Comparing liars, killers and thieves as to which one is better? Now there is a fruitful exercise.

I've spent my adult life in the Democratic party. Stood on corners with signs. Marched in Solidarity. Voted straight Democrat, every election. Never again. Today I registered as an Independent. No more sending checks to the DNC or Democrat political campaigns. I joined a union 29 years ago that always supports the DNC. No more. I withdrew my membership today also. I feel Soooo much better. Please join me in Freedom. No party owns my vote. No party owns me. Vote out ALL Incumbents!

Since no one has been able to show I was wrong about Obama and his Administration, on Monday I will go to the Supervisor of Elections office and change my Party affiliation from Life Long Democrat to Independent. I will vote against Obama even though I voted for him the first time.

Independent is a good choice - as true independents vote issues not party politics.

[-] -1 points by vvv0630 (-63) 2 years ago

"Independent"? What the Hell do YOU know about being "independent", DKAtoday? Like all Quislings, you're a spineless lemming trying to look like a leader by sucking up to whoever you think is the horse that's gonna win. I called you "Mr. Creedy" earlier, and I was being generous when I did: Creedy at least had balls. You're just a forum troll with a hi-def monitor lying in a Tempurpedic bed typing anything and everything you think will help you achieve your goal of 10,000 forum groupthink points - which won't even buy you a cup of burnt-beans coffee at Starbucks. You are, in short, a pathetic little poser. Stop typing, and start getting a life...

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28513) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

vvvshill is U havin a bad day? Good. You post attacks but U post nothing beneficial to the people. You are apparently envious of me - therefore your comparison of me to V. Flattering - but it kinda shows how confused U R.

Your use of creedy to punish me? Silly pathetic to sad.

Change your life so you can feel good about yourself - then perhaps your jealousy/envy of others will go away.

Be positive for humanity and all life.

Leave the Darkside vvvshill.

[-] -2 points by vvv0630 (-63) 2 years ago

Nobody compared you to V, DKAtoday. And you never saw the movie anyway, so you have no clue what the Creedy comparison truly meant.

As is so often the case with you, you just type away with absolutely no clue what you are typing about or who you are insulting. But as long as you have idiots like VQkag2 and MattLHolck to "twinkle" your posts, perhaps that's more appealing than your pathetic real-world existence. So I understand why you do what you do, perhaps, but I still wish you'd do it somewhere else. Does MoveOn.org need more trolls in their forum? If so, I'll be happy to write you a letter of recommendation...

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28513) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

If I had not seen the movie - how would I know that you were masochistically flailing yourself comparing yourself to creedy and projecting your self loathing onto me due to your jealousy?

Seek help vvv - repent of your sins - take some good - prescribed drugs - let the Dr check you into a clinic.

It's not too late for you - miracles I am told do happen.

[-] -2 points by vvv0630 (-63) 2 years ago

Your first sentence again betrays the fact that you have absolutely no clue what you are talking about and the rest of your posting again demonstrates you have no clue who you are talking to. You are in so many ways, and on so many levels, absolutely pathetic.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28513) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

What U think U R someone? U have a tendency to talk in the plural at times - do U think that U R royalty or Demon ridden?

Either way - seek HELP.

[-] -2 points by vvv0630 (-63) 2 years ago

How does one "talk in the plural", Einstein? And yes, I would like some "help" relocating you to some 99% Spring forum where you can circle-jerk with other plastic revolutionaries so we can maybe turn THIS forum into something respectable...

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28513) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

So Sorry - your idea of respectable ( U being an anti people corpoRAT shill as you are ) is not an option. Go speak to the supremacists they are dumb enough to love and worship U.

[-] -2 points by vvv0630 (-63) 2 years ago

Put Up or Shut Up, DKAtoday: If you can objectively prove I am a "corporate shill" do so and I will never post here again. If you cannot, your failure will prove to all that you are the LIAR I already know you to be.

Too Bad So Sad - For U.

I do not care what U do.

Too bad U apparently can not say the same as for your obsession with me.

Continue to shill-on as U R a good example of what is wrong with this country/world - humanityselloutshillvvvrustybuttbrucie pr hack for hire.

George W Obama = 12 years of deleting the bill of rights.

Romney will just be the same continuation of bullshit.

The majority of Americans are convinced these 2 are the only options.

A majority is not necessary to create a third option.

Nixon paid mafia hitmen to kill people.

Question yourself as to how a presidential candidate could possibly get anywhere near the whitehouse, with the criminal connections he had?

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 2 years ago

Question yourself about Obama's conections. But, I'm not nearly as concerned with "conections". All professional politicians have main street and back alley conections. My focus is more towards what has he done and not done.

[-] 1 points by conservatroll (161) 2 years ago

Obama did with Chicago hitmen

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 2 years ago

Can you expand upon that premise?

He carpet-bombed Cambodia, spewed out anti-Semitic slurs and crude misogynistic jokes in the White House and smeared his political opponents with ruthless 'dirty tricks' campaigns.

And, of course, he lied to his country about his involvement in the Watergate scandal and went down in history as America's shiftiest, darkest President.

Given everything that Richard Nixon has been accused of, it's difficult to believe there could be any more skeletons left in his cupboard. But it seems there are.

A new biography by Don Fulsom, a veteran Washington reporter who covered the Nixon years, suggests the 37th U.S. President had a serious drink problem, beat his wife and — by the time he was inaugurated in 1969 — had links going back two decades to the Mafia, including with New Orleans godfather Carlos Marcello, then America's most powerful mobster.

Yet the most extraordinary claim is that the homophobic Nixon may have been gay himself. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behaviour of a notoriously secretive politician.

Fulsom argues that Nixon may have had an affair with his best friend and confidant, a Mafia‑connected Florida wheeler-dealer named Charles 'Bebe' Rebozo who was even more crooked than Nixon.

The book, Nixon's Darkest Secrets, is out next month — by coincidence at the same time as the UK release of a new film directed by Clint Eastwood about another supposed closet gay among Washington's 20th-century hard men.

But while FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover, played in Eastwood's film by Leonardo DiCaprio, allegedly had an affair with his squeaky-clean deputy Clyde Tolson, Nixon's supposed secret paramour was a very different character.

Bebe Rebozo was a short, swarthy, good-looking Cuban-American businessman with a history of failed relationships with women and close alliances with Miami's Mafia chiefs.

Are you familiar at all with Chicago abnd it's "politics"?

[-] 1 points by secnoot (-14) 2 years ago

LBJ carpet bombed Vietnam and it was he who ramped up that war and left that war on the table. Richard Nixon got us out of a war the Democrats got us into. Not saying I think it was not a war we should have fought, but it is a war we should have won by absolutely crushing the enemy.

Really? Mafia? Anyone heard of the Kennedy's?

Drinking? Really? Anyone heard of the Kennedy's?

Nixon gay? Ever heard of Patricia? or Julie and Trish?

Affairs? Really? Anyone heard of the Kennedy's? or Clinton? or FDR? or LBJ?

Yawn. All I know and remember about Richard Nixon was that he ended the war in Vietnam and probably saved me from dying in some jungle in Asia. Say what you want, I will remember him as a good President who made a mistake.

[-] 0 points by Skippy2 (485) 2 years ago

Yes he bombed cambodia, which brought the NV back to the table in paris, yes he was a foul mouthed prez, so was LBJ. Of course Watergate and dirty ticks were used by Nixon. His opponents also used them. But how would anybody prove homosexual relationships like you describe without photos or letters hand written by the participants? I looked at your link. Inferences, inuendo and rumor are exactly the types of proof Joe McCarthy relied on. Am I surprised a politician fom that time period was a foul mouthed bigot with ties to the mob? Not really. Ever heard of Joe Kennedy?

[-] -1 points by OccNoVi (415) 2 years ago

Richard Nixon is a memorable liar. But by way of comparison the country today is polluted daily by the likes of Trump, Romney, Limbaugh and Cheney.

The whole mess reminds me of people in the 1960s, convinced that racial integration was a Supreme Court + communist conspiracy to destroy America.

While the so-called "kill list" is specifically an oversight tool, intended to limit use of the drones, the rest of your list sounds like Nixon -- good management, but heavy handed. Using the Executive Order to spare 800,000 kids would surely please Mr. Jesus Christ.

If you want something scary, here's two doc's:

Romney's Chappaquiddick.

Dartmouth's Professor Valentino surveys Americans, tagged by political party. Page 26 is a killer. Republicans aren't crazy, they've just been lied into believing "nutjob" stuff.

Lord knows how much of this is from Limbaugh and his clones. This qualifies as "communal delusion" territory. 64% of them think Obama was born overseas. Darn..... And these are not stupid people -- same education levels as Democrats and Independents.

[-] 2 points by Skippy2 (485) 2 years ago

The "800,000 kids" you mention do need to be handled diffrently than regular illeagal immigrants. I have no poblem with that outcome. I have a huge problem with governance by decree. We have a separation of powers for very good reasons. Obama is not King of Ameica. I am no Romney fan and as a life long Democrat I am aware of Reps shortcomings. Having voted for Obama once, observed his administation in action, I cant vote for him again.

[-] 1 points by OccNoVi (415) 2 years ago

"Governance by decree" versus non-governance by mindless filibuster (or mindless veto.)

What the GOpers are doing today matches what President James Buchanan did, vetoing every bill. When the South decided to leave the Union, it was during a period of four years of non-governance.

[-] 2 points by Skippy2 (485) 2 years ago

There were bills being worked on by people elected to write laws. Obama was never elected to make/write law. He swore an oath, and violated it.
