I was told today, "Stop bitching about your allergies. There are plenty of folks worse off, like people with multiple personality disorders."
To which I replied, "That would actually be great. Chances are one of those personalities wouldn't have allergies."

"At least Watergate was only targeted at other politicians...The Obama administration through these multiple scandals are targeting ordinary American citizens, a government using intimidation and thug tactics against 'perceived' enemies of 'state'. Did Obama call political opponents enemies? Yes. This is worse than Watergate."

Now this Onion article does describe perfectly well how Republicans view Democrats. I actually have seen real Democrats says this stuff. Now is it all tied together like this in every Democrat's head?
Amid mounting scrutiny over scandals involving last September’s attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, the IRS’ alleged targeting of conservative groups, and the Department of Justice’s spying on the Associated Press, Obama supporter Jake Maynard reportedly devised a perfectly implausible explanation Thursday that frees the president from any blame. “Look, he’s the President of the United States of America; how could he possibly be involved in or aware of every single high-level action taken by the prominent government agencies he oversees?” said Maynard, noticeably perspiring as he explained the completely illogical reason why the President of the United States will emerge from this week’s scandals unscathed. “Let’s watch this thing play out. I have no doubt that in a week, more than enough evidence will come out showing he had nothing to do with any of this. You’ll see.” Maynard, whose voice quavered several times during his asinine explanation, ended his perfectly invalid defense of the president by stressing that this was all politics and that “none of this would even be happening if the president were someone other than Obama.”I have heard some leftists say that Benghazi simply has no legs, question what "the big deal is" and then near the end tell me about fake e-mails that Republicans created and that Chris Stevens deliberately requested no security. None of this helps me know what is going on.
There is a very good reason not to go with the time-tested cliche uttered by many a follower of Congressman Ron Paul.
Ending the Fed may cause more harm than good. Most "end the Fed" people assume that we'd go onto sound money (like a fixed gold standard or a rules-based monetarist regime), but if the President and/or Congress has the authority to eliminate the Federal Reserve, they also have the authority to alter American monetary policy on a whim. If you think that elected officials would do a good job with monetary policy, remember - they can't even manage basic things half the time.Michael Fisk, source
