Is it just me, or is anyone else fed up with the pathetic display of governing that we have witnessed over the last week? Democrat, Republican, or Tea Party, what we have seen is pathetic! Whatever your political standing, to put political positioning, ideology, or any other motive above the welfare of your country or fellow citizens, to me, is close to treason! Your thoughts?
You are not alone.These reps can't do the right thing for the citizens because the corporations that purchased their souls will cut them off if they vote wrong.
Yeah! I think it's ridiculous the way that Lincoln intentionally positioned the South at Fort Sumter to attack first during the War Between the States!!
... wait, what are we talking about?
Oh. THE EXACT SAME THING.
clowns. clowns. Of course, just as an aside, the government takes in enough monthly to "not default on loans." This has actually never been a problem depending where the government puts is money.
The real issue is a downgrading of the US credit which will make things more costly. This could happen even if an agreement is reached.
Lastly, Aug 2 is no longer the drop dead date. It seems we most likely have funds to last through Aug 10.
Truly, rhetoric has reached a new low with this administration. My solution?
Let's brick em in until they get the job done.
Mostly, political positioning, ideology or other motives will show the way to get top govt. position and rule the people. Then they will look after the welfare of their country and their fellow citizens. Without political positions, ideology and motives, no government can be effective. It is like planning for the eternal welfare of citizens.
Just to look after their welfare of citizens is like feeding for a day only. To look after welfare of the country, its government will work towards that goal, based on some ideology.
They weren't really worried about default, they were mostly concerned about their reelection. Let's give them something to worry about and vote the morons out.
Sure, you COULD vote for the least moronic...
Or you could fight for the best candidate.
Ron Paul 2012.
Ron Paul has:
Never voted to raise taxes;
never voted for an unbalanced budget;
never taken a government paid junket;
never voted to increase the power of the executive branch;
voted against the War in Iraq;
voted against the Patriot Act;
Refused to participate in the lucrative government pension program
been predicting and explaining the housing market bust since 2003;
returned a portion of his congressional operating budget to the US Treasury each year;
demanded transparency to the Federal Reserve;
taught countless Americans about the Constitution and sound money;
delivered over 4,000 babies;
never turned down a patient due to inability to pay for medical help;
earned veteran status for being a doctor during the Vietnam (offensive) war.
And the list goes on!
Ron Paul has integrity but he is a misguided, Minniver Cheevy who yearns for past days that can never return.
Miniver Cheevy, child of scorn,
Grew lean while he assailed the seasons;
He wept that he was ever born,
And he had reasons.
Miniver loved the days of old
When swords were bright and steeds were prancing;
The vision of a warrior bold
Would set him dancing.
Miniver sighed for what was not,
And dreamed, and rested from his labors;
He dreamed of Thebes and Camelot,
And Priam's neighbors.
Minever mourned the ripe renown
That made so many a name so fragrant;
He mourned Romance, now on the town,
And Art, a vagrant.
Minever loved the Medici,
Albeit he had never seen one;
He would have sinned incessantly
Could he have been one.
Miniver cursed the commonplace
And eyed a khaki suit with loathing;
He missed the mediæval grace
Of iron clothing.
Miniver scorned the gold he sought,
But sore annoyed was he without it;
Miniver thought, and thought, and thought,
And thought about it.
Miniver Cheevy, born too late,
Scratched his head and kept on thinking;
Miniver coughed, and called it fate,
And kept on drinking.

The controversy over birthright citizenship, (aka `Anchor babies`), seems to one of interpretation.Specifically, the 2nd hurdle to citizenship the 14th Amendment included; that the mother must be; "...subject to the jurisdiction of the United States." It appears that there are two...

This is a continuation of a conversation from another thread, which morphed into a discussion about political ideology:One of the main lessons we have learned about ideology, a lesson which draws on evidence from throughout history, is that 1) a single ideology is seldom ideal for every condition...

Do you know what entities make up our government?Can you name the entities that the GOP wants to cut? Do you know who they would be Privatized to if they can cut them? Social Security is one entity. Would they still want workers to pay into the SS fund? Who would the funds go to. ...

It's occurred to me that the political forums here are beginning to sound a lot like the religion forums.My side is so right and your side is so wrong. Never the twain shall meet in the middle.So if you agree there's an analogy here, would you describe yourself as politically on the Christian...

I watched Piers Morgan's show twice, once with Alex Jones as his guest and then again with Ben Shapiro as his guest. Both of these people believe that is necessary for citizens to have high capacity assault weapons, like AR15's to protect themselves from the eventual tyranny of their own...
