I'm all for freedom of speech, just trying to say name calling and insults aren't the way to get your point across. If I say NRH I don't particularly agree with you on this topic can we talk about it? That leaves the door open and we might have a productive conversation, where as if if I say look you stupid MF you don't know s---. You aren't going to be willing to even listen, much less listen with an open mind. So you and SUX go ahead call names and hurl insults and try to get people to buy into your BS. Because untill you two can speak in a civil manner that's all you've got BS!

Vouchers for insurance, vouchers for school. Do the F>in Republicans know anything but vouchers and tax cuts for the top 1%. While ObamaCare might not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, it damn sure beats any alternitive the Elitist Republicans have come up with.

Sux is the only one I throw insults at because, well, he started it. As childish as that sounds, its true. Besides, "he" is nothing but a collection of trolls working in some basement or college dorm room or where ever churning out DNC talking points. So, I respond in kind and try to counter balance the insane and absurd accusations coming from them. There might be a few others but for those that arent crazy or just mean, I am more than willing to engage in intelligent debate with them anytime.

But who is going to pay for it? Where is all the money going to come from to give all these benefits? Half of the population currently doesnt pay any taxes at all. We borrow 33 cents for every federal dollar spent. That cant continue. WE ARE BROKE! 16 trilliion in debt and climbing and we want more govt entitlement programs?
And dont trot out the old standby "Just tax the rich more" line. If we taxed the "rich" 100% of their income, that would be roughly 350 billion. Thats 1/3 of the 1 trillion in debt Obama is adding to the defecit this year. Now how are we going to balance the other 2/3?
We have to cut spending, across the board, or we wont have a future to argue about.

Then you are letting SUX get just what he wants, someone lowering themself to his level. As for how to pay for it, do away with all those loop holes, cut out all the perks for the President and all those do nothing bozos in the house and senate. Let's face it no one in elected office is worth the price we are paying. If I were as incompetent at my job as they are theirs I would have been fired long ago. I'm not taolking about Republicans or Democrats, I'm talking about all of them. No one is on the public dole to the extent of the people in Washington, I mean we the tax payers pick up the tab for a lavish life style that most people can only dream about. And people on here talk about entitlement programs like social security and medicare; These bozos in congress and in the White House are reciepiants of the most obscene entitlement program on the planet. Take away all the perks and gimmies that those guys get, not to mention the obscene salaries they vote for themselves, and I'll quarenty not one of them would want to be in elected office. Not one of them are there to serve our country, they are all there to get rich.

I never could understand what's in it for those of us who foot the bill with our tax money, besides nothing. Foreign spending is as big
of a waste as the politicians in DC.

Why don't you tell that to Republiscum over the last 30 years?

The left and the center have not engaged the extremism of the fascist right until now. They (or you) are a bunch of wimps crying to Mommy because the other side is finally hitting back and hitting back hard.

Boo hoo. If you cannot stand the heat then get the hell out of this topic.

Since you are obviously complete ignorant of everything, harsh words in political campaigns have been with us from the start. Pay attention!

Oh yes, we can spend all of our time not engaging any other country for any reason at all. Let's build a moat!

We do not have to get products from them or sell them things we produce. We can ignore oil and food and agriculture and autos and building materials and clothing and everything because, you know, we are an island unto ourselves.

You are such a simpleton. Your political intelligence is at a fifth grade level.

Oh heck, Texas will be an oven on broil fairly soon. We will declare you guys to have seceded and we will not send you foreign aid.

OregonSux... You always hit the nail on the head with your comments!!

Yesterday Ryan admitted his hypocrisy about the stimulus program. Is all over the news, well..except on fox news.

I just got this from a friend...is on public records.

Romney got rich bankrupting 8 companies in 9 years. He did it by using investor’s money (not even his own) buying companies, then taking out a loan against the business to pay himself and his buddies back first. The business would not be able to pay the massive debt load along with Bain’s 20%“fee” so it would cut employees salaries, benefits, and pensions, then liquidate everything or move the business offshore. Is this your vision of American Business or is this Vulture Capitalism?

a. AMPAD - Profit:$102 million - Bankrupt: 2002.
b. DDI CORP - Profits:$36 million - Bankrupt: 2003.
c. DAMON CORP - Profits:$1.5 million - Bankrupt: 2009.
d. DADE BEHRING. Profits:$365 million - Bankrupt: 2002.
e. STAGE STORES. Profits:$100 million - Bankrupt: 2000.
f. GS INDUSTRIES. Profits:$65 million - Bankrupt: 2001.
g. DETAILS. Profits:$93 million - Bankruptcy: 2003.
h. WORD WIDE GRINDING. Profits $16.5 million - Bankrupt: 2001.

Total take:$779 million.

Even Republicans agree - Gingrich: "A story of greed, playing the system for a quick buck. A group of corporate raiders led by Mitt Romney, more ruthless than Wall Street. For tens of thousands of Americans, the suffering began when Mitt Romney came to town.”

I bet Gingrich will eat his own words. Oh yea! he doesn't recall saying such thing on national tv.
lol

SUX you tend to read what you want into other peoples comments, I never spoke of isolation, buy, sell, or trade those are good things. Those things make the world go round. Giving our money away makes no sense at all. And I'm not crying, merely calling for civil discussion. You like to call names and hurl insults, I do not. If I wished to be involved in such behavior I would not be on here. I would go out and find someone of your like mind and kick their a$$. It's easy to hide on line and run your mouth, quite another to stand face to face and do the same. I seriously doubt that you would do that; so just continue to call names, hurl insults, and prove your own ignorance. Prove me wrong.
