Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

What the Hell is Wrong with Democrats?

Do Democrats have a mental disease? Are they somehow retarded? Is hypocrisy part of this dementia?

I think you've all heard snippets from the MoveOn.org convention of the mentally challenged party.

Do they understand the term "deomcracy"? It is the rule of the majority. If one party has the majority in Congress, the agenda of that majority is pushed. Does anyone remember the Democrat controlled congresses from the 40's through the 80's? They didn't seem to mind having the majority then. Now, they are screaming about the majority-because it's not their party-hypocrisy.

Such stunning quotes as:

"They want the rubber stamp of dictatorship," said Senator Chuck Schumer.

"They want one-party rule," said Senator Patrick Leahy.

"An ill wind blows through this country. Your freedom of speech is in jeopardy," said Senator Robert Byrd. "The opponents of the filibuster, the opponents of free speech say we don't need 217 years of American history."

Senators Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, and Hillary Clinton also took turns at the microphone to denounce a Republican "power grab." They were speaking on Wednesday at a rally organized by MoveOn.org.

Power grab? They have the majority, idiot. They have the power. There is no need for a "grab" because the voters "gave" them the power. They have the majority in the House, the Senate, and they have the white house because the voters wanted it that way. They are NOT opposed to filibusters, only the abuse of it. The Democrats have successfully halted not only debate, but a vote, on judicial nominations, nominations that have the constitutionally required 51 votes for confirmation. That is abuse.

They are requiring those nominations to have 60 votes for confirmation, and that is unconstitutional.

Senate Republicans, upset that a mere 95 percent of Bush's judicial nominations have been approved, have proposed eliminating the filibuster, and with it the minority party's ability to oppose a nomination and to insist on 60 votes rather than 51 for approval.

All the bulls#(^ over changing the senate rules is disgusting also. TRobert Byrd changed those exact senate rules in 1989 and lowered the votes required to end a filibuster from 67 to 60, so STOP THE HYPOCRISY.

The voters have voted and Republicans are the majority. It's time to allow work to be done.
