    Rand Paul and other new Republicans are not presenting a reformed Republican image, they’re reselling & repackaging the old one. http://mensnewsdaily.com/2011/02/27/rand-paul-is-a-rino/

    I have about had it with a certain person here that posted many slanderous comments on multiple sites claiming that many people posting here, and in other places are all me with different IP’s.

    It is time to end this now.

    I will flag my own post so it gets read by the admins here.

    I offer to give my home phone number to Open Congress to call me to verify who I am and where I live. I will be doing the same with Admins of other sites too.

    I suggest anyone else who wants to prove they are not me, after being accused of it by this person, do the same.

    Send me an email with a published OC email account and I will send my phone number.

    postime: If the unions get broke we are all toast.

    That may be what’s really needed to wake up the deadheads that vote GOTP republicans into office to do the bidding of the mega-corporations.

    President Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican, uttered these words on November 8, 1954:

    Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.

    The “tiny” splinter group is no more. This warning was not heeded, instead, it was embraced and has today, become the SOP of the GOTP and the mega-corporations.

    It’s entirely possible you’ve made a valid point. Personally I’m of the opinion a lot of folks really didn’t understand who and what they voted for…..The world wasn’t fixed fast enough for ‘em……But they’re about to find out that’s for sure….:)

    AND THE WINNER IS: THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. “Wisconsin Protesters Resist Police Orders to Leave The Capital” MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Union leaders and other protesters say they plan to make a peaceful stand when police begin clearing out the state Capitol nearly two weeks after demonstrators first occupied the building.

  • Sher1 02/27/2011 1:43pm

    Police have said they will arrest anyone who refuses to clear out at 4 p.m. Sunday.

    Protesters have been camping out in the building since Feb. 15 to speak out against a sweeping anti-union bill put forth by Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
