Actions To ‘Fundamentally Transform’ US

Posted: May 26, 2013 at 1:47 a.m.

Like past Obama administration scandals, the Benghazi incompetence and cover-up, the Department of Justice’s anti-media activities, and the IRS’s political targeting and suppression of conservatives reveal the administration’s contempt for Constitutional limitations on the powers a sovereign people grant central government.

Wing-nut word salad. Buddy again forgets to actually say anything. That's certainly his best defense against having his claims roasted to a crisp: avoid factual, substantive claims. It's like taking two hours worth of Limbaugh/Hannity/Beck, scrambling it all up into a wing-nut soup and randomly pulling vague conjecture and cliche' insults out of the whole horrid mess.

"But Nixon was a crook." That was useful.

Buddy says:
"[Obama] falsely characterized limited government advocates as “voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems” [my emphasis]."

Then adds:
"Maybe there’s one anarchist somewhere who believes that...">>

Really? One person? Buddy is going to claim that it's not a considerable portion of his Teabaggers that believe that? Good grief.

And how are these methods working for team conservative? Are they really fooling anyone outside of your silly base? Apparently not at all:

"Parties moving in opposite directions"

Buddy: "So tyranny begins."

Keep talking wing-nuts.

This anti-American Fascist Tea Party rant is ridiculous. The IRS should be given a medal for asking questions as why radical groups are applying for tax exempt status.

Yes but Sandy, look at how well Buddy's type of stupidity is working for him:

"Gallup Poll And A New Study Both Confirm America Is Starting To Lean Left"

Here's what Bob Dole thinks of what the Buddy type wingnuts are doing to a once viable party:

"Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-KS) [former Republican national chairman, the 1976 GOP vice presidential pick, and the 1996 Republican presidential nominee] told Fox News Sunday this week that the Senate Republicans are abusing the filibuster and that he doubts he, Richard Nixon, or Ronald Reagan could make it in today’s Republican Party.

WALLACE: What do you think of your party, the Republicans today?

DOLE: I think they ought to put a sign on the national committee doors that says “closed for repairs” until New Year’s Day next year — and spend that time going over ideas and positive agendas.

WALLACE: You describe the GOP of your generation as Eisenhower Republicans, moderate Republicans. Could people like you, even Ronald Reagan — could you make it in today’s Republican Party.

DOLE: I doubt it. Reagan couldn’t have made it. Certainly Nixon couldn’t have made it, cause he had ideas. We might have made it, but I doubt it.

Dole, now 89, also took his own party to task for abuse of the Senate’s closure rules. Wallace noted that “In your first two years as a Senator, there were 7 motions filed — cloture motions to end debate. In the last two years, there were 115 cloture motions,” and asked the five-term Senator whether it is inappropriate that due to minority obstruction it now takes a 60-vote super-majority to pass any legislation or confirm any nominees.
“No doubt about it,” Dole told him, “There are some cases where you could probably justify if, but not many.”

Keep talking wing-nuts.

Comparing one corrupt government official with another doesn't make a case for anything. Freebie's thinking is flawed as usual because one person committing a crime does not exonerate another committing the same or similar crimes.

Sanyjobob makes the kind of statement one might expect from a nutcase. "Radical group" progressive left wing tax exempt organizations far outnumber all others (unless you count churches and charities one at a time). Whoever the nutcase is doen't make a rational argument, merely a senseless and uninformed assertion.

Facts in the methods, legal and not, that have been used by the Obama "machine" are being revealed. As "transparency" is forced upon it they current administrations "army" is getting nervous and they should be. They have been carefully set up after taking all the rope they could use. Now they are caught.

Like any other group of corrupt politicians, if they break the law or lie to Congress under oath they should go to jail. Never mind the deceptions upon the American people....all Americans. Those that support them or not included. Unfortunately there is no criminal penalty for that.

Thanks for stating the truth, Mr. Rogers.

I don't know if you read the comments or not but I'm sure you knew you were going to be slammed by Obama supporters.

They hate freedom and truth, especially truth.

I would like to add my thanks for a well written editiorial. As a conservative Mr. Rogers seems to be leaning more towards where more conservatives need to go. A place a bit more Libertarian appears in the offing. Ah, how refreshing! Patrioteer....he hasn't been slammed by anyone capable of a delivering a meaningful "slam". Hehehehe!!!!

What a bucket of emesis! Fact-free "circumstantial evidence" transformed through the magic of an inflamed mind into a case of acute, septic biliary obstruction: bile and pus dripping from every orifice. Poor Buddy. All this purulence from a simple butt pimple suddenly exacerbating into an abscess of imagined tyranny.

Buddy, the post scriptum notes that you're continuing to work on becoming educated. My condolences on your failure.

Sorry for the ad hominum, but your paucity of substance leaves no other option.

It's nice that FLL wants to apologize for using the only tactic that he and his left-wing goons employ when confronted by such weapons as truth and facts. It's too bad for them that people are starting to see them for what they are, because the screeching that ensues from their commentary becomes more juvenile as time passes.

And to explain some basic history to the factually-challenged Coralie, Nixon did not just have the Southern Strategy, he had McGovern for an opponent...sort of like having Mitt Romney, only far less intelligent.

Because not taking them to task and revealing their true nature is tantamount to surrendering to their dysfunctional "intellectual" (not) meanderings. That would defy truth, justice, and logic.

Keep talking wingnuts. Whatever you're doing, it's work out very nicely... but not in the way you hope.

Gallup Poll And A New Study Both Confirm America Is Starting To Lean Left

"Gallup just released a poll that reveals more and more Americans are shifting in ideological attitudes, and identifying themselves as ‘liberals’ in regard to social and economic issues. At the same time, fewer Americans are describing themselves as ‘conservatives.’"

"Social liberalism has grown by six points since 2001 and now attracts half of rank-and-file Democrats and Democratic leaners.”

This new survey shows changes in Americans’ ideology: economic conservatism is at a five-year low, while social liberalism has registered its highest support…" --Gallup

Since 2001 the number of self-identified liberals is up 15 points, the number of self-identified conservatives is down 6 points.

RE "Rather than stand for re-election on his pathetic record, Obama, his team and supporters used government power to subvert the election."
And the proof of this is.... ?

Oh, wait-- maybe Obama's record isn't as pathetic as you think/hope/wish it were. Maybe the preferences of the electorate subverted the election, while Republican voter ID laws, gerrymandering and misinformation failed to do so.

Look up "Occam's Razor".

Reality has, more and more, a liberal bias.

RE "Alpha lines up behind you and just can't get enough punishment."
What punishment would that be? You must be thinking of the way Karl Rove showed us how the election would turn out. Oh-- wait....

Oh noes! Not the COMFY CHAIR! And this, right after being poked with the soft cushions? For the love of god, Mary and baby Jesus too, show some mercy!

Jeffie says I've already lost. Well, who can compete with a powerful argument like that? It's interesting to see that most Americans now choose the moniker: "Progressive."

And it beats the "Conservative" label: 67/62. That doesn't look like losing to me. But then, I don't get my evidence just from "my head," like Jeffieboy does.

"My evidence is in my head..." --jeffieboy, April 23, 2013

From 2009 but it's still holds up:

"The Republican Party has become many bad things—intolerant, inert, fly-blown, incoherent, and delusional—but the worst is that the GOP is no longer young. The GOP, according to a Gallup poll, has lost, forgotten, ignored, just generally scared off the younger voters, non-white voters, and female voters in all demographics.
What is a political party that is vastly white, middle-aged, male, Southern, pious, conservative, aggrieved, impotent, nostalgic, rude—and regarded negatively by more than half the respondents? Time magazine’s Republican political consultant Mike Murphy looks at the demographics and warns of a coming “ice age” for the party. That is grossly optimistic... The GOP is the equivalent of a shrinking third party on its way to becoming a museum piece beside the Whigs, the Greenbacks, and the Prohibitionists. The GOP is like a zombie cartoon reading the daily headlines of the last four years and asking, “Am I dead?”

If the sentiment is that we, as conservatives, should open our eyes and realize we need to move left , then I'm sorry that wont be happening for me.
In fact, if the points continue to go left in a few years I might be a right wing extremist. I'm ok with that to.

RE "What have you got going for you, Irish, that you can so contemptuously dismiss other people's intelligence and integrity?"
IrishDensa is a drive-by, hit-and-run participant, and so not likely to respond. That being the case, here are the particulars:

Suny College At Potsdam, Potsdam, NY (Master's, 1998)
Major: Secondary Social Studies
Minor: Economics (Undergrad)

Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY (Bachelor's, 1986)
Major: Accounting

Suny College Of Technology At Canton, Canton, NY (Associate's, 1984)
Major: Accounting
Greek: Phi Theta Kappa

At this time, he is employed in right-wing AM radio, a genre that's losing money. See
Fortunately for IrishDensa, he works in a backwater station in a Teabagger market. And, by his own admission, he must be pretty smart for a person of Irish descent.
