— 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?"
And you're stupid!

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.

Thanks, now I don't even have to pretend to fake some actual interest in watching.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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 .
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.

And as a reminder: On whose side was the Bush Administration on? And now the Obama Administration?
The EU centralizers.
