Doesn't seem to slow you down when it comes to shooting from the hip and declaring other people wrong or liars.
Funny how that is.
Let me know when you read up on WHY the USA and the USSR were at DefCon III- try using google.
Make sure you mention Meir.
The matter has not piqued my interest.

We Must Remember That Obama moDeled MADITORY partiCipation on ROMNEYCARE.
Since the flip flopping draft dodger forgets that was his position in 2004.
Which Romney are we watching today?
Romneys Plan Was At The State Level.....Not The National
And I Believe It Was Voted In...Not Mandated.

You Could Move, If You Chose Not To Comply.

Obamas Plan Hands Out Penalties And Fines For Non-Compliance, Even If It Goes Against A Persons Religious Beliefs. Two Uncontitutional Attacks By The Socialist.

You know who I'm talking about ... that 47% whom Romney senses might not fall in behind him ... those too lazy to sow,
As has been pointed out to you SEVERAL times, the 47 percent includes:
American military working on the front line of Afghanistan, in combat zone

More than 60 percent of the 47 percent work full-time, just at poverty level

Over 20 percent are seniors collecting SSI

As you say: you are ignorant of the facts, it just that you continue to dwell here in your ignorance.

Thatís what happens when US b(w)ankers take it into their head they can screw the world.
US bankers?

You skanque: I guess you are thinking we over here in the US haven't heard about BARCLAYS screwing over banks in the US & Europe and their fine (£290m, about a half billion dollars)- fixing inflated interest rates and such.

Putting aside that England banking system and most of their commerce was built on slave trade... historically speaking...

As BIG as Romney could MAKE it, dipstick.

Romney SIGNED mandated healthcare for the entire state that he was governor of.

Now he hides from it.

Like he HIDES from his PRO CHOICE position.

Which Romney are we seeing today?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Donglicker, so RomneyCare MANDATES the same damn thing but you roll on the floor kicking your feet crying that Obama care violates "religious beliefs"?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

That spooge is softening your brain.

If you don't like it, you can move.

Don't you remember telling us that in the previous message?

HAHAHAHAH

PS:
A) it doesn't violate a persons religion, you m/f c/s liar.
B) if it did , so would Romneycare
C) read the First Amendment: you don't get a free ride because you don't like the law.

What makes you a bad person, Chubby, is you started it and you dish it out, and then you cry about it when it gets tossed back in your face.
It makes you a huge lame hypocrite, Chubby, and as a human being: dishonest.
I haven't cried or whined a single time. But you keep believing you have the power to make me do so. I realize you need something else to make you feel good about yourself.

I haven't worked for "most companies" and therefore my statements are drawn from personal experience with the few (several) that had reason to lay people off. Of course, I've only worked in technical capacities. Bean counters and wannabe execs are probably a dime-a-dozen.
Then you haven't worked for any large corporations.

Or, you haven't been near enough to the top to be counted as important enough to get rid of.

Do you really think they're that smart? I envision the world screwers living high-on-the-hog in Switzerland or maybe Austria.
Or at least having Swiss and Cayman Island bank accounts.
