3. I have a two part question:
1) why did you change from Democrat to Republican AFTER being elected to the Senate?

2) why didn't the Freeps freak out with you like they did with Leahy?

(Never mind, I know the answer to the second one)

13. Hey, the guy has cancer
He's the friend of my Native American cousin (who is a county commissioner-and a lifelong Dem). Yes, a lot of people in the Native American community were unhappy about him changing parties, but he's no where near as villainous as this ugly thread has painted him out to be.

16. The Guy IS A Cancer
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 03:25 PM by CO Liberal
A cancer on humanity - a sorry excuse for a human being, and someone who deserves any ill furtune that comes his way.

He took money from the Democratic Party to win his Senate seat, and then defected without returning a DIME of what he took under false pretences. He turned his back on Colorado and its people, and fell in lock-step with what the Republican leadership told him to do. He's a useless piece of shit who deserves no respect whatsoever.

65. (breaks character) So am I, I am a Native American too
I'm sorry to say this, but Nighthorse is a traitor, he went from progressive Dem to neo-con cheerleader over the 12 years. He has single-handidly enabled Bush to neglect the issues that are most important to the Native American cause, and I think that he's drunk the Kool-Aid and I doubt there will be a return.

And I don't think that was nice either, I don't believe in wishing death on people. I just hope that Mr. Nighthorse goes back to his house and thinks long and hard about the devestation that he has brought to his people.

59. I don't endorse his actions, but I trust that there's some good
left in him if he still shows respect for my cousin, a very liberal Dem. She has been working to bring him back to the light side. If she would wish a long and painful death on him for his mistake, how would she be any different from those on the other side? What would it accomplish?

38. Ben, that's in theory. In reality the Republicans are not taxing but
spending like crazy.

We are so far into the hole Ben, that we have just defaulted on 40% of the trillion dollar foreign debt. What do you propose that we do Ben?

Why the emperor has no clothes
Posted Jan 11, 2005 06:59 AM PST
Category: ECONOMY
Uncle Sam has reneged and defaulted on up to 40% of its trillion-dollar foreign debt, and nobody has said a word except for a line in The Economist. In plain English that means Uncle Sam runs a worldwide confidence racket with his self-made dollar based on the confidence that he has elicited and received from others around the world, and he is a also a deadbeat in that he does not honor and return the money he has received.

BTW.. Ben, if you are a real conservative republican, you should be really pissed off at this radical administration and their spend thrift ways. Many conservatives have seen the light. Maybe you should too.

74. I remember I was on a Radio show hosted by A Right Wing Nut
the night Nighthorse switched parties...

Literally, it came over the wire and the host turns to me and says, well, Mr. Green, it really looks as if your party is falling apart right around your ears (never understood exactly what he meant by that, but hey it was his show). What do you have to say?

I paused for just a second and said, Well, it looks like you guys are going to have to start calling them Native Americans now.....

He busted out laughing and we went on to the next topic....

I know it was crass, but hey, it was spur of the moment.....
