    Hoser Ted Cruz doesn't know what a machine gun is.…..HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Ted's killing machine is an AR-15 military assault rifle similar to the one used to kill the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. But, he's a macho guy and will get bonus points from ppl 'round here who also feel macho when they're shooting and killing stuff.

    Republicans resisted the ACA early and often and is to the point that people make jokes about it.  The whole quote maintains the we/they resist by all means all the time mindset.  How about something positive like "Participating early makes things happen sooner".

    Chickenshit Triangulating Democrats have hobbled this president (himself not a minor abuser of triangulation) for his entire time in office. 

    This Iran deal is where Democrats will either stand up for their President and the principles of diplomacy and peace or else they will bow to mighty AIPAC and swear allegiance to a country that isn't the one they're elected to govern.

    Steve Israel has chosen the latter.

    New York Rep. Steve Israel said Tuesday that he would oppose the nonproliferation deal at the center of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy agenda when it comes up for a congressional vote in September — the most high profile Democrat in the House to do so yet.

    Of course, Israel has also been horrible in running the DSCC and losing seats regularly and consistently. 

    (Like Bennet did.)

    And both Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet were some of the first to play this insidious game. "Blue Dogs" my ass.

      I agree the time for DLC triangulating should have been declared over long ago. But, once again, triangulating had nothing to do with Udall's defeat. If anything the strident all lady parts all the time, Cory is a lying flip flopper who hates women and abortion rights and birth control should be everyone's upper most concern in this election campaign strategy made him sound more extreme lefty, not more conservative-lite. Also just grumpy and scolding. People prefer a little sunny charm. See Hick, about as DLC triangulated as you can possibly be.

    all the anti-government rhetoric, the "Obama hates America" lies, the gun-nut radicals, the "blood of tyrants" gives you this: Dumass Rednecks shooting at volunteers who've sworn to give their lives to protect us.

    Thanks, Republicans. Thanks, "Both Sides Do It" liars. Thanks, Bipartisanship.

      It takes a special kind of moron to try to start a race war within and against the US military.

      These white supremacy groups want military training and access to weapons. Apparently, they're not above trying to provoke a military response to further their own racist propaganda.

      Your “thank you’s” don’t make sense,though…these are race extremists – probably Republicans are too “moderate” for their agenda. Both sides actually could condemn them, if they would go there.

    Copycat theater shooter in Tennessee looks more like suicide by cop in a blaze of self-imagined glory.  Only one moviegoer slightly injured fortunately.  Just a lot of pepper spray while he waited for cops to arrive. Faux shooter killed by SWAT team

    Moddy's hero had a gun, a hatchet and two backpacks full of who knows what that the bomb squad will blow up and examine afterwards for ammo, bombs or ladies's underwear.
