Bobby Jindal says, "stop being the stupid party"! What do you think he meant?

Fool, if I do as you say, I will get websites with info from people like you, nothing to back it up; only general negative and racist comments. Why would I waste my time?

PolitiFact is a respected website. Check it out for yourself. Or, are you afraid of the truth?

How do you spot a liberal?
If they don't agree with you, you're a racist.

Politifact? Never heard of it. Sounds like some kind of obscure fringe organization. Must not have much of a folllowing. I am well connected to all popular news sites, and if i never heard of it, It can't be worth much.

The state of the union is poor.Truthfully, if a person has any real world experience, he really doesn't need a website to give him the facts. My real world experiences has shown me the truth. When i give an example of something that is wrong with the world, its from a personal experience. Its not from anything I heard on Foxnews.

I learned all on my own, that most down and out people deserve to be down and out.( learned that after being suckered into assisting at least two dozen slick scammers over the years. They had real good stories to explain why they were homeless or jobless.) In the end the truth comes out, and everything makes sense.

Someone like "Mr.Info" would suggest that I don't know a dam thing about homeless people, and that I somehow took my opinions on "down and out" from someone else. Or that I'm jsut repeating something I heard.
But in fact, I know so much about the survival techniques of homeless down and out people, I could teach the course on both sides. I could teach a homeless guy how to find suckers, and I could teach an average citizen how to recognized the fake hardtimes guy. But how on Earth can a successful small businessman be so informed? How can he be so sure that nearly all homeless or down and out people deserve every lick of their misery?
Because unlike the idiots who will hand out a twenty dollar bill to a stranger at the gas station who is trying to get to the hospital to see his mother, I ask him to turn the key on, and show me how much gas he has on the gage. Then I ask him what is mom in the hospital for. How long has she been there? I ask him where he lives, and then he gets annoyed with me, and just walks away.

Intelligent people seek out the truth, ignorant people yell out negative comments (nothing to do with the discussion) and then run and hide.

Where do you fit in?

A poll was taken after the SOTU and the MAJORITY thought it was good. You are in the minority; you know the party that lost the election.

Your personal experiences are of ONE PERSON, not a MAJORITY. Can't believe I had to explain that to you.

If you DON'T want to help people, then DON'T. Not all people asking for help is running a scam. Again, can't believe I have to explain that to you.

Helping people in need is the best feeling in the world. If someone scams you, it is on them; not you!

The SAD part about your statement is that in a POOR community like Church Point so many white republican babies are born on welfare. Parents and Grandparents don't want to take about it.

Again, with Planned Parenthood, abortions are down. Are you too stupid to get it? or are you still watching Fox News (not big on credibility)?

Look at Professional Sports. I bet there are more Black millionaires playing than white. Look at small businesses and the medical and entertainment fields. Times are a changing and I don't think you can handle it!

Black, white, red people that apply themselves have moved up in the world. Why haven't you?

I, like many people, worked for what I have.

Why would you say something so mean?

What are you so afraid of?

People like you are easily fooled into believing anything, right?

Don't hate anyone. That would be against God.

I call it like I see it.

Its like Gov. Scott Walker said after he was elected. "Divide and Conquer" when he went after collective bargaining. The 1% will NOT give up K Street (Lobbyist). See a double standard? By the way, wasn't it the Repubs that accused POTUS of "dividing the country"?

Cutting taxes has not and will not improve the economy. The past 30 years is proof of this. Remember, 47% of the US is at or below the poverty level. Inequality is at an all time high.(keep in mind, back in the 50's, it was more equal (higher tax rate on UNEARNED INCOME). Kinda blows Mitt R.'s campaign out of the water. He would NOT have the money he has in foreign banks today based on the ideals/tax laws of the 50's.

Average hard working poor people who want a safe place for their retirement money cannot get a good return on money they put in banks.

Keep in mind, you are not dead yet. Could you survive a loss of job or a terminal illness?

How much evidence will it take for you to get it?

One other thing, the 47% of "takers" Mitt Romney was speaking about are:

1. disabled veterans
2. senior citizens
3. unmarried women with children
(deadbeat fathers not paying)
4. a few cheaters

The money Mitt made on Wallstreet was taxed at unearned tax rate (no payroll taxes). I guess that would make him a taker too!(POTUS is trying to fix this loophole.)

It's all in how you look at it!

To put it in perspective. There are fewer cheaters on welfare than there are in Congress, head of corporations and on WallStreet.

Get it?

You don't seem to have issues with the cheaters that steal millions, but with the ones that are stealing thousands.

Think about it.
