person...Hmmm...

Hence, avoid the unregistered posters...

The knitting circle is theorizing again. Watch Out!

Logic is about to take a beating like a Republican on election night.

"women, working people, small business, mid-class, vets, seniors, disabled, the poor, minorities, etc?"

All of your daily personalities?

I was 100% against abortion until I started reading your crap on Topix. I am now only 99.9% against it. Thanks for changing my opinion on the value of a human life.

One would think that the GOP would look at the facts and start planning for a future comeback. Oh no, they just double down. In the election they lost the female vote, the Asian vote, the Hispanic vote, the youth vote, the native American vote. But just to prove that it really doesn't bother them, they double down and can only find old white males that can fill their positions. Those guys are dying off.

Why do you care? This country is heading in the right direction as far as those of you who reelected Obama are concerned. Your party has all those votes so that should make you happy. If the dems win big in the next primary, you'll have it made. Your future will be all bright and shiny. Rejoice. Obama won't have to worry about getting reelected, so he can really break loose. He'll take great care of you. So, why do you care?

BTW, the good news is that Obama and future democrat administrations will continue to fill open positions with blacks and other minorities and then finally you'll be obsolete. Your own party won't need you if you are white. The minorities will collectively push you out. Wait and see. You'll be expendable.

Talk about immature...lol. You answer every criticism of your gay old party with "what do you care?" blah blah blah. Always the same crap over and over again. Well, why do you (and your other identities)care? Apparently you care enough to spend every waking moment cutting and pasting anti-Obama propaganda from Faux news or regurgitating drivel from Kneel Boortz. But please, proceed. At the end of the day, you and your fellow republiKKKan dinosaurs are still losers.

1. I haven't cut and pasted ANYTHING.
2. I simply refute your myriad of insults.
3. Speaking of myriad, that describes your ID's in order to "look" supported.
4. You regurgitate drivel from Chris Matthews.(There you go again.....)
Again....WHY do you even spend your time CARING what I do???? How does what I do with MY time affect YOUR LIFE?????

*The report given for new housing starts in September was wrong. The actual number was not UP as was reported.(Funny how for the past four years the numbers turn out not to be as good as previously reported.) Now in October, the number is down. You'll be okay, though.:)
