What was Bacon's Rebellion?In 1675 the lower class citizens of Virginia wanted to expand and gain cheaper land. The Yeoman farmers and non land holders wanted the government to expel or kill the Indians that were in the way of their expansion. In order to protect the upper class wealthy plantation owners, and have a ready supply of people for labor their plantation, both plantation owners and Governor Berkeley did not want this for the lower class. Against Governor Berkeley's orders, a militia attacked the Native Americans. In rebellion to these attacks the Native Americans started to raid the outer farms and plantations killing lower class colonists. Nathaniel Bacon, leader of the militia, asked Governor Berkeley for military protection from these raids. When Governor Berkeley denied them military protection against the attacks, again against the Berkeley's orders Bacon's militia attacked the native Americans. Berkley then had Bacon declared a traitor and was arrested. After Bacon's release, Bacon still angry at Berkeley for how he and the lower class people had been treated, gathered a militia together and marched against Berkeley driving him into hiding, overthrowing the government, and burning Jamestown to the ground. Soon after, Bacon died suddenly of dysentery and Berkeley regained control.

Pres Obama. Liberals, bad Big Oil subsidies, and tax loopholes for the NFL?'''''

"Hardworking taxpayers should not be forced to provide funding to offset tax giveaways to lucrative professional sports teams and leagues,” says the report, which estimates getting rid of the loophole would bring $91 million into the treasury"

Republicans just give it to the wealthy & corporate America.

We are facing taxmageddon because Republicans refuse to compromise. They can't compromise because they all signed a pledge to an unelected lobbyist & hold that over the good of this country.

What kind of "patriot" would be more loyal to a lobbyist than this country? Romney, Ryan, Republicans in Congress & Senate.

How ridiculous is this pledge, Say we discover that we have a subsidy for child molesters, we could not eliminate that subsidy unless we cut matching revenue elsewhere. Otherwise, Norquist calls it a tax increase. Republican insanity.

<quoted text> The point of opening a business is to make money. It is not to employ more people than you need or longer than you need them. It is not to give people health insurance or vacation pay. You open a business because you have an idea that you think will be a success. Under this president it is not worth the risk.
It was much safer to open a business say in 2006.

You get dumber every day.

American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS and fkn cell phone calls from strange locations___Ogden Utah for instance.
That Citizens United Act has upset the nations political balance.
I just unplug the landline and don't answer. The print ads are pretty amazing, full color double sided 8x10's, doesn't come cheap to just go to the gargabe, what a waste of money.
I heard an Allen West ad on the radio yesterday; that he will save your medicare and his opponent voted to end medicare! His opponent, Patrick Murphy, has never even held office!
Did you get that movie about Pres. Obama in the mail? What a disgrace. This weekend is going to be brutal, they'll both be here in Boca Raton with a rally for the President at the Delray Tennis Center on Tuesday. I live about 4 miles from Lynn Univ.

You morons do realize that companies have an advantage to hire part time workers now, right? So why aren't they?
