you said this: "wonder if anyone has calculated the 40% wealth America has lost in four years and determined if it adds up to around 5.4 Trillion dollars."
Where is the word"last" My God, you can't even tell; the truth on what you posted.
What a liar.
And really, a dishonest liar like you pretends now to be insulted by a bad word. Funny stuff.

This thread is going to be even more of a blast after Romney wins.

be throughly investigated...because of the horrendous

Phil and Homer are in serious denial and apparently really do believe no woman would ever accuse a man falsely of rape.

The man has no character.
Obama DID carry his teleprompter everywhere after he was elected and it caused him some embarrassments a few times reading it word for word.

And Obama DID turn over the scripting of Obamacare to Pelosi and Reid.

What in the world are you talking about?

MY comments???
These comments were written by a Boston criminal lawyer on the website I posted.
And he cited two separate studies conducted on the subject: The Journal Archives of Sexual Behavior,(Vol. 23, No. 1, 1994) and the Journal Forensic Science Digest,(Vol. 11. No. 4, December 1985).
It's just you liberals get so tripped up with context - and reality.
No one EVER said rape was ANYTHING but a violent act.
But false accusations DO happen. I hate having to be the one to break it to you.
Yes, false accusations happen all the time. Especially in Politics.

Come on Republicans, according to Carol you all should revel in this statement - "some girls rape so easy?"
Maybe slap it on a bumper sticker.
He left out the word "cry".

Give it a rest, Homer. It was clear what he meant in his rather detailed explanation of what he meant.

Now that's really all I'm going to say about it.

Carol has no analytical skills to speak of so her comparisons are juvenile, cough, at best.
Equal pay for equal work is not that difficult to understand is it?
A woman who is a nurse is going to make less than a male who is a computer programmer.

It's not that, cough, hard to understand.

Obama made a huge mistake by not clarifying this. Fortunately, enough lawyers did. Look it up if you even care enough about the truth.

go through the last few pages and look at my posts that where mainly ignored by the general public probably because they think they will get in to trouble, it shows that they cant even be bothered to read the declaration of independence or are constitutional rights

I was too busy laughing.
In the early 1900s, the research of Dr. William Sutherland, an American osteopathic physician, detailed the movement of the cranium and pelvis. Before his research it was believed that the cranium was a solid immovable mass. Sutherland reported that the skull is actually made up of 22 separate and movable bones that are connected by layers of tissue. He called his work cranial osteopathy . Nephi Cotton, an American chiropractor and contemporary of Sutherland, called this approach craniology. The graduates of these two disciplines have refined and enhanced these original approaches and renamed their work as sacro-occipital technique, cranial movement therapy , or craniosacral therapy.

You can laugh all you want. But as an American I have the freedom to do choose what I want to do. It worked for me. After a severe concussion my speech was like a person who has had a stroke. My short term and long term memory was gone. I could not type or communicate properly.
The 'specialists' in Chicago-the top doctors (two of them world famous) at the top of Neurological science, all wanted to do was drug me and insisted everyone who has a concussion is depressed. Now what sense does that make? drug a person that can't spell their own name? and send them home.

It is wrong to blame Obama for anything that our government does.
For Obama to have done something wrong, he would have actually had to do something.
What's wrong is the people making all the decisions using Obama as cover sitting in the Oval Office and making it look as if we actually have a president.
Soon, we'll actually have a president again.

That's horrible, Were the rapists prosecuted?
I agree with Carol that there are the possibilities of cases that are not rape but an act of revenge. It does happen, sad to say, because then this makes it bad for the real rape victims.
Rape is a hard thing to prosecute, it's usually a he said, she said scenario, with no witnesses. Unless there is evidence of brute violence and dna, it can be tough to prove, especially if it is a date rape situation.
Thank you for having a grasp on reality, Lily.

Unfortunately, false accusations do happen. But that was the whole point behind that lawmaker telling the story about his father warning him about having sex.

Homer was terribly offended because he left out the word "cry" before "rape so easily" ignoring the whole context of what he said.
