Laziness, pure laziness. Politics didn't interest us so we just voted for who we thought was the "coolest" candidate. Those who wanted to destroy America just became "cool" realizing, if they became "cool", they could lie about their agenda because we didn't care enough to listen to what they were saying.
And you have the answers?..and why is your Party so divided.

You live in some bizorro world, along with others here and across America, that only focuses on the utter base of societies shortcomings and how you see that as fundamentally what ails America...all the.while conveniently ignoring the destruction of our Middle class..

I think, in reality, that is the defining difference between many everyday conservatives and liberals.

It would behoove us all to focus less on our current political divisions and seek common ground, but that won't happen, we have become sheep.

You can't make this up folks. This guy has to correct or clarify everything that he puts down in words. I think the problem is he gets ahead of his puppet masters and stumbles about in the liberal way until they can put him back on track.

I would dare say that the Narcissistic over- tone contained in your opening statement

"speaks volumes" of a personality disorder of the author.

LMAO! Right on cue, pull his strings, yank his chain and you can make him dance like a little puppet master. His nose even grows after he posts his lies. He is a made up comic book character without any character. Just a lonely old twit wasting away in Salem, Arkansas with an old dog and a mean disposition because he never made anything out of his life. He blames everybody but himself for his miserable existence. So sad..........

An individual diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder needs to show at least 5 of the following criteria:

Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).

Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

Believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).

Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.

Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.

Independent conservatives are a party and they are divided? I wasn't aware of that. You have to recognize the problem to address it. The liberal way of simply throwing money at the problem while refusing to get their hands dirty has predictably made the problem worse. All the problems.

Here is a towel, dry behind your years, this is hardly anything new.
By Charlie Savage
Globe Staff / January 30, 2008
WASHINGTON - President Bush this week declared that he has the power to bypass four laws, including a prohibition against using federal funds to establish permanent US military bases in Iraq, that Congress passed as part of a new defense bill.
Bush made the assertion in a signing statement that he issued late Monday after signing the National Defense Authorization Act for 2008. In the signing statement, Bush asserted that four sections of the bill unconstitutionally infringe on his powers, and so the executive branch is not bound to obey them.
Bush's frequent use of signing statements to advance aggressive theories of executive power has been a hallmark of his presidency. Previous presidents occasionally used the device, but Bush has challenged more sections of bills than all his predecessors combined - among them, a ban on torture.

It appears as though the courts agree that Obama acted unconstitutionally in his recess appointments.

http://www.myheritage.org/news/court-agrees-w...

Or these. Specifically #4 and #13 because judges rulings are involved. Even the most marginally informed citizen would agree with #6.

Do you have proof of the unconstitutionality of Bush's actions? I mean from a court and not the Boston Globe.

It was not the "courts", it was the court of appeals decision for the D.C. Circuit.

A three judge panel consisting of ,

Chief Judge David B. Sentelle -- Reagan appointee
Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson -- Bush 1 appointee
Judge Thomas B. Griffith -- GW Bush appointee

There have been more than 280 intra-session recess appointments dating back to 1867.

The Appeals Court decision is unprecedented, and contradicts 150 years of practice by Democratic and Republican administration alike.

The last I had heard the Appeals Court decision was on appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I would like to take this time to thank Obama for making me a boat load of money in 2013. The Stock Market soared under his watch and the 1% not only got richer but people like me who are heavily invested in stocks got richer also. I hope 2014 is at least half as good as 2013. Thank you Obama.

Spin it how you wish but there are two legal decisions by actual judges that Obama acted unconstitutionally and a Boston Globe opinion that Bush acted unconstitutionally. Now all of a sudden you are running down the LEGAL appointments of judges in light of the UNCONSTITUTIONAL recess appointments by Obama. If what Bush did was so bad, surly there is a decision of some sort by some judge somewhere that you can reference. Until then, what you are showing is pure hypocrisy and a losers limp. Very unbecoming.

Face it Andy, if proper grammar and lack of typos is what you are seeking, then a Topix thread is not likely where you want to be.

However if you are a conservative/republican who can not stand the truth, lacking any thing positive to defend your own party, so you shoot the messenger,

congratulations, you are right at home!

No spin, just the facts of what happen.

Tell me, if Obama's appointments were unconstitutional

( as written by three Republican Political activist judges attempting to legislate from the bench),

why did it take the court 150 years of by Democratic and Republican administration making recess appointments for them to figure this was unconstitutional?

I still haven't been able to sign up for Obama Care yet. I get nothing but the run around. I am trying t convince all of my family to get on every piece of government assistance known to man that is possible. The way I look at it is I have been paying for all of these benefits I have never used so i's about time I get my monies worth. If you can't beat the welfare queens, join them.

You must be new to this thread. The poster in question very seldom gets a post correct on anything. He always has to repost his meaning, clarify the content of his meaning or respell many words. His alligator mouth always overloads his hummingbird brain. The guy always out runs his msnbc supply lines and always gets caught waiting on their next talking point while being decimated with Conservative facts. He is the best free entertainment you will find anywhere.

Good for you, now you can breathe a sigh of relief that he hasn't succeeded at being a socialist.
