[quote]Conservatives were adamant about tearing down the Berlin wall, but now want their own[/quote] You understand the difference between a wall to keep people in and a wall to keep people out, don't you? On second thought, no you don't. ...

re: Schumer wants Shutdown - Topcat
I'm glad Trump cares more for the welfare of the country than media optics and is trying to bring some sanity to our immigration policy. Wouldn't it be nice if Democrats pursued policies that benefit the country rather than policies they perceive to benefit their party? ...

re: Government Shutdown Day 3 - (Cloture Vote at Noon) - Topcat
The threat by the Democrats to shut down the government reminds me of the scene in Blazing Saddles where the sheriff tells the crowd to stop or he'll shoot the . . . https://coxrare.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/abart.jpg Why would the party of small government cave to the threat of the party o...

re: The "I want the AG to enforce the law" meme - Topcat
That's weak. The Congress makes the law, not the AG. If you want weed to be legal or states to say whether it is legal, pressure your Congressmen. We don't want the AG deciding which laws to enforce or not to enforce--that leads to inconsistency in enforcement and the lawlessness of the Obama adm...

re: Senate confirms Katsas to federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. - Topcat
[quote]One Republican, Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana, voted against Mr. Katsas[/quote] How could we ever trust a guy who supported John Kerry for President to be a reliable conservative Senator--the guy is lacking any philosophical compass. Kennedy needs to be primaried first chance we get. ...

re: The Moore Campaign unveiled statements from key witnesses that completely bust the story - Topcat
Which would make a worse senator? A republican that 40 years ago dated teenagers, or a Democrat that currently subscribes to all of the thieving, lack of respect for personal property and personal responsibility, transfer paying, open borders schtick that the Democratic Party stands for? I don't ...

re: When are we going to demand Congress get off their dead arse and fix damn healthcare? - Topcat
[quote]have they ever fixed anything?[/quote] They fixed us good. Congress is tying itself in knots wrestling with tax reform, when the reason for the tax problem is Congress's spending habits. But nobody in Congress is addressing spending reform. We'd be far better picking 535 people at random...

Hooray for traditionally boring - Topcat
The below linked post and the links within it discuss something important. It used to behoove people to adopt ideal bourgeois behavior because there was no “safety-net” to pick up the pieces if you strayed. Now, those that adopt traditional middle-class norms are forced to pay for the poor choices...
