Hi SLA,

As you already know, FR and I were not discussing like this previously and I'm not always very cordial either. I guess the recent happenings with my Mom and with FR going in for various medical things reminded me that we can have differences and still be cordial. I have a tendency in responding to people as they respond to me..if they respond to me in a nasty sort of way, I can certainly oblige them with nastiness, but I prefer to discuss or debate with some level of courtesy.

I see you have toned down some of your responses as well, and I see you also responding in the same manner as you are addressed...I believe most people are like that.

I hope that we can all debate and yet remain somewhat courteous, but I suspect that won't be the case always.

I think we have all represented our viewpoints here and will see the outcome in the elections.

Have a good one...

I don't believe Mitt has any intention of balancing the budget.
He's talking about strengthening the military. Taking on more, not less, policing the world.
It doesn't come cheap. On the other hand, the average enlistee isn't exactly someone with marketable skills, especially with this economy.
I think his strategy, like Bush's is to get them off the unemployment line. If they get killed, it most likely helps our bottom line.
Time to go. Have a good day,

Hi Mary,

I was here in Massachusetts when Romney became govenor and worked to fix Massachusetts without taking a paycheck. It matters not to me that he is wealthy, and I would challenge people to find others willing to do the work and take nothing for payment. Massachusetts was in bad economic condition (we can thank the endless years of Democrats in Boston for that), and Romney made some hard decisions (decisions Democrats refuse to make) and balanced our budget. We now still have a surplus and "rainy day" account thanks to Mitt Romney.

AND HE DID IT BY WORKING WITH DEMOCRATS!! CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE THAT!!

I am still in Massachusetts and have seen continual increases in taxation, but damaged roads, continual increases in taxation, but reduction in services, continued increases in costs, but an education system that is slowly but surely failing our children.

Romney repaired the economic ills for the Olympics and then came and fixed the economic ills for Massachusetts...both times, NOT TAKING A PAYCHECK. That may not hold much water with you, but it says a lot to me...

Romney has in his personal life positively impacted hundreds or thousands of people, but you hear little of it because it is as a result of his religious beliefs, and we certainly cannot look at religion in this country, now can we? He has proven himself an honorable man in his personal life, and that says a lot to me.

Romney WASN'T IN CHARGE AT BAIN CAPITAL when the outsourcing occured...how many times must that be said!! Even if he were, the companies that Bain invested in or took over were destined for Bankruptcy and were going to go under anyway...simple concept for anyone that cares. Those people were going to lose their jobs anyway...thats life.

The bottom line for me is that people don't want to hear about the realities that occur when businesses go out of business, they want a cushy job, paying an upper level wage, and they don't care what it takes to make a business profitable, which in turn allows those jobs to continue.

Those of us that understand have few issues with Romney because we know how it works. The people that have issues with Romney don't understand how it works and they are blind to the realities of business and life.

We each typically have 2 choices...

Be an employee: You choose to work in someone else's business, which means that you rent your time to that business for a wage and potential benefits for your time invested. You choose NOT to be responsible for making certain the business survives, but you also should not expect the business to think of you as the first priority. Business MUST MAKE ENOUGH PROFIT to take care of many things over and above employees wages. If a business cannot do that, they will not continue.

Be a business owner: You choose to own your own business and be COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE for making sure that you provide a product or service that can allow you to earn profits. Those profits must pay for employee wages, workers compensation insurance, social security taxation, liability insurance, capitol costs, operating expenses, regulatory expenses, benefits, healthcare costs, etc. If you manage to earn enough profit and can pay all these expenses, you might have enough left over to pay yourself for the privilege of taking all the risks and doing it some more.

So Obama blows off meetings with important allies so he can be interviewed on "The View", and the associated press doesn't even balk at it, but Romney skips a meeting where he must entertain children that won't be voting, and the associated press thinks that is news worthy...really? Really?

There is a third option that you overlook Facts. You don't have to be an employer or employee, you could work for the Government. Good pay and benefits and your sole purpose is not to produce anything but rather make it harder and more expensive for companies and working people to get by.

"Elizabeth Warren law license problem goes to Court"

Michael Fredrickson, the General Counsel of the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers was initially a prominent defender of Elizabeth Warren's legal work while on the Harvard faculty but has now been presented with new facts and agrees that Warren may now be in a heap of trouble.

Surely Martha Coakley will investigate this to the fullest extent. Oh..wait, didn't she lose a campaign against Scott Brown.

Oh Nevermind…. This is Corruptachusetts after all.

Hi Funny,

I had thought about the government employee option as well as the government program recipient option, but I decided not to include those options because neither of them contribute to the system. I was addressing the only two options that actually contribute to our system, but good catch.

Many of the Governments financial problems can be blamed on Christopher Columbus. If Chris had discovered America on a Sunday instead of Monday the Government wouldn't have had to shut down for the day and give all Govt. workers another paid holiday. If Walmart or McDonalds would take would steal a page from the Governments handbook they wouldn't be in the financial crisis that they are in now.

Teachers are an interesting lot. Always complaining and threatening strikes. In the public sector if you told an employee they would have all of these paid vacaion and sick days during the year not to mention the entire summer off and other great benefits they wouldn't make a squeek.

JF, you should listen to yourself,
“Romney repaired the economic ills for the Olympics and then came and fixed the economic ills for Massachusetts...both times, NOT TAKING A PAYCHECK. That may not hold much water with you, but it says a lot to me...”

The Olympics is yesterday’s newspaper and any good CEO could have done the same thing, NOT TAKING A PAYCHECK, well, OF COUSE NOT if you are just here as a stepping stone for a run for the Presidency, DO YOU REALLY THINK HE CARES ABOUT THE PEOPLE ????? 47% that SAYS A LOT MORE TO ME…..
Really JF, this man is only after the prestige of the office, he cares little about people of this country, look what the Bush Administration did, the country was on the verge of a DEPRESSION, is that not correct??
The only good that will come out of Romney winning the presidency is that I will have the enormous satisfaction of coming back here and telling you “SEE I TOLD YOU SO BUT YOU WOULD NOT LISTEN” and that will be at the cost of the country probably going into another Depression as before, so we’ll see…..
But, my bet is the American people will get it right and prevent me from having to do that!
