How Conservatives and the GOP Destroyed the "Traditional Family" They Claim to Treasure

The greatest threat to the American family is economic stress -- and the modern-day Republicans and social conservatives who preach family values are the ones who have done the most to imperil the American family.

The Main Point

What broadcasters say or don't say doesn't matter in the end. The only thing that interests me is how can the Democrats retain a majority in Congress and continue to have a Democratic administration in the White House, and how can the Democrats be made to pass legislation that allows citizens to survive and prosper regardless of their health circumstances, level of social status, or occupational background.

MR JUSTIN LOVE

YOU ANNOUNCED THAT YOU HAVE 50 OR 60 MILLION LISTNERS. THIS SOUNDS LIKE A LIE AND BS TO ME. EVERY THING ELSE YOU SAY MUST ME LIES AS WELL. I HAVE TUNED IN FROM THE FIRST DAY OF THE PROGRESSIVE PROGRAMMING. SINCE YOU KEEP HARPING ON FOX; I HAVE SWITCHED DIALS ONCE IN A WHILE AND LIKE WHAT I HEAR. I FEEL LIKE A TRAITOR TO AMERICA AND DIRTY WHEN I HEAR YOU NOW. I AM A REAL LIBERAL BUT YOU LOOK LIKE AN ICKY PERVERT WHO USES THE AMERICAN WORKER TO MAKE YOU RICH.

Where have all the people gone

Long time passing . . . unless they, we, I wake up to our own unlimited capacity to love and to create. Spirituality is all about connection. The mystical core of all religions talk about being connected to everyone and everything. It's as though nothing's changed since Jesus' time. The money changers and corrupt, power hungry officials are in charge.

So, forgive them Father, they know not what they do. And how do the rest of us work together to create the world we want to see?

I think they're using the wrong word - should be sociopath, but it's dead-on!

mr love

My office has listen to you from the very first day the program began. We do not touch the dial.

You have mentioned Fox so many many times that we tuned in to the network to find out what you are saying about them.

We took a vote and 15 to 3 agreed we should keep listning to Fox. Now when we turn you back on we sort of feel dirty.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
