sebekm, Nor will I be silent! Why was this hidded my the "Media":
Many lost causes have had 'dead-enders' amongst them. I am sorry for this bit of news you guys, but like it or not Conservatives have got to change in several ways if they are to survive. An embracement of a stronger TEa Party like
mindset will result in a crash and burn in 2016 and mid-year elections. The conservative snake oil as it bottled today is no longer selling.
Adapt or kiss the baby.
Thanks Sebe. However, IMHO, as long as Conservatives embrace: NO ABORTIONS for women, are viewed as oblivious to the other 47% of Americans, continue their Anti-Gay stance, and also not find a way to incorporate the ever growing mass of minorities: single moms, latinos, blacks etc. then they are doomed politically, no matter their adherence to fiscal conservatism.
And...I really do not know how they can do it without alienating their hard core constituents beginning with the Tea Party. For too long Conservatives have been the party of 'subtraction.' I do not think they know HOW to comprehend 'addition'.
"I am not alone and I won't be silent."
Sebe. I am not suggesting true Independents pack it in. I am tho, saying that the shrillness,virulendnce, no body gets in unless they look and act like us, NEEDS silencing. And I will only also include those "Independents" who ENDORSE this bygone way of thinking of America.
"This is no longer that 1930's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's or 90's. Time has changed, and whether or not you like it, it has. This is a "younger generation" who no longer looks at a person's skin color to see whether or not he or she is fit to hold a political office, or qualified to for a certain employment position. The right extreme conservative views rest with the "older generation". I strongly believe that this Republican Party will eventually fizzle away just like the Tea Party, and America would no longer have to deal with extreme conservative views that this past election has succumb to."
I don't agree with taking personal attacks solely for their very won personal views. I spoke on that in an earlier blog. As mature adults, we should be able to agree to disagree. Personally, I don't agree with the name calling simply because you don't agree with another person's views. However; I do agree with a lot of the postings of this blogger you are referring to. But this is America, and again, whether you like it or not, everyone has the right to express their own opinion.
Really Sebe?! Where do you place people on the right such as Ann Coulter who refers to Dems as "treasonous", Glenn Beck, Shawn Hannity and the right wing granddaddy of hate: The ever condeming Rush Limbaugh and the veritable host of other right wing 'talk' radio hosts. You can find very few Left wing hate mongers in their league. They preach it,hate, to the masses. We have a a few lunies but none quite so virulent as these people noted above who make millions of dollars handing out their tripe.
But the real question I guess, is what heretofore VALUE are conservatives gonna now forsake to get back in the game? I tell ya, if they would endorse legalizing and taxing Pot, it would be kinda in line with their 'paying down the deficit' mantra that accompanies their extreme stances on other social issues. But...I just don't think they will do that. They are gonna have to sell out one of their other conservative 'values' to retain relevancy.
Doing this at half-time of SC-Ark. Will be back.
Brother Jimmy, Bill Maher, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Al Sharpton and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz are in the league that you put the aforementioned conservatives in; however they are even worse and the left wing media allows it see Maher here:
And Brother Jimmy here’s Megyn Kelly from America Live, presenting liberal bias against Freedom Works and the Tea Party. I realize you are a busy man with responsibilities to take care of so that’s why I’m presenting research that you probably don’t have the time to do. Please watch this.
And now here’s Ed a must see of hatred:
The left is more intolerant than conservatives. Conservatives espouse principles from our Founders in general. However I agree they need to address their approach and not alienate people who have been drinking the leviathan kool-aid most of their lives!
Yes, Funk. How Bout Our Veterans!!
As noted to Sebe on another blog...ain't y'all a little tired of the politics? I am. There is always another election cycle unless the Mayans are right. So yall save your ammo til the next go round. Lord willin' I hopefully will be here to be kicked around somemore. :)
Yep Sebe...I 'borrowed' those: kick around anymore... from tricky dick. We are showin our age, buddy.
Thanks for the kind words also, Sebe. But that Mayan thing is in a countdown mode! ;) We may be in big trouble, hoss.
I want to add my two cents worth to this blog.
Good points have been made from some of us on the left as well as some of us on the right.
It is important that we continue to have opposing views.
A good debater can take either side of a particular issue and make good points.
I only recognize a couple of the names of talk radio and television because I refuse to listen to any of them from any side.
I was taught from an early age to read the newspaper and particularly the editorial page.
Whether you follow Coulter, Buchanan, Will, Krauthammer, or my favorite Cal Thomas when a syndicated columnist puts something in print it is valid and you can bank on it being true.
Sadly our print media is dying on the vine.
Mediums such as this site are becoming the norm.
Loose lips sink ships.
Foul mouths usually reflect lack of understanding and reasoning.
The Mayan thing is a concern to me.
I don't see how God can be as pleased with the world today as at times in the past.
I don't fully understand the "thing about Israel"
I'd like to know more.
We might just be close to the end.
I'm not saying we are because I don't know.
Jimmy Mack the issue of marijuana is of utmost concern to me also.
I am working on a piece on that subject and when I launch it I hope you will join me in a discussion on the merits of the consideration of legalization.
Ok TOT. It makes sense to me. Prohibition failed and we are wasting billion of money fighting the already lost war on drugs. I say: legalize it, tax it and educate people.
