We all need a hug from time to time

If Romney loses again, I predict....

That he will use his wealth to build an underground lair, hire an army of henchmen, and threaten the world with a machine that can control the weather unless he's made president.

Looking forward to the Jim Harbaugh / Urban Meyer games

It's going to be great.

If you don't stand up for freedom of speech, then you are not a Liberal.

If you think that it's okay to kill people over speech, then you are not a Liberal.

Millions of Americans will benefit from lower oil prices. Fuck the energy industry.

Sorry about the guy in ND who is now unemployed, but his pain cannot compare to the millions of American families who will pay lower prices at the pump and lower home heating prices. And, because of this, there will be more money to spend in the overall economy which will create new jobs and new opportunities.

That ND unemployed oil guy will get another job.

Stop coloring the football field

In my day, all football fields were green, and we liked it.



NFLPA grievance: New England Patriots doctor put team ahead of patient

A grievance letter sent by the players’ union cites an e-mail from former team physician Thomas Gill that the NFLPA contends shows Gill telling Patriots owner Robert Kraft and President Jonathan Kraft that he was “trying to put together a case” that would compel former defensive end Jonathan Fanene to return $3.85 million after he suffered a knee injury in 2012. The letter further asserts that Patriots Coach Bill Belichick directed Gill to delay any surgery on Fanene’s knee while an effort was made to persuade the player to retire, thus forgoing his bonus.

Again, if this was the Cowboys, Yankees, Lakers, USC, or any of the DU Sports Forum designated "Teams of Evil", this would be triple posted. BUT, this is a Boston team, and we all know that Boston teams are morally superior to ALL other teams until they are not.

Dear America, you cannot torture and kill everything that scares you.

Being scared is not justification for killing and torturing people, and that goes for both home and abroad.

Moving center-right for the Democrats is a failed strategy.

For many here, the Democratic party has done exactly what you suggested. Run center-right Dems in red states. Run away from the Liberal/Progressive platform and name. Run against Obama (and Clinton when he was president). Appeal to moderates and independents and ignore the Democratic base entirely.

They've done exactly what you've prescribed and look at the map. Look at the results that you're getting. The people in the red states are not as different than the people in the blue states. They want a positive vision of the future for themselves and their families. They want to know how to feed their family. They want jobs that pay better than minimum wage. They want to know how to compete in a global marketplace.

They're not hearing that from the Dems. All that they hear is, "I'm not Obama", "I'm pro-gun", "I'm pro dirty energy", etc. etc. etc.

If Democratic candidates ran on progressive ideas on a consistent basis...

they would win more elections over time than lose. Yes, in individual elections or cycles, they would lose here and there, but over time, they would win more because their ideas would resonate with the people.

For example, if Grimes actually ran against big coal and laid out a vision for a new future for KY free of depending on coal jobs, that would resonate with that 18-22 year old who wants a future other than working in a coal mine.
