Thread: Ongoing US GOP Debacle Thread: Embracing Trumpism/White Supremacy

  1. #181
    Curious how much longer conservatives are going to be involved in the political process? Abortion's been an issue for 40+ years and a constitutional ban has never come close to passing, let alone being ratified. Can't change the Court if you can't win the White House. Another Dem President and the five youngest Justices will all be Dem appointees. Obamacare hasn't been repealed and won't be if the GOP doesn't win in 2016. Marriage equality is the law of the land and conservatives are powerless to stop it. 11M illegal aliens are never going to be deported. Guns are the only issue where the GOP hasn't been routed in the last few years. Conservatives can blame Obama all they want, but if they lose again in 2016 who do they blame after 8 years of Obama?

    They're trying to change the rules so their gerrymandered districts also elect the POTUS

    Texas has discovered that they can use the documentation excuse to deny rights not only to voters, but also to babies in the form of not issuing them birth certificates.

    The head of the NC GOP has compared Hillary to the KKK, twice. He's a moran.

    Randomly drop your finger on this map and you're guaranteed to land on a magnificent natural attraction, a rich historic site or an all-American recreation spot. That's the nature of a map that highlights places funded by the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), one of our country's top conservation tools for preserving national parks, forests, trails and recreation sites.

    Many more national gems are waiting to receive funding from the LWCF, but this won't happen if Congress continues on the path it's on. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is at risk of being dismantled this fall by a largely anti-conservation Congress that has shown little interest in supporting conservation programs on public lands.

    As the Republican base becomes both grayer and whiter, more homogenous and religious, fake Christianity will become an even more important wedge for conservatives to drive between people and their self-interest. We don’t care if a Republican politician throws grandma out of the nursing home or takes food stamps from poor people, so long as he weeps during Sunday service. The problem with America isn’t greed, out of control capitalism or the perversion of democracy with moneyed interests—it’s that we don’t go to church enough or we aren’t cruel enough to our gay nephew.

    The Fox News/GOP version of Christianity has already betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, and would do so again, just to get the matching set of spinning rims. Even though it’s a 21st century fabrication, it still has power and danger. Liberal Christians and anyone who values a secular republic need to stop pretending it’s been defeated.

    most of them are reasonable except no brown eggs.

    I'm glad they were able to solve the issue of too many food stamp holders buying organic foods and cage-free eggs.

    cost per dubious value

    I am not sure how practical that will be to police, but if someone else is paying for your food, they should be able to demand that it be healthy. Michelle would approve.

    I don't see the problem with that list at all.

    Interstate commerce ain't gonna regulate itself. Your Government knows best.

    Most are high in sugar or calories or "organic" which generally means nothing, especially for packages foods
