Re: Clinton's Speech

Welfare was never mentioned at the Republican convention; the event was too high profile to feature a debunked, racially charged lie. But, now that the convention is over, Romney/Ryan are once again pushing the welfare lie.

Re: Where does it stop?

My first reaction was the same as Kulaf. WTF. After reading the decision it's not as outrageous as the article makes it sound. Gender identity disorder is recognized as a "major mental illness", it was found that Kosilek would suffer great harm (by suicide or self mutilation) if his mental illness w...

Re: Ryan's convention speech

Romney's campaign is built almost entirely on lies about Obama and obfuscation about his own policies because he thinks the American people are an idiots. It will be interesting to see if the news media can properly handle a campaign that has no link to reality.

Re: Aussies on US election

Ddrak, What is the news media like in Australia? Do they accurately report the news, or are they stenographers like the U.S. news media. Somewhere along the line the news media in this country lost the plot. Instead of fulfilling their function of providing the public accurate information, they simp...

Re: Who Should You Vote For? (Quiz)

70224780.jpg I'd also add that my results sided with 62% of California voters and 60% of American voters. In other words, very mainstream. Just a question for those who seem very polarized to one extreme of the other......did you expand to the other questions, and did you always say 'yes' or 'no' o...

Yeah, exactly like that.

Well... except that socialism isn't a plank in the Democratic platform, no state legislatures are trying to enact socialism, and no Democratic leader is pushing a socialist agenda.

Re: Time yet for a third party?

So I think the authors of this graph for whatever reason are trying to show some split in the Democratic party based on geographical location. Correct. The center line includes all Democrats. The other lines simply provide additional information and show that "northern Democrats" are slightly more ...

Re: My ultimate Ayn Rand porn

Romney continues to repeat the welfare lie and the medicare lie , making complete fabrications the centerpieces of his campaign. Here's an op-ed that expains why the only ideas coming out of the Romney campaign is the big lie. [Romney / Ryan] can read polls, and so they know very well that if they g...

It feels to me the "middle" is getting bigger...and the current two-parties are becoming more and more hive-minded out at the respective extremes. Well, if you don't pay attention to anything, that certainly could be a valid feeling. Yeah, that was odd. The Democratic Party has not become more extr...

Re: My ultimate Ayn Rand porn

Nope, I learned last week that the 2013 plan Ryan proposed was different than the 2012 plan that House Republicans passed. I don't blame Obama for accurately attacking the 2012 plan since that's what was voted on, but he should also talk about the new Romney / Ryan plan. None of which changes the fa...

You can create a new thread for Obama or ask Ddrak to rename the "Romney technically fails to qualify in WA state thread.

Ddrak, Can you change the title of the thread to 'Romney and Ryan Think You Are Stupid'?

Welfare One example is Romney's "Southern Strategy" w...

See the third paragraph of my previous post. It was nothing more than you moving the goal post.

Re: Romney + Ryan = Fail

The report to the court wasn't disputed by the other side.

But you're right Embar, it makes perfect sense to put as many obstacles in the way of people exercising their voting rights in order to solve a problem that doesn't exist. :roll:

Here's the Rates of Valid Photo Identification report submitted in the PA court case.

But who cares. Black, White, Hispanic, rich or poor... these voter ID laws are guaranteed to prevent a larger number of legal voters from voting than they are to prevent polling place fraud.

Re: Romney + Ryan = Fail

don't you see an issue with someone just walking up, claiming to be somebody, and then casting a vote? The correct question is, "don't you see an issue with preventing untold thousands of people from legally voting in order to stop a few dozen illegal votes?" We've been over this before. Polling pl...
