Kirstin P: Republicans are being irresponsible by not approving Boehner’s or Obama’s proposals.

Laura I: Republicans lost this election. They lost House seats. They lost Senate seats. They lost the White House.

Juan W: I think the Boehner plan would have passed, if Boehner had brought it up for a vote. ... Boehner looks weaker than ever now.

Bill K: Let the House vote. [Thinks Boehner will retain speakership, no matter what happens.]

We never mention Newtown, save in passing. Kaitlyn I must suppose knows all about it. In fact, her school had a lock down drill Tuesday after the shooting, so disconcerting with the timing that the school had to call all parents and swear the practice drill had nothing to do with Newtown. I’m not sure I believe it.

But Kaitlyn tells us in great detail how the classroom doors are now locked at all times, how she learned to dive beneath her desk and shrivel up as small as possible.


Isn’t this testimony to the depth and extent of the failure of liberalism over the course of our lives.

When we were in grade school we were taught to duck and cover so as to avoid getting “hit” by a Soviet ICBM. Now, our grade schools must train current students in how to survive attacks from crazed alumni.

I never thought I’d live to say that I “miss” the Cold War. Turns out, they were the salad days of our lives.

I agree with you about Hillary. She is yesterday’s feminist, who will be OLD in 2016. Talk about her coronation is as much a feint as the talk was about Susan Rice for SoS. I believe that Obama always wanted Kerry in that spot, but he couldn’t just go for the rich white guy off the mark.

My GP doctor quit last month. Going to work directly for a hospital doing emergency room stuff. Hospital will cover all malpractice and legal issues, and he’ll get a guaranteed paycheck every week.

And the patients of this young, smart, hard-working family doctor?

Well, I don’t blame him... But it really messes me up, as my kids and I have chronic medical conditions.

I’m a diabetic on insulin. Type 1 not 2. My endocrinologist told me last week he might have to withdraw from Tricare*, due to government not paying out.

I’m screwed. Thank you, fellow dumb a$$ citizens!

*Tricare isn’t welfare. I worked my buns off for it. It, along with military retirement, is supposed to be “deferred” compensation.

I thought the NRA tactic of throwing the issue back at the politicos-who are out and about being the idiots they are as if only THEY can solve these sorts of matters-to be pure genius.

LaPierre said to hire an armed guard at every school.

Of course, that’s not likely, if not impossible.

BUT....

heh.....

Let the politicians go out and defend against this suggestion. Imagine it now....

Joe Blow politico got the microphone. He rails on and on about the need for gun control, perhaps the very, very stupid “assault weapons” ban. Someone shouts out that why don’t we get armed guards in all schools.

What’s the politician going to say?

“It’s just too expensive to hire guards for every school in America,” he might respond.

Heh.

What a perfectly horrible answer that would be. Don’t this guy care about our children?

It was genius cause Americans know those politicians spend money for all kinds of stupid stuff. Should they collectively deny funds for guards at schools they will make Americans all across the fruited plains angry as hell.

Kudos to the NRA for doing what the pubs do not, or simply can not, do. Which is to use the talk and sight bytes to affect political thinking across the fruited plains.

So since the politicos don’t want to walk into that trap they just might shut up about gun control.

Good strategy.

Watch out, it may be one of those Castro brothers from San Antonio. Hey, we’ve already had a Hussein in the White House, why not a Castro?

Now, is there any democrat out there named Mao or Ho Chi Min?

Might as well keep putting people in the White House who are named after our enemies, right?

Oh my goodness PB you are so right.

The irony is that last night with nieces, daughter and various in-laws we discussed just that very issue.

We talked about how we used to have air raids (yes, I remember these) and yeah, we dove under our desks too.

I also remember being very scared. I was around Kaitlyn’s age when I was going through that trend.

And, indeed, as you say, here we are again.

I got a little bit of a broken heart that granddaughter must live with this but so it is.

Alas Babylon! is one of my favs. The paperbacks kept falling apart because I had read them so often. I finally sprung for a hardback :)

IMHO, the US in 1959 was much better off than today. None of this progressive crap. People were generally more decent and moral.

If I could go back in time, the period 1957-1964 would be my choice. I would gladly give up all the technology and perks I enjoy today to live in that much simpler, more honest time.

How can they even talk in terms of “cutting the budget” when there hasn’t been one passed since Obama took office? Most of what they are talking about are cuts in spending increases, nothing as deaconian as a roll back of total spending to the levels of the Clinton days.

YES. But too many folk get confused between the budget and the appropriations bills. Sure there has been no budget approved and hence no guidance on what policies are to be funded and at what level, BUT THE GOP IN THE HOUSE CONTINUES TO PASS APPROPRIATIONS BILLS (CRs as of late) AND SENDS THEM TO HARRY TO RUBBER STAMP AND THEN ON THE BIG GUY IN THE WHITE HUT.

Want to get Harry and the Big Guys attention - refuse to appropriate these trillions of dollars for crap like Obamacare. The House owns the appropriations process and they cave every time, thinking of Newt and Bubba.

And yes there never have been any cuts - only "cuts" in the rate of increase. BUT NO, the state run media will never ever level with the American sheeple, so they all take another kool aid drink when listening to Zero pontificate on his media outlets like this from NBC

Dec 21, 2012 · Obama insisted he’s already met GOPers ... I met them halfway ...

Dear Lord those Castro brothers.

Is the Democrat party nuts?

Those two are so transparent. They can’t speak Spanish. One is “married” and by the way they showed so ostentatiously spans of his “wife” and child it was obvious to me that a political meme was being created.

Now they get those two, lisping nothing-burgers both, to come out and tell us we must get gun control.

Bah humbug!

Yeah, if Pat Frank was still alive he could re-write the book but it would be much more dark and possibly morbid.

Imagine the scene if it had happened today. Roving gangs of inner city Utes invading the countryside. Illegal aliens from the produce fields of Florida. Displaced tourists from Disneyworld.

Pat would need to move Fort Repose to Alabama!

Watching FNS as well. Kristol and Ingram still spouting their nonsense about tax increases. No mention of the impact on small business or the fact that the revenue raised from taxing the "rich" really doesn't raise much revenue. During the campaign Romney said that raising the tax rates on the 2% would cost 700,000 jobs. Is that true or not?

I find it surprising (not) that these so-called pundits don't understand that Obama is using the tax the rich issue to divide and destroy the GOP. He is not interested in reducing the debt and deficits. Obama wants to increase spending. Are the Reps supposed to roll over and accept that as well since the Dems won the election?

In fact, we have the status quo with the Reps in control of the House. Obama only received 51% of the vote in 2012 down in both percentage and votes he received in the 2008. The Reps should use the leverage it has or lose it in 2014.

Let's go over the cliff. We need a national discussion on the dire state of our fiscal problems. The vast majority of the public has been insulated from its effects. If the public wants the benefits of the welfare state, then they should be willing to pay for it. The increase in taxes on everyone come January 1 will help focus everyone's attention on our spending problem along with our revenue problem. They will have some real skin in the game. I see it as an opportunity for Reps not a calamity. It should be welcomed if our side was smart enough to use it.

We have a $3.7 trillion annual budget and the politicians cannot figure out how to reduce it by $100 billion a year under sequestration. Neither party really wants to reduce spending. We pay $220 billion a year now on just debt servicing costs.

Well, if there was such a thing as reality, you could fire an overpaid/ineffective teacher, and fund two armed guards.

I got a little bit of a broken heart that granddaughter must live with this but so it is.


Shooters like the one in Conn and in Colorado and the one who shot Giffords, et. al. (including a 9-year old) are direct products of two powerhouse institutions dominated by the longterm Soviet-influenced American Left:

The union-run public education system; and the apparatchik lamestream entertainment media and its kook cousins in the computer games racket.

As to the latter, I’m always tickled when Hollywood types say that their products have no impact on viewers (and USERS in the case of games).

This same platform for liberal-speak (claiming their carefully crafted images and narratives have no influence over youth behavior) not that long ago persuaded their own moguls to remove cigarette advertising from TV because it was too seductive and led children to try smoking.

The hypocrisy is rank and evokes the olfactory sensation of a walk through a landfill.

Not sure I agree with you about Hillary but could be. I do agree with you about the Dems being our guys for a while.

One of the bigger reasons why this is so is due to a total lack of an opposition party.

Wow -- good job Wayne LaPierre on MTP It took the whole show but when he went down the list of elites-only who are able to get weapons permits in New York the jack ass who was braying at him had nothing to say.

That was really good stuff on Wayne's part. He handled DNC Dave well.He's used to the drive-by methods of intimidation by now.

I watched 5 minutes of MTP with Gregory trying to hassle Wayne Lapiere(sp) of NRA, Gregory was pretty pathetic, Wayne did well under circumstances

Then I switched to FNS for about 5 minutes probably less, just caught the last portion of the Rick Warren Show.

I am a Christian, I LOVE Jesus, but am afraid I do NOT have very warm feelings towards Rick Warren, I really do not, I do not see him as even being on my side.. I really have no respect for him. Sorry

Franklin Graham is a Christian leader that I have tons of respect for, not sure why they bother with warren, I take that back, for sure I know why they have him.

Rick Warren was instrumental in getting Obama elected the first time, that values charade he held with Obama and McCain, what a joke!

Warren is teamed up with that liberal Jim Wallace guy, really have no use for any of those liberal folks.

Warren says he is “pro life but” should have that on his tomb stone I have no use for the guy, not even sure he is a Christian.

Cant even see a difference between the Presidency of GW Bush and Obama...Warren is a loser

60 million + trumps everything fellow. Really the NEW AGE guy Joel Osteen is much like Rick Warren, wont take a stand on anything, wont say that homosexuality is a sin, when pressed he finally says well it`s not God`s best

And Finally Chris Wallace asks Warren about Christmas, says Newton (where the 26 were killed) colors it for us?

Yes it was a terrible heartbreaking senseless tragedy, but life goes on. Chris thinks every single person watched sickening wall to wall media coverage of it all, I for one watch less than 5 minutes in total!

To put into perspective, far more that 26 children are aborted every morning in almost every stated, Same will happen tomorrow morning.

More than 26 Children die in Childrens hospitals every morning, probably in every state, there was something really deplorable about the media coverage.

No Chris,life goes on

Dick Gregory totally losing the argument with LaPierre.

I dislike that guy anyway but this morning he sounds like a dumbbell as he is a dummbbell, bought and paid for.

He holds up something supposedly a gun magazine. Says to the effect “wouldn’t putting fewer bullets in this help the problem”?

Dolt, let us all pray that these media hacks someday go away.

But LaPierre is holding his own and by the American public, I think he will win the national argument.

You can believe the White House called up Gregory and begged him to pounce on that notion of armed guards and provided him with the talking points, as it always goes.

I still think the argument for armed guards at school is going to be damn hard for the politicians to argue against.

Isn’t the safety of our children more important than, say, Planned Parenthood?

LaPierre did mention us sending money overseas and again, what a great sound byte. Americans will consider that Schumer will vote to send money to Egypt by is against protecting our own children here in America?

It’s how the pubs should do. And Gregory, heh,....

.....you sound like the talking head idiot you are.

Hillary will get the Dem nomination and will be elected in 2016.

The biggest reason is the rapidly changing demographics in this country fueled by immigration, legal and illegal, and high minority birthrates. Immigrants and minorities vote Democrat. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under will be minorities as defined by the USG and by 2042 half of the country will be minorities.

Right now government at all levels controls 42% of the GDP. Almost one in every two Americans receives a government check.

Hillary's time came and went. She lost out to an upstart nobody on her way to her coronation in 2008.

The Dems are smart enough to not make the Pubbie mistake: nominating an old, over the hill hack.

Clinton in 1992 and Obama in 2008 showed them that youthful candidates have much more appeal than old fogies: GHW Bush in 1992, McCain in 2008, Romney in 2012. Dems are probably already grooming their next, while the GOPe are stuck on Jeb it's his turn Bush.

Obama limped across the finish line in 2008. Hillary almost closed the gap. She has now become an American institution. She has her own brand. Hillary will be the first woman President just as Obama was the first black President. The Dems and the low information voters will eat this stuff up. Hillary will be on the front lines of the war on women. Hispanics love her more than Obama.

Why would the Dems nominate anyone else when they have a lock with Hillary? Hell, Bill Clinton's current approval rating with the public is 65%.

It might be enlightening to go back and read some of 'our' not-so-thrilled comments about the new House Speaker in 2010 and the attacks from some of the GOP loyalists.

The GOP seems to lack strong leadership: Hastert, Boehner, Lott, Frist, McConnell. They just don't give an aura of strong leadership.

Since the State Dept. issued their final summary on Benghazi(an Axelrod fairy tale IMHO,) does that mean its over and done with as far as any jeopardy for Hillary goes? Will she still have to testify if ordered to by Congress? How much longer do we have to force her to testify as head of the State Dept and not a private citizen?

My Internist joined a hospital group...He was a Lib.ha.
Its a very different atmosphere..with the computer records, etc. He now sends me to the doc-in-the-box if I need to be seen that day.

Congratulations Obozo voters!So much for the “relationship” bet pt and doctor.Its very changed. For the first time in 10 yrs I am considering “should I get him a Christmas gift?”

I believe that Boehner likely knows who’s going to vote for his proposals with much better clarity than Juan or Bill. I wonder what’s giving Juan and Bill the idea the the vote would have passed?

TG, you need to argue about Hillary with Kabar. He seems to think it’s a done deal.

I do not think so, not for a minute.

I do think the Dems are in control for quite a bit in the upcoming future.

But Hillary and her ugly self?

I really doubt the Dems will do like the pubs, nominate the old over-the-hill.

They’ll groom a Susan Rice or one of the Castro brother or some such to take over the helm.

Why would they be so dumb as to go from Obama to Hillary?

I don’t see it.

We shall see.

Hillary will not sell on the cover of every liv*-favored magazine, as the Obamas have been sold.
I don’t argue that a Republican can win, only that HRC is past her sell-by date.
