That's the liberal way odie.  Where I live in a senior retirement communit, there are a couple of liberal ladies who just adore the Obama's.  Now they admire Hillary.  Well 95% of the residents are liberal democrats.  Even after we elected a Republican governor.

 

 

 

 

Politicians are the lowest form of life; liberal Democratic politicians are the lowest form of politician.  General Patton.

Here's one that is making the rounds on Facebook

 

The Case of the Dark Dilemma

 

"Now let me see if I have this right. The family situation is so unstable, 'Junior' doesn't even know where to send a Father's Day card. There's no guidance or discipline in the home. Junior gets dumped into the education system where he is socially promoted because the overwhelmed school district can't deal with the undisciplined whelp. Junior's major formative influences are 'gangsta' rap videos and a corresponding peer group of 'gangsta' wannabes.

 

At age 18, Junior is turned loose on society carrying a bad attitude, a broken compass and little respect for authority. Junior gets himself in big trouble with the law and meets dire consequences. Then, the situational diagnosis is that the police need more training and understanding?

 

Pardon me for asking, but do you really believe that?"

True that.

 

I guess the part about me not having a problem with it stems from his clear involvement in 9-11 and in the Ft. Hood shootings, both, but there is still no reason he should not have been first tried and sentenced to death. 

 

But at least no one was listening to his phone calls without a warrant, right?  Pffft.

Really?

 

What impact did he expect his race-baiting rhetoric to have?


Naturally, CNN was quick to point out the victims were Hispanic and Asian, and the shooting had nothing to do with race...

No problem other than I haven't learned how to read your mind yet.

 

However I dare say the person who posted a defense of Al Sharpton in post 12,269 may take exception with your assertion that I a "preaching to the choir".

On which point of the three I have made since you last posted:

 

1. Your harping on Tea Party nonsense (post 12,422)

 

2. Al Sharpton's culpability for the assassination of two cops in NY (post 12,426)

 

3. Drones killing an American citizen without due process (post 12,427)

 

As for "preaching to the choir", any person including you has the option to skip what doesn't interest them.

I'll take your word for it....  I already get more than enough junk mail, I'm not voulentarily signing up for any more.

 

I guess it comes down to watching what the individual candidates say and do.

 

Just like the establishment wing, some I like and some I don't.

Not at all but that is not what I have been posting. I suggest you subscribe to their email feed, it's not difficult since I did it inadvertently, and see the rubbish they spew.

 Thank you.  I forgot about that, but, for the record, while it's a organization, it is not an "official" party....

 

However, you said:  "I said they were nuts right from the start"

 

From the site you provided:

 

Core Beliefs

1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

 

Those don't seem to be "nutty" ideas to me...  do they to you?
