    You’ll enoy this one

  2. You’re right. That’s a riot!!!

    LOL… repeatedly…

    … still chuckling…

    Thanks for sharing that.

  3. On a much more serious note, here’s something to ponder…

    How would you categorize or classify a person who said this today:

    The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

    If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

    Is that a “Right-wing-nut”?

    Is that a “Tea Party Protester”?

    In today’s world, I think the MSM and the left side of the blogosphere would use such terms to describe the person speaking those words.

    But that’s actually a quote from the same Democratic President of the United States that is called a “hero” by Tim Kaine, the person who wrote the blog post on Democrats.org about the new Democrat logo.

    And who was that Democratic President who spoke those words quoted above?

    Harry Truman.

  4. Looks like I’m not the only one who thought of “D for Diapers… Change that matters”….

  5. Math says:

    Wow. Toilet humor? Is that what you guys have sunk to?

  6. Wow. You have the nerve to say that, after the depths to which the Democratic Socialists have sunk?

  7. Math,

    If you love the new logo so much, go get your free bumper sticker and display it with pride!

  8. And note what the guys from Hillbuzz said on that Get a Free Democrats Bumper Sticker post at Democrats.org…

    It is going to take a generation for Democrats to rebound from the damage Obama and the Left have done to the party. I’m a former lifelong Democrat who has left the party because of not only what the DNC did to Hillary Clinton, but what Democrats have done to this country by letting the Left run wild in our government for two years. Democrats…if you could lose lifelong, gay, politically active guys like me and send me over to support conservatives and vote Republican for the first time in my life then you have deep problems that a new logo just won’t solve. Especially not a bush-league, uninspired, generic one like this.

    The Democratic Socialists’ insistance on forcing Obamacare down our throats, despite our screaming “STOP!“, will mean severe losses for Democrats in each of the next three election cycles. They will end up with impotent minorities in both houses of Congress once each incumbent has had to defend their votes in favor of a massive bill that they didn’t write, didn’t read, and didn’t debate on C-SPAN as Obama promised no less than 8 times.

    They thought they could implement any and all of their Marxist dreams, regardless of what the voters wanted. Democrats greatly miscalculated, and this election is the first of three where they will pay dearly for their hubris and Marxism.

    I’ve met more people than I can count, both in person and online, who had voted Democrat their entire life, but are now going to vote Republican.

    And a stupid new Democratic logo, (which in my opinion looks like the Obama “O” consuming the Democratic Party “D” and removing any reference to the red stripes of the U.S. flag … remiscent of Obama saying that he wouldn’t wear “that flag pin” on his lapel), won’t bring a single one of those voters back to the Democratic Socialist party.

  9. Math says:

    Hey Mr. Pill, this should be right up your alley. Huhuhuhuhuhuh

  10. Aaron says:

    When one party keeps moving further and further to the left, it skews the perception to make those who are standing their ground and NOT moving, look extreme.

    Like Reagan famously said, “I didn’t leave the democrat party, they left me.”

    It is the democrats who are extreme in their views and actions, yet they label those who have not moved from their principles as “extremists”.

  11. No Math, that’s right up your alley.

  12. Aaron,

    Like Reagan famously said, “I didn’t leave the democrat party, they left me.”

    Indeed.

    Repeating what I said above, I’ve met more people than I can count, both in person and online, who had voted Democrat their entire life, but are now going to vote Republican.

    It is the democrats who are extreme in their views and actions, yet they label those who have not moved from their principles as “extremists”.

    Correct. What used to be the Democratic Party is now the Democratic Socialist Party. And what used to be the Republican party is now as much or more to the left than the Democratic party of Harry Truman’s day.

    The Tea Party is where conservatives of all political backgrounds (Republicans, Libertarians, Independents, and Democrats) have found common ground. And rather than runnning as a third party, the Tea Party has focused on taking back the Republican Party and taking back our country. First by winning Republican primaries, then by winning the general election in November.

    Step 1 is done. On to step 2.

    P.S. You’ll note that where people have split away from the Republican Party to run as a third party (or worse, to run as a Democrat – Arlen Spector), it has been the “Moderate” Republican who broke off to do so…Crist…Murkowski…

  13. Mike says:

    Reagan changed not the Democratic party. Reagan orginally admired FDR and his New Deal policies…now how did the Democratic party change from that again?

    P.S. You’ll note that where people have split away from the Republican Party to run as a third party (or worse, to run as a Democrat – Arlen Spector), it has been the “Moderate” Republican who broke off to do so

    That’s great evidence to support the notion that it is the Republican party which is shifting farther to the right rather than the Democrats to the left.

  14. Math says:

    You’re right. That’s a riot!!!

    LOL… repeatedly…

    … still chuckling…

    Thanks for sharing that.

    Need I say more?

  15. Math,

    I laugh at Democrats circling the drain.

    That’s not the same thing as laughing at Beavis and Butthead joking about someone’s (*), as you seem to think is funny.

  16. Math/ChillPill/A Dozen Different Names/,

    If a Democrat today said the same thing Harry Truman said 60 years ago, would they be welcome in today’s Democratic Party?

    The most important business in this Nation–or any other nation, for that matter-is raising and training children. If those children have the proper environment at home, and educationally, very, very few of them ever turn out wrong. I don’t think we put enough stress on the necessity of implanting in the child’s mind the moral code under which we live.

    The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

    If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

    - President Harry S. Truman

    Truman said the most important business in this Nation is raising and training children, at home and educationally (at public schools), with the fundamental Biblical basis of this Nation’s laws. He called that the “proper environment”, and said, “I don’t think we put enough stress on the necessity of implanting in the child’s mind the moral code under which we live.”

    I.E., we don’t put enough stress on implanting Biblical truth into children’s minds.

    Tell me seriously, would such a truth-speaking Democrat be welcome in today’s Democratic party?

    I say no, and point to Zell Miller as a prime example of a Democrat who never left his party, but rather was ostracised by a party that left him.

  17. Math says:

    I never said I thought it was funny. I said I thought you would think it was funny. The huhuhuhuhu is my impression of Butthead. I’m a bit disappointed, I was baiting you for another “they do it so we can do it” kind of rhetoric. You almost fell for it, but not to my satisfaction.

    I agree with the notion of giving children the proper environment and implanting in their mind a moral code under which to live their life. I’m not the spokesman for the American l feel you want to make me, so I can’t talk about others, but I would hope most would agree with those very basic concepts.

    I disagree with your extrapolation though (“I.E., we don’t put enough stress on implanting Biblical truth into children’s minds.”), as well as your notion that Jesus and the bible have a monopoly on all that is right and moral.

    There is a fine line between implanting a moral code in a child, and brainwashing them with fairy tales.

    As for your question about Truman, who knows. Things have evolved in the last 60 years. From the outside, it looks like both sides have moved closer to the extremities, so I guess he would fall somewhere in the middle.

  18. Mike says:

    Tell me seriously, would such a truth-speaking Democrat be welcome in today’s Democratic party?

    Yes. Particularly in light of the paragraphs that follow:

    Above all, we must recognize that human misery breeds most of our crime. We must wipe out our slums, improve the health of our citizens, and eliminate the inequalities of opportunity which embitter men and women and turn them toward lawlessness. In the long run, these programs represent the greatest of all anticrime measures.

    And I want to emphasize, particularly, equality of opportunity. I think every child in the Nation, regardless of his race, creed, or color, should have the right to a proper education. And when he has finished that education, he ought to have the right in industry to fair treatment in employment. If he is able and willing to do the job, he ought to be given a chance to do that job, no matter what his religious connections are, or what his color is.

  19. And I want to emphasize, particularly, equality of opportunity

    That is a conservative mindset.

    Today’s Democratic Socialist Party does not seek equality of opportunity… but rather they seek equality of results.

    “Spread the wealth around” is redistribution of wealth… seeking equality of outcomes, not equality of opportunity.

    “Fairness”, to a conservative, means equality of opportunity.

    “Fairness”, to a “progressive”, means equality of outcomes/results.

    Truman was much closer to the conservative mindset than to the progressive mindset.

    I, as a conservative, agree with Truman’s speech, including the paragraphs you quote.

    Do you, as a progressive, agree with Truman’s speech, including the paragraphs I quoted?

  20. Mike says:

    As a progressive, “fairness” does not mean equality of outcomes/results to me. It means everyone has the same opportunities and will achieve based on their merits. Unfortunately, conservative policies tend to diminish equality of opportunity. Does the poor inner city student with straight A’s have the same opportunity to achieve a college education as a C student rich kid? No. Same opportunity to good health care? No. Does a gay person have the same opportunity to marry? Serve in the military? I am not looking for even outcomes…I am looking for a level playing field.

    I agree with Truman’s speech as well, even the parts you have highlighted. And I believe most modern day Democrats would as well.

  21. As a progressive, “fairness” does not mean equality of outcomes/results to me. It means everyone has the same opportunities and will achieve based on their merits.

    As a conservative, I agree with that definition of “fairness”.

    Unfortunately, conservative policies tend to diminish equality of opportunity.

    I disagree.

    Does the poor inner city student with straight A’s have the same opportunity to achieve a college education as a C student rich kid? No.

    The poor inner city student with straight A’s has a better opportunity to achieve a college education than a C student rich kid.

    In fact, the poor inner city student with straight A’s has a better opportunity to achieve a college education than a suburban student with straight A’s. Why? Because there is more competition among the suburban students, and the bar is set higher for them. I know people who work in the admissions offices of “elite” universities, and I know this is true.

    Same opportunity to good health care? No.

    Same opportuntity? Yes. Same ability to pay for it? No. But does that mean the government should step in and redistribute the wealth? No. Let’s use an analogy from transportation… Everyone has the same opportunity to buy a Mercedes, but not everyone can afford to pay for a Mercedes. Does that mean the government should step in and redistribute the wealth? No.

    Does a gay person have the same opportunity to marry?

    Marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Gays have the same opportunity to marry someone of the opposite sex, and some do. But being gay does not give someone the right to change the definition of marriage.

    Serve in the military?

    There are good reasons why gays should not serve in certain parts of the military. I could be open to allowing gays to serve openly in some positions, but not others. I’m not going to go into the details of that right now.

    I am not looking for even outcomes…I am looking for a level playing field.

    I’ll take you at your word on that.

    I agree with Truman’s speech as well, even the parts you have highlighted. And I believe most modern day Democrats would as well.

    Perhaps most modern day rank-and-file Democrats would agree, but not most of the Democrats currently holding elected office. They give lip-service to being “Christian”, but then are very anti-Christian in their actions.

  22. Mike,
    Yesterday you quoted me and said:

    P.S. You’ll note that where people have split away from the Republican Party to run as a third party (or worse, to run as a Democrat – Arlen Spector), it has been the “Moderate” Republican who broke off to do so

    That’s great evidence to support the notion that it is the Republican party which is shifting farther to the right rather than the Democrats to the left.

    Case study: Joe Lieberman

    That’s great evidence to support the notion that it is the Democratic party which is shifting farther to the left. Democratic Socialists primaried Joe Lieberman. The Democratic Socialist won the Democratic primary. But that Democratic Socialist was too far left for the total electorate, and Joe Lieberman won the general election.

    Now, Arlen Spector knew he was too far left to win the Republican Party primary, so he switched parties. But Democratic voters rejected the turncoat and he lost the Democratic primary. So, who is currently polling better in that PA Senate Race? The Republican….

    Republican Pat Toomey inches closer to the 50% mark this month in his best showing yet in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Pennsylvania, with leaners included, shows Toomey earning 49% support, while Democratic hopeful Joe Sestak picks up 41% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate in the race, and eight percent (8%) remain undecided.

    How about Alaska? Is the Tea Party candidate who won the Republican Primary too far right? Is Murkowski more desirable to the total electorate in the state? No.

    The first poll in Alaska since Lisa Murkowski announced her write-in campaign shows Republican Joe Miller with a double digit lead. The race shifts from Leans GOP to Solid GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Balance of Power summary.

    So, what’s the take away?

    When the Democratic Party moves farther to the left, voters reject the Democrat.

    When the Republican Party moves farther to the right, voters embrace the Republican.

    The country is saying “NO!” to further moves to the left, and is saying “YES!” to moves to the right.

    The pendulum reached it’s maximum movement to the left in early January 2009. Since the Democrats took complete control of 2 of the three branches of our federal government, the pendulum has been moving right, and is still picking up speed.

  23. Oh, and don’t forget Florida. Crist is going to lose as an independent, and Rubio, the Tea Party conservative Republican, is going to win.

  24. Math says:

    Oh, and don’t forget Florida. Crist is going to lose as an independent, and Rubio, the Tea Party conservative Republican, is going to win.

    You should be careful not to jinx your guy there. Your track record on predictions on this site is not very good.

  25. Old Democratic logo: Kicking Ass
    New Democratic Logo: Circling the Drain

  26. Math says:

    Oh no the toilet humor again! Too…much…intelligence…head…exploding.

    Come on. Even you can do better.

  27. It’s so simple, even Big Bird understands the problem with Washington, D.C. …

  28. Oh no the toilet humor again!

    Perhaps you’d prefer to recite the “Coffee Party” rap…

    You can’t stop a movement, a movement, a movement…

  29. Math says:

    So that somehow makes it ok for you to be as dumb as they are?

  30. The Party Formerly Known As Democrats

    “The Party Formerly Known As Democrats”

    there is one word you will not hear mentioned in any of these campaign advertisements: Democrat.

    I was a lifelong dem until may 31th, 2008

    voted for my first republican with Sarah Palin.

    Will be voting straight conservative / repub, taking a picture off that ballot and sending it to the DNC the next time the jerks send me a prepaid envelop begging for money.
