    Excerpt:

    After falsely stating Ryan's buget plan would "cut Medicare spending," Tapper ran a bite of Ryan admonishing, "if we demagogue each other at the leadership level, then we're never going to take on our debt," before he concluded with Obama's snide retort: "President Obama told the House Republicans he's all for a reduction in demagoguery. After all, he says, he understands the issue as the 'job-killing, death panel, probably wasn't born here' President."​

    :lol:

    Yeah. Right. And how many abortions for the sake of convenience are we up to now? Almost 40 million?

    :lol:

    Wait! That's not funny. That's a holocaust.

    Well, I don't have trouble with Abortion. Or the death penalty. And I think that while war is reprehensible..sometimes you gotta fight 'em.

    You?

    Why don't we focus on the hypocrisy pinpointed by the Media Research Center? You know, the OP and all?

    There is discussion on another thread right now--How could this have happened--or something like that re the incident of the drowning. Blamed on budget cuts. Budget cuts that prevented training to certify public safety personnel for water rescue. Without such training they were required to stand on shore and watch the man drown. And, of course, if you want to blame budget cuts, you don't mention that it was a rule that only certified personnel could do water rescue. Nevermind that there were plenty of people there who could have saved the life even without being certified.

    I am getting sick and tired of accusing budget cuts of killing people. When you can show me that salaries, benefits, perks and privileges and comforts and aesthically enhancing expenditures have been cut or scaled back for all government personnel. . . .

    When you show me that all programs that are nice to have but that don't affect life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness have been scaled back or eliminated. . . .

    THEN you can tell me that budget cuts are killing people.

    Until then it is all partisan smokescreen and hate mongering for personal benefit.

    And we the people should not tolerate this kind of thing any further.

    Well, I obviously oppose abortion on demand. The death penalty is imposed for crimes, and rightly so. And, yes, of course, wars sometimes have to be fought.

    But the issue here is leftists creating a sense of resentment and entitlement, then dependency, then entrenched, generational poverty, then debt and tyranny, and then pretending to care about the lives and wellbeing of others.
