Michigan GOP Recruits Civil Rights Act Critic Rand Paul To Launch African American Outreach Project

After Paulís disastrous attempt at the historically-black Howard University in April to convince the African Americans to vote for the GOP, Paul seems unlikely to win many of the 97.5 percent of Detroit voters who backed President Obama last year, regardless of their race.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
You were correct and the deal with Iran the Bozo Obama and his lackey Lurch John "Heinz" Kerry were part of is yet another example of how Obama is putting everyone in danger.

Legalizing barbarism in one phase of development opens the door to legalizing barbarism in all phases of barbarism.

Sorry if this is true, but there's a movement underway already to legalize Gosnell's type of barbarism.

The door only has to be opened a jar first.

Even most liberals don't condone Gosnell's type of barbarism.

Most liberals don't even condone late-term abortions. Anyone here who does?

3 Charts Explain Why Democrats Went Nuclear on the Filibuster

No one has completely clean hands when it comes to filibusters in the Senate. Democrats have used them and Republicans have used them. But hoo boy, Republicans sure have used them more. That's why Democrats went nuclear on Thursday. Three charts tell the story.

The first two charts show the evolution of filibusters by presidential administration. As you can see, their use rose steadily through the '80s and then leveled off starting around 1990. Democrats mainly kept things pretty stable throughout the Bush administration, increasing the number of filibusters only in his last two years when a change of power seemed imminent. When Obama took over, however, there was no honeymoon, not even for a minute. Republicans went into full-bore filibuster mode the day he took office, and they've kept it up ever since. For all practical purposes, anything more controversial than renaming a post office has required 60 votes during the entire Obama presidency.

But it was Republican filibusters of judicial and executive-branch nominees that finally drove Democrats to act on Thursday. Democrats had struck one deal after another with Republicans to try and rein in their abuse of the filibuster, but nothing worked. A few nominees would get through, and then another batch would promptly get filibustered. The chart below tells the tale. Under George Bush, Democrats mounted filibusters on 38 of his nominees. That's about five per year. Under Obama, Republicans have filibustered an average of 16 nominees per year.

The last straw came when Republicans announced their intention to filibuster all of Obama's nominees to the DC circuit court simply because they didn't want a Democratic president to be able to fill any more vacancies. At that point, even moderate Democrats had finally had enough. For all practical purposes, Republicans had declared war on Obama's very legitimacy as president, forbidding him from carrying out a core constitutional duty. Begging and pleading and cutting deals was no longer on the table. Eliminating the filibuster for judicial and executive branch nominees was the only option left, and on Thursday that's what Democrats finally did.

Limbaugh Defends Offensive Rape Comments By Hiding Behind "Absurdity" Defense

After Rush Limbaugh compared recently enacted filibuster reform to a vote "allow[ing] women to be raped," a spokesman defended the host by saying, "Limbaugh has spent 25 years illustrating absurdity by using extrapolated analogies." Indeed, Limbaugh has a long history of making outrageous, offensive comparisons and invoking rape when discussing politics.

Guess I ran off Galt again. Not sure why he holds such a grudge against anyone who doesn't see eye-to-eye with him on some social issues.

This all started because I am pro-life. He seems to think being against abortion will determine the outcome of elections. I don't agree.

Anti-abortionists are on both sides of the fence. But only the liberal side wants to make a political issue out of it come election time.

Conservative candidates should make a point of pointing that out during the next two elections.

But everyone is entitled to their opinion on something as controversial as abortion without being demonized by someone on the same side of the fence. We get enough of that from the other side.

barbarism....

Tea Party Mantra; Save the Embryo, Forget About the Children

....itís abundantly clear that children and by extension, women, are at the bottom of the chain of concern to Teapublicans. Come 2014 and 2016, Democrats can actually campaign on a truth platform. The truth is that the opposing party by cruel cuts in programs for children, women, the unemployed, the poor and minorities, by right-wing enthusiasm for weakening regulations that would lower pollution and markedly decrease asthma and countless other respiratory consequences, by attempting to destroy the Affordable Health Care Act and hand entitlements to the financial private sector, by hatred of public schools and by a zeal for wars to benefit the Cheney-types in our population, has no interest in you or your kidís well-being.

No one was there to see exactly what happened. Unfortunately, Trayvon didn't know that neighborhood had been targeted by theft perpetrated by young black men or he may have understood why Zimmerman had focused on him so intensely. It might have curbed his bad attitude toward Zimmerman which the Defense witness testified he had.
What if Zimmerman was telling the truth and Trayvon saw the gun and was trying to go for it?
That's something we'll never know. It was a sad tragedy, nothing more.
It was the liberal media who sparked a new racial current of hatred in this country because of it. No one else did that.

Six nominees you moron? Wow! So how many Obama appointees have the GOP filibustered nitwit? How about 84? That's half of all the filibusters against nominees since the country existed you vomitous cretin! When Bush nominees were being challenged the Republicans were always demanding an "up or down" vote. Did they give any of Obama's nominees that? No.
You're an idiot Marty!
Hey IDIOT! Democrats started the high number of filibuster moves back when Nixon was president and you DemocRATS are the experts at "BORKING" nominees, MORON!

Obama is the most radical leftwing president in history, so what do you expect?

Your Ministry of Propaganda has flooded the web with your propaganda, as usual, so idiots like you could repeat the cherry picked talking points.

Maybe if your Socialist Party's Fuhrer Obama was appointing moderates who could be trusted to actually apply "the law" instead of being corrupt puppets, the Republicans would be approving them like they did when Clinton was president.

There's always two sides to a story, deekhead. Little Zombie propaganda zombies like you always spin and hide the true story, Bork boy.

You are a liar and an idiot!

Zimmerman should have stayed home after reporting Trayvon's behavior to the police. That's what should have happened.

But since the police agreed to meet him somewhere on the complex, what would you do if you were ambushed and had a gun that could be used on you?

This case was not worthy of national attention or presidential attention or Justice Departmental attention.

It got blown up out of proportion because a liberal media news network decided to make it racial - on purpose - and started the ball rolling.

You are another hypocrite.

"CT Superintendent To Congress: Obamacare Means Higher Budgets, Fewer Teachers"

"At a time when student needs are increasing, budgets are shrinking and state and federal mandates escalating, we cannot effectively sustain these significant health care expenses,Ē Benigni told the 41-member U.S. House of Representatives Education and Workforce Committee last week, according to The Record-Journal.ďThis will cause us to cut staff, reduce programs, minimize current healthcare plans, cut employee hours and consider outsourcing current services. It will be our students who lose out."
