    This is where we find out whether the GOP has finally learned to do what's RIGHT or what's POPULAR.

    Suffice it to say that their decision on this will probably affect my ability to vote for ANY Republican candidate for the rest of my life.

    Was extending Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans "popular" or "right"?

    It was definitely Right and in many circles even beyond the wealthy it was also fairly Popular. Either way it was the Right thing to do.

    Gays, Guns, God and Greed; greed is no longer a deadly sin, it has become a vitue in the lexicon of the New Right/the former GOP.

    THEY (liberals, commies, socialists, gays, lesbians, trial attorney's, civil servents, progressives, Democrats, non Christians, athiests, agnostics, college professors, teachers) HATE (America, freedom, liberty, The Consitutuion, The Second Amendment, God,);

    so, real Americans must

    FEAR (gays who want your daughter to marry another female and your son to want to marry another male, THEY who want to take your guns away and make America into a socialist nanny state to create a new world order where we all speak Spanglish and eat with chop sticks and are governed by Sharia Law and the Calaphate).

    Seems to cover the Republican agenda. Of course the birthers will now insist President Obama prove he's not a Muslim, and soon Rush Limbaugh and/or Sarah Palin will offer more revised history of the economic crisis of 2008, and opine it was and remains the fault of Presidents Carter, Clinton and Obama.

    With the exception of the "God" part (which should be replaced with Traditional Values) that sounds like one hell of a winning formula to me, Wry.

    You see, those are the things this country was FOUNDED ON, Wry. Traditional Morals & Values, Gun Ownership, Personal Responsibility, and the Right to make your own FORTUNE in life; or to make nothing out of that life at all. Those are the ideals that this Nation was built upon and unless we get back to them pretty soon, we're going to see this nation fall into the vast abyss of history in the near future.

    Of course there is backlash.

    No one wants what they hold dear touched.

    Cut the other guy but leave me alone. Human nature really.

    People just don't look at the big picture. They look at whats starring them in the face, Period.

    Everyone should be allowed to draw exactly what they have put into Medicare not what those coming behind have put in.

    So what about those of us who don't want to put in or take anything out of Medicare? I would GLADLY sign away my ability to collect ANY Government medical care money in order not to have any taken from my paycheck. Hell, I pretty much already have done that.... my Living Will has a provision stating that ANY medical service which would be paid for by the Government rather than my presonal insurance CANNOT be administered to me; even if it means my death.
