It seems to me I can usually tell a conservative from a liberal just based on looks.(There are exceptions of course, you among them.) But generally speaking, in my admittedly biased view, conservatives come in several visual types:
-the smile/grimace look. These people may have been abused as children, if not sexually, then by being made fun of. They probably deserved it.
-the neckless look. These people resemble low level mafiosos or overweight turtles.
-the overdone-cosmetic look. These are members of the bimbo genus. They think looking like Dolly Parton will give them credibility.(Oddly, Dolly herself does not fit into this Dolly Parton-look category, insofar as she has a functioning brain and is a helluva composer and singer.)
-the where-am-I look. This hollow glazed-over stare is common to the categories described above. They seem to have wandered away from their mother ship.
Liberals, on the other hand, are always intelligent-looking, which makes them look at least as though the motor is running. They are always right (except when they aren't).
that was pretty good, you compose that yourself, or do what I do, plagiarize it? So you're saying that Maxine is intelligent looking? I have found lib women mostly gray frizzy haired, with no makeup, frumpily dressed, with their granny glasses attached by some kind of cord on the back of their head. and unshaven legs.

but it is encouraging to know that you, like I, base opinions on first glances. That's good, you passed that test.

I take full responsibility for my comments, for good or ill.

Your caricature is also somewhat amusing. But intelligence does not require lipstick, mini-skirts, empty stares, or cosmetic surgery.(Nancy Pelosi might be the rare exception.)
Looking intelligent requires the absence of a "nobody home" affect. Maxine Waters fits right in, as do many other women who don't obsess with looking like Playboy bunnies. Not that Playboy bunnies don't serve a purpose.

First, let us remember that the Washington Post is a BANKSTER Controlled tabloid.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years... It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years."

David Rockefeller 1991

Second, the Government SHUT-DOWN was caused by the
INTRANSIGENCE of the MSM selected President over "Obamacare". If individuals were granted the same rights of Corporations and Congress regarding this FASCIST bill, then the shutdown would not have occured. A one-year delay was a proper compromise.

The Republican shutdown cost America $28 billion.

Let the GOP scrounge up the $28 billion they owe
and we can start over again.

All Boehner had to do to avoid the shutdown
was to let his fellow Republicans in the House
have a straight up and down vote on the Continuing
Resolution. A clean vote.

He wouldn't allow it.
The rest is history.

Nuff said.

$28 billion? If you say so. No problem, let's just raise the debt an extra $50 billion and call it even.

The ISSUE was Obamacare. Obamacare was the point of contention; the flashpoint.

Obamacare will Continue to be a battleground with the outcome uncertain.

Yes, you are correct, if Boehner had allowed a vote, a shutdown would have been avoided. Point well taken.

But, it is ALSO true, that had Obama agreed to a one-year delay in enforcement of the individual mandate there would have been no shutdown.

The GOP was right.
Obamacare is a bungled bill held together with chicken wire and duct tape.
It's not up to par. Especially when our children's health is at stake.
Obama has insulted himself and his ilk.
The GOP can just stand back and laugh their heads off at him and Sibelius.
It's a huge blow to the women's movement also, which is a shame.
Next time choose a Republican woman to get things done right.
I'm not joking people.
The bill is a FIASCO. Passed before it was ever read. The Republicans were right to fight it.

It's not a bill. It's law.

McCain: Attempt to defund Obamacare was 'fool's errand'(by fools)

President Obama: Try winning an election.
