            Why are they all right wingers is people from the Green Party right wingers ???.  Because Greens were some of the folks who were behind the repeal of  the Baldacci/Democrat  Bogus Tax Reform, Dirigo/Soda Tax increase bill.  The Greens have been outspoken in the last few years by the awful treatment they have gotten from the Dems in Augusta.  Just Because Greens, Independents etc. all of us have been outspoken by the awful policies of the Dems we are now all right wingers.
            You are just like other Liberal Dems you all have an awful perception of other folks who don’t agree with the Radical Left Wing Socialist Agenda of the Dems.

            They are all considered middle of the road by most ordinart people. If your an extreme right winger they would seem leftist as about everything else does.
            Most people are moderate fiscal conservatives and socially liberal.

          • They are considered middle of the road by most ordinary people?  I assume by ordinary you mean people that think and act like you and not me.  That is how you and your ordinary followers get the title of elitists, any opposing views are considered not normal, tea party, extremist right, or any number of other labels you ordinary people have determined appropriate.
            By the way, ordinary is spelled ordinary, not ordinart and your should have been you’re.  But maybe you ordinary folks use different speak.

      Why is that everyone knows the PPH/KJ/Sentinel are leftist papers.  Having Pingree’s Wealthy Husband buying them just moves them further to the left.  It also gives Maine Democrats and Gay Marriage folks free advertising.  I am glad I stopped my subscription to the Sentinel long time ago, and stopped buying the PPH as well.

        Look, if Mr. Wickenheiser, who I happen to think is a crackerjack reporter, can call Mr. Sussman a philanthropist in a news article, then I can certainly call the Koch brothers philanthropists. Wickipedia says they are, and Wickenheiser has made it fair game.

        • Guest

          If you consider funding right wing “think tanks” and the “Tea Party” philanthropy, you are entitled to call them anything you want to. By the way Wikipedia refers to their web site, “Koch Family Foundations and Philanthropy Website” It does not state they are philanhropists in any way ! Big difference my friend.

            In 2008, Koch was included in Businessweek’s list of top 50 American givers. Between 2004-2008, Koch gave $246 million, focusing on “libertarian causes, giving money for academic and public policy research and social welfare.”[25]Koch was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from George Mason University in recognition of his financial support “through scholarships, faculty recruitment and research grants”.[26

          BY Glenn Blain

          Democrats are giving Staten Island Ferry riders something to read on their way to work: highlights of an FBI investigation of their Republican Congressman Michael Grimm, according to the DN’s Alison Gendar.

          Recent articles have raised questions about Grimm’s campaign contributions, his business dealings with a known felon, and a heated altercation in a night club that ended with the former FBI agent allegedly pulling and waiving his gun.

         How would calling the President a N****R be any different than calling a female that name? I suppose it depends on who you ask doesn’t it? THAT, by itself is sad. It always comes down to who is calling the names and who they are talking about.

      Sorry Joe, but copying Rush, Fox news, and Naran is not the way to go, they all ban competent discourse with the left. Free speech even for idiots must be defended as the price of liberty. The problem is that they don’t believe in the constitution. They only think they should have free speech.
      That is what Liberal is all about, trying to let everyone have freedom, not just the rich, not just the left. Free speech and living by those principles is the only way to beat them without joining them.

        Lotta grandeur and delusion in your flowery speech. The Republican party is not evil. The Democratic party is not good.  They are simply people that disagree. Now if you want to talk about our representative’s shortcomings, that discussion is equally embarrassing  to both parties. If we want to talk beyond the greed and entitlement we’ve come to expect. That’s one topic.  But saying one party is bad and the other is good  is simplistic and frankly, people that easily trotted down the primrose path  don’t impress me as capable of independent thought. Their comments open to ridicule due to lack of facts. Just a lot of finger pointing.

         I am very liberal socially and yet I find more honest reporting at Fox then the others.  The people you mentioned do NOT represent the party. At the most they reach a SMALL percentage of the population and yet you and others like you portend to know what your talking about. Demanding that we all accept that Rush Limbaugh is the head of the RNC. Take a poll, most think him an imbecile, too.

I am sorry, but if you find truth at Fox news, then you are suffering from something undiagnosed. What I said is that free speech must be defended even for Rush, Beck, etc. I never said he was head of the RNC.

          I have already apologized for over-reacting to another poster, you owe me one for not reading my post and reacting to things I did not say. I did the same thing earlier, so I have no stones to throw. Maybe if we all are willing to listen we can get something positive done.

            You want to see name calling you go to a more liberal station. They have no compunction with calling names and turning around throwing a fit if the opposition does the same.

            This is a direct QUOTE from you. So yes, what I said is something YOU said.

            I repeat, I am more then likely more liberal then you. I worked in social services most of my adult life. My point, which always gets lost is this: The issues get lost in the name calling. The idea of painting all of one party as the same is just plain ig-norance.

            You want to make the opposition look bad?? How about doing the research, countering a point with a point?

            Children call names. Adults address the issues. can ya do that?

            What I’m saying is. we more then likely agree on most issues But you are incapable of seeing anything beyond what a prof. or the media tells you. Neither party is perfect and neither party is evil. until you can acknowledge this we can’t really have a rational conversation.

            The idea that I am pro-choice,pro-gay marriage and call for more money to social services and yet I defend Foxnews should tell you something, I listen, disseminate, and take a position from there. I don’t say, “So and so said this, and it must be gospel.?

            Look around, I take conservatives to task as well. All i’m looking for is smart, inciteful opinions from WHOMEVER.

             I don’t see the words Republican or Democrat in my post.” 

            You don’t see the actual party names??? Semantics, and as obvious and intentional as it gets.  Your too cowardly to admit your obvious bias.

            Way to ignore facts. I show you TWO examples of partisan comments you’ve made and all of a sudden your not making as much noise. Wonder why.

            Can’t be “Competent discourse” unless you agree with it. Who GIVES you your opinions anyway?

          You’ve got to be kidding “more honest reporting at FOX than the others”. Fox isn’t even news. They are a Republican propaganda machine and they lie and misrepresent on an hourly basis every single day 24/7.  Sorry, but if you think what they are dishing out is honest, you really need to get better educated on things.

            I am an independent. As I stated, I watch lots from all the networks, If Bill Mahar is who you get your news from then why be involved at all, Your not speaking your own mind you know little of the networks or the issues.

             What did you think of Justice Kennedy’s comments yesterday? Doesn’t sound good for the the President’s healthcare bill does it? Oh forget it, you don’t know anything about that do you. That would take a little paying attention. 

             Now I expect a comeback after you’ve looked at a few websites to get some idea as to what i’m even talking about.

            Fools make foolish comments and you’re clearly a fool. You think FOX “news” is honest! What a joke. For your feeble mind:I have never watched Mahar show. Justice Kennedy’s comments are just comments. He doesn’t decide the case until he hears all the arguments.

            And what were his comments??? To bad it’s difficult to catch people. All they do is look up the information after the question is asked. Lemme guess, Ed Schultz in that non-partisan hero whose words you live by.. /lmao

          Yes the Republican PARTY is EVIL. I used to be a Republican back when they gave a care about the middle class, the poor and the elderly. immigrants, women, teachers, the disabled like you, but now they have been bought by rich special interests and ONLY work for them, not the rest of us. You can’t see it? When is the last time the Republicans in Congress passed legislation geared to primarily to help the middle class? Can you find even one such piece of legislation in the past ten years, just one. On the other side of the coin there are literally dozens of pieces of legislation they have passed to hurt the lives of  the middle class and dozens of GOP sponsored legislation and blocked legislation to help the super rich get super richer. The GOP has completely sold us out and while the Dems take corporate money too, they at least are the only ones standing in the way of a complete GOP supported oligarchy.

    Matt, all I could think of after reading that first paragraph was a pretzel, because that’s how much contortions and twisting you engaged in…………so as to………???
    You don’t have to provide cover for Donald. He’s a big, rich one-percenter and can take care of himself.

    Oh, and you can demonstrate fairness in this article by adding just one sentence about that other major owner of MTM, C.S. “Bobby” Monks. I think you know what I mean.

    After the spanking the Maine Dems got in the last election Donny had to do something.  Rochelle was having SUCH a snit. Even the weekly flights in the private jet couldn’t cheer her up.

    O’ what a terrible man he is… with a soiled Pinafore and a tainted tabloid, now comes Donald Sussman with an agenda of social irresponsibility and debauchery.

    After reading and rereading this article I still can’t help but wonder why wasn’t Obama’s comment to his Russian friend about waiting until ” after my election I can be more flexiable ” published in the paper today. After all it was an article last night on NBC news. I do happen to believe owners have a say as to what stories are important, ( To them ).
