I have heard both you and your good cohort jaxxon refer to yourselves as "conservative" when you are trying to gather support for your causes.“Conservative Liberal”,“Liberal Conservative” and “Independent” are they ways you two try to cross all bases. Yet when you want to slam someone it is always “Conservatives” and Republicans”.
I've only noticed a very few conservatives on this thread. Most of you are right wing extremists or what others refer to as "teabaggers" who think you're in the Tea Party - another movement destroyed by the far right signing onto it and destroying the reputation.

There are social conservative/fiscal conservative views. I don't relate to them.

There are fiscal conservative/social moderates. I relate better to them.

There are fiscal conservative/social liberals. I relate best to them.

There are social liberal/fiscal moderates. I relate well with them.

There are social liberal/fiscal liberals. I don't relate well with them.

There are decent Republicans but far fewer than there were a decade ago. I miss them.

There are many more Independents. Some I find to be kindred spirits. Some are more libertarian than my own views.

I relate better to Democrats these days but believe in a balanced approach with compromise where necessary to progress the nation.

You? I don't know what you are, but I think you're an a-hole first and foremost. I don't relate at all to you. Bye!

Ann Coulter Refuses to Board Airplane With Black Pilot

Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter refused to stay on board a Miami to New York commercial airline flight today after learning the pilot was a woman of African-American descent.

According to witness reports Coulter was concerned the experienced, decorated pilot in question may have gained her position as a result of affirmative action and wasn't fully qualified to fly.

I can't repost anything from Snopes (protected content), but you can just google Ann Coulter and Snopes to bring it up.

That's really odd, because I thought Snopes prided themselves on make public inaccurate statements. I guess only if you get the news directly from Snopes, itself, is that true.

US unemployment rises in another indication of weak economy

The US unemployment rate is on the rise again, with 12,3 million Americans with no job even according to the official statistics, bringing the unemployment rate to 7.9 percent.

The unemployment rate rose from 7.8 in December to 7.9 percent in January, leaving 100,000 more Americans unemployed , according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’(BLS) monthly report.

In a news release, the BLS called the new figures “essentially unchanged”– even though unemployment rose despite the fact that 169,000 new Americans dropped out of the labor force in the past month. BLS labels as “not in the labor force”people who have retired on schedule, taken early retirement, or simply given up looking for work.

The report optimistically describes the areas in which new jobs were created, but does not emphasize the areas in which they were lost.

On the topic of mental health and guns, the article below details facts surrounding a 14 year old with "issues" that put others are risk. He has had thoughts of stabbing his family and setting the house on fire. Cuts to Medicaid make it likely that this "at risk" individual will not get the treatment he needs to prevent the kind of tragedy that happened at Sandy Hook. It's a good read that explains the problem well.

We can CUT, CUT, CUT, but we can also create for ourselves a less peaceful society and more dysfunction. It's worth considering how those cuts have serious consequences for all of us:

The risk of skimping on mental health funding

By Alyx Beckwith, Friday, February 1, 7:53 PM

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-ri...

....For mental health providers in North Carolina, 2013 marks another year of cuts to Medicaid reimbursement rates, which have declined steadily since 2008. States are responsible for a larger portion of mental health services than they are for physical services, which means mental health is hit hard by state budget negotiations. More than $4.3&#8201;billion has been slashed from state mental health budgets nationwide since 2009, according to the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors. South Carolina, Alabama, Alaska, Illinois and Nevada are among the states that have had the deepest cuts.(cont.)
