  •  Leigslative Terrorism (13+ / 0-)

    Rep. Slaughter,

    I think it's high time ambush tactics like this be exposed to the public for what they are:  legislative terrorism.

    Since when did America function best when its elected representatives act like a policy-making guerilla army, ambushing process, booby-trapping oversight and kidnapping the Constitution.

    The Armed Forces supposedly have training manuals and experts dedicated to dealing with insurgencies like this.  

    I think the Democratic Party should borrow a few pages and realize that the war we are fighting isn't abroad.  It's right here.  It's serious.  And it threatens the very nature of our way at life.

    I've seen terrorists on TV.  And they look like the GOP.

    Uncle Sam needs a few more good women and men like you to step up to the plate and fight for our country.

    Reality has a well-known liberal bias.

      It drives me crazy that they're so predictable - every time a reasonable and helpful bill goes through the House or Senate, it will be outvoted by the Republicans.  Every time a bill goes through that helps a major corporation or the rich, it's voted in.  And their machinations for making sure that they get the bill on the floor are just ridiculous.

      Is there no legal way for this behavior to be stopped?

        We're constantly reminded that America doesn't negotiate with terrorists.  How about we stop attempting to accomodate, negotiate with or appease the Al Qaeda wing of the GOP?

        A zero-tolerance policy.

        Hit them hard with constant opposition.  Constant media upstaging.  Strategic outflanking.  Mass represenative walkouts.  Coordinated march-ins.  Stand on our core principles:  freedom and democracy.

        I mean, who is the REAL enemy in the War on Terror.  After 6 long years of the GOP in complete control, it's time to pull the cord and reveal the men behind the curtain.

          the AlQueda wing of the GOP. What a GREAT soundbite.

          Equate THEM with the terrorists. I love it. Make them refute it.

          Because, of course, they can't.

            Great memes need transmitters.  Consider yourself armed and ready to operate as the Voice of America Domestic Signal Station #1.
