  •  Repubs LOST bigtime during this election (4+ / 0-)

    and they are STILL driving their agenda forward.

    They are mean and pushy and demanding and that's what dems are missing.

    Dems can't get what they want with please and thank you and "I'd like to request 2 minutes to make a statement on the floor".

    How are the Repubs getting their way despite losing?

    By being very very aggressive.

    Do Dems really want what they want?

    or are they just talking fancy?

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      ours is.

      that is changing but not quick enough.  americans want tax cuts.  they don't understand policy or science.

      religion clouds many.  so many issues.  we have to thread the needle.  it's pretty much always been that way.

        wimpy and skittish about anything more aggressive than a meekly-worded request.

      •  When I was bullied in school (5+ / 0-)

        it continued until I stopped being a wimp.

        When I fought back, hit people, hurt them, THEN and ONLY THEN did it stop.

        Pleading did no good. Ignoring them did no good. Being nice did no good.

        Hurting them worked beautifully.

        Stone cold fact.

        Same shit with dems and repubs.

        Dems are just too wimpy: repubs are getting what they want and we aren't.

        No - I don't really care what we need to do to win at this point in time: winning ugly is fine with me because winning is SO IMPORTANT.

        I don't want to put up with needless repub bullshit and conole myself with "at least I didn't do anything unpleasant".

        Winning is good and essential.

        Losing because some are interested in being weak isn't a happy thought.
