    The worst ideal of the political suicide set aka Tea Party fundamentalists in charge of the Republican party.

    You know, MS58, you teapartiers are partly right except for one major thing: The government is NOT the problem. The problem is the corruption of our government by corporations and the wealthy.

    The Koch Brothers’ funded Tea Party will do their bidding and reduce taxes on the rich and screw the poor. Don’t pretend it is anything more than it is: it’s no new movement. It is the old, mostly white, mostly male, hard core of the old Republican Party with more marketing.

    What was incoherent about Omnius’ comment? can you provide any rational reason why some are so set against the actions of President Obama that they themselves will destroy this country instead of even considering his requests, modifying them and then exacting laws that may help America? And why should he/she/it be bounced when indeed you have been much worse and you are still here?
    IF GoComics is liberal and you don’t like, buh-bye. Don’t let the door hit’cha where the good Lord splitcha.

    As I understand it the tea party was originally an unknown movement. A true grass roots local movement that no one knew about and no one cared about beyond their tiny, tiny little circle of influence. Then the Koch brothers found it, co-opted it and the rest is exactly as you wrote. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. The sheep was the original, small and local tea party. The wolf is the wealthy industrialists hell-bent on forcing this country to their demands to be able to pillage and plunder at will with no regulations, no protections for the people or the environment we require to live.

    “He spent three years on healthcare reform legislation that two out of three Americans do not want…

    I wonder if its because people don’t understand what it is (as is the case) or if its right wingers spreading misinformation (as is also the case).

    ”We are over-regulated, over-taxed, overwhelmed and under- represented as a people"

    Taxes have been the lowest since the great depression, regulations have been so laxed that we had a housing crisis, a financial crisis, and a jobs crisis as a result, and we have privatized the way we set up our elections. Why is it that you guys can’t see what’s happening around you? These have been problems long before Obama took office, yet you guys can’t say anything other than its his fault.

    I am getting sick of your whining and complaining because everyone doesn’t agree with you. If you are so upset because there are more left leaning cartoonists on GoComics than there are right leaning, get faux to start a comics site. You can bet there would be nothing but CONservative cartoonists there. Or here’s a concept, work at it yourself. you seem to have plenty of party approved and provided moments of verbal diarrhea, parlay them into party approved cartoons. Obviously they don’t have to be funny, or factual (as evidenced by some on both sides of the spectrum) they simply have to inflame or excite the political bases.
    All it takes is some effrot, but that in itself will keep many of you RWNJs from doing anything about it. You aren’t interested in making things better, just detracting from the progress of others. You are so filled with hatred of anyone else getting more or better than you that you are willing to destroy ti for all instead of allowing anyone to benefit more than yourself. The difference between this and what you accuse the Democrats and the “takers” of, they don’t begrudge those who “make it,” they just want everyone to have some, some will have more and that’s fine. To the contrary with your type, if everything isn’t just exactly as you demand it, id anyone you don’t like has more, you are willing to destroy the whole in order to deny the few you don’t like of anything.
    So in short, if you don’t like the slant of the comics here on GoComics, work to change that by either recruiting new Conservative cartoonists, WORK by creating a ‘toon of your own, or work to develop/find a site that does propagate the right-wing editorial cartoons you approve of. But no matter what you do you will have to work, so you are likely to do nothing but continue to try and destroy what is good, because all you can do is whine, cry and complain because IT doesn’t completely conform to your ideas, beliefs and demands, your partisan propagandist approved ideas, beliefs and demands.

    The reason the government doesn’t work properly is that one of the parties doesn’t want it to work properly. I’ve never understood voting for someone who says they can’t do anything.

    “Wow. You just fed the troll a whole banquet .”
    Yeah….I know. I’m sorry. I thought about that later. I wonder though how he’s still here with the caliber of his comments, but I suppose replying to it only makes it grow.

    Who is holding up a continuing resolution and the budget over a single program and unwilling to negotiate any postion other than full funding…? Which party refuses to put Obamacare on hold for a year even after that same party handed out waivers to political supporters like party favors?

    I don’t see this being a Republican problem but rather a Democrat one.

    Who is holding up a continuing resolution and the budget over a single program and unwilling to negotiate any postion other than full *de*funding…?

    One chamber of one branch of government has decided to oppose the will of the other chamber, the President & the Supreme court by rolling back a law they hate.

    Giving businesses a year to get ready for the ACA wasn’t a party favor, it was accepting the reality that many small businesses weren’t ready. Conservative partisans like to overlook the fact that anyone who has a job that doesn’t offer them insurance can sign up through the exchanges.

    There are aspects of the ACA that are negotiable, such as allowed plans, amounts of subsidies, getting states off the hook for providing Medicaid spending not funded by the Federal government and much, much more. They have chosen not to go down that road.

    IMO, this is because they know that once it’s in place, it will be as popular & untouchable as Social Security & Medicare.

    I know you can come up with better comments than 5th grade insults.

    Let’s assume for a moment that the Tea Party sincerely believes that the ACA is a threat to the ‘rugged individualism’ that is part of our national DNA. I disagree, but I think of them as misinformed and mislead, not as traitors. I prefer to leave that kind of smear to the Ann Coulters of the world.

    It’s just ‘way too easy to pin the blame for the dysfunction of our bloated government on the vague, nebulous an’ unnamed anonymous ‘corporations and the wealthy.’

    Get real. Although they prefer to remain anonymous by hiding behind 501( c)4 entities, it’s pretty obvious that there is a small group of people who have a much bigger voice than most. I’ll even admit that they’re not all conservatives.

    You lie. The government has gotten a lot smaller since Obama took charge, and it’s been very, very bad for the economy.
