(The Atlantic Wire)   In a rare moment of bi-partisan consensus, almost all Senators on both sides of the aisle in the US Senate have come to the same conclusion: freshman Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is a huge dick   (theatlanticwire.com) divider line 270

Giltric: Countries with less income disparity and a more homogenized population than the US


You have yet to explain how that is relevant at all.

Giltric: monarchies where it's populace are subjects with far less rights than are celebrated in the US.

Mr. Breeze: That's how Democrats operate. Throw in some distracting arguments, a few leftist blogs and forums, a few media outlets such as MSNBC, Huffington Post, CNN, and a few popular celebrities and the left becomes very successful at making the right look stupid on all these issues. T


The first issue was evolution. How exactly does the media and celebrities make the GOP so wrong on that?

Elzar: One Senator decides to take on the establishment and suddenly all you libby libs are for protecting the good ole boys club... As a master of rebuttal, Senator Cruz has much more in common with Mr. Smith then any of you pinkos will ever know.

The Democrats are also very good at taking one person's stupid opinion (ie "legitimate rape") and making that the official opinion of the Republican party.


Democrats don't have to make Republicans look stupid.  All they have to do is let Republicans talk for five minutes.

And if you don't want stupid Todd Akin comments becoming the official opinion of the Republican Party, then your Vice Presidential candidate shouldn't co-sponsor bills with Todd Akin that try to legalize his stupid comments.

It's not that Republicans make stupid arguments it's just that there's a huge conspiracy to make them look stupid.  Yeah, that's the ticket.

I sure didn't hear any Republicans talking about how reprehensible that stupid opinion was; I just heard a whole lot of them talking about how bad it "sounded."  Kind of implies that they actually somewhat agree with that opinion, doesn't it?

I remember during the campaign, Rmoney not only refused to denounce the birther bullshiat, he made this "joke" at an appearance: "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

The Republican Party not only refuses to denounce this crazy shiat, they give it winks and nods.

Giltric: Lionel Mandrake: Giltric: Lionel Mandrake: Giltric: Lionel Mandrake: Giltric: I'm more fond of people who speak their mind and take principled stands than people who are more interested in popularity contests

Politics is a popularity contest, but, OK.  Good luck with that.  I'm super-OK with Teddy being all talk and no accomplishment.

Of course it is. Thats how C students who run companies into the ground get elected, thats how constitutional scholars who continue if not expand unconstitutional programs get elected etc...and in both cases...twice.

Oh, now you know better than SCOTUS?

Quite an ego you've got there.

Probably just an average sized one as far as Fark is concerned.

A history of giving government an inch has lead to them taking miles.
A history of appointing Justices who will judge the way you want them to hasn't helped either.

Nice bumper stickers.

K.I.S.S.

Bumper stickers often tell the truth........

Giltric: dericwater: The AWB had measurable effect. We saw what happened after it was passed and what happend after its passage expired in 2004. Allowing the CDC to do the study would help gather more and better data to help give better policy and legislation. But the GOP stopped that. They rather be ignorant and have people dead than understand the causes and propose solutions. No answer will be permanent. That's why we have a living government. We don't write laws (like the farking bible) and expect that to explain everything for eternity. When new problems crop up, we propose new solutions. When printable guns come into being, we'll deal with them then. Just because the possibility of printable guns in the near future doesn't mean we shouldn't deal with the problems of the present. People SHOULD know how many clips you have. People with exception amount of weapons and ammo are a danger to society and should be monitored. Don't want to be monitored? Don't have them.

Cite on the measurable part regarding the AWB?

How many spree killers or murderers who have used a firearm to kill have had an exceptional amount of weapons targetted under the proposed or expired AWBs?

Don't want a trans vaginal ultrasound?....don't get an abortion....good analogy or no? If not why?


Before the 2004 AWB rescinding versus after the 2004 rescinding of the AWB, doubled the number of mass murders.  Here's the link:  http://election.princeton.edu/2012/12/14/did-the-federal-ban-on-assau l t-weapons-matter/  From 1995 to 2004, 1.6 shootings per year with 20.9 people shot per year. From 2005 to 2012 (after the expiration of the AWB by GW Bush), 3.4 shootings per year with 54.8 people shot per year.  Is that pretty clear to you? If not fark YOU, MOTHER farkER!!!

Get an abortion, don't need an unnecessary trans vaginal ultrasound.  What the fark does that ultrasound do other than shame the pregnant woman? Huh? What THE fark DOES IT farkING DO? fark YOU, MOTHER farkER!!!!

moanerific: We have created amendments that take the power of other ones yes. But you don't just start nullifying the Bill of Rights! Once you get rid of one, who gives a shiat about the rest of the BoR?


I don't really see why one amendment should be treated differently from another amendment just because of its number. Basically you're arguing that, for example, the 3rd is more important than the 13th, just because the 3rd is in the Bill of Rights and the 13th isn't. The hell with its number. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

You do realize that a change of 0.308% in the number of people killed by guns (used the total of 11000 from 2010).  Its a crap study based on a horrible law full of loopholes (guess I'll have to buy the brown one) and doesn't actually break apart mass shootings w/ hand guns, high cap,  whatever flaky term is used to define an assault weapon and "normal" rifles/shotguns.

http://factcheck.org/2012/12/gun-rhetoric-vs-gun-facts/

Hell if you just wanna make a graph and try and prove something the number of overall murders has been going down significantly since the AWB expired, that's about the same level of thought that went into what you linked.

red5ish: When you've been in the Senate for less than two months and you are being compared to Joe McCarthy you might want to re-think your behavior.


Except Cruz (and many of his back-home supporters) would take that comparison as a compliment.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Magorn: Mentat: "Jim Demint without the charm."

According to Robert's Rules of Order, that constitutes a burn.

Do I have a second?

I believe there is a motion to re-commit on the table vis-a-vis whether an "Oh SNAP" would be an appropriate determination at this point

I filibuster. Because Fartbama.


Senator Mike Lee, is that you?

Weaver95: DROxINxTHExWIND: "Behind closed doors, some Republican senators report that Cruz, in his stone-cold serious prosecutorial style, speaks at length when it's far more common for freshmen to wait before asserting themselves - particularly ones who were just sworn in,"

Fark your fake-ass civility and your Old Boys Club rules about who can speak and when. He's supposed to wait to talk? Wait until what, exactly? The fark is he supposed to do everyday? He was elected to represent his constituents by trying to influence legislation that will benefit them, not to sit in a room deffering to old clowns.

you wanna seat in the game you gotta learn to play by the rules.


Does Elizabeth Warren play by those rules?  I think it's Cruz's style that really gets to people.  He needs a coach.

I've never heard anyone claim that she does not.

But she does draw headlines by.. (gasp) doing her job.
