STrange times indeed


I would love to be back in the states and attending Chamber meetings....this is by far the strangest thing I think I have ever read:

To The Right Of The Chamber???

Seriously, if yo find yourself sitting to the right of the Chamber of Commerce you need to seriously do some soul searching.

10 years ago you could not get to the right of the Chamber of Commerce....the next stop to the right of the Chamber of Commerce was an insane asylum....that stop is now a GOP Seat in the House of Representatives. If the Chamber turns its back on the GOP the GOP will not only cease to be a national party it will also cease being a regional party. The damage that is being done to this nation by the seizing of the GOP by people who 30 years ago wouldn't have been allowed a seat at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast is staggering....these nuts have driven so many moderates and even staunch conservatives away and into the arms of the Democrats that the Dems don't even know what to do with it....it is amazing to see the GOP destroy itself in such a fashion but the ramifications of this nation becoming, in essence, a one party system with one party ideas and one party agendas is scary as hell. If you on the right of the Chamber of Commerce seek help immediately.....before it is too late....

The damage being done to to this country by people that would have rightfully(they should be called that today) been called communists fifty years ago is what is amazing to behold and endure.

There’s nothing more important for financial stability than getting the debt ceiling raised and putting our nation on a prudent financial path, a message we have been delivering to lawmakers for weeks,” said Rob Nichols, president of the Financial Services Forum, which has joined with the chamber and the National Association of Manufacturers to press the issue.


How, exactly, is this even remotely true?

They have destroyed the GOP as a national party...and it is going to get worse before it gets better, leaving the Democrats free reign to do all sorts of stupid shite.

Do you seriously think Barrack Obama would have been reelected...let alone elected the first time around, if the wing of the GOP that is the tea party now hadn't already pushed the party so far to the right that a significant number of Americans could not in good conscience vote for McCain or Romney? The damage that this faction of the GOP has done to this nation can't be measured....these people are the Jerry Reubens and the Abby Hoffmans of the GOP with the significant difference that they are being elected to office. If you think Obama has been a dismal failure (I voted for him twice and think this) just wait until the tea baggers openly take credit for shutting down the government AND for forcing the US into default and see what happens when the DEMS have control of both houses and the whitehouse.....What damage? They have turned this nation's political system, nationally, from a bad 2 party system to a single party system...

I think it already is too late. Why? Because nobody is going to do anything about it. Nobody can. And because of that, nobody cares anymore.

We sit here and bitch about it here every day, but name one thing you can do to affect the nonsense?

The media is no longer the "guardian of the people." They've chosen a side. They aren't going to do anything about it.

Yeah, and that's why there was the largest shift in political power in the history of the United States in 2010. But you're right, fiscal responsibility is for the "crazies".

What the frick are you talking about? McCain and Romney are hardly tea party candidates. They are the establishment GOP.

Oh, i see. You are a liberal idiot trying to tell Conservatives what's best for the party. Ok :patshead:

Economic uncertainty is killing hiring....if you own a business today who trades with the federal Government....directly or indirectly, and there ain't many who don't, you don't know today if your gonna be paid for goods and services already provided.....if your invoicing a federal agency today for goods or services provided this or last month (or like many small businesses a couple of months ago, bless their souls) right now it looks like you won't be paid for those goods or services....as of right now you are billing a customer who you know does not have the ability to pay you....and that is not supposed to make you think twice before expanding your business???? The debt ceiling has to be raised (or more appropriately eliminated altogether) so we can avoid becoming deadbeats as a nation. Cut spending all you want, hell eliminate it altogether if you have the political capital to do so...make your case....but do not refuse to pay your bills over political ideology....that is criminal...and very destructive....

That's a libertarian principle not a republican one. The republicans spend at least as much as the democrats if not more.

that seems like a huge red flag of a terrible symptom

saying/thinking something like this should make you go, " shite...is this real life?" and realize the system has to change dramatically

quote:

lesson learned: don't trust the government

hopefully they learn this and the government, after it contracts, has trouble expanding itself next time

if we cut our spending, we will be able to pay for the debt ceiling

i'm not pro-default. i'm pro-cut

if they were a coherent movement i'd agree but the reality is some tea party factions are not good for the country while others are actual tea party small government groups.

yes they are...but in order to secure the nomination they had to pander to the tea baggers...even before they were formed and co-opted by the Koch brothers...and the American people, in numbers large enough to make a difference, turned to Obama.....McCain not so much but there is no way that Obama gets re-elected IF it had not been for the tea baggers. Hell for several months during the primary season we saw one nut case after another, people who would have never been considered viable candidates, become front runners in the GOP because they were willing to say all sorts of crazy shite to attract the worst elements of the right. The one thing the Tea Party has done for certain is assured the re-election of Barrack Obama.....and unless something happens the election of Hillary Clinton to the whitehouse....now that is something that a conservative ought to be proud of.....

they like to paint with a broad brush, I guess it's kinda like when people say that all Muslims want to kill all non-Muslims.
