Right wing nuts support austerity. Their worship for the 1% has produced dire consequences which these buffoons still seek to expand.
Buffet stated that we here in the USA are in a race, war within ourselves. War of the classes and his class is winning ! Want to know the score?

Buffet loss credibility with the LIE about the secretary salary and his failure to pay the IRS more money though he expected others to do so.

Nothing is more insufferable than a pompous ass who fails to look in the mirror.

Illogical statement.
Hilary as SoS was directly involved with pulling the rug out from allies, betrayals, and questionable policies.

Of course the leftist phags in this country would never allow that, so you only have yourselves to blame.....

They now have universal single payer healthcare and a high minimum wage; and I think free university education; not sure, but don't think he can mess with that. His views on women are sexist and backward, like most rightwingers who are so threatened by women.
lily has no clue what this person stands for or has done, but she sees Conservative Party as a red flag and she charges.

Here's a history lesson for you...
O’Donnell: Reagan let Saddam buy– and use–chemical weapons
The latest politician to misremember Reagan’s record is Rep. Illeana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, who invoked the former president Thursday on Fox News concerning the Syria debate.
“We have said as a responsible nation that the use of chemical weapons is prohibited,” Ros-Lehtinen said.”It is against the norms of international standards and to let something like this go unanswered, I think will weaken our resolve. I know that President Reagan would have never let this happen.”
Except that Ronald Reagan let exactly that happen, repeatedly, when Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons in the 1980s. But there’s more.
“Ronald Reagan didn’t just look the other way when Saddam used chemical weapons–he sold the stuff to Saddam,” said MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell in his Rewrite segment on Thursday.“The President of the United States was Saddam Hussein’s drug dealer.”
