What's "shocking" is your lack of knowledge and the amount of misinformation you're fed.
I never heard that quote. I must have missed a day on Fox News. Can you provide a link? He should have been saying this all day long till it was heard.

As to not being fully informed, I live in the United States and our media is controlled so we hear very little of what is going on.

Hmmm. Selective hearing? maybe. I missed Romney calling those people out. I know at some point I just got sick of the campaign and quit listening. Perhaps that was the point.

Thanks for the correction.

How much Haliburton made is not relevant.

It's nothing more than the Communist Jones and you parasites wanting to punish the successful by taking their profits and redistributing it to those that aren't.

Who would be next? Exxon? Microsoft? McDonalds?

This is kind of a big f#cking deal. It's the first comment I have seen in I don't know how long where someone considers what the other person said - concedes a point via facts - and then doesn't even offer a "but......" or a bunny trail or anything.(maybe that happens later but this one comment is a masterpiece).

A working mind....[wipes tear].....look everyone - it goes, "hmmm".

No, you're wrong. Most everyone, despite what they write anonymously, know both parties are guilty as charged.

The 2012 election showed up the American public is ahead of our politicians when it comes to things like legalizing weed and gay marriage, two issues that are increasing headed towards full legalization nationwide. And yet politicians in the US treat these issues like they are still and issue when in reality most Americans are for these things.

US politicians are elected to representative the people but nowadays they do anything but representative the people. US politicians do representative the interests of big business.
