Think about this about Senator Rand Paul ….

This posting is NOT whether you agree with Senator Rand Paul about drone policy…this is about good manners and decency.

Senator Rand Paul, as far as I recall, did NOT get personal or trash or insult anyone in his filibuster. Instead Senator Paul passionately debated. He also did not break any Senate rule but rather debated within the framework set forth by the Senate.

Can you say the same for his critics? Did they passionately debate (and disagree) with him — or did they get personal and insulting?

The left wing rule by

The left wing rule by pejoratives, name calling, and insulting rhetoric to cover their lack of an intelligent argument. Every other word out of reporters mouths on MSNBC is an insult of some type. Thank God very few people watch them. I scan Huffington post to see what that side is saying and what commenter's think. 95% of the comments over there are snark and ad hominem attacks with no substance whatsoever, although there is a slight improvement of late. This seems to be the only way the left know how to run the country. The lack of intelligent conversation on the left is amazing.

When I hear snark and insults flung from people like McCain and Graham, it just seems over the top childish and a page from the lefts playbook. The same tired old pablum and platitude rhetoric out of their mouths ain't working either.

Note to snarky commenter's, It doesn't work anymore. Most people have become numb to that sophomoric crap. I know I have.

Lindsay Graham & John McCain

Are public enemies number 1, and number 2. In no particular order.

Where Rand took the high road, Graham and McCain descended to the usual arguments out of context, personal attacks and general idiocy.

Only by removing these two can we regain control from the Neo-Cons.

Greta did make a good point. Lets all take a moment of silence and remember this moment...ahhh. Because I'm sure she's gonna screw it up when election season rolls around.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
