GOP hopes class of black Republicans is trend

What's racist is the statement that a Black American who happens to make something of themselves and has a conservative viewpoint is a mascot.  (Nov 30, 2014 | post #10)

You said the poster lied when he said that Obama used illicit drugs. Then you went on a rant about how conservative lie about the president, referencing the drugs that GWB used. It was a logical leap that you were inferring that you didn't believe that Obama used illicit drugs. Now understand I'm not saying that GWB DIDN'T use drugs or that he is not a recovering alcoholic. I was just trying to help you out It's what I do...  (Nov 10, 2014 | post #355)

Obama to send 1,500 more troops to Iraq as campaign expands

This is what's wrong... you need to catch up with the 21st century. We don't have a draft anymore- haven't had one in almost 50 years. And no- I care nothing for the enemy that are killed. Do I feel bad for civilian casualties, sure, but there would less of them if the we were allowed to win once in a while. THATS what I consider a dumb war, a war where you tie the hands of the professionals fighting it. And you can't read- I didn't say any war was heroic, I said the men and women who voluteer to do a job that you won't/can't do are deserving of being honored, just for the wilingness to volunteer. And no one is whining or crying- except you. You are correct you have the right the to speak your mind. Speak away, When you're done, take a moment and thank a military member that you still have that right, for at the end of the day, if no one had died for it you wouldn't have it as you know it today And you know you read the Salon article...  (Nov 10, 2014 | post #58)

Takeover: Republicans surge to control of Senate

Bro, are you serious? You asked to see the legislation that the Republicans had put forth reducing the Corporate tax rate. I asked didn't you think that there was one collecting dust on Harry Reid's desk. You then harped on me to prove it. I got my information from the Congressional Research Office, so I have done my part. No don't take my word for it. Go look at all 202 bills yourself. There's a reason why I don't have 28,000 comments on Topix...  (Nov 10, 2014 | post #74)

Obama to send 1,500 more troops to Iraq as campaign expands

You probably have a point about dumb wars, but the people who fight them don't pick the battlefields- politicians do. I think you would be hard pressed to find a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine or Coast Guardsman who would consider themselves or quantify what they have done in the last 13 years as heroes or heroic. Even those that have earned the highest honor our country can honor them with have one thing that you don't- humility. The honor and the 'heroic' thing that they do is volunteer to do a job that you can't or won't. They don't do it for the government, or wrap themselves in the flag, or perform for mom, baseball and apple pie. They do it for their buddy on their left and right. In the heat of the battle the last thing on a Soldiers mind is politics. The first thing is the wefare of his brothers/sisters in arms. You don't want to call them heroes, fine- go read Salon and wallow in the percieved morale highground. Meanwhile there's a real job that needs to be done- And we'll do it for you, despite your hollow shell of being.  (Nov 10, 2014 | post #55)

Technically, Bush's war in Iraq, Operation Iraqi Freedom, ended in 2011. This is new engagement, Operation Inherent Resolve, is wholly owned by Obama. Even got a new campaign medal and everything.  (Nov 9, 2014 | post #32)

Takeover: Republicans surge to control of Senate

And you continue to be lazy and blinded by hate. But, I will do your information gathering for you this time. Currently there are 202 bills that have passed the House of Representatives, dealing ins some way with the corporate tax rate, some dating back to 2009. but you really need to look no further than the House and Senate budget resolutions, H.Con.Res. 25 and S.Con.Res. 8 (which never get passed because for some reason we have gotten away from appropriations in favor of continuing resolutions) which in 2013 both contained major Tax reform for both individuals and corporations. Collecting dust...  (Nov 9, 2014 | post #72)

GOP in charge, eager to move on Keystone XL, taxes

Again, see above, but I'm not sure that you could find a case in ND where someone's land value is being undercut, or they're being intimidated. I found one story invoving an Indian Reservation and it's a pretty big deal, but it's a discussion for another thread. It's pretty murky and BLUF: there is no real government oversight on Indian Reservations, records aren't public so we'll have to see how it turns out. I couldn't find anything else. By and large people are being fairly compensated for the use or purchase of their land.  (Nov 7, 2014 | post #35)

You don't think land owners will be compensated if some of their land is needed? People are walking up to land owners in ND and writing them checks for mineral rights, roads, etc. What makes you think a pipline company wouldn't do the same? Oh, and define a 'pipeline catastrophy' would you please? The last time the line on the Slope burst, and caused a lot of damage, it was done by environmentalists, it didn't magically give out...  (Nov 7, 2014 | post #34)
