“McConnell endorsed Bevin’s candidacy…McConnell is skipping a state Republican Party dinner on Saturday, where Bevin is the keynote speaker, because he said he must return to Washington to prepare for a special Sunday session and try to avert the expiration of the Patriot Act.”
What a piece of work Lib-Prog Mitch the B-otch McConnell is. Someone teach this nuisance how to read the writing on the wall.
Way to go Bevin. Take the state by storm and then work to clean out every last Proglodyte Lib in the KY GOP Party Leadership. I’m sure they can get great new jobs with the Dem party…similar values.

Registered Republican, but Tea Party principles advocate – which means that I’m hated by establishment R’s like Orin “Sometimes I just want to smash those Tea Party people in the mouth” Hatch.
Cher, you’re hanging around with the most hateful crowd I can imagine just after ISIS. During the “McCarthy era” it was not the majority of America that were black-listing writers and actors. It was the Hollywood crowd and a Dem Majority Congress. Joe may not have been a D, but the D’s made political hay with the House and Senate hearings. They all did it wholly for financial and power grabbing reasons, not because they were great bastions of liberty and freedom.

Re-writers of history love this putz’ take for what was going on with 90% marginal rates during the Eisenhower years. They purposely ignore that every penny of this was written and codified under FDR and Truman, prior to Dwight’s arrival.
Eisenhower had a huge majority Dem congress throughout his terms. Congress had been lobbied to provide incredible exceptions to the 90%; things that the Media propagandists called “loopholes”. These included exemptions on income for things like race horses and huge real-estate construction projects (usually Union-built projects) which led to high vacancy rates in very expensive buildings. Lobbyists influenced Congress to move money from personal choice and towards the financial benefit of the Associations represented by them.
The reduction in marginal tax rates during the Reagan era happened only with the closure of the “loopholes”. This led to dumping of real estate investments and eventually to bailouts of banking who had underwritten a lot of these projects. Talking heads always fail to note it was majority Dem Congress as well.
When we dropped marginal tax rates, revenues to the Government increased because it freed more capital up for individuals to purchase and invest where they wanted to, not where Democrats and libs (Rs included) said to.

Juan chuckles at her remark, only because he is too stupid to recognize that he is what she paints him to be, or at minimum, a friend of the bully’s gang that he is cowering behind when the fight begins.
With the exceptions of these little snippets, for me, when Juan comes on the channel is changing or I”m hitting the off button.
I cannot stand him. I flip the channel just so I don't hear his voice.... or mute it till he is gone. I don't have a problem with hearing all sides of an argument, but there is just something about him that radiates stupidity and grinds on my last nerve. People portray him as being so intelligent, but I don't see it. His reasoning process confuses the crap out of me.
Juan is still in a delusional state after thinking his severe black shoe polish hair dye really did take the old and ugly off of him.
Yeah, I'm getting a little sick of Juan, always cowtowing to Obama and now Hillary. Talk about a Liberal that knows what side his bread is buttered on. And FOX hires this guy straight from a Liberal den of wolves, NPR. In one way it's a good thing. At least we know how Liberals always act and don't have to switch to CNBC. lol
Juan has no opinion that Obama hasn't given him. He is a sad, sad man.

Behind every successful man should be a woman carrying a .45 to protect his wallet.
Bet, she really handed her hubby the gun just to make him look like the hero.
Good shootin’ Mam, despite the perp’s still drawing breath.

Monk – I concur.
Deadie Freddie wanted steady Frankies to stuff in his mattress beddie.
So Deadie Freddie dun bashed his headie into the Patty wagon’s bolties.
He didn’t intend to break his necky, but that’s what happened any the hecky.
His RAP Sheet’s prior’s make your hand’s all sweaty,
Selling and doin’ and carrying knifies, not the kind you likey ’round the kids and wifey.
Deadie Freddie you’ve gone the way of all the other thuggies.
You’re never gonna see the day that comes where you have to wear big man Huggies.
Not gonna miss you Freddie.
Not gonna miss you for a second.
That AG needs to be put in the back of a Patty Wagon and driven around for an hour.
As for the fired bouncer, lawyer up, ’cause if ever there were a wrongful termination suit this would be it.

It’s never a right given, but one claimed as divine in origin, was never solely for protection against a government gone awry. It has always been to protect yourself, family, and others in your community from those who would harm or oppress. It was also useful for feeding your family.
As for the lunatic College President. Why doesn’t he ask that question of all of those Christians captured by ISIS troops?…because they’re all dead now, genius.
The buffoonery that passes for education these days. You’d learn more at the Ringling Brothers Clown College or McDonald’s Hamburger U.
The apostle Peter owned a sword in his day…probably would have opened carried if they had hand guns. When one of the guards attempted to seize upon his master, Peter cut the guard’s ear off. A 14 round clip might have come in handy that evening, but hey, it was swords night.
If I remember correctly, (and I don’t anymore) the guards were not Roman Troops but part of the religious guard that would have been under the control of the ruling religious leadership, who went to arrest Him that evening. The charges were trumped up, the trial was a sham and was absolutely outside of Levidical law’s legal prescription, the prisoner was abused while in custody, etc. and eventually he was wrongfully accused of treason, sent to the Roman authority where after further abuse by a government, admittedly an innocent, was killed.
The should own guns.
Really??? If you read their own words it is pretty clear that they gave the right to keep and bear arms exclusively for protection of the citizens from "government gone awry."
“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government…..” – Alexander Hamilton Federalist #28
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”
–Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).
“Whereas civil-rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as military forces, which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”
– Tench Coxe, in Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution
“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356
” … but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights …”
– Alexander Hamilton speaking of standing armies in Federalist 29

I wonder if they ask for your Facebook and G-mail passwords on the job application?
I’d bet the insurance coverage for Al Queda doesn’t pay double indemnity for job related injuries or maiming. Can you imagine the forms you have to fill out for dependent coverage if you’ve got 7 wives and 37 children?
As for the”fairly large library of pornography videos”…If it were G on G or B on B or T on T action, they would have released it to the world and had a State Department memo with links in it.
The B on B stuff? It was held back by Obozo for his private collection.

Hypocrisy has many faces…I’ve just noticed that more of those faces are of liberals lately.
I was going to mention Mitch McConnell and John Boehner’s faces, but I don’t know that one could really say that they have a face. They do however, seem to have two faces, both of them looking very hypocrite like.

That her daughter understands the concept of shame is such a key ingredient here.
That alone tells me something about Mom. I’m sure she’ll recover from this major shaming. Whether or not she forgives her mother for the public shamming seems to matter less to Mom than Mom just doing her job, teaching her child to become an upstanding member of the family and the community.
That her Mom has to make note of the “dead-beat dad” I hope is something that might shame him, but I doubt it will.
As soon as the daughter takes down the bad-girl info on Facebook, she ought to take down the public shaming video on both of their websites. Regardless, it will be out there for a long long time both the shaming and the shameful.
Being young, stupid, and inexperienced changes only with time, learning, and experience. I hope she makes it to fulfill the role her mother hopes for her.

Aced but a lot of the answers miss the mark on a lot of the true history. The responses I provided were what I believe were common accepted notions, not necessarily the truth of the history.
Aced it too. And agree with you. The Reconstruction question pissed me off but that is a sore spot.
tcpubelle: Continue, please! Where exactly do you question the common accepted notions? Some doubt that Patrick Henry really said "Give me liberty or give me death." Reconstruction actually did involve some physical reconstruction in the South, as well as (partial and imcomplete) repair of North-South relations. Elsewhere I've questioned the question about the early colonists, and the precise definition of a "republican" form of government.
