We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
They have moved past the title of the Stupid Party to rightly be called the Dead Elephant Party.
There was a time when Republicans had a talent for ripping defeat from the jaws of victory. They have gone far beyond even those days. They are useless, incompetent and self-serving dolts. They continue to make themselves irrelevant.
How many more tears from the Cry-baby of the House, Boehner, must we endure before this pathetic drama is finally over?
....and only a stupid dead elephant would want to be like a Democrat.
What did Malcolm Wallop say?...."if the Democrats put forward a bill to burn down the Capitol, the Republicans would cut a deal to phase it in over 5 years." (or something close to that).
If the Republicans would act like fucking Republicans instead of trying to be Democrat-light they might actually get somewhere. Instead they make "contracts with America" or "Pledge"to do the People's business, only to be compromised away when it is expedient to do so.
This is why I'm a Libertarian. I just can't stand idiots like this guy. The question is, "Where can one go to be left alone?". I kind of liked Paul Ryan, but the same folks voted for this other idiot. Cross WI off the list. How's ID? (Don't tell me NH, too many MA's there, and I spent too many year's in MA!)
