6 Reasons There’s No Such Thing As Compassionate Conservatism
Conservatives worship Ayn Rand, who said it was morally wrong to help people. How’s that for compassionate?
The word is out that Republicans are attempting to rebrand themselves as compassionate conservatives (again). “Compassionate conservatism” is a term that typically comes up after Republicans have taken things to such an extreme that the country is revolted and tries to push them and their nasty ideology of greed and hate aside. George W. Bush famously resorted to using this term to campaign for president after Republicans disgraced themselves with anti-Clinton conspiracy theories, witch hunts and the unpopular impeachment.

RECORD FOR WORST CONGRESS OF ALL TIME SO CLOSE BOEHNER CAN TASTE IT
POSTED BY ANDY BOROWITZ
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—With six fingers of Johnnie Walker swirling in his favorite tumbler, John Boehner speaks with the quiet assurance of a man on the brink of something big.
Just three workdays remain until Congress packs it in for 2013, and the House that Boehner presides over is about to set the record for the least productive year in its history—a quixotic goal that the tawny Ohioan set for himself when he arrived in Washington, in 1991.
“Like most of us, I came to this town hoping to make history,” he says, refilling his tumbler. “And, damn it, that’s what I’m about to do.”

My thoughts on Tim McDonald Director of Community, The Huffington Post.
Tim I think someone one your team has duped you good. Why didn’t anyone on your team tell you, Timmy this is folly” did someone tell you this is a great idea? If so then you have met the chest-master who will be taking over your job—Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
also to Maj and RF..I am not able to find Tim`s email…Highly appreciate if anyone would provide me with that.
Good morning, I can’t find it but I’m certain someone posted it here: https://jackholesrealm.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/on-huffpo-was-it-over-when-the-japanese-bombed-pear-harbor/
Thx..Jack…I tried back and forth this morning. I think RF would know..I ask him when I see him later..
Good morning, sweet Bebe! I found his addy elsewhere:

Best of luck.

Somehow I feel relaxed…

Hi Bebe, just out of curiosity, how do you know I am turning my fan list to zero. Where do you go to find this information ?
Actually I use the email..I log in there…and the irony is my email is in my name not a fake one..they deserve what was coming ti them.
maybe it’s the typical model of “Hey,,,I have an idea,,,what do you guys think??”
And all the dolts sitting around table nod their little pumpkin heads “We Love IT!!”
