No picking on John McCain on this thread, since he voted for the treaty and also spoke in favor of it.

Charles Johnson,

I saw this yesterday. John Stewart is hilarious. I'm amazed how conservative Republicans could be complaining about this when there's nothing in it that would actually impeded on American Sovereignty, when there isn't even an enforcement mechanism, and them who opposed it, even admitted so.

Gotta love our governing body being comprised of conspiracy theorists and using said fear to drive our policy. Crazy, scared and weak.

Their hatred of the UN is exceeded only by their hatred of Obama. If that means tossing handicapped people under the bus, then it has to be done in the name of ideological purity.

Even a blind squirrel can find a nut. And speaking of nuts, did you catch what that nut McCain said about Syria's Assad today? He jumbled Assad, Iraq, Al Qaeda, Afghanistan and Benghazi together in a statement that would make Sarah Palin's head spin with disbelief at its stupidity.


But Kudos to Senator McCain for voting for the treaty...the man is such a maverick.

For as crazy as he's been acting lately it's not hard to remember that I actually considered him a viable Presidential candidate at one point. Actually right up until the point where he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate.

Even then, his stance in this instance and on torture do garner respect from me and they don't seem to be false or appeasing positions.

Pfft. Rock bottom.

Odds are that the senate will have a new filibuster rule come January. Odds are Boehner means it when he says no bill that comes because of that rule will get past the house. Stop and think of the bills that barely passed this year, or that had various shenanigans in the process.

Children's health? Unemployment? Heck, the inevitable disaster relief?

The do-nothing party is in power and doing their best to live up to the name.

They were never going to do anything. All the filibuster brouhaha does is provide him with a convenient excuse to be useless.

Well, considering he was tortured and is partially disabled (I think?), I would hope not.

Yeah, this is a great piece. He definitely communicated the same vibes I was ranting about yesterday (?).

The UN has no power--they are diplomats. WTF?

I still say it's the recognition of LGBT individuals and women in the treaty that is the reason behind the stupid reasons the GOP put forth.

John Birch Society Drones --One World Government --yeah, yeah.

The GOP is so full of BS. There is no even debating them anymore.

I remember reading about him saying he was going to sing "Dixie" to Carol Moseley Braun till she cried. Really, I was never a big Robert Byrd fan but I always laughed at the right wingers who brought up Byrd as proof that the Dems "were the real racists" when Jesse Helms unlike Byrd seem to show no regrets at all for a political career made by racism.

33 kirkspencer  Thu, Dec 6, 2012 12:28:22pm

I should point out that we will probably see Obama's impeachment in the next couple of years. And I'm still willing to bet they can go lower after that.

34 HappyWarrior  Thu, Dec 6, 2012 12:29:12pm

I think the real moment the Republican party started hitting its downward spiral is when Nixon decided to embrace Strom Thurmond and many of the old Dixiecrats and made the Southern Strategy a focal point of his campaign. To me, that's where Nixon goes from merely being Tricky Dick to the biggest dick ever to live in the White House.

McConnell Filibusters His Own Bill

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted to prove on Thursday that Democrats don’t have the votes to weaken Congress’ authority on the debt limit. Instead they called his bluff, and he ended up filibustering his own bill.

The legislation, modeled on a proposal McConnell offered last year as a “last-choice option” to avert a U.S. debt default, would permit the president to unilaterally lift the debt ceiling unless Congress mustered a two-thirds majority to stop him.

McConnell brought up the legislation Thursday morning. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) initially objected, seemingly proving the Republican leader’s point that it cannot pass the Senate. But then Reid ran it by his members and, in the afternoon, agreed to hold that same vote. This time it was McConnell who objected.

“The Republican leader objects to his own idea,” Reid declared on the floor. “So I guess we have a filibuster of his own bill.”

Quit wasting people's time, jackass.

Conservatives And Jesse Helms

I haven't written anything about Jesse Helms' death, since I don't like speaking ill of the dead. However: every so often, conservatives wonder: why oh why do people think that the Republican party, and/or the conservative movement, is bigoted? I think that the conservative response to Helms' death ought to settle that debate once and for all.

...

Here are quotes by Jesse Helms himself. As you read them, bear in mind all those lovely quotes above, the ones about how he's a conservative champion, a fighter for conservative ideals, etc. They said it, not me.

“Nothing positive happened to Sodom and Gomorrah,” he said, “and nothing positive is likely to happen to America if our people succumb to the drumbeats of support for the homosexual lifestyle.”

"Mr. Clinton better watch out if he comes down here. He'd better have a bodyguard."

"Crime rates and irresponsibility among Negroes are a fact of life which must be faced."

He was pulling a page out of the House's playbook earlier, suggesting an amendment to a Russian trade bill that he claims is Obama's fiscal cliff deal proposal, in the hopes that he could get the Democrats to vote against it. Reid said he was having none of that, that this is a serious bill geared towards creating jobs, and dickless...er, McConnell has now declared that it's "proof" that Democrats don't want to be caught voting against Obama's proposal.

2. We admit there is a power greater than the GOP
3. Make a decision to make up your own mind
4. We admit what we believed was wrong.
5. Make amends to our progressive or minority friends we have harmed or spoken poorly of.
6. Take a personal inventory of our thinking and be prepared to admit where we were wrong and act on it.
7. We seek truth through fact gathering and exhibit a first loyalty to facts.
8. Have a political awakening and encourage Republicans to stop what they are doing and seek the truth with us.

Their problem is they're delusional enough to think that the American people reject them because they're not conservative enough so they think that their textbook insanity- doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results will work. They don't want to deal with the new demographics and realities because they've either ignored or insulted them. That's why you see many a right wing pundit whining about how the country is changing (read less white). Demographic shifts happen all the time though. Once upon a time this country was overwhelmingly Protestant and the ideological ancestors of these people whined about Catholic and Jewish immigrants. They see cultural change as a personal threat to them.

well to balance fairy the partisanship...Tuesday the Supreme Court had a 8-0 ruling (Kagen recusing) on a takings case. Decision on Arkansas Game Commission

Arkansas Game and Fish owns a wildlife management area. There is an Army Corp Dam. The dam releases water according to a schedule. But periodically at the request of farmers the Corp deviates and releases water during peak growing season. However this then floods the forested area of which there are logging rights. The charge was that this was a takings violation meaning the action of the government negatively impacted commercial value and was a taking of property. Lower courts argued that the temporary nature trumped the takings laws. The Supreme Court over-ruled and said even temporary measures could constitute taking. I heard absolutely nothing about this in the media. However does this mean, for example, if a city government closes a road for repair and affects business owners temporarily, those businesses have a takings claim?

It's a theory of mine that the Republican party started to get weird when they allied with the Conservative Democrats and fundamentalist isolationists in the run up to World War II. It's the synthesis of the whole John Birch movement.

Eisenhower did a lot of to beat that part of the party back- but still, I can't help but think that some of the more amoral forces in the GOP saw that the path to power ran through the racists after they received even less votes than in 1944 vs Truman and Thurmond.

Yeah that's true. For me, the final nail in the coffin is Reagan opening his campaign where the three Civil Rights workers were kidnapped and later murdered and talking about "states rights." Really is something to me. Some parties and people seem to evolve as the years go on by but the Republicans to me seem to have devolved. See this treaty. Their 1996 presidential nominee who was also their 1976 vice presidential nominee was a strong supporter of this treaty and they rejected him.

re: #59 Big Steve

I don't think it works that way, because a local road closure would probably fall under the "speculative" part of the 5th Amendment (I'm assuming this is what they're talking about?) insomuch as the Government isn't directly taking or impacting land owned by that person.

Otherwise, every time there was some form of closure for any reason every business owner within 50 miles could file a claim and gum the shit out of the system. There's also a ruling that states that Takings are invalid when it's determined that the government intervention (intervention...not sure what word to use there) benefits the public in some way.

No time to read that whole decision...but was the logging area (trees) impacted somehow, like in destruction of the property, or just a temporary setback in logging operations? I'd agree some compensation is in order if property was damaged...but if there's a dam there, then they wouldn't have access to that area anyway.
