Move Over, Obamacare: Impeachment Is The Right’s New Lost Cause

Share

Sometimes politics is like high-stakes poker. If you look around the table after a few hands and you can’t tell who’s the pigeon, citizen, chances are it’s you: the guy who plunked down $26.95 for a book called Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office.

Yeah, you with the “Impeach Obama” bumpersticker on your car. The guy standing on a freeway overpass waving a “Honk for Impeachment” sign. You may as well go around in a little bird’s nest hat, like Donald Duck’s eccentric friend Gyro Gearloose.

Because it not only ain’t going to happen, but the people peddling this nonsense don’t even want it to happen. Not really. They’re just making a buck off people who can’t count and running a classic misdirection play.

It’s actually a good sign if you think about it.

Basically because the more Republicans you hear talking about impeachment, the closer the party has come to surrender on the big issues they claim to care about.

Like it or not, the possibility of repealing “Obamacare” ended when the Supreme Court found it Constitutional and the president won re-election. You’d think after 40 — count ’em, 40 — fruitless votes to abort the law, that message might start to sink in. We still have majority rule in this country.

But no, it hasn’t sunk in at all. Like a baseball team demanding to play the eighth game of the World Series, GOP hardliners have come up with yet another plan to force the president’s hand. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has called for something he infelicitously called a “grassroots tsunami” to make Obama relent. More rationally consequent party leaders, however, are fearful of the terrible consequences of shutting down the government or defaulting on the national debt in a vain attempt to kill the Affordable Care Act.

Neither tactic would accomplish the ostensible goal and would doom Republican chances to regain Congress or the White House for the forseeable future. More than 70 percent of voters, including 53 percent of Republicans, oppose a government shutdown. A debt default could have catastrophic economic consequences. However, many GOP politicians are equally fearful of the wrath of Tea Party zealots to whom they’ve made undeliverable promises.

Hence the melodramatic appeal of impeachment, a totally unserious threat its sponsors hope hotheads will see as more decisive. So what if it makes the United States look like a Banana Republic? That’s the form of government that fools prefer to democracy, with its tedious committee meetings, quorum calls and compromises. Just think how happy an impeachment battle would make the impresarios and talking heads of cable news.

    The right discovered the US Constitution five years ago and have embraced it the way they embrace the Holy Bible –which is to say they pick a few phrases they like, embellish them with some made-up ideas they heard on tv, and begin using it to rhetorically beat their opponents over the head.

    Ask them what legal basis there might be for impeaching Obama and you’ll get a barrage of nonsense about the 10th Amendment and gubberment overreach and Kenyan socialists imposing Sharia law…

    If it wasn’t for a judiciary packed full of loyal Bushies these ideas would get the ridicule they deserve.

      Great post. I have said for a long time that the right tries to make the Constitution and the Bible say what they want them to say. The Constitution
      and the Bible are not like a cafeteria where you pick what you like.

    The far right is going to need a lot more than bumper stickers to impeach President Obama. For starters, proposing and signing legislation the Tea Party does not like is not part of the articles of impeachment. In fact, it may be grounds for impeaching those who are wasting taxpayers monies pursuing quixotic chimeras designed to satisfy their flock even when they know they cannot bring their promises to a satisfactory conclusion. The “IRS scandal” backfired on Issa and the GOP, Fast and Furious, while poorly executed, was a classic sting operation designed to find out who was selling arms to the Mexican drug cartels, and if Benghazi becomes an issue, so should 9/11/01 and the dozen attacks against U.S. diplomatic missions in the Bush era.
    Impeachment is one of the GOP’s favorite threats whenever a popular democrat is in the White House. They might as well add to their daily lexicon because there is a distinct probability of Democrats residing in the WH for many years to come.

Unfortunately, those such as lana, tax, and yourself just think anyone that is a not a disciple of your evil is just something to wipe your ass on. So, I just think there is absolutely no value to anything of the tripe you say.

            No, I am not privileged, but I do have a very bright mind. Compared to you I am about as bright as sunshine as you are as dim as the dark side of the moon.

            It really show the depths that filth like you dwells in when you try to make fun of intelligence. Really, for a Teatard, smart is stupid and an IQ ten points under normal is the new “smart.” Sorry, but really, if nothing else, that will be the death of the Teatard party. AND it will come soon. Real soon if the Kock’s money pulls out.

            You have no idea what Joe Biden says, you are a functionally illiterate and mentally challenged sack of shit that is spoon fed your nonsense by Faux or Rush or some other Kocksucker. So all you know is what some other shit sack tells you.

            Think about it, if you came out of your closet, you might actually find a community that actually welcomes you. Yeah, your Teatard cohorts will despise you, but you might find other people that are more reasonable. You could give up all the hate and actually join normal society and become part of the human race. Of course, you are stuck being a frightened, hard-hearted little Kocksucker that has to LIE to everyone and, what is worse, to yourself, and that is all you will ever be.

    Right now a bunch of Republicans are taking aim at their collective feet with this one. Yes, impeaching that man who had the audacity to be elected by a clear majority of the people of the United States, and who had the further audacity to be reelected (and not by a less than 1% squeaker like the last incumbent reelection) plays well in the gap-toothed backwaters represented by these clowns. But even someone as hard core as Rush Limbaugh recognizes that this would not be successful.

    Issa has stated it’s his mission to impeach Obama. Thus, the congressman has subject the public and the administration to a series of worthless, but expensive, hearings. While his stated reason is to expose Obama’s wrongdoing and impeach him, the truth is he likes the press coverage. These Republicans are power-hungry grandstanding, showmen. On the upside, the chance of anyone impeaching Obama are slim to none, with slim on life support.

    Also, while the right talks constantly how the Obama Administration is violating the Constitution, I doubt any of them know much beyond the 2nd Amendment. Forget them having read or understood the body of the document or any of the amendments. If they had, the post office wouldn’t be in the shape it’s in. Also there wouldn’t have been a fight over the Obama Care requirement that birth control be provided free as preventive care.

    Remember what the first thing they cited was? This requirement violated our 1st Amendment “freedom of religion.” Wrong. The 1st Amendment actually says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” which means Freedom FROM a state sponsored or sanctioned religion. Therefore, every time the right has passed laws that ban abortion and/or hormonal birth control they are in fact imposing their religious beliefs upon the rest. Because I can guar-an-damn-tee you my religion allows both abortion and hormonal birth control without comment. FWIW, it’s always surprised me that when these laws are challenged in court violation of the 1st Amendment wasn’t one of the issues cited.

        Obama hasn’t disrupted the functioning of government. The Republicans who believe it’s my way or the highway and have stopped the Congress and Senate from doing their job are the problem. Aside from wanting to repeal the ACA, or failing that defund it, the Republicans have not functioned as a legislative body.

        The Republicans have a big problem when their only offer for solving our economic problems is to weaken or do away with Social Security and Medicare. What’s ignored is these two programs aren’t entitlements. Given the public pays into these systems, SS is closer to an annuity and Medicare a prepaid medical plan. However, if the Republicans truly wanted to ensure these programs stayed solvent, they’d remove the cap on earnings taxed; so even if you earned a $100M, you’d still pay into SS and FICA. Also, if a person’s younger than 65, unearned income should be treated as earned income re SS and FICA.

        Furthermore, if the Republicans were truly serious about a balance budget and paying off deficit, they would propose the following: stop oil and big agribusiness subsidies, get rid of capital gains–yes, that’ll affect me–and do away with deferred interest along with a host of other special tax bennies for either the super rich or special groups such as hedge fund managers. In fact, there should be no difference between earned and unearned income. These changes alone would help balance our budget. Then if you added in my suggestion re FICA and SS caps, we’d resolve a host of issues.

          Boehner made a statement this morning about cutting Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare.

            Worse, Boehner is so frightened of being challenged in a primary, he’s caved to the extreme right and has threatened Obama with the following outrageous choice: dismantle Medicare and Social Security or risk the House refusing to raise the debt limit. IMO, the moment Boehner threatened the full faith and credit of the US in order to get his way goes beyond bullying and crosses over to treason.

You take an easily traceable idea, like who said they were a teacher, and act like you do not know who said it. That is another, specific tactic of Ed’s. So I know this could be off-base, but are you in fact Ed, just spoofing the blog again?

            No, I do not like liars, bullies, and general scumbags. So I can have no feeling for you at all, except contempt. As for secretly admiring you, no sense of humor could possibly justify that as a joke. That would be like admiring John Wayne Gacy for his ability to make friends with young guys.

            I have an over active sense of humor. I laugh very easily about just about anything, even tragedy. However, the sickness that IS Ed, is not the least little bit funny.

            The difference between you and me that is most profound, is quite simply that have consistently told the truth, while you consistently lie.

            There is one hilarious part to your post. The posturing that you are “in control” and are laughing is so falsely stupid as to be ludicrous. You have NO sense of humor, but as a person and a poster, you are a childish joke.

            It was refreshing to read an intelligent commentary written by Lovefacts after all the petty namecalling, four-letter words, etc. Many are concerned with bullying (name-calling) currently taking place in our schools where some students sadly even commit suicide. Where do students see examples of bullying? Just look at some of the previous posts. I was always taught that if one must resort to name-calling and using four letter words to express oneself, it shows a lack of command of the English language.

Maybe they could give tax payer the job of picking up and disposing of the dead people. Perhaps he just doesn’t understand that the majority of people on Medicaid are working poor, disabled or children and the elderly who need assistance to cover the Medicaid co-pays and deductibles. Perhaps he isn’t aware that it is nearly impossible for a poor white or black MAN or WOMAN to even receive Medicaid unless they are the caretaker of a child. Guess he has a set of facts all his own. Wonder who he thinks pays for the care of foster children or children in the care of the state?

            What, if everyone had Medicaid and no one had to pay for Medical Care? Why only a certain group get it free and others have to struggle to pay since they aren’t considered poor. Let’s be fair to the tax payers and let everyone take advantage of this free Health Care too. Those with an Advantage Plan fall into a dougnut hole and have to pay 100% until they have met a certain requirement, so it does get expensive, when you think only the poor should get it free. I feel it’s not fair to you and all the people that have to pay, while others get free Healthcare.

            If everyone had Medicaid that would be a single payer system. It would be perfectly OK with me. I doubt however that I will see it in my lifetime. I am covered my Medicare and couldn’t be happier with my government run healthcare. Oh, that’s right it isn’t government run, just government provided with the help of the tax I paid for 40 years. Actually, my Dr. runs my care with funds from Medicare. Tax payer, I don’t think its fair that I help pay for wars I didn’t support starting with Vietnam and pretty much everything since or that my taxes fund the Patriot Act. We don’t get to pick and choose all the rules and laws, that’s not how a representative democracy works. You win some and you lose some. I don’t have any children or Grandchildren in public schools and my own son wet to private school which I struggled to paid for as a single Mom. However, at no time then or now did I believe I should get my tax money that supports public schools back or believe the government should take money away from public schools and give it to me. It was my choice and since I believe an educated public and public schools help make us a better society, I gladly support schools. Even though I am now on Medicare I still own a business that pays taxes, some that helps to help support the ACA and I do it gladly. I’m happy that so many people who have been denied coverage will finial be able to buy insurance. Is the ACA perfect, not by a long shot but given a chance to work, it will be far better than what is out there today.

            I am on Medicare also, but chose a Medical Advantage plan such as Humana Gold Plus because those using the Original Medicare have to pay 20% up front to their doctor. A doctor may charge $140.00 and your co-payment would be about $28.00. I pay No co-payment and $30.00 to a Specialist, so it works out fine as long as you don’t enter phase two because you have to pay 100% unless you get Generic Medicine.

            I have a supplement rather than an Advantage Plan. I pay nothing other than my 140.00 annual deductible, If I go to the hospital. Otherwise 0. The cost of both my Medicare payment and my supplement are for less than we were paying for my coverage through my husband’s plan with his employer. Fortunately I don’t take any medications on a routine basis so thus far, the prescription plan I have, the most basic, works for me and I can upgrade if I need to.. Be careful of the Advantage plans, while you are in the sign up period right now, you might want to look at a supplement.

        Actually the Repub’s intentional disruption of government is seditious and could be interpreted as treason. As such it is an impeachable offense. If we could clean out about 100 Reps. and maybe a dozen Senators, then our government would start working again. Unfortunately there are too many like minded or weak kneed politicians to sustain the charges.

        In other words, the inmates (Repubs) are in charge of the asylum (Congress). In order for the hospital to effectively treat the body politic, those inmates need to be secured back in their rubber rooms in the basement, and forgotten.

      Other reasons for distractions like this are the need to deflect attention from the fact that today’s GOP is devoid of ideas on how to solve our problems, and the need to tell a gullible and hateful base the garbage they want to hear.

    Champions of distraction is the title that republicans should wear. Instead of coming up with an alternative to Romney/Obama care that would rally most voters, or a plan to fix the 60,000 bridges that are in need of repair, with 6000 in need of imminent repair, or our interstate system, or how do we pair down the military after Afghanistan, or how do we replenish FEMA funds or control costs in Medicare, the Tea party can only come up with an impeach the president cry as their rallying point. I haven’t heard one republican plan to fix anything wrong in the country. Other than trying to defund health care reform what has the house actually done to make people’s lives better? Answer Nothing!
    Now not satisfied with the reports on Benghazi, or fast and furious, or the manufactured IRS issue that show no wrong doing, impeachment becomes the latest crusade. Now it will give Issa one more try to pull the president down. So instead of standing around with their pitch forks in hand, this issue will give the Tea party something to do, since they’ve done absolutely nothing.

What is the republican plan to replace Obama care. Let’s you and I debate it. I spent 10 yrs on the bd of a teaching hospital and 34 yr is public health, and would love to test your knowledge of health care. Or let’s debate climate change, or the draw down in Afghanistan.

            I mentioned Watergate not because it happened under any Democratic president (Nixon the crook was a Republican), but because I wanted to address your comment to the effect that there is no evidence (I say, yet !) that Hillary or Holder lied to Congress. The evidence in Watergate developed during a period of 2 years, my friend. That was my point.

            Having cleared that, I will not shy away from discussing with you any and all of the subjects you mention. Specifically in regards to health care, having NOT being in public health, I can offer you some common-sense ideas and alternatives but I am in no position to be “tested”, as you so emphatically want, as to my “knowledge of health care”.

            The only way I would agree to be “tested on my knowledge of health care” would be if you took note of the following facts:
            I have been (still am) a practicing structural engineer for the last 42 years and would love to test your knowledge of stability of structures, the effect of “creep” on concrete cantilevers, time-dependent deflections of post-tensioned slabs, and soil-structure interactions. Do you now see what you are getting yourself into, my friend?

            Since I am not yet retired ( I still have a few buildings to fall down on me !) I can not engage you right now but will do so in the next 48 hours. Fair enough ?

            I would love to hear your common sense alternatives to health care. I mentioned that because all you tea party types want to repeal it. As for Issa’s committees they all have fizzled out. The only new channel that still runs anything about it is FOX so I’m sure you’re a watcher. FOX has become an arm of the Republican party with Karl Rove as a commentator. I remember him as one who helped lie about WMD’s in Iraq and also about him being behind the outing of a CIA agent which is treason. All because her husband on a fact finding trip found no yellow cake in Africa supposedly used by Saddam to build nukes, which undermined Cheney’s assertion that a mushroom cloud would be over NYC. Speaking about impeachment why wasn’t W impeached for that giant lie, or how Cheney who was once CEO of Halliburton gave them a no bid 6 billion defense contract. Both should have been indicted at least. My son who was in the Navy had to buy his uniforms from them BTW.

So this nonsense about “solid oppostion” is more of a self-delusion by a really stupid Sociopath than an argument worth consideration. Oh yeah, a rather stupid, RACIST Sociopath.

      As well, I have to laugh over that “Biden factor.” Scum like angelsinca have let Faux Noise convince them of so many untruths that it is ridiculous. And it has hurt the Pubs badly. While Faux tries to make a fool of Biden, as well as Obama, most people I have met like Biden and the way he talks. Bad mouthing him with lies is costing the Pubs votes, not gaining them.

            We are going to have some problems with you. They are
            entirely of your own making. Ed claimed,
            as an insult, to be MY teacher. Even he did not claim to be a real
            teacher. He claimed that only a couple of posts above. So maybe, I should carry on about something
            that is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than English usage. That is reading
            comprehension. The ability to read and understand is of critical importance here. You do not seem to those abilities.

            You are making a snap judgment based on your failure to gain
            knowledge. Ed and his like came in to these blogs with an attitude of
            “educating” those they do not agree with. They continue to
            troll in a most disgusting manner. They are only here to disrespect,
            bully, and disrupt. They are pleased when a conversation breaks up, and
            especially so, when they get the last word.

            If you have read from the beginning, you would find that I have been totally
            honest about what I am doing, and how, and why. That is certainly not
            what Ed has done. If all you have come for is to be a troublesome waste
            of time, have at. Otherwise gain some knowledge and skill.

            Though I am all for civility and good English usage, these blogs are about the
            exchange of ideas. They are not a high school grammar class with you as
            the star pupil. If you had noticed, I rarely, if ever make a fool of
            anyone over grammar. I do not care as long as they are disseminating
            honest and sincere ideas. If someone can verbally, with the use of logic,
            defend an idea, I am all ears.

            As well, I have increasingly become neutral to the use of ANY language
            necessary to make a point or get the attention of a disrupting bully. I
            took so much hate language from people like Ed, I decided to fight fire with
            fire. The moderators that one would expect to eventually show up and
            restore peace never do. Apparently, they do not exist.

            In closing, I will point out that you are what we used to consider as “anal
            retentive.” Sorry, if you are insulted, but as you came to BE anal
            retentive and BE yourself insulting, then I think it is well deserved.

            P.S.: Why don’t you post your garbage to the instigator of this entire
            episode. Placate him and tell him about how mean I am, and how hateful I
            was to you. He will be eating out of your hand. At least as long as
            you are “sucking up.” When you stop you will notice your entire
            arm has been eaten away. (Sorry, if that bit of exaggerated, dark humor
            is too far over your head.) On the other hand, complain about both
            myself, and Ed, and you might get a pile of lame excuses. YET, tell him
            he is the bullying disruptor, and you might really get blistered. He may
            not use any foul language, but I can guarantee he will follow you to the ends
            of the Earth. He will spew nonsense the entire while.

            Finally, your grammar is not that good. That first sentence of yours
            comes under the heading of “awkward.” Are some of mine awkward
            . . . certainly, but my prime interest is clear communication, not textbook

    As I posted on another blog, impeachment was put in the Constitution to get rid of ACTUAL criminals in office (the old saw, being caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy), when the majority of the PUBLIC tell their representatives they will not wait till the end of a term to do so. And with the EXCEPTION of the President, Congress has mostly used their power to take people off the government payroll who have ALREADY BEEN convicted of a “regular” crime such as bribery, insider trading, or embezzlement.

    But, counting this possible third Presidential impeachment attempt, if it succeeds in getting TO the Senate, it will make a TRIFECTA OF SHAME for Republicans.

    Andrew Johnson — impeached by Republicans for politically-contrived actions (using his Constitutional power to fire the Secretary of War, in violation of an obviously unconstitutional law passed by Congress over his veto), acquitted when ONE of their already-bought votes in the Senate defected (it cost him his political career, but got him a chapter in JFK’s book Profiles in Courage).

    Bill Clinton — impeached by Republicans for showing discretion and refusing to tell the public about his affair with Monica, whose false friend later stole a dress and got a DNA test to “out” her against her will; he was called before a grand jury and asked an irrelevant and improper question, just so they could charge him with something. Acquitted because too many Senators showed some common sense.

    Barack Obama — threatened with impeachment basically for being a black Democrat whom the voters preferred to a white Republican, TWICE.

    The only impeachment with a truly plausible basis, which never got through either House of Congress because of resignation, was of Nixon for the Watergate coverup. And in that case, a Democratic Congress was ready (reluctantly) to impeach a Republican President, for something that he admitted, by resigning, was actually a good reason. If Reagan had not been so charming, the Iran-Contra affair would have been impeachable, ESPECIALLY since Papa Bush’s CIA friends actually made the deal with Iran secretly BEFORE the election, in order to GET elected. But fair minded Democrats, playing by the rules, were satisfied to put some of his underlings on trial (who, having served their time or gotten their convictions overturned, are playing the “martyrs” on Faux News).

    Republicans do not view impeachment as a last resort measure to get rid of a President that most Americans view as a scoundrel and criminal. They view it as a partisan weapon to use for partisan purposes … as long as THEY are the ones using it. Democrats probably COULD have made a reasonable case for impeaching GWB for lying us into a war and using that war to further enrich his buddies, but then Democrats DO consider impeachment a last resort, not a partisan tool.

      Dumbest thing presented this month. That he happens to be black or a democrat isn’t even anectdotal . The lawbreaking and deceptions and efforts to block the truth from being examined are the usual grounds for impeachment.

When asked, it is always about Benghazi or Fast and Furious or one of a couple of made up, contrived Pub scandals. This tragedy, and the joy for the Democrats, is the public mostly knows the Pubs are refusing to do their jobs of governing the nation.

            They aren’t as much intellectually challenged (some are pretty book smart) as they are gullible and hopeful. The honest ones are admitting their failed choice but feel good about voting for a minority. They rest are going to make excuses for him as the best president they could imagine, just as they are hopeful Obamacare isn’t the awful POS it really is.

            Only a complete idiot could make that statement. Romney was garbage as a candidate and he was the best you had. If you remove racism from the mix, Romney loses by 30 points.

            Hucksterabee would have lost by 30 anyway. Only the stupid would have voted for him. Or that racist Creep Paul, DITTO. You people need to wake up . . . actually don’t. You are going to lose 2016 by 15 points, maybe 25.

            You are sick, but oh, so right-wing. What does it matter that a child has no daddy. That is not the child’s fault, oh yeah, like I said, it is very right-wing to blame anyway. The weaker the party to be blamed, the more blame you lay, and the more satisfaction you receive. A fatherless child would be ideal for you. Having a parent without a job and no unemployment benefits, and hungry because, in your perfect world, there would be no entitlements, would send you into ecstasy.

            I my view, Dickhead Ed, you are one sick little bit of nasty work. You can hide behind one or more of your fake names and snipe at people. Unfortunately, you came to me. To paraphrase Truman, the Dumbfuck stops here. Of course everyone, except maybe you, knows who Dumbfuck is.

            1) Then what you have said makes no sense to anyone. You are a bigot AND a moron. If you were not talking about other people having no daddy, then it cannot apply to me. That is the short, simple version. I do not want to overtax that empty head of yours. And you did mean it as I said, which makes you a good right-wacker, AND of course a bigot.
            2) Actually, as I repeated above, I am right on target with you. Spinning yourself out of what would be a grounds for dismissal, with cause, at any employer in the country, is not going to wash. You meant what you said. Now you want to change it by blaming me. Wrong. Won’t work.
            3) Well, looks like I hit a sore spot. Of course, that is my name, but I do not believe you do not have a few extra avatars floating around out there. AND you are HIDING. All anyone knows is you claim to be ED. OH sorry, I forgot YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR LAST NAME IS.

            1) You were abused as a child.

Eventually, people get tired of being reasonable with a trolling bully that just came to disrupt and add nothing to the conversation. Eventually, we just begin to vent, rather than discuss.

            See, telling the truth is really easy. You might try it once.

            Deadhead Ed, everyone with half a mind knows that you are the stupid one. Who in their right mind says Fern is not effective, when the first thing you do is refer to her. Your ass is still on fire after the last time she lit you up. You are hitting back because you are still hurting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            BWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! You are one entertaining guy. A LYING, no brain, no fact, illiterate sack of sh*t guy, but entertaining just the same. Don’t get me wrong, we have not been laughing with you, but at you.

            The differences between Fernie Wood Cock and you are:
            1) “She” is actually a male FAGGOT and you have not yet decided what you want to be.
            2) Her English vocabulary consists of 6 words and yours consists of about 25 or 30, counting your mistakes.
            3) You are BOTH slimy bastards who actually believe that by using ugly words and stupid cries like “BBBWWWAAAAHHH!!” people will not notice how IGNORANT you both are; Russy, people DO notice …

            2)Who cares what her vocabulary is. . . My vocabulary on the other hand is about ten times yours. So I guess you have 3 words. Where are the mistakes, Kocksucker?
            3)You are the slimiest Kocksucker to ever come in this blog. And you made a mistake in that statement, anyway,

            Like I said, you might be happier if you quit hating yourself. That is why you have adopted the Teatard creed of projecting your fear, failure, and dissatisfaction with life onto other people. That is another bit of truth and no exaggeration or error. That is why you bring up the fact that you are a bastard, both in the sense of your birth and your behavior. I pity you. Of course, in the same way that I pity a mad dog. So go ahead an crawl back into your closet, Dickhead Ed.

            No, tomorrow I will give you another thrashing. I understand you self-loathing, closet queens very well, BUT I am staying away from those “lessons” you carry on about. Never know when you will give into temptation. Or do you just like them younger.

        Exactly, he has been attacking Fern since he arrived and is still doing it. He confirms everything I have ever said about him. He is just a troll. Unfortunately, I think he is serious in his stupidity. If he were clever, AND evil, he would make an outrageous comment and then move off to spoil the next blog. Yet, he stays and runs the same stupid spiel into the ground. There is definitely a pathology here, but beyond an extreme inferiority complex and being a Sociopath, I have no clue what it might be.

            According to Deadhead Ed, when he calls people “faggots,” he is not a homophobe. No wonder Teatars will lose the next presidential election and increasingly will lose elections in general. Insulting people is okay as long as he is doing it.

            And when Deadhead Ed says I qualify for the, “FERN WOOD COCK AWARD OF STUPIDITY AND MEANNESS,” he admits the reason he said that is his “plain meanness and an abominable character trait.” I agree. He shows how much a gentleman and a decent human being he is by abusing someone that is not even posting. How fair of him. How typical of a racist, homophobic, self-loathing closet queen, Teatard.

            Let’s see, I did not mean what I said to be appreciated as sarcasm by you. Though somewhat sarcastic, it was not a good example. As well, as a Teatard, your sense of humor is only appreciative of the pain you cause in those you see as untermensch. Or in other words, you have no normal sense of humor, NOR do you have any normal senses at all.

            So let’s just agree. I was dead serious, Deadhead.

            Deadhead Ed, (or angelinc) you are the mental midget. You even stole that from me, so that shows how smart and original you are. What I said about lana ward I meant.

            Everyone with a brain will be amazed that you even made that a complaint anyway. Especially after the things you have said that triggered such responses. Really, lana is one of the most consistently vulgar people in any of these blogs. She is directly responsible for my use of foul language. I threw in the towel and took off the gloves after dealing with her.

            I will point out again, that I meant every word. You attack Fern, when she is not even here, and then defend one of the most ignorant, stupid pieces of sh*t ever to post in these blogs. YOU ARE A FAKE. A creep like you attacking me for insulting you and that total piece of garbage lana, is a wonderful compliment. If you think you are making any headway with this stupidity you are sadly mistaken. I have, and will continue to respond to you, AND wipe the floor with you, for no other reason than your persistent stupidity.

            Wait until I start posting quotes of your nonsense in the next blog you disrupt. There will be no end to the email notifications flooding your inbox. You will not be able to delete them fast enough. You have no sense of humor, but you are funny as hell.

            So keep making your nonsensical claims. The only person you are fooling is your idiotic self. You have pulled this same sh*t before and you have went down in flames EVERY time.

            So you are still an ignorant, arrogant, stupid, self-loathing closet queen that is dumber than a sack of hammers. So keep wasting more of your time trying to do the impossible. This is what I do and I have always stated so honestly and up front. So even if you stop, I know you will be back to spread ignorance and stupidity again. And I assure you that when I catch you insulting people and disrupting conversations, I will be all over you again.

            So roll right on, you stupid, racist, homphobic, sociopath, lying sack of sh*t.

            Not too smart are you? If you actually read someone else’ truth you would know that I told you exactly what was going on. Everytime you engage in one of these LOSING efforts, you are leaving some other decent person in peace. WIN-WIN for me, LOSE-LOSE for you.

            As for the Liberal faction. First, it is not a faction, but an entire system of belief that the human race is actually human. Not the trash beliefs that you can use your lack of human ethics and your animal behavior to get what you want.

            As for being weaker, that is a laugh from an ignorant closet queen. Everytime you show up you make our resolve stronger and you recruit the undecided for our “faction.” So go ahead. You really are just f*cking stupid. Your ignorance does our work for us.

            I could not go through life LYING as you do. And you do it every time you post anything. Off-topic, slander, misinformation are the only things you have. I cannot live like that. I used my mind, in fact honed it, and considered the facts and became Liberal. If I hated everyone and loved to see pain in my fellow man, then I would have become a Pubanderthal like yourself. Laugh, but as always I told you the truth to off-set the LIES you always tell. Really, who are you trying to fool? Me? I certainly am not going to agree with your views that is based on pure LIES.

            So, who have I alienated? YOU? You, that came here, and with your other nicks, in order to slander, disrupt, bully, and LIE? Who f*cking cares? I WANT YOU TO BE ALIENATED. You have bought and paid for it time and time again.

            So, who in the real world of decent, normal people have I alienated? If LIES were punishable by law, you would be right in jail next to that vicious, nasty bit of work, offspring of yours. Except, you would never get out.

            It shows how out of touch and how much of a no-information person you are. Up to 97% of scientists vote Democrat. It was probably in the 40’s when I was a kid. It changed as your party became more insane. Same with your stupid comment about Liberals only matter to the arts and themselves. The greatest number of Pub voters are low IQ, lowno information types that watch Faux because it confirms their hatred of anything reasonable or intelligent. At best these people know how to fleece their fellow man for a living. Look at the rich in this country, especially the Kock brothers. They make piles of money, but innovate NOTHING. They are just salesmen that shortchange their employees for obscene profits. The scientists that create, vote Democrat nowadays.

            The rich, the uneducated, the religious that do not even understand their own deity, they vote for your candidates. Even a lot of them are beginning to see the light.

            GW . . . LYING to the American people about WMD, and a multitude of other intelligence issues , or lack thereof, to start two wars. Let me see, two wars that killed 4000+ Americans, maimed tens of thousands of Americans either emotionally or physically, killed over a hundred thousand civilians, and wounded several hundred thousand more. Caused a massive, on-going refugee problem, including causing that flood of Muslims to OUR shores, spent trillions of dollars we could have used for healthcare, education, jobs, and above all, infrastructure. Spent almost all of this money off the books so the responsibility would not show up on his watch.

            Damn right GW a “war criminal.” You can bet you ass on it.

            What is so funny is I almost never accuse GW of anything. I always blame Cheney for most of this criminality. So even though you are right, GW is a war criminal, I am not the one that claims it.

            You cannot even tell a straight LIE. Too bad, so sad. You are just pitiful.

            And I usually am careful to never predict anything. I am very, very “consevative” in the true sense of the word when it comes to prediction. I am no gambler. BUT 2016 is a no brainer. NONE of your potential mental midget, asylum escapee candidates has a chance against any Democrat that is not in a coma. And if Hilary runs, it will be a rout. So I think your comment about the “Obama reality show” is pretty irrelevant. That “show will go on.” No one with a brain even knows what you are talking about.

            Brainless Russell:
            When you say about lana ward that “She is directly responsible for my use of foul language. I threw in the towel and took off the gloves after dealing with her.”, you are admitting to a common problem you have, along all the liberal retards that populate this cesspool of a forum: TO YOU BRAINLESS LIBERALS IT’S ALWAYS SOMEBODY ELSE’S FAULT, NEVER YOUR OWN !!
            You are PATHETIC, brainless shithead, Russ.

            Hey Deadhead Ed, you proved my points. IEverything with you is about blame. Just blame, blame, blame SOMEONE else and then bring it up as THEIR fault. Your LIES have no value anymore.

            Everybody EXCEPT a right-wackjob idiot knows what I meant. There is NO USE trying to be civil to your class of garbage. I never said even ONE curse word in a blog, until about three years ago. LIARS, disrupting bullying scumbags like you taught me that a civil discourse was impossible. That is not why you come to these blogs.

            You come because you know that no one is going to kill your cowardly ass for the waste of skin that you are. Especially not one of us Liberals. You feel free to disrupt intelligent conversation and make people think that it is just not worth being here. THAT is the exact same tactic Pubs have used to win elections. Scare people and shout down the ones that know better.

            HOWEVER, those tactics are losing their effectiveness. People are getting tired of bullies. It is a liberated world where people actually have a right to say and do what makes them happy.

            So, even though you are f*cking ignorant and have zero reading comprehension, think about this. Every time you come here trolling and spewing you off-topic LIES, yes, easily proved LIES, you recruit more voters for decency. Go ahead and be a child and corrupt that, but we both know decency has nothing to do with you Teatards.

            So keep telling LIES that piss normal people off, keep bullying people that want their Constitutionally guaranteed free speech, you are only driving them to the “good guys.” That’s us, NOT you.

            That is why I am proud to engage you again and again. You are provably losing your ass, but you are too arrogant and ignorant to get the point. Your mob of gangsters is going to lose the next Presidential election. You will probably be saying bye-bye to that sorry sack McConnell and will likely never get control of the Senate. You have a good chance of losing the House in spite of all the dirty tricks. And you will lose it for good anyway in a couple more election cycles.

            Now here is something an intelligent man would give serious thought too. Your right-wacked noise sources like Faux and Rush will tell you that I am dead wrong. BUT think about it, the same ass-holes were telling you that Romney would win by a landslide. I know, I heard them say it. AND look what happened. A man that is even half-way normal would be worried about the veracity of anything these Kock brother’s buddies predict. Of course, you are NOT normal.

            So don’t misunderstand when I tell a Sociopath like you to go F*CK yourself.

            Yeah Deadhead, why not. You are not only a moronic, bullying liar, but a hypocrite too. You come in here with no intention of participating in any conversation. You came to stir shit and you start on Fern, who is not even here. I have to listen to lana’s insane, idiotic blurbs and if I say anything, then I have committed a crime. You are a dickhead.

            I told the truth about my reasons and actions. You just LIE, LIE, LIE. You claim that we Liberal’s are always blaming someone. Well go suck a big one. You are against Obamacare. The sick are at fault for being sick and having no healthcare. Food stamps, ditto. Unemployment, ditto. Even lana that is at fault, ditto. Even so I never assigned blame, but merely pointed out that you f*ckheads trolling and LYING are the reasons I changed my posting methods. You are even a hypocrite about that.

            And if this is a “cesspool of a forum,” what are you doing wasting your time here? Speaking of stupid and pathetic, that is an exact description of what you are. Why don’t you be a man and telling me your real name, instead of hiding? You are nothing but a LYING Kocksucker.

            Well hello again, Dickhead Ed. ” Easily played,” that is arrogantly stupid. I told you what I was about. What is funny is your naive arrogance and false view of your own self-importance. I do not care to win. That is not important to me. Only making you fail, by punitively wasting a lot of your time is all that matters. Using that as a criteria, I HAVE literally won every round, and I am winning this one. By definition, you cannot “win” as I will never stop. So let’s be honest about who is being played. Eventually you will run away like the chicken-shit you are. You always do. Too bad, so sad..

            I have repeatedly called you exactly what you are, besides a LIAR, that is a Sociopath. Do you even know what that means? I know it’s true that you are, but I notice that you have never complained about that label. Not even once. Have you been diagnosed? Are you laying low? How much time have you done in jail?

            Seriously, lana is a guy and angelsinhell talks like a guy that has a gender reassignment problem. You may not be gay, but you are queer. Hey, go on over to the “dark side.” I am a real Liberal and I swear I will not hate you for it. Of course, LYING is symptomatic of the behavior you exhibit. You are untruthful with yourself, so you cannot be truthful with others.

        tax payer: When you refer to “Fernie Wood Cock” please be aware of the following FACTS:
        1) AGREED that HE (it’s not a she but a faggot “he”!!) is here but using another name. Hard to tell who, though, because only HE (the faggot) has a 6-word vocabulary (motherfucker, troll, motherfucker, bitch, faggot – mimicking himself – and motherfucker) (Did I mention “motherfucker”?)
        2) Fernando Wood Cock is a DESPICABLE faggot, NOT because he is a faggot (to each his own), but because HE has been passing HIMSELF as a woman (as a woman nurse, ha, ha, haaaa!) all this time.
        3) This half-man, Fernie, actually believes that his fellow “posters” on this cesspool of liberal retards like and respect him when the OPPOSITE is the truth: they despise him, BUT fear his (brainless) tongue lashings.
        4) Proof of the previous item is the FACT that NOBODY came to his “rescue” when I recently gave him the whipping of his life on this forum (ever wonder why this despicable faggot has not wagged his snake tongue recently??)
        5) Last, but not least, Fernando Wood Cock, the stupid and FAKE “nurse” is an abomination of Nature and deserves to be called out for the EVIL “person” (SNAKE, actually) and BRAINLESS RAT that he is.

    I am getting a big laugh over this clown that actually thinks he will get a direct reply from me, but he seems to forget it’s an indirect comment and never have I mentioned his name like he loves to say mine. How does it feel ( not getting a response ) and I know he wants one directly from me. Keep it up and make a fool of yourself in front of all these people that know by now ( you are being ignored completely ) by someone you really want to verbally attack otherwise you would go back ( under the rock ) you come out from every morning. As he has noticed I let him say what he wants since we all have the right to be here, but ( Off Topic ) is what he is doing now himself. Notice that the more he comments the more angry he seems to be, so ( why may I ask ) since we all have the right to be Racists in this country? No two people are going to think the same way and that includes twins or triplets and so on. I will close for now, but you can be sure this clown will be attacking me again tomorrow and the day after, but he will never get a direct response from me. If it makes him feel good, so be it I guess.

    Right there. That wording. It absolutely nails the crux of the issue. It defines the asylum. The word fools.

    Somewhere in the whole discussion of two-party government, the radical far-right has forgotten that it’s a two-party government, not to mention the fact that their party is the minority party at the moment. Throwing tantrums in their playpen hasn’t gotten them results. Let’s try something even more off-the-deep-end. Instead of coming together with the left to work out mutually agreeable ways to steer the Nation, they throw good political capital after bad. What Lord Byron sneeringly said of Keats’ poetry — “mental masturbation.”
