Well they fined BP $4.2 billion dollars for the oil spill. That's a lot of money huh? Must have been a major deal? It will stop the deficit from going up for one day. Of course all that money is going to be spent on stuff that may or may not be what it should go for. Government never does.

Union makes no difference.

Your solution is for people to make less.

Lets all head toward minimum wage people & the wealthy.

That seems to be your America.

You make a lot less more when you're unemployed. Which would you rather be unemployed or making a little less? Don't answer that, you are a libtard, I know the answer.

Frightening; I'm new here, and may be a stupid question (i.e. go easy on me). Why would you go?

Not dating myself, but I was raised that any work is better than just sitting around. Something about your day's work? I'd go plum crazy(er) if I sat around and expected a check to come in the mail. Don't get me wrong - I like to laze around and do nothing; however, don't pay me for doing nothing. That just isn't right.

I did play fife with some drummers in a celebratory parade couple years back; mere youngster then.

No one is in charge in Syria at present__that shytehole can't even fend for itself much less become involved in the affairs of others. Egypt is not much better off than Syria having just come off it's own civil war.

Turkey is not interested in Israels problems.

Israel is a very well armed nation and a nuclear power__Netanyahu is a short timer with an itchy trigger finger.

It might get interesting__but if it does it won't last long.

Seems we have quite a bit in common. Most conservatives have been saying this for four years now.
However, there's only one way to fix it. Shrink the size of a morbidly obese federal government and start feeding the private sector by creating incentives to hire and letting people keep as much of their own hard-earned money as possible to stimulate the economy and increase revenues.
So why did you vote for Obama?
What makes you think I did?
I voted for Romney, holding my nose, and gagging heart blood into a tea-towel. But I'll be honest - I'm not sorry he lost - he never had a prayer anyway. I'm sorry my party was unwilling to look at reality, that it focused, in Congress, on things other than the economy, that Ayn Rand was picked for the Veep slot, and that the GOP candidate we finally went with, was the worst type of used-car salesman we could possibly find.

Maybe we'll do better next time, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. It seems the GOP has learned little if anything about how to lead, or what policies the American electorate supports.

Hint: there are a whole lot more poor folks than rich ones. If the wealthy want a healthy consumer economy, there need to be more folks who can afford to consume something other than beans and taters, ya know? For that, we need good jobs - putting China to work, isn't cuttin' it.

He won. Mitt is the lying jerk that let you down.

Republicans: irrelevant!

They get there news on fox? Or the newspaper.

The rest if the nation is using smartphones and tablets.

As soon as Romney started lying: relevant voters were all over it. Then he repeats the same lies again. He didn't see his short comings reported on Tv. So he figures "hey! I do it again"

Meanwhile the relevant crowd already checked his lies in the palm of their hands: instantaneous!

Republicans: think it's 1950! Old ideas about race, women, gays, workers.

Say "we welcome all people" then pass anti gay laws.....anti women rights laws......anti worker laws.....remain closet racists.

Then say: "we lost?"

How did that happen? LOL! YOU ARE IRRELEVANT!
