Obama has signed into law - including during the time when Pelosi was leading the house - bills that Reagan and both Presidents Bush could have only dreamed of
I don't recall Pelosi or Obama advocating anything more than not raising taxes as much as some wanted. What laws are you referring to?
What they advocated for, and what they actually did, were two very different things. I'm talking about the budget proposals that they actually signed into law (in the case of Obama) or voted for (in the case of Pelosi). These were really not even close to reflections of what they said they were campaigning for. Even more so, they resulted in higher government handouts to wall street and the military-industrial complex than the GOP presidents had ever dared dream for, and larger tax cuts to the wealthy as well. The cherry on the sundae comes in the continued dismantling of workers' rights.
Another way to put it in perspective is to look for any bill that Obama signed that Reagan, Bush, or Bush Jr. would not have signed. I can't find a single one.
After the 2008 elections everyone realized the Democrats under Pelosi and Obama were too far left
Really? Obama has signed into law - including during the time when Pelosi was leading the house - bills that Reagan and both Presidents Bush could have only dreamed of. Under Obama - regardless of who controlled either chamber of congress - we saw huge tax cuts to the wealthy, and continued marginalization of the middle and lower classes.
Essentially, while the GOP was marching further to the right, the democrats decided it would be a good idea to follow.
Besides, as we've seen the last 6 years there isn't much difference between the two. One party is right-wing, and the other is 1 order of magnitude further to the right. Either way the republicans and their supporters win.
Had she waited longer to give that speech, you would be bitching that she was waffling and ineffective. Instead she took what she thought to be the most credible intelligence at the time and spoke about it.
And hell, it's not like we wasted 6 trillion dollars and over three thousand American lives on the mistake.
I noticed it a few weeks ago, and figured that finally they realized that "Dice" as a name for anything outside of gambling was kind of down-market.
Unless, of course, you're talking about Andrew "Dice" Clay, right? Really, can you be more up-market than him?
That said, I've been around here a lot less in the past few weeks. I get more useful and current tech news through google news and if I want to know what conservatives are yelling in an echo chamber I can witness that through other places as well. The utility of this site is dwindling rapidly.
Forget morphine - could I just get a way to simply, legally obtain sudafed without rigamarole at the pharmacy?
I recall someone posted the directions for how to make sudafed from crystal meth. Being as the latter is easier to buy than the former, you could start with that. For obvious reasons I'm not going to search for that method myself.
I don't recall if you get drain cleaner back out of it or not, though.
The world should take steps to head that off, they argue, by locking up the bioengineered yeast strains and restricting access to the DNA that would let drug cartels reproduce them
How would they restrict them to something that someone with enough money couldn't buy their way around? Being as the drug cartels have no shortage of money, it seems like a pointless move.
That said, it also reminded me of DHL, which left me thinking it was a crappy web site associated with a third-rate courier service.
