“Red on yellow, poison fellow; red on black, safe from attack.”

The coral snakes are venomous while the kingsnakes are not.

Whether or not there is much difference between the political parties depends upon who you are or what your focus is.

Thank you I knew the difference and a similar version of the rhyme. I believe he intended it to be a political metaphor. I certainly agree it depends on your perspective.

Excellent metaphor. We thought Obama looked like a friendly King snake that would help keep all the rats at bay. Turns out he's really a poisonous coral snake who has a taste for constitutional cuisine.

Regarding the NDAA, President Obama wrote, “In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.”

What did he do instead? He fought hard to keep the same indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA intact after they were overturned.

Not only does he love keeping enemies under indefinite detention, he also loves keeping innocent people who happened to get swept up in Afghanistan locked up as well.

Scarlet King Snake.

Very polite snake family, the Kings, and they eat poisonous snakes, like the Coral.

There are empirical truths. There are empirical differences.

We need to go Iceland!

they come from different climates

Wrong, their climate/habitation ranges cross.

No difference. If they bit me I would rip them to pieces with my bare hands.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1269) from Milwaukee, WI 2 years ago

Too stupid I guess. They both look like snakes to me. Is this a trick question?

▬►If you think there is no difference -

Your raped daughter will not be able to get an abortion
Your boss’s boss’s boss will get a tax cut
Your neighbor will lose his job
Your son’s 8th grade class size will increase by 20%
Your local prison will hire 10% more people to imprison 50% more people
Your local missile factory will build 20% more missiles
China will send more junk to the USA
The EPA will protect less
You will be fracked

you can ignore the differences -
at your own peril

People who are so stupid and gullible that they will believe any of what you say without any FACTS to back it up-deserve what they get.

The wording on abortion in the GOP platform hasn't changed since 1980. And that wording does NOT ban abortions in the cases of rape or incest at all.

http://www.politifact.com/virginia/statements/2012/sep/04/bob-mcdonnell/bob-mcdonnell-says-gop-platform-has-included-ban-a/

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/244759-top-republican-gop-platform-doesnt-bar-rape-incest-exemptions-on-abortion-

Less than 1 percent of injuries from snake bites in the United States are from coral snakes. Less than 1 percent of abortions performed in the US every year are due to rape or incest.

All of the above, no offense, just serves the money mongers. Actually what we have in mind is a benevolent dictator, the elimination of Congress in favor of a "team" comprised of one representative from every state, the creation of a national police force, the closure of all but federal prisons in favor of corporal punishment, the complete confiscation of all state and local taxes for the purpose of addressing the debt, the relocation of all military forces to our northern and southern borders, the confiscation of all corporations that either import or export without specific approbation... we are closing the federal reserve, confiscating all banking assets, and introducing an internal fiat currency. And that is just to start but I think it fair to say we can wing it on the rest which, let's face it, is all very simply decided minor issues.

This is what I call a common sense approach... it has worked everywhere throughout the world for hundreds of years. And in fact, it is the only form of governance even remotely possible - as our current state well proves.

I'd be more concerned about the Supreme Court, the rest is just wild speculation.

[-] 0 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

Why worry about the supreme court?
Men of such honor and prestige -
would david & charlie buy anything but the best?

Bombs in 6 countries either way. Goldman Sachs either way.

What about the people running that not only don't support the shit you listed but also don't want to bomb countries or work for Goldman Sachs and the Federal Reserve? Why don't you ever talk about them? Perhaps apathy?

[-] 0 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

Not apathy - just wisdom
I would prefer reasoning to decide on the the king snake
when you make a choice, differences matter
similarities dont

is that not clear to you ?

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

I will not vote for politicians that support a system that wants people like me in prison.

There is a zero percent chance of any human being on this planet getting me to vote for Obama or Romney.

You are not sharing wisdom. You are sharing the system.

It's plenty clear.
