    No shit!!

    And nobody in congress is even bothering to question the executive branch ruling by fiat, like a bunch of autocrats.

    If the current bunch had (R)s by their names, the left and the media (redundant, I know) would be having a collective bed wetting festival.

    I can't wrap my brain around the why. Why so many in our country want this. But, it is here..not coming, but here.

    Its just all part of the swinging of the political pendulum. We spend a few years under a right wing Republican President, and then we shift to a left wing Communist, Socialist
    Barack Obama type President. Before you know it we will have another Republican President in the White House.!$$!

    A typical economically ignorant analysis that dismisses the obvious reality that socialism necessitates the collective ownership of the means of production in favor of the pathetically inane "government = socialism" myth, despite the fact that many modern forms of socialism emphasize a minimization or abolition of government, though I suppose Marxism and its derivatives remain an exception in many ways.

    I don't necessarily see it that way. Not this round. I don't think we have stooped this ''low'' before, have we?
    Government has not had this much control before, has it?

    And I love the fact that Pravda sounds exactly like every Commie Red State CON$ervative. It's not for nothing that CON$ are the REDS and Libs are the TRUE BLUE Americans.
