Before rockefeller The high school students in most places had to buy their own school books, they where old out of date passed down and bartered & sold to the next grade, There wheren enough for all the baby boomers to have a book they had to share. rockefeller asked the legislature to fund the school books they refused. so the rockefeller foundiation bought new up to date school books for every student in arkansas. Winthrop Rockefeller paid to build many of our state parks. He cleaned up the gambling and Mob activity in hot springs. He cleaned up the corruption in the state police. I met him and talked my parents into voting for him. Dad was a yellow dog democrat. I became a republican because of Rockefeller.

Only Republican I've ever voted for, still have a couple of his campaign stickers. Great man for our State at the time and the first local politician I became interest in. WR truly served the best interests of the people of Arkansas.
Orval Faubus was a crook, built himself a very expensive 7,000 sq. ft. mansion in Huntsville, not the shack seen on postcards, while making 10 thousand bucks a year as governor.

Fabus couldnt live on his meager govenors pension, He had to take a job as bank teller at the Huntsville bank,. Rockefeller had enough of his own money he didnt need to steal from the citizens,

No I'm not a racist but you are a dumbass Billy Bob. I was referring to Frank White, the second Republican Governor since reconstruction. I also voted for Dale Bumpers, an unknown lawyer from Charleston, Arkansas, one of the Democrats that wasn't a GOB at the time.

Oh, and I voted for Bill Clinton, our first black president according to a prominent civil rights leader, before I voted against him.

I see what the "plan" is but why do YOU believe it. There has been no budget in 4 years so how do you delegate spending? You know how much you are set to take in revenue (roughly $1.3 trillion) yet spending will far outpace that number by $1.4 trillion. I want to know, from you, how the extra $80 billion will offset the deficit. Simply pointing to someone elses document makes you look like you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

i believe it because i believe all the independant researchers, analyst, and journelist, which they figure to come up to about 40 billion dollars short which is a drop in the bucket over 10 years... look i do not buy into fear mongoring or telling someone they are wrong just because i don't want to take the time to crunch all the numbers ... all these sources are very credible that have crunched these numbers over and over and over... i already have a full time job i don't wanna spend hours figuring taxes... what i do know .. like i've said... is that taxes for people making 250,000 dollars will have the same rate as today... that's a fact... because 1. obama won the electorial vote 336-206 2. obama won the popular vote by over a million people maybe more i haven't checked 3. democrats picked up 2 seats and 2 indpendants and had 21 seats up for grabs while repubilcans lost 2 seats and only had 10 up for grabs... 4. democrats won the majority percentage of the house race total vote .. but due to gerrymanderd redistricting caused by the 2010 census republicans had enough seats to hold onto the majority... 3 out of 4 is enough "political capitol" to not need to compromise much , but dems are waiting on house republicans to come to the table since that's where all revenue bills originate... but they will probably stall like they did last time and raise the credit rating again ... and yet again commit treason they wont be held accountable for... several house republicans are even seeing the light but i bet bohener reigns them in... it's a sick and twisted world when a elected official loves his own party more than country that got them elected.

Then why didn't you just say that??? Nope your a racist and that was your meaning and intent by making that comment..... Now your being chicken sh*t about it and trying to back out of what you said. Be a man and stand by what you say or say nothing. You would get more credibility and respect that way.

You are right, I have not spent any time any mental health facilities, but would you have had it not been court ordered? Would you think that as mantas 2% of abortions are done for the reasons that causes that you are mentioning? I would think that 98% are performed for the convenience of the woman. I realize that you seem no need for personal responsibility.
Well Old Timer, the world is passing us by, it won't matter what you and I think much longer. Our petty differences got us into the mess, now we try to pretend it's somebodies else fault.

Dumbshit, I'm the one you called a racist, not "Old Timer". Typical liberal, if you are losing an argument you call the other person a racist.
