That is freaking great! Now all those clones can vote 6 or 8 times! This is a guaranteed Romney win. Too bad they don't allow voter ID checks... Laughing

But WHY did Obama let that beach erode? Can't that guy do ANYTHING right? What kind of president is he, anyway?

We can rest assured that Romney and Ryan will protect our beaches by moving them to the private sector and lowering taxes on them.

windoggie, you did an outstanding job of masquerading as our hateful character from the Great Northwest. I have to admit, I couldn't have done it nearly as well. You nailed it.

Anyone who wants to learn why the GOP actually opposes tax rate increases, as opposed to assigning reasons to the GOP, will find a good summary in Senate Minority Whip McConnell's interview by Steven Moore in the WSJ at
http://tinyurl.com/ao2pvyg .
It's an excellent summary of the mandate voters gave Republican congressmen, and why they should not cave.

One of the sad commentaries about the state of the GOP is the ongoing attacks against environmental regulation, and against William Ruckleshaus, the first head of the Environmental Protection Agency, and a moderate Republican. Ruckleshaus was the head guy when I started working for EPA as a student in 1972 right after the Clean Water Act was enacted. But he was also head of the FBI, and refused to fire Cox when Nixon tried to stop the Watergate investigation. An old friend sent me a summary, but I think that the full quote and the source are a good start at remembering what the Republican party used to be:

Quote:
It's not perfect by any means, and there are still those who violate both the letter and the spirit of environmental standards, but by and large our American corporations operate within a set of rules, norms, established by law, and they're not free in the sense there are no restraints on them. I think that's good. Freedom isn't the absence of restraint; it's a system of restraints that defines the context set by laws, by people representing the rest of us, within which an economic interest like a corporation can work. And that's as it should be.


http://www.open-spaces.com/article-v9n4-ruckelshaus.php

Of course Ruckleshaus' conclusion would not be unfamiliar to anyone who read John Stuart Mills' "On Liberty", as he argued for a broad freedom of association and speech, but not for actions, which cannot be as free as speech, and that the law must limit actions that hurt others.

The loss of critical thinking, rooted in the classics of literature and philosophy, is perhaps the crowning achievement of the current GOP.
