keep paying your taxes clown the welfare people thank you LMAO!<quoted text>
Politically Liberal, a guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetter is often beyond liberal and nearly to the point of irrationality.
Typically the guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetter believes that a free ride can be provided to everyone, regardless of their motivation to work, create, innovate or to even wipe their own ass without help from the government.
Usually these guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetters love to "Help the poor" but always using resources obtained from others.
Statistically proven to give less of their own income to charity than the average conservatives.
Often white, often college educated and usually feels a misplaced sense of guilt at their own existence.
Normally dislikes the United States or any other place/people associated with freedom of thought, free markets or that horrid capitalistic system established in the Western World.

well if the 47% of moochers voted for obama how did he get to winning the election by over 51%.....LMAO!
The 2012 presidential election has obviously come and gone, but before we move on entirely, there's a little tidbit of statistical trivia that struck me as interesting -- and chart worthy.
Bloomberg reports today that, thanks to some provisional ballots that have now been counted in New York City, President Obama's popular-vote total is up to 51.06%. That wouldn't be especially interesting, were it not for the fact that Obama is the first presidential candidate since Dwight Eisenhower to top 51% twice.
In fact, in American history, this is a feat that's only been pulled off by six presidents: Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, William McKinley, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and now, Barack Obama.
In case you're wondering if Reagan made the cut, he came close, but ended up with 50.7% in 1980

"there's no doubt about how mad Republicans are about Benghazi. 41% say they consider this to be the biggest political scandal in American history to only 43% who disagree with that sentiment."
"One interesting thing about the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history is that 39% of them don't actually know where it is. 10% think it's in Egypt, 9% in Iran, 6% in Cuba, 5% in Syria, 4% in Iraq, and 1% each in North Korea and Liberia with 4% not willing to venture a guess."

Right-Wing Media Push New Benghazi Myths Ahead Of Hearings
Right-wing media are using a congressional hearing to push new myths about the Obama administration's response to the September 11, 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, these myths are discredited by previous congressional reports and testimony, which show that the politicized nature of the hearings come from right-wing media and Congressional Republicans, that the military could not have rescued personnel from the second attack, that the administration was in constant communication at all levels during the attacks, and that the intelligence community believed there was a link to an anti-Islam video at the time of the attacks
Lawyers Representing The "Whistleblowers" In Hearings Are Long-Time GOP Activists With History Of Pushing Discredited Claims. The lawyers claiming to represent some of the witnesses at the Benghazi hearing, Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova, are long-time Republicans known for pushing false claims in the media and for having conflicts of interest in their professional work. They have both served as advisors to Republican candidates and donated thousands of dollars to GOP candidates and causes, and have been criticized for a conflict of interest for serving in a dual role in separate Justice Department investigations and for dropping "the air of impartiality, non-partisanship, and professionalism required" by their roles as leaders of a congressional investigation.[Media Matters, 4/30/13; 5/6/13]
I also believe Members of Congress have an obligation to actually investigate claims before coming to conclusions and making public accusations. Unfortunately, House Republicans have taken the opposite approach. They issued a partisan report with reckless and false accusations against the former Secretary of State, they have completely concealed Mr. Thompson from Democratic Committee Members, and they have failed to make even basic inquiries to the Intelligence Community, the Defense Department, or the State Department to vet specific allegations. Instead, they have leaked snippets of interview transcripts to national media outlets in a selective and distorted manner to drum up publicity for their hearing. This is investigation by press release and does a disservice to our common goal of ensuring that our diplomatic corps serving overseas has the best protection possible to do its critical work.[House Oversight Committee, 5/6/13]

Fox Military Analyst Keane: CIA Base Was Evacuated Before Special Operations Force Could Reach Them. On Fox & Friends, Fox News military analyst retired Gen. Jack Keane responded to guest host Eric Bolling's claim that the Obama administration "did not call on the only response team that may have been able to intervene during the attack" by pointing out that "the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed":
KEANE: Here's what did happen. The national security apparatus, at the request of General Hamm, who's the commander of AFRICOM -- and he's had responsibility from a security aspect to respond to this crisis -- our national mission response force, our most classified force on the highest state of readiness, was alerted and moved from the United States to Sigonella [Naval Air Station in Italy], and they bring with them their own aircraft, their own helicopters and C-17s. Another classified special operations force was moved out of Central Europe to Sigonella as well. The fact of the matter was the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed.[Fox News, Fox & Friends, 11/2/12 via Media Matters]

MYTH: Clinton Never Spoke To Obama On Night Of The Attacks
Ingraham: "We Know That The Secretary Of State Had Not A Single Conversation With The Commander In Chief." During an interview with Republican Congressman Peter King on her radio show, Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham claimed "[w]e know that the Secretary of State had not a single conversation with the Commander in Chief. Not one during this attack":
INGRAHAM: We know that the Secretary of State had not a single conversation with the Commander in Chief. Not one during this attack. Not one conversation? That just seems bizarre to me. I mean that's just one point, but that's a pretty darn good question. Why?
KING: Absolutely, it's an excellent question, and to me it's one that, it's unfortunate that it even has to be asked. I mean you'd think they would have been on the phone continually.
INGRAHAM: My God.[Courtside Entertainment Group, The Laura Ingraham Show, 5/7/13]

FACT: Croatian Force Could Not Have Arrived Until After The Attack Was Over
Accountability Review Board: "There Simply Was Not Enough Time" For "Military Assets To Have Made A Difference." The Accountability Review Board, an independent group tasked with investigating the attacks, found that the "interagency response was timely and appropriate" but that there was not enough time for "armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference":
The interagency response was timely and appropriate, but there simply was not enough time given the speed of the attacks for armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference. Senior-level interagency discussions were underway soon after Washington received initial word of the attacks and continued through the night. The Board found no evidence of any undue delays in decision making or denial of support from Washington or from the military combatant commanders. Quite the contrary: the safe evacuation of all U.S. government personnel from Benghazi twelve hours after the initial attack and subsequently to Ramstein Air Force Base was the result of exceptional U.S. government coordination and military response and helped save the lives of two severely wounded Americans.[Accountability Review Board, accessed 5/7/13]

MYTH: CIA Never Linked Benghazi Attack To Anti-Islam Video
Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes: "There Is No Mention Of Any 'Video' In Any Of The Many Drafts" Of CIA Talking Points. In a post on the Weekly Standard, Stephen Hayes claimed that the CIA talking points about the Benghazi attack made no reference to an anti-Islam YouTube video which was mentioned as a possible cause for the attacks by members of the Obama administration:
More troubling was the YouTube video.[Ambassador Susan] Rice would spend much time on the Sunday talk shows pointing to this video as the trigger of the chaos in Benghazi. "What sparked the violence was a very hateful video on the Internet. It was a reaction to a video that had nothing to do with the United States." There is no mention of any "video" in any of the many drafts of the
talking points.[The Weekly Standard, 5/13/13]
#52263 Aug 27, 2013
Fox's Chris Wallace: Reaction To The Anti-Islam Video "Had Never Been In Any Of The Talking Points." On the May 5 edition of Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace cited Hayes' Weekly Standard article to claim "U.N. Ambassador Rice came on this show and four other Sunday shows, never mentioned the al Qaeda extremists, which had been scrubbed from the -- from the talking points, but did mention a reaction to the anti-Islam video which had never been in any of the talking points." [Fox Broadcasting Co., Fox News Sunday, 5/5/13 via Media Matters]
FACT: Intelligence Community Believed Link Existed At The Time
CIA Talking Points Linked Attack To Protests In Cairo. The first bullet point from what The Weekly Standard described as "Version 1" of the CIA talking points says that "based on currently available information," the attacks were "spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo." The final version of the document made the same link:
The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. diplomatic post and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.[The Weekly Standard, 5/13/13 via Media Matters]
And now back to Fox News with the most trustworthy,up to the minute, non bias news stories from around the globe........LMAO!

more right wing garbage.
"Problem is, the chart is full of errors. I traced it back to the man who made it, a newspaper publisher in Mississippi, and found that the math, methodology, and logic he used to generate the chart, as well as an op-ed he wrote to accompany it, are wholly unsound"
"- It starts with Emmerich overestimating the taxes that the $60,000-a-year family would pay. He was off by over $5k.(His calculation would be based on a taxable income of $60k, meaning a gross income considerably higher.)
#- He inaccurately suggests that the $14,500 household would get Medicaid.(They wouldn't -- in Mississippi, they're living high on the hog and don't qualify for Medicaid.)
#- He guestimated that the premiums on a medical policy for the $60k family would be $16,500 a year and then assigned that dollar amount to the family's Medicaid "benefit" (even though they're ineligible for Medicaid); Singal did a quick search and found a reasonable policy for under $500 a month, or about $6000.(Note that the poorer family would pay that same amount for health insurance --$6,000 a year -- since they don't qualify for Medicaid, although the kids might be about to get CHIP with the parent's insurance costs lower; under our current system, however, that parent and sole breadwinner would likely go without insurance, thus placing the family in more jeopardy for income lost due to illness.)
#In case you're counting, we're at about $15k that Emmerich has misapplied on his chart... and that's the easy stuff,
#52267 Aug 27, 2013
Wow another distorted fact and another blame it on President Obama and it's his fault hateful rhetoric, coming from this bottom of my shoe gum spittle N. Finley no less, and his right wing-nut mentality. He is all for giving out tax breaks and less and less regulations for multi-billion dollar corporations. Whom by the way stash their record breaking profits in overseas banking heavens. But is quick to bash and belittle the poor and less fortunate for receiving help. And then act as if this administration is the fault for all of the ills and woes of this country. To include hurricane Katrina and I bet that some these right wing nut jobs blame President Obama for the fall of the Roman empire... All they do is spew hate, lies and twisted facts. It's to the point where the GOP's double standard is now only exposing how full of crap they truly are and that they are now only hurting themselves and their brand.

even more right wing garbage.
written in 1995 before welfare reform.
it also compares apples to oranges.
"It is, of course, possible to overgeneralize from the above statistics. Not every welfare recipient fits the profile, and many who do fit it do not receive all the benefits listed."
so they are comparing extremes with averages.
#52281 Aug 28, 2013
""Direct payment subsidies are provided without regard to the economic need of the recipients or the financial condition of the farm economy."
"Stiglich said it's hypocritical for a fellow Republican to receive federal farm aid, especially because LaMalfa has billed himself as a leader in the fight against expensive government entitlement programs.
"When it meets his personal interest, it's not a big entitlement," Stiglich said.
Gregory Cheadle, a Happy Valley Republican, agreed.
"You can't condemn welfare recipients on one end then get welfare on the other end," Cheadle said. " I mean 5 million bucks? Come on."
