14. Yup


we see things differently. I saw that when it was originally broadcast and several times since and usually go into a funk thinking people fall for this. Or maybe I just think differently or am too progressive for the main stream Democrats.

Mostly, those bills were all that were left after those "controlled" entities were allowed to insert/re-write their own versions. If you really look at all that the legislation you'll see that VERY little changed or there were amendments that allowed those same entities to skirt the new laws. All the big boys got their way, what we got were watered down versions of good ideas. Look at healthcare, just a typical example, what was proposed and what he acquiesced to created this mess we have today. Credit card companies, come on. Hate crimes, grey area, Trayvon Martin. Stand your ground. Etc etc,
But the perceptions do make for a feel good moments.
