WTF Since when was a 40% vote enough for a motion to pass or stall

you're a whore, but in a good way. Kindof.
I'm sorry, did you say DEM's and Spending spree?

Yes. You might be interested to know that the Dem's, for a few more days control the House, Senate, and have the Presidency. Sooooo, when they load up the spending to bring money back to their jurisdictions, it only makes sense that the other side brings money back to their districts as well - in case the stupidity passes.

Or, perhaps you were thinking that all the conservatives should just donate their cash to the democrat districs.

When the CONS prevented the bill from proceeding, they prevented ALL of the pork in the bill from being spent. This isn't rocket science.

Why was the DEM, Harry, trying to ram it through at the last second? TO MAXIMIZE HIS FUCKING SPENDING SPREE.

I'm sorry, I missed the 21 republicans who voted to remove earmarks and then take them, versus 4 democrats who voted to remove and then took them.

But your post really just validated the true point I was makeing. Once again, you missed the true point. BOTH sides are crooked. Yet, you stick with the democrat bashing to avoid explaining that your sides politicians have been caught being two faced liars, and instead use the democrats as an excuse to make it okay for them to do.

This is my main problem with the rank and file voting contingent of the tea party. They will go to any lengths to validate the bad apples in their party, as long as they are in their party. The attitude that conservatives can do no wrong and, if they do, it's all because of liberals, is part of what is absolutely demolishing this country. At least with Liberals, you will find more of them willing to vote over party lines, than you stuck on stupid tow the line conservatives who are all in on the neocon koolaid and refuse to even think outside the line.

But I think you're slightly incorrect here, most of the Tea Partiers I know are pretty freaking ticked off at Scott Brown for the jobs bill. :lol:

And also his vote on DADT apparently :waw: Nothing makes a man seem more wussy than being scared of men that like men.

Way to take my words out of context. If you had been following along with the conversation, you'd know that we were talking about the ratio of votes needed to pass a law.

Why would I be wanting to "win an internet forum" :lol: when I stated that I wasn't so clear on what I was talking about. Sounds like you are the one trying his hardest to "win an internet forum"..
We were also talking about the will of the people. In fact, you even said the phrase "will of the people" so you can stop backpedaling.

It's ok that you have a hard time acknowledging the Dems have put forth more spending in the past 2 years than in the rest of our gov't combined. It's because you refuse to focus on the spending. The conservatives understand your point of view and beat you up with it regularly.

No one said the conservatives were blameless, just less blameless.

It's the democrats that are having a tough time getting used to 11/2.

:lol: Way to prove my point. You are exactly what is wrong with the conservative voting demographic. Stuck on stupid.

Before you answer any further, let me ask you 3 questions.

1) I have only been registered with 1 political party. Name it.

2) Which party candidates did I vote more in favor of this past election?

3) Which voting demographic is more likely to vote across party lines if the candidate is better than their own party's candidate?

:case:

There you go again. . .

making irrelevant claims to sidetrack from your spending spree.

You're like a wife trying to distract from the creditcard bills with a shitty blowjob.

Yeah, that's what I thought you would do. Cop out. Because you know what I was going to tell you is that I was 1) Registered Republican, 2) Voted more for republicans than democrats, & 3) Believe more liberals would vote for conservatives than vice versa.

Which is why I'm no longer registered republican, but independant, because the party is filled with really stupid, stuck on one line, closed minded morons like you who absolutely refuse to look at the crap many republicans are doing, and focus 100% on the democrtats, and are a big part of the reason we keep voting fucking criminals and liars into office because 'at leas they ain't no democrat'.

I am a fiscal conservative. Why you keep saying 'My spending spree', when it's not, show's really how fucking dumb you are.

Democrats have controlled the house & senate for 4 years, & the presidency for 2.

I'm not ignoring the conservatives. Unfortunately, what's happening is that you're ignoring dollars to talk about pennies. I know. The spending spree is way too big a topic for you to grasp. It's ok. I only expect you to make claims about yourself & no matter what I say, go Democrat Talking Points/ aka blowjobs on me. It's boring really.

Did you miss the last two words?

Me

And here was your reply:

What am I missing here?
That "The Church" as an institution (Might as well call it a private company), is quite different from "religion".

They knew you can't seperate religion from people in office, and thus from government itself, it's the same subconcious issue that some folks have with Obama (Because they think he's Muslim)/JFK because he was Catholic/Romney because he's Mormon/Smilin' Joe because he's Jewish....and so on.

We have the same issue today with large corporations running things in much the same way that The Church did when they all got ticked off and left the olde country.

I had no idea you wanted to nitpick. :) Of course the Framers wanted people to be able to be religious, they however didn't want religion or the Church or the FSM (sadly) established by and/or integrated into government.

No, they haven't. Stop pretending to understand the concept of deficit spending.
It's because you refuse to focus on the spending. The conservatives understand your point of view and beat you up with it regularly.

No, they're not. They do the exact same things. You are blinded by your party. They are equally to blame.
It's the democrats that are having a tough time getting used to 11/2.
And this right here folks, that conservatives have now started referring to the elections the same way people refer to a terrorist attack while happily agreeing to fuck over the people who responded to that terrorist attack so that Kim Kardashian doesn't have to shell out 2% more on her taxes, shows how unbelievably immoral, unethical and downright hypocritical the entirety of the conservative base is. Democracts and liberals may be spineless wimps but republicans and conservatives are evil idiots.

Except that it does, and did from day 1.

Why is killing a human illegal, but killing a squirrel not?

You'll see when the Zombie Space Clown party rises in power.
