But that's just the point.
Republicans don't get themselves elected to Congress
in order to get things done. They get themselves elected to keep the Democrats from doing anything.
Non-functional, unresponsive government is just
what conservatives want. In fact, if they could
"drown it in a bathtub" they'd be happy as clams.
Question: How can we have a nation of 310 million
citizens without a functional government?
Ask a Republican.

Blacks had to eat, drink and

Now, old white men are the minority.
You're powerless.

You live in Stupid Rightwingnutland, apparently, which is why you're trying to shout down anyone who disagrees with you simply because he's Canadian.

As if American and Canadian business didn't have strongly interrelated interests, sales, and even facilities, too. How dumb ARE you?:)

You're a liar and a hypocrite. You've NEVER "returned a post with facts," and you attack people on a personal basis all the time...including with perverse sexual comments.

Is your picture next to the word "hypocrite" in the dictionary?

LOL...fool.

Piss off. I care because allot of your foreign, and economical policies, directly affect Canada, and the rest of the world. That's what happens when you are a super power.

Why do you think a large majority in the world think the GOP is a gigantic joke. The only problem is, it's not that funny the way they are threatening the global economy, by weakening the American people.

You might want to start by educating your future leaders. You can start 1st, by listening to the scientists, real historians, and not religious leaders as to what's really going on in the world.

Since Obama is President and has been for four plus years, don't you think what ever effect our policies are having on Candada should be directed at Obama?

Some, yes, but certainly not all. You alsop have state legislators that are ruining your education system, by trying to bring religion into science. This does not help students with critical thinking skills, that are needed to develope creative minds that can lead your country into better times.

The GOP continues to argue for lower taxes, when it is verified just through income disparity, that trickle down only works for corporations and the rich.

The GOP hates facts. The hate scientific fact, evolution. They disagree with over 90% of scientists on climate change. They are acting like the catholic church of 600 years ago, stifling scientific progress.

You have for profit priosons, who will lobby against decriminalizing pot, just to make a profit off of people, who may have become productive citizens. We have 2 and a half presidents who have done drugs and have succeeded in life. G.W. Bush, Obama, and Clinton is the half, he did not inhale, lol.

I could go on. There are pleaty of problems in the USA, that is not dirrectly affected by Obama, although he certainly does get some blaim, but it is largely GOP Policy that has been in place for years, that is the downfall of America.

This forum, after all is about a do nothing congress, and right now, it is the republicans holding progress back.
