How evil are these tea-baggers? To try and starve children and the poor who rely on food stamps just because… there is something very bleak and nasty in a person’s heart to make the least among us the target of your hate.

And mind you, these are the good Christians with their WWJD values that they say need to be put back in public square because after all… this is a Christian nation founded on Christian values.

They caused the mortgage crisis.
The mortgage crisis happened under George W. Bush.

The worst attack against America since Pearl Harbor

Or is this just another case of terminal self-inflicted

When will the poor decide they have some small responsibility toward feeding their offspring? They keep producing these children like they have no responsibility for feeding, clothing, or educating them. That is just wrong. No wonder they turn out aimless like Trayvon.

Whenever I see one of these so-called Christians of the far
right I stroke the peace symbol that's been hanging around
my neck for over 4o years..

It helps.

Most of these poor are illegal and shouldn't be getting benefits anyway. If the Dems knew how to use money wisely then we wouldn't have to make drastic cuts, but sadly they only know to waste. We the wise ones have to ground thebad kiddies.

Bush was President BUT Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were the leaders of Congress and BOTH the Executive and Legislative Branches are equal under the Constitution.

As for Obama, besides being a US Senator of the Majority Partry,
he actually was a significant player in the Economic Meltdown from the GITGO with his suing Citibank, and forcing them to make unsecured loans.

"Barack Obama, lead Attorney for ACORN, successfully sued Citibank in 1994 under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) forcing banks to initiate more sub-prime loans nationwide, helping fuel the Sub Prime Loan Disaster."

Do you support Rascist Mexico paying the US the TRILLIONS they stole out of the country??

If not, then you are guilty of starving kids; as well as Bankrupting Detroit.

Why not just move the border south to Guatemala? If we are paying for it, may as well own it...

So, you expect the other 20% to support those millions?

You are obviously in lock step with Obama's idea of spreading the wealth..... as long as it isn't yours.

Put your money where your mouth is... turn over 80% of your income to help pay for those food stamps, section 8 housing, Obama phones and all the other entitlements you liberals are so good at handing out.

You should move to Illinois, Obama's home state. You'd be right at home.
There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.
Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on Republicans, because there aren't any.
Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?
Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US!!!

Here's the Chicago chain of command:
President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
Thank you for the lawless combat zone in Chicago.
Of course, they're all blaming each other.
But can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
This is what your idol wants to bring to the entire nation. It is all he knows and you have your nose planted so firmly between his buttocks that it will take a team of surgeons to remove it.
State pension fund $92 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!.

Cook (''Crook?'') County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. It's all he knows. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us??? He is 'fixing' it alright!!! Just like so many former Illinois Governors 'fixed' a lot of things (elections, Senate appts, AG cover ups). It's all he knows.

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the ''big house''.

Of course he was replaced by Rod Blagojevitch who is.....oh yeah, that's right, also in the big house.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. has resigned because he is desperately fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.

The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make your license plates.

But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

But that's Obama's plan...as long as he keeps providing entitlements to the population of the entire US...nothing is going to change...Democrats stay in control. It's the ''perfect fix''. And the Land of Lincoln (land of the honest Republican)... will be no more......

Just curious... what was your reaction to the Senate voting earlier this year to cut $4 billion from food stamps?

Are they also evil? teabaggers? bleak? nasty? hateful?

Where's your post on that?

You do know that conservatives donate more to charity than liberals, don't you?

I know, I know... never let a crisis go to waste.

btw, your Critical Race Theory is rearing its ugly head again.

It sure is easy for you right wing loosers to dehumanize and group that is not you.
What is the plan for the $40 billion cut?
Use it for corporate welfare?
God knows we can't use it for anything sensiible.
