Martin Luther King?  You mean the infamous Communist that was denounced on the Senate floor by Jesse Helms (R-NC) in the 80s?

Keep electing retards like this and this country really will fail

/and maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing

No, it does not take "only one with passion". That's all you need to start; but if you don't get more people to support it, the idea isn't going anywhere.

Yes, preventing people from access to affordable healthcare is JUST LIKE the Civil Rights Movement.

GO FARK YOURSELF, Yoho

This is what gerrymandering gives us - Tom Delay, Ted Yoho, "Guam is going to capsize" guy, Cynthia McKinney, Corrine Brown, etc...

It's like the time Ghandi decided to violently overthrow the British or when the Jews rounded up the Germans for mass extermination.

S

adly they actually seem to believe this. They are so buried in their echo chamber where everyone repeats the same lies about the ACA that they can't imagine it being anything other than the worst thing to happen to the US since the civil war.

Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will pull a James Earl Ray on Ted Cruz.....

Sorry I know its tasteless but I live in his district and really really hate that shiatsack.

Cue the "no hate like liberal hate" comments from people who proudly support hate mongers

"Our fight to take healthcare away from millions of Americans is the same as the Civil Rights Movement, in which we conservatives were also playing the villain."

How's that GOP outreach going?

Walesa was black?

I thought he was a white, Polish, socialist trade unionist.

TFAThe House passed on Friday a continuing resolution that will provide funding for the government but defund the health care law. Passage of the bill, which has no chance of winning approval in the Democratic-controlled Senate, greatly raises the risk of a government shutdown.

The best part is that they all went and got their free annual physical before casting their votes to defund the ACA
 
2013-09-20 04:01:54 PM
These farking idiots are delusional... The GOP will blink on this.

The ACA is law. Get over it and pay the bills you assholes authorized.

So next week when the Senate sends the bill back to the house with "defunding" provision removed and the house votes no on it it will be the fault of the GOP controlled house? Right?

You see, Jackie Robinson wore number 42 and he was black. This is to help the blacks, not hinder them. The GOP is the modern day Branch Rickey.

Yeah, if they were worried about business, they would just insist on single payer. How are American companies supposed to compete in the world market when they have to pay for their workers' health insurance and foreign companies can just rely on universal healthcare?

For instance, I'm quite passionate about everyone in the country giving me $1.  So I've been cold calling everyone in the phone book and I must say, I don't think it's going to take off.

Rosa Parks, Lech Walesa, Martin Luther King... somehow I don't think any of them would have a problem with expanding our healthcare system.  I could be wrong, I guess.  Rosa Parks could have been a total biatch for all I know.

This is the same wishy washy thinking that Texas and Oklahoma, and other red states, to prevent gay couples in National Guard from accessing benefits to which they are entitled. Because giving people healthcare tramples everyone else's civil rights or religious freedom.

These people are going to be on the wrong side of history, just like the South in the Civil War.

I have a 'Christian' conservative friend on FB that would post homophobic "Protect marriage" crap every now and then, with the warning that giving gays rights to marry would destroy marriage and society as we know it. Then they passed gay marriage here in NY and he hasn't mentioned it. I guess he is too busy struggling to keep his marriage together now that those people can marry.

/I made sure to celebrate loudly on FB when it passed

Civil rights movement?  More like the movement I had this morning except theirs has more diarrhea.

They are operating on the core conservative principle: "We are 100% wrong, but if we keep trying maybe the rest of the world will become tired of our moronic, infantile s**t and just give in."
