One day a homeless man was out collecting cans. He came upon a trash barrel with an aborted fetus in it and said hey you're not supposed to be in there. The aborted fetus replied I know, I wasn't born yesterday :(.

Wasnt Brown a State Senator before he was a US Senator? The latest Brown ad says he voted for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act but doesnt make it clear if he voted for the Act when he was State Senator or US Senator.I dont think that Brown would intentionally lie.
Warren, a different story. Warren has been way over the top with desperate accusations,i.e., Brown is lock step with Republicans when its common knowledge Brown is bi-partisan, Brown is against working families when both Brown, who has always had more than one job, and his wife, worked for a living raising two daughters, that Brown doesnt care about the middle class and favors tax breaks for the wealthy when Brown favors tax cuts for all. And look at Warren. She favors the middle class because she made $250,000.00 off of their pain and suffering and who knows how much she made off of claims we dont know anything about. And as for the wealthy, Warren didnt care about their tax breaks when she took campaign donations from them. Yep, different story when it comes to Warren.

Wasnt Brown s state senator before he was US senator? The latest Brown ad doesnt make clear when he voted. I dont think Brown would intentionally lie. Warren, is a different story.
Warren did lie when she accused Brown of being lock step with Republicans when its common knowledge he is bi-partisan.
Warren also lied when she accused Brown of being against working families. The allegation doesnt make common sense, Brown, who has always held more than one job at a time, and his wife, have worked to raise there daughters and put them through college. Warren on the other hand, took advantage of middle class families and got paid $250,000.00 to make sure that asbsetos victims and their families got the bare minimum for claims they filed, which was 40 times less than what Warren got paid.
Warren lied when she said that Brown doesnt care about women. If that were true, Brown wouldnt have the many female supporters that he has. And I believe that he did vote to nominate most of Obamas' female candidates for judgeships.
Warren lied when she alleged that Brown only cares about giving tax breaks to the wealthy. Warren didnt care about the wealthy getting tax breaks when they lined her pockets with their money donations. Just who are the wealthy that she is talking about? Certainly not the wealthy celebs that gave money to Obama.
And what about Warren's heritage? Why wont she release her Harvard job application? We already know that Warren listed her auntie as White on the auntie's death certificate. This is the same auntie who is supposed to be of Indian heritage.
Who knows what other wallopers that she is going to tell as we get near to Nov 6th?

No, his ad says "he supports" - he wasn't in the US Senate to vote on fair pay.
#3034 Oct 31, 2012
Huh, so what Brown didnt vote on the Act. When I first saw the ad I thought it was stating that brown voted for the Ledbetter Act, too. After seeing it a couple of times, it does say he supports the fair pay act. The ad was in response to Warren's false accusation that Brown doesnt believe in equal pay for women. I really find Warrens accusation not believable.
#3035 Oct 31, 2012
That's not exactly true but neither party should pay too much attention to the polls. When brown ran the first time, they had him down by 5 pts a couple of days before the election. The pollsters call house phones. How many people these days do not have house phones and don't get polled? Guess we'll find out on Tuesday.

I encourage you to join us in voting for Elizabeth! You do understand that this Republican Congress has been the nations historically worst/laziest in our history!!
All politics aside, we cannot allow this as America goes through its worst ten year recession in its history! Obstructionist Republicans must go and never allowed to return!
One thing that we can notlook past is thatScott Brown wasin fact useful tool in the Republicans filabuster efforts even concerning the votes which you credit Scott with siding with Dems!!!
A study was conducted and it has been found that the bills that Scott voted alondside Dems NEVER got passed and many never got voted on!!!!!
This voter manipulation will not fool the voters any longer!

When hes needed, he has to vote with his Republican leadership. His survival in Congress is different than his survival at home, said Mr. Crotty, noting that Mr. Brown is able to more easily cross the aisle on noneconomic and social issues, along with those destined to pass the Senate by a wide margin.
In addition to the Congressional Quarterly analysis, Mr. Brown ranks as the third most moderate Republican member of the Senate on a scale devised by DW-NOMINATE, which issues annual assessments based on a methodology developed by two political scientists in the 1980s.
Meanwhile, a Washington Post review of votes taken in the current Congress found Mr. Brown has sided with his party 66 percent of the time placing him as the third most moderate Republican in the Senate.
Mr. Brown also has a voting score of 62 from the American Conservative Union, but the group only gives awards for conservatism to legislators who score over an 80, according to a spokeswoman.
I am one of those vanishing breeds of senator, the ones in the middle who are trying to work together to get things done, Mr. Brown contended during the conclusion of the most recent debate with Ms. Warren.
Ms. Warren sees it differently.
Scott Brown has been fundraising across the country on the importance of Republican control of the Senate as a hedge against President Obamas agenda, said Alethea Harney, a spokeswoman for Ms. Warren.His vote is a vote for a Republican majority.
Mr. Brown has moved across the aisle on some high-profile Senate votes since arriving following a special election in 2010. That year, he was one of just three Republican senators to vote for the so-called Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, and he joined seven Republican colleagues in voting with the Democratic majority to end the Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy thereby allowing gays to serve openly in the military.
More recently, he was one of two GOP senators to vote against a Republican plan that would have extended all Bush era tax cuts for one year, and also lined up with Democrats on legislation ranging from efforts to increase cybersecurity, create jobs for veterans, and provide incentives for businesses to bring jobs back from overseas. The latter three proposals were all blocked by procedural votes supported by most of Mr. Browns Republican colleagues, thereby cutting off debate before a final vote could have been taken.
But a study released this past May by ProgressMass, a liberal-leaning advocacy group, found that Mr. Brown had participated in Republican-backed filibuster attempts 75 percent of the time on legislation that was supported by at least half of the Senate. These measures would have passed on an up-or-down vote by a simple majority of the Senate, but were blocked mostly by Republicans before they could be brought to the floor, the group said.
Scott Browns misleading claims of bipartisanship ring hollow when we take a close look at his actual voting record, said ProgressMass spokesman Mathew Helman.On the votes where he could have displayed true bipartisan leadership, Republican Scott Brown overwhelmingly supported his right-wing Republican colleagues.
Among the votes cited by the group were three involving jobs legislation backed by President Obama, as well as a proposal to implement the so-called Buffett rule, which would apply a minimum tax rate of 30 percent to individuals making more than $1 million per year.
Ms. Warren has attacked Mr. Brown for voting along party lines when it comes to issues of the economy and taxation, as well as for joining Republicans this year to block a bill that promoted equal pay for women and for his 2010 opposition to the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.
Senator Brown doesnt want to talk about his voting record; he just wants to launch attacks, Ms. Warren said during their most recent debate.

any thing that supports democrats is happy with the last mess the dems jammed up our congress that doubled the deficit, multiplied the last 200 years debt by 1.5 or so.
Dems are parisites
in massachusetts dems have been raping Catholic boys to make holier abortionists for 30 years.
Would a little boy think the child next to him is his ?
Babykillers tend to be an unsavory lot and they see this as a way to gt a cute kid and their stolen genes will win them GOD's grace or some stuff like that.
Monkey boy in the whitehouse has his dad tortured. bury the democrats at sea and let Hillary go free

What is wrong with Obamacare? What is different from the Romney healthcare in Mass??
If you do notlike certain aspects of the Obama healthcare plan then amend those parts!
Republicans are all about POLITICS! Republicans have ELIMINATED Job opportunity within America!
Outsourcing is EXCLUSIVELY accomplished through the IMPROPER use of loop holes in American Anti-trust laws!
Give us a break! Even if Republicans maintain control,Please toss Boehner out! He stands for NOTHING at all but POLITCS!
Christy and Obama cooperation is EXACTLY what AMERICA needs!And YES the REPUBLICANS utilized ALL their time OBSTRUCTING OBAMA!!!
Our county has ad TEN straight years of recession and all the Republicans have put forward is Obstruction measures!!
Bushcalled for an EMERGENCY ECONOMIC SUMMIT as the American economy was in COMPLETE free fall!!! This fee fall wasleft to Obama. The American economy was projected to completely collaspse regardlessof who wasto be president! It was already n motion and you KNOW IT!
#3044 Nov 1, 2012
Mitt Romney is part o Americas problem! He is partof the corporate communist world who makes their money off exploiting loop holes in the antitrust laws of America!
Trump admits to utilizing the loop holes!
Romney is currently earning Millions off outsourcing of American jobs wich is ILLEGAL!!!!
You cannot unjustly terminate an Americans empoyment as you in turn rehire for that same position!! This is a discriminatory practice and i is CLEAR!!!
Romney is close in the polls because of the lack of Americans voting! The less that votes the better Romney chances!!!
Small busnesses are not hirering because there is a shrunken consumer spender base!Not because of health care costs!
Even Blue cross blue hield has outsourced thousands of employees over seas as their CEOs pull in Millions n bonuses!
Even if you hae ajob your disposable income is shrinking due to others that canot find employment.
Disposable incomes are utilized to fund small businesses!!
Your candiate Romney has benefitted personally as Americ became unemployed. He is a vulture capitalist /Communist!
And Yes,it is Communism and you know it! Eploiting loop holes concerning anti-trust laws of America concerning outsourcing of Americans jobs is ILLEGAL and a communist position!!!!!!!!
You and other Republcan fathfull falsly MOCK "it is free enterprise"! No it isn't as it is clearly COMMUNISM!
#3045 Nov 1, 2012
Brown and his supporters have no basis on which to champion him. He is a positioned operative for the Republican party.
I have to admit that the Republicans are tricky and calculated in their planning concerning politics.
America is worth more than politcis and camnnot continue to support politics any longer!
We need to first rid Congress of all Republican Obstructionist as the message will be heard clearly for other Republicans to align with the majority of America!
Boehner and others are only there to OBSTRUCT! They even signed a pact to obstruct Obama and made it official on the first day!
We must vote out ALL Obstructionist as they are obstructing America!
Disposable spending and the American consumer base has been shrinking drastically over the past TEN years! It has been a trend tha thas been in motion for over TEN years!
I would like to see Obama on day one of his re-election to cut ALL ties with the American Chamber of Commerce!!!!
I also would like for him to re-submit Anti-outsourcing legislation!!! We need laws that put a crushing TAX on American corporations who strive offof outsourcing and telecommunications TAXES on companies using American airwaves from abroad!!
Meanwhile eliminate all taxes for American companies who maintain 95% of all their employees based and emoployed in America!!
#3046 Nov 1, 2012
These vulture Capitalist/Communist have destroyed America! Yes they have put us in a position which is nearly impossible to return from.
The outsourcing became so BAD that we are in a position where we need to support it. It goes hand and hand with the statement, "we are damned if we do and we are damned if we don't"!
The Republicans have put us in a self destructing pattern. As they have based teachers and other municipal pensions in the hands of investments to outsource, we are now stuck on their success which has completely backfired!
Now there is nothing left of the American consumer market base to support the outsourced jobs overseas!!! They over exploited!!!!
One thing is Clear. We must reverse paths even if it means war!There is NO other option left on the table! They have outsourced our insurance company employees, all telecommunication jobs and almost 100% of manufacturing.
It has always been and will always be fact that a successful country MUST produce something!
The entire world economy may be affected but we must reverse this outsourcing and to start over!! America will succeeed as we need brave and strong leaders who take BOLD stances.
#3048 Nov 1, 2012
Hello everybody!!*hugs and kisses*
I guess all I have to say is that until we nominate a black homosexual female who is a Bruce Springstein fan and has a crush on Ellen I will have to cast my vote for Warren. She's a great dancer!
#3050 Nov 1, 2012
First of all, huh, it was Warren who placed Brown as voting on the Fair Pay Act by falsely alleging he voted against it.
What about WarrendaManipulat or? What is this bullcrap about abortion and Roe v Wade being threatened? What about when 4 Americans were being threatened in Benghazi?
I find it all too interesting that security was pulled from American Embassies in the Middle East and $716 billion dollars has been slashed from medicare for the elderly yet the government is willing to waste tax payers dollars on unwanted pregnancies when there are other options and choices available to women like using birth control, a morning after pill, abstain, give up for adoption, etc. Someone has to end wasteful government spending. Not only that, the birth rate is down for the last 4 years because women are not getting pregnant to begin with. They cant afford kids. Its so assinine and uncredible to see elderly women in Warrens tv commercials about womens rights regarding abortions being threatened. Dont tell me they plan on getting pregnant and then aborting.
With at least $50 billion in damages caused by Hurricane Sandy, do you really think that Obama isnt going to tax the middle class more than he claims he would? You wait and see if Warren gets in and if she doesnt vote along party lines. You'll get to see just how much she is not for the middle class and backs up everything Obama wants.
#3051 Nov 1, 2012
No kidding. Lizzie and Obama will fight to allow abortions of inconvenient babies to 13 year old girls with no parental consent but refuse to provide security to diplomats in danger zones. Priorities... It's all about priorities for them.
