A little levity helps me tolerate the constant negative news . I am really ok with the few republicans who are honest . Its the same for the few remaining honest democrats. My hostility is directed at the dishonest republikans because I see little push back against their blatant government for sale and constant impediments to a functioning governance. As I have stated before, my attacks on the corruption of republikans does not constitute an endorsement of democrat corruption. I know that is hard for partisans to understand. I really see no hope for either party. I pray for the emergence of a new political party with the intelligence and will to deal with our considerable problems.

No "dishonest" Democrats to share your ire? How convenient. You would carry more weight if you said Edwards was just a crappy Democrat. NOOO, you have to try an say he's a "closet Republican". Both sides are guilty and you know it.

You have no way of knowing if your statement is true or not. As I mentioned earlier, a non profit organization of which I am an officer, had our tax exempt status cancelled by the IRS for seemingly frivolous reasons. We definitely are not a conservative organization. Only after submitting 42 pages of information was the tax exempt status restored. It was burdensome and irritating but I did not suspect a conservative conspiracy . Non profit corporations are where much mischief and fraud is hidden. The IRS is charged with the duty of finding that. That is their job.
The conspiracy screaming ninnies need to get a grip.

I think Edwards is just a crappy person, period. But like Mark Sanford and Jim Baker, he has expressed remorse. That makes it ok. Ha, just joking. Anyway, he is human, and I would hate to be publically pilloried for mistakes that I have made I thought I said I did not endorse dishonest democrats.

Yes most politicians are corrupt. That is why our government has become dysfunctional. That is why our finances are a wreck. We and the politicians pretend that they will serve , but we all know they will only feather their own nests.
I am registered unaffiliated because I have basic philosophical differences with both parties. I find it impossible to justify labeling myself with the limited stereotypes of "democrat" , "republican" , conservative or liberal. The neocons (republikans) think I am a liberal because I disagree with them on certain points and will not ignore corruption. The la de da s (democrats) think I am a gun toting tea party because I cannot buy into unrealistic perspectives like gun control, abortion etc. Both sides claim that if you are not with us, you are against us. I am for the USA. To hell with parties.

v Organizations that the administration disapproved of were denied and held up. Trust me on this, would be all over the news if lefty orgs had been denied and held up like conservative ones were. I say again, the number of conservative groups that were subjected to this far exceeded the number of left wing groups. Looks like conspiracy to me, and like I said, I voted for the guy.

TSF the best thing we as Americans can do is to hold both parties responsible for their actions, EVEN IF WE ARE MEMBERS OF THAT PARTY!! The way things are going now, with the extreme factionalism currently in vogue, a President guilty of the crimes that Nixon engaged in, simply would not be subjected to impeachment. Party first, country last.

Our government is dysfunctional and our finances are a wreck because the people have discovered that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. Finally, the money runs out and we begin printing it. Our problems are just beginning.

You are right. The money printing devalues the dollar every day. Money that I worked for years ago , paid taxes on and saved isn't worth even 10% of what it was when I banked it. I fear it will come to a value situation described to me by an older German who said that after WWII, burning the Reich marks would produce more heat than the firewood they would buy.

He is FOS. The prisons are full of young black men because of democrats? BS. Could it possibly be because they committed crimes? Republikans will try anything.

You can't have two standards for achievement. You can't say that a white person has to score a 90 on a test, and then say a black person only has to score 75 to equal that score of 90. Are not black people just as smart??

Why are so many blacks in the pen?? Their culture celebrates athletes, entertainers, and gangsters as people to emulate. Most people don't have the talent to be entertainers or sports stars. But, everybody has enough talent to be a gangster. White kids who think they are black gangsters are especially pathetic.

The grade inflation for blacks done by some school administrators is detrimental for blacks. Lowering standards for blacks is detrimental to blacks. What that says is that they cannot achieve on their own without help. That is a lie It harms the subject individual by not demanding performance and by often making the individual himself believe that they cannot achieve without help.

That's your best post. Succinct, well put. I agree.

Several months ago there was an argument on this forum. Regarding gay marriage. Looks like the Supreme Court has settled the argument, no matter which way people may have felt.
