The fallacy of polls.

Washington Post/ABC Poll. May 2013.

"Comprehensive immigration reform moves to the Senate floor next week with solid overall support from the public."


"The Washington Post is confounded by its own poll. Only 18 percent of Americans support the Gang of Eight's legalization-first approach to illegal immigration, according to the same Washington Post/ABC News poll."

Tweak, tweak, tweak.

Try to fix a bad commode with the wrong tools, and the commode will still be full of crap.

"Collins, of Maine, and Indiana's Donnelly wrote that they introduced the "Forty Hours is Full Time Act of 2013" to resolve this problem with the healthcare law. The senators' bill, introduced Wednesday, defines a full-time employee as working an average of 40 hours a week or 174 hours a month for full-time equivalents."

You're the who brought up the Myth of the Southern Strategy, I merely showed how others have debunked it. But it served the purpose of making you backtrack into common sense, so I'd call that a positive.
Nope, not bracktracking at all.

Here's the post you were responding to,
and the contention I was responding to in that post.

As you can plainly see I was responding to a mischaracterization by another contributor by providing a reference to what the Sountern Strategy was, and a reference the event attributed to Reagan's use of it.

In that post I never argued that racial motivation was the SOLE reason for the rise of Republican support in the south, but it is certianly ONE of the reasons. Other reasons being those that I mentioned. The south was changing, the country was changing, and the party that offered a perception of stability would have been attractive for a number of reasons to a number of economic brackets.

I will be happy to get into this further if needed tonight, but no time now. But I'll leave you with this, you stated:
"All health care facilities, including abortion providers, are required to comply with a variety of federal and state regulations."
One name: Kermit Gosnell
"The Back Alley: How the politics of abortion protects bad clinics"
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...
Thank you for proving the very point that current regulations are effective. If this were not the case you would be providing enough examples to change this:

Abortion is one of the safest and most commonly provided medical procedures in the United States. Fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication requiring hospitalization.

But hey, knock yourself out.

I agree with Agg's political stance on being conservative first and Republican second and voting for the lesser of two evils. I am not pro-abortion, but I am pro-choice.( I know that's not being conservative.) If a woman wants that on her conscience, that's on her. I am against partial birth abortion. I used to be against abortion, but I realized there will always be idiots using idiotic ways to abort themselves so I reconsidered. I see how some children are neglected because perhaps they weren't wanted and that's disturbing. Honestly, I'm torn about that issue. I reserve the right to revert back to my original way of thinking at any given time. I DO think the abortion issue is one of the reasons Republicans are losing elections.

Send the children back with the parents. I haven't gone back and caught up, so this may have already been discussed, but I don't think the children born in the U.S. of illegal parents should automatically be citizens. That is ridiculous, imo.

"A city official notably said the federal government should bail out Detroit."
A dead city brought about by incompetent politicians elected by ignorant voters. This is the future of all of America.
His proclamation was made when he was heading toward reelection. He needed the votes. As he has shown, when he doesn't need someone or something any more, all bets are off. He's evil.

I am a hard ass, so I say send them all back. If you are a bleeding heart then just send the parents back, but only if Mexico pays the school system for the kids education. If they don't then send them all back. We did pay to educate these kids didn't we? They were all here illegally. Do we reward criminals and people that break the law?

Thanks for the suggestions.
I already have provided him a mailing list of the hypocritical Right Wing Wackos with their lips glued to the government teat, occasionally bleating out whines about government teats.
He said that helped a lot.
But here's a really important and interesting question :
How many times can a RWW write about Obama doing Right Wing things that Right Wingers like, and Progressives and liberals dislike, and then claim Obama is a leeeeeeeberal ?
You do understand with your every post, your own posts, prove that that Obama is a Right Winger ?
Now, if you were smart, you'd be taking credit for
- ObamaCare, which is working well, and already cutting insurance costs;
- his anti-union stance, which you like;
- his assassinating lots of civilians with drones, which you like;
- his refusal to bust the Republican filibusters in the Senate, which has stopped democracy, which you like;
- and his continued funding of Socialist Security and Medicare, which keeps you alive.
Just sayin....
Let's see, since Obama is governing almost as Right Wing as Bush, and you loved Bush, what could possibly account for the hatred of one of them.
I wonder ........
being against unions, against
You can go on and on about Obama being right wing, but that's simply not true. You present your fantasy as if your points are a patented right wing strategy. The point I am making is all about Obama. A CAT could have determined that he was nothing but a fraud and a liar. We needed someone who could help this country. To state that Obama was better than those running against him is purely speculation and crazy. Do you understand that you voted twice for someone who had virtually NO experience in governmental affairs?????? He had been a community organizer. That's it. He somehow became a senator and did NOTHING while in that seat. He was trumped up by the lunatic media and you clueless wonders lapped it up. He allowed the unions to buy him, bailed out the auto industry and stamped it "debt paid". A right winger wouldn't have given you the time of day. In that respect, a right winger would have at least been honest about his/her intentions. You seem to think you will be exempt from Obamacare, so you think Obamacare is wonderful. I'm glad you think that because you are going to be squarely in the middle of it. Your union can't save you; waivers or not. All you do is live in the past. The time for that is over. You had better wake up.

Senile McCain is at it again.
"McCain: I Don't Know How Many Passports We Let You Forge."
"In the Immigration legislation that passed in the Senate, Section 1541 "Trafficking in Passports," it explains in detail that a person can be charged for a crime if they forge "3 or more passports," meaning that they potentially would not be charged if they falsely made only one or two passports. The criminal charges and penalties do not kick in until after "3 or more passports" are falsely made, issued, or transferred, etcetera."
