Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

Sorry to upset you bean, but I was juxtaposing his comments with that of WH spokesman who said they are morally justified to kill them with drones based on ISIS tactics against others.

You don't agree with Obama?

It looks like we have three sides to this argument. And then the Senate releases a report in which they never interviewed any of the accused?

What a mess. The Senate claimed that all they were informed about was "tummy taps?"

I'm not in anybody's debt.

Re: “Ron and the recount

I was waiting in line to vote and the person ahead of me was trying to use his Sonoran driver's license as ID. The registrar patiently explained that it wasn't permissible. Since he didn't speak English, it took a while to sink in. He finally resolved to go to the " Democrat office" to get it straightened out. This wasn't the McSally/Barber district, ( it is the gerrymandered one next to it) . I have no idea if the " office" got him his ID.

Re: “Grijalva on CROmnibus: GOP Is "Using a Potential Crisis With the Federal Government To Hurt Working Families"

Raul doesn't want all that $ going to Wall Street but he doesn't mind giving it to the Muslim Brotherhood or the Taliban like what he and a few other liberal Demos did back a few yrs. ago. Millions of $ to the Taliban for med. supplies to heal their wounded jihadists so that they could get back out on the battlefield to kill our soldiers. Traitorous POS!

Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

Rat,

Where were you in 2007? 2005? Or any other year McCain has talked about torture? McCain is only reiterating the same things he said while running for president and has said about torture his whole career.

You should not be typing about things you obviously know so little about.

Here are a few examples (by the way google makes it very easy to search for archive news article, you can avoid looking stupid in the future):

“I want to tell you. Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney all think it is O.K [torture] They have one thing in common. They don’t understand the military and the culture of this nation. If they did, they could never condone such behavior.” (McCain in 2007)

“You incline someone’s head and stuff a rag in their mouth and pour water and give one the total sensation of drowning, it was invented in the Spanish inquisition and was used by Pol Pot. It is now being used on Burmese monks by this military junta in Burma. I know how evil this enemy is, but this is really fundamentally about what kind of nation the United States of America is.” (McCain 2007)

In 2005 he lead the process of passing legislation through the senate to BAN torture, signed into law by Bush. The Bush administration was not happy with this at all and eventually secured an exemption for the CIA, which pissed off McCain. (A rift which reverberated throughout the Republican party during the subsequent nomination process)

You owe Senator McCain an apology.

Maybe they are getting paid to protest so that would be their job.

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

This is what happens when people become disengaged and are too confused to go to the polls anymore. The right-wing elements keep going at it as if it were a game of checkers. David keep exposing what is happening, many of us appreciate the news from your point of view.

Re: “Is Congress Now Incapabable of Handling Immigration Reform?

Every news source that I can find says the the POTUS did not sign an EO.

Can we get a final word on that before we explore what may/may not have been done to the USC?

Progressive Caucus? I thought you were in the Black Congressional Caucus, or the Hispanic American Caucus.

WTH happened to representing all Americans Raul? Not just your grab and run border crossers.

Tell us about jobs Grijalva...because you can't show us squat.

Your protesters do not have jobs or they would have been at work. This just might be your fault.

Arizona voters weren't bothered much by the lawless Republican legislature. They gave their approval by re-electing them and keeping the Republican majority. People are satisfied with the way things are in Arizona. Sigh.

...and here I thought it was the turbins and the masks over their faces that really distinguished them.

The Senate knew about this John. You are in the Senate.

Why didn't you speak up then? Trying to protect Americans, or a career?

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

Doggone it, David, there you go again. Here I am trying to feel the Christmas Spirit, and you bring up the condition of the logic of those who run our fair state. The voters said do this. The Leg. majority said we would rather give tax cuts to corporations than do what the voters said. The Leg said we can't follow what the voters said because we have reduced our revenues by giving tax cuts to corporations. The Leg. is unwilling to admit that all those tax cuts have hurt our state and have not yielded any returns in terms of new jobs and new revenues from wage-earning taxpayers. The public did not give us very many new members of the legislature. The courts are our only chance to restore these wrongs. The rule of law is very critical if we are to remain truly American. This has nothing to do with Pelosi, Obama, or anyone else when it is finally decided. FIX ARIZONA and fix our public schools! MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HANNUKAH!

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

We just watched a man choked, tackled and ultimately died for selling loosies in NYC. Cigs are so valuable because of the greedy govt tax on them.

Just like the IRS, govt hates competition.

None of you whined that "it's for the children" as you stole and misused Deseg money to expand hiring, bloat administration, and improve benefit packages.


You made your bed...lie in it.
