    The “…we march today, we vote tomorrow” crowd shares this dream.

    Looks like South America was so ashamed of how screwed up we are it just up and left. Personally, I don’t blame them!

    Also, Allison did a really great job of an outline of the US from memory… Looks like she’s taking lessons from Al Franken! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0-FYyuvrRk

  1. Remember the Absolut reconquista ads in which the s.w. U.S. was drawn up, annexed into Me-he-co? Yeah, I’m still on my personal Absolut boycott.

    We might stand a chance at not getting our asses beat at the World Cup if this happened!

  2. Apart from poor Allison, who seems to have a curiously set of priorities, who are the people sharing her dream?

    Marbles,
    Current events, dating back a few years, has not been noticed by you, has it?

    Who shares Allison’s dream?…
    A direct answer to your question;
    – Most of the Democrat party, seeking to strengthen their voter-fraud agenda
    – La Raza
    – ACORN & other DNC operative groups
    – Those countless thousands of idiot protestors which had signs reading; “Today we March, Tomorrow we Vote”
    – Militant students in S. California public schools who hoisted the Mexican flag above an upside-down US flag, on the schools flag poles.

    These are really subtle, barely significant things — just a major political party, an insurgent anti-USA foreign group (La Raza), supporting & trying to nurture an illegal foreign insurgency… all trying to undermine US sovereignty.

    What’s the big deal, huh?

  3. DemocratIC Party, Steve. DemocratIC. The direct translation of that “ic” ommission is “f*** you.”
    Would you enjoy communicating with anyone whose personal pet name for you was “F*** You?”
    Didn’t think so. =)

    Anyway.

    Voter-fraud agenda? Evidence, please. It’s been brought up again and again, and the result has always been table scraps. The same table scraps you’ll find in most political organizations, being run by beings who are both human (inherently prone to evil) and politicians (ESPECIALLY prone to evil).

    La Raza—-ah, yes. (At least the collection of winners among it that you’re referring to.) A group of hysterical racist children with adolescent wet dreams of national conquest. Why, I’m sure I saw them at the Democratic fudnraiser the other day.

    ACORN again? What is the obsession with ACORN? It’s comically disproportionate to anything that organization was ever capable of or intent upon.
    And you do know that most of the charges that brought them down have been revealed as bogus, right? Not that the media has shown much contrition for their laziness-cum-complicitness. In that light, it’s a miracle Sherry Sherrod’s full story was told in a matter of days instead of months. In that respect, she got lucky.

    Those “militant students?” Okay, if I characterized the racist freaks among La Raza as puerile adolescents before, in this case it’s literal.
    Honestly, how are stupid kids like that more of a threat than, say, the Young Republicans meeting at Brad’s house after school?

    And getting back to the first thing on the list—
    Seriously. Think about what you’re saying. Whether you mean it or not isn’t the point. You’re propping up the irresponsible rhetoric that has lead ucomfortably large swaths of people in this country to think that a major political party actually wants to bring America down from the inside, via mass immigration. You realize that’s completely insane, right? The people who toss this stuff out there and then try to back off with “It’s called HYPERBOLE, folks! Lighten up!” have a responsibility to tone it down, because unlike them, many of their shallow-minded audiences really DO believe it.

    Geee wiz! ANOTHER example of English-grammar deficiency on the part of supporters of the DEMOCRAT party.
    Drug use must be having an insidious effect… or the NEA ‘dumb down America’ project is hugely effective, if the use of proper grammar is seen as flipping a “FU”, in the realm of political discussions.

    Here is a simple, follow-the-bouncing-ball to a reality check;
    – If you register as a Libertarian – that implies you support the Libertarian party
    – If you register as a Independent – that implies you support the Independent party
    – If you register as a Green – that implies you support the Green party
    – If you register as a Republican – that implies you support the Republican party
    [ See where we are going with this? ]

    So, you want it to be called the DEMOCRATIC party?

    Oke-dokie…
    Does that mean you (or all them) are registered Democratic’s ???

    Note: that last question requires a simple, “yes” or “no” answer. Nothing else!

    A registered Democrat is one who affiliates with the DEMOCRAT party — simple-!!!
    Most any home-schooled child, a fraction of your age, can figure this out.

    And, Democrat party voter fraud efforts:
    – Begin with the historically documented election fraud that was critical to JFK’s election (1960)
    – Fast forward to Al Gore’s shameless fraud efforts in Florida with ‘handing chads’.
    – Then Al Frankin-fraud of Minnesota, a stolen Senate seat from ballots being pulled from car trunks.
    – And all over the US, scores & scores of lawsuits, and legal maneuvers from the Democrat party to prevent and circumvent laws requiring voter ID at all election polling places.

    Proper voter ID at polling places is exactly there to prevent/ minimize voter fraud.
    That is why Democrat party efforts have feverously fought these laws for several years, from state to state.

    As for the remainder of your retort — honestly, it seems you have not followed the last several years of current events, and my fingers are tired.
    You can find most of these topic’s in Zack’s cartoons and the following comments.

  4. “So, you want it to be called the DEMOCRATIC party?”

    Uh…no, Steve. I don’t WANT it to be called the Democratic Party. It IS called the Democratic Party. The English grammer quirk nonewithstanding (as odd as it is, no argument there), that is the NAME of the organization. It is no more the “Democrat Party” than the GOP is the “Republic Party.”

    This isn’t difficult. Imagine if some rival at the office gave you a nickname you didn’t appreciate, yet insisted on using it both when addressing you and when speaking of you to others. It would have the effect of both antagonizing you and belittling you.

    You don’t get to change someone’s name just because you feel like it, and not expect the person to object. Same for political organizations. It’s a matter of civility and respect.

    The fact that you seem to believe that “Democrat Party” is the real name of the organization speaks volumes about how well the closed-circuit, one-sided conversation has had its intended effect. Yes, intended. Make no mistake about it.

    “Honestly, it seems you have not followed the last several years of current events”

    Not through a fun-house mirror lens, no. Those lens are manufactured by people whose only interests are exploiting societal faultlines for their own gain. This feeds and perpetuates the irresponsible eliminationist rhetoric that has poisoned this country’s entire political culture.

    Following the last several years of events has been a painful process, but at least some of us are viewing them through our own eyes. Many others can’t say the same.

    Sorry, but the voter fraud hype is making the Catskills into the Himalayas. No honest person wants either party to plant itself on the Catskills, or even a molehill, but the sad fact is, this stuff exists in both parties and to pretend otherwise is foolish. That dog don’t hunt.

    The Franken thing?

    Not so cut and dried, and in all probability, barely cut at all.

    “You can find most of these topic’s in Zack’s cartoons and the following comments”

    Just as you find milk in Kraft singles.

    Marbles,
    The first 176 words of your reply is a ‘feeling oriented’ specimen of that which is in direct contradiction of this age-old pillar of wisdom;

    “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
    –John Adams, ‘Argument in Defense of the Soldiers in the Boston Massacre Trials,’ December 1770
    US diplomat & politician (1735 – 1826)

    In other words, you assert, ‘because I feel this way, therefore it is true’.
    That is a fine encapsulation of the DNC culture & platform for the past half-century!

    Look – neither the Republican nor Democrat parties have a monopoly on vice or virtue-!!
    Yes?
    Are you surprised to read that from me?

    What is overwhelmingly true, is that elections for offices higher than the state, county & local levels [- meaning the Congressional (House & Senate), Gubernatorial, and the Presidency ],… incidents that are strongly suggestive, or blatantly obvious of election fraud, are overwhelmingly, if not exclusively, Democrat initiated, to get their candidate in office.

    Your flippant dismissal of the facts that ACORN is a corrupt cesspit of organized election fraud, is indicative that you either have a partisan interest in THEIR agenda,… or perhaps you do not care what the truth is, your day-to-day interests are elsewhere.

    Screw believing what I assert — I implore you to go do your own research, and avoid sources like Media Matters, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NY Times, et al… and other leftist ‘tools’ who have a partisan agenda.
    Find someone who will let you use their Nexus-Lexus data base-!

    And — go to Neal Boortz, who has done his research about the origins of the name “Democrat”.
    It is very unflattering-!

    Marbles-
    Here are some fun fact’s from of history…

    A very brief excerpt from a Neal Boortz dialog ( put aside your likely ire against Boortz, consider the contents of what this author has found! ]

    ” I’m willing to bet that not many of you have read the book “Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation” by Joseph Ellis.
    Ellis is a Professor of History at Mount Holyoke College. The book received the Pulitzer Prize for History in 2001. Before we get to something Ellis said in that book .. let’s determine whether or not Ellis is some right-winger that The Talkmaster wants to use as a wonderful source of information. Ellis is quoted as saying that he “…think(s) President Bush might very well be the worst president in U.S. history”. So much for Ellis as right-wind ideologue.

    Now .. my point. Ellis’s book is, in case you haven’t already guessed, about the men who formed our country … a/k/a “The Founding Fathers.” In that book Ellis tells us what these men thought about democracy and democrats. You might want to keep this in mind as you consider The Coffee Party movement:
    “… the term “democrat” originated as an epithet and referred to ‘one who panders to the crude and mindless whims of the masses.'”

    So .. the Coffee Party “demands” the government respond to the “needs” of the majority; needs expressed as “whims?” These Coffee Party folks are exactly the people who would have been called “democrats” 225 years ago … and it wouldn’t have been intended as a compliment. Look up the word “epithet.”

  5. “In other words, you assert, ‘because I feel this way, therefore it is true’.”

    I’ll be honest. It’s a little bit frightening when people accuse others of doing exactly what they themselves are doing, and seem to believe their own words. Adding the Adams quote only makes it more surreal.

    This isn’t about how I FEEL, Steve. This is a FACT. I can’t believe you’re sticking by this—it’s one of the silliest positions anyone could take. How I “feel” has nothing to do with it.
    It’d be one thing if you said you couldn’t see what difference the name makes, or didn’t care. But you’re asserting something that is objectively untrue, and proclaiming that the factual name is only how I “feel about it.”
    Come on, seriously.

    (Unless, of course, Wikipedia is too “liberal” and thus cannot be trusted—which is exactly what the creators of Conservapedia assert.)

    “Look – neither the Republican nor Democrat parties have a monopoly on vice or virtue-!!
    Yes?
    Are you surprised to read that from me?”

    No.
    Even the Tea Party is hardly a bastion of folks who find no fault with the GOP.

    I’m also not surprised that the continued use of ACORN as a cesspool of election fraud continues to make no distinction beteween voter fraud and voter registration fraud. Nothing justifies the illegal conduct, but few, if any, of the shenanagins perpetuated by ACORN workers have resulted in fraudalent votes being cast.
    This failure of distinction, and the manufactured hysteria over that misleading “pimp an’ hoe” footage, are just two of the things demonstrating that ACORN-mania is wildly disproportionate to the actual influence and goals of that organization.
    You talk about “being in sympathy with their agenda.” In your own words, what is that agenda?

    Virtually everything associated with the background of the current president has been subjected to this exact treatment, which is why so little of it has any air of trustworthiness. The Reverend Wright fiasco, for instance. In a campaign season characterized more than any other by blind, unreasoning projection, that guy and his church (neither of which I care for, by the way) were probably the most projected-upon things of all, second only to Obama himself. Almost none of it was based on rational observation. Same with ACORN, same with everything. ACORN has crooked people in it. But you’d think it was the freaking Gestapo.

    And regarding media…
    I’m sorry Steve, but if you’ve fallen in line behind the idea that the networks, CNN and the NY Times are “leftist” (a term so abused it’s lost all meaning), then I don’t know how we can communicate.
    (MSNBC, on the other hand, has indeed developed into a counterweight to Fox, at least in its evening lineup—I’ve never seen its daytime newscasts. But that isn’t “leftist” by any stretch of a fevered imagination.)

    And about the Ellis “democrat” thing–
    I don’t understand. For the sake of this argument, you’re casting the Founders in an unfavorable light? Doesn’t that run counter to the portrayal of the Founders favored in most comments here? (Ones that I can only assume you’ve also made—I’d have to go back and read everyone’s comments again, this time paying attention to who was saying what, but your use of the Adams quote above doesn’t suggest someone who gives the Founders the side-eye.) I don’t understand where you’re going with this. Howard Zinn would of course paint the Founders’ intentions in less than completely noble colors, especially as regards the “common people” and their “whims”, but I think we can both agree that you AIN’T Howard Zinn. XD

  6. Note: I meant to delete that reference to Wikipedia and Conservapedia above, after I figured out that the blog wasn’t letting the post go through until I deleted the link (to an article called “Democrat Party (phrase)”, but I forgot. Leaving it in on its own gives the misleading impression that I regard Wikipedia as the word of God, and that it’s the only reason anyone would think the “ic” is official. I don’t and it isn’t.
    It’d be the same as saying I only believe this country is called The United States of America because Wiki sez so.)
