Sick of political wing nuts?

No Labels: Not left. Not right. Forward.

The No Labels Movement Officially Launches today, and over 1,100 citizens from all fifty states will gather together to let their voice be heard.   Now, more than ever, we must ask our leaders to put their labels aside and do what’s best for America.

Want to do more? We are looking to recruit Republicans, Democrats, and Independents from every district.  There are citizen leader positions available all around the country as well as opportunities to participate in town hall meetings, host a No Labels gathering in your area, and organize a No Labels Meetup.

What's this mean? that we can't call each other out on our idealogues, behavior, actions? I don't think so.

This is still the Wild Wild West. You ain't censoring nooobody.

Guess this is the rational, evolved alternative to the Tea Party. Fact-based centrists looking for consensus solutions. That should be refreshing!

BTW, not sure why there are so many anonymous postings recently. The "anonymous" default is easy (some think not as credible), and if you prefer to post under your own name (or even a pen name) you can sign-up for a gmail account.

more commies. commies have no passion. Tea Party was created from passion. Commies don't like to answer a 'yes' or 'no'. Commies don't like COMMITMENTS. Just another bunch of progressives/liberals/socialists=communists.

How you like those labes?

"A Nazi is a commie"? Yeah, and right-wing conservative fascists are left-wing liberal socialists. Geez, get a clue.

People want labels.

you are a nazi. if someone burned your grilled cheese sandwich in a restaurant, you'd be screaming, "LIBERAL!"

"A Nazi is a commie"

...which is why Germany and the Soviet Union were allies during WW II?

This is another example of why wing-nuts are killing the country. Stupid, simple-minded people...stupid, simple-minded analysis..stupid, simple-minded solutions.

Anon, how about taking a remedial civics course? Skyline Community college is just over the hill along with most other Pacifica advantages.

Shut up, Meeh. We get all the information we need from Glenn Beck and youtube.

Liberals don't study history. They study only what they can get for nothing. Nazi's and Commies are the same. You guys are pathetic. So sad that you are Americans. Stay away from all children.

Ha, ha, ha "Tea Party patriot"... sometimes I depend upon some television sources too.

Last week there was a 1 hour television replay called "Taliban" about a Norwegian journalist (Paul Refsdal)who embedded with a small Taliban group to report their view. The program reminds me somewhat of those of you who are "Tea Party Patriots". Here a small clip of the article and the program: Embedded with the Taliban in Kunar".

Hillside Taliban Members in small groups with old weapons shoot below at US convoy supply trucks daily. US reports record no trucks hit, but with each attempt there is a "praise Allah", high five celebration. While waiting for the target trucks to pass in the valley below, the men tell stories and sing heroic "hate America" songs. Information is dispensed by the Taliban, there was no other media or books (other the Koran, written 800 years ago). No matter few could read.

Ultimately the journalist was kidnapped, but eventually was released (and that was tricky), of course he converted to Islam in an effort to stay alive.

Anon, 6:16pm, an educated population is an important component of a democracy, living in the 21st century, and for the benefit of society and human evolution. Oh you sent your children to private school, that was your choice for their basic education. Higher education should be more affordable.

Since you think "Nazi's and Commies are the same" why don't you do some research to prove your point and get back to us. My opinion is that Glenn Beck and Hitler are the same, but I can't prove that Beck is much of anything but a psychopathic liar.
