About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

If the GOP filabusters Hagel does that mean we get a Democrat as SecDef? and who?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Saturday that there’s a chance Republicans will filibuster former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel’s nomination as secretary of defense.

“Sen. Hagel did not do a very good job before the Armed Services committee,” McConnell told Kentucky reporters. (Hagel struggled in the Senate committee hearing, appearing unprepared for aggressive questions about Iran, Israel and nuclear weapons.) “I think the opposition to him is intensifying. Whether that means he will end up having to achieve 60 votes or 51 is not clear yet.” McConnell did not say how he planned to vote.

A filibuster against Hagel would be unprecedented. A Cabinet nominee has never been defeated by filibuster, although nominees have been voted down by a majority (John Tower was the first in three decades) or pulled over scandal or opposition (Tom Daschle, Bernard Kerik).....

When did this become The Puritan Underground.com?

I would expect all this Beyonce sexy outfit bashing at conservative websites but not here.
I thought we were more accepting of people and their choices in this community.
Just shocked we have so many who want to fight the "sins of the modern world" here.
This feels more like an argument for foxnews or one the freepers would rail about IMHO.
