Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government. "We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things. (Snip) Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House
Just what are all of the Ron Paul supporters going to do now? By failing to vote, they have helped destroy our country. They are no different than the Obamabots. Their loyalty to this idiot cost us the election.
The country is neither gone nor far gone. We survived the FDR years and we'll survive this. We are more resilient than we credit ourselves. A lot of the youngsters who voted in Obama have yet to feel his socialist lash. So take heart. Don't abandon hope.
I believe that there are Americans that want to see the country burn down. Romney would have stopped the bleeding but probably not reversed the decay. I personally think Romney would have become more conservative as President. But purists who stayed home want a full reset no matter what the human cost. I think we collapse at some point if congress can't prevent a full blown dictatorship.
Anyone who follows this website realizes that any article on a community that is not white has comments that paint broad brush assumptions about them as a group rather than individuals. For example, the Jewish Community is very intelligent and savvy and see right through the fawning "support" of Israel and Jews by the right wing of the Republican Party, most particularly Sean Hannity. There are 12 Jewish Members in the House of Representatives - 0 are Republican. There are 26 Jewish Members in the Senate - 1 (Eric Cantor) is Republican. And people wonder why the Jewish Community votes for the Democrat Party. Another example, there are lots of people of Indian and Chinese origin who are fiscally conservative. But the religious rhetoric of the R's scares them. It's time for the Republicans to face reality. Keep religion and abortion out of politics. They are personal matters. The US is a secular country not a Christian country... if it was the latter, the founding fathers would have said so in the Constitution.
Read some religious commentaries #10. Behaviourly, Jews have historically assisted in their own destruction. American liberal Jews for the most part could not care less about Israel. Supporting Israel has been the only thing between America and its own final punishment from God.
It is like Rush said, people in this country voted for Santa Claus, not for the opportunity to work hard for themselves. It is all about getting the freebies, no matter the consequences.
#10, cool story bro', and while we'd all love to hear more, submitting the exact same post to multiple articles (like your post #5 in the 'Mitt Romney Had Every Chance...' article) is called serial posting . . . spamming. We don't do that at Ldot.
#10, to use a Christian illustration, you strain at gnats and swallow camels in your own broad brushed assumptions. You are advising conservatives to keep religion and abortion out of politics, because those are "personal matters". Yet, you apparently have no problem with leftists introducing those same "personal matters" into politics on their terms, and their politics into religion through the use of political power to force religious organizations to go against their religious beliefs regarding contraception and abortion.
You tell white, social conservatives that non-white, fiscal conservatives fear them. Surely we are not to believe that the so-called christian liberation theology being implemented through policies of the leadership in the Democrat Party is less "scary" to them because Obama has enough pigmentation to darken his skin.
Conservatives aren't the threat to freedom and liberty.
After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn´t write any such note. Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip. The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."
A five-year legal battle waged by a group of Benedictine monks against the Louisiana funeral industry was laid to rest Tuesday by the U.S. Supreme Court, which let stand an appellate ruling striking down a state law giving funeral directors a monopoly on the sale of caskets to the public. “It’s a great day for us, and we’re very thankful that this five-year battle is over,” said Abbot Justin Brown, who leads St. Joseph Abbey, a community of 34 monks whose primary work is educating future priests at St. Joseph Seminary near Covington and running a retreat center.
It seems like another life. At the height of his corporate career, Tom Palome was pulling in a salary in the low six-figures and flying first class on business trips to Europe. Today, the 77-year-old former vice president of marketing for Oral-B juggles two part-time jobs: one as a $10-an-hour food demonstrator at Sam´s Club, the other flipping burgers and serving drinks at a golf club grill for slightly more than minimum wage. While Palome worked hard his entire career, paid off his mortgage and put his kids through college, like most Americans he didn´t save enough for retirement. Even many affluent
Senatobia, MS - A jogger says three men attacked him in retaliation for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. The attack happened on Highway 51 in Senatobia, Miss., Sunday night. The victim told News Channel 3 and investigators the men drove up to him, asked if he knew who Trayvon Martin was, then forced him into a car. At some point, the man says the men told him, “This is for Trayvon.” The man was badly beaten, then dropped off on Cut Off Road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss. The man, who is white, told police the men who attacked him are black,
OXFORD — Investigators say they haven´t found any ricin in the house of a Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge. FBI Agent Brandon Grant, testifying in federal court Monday, said a Friday search of Paul Kevin Curtis´ house in Corinth, Miss., did not turn up ricin or ingredients for the poison. A search of Curtis´ computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Federal investigators believe the letters were mailed by Curtis, an Elvis impersonator who family members say suffers from bipolar disorder.
GRANITE BAY-Dozens waiting in line for a chance to get free food at Chick-fil-A, but the first customer won’t even be served until tomorrow. It’s got that Black Friday feel out here with tents and coolers and chairs for people all waiting for a tasty treat. More than 100 people set up camp at the new Granite Bay Chick-fil-A. “it’s crazy,” said Natalie Woodmass, a Chick-fil-A customer. People starting lining up in the dark. “It’s fun, it’s free food for a year,” said Darek Daszynsky.
Let´s see LeBron James do this. Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Miss., made an incredible front-flip half-court shot Thursday night at halftime of the school´s men´s basketball game that became an instant Internet sensation. The ball was placed on the floor at midcourt. Arnau approached it with a running start, did a front-flip, grabbing the ball while she was upside down, and then launching it toward the basket while her legs swung forward. Swish! "I really don´t practice at all," Arnau told the AP in a phone interview.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
