I can’t believe I have to say this

IMO, the Democratic party is not perfect. I don’t defend everything Barack Obama does. I don’t defend everything that ANY member of the Democratic party does.

Again, IMO, the only perfect candidate is me. IMO.

But the GOP is perfectly evil.

Do away with SS? Check.

Do away with medicare? Check.

Take our retirement accounts? Check.

Take our pensions? Check.

Declare this to be a “christian” nation, in defiance of the constitution and everything that’s holy? Check.

Deny voting rights? Check.

Gawd, the list goes on. Do I really have to?

Fuck the environment? Check.

A woman’s right to a legal medical procedure? Check.

Tax cuts for people making more than $250K/year matter more than middle class tax cuts? Check.

It just goes on and on. The GOP is in full-on assault mode against “us”.

The Democratic party isn’t perfect. Give me a green party or progressive party who can defeat the GOP candidate (who is ALWAYS well-funded by some rich fucker). I’ll vote for them.

But I’ll ALWAYS vote to defeat the GOP.

And I ALWAYS vote.

    If an innocent person was tortured or wrongfully detained, the federal government should be required to pay them a lot of money.

    However we do have the right to seize enemy fighters, and to detain them as POWs until the end of the war.

    “If an innocent person was tortured or wrongfully detained, the federal government should be required to pay them a lot of money.”

    Probably true, not as if we’d ever actually do such a thing.

    “However we do have the right to seize enemy fighters, and to detain them as POWs until the end of the war.”

    We’re at war with a country now? That’s news to me.

    We’re at war with al-Qaida, and with all who ally with al-Qa’ida.

    Though if Obama keeps causing trouble in Ukraine we might well end up at war with Russia.

    I confess to being at a bit of a loss why this Black Sea naval base is worth having a nuclear war over.

    I can understand Georgia. There’s oil in the Caspian and we need to protect the Georgian pipelines.

    But Ukraine? Why do we care if the Russians have a naval base there?

    Uh, isn’t that like war against povery or war on drugs? What/who is Al Qaida?

    As for the Ukraine, complete agreement. Why are we supporting fascists and subverting democracy for the umpteenth time?

    I’ve been in the Ukraine. Most boring region I’ve visited outside the US mid-west. Fuck’em

    No. This is a war against an a specific enemy that is bent on attacking us.

    What/who is Al Qaida?

    Why are we supporting fascists and subverting democracy for the umpteenth time?

    It seems to be an attempt to prevent the Russians from using a Ukrainian naval base.

    Gore Vidal:

    “There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party … and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt—until recently … and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties”

    Secrecy?

    Now the current misadministration is defending the previous one:

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/13/white-house-cia-torture-top-secret-documents-senate

    Christ, at this stage this is reminding me of the Nixon tapes.

    Whatever happened to transparency? And as far as the idea of a “2”-party system is concerned, why not kick the “other” party when it’s down?

    Or has the intelligence community instituted a coup d’etat and the potus is a hostage?

    WTF is going on?

    This is particularly disturbing:

    “For its part, the CIA has accused Senate staffers of conducting potential criminal activity, and the Department of Justice is conducting an investigation into all the claims.”

    The GOP and the DNC are indeed different.

    One has a pachyderm as a symbol, the other a jackass.
