What you say about the Democrapheads as applied to Dem politicians, journalists, college professors, and business people is true. I don't believe that is necessarily true of the regular citizen who is a Dem. There were millions of Reagan Democrats. How else could he have won two landslide general elections for president? Reagan even won all New England states and California. I have heard the reason why Romney lost was he failed to win over Reagan Democrats, who stayed home and didn't vote. (Personally, I don't think it was that simple. Romney beat Obama by 20 percentage points among Whites, but minorities voted so overwhelmingly for Obama that his deficit among Whites was overcome.
One not well known fact is that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican.

Free Fire Zone- Sanctions on Israel?

There are MANY MANY Gentiles, me included, who stand with Israel.
I have been saying for several years that the US is becoming more and more like Maoist China. Examples: the allowance of only "approved" speech and thought (a.k.a. political correctness). Say or think something unapproved, or even be accused of such, one will lose one's livelihood (e.g. the former CEO of Mozilla). Early in the 2012 presidential election campaign, people were encouraged to go to a website to report people who are spreading "untruths" about the Obama administration. (That went over like a lead balloon and stopped being spoken of. I chose to stop contributing to the mainstream media in receiving revenue years ago. I believe others have done the same with the continued shrinking audience of the mainstream media.

Emanuel, Drooling Over Death

To Utopian statists like the Emanuel brothers and the modern Democrat Party, the individual only matters in what one contributes to the collective. The individual's happiness, what one contributes to the happiness of one's loved ones, one's personal ambitions, etc. are all irrelevant to them. All they care about is that the machine of society run smoothly. Read about Plato's Republic, Hobbe's Leviathan, More's Utopia, Marx's Worker's Paradise, etc. This is how they think. Each of us is just another bovine in the herd. If one of us dies and when we die is of no consequence. We don't matter. Those "idealistic societies" are only idealistic in the minds of the rulers. To everyone else, life is empty and meaningless.
Just think of the waste that is likely in the national government. Congress and the president are quick to turn to raise taxes and DON'T EVEN TRY to find waste, even thought the CBO estimates there is about $200B/year in waste and duplication in the national government. If Congress and the president were honest and honorable, they would try to find and cut the waste out of the national government that the CBO estimates is there before even considering raising our taxes.

Gruber Flap Reopens Not-So-Old Wounds

The web site is the least of Obamacare's problems. The worst parts are the parts that get little attention, like the Independent Payment Advisory Board which effectively has the power to dictate what can and cannot be treated. Or the insurance company bailouts and the redistribution of money among insurance companies from the more profitable to less profitable. That is going to be a disaster. The parts of Obamacare that received the most attention like the device tax, website, or work week are the more minor problems of the law. Because they are the more minor problems are probably why they are the ones being discussed, with the complicit media and the gutless opposition party.

I never understood the perception that Obama is a nice person and speaks well. If one is not a Leftist, one would feel under attack every time he opens his mouth. Listen to some Ronald Reagan speeches and then try to tell me that Obama is a good speaker.
While I do believe Obama and the Dems have done a terrible job, the Republicans have allowed Obama and the Dems to do a terrible job, which mean the Repubs have done a terrible job too. I am 52 years old and I see the pendulum swing between Repubs and Dems constantly. Right now it favors Repubs. Just wait, fickle America will swing back to Dems. FDR gave a speech where he mentioned that Leftists and radical Leftists are out of power more often than not. He advocated putting structures in place to solidify their rule even when not in power. That is what the bureaucracy and the Dem stacked courts are.
