Article from MSNBC
Summary: "Democrats picked off a heavily Republican upstate New York congressional seat Tuesday night in a special election that became a referendum on Medicare."
New York hangs onto the premise that the Democratic promise of spreading the wealth still has promise. Too bad...
Guess New York will be one of the first states to fall into unsustainable governance... Long live New York!
Dont know anything about this, however if this was a Republican district, does this mean that the Rats have cheated again? (Fraud?)
NY loves their spend and taxers.
This statement should be placed on their license plates and quarters.
The TEA party guy was a fake and he Perot’d the Pub.
I guess we touched the 3rd rail and all these voters who said they wanted to cut spending changed their minds when they realized it might slow down their own personal gravy trains.
I thought I read that she did not meet the residency requirements. Oh. Wait. She’s a Dim and does not need to follow the rule of law.
"How do the flyover zones keep the zombies in the Urban areas when all hell happens and the cities collapse?"
No need to worry... Those City zombies will stay in their comfort zone and the outside world will remain safe...heh.
They will then collapse upon themselves without support of the outside farmers (no food). As usual, the outsiders will always prevail - God, guns, food, and beliefs...
"The fact that a TEA Party candidate saw a need to run suggests that Corwin wasn't the most conservative card in the pack. Maybe if NY Repubs would run REAL Republicans, they'd win."
Oh BS. The TEA Party candidate (Davis) has run repeatedly as a Democrat and is an uber liberal on almost every issue. There was not a thing wrong with Corwin, and the fact that Bellavia, the candidate many TEA Party folks preferred, went on to endorse an obvious lefty shows the NY GOP nominated the right person. The majority of TEA Party organizations supported Corwin, not Davis.
The politicians are just a symptom of the problem. We have met the enemy, and the enemy is us. The people are the problem. We have to be honest with ourselves. Look around. Do you think the fat slobs riding their motorized chairs down to the 7-11 to buy lottery tickets are interested in personal responsibility, hell no. Everybody wants something for nothing. That is the truth today. This election is significant. It means that we are headed for the cliff, and the brakes are gone. There is no hope. The majority is a bunch of goat ropers and freeloaders. We are all destined to drive our cars with our handicapped sticker down to the government office to pick up our government checks which we will then spend on lottery tickets.
Progressive stinkin Obama lovers are saying this is a sign of what 2012 will be like. They will run with this for 6 days in the news while Obama sells out Israel to terrorists and gives them an office in DC on our dime. How brain dead are the NY jewish democrat progressives?
Barack Obama is president partly because when the stock market crashed in ‘08, his opponent acted first and rashly suspended his campaign. Obama sat on the sidelines doing nothing... and was rewarded.
Now, the Repubs have acted first again without thinking through all the consequences, and the Dems are reaping the benefits, for nothing.
It’s time for Conservatives to go on the offensive, and drop all the earnest attempts to “save the country” stuff. Addressing entitlements is much too difficult (and politically dangerous) a task for inarticulate squishes like the current Repub leadership.
Medicare is dead. Just view it as a tax and a cost of doing business in 21st-century America.
Freedom-loving and self-sufficient Americans will just have to outrun the coming collapse. Work as hard as you can, live frugally, stay healthy as possible and save as much money as you can so that you can pay CASH for healthcare in the future when the system collapses.
It’s pretty clear that a huge chunk of Americans obviously aren’t interested in freedom anymore. SCREW ‘EM. I’m planning ahead and will be waltzing right past them in the government healthcare waiting line with a fistful of cash.
Cold? You bet. But it looks like that’s the way it’s going to have to be.
A Democrat being elected by the idiots in NY is as much “news” as a Democrat being elected by the idiots in Chicago or California. YAWN.
It may be a Republican district, but, as we all know, that is a far cry from a conservative. My inlaws are in the Buffalo area and they tend to be very conservative in theory but when they go to the ballot box, they are as liberal as it gets.
Thank God other states are protecting us from NYC’s love of tyrants. If Cuba wants to annex them, I’m all for it.
“Let’s face it, the majority of people in this country are morons.”
I’ve said it once and will say it again: New Yorkers are far more gullible than your typical country “bumpkin”. They are rubes. They are almost as gullible as people who live in Detroit. Their city is attacked on 9-11 and they STILL vote democrat. How stupid is that? Their brains shut off when it comes to politics. Ancient Athenians had a word for people like typical New Yorkers — idiots.
--- Yeah! I mean, they voted Obama into office and all he did was kill Osama Bin Laden. Obviously after 9/11 they should have become a permenant Republican majority.
New Yorkers are such idiots, they elected Bloomberg for crying out loud.
--- I know this is confusing but BUFF-A-LO is this large city in the NORTH of the state, whereas NEW YORK CITY is the city in... forget it.
New York city, Bloomberg’s city — the city that doesn’t care if wacko democrats get control AFTER 9-11 blows its largest skyscrapers to smitherines ... you think THAT is a bell-weather state?
Love the guy who wanted to know how the Democrat won the "Republican district". Not sure how he thinks voting works or even why we do it.ReplyDelete

I complete agree with this sentiment, actually. TEAbaggers/Hardcore Cons wanting all these great government programs without paying taxes. Taxes are evil and only benefit welfare queens, but the moment my property takes a little storm damage, it's "whur FEMA gimme gimme! Keep your government hands off my Medicare" and all that.
Jeramy, I mostly added in that comment because I think it's hilarious that their description of a entitlement-addicted liberal is fairly similar to most people's description of how they view the average TEA party member or Freeper.ReplyDelete
So is "goat roper" one of their oh so clever code phrases? And if so, what does it mean?ReplyDelete
I don't even see ACORN mentioned once in there.ReplyDelete
