Palin is a sex symbol to most of these nitwits. This one and Nobraina raved about her for years, only quieting down when she amply proved what a moron she is.

She'll never run for office again. It would cut into her making money by being Sarah Palin.

Her blow up dolls with 'action mouth' are a big hit among the NRA set.

Nobraina has 3.

So the nitwits don't talk about Repugnant corrupt politicians??

McDonnell was a rising star, a pretty boy Governor.

Now he's going to prison.

So much for integrity from either party.

Why isn't Holder focusing on getting that former Marine out of that Mexican prison after taking a wrong turn than a troubled teen in a local police incident that's already being investigated?
What do you want the State Department to do? Call up the judge and order Tahmooressi's release?By law, all the State Department can do is "ensure that U.S. citizens receive equitable treatment in accordance with the Mexican criminal justice system and are not discriminated against because of their nationality." They cannot provide legal counsel or interfere in the due process of law.

Tahmooressi got himself in this predicament innocently enough I suppose but he will just have to wait for the case to run its course through the judicial system just as a citizen of Mexico would have to do in the United States.

Or shut the fk up.
Well, since I won't "shut the fk up"...

Harry Reid was so offended by Romney's "exotic tax-avoidance schemes available only to the preposterously wealthy,” he didn't need to look any further than his own party.

Start with Dianne Feinstein, the seventh wealthiest senator with a net worth between $44 million and $94 million. Like Romney, she keeps a portion of it in offshore accounts in St. Peter Port, Guernsey, a tax haven which is a small island in the English Channel for helping the wealthy dodge taxes. She also has money in a fund located in the Channel Islands. She has more money in Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean off Madagascar that is also a tax haven.

Reid didn't mention Richard Blumenthal either. Like Feinstein, he has sheltered funds from taxes in the past —$15,000 to $50,000 in a hedge fund held by his wife in the Cayman Islands. His most recent disclosure forms say he made $50,000 to $100,000 from the fund in capital gains, dividends, and interest.

Reid also overlooked Lautenberg, the fifth wealthiest senator whose net worth is six times the Senate’s average. His most recent forms show that his wife’s family has between $500,000 and $1 million in Port Louis, Mauritius. The money is in a real-estate private-equity fund that does its actual investing in India.

Then there’s John Kerry, the richest person in the Senate considered wealthy because of the fortune of his wife. The senator’s 2010 disclosure forms show that they had at least $2 million in a fund in Guernsey at filing time.

PolitiFact's ruling on Reid's false claims about Romney: "Romney’s account was entirely legal and he paid taxes on the earnings...many Americans have foreign investments through 401(k)s and pension funds."

You collect Social Security. What do you mean by reducing your economic burden??
You want even more handouts??
You're a burden on the rest of us.
You apparently don't know how Social Security works. Or which party insisted the government knew best and took our money to provide for the retirements of the generation ahead of us.

My generation worked to pay for the generation ahead of ours to retire.

Now it's your generation's turn to pay for mine.

It was the Democrats' idea. Stop blaming me.

The Republicans seem to have an overload of Governors in trouble with the law, Perry, Christie, McDonald, Walker, Deal from Georgia,Scott Florida. And a number of others that could very well lose their jobs come November. I have a good feeling about this upcoming election. There will be Mass suicides from the right..YAHOO.

The discussion was about the wealthy getting wealthier, a fact. The point of contention is the distribution of this wealth. It has absolutely nothing to do with jobs going overseas. That's just smoke your wealthy handlers have blown up your ass.
many people, Galt included, have become a lot wealthier because Obama has pumped up the stock market by Fed action, regardless of the state of the economy....

Obama talks about income inequality while promoting actions that increase wealth inequality....

Nope. The attorney made her statement in a 45-minute hearing before a St. Louis County family court judge. Family Court doesn't not provide copies of their transcripts.
This is about as close as we are going to get:(The "If a juvenile had been charged as an adult" was new to me).
"Cynthia Harcourt, a lawyer for St. Louis County Juvenile Officer Kip Seely, noted that some juvenile records and proceedings are open to the public: those that concern crimes that would be Class A or B felonies IF a juvenile had been charged as an adult. But there were none for Brown.
After the hearing, the Post-Dispatch sought out Harcourt to clarify her statement. She told the Post-Dispatch that Brown was not facing any Class A or B charges when he died, either."
Joseph Martineau of Lewis Rice & Fingersh, attorney for the Post-Dispatch, acknowledged to Siwak that some juvenile court records are confidential under Missouri law.
But he argued that the primary reason to keep them confidential — to protect a child from entering adulthood with the stigma of a criminal record — expired with Brown’s death. He said Siwak ( St. Louis County Family Court Judge Ellen Levy Siwak) had the discretion to open files, and said there was heavy public interest in the details of Brown’s life."
Guess we will just have to wait for the judge's decision.
http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-...
if the attorney for the county truly believed that the juvenile records were confidential, then she should have said nothing, not even acknowledged that there was any record.....

instead, she pulled a Lois Lerner, denying any guilt and then pleading the 5th.....

besides, "What difference does it make?"......

go ahead and crucify the cop.....
