2014 can't get here fast enough for 'We the People' to put Speaker Pelosi back in her rightful place as the Democrats take back the House from these ignorant right-wing bottom-dwellers.

No surprise. Look at the Governor of TexASS, praying for rain. Tells us something about the intelligence of the TexASS electorate.

From the article:
Barton (said) he was ashamed that the White House had reached a deal requiring the company to set aside $20bn for clean-up and restoration costs. Barton said,'I apologize'.

See. Dirty oily kingpins need serfs to bow down & worship them. All the better when the serfs confuse God with oily kingpins.......
The real problem is america elects serfs to do the bidding of kings...... oily kings.

'Holy' Joe Barton is a solid example of the reasoning and logic that chased me out of the GOP years ago.
As long as dinosaurs like this set GOP social, science and education agenda's the GOP will be a toxic political wasteland.
If they could just shut up...

The power brokers of re-pubic-lick-uns hooked the religionists in, by saying abortion was wrong. Power broker re-pubic-lick-uns never did anything about abortion, but religionist re-pubic-lick-uns stay on point,'leading the squad' to battle. Power broker re-pubic-lick-uns let religionist re-pubic-lick-uns talk, while the power broker re-pubic-lick-uns push controls from behind the curtain.

Same here. I always considered myself a conservative libertarian republican, but then the religious crazies & racists took over the party.

on the Other hand the radical feminists are as shrill.
I had participated in DU a liberal version of this type of forum. There you will find a group of feminists that review each post for PC. Debating a guy on freedom of speech and the banning of certain words. I recalled Blazing Saddles and what Mel Brooks had done with the dreaded 'N' word. And added that if SCOtUS upheld a ban on gay marriage it would be valid to call Scalia a c*ck s*ck*r....
The feminists slammed me as Homophobic and racist....they want me banned, are gonna put me on trial.

Been that way for fifty years for both parties. and only gonna get worse as long as wallstreet,tbtf, and the fed control this country. When the value of the fiat money goes to zilch, it'll be interesting to see what the c--k---kers will fight over.No wonder nobody want to invest in this fledgling banana republic.Instead of calling your representative, practice the new national anthem.........."The banana boat song" Those in control love it when you join their circus.

You seem to be around often enough to check us out, you closet leftie, you.
Either you're relying on your prefabricated stereotype, or you spotted us while hiding behind your Grande Frappuccino.

Regardless of party, why would you want a liar and someone that ignored their oath of office the first time, to be placed back in power? It sure seems self defeating.
