The right-wing of the GOP has started to sound and feel more and more like a cult, which made me realize, I'm not sure what a cult is. So, I looked it up. There are a lot of things on this page that make me question both parties.

If you have a few minutes, it's an interesting read. Cult Characteristics

This is rich coming from a guy who thinks the Democratic Party **** doesn't stink and blames Republicans for everything.

Is it coincidence that you guys happen upon same novel idea, or do you just drink from the same Daily Kos Kool Aid pitcher?

I've kind of had similar thoughts as I see them departing further from reality. But I wondered, do they really share the characteristics of a cult? Are they that bad?

So I checked an online source. Actually, this source offered several views of what constitutes cult-like behavior. I had to pick one, and I chose this one mainly because it's concise.

What a coinkydink. Or maybe it's a coinky-link.

I blame the GOPers for about 70% of the mess. Makes it very difficult for me to vote for one.

I specifically said in my post that I was questioning both parties. Beyond that, I think for myself. If I disagree with the Democrats, I will say so. The problems I generally have with the Democrats tend to be they aren't going far enough, or aren't doing enough to overcome the petulant resistance of the Republicans who have given up on reasonable governance.

I am far more fiscally conservative than any of the Republicans because they aren't fiscally conservative. I am far more socially liberal than the Democrats because they are luke warm at best. I don't expect the parties to do everything they want, but I do expect them ALL to go to Washington and do a job, which includes working together, negotiating, and compromising to deal with problems we face. Both sides need to work on that.

Oh, by the way, I don't think the Dems **** doesn't stink, I just think the Republicans is unbearable, while I can breathe through my mouth and tolerate the Dems' stench.

Mine was the top google search, and it seemed to do a good job of aggregating multiple views on the subject. I don't read Daily Kos, and I had no idea Veil had posted that. It is bizarre that he used the same link. Anyway, coinky-link. Who'da thunk it.

Mitt Romney A Bad Choice For America from the Sinister Blog.

Quote:
The current public image if Mitt Romney is of a small town man, who knows what it’s like to grow up in middle America. He continually says he understand the plight of the working man, he knows how tough it is out there to make ends meet! His ads show him walking trough small American Factories while he bashes unions. Eating apple pie and sipping a coke in quant small town café, small grassroots campaigning. Romney even announced his presidency on a small farm! His current public image makes him out to be a simple Joe Shmo, all American man. Sounds like a great candidate for the next American president, only, his public persona is a lie! He is not your average American! With this blog post I intend to point that out to you, I also intend to prove that he isn’t a friend of small business, he is not a friend of middle America, he has never, and will never be middle class, or poor, and above all he doesn’t care about the debt crisis, he doesn’t care about unemployment, education, or creating a sustainable future for America.

With all the typos in the part you quoted, I don't think there's anything to see there.

Oops, Lee beat me to it.

And are we required to constantly be patting ourselves on the back especially in light of all the (some self imposed) problems we face?





There are those who have an issue with this statement?? Have you ever heard of being diplomatic?
I'm not sure where/when the concept of American exceptionalism became so big...or at least advocating in a public context. Historically, Republican Presidents have advocated the latter, such as Teddy Roosevelt, which began the 'Big Stick' ideology, which was applied to foreign affairs in general. In that sense, Obama's response was an excellent one and Teddy probably would have given him the thumbs up. It seems the ethnocentric 'big mouth' rarely results in anything positive and frequently results in things that are negative...

Now there is nothing wrong with pride. The US has had some amazing leaders who have gone against the moral majority in the name of pursuing what is 'right'. However, that is not to take away from any other country, as I am sure they have had amazing leaders too.

Can we say the US has been exceptional during the past 10 years? I don't know. It seems that previous periods can only be reflected on literally years after they occur. I mean, history could look back at the Patriot Act and the War on Terror as something that led the rest of the world to put their foot down against tyranny or oppression, or an attack against free rights, a spur for institutional discrimination, and a compromise to human rights, or something in between.

Jon Stewart on Republican Hypocrisy
regarding Obama's Afghanistan trip. "Boohoo, he's politicizing the war".

That said I'm not happy that Obama who ran on a platform of getting us out of war has signed an agreement with Afghanistan that goes through 2024! For some relative party perspective, keep in mind that the GOP considers Obama "soft" on war in general.

Edit: OK, who gave me the -1?? Was it for my GOP or my Obama critique?

Well he did win The Nobel Peace Prize.

Since then he killed Osama, and signed a long agreement with Afghanistan. I'd say he's in line for a second Nobel Peace prize.

Actually, he ran on ending the war in Iraq and campaigned on increasing troops in Afghanistan.

Yea but a (total) 24 year commitment to a country that will most likely change back to what it was the moment we leave? I never imagined that. Simply said, the bad guys can out wait us, decades if necessary, until we are broke. In the end you have to ask, just what did we buy with all of our dead sons and daughters and our infrastructure falling around our heads? Did we get security? This is the way Bin Laden wanted to win, by causing us to spend TRILLIONS digging out rats who live on a shoe string budget.

Top Romney Doner Argues We Need MORE Income Inequality:

Quote:
And while investors like Conard made luxuries available to some Americans, they also bankrupted companies and left workers without jobs, pensions, or health care. Bain Capital, in fact, made billions of dollars for people like Romney and Conard while bankrupting nearly a quarter of the companies in which it invested.
I can't understand why the Haves would argue this?

Hey, I simply stated a fact. I don't like the agreement any more than you do.

The Republican Agenda.

Quote:
If you were to stroll by the House chamber today — or tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that — you would arrive at the ideal time to see what the lawmakers do best: absolutely nothing.

It’s another recess week for our lazy leaders. Oh, sorry: “Constituent Work Week” is what they’re calling it these days, as if lawmakers were filling potholes and making calls to Social Security rather than raising campaign cash.

By the time the Republican-led House returns next week, members will have been working in Washington on just 41 of the first 127 days of 2012 — and that was the busy part of the year. They are planning to be on vacation — er, doing “constituent work” — 17 of the year’s remaining 34 weeks, and even when they are in town the typical workweek is three days.

Good work if you can get it — but the behavior is doing quite a job on the rest of us. On those infrequent occasions the House is in session, the Senate, also enamored of recess, often isn’t, which helps explain why the two chambers can’t agree on much of anything.

To call this 112th Congress a do-nothing Congress would be an insult — to the real Do-Nothing Congress of 1947-48. That Congress passed 908 laws. To date, this one has passed 106 public laws. Even if they triple that output in the rest of 2012 — not a terribly likely proposition — they will still be in last place going back at least 40 years.

Doing nothing would arguably be preferable to what the House is actually doing. Lawmakers have staged 195 roll-call votes so far this year, which sounds like a lot until you realize that boils down to only about 60 pieces of legislation, including post-office namings. Among the 60:

●The Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Act.

●The Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012.

●Legislation requiring the Treasury to mint coins commemorating the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service.

●The World War II Memorial Prayer Act.

●The Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act.

I was listening to Morning Joe on MSNBC a couple of days ago and one of the (frequent) guests was Zbigniew Brzezinski, Mika's father. Regarding Europe one comment in particular caught my attention. Paraphrased: It was that when governments start talking of "austerity", that an austerity plan must include austerity across the spectrum of society. If austerity is perceived as being focused only on the common people, while shielding the "haves", it will lead to social dissent because the perception in a democracy is the standard should be one of fairness and equal sacrifice across the board. However instead of "equal", I'd push the idea that "relative" would be a better term to use.

Let's leave Europe for a moment and look at the U.S. If it comes down to austerity, which political party in the U.S. has a better shot of implementing a fair "sharing the pain" program? I can guarantee you that it is not the GOP who are of, and worship the value of the haves.

What the heck is wrong with Fox News?

Here you go:
http://youtu.be/NeFhA_sL38c

Rev Jesse Peterson had a column on World Net Daily. He is a regular on Sean Hannity's Fox News talk show. He's frequently referred to as a "Fox News analyst" but that may be an incorrect title though he has appeared on Fox News numerous times. He has a radio show http://www.bondaction.org/content/radioshowhome

*Women can't make good decisions.
*Women can't wield power.
*Women should not have been given the right to vote.
*God gave the power to men, not women.

Hey did you know that Fox News supports The Etch-a- Sketch too?
