So your not rich...THEN WHY DO YOU SUPPORT THE RICH WHO HAVE ALMOST DESTROYED THIS NATION BY THERE GREED??????
Why cant you see what they are doing selling off our nation to commie china.
What I have supported here Mr. Huh, is free enterprise.
You are confused as to what the difference is apparently.
Oh there's some selling off going on, but you have misidentified the cause, and blamed it on our businesses.

Yeah.
I am wondering though why you help them collapse it.
Oh yeah, now I remember. You swallow any damn thing that the feds tell you and blame the rich, or big business, or your neighbors, or the blacks, or the Mexicans ... just like they want you to.
Did you forget the part of the Rome lesson that teaches when the citizens are at each other's throats, they do not pay attention to what is going on in parliment?
Yet here you are blaming blacks and the poor and workers for what the rich have done...I am watching what is going on and I see the rich taking over this nation and one day it wont be the USA but just one big company...THEN YOU FAR RIGHTERS WILL BE HAPPY.

Jesus did throw the bankers out of the temple and yes the bible says GREED IS EVIL....Greed you know being rich.
Interesting.
You change your premise and target.
Greed and rich are two separate words with two separate meanings.

Uuuuuuummmmmm nooooooo, Jesus drove the merchants from the Temple. The Temple is a place of worship, not a place for commerce.
Simple. How did you get so confused?

You say that the Bible said that being rich was bad.
Now you get closer to the real truth and say that greed is bad and the Bible says so.

He did NOT say that money is the root of all evil Mr. Huh.
He said that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

That's an important difference. A very important difference.

Your the one crying because you pay maybe at most 30% total income in taxes and live in greatest nation on earth....Your acting like a victim. TAXES ARE LOWER TODAY THEN SINCE BEFORE WW2....
I make my wife and I around 65k a year. We pay less taxes today on 65k then we did on 30K back in the 1980,s. With write offs many big companies pay ZERO taxes...STOP CRYING. AND GET TO CREATEING JOBS.
Geez I agree with my CPA its better to have a D-9 Cat Dozer and a couple John Deere tractors for hobby craft than pay 30% taxes! 30% Taxes sounds creepy if not downright highway robbery. Sounds like you need a new CPA ASAP! Better off you guys should donate more to the NBPP or the NAACP. You will rest better knowing it went to good folks! LOL! Really! Hahaha!

Remember what?...how you truthers accused George Bush of orchestrating the 9-11 attacks on America just as an excuse to go to war?
Go to the devil,.. you'll get more support from him than from us.
And you can go to bushisms. You need a little humor in your life. Maybe after reading some of his gaffs you might realize how pathetic you and your boy bush are with a smile.

The hate that is eating away at you will only worsen with time if not stoped.

Thankfully your kind is a dying thing of the past with the world becoming civilized, well except some in the terroistic middle east countries.

Different strokes for different folks. A few thousand acres of swampland in the hand is better than a corporate office in the Bronx or some other minority infested shithole! hahaha.

All the rat wingers who think Trayvon laid in wait for Zimmerman are delusional. How would Trayvon know the thug would get out of his vehicle and hunt him down? He thought he had gotten rid of the pedophile.

He had no way of knowing Zimmerman was pissed at Shellie and was going to bag him a black boy that night.
The pedophile Martin was gotten rid of. The police still have his phone full of child porn.

He's got a few more chapters to write before his soap opera, country-singing sad song of a life comes to a screeching halt.

Grab a snickers bar. It's gonna be a while.
He will be paying his own way soon enough when he collect on the civil suits. Martin would have cost tax payers severely. I doubt he would have lived long though. The live style he was living doesn't usually last long.

Still stuck on the juror that had words put in her mouth during the interview. Did you also hear her say that Zimmerman broke no laws and the case should have never went to trial? Did you here that part of her interview? Please let's here your response.

<quoted text>I'm not talking about the verdict itself. I'm talking about information that might have changed some minds.

I believe that on that fateful night, George Zimmerman was out to "get" someone. This frustrated wannabe cop was at the end of his psychological rope, and was determined to be noticed. I believe that certain facts about his history that were not admitted into evidence, could have made a difference.

Trayvon Martin may also have had a less than perfect past. But the difference is that on the night of the incident, Martin was doing nothing illegal.

It's interesting to look at Zimmerman's more recent history. Besides being stopped twice for speeding, it was reported by his estranged wife that Zimmerman was in his car, with his hand on his gun, urging her to "step closer". She also reported that Zimmerman punched her dad in the nose, and then destroyed her iPhone.

Both Mrs. Zimmerman and her father refused to press charges, perhaps because they feared retribution, or for some other reason.
There is no apparent reason why Mrs. Zimmerman would make up a story like this. This latest incident depicts an unstable man, with out-of-control anger issues.

Admittedly, this recent skirmish with Zimmerman proves nothing in terms of the Trayvon Martin incident. But in retrospect, it looks like George Zimmerman may have had motives beyond that of wanting to be a neighborhood hero.
Funny how this is the same lady all the racist Martin supporters said should never be believed. LOL.
