OK, I'll take your unwillingness to admit what your party said in 1986 or even defend it as an admission of you knowing what the democrats did was wrong. On taxes for the poor, I thought we were talking about the federal government and federal taxes. I will certainly be more cautious in my assumptions that you understand what we are talking about from now on. Not talking about the umemployed, never was. The non-retirement entitlement society doesn't pay federal income taxes, only sales tax. Yes, you can take advantage of every single tax break the rich take advantage of. All you have to do is set yourself up to make the kind of money they do using the same hard work ethic they used. If you don't want to then that's on you but don't try and push the blame off on someone who had done the work and been successful. We live in America where one can make of themselves whatever they want. On the vacation front, Bushes (both of them) spent $25 million on "vacations" in 8 years.$20million of that was on the cost of using Airforce 1 but we'll count it anyway. Obama on the other hand had spent $57 million on vacations where he didn't work in only 3 years. Maybe it's you who should do the research. If you choose to, the only thing you will find from your liberal sources is that $20 million for Airforce 1 and they will only compare it to Obama's 4 trips to Hawaii costing $4 million each. They convieniently will omit Michelle's trips with and without the girls or the girls trips without the parents. I never mentioned Ireland. Where they vacation is of no concern to me but rather how much those vacations cost us, the hurting tax payers in this terrible economy of Obama's. Just be open minded enough to look at other sources besides ultra-leftwing sources that really make you look bad when you go defending the Obama's. I assumed that you could look at the numbers I gave and tell for yourself that they were minimal. Sorry, I gave you more credit than you deserve. So, I think you must have meant your not angry but rather confused. Wonder what city you live in that expects 60K extra residents? Is that in the next century?
LOL your probably not going to believe this, but then again, I am probably not going to care. I just spent the last 20 min writing this big long paragraph about how wrong you were, but then went to send it and my computer froze; however, at this point what I can say is that yes you are wrong. I do not have to defend my statements as they are politically and literally correct. You can and have every right to believe what you want. I am not trying to change your mind, just stating the facts. You can take those facts with some sense of reason or you can call them bunk, does not matter to me, but what I can tell you is you should be more optimistic on your outlook on life instead of pessimistic about every little thing you THINK is true. Might make your life a little easier and lower your blood pressure. Before I go though I must tell you about Bush's vacations because I cannot omit this. The $20M you said was spent by both Bush's over their duration as president is simply false. What I can tell you is that little Bush's trips to his Texas ranch alone cost the tax payers over $20M, I will let you figure out the rest of the 900 days he spent on vacation and his 7 trips to Africa each costing $60-$100M each. Maybe you should get your facts from actual news sources instead of political image signs found on GOOGLE.

HA!!! NOW you are really not going to believe this!! Even though it is in black and white. That post above where I explained that I thought my message did not get sent, well, right above that is my original message!!! What are the odds of that. Must of just took a little longer to post than normal. Being republican though, or conservative in nature. It may take a little more convincing than the cold hard truth in front of your eyes.

Open minded? That is one thing that you will not find with a liberal.
One common trait that all liberals share is the "Blame Bush" gene. Actually, the "Blame" gene is the dominant gene that controls every liberal so strongly, that it trumps all ability to think rationally and logically.
However, just as dominant as the "Blame" gene is, all liberals ironically share in the absence of the "Accountability/Responsib ility" gene, which is seemingly just as dominant.
Oddly enough, these two traits work together like a fine oiled machine in the mind of a liberal. The strong dominance of both have potential to cause conflict and confusion however, over time, the liberal mind has been able to intertwine and weave these traits so closely together, they have perfected the "Pick and Chose" gene. The traits from this gene have evolved into what we see now in the mind of every liberal...selective memory loss.
Unfortunately for America, the liberal mind has perfected the ability to incorporate these three genes, that they have not only created their own account of jaded history, they also can't process the reality of the present.
Those of us that are left to deal with the contradicting and chaotic mind of the liberal realize what a detriment they are to society...but until the liberal mind can recognize and admit the bondage and turmoil they deal with daily, there is little we can do to help them.
To sum it up...the liberal mind can't remember 1986, because they have spent years blaming others and refusing to take responsibility.
Case in point? Barney the Boob, who tries hard to appear eloquent...but probably needs a refresher course in the correct way to use simplistic grammar such as to, too, and two...their, there, and they're...etc....

However those facts escape Dr. "not sure about that, None the less proceeds with another attempt at redemption in a 5,000 word essay on psycho analysis of a Liberal.
What poor Dr. "not sure about that" does not know that THEIR analysis has been debunked by several studies and have published in several publications, such as Psychologytoday, for example.

You’ve got to be kidding me; the liberals have a “Blame Gene!” You have got to be pulling my leg; the conservatives couldn’t wait for President Obama to take office so they could blame him for the depression they caused, two mismanaged wars and turning booming economy into a plummeting economy while they had the helm the first decade of this land.
The conservatives the tea party ultra kooks have a season pass to “Loony Land” where the ride Sara Palin’s merry-go-round thinking the president was given a magic wand that he can wave and all should be fixed the moment he took office.
The only thing more dominant than their “Blame Gene” is their “Stupid Gene!”
But it is possible I guess the conservatives and tea baggers most definitely have a “Memory Loss” gene and then it would be understandable why they think others are to blame and only they have the answers.
This is jumbled liberal genetics at its very best!
Blame, no accountability/responsibility, with considerable memory loss, only to start over again with blame!
I appreciate this post!! Seriously...perfect timing!!

These East and West coast IP's show every AM simultaneously on this thread. And both posters always comment on the same subject.

Really odd how one Moniker would not claim responsibility for a post, and right behind it is one that does.

Now I ask you, how odd is that, Two different people on each side of the USA thinking about the same thing at the exact same time.........

Lordy Be, what were the chances of that happening?

The really amazing part, you ain't going to believe this, they both call this poster "BARN"

Try again DA. Dan Joseph was simply trying to show how people will sign anything if it is presented in a manner that seems to be for the common good. Dan Joseph wasn't actually fighting to get legislation for killing babies after their born. Much like the guy in California that went around asking people to sign a petition to get rid of the 2nd amendment. He would say things like "This way only the criminals would have guns and law abiding citizens wouldn't be able to defend theirselves", and people would just blindly sign the petition. This whole study was designed to show how blind students are at our liberal indoctrinating institutions known as colleges. Heck, he even introduced himself as "Carlos Danger" (being a Wiener liberal, you should love that). This study is as clear of an example of why liberalsim is so dangerous and how those under the leaders of liberalism are no more than blind sheep that only listen for catch phrases like "common good" and blindly give thier support. I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be associated with a group like that. Or, do you even know your in that group? Let's check. You will still defend liberalism from now on for "the common good". Now let's sit back and see if you are a sheep or not. Some sheep are smart enough to not respond in order to hide their obvious affiliation with the freedom killing liberals.

You have a Conservative with a petition, the same petitioner who had the one to abolish the first amendment at one time also.

I believe it was pro- choice Republicans' who signed Mr. Conservative's petition.

There are pro- choice Republicans, which shoots the Hell out of your theory that anyone who is pro-choice, is a Liberal

It's not the 1700's either but liberals still use slavery as a means to drum up anger and divide America. I guess it depends on what liberals are trying to accomplish as to what they use and what they omit. It has been well documented that Mitt Romney gave away his entire inheritance and made his own money from that point forward. Again, maybe you should do better research before you spout off liberal talking points. You do realize that the Bush's didn't go to Africa on vacation don't you? Did you look at the places they went? Hardly vacation spots. It was on official business for the U.S. Funny how you defended the Obama's for going to the G8 summit then turn around bash the Bush's for doing the same thing in Africa. I'm sorry, but you are getting REALLY out there with your posts. Your adding things that never happened, inflating numbers, even using current dollars to make a point of how much it costs in 2000-something.

"fighting to get legislation for killing babies after their born"

Well no shit Capitan Obvious, Dan Joseph is nothing more than an attention whore parading around under the Conservative banner with bigot stamped on his forehead, political and racial.

That was no damn study, or even close to it. It was meant to do one thing, a pep rally, fire up the base of the low information voter, those much like you who swallowed his bait hook ,line and sinker, just like the DA that posted it on here to begin with.

If you do not think it works to rile you idiots up just look at some right wing web sites like the one below, every right wing Bloger in the country jumped on that including Fox News.

,,,,,,,,,,

One concerned student asked if the procedure would “cause harm to the child.”

“Well the child would not be there anymore,” responded Joseph.“It’s abortion.”

The student then happily signed the petition.

"freedom killing liberals"

You going to tell me that taking away a woman's right to choose is not killing her freedom?

If you ask me, her decisions is between her and her maker, but you folks think that needs to be overridden by the higher powers that be in the Right Wing...

When you get off that short bus kid, you can attempt to explain something to me again.

How damn old are you boy, I get the feeling you were not even born yet when Laura Bush and her twins went on an African Safar on US tax dollars.

Laura Bush was also a frequent flier who often brought her daughters along for the ride.

Her first foreign foray was a ten-day trip to Paris, Budapest and Prague in 2002 with daughter Jenna, who was then 20.

The White House made sure Laura Bush had at least one "official" event in each city, but she and Jenna spent the bulk of their time at each locale shopping and taking in the sights.

During her husband's second term, Laura Bush also made five goodwill trips to Africa to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and malaria. But on an African trip in 2007, Laura Bush took Jenna and her other daughter, Barbara, on a safari.

Laura Bush also made an official trip to Burma in support of the pro-Democracy movement and another to the Middle East to promote breast cancer awareness.

The former First Lady's last official foreign trip was to Panama. She brought daughter Barbara with her.

Do you think remarks like this from a Republican Congressman is not drumming up anger and dividing America"

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) defended his claim that undocumented youths are drug mules with cantaloupe-sized calves on Friday, telling The Laura Ingraham Show that he would not apologize for the remarks. King’s claims have sparked outrage across the political spectrum, leading House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to distance himself from the Iowa Congressman.

One more thing-

"inflating numbers"

First Lady Michelle Obama caught hell last year when she flew off to Spain. Never mind that the Obama entourage paid for their swanky lodgings or that the trip included a goodwill lunch with Spain's King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia.

"well documented that Mitt Romney gave away his entire inheritance "

Hold on partner, well documented, I would no go so far to say "well".

Passing your inheritance on to your children is not the same as not inheriting money at all. And it actually makes me a bit curious: a common estate-tax reduction strategy known as a dynasty trust relies on skipping generations. Did Romney pass on his inheritance to his kids for tax reasons? It's hard to know without seeing his tax returns—and that's another reason why he should release them.
