Speaking of conservatives having nervous breakdowns, I am thinking of hosting a relive The Karl Rove Meltdown party right here on this thread one night.

We could drink lots of beer and enjoy swapping videos of his now infamous election night debacle. Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Dayshavoo all over again!! Teachers in Michigan call in sick to protest right- to –work bill!! We’ve seen these same tactics used in Chicago, Wisconsin if anyone still thinks it’s about education is delusional it’s simply about Power!!
The former NEA top lawyer Bob Chanin speaking to NEA members reveals the attitude and the arrogance of Unions!! Quote:
Despite what some among us would like to believe it is not because of our creative ideas. It is not because of the merit of our positions. It is not because we care about children and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. NEA and its affiliates are effective advocates because we have power!!
Dayshavoo?

How many meals could be provided by absent fathers? Why aren't you wailing about WHY there are so many who need meals? There's an Inauguration Ceremony every four years - folks lose their jobs, and dead-beat dads abandon their kids, every day.

The First Lady's job is to entertain, and from what I hear she does a creditable turn at the punch bowl. Even if she does occasionally knock over the dessert display, and land in the Champagne Fountain...

Many states also are resisting another key element of the health care reform law's coverage expansion. To date, 21 states have told federal authorities they won't create health insurance exchanges, which will be the online marketplaces for people to comparison shop for health plans and learn whether they qualify for tax credits or Medicaid benefits. The federal government will have to operate exchanges in states that don't build their own.

I cant believe you have the gall to keep shooting off that big mouth after I embarrassed you last night regarding Unversities paying their President's taxes. A mentally-stunted leftist like you should crawl off in shame, never log on to Topix again, and voluntarily give up your right to vote......
You embarrassed yourself.

Tell me again.

What is the difference if the University gives their President a $10K check & puts $2500 in the President's with holding and giving the President a $12,500 bonus where they with hold $2500 & give him a check for $10K.

What is this huge monumental difference?

In Janes world, black people aren't supposed to have parties; the black President shouldn't fly AF1, or golf, or take vacations. He should work 24/7. You know, like slave days.

Karl was readmitted to the FOX club last night.

In Memoriam: The Karl Rove Fox News Prohibition (November 2012–December 2012)

Fox News’s Karl Rove ban did not even last a month. Karl Rove’s self-imposed ban on relevancy is going much better: four years and counting!

Just 34 days after his election night meltdown and 27 days since the alleged election-night-meltdown-relate d ban, the political operative appeared alongside Democratic operative Joe Trippi on Special Report with Bret Baier.(Speaking of bans: Did the Fox News public-relations department prohibit efforts to promote Special Report with Bret Baier? When is the last time anyone has mentioned Special Report with Bret Baier in a context other than “competitive obscure-television-show-recita tion” or “likely misuses of the word ‘special’”?)

Rove discussed: the fiscal cliff. Rove did not discuss: Fox News’s alleged ban on Karl Rove. Politico reports:“‘Gentlemen, welcome back,’ Baier said after introducing the pair.‘Good to be back,’ Trippi replied. Rove did not say anything to address his return.’” In fairness: does a Fox News ban really count as lifted if it’s marked with an appearance on Special Report with Bret Baier? If a boring, poorly marketed tree falls in the forest and no one is around to change the channel, did it make a sound?

http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2012/1...

we could do before and after videos.'The decline and fall of the man who fooled himself, and many others, into thinking that there could ever be a permanent Republican majority.'

dude fell hard. he's back on FOX isn't he? how low can you go?

Unions...
"Despite just being named Sacramento's "Teacher of the Year," Apperson was laid off as part of a massive budget cut"

and another...
"For example, in June 2010, long before Scott Walker was elected, Milwaukee Public Schools fired 482 teachers--including Megan Sampson, a young educator named an "outstanding first year teacher" by the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English."
Collective bargaining...

What POSs were kept instead of these two star performers Dave?
Before the union, school districts would regularly fire the older teachers that were making more money & replace them with newbies out of college & pay them less.

Bill O’Reilly thinks he’s figured out who started the imaginary War on Christmas: gays and women

Comment of the day on YouTube:

Ok, the WAR ON CHRISTMAS is the queers fault? Dude, I’m gay and have 3 Christmas trees. Who the hell do you think is buying all these decorations? My house looks like Rudolph pooped Christmas cheer all over my house. Christmas rocks! Stop blaming the gays for all your problems.

But I've had a change of heart about Republicans simply letting Obama take us over the cliff.
Republicans need to reach some sort of agreement even if it's with an AWOL president who still thinks he's on the campaign trail. Obama is much too eager to raise everyone's taxes and gut defense spending just to get his way.
