Bollocks to both Republicans and Democrats. It is high time we put Dr. Guillotin's sublime invention on wheels and travel about the country and make a clean sweep of these petty little politicians.

Misleading headline, they had the same one at the red star.

They actually lost one seat in the final count. Demoncrats one, Republicans two. That is not a winning percentage.

This is a sign of things to come for 2012. Democrats will take over the house and senate and Obama will win easily. I truly believe that our country wants more government and they also want everyone to be equal. No more rich or poor. The government will help distribute the money so everyone has a fair share. I look forward to these changes.

More government =(more laziness, more apathy, more me now). If you know anything about history you'd understand more government comes right before the fall. Read up and learn.

Beginning of 2011 there were three Republican held Assembly seats. After special election it changes to two Republican held Assembly seats and one held by a Democrat. Seems to me the Republicans lost a seat.

In Massachusetts,the DEMOCRATS control everything and the corruption there is massive. THREE House speakers have been convicted of numerous crimes. ILLEGALS move there to get all the FREE HANDOUTS.

Goodbye to Wisconsin if DEMOCRATS control there again.

Maybe they will re-institute JIM CROW laws as DEMOCRATS always do.

The Free Congress Foundation has had a convicted Nazi collaborator on its staff; a man who was forced to resign from the 1988 Bush campaign when his past became public knowledge.

Laszlo Pasztor actually served a prison term for being, during WWII, part of a Hungarian pro-Nazi group, the Arrow Cross (like the German Nazi Party, only in Hungary). His prison term also related to Pasztor's, during WWII, being a member of a Hungarian diplomatic delegation to Berlin after the Nazis installed the pro-Nazi Arrow Cross as the government of Hungary.

In an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 09/16/88, Pasztor was reported as being a "volunteer" at the Free Congress Research & Education Foundation. However, Pasztor had an internal telephone number at FCF (listed as extension 48 as of 01/21/90) and calls to the FCF main number were routinely connected through to Pasztor. Pasztor himself stated that for several years he generally worked in the FCF office complex Tuesday afternoon through Friday.

According to Pasztor, the FCF gave him office space for his work with the Paul Weyrich sponsored Coalitions for America, and that he routinely provided to Weyrich written reports of his activities. Weyrich at the time was president of FCF and national chair of of Coalitions for America. It is noteworthy that a Coalition for America brochure used a photo of Pasztor to illustrate the work of the Liberation Support Alliance.

Martin Lee in The Beast Reawakens refers to Pasztor as Weyrich's right hand man: http://www.politicalamazon.com/fcf.html http://www.iahushua.com/WOI/nixon_bush.htm http://www.youtube.com/watch ...

Hmmmm.... what's in the coffee this morning? If everyone were equal we're simply sheep with the government as the shepherd, and to get there you run out of other people's money. I suggest you give away the bulk of your assets to those who have less so you can be equal to them. You don't need me and everyone else to participate in your socialistic plan.

For decades, mystery has surrounded an elite secret society at Yale University called the Order of Skull and Bones. One of the organizations most storied legends involves the skull of Apache warrior Geronimo, who died in 1909 after two decades as a prisoner of war at Fort Sill, Okla.
As the story goes, nine years after Geronimo's death, Skull and Bones members who were stationed at the army outpost dug up the warrior's grave and stole his skull, as well as some bones and other personal relics. They then sprinted the remains away to New Haven, Conn., and allegedly stashed the skull at the society's clubhouse, the Skull and Bones Tomb.
To make matters even more intriguing, legend has it that the grave-robbing posse included Prescott Bush, father of George H.W. and grandfather of George W.
A Letter Offers Clues
All of this is speculative; Skull and Bones members swear an oath never to reveal what goes on inside the Tomb. But author Marc Wortman says that when he was at Yale's Sterling Library researching The Millionaire's Unit, his book about young men from the university who flew during World War I, he stumbled on a letter that seemed to confirm the rumor.
Written from one Bonesman to another, the letter, which is dated 1918, reads:
The skull of the worthy Geronimo the Terrible exhumed from its tomb at Fort Sill by your club and the Knight Haffner is now safe inside the Tomb, together with his well-worn femurs, bit and saddle horn.

"Sign" is a socialist, why would he/she have any assets? If he/she did, he/she certainly wouldnt be for this plan.
