"This Is Why The American People Have Thrown You Out of Power!"
— Ace

In a way, yes. Refusing to even recognize opposing voices in debate? Yep, that was definitely part of it.

In case you're curious as I was, Laura Richardson was alas not personally thrown out of power. How sweet that would have been-- to be able to say, "And that's why you personally were fired."

She ran for reelection in California's 37th (Long Beach, Compton) and easily beat challenger Star Parker.

And if you like that, you'll like UK Independence Party (euro-skeptic) Nigel Farage take the euro-fanatics to task, asking them, "Just who in the hell do you think you are?"

3 There was no reason to treat a member of the House like that other than the fact that Dems suck eggs.

4 sigh, this is just a sign that the GOP lacks - how do you say? - gravitas... *thought bubble from the cognitively dissonant liberal press*

And the fact they treat us, their putative employers, like we're lower than pond scum.

That's enough to make you wanna rip the top off of a snack pack - you know what and you know why.

9 That fat dumb face up there...

That's the face of tyranny.

Ol' Jabba the Hutt up there likely never did an honest day's work in her life. And the fat, arrogant bitch presumes to tell you and I how to live. And steal what we rightfully earned with her fat, grubby paws and distribute it how she pleases.

Since liberals like to say gender identification is all in the mind, can we postulate that racial identification can also be found merely in the mind?  If so then I think I am an african-American who thought about being a farmer back in the 1980s when I was just starting elementary school.  Now give me my $57,000 Barry!

This is how riduculous and wrong Pigford II is.  You just have to have right skin colour and just merely 'intend' to be a farmer and instant moolah.  I think there is a case of violating the Equal Protection clause rattling around in here.

14 It's so funny that people think elections matter. Even after a huge turnover like November the GOP is back on the "let's get along" bandwagon, Cantor is caving on full repeal of Obamacare, Boehner wants to make kissy face with Barry, the Senate passed the "food safety" fascism bill, Michael Steele is still funneling hundreds of thousands of NRC dollars into his friend's pockets, and as someone pointed out in an earlier thread, it's a lock that the budget will not only not freeze next Congress but go higher. At our airports we have security theater, at DC we have Congressional kabuki. This isn't a republic any longer, it's a very expensive, very bad stage play and we're all locked in the theater.

18 Murkowski (and others) voted for the food police bill S.510.  Another good example of why we don't need any big government liberals in the republican party.

Sad but true...

I think its one of the reasons I like Sarah P. so much- she is decidedly NOT of the Aristocracy.  Its why I like Alan West, and Sean Bielat, and most of the other Tea Party candidates.

I'm sick and tired of the de facto Aristocracy that exists in the US.  We fought a war over that crap, and here it comes again.

That genius Terry Pratchet said it best with Sam Vimes from Discworld: "The problem with Humanity is a tendency to bend at the knees."

hmm, so the speaker treats the republican as they treat americas citizens, interesting.

the republicans were given strength by our votes if they want to stay in they better start slimming down gvt. and getting fiscally responsible, we didn't work our rears off for them to sit back shake hands and smile with the dems raping of our economy and future.

or do They believe we are so far down the rabbit hole it's to late and they are all going to get theirs?

23 SB 510 is also a gift to large corporate farms. Just like all the govt regulation that holds down small businesses and benefits the GMs of the country  this will give an even larger advantage to the larger farm operations.

They were already regulating small acreage plots. Last year when I rented out my 10 acres I had to have my mother sign the form. The regulation was only disadvantaged farms (Women or Minorities) could rent that small a plot out.

Drip Drip Drip went our freedom for so long now they are opening the flood gates

24 perhaps we should write a formal letter to our party, detailing what we expect of them with signatures and all?

Posted by: willow -sick of it at November 30, 2010 12:19 PM (h+qn8)

25 Michael Steele would call the official letter racist and use it to light a $100 cigar. Then play some golf. Then go on a few TV shows in a $5,000.00 pinstripe suit to agree with a few Democrats about some things.

26 That Nigel Farage video is stunning.  The 2012 conservative who can bring that kind of fire to bear in the primaries is gonna be the winner.

28 Didn't Pelosi lock the doors or shut off the electricity/lights to stop debate? I hope the Rs will be equally immature, even though the "press" will complain about the tactics. There needs to be some passion to win with these dolts, and I am not seeing it.
Cantor is a weenie, but I have hopes for Boehner, and not just like the ewok for Rubio.

29 amen mrp, we need them all day every day until america has regained its footing, this slow slide into financial destruction , stripping of freedoms from it's citizens. It's time for our representatives to be serious, not for coctails

30 Aw.  I heard this on the radio and thought he was adressing Pelosi.  It would have been much sweeter if it were so.

31 Richardson is one of the stupider members of Congress, and that is tough competition. She is a party hack that only got selected into that ridiculously gerrymandered district because she is functionally incapable of voting against the Democrat party line. And she has defaulted on multiple mortgages. Star Parker, on the other hand, is smart, hot, and honest. No wonder she lost.

Posted by: motionview at November 30, 2010 12:31 PM (zRbkQ)

32 And the GOP is the party of NO? Also, after viewing that video, we get back to the more important question of why the Republicans have these good looking women, Bachman, Palin, that new one from one of the Dakotas, even O'Donnell. And the democrats have these women who just look like they think that keeping up their looks is somehow a sellout. I mean, geez, what is with the ugly suits? There really are nice looking suits out there for women. And looking at the nastiness on that woman's face as she refuses to recognize the republican congressman. If she's married, can you imagine her poor husband's life? How would you like to have to face that after work every day? I think we should take up a collection for him to cover what must be a huge booze bill. The guy has to be numbing himself with Scotch.

Big giant thumbs up for the Sam Vimes/Dicworld reference.

My favorite line: Pulling together is the aim of tyrants and despots.  Free men pull in all kinds of directions.

@19: "In my youthful naivete (I'm 55) I'd always assumed we had discarded the idea of a permanent aristocracy . Guess not ."

We, the plebians, did.  The aristocrats never did; they just played along and retook what was "rightfully theirs" bit by bit.


"OK, we're still at the ballot box stage , for now .
For now....."

That's the only stage we'll ever be at (caveat: the Left may opt to start shooting, but the Right never will; they'll queue up for death camps first).  Remember, two more election cycles, and everything will be ok.
