Harry Reid Mocks Sarah Palin As He Launches Campaign

April 9, 2010 by  

Harry Reid mocks Sarah Palin as he launches campaign Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) kicked off his re-election campaign in his home state on April 5 by making a joke at the expense of Sarah Palin, who rallied voters in his hometown of Searchlight a few weeks ago.

At that event, the former Alaska governor said she hoped that the big government politics and the big spending promoted by the Democratic leaders in Congress will come to an end in November, and that Nevada voters will "fire" Reid.

As he was opening his speech on Monday, Reid said he "was going to give a few remarks on the people who were over here a week ago Saturday … but I couldn’t write it all on my hand."

Repeating Palin’s now-famous catch phrase, he added "You betcha!" to general laughter from the audience.

However, despite a rare display of a sense of humor, most commentators believe Reid may face an uphill battle as he campaigns for a fifth term in office.

A new Rasmussen Poll found that Reid has just 39 to 42 precent of the Nevada vote when matched against three Republican opponents. Two of his potential opponents now top the 50 percent level of support.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19708400-ADNFCR

    Just another reason this joker won’t be laughing much longer.

    Reid’s status makes him an icon of the Democratic Party and ties him to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and President Barack Obama, both of whom are losing ground among centrist and right-leaning voters in the country.

    Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll.
    Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.

    • skipfoss

      One of the three needs to be chosen and all get him or her to get rid of this liberal socialist rat once and for all

      • denniso

        Sara Palin is a bad joke…she knows essentially nothing…she belongs
        on saturday nite live…she should stick to fishing and shooting moose and quitting jobs 1/2 way through. How preposterous can things be in our country when a shallow,uneducated,untrained barbie doll actually come close to becoming VP of the largest superpower in the world?

        • Palin12

          Hey Denniso…fast forward to January 20, 2013…..reciting to Supreme Court Justice with hand on bible….”I Sarah Palin, do solumnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve,protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. You betcha!”

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Palin12,
            I’m all for that even if just for the fact it would drive eyes and dennislobber nuts!!!!

          • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Merryl Goldman

            Hey Palin12,
            What hallucinogens are you taking. The only job Palin is absolutely qualified for is streetwalker. She can dress in her black leather jacket,some stilleto boots,and a whip. She is an ass that knows nothing.
            When McCain brought her out of Alaska, he opened a Pandora’s Box…..I would love to stuff her back into it,or better yet see her running in the wilderness being chased by wolves!!
            Every time she opens he whiny mouth, she pollutes the air!
            DREAM ON!!

          • Palin12

            Meryl, I reckon it takes one street walker to know another.

          • JeffH

            Palin12, I just roared with laughter, not at your comment, but the reactions of the dimwits that are in complete fear of SP. Talk about brain farts, mention her name and the stinky ones come out in droves.

          • Palin12

            You noticed that too, Jeff? I remember when she was announced as VP choice,a couple of liberals I work with…..you should have seen the look in their eyes, LOL it was hilarious! It was like “Oh no…this wasn’t supposed to happen…all our carefully laid plans for Obama and the socialists…”

          • denniso

            You’ve got it wrong…we’re not worried about Palin,or as you sheep call her,’Sara’,we still can hardly believe that a major party would stoop to such dregs as Palin…a no nothing barbie who cost McCain the election,among other things. I’m glad to see rightwingers still flocking around her because it scares the independents and moderates
            and makes the Repubs look like fools to millions of Americans. Sure,some ignorant and uneducated people think she’s the female messiah for the party,but she’s actually toxic to it’s long range future.

          • Palin12

            denniso….what a filthy liar you are….everyone knows you and your ilk are scared to death of Sarah.

        • fed up

          keep on drinkin’ the koolaid!

        • RHebert

          And yet you make no mention of a Junior Senator with virtually no time sitting in the Senate, and no experience on his resume’ other than community activism, was voted into the highest office in the country. How absurd! Not exactly the credentials that should be used to elect our president….and yet…..there he is.
          What an embarrasing period for our great U.S.A. And now……….the entire world spends most of their time mocking this empty suit as he flies around the globe believing that he is being taken seriously….while at the same time he abandons and alienates our true allies!!! What a foolish, inexperienced, arrogant and dangerous man!I cannot wait for 2012 to arrive so we can evict him and his cohorts from the White House!
          Forget the Vice Presidency…………I’ll take Palin any day of the week over Obama and the insane mess he has created….and you can keep your “Hope & Change”. I’m a registered Independent and always have been….but I can truly say now, that I will never vote for a Democrat again! They’ve shown their true colors and it’s not a pretty sight!

        • Meteorlady

          Sounds a lot like Obama, except Sarah doesn’t have the backing of one of the major billionaire socialists in the world Soros.

    • Black Knight

      Well said. in 6 months he will be on the unemployment line along with nancy Pelosi and many other democrats who turned their backs on the American people. As it was said at the start of WWII by Yamamoto, commander of the Japanese Fleet that bombed Pearl Harbor. “”I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

      The American People are Angry, and disgusted. The democrats are done come next election and man of them already know it.

      • Ruby

        Don’t forget where Pelosi’s from…she doesn’t face a challenge for re-election. But, if the Republicans gain a majority in the House, she won’t be the speaker.

      • fed up

        YUP! OUT THE DOOR WITH THE DUM-O-KRATS! SARAH PALIN HAS COMMON SENSE WITH IS SADLY LACKING WITH MOST OF YOU LIBBER-ALS! I AM FED UP!

        • Palin12

          Good one Leah! ROTFLMAO!!

        • JC

          Reminds me of a woman in Detroit I saw on TV when the Kenyan was running for President: “Obama gon pay my mogij and fill my tank”
          I wonder how that’s working out for her in third world Detroit.

        • Ruby

          OMG! You read my mind! :-D

      • Carol

        Sam’s poor English grammar is probably also a good indication of just how ignorant he is on the issues of the country.

        • eyeswideopen

          Carol, on this site we don’t critize for grammar or spelling errors, although most of you conservatives like to bash people for that. Does it make you feel superior??? Not all people have had the advantage of obtaining a college education from those liberal universities that you all attend and then complain about, so in practicing what this country stands for, everyone has a voice and should not be demeaned due to not having that liberal education. Please don’t critize those who do not meet your high standards.

          • libertytrain

            Now that’s plain dumb – the people that have complained the most about spelling have been from the left, not the right —

          • JLC

            College education? Really EWO! Are you really not old enough to remember a good old-fashioned spelling bee? And, in GRAMMAR SCHOOL, no less!!!

          • rs81956

            Well, I come from a long line of war vets, who fought for the freedom of speech. Yet, I am called a Nazi by Pelosi because I say I do not like where this country is going. I am sorry to offend anyone but I do not like the IRS and the gov’t telling me what I should buy and eat. So since my father was in a Nazi war camp and tortured for my free speech,I hope all the 75 democrats in your family enjoy exactly what the government are going to do TO YOU NOT FOR YOU.

          • libertytrain

            JC – I admit that college stuff confused me since the bulk of the leftists on this site have proclaimed the right was not educated, are known to be rednecks, had lower IQ’s, etc. So if the right – uneducated as they are supposed to be- how come they, according to Eyes – can spell better than that far-superior, far-educated, higher-IQ’d left?

          • JC

            EO it stands to reason that you would make a comment like that after consistently correcting other people’s spelling. You are a HUGE Hypocrite.

          • Ruby

            I’m a good example of a conservative with an education level of “some college”. I grew up poor, and went to grammar school in poor neighborhoods. However, I had parents that made sure I finished my homework, brought home good grades, and made sure I learned the language of our new country (they were immigrants…came here “legally”). What a novel idea! Learn ENGLISH!? I’ll bet money, Sam isn’t an immigrant, nor the child of immigrants. Just another, “oh, poor me” person.

            My father never lost his accent, but that didn’t stop him from communicating and excelling here in the U.S. My mother’s primary language was English before immigrating, but only had a 3rd grade education. That didn’t stop us (the children) from excelling. We all made good grades, and learned the language well. We also read, write and speak our first language well.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Ruby,
            Sam is writing satire!!! If his tongue was planted any firmer in his cheek, it would be protuding through the other side!!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            To all the above: I have admitted repeatedly that I am a lousy speller and don’t have spell check active on my computer. I don’t ever critize anyone for misspelling anything. You are confusing me with someone else that you have tagged a liberal. I did tell Palin how to spell the liguor she was going to purchase, so that she wouldn’t get ripped off, but that is about it. I made comments to those who correct others, while they show that they aren’t perfect either. Hyprocrisy drives me nuts, so I would never attack someone for not spelling correctly. I will however defend the person who is being attacked, even if they have a different political view. Sticking my togune, tounge, wait have to look it up…tongue out at you!!!lol

          • libertytrain

            My three-year-old grandson sticks his tongue out at me – don’t usually know any grown-ups that do that? But I suppose they are out there.

          • Meteorlady

            Eyes – how many times have you made caustic comments to me?

      • Robert Wayne

        Hey dipshit, you gave away the fact that you have a below average IQ not only by proclaiming your little communist dictator is a great president, but also by using the grammar of a first grader.

        • JC

          Another product of state funded schooling? I want more than that for my tax dollar. If people cam’t even spell words in English I’d say the whole damned program is a failure and should be scrapped. If we can have illiterates for free, why pay school taxes?

          • JC

            LOL Well look at that, I spelled a word wrong! Mind you for me it’s an age/vision thing.

      • Stan B

        Hey Sam do you work for a living, or are you on the free list with your 75 people, that my taxes are going to give you free bees that I work for, dream on sammy boy, you can go back to where ever you came from, we are USA Americans, we work for what we have, and get, we the people are going to kick out all progessive nuts and that includes the biggest nut of all his highest BHBOBA, get off your butts and work….

      • http://naver samurai

        Well Sam, I admire your determination and resolve, but why is it going in the wrong direction? Here this administration passed healthcare on people that most Americans DID NOT WANT. Many democrats have retired or will lose in this years elections because of it. He has caused our national debt to reach record historical levels and has recently said that no matter what you do to us, we will not respond with nukes. He even put the creation of more jobs on the back burner for this. Don’t forget, this bill will cost you a lot more money every month, 16,000 new IRS agents to back up paying into it, and a new HEALTH CORPS who will be nothing more than a civilian paramilitary force to enforce it. Many states in the Union have filed injunctions in federal courts to stop it, as it is a violation of the 10th Amendment and an Americans right to freely choose. I can’t tell you how to think or vote, but I think you’ll be very disappointed come November!

      • Ruth

        Your amazing writing skills says it all. All I can do is wish you well with your health care.

        Oh…you will have to pay just like everyone else…keep drinking the kool aid.

        That is local where ever you live, did the nurse know you were on the computer? Better not let them catch you on there again, you may get sent to the rubber room if your cought.

    Another political game. They will bash each other until it is over.

    I am soooo glad I live in Nevada so I can vote Dirty Harry out. I think I’ll buy a bottle of Dom Pirignon on the day in November when he’s defeated. I urge any of my fellow Nevadans to take a potty break whenever Harry’s commercials come on TV.

You are such a depressed, conspiracy mongering, pessimistic person, I bet if the sales person says ” have a good day”, you break into a diatribe of why it can’t be because you see a monster behind every person, and Obama is the cause of all of the world’s ills. I really do pray for you, as your life must be miserable.

          • JeffH

            You are such a liar #1, and not at all #2. It’s very obvious who is miserable and who is not. I’ll give you a hint, I’m most certainly am the “not”.

    A classic case of the pot calling the kettle black (no racial pun intended). Harry’s days are numbered and Sarah will never hold public office again.

    • Flynn

      Don’t bet on it! One day there will be a woman president. Her name just might be Sarah. Who would have thought that Davy Crockett and the coonskin cap would ever be a two-term Congressman, and he turned out to be the best Congressman the USA has had in two centuries. I still think that he should have abdicated in favor of that farmer, though.

      • JeffH

        nice!

      Sarah may or may not hold public office again, but neither will Barack “Insane” Hussein “Osama” Obama!

  • s c

    The main issue here is Nevada’s #1 horse’s asset. Reid has been in Washington for far too long. He is indicative of what is so wrong with the Washington mentality. He’s not the only one, of course, but he goes out of his way to prove that Darwin was wrong.
    Some folks who suffer from a certain political persuasion are bound and determined to see to it that America devolves. If Reid wants to live in a tree and throw feces at anything that moves, let him.
    However, with his attitude, I’d be more than supportive of a ‘retirement adjustment’ that would force him to live on $20,000 a year. He should also qualify for a ‘filthy rich’ tax, especially since he has done little or nothing for many years.
    Beyond that, if I lived in Nevada, I’d look forward to reminding the old yahoo on a regular basis that
    he can be replaced by picking a name out of any Nevada phone book.
    While I don’t speak for every American, I think it’s fitting to say that America can do without people like Reid. Reid, if you haven’t figured it out yet, Nevada and the rest of America are trying to tell you that you suuucccck, and that Washington almost has to be a better place when your sorry posterior is GONE.

    • JeffH

      He gave a little speach the other day. There were about 100 union SEIU guys there sucking down the freebies. Looked like a morgue from the picture.!

      • Palin12

        Reid is on a 3 day tour of rural Nevada. Hope he sees all the “Dump Reid” signs along the way!

        • VegasPatriot

          Reid’s going down in this election. I personally don’t know anyone who is willing to vote for him and I live in the liberal area of Nevada…Las Vegas! Let’s face it, only thoes who want something for nothing will vote for him.

          • JeffH

            You have a pretty good idea It’s getting tough when a candidate like Reid has to rely on the SEIU to provide an audience for you even though it was a public forum.

          • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Paul

            In my opinion, Harry Reid (one of many dems currently attempting to destroy the U.S.), is a traitor; has violated the intent of numerous laws set forth in The Constitution, and should be in prison at the very least. Pelosi could occupy the cell beside him, they could occupy their time speaking of Marxist policies, and what should be done to patriots.

        Jeff,
        Good point, Reeds massive crowd was all of 125 people; thats on the high side, most were in some way staff members of some type.

        Yet I understand that the Tea Party had countless thousands of people from the Democrats, Rebublicans and Independents. This had the roads bogged down for hours, yet when Reed was there you could have driven 200 MPH down any road.

        WOW I guess old Twisted Reed had to make at least a few jokes about someone. After all you know when your goose has been cooked, Reed knows his ride in over like a roll in the hay in Dover.

        • JeffH

          Amen to that one TIME.

  • Boo T

    The only way that he Harry will be out is if it’s a fair election and
    we all know what Acorn and other cheating organizations can do to swing things their way. I just don’t trust them one iota and if Harry does pull it off, we’ll know that something is rotten in Denmark. But then what to do about it? We’ll see… I just hope and pray that all is fair and honest in November at the polls.

    • marvin

      Boo T, now why would you think that reid WILL, NOT may try to buy an election a man of integrity like reid that gave your money to crook,s in the sen to vote for obamacare shame on you Boo T for telling the truth

      • JeffH

        There aren’t enough ACORN left on the tree that could fill up a small basket for Reid in Nevada. In the Las Vegas Casinos they’ve taken to calling snake eyes “Reid” instead of craps at the dice tables. You lose!

    This has been a Marxist(anti-messiah) takeover!

      I’m just waiting to see if Obama manufactures some kind of lie to enact martial law and do away with what’s left of free elections. I don’t trust the halfbreed snake as far as I could throw him and he has to know that any American with an IQ above 10 can see how bad he and the Democrat party is and how they’re obviously trying to destroy this country. If they manufacture some kind of catastrophe or lie to stay in power, than outright revolt or secession by the red states may be the only way to save at least part of this country from the evil communists who so obviously want to hold their power. The northeast and the west coast put Obama and the rest of these scumbags in office. They can keep the S.O.B. We’ll form our own country out of the former Confederacy.

      • Rowdy

        Wow Robert: That is pretty heavy duty. I can understand where your coming from but just by thinking like that and speaking in that manner is playing directly into their hands. It is exactly what he is striving to do. To stir up enough descent among the people that unrest becomes so fever pitched that he can legitimately declare martial law. I am a good one to talk. I just went of on some liberal “eddie” below for calling me names and said some fairly similar things and probably should not have but boy he peed me off. And it is still being moderated so will probably be pulled. As several posts have been made and posted since and mine is still in moderation. I don’t know I may not even get to post this I may be blocked. I have a tendency to do that. But I only speak the truth from my heart but I guess I get carried away. because I care so much about my country. I am a viet vet and fought for my country. I think I should have the right to speak for it? Later

        The scenario you describe should definately be taken into account. It’s been done before and it will be done again. For now all we can do is get ready for a seige like situation. Stock up on everything you’d need for at least 3 months.
        And if I were “His Hopiness” I wouldn’t be counting on the support of the military ot the police. Those people are Americans who took an oath….The annointed one is not.

          Eyeswideopen, you say you are up on the subject at hand? Please read the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and try to understand what our founding fathers ment by self reliance and personal responsibility. Then there is freedom of choice and having that taken away from you by paying for this healthcare, whether you join it or not. Sounds like the snowball is getting to be rather large now, don’t you think?

            samurai, dude I am self reliant, not like some on this post who get disability payments, food stamps, medicaid. I own a business, have put kids through college, have a retirement fund, will not need SS, pay for healthcare for my employees, and have a very diverse family, with different denominations of the Christian Faith, and some Jewish we also have a few children with disabilities, whom we prize. I use this site as a teaching tool for my grandchildren and niece and nephews. No cusing here, and they get to view what hate looks like and how it functions like an angry dog pack. I make them do research to prove statements wrong and to recongize that people will make things up to advance their beliefs. You all assume that if someone disagrees with you, they must be unemployed, on welfare, a minority, non Christian, un-American, socialist, liberal. Did you not read our history? Our founding fathers argued and fought like demons, but comprised to get us the Constitution? You conservatives however can’t accept any view point but your own, and have the attitude that you are never in error on any decisions. I am now an Independent and will vote for the best person, not a party. That is a statement which few of you can echo. Point being, samurai (your choice of names is really telling), I am blessed and happy, and every day I try to make a stranger smile.

Just the fact that you get caught in too many lies and constantly post “links to nowhere”, contradictions, name calling, and the hypocrisy to say you are a christian and hide behind that veil to justify your bass ackwards incomprehentions, accusations and assumptions to judge others is the biggest violation of all.

    The fact that the Health Care bill was passed, in spite of the overwhelming public opposition against it, is a sure sign that our supposed representative government no longer represents us. Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson cut a deal for his 60th vote for Health Care. $100 million for Nebraska is buried deep in that legislation, it’s being referred to as the “Cornhusker Kickback.” The $100 million will help Nebraskans pay for their health care.

    • Flynn

      Mr. Goodin! You have just described many of our past presidents. I won’t name names, but several of our presidents have been morons and drunkards, but they managed to get themselves elected. You just described one of Sarah Palin’s best characteristics that makes her qualified to be our very first woman president, more qualified than our current one. Like that old farmer in Davy Crockett’s district, she knows the Constitution, and she knows how to get elected by going out amoung the “tea parties” rather than sitting inside that “big house” in Juneau or the one where she can see Russia from her living room window. It is time we had more old farmers in Congress and more Sarah Palins in the White House. After all, it is natural that a moronic constituency have morons to represent us. That is a representative democracy. It certainly would not hurt to have fewer Ivy Leaguers in the White House.

      • eyeswideopen

        Flynn, she doesn’t know the Constitution, or she would know that a VP doesn’t write legislation. Get Real, she can’t even pass a high school civics class, let alone an American History class. I would love for someone without notice to ask her to take an American History test. Then when she failed, maybe you people would understand that she really has no interest in this country and how it runs. Rove was right, she needs more knowledge. She doesn’t even get the drift that her grandson is on socialized government health care, funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.

          Her track record as governor of Alaska is actually very impressive compared to the Kenyan “community organizer” (communist) and she happens, at least, to actually be an American. She’s automatically 10 times more qualified than “His Hopiness”.
          That doesn’t mean I openly endorse Pailn so much as I’m stating an obvious fact.

      The dictionary’s definition for moron is; a person of borderline intelligence in a former classification of mental retardation, having an intelligence quotient of 50 to 69. As far as I’m concerned for you to classify Sara Palin as a moron shows that you classify yourself in the same category. Anyone to say something this dumb must be a moron. Sara Palin would not be where she is today if she was mentally retarded.
      She is hated and villified by the liberals because she stands for decency and moral and integrity. Standards which the majority of Dems don’t.

Well so should uncle Harry. But maybe it will be better to suffer a defeat in the face of his blatant moves of late. It is just too bad we as a people cannot make him live on Social Security. Why should those people get elected to these offices, and no matter their age when they are done they get a pension that most of us can only dream about.Lets hope the people are smart enough to clean house the right way this fall and take back our country. And for liberals wake up you are about to find out about the word majority, and how it works. have a nice day.

    Thanks for the great laugh, Ben. I’m not ready to categorize Palin, but I am ready to categorize your hero, Obummer, AND every doodoogaga, silly putty-brained, useful idiot who voted for him.
    Any prez who jumps at the chance to grade himself
    (and gives himself a high grade) is a first-class horse’s asset (by choice). It makes me wonder if that’s how he got through Haavid.
    Thanks again, Ben. Your Obummer-style arrogance let you walk right into that one. Want some cheese to go with that incessant whine?
    By the way, you forgot to mention that Bush was in the White House for 8 years. Isn’t there a penalty involved when a progressive forgets to throw that bilge into a public conversation?

        You said that right Leah. I worked with a guy for 4 years that bashed Bush everyday. It’s all he could think about. He probably even knew what Bush had for breakfast that day. Then Sarah Palin was chosen. He went ballistic. I never heard anymore about Bush.

      Yes, but how about the millions who were at home working hard at their jobs to pay the Obamacare taxes that are coming while encouraging the 20,000 faithful souls who were in Washington to make their voices heard. Haven’t you heard of the great silent majority? Come now! Richard Nixon, the “I am no Crook”, is not that far back in the dark ages. The great silent majority will be heard as soon as November in Nevada, as it already has been heard in Scott Brown’s Massachusetts, Virginia, and New Jersey.

        Jeff, that’s because you have a closed mind and can only hear the rantings of the Right Wing Authoritians chanting the republican talking points. Your talking points are: Soros, Acorn, Obamacare, they are taking our guns away, they are reducing my medicare benefits, communist control, government is force, socialism, taking my country back, Alinsky, Marxist, Nazi, all this chanting while you are taking government socialized disability payments. Where would you be without that government help? You really shouldn’t try to bite the hand that is feeding you. If you had worked hard, saved money, and spent responsibly you wouldn’t be taking disability payments. How can you make judgements of others doing the same exact thing you are? Your hypocrisy is what is so appalling. I guess it is ok, for the repubs or conservatives to take handouts, but the others need to be rebuked it they do. When you are standing in front of Jesus, I can’t wait to hear you say, Yes Lord, I got government assistance, but I deserved it because I belonged to the correct political party, the rest of the people didn’t deserve it because they were liberals.

Yes, I get a pension, but it doesn’t matter who the political party is that occupies the White House or maybe it is called Mecca for this president. You say you have paid for 40+ years? I’ll admit, I’m younger than you, but I’ve paid much more than you have for this country. I don’t mean $ figures, but by receiving a silver star, bronze star, and two purple hearts, fighting for this country. I’ve known soldiers that have paid the highest price for it, their lives. Don’t you sit there and complain that “Osama” is being ridiculed for his policies and not being a good American. I guarantee that every medal I wear on my chest and everyone that has died fighting for this country, I know a few personally, is more than anything you have ever done for this country and in your life.

My arm is fine, but I don’t and will never be able to have full extention, basically a “crooked” arm. I was only minimally handicapped by it, just never had great arm strength when it came to throwing, push ups and pull ups. I adapted and developed tremendous forearm and shoulder strenght.

Who do you think you are? Do you think this country has only been defended by Conservatives? You are un-American, and you really don’t deserve to live here, if you can’t accept that Americans are guaranteed the right to have different views. The Constitution doesn’t say,only the Conservatives have rights and that they make all the correct decisions. You are actually the American Taliban in action. Congratulations you will have a place in history as the group who tried to take America down, by not allowing freedom of thought. I bet you have fantasies of killing liberals don’t you?? You mean you were part of that group that is employed by the government?? Look out they will stone you for having the wrong type of job. Sucking at the teet of the Federal government is not allowed, no union jobs, no teaching jobs, no state or county jobs, (that covers police, fireman, prison guards) no private sector jobs relating to social services, the conservatives are very picky on where they allow people to work and what is acceptable jobs to have.

            samurai, if eyes truly believes that history will label us as terrorists, then it will be recorded that we were terrorists for freedom and against socialism, Marxism and the radical agenda of an ACORN/SEIU organizer turned president. I think Palin was spot on, a president without a complete term as a senator, a full time organizer and a full time candidate…zero, nada, experience as a leader. It is a glaring weakness that shows each and every day of his time in office.

    Harry Reid needs to go away. Really go away. He’s rude, elitist and has no concept of what his constituents want. You can make all the funny remarks you want to draw attention away from yourself and your voting record, but you can’t hide everything and this guy is a real piece of work.

    GO AWAY HARRY!

    • Patriot1248

      Yep. That’s how they roll, FF.

      The Alinsky tactics are getting old, but it is important that we continue to identify them for what they are and call them out each and every time they are deployed. There will be many such opportunities between here and November.

      We need to stay focused on free market (non-NeoMarxist) solutions and keep fighting the good fight!

      • JeffH

        Patriot1248, it is heartening to realize that there are real American patriots joining the rest of us on this site every week.
        All of you are real Americans and can stand proud.
        Keep the Alinskyites reeling in their tracks and understand this;

        In Alinsky’s own words: “A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat(from Latin proletarius, a citizen of the lowest class) by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.”

        • Patriot1248

          Jeff,

          Check this out – by replacing a few key words, I can transform this statement into one with which I’m sure true patriots would all agree:

          “A [patriot] begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the [electorate](from Latin electus, those who select dumbasses as their gods) by the [washington establishment]. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end [name of incumbent ideology here], then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the [RULE OF LAW - sorry dictatorships just never go well], and finally the last stage — the political paradise of [government of the people by the people for the people].”

          The moral of the story is simple. By reducing enormous, complex, and interrelated segments of society into hopelessly polarized and opposing viewpoints (each nicely categorized with a label to be spoken with either reverence or contempt), those who would divide and conquer for their own purposes will continue to destroy this nation.

          Personally, I’m sure Marx actually believed his own words (after all they sound GREAT if you just change the labels, right?!!), the problem with implementing the theory of Marxism is simple: once you centralize power to the extent required to pull off a Marxist utopia, that centralized power will be concentrated in the hands of too small a group, who will soon become very aware of this fact and start to abuse said power (can anybody say Stalin?). It’s really a very nice theory, but the implementation details are a real b-tch (with my pre-emptive apologies to canines and feminists).

          No thanks – I’m sort of nostalgic about this whole “democratic republic with a Constitution” thing, and I won’t stand quietly by as it is destroyed from within, in the name of bringing about some bullsh-t utopia that is not likely on this planet, if history is to be believed (as opposed to being re-written, also an Alinsky communist technique).

    Prince Harry doesn’t have any room to talk about someone. He made the infamous remark that the “common people stink” when visiting the White House and then 6 months later he closes the doors to transparency so “us common people” could not listen and view the debate on the healthcare bill. So much for the Constitution I guess. Now it is our turn Mr. Reid. You will become unemployed and your son will not get elected either. They call this “legacy costs”!

    • Palin12

      Don’t forget Harry’s remark that then Sen. Obama was electable because “he was a light skinned Black, and did not speak with a Negro accent unless he wanted to”.

    • Rowdy

      Yep your absolutely right. That is why she marched into Alaska politics and kicked the crap out of Dem and Rep alike. Put the corrupt jackasses in prison. Put the oil Co. in line and made Alaska the most prosperous state of the 50. straightened out more corruption in six months than any other politician in the nation could have in 30 years IF they had decided to try. Got the job done. set an example, and walked away, She knows she has bigger fish to fry. Wait till she throws the next batch of salmon on the grill. Make no mistake about it there are a lot of politicians that are shaking in their boots right now for fear of what she has up her sleeve. They are all aware of what she is capable of. They have seen it first hand. It has been said quite a few times of late by several people some of them very prominent politicians. “The people are coming with pitch forks, and I am not going to be here when they get here” And Sarah is in the front of the crowd. Watch out that you don’t get caught on the wrong side of this deal.

      • Palin12

        You nailed it Rowdy. I’ve known about Sarah about 4 years now and I remember when she defeated Gov. Murkowski in her own party. Frank Murkowski is the guy who appointed his daughter as Senator from Alaska.

    Well for all you people in Nevada. If you actually think the conservative Republicans are going to save Nevada. LOL, LOL,LOL. If they had it their way, all the casino’s would be gone. And Harry Reid will be sipping ….whatever…laughing all the way to the bank.

    • Patriot1248

      Free market solutions and adherence to the principles of The Constitution might be able to save Nevada, if it isn’t too late already, and if Prince Harry’s successor has the conviction to abide by them. THAT would be a change we can believe in.

      One thing is certain: more deficit spending, higher taxes, big government intervention, and state-run media will certainly fail, as history has so clearly demonstrated again and again…

      We are all in this together, and it’s going to take a lot more than dividing everything into the “same old” (to quote one of the President’s favorite buzzwords he so masterfully used against McCain) binary “conservative” vs “liberal” diatribes to fix this mess.

      • eyeswideopen

        patriot, here is information about the conservative nanny state.
        http://www.conservativenannystate.org/cns.html

        You people helped create this awlful mess, now you are trying to blame others. Facts are hard for you to digest, but eventually you will have to take responsibility for your actions.
        I bet you wont’ read the entire article, as you will get mad and quit.

        • Patriot1248

          Very interesting. Not done with it yet, but I assure you I will read it in its entirety. While I can already see that the author is leaning a bit further in the direction of broad-brush-stroke labels than I would prefer myself, I understand that is sometimes necessary when describing abstractions like political theories. So be it – as long as one can distinguish between a theory/label and an individual – a skill which is increasingly rare in our current state of political affairs.

          I’m encouraged to see a favorable treatment of free market solutions. Even China understands the necessity of free markets – without them socialism implodes under the burden of its own self-induced economic demotivation.

          Anyway, I will certainly read it, and I welcome any legitimate discussion that is based on ideas deeper than:

          L: “Bush sucks”
          R: “Oh yeah? Well Obama sucks more.”
          L: “Well Palin is stupid and she sucks donkeys”
          R: “You’re a dumbass”
          L: “Takes one to know one”
          R: “Unh-uh”
          L: Uh-huh”
          R: “Hunh-uh”
          L: Uh-huh”
          …etc

          If we the electorate continue to be fooled by these hucksters, con-artists, and worse, we will have no one to blame but ourselves for the loss of our liberties. Personally, I think the constitution provided for as much government as we needed (very damn little). Any steps taken in the name of increasing the size of government (regardless of the label in whose name they are taken) are steps in the wrong direction, IMHO.

          • JC

            Point well made Patriot.

        • Patriot1248

          Actually, I’m enjoying this article quite a bit. Haven’t had time to check all the facts, but lots of really good points are being made. That said, I have noticed I could equally substitute “Liberal” in many of the places where it says “Conservative”, and it would read the same.

          No doubt GW Bush was NOT a stellar practitioner of free market government, but OMG, how could anyone recognize this fact and then go on to think that somehow Obama’s Cloward-Piven spending orgy is somehow, via some intense perversion of logic (rooted in the mantra of “I inherited…”), MORE fiscally responsible than Bush was?? That is a leap I just can’t make…

      And those 100 are dam lucky the buses didn’t stop!!!!

  • Rowdy

    Harry Reid is toast we are pretty sure of that. As far as Sarah is concerned, she may speak with a little colloquialism and even make a rather ridiculous remark here and there that just proves she is not a well trained politician, and doesn’t speak with a forked tongue. I will take her over most of the politicians in office today any time. They all have to have a teleprompter or several pages of text to pull off a half arsed speech. She takes on a pitched debate with a few notes on her hand and you call her stupid. Looks to me like the stupid ones are the ones that can’t tell the difference between well polished lies and genuine concerned patriotism. My biggest concern is that we all study our candidates and their policies well. Choose carefully and get everyone behind the one candidate so the libs can not slip through the cracks. Our country is in dire danger. We either make some very serious changes in NOV or it is too late.

    • Patriot1248

      Well said Rowdy. I’ll take notes on hand over a teleprompter any day!!

    Retail Sales for March: the best sales numbers in a decade…. Great news on the economic recovery after the rightwing nearly destroyed America…. This will assure Harrys election…. I’m sure all good Americans are please with good economic news…, great job president Obama…. It seems Americas confidence in the healthcare bill is increasing…

    • JeffH

      GEEZ, your at it again…what those figure don’t reflect is that the sales of stores like Costco, Target, Sam’s Club etc., are showing 10% upswing in sales while the others that don’t have the same buying power are slipping. Americans have to buy goods, so don’t get the “happy feet” just yet!

    • Jeep

      Didn’t Wal-Mart announce yesterday that they are going to have a major price cut. I believe this is to keep their recent sales increases going…Even Wal-Mart knows that Easter sales only come once a year. And, that once the tax checks run out, spending will drop off. AL if you want to point towards an economic recovery, then look to some more relevant stats, like unemployment, trade deficits, etc. Your picture might be a little more accurate.

    Americans are going to need legal counsel and advice to wade their way through their healthcare options under the new healthcare reform legislation.

    • JC

      No surprise there. After all you’re dealing with a government bureaucracy right?

  • Rowdy

    American Liberal: Those were some of the stupidest comments I have ever heard. I have not verified these best sales numbers in a decade. And I seriously doubt the truth in it. however even if it is true it has nothing to do with confidence in health care. since there is nothing in the health care bill to be confident in. excuse me that is unless you have confidence in socialism working. Because that is all it was about. It does nothing to improve health care and everything it does destroys what was the best health care system on the face of the earth. Time will attest to these facts. If anything caused any recovery it is the fact that the American People can see hope in the recovery of the political system from the dire straits it was headed into and the fact that the health care bill will soon be repealed and work will start in earnest to modify issues with health care to bring abuse of the system under control, which was the major problem causing higher costs. Be assured the American people are awake now and will regain control of the system and real change will be enacted. Level headed control of the government will soon put a stop to Obama’s rampage and he will be next to be removed if not before 2012. Traitor. Usurper. Liar.

  • eddie47d

    Rowdy,Sarah has spoken with “forked tongue”many times. (how about death panels for one). Obama saw the abuses of the last administration which you seem to endorse and is doing something about it. He spoke up for change when America was falling down. There was no level headed control of government under George Bush or of the private sector. So that makes you the traitor,usurper and liar.You seem to be dragging us back to that same ol’ugly path.

    • Patriot007

      Spoken like a true Communist. I’ll bet your Section 8 apartment (because you willingly hand over your right to own property) will be Govt. furnished as well when you return home from a 3 days wait at the doctor’s office. Wait let me guess, you have a right to these things, just like I have the right to declare you lazy and incapable of raising your family by your own labor. Leeches like you suck the life out of productive Americans so indolent liberals can have free food stamps and belly up to the table of citizenship while not contributing a thing but your apetite for more tax-payer provided goodies. I laugh hard at you with derision because of your foolish outlook. I will continue to suceed and prosper while you languish in your failure to “man up”. You might says that you’re not what I just described. Maybe not today, but believe me my Communist friend, like Dr. Zhivago, your path to poverty is being followed by your own hand with the help of your liberal President and Congress that you promote.

      • Rowdy

        Very well said sir. Your understanding, and cohesive expression of the situation is very much appreciated.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        eddie47d-cup,
        What do you call adding another 30 to 45 million people to an already cash-strapped medicare plan??? If you don’t call not being able to get care a death sentence then you aredrinking way too much koolaid or MD20-20!!!!

    • Rowdy

      Listen eddie: don’t make this personal: I spoke objectively, and truthfully. You turn it on me and start calling me names your barking up the wrong tree buddy. I am not famaliar with her saying anything about death panels. The only thing I can logic it to is portions of the health care bill. If that is what your speaking and she referred to them in that manner. I am afraid I will have to side with her. If you have read any amount of the bill you will see that it literally does very much over and over define who has jurisdiction over and when and the conditions of the end of life plan. This is nothing but Nazism. It goes way past socialism, Marxism, or any other ism I can think of. When one dies is totally up to them and them only. No one NO ONE else has any say in the matter. This is adjudicated in our constitution as well as by GOD. How this neo nazi jerk and his staff of gestapo think they can write laws defining another persons end of life is enough to make me puke. Such actions strike at the very heart of what our country stands for. And is nothing less than an attempt to create legislation to legitimize and install a program or system of euthanasia.

      No where in what I wrote did you see me say anything along the lines of I thought Bush was good, right, or justified. In fact I said just the opposite. I said that ALL politicians need to be judged. If they have done our country wrong they need to be canned, pensions removed, any wealth obtained while in office stripped away and deported from our country. That is exactly what Sarah has in mind along with millions of other common sense Americans. Enough of the old system that was destroying our nation. We have to find people like Daniel Boone, and many others that actually understand freedom, the constitution, and common sense. Of which I can clearly see you are not one.

From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.”

        In Marxist theory, the proletariat is the class of a capitalist society that does not have ownership of the means of production and whose only means of subsistence is to sell their labour power[1] for a wage or salary.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proletariat

    • Rowdy

      yea eddie: he saw the abuses of the last administration and is doing something about it. Abusing us ten to one hundred worse. Thats a fix for sure. I don’t know if my main post in reply is going to make it past moderation or not but if it does read it. it explains a lot. If it doesn’t and I am still allowed to post I will modify it to try to get it posted and retry. Your eyes are so closed you can’t see anything. If you search out my posts on many sites and blogs (including others on this blog, you will find that I in no way support the same ol’ugly path as you put it. My whole theory on this whole mess is that the people should form a panel of people and they test each and every politician past, present and future. with a lie detector test, in fact a series of three. if they fail to prove they are steadfastly behind common sense government, less controlling government, less government preiod, the constitution, representing the people, then they are booted, lose all benefits, retirement, any money they accumulated while in office and deported from our country. Very quickly we would have a lot less tax burden, and an extremely more efficient and honest governmental system. Does that sound like I endorse the former president or cabinet, or that I am a traitor, usurper, liar and am trying to lead us back down the same ol’ugly path? If you can still come to that conclusion then you truly are blinded by your unthinking dedication to a leader who promises handouts for all. think about it just how long do you think that can possibly last. Maybe long enough for them to eliminate about 80% of us so the rest can manage to survive this mess.

    • Rowdy

      Oh yes eddie: one last point I just have to cover. You showed up at the beginning of this blog and railed on everybody for being so emotional in their posts over such a simple subject and yet in your post here you proceed to call me on a personal basis a traitor, usurper, and liar. This amazes me first in the fact at how quickly you changed from one philosophy to the opposite. And secondly in that you obviously do not know the meaning of those words that you are calling me. And believe me sir I am none of these. I volunteered to serve my country in war during vietnam. And I did so honorably, and was highly decorated, and I thereby upheld the oath I swore to my country. I am not sure but I think that pretty much proves me to be the opposite of all three of the things that you just labeled me. I think that if you had half of the patriotism that I have you would think about things much differently than you do.

    Back in the late 1970′s, I was living in Nevada, and would like to have stayed there but my employer had different ideas on that subject. At that time, we had a senator and former governor named Paul Laxalt (If I have mispelled that, I apologise). As far as I know, he is still alive, and enjoying (I hope) his retirement. The only reason that I bring him up is that in 1974 (I believe) the man that he defeated for the senate was Harry Reid. We need more people like him

    Reid is going down… He will go on the “YOU’RE FIRED BUS” Oh how funny Bart Stupak In Wake of Health Care Reform Vote, Stupak to Announce Retirement….Bart Stupak knew he didn’t have a chance ! He was booed every where he went..just as Nelso was right out of a resturant ! Now,Stupak had no choice but to get on the “YOU’RE FIRED BUS ” As Obama-Pelosi runs a false reason as they tried to make him stay..Oh no,no why they said this was to not get ragged out by bloggers Press when Stupak was voted out..How would that look on them ? People of America are not taking it no more and we are voteing those bums out and they know it..Oh democrats could not take another lost as Mass,N.J Va….how would that really look ? Dam…. I was looking forward in the election to vote his tail out and to see how bad he was beat.. Oh well that’s democrats for you..run or told to get out so they won’t look bad..being of the heatlh care.. we all know Stupak had no chance at all.. BYE BYE STUPAK… REID BOXER-PELOSI-WATERS BARNEY FRANK -Rhines- all of you are fired !!! the bus is coming to you to get on..PACK UP …YOU ARE FIRED ALL OF YOU WHO SHOVED THIS HEALTH CARE DOWN THE AMERICANS PEOPLES THROATS.AS WELL AS ALL THE BAILOUT STIMULAS MONEY THAT WAS TO GO TO AMERICANS..

    Adding to my last post. I would give my eye teeth to know just who wrote up this health care bill. These things are supposed to be written by the elected officials in office in representation of the people. You can not find one person in the house or senate that has read this thing let alone understand it, or even begin to be involved in it’s composition. Who made up this huge pile of garbage and forced our representatives to pass this pile of crap imposing it on us. This has to be one of the most outrageous insults to the American people I have ever seen. And In the past I have seen some pretty good ones but this one takes the cake.

      ACORNcracked.com recently obtained an audio recording a speech by Robert Creamer, given at the Take Back America 2008 conference in Washington, DC, that was hosted by Campaign for America’s Future, an ultra-liberal organization.

      Let’s be clear: the need for health care reform (assuming for a moment there actually is a need), is seen in battle terms by liberals in power. They need it. They salivate for it. It’s something they must deliver for their base and their biggest campaign contributors.

    • Savvy

      Personally I think G.W.Bush was just about as insulting to the American people as could possibly happen.

      ANY attempt to resolve America’s health care system is better than just continuing to prop up what we had going before. What did our system consist of except a supper hiway of corruption designed to channel every last drop of American blood into the hands of a few bloated corporations?

  • Chetan Kinsey

    I am surprised about quite a number of things that are happening in US politics these days. The biggest surprise is that facts, science and quality research are deemed such taboo subjects by the Republicans. Emotions, anger, bandwagon hollering are the only things that modern republicans seem to find worthy of attention. Are all Republican issues so weak that facts and research cannot be included in the arguements?

    As far as Harry goes, I have yet to see him act unintelligently or without the sound backing of the facts and research surrounding the matter. He may not be popular with the bashers but I will always vote intelligence and wisdom over pandering to emotional extremism.

      Intelligence??? Who is the person that wrote this health reform bill? Was it one person or a combination of people that were hellbent on “fixing” something they should have left well enough alone until someone somewhere in this administration had the logic to incorporate it logically and rationally instead of being in such a hurry at the end? They worked on it for a year. Haste makes waste and this is exactly what has happened when they thought time was running out. Sure, there are some things that needed to be overhauled but do it properly. The name of the game in politics is with the thought of being re-elected for doing “something” good. Well, to hell with that. I want elected officials to do their job and do it with ethics, morals, honesty and with the American people in mind. Jobs and the economy should be first and foremost. Dealing with the illegals should have been next in line. Beefing up our military and keeping our military is another item that should be taken care of and I DO NOT mean going to war. I am not a warmonger. Military might is for America’s self preservation. There are numerous radical countries that I do not trust and I despise catering to them. They have short fuses and who knows what they will do in the future. I despise the lobbyng, the earmarks, and all the rest of the unethical shenanigans that are going on. Obama was elected for his campaign promises and what do we have? The same old earmarks, lobbying, and nothing has been changed. I despise being led down a path I do not want to travel.

      • DamnYankee

        Truth is arguable; facts are not. Truth is according to who is doing the telling; facts are facts that can not be argued. 1+1 still equals two.

        Popularity does not equal leadership. We have no leaders today. They are politicians, whose main concern is whether they will be re-elected. It does not matter if the laws they pass is good for the people as a whole.

    SaveAmerica (ugh), News Flash: In spite of what you were taught in your institute of liberal indoctrination, the majority of men who founded America were Christian and conservative.

    They gave us the most magnificient system man could devise in order for people to flourish. It has always been the influence of the left that has sought to corrupt all morality and decency for the purpose of the failure of liberty. For only a moral and upright people can sustain a system which, in its very nature, relies on an honorable and moral people.

    Your side has always been seduced by the promise of getting something for nothing by taking from those who produce. And in order for that to be possible, you must first be relieved of all self-accountability and self-respect.

    The left has succeeded in that mission.

    Put that in your pot-pipe and smoke it.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    From: James Graham

    From: S STEELE
    THE HEART OF OUR PROBLEMS IS OUR POLITICANS ARE MONEY HUNGRY !!!!

    As a widow of a military retiree, who stood with her husband for over 20 years while he served this country (which was the greatest in the world until this Congress and President took over), I have to say I agree. Shirley

    As a retired military man that have given over twenty-seven years of my life to my country, I truly feel that what this
    Country needs most is a new amendment to the Constitution . I am recommending that we add the 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Congressman, Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman. Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

    This 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES Will apply to all passed, present and future
    Congressman, Senators And Representatives.
    Just think of all the money this would save the tax payers!!!!!

    I think the Senators, Representatives or Congressman that comes out strongly for this will be our next President.

    HTCM USN Retired James A. Graham E-Mail address is ( jagraham@charter.net ) Please forward !!!!!!!

    • DamnYankee

      HEAR!! HEAR !!! They, Congressmen/ Congresswomen should not be above the laws that they pass. If it is good enough for you and me, they should also be required to abide by those laws. If they serve only one term, they should not receive any of the perks. My copy of the Constitution states in Article 1, Section 4, near the end , that” The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.” Why then do they have to have two homes, spend most of their time in D.C., or take two weeks or better vacation/break each time there is a holiday? They are there with the consent of the people, and they are to work for the people.

    From: Edward Goelz
    :
    Some people got a Raise, I DID Not …

    I will send this out every month until election time, just as a reminder. If everyone remembers, we can make a difference.

    GRRRRRRRRRR….! I’m MAD AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO!

    Your U.S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700

    and $5,300 raises.

    1. They voted to not give you a S.S. cost of living raise in
    2010 and 2011.

    2. Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife

    3. Over 2-yrs The House & Senate each get $10,000 raises

    4. Do you feel SCREWED?

    5. WILL your cost of drugs – doctor fees – local taxes – food, etc., increase? You better believe they will!

    WILL THEIRS…NO WAY
    . They have a raise and better benefits. Why care about you? You never did anything about it in the past.
    You’re obviously too stupid or don’t care. No offense; just making a point!

    6. Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care about you?

    SEND THE MESSAGE — You’re FIRED.!!!

    IN 2010 YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE SITTING CONGRESS AND Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE, AND 100% OF THE HOUSE.

    MAKE SURE YOU’RE STILL MAD IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND TELL THEIR REPLACEMENTS NOT TO SCREW UP.

    It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse.
    Maybe it’s time for the……..

    Amendment 28
    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United
    States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives,
    and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or
    Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the
    United States .”

    Let’s get this passed around, folks – these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves!!! It’s time for retribution. Let’s take back America.
    If you don’t forward this to all your friends you’re just part of the problem of national apathy.

  • kate8

    By all means, lets vote them all out.

    We do need to beware, though, that the left advances by infiltrating
    the institutions of the opposition. Just look at what is going on in the churches. They knew they had to take over religion from within.

    The same for the Republican Party or any third party: they are infiltrated by progressives. Leftys will lie, cheat and steal to advance in power – end justifies the means. It will be difficult to know who is real. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    We must all be discerning and vigilant. EVERYTHING is deception.

Forrest Gore made billions off of fake research, the Dark Ages were caused by gobal cooling, I don’t think there was too many cars or trucks on the highways. May have been a lot of boats and several fat eleitists passing gasous material, but you simple minded, follow the communist line democrat idoits beleive fecal material put out by educated garabage as fact. Look at Oidoit and his high brow educatated credintals, that dumbazzes voted for, you simpletons didn’t listen or read or observe the thugs and his close butt buddies thought and spouted.

    something tells me the republicans are going to shoot themselves in the foot before the election. we are already seeing the members of the republican campaign committee being charged with lewd behavior? and michael steele isn’t competent to run a boy scout troop. sean hannity calling for another contract with america, evidently he doesn’t remember the last one, did it last one or two month’s. we need to refrain from these so called contracts and make it plain to our candidates, no nonsense, honest legislating, not a get rich quick job like we have seen in the past. if we do not get honest people in the congress and remove this dead wood we have now its all over. with the third world mentality we have in half of our population. “hip hop and rap is their national anthem” and a basketball game is their highest goal. they are out breeding the patriots of this country and another few years we are done and will be enslaved by communism or the new age progressives, same thing.

    • Claire

      chuck b — I have to agree with you on this. Something tells me the same thing. They have no leader and it is like they are running around in circles. They need to stop and get a grip. They are doing nothing but bashing and are not promoting their solutions to the problems at hand. All the bashing in the world will do no good until they come out with some solutions, plans, etc. for the betterment of America. They need to do this ASAP.

    What do you want to bet that those who are “stepping down” and not seeking re-election were promised some other sweet deal by the Osurper if they would support Obamacare against the will of the people. Washington is a revolving door, remember. They will turn up.
    Usually as a lobbyist. Great money in that.

    What was that one commie quoted as saying…”Some who are in power will have to step down in order for someone else to have power…”
    Someone else? I think he meant someone more communist.

    It is more critical than ever that we don’t fall for politics as usual
    in the coming election. I don’t know if there are any politicians who can be trusted.

    You don’t have to have a college education to know what is happening to our country. Obama, just signed treaty to cut nuclear arms—while other countries are building theirs. We are in debt to China and sending jobs to them! American people had better wake up!!

    • Claire

      I do not approve of this treaty to cut nuclear arms unless ALL countries participate and you know they won’t. And if they did, we couldn’t trust them to hold up their end of the bargain. Anybody with any brains at all would know this. Rules were made to be broken and this treaty is no exception. These politicians are putting America in jeopardy. What will Obama do if America is attacked by one of these sleazeball countries? Will he use ALL the firepower we have or just use darts? Pardon the sarcasm. I want America to be in a strong position to protect herself. We must never deplete our military strength nor our firepower. We must never let the world know we are in a weakened position. In this present day and age, we do not need to be tied to some “treaty” that will prevent us from reacting quickly and sufficiently to an attack. For example, one never knows what Iran is capable of, not to mention the other short-fused countries. There will never be world peace and I would think our government would realize this.

  • kate8

    Obama does not want a strong America. His mission is to destroy it.

  • kate8

    No, the repulicans have not done a great job, because the party has been infiltrated by leftists. Bush was no conservative. He was progressive, as are many on the right. The republican party has gone
    so far left as to be democrat light. The democrats have gone so far left they’ve fallen off.

    Bush, Bubba, W, all did their part to set us up for destruction, to be carried out by BHO. And is he ever enjoying himself, living larger than anyone before him at taxpayer expense. Taking us the rest of the way to economic and social collapse, laughing all the way. Snubbing our allies, kissing the feet of our enemies, embarrassing our country
    and dissing the American people. Yup. Great guy.

    You guys just don’t get that the elites at the top are all part of the same club. They need to keep us bickering over partisan politics while they plunder and party all the way. And wealth redistribution?
    Sure. Take from the people and give to the elites.

    You liberals are such fools.

  • kate8

    As for being the party of NO, you betcha! We want no part of your commie legislation that you force on us using blatantly illegitimate
    tactics. Disgusting.

    How quickly you forget how democrats obstructed when they were the minority. Can you say Tom Daschle? That weasely little twit.

    When democrats can’t get past the American people to pass their commie agenda, they just change the rules of the game. All the time.

    People are really getting fed up with liberals running roughshod over our human sovereignty and “fundamentally changing” our system of government. We want freedom back.

    • denniso

      Democrats obstructed? Didn’t they go along w/ Cheny’s war? The trillion $ drug plan of Bush’s? Welfare reform under Clinton? Allowed in 2 of the most conservative supreme court nominees from Bush?
      The Dems resisted on a few issues and went along w/ most of Bush’s
      program.

  • Claire

    Absolutely nothing or anyone will change my mind about believing all administrations, all politicians have screwed the American people. Both parties are full of so-called fools. The Liberals act like radical lefties and the Republicans act like radical right-wingers. Neither party has much to be proud of when you get down to the nitty gritty. Liberals are out of control and I will not support the Republican party until such time they straighten up their acts, and support candidates that are trustworthy and true Conservatives.

    • JeffH

      Claire, I agree that both parties have nothing to be proud of. Where I disagree is that the Democratic Socialist Party is so far left they’re in Europe. Obama is a Marxist radical, Pelosi can’t even be certified as being sane and Reid is hanging on to both of their coat tails looking for direction. As for Republicans being far right winggers, I think that most are RINO’s at best which leans them left. If I’m wrong, let me know.

      • Claire

        Jeff H — Notice I inserted “radical” lefties and “radical” right-wingers. To me, the use of the word radical in this particular situation means “far, far out there.” The radical right-wingers refer to the RINOs. Next time I will use the word “RINOs.”

  • kate8

    Claire, how are republicans acting like “radical right-wingers”? Seems to me they are mostly left-light.

    The ones who pretend to oppose the current trends – well, in comparison to what’s going on might be termed radical – to me are, at least, talking more like true conservatives. I still don’t trust them, though.

    We need conservatives to stand firm on conservative principles, and
    don’t cave and compromise with the left. Democrats NEVER compromise.
    They won’t even listen.

    • Claire

      kate8– To me, the politicians are so far off base that it is pathetic. No, they don’t and won’t listen. “Radical” right wingers describe the RINOs. I am using the word “radical” in this instance because they are radical in bashing and hating each other so much that they are out of control. The vast majority cannot think of anything else. They need to straighten up and start telling the people exactly what they stand for and how they intend to achieve the goals based upon the Constitution and upon which America was founded. They should be telling the American people how they intend to deal with all the issues at hand if they are elected. I don’t want to hear the bashing. I don’t have time for the petty crap, I want to hear common sense, and rationality. If a person is running for an office, this should not be too much to ask for.
      You made the comment that conservatives should stand for for conservative principles, I agree, but they need to get on the ball NOW.

I hope that someone gets around to telling you, that Obamacare is not free…… either you pay i9nflated rates or pay a $10,000.00 fine or go to prison or both that was a misconception for all you dummied down supporters that bought into the CHANGE and YES WE CAN… catch phrases baloney. Republican’s whether conservative or not like Mc Cain and Sarah Palin are garbage also… What We The People need is another party besides Democrat or Republican to take over and remove all the garbage in all three houses in D.C. and start all over again and set term limits also and this Democrat would say make me proud with a Moderate, Libertarian , American — just not Democrat or Republican . … James to you………

  • http://PersonalLiberty James

    Under Obama we are going down the tubes fast and John Mc Cain is helping Obama destroy us fasrer … There will be no new jobs unless you consider the Census Takers . Mc Cain will drag his feet on Border Fences as he puts greenbacks in his deep pockets and imports more Illegal Immigrants who will replace more American’s in the work force as he helps Obama secure Amnesty for all 83 Million Illegal Immigrants who will each be able to bring another 200 Family Members, relatives and Friends into the country. we should have had secure borders 20 years ago – every country in the world including Mexico have laws in place where they can shoot you or put you in prison at hard labor for ever – here we put them on Welfare, Social Security, or give them H-1/H-2 Visa High Paying jobs and lay off Americans .. and American’s get shot and killed on their land in border areas… seems that The People should rally and get their pick up trucks and rifles out like The Minutemen and secure our borders .. if our Politician’s are so hard pressed and overworked or u8nder paid or too lazy. hey lets get Harry and Pelosi to render BORDER PATROL ….. or fire them as impostors ……

  • 60′s Conservative

    For over 60 years Conservatives have made some very dire mistakes which have resulted in the Harry’s, Nancy’s and the Oboma’s. They are not the first and I am sure they will not be the last to try to eliminate Freedom from Our Great Nation. FDR, LBJ, Truman, Carter and Clinton come to mind. All these assaults on our Freedom could have possibly been reduced and or eliminated if we, as Conservatives, would have had the fore-thought to allow the legalization of Marijuana and other mind altering Drugs. This would have kept the likes of them in a complete state of euphoria thus eliminating their desire to control.

    Think about it, it may have worked!!

    Harry’s having a pretty rough time on his 3 day tour of rural Nevada. He stopped at a pizza joint up north and a lady asked him why Nevada is near the bottom in tax dollars returned from the feds. Instead of answering, he got his SEIU thugs that were accompanying him to drown her out shouting “Harry, Harry, Harry”. Then a driver spotted his campaign bus in Carson City and flipped Harry the bird. Here’s a nice picture from LV Review Journal showing the huge crowds welcoming him on the tour:

      Palin12, I’m sure the media counted 20-30 thousand for their Dirty Harry. Worst part of it is that Harry’s double vision makes the crowd looks twice as big.

      • Palin12

        Enthusiastic crowd, huh?

        • JeffH

          DUH! I’m still laughing. A clear picture of “death warmed over”.

          • Claire

            Those people sure don’t look happy. They look downright miserable.

          • JeffH

            The new poll numbers must have been posted showing Happy Harry getting beat by any of the other candidates. I think the closest HR came to any of them was -11. I’d look a little somber too with those nunbers.

    I just clicked on the picture. I see what you mean. Lively group.

    I’m still laughing, too.

    Sam, your wasting your time. Arguing with these fools is like arguing with the stepford wifes. They dont think for themselves, they are followers who buy into anything that their corporate paid senators tell them. It is futile, save your energy for important causes like supporting the senators who passed important health care reform legislation. I hope none of these hypocrytes should ever need the services of the health care package they so earnestly bash. Self-centered cowards. Why would anyone not care about the thousands who die every year because of insurance company profits? And in one breath they call themselves conservative christians. Makes me sick!

    • zack

      Stacy, you have lost your mind. Supporting the senators who voted for the HC reform?????They are already admitting that they all made a mistake, and are retiring, because they know their a$$ is out of there in November.
      Yea I would hope no one would have ever have to need it either, they would have ended up drinking the Jim Jones kool-aid. You self centered moron.

      If you are sick DRINK THE JIM JONES KOOL-AID. It would stop your tummy from hurting.Someone needs to give Obama a drink of it too:

      By the way what do you call yourself? Stupid Maybe for wanting to back the loosers?

      Play it again SAM;

    • DamnYankee

      Anybody and everybody HAS health care. If they are ill, they can go to an emergency room. The hospital CAN NOT turn them away, nor can they force them to pay for services rendered. That is where we who have medical insurance have to pay. We are billed for our bill,but also the bill is inflated to make up for those who can not or will not pay their bill. A $ or more for a single band aid or a single aspirin.

    Just because you liberals would sell your soul for dirt cheap, no need for your foul mouth here. That seems to be all you liberal cowards can do is name call and hide behind your key boards. What a bunch of cowards.

    Socialism billions dead, but they keep trying…
