Geez Mike, since you can't comprehend two articls about 3 pages long, let me help. Obama signed off on Solyndra in his "initiative programs", supported it, even said it was doing good and it went belly up. John Corzine, the mess fixer, per Obama, "lost" scads of money and Obama still can't say he and his administration royally screwed the taxpayers, just as some of the bank bailouts did.
And this compares to Bain and Mitt how?

I already knew all that. Thanks for wasting my time as usual.

I asked how it compares? Let me repeat seeing as how you do not seem to know what I dispute, how does it compare?

<quoted text>Romney created or saved far more jobs than he eliminated at Bain Capital. However, Romeney's main responsibility at Bain Capital was not to create or save jobs but to maximize the return for his investors. Look up the definition of "fiduciary". T, your economic ignorance is profound.
And maximizing returns for investors is not what he needs to do to create jobs in America, as many investors do are not even citizens of America.

And that trickle down theory is not going to cut it.

i ask you guys a second time. How is Romney going to fix this economy, let alone do better than Obama? Dont tell me some half-baked observation about what you think will happen because of obamacare based on loose economic speculation.
He will cut some taxes like Bush did and cut some programs like Bush did and yet they will expect different results than Bush had.
Then when a democrat comes in to try and fix it, they will complain he is not fixing it fast enough for them.
Then the cycle will repeat for eternity.

They also voted for a Republican to fill the "Kennedy seat" in the U.S. Senate. It happens. Please don't tell me what I already know, just refute my points if you can.

<quoted text>Romney has promised tax reform which is badly needed. Our tax code is hugely complex and and inefficent at its core purpose which is to collect revenue. Every time a Republican president has agreed to raise taxes in exchange for spending cuts, the tax increases happened but the spending cuts did not. It happened to Reagan and to Bush 41. Bush 41's tax increase broke his no new taxes pledge and helped throw us into recession. It also cost him a second term.
So both Bush's put us in a recession? And now you wish to elect another Bush clone?

I think this clearly refutes your point. Thanks for helping me refute your point.

<quoted text>Ask the Canadians and the British about that Mike. Six month waits to see specialists and even longer waits for elective surgery. Single payer means just that. With that system there is no private alternative.
I have asked, and I keep hearing it is not all true. Yes on elective surgery. So get private insurance to pay private doctors for such. I see no reason this cannot happen. I am guessing most will just do without or wait for that elective surgery instead of paying crazy prices for it as they do now.

But I hear the wait times are not as bad as Rush and you make it out to be.

Here's something else you apparently don't understand, not everyone settles for being mediocre. Some of us don't believe in mediocrity to make those less inadequate feel better about themselves. I guess you think a good week at your bar is making $500? Do you put a limit on the number of patrons frequenting your establisment just to make sure you're not too successful? I question your business acumen if being you can't crasp that "just enough" is not always enough.
If I am not doing as well as I wish, I blame myself, not the government.

But the walking contradictions blame the government while they whine about those who ask government to help educate them or have rules about health and safety.

Your post reeks of greed.

Well Mike, you might need to get a little fire in your belly and be more creative in your business. If you know you're to blame, fix the problem. You flaunt answers to all the rest of the world's problems, I'd think you could at least brainstorm when it comes down to putting a roof over your head and food on your table. My post my reeks of greed to you because I don't settle for less as you seem to.

Clearly you did not understand anything I said as your post does not address anything I said.

You have no idea what I settle for. But I do not whine about the government making me have have what I have.

I did understand what you said. You said you weren't doing as well as you like. I was telling you what might help you do a little better. The education part, I don't know if you're talking about k-12, college, on the job training etc. Personally, I never burdened the government with paying for my child's education on any level. You'll need to be a little more specific about the health and safety issue you brought up. I don't know if you're speaking of personal health and safety or business health and safety.

ok, ill "dispute the premise" and get personal at the same time. Are you that ignorant of the world that you believe all liberals to be poor and all conservatives are rich? Or that their destined to be? How do you generalize an entire political party? You have no proof of your statement nor could you provide any because it comes from your opinion and the fact that its hypothetical. Bill gates is the one of the richest guys in this country, and he isnt conservative..neither is the facebook guy.
You posted a completely irrelevant statement so i dont even know if id call that a "premise".

Here is my statement. "If I am not doing as well as I wish, I blame myself, not the government. "
Now where in that statement does it say I am not doing as well as I wish? Do you always take out words and replace them with what you wish in order to fill your delusional thoughts?
I said 'if' not 'I am'.

I am speaking of all health and safety issues the government is handling.

RS is in the delusion as is most of these republicans that liberals all do not work or have ambitions.

But as you showed, the George Soros's are evidence that liberals can and do have some strong ambitions.

seven, let me restate in different terms. There are pullers of the wagon and there are riders. The riders need the pullers but the pullers don't need the riders. Almost half of Americans pay no federal income tax yet receive a much larger percentage of government benefits. That isn't fair and it is detrimental to a civil society. It creates a a sense of entitlement that is unsustainable.

My bad, I didn't see the "If". No delusional thoughts, just watching the race and trying to read at the same time. Race is still going. Later.

Can you show stats that confirm your claim?
I understand it is your perception, but I have never seen a stat that confirms such ideas.

A great example of that exact principle was bailouts for banks. A few dozen banks rode the taxpayers for more money than all the baby mommas, all the unemployed, all the disabled, all the veterans, all the elderly, all of the sick, all medicare ,all welfare, etc combined total. Almost half of American corporations pay no income taxes at all yet receive undeserved benefits. Wahh, Wahh, it isn't fair. I just feel soooo sorry for the rich whinners who end up paying a smaller percentage of taxes than I pay.
