Stupid is thinking that the Greek way is better than the Dutch way.
So according to Trumptman, the auto bailouts were solely for the purpose of "buying" the election. According to him, we should have shut them down and added all those people to the unemployment lines. That would have gone over well! Like BR points out, if you want your party to be competitive, you need a better grasp on reality.
Your economic claims ring terribly flawed when you consider the FACT that the European countries that are in the deepest crisis are the European countries that have gone the "austerity" path. The problem with austerity past a certain point is that once the government stops spending, businesses stop spending, and once businesses stop spending, individuals stop spending. This is exactly what happened in Greece. Forget the fiscal cliff, this is the fiscal brick...
Did or did not the Republicans make a vow to oppose and obstruct? Nothing Obama did was hyperpartisan. No wonder you don't understand how Obama could have won re-election. You've bought into the bullshit just like the majority of the other 50%. Read again. Obama's policies have been center right from the beginning. Presenting a Republican created and decade-long Republican endorsed health care plan instead of public health care option of any sort is not "hyper-partisan"...
I'm absolutely sure the people of Oklahoma or Kentucky would vote to outlaw interracial marriage if put to a vote. Should they have that right? Please explain again why same sex marriage is any different, without reverting to the "definition of marriage" bullshit argument.And I assume you would as vehemently oppose DOMA and other national anti-marriage measures as strongly as you would oppose a "Roe" style legalization?
Exactly.I find it hilarious that people like Newt Gingritch, who has a certain "history" with marriage, declare that same sex marriage will ruin the institution of marriage. Right.Quite to the contrary, I believe same sex marriage will strengthen marriage, as it redeclares that marriage is an act out of love, and not out of duty. Even heterosexual marriage will gain from this.
We all know that no matter how far right Obama goes (and he goes plenty) the obstructionists will oppose him at every turn. This needs to be stopped, and it can only be stopped by the voters. Obama needs to take reasonably centrist policy positions, as he has for four years, and EVERY time there is a Republican filibuster, he needs to go on television and address the public. He needs to state what Congress is trying to do and that they have a majority on this position....
Sorry, my wife won't join.
Switching to widescreen format would be the very opposite of an "improvement".
Looks like measure 30 will pass, thank God. I support prop 38 as well but unfortunately it hasn't a chance in hell the way it's worded.It's likely my daughter will go to UC and I can't afford to pay the $30k per year that Republican "austerity" proponents are pushing on us. The UC system was created in California as a constitutionally guaranteed affordable higher education plan. The Cal State system was constitutionally guaranteed to be free!
