    Only a Paulbot would say that calling Rand Paul an isolationist is a “declarative statement”.

    LOL

  2. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m reserving judgment on NYC but I’m starting to lean towards Paulbot. It is a truly terrible accusation to level so I need more evidence.

  3. jason says:

    ” I do believe, also, that one person challenging the status quo will make for a healthier debate,”

    Horsecrap.

    Calling for the extermination of, say, Eskimos, might challenge the status quo but is not a “healthy debate”.

    Rand Paul’s isolationism and head in the sand approach to foreign policy might “challenge the status quo” but is hardly healthy.

    Until Rand Paul is willing to acknowledge that we have vital interests around the world that we need to protect, and that we have alliances we need to maintain, and that having a strong defense is key to our safety he won’t be a viable candidate. Ron Paul lost 150/150 primaries and caucuses largely because of his extreme foreign policy views, and Rand Paul has done little to differentiate himself from his father, if anything.

    I understand that “let’s close our bases and spend the money here” and “let’s cut foreign aid” and “let’s avoid wars”, etc. have a strong demagogic appeal, but that doesn’t mean its good policy.

    NYC – I believe that Rand Paul supports ending all foreign aid. All. I do not know if he supports his father’s position of closing all overseas bases and essentially bringing all military personnel back to th US. All. I have not declared you a Paulbot but I have also noted that you only seem to be practicing boosterism (how about that word?!) for him as a candidate. Why?

    NYCmike (Bronxie) says:
    January 23, 2013 at 3:04 pm
    At this point, he is one of the few people who have been pointing out that this is a Constitutional Republic, that powers are shared across the 3 branches, he is calling out Obama in all of the correct places, and not cowering in fear that something he might say will screw up his chance to be President, but also choosing his words wisely, because he is aware of how the media can distort. What is not to like about him? Personally, I hope he does NOT run for President, but stays in the Senate and is considered to be one of the leaders of that body. That would be a good thing, because, as the video shows, he does not abide by that ridiculous idea of being so gracious towards lackeys like Hillary Rodham f’n Clinton!

  5. Bitterlaw says:

    Exterminate Eskimos? Who would make the pies?

  6. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “and Rand Paul has done little to differentiate himself from his father, if anything.”

    -One more reason for my boosterism, Bitter! You know this is cr*p, tarring one man’s name with the sins of his father! Typical liberal hack thing that is done all the time on MSNBC. Find the link at Hotair, which allahpundit notes, where Ron Paul would never have asked about Hillary and her actions in regards to Benghazi, he would have gone off on a tangent asking why we were there in the first place, which Rand DID NOT do!! If lil ‘jason Bollings would look a little harder, he might inform his brain, or maybe his brain will say “stand up, you big turd, so I can think!”

  7. HHR Polling Report says:

    What is with this 2014 and 2016 polling? We’re focused on 2013. I’m sure Paladin will come out of hiding soon enough…

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – I am just watching the evidence as it comes in. I have not declared any new Paulbots (although Jul is damn close, despite him claims of being a hawk and pro-Israel).

  9. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Until Rand Paul is willing to acknowledge that we have vital interests around the world that we need to protect, and that we have alliances we need to maintain, and that having a strong defense is key to our safety he won’t be a viable candidate.

    -Any candidate worth being President, in a Republican primary, better know how to bring up these questions to elicit some answers from Rand Paul. I would expect it to happen, so we will then find out what he thinks. Until then, I reserve judgment, other than that he would be better than Obama, Hillary, Biden, or any other Democrat, as would Rubio, Ryan, Ron Johnson, Scott Walker, Martinez, etc.

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    Oh, no. NYC went with “lil jason.” The battle between the South American street urchin and the Bronx Basher could be epic.

  11. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “South American street urchin”

    -Did I verbally attack a minority….how soon until I am branded a racist as well??!!

  12. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “I have not declared any new Paulbots”

    -As if, who made you Governor….dang it!

  13. Bitterlaw says:

    You can fight with a street urchin. You just can’t call them one.

  14. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – You are giving aid and comfort to Bunu. That is a dangerous strategy.

  15. Brandon says:

    Good question.

  16. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Bitterlaw says:
    January 23, 2013 at 3:30 pm
    NYC – You are giving aid and comfort to Bunu. That is a dangerous strategy.

    -In WWII, we fought alongside Stalin and the Russians, because the greater danger was Hitler.

    Bunu and the Paul-tards are stupid, they considered Romney the same as Obama. I don’t think that Hillary, Cuomo, or any Democrat will be better than ANY Republican.

  17. jason says:

    The NYC comment that we are tarring Rand Paul with the same brush is hilarious.

    Please tell me where Rand Paul has been critical of his father’s whacko views?

    Hugh Hewitt:

    “Rand Paul seems to have more in common with his father regarding some foreign policy elements than I had originally thought, especially when it comes to discerning the motives of Al-Qaeda. What caught my attention, though, was when Hugh asked Paul directly if he felt that our support for Israel triggered some of these attacks and would he argue that we should reduce our support for Israel based on that premise. Paul simply replied that Al-Qaeda says that it’s part of their justification and that we should read their writings and doesn’t go so far as to answer the second half of that question. That’s a little bothersome to say the least.”

    Basically, Rand Paul is using Al Qaeda as his argument to cut aid to Israel, a la “chickens come home to roost” by Rev. Wright.

  18. jason says:

    I don’t mind the lil jason. Morons like Rockefeller Troll and BP Scottsdale called me that too, NYC is in good company.

  19. azguy says:

    49ers and Ravens, just like I predicted.

  20. Brandon says:

    Romney with 350 EV’s, just like you predicted.

  21. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    I’m still waiting for my “lesson” from azguy

  22. jason says:

    The problem with Bunu and NYC is that in the age of the Internet, you can’t hide from your comments.

    ” Sen. Rand Paul often shies away from deep foreign policy discussions. It’s a smart move, since his father’s toxic positions stunted his own rise in the GOP. But in an interview with Politico, Rand praised the elder Paul’s radical speech on Sunday, which promoted the “blowback” theory, blasted “neocons,” and suggested that the U.S. invited the 9/11 attacks:

    The younger Paul shares his father’s foreign policy broadly, and he praised him especially Sunday for talking about the convent “blowback” – the concept that U.S. meddling overseas can lead to terrorist attacks.

    “Had he not talked about blowback I don’t know anyone ever would have,” he said. The younger Paul boasted in the interview that he received standing ovations from the packed crowd, some of whom were chanting “Paul 2016.”

    Rand’s cautiousness when it comes to discussing his foreign policy positions has helped his political ascent, but nobody should doubt that he shares many of his father’s views. His praise of Ron Paul’s “blowback” comments above is enough to raise alarms with Republicans.

  23. jason says:

    The idea that “we invited” people to fly planes full of innocent people into buildings full of innocent people is one of the sickest canards promoted by Paulbots.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t think it is the real azguy. he is probably preparing for the riots that will follow the Super Bowl no matter who wins. It’s what “they” do.

  25. Michael (Capito for Senate) says:

    Good afternoon

  26. Little Mikey says:

    i’m here guys!

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    If Rand says, “My dad is a lunatic and supports terrorists. I absolutely reject that and my first action as President would be to order a drone to follow dad around 24 hours a day,” I might listen to him.

  28. Mr. Roboto says:

    BRB, have to get on the bus after detention!

  29. jason says:

    Ok I am tired of proving NYC wrong on Rand Paul’s views.

    From now on I will give his posts pushing Rand Paul the same treatment as I give Bunu’s.

    Next topic:

    Women in Combat

    I will sponsor lisab

  30. jason says:

    One argument against having women in combat is that if for example the Taliban capture one and start torturing her, they will be able to kill a lot of “heroes” trying to save her.

    Discuss.

  31. Bitterlaw says:

    I will sponsor Tina. She is older but battle-tested. On the other hand, even if lisab was killed, I really don’t think she would stop fighting.

  32. Michael (Capito for Senate) says:

    Now the question is, who is Mr. Roboto?

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    It depends on the woman. I think lisab would drive them insane and they would surrender.

  34. Little Mikey says:

    “Now the question is, who is Mr. Roboto?”

    we are you dummy!

  35. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Roboto is Kilroy. Do today’s teens listen to anything recorded before Justin Bieber?

  36. jason says:

    ‘jason Bollings ”

    I declared my support for Cuccinelli long ago and said Bolling was an a-hole for thinking of running third party.

    So GFY.

  37. Little Mikey says:

    I love Justin Beiber!

    btw guys i’m donating to Capito today

  38. jason says:

    I will sponsor SusyQue too.

    She will walk into a Taliban camp alone and say “Jesus is with me, who can be against me?”

    I bet the Taliban panic.

  39. Mr. Roboto says:

    I’m thinking of changing my handle later!

    Bolling for Governor!

  40. W. PA Observer says:

    I’ll care about PPP’s Minnesota gov polls in about a year and a half. Yawn.

    Didn’t they have Dayton doing far better than he actually did in 2010? I seem to recall the GOP surge in Minnesota and Emmer making the race a close run thing being one of the surprises of that election.

  41. jason says:

    Yeah, Dayton won by a whisker. He is an awful candidate.

    He can be beat.

  42. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    The idea that “we invited” people to fly planes full of innocent people into buildings full of innocent people is one of the sickest canards promoted by Paulbots.

    -And should be easily rebutted by the people who will seek the Republican nomination. Unfortunately, the so-called leaders of this party have not done that very effectively, leaving people like me to try to explain the problem with that outlook to my nephew and his friends, as well as other adult friends. I don’t think people are evil who think that, I think they are wrong. The difference between them and the Democrats is that the Dems have no priciples whatsoever, so they will surrender at the slightest hint of trouble. I don’t believe Rand Paul would do anything to undercut the military like a Durbin, Reid, or Kerry DID in the past decade.

  43. jason says:

    With all precincts reporting, here’s where we stand: Democrat Mark Dayton has 919,238 votes compared to Republican Tom Emmer’s 910,382 votes.

  44. W. PA Observer says:

    45- Yikes, that’s a close one. Yeah- knowing that Dayton was considered a terrible senator and requires medication to function psychologically- I believe he’s more vulnerable than PPP suggests here.

  45. GF says:

    44- And once again, proof that the sole purpose of the “Independence Party” in Minnestoa is to elect Democrats, even with a tiny plurality of the vote. They truly serve no other function. Indeed, Dayton and Franken owe their seats to them.

    Good afternoon, all; just dropping by for a moment. BTW, Bitter, will you be glued to the upcoming Mercedes Superbowl ad? I read that Ms. Upton will feature in it.

  46. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    And do me a favor, stop lumping me in with groups who worship Ron paul or mo-mo’s like Rocky and whomever else. I am an individual, I don’t lump you in with other schmucks, return the respect, will you please. I should have refrained from the lil’ jason name (although I think the Bollings quip is appropriate, considering you would want a Dem over Rand Paul, like Bollings must want McAuliffe to win if he stays in).
    GFY!

    (Good for You!)

  47. Bitterlaw says:

    GF – I guess I have to watch the game now.

  48. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t think that people who believe 9/11 was an inside job are wrong. I think they are vicious, Anti-American morons. Some may be evil.

  49. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Good afternoon, all; just dropping by for a moment. BTW, Bitter, will you be glued to the upcoming Mercedes Superbowl ad? I read that Ms. Upton will feature in it.

    -Saw part of the ad, or maybe it’s a prequel ad, on The DanzaTap. Lots of bubbles, and short shorts….nice!

  50. jason says:

    ” I don’t believe Rand Paul would do anything to undercut the military like a Durbin, Reid, or Kerry DID in the past decade.”

    Right, he must be lying when he says he will.

  51. Bitterlaw says:

    Kate Upton brings us closer together.

  52. Little Mikey says:

    “Kate Upton brings us closer together.”

    not me, that’s icky

  53. jason says:

    ” I don’t lump you in with other schmucks, return the respect, will you please.’

    Sorry, no free lunch here.

    If it looks like a Paulbot and quacks like a Paulbot it’s a Paulbot.

  54. Michael (Capito for Senate) says:

    Lol Mikey I am so glad your over the age of 18 and can donate, because I am not 18 yet

  55. jason says:

    ” considering you would want a Dem over Rand Paul,”

    What I said was I could not support someone with Rand Paul’s foreign policy views.

    I hate the Clintons, but I don’t think they have unilateral disarmament mentality against our foes and I think they understand the U.S. has a role to play in the world. Clinton missed the boat on Bin Laden, but he did intervene in Somalia, Haiti and Serbia for example.

    This not to say the Dems don’t have their own isolationist “Rand Pauls” too, just as dangerous. They are a dime a dozen in the Democratic party.

  56. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Right, he must be lying when he says he will.

    -You don’t know the difference between someone saying they will CUT defense spending, as opposed to Senators who UNDERCUT an ongoing mission?

  57. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    but he did intervene in Somalia, Haiti and Serbia for example

    -None of those were slam-dunk interventions, and they were done more to please interest groups than to pursue American interests. There are also plenty of reasons why we should not have gone into any of those countries.

    If it looks like a Paulbot and quacks like a Paulbot it’s a Paulbot.

    -Yup, just follow the recipe as defined by Saul Alinsky/MSNBC/CNN. Typical bully tactic, maybe you should read comment #4 on this thread again.
    I wonder who you think would be better as Minority Leader in the Senate, Rand Paul or Mitch McConnell?

  59. W. PA Observer says:

    59- I don’t know- I think making an effort to stop ethnic cleansing in the backyard of European nations where we had enormous military presence still at the time, was a good decision for U.S policy abroad. At a certain level- I agree that civil wars (particularly if both combatants share similar flaws) are best settled by the domestic factions- but in the Balkans, it’s always a mess.

  60. W. PA Observer says:

    Though not intervening in Rwanda also made it look as if the Clinton foreign policy posture was almost completely arbitrary.

  61. Emerica says:

    “From now on I will give his posts pushing Rand Paul the same treatment as I give Bunu’s.”

    Ya right. Every time I come here I read over the last few threads only to see you talking about Rand Paul the entire time.

    And Rand is a non-interventionist.

  62. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “If it looks like a Paulbot and quacks like a Paulbot it’s a Paulbot.”

    “Romney’s really rich, he must be for the rich, he only cares about the rich.”

    -Maybe Obama should hire you for the next campaign, you think the same way. Lump people in groups, to make it harder to explain themselves, because they will have to explain what others in that group have said, even though those opinions are not their own.

  63. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Emerica,

    Rand Paul will not be President, especially when a-holes like you won’t support the person who will defeat him, fair and square, in any dang primary. You do him a disservice with your constant (8 years and running) BS!

  64. Emerica says:

    #65

    Bla bla blabiddy bla

    Is that what you said?

  65. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    “Bla bla blabiddy bla

    Is that what you said?”

    what great maturity for a terrorist sympathizer

  66. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Bla bla blabiddy bla

    -That might be the most coherent thing you have ever said, and it was the first time you did ot mention Ron or Rand Paul.

    BRAVO!!

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    And Rand is a non-interventionist.

    Translation – isolationist.

  68. Bitterlaw says:

    Bunu is attacking NYC? We will add that to the “Non-Paulbot” evidence pile.

  69. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “We will add that to the “Non-Paulbot” evidence pile”

    -Add “this” too, will you please, Shyster?

  70. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu was 9/11 an inside job?

    did the holocaust happen?

    do you still live in your mom’s basement?

  71. Bitterlaw says:

    Bunu fascinates me. NYC is willing to at least give Rand Paul an evaluation based upon his statements and interviews. Of course, the idea that NYC won’t just accept Bunu’s statements about Rand as gospel means he must be destroyed.

  72. Bitterlaw says:

    Bunu probably believes that the Sandy Hill massacre was faked, too. Do you think that, Bunu? It is a yes or no question.

  73. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Bitterlaw says:
    January 23, 2013 at 5:06 pm
    And Rand is a non-interventionist.

    Translation – isolationist.

    -You know what this makes me think of? Truman and MacArthur, during the Korean War. I will say, right off the bat, that my knowledge of this conflict is limited, so please correct me if I am wrong. I believe MacArthur wanted to go ALL IN, not just contain, but Truman, the politician, was more cautious. 50,000 dead American men later, and 60 years later, maybe MacArthur was correct??
    If you are going to intervene, intervene with the FULL FORCE AND POWER of the nation, not with half-measures like we did back then, and also in Vietnam.

  74. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – You are directing your venom towards me? Interesting.

  75. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Bunu and his god, Ron Paul, believe in a world where Iran has nuclear weapons and America does not. Are you comfortable with that view?

  76. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    well Bunu did come on here saying terrorists killed by drones were more important then the Sandy Hook kids

  77. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I have no venom, I have questions. I can see the desire to not intervene in several cases, because the politicians are not united, and then the full might of the military is not unleashed.

  78. Bitterlaw says:

    I won’t even watch the video that “proves” the massacre was fake because I will not drive traffic to those scumbags.

    baloney. I said Obama is a hypocrite with this gun violence stuff using kids as campaign props while he’s the one killing.

  80. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – I am not in favor of all intervention. The Paulbots are opposed to all defense of the US.

    And the last person drafted was when? On my 18th birthday I was proud to register for the draft. I went there before I went home from school.

    Come on, Bunu. Was Sandy Hill fake or not?

  85. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Who is Obama killing, Emerica?

  86. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I am not even comfortable if we keep ours, and they acquire them from someone, or build their own. What to do about it is a pretty tough question, though, and the current policies have done little to stop them.

  87. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    baloney. I said Obama is a hypocrite with this gun violence stuff using kids as campaign props while he’s the one killing.

    -Emerica,
    I agree with you that Obama is using kids as campaign props, but who is he killing?

  88. Tulipomania says:

    #89

    I was talking about his drone strikes.

    And I think the idea of a fake Sandy Hook is ridiculous although I generally ignore Bitterlaw’s rants unless someone else is talking about it.

  89. Bitterlaw says:

    Answer the question, Bunu. Was Sandy Hill faked? Why are you afraid to answer?

  90. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    @90 drone strikes on terrorists offend you?

  91. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    “I was talking about his drone strikes.”

    -Ok, but who is he killing? Is he killing American citizens, or pigs who would slit your throat as quickly as you could say “Ron Paul is 0 for 100!”

  92. Bitterlaw says:

    I was typing when Bunu answered. Maybe he does have a brain.

  93. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    At least he answered that part. Still waiting on the drone strike question.

  94. Michael (Capito for Senate) says:

    Bunu likes terrorists apparently

  95. Phil says:

    Another entire thread on Ron Paul etc.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  96. Tulipomania says:

    This will explain it for you…

    The catch-all phrase, “War on Terrorism,” in all honesty, has no more meaning than if one wants to wage a war against criminal gangsterism. It’s deliberately vague and non-definable to justify and permit perpetual war anywhere, and under any circumstances. Don’t forget: the Iraqis and Saddam Hussein had absolutely nothing to do with any terrorist attack against us including that on 9/11.
    Special interests and the demented philosophy of conquest have driven most wars throughout history. Rarely has the cause of liberty, as it was in our own revolution, been the driving force. In recent decades our policies have been driven by neo-conservative empire radicalism, profiteering in the military industrial complex, misplaced do-good internationalism, mercantilistic notions regarding the need to control natural resources, and blind loyalty to various governments in the Middle East.
    -Ron Paul

  97. HHR Senator AuthorLMendez, El Patron says:

    Bunu cant even answer yes or no. He can just qoute Mr 0-100+

    Prince Harry’s Mental Problem: Murdering Afghans is Like a Video Game

    After frolicking naked with a nude nubile in Las Vegas, Captain Harry Wales was sent to Afghanistan to co-pilot an Apache attack helicopter and fight the CIA-created opposition, the Taliban.
    The dashing young grandson of the aging monarch Queen Elizabeth and the second son of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles has since compared killing Afghan insurgents to playing video games.
    Taking out officially designated enemies with Hellfire missiles is a “joy for me because I’m one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox,” Harry told the BBC. “So with my thumbs I like to think I’m probably quite useful.”
    Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told The Telegraph Harry is a “coward” for comparing his military escapades to playing a video game. “To describe the war in Afghanistan as a game demeans anyone – especially a prince, who is supposed to be made of better things,” he said.

  102. jason's derangement says:

    Rand Paul targets Boehner-Cantor. House leaders ‘retreated’ on debt ceiling

    Sen. Rand Paul accused House Republican leaders of having “retreated” in the face of a confrontation with President Barack Obama, criticizing their decision to vote on raising the U.S. debt ceiling this week during a speech in South Carolina Monday night.
    In remarks to the Charleston Meeting, a gathering of conservative leaders in the first-in-the-South presidential primary state, Paul rebuked the House for its plans to delay the debt limit fight by a few months. Republicans intend to vote this week on raising the country’s statutory debt limit to delay a spending standoff with the White House by about three months.

    “I saw the speaker on TV handing the newly sworn-in president a flag. I am afraid it was the white flag of surrender,” the Kentucky Republican said, according to a GOP source present at the meeting.
    Alluding to the House GOP’s gathering last week in Williamsburg, Va., Paul jabbed: “They came out of their retreat and retreated.”

    As for rand, ive been impressed. I favor weaning israel off non military aid. They don’t need it. On finances hes saying the right things. Don’t forget joe Kennedy was a nazi but Jews loved jiffkah

  122. jason says:

    Israel is pretty well weaned off economic aid. What they need is military aid and that is what Rand Paul wants to cut off.

    For your benefit I will repost Jonathan Tobin’s article from the previous thread:

    “But it should also be understood that his “let the Israelis decide things for themselves” stand comes in the context of a longstanding position that treats everything that happens in the Middle East as being none of America’s business. So while his expressions of friendship are welcome and far more acceptable than the sort of stuff we had come to expect from his father, it’s difficult to argue that a person who has never believed the U.S. has vital interests in the region is the sort who can be relied upon to have Israel’s back in a crisis.

    Paul also seeks, as he did in our exchange, to spin his position opposing aid to Israel as not synonymous with hostility. It is true that, as he argues, Prime Minister Netanyahu told Congress back in 1996 that he wanted to phase out U.S. aid. But Netanyahu was referring to economic assistance, not military aid. In fact, Netanyahu’s goal of eliminating economic aid has already been accomplished. For years, Israel has only gotten military aid. But Paul still wants to cut it–although he now says he wants to do it gradually and that countries that burn our flag rather than friends like Israel should get the axe first.

    Israel is better off without having its economy subsidized by foreign friends, but in a region where oil money helps fuel an arms race with the nation’s foes, American assistance is vital. Paul told the Washington Post that he admires the Iron Dome anti-missile system that helped save Israeli lives during the recent fighting with Hamas and would even like to see the U.S. develop its own version. But does he think Iron Dome would have been built without extensive U.S. support from both the Bush and Obama administrations? Israel’s ability to act independently in its own interests would be enhanced if it didn’t have to rely to some degree on its one true ally. But the fact remains that American military aid remains necessary to ensure the country’s security. If you don’t get that, then you don’t get the alliance.”

    State loses 9,000 union workers in 2012

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The number of union workers in West Virginia is nearing its lowest point in memory, according to federal figures released Wednesday.

    The number of union workers in the state has dropped sharply over the past three decades but held relatively steady in the last decade. But in 2012, about 9,000 fewer union members had jobs than in 2011.

    The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said 84,000 union members had jobs in West Virginia in 2012, or about 12 percent of the wage-earning workforce.

    That’s the second lowest number of union workers since 1983 (when it was 142,000).

    It is so refreshing to see that the MSM does not piddle around and focus on ho-hum issues like Benghazi, illegal immigration, election fraud, unemployment, welfare fraud, debt crisis, no fedeeral budget for 1000 or whatever days, etc.

    It is far more needed and beneficial to instead give huge air time to fully inform the public as to what hair styles, dresses and coats were worn by Mrs. Obammer and Biden and of course the fake girl friend of a ND college player.

    Pitiful.

  186. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m still weighing the evidence. If NYC uses the word “statist,” he will have confessed to Paulbotism.

  187. Bitterlaw says:

    186.So paterno didnt ignore child rape, armstrong didnt cheat and lie and oj didnt kill his ex wife. What color is the sky in your world

    Unlike Add, I learned to wait until evidence is presented. In order:

    Paterno should have gone to the police himself. He was wrong.

    Armstrong did cheat. He admitted he cheated. Before he admitted that he cheted he passed many tests. Passing the tests was not evidence that he actually did cheat.

    I believe that OJ is a murderer who was found not guilty in a criminal trial and responsible in a civil trial.

    The idea of Skittles lecturing people on jumping to the wrong conclusion is laughable.

  188. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Come on, Shyster. Boehner the crybaby? Cantor with the false looking teeth? McConnell, the Droopy guy from Bugs Bunny or whatever it was? If anyone other than Rand Paul had said what Rand said, you would totally agree with it. But, because it was Rand Paul, you can’t agree with it? Give me a break. I am not arguing FOR Rand Paul, I am arguing for any person who will take it to obama and the Dems, and do it without being a deadender, without bringing up abortion and contraception, except in a Constitutional way. I am arguing for any person who can go on MSNBC and not be afraid to speak about fiscal issues in a way which makes sense to a lot of Americans. I also see a politician who has some different positions than the rest of his party, but is not afraid to voice them. I’ll give cheers to Rubio with his immigration proposal, to Ryan for his Roadmap, to Scott Walker for being tough, for Rick Snyder for acting wisely and waiting for a certain time to go after the unions.
    Come on, man, are you going to reward knee-jerk reactionaries like jason?

  189. Bitterlaw says:

  193. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Wow, so now nobody else has opinions about the people who lead their party, is that it? The fear of actually agreeing with Rand Paul has silenced the great Bitterlaw! Long live the Governor, the governor is muerte!!

    You can agree with Rand Paul all you want. Did I tell you not to do so? I have to evaluate the entire person not just a few statements. I think that Rand Paul is naive at best and dangerous at worst on foreign policy. I absolutely believe that. Since those issues matter to me more than social or tax issues, why do I need to embrace him?

    Rand Paul is right on some things? Great. If I agree when he tells me that 2+2 = 4 does that mean I also have to accept gutting the military and abandoning our only real ally in the Middle East?

  198. W. PA Observer says:

    147- Sorry to hear that Walt.

    111- MD- I agree on that completely. Harry is really fulfilling the traditional role of the younger son/brother of a monarch. Lead armies in his brother’s name, personally on the field- killing the king’s (in this case the Queen’s) enemies, and as a perk – drinking and wenching during the downtime. Hell, in the Medieval period he’d probably get a nickname like Prince Harry the Hellfire or something.

  199. jason says:

    Reactionary? LOL

    How about running dog capitalist?

    Soon NYC the new Paulbot will be attacking the “military industrial complex”.

    Oh, and Boehner, Cantor, Cornyn (I voted for him), McConnell, all have distinguished records and though I may disagree with them on various issues, they are all real Republicans.

    And every one of them supports our military and Israel and our strategic alliances. Every one of them recognizes Iran and Islamic terrorism as a threat. None of them think we brought 9/11 on ourselves. All of them understand we have interests beyond our borders.

    So Go F–k yourself, Paulbot.

    Oh, and Boehner, Cantor, Cornyn (I voted for him), McConnell, all have distinguished records and though I may disagree with them on various issues, they are all real Republicans.

    -All easily replaced, not a leader among them. Sure, they have done fine at certain points, but none have distinguished themselves. None of them stood up to Bush when he was spending like a drunken fool, and none of them have explained the dangers of our budgetary mess, something that should be happening day in & day out on the floor of the House. Lead, or get out of the way.

  204. jason says:

    Screw you, I am not on your side.

    You are on Bunu’s side, not mine.

    To clarify one thing – I think all Democrats are wrong and some are dangerous. I think all Paulbots are wrong AND dangerous.

  206. jason says:

    Bitter, Paulbots are not very flexible, you probably noticed.

  207. Bitterlaw says:

  209. Bitterlaw says:

    House – give me Ryan, Bachmann, anyone who can frame the fight in a way that is understood by the American people, and won’t go into closed door meetings with Reid, Pelosi, and Obama

  213. jason says:

    It will settle down to the usual.

    NYC and Bunu will do their daily idol worshipping.

    Ron Paul will still be irrelevant and Rand Paul will still lose.

  214. Bitterlaw says:

    Because in 2010 and 2012, the GOP pissed away the chance to take the Senate and name a Majority Leader.

    We are getting into la-la land now.

    -You know where I get this from. I can remember the floor speeches given by Gingrich and other Republicans which led to the 1994 takeover of the House. Cspan broadcast those speeches all day, every day. Drum, drum drum it into the people, speak with a united voice. go on that retreat, choose 3 – 5 items to concentrate on, and then have everyone go out to their constituents speaking about those issues. Ignore the issues that the media asks about, frame every question as you want to answer it.

  217. jason says:

    Boehner and McConnell could be the worst Republicans ever. Just horrible.

    That changes nothing about Rand Paul.

  218. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    what did the leaders do after the retreat? First, Cantor goes and gives a press conference, now Boehner goes out and contradicts what he said 3 days ago. Yes, these are the leaders who will get us through 4 more years.

  219. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    I never said they were the worst, they are simply not the best to be leading the party right now. and when they are wrong, they should be called on it.

  220. NYCmike (Bronxie) says:

    Cheers, and have a good night!

  221. jason says:

    I disagree about Jul. He does not buy the Paulbot crap on foreign policy. He has the misguided idea that Rand Paul is a fiscal conservative, forgetting Ron Paul was one of the biggest porkers in Congress.

  222. jason says:

    Like I said, whatever the failings of Boehner and McConnell are, it does not justify becoming a Paulbot.

  223. jason says:

    NYC has a new tack. Boehner and McConnell are evil, so we should back Rand Paul.

    If I agree gasoline is poisonous to drink, do I have to drink a bottle of cyanide?

    Jason – Jul rails about the esyablishment like Bunu. He will vote for Dems or 3rd parties over Republicans like Bunu. I agree he is not Bunu on foreign issues but he has disturbing tendencies.

  225. jason says:

    Btw, John Cornyn is ranked the 14th most conservative Senator.

    I guess that’s not good enough for NYC, anything over 10th and you are a RINO.

  226. jason says:

    Yeah, Jul has wacky ideas too, but since my main problem with the Pauls is foreign policy, I can’t lump him in with Bunu and NYC.

  227. EML says:

    It is so cold out, I saw a Democrat with his hands in his own pockets!

  228. Bitterlaw says:

    Vaudeville is not dead. EML will be back right after a performance by the seals and Freaky the Clown…..

    Bring back global warming! I have to be out in this crap today unless I can catch cabs on the streets of Manhatten. Good luck with that.

  230. The World According To Bollings says:

    #227 – Rand Paul is not a fiscal conservative, because his Daddy wasn’t.

    #228 – If you say Boehner & McConnell are horrible leaders, you are a Paulbot.

    #229 – NYCmike has different “tacks”. One of them is claiming some people are evil, although the word evil is never used. He uses code words, such as “horrible leaders”, which is the same thing.

    #229 – NYCmike says ALL HHR participants must back Rand Paul, although, once again, he has never said those words. He may have used the code words ‘support Rand Paul instead of a Democrat”.

    #231 – NYCmike called John Cornyn a RINO, although, once again, he used code words, but nobody knows what they were. Plus, as the 14th most conservative Senator, especially from a LIBERAL state like Texas, we should all applaud him for being so courageous, because, after all, he is from the VERY LIBERAL state of Texas.

    #232 – Bunu posts every day (and every comment) for 8 years about Ron Paul, and refuses to vote for the Republican who gets nominated via the primary/caucus system in place.
    NYCmike has several posts which show a Republican Senator in a good light, all while saying he would rather that same Senator NOT run for President, and also while either extolling or criticizing the actions of other Republican officials, but will definitely vote for the Republican nominee in 2016.
    Bunu and NYCmike should be lumped together.*
