And here, ladies and gentleman, we have a perfect example of the species SLIV. The distinguishing characteristic between SLIVs and LIVs is the inability of the former to change their mindset once they’ve experienced the folly of their ways.
Scientists tell us there’s but sligbt concern in fhe academic community Super Low Information Voters will discover how to procreate and sustain the breed.
I have no sympathy for her. The bill was able to be downloaded and read by anyone who wanted to take the time. I spent 3 months reading it in 2009/2010, which included an enormous amount of time spent chasing leads and searching for comprehensible interpretations of the jumbled minutia within it.
I was called a racist, a Teabagger and more when I shared what I found, and perhaps the most insulting remarks came from those who didn’t believe that I read it at all (because the facts were just too horrifying for their feeble minds to accept).
What she should do (along with others who refuse to believe that The One screwed them) is just focus on his apology. A shorter version that could accommodate their limited attention span would be “I’m sorry that your life is totally f*cked now, but this is my legacy and I’m stickin’ to it!!!”
It’s not just your legacy Anthony. Eventually, everyone is going to be eating from this pie. That is a certainty. No worries, I’m also now labeled a racist, Teabagger, etc. by these same people.
That was no apology. We Hispanics know that bs strategy too well. Blah, blah, blah until they can no longer understand what you really said. It has long been the way of the Latin American governments…lip service only.
No, not my legacy – HIS legacy. That seems to be the only thing that matters. His “Signature Achievement” will remain intact, even at the peril of the entire country. Its all about ego; nothing more. And all of the sycophants are just too fucking stupid to realize it.
A shiny new toy is an apt description. Or, a child pretending to be king.
As far as the legacy goes, I will not be part of it. At least not quietly. Its a piece of garbage, and I hope that 2014 will bring some changes to the (lack of) balance in Washington so it can be shelved, repealed, re-written – in short, whatever the hell has to be done with it to stop it from going forward as it is. Forcing each and every citizen to participate or face reprisal by the IRS is very close to the reason this country was founded in the first place.
Indeed, the founding fathers have seized in their graves. This is a tax that was imposed on the citizens by the poser and his court. It needs to be dumped like the trash that it is. That court includes his jester, SCOTUS Roberts.
I doubt that people such as this woman have the foresight to truly understand how dire this situation is. I hear it all the time…we need to care for those without. This perversion labeled social justice is not the way to go about it either.
The only way we are going to see the end of zerocrapcare (or its clone) is a reversal of the US SC decision that the mandate is legal, and there are not a whole lot of ways for that to occur. Just sayin.
The so-called “government” is nothing but cartels run by the plutocrats for the plutocrats and is increasingly comprised of the plutocrats as they move to ruling us openly. I do not see the tea party as any different from the rest of congress unless it is that they hate women a little more than does the average congress-thing.
Just look at Cruz for ffs, with his Goldman Sachs CFR wife, or the scores of them funded by FreedomWorks aka Koch. Gah. I am not holding my breath for any help from that quarter. Unless the public unexpectedly goes all Frenchy en masse on the lot of them, we’re fucked.
He characterized the CFR as a pit of vipers but failed to acknowledge that his wife had been one of them for years. Jmo that does not pass the smell test. It does not help that he agreed with gun regulation before he was against it. I never trust people like that. Nor does it help that he has placed a hold on the nomination of some guy to head the FCC until they promise they won’t require disclosure of ad buyers (as required by law).
Someone owns him.
I don’t think Ted is owned by anyone other than himself. Having clerked for SCOTUS taught him something very valuable. That is to look at both sides of the coin. His wife was into the banking market business before they got together. His wife is low on the totem pole Nom. She is not a CEO.
His wife is only 41 yet she is already a managing director at GS: she is going places and quite possibly beyond GS, whatever her present place in the GS hierarchy. She has previously worked for the Treasury Dept and the National Security Council and was for several years a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (only leaving in June). She is intelligent, attractive, and personable: but she is working directly for the bankster-plutocrat wing of those who actually run our nation.
As you point out Cruz himself clerked for Rehnquist. But he was also part of the legal team that impeached Clinton. And he was also a principal in the Bush-Gore debacle in Florida that denied millions of people their vote. He’s a long term insider that poses as a populist… just no.
When someone tries to deceive, they are by definition deceptive. And no one ought to trust deceptive people. jm6¢ (inflation).
I have the same concerns over the overwhelming majority of congress btw, not remotely just Cruz.
Yes, she is moving forward. At her age and the amount of time that she has been there, it would be very odd if she weren’t moving up. We all have concerns Nom. The government and politics are an overwhelming business. Right now, I see citizens putting out fires (meaning that they are finally paying attention and speaking up) while another one pops up elsewhere in nanoseconds.
Not just white, but most certainly any and all middle class. If you rose to middle class, this is about to dump you into lower class. I guess the lesson should be not to aspire to do anything that is responsible in life, right? Live by entitlement or live off the backs of those that follow the rules in the middle. It’s deplorable.
