centerish, all of us are depending upon YOU for equal time. If you'd post something besides your predictable slams, perhaps I, and all those others like me, would read what you say more carefully.

My advice (I know, it wasn't asked for): Kwitcherbeefin' and belly up to the blog.

It is very obvious that the only true bloggers on here are you, rushslide, animal, whistler, and any other right wing blogger. I won't call you conservative because you don't have a philosophy that even comes close to the conservative philosophy. You all watch and listen to the far right wing media, blame the left for everything, discredit anything the left does, and your group does nothing good for the country. That is probably why none of you can list--1,2,3,4 the things the party has done for America the past ten years. Well, lets see: a war, an economic collapse, unfunded tax cuts, etc, etc. I gave you a start, so hurry up.

billgrr and centerish have proven themselves to be ultra-partisans, in favor of any and all things the current president does.

Their viewpoints are not rooted in reality, but heavily rooted in leftist policies, full steam ahead, no holds barred.

People are suffering under Obamacare mandates? Nonsense! People are mad about being lied to? Stuff and nonsense!

Avid administration apologists they are, and avid administration apologists they will remain. There seems to be no policy of the present administration that they will not defend to the hilt.

Oh, well, the other side of the aisle still exists, regardless of their notions.

You know so much about obamacare, don't ya. Your sources are faux News , Rush, shawn, and the boys. You know absolutely nothing about the health care laws and you show your lack of knowledge very quickly.

Obama Care is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated against the American people. This program was sold to you as a health program, defended in the S Court as a Tax program, and then you were lied to every day trying to sell this thing. You cant keep your Doctor, you can not keep your insurance, you can not get out of paying the 21 additional taxes in the plan. If your rep read the Bill they would not have passed the Bill, not one Republican voted for this Bill. This is noting more than the Federalization of the health care industry, and a huge Social power grab. Do you want the Federal Government tell you what care you get and what Doctor you can see? WAKE UP America, You need to vote and toss the bums out!

1,2,3: 1,2,3: 1,2,3,4,5 Well, loco, at least you have the numbers down. It is really too bad that you cannot find justification to fill in material after the numbers. But, that does not stop you from demanding answers from others. You really cannot find three things the Republican party has done in the past five years??? Or, you cannot find three things to justify the XL pipeline that will hold water/oil??? So, what does the dailykos or faux News say??? Are we talking about money spend specifically on false advertising(30,000 commercials/almost a billion dollars spent??) Hmmm.. tells us what you found. Do we include the cost of the 54 votes to repeal/change obamacare from the "conservative" House?????????? Oh, that is pushing 100 million in cost just wasted by those so-called conservative House members.

"Obamacare exceeding its goals for signup and public opinion starting to turn in spite of 30000 commercials and almost a billion dollars spent against the plan..."

And just how much has our country's government spent on advertising to encourage signing up? Got a figure yet, centerish? 1,2,3...

The tums will be there if or when it's needed, by Democrats and/or Republicans alike. Right now, I just "feel" there's desperation about ACA, not the desired acceptation.

Do I have a source or report or study or poll? 1,2,3...Well, I COULD try to dig up a few, but there are so many other things to accomplish today besides that.

Have an excellent Wednesday

"One would assume that if you were totally against contraception like Hobby Lobby is you wouldn't have 401(k) employee retirement plans holding $73 million in mutual funds that invest in multiple pharmaceutical companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and abortion-inducing medications."

For once, my real husband and I would agree with billgrr on this particular point. Christians should have absolute clarity on this issue, or enemies of the faith like billgrr (no offense and I mean that) will point out any grain of double-mindedness or hypocrisy.

Reminds me of an excerpt from an old book:

Luke 22:31-32 "And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren."

I wonder if Jason Easley believes that the adverse stories of people losing insurance they liked are "lies" like Sen. Harry Reid said, then denied he said it.

I wonder what the word "implementation" means to folks at politicususa. Does it mean whatever and whenever the president chooses, for obviously political purposes? That kind of implementation?

Go ahead, stick it to Republicans. Tell voters that what they've experienced is all made up. The ACA was a law passed by Democrats only and they should own it, to the fullest extent.

Politicususa is an ULTRA blue source with ULTRA blue writers. Thanks for providing it, PJinfinity. Yeah, it sure isn't Faux Snooze, is it?

From another article, written by Jason Easley, site founder (4-1-14):

"Obama Rips Republicans, ‘There are still no death panels. Armageddon has not arrived.’"

"Instead of running on the weak and whiny position of “fixing Obamacare,” Democrats should follow the president’s lead and explain to voters what repealing the law would mean. Repealing the law means that tens of millions of people would lose their health insurance. The ACA is working. It is helping people. The demand for Obamacare has now been proven...

"Republicans have never been able to answer the question that the president asked, “Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance?” The president is holding Republican feet to the fire, and his not going to stop pressing until the ACA haters have been thoroughly defeated."

hobby lobby is a person.... no, it is a corporation. Does it have religious beliefs? Well, only if you believe as Mitt does, that corporations are people too. What next?

A Harvard Medical School team of researchers recently published a report, “Opting Out Of Medicaid Expansion: The Health And Financial Impacts,” that calculated the body count in REPUBLICAN STATES rejecting free Medicaid expansion for millions of Americans because they hate the Affordable Care Act more than they care about their residents.

According to the Harvard report, Rick Perry will be responsible for up to 3,000 Texans’ deaths every year, Florida governor Rick Scott will have 2,221 Floridians’ deaths on his watch, Nathan Deal will help kill 1,176 Georgians each year, and North Carolina governor Pat McCrory will be responsible for 1,145 North Carolinians’ deaths every year.

All told, 24 Republican states will kill off up to 17,000 poor Americans every year and the travesty is that the deaths are preventable and the cost of saving their lives to Republican states is nothing.

I guess billgrr assumes that an "accomplishment" by any Democrat always results in something good.

So when somebody might tell a Democrat that a certain landmark Democrat-only accomplishment is not so good, one well-worn tactic is to say that the naysayer is LYING ala Sen. Harry Reid.

Or to use HAetc's familiar format:

Democrat accomplishment ALWAYS good

Republican accomplishment ALWAYS bad hyperpartisan Democrats.

Fail schmail

You can always tell when someone is near mental illness when they start using Hitler as their measuring stick. It shows how incredibly non-intelligent that person is and how much hatred he has for humanity. As a paid out of state blogger who is sanctioned by the MDN and Wheeling, WV to be a hate monger on the blog. That is the only reason he has not been booted months ago. I also see fewer and fewer agrees to his blogs so his support among conservative is non-existant as it should be. A sick, perverted individual who is a paid political hack from out of state.

The very best accomplishment that you can put forth, loco, is the small circle of obstructionism? That obstructionism is huge and unprecedented in US history. Complete blocks of no votes on everything from jobs bills, to immigration, to any bill put forth. Then, fifty plus votes on one issue which shows a complete waste of the House's time and money. Something the Republicans are very, very good at. Oh, by the way, loco.. very simple: 1,2,3, etc....

"Landslime says he is a businessman and an entrepreneur, but he can't even do simple math.

I have yet to meet a successful business person who can't do math. Maybe Landslime is just glomming off the gubbment like a lot of these other right wing hypocrites."

Landslide2014 is a fictional poster brought to you by the same good folks who support dumbing down America!

Pigs, horses,slop, as in out of city limits with routed IP's in chartered districts who get paid for.....slop!

Interesting to see the RISE of DEMOCRATIC involvement in local papers as the bottle fed Republic in ND is FAT & Unhappy!

Maybe I should use billgrr's way of thinking and say that Pres. Obama stole the past two elections.

But I don't think that way. I acknowledge the Obama presidency. I firmly disagree with many of its policies and (try to) discuss issues with his avid supporters. That is civics in action.

And we could all agree that name-calling and pejoratives are unnecessary, but I don't think anyone's practices will be affected in the least.

Politics has always been, and most likely will continue to be, a dirty, nasty business. A little like football, but political decisions last far after the "season" ends.

Maybe that's why libs keep blaming former Pres. Bush for everything that they thought was wrong from his presidency.

Q: Will Pres. Obama be blamed for his "season's" political decisions? If elections are the proving ground, we won't know that until results come in.

Keep on politicking, peoples!

How about hiring a private firm to hire the school superintendent and all of the school staff? Have a quasi-private school system with the taxpayers funding the private firm to disperse school system funding? "

So I was looking around for a "list of Republican accomplishments" and I found a few interesting ones. Now any that I might post would be roundly dismissed by libs here, so I won't waste anyone's time and move on to my point.

One thing that Republicans have accomplished is what centerish has been referring to all along. She calls it "Republican obstructism" but I call it drawing a line against Unfettered Democrat Fond Wishes And Dreams Of Social Utopia Run Amok, or UDFWADOSURA for short.

You say po-tay-toe, I say po-tah-toe.

AS IF Dems haven't dug in their heels when Republicans have had a majority. C'mon..1,2, the sources that say minority Democrats went along with ALL Republican majority proposals in unison across the aisle.

Hey, it's not even happening now in the Republican-controlled House. Those House Democrats are "obstructing" the Republicans, aren't they? How dare they stop progress like that?

It is all a matter of perspective.

Tick, tock, tick, tock. Time is passing and no Republican list of accomplishments...1,2,3 Come on loco, I have reduced it to only three. Make an attempt. We could use a good laugh.
