Here's one source for willgrr's #8 that I found interesting.

Look it up.

The Republican party is certainly in touch with the priorities of North Dakota's baggers:

Guns, God, Gasoline and Beer.

willgrr's #2 "Women are equal citizens who deserve equal rights."

Let's see now...willgrr has before waxed eloquent in his praise of a "President Hillary Clinton" that he would happily see in the White House in 2016.

Isn't it too bad that Mrs. Clinton's husband has seen fit to disrespect her and their marriage vows by his several affairs, many which have been made public?

So that's what "equal rights" for women entails? The right to remain silent when a husband has peccadillos aplenty? The right to "stand by your man" in order to reap political rewards for oneself? The right to support male disrespect of women--misogyny--by "allowing" a husband's renegade behavior?

Sorry, but for this voting woman, that's not equal rights. That's something entirely different.

So much for the "appearances" Veritas. All it took was a little time...

Where do you get your information, BDGI? Off of looney tunes! Even the biggest loser of them all, Issa, has backed off on Benghazi. How can you tell lies like Obama watched it live? That has been proven false since the right wing lie machine brought it up. You still standing behind the door on information? We went into Iraq on lies because of oil contracts for Bush's buddies. Bush ignored warnings he got on terrorist attacks using airlines. You have to be below average on the intelligence scale.

Regurgitated posts with clever edits do not an opinion make.

Go on and tell us what you REALLY think. Veritas unbound!

Veritas: "Your bias's for bloggers & your introspect imposed on others is truly distasteful..."

This quote is good for most of this forum's participants. Duh...

Republicans are an antiquated group that hate progress, but yet spend their entire day typing away on their computer that was probably invented by a democrat, complaining about pretty much everything. If democrats are out of touch then I guess we will get to see another Bush become president in the future since they seem to be the only Republicans who can get elected....lol

I'd have to cite a recent example of a Democrat being in touch, or rather, a Democrat touching another being...

"His legacy will be that he confirmed, rather than challenged, the errors made by his predecessor."

This sentence is interesting. If what former Pres. Bush did was so awful, so wrong when he was in office 5 years ago, why would Pres. Obama be doing anything similar?

How about the executive orders? Are all those enacted by either president super popular? Or should this just descend into a partisan thingy, like "my president's EOs are better than your president's EOs - nyah, nyah!"

Wait for it...

I think it's not just in the numbers, it's in the content, as any who are trying to uphold EOs might say.

Some are benign, some are...well, not so benign.

Some reach a little, some reach very, very far.

I do thank you for the source, willgrr. Have a great evening.

The source?

thedemocraticstrategist . org/strategist/2013/08/why_seniors_are_turning_agains

"A Message from Managing Editor Ed Kilgore"

"The Democratic Strategist has three editorial goals--(1) to provide an explicitly and unapologetically partisan platform for the discussion of Democratic political strategy, (2) to insist upon greater use of data and greater reliance on empirical evidence in strategic thinking and (3) to act as a neutral forum and center of discussion for all sectors of the Democratic community."

"As The Democratic Strategists' editorial philosophy states, the publication will be "proudly partisan, firmly and insistently based on facts and data and emphatically open to all sectors and currents of opinion within the Democratic community"."

"Sincerely Yours, Ed Kilgore, Managing Editor"

"Neutral forum and center for discussion" my little toe.

Veritas, don't you think namexxx's posts are just filled with friendly facts?

Maybe he's just the mouthpiece of perceived liberal truth?

Will you own him as your friend too?

Michelle Malkin 8-9-2013

"With the grope-and-headlock count rising like Bob's libido at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser, it strains credulity to believe that the Democratic female elite in Washington didn't purposely look the other way at this insatiable entrenched beast's abuse of power. Power doesn't just corrupt the old boys' club in three-piece suits. It corrupts the old girls' club in pumps and progressive clothing, too."

Where is the outrage, libs?

"I'll defend any buffoon's right to say what he/she wants. As this is an MDN forum, their editor has the ultimate authority to decide whose rants stay or go."

I stand by the statement. Opine away.

willgrr, Veritas, et al will be at the ready with their opinions, gauging the propriety or impropriety of each message, especially when delivered by a conservative--no extra charge for that service. (Similar to the modern-day IRS's Lois Lerner, huh?)

And if I have an opinion, I'll state it too. If I get bumped, oh well. If Danno books me, oh well.

Such are the risks of online opine...

Well, at least you provided enough info to start some research. Does that qualify as facts, willgrr and Veritas?
