the people that pay the vast majority of the taxes in this country get far more tax breaks than the people that pay little or no taxes? Are you serious?

former Texas Air National Guard pilots who flew formation with Bush during training missions and flight crew who strapped him into his cockpit before flights.

“It’s a load of [equine excrement],” said one.

Still, most were at a loss to explain gaps in Bush’s pay record while in Alabama, where he transferred to a non-flying unit for about six months in 1972 to work on the political campaign of a family friend. One offered that Guardsmen who performed “equivalent duty” outside their primary base typically weren’t paid for those drills, but still earned points or credits toward retirement.

Putting other rumors to rest was easier for the former airmen, though all confess to being staunch Republican friends and supporters of Bush.

“I don’t know about Alabama, because I wasn’t there,” said former Staff Sgt. Dan Liles, who was in Bush’s Texas unit.“But I know he was at every meeting at Ellington, because I used to strap him in his F-102 and send him off.”

The newly released records show Bush, a lieutenant in the Texas Air National Guard, ranked No. 22 in a class of 53 pilots when he finished his flight training at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia in 1969.

Over the next three years, he logged 326.4 hours as a pilot and an additional 9.9 hours as a co-pilot, mostly in his the F-102A jet used to intercept enemy aircraft. Of the 278 hours he flew in the interceptor, about 77 hours were in the TF-102A, the two-seat trainer version of the one-seat fighter jet.

"No one saw him," You are one pathetic loser!!

Before the U.S.-backed counterinsurgency in El Salvador ended in 1992, some 75,000 people had died and D'Aubuisson's right-wing ARENA party had become the country's dominant political force. In 1993, a U.N. truth commission determined that D'Aubuisson had ordered Romero's assassination.(D'Aubuisson, however, had died a year earlier of throat cancer.)
A number of key U.S. officials who participated in the Central American butchery – the likes of Elliott Abrams, John Negroponte and Otto Reich – have remained active in American politics and some landed prominent jobs in George W. Bush's administration.
Last year, the leftist FMLN, the political heirs of the revolutionary movement of 30 years ago, finally ousted ARENA from power. In their electoral victory, the leftists hailed the inspiration they drew from Romero's martyrdom.
After winning the presidency, FMLN candidate Mauricio Funes said,“I will govern like Monsignor Romero wanted the men of his time to govern, with courage, but with prophetic vision. Bishop Romero asked the rulers to listen to the cry of justice from the Salvadoran people."

Fannie has been a piggybank for Democrats for years. What you dont have here is a record of what Fannie paid to lobbyists to entertain and grease Democrats. You also dont have a record of the number of deals and trades Fannie did as payback to Democrat political contributors. Of course these were trades or deals that lost money for Fannie but made money for the contributor.

You had Fast Frankie Raines,Clinton head book cooker and Obama advisor,cooking the books and hiding trades to make multi millions in bonuses. You had Jamie Gorelick as Co Ceo for a period of time. This is the woman who built the wall between CIA and FBI so knowledge of China political contributions would remain secret.

You have Barney Frank who fought every attempt by Republicans to put new strict regulations on Fannie several years ago after Raines had looted it. BArney also tried to stop every investigation of Fannie. Barney is now one of the people most involved in solving a problem he created. If Republicans had defeated BArney,Fannie might not have gone BK. It must be remembered Fannie went at least two years under Raines and after without releasing any financials. Its a miracle they stayed as a listed stock.

This is bigger than Enron. Raines is not in jail. This is bigger than Watergate.

Barney Frank and the Media stopped Republicans from reigning in Fannie so people who could not buy homes they couldnt afford.

Notice many of the people on the list,such as Dodd and Conrad were also getting cheap mortgages from the Tan Man at Countrywide. Fannie bought all of Countrywide fraudulent paper and bad paper while these clowns looked the other way. Why arent they in jail?

It is all Mormons all the time. 150 years and the White Horse Prophecy is a pathologically lying, smutfaced fratboy whining about the other side being too mean.

Mormon isn't a religion. It's a corporation and PAC with a religion as a front. How creepy is this.

"Mormons’ First Families Rally Behind Romney

...Now, more than 150 years later, descendants of those first families of Mormonism are joining together in a new effort: delivering the White House to Mitt Romney, whose great-great-grandfather Miles Romney settled alongside many of their ancestors in Nauvoo in 1841 and joined their torturous migration.

These families — Marriotts, Rollinses, Gardners and others — have formed a financial bulwark and support network for Mr. Romney at every important point in his political career. Starting with his 1994 Senate race, moving into the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics effort that became his political springboard and continuing through his first foray into presidential politics, they have been there to open doors, provide seed money and rally support. "

"When he ran for governor of Massachusetts after the Olympics, Mr. Romney seemed tentative about relying too much on his Utah network, given the sense among his aides that Mr. Kennedy had used his Mormon ties against him.

But he brought two top aides from his Olympics tenure with him to Boston when he won office: Mr. Stirling, his Utah-focused finance director, and Mr. Zwick, whose father is a senior church official, W. Craig Zwick (In an interview with a church publication several years ago the elder Zwick said his maternal ancestors go “back in church history to Hyrum” Smith.)

And after the midway point of Mr. Romney’s term, the two left Mr. Romney’s administration to help his nascent presidential effort, quickly seeking donations from his waiting network of Mormon supporters, as well as from his other worlds.

Utah quickly emerged as one of Mr. Romney’s main donor bases, with Mr. Roney, Mr. Gardner, Spence Eccles and Mr. Huntsman Sr. serving on his national finance team.

This year, with Mr. Zwick at Mr. Romney’s campaign, Mr. Stirling is working at Restore Our Future."

NYT

Now these people can go into the Temple and have super secret whatnots with Bishop Romputz but other Americans are not invited.

How creepy is this. Someone running for POTUS who attends super secret ceremonies other Americans are not allowed to attend or even understand.

Sounds like all the pathological lying and tax return dodging is cultural.

All Romneys billionaire buddies are lining up to bribe Romney hoping he will get elected so they all can have a tax holiday and bring their money back to America from their foreign bank accounts like Romney too. Republicans do not like to pay their fairs share of taxes like they expect the working middle class to do. No Romney in November.
I cannot believe you even say stuff like that after Obama brought in all his Chicago thugs, including a communist (Van Jones) and communist sympathizer (Valerie Jarrett) and the lying AG Eric Holder, and appointed tax evaders (Timothy Geithner), one with mob ties (Richard Griffin), et al.

You guys on the left don't have a leg to stand on with this president, which is why he's working so hard to try to make Romney look bad. The thing is, Romney couldn't, on his worst day, look as bad as Obama.

Under Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8, a person only has to be an established resident of Hawaii, not necessarily a U.S. citizen, and pay taxes there for one year to be able to register an out-of-state or foreign-born person with an official Hawaii birth certificate.
“If a nation’s security is only as strong as its weakest link, then America may be in serious trouble,” Arpaio said in a statement.“Hawaii may be our weakest link and could have a serious impact on our nation’s immigration policy.”

You're a Fraud that has problem interpreting what you read.

here's the Hawaii Law....

Where is the "Word Foreign Born" in the law? Obama would have to had waited a year after his birth to register for that Birth Certificate, the announcement of his Birth came a year before he would have been qualified for a Birth Certificate if he were no born in Hawaii.

Arpaio, is a Sheriff, and as such he's a poor investigator. Maybe his reading skills are as lacking as yours.

[§338-17.8] Certificates for children born out of State.(a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.
(b) Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate. The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.
(c) The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91.[L 1982, c 182,§1]

You can navigate the reading of the Hawaii Law, right?

oh please, in the worse global economy in the history of the world, as our Alies cut spending and suffer from 25% unemployment, Under Obama in America he has created 4.5 Million private sector jobs, which compared to 8 years of Bush creating zero private sector job growth and 1.7 Million Federal jobs is a complete turn around to the disaster he inherited in Feb 2009 from George Bush.

yet you guys say he he's not focused on job growth..... ROFLMAO
