    they might have been going without health insurance, but they were not going without health care, were they?

    cooperation my ar se.

    Revisionist history.  Maybe if Pelosi and Reid were not high on power they would have brought in to the debate.

    Instead they said things like "you can't stop us".

    And if you recall, the vast majority were against the mess of a bill.

    And finally, remember, we needed to pass it to see what was in it.

    Surely you don't think this current HCR bill is going to stop all people from going bankrupt due to medical conditions or not getting proper care do you?

    Not I.  I think the current HCR bill will increase death, but probably do nothing to impact the bankruptcy due to health bills.  This will cause the government to do something goofy like say you are not responsible for your own health bills, which will cause people to increase their lackadaisical attitude towards being personally responsible.

    The road to serfdom is upon us.

    Pelosi and Reid remind me of those confederates...attacking and threatening to destroy democracy in order to get their way.

    the best thing that will happen for america in regard to the tea party is that 90% of them will be dead within 20 years being that 99% of the tea party is old, white americans who still live the dream of being back in the 1950's

    where white america ruled the world, and no one else mattered, ah, those were the days eh GOP?

    when did they "threaten to destroy democracy"...?


    hyperbolize much...or are you one of those who still thinks the feeble HCR bill was radical socialism/marxism/communism/etc....?

    I'm liberal, and I hated it.  But I don't confuse hating the law with denying that it's the best they could do under the circumstances.  But I'm funny that way....

    Well thats the exact language the author of the article you posted used to describe the tea party...that they are attacking and threatening to destroy our democracy. Interesting that your reply would be "hyperbolize much" when its Reid/Pelosi in regards to HCR, but it's "lets examine the merits" when its the Tea Party and the debt ceiling.

    Never denied access to health care, however.

    The only hospitals I know of that dumped pateints were the ones run by Obama's trusted advisor Valerie Jarret.

    In Response to Re: Tea Party as 'Neo-Confederates'...? : You claim to be an open minded curious intellectual; the vague idea of the Tea Party being connected to the Confederacy is somehow 'intriguing" and worth looking at, because it reinforces your bias.  But the thought that slavery as a form of socialism, and intellectuals defending slavery as a form of 'communism' , is 'weird'; contrary to your rigid progressive view of history, so you immediately close your open mind.  You never heard of Fitzhugh, did you?
    Posted by BobinVa


    Actually, I had heard of the socialist theory of slavery before your little posting.  And you are certainly not a person to challenge someone for excessive ideological rigidity.  I thought the theory was neo-confederate theory was interesting, but not entirely convincing.  You thought Fitshugh and his weird premise (slavery predates socialism as a concept) was a solid theory.  Why?  Because it fits your bias against all things liberal.  You are not an unintelligent person.  It is a shame you are so limited by your zealotry and hatred of all things potentially "left".

    In Response to Re: Tea Party as 'Neo-Confederates'...? : So, I get TEA party members called terrorists, confederates, and the like, and as A WAY TO MAKE A POINT, call Matty a Goebbels wanna be, and that-is-outrageous! I think, again, we have cracked the code:  Liberals are free to spew what ever venom they like, in their cute little "I'm so witty" way, but, when it is played against them, WATCH OUT!!!!! The point to Matty was that Goebbels famously said that if you repeat a lie often enough, it iwll be accepted as fact.  that is the process Matty is using, and Goebbels invented that basic propaganda technique. Like I said in the first post:  you got your big government spending, the economy is collapsing even faster because of it, so stop your whining.  You won.  Accept it and move on.

    So what you are saying is you are as bad as the worst liberal (something you truly hate). Think about that and be a better person or continue on and realize you must hate yourself too.

    Reuben acts as if he uses his brain to fairly determine issues.  He plays the game but the truth is if you keep an eye on him, he is one of the most partisaned buffoons on here. He also claims he is a lawyer when it helps his cause, but then admits he is in fact a teacher. He is a partisned buffoon who simply tries to hide it behind a bunch of bs.  This is a great example.  To try and defend this post is absurd.

    WHen are buffoons going to realize that lumping all tea party members together as old white racists, is no different than me saying dems are poor lazy minorities that want to live off of the hard work of repubs.

    Generalizations are wrong.  Let alone the ones you mention about the tea party are completely wrong.

    The tea party is amde up of whites blacks (remember the racist with the gun strapped to his belt that MSNBC ran over and over again, ya he was black), dems and repubs.

    And they are far from old. 

    If you don't like generalizations made about dems and progressives, then don't do it to the other side.

    They are bogus.

    Now that is an odd twist.  Isn't that precisely what the Tea Party was doing?  They wouldn't work with Democrats OR Republicans.  Not much democracy there...

    That really goes without saying.  Is anyone really suggesting such a premise?  Well, besides the conservative fringe that supposedly "knows" the left and their evil designs to subvert all that is good and holy.

    Oh, man! Reuben's been reading that secret website where I post all my 50 page rants.  Now, I'm found out.  Who will pick up the mantle to fight against those who are subverting all that is good and holy?

    You got that right.  So far, I know that Reuben teaches that capitalism is evil, and, despite all the similarities and history, Hitler was a conservative, despite all his socialist tendencies.

    I was taught by the Reubens of the world, all the way through grad school.  Then I got a real-world job, and began to see the real-world way. 

    Maybe Reuben is single handedly responsible for the vast sea of stupidity that we call Obama voters.

    In Response to Re: Tea Party as 'Neo-Confederates'...? : 1) Unimportant, but OK. 2) They are predominantly conservative republicans. 3) Incidental, but OK. 4) They are predominantly white and predominantly southern, especially as represented in congress - an important distinction. 5) This just makes no sense - it's an absolutist view that's unrealistic to the extreme. 6) Kelly Ayotte, Scott Brown (too "squishy"?), Gregg, Rudman as well as ME Gov. LePage, Romney, Healey ... but why does this matter to the questions at hand??
    Posted by MattyScornD

    1. Unimportant to you but a factual error by the author so to my point.
    2. No, they are predominantly INDEPENDENTS who have tired of BOTH parties.
    3. Incidental? The authors whole article is based on his fact of the starting, like the Civil War, in the south!
    4. The country is predominantly white so law of averages. They are NOT predominantly southern and the southern congressional tie is more with Republicans being seen as conservative. Many in the northern states ran and were defeated.
    5. May make no sense to you but we are talking facts not emotion I thought? The FACT is most TP people hate both parties and believe we need to get rid of the whole lot and start over. Because you and the author don't LIKE that doesn't mean it isn't relevant.
    6. Really? ROTFLMAO! Brown a conservative? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Do you know what a Conservative is? Brown and the rest are RINO's. Moderate Republicans who go along to get along and hopefully get re-elected. It is pertenant because the author threw out the fact there were zero TP reps from the NE. The fact they are about 5% of the NE population would explain the low number of reps here.

    I can only wonder what kind of husband and father and friend you are.  Let's get personal!  Troll.

    I think you are just plain jealous.  I have education and have had success in two professional careers.  But I am sure you make your own contribution to society.  Gardening?  Making model airplanes?  Don't be so hard on yourself.  And don't lash out against others needlessly.

    Capitalism is not evil.  Hitler was a right winger, a fascist and not a socialist (just stupid to think otherwise).  I have had a real world job in the private sector and a job teaching (also a real job). So you don't know what you are talking about. Rant on. Mindlessly.
