Please tell me that you're not so twisted as to think that someone abducting a 10 year old girl, dismembering her body and leaving her like trash isn't political? Law enforcement and others investigating her death are government employees paid as someone pointed out the other day by our tax dollars, so yes, it's real political to me. The only reason it didn't get your attention is because she wasn't black, now that would have gotten your attention. Maybe if the news had said her murder was racially motivated that may have gotten your attention. What will it take for you to look outside the box of Obama and the Dems?
And you like to accuse me of "always bringing race" into an issue. Such hypocrites. Do you think we would really care only if the girl was black? How foolish that comment is.

<quoted text>I think you missed my point. I was trying to show, this guy must keep using his money to make more money. Thus, his money must continue to work. His other work is irrelevant to the conversation.
No matter how rich he becomes, if he spends it, he will not keep it. If he does not keep working the money, he will not be as rich as he was before.
In other words, what was your point of saying, he had to keep putting it back in?
My fault Mike, I got your point, he just calls it his cash flow. Exactly, he uses his money he earns and reinvests. Sorry for the confusion.

TSF, it's quite apparent you have no time for anyone that you consider "rich." You know and I know, we can tax everybody in this country to the teeth and we'd still have a major deficit. Don't grouch at Republicans for loopholes implemented by the IRS. We don't make the rules. Maybe you ought to dial up Geitner and tell him your concerns about loopholes; heck he didn't even pay his taxes, now that's a man that cares about starving children. When will you people ever grasp that it's not wrong to be wealthy? I'm not wealthy, but I sure as heck know these big companies that employeee thousands in our country and their business help small businesses, we need them. Yes, the wealthy need to pay their fair share, but what are we going to do, cut our nose off to spite our face by making it impossible for them to make a profit and continue their business? They're going to pass down tax increases to the consumer, so what has been accomplished. Are you of the mindset that people of wealth should pay more so there's a level playing ground? Obama is not Robinhood and the Dems aren't his merry band following him around, taking from the rich giving to the poor. At what level do you hold people personally responsible for finding a job, as you say making babymommas get off welfare work, take care of their children and be responsible for themselves and their families. You act like it's a sin to be wealthy. Many people worked hard from the ground up to make their wealth and excuse me, if I don't think they need to hand it over because people don't take personal responsibility to find a job, and look after themselves.
Show one thing Arnold said that makes you think he, "You(Arnold)act like it's a sin to be wealthy?"

I note you guys say this a lot, but never when someone is actually saying wealth is bad. I guess you are just assuming again with based upon your bias.
Again, it just makes you look like an ass.

And claiming the rich are making it "impossible for them to make a profit and continue their business",due to taxes is not based upon any facts. Again it is just your biased false perceptions.

I was well aware of the case before you mentioned it. I guess you just assumed I did not know about it because I did not mention it. Again with your false assumptions.

So you think praying helps? Clearly it did not help one single bit. It may have made you feel as if you did something to help, but in all actuality, it did not.

I guess your god does not listen to your prayers, nor anyone else who prayed for her.

If I could have helped the child, I certainly would not have hesitated one second to do so. Clearly your god hesitated. Your god did nothing even though it is believed he has the power to help. You asked him to help, but he clearly did not.

Did you think your prayer would encourage god to help? Did god need to be asked to help a child from being murdered?

And just because police are involved, how is that political? You certainly failed to explain that.

Are you seeing the trend among the republicans here? They all keep assuming they know deep inside everyone's lives.

<quoted text>The gov. or the same "we" you refer to in most of your posts. I rarely hear anyone, unless it's Hillery, on C-Span addressing human rights violations. They listen if the President makes a statement at a Clooney fundraiser. Two weeks later the Sudan, his pet project, receives aid. As far as, other countries being worse off, are "we" to be the supporter of the world. Should we not take care of home before "we" try to take care of the neighbors? I am of the belief, that if I don't take care of me, how can I take care of others.
Sometimes helping your neighbors helps you. We live in a time of a global economy.
I am not suggesting we spend so much on other countries it breaks us.
Bush spent a trillion dollars in Iraq, yet I hear not a single republican bitching about that.

I do think the president could say more about other countries wrongs. But I am not really sure it would help. Again, I think our voting dollar would do more change.

The democrats do spend to help us here at home. The republicans are against all that. They just wish to cut, cut, cut all spending. Well, they wish to sharply increase military spending.

Arnold, did you pray for this little girl and do you continue to pray for her family? If your answer is yes, do you think we serve a God that doesn't care as Mike says? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions you call Mike out or you're the hypocrite about religion as you called me for bringing race into this issue. You always want to bring God into an issue, so take a stand for Him. Either deny Him or reject Him and do it before everyone here so we can really know if you're just paying lip service of being a christian.

<quoted text>You underestimate the power of the republican propaganda machine.
If Romney wins and the economy stays the same, they will spin it somehow to be Obama's fault.
They will pretend they did not chastise us for saying the economy was Bush's fault.
Now why do you thing Romney will win?
And just why do you think when you change names or go off your registered name we know you are not an impersonator? That makes no sense.
What you think is obvious is not always obvious for others.
Kinda like how you and TSF always spin it where it is Bush's fault? Good for the goose, good for the gander...

I never hear anyone here ever talk about the need for a third party. I've heard other people say that maybe it's time, others say it would throw us back into the dark ages. Does anyone think the Republican and Democrat parties have run their course, and it's time for a more "global" thinking party?
As I said, so far all third parties are so extreme, they do not have enough people who agree with them to get close to winning.

Fairly simple concept but obviously too hard for democrat/socialist/communist to understand.

Fact, your god did not answer your prayer in this case.
It is highly likely millions prayed for this girl. So can you explain what you think god was thinking or caring about in this situation?
Why are you asking Arnold to defend your position? Can you not do it yourself?

Mike, where in that post did I mention Arnold's name? I asked you before and you ignored the post. Could it be I didn't?
