    There is an easy way to self-censor your own comments here on TB before you rant. All you need do is ax yourself:

    “How would a conservative answer?”
    “How would a liberal answer?”

    Assuming you know the difference between a conservative and a liberal, then don’t take the self-titillating juvenile path of the scurrilous lib. Man up and comment like a true son or daughter of liberty. Eschew the mob. Be original, interesting, and offer a solution along with an opinion.

    My comment fell right above yours ArmedAndReallyPissed. Yep, we voted ourselves into this mess and it is up to us to vote ourselves out of it. Until then nothing changes except the dogs and ponies.

    DaRyuujin comments:

    “DaRyuujin -Aug. 1, 2014 at 2:06am
    I like watching him verbally own people..but my question is has he/is he actually getting anything done?”

    Let me ask a Gowdy type question of you. Is it not true that even more than the truth the liberal loves a good circus show? In other words the seriousness of the charge outweighs the truth of the charge?

    I love Gowdy as much as the rest of you…BUT… DaRyuujin has made THE point and we need to face facts. Since 2009 it has been ALL talk and now it’s time to answer the question… Are we liberals or conservatives? Do we simply love a good show or do we demand action.

    For me, I say it is five years past time when action counts far more than star ratings and this applies even to Trey Gowdy.

    The hourly casualty count of the Palestinians…on EVERY U.S. news channel…

    Were it 1500 Israelis and counting instead of the other way around Hamas would be celebrating in the streets and our news channels wouldn’t be reporting it.

    Very fishy comment.

    …Yes, but you took the bait.

    I worried about sharknados for decades now, particularly since January of 2009.

    Other folks don’t worry with sharknados and most of them have led a much less stressful existence. Most could not tell you what a shark nor a nado is, and they still manage to lead useful lives and have fun.

    By and by I am weaning myself off sharknado news. Like, what difference have I made in the last few years doing all that studying, wishin’ and hopin’, and opinionating?

    The world will still turn just as well without me tomorrow if I have a heart attack today worrying about sharknados that I can’t do one blessed thing about. Sharks don’t care.

    I’m with you in wishin’ and hopin’ progressiveslayer but you are beating a dead horse. I have bloodied my head banging it against that brick wall. The reality is that we’re further away from that goal than ever. It will take years if we start today to turn it around. For example, it’s much easier to turn a coal plant off than to turn one back on. So what we gonna do in the meantime? That’s what is keeping your’s truly MrOT awake at night.

    I hate these * just wait until you hear this* stories. Either give us the report or shut up until it is available.”

    At the conclusion of the arkle I thought…”Ok, I have NO idea what this means. And then I read momrules comment. Thanks for vindication my first impression!

    Then I read this…”WorriedNVMom -Jul. 30, 2014 at 7:49pm
    Like this….“This country is, I believe, going to be rocked in the next 24 hours with some things that are going on in Washington and beyond that we found out about yesterday.

    TB and Glenn. You are very very close to playing the democrat-like propaganda game here. Or at least the Midnite Enquirer space aliens and fur coats that bite game. A substantial percentage of your audience is not stupid.

    One very important point you missed

    How you figure I missed that point elfribo? Did you read what I wrote? Obama may be the sole reason, but it’s pretty obvious to me that chances are better than 50/50 that somebody else is pulling his strings on this. Why? Who?

    Somebody out there is looking years out on this thing. And the kids? Future low wage slaves to who? Poor folks? I think not.

    Previously the nation could absorb the influx of foreigners, but because of our perilous finances and the sheer numbers, this time around we can’t.

    Guys, guys. We’re sitting ducky today. Ten to twenty years out or maybe even sooner this chicken is going to come home to roost big time. Think long term fellas.

    “Aside from way off in the future when the illegals can vote….” What?
    Many of these are teenagers now…..they will vote in 2016

    Yes, many will vote. Many dead people will vote…but illegals can’t vote legally. C’mon Tired_of_Pastels.

    makingout -Jul. 29, 2014 at 7:42pm
    He “squeaked by” as a result of a Democrap Senate.

    Sorry to argue makingout but I was around and saw it all. The majority of the public, good republicans too were not for it or at best ambivalent. The reason? Greed pure and simple. The country was doing very well for a change. Clinton was bleeding off the wealth created by Reagan. Folks didn’t want that to change. You won’t find that in the Google synopses, but that was the core reason Clinton lied his way out. IF the people had been against him the congress would have followed resoundingly. Twas greed uplifted the beast.

    Truth be told I’m pretty cynical over this immigration mess. This isn’t this country’s first go around you know.

    First it was the Irish and China people for the railroads. Then it was the Mexicans for the chicken house operations. The country dealt with it.

    But this time around the only reason I can see to import so many Mexicans is to be slaves to rich folks. All the chicken house jobs are taken, you see.

    Look at it from a supply and demand standpoint. Aside from way off in the future when the illegals can vote….who does this serve? Not you and me. We want them to go home. Who then? Who is powerful enough to see to it that this madness continues?

    So, how many duly elected governors so far have sent nasty mail to the president over this issue? They keep sending and not telling….and getting away with it. Might as well have stamped DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE all over the letter.

    In the meantime you have heard of the new holding facility in McAllen Texas to hold up to 1000 illegals. Right? I pray to the Almighty that the gubment upgrades those facilities, because today it’s them. Tomorrow it is US!

    Wayne, you’re a pipe-dreamer. You may be 100% correct but you are still pipe-dreaming.

    I upvoted you Guitar Man. But a question. Whose destiny? His or ours? I’ll hold my opinion until after I hear yours.

    Real world? The only way Obama will be impeached is if the American people …and….and…. the news media demand it. Then it’s a slam dunk.

    Measured against history, Obama has performed impeachment miracles galore. He’s not the problem. WE are the problem. Nothing less than a miracle, it seems, of our own, will serve to propel us off our butts to demand that he go.

    In the meantime, he operates at will like a maggot in the rotting underbelly or our once prideful nation.

    The genesis of Obama goes back at least to Clinton who lied and survived with the explicit help of a greedy and ignorant citizenship. We knew he was bad but enough of us looked the other way so that he squeaked by, setting a precedent that Obama even today fulfills.

    Charity is the hallmark western civilization, the flower being the good old USA. Can anyone cue up similar examples from the eastern bloc or the third world? I’m sure there has got to be some. Anyone?

    There isn’t much room for charity in socialism, tribalism, and communism. They don’t have a spare hat to pass around.

    Just me. It depends. It’s never a smart thing to hit a woman. That’s well known by any man with a half a brain. However, if a woman strikes first, then it’s the right thing to do to defend oneself. Just common sense. But the man will pay a price. Best to stay out of these situations in the first place because the man always loses.

    BTW, when is the last time you saw a “smart man” commercial for anything on TV?

    Beck is in recycle mode. Not saying he isn’t right. As a matter of fact I started battening down the hatches the last time around he brought this up. But he’s definitely bored and running on steam and rehashing.

    I watched the first half of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s first TV performance. That was as much as I could stand. He’s pretty much everything I expected he would be. Very mouthy. All talk. All fluff all the time. Pun generator. No substance. Difficulty answering the question put to him. Democrat lite.
