POLAR BEARS

and NO discussion on the mess Obama has created in the Middle East!

SHHHHHH! Don't tell anyone, keep the discussion down on the MURDER OF OUR AMBASSADOR in LIbya and 3 other AMERICANS!

SHHHHHHHHHHHH! Not a word, more!

(can you imagine if Bush was President and an ambassador was ASSASSINATED along with 3 other Americans in the Middle East??????????

The media would be writing about it, talking about it everyday and every hour.

NO WONDER 60% of the people do NOT TRUST the media...the largest groups...republicans and INDEPENDENTS! They'll show up in NOvember!

Don't believe the Obama media hype.

You do realize that the NY Times had not 1 story on Libya the other day, not 1 story in their paper!

NO balance, just slanted and biased

GO ROMNEY!

Americans are fed up!

Exactly. The liberal media is so biased it's pathetic and sickening. The murder of the Libyan ambassador at the hands of rabid, frothing-at-the-mouth, barbaric muslims should have been front page news for at least several days. You're right, if Bush was in office when that happened, there would have been a media feeding frenzy on an epic scale and calls for intense, wide-sweeping investigations into the matter. That's why some of the polls released by the same liberal media that has Obama six points up in the polls is total bullsh*t. Everyone I have talked to has said that America will not be fooled again and will be voting GOP. Where I work, I have even heard quite a few blacks say that they are fed up with Obama's dog and pony show. The irresponsible, lying, corrupt liberal media would have you believe that Obama has a groundswell of support, but it's all an illusionary farce. Many of the brainwashed sheep that voted for Obama in 2008 will be voting GOP this time to save the country. Better late than never, I suppose.

Possibly, but then so is $5.

$10K is just the figure the government pulled out of its nether region to be suspicious. The $15K I deposited when I sold my Kuboto tractor raised all sorts of flags.

I live in a conservative part of the country.... Concealed Carry, Castle laws that makes most states seem liberal. Here, a No Trespassing sign is all that is needed as a defense for shooting an intruder.

We also have one of the stiffest anti-illegal set of laws in the country. Obama be suing us over that. Our state government does what his administration won't.....

While individual rights are highly valued here, criminals aren't cut any slack, not even if they are politicians.

lie
about everything and blame Bush"??? Lost your
soul and decency.....just like addicts do, will

Its all about priorities, while the dems are worried about Romney's taxes, Americans were killed in Libya and the middle east is ablaze.
Obama stays campaigning while the nation runs in "cruise control".

There is no leadership from Obama whatsoever, that is his biggest failure as president.

Biggest failure is actually, many like you having memory problems recalling, just how much trouble we were really in during 2008.....

Romney and his wife gave $4 million to charities, much of it to the Mormon Church, but deducted only $2.25 million. Had they deducted all of their donations to charity, their tax rate would have been 10.55%, which would have caused Romney political headaches, so he decided to forgo part of his donations. However, win or lose, after the election he is free to file an amended return claiming the full deduction, in which case IRS will cut him a check.

Romney has previously defended his low tax rate which, at 14.1% is significantly less than many middle class families pay by saying he is simply being pragmatic in meeting his legal requirements:

"I dont pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I dont think Id be qualified to become president. Id think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires." Mitt Romney

If Romney had taken all of the deductions available to him under the tax code, he would have paid closer to a 9 percent tax rate in 2011. In attempting to match up his tax rate with his prior statement, Romney is paying more in taxes and by his very own standard disqualifying himself from the presidency.

Interesting too. Obama has increased his income over 10 fold since becoming president. Not bad for an ACORN advisor. Another term and he'll easily surpass Romney for income.

Romney's money is in investments, if they lose money the government won't pay him back, just let him deduct losses. If you lose your job the government will help you get your wages. The lower rate for investments is because we need people to invest else the economy can't grow.

I'm satisfied with the way Romney pays taxes, he's just the man we need in Washington. He knows how to make and keep a budget.

The choice is clear, Obama and more wasteful government spending, intrusive regulations and higher taxes. That's why I support Romney.
