  •  I know, I cannot believe Ryan went there and (10+ / 0-)

    I have heard Republicans say..

    Oh well, that was  a long time ago and Biden remarried and had another daughter.

    I go WTF  No child can replace another when a child dies.  The Biden boy's mother never got to see her sons grow up, go to college, get married, have children. The boys kids will never have the chance to meet their biological grandma and their aunt.   The boys will always feel the loss and thnk of their mother and imagine her playing with her grandkids and being at their graduations and special occasions.  The Loss never goes away.  People cannot just be replaced Joe;s daughter with Jill will never know her big sister. Joe never got the chance to see his baby girl grow up and probably always wondered what would she be like , what would she be doing now.. The loss is incredible and lasts a lifetime.

    •  GOP=people are fungible widgets; corporations (0+ / 0-)

      are people.

      This is the biggest insight to cross my dim mind in a long time.

      If only I could translate it into plain English.
      Jesus probably did but I'm not up on my Scripture.

      I wish this wouldn't get lost in the gushing firehose of Daily Kos but when it comes to calling Romney and Ryan liars because they lie...........what is really needed is a set of adjectives to add precision to what type of liars they are.

      HOWEVER.....For a clearer understanding of how we might be a hundred years out of date in our thinking that a lie is a lie, see:

      DECLINE OF THE ANANIAS CLUB.

      Note:

      Note: Ananias Club, supposedly named for Ananias who fell dead when he lied to the apostle Peter about a financial transaction, was an expression employed by the press in 1906-1907 to avoid the "short and ugly word" (liar) in connection with the "mutual accusations of in veracity" which arose between President Theodore Roosevelt and Senator Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina over the railroad rate bill. The same expression was later used during the controversy between Roosevelt and the so-called "nature fakers".
