I'm glad all those social programs that are leading your state to become the a$$hole of the country are making you all fit.
Enjoy it while it lasts, because when you hit bottom and Obama has the government there ahead of you, you're going to be on your own.
Might as well become the Unites State of Mexicali.
Cato Institute: Welfare pays more than work:
Obama has increased welfare to 35% of the population. He's increased government as a percentage of GDP from 37% to 43%, at a corresponding loss to the private sector.
But that's the point, you idiot liberal California freaks don't realize that the private sector PAYS for the government and all those giveaway programs like free cars, free phones, free college, free food, free healthcare.
Not sustainable, and unless Mitt Romney wins this election, you will soon find out. California IS in jeopardy, and don't look to the feds to bail you out, as Obama's seen our debt rating dropped TWICE now, FIRST TIME IN HISTORY.
FOOLS. Ignorant FOOLS.

Quick someone get me a toilet wiper with Willard Mitt Romney's or Paul D. Ryan's face on it.

where does MITT romney stand on afghamnistan??
what makes his policies different that those of the president??
can anyone of you answer me??
or does talking actual policy make you sick somehow??
you guys sure do talking points well??
but actual discussions, seem to be WAY out of bounds for you tools on the right side of the aisle??
ryan wasnt afraid of going up against BideN?
why would anyone be scared of me??
#1672 Oct 14, 2012
mabey you could point to some example in history, where the federal governemnt has bailed out a state??
they have bailed out cities before??
but no states yet.
wall st on the other hand has been privy to 930 billion(in troubled assets relief) from both presidents BUSH.
touche sir teabuttlican.

the a**hole of the coutry???
have you ever been here, when it is ten below everywhere else in the US??
california has the 9th highest median income....
states near that gulf oil spill have the lowest....
I wonder who's policies are better??
rape and plunder the environment?? or preserve it for tourism??, which spreads MONEY around MUCH better than oil profits...
"the private sector pays for the governemnt"??..... I guess you forgot to mention all the "people" who pay for the bailouts to "the private sector" , namely wall st.
let me clue you into what is going to happen to the country if romney were elected......
the EXACT same thing that happened to it during the last republican administration....
our economy went into cardiac arrest!!!
it was shedding 700000 jobs a month when Obama took office!!
good job with the economy republican party!!
now you guys want the keys back?? because Obama didnt fix it fast enough??
who can trust romney??
you think austerity measures are on the way if romney wins???
try increases in spending for the military and another round of tax cuts for the wealthy after these expire.
leading to the same results..... trillions of dollars further in debt!!.
Obama is just cleaning up after the mess your party made!!
and BOY was it a party.....
the wealthy, even though they claim they are being taxed to death??
managed to OFFSHORE 32 trillion dollars!!
wow are they hurtin for cash...!!! and that is just liquid assets!!
in other words?? the tip of the iceberg( a good analogy, I think, since they try to hide their money)

...okkay? enjoy your $6.oo a gallon of gas then....
Since: Sep 10
#1678 Oct 14, 2012
...oh i forgot....when obama was selected, gas prices was $1.89 a gallon, not an once, there is a record of foodstamps usuage, true unumployment 10-15%, ssi benifits way up, governmotors (electric ) going bankrupt, and every "green"job obama has created, in the sewer!! and we want more obama? really?......you cannot have an economy without "fuel", period!!! its the engine of the economy, if you want to go back to the dark ages........KILL FUEL!!!
#1679 Oct 14, 2012
cry me a river over gas prices!!!
that has been a lame talking point(of the right) all year.
im sure you were up in arms, when BUsh had gas over 400 a gallon in the summer of 08'.
it is day trading of oil that drives the price up anyways..
..middle men if you will, all of them located on wall st NYC.
the president only has power over the strategic reserve, which BUsh was adding to needlessly, to help HIS buddies on wall st.
your party tanked the economy really really bad, Jondee, and now you guys want the keys back because obama didnt fix it fast enough for you.??? sorry.
bush didnt GET gas back to 189 a gallon.....why??
because the world oil market runs on speculation of what market conditions will exist in 6-8 months down the road.....why?? because it takes months to drill, transport, refine and bring to market the finished product.
the markets saw that Obama had won, and they reacted quite quickly!! he ran on a green energy platform, so when he won??? green futures skyrocketed?? and oil futures plummeted...
once IT was seen by the market, that THAT wasnt going to be part and parcel of this presidential term??? another huge reason was the recession that Bush left us with.....demand in the nation plummeted for a while. but came back as the stim took effect.
I dont think you have a good grasp of reality if you swallow the line that "every green job is in the sewer"
here in california?? green energy is a BOOMING business?
why? because once a solar or wind array(big or small) has paid for itself?? you get free power forever....
and that is appealing to people's sense of self interest, left or right.
mabey you should wiki the subject to find out the truth.

Oil speculators are driving the price of oil rather than supply and demand. Hey, capitalism is really great isn't it?

It only took us four years to discover how badly we were fooled by
candidate Barack Obama.
Why has it taken us so long to recognize that candidate Boxer's
primiary qualification is her repeated failure to oppoaw higher taxes,
to expose Solyndra-type green scams, to demand that our oil and
natural gas be used to the max, and to demand an end to EPA
regulations that will not save the Planet but will steal our wealth?
If repeating an action that does not work is a definition of insanity
then re-electing a politician who cannot function sensibly makes us
all nuttier than fruitcakes.

Still hiding out are ya?
Try a hoodie next time.
#1687 Oct 14, 2012
and replacing him with a vulture capitalist is the answer??
when you say wealth??, Im guessing you mean your oil stocks....
because that is the only way that going solar could "steal wealth"
I think your the one who is about as nutty as a fruit cake.
#1688 Oct 14, 2012
It only took us eight years to discover how badly we were fooled by
candidate George Bush and Jr.
Why has it taken us so long to recognize that candidate Willard Mitt Romney's primiary qualification is repeated failure to oppose higher taxes, to demand that our oil and natural gas tax give aways be used to the max?
If repeating an action that does not work is a definition of insanity then re-electing a politician who cannot function sensibly makes us
all nuttier than fruitcakes. Or be called a Republican, tea bagger for the rest of yur life.

theyll eventually try to privatize government at the federal level, if we let them.??
they have already destroyed the 17th amendment in the state of michigan.
public education is their next privatization target!!!
they want to brainwash (with foolish self centered philosophies) anyone who will listen, at one of those "charter schools"
