This Picture Says it All as to Why I Will be Supporting Virginia


I hope everyone realizes how important it is to be the person standing at the right hand of the Speaker.  With certainty, I can tell you that after Virginia, we will never have another congressperson at that level.  I grew up in Washington.  All my housemates were in significant positions on the Hill.
I spent a lot of time with them and I can tell you, only a handful of congress  people reach this pinnacle.  To those who cannot let the good a person does outweigh the bad, all I can say is I am glad my wife doesn't apply that criteria to me.  I would be out in the cold if she did.

I don't care where this RINO stands. She sold out sportswomen and men during the Blowing Rock Land Trade. Both her and fellow sell out Ryan need to get unelected. I'll not vote for a RINO like Foxx, Burr, or Ryan again. THEY bear as much responsibility as the Dumbocrats for putting you where you are right now!! Also, they didn't exactly fight political correctness. Wake up folks.

Blogger, I'll just say standing at the right hand of the speaker means nothing to me.

Do you actually think she read the 2000 pages before voting? What she voted for in that trillion dollar budget is to be paid for with some of "my" money. If you think people around here don't have a problem with her agreeing to fund abortions for planned parenthood, you are very wrong. She didn't have to cast a vote. She's lost her way...big time.

Maybe the dems will keep her in office.

USS RY: I am ignorant about the BR Land Trade situation. If you will be so kind, please fill me in. And I agree with you about her - a very big disappointment.

You vote for her because she stands next to Ryan? Do you even realize that she and Ryan just voted to fund planned parenthood, Obamacare, etc? You do know that they just voted to continue to give income tax "refunds" to people who don't pay income tax?

But, you will vote for her because she stands next to the Speaker?

You can't be serious.

Anonymous 1:15,please don't ask them to go back to the BR Land Trade. It happened years ago and they have been perseverating ever since. Like the proverbial turtles who just can't let go.

Anonymous 2:33 of course I am serious. First of all, they were signing the bill to dismantle Obamacare which was the first one to finally get to the president's desk. That act is a signal of a whole new day under Ryan. The budget bill was something he inherited and unless you wanted to see a majority of the country in a rage again blaming the Republicans for shutting down the government, it just had to be.

We are incredibly favored. Foxx is in the leadership. Burr heads up the most important committee of our time--Intelligence. If you don't understand how incredible those two achievements are, you just have a lot to learn about how things really work. Go study seniority in Congress. If we replaced them, we would then only have impotent back benchers.

Blogger, I would prefer to have someone on the back bench who voted my way instead of someone who votes to support the Obama aganda. The vote on dismantling Obamacare that seems to have you fooled, is accomplishing it's purpose. It's a show vote.
Foxx gave away the store with the budget bill. Now she panders to you and a few other sheep with a vote on a bill that has already been vetoed and has almost no chance of becoming law.

So glad to see Blogger take on those uncompromising zealots who would rather see a total government takeover by the ultra left than support a conservative who doesn't have, in their eyes, a perfect voting record. These folks apparently have no concept of how government and politics function in contemporary America. Our entire system is based on checks, balances and compromises and until conservatives control all three branches of government, especially the courts, we will be unable to force all our conservative priorities on our political opponents.

Successful conservative politicians such as Virginia Foxx, Richard Burr and Paul Ryan have the experience and knowledge to take the best that we can get under present circumstances, and live to fight another day for the rest of our principles and priorities. Replace them with inexperienced back benchers with no political acumen and the left will rule the country for the foreseeable future, if not forever.

Apparently some people haven't learned anything from Traitor Thom Tillis.

Hagan probably had a better conservative rating than him.

Cyclops I am glad you showed up. Developmental Psychologists would say you operate at the highest stage of cognitive development--Dialectical Operations..

Reader said...

Blogger, have you lost your way as well? I'm shocked you would say that the country raging against republicans would be an issue. You'd better be thinking about what God says to do. God says to owe no one. Our country owes everyone and continues to spend more...and you think it's okay. People we supported have now funded abortion money.

Cyclops, you say our system is based on checks and balances...that's how my household runs. We don't buy anything we can't afford. We don't give money away unless we can afford to do so. We've tried never to put ourselves in a position that would hurt our lives. If you can't see that with your "high rankers" and want just to "win", by all means - continue to do so. Those of us who love this country that God gave us, will continue to fight against the people who try to compromise our future. My family members are very important to me and I want a strong country for them. The majority of our leaders today are weak. We have both houses for crying out loud..."high ranking" and "best we can get under these circumstances" leaders in both houses.

By the way, I normally agree with some of the things you both say...unfortunately, not this issue.

"Cyclops I am glad you showed up. Developmental Psychologists would say you operate at the highest stage of cognitive development--Dialectical Operations.." Blogger

Such thinking has put us at nearly $19,000,000,000,000.00 in debt.

Such thinking has eroded our rights and the country's morality for decades.

Going along with the left is taking us all over a cliff.

BUT.....

There's hope for republicans.

There CyCraps does it again: "Successful conservative politicians such as Virginia Foxx, Richard Burr and Paul Ryan have the experience...."


Again, Virginia Foxx, Richard Burr, and Paul Ryan are liberal socialists as per their voting record, political stance, and past actions. All three vote for increased government (Patriot Act anyone), increased spending, and government over the people. Two of the three (Foxx and Burr) voted for the crooked Blowing Rock Town Council over the proletariat to protect viewsheds of elected politicians. These three stand for government for the government by the government. No difference between these dolts and Democrats. Now we're saddled with Thom Tillis, and avowed anti-gunner who is probably sighing in relief that Obummer beat them to gun control.

Faux conservatives such as Cyclips are as bad as Demorats - you end up in the very same place.

Your ole pal

But, when it comes to Dan Soucek doing something Blogger didn't like, then Blogger becomes a "single issue voter". Hypocrite!

Reader: Glad to know your household runs on checks and balances and you don't buy anything you can't afford. That's also the way I have tried to run my household. And I've been fortunate that I don't have an out-of-control family member in my household who wants to buy something for everybody just to be popular.

Unfortunately, that's the situation in Washington today. And until we can evict the spendthrifts, they will have a voice in determining what we spend and buy. That's where the third governing concept applies--compromise. I don't like having to compromise with the Left, but right now that is the only way to make some progress. With the Nation pretty evenly divided, failure to compromise often means that conservatives will likely be the ones evicted and end up with nothing but indignant outrage.

"That's where the third governing concept applies--compromise. I don't like having to compromise with the Left, but right now that is the only way to make some progress" Cyclops

A 1.15 trillion dollar budget and 19 trillion in debt!

WHAT PROGRESS?

Where are the spending cuts? Where are the eliminations of useless and costly federal agencies? Where are the cuts in foreign aid? There are none.

There is a difference between compromise and capitulation. Learn it or continue to be a loser.

Cyclops said...

The no compromise side is the loser. Ryan's budget plan for the next fiscal year is loaded with spending cuts. But we will have to win the White House and hold the Senate for them to be enacted. Shutting down the government this year would have greatly increased the liberals chances for holding the White House and winning the Senate.

Sarkazein said...

Cyclops- In this case, the compromisers are the losers. Or, are you saying we would be $38 Trillion in debt if Republicans had not been the winners in the compromise game?
