They are still at it, but the names are becoming dog whistle code now. I just read one: Neb Jr.
I have no idea how that one was constructed.

I have vowed to never participate in a thread where I would be called upon to explain or defend an Obama policies as I have over the last four years. We won, it's his last term, if you can't deal with it too bad. They can whine to their hearts content. I don't care.

Nobody is going to kill Medicare and make old people in this generation or any other generation fight it out on the open market to try to get themselves health insurance. We are not going to do that.

We are not going to give a 20 percent tax cut to millionaires and billionaires and expect programs like food stamps and kids' health insurance to cover the cost of that tax cut.

We`re not make you clear it with your boss if you want to get birth control under the insurance plan that you're on.We are not going to redefine rape.

We are not going to amend the United States Constitution to stop gay people from getting married.

We are not eliminating the Department of Energy or the Department of Education or Housing at the federal level. We are not going to spend $2 trillion on the military that the military does not want.

We are not scaling back on student loans because the country`s new plan is that you should borrow money from your parents.

We are not vetoing the DREAM Act. We are not self-deporting.

We are not letting Detroit go bankrupt.

We are not starting a trade war with China on Inauguration Day in January.

We are not going to have, as a president, a man who once led a mob of friends to run down a scared, gay kid, to hold him down and forcibly cut his hair off with a pair of scissors while that kid cried and screamed for help and there was no apology, not ever.

We are not going to have a Secretary of State John Bolton. We are not bringing Dick Cheney back.

We are not going to have a foreign policy shop stocked with architects of the Iraq war. We are not going to do it. We had the chance to do that if we wanted to do that, as a country. And we said no, last night, loudly.

I was flipping channels and actually saw this rant. Then I ignored her and clicked to the next channel. Why would any sane person take this seriously?

The bad news is four more years. The good news is ONLY four more years. May they go fast and not furious.

It very well encapsulates what the election was about. We won. You lost. I don't know about just four more. Old Republicans are going into the ground while young Democrats are coming out of the woodwork. The Republicans may not win the White House for a generation or more unless they change their tune.

That's a great list!

My favorite has to be The Munificent Sun-King Lightworker. I don't even know what that means, but I think I may put it on my business cards as my job title!!!

I've always that it ironic that a hard core republican state like Nebraska all the sudden goes the way of the eco-environmentalsit liberals and 'Maobama" is, of course, to blame for holding up the pipeline.

Yes, it does seem odd. But if you start seeing a conspiracy in everything, you become one of them.

NIMBYism.

"Pipeline, you say! Excellent! Start building it tomorrow! What? Environmental impact? Pffft! Progress!"

"Oh, wait... you're not proposing building that pipeline here, are you?"

"What? You are? Well... then hang on just one doggone minute!"
