    Looks like Nashville and NYC are trying to get something going too!

    60-100. Considering they were conservatives, that's alot. I imagine it was because of President's Day. ;)

    In Seattle that's almost 90% of our conservative population ... the same ones that complained about the protests from the liberals ... that's just ... well ... odd.

    Yep.. conservatives generally 'protest' in smaller numbers... and on holidays

    Because we actually have careers to contend with, families, and responsibilities that we don't try and shirk off on others or the government

    It's a start. Since there really are few in DC listening and states are keeping tax refunds, first CA and now KS, seems way overdue.

    Funny to, since many of the laborers who keep this country actually moving had to work then ... and every holiday, without overtime except on two. Some work ethic, considering these same cons that got that day off also get every weekend off. So I wouldn't word it like that, makes you look like you have a lower work ethic than the liberals.

    Also, learn to take a fucking joke sometime.

    Exactly!

    And what's up with Obama spending 65,000 per hour to take Air Force one to Denver to sign a bill he could easily sign in his office? Maybe he should drive a hybrid to Denver!

    Hmmm....... Obama' stimulas package amounts to less than a trillion dollars, and it is all going to be spent here. Unlike Bush's Iraq war, that has cost us much more than the stimulas package already, and the company that it benefited the most packed up and move to Dubai.

    Seems you conservatives only want to spend money if it kills somebody.
