I couldn't help but shake my head with his every post. Do people really believe that stuff? I know someone who owns a business and pays his workers very well. He's generous at Christmas and Easter with them too. He told me he had one smart a** who made a comment about forming a union some years ago because this guy wanted more benefits. This business owner told that guy "Get the eff out of my shop NOW." He had no time or patience for BS like that.
ok so here's the point if the guy was actually paying his workers an honest days pay for an honest days work and generous at christmas and easter then cudos for him for telling the worker to eff off.. greed has no place niether on the owner nor the employees behalf. does this make sense? no employer should hamper their business by condoning poor work ethic on any level.. does this make sense? so with that being said i hope that all of this will have enough time to marinate because i did not spend half a page trying to prove a point.. succinct and simple.

America let the DemocRATS lie, cheat, and steal the Kenyan right back into the WH again. He's spit on the constitution and the law of the land all his stinking life, especially since he's gotten to DC. Power corrupts, absolute poser corrupts absolutely -- it's never been more true than with this joker. He's got the whole world burning, America in total failure, and martial law is next. He's promised to murder the unborn, the old, the infirm and all who oppose him (armed and unarmed) all along. America is getting what it promised.

And Happy Thanksgiving to you, even though you haven't a frickin' clue to just what personal freedoms mean. Sure you served in the military, sure you have played life by the rules..well guess what, you haven't learned shit. Just another in a long line holier than thou hypocritical miscreants bent on forcing your skewed sense of logic on the rest of us.

Good luck with that.

Washington -- Peace, one of two turkeys pardoned by President Obama last year, was euthanized Monday, according to an official who insisted the timing of the death - days before the Thanksgiving holiday - was not suspicious.
Rebecca Aloisi, vice president for marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate, confirmed that Peace had been dead after a weekend "illness." But Aloise knew neither the nature of the illness, the manner of death, nor what had been done with the remains of the large, edible bird.

<quoted text>reality check bud but your fantasy world will soon collapse around you... you kept mentioning 08 like it was allllll obama's fault... the result of what bush did over the 8 years of his pathetic rule was a direct result in everything that happend in 08... how dumb do you have to be... every major economist.. every major leading republican,even fox news, and democrate and elected official around the world.. and even that 3rd grade reading level president himself knew .. why the hell do you think he did not campaign for romney like clinton did for obama or show his face the last year of his presidency or have shoes thrown at his face in disgrace.... i mean cmon GET REAL.... this country was bleeding over 700 thousand jobs a month when obama was elected into office... and now we have over 5 million jobs created with an average of around 100 thousand being created a month ... unemployment under 8 percent and will drop even more drastically when they pass the jobs bill that house members will have no choice but to sign this year... and your fox news 80 billion dollar coffer lingo wont cut it hear because those false statements after alot of independent economist have already disected it and said that it would create a small but net revenue.. who is gonna beleive a news channel that went to court over broadcasting false statements and non factual content... they ultamatly won because of freedom of the press... which should be revised.... and what we are unfortunatly left with are several uneducated people that have never known hardship in it's true form and will cut wages and pensions 401k's benefits hours to make a net profit of 40 million dollars .. that's cash in pocket... instead of 35 million .. get real ... and by the way inflation was only 2 percent this past year
First off Bill Clinton campaigned for Obama more than other former republican presidents campaigned for Romney because the democrats are far more passionate and well organized than the republicans are at this point, plain and simple. Do you really believe that the country was bleeding 700K NEW jobs each month or, more realistically, the level gradually reached 700K over the course of a year. There is a HUGE difference in the two scenarios. We have around 435K jobless claims currently and the unemployment is just a hair above 8%. Does it at all strike you as odd that under Bush we had 700K jobless claims (almost double)yet the unemployment was only 7.8%. The unemployment rate is a measure of the prevalence of unemployment and it is calculated as a percentage by dividing the number of unemployed individuals by all individuals currently in the labor force. It's simple math. Do you think that maybe the percentage is higher under Obama because there are so many that have dropped out of the workforce thus hiding the fact that the situation is far worse under this president. This is just looking at the facts of the numbers. Try it. Since inflation can be manipulated by the fed keeping interest rates low, you can't really use it as a metric of a healthy or unhealthy economy. I noticed that you launched into a finger pointing, demonizing rant instead of addressing the FACT that taxing the rich won't come close to fixing our debt problems. How about you tell me how spending twice as much as we take in every year will EVER turn things around for America. Would it make your personal situation better if you did that in your household? How will Obama's policies bring America back to the greatest, strongest, and most prosperous nation in the world? Try to use facts and not talking points.

I just received my tax return for 2011 back from the IRS. It puzzles me...

They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.

I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?"

I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads;
42 million unemployed people on food stamps, 2 million people in over 243 prisons;
Half of Mexico; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate."

Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer. I KEEP ASKING MYSELF:

WHO THE HELL DID I MISS??!

Nobody that you have a disagreement with wants anyone to not have personal freedoms. I would argue that forcing someone who has made an honest living to give some of their money to those who are "less fortunate" (and I use that term losely) is a perfect example of stealing personal freedoms from those that make the money AND from those who accept a set income from a government that promises the moon but never delivers it. Those that accept that lifestyle see their drive to succeed simply melt away and all that is left is a slavery of dependence and anger towards those who they don't know and certainly didn't cause their dependent state. America is like no other nation in that here a person sets their own destiny and level of success dependent on their drive to succeed. There are a handful, and I mean a minute percentage of people in this country that are excessively greedy and evil at their core but you wouldn't know that by the rhetoric being thrown around. I can't think of one single person who is poor and unsuccessful (and i know a lot of people like that) that their lives were directly shaped by any rich person and I would be willing to bet that you don't either. It's sad that anyone would actually buy in to the lie that the rich in this country caused all of the pain and suffering we see all around us. Everyone in this country has a path to success and is significantly more free than anyone in any other nation. It is up to each and everyone of us to preserve that personal freedom by doing all we can to prevent having to live off of the success of other people. It's just sad that so many choose fun and irresponsibility instead of drive, determination, and responsibility.

God would never want someone taking money from someone more affluent and giving it to someone less fortunate. Who would be blessed? The affluent individual rightfully earned the money but doesn't have a say in where that money is given thus it can't be considered sincere and from the heart. Obama didn't earn it, he just took it from the rich and gave it to the poor so he isn't sincere or sacrificing. Finally, the poor American that recieves the money has every opportunity to make something of himself or herself in this country but hasn't so that can't be blessed. Do you really think God blesses stealing because that is exactly what it is. If the rich doesn't give any of his/her excess for the better good of mankind then God will take care of that in the end I can assure you. If Obama tries to do God's work then he will answer for that in the end as well. If a person is poor because he or she didn't take advantage of the endless opportunities this country offers then God will take away or give whatever blessing He wants to. We all need to take care of our own salvation and deeds here on earth and let God take care of the rest.

Do the math folks. You had Nixon-Agnew-Ford 8 years. Regan-Bush 8 years. Bush-Quail 4 years. Bush-Channey 8 years. All equal 28 years of Republicans. You had Carter in between Democrat (from the South) Religious boy that didn't know nothing, 4 years. He didn't help, but didn't hurt either. 8 years of Clinton-Gore who found jobs for many, how they done it I don't know back in the 1990's. 4 years of Obama (which things were in a MESS when he took office just like when Clinton took office things were in a MESS. You got 28 years of Republicans Presidents and 16 years of Democrats Presidents in office. If you are a working person, you do the MATH and figure this one out. It don't take a long time to make a MESS, but it takes time to fix it. And Republicans are GOOD AT MAKING MESSES. If you can read my post you can read history and it will tell you the same thing.
