Republicans keep crying about spending then dumped this $5 trillion tax cut. Lost revenue. How will they compensate for that loss? Crickets is all we hear.
They even go against their own ideologies so desperate they be to avoid the issues. Observe they want bigger government!
Lets just see one example of where the republicans are indicating they want to go.{No Surprise Here} Mittens wants to increase “spending” to the Pentagon by $ 2 Trillion. HMMM They are overly budgeted as it is! Why more.
OUTSOURCING! Yes sir reee bub. Thunder on the Horizon. Soon we will be able to outsource our children to foreign soils. Once again and again and again. it’s the republican way. Increasing welfare to the military complex to harbor the children soldiers. Larger government!
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state... Romney will raise Pentagon budget by $2 Trillion! True. Now with $5 trillion in lost revenue how is this going to be financed? We are looking at $7 Trillion and Mittens isn’t yet in the White House and already he has us bankrupt! His solution. Outsource the kids while on the dole of the welfare military? Not the sharpest knife the draw… Might as well sign up to go kill some people somewhere. There is nothing left on our Main Street USA. Just a bunch of cronies racing up and down our empty streets. How much will it cost you? Nothing..

Regulations, Regulation. Is What Strikes fear in the corrupt and criminal.
Republicans see us on the Brink as democrat see opportunity.
Could this explain why, there is such a diverse view of the same equation? Republicans see a dwindling ability to extract social welfare payments from the bottom of the Pyramid scheme’s they have designed. Democrats’ see opportunity for our society by cutting welfare payments to the elitist and returning the Pyramid back to its proper position.
An example is the old poison pill scam. Consider back in 2003 republicans introduced , what many refer to as the “Poison Pill” of Health Care.
Government extended much needed Medicare drug benefits. A little provision was added to its extension. Provision PROHIBITS government from bargaining for prices on drugs!$50 Billion per year windfall to the pharmaceuticals. Imagine cost to premiums to cover that little bit added expenses. Where will they get it. Perhaps by reducing quality of Health Care. Premium increases, lowering the mortality rate and so on.
Ahhh the republican way…. Who can complain? Its what ya’ll voted for, wasn’t it.
Lets see 9 X 50 =$450 Billion.. Hmmm Kinda of a leak there…
Another welfare overreaching its solution. Oil, Coal, and some Agriculture required assistance at one time, to increase their productivity to markets, with their products. Once established, their success ,welfare is no longer required. Today we have before us welfare abuse an wide and broad base by the elitist. One more before we end this. Observe 2010 top ten oil companies paid zero taxes. Received tax returns into the $Multimillions each. Demand further assistance of $ Multibillions for their welfare. Such is their strengths at present, that they can “SHUTDOWN” the USA should we choose to deny their welfare!
These are but the tip, of the reverse pyramid schemes, of the republican scenarios.

They would rather not have Independents Vote in a Primary. They have so very little to vote for. I will go any way.
When you choose your party affiliation to be Independent, which is No Pary Affliliation, you do NOT get to vote in the primary, it is only for registerd Republicans in the Rep. Primary or The Democrats Party get to vote in the Democratic Primary. I feel they should get to choose who they want to vote for, meaning one or the other. Anyone else feel this way?

Hey Brandon, Mr. Past, Present, Future. Be careful what you say about others, was that an in-law of yours that recently lost a job for stealing. And by the way I am not a Gator Hater, in fact I could care less about who wins any football game anywhere anytime. So put that in your well educated pipe, and blow smoke up someone else's ass.

Another Lie that Obama told the American people, and the Liberal/socialists ate it up.
WARNNG to Seniors. Death panel for those over 70, thanks to Obamacare:

Mark Levin (WABC radio) receives a telephone call from a NeuroSurgeon, that he was called in to a meeting by the HHS, that if they were called in on an emergency call, and the patient was over 70 years old, they have to wait until the HHS United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)indicates what treatment they can receive.....I guess TV Jerk wasn't called in on that meeting.....lol. All joking aside this is the death panel that we have been warning you Seniors about. Listen to this and make your own mind up, and just maybe it will tell you whom to vote for, keeping in mind yourself and maybe your over 70 year old parents and grand-parents.(The radio station verified the caller was a bon-a-fide NeuroSurgeon)

The Saga Of The Victims of The Green isle Boys Ranch Rapes
All the laws in the world in the hands of the lawless does not protect our children from those who would abuse them under the color of the law and those who will conspire to cover up those crimes of their friends and fellow conspirators. To save the children from this abuse the people must be willing to open their eyes and stop lying to themselves and making excuses for the questionable actions of those in our presence.

To make laws and only apply them to some people and not all the people does not bring justice to any of the people. To use loopholes in the laws to protect their well connected friends does not make the people feel comfortable that we really have a justice system at all. This is why honest people do not respect the law enforcement and judiciary. The people must demand that those who abuse our children and/ or anyone in our society will pay the prescribed price for that abuse. No more special treatment for friends! Failure to punish for their heinous crimes only leads to a life of more and more abuse and crimes by these aggressors. If not why is it every time a child goes missing the first thing they do is run a search for all the sexual offenders/ predators in the area? This is why the system demands registration of these sex abusers.

On October 1st the Florida Legislature put into place a new stricter law designed to protect children. &#8195;Mandatory reports of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect; mandatory reports of death; central abuse hotline.—Florida lawmakers claim F S 39.201 is their answer to the call of the Florida public to pass laws that will protect our children from pedophiles and others who prey on them So now this law comes into place which requires everyone with knowledge or suspicion that a child might be in danger must immediately report same to a central abuse hotline.. Penalties for failure to do so are in place. However this law is inadequate because even though it requires all reporting through a central abuse hotline many of those reports will continue to be turned over the local authorities who have a history of abuse of the system and favoritism for their friends coupled with no mercy for their enemies.

By now most all church organizations and child and animal abuse advocates throughout Florida and much of the United States has heard of the Green Isle Boys Ranch in Clermont, south Lake County.
The planning stages of Green Isle Boys Ranch began in 1987 when Don Brown, Max Jones, Gary Borders (who was a lieutenant in the Osceola County jail at the time) and a few others mostly from Osceola County with ties to the corrections business put their minds together and hatched this idea of a home for wayward boys. Don Brown and the Brown family are the owners of the numerous corporations that control the Bridges of America organizations and prison

ministries that are vendors of the Florida Department of Corrections who continue to collect millions of tax dollars annually for the work release programs and such.
The Ranch opened in 1989 the same year Gary Borders left the Osceola County jail and come to work at the Lake County jail. Almost from the very beginning rumors of boys being abused by other boys and even house parents were heard all over Lake County. No one seemed to know who was in charge of or run the ranch.
In fact so many complaints of child abuse and sexual activity abound from the years of Green a complete review of that history would be hard for the layman to keep up with.
Some remarkable points are in 2000 a nine year old male student at Green isle reported to his parents he had been sexually abused by other students and an employee of the school as well. At the time Don Brown was very involved in the day to day activities of the school and somehow negotiated with the young victim’s parents to return him to Green Isle where he would receive all kinds of special treatment. When he returned he was actually raped again by students and a school employee as well. This crime was reported to the LCSO (#00-086633) and Detective Vaneese Collins was assigned to the case and the entire investigation went no where. Stopped, halted dead in its tracks. The parents of the then nine year old victim form Sumter County hired Attorney Keith Mitnik who filed suit and eventually got a settlement from Green Isle.
An interesting revelation regarding this lawsuit filed by Mr. Mitnik is Lake Circuit Judge William Law was the judge assigned to this lawsuit all the way through to settlement. At the same time Judge Law was hearing this case against Green Isle his wife Julia Law also and attorney was a member of the board of directors at Green Isle Ranch!
During this time on December 11, 2000 in response to the ongoing sexual allegations at Green Isle- Department of Children and Families Investigator Chester Wood also filed a complaint with LCSO alleging Child Neglect at the facility. In LCSO report ( 00-099999) Mr. Wood stated that children at the facility are not being supervised and there is not enough staff on duty.
In his complaint DCF Investigator Chester Wood complained to LCSO that there had been several reports of sexual activity between male juveniles at Green Isle during school hours and at their cabins as well, On December 12th, 2000 the DCF complaint on Green isle was assigned to Detective Vaneese Collins (I-23) Once again even though this complaint was from an investigator with the Florida DCF no action was taken on his complaint and it was eventually “exceptionally closed” on October 26, 2003 by the Captain in charge of LCSO CIB at the time.
June 27, 2008 - Green Isle kids' ranch faces abuse claims

The Lake County Sheriff's Office is investigating allegations of abuse at Green Isle Children's Ranch, a group home and school for troubled boys that has operated in Clermont for more than 20 years. And according to Lake County investigators, the facility has never had any problems. However, that may change. Sheriff's Sgt. John Herrell said investigators received reports that
