With papers, of course.
Nope, full citizenship.
Obama: "Congress won't act. So I am going to act."
I'm sure people never considered you a slow learner, Harvard man. Huh.
nationalizing the banks would have been cheaper but "socialist"
Macacawitz : Rick Perry's suit last night looked like it was designed to repel steer feces. I'm so glad you mentioned this.
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK is up with his high-collared shirts? Don't tell me that that shit is coming back.~~~and

Heck, they just love minorities in Arizona.
OK, how about the North West. Or California. Or, hey, I'd really love to have lots of Jews in Northern Maine, we might actually turn into the liberal state that so many believe we are.
I had my annual pastrami sandwich yesterday, too.
I'd love to have more Jews living in the United States. I wish they'd offered emigration here as an alternative to the disaster that putting Israel in Palestine has caused. Taking a piece out some place like Arizona if a state was desired would have been a better idea.
Only the ideological ancestors of the End Timers would have prevented that happening.
Oh, I'm sure the Jews would have been welcomed in Arizona with open arms.
Unlike they were in Palestine, you mean?
See, now you're actually starting to piss me off.
Seriously, I'd love to have a few million more Jews in the United States, one of the most progressive constituencies in the country, great philanthropists, brilliant disuptationists. Living here in relative safety and security. What could possibly be objectionable to that? The Likudniks would come to, or maybe not if those with a history of terrorism were excluded.
Anybody know how to say "keep digging" in French?
Continuez à creuser?
R. McGeddon, futilitarian My solution has always been to move Israel to Florida.
And while we're at it, the Gypsies need a homeland too.
I think there's an abandoned shopping mall in Jersey they could have.
The gypsies could run the concessions at the theme park, Holy-Land.
Can't understand messaging, can't play this game. Rails against "Washington" and "bureaucrats" and "government regulations" like the best Republican around. Praises Republican governors.
Then asks people to vote for Democrats. WTF, man. WTF.
He keeps pandering to the people who'll keep on hating him with increasing contempt. While alienating the people who liked him.
Isn't one definition of insanity the persistent re-trying of something that keeps failing?
Had a girlfriend like that once. Treat her badly and she'd do anything in her power to win you over. Be nice to her and she got bored and took you for granted.
Not exactly healthy.
Rhoda Mendelbaum? You dated her too?
The only thing surprising about Elizabeth Warren's last two weeks is that she was the only one who had the guts to say what had to be said.
What's going to be surprising to a lot of people is how popular real populism is with people. Go figure.
It was originally going to be called French Tower.
Washington pols running against Washington is pretty nauseating.
How about reframing the message, jerks? Government is nothing more than the people's way of getting big jobs done. Period. It's all of us working together to clean our environment, build our roads and bridges, educate our children, provide for our old age, etc.
Why does Rick hate our seamen?
I love you.:-)
Obama, referring to a teacher: "Now he'll get to spend his time teaching, instead of bureaucratic mandates from Washington that don't get results!"
Goddamn Washington. I hate Washington. And bureaucrats. Hate 'em.
Yeah, you found out about all those people who were cooking the test scores.
Can't say as I ever thought much of "No Child Left Behind."
Not looking forward to the Freedom tower or whatever we're calling it.
100 years from now people will say - "did you know people called it ugly when it was first built!?"
Yes, yes we did.
Not crazy bout the name at all. But I like the building. The tall one. Not the other one.
People reviled the World Trade towers while they were around -- they were incredibly ugly and ruined the skyline.
Steve Simels : I think the national Dem party will do everything they can to make sure Warren's influence doesn't extend beyond Massachusetts.
Call me cynical, but I think the Obama DLC wing finds her message actively abhorrent. I agree with you entirely. I'm surprised that she's getting ANY traction in MA - the Obama camp hated her in Washington.~~~
Warren's populist message terrifies the corporatist DLC types.
She might hurt a big donor's feefees!
I can guaran-damn-tee you the DLC and the national party will try to starve her campaign of oxygen, like they did Alan Grayson and Ned Lamont.
You are correct, sir.
So now he's a tough guy. Okay, it's a start.
Yes, we should encourage whatever good behavior we get.
Anybody see Jon Stewart last night?
His solution to the problems in the Middle East?
A spelling change. From now on it's Palestein.:-)
Dr. Murray Palestein.
My solution has always been to move Israel to Florida.
We call ourselves Halestinians, sometimes.
