IMO Obama is lying, he's scaremongering:

Obama said;
. "Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country," he said. "Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings."

The LA Times agrees with me:

Why was the NAZI party called the National Socialist Democratic Workers Party and why do people want Socialism? Seriously, if NAZI party ...
Clearly all American "democrats" can be called nazis.

A lot of these folks are in extreme defense mode after losing the election, because even just reading the term "Republican" has become synonymous with loser and extremists and obstructionists.

I think it's already too long post election to still be in denial and in a paranoiac state of being. On the other hand, with all of the unfavorable press from every mainstream publication about the degree and extent of bad policy, mathematically impossible policy, special interest policy, extremism and obstructionism being at the root of their loss, I can sympathize. Rather than attacking here, they should be reorganizing their efforts toward a more MODERATE Republican party of fiscal conservatism that might attract all kinds of folks who are totally turned off to the party right now. About the only way I see Republicans gaining ground is by pushing out the fringe elements who want to dictate to the rest of us their social agendas, their religious perspectives and their outright prejudices of divisiveness.

I'm not too encouraged by reading what is posted here that there's a prayer they'll get there anytime soon.

The polls show the same thing although right now you can't convince a right winger of that.
They have an online survey.
The very term "immigration reform" is a joke. What is needed is a way to keep this country from being over ran by Mexico's unwanted native population, because that's exactly what is going on. Mexico doesn't want their natives, they don't want to help them, they want them out, gone, real simple. They assist them in that endeavor.
That is never going to change until they're all gone.
Mexico also zealously guards their own southern border to keep invaders out. They don't want any blacks there either..

Presidents die their hair. When they want to look wise and knowing they die their hair white. When they want to be reelected, they want to look young and healthy so they die their hair darker.
It's a tradition that dates back to the powdered wigs of noblemen. George Washington didn't use a wig. He powdered his real hair.
I think we the people aught to force all our elected representatives to wear a powdered wig or to powder their real hair whenever they meet in session to do the peoples business. Not because it does anything to make them smarter or anything like that. It's just that they don't seem to be doing anything and we are paying them so the least they can do is to get into costume and entertain us on CSPAN.
"die their hair" hilarious.

FYI wigs were common because of all the bugs people had to live with back then. Short hair was easier to control the bugs.

Is the media truly liberal? Well, what about these ploys of theirs:

Ranking The News. The liberal media has the ability to manipulate public opinion by judging the value and importance of news.

Picking and Choosing. In a step beyond ranking the news, the liberal media has sole authority to pick and choose which news stories receive press coverage.

Preferential Treatment. The liberal media has its friends and its enemies. Anyone who shares its liberal slant is considered to be a comrade, and anyone in the conservative camp is regarded as a foe.

Negative Spotlighting. When something occurs that threatens established liberal dogma, the media reports on this activity so they can alert counterparts in the various liberal activist groups.

The Friendly Fool. The best turn of events the liberal media can hope for is when someone from the opposition does something it can use.

The Team Player Ploy. Because everyone wants to be part of the establishment, the elite press has been able to win over enemies by encouraging them to be team players.

The Name Game. This is when the press assigns names to groups in order to place a pro-liberal spin on them. The abortion issue is a good example. People who are in favor of abortion are called "pro-choice," a phrase that transforms the act from the killing of the unborn to a rights issue.

Rewriting History. The boldest of the liberal media's tricks is the brazen rewriting of history.

Comedy. Few people realize how strongly the monologues of NBC's "The Tonight Show" and CBS's "Late Show," along with skits from "Saturday Night Live," influence public opinion.

And if you believe this nonsense I recommend Todd Strandberg's website, Satan's Little Helpers. There you can read how the devil uses the liberal media to manipulate society while simultaneously preparing yourself for the rapture. Halle-freak'n-lujah!!

I selected the shortest definitions I could locate which provided a brief view of each. I did not dissect each sentence or assume that either definition encompassed all ideologies of either philosophy. I also "do not believe protecting civil liberties and individual human rights is strictly a liberal concept".
What is "my way" Jax? How do these two definitions provide you any insight into my values? I was raised in a conservative home which NEVER supported any type of segregation. Civil and human rights were ALWAYS emphasized as important and just.
How did this simple post in any way determine for you that I am in any way "extreme"? I find your statements as very untrue and insulting. Part of the problem I have identified by reading posts on this thread is that liberals seem to consider moderate conservatives as "extreme" these days.
I have definite and firm beliefs, but I do not consider them radical. I guess being "extreme" is in the eye of the beholder.
...I also "do not believe protecting civil liberties and individual human rights is strictly a liberal concept"...

Then we don't have a problem.

I can only go by what you post and what you posted said that this was part of the definition of a liberal and not something conservatives believed in.

I assumed you had read it.

President Obama said Friday that his new voting-rights commission will help to prevent state officials from engaging in “new tricks” that discourage minorities from voting.
“It’s very important that we work together to make sure everybody gets a chance to vote, and we clear away a lot of this nonsense,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with SiriusXM radio. He added that the country needs more election rules “to make sure that people aren’t waiting in line for six, seven hours, that there aren’t new tricks that discourage people from voting.”

Deficit Reduction: Focus Mostly on Spending But Keep Taxes in Mix If No Deal is Struck, Four - in-Ten Say Let the Sequester Happen

http://www.people-press.org/files/legacy-pdf/...

With little more than a week to go, barely a quarter have heard a lot about the scheduled cuts, while about as many have heard nothing at all.
And if the president and Congress cannot
reach a deficit reduction agreement before the
deadline, 40% of Americans say it would be
better to let the automatic spending cuts go
into effect, while 49% say it would be better to
delay the cuts. Both Republicans and independents are divided evenly over which approach is better, and even among Democrats, roughly a third favor letting the sequester take effect over any delays.
The new survey, conducted Feb. 13-18, 2013 with 1,504 adults nationwide, is the first in a collaboration between the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY.

It finds that, as with previous conflicts over the debt ceiling and fiscal cliff, Obama holds the upper hand politically over congressional Republicans. If there is no deficit deal by March 1, 49% say congressional Republicans would be more to blame while just 31% would mostly blame President Obama. Moreover, 76% say that the president and Congress should focus on a combination of spending cuts and tax increases to reduce the budget deficit. Just 19% agree with the current Republican position that tax increases should be off the table.(cont.)

I was a little surprised I got attacked over that post, but your right about the far right turning away potential support.

Their quick to turn on their own too.

Did you see that picture of Rove the Tea Party Patriots put out?

Never thought I'd be on Karl Rove's side of any argument, but compared to the radicals in his own party he suddenly seems down right reasonable.

You're focused on Mexico when the reality is that 40% of the illegal population enters on legitimate visas and never goes home when time is up. This form of illegal immigration brings us all kinds of new competition in other sectors of the income spectrum. We have those nice teachers brought in on visas who never went home, those nurses from other lands nobody wants to talk about while our own vie for too few spots in nursing schools here in the USA. Same with doctors and medical schools. Then, as those techie imports fuel profitability for folks like Bill Gates, the quotas go up, but who goes home when time is up? Not many. They make it difficult for our own deeply debt burdened college graduates to find jobs that allow them to pay off student loans and start families. So, they just move back home and in with mom and dad, take jobs as retail clerks (rolling eyes here) and don't start families, which means we need more bodies (according to the way economists view it), but we keep getting bodies whose income levels and willingness to work for less obligate them less and less to paying taxes, which means between that and corporate tax dodges, we keep getting less revenues and more demands for tax dollars.

Somewhere along the line, something has to give, and Mexicans are the least of our worries. It's corporatists and globalists we need to take a stick after - just as soon as we stop belt whipping our congressional representatives for their egregious offenses to Americans.

No, I don't sleep much, or at least on anybody else's schedule. That happens when you retire and don't have any particular place to be on somebody else's schedule. But, it's rather late in the afternoon where I am, so I haven't been here all day;-) Usually, when I do show up, I irritate some fringers. I don't mind if I do.
