Manchin deserves credit, not condemnation

April 24, 2013

Sen. Joe Manchin gained a reputation in West Virginia of working hard for compromise. Manchin, D-W.Va., tried that in Washington last week — and learned a lesson about politics. Manchin and Se....

No What and Elkins would want others to pay; not them. That's how the left work; they think they are above the same rules, taxes, laws...etc...

What and Elkins should be pitying themselves. Appears no one agrees with them except themselves. LOLOL. Liberals are so funny.

Oh truthseeker... one more way your slip is showing... You mentioned calling 911 down in the gun rant. Just to remind you, 911 is a taxpayer service - part of the SOCIAL contract we share as citizens. Police protection, fire protection, roads, public schools, all of it - is part of a broader agreed-upon socialist system. We are a democracy and therefore decide collectively what is and is not in the interests of us all. I get tired of you ranting about how people are takers when in fact we all share in the benefits of our collective efforts. Without it you would have robber barons running the show (fact is, we nearly DO). Just sayin'....

Now Truthseeker - you've done it again... Did I hear you refer to liberals as hateful, racist, liars, deceivers, who want something for nothing, think they're better than anyone else? Well, you're mistaken of course. We're willing to actually pay taxes for the common good and judging by your comments, the first thing we should do is demand better schools...

Now Truthseeker, you just stepped on my toe... You said Islam is not a religion of peace? And Judaism - is that a religion of peace? And Christianity - that certainly is NOT a religion of peace (Jesus Christ notwithstanding) - more people have been slaughtered in the name of Christ than all other religions. FACT. Truth is, all 3 Abrahamic faiths are strewn with both assertions and contradictions... But what I would caution all of us to remember is that it is easy to measure another's BEHAVIOR against our own religious IDEAL... It we want to be fair, we should admit that fundamentalism, not religion, is to blame for hatred. Fundamentalism isn't about what you believe - it's about HOW you believe... and there are fundies in every religion, every political system, anywhere there are people gathered. The NRA is filled with them. Survivalist militias are thick with them. It's like a barnacle, attaching to whatever cause gets it into port.

Well I have to admit, I laughed at TS referring to Elkins as "liberal..." And I have been reading TS and Puremagix's rants for months on this rag, and it's both laughable and pathetically uninformed. As for PM's comment about "common sense" - let me remind you what Thoreau once wrote: "Why level downward to our dullest perception always, and praise that as common sense? The commonest sense is the sense of men asleep, which they express by snoring."

Don't believe liberal nonthinking Elkins, Pure. He is a liberal. They have no sympathy for anyone. That's obvious by the nature of them; hateful, racist, liars, deceivers, socialists, want something for nothing, think they're better than anyone else, etc.... the world LAUGHS at liberals.

Elkins..your an idiot..Joe Manchin has sold out the average WV citizen to support Barry Obama and his communist agenda. If Barry was so worried about children..then why is he pushing the abortion issue? To claim those 2 are not the same issue is pure hyprocrisy. To ask every law abiding American citizen to give up our Constitutional rights for the acts of a few is shameful. I will finish this comment by quoting Benjamin Franklin: "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both"

Elkins, can you really be that stupid that you associate everything with race? You lack the common sense to realize that not everything is race related. You don't invite the enemy into your camp. Like it or not, Islam is NOT a religion of peace, and the people who practice it are anything but peaceful. How many examples of their idea of peace do you need before you are convinced they hate your guts and will do anything to kill you?

As for your warped idea about racism, you need to learn that stating facts are not bigoted comments, like the 70% illegitimacy rate among black children, and how the real racial attacks on other Americans comes mainly from within the black community. Look at Obama's bigoted comments, or Jesse Jackson's or Maxine Waters or several others in this country. You need to wake up. I could care less about Obama's skin color, but I do care about his Islamic background and the friends he keeps, like the Muslim Brotherhood.

I feel sorry for Pure and Truth because they are so backwards and racist that they don't even realize that they are!!!!! Why don't you leave your hollar and comeout in the real world and see that it's not all old and white but a rainbow. This is a nation of immigrants the only real natives aare the indians. Stop being Biggots. Everybody that disagrees with you aren't on welfare or poor maybe we are college educated hard working people who just don't see things they way you do.

Elkins........you stay in your lifeless, boring, pathetic liberal elkins and we'll stay here in conservative city where folks love their families enough to "protect" them from idiots that think they can harm others without consequences. Of course if they break into YOUR house, they would get away wouldn't they? You're pathetic and I feel for your family as you're too cowardly to protect them. Uh, calling 911 isn't going to help you much. Police can't do anything until AFTER a crime has been committed. DUH! Wake up and learn some life lessons.

The GOP problrm is that Old white guys aren't enough to win National elections. Not everyone that is open minded and understands what freedom means is angry old guys from the south. The entire country is changing but the Fox news low education people are not so if you think Rush Limbaugh is great you willnever get it, if you like the racr baiting small minded boys like Hannity, Rush and Fox news you'll never get it. But Racism and bigots have been out of style since the 50's

Gee Pure, I thought Elkins would be out trying to earn the first $20,000 or so he owes you. Maybe you'll have to wait a bit longer, hope he hasn't forgotten his offer.

I feel sorry for all of the old paronoid old white guys who wish the south would rise again and that time stood still and the US was what it was back in the days when no one had rights and no one could speak up !! The Goverment is not evil Joe Manchin is one of the few people who does have some common sense and isn't a guy who is yelling and screaming the sky is falling like the GOP ,Fox News, Limbaugh, Hannity they all scream and yell and the low information hillbillies but into it. The only people that are happy are the NRA, Gun Manufacters, Ammo suppliers because idiots are going out buying all of this stuff and no one has lost a thing what a marketing move. I think the people of this country are getting dumber and dumber.

Elkins and What can't think for themselves; they just keep believing those same folks who keep lying to them over and over again. Maybe one of these days they'll get tired of being lied to and start preferring truth and facts over lies and deceitful dishonest promises that they never see come to fruition. Doesn't sound like most liberals will wise up anytime soon though.

Still wondering what Manchin was thinking and who paid for his yacht being used to supply booze and women to senators voting on his bill. Something stinks to high Heaven. Pray for the USA.

What....the LIES of your party have become hilarious. Even most democrats now are seeing what a JOKE this current administration is. It's obvious you still are hooked on the kool-aid and cannot "wean" yourself off. THINK for yourself; you're only deceiving yourself with misinformation; intentional propaganda; supporting your 'party' rather than the most 'honest' person who tells the TRUTH. You like having your ears tickled with untruths that sound good to you eh?? How's Obama's hope and change working out for YOU? Doesn't sound like he's helped you much regardless of all the lies he promised you. Higher gas prices....higher food prices.......taxation thru Obamacare on ALL except politicians and himself included. You lefties defend your party even when you KNOW they're wrong and they lied to you. That shows one that is just too stubborn to be useful to themselves. You choose lies over truth.

I for one voted for Manchin, but since he wants to go along with Obummer there is no way I will ever support him in any way. They base everything on the Newtown shooting, and no doubt it was tragic. I wonder how many other kids in this country died that same day from guns, drug , knives and all other means of death. I bet if the truth was known the count was higher. These anti gun idiots grasp on to every shooting in the country and try to use it to take our guns away. Look at Chicago, highest murder rate in the country and have the strictest gun laws.

it is simple awful how all of the people in this state care more about a gun than a 6 yr old childs life something has to be done about all of the killing going on in this coubrty. My God are we so paranoid of the goverment please. Fox news Glenn Beck, Limbaugh and the gun makers have made millions off of panic. I would pay anyone in this counrty $1000 for every gun that has been taken from any law abiding citizens. It has never happened and never will. We have laws in a civilized society for everything guns are not unlimited. What Manchin did was not unreasonable. The problem is the idiots in this state are so backwards it's unbelievable. Thats why the counrty makes fun of us. it's sad.

Manchin and Toomey thought that the inside the beltway liberal communist government would pass gun control and thought they might lessen the damage to the 2nd amendment with compromise on the US Constitution. They forgot we are all in trouble because the politicians and judges have forgotten the US Constitution. They are no help to the citizens by compromising our rights.

To: "WhatMeWorry" Obviously your moniker fits you perfectly. After what one could see on any TV news network foloowing the Boston incident, swat, beat cops, state police and yes, even the military going door to door searching people's homes and heaven help any resident that refused or said get a search warrant and come back-- and you are "not worried?" The other scary part of the Boston incident was that Mass. and the Boston Metro area have some the strictest gun control laws in America and purchasing, owning & possessing a firearm is virtually impossible--and "you are not worried?" What if the armed fugitive had decided to enter the unarmed guy's home, instead of hiding in his boat---still not worried? If you are still not worried then, just keep drinking Big Brothers/Manchin's Kool Aid!

Correction to previous post:"...the Liberal media has been saturated with threats from pro-gun groups..." It should read: the Liberal media has been saturated with threats from ANTI-GUN groups..." Sorry for the typo.
