Hell must be nearly frozen over...

because even the Washington Post editorial board (a very close second to the ultra liberal NYT editorial board) is recognizing the Democrat "Leadership" for what it is...


. . and the Democrats' Reply
Cynicism that needs to stop
Friday, August 4, 2006; Page A16

YOU MIGHT THINK that a call from the new Treasury secretary for reform of entitlements would get a respectful hearing from Democrats. If entitlement programs are not reformed, they will squeeze out other spending programs that Democrats care about; they will create a budget crunch that no responsible party could want. But some Democrats do not appear to understand this. Yesterday an e-mail sent out on behalf of Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, dismissed Henry M. Paulson Jr.'s comments on "privatizing" Social Security, adding that this policy has been "soundly rejected by the American people."
Besides, the idea that the American people rejected Mr. Bush's plan is only half true. The president failed to get traction not least because Democrats were doing their best to scare voters into thinking that their retirement checks would be confiscated.


It appears that they have become disillusioned with the pinko elected as a Democrat, Pelosi, and have finally recognized the Left's real feelings on "bipartisanship" -- them and RINOs.

of making the observation.

Palsied coming from you is only indicative of an aborted attempt at being erudite.

Go back to using words you actually understand and do attempt to use them within some context where they have meaning.

That Pelosi is a pinko is so widely recognized by both parties that is is not even a debatable point.

Pelosi leader of 'Progressive Caucus'
Dems' likely top House official part of powerful, socialist-linked bloc
Posted: November 11, 2002

"Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the likely new minority leader in the House of Representatives, serves on the executive committee of the socialist-leaning Progressive Caucus, a bloc of about 60 votes or nearly 30 percent of the minority vote in the lower chamber.

Until 1999, the website of the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America. Following an expose of the link between the two organizations in WorldNetDaily, the Progressive Caucus established its own website under the auspices of Congress. Another officer of the Progressive Caucus, and one of its guiding lights, is avowed socialist Rep. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent.

The Democratic Socialists of America's chief organizing goal is to work within the Democratic Party and remove the stigma attached to "socialism" in the eyes of most Americans.

...The latest issue of the liberal New Republic bemoans Pelosi's ascendancy to top leadership in her party because of her extreme left positions, calling the Democrat's position "dangerous."

"The ideological vacuum atop the post-Sept. 11 Democratic Party will inevitably be filled," the New Republic said in its trademark TRB column. "And, if it is filled by Nancy Pelosi and Dennis Kucinich, the United States will no longer be a 50-50 nation; it will be a 40-60 nation for a generation."


Yep PINKO Pelosi!

...it is an accurate discriptive noun in this context.

"advanced liberal or moderately radical" = Pinko?
by grimgraphix / August 4, 2006 2:35 AM PDT

I had thought that a "pinko" was a communist or marxist. IE showing sympathy for "RED" ideology.

So what terminology does Extremely Radical fall under?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
