You need to compare the intelligence, wisdom and knowledge of Tea Party guy Ted Cruz, for instance,  to that of Obam... He makes obam look like the fool that he is.

Leo,

 

Re: The GOP

When you know you cannot win elections on your ideas.....and refuse to explore new ideas because you are afraid of a small band of radical ideologues.....you stop having ideas....and have to resort to dirty tricks in order to try to win.

 

Redistricting was designed to waste as many Democratic votes as possible, which has resulted in GOP candidates to be safe and unanswerable to the general voting population.  The candidates from heavy Republican districts can act as ignorant and destructive as they please and not risk losing their jobs.  But I think people are finally waking up to how Republicans govern.  It is unfortunate, because I think our republic functions better with a two-party system.....but these folks make the Republicans look really bad! 

 

The only thing I differ with you on, is that the Voter ID laws are "veiled heavily".  I would say poorly veiled is more precise.  These laws are a very clear and obvious attempt to supress the vote.  It's a contemptable trick!  Supressing the vote is antithetical to everything this country stands for, not to mention the many, many who died for the right to vote.

I'm under the impression that this voter ID, and redistricting is the Republican answer to concentrating the voting pool to a level geared to help insure tipping the balance to their side to win elections. Veiled heavily as the grey area of voter ID fraud; these tactics alienate the unsuspecting minority,and some older members of the black community. Documentation is still problematic with some births, even though legislation has confirmed these cultures as legitimately legal in the U.S.

Quoting wwww12345:

Pardon me, but has anyone suggested that you can't buy the pills yourself, or any other form of birth control?   Have they?
And, if you will check around I think you will find that almost all Republicians believe in birth control, unless their church is against it, and the church don't care what party you belong to, does it?


btw I don't believe the little blue pills are covered under insurance..  Maybe if you are a union member and obam supporter.However, I do think most of the major insurance companies cover birth control pills.

So, let me ask this question.  Are you a person that will willing to ruin this country economically by voting for a bunch of libatards that will provide you with free birth control pills, meanwhile they cause your insurance to increase by thousands of dollars..  Sounds dumb to me. Buy the pills yourself if necessary or keep your legs closed.



WWWW~

Oh me Oh my!!  Lololol.   I can hardly believe you said that!  Telling women to keep their legs closed doesn’t work….never has since the beginning of time!!!  And NOW…..since the invention of the little blue pill there must be at least 4 times as many men running around trying to get women to open them up.  In fact, men's appetite may be a primary contributing force in so many unplanned pregnancies.

 

In my humble opinion….I think it would only be fair if men had to pay 30% more for their health insurance in order to pay for the smile they have on their faces…..way past what their chronological age should permit!  *wink* :))

 

Re: the cost of insurance.  It's more cost effective for insurance companies to provide birth control than it is to pay for pre-natal care, hospital costs for the birth, after care......and then of course another mouth for the planet to feed and provide resources for.  So stop grumbling WWWW.

 

Fyi....it doesn't help to tell men to keep their pants zipped up either!  Humans tend to like sex.

Pardon me, do men have to pay for their little blue pills?  Or is THAT covered under insurance?  Customers have ballooned and I don't hear anyone squawking when it comes to men's sex.

 

Birth control is fundamentally the most important women's issue!  It should be a human issue given the planet's population.  But if a woman cannot control when or how many babies she has....it is directly related to not only her physical health but her economic health.  Any woman that would vote for a Republican needs to go buy herself a prairie dress and then have her head examined.

WWWW,

The ACA hasn't even started yet!  The Tea Party??  Right about what?  Do they have any ideas?  As far as I can tell, they are a small group of spectators up in the stands that don't want to do anything except stop the game.  They aren't smart enough to play the game....they just want to blow things up in order to destroy not only the game, but the entire playing field!  A bunch of cynical know-nothings.... that think Sarah Palin is smart!

Quoting Diana3316:

While we're talking about constitutionally protected 'Rights'.....how about the right to vote???  Are voter ID cards an effective tool in the prevention of voter fraud?  Isn't that a type of background check?  If voter ID cards help to prevent fraud, then it stands to reason that comprehensive background checks in order to purchase a gun would help to prevent some unlawful gun purchases.

 

Interestingly, I've never heard of anyone getting killed by someone casting a vote....yet we got voter ID laws passed in just a couple of weeks.


No, voter ID cards are not a background check. You can be insane as a libatard and still vote.. Unfortunately.

No one should be allowed to vote unless they are citizens and can prove it. You can spin it how you wish but that is the bottom line..  To allow just anyone to vote would be absurd..

Hmmm….don’t mention the great state of Texas to women right now.  Women and the Texas GOP are basically at war!  The new voter ID law that was passed to thwart the virtually non-existent voter fraud problem in Texas is effectively inhibiting some women from voting in the current early voting election.   It’s been in recent newspapers…..stories of women who have been voting for years being required to sign an avadavat at the polling place attesting to who they are, vote with a provisional ballot and then have 6 days to produce original documentation of either their birth certificate, divorce decree or perhaps their marriage license…whatever might have precipitated their name change in the event their voter ID and their voter registration are not identical.  And then the election board has the option of whether or not they will count the vote....even after she has produced the required documentation.  This whole kerfuffle will likely encourage many young women not to change their name after marriage in the future. 

 

One last point:  When I say voter fraud is virtually non-existent in Texas….it’s true.  Since 2004, three-term Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) has pursued exactly 66 cases of voter irregularity…..of which only 4 cases involved someone illegally casting a ballot at a polling place where a picture ID would have prevented the fraud.   Some may say….that’s just the cases he was able to identify.  Oh spare me!!  If true.....then he must be really bad at his job!

Over the last couple of years, the Republican Party has seemed determined to push women voters away.  The "war on women" -- which included restrictions on reproductive rights, targeting Planned Parenthood, opposing pay equity laws, voting against the Violence Against Women Act, forcing women to undergo medically unnecessary exams, etc., etc. has cost GOP candidates dearly.

 

After last year's elections, party leaders recognized the problem and said they would be careful not to repeat the same mistakes. But, apparently Republicans have learned nothing!!  When I said they are “really slow learners”…. that may have been too kind.

 

In the middle of the night on Saturday, House Republicans slid a rule into a bill to fund the government that would allow employers to deny their employees insurance coverage for contraception on moral grounds.  The so-called "conscience clause," is the same proposal Republicans have trotted out again and again during the health care debate.  It's almost certain not to become law, but the symbolic attempt alone is a clear reminder of where the party still is on reproductive health.

 

I'd love to meet the House GOP genius who thought in the middle of a budget crisis and creating a government shutdown, that this is the perfect time to remind Americans which party is also against contraception access.

 

Once again House Republicans have found a way to mount an ideological attack on women's health as the clock ticks down on a crisis they created!!

 

Proceed GOP…….please, please….proceed!

Well, well, well.  The House voted for the 40th time on Friday to repeal President Barack Obama's health care reform law before heading home for a five week recess.  The GOP-controlled House voted to approve a measure to prevent the IRS from enforcing "Obamacare". 

 

Every single House Republican voted for the repeal.  We're talking about some really slow learners!!  It’s not just that they reinforce the impression that they're not a serious governing party….. it’s that they're becoming rather pathetic.

 

Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman noted, “The madness of the GOP is the central issue of our time."

 

Congress has an enormous amount of work that needs to be done!  The House is supposed to have been working on appropriations bills, the farm bill, negotiating a budget, and hopefully, avoiding another debt-ceiling crisis in the fall. 

 

GOP lawmakers have wasted months championing culture-war bills they know can't pass and obsessing over discredited "scandals".   I guess they must think it’s fun to vote 40 times to take away Americans health care benefits rather than work on managing the country.

 

It's as if Americans elected children to control half of the legislative branch of government!!

Quoting Dakota35:

I'll have to disagree.  As all one has to do is look at the writers of the US Constitution and their association with the Revolutionary war.   Which would have directly influenced their writing of the constitution.   The taxing of the 13 colonies by England was seen to be excessive and destructive to the people. Thus the people rose up against England to form America. Now don't tell me, they totally overlooked the whole war with mother England.  I'm sure England viewed the uprising of the colonies as treason, while the colonies viewed their fight as the gaining of their independence.  America was created on the Right to bear arms.  Thus the "founding fathers" being of good intelligence thought to the future and realize that one day the US could become the  England of their time.  So they reasoned that the people would need a way to once again gain their rights and independence.



Hmmm….history does not support your premise Dak. Please study the Whiskey Rebellion. There are also other instances where the United States Federal Government put down insurrection.

 

Source Wikipedia:

 

A new U. S. federal government began operating in 1789, following the ratification of the United States Constitution. The previous government under the Articles of Confederation had been unable to levy taxes; it had borrowed money to meet expenses, accumulating $54 million in debt. The states had amassed an additional $25 million in debt.

 

Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, sought to use this debt to create a financial system that would promote American prosperity and national unity. He urged Congress to consolidate the state and national debts into a single debt that would be funded by the federal government. Congress approved these measures in June and July 1790.

 

A source of government revenue was needed to pay the respectable amount due the bond holders to whom the debt was owed. By December 1790, Hamilton believed import duties, which were the government's primary source of revenue, had been raised as high as was feasible. He therefore promoted passage of an excise tax on domestically produced distilled spirits. This was to be the first tax levied by the national government on a domestic product. Although taxes were politically unpopular, Hamilton believed the whiskey excise was a luxury tax that would be the least objectionable tax the government could levy. In this, he had the support of some social reformers. The "Whiskey Act", became law in March 1791. George Washington defined the revenue districts, appointed the revenue supervisors and inspectors, and set their pay in November 1791.

 

To make a long story short….a rebellion ensued and George Washington sent in an army to put the insurrection down. The rebellion collapsed. Ten men stood trial for treason in federal court.

 

The Legacy

 

The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval. The episode demonstrated the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was therefore viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.

 

_________________________________________

 

 

 

The 2nd Amendment was written to ensure a “well-regulated militia” for the security of our fledging country, during a time when we only had a very small army and little federal monies to fund an army in case a superior country like Britain or France tried to invade. History shows that our Founding Fathers had no interest in protecting the right of our citizens to commit treason. Well….at least Washington and Hamilton didn’t.

Last week, the House of Representatives cast its 37th vote to repeal all or part of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

 

The repeal passed the House, though it will as usual, be ignored by the Senate.  That brings the total cost of all of their failed repeal votes to roughly $55 million in taxpayer money, according to one estimate.

 

But this vote also had another interesting side effect.  It also repeals a central deficit-reduction component of the GOP’s own budget, predominately written by Rep. Paul Ryan.

 

The Ryan budget gets trillions of dollars from Obamacare by repealing all of its spending, but it keeps its spending cuts and its new tax revenues.  Repealing Affordable Care Act would, as the budget does, eliminate the new spending.  But it would also get rid of spending cuts and the new taxes — which equal almost $2 trillion over the next decade.  Absent those, Ryan’s budget is far from reaching balance.

 

It’s also a reminder that three years after the passage of Obamacare, the Republican Party still hasn’t made good on its often repeated promise to repeal-and-replace.  It’s done the “repeal” part, alright…..but it is no closer to offering a replacement than it was in 2010.  In fact, it might even be further.  A few weeks ago, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor suffered a humiliating defeat on the House floor when Republicans beat back a modest bill he offered to fund high-risk pools for patients with preexisting conditions.  Even that was too much replacement for the Republican Party!!

 

Just as their balanced budget relies on the cost savings in Obamacare, their health-care policy relies on the existence of Obamacare.  If it wasn’t there to repeal, what would they have to say?  They got nuthin’!!!

 

House Republicans desperately want to rid the world of the Affordable Care Act.  On that, their sincerity cannot be doubted.  But as both their budget and their health-care record show, they are woefully unprepared for the world…if they actually succeeded!!

 

We all know the definition of insanity.  Who knows maybe the 38th time will be the charm.  One thing is clear….the House Republicans have no interest in legislating for the good of the country.

RMac,
I'm sorry about my delay in responding. The remodeling goes on! lolol

Indeed, I have heard this over and over as well, about the potential necessity of armed insurrection to fight our duly elected government. I agree with your statement. Additionally, our Founding Fathers wrote IN the Constitution the definition of treason as a specific act, namely "levying War against [the United States]". Article 3

It's unbelievable to me that any reasonable human would listen to suggestions that treason may be appropriate!!! Really??? They run around saying it's ok to be a traitor????



I'll have to disagree.  As all one has to do is look at the writers of the US Constitution and their association with the Revolutionary war.   Which would have directly influenced their writing of the constitution.   The taxing of the 13 colonies by England was seen to be excessive and destructive to the people.
