    I guess this community has simply become a megaphone for the Democratic Party...Schumer and DiFi?

    •  I actually don't know if Di-Fi is participating. (1+ / 0-)

      I wouldn't be surprised if she was though.

        I see what you did there.  Since I don't pay attention to NN, I figured you were speaking from a person in the know.  I see now that it was sarcasm.  

        Of course, your original point is on the mark, imo.

      you think Dean's 50 state strategy didn't include a bunch of blue dog conservadem candidates.
      Let's skip the GOP-type bullshit purity tests and let all factions of the party make their case--doesn't mean their views have to represent most of the party or the platform.

      you can shit on my face but that doesn't mean I have to lick my lips

      •  Purity tests? Really? (0+ / 0-)

        This isn't about a purity test, this is about having an actual Democrat.  What good is a Democrat who shills for Wall Street (Schumer) or one who shills for the MIC (DiFi)?

        •  I apologize--- (0+ / 0-)

          Chuckie Schumer is our Sen from the great State of New York---and I apologize for that,

          I shouldn't HAVE to---but I do.

          How we have that guy even IN the State is a puzzlement to me and many others.  Seems as if he should be a rep from some Southern State---Georgia perhaps.

          Has NY lost business since he has been in office (since about forever---term limits anyone???)  Has NY lowered it's tax rates?  Brought up it's school standards without blaming the evil teachers for the failure of --well---everything?   Has NY decided HOW it is going to pay for the giant bridge it is building (and it IS needed)  but that the State will TELL you they have NO IDEA how it is going to pay for  it and how much it will cost and why they are on one hand making it cheaper and easier for SOME to cross it but others not so much--thus undercutting the pay-back on it?  No?

          Well all of this and more brought to you under Chuckies watch.  

          Oh---and lest we forget---that "Religious Freedom" dealie?  That was Chuckies too.  

          Maybe Georgia is too GOOD for ol' Chuckie.  Alabama anyone?
