Yes, I am embarassed by some of the remarks on here by those on my side of the fence.
But you should call them on it like I do with those on your side of the fence.
Just say to them, "Your party should be embarrassed by you. Unless you're the best representative they have."
That's about all either of us can do to shame them into knocking off their crude posts. Right?
Are you picking on dem again? If you manage to have him removed from this thread Homer will never speak to you again.

I apologize profusely for my many instances of offensive language and boorish posts. It all started with too late toilet training and many instances of abuse in my childhood. Freud would have a field day. I can only hope I can be cured of Obamatitus. This condition prevents me from working and cripples my social life. The symptoms are similar to tourettes and also compel me to steal from others in order to give to Democrats

Yo, Jimmy. What's up with the childish name calling? And, no. Obama is not changing policies. Romney, on the other hand, has hardly been consistent.

<quoted text>Two people, same job, one male on female, same production. Where do you stand on equal pay for women?
re-thinking your question....my response is that each person is judged as an individual, and gender is not a factor in salary...nor is there a need for equality of salary between any two employees even if they perform the same function....

You are sooo clueless. Romney didn't all men so he went out and looking for women that were qualified.
No one asked him that question dummy. The question was, are you in favor of equal pay for women.
Yes or no.
Instead he blabbered on about himself in Mass.
Answer the effing question.

Same with the assault weapon question; are you in favor of an assault weapons ban; yes or no.

What did Mitt say? Blabbering on and on about violent gun deaths are the result of single parents!

What is wrong with him?

Hi Dem,
I forgot to tell you that I loved your post yesterday about the doctors in ER's and absolutely agree that it would be a real eye opener to the candidates, congressmen/women and senators to spend a couple of days in one.
It should be a requirement; in addition to spending a day in prison and living on minimum wage and foodstamps.

$60, 000 compared to a person trying to survive on minimum wage would be like living large.
Bah, most Republicans won't leave the house for less than 100K, they'll just live off their inheritance or sell some more property, dump some stock, or if in real dire straits sell some of their (gulp)gold.

our company requires new employees to agree, as a condition of employment, to be willing to accept temporary assignments and relocations, including overseas assignments....some might say this tends to discriminate against women.....what does Homer think???....

Okay, look, I'm not naive. I know that even the plainest of things can't possibly get through to the Romney campaign and the conservative base. But hey, that's a good thing! The more time they spend in a tizzy over "act of terror" ≠ "act of terror," the longer they'll look like fools trying to politicize the deaths of Americans who died in the service of their country. Meanwhile, Barack Obama will continue to look like something Mitt Romney simply isn't: a president.

Just bluster from another tea bag stooge with an eighth grade education.
