    The Republicans have plenty of poor. Orin Hatch says the poor must pay more.

    Eric Cantor talking about the Mid West survivors of those Tornadoes, saying that we need to take a longer look at whether they should be helped after such natural disasters.

    The death panels set up in Arizona to deny state residents life saving operations because of the cost.

    Turning Medicare into a "voucher" program.

    Tom Coburn wanting to cut funding for Tricare which cares for injured and disabled veterans.

    Many Republicans are unemployed.

    Many Republicans are without health care.

    This is the Republican Base. Their leadership only talks to them when it's time to get re-elected.

    Does this bother the base at all?

    (please Republicans, instead of complaining about links, use Google, it's not that hard, and there is nothing here we haven't linked to a dozen times at least)

    How could we possibly mind? After all, we're the ones in favor of dirty air and water and all sorts of other stuff that affects us the same as everyone else.

    Always the Republicans' fault, eh, deanie....?

    In your honor:

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.


    She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."


    "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"


    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."


    The man smiled and responded, "You must be an Obama-Democrat."


    "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"


    "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are -- or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

    Actually, we don't like how much the GOP has capitulated on this bullcrap.

    sure I mind. unlike the left who apparently will eat up whatever excrement obama leaves them on the table and ask for seconds, I am not happy with the rep. party.

    See the difference there?

    U= Whore.

    Me? Not so much.

    They capitulated on the spending cuts and now our credit rating has been lowered.

    If they had just stood up for what was right the people would have supported them.

    All I can say is you gotta wonder about radical left wingers who worry about republican leadership while the global economy is in crisis and the president is hiding out on a bus somewhere in the mid-west.
