This woman does not make any statement nor is there any implication that the Democrat party would! The deal according to her statement would be that the mentioned usual contributors to the Republicans would as their part of the bargain refrain from contributing money to the Republicans in exchange for the President reneging on his public option commitment.

The issue for anybody who can understand what she said is; that under the guise of "health care/insurance/cover the uninsured/bend the cost curve downward" reform, Obama and his gang are plainly selling out the interests of their constituents in exchange for nothing more than the means to perpetuate their own power! It's not now nor has it ever been about helping people or doing the right thing; it is only about positioning for the next election and advantaging one's self and/or disadvantaging one's opponent.

Now of course this is the oldest game in politics, and everybody has done it in the past. The agenda of this present administration is not people but power. This government's "programs" are a means to leverage financial power away from their opponents and redirect it towards themselves. This reality is the basis for Conservatism, less government is best because all government is essentially a "self perpetuating societal cancer" that if not kept in check and allowed to expand unfettered will destroy its host.

This old thread that he started seemed like a great place to welcome him back for the few short hours he has left on this alias.

The title I thought was exceptionally appropriate.

We will likely be able to dig it out again in a week or two... things are slow on the Cape this time of year.

Despite falsehoods to the contrary Billybob was permanently banned after recieveing 5 infractions for using the word "tool" in a light hearted back and forth with Paul C/Benz Fan on October 15, 2011

http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/open-discussion/103577-did-open-discussion-just-disappear-13.html#post2810875

After waiting out the requisite six months of that ban and attempting to return under that moniker for about 10 days it was clear that a permanent ban was in effect. After that point alternative forum profiles have been utilised because BillyBob is inoperative.

Little or no attempt is made to alter or disguise the style or substance of posts, as is clear in many postings hypocricy, lies and stupidity are targets to be exposed in the course of rational and honest discourse. It is perfectly understandable why this is such a threat to so many!

I recall the days when even some people who today openly complain to moderators once openly decried the complaining to moderators, right Kerry?

Jefferson Airplane - We Can Be Together (live 1970) - YouTube

We can be together
Ah you and me
We should be together
We are all outlaws in the eyes of America
In order to survive we steal cheat lie forge **** hide and deal
We are obscene lawless hideous dangerous dirty violent and young
We should be together
Come on all you people standing around
Our life's too fine to let it die and
We should be together
All your private property is
Target for your enemy
And your enemy is
We
We are forces of chaos and anarchy
Everything they say we are, we are
And we are very
Proud of ourselves
Up against the wall
Up against the wall(mother****er)
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Come on now together
Get it on together
Everybody together
We should be together
We should be together my friends
We can be together
We will be
We must begin here and now
A new continent of earth and fire
Tear down the walls
Come on now gettin' higher and higher
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Won't you try

I'm well aware of my opinions on crybabying. So far I haven't seen any crybabying going on today, just some unmasking of deception. Maybe I've missed some posts.

Unless of course you count your own crybabying about deception?

And what's the deception, and older profile is functionally unavailable so a newer profile is created to achieve functional access? The motivation is functionality where is the evidence of a deception motivation?

Maybe I completely misunderstand your openness and honesty. I was assuming that WilliamRobert was available as a screen name.
