    Constantly "remembering 9/11" while forgetting to fund medical care for the first responders suffering lung disease after working tirelessly for months to recover the dead from ground zero.

    Complaining that the economy is so awful since 2008, while opposing social safety nets and supporting deregulation that would lead us to another financial collapse.

    Good guys with guns don't kill people...... they just shoot bad guys with guns, dead.

    The solution to people shooting people with guns is to make it easier for more people to get guns (the kind that don't kill people).

    Pretending tax hikes would be used for "repairing crumbling infrastructure" while simultaneously pandering to a need to "narrow the wealth gap" with tax hikes.

    Yes, I accept that the Great Recession began 13 months before September 2008......But I just know in my heart.....It was Obama's fault.... I knew it before he was even elected and took office...

    Bill Clinton's fascist "National Homeownership Strategy" had nothing to do with the housing meltdown.

    I get the impatience with pretense about repairing crumbling infrastructure -- folks haven't done very well in putting their practices where their mouth is -- but is that inconsistent with narrowing the wealth gap with tax hikes on the wealthy?

    Repairing infrastructure means more well-paying jobs and more money infused in the economy which means even more jobs.

    Tax hikes on the wealthy means more money for such worthy endeavors, supposing the politicians actually followed through and committed to the infrastructure.

    Aren't those terrorists terrible? Why just the other day that terrible dude stole a candy bar and a pack of cigarettes and he deserved to be filled full of bullet holes......thank goodness they were able to take that nice man who shot up that Planned Parenthood into custody so he can face trial to see if he's guilty.......Abortion is "murder" you know....

    Sending the troops to fight a war of lies was good for America, we almost eliminated an entire generation.
