    Nah, these are the Republican commandments:

    Thou shalt oppose any taxes on the rich (but taxes on anybody else are fine)

    Thou shalt support war anywhere, anytime, except maybe if a Democrat started it

    Thou shalt, however, not volunteer to fight in said war

    Thou shalt condone discrimination and religious bigotry, as long as it’s your friends doing it

    Thou shalt bash blacks, hispanics, gays, Muslims, immigrants, single mothers, the poor, and anybody else who probably can’t fight back too well

    Thou shalt strictly enforce and hold sacred any law that regulates the above groups, e.g. immigration law, abortion restrictions — but laws which restrict the rich and powerful can and shalt be ignored

    Thou shalt pander to religious bigots, for few others can be conned into supporting a party whose goal is to make the rich richer and the poor poorer

    Thou shalt support smaller government, if you’re talking about the parts that actually help people; other parts like the military/espionage complex can keep getting larger

    Honor thy campaign donors and super-PAC funders

    Thou shalt place party politics above the welfare of the country, about which you don’t really care much anyway

    Great list, can I copy that?

    I think the Democrats are far more willing to compromise than the Republicans. Of course compromise does not mean giving in, abandoning all of your wants or not fighting for what you believe in. But I saw a Bennett cartoon some time ago, the Republican said to Obama, I’ll move if you do. Obama thought for a moment and moved two steps closer. The evil Republican smirked and stepped two steps farther away. That IS the Republican idea of “compromise.”
    ‘You move closer I move farther right. We repeat until you are where I was initially and I will complain that I’m giving in and you won’t compromise.’

    This is hilarious. Toles, in one of those rare cases when he is capable of making a balanced observation, posts a nonpartisan cartoon. And they usual libs come here with their usual partisan tripe.

    It is natural for people to hate those that are destroying their country, you are correct in asking everyone to do it, but I think this toon is pointing the finger at both sides.

    Yeah the Republicans have stalled everything for 7 years so its obviously bipartisan.

    Naturally, you and The Dick will be happy to point out the traitors like, say, those who did not want us to invade Iraq.

    No compromise is an ideology. When you have one it rules you.

    Politics is supposed to be about compromise, as it’s written to in fact in the Constitution and other rules and documents. Religions are about NO COMPROMISE, in the vast majority, and in ALL “bible” relgions, ‘cause it’s written into the book.

    Unfortunately, one party has redefined “compromise” as “you give me everything I want and I’ll think of more things to want”.

    Want a hint? Think of the guy who said “I got 98% of what I wanted” and was immediately excoriated for not getting the other two percent.
