So they vote down the infrastructure bill(breaking)
And they wonder why OWS will continue to grow.

5. they must be.
they still think this obstructionism will get them the white house back next year. me, i think they're digging their own grave and the democrats will score amazingly big in 2012. as long as the vote gets out and the thieves don't get away with it, anyway.

8. Excellent point: Beware of demagogues like Robespierre
Robespierre was more concerned about some silly phantom he called "revolutionary virtue" than rebuilding France after the fall of the Bourbons. Under the concept of revolutionary virtue, supporters of the revolution, including members of the General Assembly, were as bad as royalists if they simply weren't fanatical enough in their support for the revolution or their hatred of monarchy.

Instead of democracy, the French Revolution ended by replacing tyrant Kings with a tyrant Emperor. Some virtue.

7. Got A Link?
Don't see this on CNN or MSNBC yet.

One of my Uncles is a big GOP'er but also a city planner/engineer and is always posting on his Facebook about spending on infrastructure. Love to remind him that the party he supports is the party that's voting down spending on infrastructure.
