xria: I wonder if Republicans have ever considered the "Loudness Wars" and how you can analogize it to political rhetoric. If your dials are constantly stuck on 11, everyone except the true believers will tune you out when there actually is bad laws/policies made by Democrats.

/I guess you could go with the boy who cried Wolf as well


I think it is partially why they are trying to sabotage everything as much as possible, and to kill the ACA before it kicks in.

I can tell you, my personal departure from the GOP is kind of due to that.  When Clinton was elected, I bought into a lot of the "liberal big spender who will destroy the Economy and wreck the country" BS.  8 years later, the deficit was under control, and the economy was in pretty good shape.

The rhetoric didn't pan out at all.

Gaddiel: thornhill: FTFA:

"That's it, the way to cure the incredible ineffectiveness and dysfunction of both parties in Washington - we move the Capitol to Nebraska where they can experience family, conservative values, living within a budget, and pulling together, not pulling apart," Sasse said in a new campaign ad.

Shouldn't these free market loving Republicans be calling to move the Capitol to NYC to see how a city is able to have a larger GDP than all but two states?

I was skeptical at first but according to Wikipedia you're right.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_GDP
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_GDP

Two things stand out though. First, how the hell is the gdp of NYC larger than that of New York State?
Second, I feel embarrassed that Tokyo has Manhattan beat by so much. We really need to try and catch up, or bomb them again. Or both!


I bet they're including Newark's GDP -- treating it as one large metro area.

Tokyo isn't really a city -- there's the city, and then there is the Prefecture. But when people refer to "Tokyo," what the mean is the metropolitan area that 35 million live in. That's why the GDP is so high.

keylock71: A hyperbolic Republican completely ignorant of the history of his own country?

The fark you say...


Without ignorance, the Republican party dissolves.

nmrsnr: Grand_Moff_Joseph: surely, the ACA has to worse than

the Indian Removal Act of 1830.

the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

the Espionage Act of 1917.

I'd like to add the Volstead Act of 1919.

"Of course we need to repeal it but we also need to tell people what we'll do next. We need to show Americans that we're the party of conservative solutions. That's the only way win."

He then proceeded to offer no proposals of what he wants to do next.


Blah blah tax cuts to pharmacorps, tort reform, blah blah.

unamused: Grand_Moff_Joseph: the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

Came here for this, leaving satisfied.



Came for this, too. Of course, most anti-immigrant state bills are just updates of that act.

"I think that they, Nebraska work-a-day folks, think that we're on the precipice of national decline and they don't think Washington gets it at all," Sasse said according to the Times.

I am a native-born, dyed-in-the-wool Midwestern libertarian-conservative bumpkin from a coal-mining town surrounded by a hundred miles of cornstalks on every side, but even I do not think that Washington should turn to Midwestern bumpkins for guidance. If Nebraska work-a-day folks think America Is Over (tm) and everyone else disagrees, maybe it's because they're wrong?

/ 15% raise this year. America is going pretty OK for me, actually.

NeverDrunk23: When no one was looking, Obamacare took 40 cakes.
It took 40 cakes.
That's as many as four 10s.
And that's terrible


The cake is a lie.

No one's mentioned Prohibition?


I'm sure someone has mentioned it, but I don't have time to read the whole thread. The Volstead Act was the real name of the legislation that kicked off Prohibition.
