Yeah, it's a "black thang", Realtime. That's why there are more black Republicans now than when Obama was elected.

Oh, lordy...
So are you saying it's okay if Democrats don't have moral character as long as they respect women's rights to legally kill their unborn?
I've gotta go do some chores. Thank goodness.
It isn't just about Republicans refusing to allow a woman to have control over her own body in making decisions about abortion. It is about Republican's desire to control a women's body by blocking access to birth control and voting against a woman's right to sue for punitive damages in cases of paycheck discrimination.

You fail to understand that you defeat yourself when you and your party try to force others to live according to your moral point of view. Republicans just can't accept free will.

As usual, you need to work on your definition of terms. SSI is not considered welfare in the rating you use, and it was centered on the amount of extended benefits being paid to the unemployed after Bush's Depression. People like Batty Loo, who've only worked part-time at best, withdrew personal pension funds and spent them (if she is to be believed) is now "retiring" at sixty-two to live the rest of her useless existence on funds she hasn't put in. That's those T-P "Morans" in a nutshell: out there with their misspelled signs demanding that Obammy keep government out of their Medicare. lol

States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:

1. New Mexico:$2.63
2. West Virginia:$2.57
3. Mississippi:$2.47
4. District of Colombia:$2.41
5. Hawaii:$2.38
6. Alabama:$2.03
7. Alaska:$1.93
8. Montana:$1.92
9. South Carolina:$1.92
10. Maine:$1.78

Their sex lives or preferences have nothing to do with womens rights. How do you know Monica didn't like cigar sex? Whose business is it anyway? You'd be surprised how many men take pictures of their penises and send them to people. Did you read about that new cop in SC who sent pictures of his penis to a 13 year old in Iowa? It's not about killing the unborn; it's about the right of women over their own bodies.
I believe in sexual freedom; what people do is their own business.
I agree that Anthony Weiner, John Edwards and Bill Clinton are scoundrels. I'm so grateful that President Obama didn't pick John Edwards for VP! Who did they hurt Carol? They hurt their wives and children and their reputations. Men are weird, especially powerful ones.
However, none of the above ever proposed forcing women to have vaginal probes; forcing women to have rapists babies; giving visitation rights to rapists; charging women who had an abortion with a felony tampering with evidence if she aborted the rapists baby; force women to submit to testing of a miscarriage to prove it wasn't self induced.
You evangelical republicans are like the Taliban; you views are more akin to Sharia law than anyone elses. Funny you can't see that.
Bravo. Excellent post.

Blue State, Red Face: Guess Who Benefits More From Your Taxes?
""The results will stun many people, though not me: I’ve been telling my Tea Party relatives this for years. Here’s a list of the top 10 states that got the most back in terms of federal benefits, followed by the bottom 10. I’ve added the reasons why, when they’re obvious, in the space to the right.
To save space below,“pension benefits” include both Medicare and Social Security; “anti-poverty aid” includes Head Start, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Food Stamp and nutrition programs for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and several school-lunch-style benefits.
Top Ten (Source: Tax Foundation):
1. New Mexico Indian reservations, military bases, federal research labs, farm subsidies, retirement programs
2. Mississippi Farm subsidies, military spending, nutrition and anti-poverty aid, retirement programs.
3. Alaska Per capita No 1 recipient of federal benefits; infrastructure projects, DOT and pork projects.
4. Louisiana Disaster relief, farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, military spending.
5. W. Virginia Farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid.
6. N. Dakota Farm subsidies, energy subsidies, retirement and anti-poverty programs, Indian reservations.
7. Alabama Retirement programs, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, federal space/military spending, farm subsidies.
8. S. Dakota Retirement programs, nutrition aid, farm subsidies, military spending, Indian reservations.
9. Virginia Civil service pensions, military spending, veterans benefits, retirement, anti-poverty aid.
10. Kentucky Retirement programs, nutritional and anti-poverty aid, farm subsidies.
..........
Now consider the bottom 10, i.e., the ones that give more to the federal government in taxes than they get in return. From 1 to 10, they are:
New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, Colorado.
Anything strange about that list? Yes, they are all blue states (or the deepest of purple).
You nitwits are so screwed. You bitch about taxes, yet it's the reddest states (like Flake's WVA and VA) that get far more than they pay in.
If they didn't, WVA and th erest would empty out in a month.
Anecdote!

So-Called "Red State Welfare" = Junk Science
This "red state welfare" hypothesis falls completely apart when we look at the data.
The so-called top 10 "red states" on welfare are New Mexico, Mississippi, Alaska, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, South Dakota, Virginia, and Kentucky.
The purportedly bottom 10 "blue states" not on welfare are New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, and Colorado.
To show how mindless this liberal proposition is, the "red state welfare" argument appears to be entirely based only on how each state voted in the most recent presidential election. This results in entirely junk science.

Your source agrees that the top ten moocher states are the same!!LOL

The only distinction the American Stinker makes is in the political realm. They claim the politics are more 'complicated'. But they don't question the numbers.

They did not dispute the economic numbers at all, which are Gov't numbers.

You lose, but nice try, Gunner.

This is so typical of your diversionary tactics from the past.

You post a link that makes you a liar, hoping nobody will actually look into it. How typical of a crooked cop.

*Sampled "97 Republicans who had chosen to leave the party in recent years"

*"affiliation with a new community"--primarily the Tea Party, Sorock says, which offers the kind of "camaraderie" that the GOP itself no longer provides

Nothing in the post proved "millions of republicans are cancelling the membership"...in fact it stated many have joined the Tea Party which is fine by me. Yup, fine by me.

In the dead of night before the shutdown, the Republicans forced through a rule change, one which effectively handed over control of the government over to one man, Eric Cantor. You see, under the rules of the house, the members of the house had the ability to put the Senate resolution to a vote in the house. Here is the rule, as written:
When the stage of disagreement has been reached on a bill or resolution with House or Senate amendments, a motion to dispose of any amendment shall be privileged.
New Rules, New Leader In Congress.
However, the rule change pushed through in the dead of night without any oversight or debate instead put the authority to proceed into the hands of the majority leader in the house, Eric Cantor. This is the same Eric Cantor who is known for having gutted anti-corruption and bribery legislation. And now, he runs the show. Even House Speaker John Boehner can not bring it up to a vote.
it happens all the time, get over yourself

"The spirit of bipartisan cooperation didn’t survive the first day of the 111th Congress as House Democrats pushed through a package of rule changes Tuesday that the furious Republican minority said trampled their traditional rights to affect legislation"

""In Virginia, government shutdown already hurting a GOP candidate
Just weeks fro

""ICHMOND, Va.— Ken Cuccinelli is running for governor, not Congress, but the Virginia Republican is struggling to dodge the political fallout from Capitol Hill.
His campaign in this crucial battleground state is in danger of becoming the first political casualty of the federal government shutdown, which Americans largely blame on Republicans.
With the election just weeks away, Cuccinelli's poll numbers have tumbled since federal agencies were closed Oct. 1. The conservative state attorney general was already lagging, but he went from within striking distance of a vulnerable Democrat to trailing by 8 to 10 percentage points in three independent polls.
As the candidate, a tea party favorite, seeks to distance himself from fellow activists in Congress, national Republican leaders are worried that a key office they expected to hold in a closely watched election is slipping away.""

The Democrats plan to train people for technical jobs is to fund education. Republican plan is to take money from education, give tax breaks for the wealthy, start a war to protect oil profits and send young Americans off to be killed so that they don't need jobs.
Really.
How long have the Democrats been funding education?
Why is it just now the plan is to actually educate people with this funding?

And, related, what makes you think more money will educate people? We already have the most expensive education system in the world that produces the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.
Obviously, more money isn't the answer.
Since more money obviously isn't the answer, what is the Democrat plan to educate people? Do the Democrats have a plan to get educational performance back to where it was before the so-called "progressives" led it on a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement?

To tell the truth, the only thing Democrats have done with education is destroy what was previously the finest education system in the world, and replace it with the most expensive education system in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.

The only help Democrats could give to education is stay away from it.
Get rid of the Department of Education. Send that money directly to the states.
