Speaker Boehner tries to maintain control of his caucus.
For too many Americans, ignorance is bliss.
Cartoon: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney respond to the torture report.
Transition from totalitarianism to democracy does not happen overnight. It is a slow and painful process that often takes decades or centuries to achieve. If in doubt, take a look at the history of countries like the United States…
another great triumph for Barack (year round Santa) Obama (prince of poverty)….the new foreign policy guru!
Lying bullshit like your post lost big in 2012 – just thought you’d like to know.
Please pass the free shit and you’ve got my vote……it’s just like looting.
I understand why you are lying — you’re still sore from your November ass-whuppin’. I’m sure that getting your ass worked over by a black man hurt a lot the first time, but it REALLY must have smarted something awful the second time around!
Lying didn’t work for you then, and it won’t work for you now — but then you really don’t have much else to work with — do you?
Because I have empathy for even the most bigoted, sniveling loser, I’d like to offer you a few heartfelt words of comfort:
Obama is your leader.
He will be your leader for 4 more years.
He’ll be black the WHOLE TIME!!
Have a nice day!
corporate welfare? overpriced items forced upon the military by congress, oil subsidies, what?
And who’s your Santa for the two percent, you know, your job shippers who love slave wages, 13observer? Oh, of course it’s YOU and your bought off right wingers, right? You’re just another American idiot that thinks you white right wingers are the only ones that work or have a job. Ripping off the American quality of life for the middle class and the poor is what you believe in, while you rot in your pathetic state of hatred. Oh well, maybe one day you’ll wake up to the fact that you’re an unAmerican traitor to the American way.
That’s right, President Obama is responsible for everything bad that happens in this world, and Bush wasn’t responsible for anything. Fn troll.
Get used to it, you lost, still have 4 years to prepare. Not the robocop, or the Palin again, please. You may still have around the Ayn Rand Ryan, or maybe the Ricks (Sanctorum or Perry) of your choice. And U.S. will be rich, very rich. Sure.
stock market up, banks recovering, automotive industry recovery, private sector growth up (jobs) 13observer methinks the glass half full and your brain – well, not so much! You think you can do better than run for president instead of running your mouth!
Great reply to 13observer. He, onedonewrong and BozotheIdiot all like to write 1 or 2 sentence comments with no factual information just something they made up or worse heard on Fox. The three of them were all predicting a win for Romney and can’t stand that President Obama won reelection.
Please chill out dude! You need a reality check!
Hey T…he is a Repug….he doesn’t have the ability to recognize reality !
To bad it can’ be done peaceable without terror.
gar… unfortunately, these people do not operate that way. They havent for 1500 years. They won’t today. They won’t tomorrow.
“We can state with conviction, therefore, that a man’s support for absolute government is in direct proportion to the contempt he feels for his country.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville
Do not restrict my freedoms in the name of freedom or protecting me. The terrorists did not reck the constitution, the so called patriot act did!
willie… not sure how you came to that conclusion by my response to gar, but so be it. If you are so worried about the Patriot Act, why are you not pitching the same fit about the NDAA which Obozo signed and which authorizes arrest and detainment of American citizens in on US soil WITHOUT the right to due process or an attorney? The NDAA is the Patriot Act on steroids. What do I hear from you leftist freaks about that? crickets……… crickets……… crickets………. You guys on the left are just pure hypocrites. It’s no more complicated than that.
“The fact is that the average man’s love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty– and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.” — H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, A. D. 1923
Hey Bozo glad to see you still enjoy sending your inane and irrelevant quotes. The other day you made a claim that President Obama was the worst president in 100 years. Tell me how he’s worst than these former presidents – Warren G Harding
Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Richard M Nixon, Gerald Ford, George W Bush.
You like to make idiotic (but you name is Bozo the Idiot) statements without any factual data. Harding famous for the Teapot Dome scandal, Coolidge for ???, Hoover for the 1929 Stock Market crash and Great Depression, Nixon for Spiro Agnew, Watergate and Impeachment (oh that’s right he resigned), Ford for inflation, pardoning Nixon and WIN (Wip Inflation Now) and of course your favorite W for 2 wars, surplus to over a Trillion $ deficit, huge job loss. So how do these guys rate better than President Obama, the answer is that they don’t but you will never admit it because like other right wingers rather believe Fox than the truth.
Have a nice 4 MORE YEARS!!!
Billy boy… no president ever had an annual budget deficit larger than $1 Trillion. Bush’s largest annual deficit was about $500 Billion up to 2008 when you could throw in TARP (which Obozo voted for as a senator, by the way) to get to $1T. Obozo’s average annual budget deficit is about $1.5 TRILLION so far. Wait until the fool Obozo gets Obozocare going full bore and we are really effed! Obozo is a disaster for America. He seeks to “fundamentally transform America” into a Euro-Socialist country. We all know where that leads…. financial collapse. He has run up the national debt to $16 TRILLION, and even his own budget forcasts show the national debt will exceed $20TRILLION by 2016 when he is finally evicted from the White House.
He’s been a disaster in foreign policy. You think Watergate was bad? What about Fast & Furious – arming drug cartels in Mexico? What about Benghazi-gate where Obozo is covering up the fact that he’s been proving arms to Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria? What about him supporting the overthrow of allies so that radical Islamists from the Muslim Brotherhood can take over and form dictatorships that implement Sharia Law? What about him giving in to Russia and saying f**k you to our allies in Eastern Europe when it comes to missile defense? What about him signing the NDAA that authorizes warrantless arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens without due process or right to an attorney?
Billyboy, Obozo is a complete and utter failure and a disaster for America. It’s not anymore complicated than that.
“Tell Vladimir, after my next election, I will have more flexibility.” – Barack Hussein Obozo caught on microphone promising Vladimir he will screw America after he does not have to worry about the stupid voters again.
Hello OB1. deT is dead. Who cares what he said about a govt when he lived in a different century? Whom was he speaking to? It is all relative now, isn’t it?
Hi Doc! I hope you are well today. Now, your post to me brings up an interesting questions:
Do you think that because someone lived long ago that we have nothing to learn from them?
Do you think that all learning in today’s day is new? That there is nothing to learn from the past?
I know how you’ll answer, Doc. The sensible way. That is, of course there is learning from the past. Of course there is learning from history and the great thinkers throughout history.
Have you every heard of John Locke? Charles de Montesquieu? Adam Smith? Plato? I know you will not say that because they are from centuries ago that the lessons they taught and their philosopies are irrelevant today.
Karl Marx was the father of socialism. Do you think his philosophies are irrlelevant today? Do you think the concept of “proletariat vs. bourgeois”, rich vs. poor, are not relevant in today’s political discourse? Of course they are. Listen to Obozo every time he opens his mouth.
Have nice day, Doc!
“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” — Charles de Montesquieu
History is just repeating itself. Those who are in rebellion against the tyrant turn into the tyrant.
They’ve been fighting in the streets … With their children at their feet
And the morals, that could be worshipped may soon be gone …
And the Men who spurred them on, sit in judgement of all wrong …
They decide, and the shotgun sings the song … Change it had to come …
They knew it all along , but Their History ain’t changed, and Their World looks just the same …
And the parting on the left … Is now the parting on the right …
And the beards have all grown longer overnight …
And just like yesterday, they will get on their knees, five times and pray …
They won’t be fooled again … Meet the new Boss, same as the old Boss …
The actuality of choice [freedom vs. slavery] is redefined by every culture–each regards its predecessor w/stark amazement & contempt…looming on the horizon is a novidium of on-line opinion-sampling & encrypted balloting, meme-dialectical conflict resolution, TMS guilt-indices, 3D printing, energy-on-demand, robotization, syntelligence, synlife, planetary biome restoration, Mars terraformation, downloading mind/memory to clones/storage/transmission–pursued on the principle of quicquid agunt homines [what man can dream of, man can do].
The cosmos beckons–toward probabilistic lifespans, new forms of H. sap & hyperluminal conquest.
Caveat: thermageddon, ecollapse, lex martialis mundial.
Your reaction understandable…75-80 years ago respondent’s village peers & family used to ask, “where does he get these ideas?”
In a century or so, many such ‘Delphi Projections’ will have become faits accomplis–if man survives ‘parchment’, famine & lex cannibalis.
Enjoy the show…
In passing, how about Hillary & Liz Warren in 2016?…ideally, of course, a peg-leg Jewish lesbian, if only to terrify the Wrong!
And now…. the REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

Well, OK. It’s not a cartoon. In honor of Pearl Harbor day and the Americans that gave their lives there. From all of us, left and right, we say ‘Thank You’!
“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.” PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN
First post of yours I agree with, please change your name, I never disrespected any President no matter the affiliation, we are after all, all Americans.
Guitar shreddder? You are right about respect. Imagine you graduate from two of the most prestigious colleges in the country, top of your class at harvard law and some dumb S>O>B> wants to see your grades and your birth certificate. Man Joe I got to tell you some of these guys make Gump look like Einstein!
Thank you Joe. As to name change, I reserve my right to express my views of the clown in chief, Obozo. Thank you for your service and thank you for your defense of my rights to call the President a clown named Obozo. I mean that sincerely, Joe. Here’s a quote inside a pic that embodies my feelings on this topic. [click image to enlarge]
Have a great weekend, my friend!
“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.” – Ronald Reagan
Is that all you right wing idiots got ? Ronald Reagan? Who sold misiles to the enemy and broke the law again by giving the proceeds to the Contras? Who trippled the deficit and began the union-busting bonanza which is still alive and well today? Is that the best you got? He did bring pride back in the military, I’ll give you that. He also reduced V.A. compensation for a huge group of veterans!
Raygun & Shrub II saddled us w/87 trillion in unfunded liabilities & set the stage for dictatorship…US census-criteria demo up to 888,000 Iraqi fatalities [& 2M displaced], thanks to post 9/11 Shrub-Chaney panic v-a-v “how can we prove we’re on top of this thing?”…solution? Saddam has WMDs: Knight-
Ridder staff & couple others blew that lie out of the water but nobody would listen–least of all the ‘liberal’ NYT & WAPO…read Hitchens on the sliminess of Raygun, incl. 200K butchered like dogs in Guatemala [y paises vecines]…114 journalists/peasants/labor-activists executed during current quinquennium.
Bona fides: respondent is more than a raving futurist; also octogenarian militant-atheist 11th-Airborne Korea vet, pushing Populist reform, e.g.
–public financing of [short] campaigns
–nat’l encrypted voter ID
–encrypted ballot [paper receipt: no more Gore-Florida 2K or Kerry-Ohio 20024]
–Electoral College reform or abolition
–abrogation of filibuster
–bipartisan panels to block gerrymandering
–labor/consumer majorities on corp/bank boards of directors [as per Germany]
–Glass-Stiegall III to entertain Wall St [derivatives, credit swaps, trick-leverages]
–91% marginal taxation of income over 2M [vide prosperous 1946-62 era]
–confiscation of inherited wealth above 5M [retro to 1981]
–crash investment: solar/aeolian/geothermal/tidal/marithermal
–crash development: villages of the Global South [erstwhile 3rd World]
–single-payer/gratis global contraception, innoculation, general prophylaxis
–orbital monitoring of fish property zones
–crash program to punish abuse of women/kids [FGM a fortiori]
–rebuild/securitization of roads, bridges, sewers, power grid, air-traffic control, banks, IT
–upgrade Stuxnet; explore means to obliterate criminal hackers
–double investment in basic science + applix like solar-storm defense. space elevator, syntels, shape-shifters, Colonia Martialis, d/loading mind/memory, etc
–outlaw anti-evolution, pro-religion propaganda in public schools
Just for starters…
Your mama must go!
willie…. you’re very clever …………………………………………………………………
………………………………….for a 10 year old…. just sayin
Have a nice day, and remain oblivious!
“The difference between being stupid and being a fool: A stupid person at least has an idea about their own inadequacies. The fool is oblivious to them, and is more inclined to believe their own fantasies and lies as truth.” – ObozoMustGo
Will we ever be at peace? Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God? It takes two to tango. Mind your own business. Fix America before you fix the world. All we are saying is give peace a chance. Bring the troops home. Protect the U.S.A clean up that drug war mess south of the boarder. Legalize and tax pot. Get rid of social Nazis and let the people pursue happiness. End the empire — we are in 184 countries bring that number down to one. The world can do without us, believe it or not. Get rid of tolls, free up the roads. Respect your elders. Solve the financial problems not by raising age requirements but by raising the money to keep them going and stop the unlimited spending on pentagon and CIA – how much is enough? Who will be the last American to die in Afghanistan and for what? I served 7.5 years in the Army and 24 in the US dept. Treasury ; played football, ran cross country, rode my harley from coast to coast; have three black belts and I live in the Bronx ny so do not give me any bullshit about liberals, food-stamps, birth certificates; and all of your fox news bull. The world is changing; lead , follow or get out of the way! Stop the whine about Obama – you lost period!
