oh- so you met him only this morning? He is a career politician and isn't known for his temperament or the ability to talk to members of the opposite party.

Your mommy and daddy pay for your school, and it would not surprise me to see collecting stamps for each of your aliases here, BOY.

You don't pay taxes, BOY, so I can see why you aren't worried.

You better hope the IRS doesn't get wind of the tip jar you have on the bathroom county in the community college stall where you work though, boy.

From what I've read, Paul Ryan's budget plan (endorsed by Romney) will dramatically increase the cost of Medicare. Am I missing something? My grandparents are both on Medicare. Thanks.
yes, dipshit, you ARE missing several things...
1. intelligence
2. the ability to think for yourself
3. ryan's plan would BEGIN with those UNDER 55...
ALL those who are now getting medicare, and ALL those OVER 55 would NOT be affected AT ALL.

You'd have to work if you joined a union BOY. You'd have to get a real job. You have stop sponging off your mommy and daddy as your go into your fifth year of community college, telling them you are trying to find yourself.

Boy: the only union you will be part of is illegal in most the southern states. You best stay in California.

Ryan has ownership stakes in companies that benefit from oil subsidies .

Ryan “and his wife, Janna, own stakes in four family companies that lease land in Texas and Oklahoma to the very energy companies that benefit from the tax subsidies in Ryan’s budget plan,” TP

We don't need to do that either.

Actually we never should have went there in the first place.

$335 million?

That's peanuts compared to what we have already spent on someone else's space station.

That's "space" welfare.

If Paul Ryan and the Billionaire win, this country is ruined for all but the extreme rich. They will lower corporate and personal taxes on only the rich at 0. Everything we working folk paid into SS and Medicare will be tossed into the Ryan toilet.

I say tax the rich at 75% as they do in the U.K. and pull a few trillion out of the defense industry black box. We'll all be fine then. We don't need to be attacking nations willy-nilly as W did, squandering the only surplus we've had.

Lumping all people of a certain race into the 'lazy' category is unadulterated trash. Try to have some intellectual integrity and explain why so many jobs went to China and the Far East. Hint: slave labor is cheap.
By now, anyone with even half a brain knows that the negro has very limited ability and that the only way they can progress anywhere on earth is when they are the under direct supervision of a non-negro.

Ya, you're right we would be much better off with billion-air John f---ing Kerry or million-air John f---ing Edwards. You simple minded nit-wit sheep are amazing.
