Of course you understand that there is actually no problem with voter fraud in the United States.

Fact - While defending its precedent-setting photo ID law before the Supreme Court, Indiana was unable to cite a single instance of voter impersonation in its entire history.

Lie - Last December, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus falsely declared that Wisconsin is "absolutely riddled with voter fraud."

Fact - In fact, the state's voter fraud rate in 2004 was 0.0002 percent—just 7 votes.

Lie - In 2008, John McCain falsely claimed fraudulent registrations collected by ACORN were "one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy."

Fact - The Congressional Research Service investigated this claim and found that no ACORN registered voter ever improperly voted.

Federal convictions for registration fraud for 2002-05 = 3,( yes three out of 214 Million votes.

Have some more facts demonstrating this is Right Wing idiocy designed to keep poor people and minorities from voting.

Let's look at other "major" dangers to America:

Between 2000 and 2010, there were:

649 million votes cast in general elections

47,000 UFO sightings

441 Americans killed by lightning

So America, your odds 47,000 to 3 that you'll see a UFO before you encounter a fraudulently registered person voting.

If these facts don't make Right Wingers cringe in shame they are simply fascists stealing democracy from America by preventing Americans from voting -

then the Right Wingers have lost all ability to feel shame.

Ms. Glorya:
He/she has been around the Douglasville forum (I know this thread is state wide) as several other names. After a bit of time, many posters got bored of him (no offense to Bored or Bored Monitor) and stop responding to him/her. He/she "left", but later resurfaced as another poster, as many of the unregistered posters seem to do (not doo)...
Ignoring him/her seems to be the best action...
I will certainly consider your advice. Thank you, Dville.

Hey, Synergy helped me prove I was correct when I provided the evidence that medical insurance companies exist to make as much money as posse and provide the smallest return to policyholders possible.

Now he should agree its insane to turn your money for health care over to the system designed to screw you the most.

Single payer government medical insurance - everyone pay - everyone is covered - all other industrialized contrives love it.

But they're smarter than us.

Oh, now I get it.

Call me a liar for informing folks that over One Billion Dollars that could have healed sick children, instead went to one man for cheating the government and shareholders out of billions more.

Then when overwhelming evidence is provided that my assertion is exactly accurate and demonstrates the idiocy of private medical insurance -

Right Wingers say - Never mind.

Right Wingers love to just make stuff up ,( they have to, of course),
and just hate it so when we Moderates and Progressives actually tell the truth.

Truth - a foreign concept in Right Wing World.

Sequestration was Obamas idea from the get-go, to make repubs look bad in the eyes of the liberal media and his stoogie followers.
It finally backfired on him.
We'll see what happens within the next month when all of them are held accountable with the next deadline. My guess will be they will extend it another few months because the libtards want more money to waste and the repubs want responsible spending.
Making Boehner look like a fool ?

Ain't that like making a dog like cheese, heck, it's just a natural thing.

The Senate is led by a Libtard moron called Reid.

And the White house is lead by the biggest Socialists moron of all, Obama.
Damn, keep trying, but you just gotta join us on Planet Earth sometime.

"So much for "open-ended QE driven recovery". Moments ago the March Non-farm payroll hit and it was a doozy, printing at 88K, below the lowest forecast of 100K, well below the expected number of 190K, and a tragedy compared to the February revised print of 268K (was 236K). This was the biggest miss to expectations since December 2009 and the worst print since June 2012. The unemployment rate declined to 7.6%, but this was due entirely to the collapse in the labor force participation rate, which declined by 20 bps to 63.3%, a new 30 year low.

And now the time to come up with excuses is here."
So sorry we are taking longer to rebuild the house the Right Wingers burned to the ground.

Don't worry, just as happened after Clinton got us a balanced budget, steady growth, low unemployment, and we were paying down the national debt,

Uninformed voters will put Right Wingers back in power to but the house down again.

It's called the cycle of ignorance.

Now just like last time, when Right Wingers accused me of being "full of it" when I pointed out medical insurance company executives received up to a BILLION DOLLARS,

I provided the documentation demonstrating that, as usual, I was accurate, and the Right Wingers are clueless.

Now, having established my credibility hundreds of times, if I go to the trouble of providing numerous sources for your edification-
we know you're too busy enjoying those Socialist Security and Medicare Benefits,
will you admit I am the informed source and you're a blowhard, too lazy to do your own research ?

And never have claimed to be a war expert. But, what that man did while America mourned an American ambassador and two other heroes was appalling. MIA during the incident, and hopped AF1 to Sin City for a celebrity filled fundraiser shortly after our ambassador was tied and dragged through the streets. I shall NEVER forget.

Now that I'm "caught up" on reading this thread, it's interesting to note that a certain someone has not responded to posts with questions about "their" tax proposal...
Interesting? Yes.
Surprising? No. You have to know what you're talking about to provide such information.
His/her response of "I'll get around to it when I want", or whatever, is a good indication that he/she has NO CLUE about taxes and may be doing a whole bunch of research to not further embarrass him or herself...
Or, it could be because I was at work till about 8 last night, and was dealing with family/friend issues between posts here last night and am back at work at 7:00 am this morning?

You've just made about 6 posts in a row, every one of them nothing more than insulting people. No discussing facts or positions, no real arguments of any kind - just insulting people. Is that what it takes for you start your day? Is your self-loathing so strong?

That is a lot of money but the stockholders must think that they are worth it. These guys usually make the company at least ten times more than their salary in profit for the company. Funny no one says anything about these sports stars raking in all the money that they do. They get all this outlandish money and fame for doing something they love to do. Wow! What a deal.
I think it is called capitalism. If they do a great job and make the company enough money they are rewarded.
I don't hear people screaming and protesting to cut these sports hero's salary to cut ticket prices to the games. Sounds like a double standard to me.
