Now that things have settled down a bit in Washington, D.C., do you think it will be business as usual?

  1. Yes, more gridlock
  2. Short-lived improvements
  3. No, Congress embarrassed itself

Ok, loco, and what do you call this:"centerish, back to 1985? We are in 2013. That's 28 YEARS later." What is that saying about glass houses? Since you can pull up an article about a blogger going on a red site, how about the multiple bloggers that were mentioned in the Gitit's blog? There were a whole lot more than one. Now, since you are here, could you please find out who just took over BDGI's blog. The last post is another person. This has been the tag-team blog for the past couple of weeks or more. It is obvious from the difference in writing style and the difference in intelligence levels that the hateful bdgi is not blogging now. So, who is the new bdgi and why do they blog from out of state? At least dusty is from Mandan. We have the right wing attack bloggers groups right here in river city.

"Despite being nothing like what I portrayed on the blog I will say that I was no more extreme than a lot of others there. My only advantage was that of being able to write a coherent English sentence."

Yes, Virginia, people pretend. They cheat, lie, extort, take advantage, belittle, obscure. You name the activity, people have done it.

Is this a newsflash or something?

"At one point, some of the other bloggers that I was engaging in flame wars with started discussing who I was and one person even openly speculated that I was a liberal trying to incite hate and discontent, which was totally true. I berated them with hurt feelings etc...."

billygitmo, that was an interesting tidbit about Fox. Now here's one from Daily Kos:

9-25-13 "I've never revealed this publicly before, but I blogged on Redstate for awhile and actually made it to the top of their rec list for a couple of days. I portrayed myself as a rabidly religious fundamentalist and I got a lot of attention. During the Republican primaries I advocated the nomination of the religious conservatives eventually encouraging the nomination of Santorum...."

To show a pattern, loco, I used an older example of Republican lies and then proceeded to follow up with current republican lies on Veterans. This ran from Reagan to Bush to the current Republicans who continue to cut things from the Veterans but will fight to the death to keep the Big Oil subsidies, huge tax breaks for the rich, and anything big corporations want. It shows a pattern of lies and deceit from the Republicans on Veterans issues. It is just a part of the big lies spread by Republicans so their tea party followers have something to hang on to.

centerish, back to 1985? We are in 2013. That's 28 YEARS later.

Talk about holding political grudges...

Republicans are NO MATCH for this kind of...what IS the word I'm looking for...yes, it will do here...for this kind of hatred of an opposing party.

Have a great Monday, centerish

"Oh, and bdgi is a runaway chicken."

This leftist comment is so typical. What could I return?

I think it's better than being a runaway turkey. Do you know how much damage those birds can cause?

That was fun...

raj, Dems have forever used the phrase "you can't legislate morality."

If Obamacare is supposed to be so "good" and "fair" for everyone, why isn't that a considerable example of "legislating morality?"

"The Bush tax GIFT's were extended when the Republicans blackmailed the Administration into extending it by withholding approval of an extension of the unemployment benefits at Christmas time."

centerish, if you believe this assertion, especially that "blackmail" part, then you are the biggest administration apologist on this forum.

Did or did not President Obama have the use of his hand in order to sign the legislation? He signed it; he owns it. At least that is the liberal standard applied to EVERY Republican clear back to Reagan. Why is there no standard at all for Democrats?

If people want to throw the word "blackmail" around, perhaps it could be used in describing some of the recent activity in DC, huh?

I'll do your post for you, centerish...

"The Reps blackmailed the Dems and the president...until they didn't get their way."

Saved you a few words off your keyboard. You're welcome.

raji: "loco---An attempt at neutering the opposition? Thanks anyway, I call'm like I see 'em.

"Tolerance for some, not for all."

If my little posts was to be considered an attempt at "neutering the opposition," it seems to have been most feeble indeed.

Keep up the hyperbole and jargon as it suits your purpose, raj, and have a great Monday.

You want more, Knucklehead? There is tons out there. Oh, and by the way, it is estimated that the services to the veterans from the effects of the Liar Iraq war will be over three trillion and I am sure the republicans will be against that. Such a loser you are.

Bush Administration cuts $172 million allotted for educating the children of military personnel. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget cut $172 million of impact aid funding. Impact aid funding assists school districts by making up for lost local tax revenue from tax-exempt property, such as military bases. These education cuts will especially affect school-age children of troops serving in Iraq who reside on military bases. ("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)
