    Yeah sure maybe one of these days, you guys are Independent in the ticker so I give you props. Props for giving both sides but no props in advocating socially and domestically liberal agendas.

    But I'm disappointed at Facebook and Twitter. Tell em that I said why didn't they attend that hearing on the committee? Why didn't they attend? Do they know what kind of business they run? Do they? Or should I set up another Twitter account? And the reasons were LAME!

    Next time, they better attend.

    Best political blog? Tooting your own horn are ya? CNN I wish I could get all my news from you, but fact of the matter is, you only show us what you want us to see.............I want to know everything, both sides, so I will continue to go where I have to. Don't think we only know what you tell us. Your ratings would go up if you would become a NEWS station again, not just another Liberal outlet.

    Good luck getting this posted...........too much censorship!

    Common sense and an objective viewing of recent history make it clear that many are supporting irrationally biased positions that can only continue to fail to meet their own best interests. The current positions stubbornly and arrogantly taken by the Republican Party clearly demonstrate an irresponsible and self-serving focus on placating and patronizing Special Interests and the influential, powerful and extremely wealthy few, their strong overt and covert supporters, while blatantly and boldly offering the majority only apathy, the costs and an abundance of deceptive rhetoric. For the average American to support these positions is to ignore the current problems and the drastic losses already incurred, all clearly documented by the real loss in personal economics, and to instead simply accept the manipulative subterfuge. Even for the wealthy, who would likely continue to gain over the short term, the long term would only result in failed programs necessarily defeated by attrition from greed, self-indulgence and dishonestly supported goals mathematically impossible to maintain (much like pyramid schemes). We have seen just this in several past cycles with Savings and Loans, Banks, Dot.Coms, Real Estate, Financial Industry,,, and to ignore history is to ask for 'more of the same'. What is really called for is for both Democrats and Republicans to responsibly and honestly seek bipartisan solutions that resolve the problems and that aren't just manipulative rationalizations to disguise a total concentration on their political ambitions. The best way for that to happen is for the voters to firmly reject what the politicians have become and to strongly deflect the manipulative efforts. That takes an objective and rational mentality that puts aside biases, prejudices, emotional attachments and preconceived ideas that are all just used to coerce people's loyalty. Good luck!

    "You libs are not only hypocritical but a joke...just like BHO....when the Dems try to do something similar it is great and when the reps. do it it is repugnant...."

    That's because banning earmarks for for-profit companies makes perfect sense, while including charities, colleges, governmental agencies/offices and other worthwhile not-for-profits makes NO SENSE. It's a GOP stunt to one-up the Dems' proposal. The reality is, the main underlying justification for banning the for-profit earmarks is because they create the impression that there's a quid pro quo taking place...whereas with the vast majority of not-for-profits, particularly charities under 503(c), they are prevented (or simply can't afford) to be making donations to political campaigns, etc. Grow up and learn the meaning of NUANCE. The GOP just came in swinging with their talking point hatchet because the Dems beat them to the punch.
