completely illogical "logic"

Right-Wing Pundit Phyllis Schlafly Decries Government Assistance For ‘Unmarried Moms’
(Think Progress)
Read the article for her entire "argument" - none of it makes any sense and is based on illogical and completely false premises.
These scumbags truly hate anyone who is in need.

funny way of showing it

cuz we did so well in Iraq

no kidding

and still more bigotry from the right

getting more and more ridiculous

O'Reilly making sense!

O’Reilly: Obama should ‘sign the executive order’ ending DADT, ‘it’s just not fair, we should stop this nonsense.’
(Think Progress)
Man, who would ever have thought that Obama should listen to O'Reilly?!

"funny" how that works

because it is just a stupid talking point the Bachmann has never thought through

And if people really realized what she was proposing and actually thought about it, they would be horrified.

I'm sure their repug friends will come to their rescue

are these people so uneducated that they don't realize that the Constitution is already taught in school?

Rep. Wamp Suggests Secession If Voters Reject Right Wing Views On Constitution
(Think Progress)
Man, as much as the bush administration destroyed everything this country stands for, I didn't think about seceding - leaving the country, yes, but not secession.

The repugs are truly anti-American, aren't they?

Gawd forbid they have any real solutions to any of the issues facing this country...

Tancredo echoes GOP Congressman, calls for Obama’s impeachment over immigration.
(Think Progress)
Can you imagine the crucifixion Dems would have gone through if they used a fraction of this kind of rhetoric on bush - though he deserved it far more? No one would have dared! But the wimpy Dems don't even call these loons on this absurdity...

seriously - do the repugs have ANY other ideas?

The ONLY thing that repugs seem to be for are tax cuts for the rich. Do they have ANY other ideas?

unfortunately, too many Dems are wimps so that we won't get this common sense solution

Dems fail again

Climate Bill: Senate Democrats Abandon Comprehensive Energy Bill
(Huffington Post)
Y'know, the Dems really haven't done much since coming into power, other than proving that they are spineless wimps compared to the repugs, who are STILL running things, even though they are not technically in pwoer.

I really don't blame anyone for not voting for the average Dem, but, unfortunately, the only alternative is the f'k'ing repugs, and we know how that worked out for the country for 8 years.

I wish we had a viable 3rd party, or at least a group of Dems who would actually accomplish something.

sounds like a perfect match

sick bastards

Wow - that's some sign of "empathy" - not knowing if you own brothers are working and voting against giving them unemployment benefits!

I guess to him empathy means being a heartless, cruel bastard who won't give you the time of day....

repugs continue to be obstructionist assholes

Republicans delay vote on jobless benefits
I hope that everyone remembers this at election time!

this is what happens when you listen to right-wing nut-jobs instead of getting the facts

as usual, this is watered down, but at least a good first step

good for her!

Sharon Angle is hoping that the truly stupid vote for her

Her latest commercial is try to create a correlation between Harry Reid's term in office with the current high unemployment rate in Nevada - as if bush's destruction of the world-wide economy had nothing to do with it! Or the fact that the repugs have stymied any major stimulus, other than the package that has kept this country for entering a full-fledged depression.

Yet, she has also said that if she wins, it would not be her duty to create jobs - though, apparently, if it Reid fault that we lost them!

all the repugs have is tax cuts for the rich

WTF is wrong with these bigots?

I can't believe it's not a bigger lead

Polls: Harry Reid grabs lead over Sharron Angle
Who in their right mind would vote for Angle? It's not like Reid has a sane opponent. I don't think he's done a great job, but at least he exists in our shared reality, unlike Angle...

I certainly hope that these people are prosecuting to the fullest extent

Utah identifies 2 allegedly behind immigrant list

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah officials said Friday they have identified at least two state workers who apparently accessed confidential documents to create a list of 1,300 purported illegal immigrants that was mailed to law enforcement officials and the news media.

Gov. Gary Herbert said the employees work for the Department of Workforce Services, which administers food stamp programs and other public benefits. The employees have been placed on administrative leave.
The Utah attorney general's office also will investigate and decide whether to file charges.

Intentionally releasing a private record in Utah is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. If someone stole such a record, it could be prosecuted as a felony with a penalty punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Herbert said accessing the list and distributing to federal immigration authorities could also be a violation of federal law.

The list contains Social Security numbers, birth dates, workplaces, addresses and phone numbers. Names of children are included, along with due dates of pregnant women.

Cox said most of the people on the list are there because their children are receiving

What a scary violation of personal information! I don't care what reasons the people had - this needs to be prosecuted.

thanks, repugs

I hope that these people remember this when it's time to vote and the remember that the repugs blocked this and the Dems tried to pass it. Of course the repugs will say that the Dems were in charge so they should have been able to pass it so you shoudl vote for the repugs, even though they didn't want it at all...and some morons will fall for this...

Billboard linking Obama, Hitler draws complaints

DES MOINES, Iowa – A billboard created by an Iowa tea party group that compares President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and Vladimir Lenin is drawing sharp criticism — even from fellow tea party activists who have condemned it as offensive and a waste of money.

The North Iowa Tea Party began displaying the billboard in downtown Mason City last week. The sign shows large photographs of Obama, Nazi leader Hitler and communist leader Lenin beneath the labels "Democrat Socialism," "National Socialism," and "Marxist Socialism."

Beneath the photos is the phrase, "Radical leaders prey on the fearful & naive."

The co-founder of the roughly 200-person group said the billboard was intended to send an anti-socialist message. But Bob Johnson admitted Tuesday that the message may have gotten lost amid the images of fascist and communist leaders.

"The purpose of the billboard was to draw attention to the socialism. It seems to have been lost in the visuals," Johnson said. "The pictures overwhelmed the message. The message is socialism." He said he didn't know of any plans to remove the sign.

Do these nutjobs really think that comparing Obama - a center-right president who has continually bent over backwards to appease the repugs in the vain hopes of some kind of bipartisanship, and who has pissed off his base constantly with these ridiculous moves - to mass- murdering dictators who have taken over their countries allowing no dissent of any kind is going to further their cause? I honestly wonder what they think the comparisons are, though I assume that they are just trying to be provocative and they know that Obama has nothing whatsoever in common with any sort of dictator.

Just how insane are these people?

Half of Americans oppose Obama's immigration lawsuit: poll

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Half of Americans reject President Barack Obama's lawsuit against Arizona's controversial immigration law, with only a third supporting the move, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

With key midterm elections just around the corner in November, the Obama administration is facing strong support for the law, which makes it a crime to be in the state -- bordering Mexico -- without proper immigration papers.
It noted that those who followed news about the law most closely were most likely to oppose it.

I find the last line above indicative of American politics in general...

GOP chairman: Afghan 'war of Obama's choosing'
Do these clowns really think that we have already forgotten that bush got us into all of the messes that we are currently trying to clean up - even including deregulating the oil companies so much that we have the current BP disaster. But, trying to blame the Afghanistan was on Obama?! Man, ballsy...

doesn't surprise me since the repugs are doing everything in their power to cause this to happen

I sure hope no one is seriously thinking about this!

Should BP nuke its leaking oil well?
I thought this was a bad analogy at first, but this has actually been brought up!
Nah, I can't see any problem with this at all!
