This is from the Huffington Post. More after the break.

  1. Dallas says:

    #38 The reason is that Democrats are made up of individuals who vote their individual opinion. You cannot guarantee they vote in unison.

    In contrast, the Republicans are spineless maggots that vote whatever the queen maggot of the week has to say.

  2. ridin the short bus says:

    The Health care reform and all the arguments that go along with it are really a euphomism for whats wrong with America… we can no longer figure out whats good for us or bad for us…we have become a misguided band of idiots roaming around like a blind cat running into trees, walls and garbage cans…. shouting about topic of the day, soon to be forgotton in 6 monthes, while the real issues are never tackled of fixed… Their should be term limits to congress people, most of the senate are long time washington insiders that have long forgot what it was like to live in their home states…and no longer represent the folks, they only vote their pocket…….the system in principle is good, but in the current version is broken. I dont believe even FDR could succeed in todays environment.

  3. ridin the short bus says:

    #39 like the line form the movie “Hunt for Red October…”

    “GO DALLAS”………

  4. Wightout says:

    The name calling is quite childish. On both sides. and has brought me to the conclusion that none of you have anything but name calling to back up your allegations. Reading the comments was a severe waste of my time… This place has really gone south man.

    Normally I come here to listen to people who are more informed then I, but name calling? lmao my siblings do this. You all should be ashamed to represent your political persuasion with name calling. Do none of your have a stronger and more articulate use of the english language?


  5. right says:

    Wightout – If you came here abnormally you’d see what all the fuss is about.

  6. Ah_Yea says:

    Ok, Dallas, let me get this straight.

    It’s OK to vote against healthcare reform if your a Democrat because you are “an individual”, but if you are a Republican you are a “spineless maggot”.

    Or could it be that the Republicans are individuals voting their conscience and most Democrats are “spineless maggots” voting whatever the “Queen maggot” dictates?

    Maybe the “Queen maggot” has another reason for pushing this through without proper debate?

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s push for a national health care overhaul is providing a financial windfall in the election offseason to Democratic consulting firms that are closely connected to the president and two top advisers.

    Coalitions of interest groups running at least $24 million in pro-overhaul ads hired GMMB, which worked for Obama’s 2008 campaign and whose partners include a top Obama campaign strategist. They also hired AKPD Message and Media, which was founded by David Axelrod, a top adviser to Obama’s campaign and now to the White House. AKPD did work for Obama’s campaign, and Axelrod’s son Michael and Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe work there.”

    After all, it’s just good’ole Illinois politics!

  7. Ah_Yea says:

    And again, here is the upside.

    Health care reform is on the front burner. People are talking about it. Action of some sort will be taken.

    This is all good. The big mistake was Obama trying to shove it up our backsides like the Stimulus plan. Now, if the Dems were smart (good luck), they will take a step back and slow down. Engage in constructive debate, soothe frayed nerves, respond appropriately.

    It may take a couple of years, and everyone should be prepared for the wait. But at the end, most of the people will be on board and things will be better.

  8. Wightout says:

    #43 right

    I have been reading DU on and off for quite some time, and I do not think that I have ever seen so much name calling back and forth before.

    Whether or not there is all this amazing fuss you speak of name calling voids your argument. It is a tactic used by people who lack the ability to make a valid rebuttal.

  9. Ah_Yea says:

    Wightout, exactly.

  10. noname says:

    # 45 Ah_Yea, “take a step back and slow down. … It may take a couple of years, and everyone should be prepared for the wait. But at the end, most of the people will be on board and things will be better.”

    Where have you been??

    American’s have been waiting since 1901, when Theodore Roosevelt promised America a “Square Deal”, a fair shake for both the average citizen and the businessman (through big business regulations, transportation and pure food and drugs). He was the first U.S. president to call for universal health care and national health insurance.

    Where have you been??

    Waiting, slowing down is a fools game. GWB knew this when he crammed his agenda down America’s throat.

    Yes, let’s do this right, but; as the saying goes, “you must strike while the iron is hot”.

  11. Ah_Yea says:

    HAAA!! HAAA!!! Oh, noname, that was so funny!!

    HAAA!! Oh, I can’t stop laughing!

    So you are in favor of forcing everyone to accept what you think is right??!!

    HAAA!!!, Oh stop it, you’re killing me!!

    You’re kidding, aren’t you?? You must be kidding, right??

    After all, the healthcare bill stalled last session exactly because smug, elitist politicians did exactly what you are suggesting.

  12. noname says:

    Sorry, typical RePUCKaTons spin, the kettle calling the pot black.

    “So you are in favor of forcing everyone to accept what you think is right??!!”

    It’s all the RePUCKaTons that are calling anyone and everyone a NAZI, nonsensical or not, are the ones forcing their death agenda on America.

  13. deowll says:

    “This is the polluted environment that allows the repugnant party to live on.”

    Based on this I take it you would kill them if you could? Charming! You don’t have much toleration for people who disagree with you do you? An egalitarian is what you aren’t.

  14. qb says:

    One bit of advice for the Democrats: don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.

  15. Tyrant says:

    There are plenty of fun protest signs to be found here.

  16. Mr. Fusion says:

    #54, doill,

    Let me remind you of what you wrote in another post.

    It would appear that a lot of people posting here like to use smear tactics when they run into people who don’t agree with their views.

    I don’t admire the tactic or the people that use it. Any cause they support is automatically dubious until proven other wise.

    So you continue to make your crap up. You can’t argue facts because you don’t have any.

  17. Uncle Patso says:

    “…Post roads…”

    Oops! Missed that one! Interstates are OKAY! (YAY!)

  18. chaimbitton says:

    Speaking of spell check, there is a good program Spell Check Anywhere (SpellCheckAnywhere.Com) it adds spell check to all programs.

  19. Mr. Fusion says:

    #57, Zitface,

    There are plenty of fun protest signs to be found here.

    Just another attempt to shamelessly steer people to a far left site. Try a little easier approach next time, you might get some visitors who aren’t turned off by the blatant lie.

  20. Rick Cain says:

    “Youth In Asia” is an old Benny Hill joke, and it still never fails to make me laugh.

  21. anonymous says:

    Maybe if there were no factions, no parties to blame, there would be no separation between Americans. It is “We the people,” not “We the individual parties that separate and divide us”. George Washington warned us of the use of factions in his “Farewell Address”.
    But, no, we cannot leave factions because we would lose our “American identity”.

    We all want change, but none will deliver it.
    We all accuse the other of wrong doings, but we do not have a way to fix it.
    We all say the other is doing a horrible job, but we cannot do the job either.
