The end of an era?

His death marks the end of one of the most corrupt, tax and spend, entitlement socialist Senators that ever existed. If only it were true that his death would mark the end of that era!


As a Republican watching the "YES WE CAN" escapade in Denver last year, I have to admit that I was impressed with Ted Kennedy to show up to the DNC in Denver and share a few words to the kool-aid drinkers of this world.

Rest in peace!


You are an ugly group of people. The bile in your guts and void in your character is reflected in the pitilessness and selfishness of your politics.

you are right, 7:26

although there is an occasional thoughtful comment (e.g., 6:47, though that "kool-aid" cliche is horribly passe), a great many of the entries in these pages show a lack of intelligence, humanity, character, and respect for any difference of opinion ...

... these people are followers: they are told what to think, what to do, and what to say ... they are no closer to the truth than those poor superstitious folk in the dark ages ... if anyone is drunk on kool-aid it is them..

Too long......

47 years is way too long to be in politics. 2 terms is plenty for any postion. Even Hatch has been in too long.




@anon, I despise the man who would take freedom/wealth from one person and give it to another more deserving voter. And you call me selfish? How am I selfish to want to provide a better life than the one my parents gave me and not be able to do this becuase of an overly intrusive government led by the likes of Kennedy. Bile Is the utter religious-like hatred you have for any freedom loving capitalist in this the greatest country on the face of the earth!
The only true charity and pitty can come through voluntary actions and not by government mandate by powerful, super wealthy, politicians.


Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them. They create deficits then campaign against them. They create wars then campaign against them. They create burdensome taxes then campaign against them and on and on it goes! Term limits for all politicians would be a tremedous help against this problem.
