One billionaire handed $50 million dollars per year as a bush/cheney tax cut,
Or 500,000 avg income folks getting a thousand bucks each. <---- these guys need stuff! Will spend it now.
Billionaire: one guy! With a thousand million dollars.
Already has everything. Does he take the $50 million and buy 300,000 bags of groceries? Does he go out and buy 50,000 new cars? NO. JUST HOARDES IT!

Republican. Greedy.
Republican. Selfish.

The right to keep what you've earned isn't greed, it's our founding principle and the typical billionaire puts more into our economy than ten thousand typical Obama voters.

Galt is bored by the abortion discussion and by Conservatives that allow themselves to get dragged down by this losing issue.
No change will ever occur except by SCOTUS.
Let's focus on something that we can actually change.
The abortion issue will always come to the surface after such events as Gosnell slashing throats of newborns occur.

This resulted in a shift in Americans opinions about the issue, inspection or lack of clinics, etc.

This may bore you but infant viability and safety of women will always be of interest to me. It is about public health.

Should it be mandatory that abortion clinics have routine inspections is most definitely a public interest question. If it isn't happening, then the policy needs changed.

What is infanticide? Does it occur only after birth or does it occur when the umbilical cord is cut prior to birth to guarantee the would-be-viable infant is stillborn?

Some things are not all about politics.

But, I continued to re-post the poll due to Dave's and Yeah's confusion about what it stated.

As awful it is to read Nobraina's hatred for all things American, think how awful it is to be Nobraina!!

It's the deep seated hatred devouring him that caused him to create Galt and speak in the third person for this sick imaginary creature.

They're a radical political strong arm group who can't stand on their own two feet and need to leach off the benefits of a stronger party in order to survive while blocking any piece of legislation they can and claiming it victory for themselves, not America.

I wish this 'asset' would provide value in other ways. America can't afford them.

<quoted text>Americans are tossed on this issue. 90% of Americans also approve of NSA data collection if it leads to the capture of terrorists or foiling of terrorist plots. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating!" American pragmatism is deep in our DNA. Americans also find no cause for worry about large private Telecom companies data mining personal information and selling it to the highest bidder in the market place. You can no longer buy or sell the 'person', but only the person's 'information profile'.
What sort of impact will this have with foreign companies doing business in/with the US and US companies knowing they will be opening themselves up to NSA scrutiny?

The average score for all

U.S. metro areas: for example, less compact housing, a poorer mix of homes and jobs,
poor street connectivity, or weaker than average town centers."( http://www.smartgrowthamerica.org/documents/w... ) Look at the example of Mizner Park . "The mixed-use Mizner Park town center demonstrates how suburban communities can create vital downtowns by redeveloping abandoned shopping centers. In Boca Raton, Florida, redeveloping the underused Boca Raton Mall into a community center removed a blighted property and helped revitalize the surrounding community." http://www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/case/mizner.ht...
As a reminder... Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami south and east Florida are home to the elite of ghetto liberalism, the democrats that could not read nor count and lost Gore the presidential election, duh??

Miami FL ranks (5th) in the nation with highest poverty, ignorance and idiot rate and never elected a Republican mayor in its history... Democrats who continually elects democrats and their still poor...

Check it out... There's more ignorance in Palm Beach county South Florida than in the ghetto of Chicago or most 3rd world countries.....

South Florida is forever doomed in hopeless loser and idiot... South Florida is a hell hole of ignorance, a cesspool of idiot4/life, full of handout democrats, you losers4life...

You're rabid hatred of the colored guy in the White House has derailed your ability to make a coherent argument (assuming you were ever capable of such). In your reply, taken within the context of the post you're replying to, you're saying that 99.99999% of Americans are Obama voters.

The UN stole the land from the people who had lived there, to give it to European Jews. Based on collective guilt for not helping the Jews in Europe when Hitler went after them. Now tell me in what fantasy world gives the UN the right to 'partition' land that Arabs had lived on for hundreds of years?? The Jews had left the ME a thousand years ago. And they say God says the land is theirs??? What kind of stupid nonsense is that?? That would justify the Apaches saying the Great Spirit gave them the west. And throwing all non-indians off the land. Don't think many Americans would go for that, do you?? The creation of Israel was a mistake. One that we have been paying for since 1948. Either Israel makes peace, or they will lose their nation entirely. As America grows weaker and china ascends to #1 power, the Israelis will be very sorry they didn't get a peace deal while they could. It's really that simple. But you probably believe in the Armageddon nonsense, bible thumper you are. Folks like you would be willing to see the world destroy itself in a final war, just to fulfill some ignorant Bible nonsense. I think we should make Florida the new Israel. Solves the ME problem, FL is already loaded with Jews, the rest would fit right in.
Just a pathetic old fool ranting against his failures and miserable condition... AND... We still witness you, nuculur continually making a fool of yourself daily, living in a rear view mirror, living in the past with an 'Avatar' called you breastfeed on George Bush and you love sucking Dick Cheney...
