According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

LEFT (LIBERAL)
Liberals usually embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support significant government control of the economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net" to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations, defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

Editing to share some memories from Osan AB, ROK, The Pentagon and The Philippines (R&R)









The GOP meme that the midterms were a referendum on President Obama is bullshit

That's merely them trying to tarnish his legacy before his term as even ended. Everyone who voted for Republicans were people who always hated Democrats and the President.

With his supporters (who are the majority, thank you very much), his legacy is safe and sound.

The midterms, if anything, were a confirmation that our entire political system has been sabotaged by decades of voter disenfranchisement. It began with the Republicans, of course, just check out the Powell Memo. But Big Money decided to play both sides against the middle and have infiltrated Democrats as well, by a much smaller extent, of course.

Never forget that whatever the President does or doesn't do, the Republicans are always going to say that he's wrong. His executive actions will be depicted as "tyranny," even if they are all precedented. His public statements will be called "narcism," even if he speaks in terms of "we" and "us" instead of "me" and "I." Everything that they think up will be used to lodge non-existent scandals against him, even if they investigate those so-called "scandals" and find that they have no merit. Crazy wingers will take those fantasies and run with them, even if they have no proof outside of their own heads that he's ever done anything wrong. And most of all, when you regard everything that they do, it proves that just about all of them are pretty fucking racist. (If you're having a bit of problem with me classifying all of them as racist, I'm prepared to debate that point.)

Most of all, the things that they say about the President only exists within their own echo chamber, for their own benefit.

Living in the real world for them is an anathema. It's just plenty sickening to see that they've poisoned the well for everyone else as well.

Many Thanks...

The next couple of years are going to suck...

There's no way to get around it. So, we need to learn to embrace the suck, as it were. There's a difference between NOTING all of the reprehensible shit that Republican Congresscritters will be up to while they're busy trying to start unnecessary wars, destroying the environment, enriching the already rich at the expense of everyone else, attempting to murder people by proxy by repealing the ACA, saying crazy shit and doing everything that they can to destroy a very popular President… AND completely losing our shit about it.

But it just doesn't matter.

What matters is coming together and organizing and working very hard to pick up all of the pieces of what they are sure to break during their time at the reins. Frankly, I'm not in the mood to listen to bitching and moaning because President Obama hasn't yet started to wear tie-dye suits and hugging every tree he comes across. We lefties just LOVE to bitch about the people we put in to public office who hold the label of "Democratic," but that shit can get real tedious real quick.

We're in full suck mode right now and Debbie Downering ain't helping.

We've got less that two years to get our shit together for the big stage… No matter WHO gets to carry our water in November 2016, we stand a much better chance if we all put away our differences and stand together as one party.

Let's leave the back-biting and bitching and moaning to the wingers, shall we? I don't know about you, but I'm going to be all about drinking their tears, as we KEEP the White House and take back Congress in a full court sweep in 2016.



Until then, we should learn our lessons, take our lumps, pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again.

How many of you miserable so-and-sos are with me? I leave you with the word of that great motivational speaker, Bill Murray to give you all a moment of inspiration.

Enjoy.
