Finally! People are organizing to stand up to the so-called conservatives that duped the voters in November that they were about "Jobs". It turns out that across the nation, these newbie storm troopers were only interested in ramming through their rigid social agenda. In lockstep, from Washington D.C. to St. Paul they're out to bust unions, roll back environmental protections, weaken gun laws, defund public broadcasting, etc. In Washington, it's lucky that Senate Dems and Obama could choose to derail their campaign. I pray that they have the guts. In MN, we're very lucky that Gov. Dayton is here to blunt their initiatives. I hope that Wisconsinites can organize a recall petition to oust those fanatical Republicans led by Herr Walker. A party built on the "facts" and lies of a Michelle Bachmann cannot stand!

She needs to turn to the Lord and repent. There is no sin he cannot forgive. Turning to your colleagues in government and utilizing dramatic license to justify continued funding for sinful acts is not honorable.

i wish she would introduce a bill th change the pledge of allegiance to add the words "including the unborn" at the end. Then I would view her as sincere.

Republicans claim that they can create jobs. Democrats do the same. Neither can, unless they confiscate wealth from the private sector and create another job in some bureaucracy.

Your argument is half right. The republicans are a bunch of lying, conniving, thieving grifters. Where you go off the rails is your belief that the democrats are any different.

We have been getting screwed for decades by political dirtbags from both parties, and will continue to do so until we the people choose to end the charade.

To believe that one party is full of lies and an evil agenda, while believing that the pols across the aisle all wear white hats and have nothing but our best interests at heart is the height of either partisan loyalty or political naivete.

Regardless of the affiliation of the person in the White House or the majority in Congress, the results continue to be the same. How can that be the fault of only one side of the aisle?

Now we get to listen as the abortion proponents silently scream... almost as if they were having their brains sucked out of their skulls.

Tell me, how many abandoned babies have you adopted?

You have made my point.

I can't "take the Lord out of it"

You think you can.

He made you.

He said he knew you before you were in the womb.

The eugenicists amongst the American Left don't understand the most rudimentary economics. The slow implosion of their own bureaucratic set-ups was inevitable once they started killing babies. Take the 55 Million babies and their progeny the Demons have killed for convenience... Add their taxes and labors to the scenario and none of it would have failed. Communist Democrats are not only stupid, they are suicidal. They and the stupid electorate ever allowing their invasion of all administration in America deserve exactly what they are getting if for nothing more than the innocent, defenseless blood that's on their hands.

So, the Republicans are all about "jobs," right - and yet, they seem hell bent on pushing their fascist social agenda above anything else. Typical.

Well said, and the rebuttle to the republican haters is really simple..i'm not interested in funding "anything" outside of needs. Period end of story...and yes that includes your gf's birth control and her abortions. It includes the music "chosen" by MPR, it even includes Sesame Street! I couldnt care less about funding anything in the Middle East and I don't care about their freedoms from the tyrannies that pervade over there. I'm worried only about the tyrannies perpetrated in Washington.
I won't pay for your medical care, or your retirement income, CUT it all..get rid of it all. Promise me you'll vote for that and i'll vote for you evertime. Protect my borders, enforce the basic elementary laws, ensure we have roads and mail. We don't need the government for anything else. Cut the funding by 80%.

This is getting crazy. I would like to see the Democrat party fade into history and have the two major parties be the Republicans and the Independents.
We may all be better off if that happens.

You'd rather support a socialist agenda? Either way, we lose.

Republicans claim that they can create jobs. Democrats do the same. Neither can, unless they confiscate wealth from the private sector and create another job in some bureaucracy.

At first, I thought such a mediocre concept would be from the boring, listless State of Indiana, or from the inbred State of Ohio, but no, it's from the State electing a Communist comedian for their Senator. Fascism is a form of Socialism and was formulated by a main Socialist Party player in Italy by the name of Mussolini... Reincarnated as Hillary Clinton in a business suit.

USSR tried one party rule. China has one party rule. You want that?
Nazi fascists had one party rule. The Republicans are following that model.

Benito Mussolini was a main propagandist for the Socialist Party of Italy and coined the term Fascism. Do we really need to literally hold your wittle hands?

The GOP at their finest going after the low-hanging fruit: banning abortions, bashing gays, and breaking up the unions. Never mind healthcare costs that are skyrocketing, oil resources that are depleting, and social security/medicare costs that are skyrocketing, those are just beyond their comprehension.

Please tell us what the democrats have done about any of these. The promote the killing of babies, have done nothing about skyrocketing healthcare costs except for redistributing who pays for the skyrocketing healthcare costs, done nothing about oil resources, social security and medicare. And the gay bashing, tell us ONE thing that the republicans do that Bash Gays.

Obamacare as we all know now means higher taxes and higher premiums, unions bloodsuck the public for tax dollars as there pensions are unfunded and in deficits for one trillion dollars, Obama is at war with the American taxpayer.

Any given year that you look at the statistics you will see that far more white babies are aborted than black. While it's true there are fewer black people in America, the total numbers do not at all support such a claim of five times more black children being aborted than white.
