1. I sincerely hope this Conservatism never

comes to Canada. Unfortunately, our current Prime Minister is a right wing nut job that could not have this shit imported to Canada fast enough.

him and run him out on a rail before he can institute American political policies into Canad's governmental process. The U.S. would be a much better place today if we Americans had done that to Ronnie Ray Gun when he was first elected to the office of P.o.T.U.S. in 1980. Just sayin'.

They're a party of mean-spirited, uncaring and selfish people who kick everyone to the curb when they feel those people don't have any value.

Now this is something those in the pulpits should get up and brag on, my goodness, this is another example to dump the GOP's. There is not anything they are ashamed to put on their platform. I will be writing my Congress members.

20. At moments like this

. . . it is difficult to tell whether the evil is individual Republicans or the collective GOP itself.

What is the city but the people? (Coriolanus, 3.1.198). The Republican Party is only its individual members. I guess that answers the question.

Bob Dole was a strong supporter of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and helped pass it when he was in the Senate.

43. Thanks for that. Bob Dole is (and was) a decent guy on this issue.

My father felt strongly that support for the ADA had to be bipartisan for it to get thru Congress and into law, and he worked
with any, be it Dole or AG Dick Thornburgh or any Republican. He was very pleased that so many finally came on board, and Bush signed it, that glorious day on the South Lawn.

hence defense has no basis in reality. saying Christian Senators blocked this treaty to prevent furthur abortions from happening in other countries. Fuck even Rick Santorum didn't go that far. Yeah okay fine. if it makes yall feel better pretend it had to do with abortions but it didn't. Fairly sure there's a special place in hell these idiots are going.
