Big GOP donors see small return on investment:

Among the biggest losers on Tuesday was conservative strategist Karl Rove, and not just because his side lost. The Fox News analyst, who questioned his network's decision to call the election for President Obama on air after earlier incorrectly predicting a Romney victory, also has to reckon with the reality that his big-spending super PAC, American Crossroads, got almost no return on the more than $100 million it spent to influence the election.

A study by the Sunlight Foundation found that just 1.29 percent of the nearly $104 million it spent in the general election ended with the desired result. In addition to spending $85 million to defeat Mr. Obama and $6.5 million to support Mitt Romney, the group spent millions more opposing Democratic Senate candidates Bill Nelson in Florida, Jon Tester in Montana, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, and Tim Kaine in Virginia - all of whom won. The only candidates it supported who won were Republicans Deb Fisher in Nebraska and Dean Heller in Nevada, who the group spent a combined $1.3 million to support.

The return for American Crossroads' sister group, Crossroads GPS, was not much better. Crossroads GPS, which keeps its donors secret, saw a 14 percent return on the $70 million it spent. Another conservative outside group, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, saw just a 6.9 percent return on its $33 million in spending. The National Rifle Association's return on its nearly $12 million in spending: 0.81 percent.

Latino power: Suddenly, Sean Hannity wants immigration reform:

Now he wants reform???????? LOL!
If you cant beat 'em join 'em.....LMAO!

It is a cold, hard slap in the face to conservatives: 71 percent of Latinos voted for President Obama.

The result: Listen to how some leading conservative voices are tripping over each other to say that the Republican Party should step up and support immigration reform.

And no, not in the way that Mitt Romney suggested — through “self-deportation.” And it won’t help to keep talking about “anchor babies”— a discredited “phenomenon” which has sucked up a lot of time on Fox News

And then there’s House Speaker John Boehner, who told ABC News Thursday:

“This issue has been around far too long…A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself and others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.”

Whoa! That was a bit too fast for Rep. John Fleming, R-La., who said Boehner was “getting ahead of House Republicans when he commits to getting a ‘comprehensive approach’ to immigration.”

“There’s been zero discussion of this issue within the conference, and I’m urging the speaker to talk with House Republicans before making pledges on the national news,” Fleming said.

But Grover Norquist, the conservative puppeteer and president of Americans for Tax Reform, is on board.“Republicans should approach it as the party of Reagan and Bush — the party that has historically been pro-immigration.” He’s been on board for a while. Even pre-election.

Immigration is a win-win-win. It can be the tip of an olive branch Republicans extend to Latinos. President Obama can finally fulfill his 2008 campaign promise on immigration reform. And it can provide hope to the 12-plus million undocumented immigrants.

LOL!

I guess now that the Republicans and Tea Baggers are starting to realize that even having the ability to anonymously dump hundreds of millions of dollars into the Election 2012 campaign cycle couldn't buy the United States for Rove, and Trump, and the Koch Brothers, they might have to start playing by the rules of the US Constitution again?

What a concept!

Face it, BOYS! You CAN'T BUY THE USA if you can't brainwash a majority of Americans into believeing your pandering BS! You had your chance, and you screwed it up by forgetting what the USA is all about! People working with each other and looking out after each other as we strive to always bring our nation closer to our cultural ideals of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and equality between all citizens!

So, what sank Romney?

Answer: Wall Street sank Romney (and McCain before him).

The Republicans need to learn to deal with that. They are fools if they let the Wall Street crowd deflect public anger with Wall Street toward lax immigration controls and more cheap labor for business. Ordinary middle-class Republicans need to tell Wall Street to take a hike, once and for all. And they need to let the Democrats raise taxes on the rich in Wall Street to pay for all the government bennies soaked up by the illegal immigrants doing all that cheap labor for the rich. After all, it was the business wing of the Republican party that kept pushing -- and still keeps pushing -- for lax immigration controls.

Meanwhile, lots of non-Hispanic Dems (and even some Hispanic Dems) do NOT support amnesty (whatever its thin disguise). Even when the Democrats had the House during Obama's first two years, the Congress did not pass it. And even during the last two years, the Democrats in the Senate never voted for it. Why not?? Because lots of non-Hispanic Dems do NOT want amnesty. Instead, they want immigration Control -- along with most independents and most Republicans (other than the Wall Street crowd and the Chamber of Commerce crowd and the Agribusiness crowd).

Let me explain something to all you dumb a#$, right wing parrots who keep repeating the lines you have learned from the likes of Limbaugh, Fox Nooze and the rest of the right wing echo chamber concerning TAXES-Taxes are not something which rich people have to pay to "take care" of folks who do not work, or do not want to work, which is one of your favorite LIES. Taxes are what you pay in order to maintain the very system which your greedy and stupid @sse$ are taking advantage of, or TRYING to put yourselves in position to take advantage of. Income tax rates are currently at the lowest rates since there has BEEN an income tax in this country, and yet you people continue to LIE about being over-taxed. How in hell do you right wing freaks think that you can live here in America, take advantage of the greatest system of economic opportunity on the planet and not have to pay a damned thing, or a PITTANCE, into that system? A system which, by the way, as built with blood, sweat and dollars before you morons were ever heard of? It was built by people who understood what SHARED SACRIFICE means; that NO ONE built a fortune without any help whatsoever from WITHOUT. This is true no matter how much you folks wish that it were not. You people sit with your thumbs up your southern orifices while American corporations make BILLIONS by sucking off the Government teet; snatching up no-bid, cost-plus guarantee laden Government contracts and say nothing, yet when some black or brown single mother gets 10 dollars more than she should have on her county check, you hypocrites want to hang her up by her thumbs. If you hate people getting free sh!t by way of Government handouts, how about these staunchly Republican Southern farmers who make more off of the Government buying up their unsold crops than they do from SELLING them?

If you don't like paying taxes for participating in this American system, why don't you simply stop USING all the things which this tax money pays for? In other words, no insurance for your money, no use of OUR roads, bridges, airways, public education including state universities, the socialist 911 emergency system and many, many more things which you fools take for granted without even considering how all these things came about. If not, shut up about YOUR tax money going to "take care" of other people.

It is not cool to be greedy, mean and ignorant, regardless of what your right wing entertainment leaders keep telling you.

Statutes of limitation are not technicalities.

In Ledbetter, for example, the Supreme Court pointed to the dead witness, stating it is unfair to fail to put an adversary on notice within a specific time period because employers should not have to defend claims far in the past.

The court reflected that it does not want to alter congressional deadlines.
.
.
.

In 2009, the Democratic-controlled Congress amended Title VII, allowing a suit to be brought within 180 days of any "discriminatory compensation decision"—in other words, any too-low paycheck.

In its legislative "findings," Congress proclaimed that the Ledbetter Supreme Court decision "undermines ..

. protections by restricting the time period ..

. contrary to the intent of Congress."

...
...
...

So the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was premised on the legislators' pretending that Congress was not responsible for the precise words of its own law setting the 180-day deadline.

.
.

It is amazing that our law professor/president, who has repeatedly misstated the Ledbetter law and facts, does not know this legal history.

.
.

Or maybe he does.

Okay fine, how much should they pay? 50%? 60%? 90%?

Tell me, how much????

BTW, government programs like food stamps, LIHEAP, section 8 are paid for by working people paying taxes, so, we are taking care of other people with our taxes.

Wanting to keep money that you earned is not being greedy. Government wanting more of MY money to give to OTHER PEOPLE who don't want to work is being greedy.

But, you are probably one of those OTHER PEOPLE who suck of the government teat.

He's been doing it forever. Even when he faces refutation, he'll continue to hurl the same bits of propaganda. He's become so deranged that even as he decries socialism and communism he's posted articles from Russia Today. Which, at least beats his usual Fox News, Daily Caller and ATR ones.

Arguing with him is futile. He demands you pay attention to what he says but then completely ignores anything that damages or dismantles it. And he makes sure to posts snippets from his antagonist-of-the-moment so we know who he's likely fuming over right now up in Erie. Which, it seems, is primarily me for the moment since I hurt his feelings and he called me a bully. He's so insecure he can't even write an original sentence on his own; the guy has to lift them all from outside sources and replace names.

Maybe used to have decent ideas, I don't know. I ignored this topic for most of the past couple years. But he seems to have been so overcome with bitterness and denial that he's been reduced to this now.
