Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
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.
I thought George W's hunt for WOMDs in Iraq was utter horseshit and brought the ire of the Middle East to our door step so he was no prize either and helped to set-up a lot of the economic crap that we are suffering with now. But, Barack is by no means perfect. As a matter of fact, his rather loose stance with illegal immigration hints at treason. I guess it will all come out "in the wash", as an old-time religion snake tent preacher would say to me.

You're jumping all over the place and making no sense. Truthfully, I'm a little disappointed.
You asked me why I said Romney's mormonism didn't help.
My response should have been an adequate answer. There was nothing else implied.
Galt senses that Carol is avoiding discussion of her church preaching against the LDS Church, as a cult. This from those who take every word in the Bible literally.

No. The problem with Akin and his kind are that they are so opposed to abortion under any circumstances that they are willing to claim that pregnancy does not result from "legitimate" rape. So they blame the victim for becoming pregnant.
The number of people opposed to abortion in the case of rape or incest is tiny, mostly religious idiots. Same in the case of a badly deformed or retarded child.
And those folks voted against Romney because of his religion.
Useless baggage.
He actually said he understood it to be rare. At least one physician agreed in my research but I didn't spend too much time looking into it.

Most pro-lifers believe rape to be one of the few exceptions. Just like Romney.

Well, it turns out he didn't.
On 1/14/03 he was closer to the truth; "We basically feel that he is a danger to our oil supply there,"
He even tried to tie Sadaam Hussein to 9/11 on 9/14/ 03;
Well, no, there's never been any connection made.

So, what did Realtime do to avoid creating lots of little Realtimes?
Patience and understanding.

Thanks, EasyEed. Galt mostly agrees.
However, cite for us the section of Washington law and/or regulations that requires all patrons purchasing liquor to produce identification. Galt submits that your observations are based on policies of the establishment, not on law. The law states that license holders MAY request identification, not SHALL request identification.
"John Galt"
They may request ID. Correct. But if they do not and the person is in the bar illegally they are subject to fines and possible license loss. Recently I met my daughter and her husband for a drink. My daughter was asked for her ID. She produced it. The server said they ID persons they do not know if they look younger than 40. My daughter was thrilled, she is 47.

Sounds like abstinence, at least when the field was fertile.

"Illegally" means underage, not lacking identification.

Depends on the definition of "liberal", which is foreign to today's Socialist Democrat Party.

Liberals believe in individual rights versus the state. No true liberal would ever force Obamacare.

It was abstinence__but not sworn or pledged or any of that silliness__ but sort of like seasonal abstinence. Kinda like__OK next Tuesday just to be on the safe side__and then on Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday twice and maybe Sunday afternoon right after church down by the lake, maybe even in the lake if the ice melts.

Understood, and Galt agrees that the pledging is silly.

If more could follow that practice, then the need for abortion would be minimal.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi aren't all there.
Charlie Rangel too. He recently said "millions" of children have been killed by assault weapons. According to statistics, approximately 550 children were killed by guns in 2012.
Most them were in the hallways of his constituents' apartment buildings. Those crimes are so normal, they are underreported without anger or protest by the black community.

And many of his future constitutents were killed by syringe and forceps, which Democrats find acceptable and encourage over abstinence and personal responsibility.

Abstinence and personal responsibility interfere with the Victim Industry and are perceived as racist discussions.

Secrets of the right-wing conspiracy playbook

The debate over immigration and the border is a classic example of how the extreme right manipulates real issues

The extremist right in America has always fed on real grievances that go either unaddressed or are mishandled by the mainstream system—by government, and in particular the federal government. In the 1980s and ’90s, they channeled discontent with badly malfunctioning federal farming and land-use policies in rural America into uprisings like the Posse Comitatus and Patriot/militia movements and their various offshoots, such as the Montana Freemen. This led to armed standoffs with federal agents and varying waves of domestic terrorism, all of it emanating from the American heartland.

What these extremists always tell their audiences is that there are simple reasons for their current miseries—inevitably, it is a combination of a secret cabal of elite conspirators running society like a puppet show at the top, crushing the middle-class working man from above, while a parasitic underclass saps his strength from below. This usually plays out, in the worldview of right-wing extremists, as being part of a secret conspiracy to enslave ordinary working people and destroy America.

What gives them special traction, however, is their knack for finding unaddressed grievances and exploiting them as examples of this conspiracy, thus manipulating working-class people who have legitimate problems. Their agenda comes wrapped in an appeal telling people that they not only feel their pain but have the answers to end it. And their strategy works, time and again.
