  • Curt Siters

    has everyone forgotten that WE are the government?

    • Gib74

      We haven’t.

      They have.

      Time to remind them and make them fear the people.

      • Phil Bourgeois

        anyone feel any different today with the federal government partial shutdown? Was the sun still shining? Able to get out of bed? ;-) I think old Harry and the rest of the liberals are mostly worried that a couple of weeks of government shutdown will mostly prove just how useless and unnecessary a good portion of our government really is! Anyone crying about the EPA being closed and shuttered? How about the Dept of Education? Or the other govt bastions of productivity and job creation? Gee – maybe a 1-month govt hiatus is just what we need to help reduce the gigantic annual deficit (at least we can cut it by maybe $300B). Meanwhile the bumbling Healthcare Exchange launches (or is that lurches) ahead!

        • Gib74

          If only that would be true. = [

          Even if they are ‘shutdown’ they’ll still get that three-hundred BILLION dollars their enforcers steal from us and it will vanish into the vast government abyss without being used for anything productive.

    • Harold Olsen

      The government has. I think the liberal voters have as well. They like the government controlling everything. That means they don’t have to take responsibility for their own actions. They can always blame everything on someone else. Just a bunch of spineless scumbags.

  • hangman57

    I don’t support or trust this Obama government . It is like trusting the Russian Government . Both Communist run.

    • Anthony Clay

      i trust putin way before the Muslim boy king

      • Mole Johnson

        You mean “Muslim weasel king”

      • Mole Johnson

        You mean “Muslim weasel king”

        • Harold Olsen

          Why not keep it simple? Muslim POS.

    • Jeff

      That’s so clever. Too bad it’s simply wrong on both counts. Close enough for a right wing loon.

    • Gib74

      I’d MUCH rather have the Russians.

      At least they love capitalism now after their failed communism was shoved down their throats and even if they’re not our drinking buddies their leaders at least love Mother Russia..

    • Harold Olsen

      I never thought I’d ever say this, but as much as I dislike Putin, I trust him more than Obama. Putin, at least, is a real leader.

  • Kenneth

    Wow he has it completely backwards! “We, the People” is the government. The “job” of federal employees to to SERVE AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC, us, the people who put them in office!!!

  • Anthony Clay

    A typical response from the party that gave us jim crow and the KKK, The government means everthing, the people nothing coming from a withered deadbeat who has lived off the teat for 40 years

    • Mad Dog Marty

      Reid is one of the leaders who can’t think for himself & march in lockstep like lemmings off the cliff!

  • jdn

    Its sad but Nevada must be real proud Reid to keep re-electing him for decades . He must have been beaten and bullied on a regular basis as a kid . What a mealy mouthed weasel .

    • Little John

      Old hairy has local unions in his pocket plus the union setup the voting machines.

    • Jeff

      Moron, he was a boxer as a young man. I’m sure he could still land you on your ample rump.

      • Gib74

        I’d LOVE to see him try.

        It’s amazing how liberals are completely devoid from reality. =p

        • Jeff

          Why? Do you know jdn? You know for sure he can beat up an old man? I’ll bet you might even go into a fight with Nancy Pelosi as a slight favorite.

          • Gib74

            Whoever said anything about him beating up reid?? Gotta love liberals and their ideas of grandeur. =p

            I merely stated I’d love to see him try. I would not be hard to stay awar from the zombie while it learches about trying to get ahold of him.

            Unless jdn is a paraplegic stuck in their wheelchair that wouldn’t be too hard.

            Sad to see how liberals encourage the abuse of the disabled…

            What a sad, sad ‘human’… = [

      • Goodyeargirl

        lol……….. you’re very adept at personal attacks…… wondering what mine will be…….. rofl Which step is this in the liberal system……… ah, yes…….. always the last one……. build it up so you can tear it down through rhetoric……… lol

    • liz

      I heard his son has something to do with the voting machines. Don’t laugh, check on it, no matter who you vote for it comes up Reid.

      • Jerry Morris

        Shadow boxing doesn’t count.

      • Harold Olsen

        It was his responsibility in the last election to make sure they worked properly. I guess that’s why every time a voter selected Reid’s opponent, the voting machine selected Reid.

    • Mole Johnson

      “weasel” for sure!

  • StinkBomb Jones

    Jonah Goldberg (see below) called Reid a “dim & sallow man”…how did such a man rise to such prominence & power? Can’t the LOONY TUNES LIBs do better than Pe-Lousy & Reid?

    • Jeff

      Jonah Goldberg is nothing but a mama’s boy and a right wing lackey. What makes you think he has any credibility anywhere outside these right wing corners of the internet?

      • MOOSE MITZMAN

        Why not address what he wrote, instead of a personal attack, Saul Alinsky?

        • independent thinker

          Because jeff like KG, smilee, and other liberal/progressives posting here never can directly address what they are responding to they have to use name calling, obfuscation, and outright lies.

          • Jeff

            I have written hundreds of thoughtful posts on these blogs. I only engage in name calling when someone posts something completely crazy. I do not engage in name-calling simply because someone has a different opinion so long as that opinion is logically stated. Make of it what you will.

          • Gib74

            I have yet to see any of your thoughtful posts or you have really low standards of what’s ‘thoughtful’.

          • Jeff

            Well, they’re not bumper stickers, so you probably couldn’t read them.

        • Jeff

          He writes right wing nonsense comparing liberals with fascists. To most people, this is idiotic nonsense. And his publisher is, I believe, his mother.

          • Goodyeargirl

            to the bulk of the American public…….. liberals are indeed fascists/socialists Nice job there attacking the messenger……. lol standard fare.

          • Jeff

            Perhaps in your neighborhood. Nationally not so much. Obama was re-elected by millions of votes and Democrats received at least a million more votes in the House than Republicans.

      • Jim Read

        Evidently you didn’t follow the link and read the information that made him credible which makes you very uncredible,. On never mind I almost forgot, you liberals can’t read facts you try and attack instead.

  • independent thinker

    Harry Reid is a senile old bastard whose speeches make less sense than Reagan did a year after he left office.

    • Little John

      We have some people in this nursing home with more brains left than Old man Hairy.

      • Harold Olsen

        The chair I’m sitting in has more brains than Dirty Harry.

  • Judicious

    Harry Reid has now personally attested to his demagoguery, leaving no doubt concerning the Reid greed trademark. And, of course, he speaks for his self-serving colleagues; those leeches who out of pure avarice exempted themselves from Obama ‘Scare while callously shaking down the rest of us. May they be shut down and cast out forever…

    • Mole Johnson

      This administrations days are numbered.

      • Goodyeargirl

        unfortunately, the number is 2 years, and close to 3 months……. sigh………. opportunity to train wreck and derail……. which is the ultimate goal of this administration.

  • Bonnie McKee

    Since you have forgotten, H. Reid, I will remind you that YOU are to SUPPORT THE PEOPLE AND THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!!!!! Not your own ambitions, but
    THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!!!!! Since you and your cronies refuse to go this, you are no longer welcomed ANYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!

  • Carbuncle Crawford

    This (below) sums up Reid & all the other govt. zombies!!! They are ill psychopaths!

    Congratulations! Finally an article with no troll postings complaining how the author biased the report. No need to when they convict themselves with their own mouths.

    • Vis Fac

      It just means you cannot argue the truth anyone who thinks differently is obviously a product of one dimensional idiot-ology!

    Ole Harry is on the way out!!! drank too much of the water in Nevada . Searchlight Damm can’t wait to see the women there . If Obama had a son he would look like Harry Reid. Nice going Harry shut down Washington because you can’t get your way!! take your health care Bill and shove it.

    • Jeff

      I hear there is coverage for mental illness – good news for you!

      • Jim Read

        and you

  • Mole Johnson

    Too damn bad Harry

  • pnwdave

    It’s time for the people of Nevada to remove Dirty Harry from representing them. He is a disgrace. And a turncoat. He now supports the same damn things that he complained about during the Bush years.

  • Jerry Morris

    Sorry Harry, you got it wrong. You are suppose to support the Constitution of the United States, NOT government.
    The day will come (and I hope it will be soon) that the American people will cram that Constitution down Harry’s and Obama’s throats.

    • Greg

      Don’t forget Pelosi, McConnell and McCain!!

    • Jim Read

      They all have forgotten their oath of office to protect the Constitution

  • Jerry Morris

    The people of this nation have for decades allowed this monster of a government to grow unchecked. Now it no longer sees no reason to carry out its mandated mission to protect the liberties of the people, but rather to protect itself from the people.

  • Harold Olsen

    It’s too bad this POS doesn’t support the American people. That is supposed to be his main priority. Instead, he, and just about every other politician ind DC, sh*ts on the American people every chance they get.

  • Jim B

    The entertainment keeps a coming! I thought they were just stupid, but Reid just took this to a whole new level of stupid… hey Nevada did you know your State Senator no longer works for you but for the shyster in the White House? I mean, we all know BHO didn’t grow up here, that’s public knowledge (and that doesn’t mean he’s not a citizen for all you yahoo’s out there), just that he’s conflicted about our countries creed of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; obviously! For BHO these are just words in a book that he can use from time to time for cover. Reid though, no excuse, he’s gone off the deep end when he stopped working for his State and began working directly for BHO, well we all lost.

  • Greg

    The Republicans should give into the Democrat’s demands!!!!! Who does Reid think he is?? There is no compromise to be had here at all. Maybe Reid sees himself as a tyrant like his boss Obama. The people of Nevada now hopefully see what kind of individual they keep reelecting and recall this guy. Like Obama, Reid did very dangerous to Nevadans and all Americans. Wake up Nevada and do the right thing.

    • Jim Read

      NO, NO, NO, NO

    • Goodyeargirl

      ABSOLUTELY DO NOT CAVE, REPUBLICANS!

    • Gib74

      They’ve tried to get rid of him before.

      union thugs stuffing boxes, being bussed to different voting centers so they can all vote often for him as early as they can and rigged voting machines maintained by the same unions will ensure that reid will be in office till he kneels over.

  • ONTIME

    It’s far more than a meds problem for Hairy and the freaks he hangs out with, these loonies really think they are in charge to the point being elected is not near as much fun as being self anointed……White coats and strait jacket time I do believe..

  • ibn insha

    You don’t support government, you ARE government. Can Democrats ever tell truth?
