back the size of government and President Barack Obama's signature health
I'm curious, can anyone name a successful country with limited government in recorded history?

Can’t stop watching this mess.
Where the hell is this long tunnel’s light?
legislature in California is considering a bill that would allow electronic

When All Else Fails, Quit?
In 2005, Jon
Stewart's now-famous complaint that confrontational cable shoutfests like
"Crossfire" were "hurting America" helped lead CNN to cancel the long-running
political chat show. Now, the "Daily Show" host appears to have claimed another
scalp: MSNBC's Keith Olbermann announced Monday night on "Countdown"
that he's "unilaterally suspending" the show's "Worst Persons in the World"
segment, "with an eye towards discontinuing it."

i know you have to be as disgusted as i am about last night's election results. i really feel the Dems betrayed the country by not fighting to defend their many accomplishments against the lies of the 'right.' it's very disheartening to think the American people are that gullible and apathetic that they would hand even one house of congress back to the people who almost ruined this country. thank you for being such a force for good in these desperate times!!! we'll need your wisdom and humor now more than ever.
It is no surprise to me. Obama was stabbed in the back by his fellow spineless Democrats just as the Clintons were.
