Forced government "wealth redistribution" is Communism.
So, what do you call it when the wealthy's share of the country wealthy triples?

Congress through changes in regulations & Tax codes redistribute the wealth towards the wealthy.

What do you call it?

Killing gays is a hate crime, you don't have to be white to do it either, assuming that the man arrested is guilty, which we don't really know now, do we? He was driving the victims car and crashed.
We shall see.

It's amazing isn't it? One would think that we have a few billionaires on here; like Carol who continually carries water for the rich while making an hourly wage of $15.00; the hillbilly from KY who claims she works and once said makes $400 a week (doubtful)
etc.
It's not only against the poor, it is against all the middle class working people. They've been convinced to vote against their own best interests.

<quoted text>That's a real stupid request pal and anyone with a hint of an imagination understands that "persons of any age" without health insurance are unwelcome at the doctors office so they work through fevers and ailments, using over the counter or home remedies.
Same with trips to the dentist, eye doctor, eent specialists mental heath types and too many more to mention. When I coached I met up with young men who had never seen a doctor of any kind since grade school vaccinations etc.
Brokeazz folks can wait in line at the county clinic or emergency room but middle class folks with credit to protect avoid situations that will put their credit and or finances at risk.
Plus, they don't qualify for medicaide because of income. Eman's an idiot.

<quoted text>The Romneys are decent, hardworking, successful and generous. Ironically, the October issue of Kiplinger's Magazine gave financial advice and compared the Obamas, the Bidens and the Romneys. Americans preferred the first two were basically unsucessful financially compared to the Romneys and also cheap with their donations in proportion to their income.
The country would have already been back on track if Romney had won. And we are now left with four more years of a failing economy, physician shortages because of Obamacare and perceived military weakness as Obama emasculates America. A real leader would have insisted both parties come to the table. This Excuse in Chief can only blame and campaign.
Yes, the Romneys are decent, hardworking, successful and generous as you say, which is why Democrat slobs have no use for them.

I agree with everything you said. Brainless liberal/socialists don't get it, they just want to take it (everyone else's money).

Look dumbass, if you read my posts, you had my answers.
1) Obama signed the budget Congress passed in April of 2009.
Obama couldn't sign any others because Congress did not pass any others./ I clearly answered but evidently you are too GD dumb to read.
2) There were never 51 ore more Democrats in the US Senate in 2007 & 2008. That was in response to some idiot claiming there was a Democrat majority. The Senate was Controlled by Reid who won the election for Senate Leader because the two Independents voted for Reid.
Furthermore, dumbass, control does not pass any bills. It takes votes.
RealDave your doubletalk might work with another Liberal but you continue to highlight why Obama is unqualified to Lead! This president had the Majority in House/Senate in 2007 Supermajority in 2009 and failed to get One Democrat to vote on any of his Budget!! Dave thatís the definition ofÖ.Ineptness!!

Israel on alert as locusts hit neighboring Egypt!!

Swarms of locusts have descended on Egypt, raising fears they could spread to Israel.


The locust alert comes ahead of the Passover festival, which recounts the biblical story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. According to the Bible, a plague of locusts was one of 10 plagues God imposed on Egyptians for enslaving and abusing ancient Hebrews.

I could say all crimes are hate crimes. Why should one be different than another. Murder is murder no matter the reason.

Galt, you're such a Lying piece of GOP Sh*t, it defies the imagination. No one but Bush and his gang of thugs knew Plame was CIA because she was a covert operator.
According to the Grand Jury indictment against Libby, Plame's employment with the CIA was classified.
She was working undercover with Jenning Brewster and Associates as a nuclear consultant. There was no sign on her desk that said, "I am CIA". She frequently flew overseas and managed spies. Her specialty was assessing nuclear proliferation. It was the kind of work that aids our intelligence analysts in determining who might have a nuke.
Following Plame's exposure, retired C.I.A. analyst Larry C. Johnson and ten other former employees of the agency formally protested the matter to Congress.
Here's my source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Plame
The part about the Grand Jury concluding Plame's employment with the CIA being a classified matter is a few paragraphs above the section entitled "CIA Leak Scandal".
You're not dumb, Galt. But you are a lying, low-crawling GOP snake.
Washington Post - Robert Novak: http://tinyurl.com/8al4m

"In addition to Novak, six other journalists are reported to have known Plame's identity before the Novak column was published, including Judith Miller."

You are a silly little joke, Cway.

Common knowledge means just that, Dood. Commonly known. She walked around Washington thinking her sh*t don't stink because "I'm a CIA Party Girl!"

Her feigned "surprise" at being outed was simply used to make a stink. Period.

Grow up.

I believe the cut off for a family is $90,000. That ain't poor around here. Subsidies means the government, as in me, is going to pay for a lot of people's insurance.

Democrats and independents never run in your area?
Very seldom do worthy I or D candidates run for office in my district. Keep in mind that I's are shut out in Florida's closed primaries as are D's mostly except in the few Democratic districts, lily's for instance.

My 2012 Florida election guide is always handy and the incumbent asteriks are overwhelmingly next the name of the (R) candidate. That's why I laugh my ass off when dummies like Carol spew about how liberals have ruined everything. My state is more fkd up than most and it's controlled by "conservative" (R'S)
