  1. I used to think the Republican Party was a bunch of people with different approaches to solve the same problems.

    That was before Ronald Reagan invited Jerry Falwell and his Immorality Boys into the inner sanctum of the GOP.

    That is the moment in history when our politics started this downward spiral into what we see today – GOP Krazy Klown Kar.

    This craziness has lowered the bar of acceptable behavior, common courtesy is gone and common sense went out the window.

    I am not very optimistic that our country can pull out of this deep hole.

    • I whole heartily agree, but add the group I call the “Nazi Cons” there are two actual groups that make them up. One being the aforementioned “Religious Right” the only are those one’s whom would have seen the Third Reich as the way to go.

    • I still need to learn or remember? How to post images sorry.

      • But what is said reflect how I see myself, though I blame him for bring the Nazi-Cons to power.

      • He said a lot of sensible things, like the quote in that meme. Actions, not words, usually bring results. đŸ™‚

      • I agree fnord

        Actions speak louder than words.

        I also remember when Reagan was asked about his part in Iran Contra Scandal – he said something to the effect that he could not remember..

        He never said that he did not sell weapons to Iran – he just could not remember doing it.

        Yeah, actions like that speak volumes to me…

        The problem with today’s Conservative Republicans is that they have dumbed down so much to the point where these folks truly believe they rank right up with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere and the other men leading up to the American Revolution.

        And doing all this tea party while stomping on the American Flag by wearing American Flag looking t-shirts wrapped around their beer guts and the women wearing underwear that looks the American Flag.

        Come on now seriously – do you think Betsy Ross made herself a set of bra and panties when she made the first American Flag ?

  2. Lady friend of 6176 just posted to Facebook: At ********* hospital with 6176 who had a heart attack today. What a nasty way for this day to turn. He is in ICU but doing well.

    Earlier today 6176 had posted to his Facebook Wall: Monday was the 6th anniversary of my stroke. Thus, my annual reminder of FAST. It may well save your life, as well as that of another.
