  •  What a disaster... (0+ / 0-)

    Are you all really this clueless?

    If we had 100 representatives like Pete Stark, or even only 50, we would lose every election in a landslide until we got a clue and got rid of them.

    He's too far left even for most Democrats... do you really think a party of his clones could win elections?

    •  In your universe, you would (5+ / 0-)

      But this is America 2007 where Bush gets 24% and 81%want children and their parents and old people and even everybody that needs coverage covered....and a war stopped they didn't sign up for.  

      Stark has won 18 times.  it plays pretty well (telling the truth) lots of other places too.

       YES. See 2006  NH and elsewhere

      BTW,he didn't say it to get reelected. he said it because it needed saying.

      America has been stolen, your citizenship is a hollow fraud, and you have no power. What will YOU do to reverse these hurts, crimes, outrages?

        angry. I don't think you realize how much he spoke for so many. Ohhhhh muffin.... he hurt some tender sensitivities and hurt some feelings. As my old Sgt Major used to say ... " Boo fucking hoo, fucking wah". It's about time some feelings got hurt. Because I am getting goddamn sick of casualty lists.

        Thats what hurts my feelings. Not some words.

          Love the quote from your Sgt Major!

          I'm sick of all the 'protocol' crap, too. The other side has used and abused the Dems in Congress BECAUSE they sit there and take it. Whatever happened to 'Enough IS Enough!'???

          Gets me sick and makes me angry and not only to do we have to fight against the sadists in the White House, but it's becoming more and more apparent that they're being encouraged by some of the Dem leadership.

          Damn right, Enough is enough. 11% and falling...

    •  Clueless? (0+ / 0-)

      Dumbass. What is too far left? What is bad on the left?

      I want to hear from your keyboard what you think is bad about being left, or even too far left.

      What is it that you fear, or loath on the left?

      I was happiest as a heathen.

      •  Because they can't win elections you maroon! (0+ / 0-)

        Well, leaving aside anything else, there is clearly a too far left unless your ideal is turning America into a socialist paradise a la North Korea.

        More importantly in the US context, too far left is anything that is further left than the US people are willing to vote for because a party that cannot win elections is !@$%@!$ useless!

        People like Stark are electoral poison anywhere outside a few little enclaves mostly on the left and right coasts.  The higher the profile they take, the more they look like the face of the Democratic party, the less our chances of winning any election from the presidency to the dog catcher of Podunk Missouri.

        And that's what I fear and loath on the left!

        •  I knew you couldn't articulate even one point (0+ / 0-)

          You republicans are all the same. You buy into cheap slogans.

          You think the government should stay out of health care but yet you have no problem with taxes being used to fund fire departments and police departments.

          Are you living the American dream? Do you own a major media outlet or drug company? Do you sell bullets or bombers to the government?

          Do you run a prison for the government?

          Were you enriched by Bush's tax cuts?

          If not, then maybe you are a working stiff like the other 95% of us and you should be demanding better service for your money.

          I have news for you pal, you are taking it up the ass like the rest of us.

          If you don't like socialism, then I hope your children don't attend public school because that would make you a hypocrite.

          I'll join the fucking Communist party if it means I never have to worry about health care for my family.

          If you think the policies of Bush have help you, then you are either fleecing the government (sucking off its tit, you could say) or you have deluded yourself.

          Tell your masters to use their own money to slaughter people for their oil, not mine. Iraq is a taxpayer-subsidized and blood-subsidized grant to the oil companies and I can promise you that we will never see a dime back from those fucking bloated pigs.

          We would have received a better deal had we just negotiated for Iraq's oil on the open market rather than let the US oil companies control it. We would have been a whole lot safer too.

          Is that the government you think is working for you? This government is fucked up.

          What Stark should have said was that he demands and immediate mental health exam on the president and vice-president because they are obviously sick fucking mental cases.

          Help yourself and get a brain.

          •  go ahead... (0+ / 0-)

            I'll join the fucking Communist party if it means I never have to worry about health care for my family.

            Well, based on prior experience, if you actually managed to help Communists take over you very possibly wouldn't have to worry about health care for your family.

            Historically, starting with Lenin's extermination of the Mensheviks, the democratic Left has been one of the first groups to be eliminated when Communists take over.

            Just out of curiosity, is your objective to win elections or to have politicians who say things that make you feel validated?

            •  That's the second time you talked about.. (0+ / 0-)

              us being taken over. Nobody is taking us over other than the Bush crime family.

              The terrorists would have landed the planes instead of smashing into buildings.

              They smashed into buildings because of conservative assholes who feel it nessesary to supply both sides of a war with weapons to help them kill each other off. That's called blowback, and we can expect a lot more of because of all the flag-waving idiots who voted for commander Shit-For-Brains.

              What is there to validate? I just want my constitution back.

              I was happiest as a heathen.
