Re: Time to call their bluff

All the people answering those polls vote. Everything is worse since Obama got elected unless you are a government employee. 2010 will be a Democratic rout, sanity will from that point on begin to take root. :shock: Sanity? Billy, have you looked at who's running the Republican Party these days? Th...

Re: Time to call their bluff

I'm sure they thought they'd be able to change 16% of the economy to their liking without having to answer any questions about what they were doing. Here we go again... "The Government wants to take over health care!!!" If we're gonna get the same ol' crap, can we at least get scary ghost...

Re: Time to call their bluff

According to a November Rasmussen poll support for the healthcare bill is at 42%. Rasmussen polling has a long history of being more "conservative-friendly" in terms of their question wording (push-polling). They're accurate, but the results of their polling has been consistently and sign...

Re: Time to call their bluff

Billy....You missed my point.History tells us the GOP will gain seats in 2010 if they don't do anything too stupid,like filibuster healthcare reform to pander to their base (20%) while the majority (80%) want healthcare reform.As long as they tweak the base and use the weak minded and uninformed to...

Re: 10-Year-Old Won't Pledge Allegiance...

Let me see if I can follow Billy's logic here... If a child espouses conservative viewpoints (such as the 5 and 6 year-olds who attended Tea Parties with neatly hand-lettered signs begging Obama not to take their piggy banks) they are exercising independent thought. However, if a child espouses libe...

Lou Dobbs Quits

Effective immediately Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, said Wednesday that he is leaving the cable news channel effective immediately. Sitting before an image of an American flag on his television set, he said “some leaders in media, ...

Re: Breaking News: Shootings at Fort Hood

I think (and I'm probably guilty of this as well) that we're missing the forest for the trees. It's becoming much clearer that this particular officer was very cracked...and had been cracked for a long time. Well before the first inklings of his sympathies towards fundamentalist Islam. It's easy to ...

Re: Breaking News: Shootings at Fort Hood

In my opinion his belief in the death glorification cult known as Islam was a major factor in his actions. I Billy, I am not a violent person. But if you said that in my presence, the next thing you would see is my fist before it connected with your nose. Because it is ignorant wastes of carbon-bas...

Re: Breaking News: Shootings at Fort Hood

I've given up on local coverage of this - they're letting every nutball post comments blaming Obama for letting this "raghead" stay in the service, wanting every Muslim rounded up and sent to Gitmo (or just shot on sight), and basically making me wonder what the hell happened to people aro...

Tell me Billy - has Olbermann injected politics into his sports commentary. Not oblique, it could be read either way, references. I mean direct and clear injection of politics.

There's an episode of Star Trek that will really help people follow the Republicans' "reasoning" regarding lying. I bet most of us know which episode I mean. I know Doomed does! -Marie- Kirk: "Everything Harry tells you is a lie – remember that! Everything Harry tells you is a lie!&q...

Re: Countdown 6/30/09

Very strong language from Keith on the President's reluctance to do anything about DADT. "He's goddamn wrong" indeed.
