  1. Really? Name one in this century. One. Name...

    Really? Name one in this century. One. Name one since 1965. One. This Republican fantasy is pernicious and dead wrong on the facts. The civil rights proponents in the GOP fled from it as it...
  2. Poll: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Republican priorities: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

    You were saying? Did you...

    1. Joe McCarthy's right-hand man in the scandalous red-baiting, blacklisting House Unamerican Activities Committee of the 50's.

    Sticky: You said this: That is a factual assertion. ...

    You said this:

    That is a factual assertion. Isn't it? Do you or do you not have any evidence at all that it is true? I am not asking you for evidence about some other broader point. I am not...
  5. They elected that yahoo, and he wasn't exactly...

    They elected that yahoo, and he wasn't exactly hiding his views. If you feel like starting a thread in the Politics section, I am down to talk further on this subject.

    Any thoughts on the...
  6. It's just an example of the fact that his side...

    It's just an example of the fact that his side has no good arguments on this issue. They never did. Thus resort to a poor, demonstrably failed one. He's never going to admit it's a poor argument,...
  7. Rather than rehash failed arguments against SSM,...

    Rather than rehash failed arguments against SSM, let's look at what happens next.



    And where could we possibly have heard of a regressive jerk sworn to obey and enforce the law doing exactly...
  8. Therefore infertile couples should be prohibited...

    Therefore infertile couples should be prohibited from marrying? Old folks past fertility, too? Or is this just a random comment irrelevant to the thread?

    Thanks. Polemics are my specialty, and rational thought based on facts could use some street preachers.

    If you can point out where I said it did, please...

    If you can point out where I said it did, please do. My point was that the epistemology (theory of knowledge) underlying religion on one hand, and science on the other, had differing degrees of...
  11. Poll: People who molest children are pedophiles. ...

    People who molest children are pedophiles. Lumping together homosexuals with pedophiles makes exactly as much sense as lumping heterosexuals in with pedophiles. The majority of pedophiles are...
  12. Tens of millions of Americans who have health...

    Tens of millions of Americans who have health insurance they never would've had under a Republican regime are happier. So are tens of millions who now have the same right to get married as the rest...
  13. Is that not the message of flying the traitor...

    Is that not the message of flying the traitor flag? If not, then hundreds of millions of us out here have been misinterpreting the message open racists were sending when they revived its use in the...

    The only guy I ever knew who became an NCAA...

    The only guy I ever knew who became an NCAA Division I player was almost certainly on steroids in high school. That didn't get him past the 98%+ cut rate that happens to make the NFL, however.

    If someone told you that they disagree with heterosexuality, what would you think? Would you think it's even a coherent point to try to make?

    In a case of putting your money where your mouth is, Sanders refuses to create a SuperPAC. He says he believes strongly in serious campaign finance reform. Unlike every single other major...

    Let's have a short history lesson. I call it the ballad of Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd. Both of these gentlemen were long-serving US Senators hailing from southern states. Both were originally...
  18. So who is responsible for our government's...

    So who is responsible for our government's actions if it isn't you and me, and it isn't the rest of the citizens of the nation? I'd love you to point him out.
  19. Poll: Median household income is the same as it was in...

    Median household income is the same as it was in 1973. Productivity is several times higher. The benefits of that productivity increase have driven our current inequality. As for inflation, it's a...

    Indeed it is. It's a symptom of a broader issue. Fascism, the combination of corporate and state power, is the de facto stance of the neo-liberal consensus. Before cheerleaders for conservatives...

    Gore is past his "sell by" date. Few RBs remain effective past 30. Brady, Manning, and Brees have all seen their best days, but it's a matter of the rate of decline. As for Boldin, he never relied...
  22. When a ruling based on the 14th Amendment is...

    When a ruling based on the 14th Amendment is applied to gun rights, we'll be in totally incoherent legal territory. So, hope all you like, but that isn't going to happen.
  23. Poll: What individuals? People who work for a living? ...

    What individuals? People who work for a living? Because I am not seeing it. We have more free trade now than we have in centuries, and how are working Americans doing as a result? Flatlining...
  24. Poll: They never have before, but those who are buying...

    They never have before, but those who are buying the "everyone gets a pony" theory think they will this time. This is about consolidating power in the hands of the already powerful, and attacking...
  25. Almost as devastating as Loving v. Virginia, the...

    Almost as devastating as Loving v. Virginia, the law that over-ruled states' prohibitions on interracial marriage. Almost. "State's rights", btw, has long been code for "our state is full of bigots...
