You murderers just can’t stand it when somebody tells you the truth about yourself. You surround yourselves with other idiots and lie to each other so much you’ll believe anything.
Yes, I’m firing back, with words, against truly evil conservatives who are puppets for traitors and the Angel of Death.
My words are no match for your savagery, but I believe there are people who now see you for what you are. No, I won’t sweetly call you butchers because I won’t compromise with evil.
Sad that I have to keep explaining the difference between good and evil to conservatives, but I’m doing it for those who have functioning brains.

Government assistance expands
By Tami Luhby @CNNMoney February 7, 2012:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- More than one in three Americans lived in households that received Medicaid, food stamps or other means-based government assistance in mid-2010, according to a new report.

And when Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits are included, nearly half of the nation lived in a household that received a government check, according to the analysis of third-quarter 2010 Census data done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, a libertarian-leaning think tank. That's more than 148 million Americans.

No, I'm not going to make a list for you just because you're a village idiot, especially when I know that you‘re going to come up with some equally stupid comment/accusation/lies.

Thanks for proving me right. Are you really this stupid?
‘Everyone here’- my god, you make a fool of yourself again.

You probably never question why America's village idiots vote conservative. Only idiots would obey the Elite which is trying to destroy them.
Intelligent people ask WHY, and because they're not blinded by ignorance, they SEE what the traitors are really up to.

You have no intelligent explanation for your treason and no excuse for your stupidity because laziness is no excuse.
Oh, I see now, it's the "intelligent people" who fail to question how the US can prosper using socialism when no other country has prospered using it. It's those "intelligent people" that vote more and more socialist policies into practice and into law. Its the "intelligent people" that cant figure out, despite numerous examples throughout history, the second amendment is the only thing standing between Freedom and living under dictator rule. It's the "intelligent people" that haven't figured out liberal government programs have one source of funding, the working taxpayer. Yet knowing the number of retirees is about to snowball, the number of moochers getting their "free" handouts is growing, the number of working taxpayers is decreasing, the country has 11 million illegals and counting that could end up granted amnesty and sucking up more government assistance, those "intelligent people" can't see that system is doomed to fail. How can the government fund more people on assistance, while collecting from fewer taxpayers, without increasing taxes? How can a growing number of retirees collect from social security, with fewer people working to pay into social security, without social security going bankrupt? You're so "intelligent", answer those few questions.

I would guess that intelligent people would reelect a President who's unemployment has been steadily bad, scandal after scandal such as Benghazi, Fast and Furious and Solyndra, has spent more money than all Presidents combined before him. That's what intelligent people do, reelect failures. LOL!

I've never seen or heard of a single liberal anywhere in the world doing and saying that, so again you don't know the difference between fantasy and reality.
I do know that conservatives give when there's a tax write-off.

So, what you're bytching about is liberals not giving, AND that liberals want the government to give more to help people.
You're also saying that conservatives give more, AND that you all are right when you parrot your poison about how people should not be helped.

Do you even KNOW how to THINK for yourself?

I guess you never heard of a woman named Oprah. When she gave to charity, she used her so-called generosity to make themes for her show which of course got ratings and made her money right back. She would have shows about her visiting her school in Africa that she had built or have shows on who she gave cars to. You're not kidding anybody.

Tax write offs are not all that much. They bring down your tax rate a little, but not like most people think. Just ask DumBama. He paid a lower tax rate than his secretary with his write-offs.

You don't understand because we on the right have a different philosophy of money than you on the left.

We believe that the money we create (through whatever means) is rightfully ours. What's wrong with that? On the other hand, lefties believe that all money earned by people belongs to government, and they give you an allowance of sorts, and it's their generosity that allowed you to keep some of your money.

How do the "elite" make fools of anyone? They take advantage of the education available to them? They form huge businesses which provide thousands of jobs? They take advantage of tax incentives to provide more or higher paying jobs? They put up with you and the rest of "the 99%ers" being jealous of their success?

Wherever you got your talking points from is anyone's guess but teabaggers just seem to repeat themselves anyway.

He is a visiting fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation and the American Civil Rights Union.

He is a columnist for the New York Sun, a contributing editor and columnist for the conservative news and opinion site Townhall.com , and a public affairs commentator for the Salem Radio Network.

No, we don't believe the claptrap you or another nutjob teabagger spout.

"We believe that the money we create (through whatever means) is rightfully ours. What's wrong with that? On the other hand, lefties believe that all money earned by people belongs to government, and they give you an allowance of sorts, and it's their generosity that allowed you to keep some of your money".

It is but you also have to support the structure that allows you that opportunity,which just so happens to be the lawmakers, NOT the corporate barons that teabaggers wholeheartedly support.

These scumbags not only cut your "allowance", they bleed your salary so dry,you don't even get one.

Because they found a cheaper resource..........overseas, and as a parting gift, they "let" you train your replacement.

Darn, they "deserve" another tax cut/rebate/refund.

Meanwhile you look for your "allowance" elsewhere.

They make fools out of all teabaggers, not that they had that far to go anyway.

They take advantage of the government and "tax incentives" which they now control to take even more taxpayer money.

NOT "jealous", pissed off, that they have such control over the government that is "supposed" to be "by" the people,"of" the people and "for" the people.

Do athletes, actors or musicians force you to buy a ticket?

But teabaggers insist you buy a "ticket" though tax incentives, on the promise of a job, the very same corporations that eliminated your job.

So you can go to work for them at 1/3 of the salary you once made.

Teabaggers think that corporations will take care of them, just as long as you give them enough of your money and enough rope to hang yourself with.

I guess you don't realize that the people responsible for sending jobs overseas is not the government, not the CEO's, not the Republicans, not the corporations, but YOU, the consumer.

It's the American consumer that demands the lowest prices and they don't care where the product is made or who it's made by. It's the reason Wal-Mart is number one in the USA.

Did you take a look at your IRA portfolio lately? Are your investments in American companies using American workers only with a return of about 1.5%, or are you invested in companies that are returning you 3-6%, but using foreign labor? If you are invested in American companies, did you take a look at what those companies are paying for non-skilled labor?

Government doesn't provide opportunities--you provide your own. All government can do is speed up or impede the process.

A word of advice, when you start your reply with an insult, it's foreshadowing of the lack of substance in the rest of your post. Why is it that liberals think insults win debates? Could it be that they have no facts to stand on?
Oh, the "elite" control the government? You mean like Feinstein? Pelosi? The rest of the fat cat liberals in congress? You act like Republicans are the wealthiest people on planet earth. Take a close look at the finances of your saviors!
Not jealous? Pissed off? At the "elite" that has so much control over the government, Obama was re-elected? Lmao! Do you believe your own tripe? Or do you just hope others are stupid enough to believe it?
No they don't force me to buy a ticket. I don't buy a ticket.
Those corporations didn't eliminate jobs! They moved them somewhere that has cheaper labor, when Democrats want to raise the minimum wage. They moved them somewhere that says their people are just happy to have a damn job, when America forces them to deal with Democrat run unions. They moved them somewhere they could still make a profit because the average consumer wants cheap over quality. I refuse to buy products made in China! I'm a man wearing a shoe named SAS (San Antonio Shoes) because its made in the USA. They are $150 for a pair of tennis shoes. What do you wear? Look at the label. You contributed to this! Not me!
I don't go to work for them at all. I own my business. I went to school for 21 years to do it. I make about the national average income.
You talk about the corporations the way you should be talking about the unions.

Most all of that happened after Reaganomics was implemented.

Goods and services were made in the U.S., easily available, affordable and durable.

Reaganomics encouraged "free" makets, "free" trade, deregulation and encouraged tax "incentives" for outsourcing jobs overseas.

Teabaggers always claim that companies can't profit by making or providing services here but seem to claw their way right back into the American consumers pockets, now they're "profitable".

Name ONE company that went out of business because of taxes?

Excluding cheating, penalties or just not paying them.

"Are your investments in American companies using American workers only with a return of about 1.5%".

Yes I did, I owned to "small" businesses at two different times.

I earned a more than 1.5%, until I didn't

I have no "investments" left.

I work for a living now and am making the same hourly rate as I was 25 years ago.

A lot less stressful but the money doesn't go half as far.

No companies went out of business because of taxes. This is because they instead moved their operations overseas to escape them. This along with unions, environmental regulations and various other costs such as unemployment insurance and workman's compensation.

Sure affordable things were made here years ago. This is because years ago, workers were in a rat race to make the most money. But as time went on, nobody got ahead. We just priced ourselves out of the world market. If I insist I make two dollars per hour more for my labor, then you pay the cost. In order to recoup your loss, you insist that you make two-fifty an hour more, and then I have to pay that cost in the products or services your company provides. It was a a train headed for dirt road all along.

Today we have way more things to spend our money on than let's say 30 years ago. Thirty years ago, you needed furniture, a phone and a television. That's it. Today we spend our money on internet services, cable or satellite television, satellite radio, DVD players, CD players, cell phones, big screen televisions, video games, Net Flix or pay-per-view. Of course we have less in our pockets. As for our pay, healthcare insurance sucks that out before it hits our pockets.

You can't blame Reagan or Bush or any trade agreements. When we Americans decide we will only buy American made products, that's when we will see any kind of change in this country.
