sgtjarhead, apparently your missing the point. This isn’t just about keeping a majority. This is about getting rid of the RINO’s. You are absolutely right about keeping your job over the majority. But I think it would be far more telling if we could get rid of Bohner and still keep the Majority. In the next election, I’ll be begging and pleading for those who are in Bohner’s district to either not vote, or vote Democrat. That distinct is fairly conservative, and a democrat would only hold that seat for two years. This would allow the republicans to have a clean primary free of a house lifer and a true conservative may actually win. Just pick 2 or 3 of these seats as needed with the worst of the worst RINO’s every election. But more importantly, make it a national campaign. Run ad’s on TV nationally explaining what is being done. An example. “Hi, I’m Bob. You don’t know me, and I’m not running for office, so I wont be asking for your vote. If your like me, A republican and your tired of Big Government Progressives like I am, then you see that John Bohner isn’t the answer. That’s why I urge you to not vote in this election for US. House seat. Send a clear message to congress that A demacrat is no different than John Bohner. I’m bob, and of behalf of all conservatives. I approved this message.”

Its about the only plan that would work. Just pick them off 3 at a time. Start with the high profile leadership, and it could work faster than even I think. But if you start allowing deomcrats to win in fairly safe districts like Bohners and a few other RINO’s. The rest of them have to see the writing on the wall. And if they don’t. In the next cycle, just choose their district to exercise the clean sweep plan.

I would also start in fairly safe republican districts, so that winning the seat back in 2 years would be easier than winning a battle ground district. Just pick some sacrificial seats of RINOs that nobody likes and start giving them up to lose in the next election. After 2 or 3 cycles you’d see so many RINO’s move to the right out of fear that they could be next.
The elites are incapable of learning. They don't care if they hold the majority or not as long as they keep their jobs.A third party is our only hope and probably not realistic one either.

Unfortunately, abandoning the three party system will not work at this time. It will only divide the republicans leaving the democrats with a clear majority to run over us. Having said that, there isn’t much opposition as it sits now. With these limp noodle republicans that are afraid of getting negative press by a media that already hates them. But, to be effective the tea party wing needs to take control of the republican party.
How do we do that?
The Tea Party needs to pick three house races in the next term that we are willing to give up.
For me the preference should be the ineffective leadership. So, John Bohner will run again in 16. Instead of running a Tea Party guy against Bohner in a primary that could lose thus allowing Karl Rove to sit on TV saying, “See I told you so, the tea party has gone to far to the right.” What needs to happen is the people in these three districts just don’t vote at all. Let three democrats win those three seats. This would send a huge message to big government republicans that we would rather have anything over you. (The key is to limit this to three seats so we can still keep a majority.)
Just pick three limp noodle republicans per cycle and beg and plead republicans in that district to NOT VOTE AT ALL. Send them a message that we are willing to allow a democrat in that seat over having RINO. Then win that seat back 2 years later in a clean primary with a true conservative.

Hey – wake up – the democrats already have a “clear majority to run over us.” It’s called the RINO wing/Republican leadership. However, I think you may have a good plan to defeat this pathetic excuse for a conservative party. Your plan actually makes sense and could work. I am just about ready to not bother voting anymore after this, anyway.

“See the movie that Roger Ebert calls A knockout. Ghosts of Mississippi 2.”
“Up Next on ESPN, Former Ravens Running back Ray Rice has new music career cut short.”
Before I come to a conclusion about how I should feel, I like to get all the information first. I can’t wrap my head around one thing. At what point did this woman think it would be okay to go someplace she is not supposed to be (onstage) and start grinding on someone she doesn’t even know?
If I ran out into the highway and started dancing around in traffic, and was run over by a trucker doing his job, would it be the truckers fault? To some of the usual suspects here on the blaze, I guess they would need to know if the trucker was black or not?
I’m not saying what he did was right. But lets not pretend that this woman isn’t to blame. Had she been where she was supposed to be, then this never would have happened.
I’m all with you. But lets add to that this. NO more business taxes either. I don’t believe a company should pay taxes. People pay taxes, not businesses. A business that employs more people serves more of a purpose than a business that pays a lot in taxes. I’d rather see that money remain in the private sector than in the government.

For all those who say, “I payed into to it, so I should get my money back.” Well your right. You did pay into it. About half as much as you claim you actually did. Remember, your employer was forced to contribute half of what you say you “payed into it.” The reality is, every American child is born into more debt and more debt that they can never hope to pay back. Presidents took your money, not me, so please stay out of my wallet. But there should be a program to help those who can’t afford to care for themselves. Not a social savings account that everyone is entitled to get at a certain age. It should be there for people of a certain age that can’t afford to help themselves. (My wealthy grandmother (registered democrat) is an example. Worth lots of money, but regardless of being worth millions, will absolutly without shame collect her social security check even though the country is in dire straights.) Thank God the Revolution was fought by baby boomers. They would have said, “mine mine mine. I deserve it.” You never hear anyone ever say this anymore. “We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor” I’m simply saying, if you have the means to care for yourself, then do so.
 January 23, 2015 at 11:43pm
He is half right, but entirely hypocritical. It isn’t that the expectations of the American people are to high, and it isn’t that the American people need to adjust to having less. The problem is that most American’s these days think that everything should be provided for them. The problem is that most Americans think that if someone else has something better than they have, then they are disenfranchised. If you refuse to educate yourself. If you refuse to think, create, and promote new ideas, if you refuse to work more than what the minimum expectation is, If you would rather spend your time at home creating babies, if you would rather spend your money on things that prevent you for saving for the future, then yes, your expectations should be adjusted to fit your lifestyle.
American can never be successful again if we don’t.
1. Get control of immigration and seal the boarders. Only letting in legal immigrants.
2. Overhaul entitlements.
A. No more unlimited food stamps, No more unlimited unemployment.
B. Also overhauling Social Security. Raising the minimum age of retirement.
Setting a minimum standard before one can collect. Its social security. Not social savings not social savings account. If you are retired and have money, you should be expected to care for yourself until you don’t have money.
For all those who say, "I payed into to it, so I should get my money back." Well your right. You did pay into it. About half as much as you claim you actually did. Remember, your employer was forced to contribute half of what you say you "payed into it." The reality is, every American child is born into more debt and more debt that they can never hope to pay back. Presidents took your money, not me, so please stay out of my wallet.

You never hear anyone ever say this anymore. “We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor” I'm simply saying, if you have the means to care for yourself, then do so.
I think if we added,
No wages, retirement, or benefits for politicians,
No cooperate welfare for banks, cooperations, or organizations like the NFL,
And no oxygen for community organizers, race baiters, Islamist terrorists and union thugs,
You might just have a winner here.

As someone who grew up in Indianapolis, and loathes the Patriots. I have to say this. While it maybe very likely that the Pats cheated, the colts hardly lost because of that. They only scored 8 points. Deflated balls don’t cause you to miss all those tackles.
True enough, but if you don't play by all the rules, where does it stop?
 January 20, 2015 at 10:38pm
For the love of all things. Joni Ernst, I don’t care about the bread bags you used to put on your feet to keep your shoes dry. I don’t care about the sacrifice your grandparents went through to give you the opportunities. The American People care about their lives. The American people care about their neighbors. She has been in Washington for five minutes and already sound like a seasoned BSer. Shut your mouth when it comes to your personal story because I don’t care. SOLUTIONS, CONSERVATIVE SOLUTIONS. Thats what your elected for. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS.

The terrorists who gunned down those people in France probably used the same justification for their actions. They probably felt that their prophet was slandered. I’m tired of whiny right wing wimps that refuse to go out and fight. They just hide behind words like slander and libel. This is why John Bohner is a wimp. He is afraid the news will call him dirty words for standing up to Obama. Screw Paris, screw islam, screw liberals and screw wimpy right wingers afraid to stand up.
 January 20, 2015 at 2:24pm
As soon as I start having some sympathy for the French, their leaders go out and do something like this.
So let me see if I have this right. An attack in Paris takes place, perpetrated my muslims upset over a cartoon depiction of their fake prophet. The world rally’s around the French and expresses their sympathies and love for free speech. Then Fox news practices free speech and then is threatened with a law suit by a group of people who just got done lecturing the world over free speech. Do the French really not understand why Americans have such indifference for them?
Its sad that liberals see liberty as a bigger threat to freedom than islam.
Free speech does not include libel and slander. That's a point our legal systems agree on. I'm not saying Fox intentionally committed libel and slander, but that would be the basis of the court case.
 January 20, 2015 at 2:15pm
Simple misunderstanding is probably right. But what saddens me is how it got turned into a anti-female thing. The guy who left the note apparently doesn’t just owe this one service woman an apology, but he owes every female an apology. She had me until then. Now she just sounds like a progressive clown. But hey, lady, thanks for your service.
January 20, 2015 at 2:15am
If your confidence comes from what you wear, then your biggest problems are probably that you have trouble dressing yourself in the mornings. If I wore tight pants just maximize the bulge, would you say, “Now there is a man who is confident and comfortable, and I have no problem with him walking around highlighting that thing in public.” or more likely would it be, “That is nasty and nobody wants to see that.” If I’m wearing something that is provocative, then clearly I’m trying to provoke a thought. Its sad you have such a problem with a woman showing modesty in her appearance.
 January 20, 2015 at 1:56am
The problem with Farmgirl, the problem with Liberals, the problem with a lot of illegal immigrants, the problem with fanatical muslims that live here. They all get sick and tired of the problems in their own country. Their solution is to move somewhere else and then implement the same idiotic laws that caused their home countries to be such a mess.
The united states isn’t perfect, and has had a bright history and some negatives to. But all in all, the united states has been the greatest force of good the world has ever seen. The cause of freedom, and individual liberty would be where today without the united states? Liberty is the exception when you look at the history of the world. The history of the world is Fascism, Communism, fudelsim. The history of the world is an elite ruling class dictating what the surfs can and can’t do in the name of royalty and nobility. The united states didn’t invent individual liberty, we just made it possible for the rest of the world to try it. Have we done it perfectly, absolutely not. But only a liberal dolt will draw parallels from an archaic set of laws that have since been abolished to a group of people trying to implement another set of ignorant laws and force them on everyone else, and then call that group victims of southern bigotry.
 January 20, 2015 at 1:46am
Farmgirl I forgot to ask. There is clear evidence that many of those attending the conference want shariah law in the united states. They said so themselves. My question to you is, what evidence do you have that those people would have most likely supported Jim Crowe. Do you think the black woman who they interviewed who said, “We love muslims, we just don’t agree with them.” is a candidate for one of those white, racist, sexist bigots that support Jim Crow.
 January 20, 2015 at 1:43am
Farmgirl, in the slim chance you were right, and we take those who spoke to Watters at face value, and in accordance with those who believe shariah law should be brought to the United States, then I must ask you to please do your part as a woman and keep quite unless spoken to and keep yourself covered at all times. I feel it disrespects these people and their message that you as a woman think you have rights.
So yea, maybe there are pockets in the united states that have a history of discrimination. And possibly, people have relatives who once supported Jim Crowe laws. But I ask you this. What do you find more disgusting, knowing someones relatives once supported racist laws a long time ago, or knowing that people today would prefer you have no rights at all and would be willing to stone you to death or throw acid on you in the name of a mercy killing?
#Don’t be a moron all your life, actually pick up a book and read facts. Stop being a bleeding heart liberal and stand for something.

I think common sense fell away when the world got turned upside down. Common sense would say that if you had a bad day at work, it was just to be called a bad day at work. And people who are willing to donate their hard earned cash would hopefully look for a more noble cause than a pizza guy who had to deal with a couple of jerk customers for 5 minutes. I find it hard to believe that there is a shortage of people with real problems in this world that we could possibly think its normal to donate 20,000 to a guy who had a rough day on the job. The Moral of the story is. This story could have been posted a year ago. I find it hard to believe that people would be willing to donate a dollar to such a cause. But that is just me, when I am charitable, I always try and find a real problem that could use my money.
January 19, 2015 at 11:02pm
Should I wear tight jeans so I can show off my bulge. Would you think that is me being comfortable, or trying to get attention? Or maybe modesty only offends you if its a woman practicing it because that’s the closest some guys ever get to seeing the form of a beautiful woman.
 January 19, 2015 at 10:58pm
Flatriot, do you mean to tell that that 40-50 years ago, women didn’t have shoes. My grandmother, is 84 years old. And her and my grandfather both worked in the same office building up until 3 years ago when he died. To the best of my knowledge, she only had two children and hasn’t had shoe issues since growing up during the depression. If I’m not mistaken, my grandfather also had to make a single pair of shoes last because his family didn’t have money to replace them either. HMMM, weird, her life story completely contradicts your theory of how a woman’s life was in 1965. (Fifty years ago)
