Well, it was caused by capitalism anyway.

Just like that mortgage debacle.

Don't think it couldn't happen here. We lost our moral compass and aren't even looking for it.
I bet if someone was to look they would find it is going on all across the country. I mean 1 million+ aborted babies a year have to be going somewhere, right? Bet there would be a moral outrage if it was found?

And anyone who points out the problems lie within the black community is called a racist. Paul Ryan proposed consolidating government departments with a sweeping overhaul of federal programs to focus more on job training skills to get people out of poverty.
"We've got to focus on outcomes, not on inputs. Not on servicing poverty but on solving poverty," the congressman said. "And that to me is the mindset that's going to have to change. And when you question that status quo, it's going to upset some people."
"Upset some people" is an understatement. Congressional Black Caucus leader Barbara Lee said Ryan's proposal was a "thinly veiled racist attack".
Can't have solutions to the problem. The nation might come together and heal. Where would that leave power hungry race baiters like Barbara Lee?
Those lazy "inner city" men who don't want to work.
The "inner city" culture.
Its not the decades of redlining, segregation, racism. Its not the failing inner city schools. Its not the loss of manufacturing & construction jobs in the cities.
Its the fault of the poor people & especially "inner city" men and "inner city" culture.
Its certainly not the fault of "yes" man Paul Ryan whose votes led up to the recession. It wasn't that one out of three manufacturing jobs in this country disappeared under Bush. It's not the attack of public education by Repubicans.
Its the fault of "inner city" men.

We don't need anything trying to stir another cold war...or MORE countries, bordering on failed state hood.
Can you tell me what elected office Romney has ever held? He's just another Donald Trump. He likes to hear himself talk. He was not RIGHT. Crimea is a regional conflict between neighboring nations. It has nothing to do with us. Russia's actions do not make it a "geopolitical threat". Romney's posturing is the exact type of posturing that creates wars. We should be thanking our lucky stars he's not our president.

Oh here we go; quell supris that you would glom onto this b/s. Medical waste is burned everywhere. If those women wanted to bury or cremate their fetuses, they could have done so . Look at Rick Sanitorium who took his dead fetus home and slept with it in the bed for days with his wife and children.
You people are sick in the head.

The ¨mortgage debacle¨ was caused by legislation created by politicians and lending institutions to give money to people that had no means to repay the loans. Apparently some idiots felt everyone 'deserved' to own their own homes.

Capitalism allows taxes to be collected to fill your outstretched hands.

Here's a question: what if the burning fetuses were all Arab kids or Palestinians, would that be ok? Beeee careful because this is kind of a tricky question for jews everywhere... also, it DIDN'T "happen here."..

Do the Republicans oppose abortion or just run on the abortion issue?
Since Row V Wade we have had
Republican Reagan and two Bush presidencies with Republican Congresses.
No repeal so far.
Libertarian wing of the GOP supports Abortion

As you see above gas was over $4 for 7 weeks from the 3rd week of June to the 4th week of July and was at $1.61 by the end of the year. By the way you libtards was screaming for Bush to do something. Where is all that shouting now?
Right whiners give Bush praise for lowering the price of gasoline when he nearly killed the country by crashing the economy thereby destroying the demand for gasoline and lowering the price.

I guess if they had a friend that lost their leg in an accident, you would congratulate them on losing weight.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) is expected to sign a bill that even the National Rifle Association is calling the most “comprehensive gun bill” in recent state history. It allows guns in bars, nightclubs, and government buildings without security checkpoints such as libraries. It eliminates criminal charges for those who accidentally bring their guns to the airport or other secured buildings where guns are prohibited. It even expands the state’s Stand Your Ground provision to allow felons to invoke the defense, and allows guns in public schools by authorized teachers and administrators.

Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, calls it “the most extreme gun bill in America.”

This is what he actually said - not what the liberal parrots told you he said: "Generations of men in the inner cities are not even thinking about working or learning the value and culture of work."

He's absolutely right. And as long as you and your liberal deniers refuse to acknowledge this is part of the problem, it's just going to continue.

Maybe you haven't seen videos of "baby daddies" bragging about how many "baby mamas" they have lining up in front of welfare offices in the inner cities. A liberal reporter showed it.
