There is some truth in the observation, which suggests that being democratic liberal is not only political view, but mainly mental disorder.
I would expect, that all the IQ points of 75% of leftists on this topic will still be below of reminding 25% conservatives IQ points here.

I guess it takes a "real" conservative to understand your attempt at the English language. Those damn liberal teachers that taught the rest of us grammar and logical thinking must be to blame for us not understanding your gibberish.

Without a court ruling saying they are, there isn't evidence to claim they are in violation of the law. In the case of Obama, no such court rulings exist. In fact the one court ruling conservative idiots have been trotting out doesn't say what they think it does.


This seems to be suggesting that they actually "think."

There are times I am not sure they do.

Oh...you are new here...and you probably think that people only comment on items that are about them.

That is not how it works, Andy. We all...including you...will comment on items that are not "about us."

You commented on the relative intelligence of conservatives versus liberals...of Democrats versus Republicans.

I commented although I am not a conservative, liberal, Republican or Democrat...mostly because I thought that what you wrote was ill-conceived and absurd.

Are we okay?

I know that you are progressive. It doesn't make you right.

When you said I stole the idea(s), implies I try to adopt as my own, correct? I never said anything like: "this is what I think..".

No...I did not just notice you. We've been talking for quite a while.

I am not even a "progressive"...although I do tend to favor a progressive agenda...mainly to protect and expand safety net programs that I think are both necessary...and reasonable.

But if you have to put a label on me...you can use "progressive."

I NEVER said you stole ideas. I may have said that you MAY HAVE STOLEN SOME IDEAS...or I may have said "IF you stole some ideas."...

...but there is no way I ever asserted that you stole them. If you see anything you think I am saying that...gives me a link and I will withdraw it and apologize, but I doubt you will find one.

I am not sure of what you are trying to say here, but I will stand on what I said immediately above.

I am very familiar with William Shakespeare and you, sir, are not at all like William Shakespeare.

@parados,
Do you think, given enough time and typewriters, a hundred Andy31's could come up with the complete works of Shakespeare?

I think they might struggle to come up with Hop on Pop.

Chumbawumba!

Nothing like some on topic discussion. Do you people have inferiority complexes always insulting others? I already know the insecurity level is critical.

That was exactly my point and wondering about you! Your remark on my presence was late at the very least... but, let's just leave it... it doesn't bother me. I'm always happy to see you wherever it is, Frank.

Frank, all of this is "Mickie mouse" playing on word's. It goes nowhere and it doesn't prove anything. I enjoy more, and much rather exchange our ideas, and I believe you would to.

Do you agree with me on this one, Frank?

All three, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, and Bobby Jindal are left wanting...lacking moral principles, politically and intellectually, but of the three, Bobby Jindal confounds me the most. I remember when he failed ignominiously in his Republican State of the Union response to President Obama. The Republican Party was so embarrassed. Jindal seems without real substance, an opportunist, jumping with both feet on the most negative of Tea Party policies. Not so long ago, when in London, Jindal stunned quite a number of people in the House of Commons when he talked about "no-go zones" in Britain, places where Sharia law trumps British law, making himself look downright ridiculous. What a goof-up.

Ooh yeah, of course. I wouldn't expect from you anything better. That is the usual pattern. You can't argue the subject, so go after other things.

I agree; he's just and opportunist without any ethics or grounding in American politics - but in this political climate, even the likes of him can make a 'name' for himself because of the media exposure.

Paul is a doctor. And has been in the Senate six years, not barely two. Cruz has argued in front of the Supreme Court, and been called the brightest student that a prominent liberal professor ever had. That being being Alan Dershowitz (sp). Don't know that much about Jindal except he is an executive and has that experience that Obama never had and it shows.

Now you have Hillary who has accomplished 0 but amass all kinds of monies. And convinced people she has some sort of privilege.

Now That Ted Cruz has Declared His Candidacy- You Ever Seen the Guy's Resume?


Pretty damn impressive...

Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 - May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest Solicitor General in the entire country, not to mention the longest tenure in Texas history.

Partner at the law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where he led the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national appellate litigation practice.

Cruz has authored 80+ SCOTUS briefs and presented 40+ oral arguments before The Court

Cruz served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Cruz was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States

Described as a 'superb' constitutional lawyer, the man's considerable skills and laser-like focus were on display for all when he took oily reptile Eric Holder by the neck and made him
answer the damn question.

In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of 31 states in defense of the principle that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.

Cruz presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

In addition to his victory in Heller, Cruz has successfully defended the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools and the majority of the 2003 Texas redistricting plan. Cruz also successfully defended, in Medellin v. Texas, the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States.

Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission

Domestic Policy Advisor to U.S. President George W. Bush on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, where he taught U.S. Supreme Court litigation
Ted Cruz is currently junior US Senator from Texas. In order to win the 2012 Republican nomination for the Senate seat vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison, Cruz had to defeat Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst -heavily favored/backed by the DC old-guard GOP- in the Republican primary runoff. In the event, TEA Party favorite Cruz crushed Dewhurst, 57-43%...
he then beat Democrat Paul Sadler in the general election by a similar margin, 56-41. Cruz is also endorsed by the Tea Party Movement and the Republican Liberty Caucus.

On November 14, 2012, Cruz was appointed vice-chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He is now spearheading efforts in the Senate to have root-and-branch...

@cicerone imposter,
I like that there is a Cuban-Canajun candidate out there.

Kind of entertaining given the whole thing with Jeb Bush declaring himself as Hispanic in 2009.

Shows where at least one group of people think an important voting block will be.

It's going to be interesting to watch the twists and turns as Republicans try to access a group that they want as voters, but don't necessarily want as citizens.

Popcorn season is coming up for watchers of American politics.
