Alan Grayson and the War on Women goes live

Remember the war on women Democrats are always talking about?

Well, it turns out that there’s a grammar problem with that sentence, and being a Grammar Nazi we can’t let that lie. That first sentence should read “Remember the Democrats’ War on Women?” The silly little apostrophe just makes all the difference. It puts the ownership of the war on women in the right place. With the Democrats.

Here’s the latest salvo, unfortunately you will only see a flash of this in the major media and they won’t point out the obvious. Alan Grayson is just a typical foul-mouthed, bully, not-so-bright, Democrat.

There’s domestic violence that predates this incident but went unreported.

If this were a Republican the press would be all over this and every previous alleged incident of domestic violence would be trotted out over the next few weeks.

Alan Grayson is a foul “human being”, and we use scare quotes because we’re not really sure we’d classify Grayson as human in a civil society. The most interesting part of this to us is that Grayson’s district got redrawn and apparently he’s in a safe seat now after a very close race against Alan West two years ago.

We stopped trying to understand Democrats a long time ago. They seem to be drawn to politicians like Grayson. They also have an affinity for people who give every indication that they’re simply not very bright. Like the classic “…if we put too many Marines on Guam the island may tip over…” We were talking with a client on Guam well over a year after that and right out of the blue she changed the subject to “people don’t know much about Guam…” and brought that incident up. Along with some commentary about rank stupidity.

In closing, we’d like to know why Republicans seem to be giving Grayson a pass on this – and everything else this piece of nose slime does. The Republican National Committee, with the help of the US Chamber of Commerce, is working overtime trying to knock off the Tea Party and they ignore dregs of society like Alan Grayson.

Where are the Party bench builders down in Florida? Why aren’t they recruiting like crazy to find a credible opponent to Grayson? And, what’s in the water down there? Debbie Wasserman Schultz – who couldn’t possibly have a double digit IQ – is from Florida. Why don’t they have full time people doing nothing but following every word these idiots utter and tweeting them to death?

The Democrats are basing their hopes in November on their Republican War on Women meme. Why aren’t Republicans hitting back twice as hard?

We guess they’re not proactively on the attack because the Country Club Establishment would be embarrassed and because the US Chamber of Commerce won’t pay for it.

It’s long past time for a change at the top of the RNC.

    I think the best way for the repubs to handle this is to file it away along with Bill Clinton, Elliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner and others.

    And the first time the MSM and/or another dem (BIRM) tries to use the absurd war on women meme on them, fire back, list these names and ask what party is really waging a war on women.

    As for Grayson, the man is a flaming lunatic. No wonder he runs as a democrat.

  • Wesley

    I don’t care about party affiliation. If the guy is rogue than report it. The bad behavior is wide spread, corruption is to blame. There is too much money influence in politics. But I don’t believe there is a liberal media bias. There are far more republican rottweilers in the media and more anti-liberal propaganda with Faux News leading the way. And you can find bad on both sides of the isle so try to be objective.

    • Jwb10001

      I see by your Faux News comment that you are leading the way on the “try to be objective” front. How can you expect others to follow along when you don’t follow your own advice?

      • Wesley

        I watch Fox from time to time and it is nothing but propaganda.

        • jim_m

          I think the problem is that you are incapable of distinguishing commentary from news reporting. FOX’s commentary definitely leans to the right. Its news reporting does not. By contrast the news reporting of other networks actually does lean significantly to the left as some of the links I have provided demonstrate.

        • Jwb10001

          So typical, when one of your own is caught in the trap you decide it’s a bi partisan problem, when one of ours is in the trap well that’s another thing all together. Do you ever watch MSLDS (see we can do the little funny name thing too) do you find them to be objective? What about our other big news organizations like NBC, CBS, CNN none of them have an agenda right?

    • jim_m

      But I don’t believe there is a liberal media bias

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      That thing you supposed was your credibility… It really doesn’t exist.

      Only a complete and utter moron would be so ignorant as to claim that the media has no liberal bias. Sure there are pockets of conservatism on talk radio and on FOX News commentary shows. However, the vast majority of print and broadcast news media is tilted far to the left.

      The only people that do not find the media tilted to the left are people so delusionally left wing that they think the people like Bill Ayers are conservatives and they are the sort of people that feel that communism has never failed because it has never really been tried.

      Congrats for self identifying as a total idiot.

      Also, it remains a fact that the media is very lax about reporting party affiliation when it comes to dems involved in some sort of scandal, but they never fail to identify a republican or a conservative as such.

      And your bogus excuse of “Everyone does it” does not excuse the bad behavior of leftists. The fact is that everyone shouldn’t do it and simply because someone else does it does not mean that we should give someone a pass.

      • jim_m

        Also, Journalists are admitting their bias these days.

        Journalists rate themselves as more left leaning than the general public

        And it is a matter of public record that the vast majority of journalists support left wing candidates.

        That bias even shows up in how much time they devote to dems vs republicans.

        So, journalists admit to being biased, they self identify as left wing, they donate to the left and evidence is that it skews their news coverage.

        But go ahead and live in your ignorant fantasy world Wesley. I’m sure it is so much more comforting for you to believe in the lies you are fed by your leftist betters.

        • Michael Becker

          You’re a racist. Only racists use facts.

          • jim_m

            That’s because facts themselves are racist.

      • Wesley

        Typical conservative jerk, don’t like the comment, resorts to name calling.

        • jim_m

          Resorts to providing several links that demonstrate that there is actually a liberal bias to the majority of the media and mocks your ideologically bound ignorance, calling you out for the fool that you are.

          Cool the objective guy complains about the “JERK” calling him names.

          Actually, he didn’t call you anything. He said “Only a complete and utter moron would be so ignorant as to claim that the media has no liberal bias.” and you proudly claimed that mantle.

    The democrats are waging war on Women. A war on unborn children. A war on the economy. A war on the American dream. A war on our healthcare and now the petulant failure man child is starting other wars around the World just to name a few..

    These restraining orders, alimony robbery, and child custody and visitation denial are a part of The War on Men, anyone with any knowledge of the world or who hangs around a courtroom for a day knows that.

    It’s not a partisan issue, it’s a male / female issue. Stop being white knights. Bros before hos.

    • Michael Becker

      It’s absolutely a partisan issue, you’re just too dumb to figure it out.

      • Commander_Chico

        A married couple battling through a divorce is a partisan issue?

          No just leftists who refuse to answer questions is.

          “As I said before, try answering what people say, and not try to put words in others’ mouths, debate goes better” – Chico, Famed Wizbangblog poster

          How about practising what you preach Chico.

          1 Oprah,the Lamestream media, Reid, Pelosi, and other major dems have called people racist simply because they oppose Obama’s
          policies. Yet when they oppose those same policies when espoused by Bill, Hillary. Reid, Pelos, Gore, Kerry, etc etc they weren’t considered racist then by Oprah, etc etc (I don’t know isn’t good enough)
          Do you feel that it is because the left is just playing the race card?

          2. People were called racist anarchist terrorists when they tried to delay Obamacare yet Al Franken who did the same thing wasn’t called Racist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the call just playing the race card because that is all they have?

          3. People were called racist anarchist terrorist when they called for the delay of all or part of Obamacare and Obama who is unconstitutionally doing the same thing is not called a racist anarchist terrorist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the calling are just playing the race card because that is all they have?

          4. Chico stated ” They (duck dynasty guys) were clean shaven before they pitched the TV show.” yet you provided zero proof of this statement. Please do so now.

          Examples of statements 1, 2, and 3 (since you reject the premise)

          Salon writer Joan Wals
          It’s simply stunning: Longtime Republican imagemaker Ailes figured out how to make sure that our twice-elected Democratic president, backed by a coalition that represents an emerging, multiracial America, must periodically be checked and hopefully shamed by a representative of the angry right-wing white male minority that barely considers him a legitimate leader…

          O’Reilly and Ailes and their viewers see this president as unqualified and ungrateful, an affirmative action baby who won’t thank us for all we’ve done for him and his cohort. The question was, of course, deeply condescending and borderline racist. Obama has been afforded “so much opportunity”? What about O’Reilly, who pretends he’s a working-class son of Levittown, Long Island, when he’s actually the kid of an accountant who grew up in Westbury and went to private high school and university

          Wall Street Journal’s Steve Moore: “This is still a pretty conservative country and people are upset about the policies in Washington and they don’t think the politicians are listening.”

          Talking about the town hall protests against ObamaCare on MSNBC’s Hardball, August 11, 2009.

          If racism is not the whole of the Tea Party, it is in its heart, along with blind hatred, a total disinterest in the welfare of others, and a full-flowered, self-rationalizing refusal to accept the outcomes of elections, or the reality of democracy, or the narrowness of their minds and the equal narrowness of their public support.”
          — MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Countdown, March 22, 2010.

          “The Republican Party in this country has been running on hate and division for the last 50 years….What black person, gay guy or girl, immigrant or Muslim American in their right mind would vote for the Republican Party? They might as well hang a sign around their neck saying, ‘I hate myself.’”

          Host Lawrence O’Donnell: “The Republican Party is saying that the President of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this President around, the unions boss him around.

          — MSNBC’s The Last Word, February 25, 2011.

          “The interesting question is: what is it about this President that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the office of the President? Why do Republicans think this President is unpresidential — unpresidential, and shouldn’t dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008, or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin.”
          — MSNBC political analyst and ex-Newsweek reporter Richard Wolffe talking about the brief contretemps over scheduling Obama’s speech to Congress, The Last Word, August 31, 2011.

          “I get out of all of these things that many of these [Republican] candidates would rather take legislation to build a time machine and go back in time to where we had, you know, no women voting, slavery was cool. I mean, it’s just kind of ridiculous.”
          — Daytime anchor Thomas Roberts on MSNBC Live, September 23, 2011, talking about the previous night’s GOP debate.

          “Plus, what Mitt Romney has in common with the KKK. Details on a rare Romney campaign blunder ahead….So you might not hear Mitt Romney say ‘keep America American’ anymore. That’s because it was a central theme of the KKK in the 1920s. It was a rallying cry for the group’s campaign of violence and intimidation against blacks, gays and Jews.”
          — Anchor Thomas Roberts on MSNBC Live, December 14, 2011.

          Host Chris Matthews: “How does this guy [Mitt Romney] go from hard right, severely conservative, to this new regular mainstream character he’s portraying himself as?…He ran as a full mooner, Michael. You know, he was saying ‘There’s no such thing as science.’… How can he go from Flat Earth, ‘I don’t believe in evolution,’ to all of a sudden, ‘I’m teaching biology’?… It certainly was in the Grand Wizard crowd over there, okay?”
          Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele: “Wait, I resent that! No. Come on, what is this ‘Grand Wizard’ nonsense? Are you saying that we’re Ku Klux Klan?”
          Matthews: “Okay, I’m just saying, the far-right party.”
          Steele: “Give me a break! Don’t go there with me on that.”
          — MSNBC’s Hardball, April 23, 2012.

          You notice he [Romney] says ‘anger’ twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama. The other-ization, he’s not like us. I know it’s a heavy thing to say. I don’t say it lightly. But this is niggerization, ‘You are not one of us,’ and that ‘you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.’”

          Host Martin Bashir: “Of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration, can I quote something [to] you? ‘For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems. He hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He’s been working to earn a spot on the PGA tour.’ How about that?”
          MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell: “Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there….These people reach for every single possible racial double-entendre they can possibly find in every one of these speeches.”
          — MSNBC’s Martin Bashir, August 29, 2012, talking about McConnell’s speech at the Republican National Convention.

          They hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al Qaeda. Their number one enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred — hatred for Obama. We can go into that about the white working class in the South, and looking at these numbers we’re getting in the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases. This isn’t about being a better president. They want to get rid of this president. That’s their number one goal and they’re willing to let Romney go to the hard center, even if it’s to the left on issues, as long as they get rid of this guy.”
          — Chris Matthews during MSNBC’s post-debate coverage, October 22, 2012

          “I look at Obama as a perfect American. I don’t mean politically. We can disagree left and right on him. You can argue about the drones. Argue about the fiscal policy, all that stuff. But as a citizen. The guy went to school, he never broke a law. He did everything right. He raised a wonderful family. He’s a good husband, a good father. My God I don’t think he’s ever gotten a speeding ticket. The guy does everything right and these right-wingers — and he’s really been pretty moderate on guns until the horror of Newtown — and I don’t know what they’re so afraid of, except that he happens to be black.”
          — Host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 6, 2013

          What does your study tell you about the nature of the racial piece here of the Tea Party?…Is it sort of a resumption of the Old South, of the way things were before the Civil War, for example? Is it like that old dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies, Gone With the Wind? Is it that kind of America they want to bring back or what? When there were no gays, where blacks were slaves, Mexicans were in Mexico? I mean, is this what they want?”
          — Chris Matthews to author Christopher Parker on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 20, 2013

          The problem is there are people in this country — maybe 10 percent, I don’t know what the number, maybe 20 percent on a bad day — who want this President to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn’t President….They can’t stand the idea that he is President, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group. So what? It is the sense that the white race must rule. That’s what racism is. And they can’t stand the idea that a man who is not white is President.”
          — Chris Matthews appearing as a guest on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, May 15, 2013

          “The IRS is being used in exactly the same way as they tried to use the President’s birth certificate…Despite the complete lack of any evidence linking the President to the targeting of Tea Party groups, Republicans are using it as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House….This afternoon, we welcome the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this President — the IRS. Three letters that sound so innocent, but we know what you mean.”

At least they were honest back then….[Today] you’ve got people talking about nullification of the law of the land [ObamaCare]. You got people talking impeachment like [Senator Tom] Coburn. You got Ted Cruz out there. They never say their problem with Obama is that he’s black, but look at the pattern….At least the Daughters of the American Revolution knew what they were saying and they said it out loud: ‘He’s black, she’s black, she can’t sing here.’ These guys today use all the techniques of nullification and talking about illegitimacy and accusing the President of being a crook, basically, for even being president, because he’s here illegally. And then they talk about impeaching him on grounds they can’t even come up with. At least in the old days they were honest about it. Today, they’re not.”

          ¦ “I want to talk today about a controversial word….A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean.

And, I mean, they won’t (laughs), they’re not going to let conservatives watch MSNBC, fine! You’re not even going to notice that. How many conservatives, seriously, are watching Ed Schultz or Rachel Maddow, you know, or Al Sharpton every night?

          PRESS: It’s silly.

          HOLDEN: I want to see how this probation looks and when it ends. (Alluding to RNC chair Reince Priebus’s response to Cheerios ad tweet). And what, you know, is there going to be a soft landing from the probation? This is kind of silly at this point.

          PRESS: It is and, you know, first of all, good for Cheerios for bringing that spot back and not bowing into the pressure and as far as this tweet goes, again, “maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everybody else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” that’s the truth. That is the truth! The right winger, the racist right winger will hate it. Everybody else will like it. It’s a beautiful spot.

          MSNBC interview regarding rejection of union.

          WAGNER: – nails this a little bit. And he talks about the UAW has, or the idea of organized labor and finds, y’know, great welcome in NYU and in bastions of sort of liberal, progressive thought. But then when it comes down to it, here you have workers on an assembly line in Chattanooga, Tennessee, who have turned down the option. And he makes a point that, “As many unions have discovered, generally to their woe, the politics of race and culture often eclipse those of class in the United States.” [1]

          NOAH: Right.

          WAGNER: And these sort of cultural means around unions, um, distracted from the actual economic benefits of them. [2]

          NOAH: The South has always been hostile territory for union organizing. Y’know, as Harold said, the culture war in the South trumps the class war. [1] You already have in a number of Southern states right to work laws, which means that even if they had unionized the plants, those who benefitted from the presence of that union wouldn’t have had to pay union dues if they didn’t feel like it.

          A furious Mr. Reid hinted that Republicans’ opposition was based on racism, pointing to to several other black nominees that GOP senators had opposed earlier. But in the case of Mr. Adegbile, his defense of Abu-Jamal was too much for even some Democrats

            That’s very impressive, you spent the whole time I was away compiling those quotes, but you forgot I am not Spokesman for MSNBC, so I’m not responsible for answering for them.

          • Retired military

            And Chico chooses option E. Ohhhh A shiney
            Not a big surprise.

            Also Chico doesn’t take his own advice

            “As I said before, try answering what people say, and not try to put words in others’ mouths, debate goes better” – Chico, Famed Wizbangblog poster

            How about practising what you preach Chico.

            1 Oprah,the Lamestream media, Reid, Pelosi, and other major dems have called people racist simply because they oppose Obama’s
            policies. Yet when they oppose those same policies when espoused by Bill, Hillary. Reid, Pelos, Gore, Kerry, etc etc they weren’t considered racist then by Oprah, etc etc (I don’t know isn’t good enough)
            Do you feel that it is because the left is just playing the race card?

            2. People were called racist anarchist terrorists when they tried to delay Obamacare yet Al Franken who did the same thing wasn’t called Racist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the call just playing the race card because that is all they have?

            3. People were called racist anarchist terrorist when they called for the delay of all or part of Obamacare and Obama who is unconstitutionally doing the same thing is not called a racist anarchist terrorist. Do you feel that it is because he is a democrat and the people doing the calling are just playing the race card because that is all they have?

            4. Chico stated ” They (duck dynasty guys) were clean shaven before they pitched the TV show.” yet you provided zero proof of this statement. Please do so now.

            Examples of statements 1, 2, and 3 (since you reject the premise)

            Salon writer Joan Wals
            It’s simply stunning: Longtime Republican imagemaker Ailes figured out how to make sure that our twice-elected Democratic president, backed by a coalition that represents an emerging, multiracial America, must periodically be checked and hopefully shamed by a representative of the angry right-wing white male minority that barely considers him a legitimate leader…

            O’Reilly and Ailes and their viewers see this president as unqualified and ungrateful, an affirmative action baby who won’t thank us for all we’ve done for him and his cohort. The question was, of course, deeply condescending and borderline racist. Obama has been afforded “so much opportunity”? What about O’Reilly, who pretends he’s a working-class son of Levittown, Long Island, when he’s actually the kid of an accountant who grew up in Westbury and went to private high school and university

            If racism is not the whole of the Tea Party, it is in its heart, along with blind hatred, a total disinterest in the welfare of others, and a full-flowered, self-rationalizing refusal to accept the outcomes of elections, or the reality of democracy, or the narrowness of their minds and the equal narrowness of their public support.”
            — MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Countdown, March 22, 2010.

            “The interesting question is: what is it about this President that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the office of the President? Why do Republicans think this President is unpresidential — unpresidential, and shouldn’t dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008, or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin.”

            You notice he [Romney] says ‘anger’ twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama. The other-ization, he’s not like us. I know it’s a heavy thing to say. I don’t say it lightly. But this is niggerization, ‘You are not one of us,’ and that ‘you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.’”

            They hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al Qaeda. Their number one enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred — hatred for Obama. We can go into that about the white working class in the South, and looking at these numbers we’re getting in the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases. This isn’t about being a better president. They want to get rid of this president. That’s their number one goal and they’re willing to let Romney go to the hard center, even if it’s to the left on issues, as long as they get rid of this guy.”
            — Chris Matthews during MSNBC’s post-debate coverage, October 22, 2012

            “I look at Obama as a perfect American. I don’t mean politically. We can disagree left and right on him. You can argue about the drones. Argue about the fiscal policy, all that stuff. But as a citizen. The guy went to school, he never broke a law. He did everything right. He raised a wonderful family. He’s a good husband, a good father. My God I don’t think he’s ever gotten a speeding ticket. The guy does everything right and these right-wingers — and he’s really been pretty moderate on guns until the horror of Newtown — and I don’t know what they’re so afraid of, except that he happens to be black.”
            — Host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 6, 2013

            What does your study tell you about the nature of the racial piece here of the Tea Party?…Is it sort of a resumption of the Old South, of the way things were before the Civil War, for example? Is it like that old dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies, Gone With the Wind? Is it that kind of America they want to bring back or what? When there were no gays, where blacks were slaves, Mexicans were in Mexico? I mean, is this what they want?”
            — Chris Matthews to author Christopher Parker on MSNBC’s Hardball, March 20, 2013

            The problem is there are people in this country — maybe 10 percent, I don’t know what the number, maybe 20 percent on a bad day — who want this President to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn’t President….They can’t stand the idea that he is President, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group. So what? It is the sense that the white race must rule. That’s what racism is. And they can’t stand the idea that a man who is not white is President.”
            — Chris Matthews appearing as a guest on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, May 15, 2013

            “The IRS is being used in exactly the same way as they tried to use the President’s birth certificate…Despite the complete lack of any evidence linking the President to the targeting of Tea Party groups, Republicans are using it as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House….This afternoon, we welcome the latest phrase in the lexicon of Republican attacks on this President — the IRS.

At least they were honest back then….[Today] you’ve got people talking about nullification of the law of the land [ObamaCare]. You got people talking impeachment like [Senator Tom] Coburn. You got Ted Cruz out there. They never say their problem with Obama is that he’s black, but look at the pattern….At least the Daughters of the American Revolution knew what they were saying and they said it out loud: ‘He’s black, she’s black, she can’t sing here.’ These guys today use all the techniques of nullification and talking about illegitimacy and accusing the President of being a crook, basically, for even being president, because he’s here illegally. And then they talk about impeaching him on grounds they can’t even come up with. At least in the old days they were honest about it. Today, they’re not.”

            ¦ “I want to talk today about a controversial word….A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments…. Y’all know the word that I’m talking about: ‘ObamaCare.’”

Rick Perry of referring to Obama in racial terms when he described the national debt as a “big black cloud” hanging over the heads of the American people.

            Reporter Lawrence O’Donnell accused Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of using a “racial double-entendre” when McConnell complained that Obama spends too much time golfing;

And, I mean, they won’t (laughs), they’re not going to let conservatives watch MSNBC, fine! You’re not even going to notice that. How many conservatives, seriously, are watching Ed Schultz or Rachel Maddow, you know, or Al Sharpton every night?

            HOLDEN: I want to see how this probation looks and when it ends. (Alluding to RNC chair Reince Priebus’s response to Cheerios ad tweet). And what, you know, is there going to be a soft landing from the probation? This is kind of silly at this point.

            PRESS: It is and, you know, first of all, good for Cheerios for bringing that spot back and not bowing into the pressure and as far as this tweet goes, again, “maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everybody else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” that’s the truth. That is the truth! The right winger, the racist right winger will hate it. Everybody else will like it. It’s a beautiful spot.

            Sorta puts the lie to the his little “I don’t care about party affiliation” bull shit doesn’t it? Seems he cares about little else.

          • jim_m

            I would take the “I don’t care about party affiliation” to mean that he doesn’t believe that there should be more than one party.

            Maybe when he grows up (and makes it to 15 or so) his ideas will change a bit.

          • jim_m

            Unlikely. Take a look at this comment he left at ABC News:

            The benefit of ACA is that it will curtail the unbelievable cost overruns the private insurance companies have been doing and shaving 1/3 of our domestic GDP.

            Obviously this is not fact based because all of health care is ~18% of GDP. That’s 1/6th. So somehow he expects people to believe that the health insurance industry is taking 200% of the GDP that the entire healthcare segment of the economy generates. This non factual BS is pernicious and runs throughout everything he posts (like his claim that the libertarian leaning Kochs are communists).

            Severe mental retardation like this often has a genetic component. I doubt that he will be able to overcome it.

          • Jwb10001

            He’s loves Obamacare and at the same time surely believes it’s a great idea to delay implementation. These people are unbelievable.

    • jim_m

      I posted 7 links to demonstrate that the media has a liberal bias. Heck, one of them even was an article where they admit their bias.

      Yet you refused to address the substance of those comments and chose instead to run away.

      Profile of the typical leftist:
      1) thinks they are smarter than everyone else
      2) believe that their great wisdom gives them the right to run everyone else’s lives
      3) spouts loads of ignorant crap that has no basis in fact
      4) when confronted with facts runs away or changes the subject.

      As soon as you want to address the facts I posted to counter your bullshit there can be a real discussion.

      • Retired military

        Lefties like Wesley and Chico don’t want to discuss. They want to fling poo and run away like scared little bitches.

      As to #9 –

      Jefferson Davis
      Bull Connor
      Nathan Bedford Forest
      George Wallace

      All Democrats.

      Dems:
      – formed 100% of the Confederate government
      – passed the Jim Crow laws
      – defeated anti-lynching legislation in the 1920′s
      – filibustered the Civil Rights Act
      – opposed the creation of the Civil Rights Commission
      – founded the KKK

      Racist? Take a look in a mirror Wesley. You will surely find a racist there.

        I know those old Southerners were Democrats, just as the Republicans of the day were considered radicals, but doesn’t it come down to the fact that those men, like our politicians of today, were more interested in centralizing and maintaining power?

        Regardless of party affiliation, it seems to me that most politicians are motivated to Balkanize America into small, easily controlled camps. Ones that can be controlled and manipulated more easily from a centralized location, greatly influenced by a small cabal of power brokers. This is countered by those who truly believe in individualism and personal responsibility coinciding with limited government.

        Thus, I think it might be a bit unfair to call Democrats the “true” racists because of the actions of some old Southern gentleman, just as it’s unfair to say the same thing about Republicans for supporting enforcement of immigration laws. I think the true test is whether you support individual liberty or collectivization, regardless of letter after surname…am I wrong?

        • jim_m

          I think that the degree to which one supports liberty and the degree to which one believes in equality between the races are measured on different axes. History proves that one can believe quite strongly in liberty and freedom and still be a racist.

          So yes, you are wrong.

      7. Benefits directly from the ACA but really, really hates Obamacare.

      Exactly who benefits from obamacare? Certainly not the uninsured since only 10% of the uninsured have signed up for it. And according to the study half of those who have signed up have not paid so their plans will be cancelled.

      So what obamacare is really doing is canceling the insurance plans of people who already have insurance and forcing them into more expensive plans that ultimately make them and their families poorer.

      In fact Gallup has released a poll showing that 63% of Americans say that obamacare has had no effect in improving their lives, 23% say that it has made their lives worse. Only 10% say that it has helped (the remaining 4% presumably undecided).

      Whatever happened to the left’s concern that the nation was in a crisis over health insurance and that obamacare would save the 47 million people without insurance? I guess it was just more ignorant, utopian, lefty bullshit.

      So what your position boils down to is a big F you to the American public, that we should do what we are told, that it is for our own good and moral superiors like yourself are better positioned to determine what is best for each and every individual American that those individuals are themselves.

      The only people seemingly benefiting from obamacare are the fascist left that have some perverted desire to control the lives of people they don’t know.

    You guys act like a crowd of dyke women’s studies professors from Smith or Wellesley when a Democrat guy is charged with anything involving a woman. Hard-core feminists, who woulda thought?

    • jim_m

      Trust the lefty to come out with a comment that is simultaneously homophobic and misogynistic.

      • Commander_Chico

        You prove my point by throwing around gay PC words like “homophobic and misogynistic.”

        • jim_m

          I prove that I have mastered the English language and can use it effectively to express myself. You demonstrate your resentment of those who actually have intelligence and ability, just like any other freeloading lefty, and you project your bigoted views on everyone around you while harboring deep seated hate toward minorities, gays and women.

          • Commander_Chico

            You’ve mastered political cant like a queer critical theory professor.

            “Homophobic” is a foolish word, it means “fear of the same” from the Greek roots. “Misogynist” means anyone not following the feminist agenda. Both “leftist” terms used to silence dissent.

          • jim_m

            Sigh. So much you know just simply ain’t so.

            From Websters:
            Misogyny – a hatred of women

            Homophobia – irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals

            Apart from you attempt to duck the issue that you are prejudiced against women and gays, the etymological roots of words are not as important in this context as the actual vernacular usage.

            As long as I can remember your posts have been full of bigoted comments against women, gays and minorities. Nothing seems to have changed despite your recent release from prison.

          • Retired military

            Chico always ducks the issue. That is his option E. Ooohh a shiney.
