So, the conservative ideal would be for everyone to own their own businesses. Right. They would have no employees, since everyone is busy running their own businesses. That doesn't make sense.

I hope you didn't have any employees. It would have been hell for them to work for you. After all, look at the disdain you show for 'employees'.

I suppose to be looked upon with any respect by a conservative, a person MUST own a business and not be an employee.

Conservatives think they are so much better than everyone else. That's why they are failing and flailing around with no solid ground to stand upon.

No more unhealthy than you and yours regurgitating the same crap over and over. It reached the point of ad nauseam a long time back.

How old are you people??? And you make claims that you are the "educated" party?? Is stupidity a major in college? I have never seen so many immature "adults" where it concerns Obama's re-election. You all need to grow up.

I wonder if that girl who was so excited got her free car, gas and mortgage paid for by Obama.

Too bad Obama does not act like a true leader. Only 1430 days before the loser is gone.

Now the GOP wants to restoke the culture wars, tax the working poor, and give breaks to the already wealthy while maintaining a cold war military and allowing our infrastructure to continue to deteriorate. This Republican obsession with blocking spending on America in favor of blowing up more sand and dirt in the middle east just makes no sense at any level. Yet they cling to it with what may prove to be a death grip.
Silly accusations? Would these include the economy, Obamacare, tax increases for nearly every American or unemployment for example? Your asinine post only further illustrates the continued weak attempts by Obama worshipers to insulate The One from criticism and to deflect the real issues.

Attendance down by half is cause for a celebration thread?

Obama is a great President on so many levels.
Oh, yeah, real great.
  • Massive debt.
  • Highest unemployment since the Carter years.
  • America's credit rating lowered.
  • Little or no growth in the economy.
  • High inflation (been to the grocery store lately?).
  • Health care costs going up (not down, as he promised ... but who's surprised?).
  • Massive increase in government regulations.
  • Taxes going up for nearly everyone, big time (yeah, he lied to you about that too, huh?).
  • Gasoline prices up $2/gal in most places since he took office.
On foreign policy
  • We are in greater danger now than when he took office
  • Middle East increasingly under control of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood which he enabled and even facilitated.
  • Iran getting closer to a nuclear weapon, as Obama does nothing.
  • Israel in greater danger.
  • Our relationship with our allies is worse.
  • Russia becoming a threat again under Obama's "leadership."
Tell us again why he is "great"?

It shows very directly that for conservatives certain voters don't count. That any politician receiving the votes of the unemployed and those on welfare in the minds of conservatives received the votes of illegitimate Americans who are takers voting themselves free stuff.

The core of conservatism is exclusion.
Actually the core of conservatism is personal accountability and reality. Leftists like to dream about hope & change and pie in the sky ideals while blaming others for their failures. Where has any of that gotten us over the last four years? This is why the people mentioned in your post obviously voted for Obama despite his endless epic failures.

God...who is it that's ignorant/stupid?
Then again, conservatives have no sense of humor, especially when it comes to sarcastic humor.
I'll not waste time discussing smilies with you. You can't define someone else's use of the emotioncons, so your post is senseless. Senseless!,....but what else is new with the loony left.

As a minority myself, I completely disagree with you. America became diverse (as currently diversity is conceived) as a result of the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act. If you care to investigate, this piece of Legislation was plotted by three Democrats Emmanuel Celler, Philip Hart, and Ted Kennedy. How is that a fair path to gain political power? You open the gates and a flood of immigrants with no sense of historical and political trend of this country will tilt the balance in the Democratic party's favor. With that said, 95% percent of us don't know what the three branches of Government are; let alone the bill of rights and constitution; let alone the ****ing language. That to me is a total disgrace! How can we go to another country and be so out of touch with the new homeland? But I digress.

Diversity is not good because the true nature of the Democratic party to make this nation racially or ethnically diverse was ill intended. Make no mistake, Republicans are no better than Democrats. I'm personally sick of the race pimping and the social division that this has brought. But even more disgusting is the idea of bringing millions of clueless souls and minds to allure them into a political change. A change that does not protect your interests at best.

Who is John Galt?

conservatives continue to show they hate millions if their fellow Americans and will take the flimsiest of reasons to share their disdain.
The comparison is only "nonsense" if you're a liberal.

Your idiots fired the first salvo and are whining about others disagreeing and ridiculing your posts.

Whine on.....
