Re: Al Franken Humiliates Rick Perry

Talk about taking a false equivalence to extremes!!!

Re: Admidst the hand wringing

You need to get out in the real world, albaby. Right-wing propaganda did not exist in a form or format even close to how it exists today until the mid-90's.

You might ask yourself the same question: why now?

Too bad that the people who need to hear and understand this will either not hear it or refuse to believe it.

But you think that based on what exactly? A desire to believe that the Republican Party has not been taken over by ill-informed old white folks?

Re: Admidst the hand wringing

So over half of the GOP voters are being deluded by the GOP propaganda machine. I'm not making that up. It has been documented by many. That's the biggest bang for the buck problem that can be attacked and the only one that would appear to [more]

You must have been looking at a different chart than me.

Re: Depp jokes about Trump assassination

I wouldn't be surprised if Depp finds himself being scheduled for an interview with the Secret Service. That's really irresponsible and inappropriate, and I expect he'll be told so in no uncertain terms.

Re: Admidst the hand wringing

As long as the propaganda machine exists and tens of millions of Americans are immersed in it, the facts of a Democrat's campaign positions is irrelevant. The machine will not endorse a Democrat even if he/she claims to be Republican lite. And [more]

Re: Admidst the hand wringing

You disagree with me because I see the very real break in Republican power in Washington that came after Reagan and before Bush II.

Your history of the Conservative Revolution is false. The Reagan revolution was just that. It came and went with Reagan. Bush I tried to keep it going but failed. That was followed by the Clinton era which further removed any impact of the Reagan [more]

Polls and surveys show that Trump supporters are driven primarily by a hatred for "others". They hate liberals. They hate government. They hate minorities. They hate Muslims. And as crazy as it sounds, they apparently hate women - even [more]
