You're a waste of space. the topic is why does Obammy interject his racist, divisive opinions only when it involves white on black perceived crimes. so better not kill your affirmative action ambulance chaser. but he can kill you without comment from Obammy or making the newspaper.

Bull. All Romney ever did was tout tax relief for business and the top wage earners. He proposed reducing the lowest tax rate by 2% and the top two rates by 7% along with eliminating taxes altogether on interest, dividends and capital gains. Only a Con would think that was "fair".
You're actually right about not touting a "fair tax".

The reason?

In Romney's words: "Some people advocate the 'Fair Tax' as a means of boosting savings, a system that would entirely replace income taxes with a consumption tax--a kind of sales tax. Fair Tax proponents estimate that a tax rate of 23% would be sufficient, but detractors claim that it would be closer to 40%. The enormous amount saved by the wealthiest under the Fair Tax would be made up by a higher tax burden on the middle class."

But he also said: "I would like to see our tax rates flatter. I'd like to see our code simpler. I'd like to see the special breaks that we have in the code taken out. What I want to do is to take our precious dollars and focus them on the people in this country that have been hurt the most, and that's the middle class."

You did see a smaller check too this past January like everyone else? Hold your breath next January.

And if Canada's corporate taxes are only 15% and ours are 35%, where do you think corporations are going to do business?

So Romney actually had it right.

You, however, still have it wrong.

Yeah, Georgy Pudgy was just too, too weak to take a punch from a 5'11", 158 pound, barely seventeen-year-old. I'd lol if it weren't so tragic.)

Univisión Ranks First In July Television Ratings

Univisión, an American Spanish language broadcast network, announced Monday that it placed first in the July sweeps, ranking ahead of ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX.

Dan Pfieffer, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, tweeted that Univisión's high viewership could spell trouble for the GOP.

"The news that @univision is the #1 net for July sweeps is a real GOP problem on immigration -- the coverage has been brutal for the GOP"

Again with the racially profiling...

Sheesh.

Black perpetrators were responsible for the robberies in Zimmerman's neighborhood.

An unknown black young man "acting strangely" in the rain being looked at suspiciously shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

But, then again, only liberals think patting down toddlers and grandmas is much better than looking out for the most suspicious characteristics of a terrorist.

It actually really IS the culture...of borderline insanity.

i have no clue as to what you're talking about, but i was talking about this....
The Federal Reserve Board has found no connectmion between CRA and the subprime mortgage problems. In fact, the Board's analysis found that nearly 60 percent of higher-priced loans went to middle- or higher-income borrowers or neighborhoods, which are not the focus of CRA activity. Additionally, about 20 percent of the higher-priced loans that were extended in low- or moderate-income areas, or to low- or moderate-income borrowers, were loans originated by lenders not covered by the CRA. Our analysis found that only six percent of all higher-priced loans were made by CRA-covered lenders to borrowers and neighborhoods targeted by the CRA. Further, our review of loan performance found that rates of serious mortgage delinquency are high in all neighborhood groups, not just in lower-income areas.

"Hoffa, sent a strongly worded letter to Democratic leaders demanding tweaks in the law to preserve the "well being of our members, along with millions of other hardworking Americans."The letter also warned that, if unchanged, Obamacare would "destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.""

This racist point is something right wing crazies are always trying to keep to the fore.

But it keeps getting harder and harder since people are losing interest in idiots who cry wolf all the time.

Shouldn't a woman make an informed decision before making a life-changing decision and going through with an abortion?

Even if some think abortion is not killing a life - just in case it is?

Who would have a problem with that? Seriously. And, if so, why?

the above only matters to Obammy and his BFF Sharpton if
the above were shot by WHITE Hispanics while on a neighborhood watch patrol OR police officers. otherwise, no protests, no presidential speeches, just another day like all days in the 'hood.
but, but, but... if Obammy had a son he could have looked like the 18 year old
or it could have BEEN Obammy.

"(ABC NEWS)-- George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue someone who was trapped in an overturned truck, police said today.Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman "pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over" at the intersection of a Florida highway last week. Florida Highway Patrol is now handling the case, McAuliffe said"

How did Trayvon know he was about to become a murder victim? Because a concerned neighbor was keeping an eye on his neighborhood? Trayvon didn't even know Zimmerman had a gun.
Perhaps if he did, he would have kept walking.
Zimmerman could have pulled the gun as soon as he saw Trayvon - before his nose was fractured and he was being straddled on the ground. And long before he kept repeatedly screaming for help.
You don't know what Trayvon knew or when he knew it because he is dead. He is dead because Zimmerman shot him through the heart. Eye-witnesses disagreed as to who was on top, when they were on top, and who was screaming. Demonstrations in the courtroom show that it would have been close to impossible for Zimmerman to have gotten his weapon out from where he claimed he was or for Trayvon to have seen it there in the dark...you're so clearly pro-Zimmerman because you're a racist, totally incapable of logical deduction--as apparently were three members of the all-white, one hispanic female jury. Shame B-37 lost her book deal; wonder if E-54 is upset that Faux called him a black alternate?

A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a new North Dakota law that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected – as early as six weeks into pregnancy, calling the law "clearly invalid and unconstitutional."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/22/nort...

seems like every law they pass is unconstitutional.
