That miserable attempt at humor couldn't hurt anybody's feelings you turd-faced mother***er! LOL

You weren't laughing when your savior Messiah went down in flames on election night! You'd been jerking off so much over his coming in and saving the universe that it was hard to tell where the jism left off and the feces from Limbaugh's rectal cavity began! LOL

Like I said before...nothing like a Tea Bagger sore loser with his panties in a total uproar! LOL

I hate to tell you this Shit-for-Brains but Jay Leno also makes jokes at Romney's expense! I appreciate humor no matter what the target is but just am not amused by lame brained Tea Bagger stupidity masquerading as humor...and yeah there is a difference...even if you are so blinded by turds from Limbaugh's poop chute that you don't appreciate or understand that difference! LOL

Of course you're the same crazy mother***er who said right here on Topix that every man, woman and child in Afghanistan should be wiped out by the USA because the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim. I'm sure you think that funny too! Whatever.....

Yeah when those few words were in effect "every man woman and child in Afghanistan should be killed by the USA because the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim" it's a pretty good indication of your true character.
Your true Savior is Jesus??? Now THAT is funny! Jesus would be so proud of the above sentiment eh?No your true saviors are Rush and Romney and all the other crackpot right wingers. In another era your true saviors would have been Hitler and the Grand Wizard of the KKK! You're not fooling anybody here dude!

As that Great American benefactor and Republican humanist, Boss Tweed once said, "The wonderful thing about a democracy is a poor man, as well as a rich man is free to sleep under a bridge." An aside to Seymour:(Don't read this Riccky, it might hurt your feelings.) Riccky isn't white, and he's not black: he's YELLOW.

With today's life expectancies most of them are getting several times what they paid into the system. In addition many of their wives who didn't work and contribute into the system are also making out like bandits, even long after hubby has kicked the bucket! Same with Medicare, the 1000 pound gorilla! Like I said you're all for cutting the shit out of every program except those two!
Not the workers fault the government spent the money on non-earner hand outs instead of putting it away for the people that earned it. You're right, I don't pity those who CHOSE not to work. I'm not talking about the truly needy, I'm talking about the lazy who didn't contribute anything but debt. You know, the ones the democrates gave money to in exchange for votes.

The fact remains that for many (admittedly not all, some die before they even can draw it!) Social Security is a very lucrative proposition. It of course also covers disabled workers and their dependents. Without SS we would have a MASSIVE senior citizen welfare problem, now more than ever because so few can afford to save for retirement. Compared to Medicare the answers to SS's financial problems are relatively simple and easily accomplished to keep it healthy for decades to come.
As far as giving money for votes I guess you're forgetting about all the fat cats and the Republicans promises to make them even fatter in exchange for votes. Not only don't they want those Bush era tax cuts on the fat cats to expire they wanted capital gains completely free of taxes. So the REALLY fat cats like Romney who only paid 14 per cent on over 20 million in income (mostly capital gains!) and the rest of his fat cat cronies could be millionaires, not even have to work, and pay NO TAXES! Now that's what I call giving money in exchange for votes! Yeah I know...you selfish Tea Bagger c***suckers are only worried about food stamps!
Many retired people may well receive more from social security than they paid in, as they should. In most cases had they invested that same money n the private marketplace they would have much more than their total SS receipts.

Capital gain income is made possible by investing money that was already taxed once.

I'm sure you're also all in favor of a 100% death tax since its evident that you won't have anything to leave to your children.

First of all Potty Mouth, I'm not a tea bagger. I'm a middle of the road republican.

Second, 14% of 20 million is 2.8 million. That's probably 100 times more than you even earn a year, or likely 200 times the amount you get on welfare which is probably more the case.

You sound jealous of people who worked hard for their fortunes. I'm sure not jealous of lazy people like yourself who are on welfare and expect a free handout, no more than I'm jealous of a cockroach.

What percent of taxes did you pay last year? Oh that's right, you didn't pay any. LOL

Boss Tweed was at heart a true Republican. He posed as a Democrat to try and make people think he was a good guy. Poor people do not generally own TV networks and newspaper chains. Therefore the information you receive from their flunkies like Rush, Hannity, Glenn Beck, etc. is skewed. A healthy mind will normally recognize this.

It's "priceless" that Paul Harvey was gay huh? Okay! If you say so!
As far as everyone "standing before their maker" (uh huh!) someday you better worry that your proclamation that every man, woman and child in Afghanistan should be killed by the USA because the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim might send you down to that other place with that dude with the horns and pitchfork and the 24/7 barbecue. I hear God sort of frowns on your kind of bigotry! You know what I'm sayin' homie? Praise the Lord!
From what I have read about the man, he was not gay. What's priceless is how the Liberal, which normally is the homosexual lover uses "being gay" as an insult. I will have God judge me, not you here on topix.

Look who our great leader is getting advice from now:

our president has consulted with radical leftist MSNBC hosts -- Al Sharpton, the street rat; Rachel Maddow, the anti-family lunatic; and Lawrence O'Donnell, an avowed socialist -- on tax rates.

Al Sharpton is one of the lowest people in the United States of America in terms of his past history -- a man who falsely accused a police detective of molesting and smearing feces on a teenaged girl, among other things.

Now he's rewarded by being invited to the White House to talk about fiscal policy.

Al Sharpton, as far as I know, has never produced a product that anyone ever needed, nor a service -- other than providing rent-a-mobs to demagogues.

But he's invited to the White House, along with someone who has no qualifications to discuss economics, plus an avowed socialist.

What if a conservative had won the presidency and invited three people from the KKK to the White House?

What kind of outcry would there be?
