A terrorist like Kathy Boudin, who should have been executed for her role in a bank robbery that left three people dead, can never pay her debt to society.
So this is no longer a free country? According to the law, she paid her debt to society. Are we no longer a nation of laws. Can I ask, what is wrong with you rightwingers?

*Sure Matthews I was hoping that is was going to thunder and lightening also. It would have been much better. O'bama is an idiot. The whole world is laughing at us because of this idiot.
Yes, that's why Germans love President Obama and gave him a standing ovation and loudly cheered his call on Putin's Russian Federation to join the U S in making deep reductions in their nuclear weapons arsenals.

Homer probably thinks Charles Manson has paid his debt to society and deserves parole. Or Sirhan Sirhan. Kathy Boudin is in the same class.
Well, I do not know much about her but apparently she was released where as the other two were not.

BS.
"Basic cable" typically includes about 20 to 30 stations, including the broadcast networks, PBS, and some independent stations. It is essentially lifeline service.
The old fart used car dealer apparently thinks basic cable includes everything except premium channels.
What part of rural bumfck do you live in where basic cable is 20-30 stations?

<quoted text>But you and carol don't count anything you're receiving? "conventional wisdom that the poor, and especially more minorities, get the most out of America's "safety net." But recent data shows the reverse is true. Most entitlements are received by the elderly, disabled, or working white households, and minority households receive disproportionately little from the public purse.
Analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reveals that the poorest fifth of American households received 32% government benefits distributed in 2010. The top fifth of income earners receive 10% of benefits - most likely through social security.
The study also found that poor African Americans receive disproportionately less welfare than poor whites. Black Americans make up 22% of the poor, but overall receive 14% of government benefits.
The elderly received around half of benefits paid out. Nonelderly disabled people received 20% of the 2010 entitlements pot, while 18% of government benefits go to working people on lower incomes.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Already reeling from a pair of scandals, the Internal Revenue Service is drawing new criticism over plans to hand out millions of dollars in employee bonuses.

The Obama administration has ordered agencies to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts, but the IRS says it's merely following legal obligations under a union contract.

The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the IRS.

Grassley says his office has learned that the IRS was to execute an agreement with the employees' union Wednesday to pay the bonuses. Grassley says the bonuses should be canceled under an April directive from the White House budget office.

"The IRS always claims to be short on resources," Grassley said. "But it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses. And it appears to be making an extra effort to give the bonuses despite opportunities to renegotiate with the union and federal instruction to cease discretionary bonuses during sequestration."

All good points.
No,they're not Galt. DBWriter talks horsesh*t. The many good reasons for opening talks with the Taliban includes the very crucial one that it back up our main ally Afghanistan led by President Karzai who has staked his political career on opening successful talks with the Taliban--what the majority of Afghanistan's people see as the only way to stop the war .

Sorry, Realtime, I was aiming at Galt and Batty as well as quoting a fact about the average age of FNN viewers...besides, I'm pretty sure most of the reich-wingers on here were born old; I don't believe one could become that hateful and stupid in even seventy years without a head start.

<quoted text>Shirley you gest Flacko__you do know that such stats can easily be found online.
Presently, about 60% of US households subscribe to basic cable but that number is beginning to shrink due to newer-faster-cheaper technologies.
So, there ya go tubby__MOST of the country has cable. You're wrong once more.
Would you like to learn about pickled gherkins today? Sandwich stackers? How about pickles n peppers? Fried pickles? Sandy loam soil?
Here, Mr Peabody, you left out a sentence. "Most cable viewers in the US are in the suburbs and tend to be middle class, cable television is less common in low income, inner city, and rural areas." As I said most people have no idea 24/7 news channels even exists.

I was tired of being lied to by CNN. If you enjoy learning about parts of a story only the left want to hear, but not get the whole story, by all means, stay with CNN.

Fox News is not for you.

What am I teaching a fcking class? They let her plead to felony murder and she got 20 years to life. You don't like it change the law. I'm not standing up for her either, I'm merely saying according to the law she paid her debt to society. Fox News is merely using this as a vehicle to slam a liberal university and nothing more.

Grassley is talking bullsh*t! like idiot teabagger Sean Duffy was last night in calling out chief financial officer of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mr. Agostini for giving out high-priced salaries to their officers of the new consumer advocate bureau under the belt-tightening excesses of the sequester. Someone should have asked Charles Grassley why he didn't cut his own salary , big bonus perks as a Congressman or the big paybacks that he receives from his Corporate lobbyist 'donor'?
