    Silly comment.  That is reality.  But you seem to think you can go "poof" and all Republicans wil disappear.  The inanity of your position is self evident.  Attack all who fail to see the overwhelming socialist domination of America.

    I'll take 100 center-left Obamas over the positions you espouse, which are fun on blogs but which make no difference in the world.

    •  I think the problem is that so many are already (20+ / 0-)

      in pain. And that pain was not of their making. If the top 2% pay 4.6% more in taxes, that won't cause them pain. If they feel anything, it will only be the pain of not getting their way. Somehow we have to dig out of this Repuke-caused mess without taking any more from those who don't have anything left to give. We already bailed those fools out. I think we've done our part.

      you can't be the same TomP I always agree with when you talk like this!

      Further, they are/we are/I am already in pain and I have their damn insurance, but it's worthless to me because it's "poor people's insurance" and if you don't know what that is, ask me.  It's worthless to someone who uses homeopathy for healthcare. The benefits (like dental) are going down in 2013 from $500 to $300!  Is that a joke?  The government is sending a whole bunch of $$$ to my local non-profit healthcare clinic for PILLS and FLU SHOTS and other junk that I have no intention of using. And I refuse to take the pills that kill and make billions for the BIG PHARMA!  No.

      No Tom, I cannot agree with you this time. I hope Obama keeps saying no until they say yes. Actually I would rather he continues to say no, no, no until it's too late.  We don't need the defense budget cuts that will take place with no action.  Good! Let someone in the government stand up and say NO to war and using our money to kill people around the world.

      Nothing personal Tom, but it seems like you are tired or something!
