Blogline of the Day – If they had done their job correctly…

by Skip February 28, 2016

Just a reminder; If “mainstream Republicans” had fought as hard against Obama in 2008 and 2012, they wouldn’t have to worry about Trump now. Or if they did their jobs right when in office, they wouldn’t have created the vacuum that has their base questioning “and we vote for them…..why?”.  They have brought him (and […]

Back to why we should support DC Republi…..crap, I just can’t even being to keep this up anymore

by Skip February 18, 2016

“To a large degree Republicans want the courts to be the final arbiter of the major political questions of our time. That way they don’t have to get their hands dirty.” And then they wonder why we hate them – most of it is because they refuse to do their jobs the way they should. […]
