"Plain and simple, I can discuss any issue with anyone as long as they can maintain some semblance of reason,"
This statement made by you, kinda blows your, you "didn't read any further" out of the water..LOL
Just as long as they continue to think and believe what you do, they have a "semblance of reason". However the moment they step out of the box, they become racist, homophobic and unreasonable...
And you do not see yourself as controlling?
You reject anyone who has a differing opinion than you do followed by an array of insults....
Just because people do not accept homosexual behavior does not make them homophobics.. I know many people who would not feel comfortable kissing or having sex with the same sex... I guess we can call you and your kind hetero-phobic.... NTR herself admitted, she would not want to kiss a woman.. Yet she's not seen as a homophobic? WTF is up with that? Other than selective labeling.. As long as they have no problem with your lifestyle of choice, everything is just peachy keen... You're a hypocrite...
DP does not need a pat on the head from me and I most certainly would not insult the man by doing so, just as I don't with others...
It is more like you and your ilk who not only needs but requires the coddling.. God knows I have been down that path with a few...
Accept it Jax, it is you and people like you who pushes people away from being understandable and reasonable.. You want others to do all of the giving without giving anything of yourself... You refuse to take any kind of personal responsibility or hold others that you rally behind responsible as you are dependent on being a recipient of what is to be given.. Where there are those of us who simply are not dependent on being recipients of anything that we can't provide or give to ourselves...
DP and I have already had our exchanges of differences and I do not see that changing any time soon just because we are in agreement on this ACA and people needing to be responsible for providing for themselves instead of riding off of their color or the skirt/shirt tails of others....
Unlike you, I do not stomp my feet, cry, whine, rant and rave because someone does not agree with me... I have learned much from numerous posters here on the threads.. Unlike you and you ilk, I have no problems not being a know-it-all and learning from others who just may be a little less educated than I am, because they did not go to college.. I do not hold that over anyone's head as I have the good sense to know, intelligence comes in many packages, shapes and forms along with color.. There have been and are many successful people in this world who has had only a grammar school education, others with just a high school education and they are doing just jim dandy..
And their voices and opinions are just as important as anyone else's is....
But you keep on tryin' to throw DP under the bus for stating his own independent mind and opinion.. You and your ilk are everything This Country is NOT.... Socialist commies...
Socialist commies is exactly what they appear to be.

My guess is he's playing with you and the conservatives on here.
My hope is that he has been sincere these last few days, because he's been saying everything people like me agree with.
He is REWBA though, well established for the former.
Either way it's entertaining.
I always have liked Rewba. I think he exhibited common sense most of the time.

The prostitute from Washington State said that if we didn't give her food stamps, she would just steal. I replied to her then Gaylord replied to my reply and told me in an insulting manner to go smoke marijuana or words to that effect. After an exchange of replies between Gaylord and myself, where Gaylord directed snide insults at me with each post he made and when I replied in kind, Irish Whiskey went off the handle admonishing me for making Gaylord cry. I replied to Irish Massage Parlor Lady saying that we should surrender to the war on poverty and let the poor win, or words to that effect, and you replied to my reply saying: "Oooh, be careful what you wish for, starving people are desperate people." reinforcing the claim of the prostitute from Washington State that if we don't give them free s#it, they will steal it. Then you said that there were ways to decrease the abusers but you didn't say what those ways were then you blamed congress so I replied that all we needed was a good "stand your ground law" and you said you were running inside.
Anyway, if you make excuses for people that you do not know, you will live to regret it. There is nothing that makes a beggar happier than when other people start begging on behalf of the beggar.
The way I recall it is that you said we should completely cut off the food stamps, and not sure if you included all assistance, but I assumed you meant that. I said be careful because desperate hungry people do desperate things, meaning, we can't just cut it off, we need to reform it, investigate it, shake all the cheaters loose, you know, while continuing to provide a temporary source of help for those in need. If you leave all those on food stamps with nothing, those cheating AND those deserving; they will do what they have to to survive. At the time, I assumed you were just being dramatic; and when you said the thing about 'stand your ground', I took it as a cue to my exit. I'm in no way a fan of 'stand your ground'(I'm sure you already figured that out), and I imagined lots of starving people getting mowed down for stealing your strawberries and the like.
I made no excuses for anyone, I simply observed what is.
I find all this incredibly sad. You warned me to stay away.

The goat has stalked & harassed her for years. He has a bad way of treating women and is why his best friend is a bottle of lube and his right hand.

Moreover... its obvious that his wife dumped him as well as the mythological 6 figure bed pan changer who used to frequent his house before the Republican led gov't shutdown happened.

Now the goat will have to change bed pans himself... I bet you he will now goto Home Depot and hire an illegal cuz we all know that no English speaking person will do that job and put up with his pie hole.

No, you are the type of liberal who likes to be praised by those less fortunate.. Little do they know, how your "riches" or "fortunes" was handed down to you...
It's the reason you haven't got a clue what it is like to work hard, compete with your peers and so forth.. When you give everything away, there is nothing left to survive on.. But leave it to you leeching liberals to suck the blood out of This Country just so you can spin around and get all dizzy and fuzzy with one another....
You can't revive the 60's, its an era that you simply missed out on, fake spirit.. And your parents and grand parents did no justice for you....
You have so MANY delusions in your head about who people here are. You are just so d*mned wrong with your made up revisionist history about them. It just disgusts me. Freebie has stated the facts, expressed clearly her life experience, but you can't accept the truth - especially so when somebody sees the truth about you from your very OWN words.

Apart from a complete cave to the left's wish list, no matter what the republicans put on the table, the Democratic-led Senate wasn't about to acquiesce and the White House (that would be Obama) promised a veto.

McCain was right. The partisanship in D.C. has reached levels never seen before. The two biggest culprits on the left are the documented racist Harry Reid and the documented narcissist-in-chief B. Hussein O.

I simply realized that there are some people in this world that there is no help for. No matter what society does for them it's never enough. They will always make the worst choices possible then blame society for their choices and demand a handout. Not a hand up but free stuff forever.
As far as Immigration Reform goes, My wife is an immigrant. Chinese Panamanian. She had to fill out the forms, undergo the medical exams, purchase the photos, pass the background checks, pay the fees, pass the tests and wait her turn in line INSIDE her country of origin. Nothing wrong with that. Why change it? If my wife can come to America legally, everyone else should too.
My son's have my last name. That makes them German. They are all native born American citizens. They are college students each with a cumulative GPA of 4.0 and have been inducted into several national honors societies. I paid their first year tuition and they did the rest from there. Needless to say, they now have full ride scholarships. One of my son's is severely autistic and is incapable of self care. If he didn't live in my household he would get SSDI and Medicaid but since my household income exceeds a certain dollar amount, he gets nothing. I can't send him out of my household. It's the only place he knows and I don't know anyone who would treat him better that his family so he will live here as long as I live.
We give everyone a shot at college in America. People who fail to seize that opportunity have no excuses. There should be no entitlements to anyone who refuses to go to school. I believe any social welfare program should make education and training a mandatory requirement. Anyone who drops out should be dropped from the welfare and sent dumpster diving for a living.
I'm not unreasonable. I simply believe that people make choices and if they chose to be poor then let them be. If they need a hand up, I'll extend mine but I refuse to be FORCED to carry them.
Well stated and props to ya..

I work with a woman (Obama supporter) who is a part timer and in a different dept. She makes minimum wages and has Section 8, free healthcare, food stamps and only pays $2 for her cab fee to work. She doesn't have a car. I know this because she tells everyone. She only pays a $2 for her cab fare because she receives gov. vouchers to pay the balance.She has no children, in her 50s.
I told her I always had to work even when my children were small with no government aid. She became angry and told me that it isn't wrong to collect welfare because of unemployment and that everyone doesn't have a choice in how their life is.
I disagree.
I told her one day, I had to stop at the Krogers or Walmarts whichever one was open on the way home from work for a few groceries and since it was the 1st of the month it would be crowded with the welfare shoppers.
.......she said, why do you say that? I said because they are there. She said so are the factory workers, the people who work in the medical field (hospital where we work) and other business workers.
The point I was trying to make with her is the welfare do not work and earn the money they use to shop or live on. The workers do.
She didn't get it.
My family said "she never will get it because she is part of it."
She actually was criticizing people for working.
Don't get me wrong, I have held jobs in the janitorial, clerking, waitress when I was younger and going to school. Not afraid to do any type of work.
Food stamp payments are not all paid out on the 1st of the month. They're distributed over the 1st week of the month based upon when they first applied for benefits. Of course this may vary from state to state.

So the first week of every month will likely be more busy but since a majority don't work, they do their shopping before the 5 pm rush to the store from the working folk.

Just some food for thought.

Study: Global war on drugs is failing
http://wwmt.com/news/features/featured/storie...
New research suggests the global war on drugs is failing. A study published by the British Medical Journal finds illegal drugs have become significantly cheaper, while their potency has increased. In addition, the price of illegal drugs internationally has fallen despite a general increase in police seizures. Researchers say the war on drugs has heightened crime, corruption and violence, but done little to slow the sale of illegal drugs.

It's easy to be liberal with other peoples money. That's the liberals for you. Local, state, federal, their all the same. Always scheming to get another 1% tax for one cause or another. If it's not the sales tax, it's the property tax. "It's For The Children!" is their mantra. It's not for the children. It's handed to the irresponsible parents that put those children in the poor farm before they were ever born.
If you want to help out a certain cause, by all means, donate! Just don't force every person who is trying to earn money to raise their family to donate to your cause. Having liberals stealing some out of my paycheck then stealing a little more out of my groceries, then tack a little more onto my property tax is getting old! Now they want to charge me double for health insurance so that someone else will get one for free? Tell them to get of their a$$es and go to work!
Why do liberals believe that someone has to hire them? Get off your A$$es, grab a trash sack and walk around picking up empty cans on the side of the highway. Collect scrap iron and sell it for cash. While you are walking around picking up cans, look for signs with the letters "H E L P W A N T E D" and apply for a job. It's EASY! Then when you look at your pay statement and watch 30+% deducted in taxes and go to the store and see another 8+% added to the cost and look at your property tax statement and see a 5 point mill levy increase, You will learn how to say "Sorry Charlie" the next time you pass a bum with a cup begging for change.
"You will learn how to say "Sorry Charlie" the next time you pass a bum with a cup begging for change."

We got rid of those in Marion county.. In two count them two days they were gone from our streets and highways.. I tell ya the truth they would break into foreclosed homes and sleep at night.. The next day out there panhandling all the while taking shifts and having their lunch's and dinners brought to them in a newer car.. The rude little bastards about got a cap busted a few time's when I was on the glide..

No, actually I haven't noticed that and I spent a lot more time actually talking to the man that you have.
Who cares anyway, DP is yesterday's news.
Got anything new you want to whine about?
One thing you know for sure is that DP is capable of seeing both sides of the issue with 20/20 clarity and has proven more than capable of defending either side of the issue.

On the issue of Obamacare, there are some good things, but the bad things about the ACA outweigh any good by far. The republicans are on the right side of this argument.

The Democrats are saying that delaying the individual mandate and associated fines it a kin to "DE-FUNDING" the ACA. That means they haven't found the ways and means to fund it so they are depending on those who will pay double to pay for those who will pay nothing. That is redistribution of wealth and it is unfair. Everyone knows it! Liberals cry "it's for the children!" but we already have SCHIP and it's payed for with the cigarette tax we put on smokers.(which is another form of taxation without representation but that's another argument)

If Obamacare is the glorious utopia that the proponents claimed it will be then why shouldn't those senators, representatives and the president who signed it into law be forced to get it too? Why exempt themselves and their taxpayer subsidized Cadillac health plans if the ACA is so marvelous?

That is all the two riders on this continuing resolution asked and the Democrat controlled senate and they flipped America the bird and said FU America! We refuse to allow Individuals" to have the same time as "Employers" have to comply with the mandate and HAIL NO! We don't want Obamacare for ourselves! That's for all you succkers out there!

Do men actually gossip more than women?
http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2...
According to the study men are the bigger chatterboxes and are more likely to talk for the sake of talking! And yet, more isn't merrier here; because they aren't as good as women when it comes to expressing themselves.
