      I do not trust the tea party that much, to blindly  head to the far Right just because of Idiots like Dean, so no in my case.

      The TEA Party remind's me off a modern version of the Old Joh Burch Society.. And I can see through the political ploy here.
      more mis information and hate being spread. Like a Cancer you cant get rid of I think.

      Mr. Mason, I didn't read your article, but I agree with the quote. The members of the tea party I have met are dangerous, religious and bigoted. They lack compassion and are selfish and self centered in their politics.

    And Dean is right...12% of the population does not get to Lord it over all the rest....no matter how much $$ they have and how many judges they "own".

    The judges are the crucial thing, according to Thom Hartmann. He says the next president will most likely choose the next SC Justice.
    If Obama is pres---he will choose one who will overturn Citizens United.
    If it's  Republican--he/she will choose one who will overturn Roe v Wade.--and this includes Ron Paul.

        and Soros is angwy at Obama...ohhhhhh, the progressives don't like Obama.....does that mean they are with Fox News? Or are there right-wing progressives and left-wing progressives.....? Or are all progressives the same?

        From that same site, The Blaze!!:

        "billionaire George Soros may be encouraging his fellow progressives to funnel their money away from President Barack Obama — that is, unless Obama can deliver for their cause.

        During a small, “private” meeting of the Democracy Alliance Tuesday afternoon, Soros reportedly told the well-funded, progressive-minded crowd that the Obama administration might not be their best investment:

        According to multiple sources with knowledge of his remarks, Soros told those in attendance that he is “used to fighting losing battles but doesn’t like to lose without fighting.”

        “We have just lost this election, we need to draw a line,” he said, according to several Democratic sources. “And if this president can’t do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else."

        Hmmmm, and Netroots is mad at him too....

        Well, what does this mean?

        We KNOW Fox is anti-Obama, but Soros too?

      Actually the only people I consider, "Leant Leftists", are the ones I explained about yesterday.

      If you had read my posts you would know that I do not consider all I dis-agree with as Leant Leftists, and that the only people I consider Leant Leftists are any from the Progressives, to the left of the political spectrum from there.

      Pretty simple Rebek.

      And Rolling Stone is and has always been a leftist rag which has no intellectual value. They ought to have been ashamed of themselves for setting up  the General. But no they are heroes in the eyes of the Left. You can keep 'em. Most other News agencies would be "Right" compared to Rolling Stone.

      And I wouldn't imagine they would seem Progressive/Centrist to someone steeped in the Left, but to us true Conservatives, we can see the truth, and we know they are there to lure the Right to the Center. "Compromise" is their battle cry... and "NO COMPROMISE" is ours. And we will not compromise anymore with the Leftists, they have always got their way and we are done with it.

      It is the way of the game the Leftists/Progressives have been playing for for a century. They write both sides of the script, play both sides of the field... and point at one another to get us to pick one side or the other, which are both the same side in reality.... and America sees it these days, we know what they are all about.

        rebekahELLEposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        I do read some of your posts, and yet they basically say the same thing. You say, no compromise? I don't get that. Life is compromise. Policies have to change over time. We're not the same country as our founding fathers found, nor should we be. Those attempting to take us back over 200 years are lost in the past.

        I and many others don't consider it a rag, it leans to the left, but doesn't fail to criticize the left either. Have you read their articles?
        The article about the General.. so who else would have written it?
        Why do we think our Generals are without excuse? It was good to see him replaced. War is fatiguing. He had lost vision.

          All he had done was critisize Obama. And yes I have read Rolling Stone on many occassions. Spin it however you want, they are set-up artists, like you all claim Andrew Brietbart is.

          And the Constitution is our founding document and will not be replaced, no matter how bad the left wants to tear it up. And it is the greatest document of social contracts ever penned, and is quite capable and perfectly exceptable for todays world.

          And yes war is fatiguing, and to set up a General who has sreved his entire career with distinction, and then claim he deserved it because he was tired, fitigued, and "lost vision", is absurd.

      Palin didn't get the Gov-ship of Alaska from the Progressives without playing thier game. And we are not giong to play it anymore. And I have said over and over she is a plant, and playing her own games. She knows the money is in running interferance for the Right-wing, so she is doing it.

      I am not one who thinks she is a Conservative. I believe she might become one if she thinks it will work better for her, but not one in truth.

      Carl Rove, is a Progressive like Bush.

      And Ted Nugent is a guest, on Progressive Huckabee's show, nothing more.


      And Hannity is a flip flopper, claiming to be Conservative, and supporting Progressives. So take a guess what he is.. alot of Progressives claim to be Conservative, and they are as compared to the leftists further over, but not in truth.

      O'rielly is a centrist, who is slowly leaning a lil more Right all the time, becuase he actually looks at what Beck says and cannot deny it. So it is working its way into his understanding. But stii he has an issue accepting it.

      And all the commies and Socialists the American Left is tied to and you think we care what you all think of us... huh yeah right. American Leant leftist Commie lovers is what the Left has been and now they are seen for it.

    I am going Obama. The more I think this out, study facts not hype, I think I am correct. My Grandparents built the Bridges in this country, they cam from Europe, made a middle class.

    I remember being in a working class Union family all my days in Providence R.I. and to deny that is nuts. We were not rich but we had life and place and purpose.

    The GOP has systematicaly destroyed jobs, wages, markets all in the name of Capitalists Survival, with stock market rape and run ideals. and Job Give aways for some promise of return from some underhanded Overseas deals. We have been sold off!

    Unions gave us the 40 hour work week, no child labor, and fair wage for fair work.

    As for Middle East?  The real desire in the Mid East is Equality, noting about American style Goverment. I have seen that openly and in person. and The US does not want it at all. They are interfearing with it in covert ways, for the Oil and Bank dollar trade.

      Fortunately, their plans to sell off the NHS have met with rather more resistance than they expected and caused them to back pedal frantically.
      I'm not quite so hopeful for Royal Mail, there are too many richard heads around who say "who needs Royal Mail, we've got the internet" Fat lot of use that is for deliveries! We've also suffered with governments passing off more profitable aspects of the business to private companies.

      Funny, I have not seen any benefit from any previous privatisations, in fact just the opposite. I pay much more for gas and electricity, deregulated public transport is no longer a cheap option, it's more like an expensive luxury, though not very luxurious! Talking about public transport, now our railways are part owned by the German state railways, that amuses me greatly.
      It great, all these public services sold into private hands, but guess who picks up the bill for all the unemployed? Why we, the tax payers do.

        Yeah--and who makes a profit?
        It happened in Argentina in the 90's, and the global industrialists, IMF, HW Bush et al, had their hands all over it.

        That is why they don't like Chavez, because he would not succumb to them. And the president of Bolivia...although I don't know the current situation with them....

        And Uninvited Writer said the same thing once about Canada...privitizing only causes costs to go up.

        Not only that...they just don't CARE about people! The only thing they see is money....How to get more of it.No matter WHAT the cost.

        They need a reality check. And so do we.
