Mitt Romney and the 47 percent, joined at the hip

There are 28 comments on the The Washington Post story from Sep 26, 2012, titled Mitt Romney and the 47 percent, joined at the hip. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

We've been hearing endless yammering about two seemingly unrelated things: that 47 percent of U.S. households don't pay income tax, and that Mitt Romney paid a lower effective tax rate on his $13.7 million of 2011 income than most American workers pay for just Social Security and Medicare.

When I hear that Mitt Romney's "heart aches" for the unemployed, all I think is "BS".

Yepper school kids across the nation are refusing to consume government mandated food menus. Tons and Tons of food goes into the garbage thanks to busy body perverts who have no business in government. This waste is because your tax dollars are in the hands of jackasses…it’s an obamanation.

Now, you have a couple of choices. You can continue to keep your head in the sand, parroting the progressive/Democrat talking points. Or, you can get your head out of that sand box, and use the brain God gave you and learn what’s really going on in this country. Go see the movie “2016.”

Or you can continue to keep your head in the sand, parroting the conservative/Republican talking points. Or you can think for yourself and demand something better than more BS from both sides: promises that disappear because "changing conditions" after the candidates are elected.

“That clock up there shows our national debt,” Romney said.“When I began this campaign, it started with $15 trillion. I mean, what is a trillion? It’s a thousand billions. It’s an unthinkable amount..&#8201;.&#8201 ;. When [Obama] came into office, there was just over $10 trillion in debt. Now, there’s over $16 trillion in debt. If he were reelected, I can assure you it will be almost $20 trillion in debt.”

Yup. You've bought the whole package. Pay no attention to who is really pulling the strings. Just keep repeating your mantra.
BTW, did you notice today's news that the richest Americans are now even richer? And I'll bet you are not one of them.

A sum of the GOP's true social agenda:

-Scapegoat the preferred color demographic for all our nation's problems
-Encourage violence against homosexuals
-Feign outrage over a non-existent secular war on Christianity
-Attempt to legislate the female anatomy, even though they won't refer to it by name
-Stoke the flames of racism for votes
-Exploit the xenophobic tendencies of a quarter of the public
-Pretend that lying is somehow moral
-Worship the rich, just like Jesus did

Mitt Romney claimed 47% of Americans as dependents on his taxes last year. No wonder he pays such a low tax rate.

The wealthy have seen their income rise 342% in the last 10 years.

The rest of us have seen ours stagnate or actually go down.

Probably because we are lazy, unemployed,
and just want the gubberment to take care
of us. Romney said it so it must be true
because Mormons don't lie. They may cheat
on their taxes and steal from the poor but
they don't lie.

Monsanto, Big oil, the banks and Pharmaceuticals OWN our Government. They do what they want, when they want and all for $$$$$$$$$$

Good luck changing these companies that are too big to fail and have more money than god. They don't care about the average American and it's just cancer anyway. Bon appetite!

Probably what? Thousands of jobs have been created in the last 10 years. Most of them were farmed out to foreign countries for greater profits. Companies that should have gone bankrupt through poor management have been bailed out while their executives have gotten bonuses and tax cuts. Those bailouts started during the Bush administration and continued during Obama's, no matter what the current propaganda says. Small businesses have been Wal-Marted out of business. Speculators have bought up resources like oil, raising the prices we pay for the fuel we need to get to work, while promoting candidates who blame the current office holders for the situation, regardless of the party to which they belong. The American people are farmed, sheared like sheep and blamed for their current plight. Americans are NOT lazy nor cowardly (see the "production miracle" of WW2 for evidence). That wasn't only just the "Greatest Generation", that American spirit
is still alive but held hostage.
Mormons not only lie, their doctrine states that they are not even required to treat non-Mormons ethically. Besides, Romney is also a politician, which means he is a professional liar. He is a good example of the type of rich American who views the USA as an oligarchy without responsibility for its citizens. If our government is not "of the people, by the people and for the people" then it is not a democracy or even a republic. If it refuses to take care of its own citizens, what good is it?

Staples was bailed out by Bain Capitol when Mitt Romnuts was the CEO.

They are now preparing to close 200 stores.
These investment companies do quick fixes.
They don't actually solve problems because they
don't care about problem solving.

They come.
They clean hou$e.
They leave.

In the meantime, jobs are coming back to America.
The giant has once again awoken.
Give it time.
President Obama is on the right course.

Stop focusing on Americans sex lives & women's reproductive organs
Fix the tax code.
Fix Medicare.
Bring American jobs back.
Alternative energy.
Affordable healthcare.

The End.
Obama 2012

Everytime I hear the moronic teabigots say "smaller government", "end socialism", I want to tell them to go to
Palestine. They don't have squat and the place looks like a war zone. If that's the America teabigots want, they can gft.
That's not what this country is about. It's about progressing as a civilized, thoughtful society that's based on inclusion and gives everyone a shot at success. Apparently that's just too big of an idea for teapublitards to grasp.
