"A spotlight over what appears to be conservative "scams" in order to part supporters from their money, but instead of the money going to support conservative causes, they're going to the very high-profile individuals involved in these groups."

Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go?
It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions --
including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees
across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying
union dues.
It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama
almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union
dues).
All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their
bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America .
The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama,
the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means.

And it also went to Republicans and their coffers also. Lets not pretend that your Republican party is somehow doing you and I a favor by promoting their hypocrisy.

<quoted text> You're mistaken, because frankly, the only thing you're focused on is tax hikes on the rich. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but your non-stop whining is full of your real agenda. You don't care about "the children". I don't buy that for a minute. You're the same b*tch who doesn't support increasing public schools funding, and without these children getting a proper education, they'll be even more deeply burdened than you can imagine. INVESTING in America is required, not incidental or something you eliminate in order to cope with the deficit. We can, in fact, cut our way into complete stagnation where nobody here has any hope. You're the same b*tch who resents WIC payments to feed children whose brains are being developed and which, without adequate nutrition, they will never have good minds. Once that window closes, it slams shut. Do you want a bunch of dimwitted idiots running the streets, or would you prefer we have people capable of holding a job and contributing?
Whine, whine, whine. You somehow believe that anybody who sees the absolute need to invest in America (which does involve spending money) is somehow liberal as opposed to thoughtful about the future. Nobody assumes raising tax rates on the wealthy is going to solve our problems. It simply displaces the immediate burden away from those who can least afford to be taxed more in favor of maintaining some level of support where it is greatly needed to avoid hunger and misery. It leaves consumer money in the hands of consumers to help maintain and/or boast demand for goods and services - mandatory if we are to lift the economy and production and create jobs. Otherwise everybody can continue in decline as will the infrastructure.
If we don't invest in a crumbling infrastructure now, how do you expect us to compete in a global environment? We're heading for failure without those kinds of investments.
The President has made it clear that he is willing to make spending cuts, and he is willing to discuss changes to both Medicare and Social Security - just not on a moment's notice. He's demanded changes be thoughtful and that any restructure is given the kind of consideration it requires not to harm Americans who have spent their working lives paying for this program. It isn't some d*mned "freebie". They've paid for the privilege and without having any option as long as they worked on somebody's payroll.
I'm very harsh with you because I don't believe much of anything you say since you never say anything that isn't negative or fearful or slanderous about the President.
Why don't you say where we should invest, or if you think we can regain a position of strength in a global competitive economy by simply cutting our way to success? How does that work? What economic model is that?
who's focued ONLY on tax hikes? who? does the name Obama ring a bell?lol

So B.O. goes to Michigan yesterday to shown his support for the union members that help put him back in office by telling them to fight for their right.
(Check out his speech)

Today the union thugs beat up the right to work supporters.

And it's B.O.'s fault!

Right?

Protesters rip down the tent of "Americans for Prosperity" at the Michigan State Capitol. That's a great way to tell the Koch Brothers to go "F^%$#@K" themselves.

I get a kick out of how Fox News portrays a treasonous Republican party in Michigan as the "victims" because they decided to mess with the unions.

We all know that the Republican party is attempting to attack unions becuase Republicans like to pay Americans crap wages.

Well all I have to say is F!@#$%^K Fox News, Republicans and Conservatives who think that paying crap wages is somehow "American" or "Patriotic".

Lets see all the anti-union blowhards take a cut in their own profits and lets see how much they like it. Better yet...... lets "TAX" the crap out of the rich since they think that "the right to get paid less" for Americans is a good idea!!!

Hi Jack, lol, remember how exciting it was to receive mail when we were kids? That's what Ralff reminds me of when he makes those announcements. Like Charlie Brown hanging around the mailbox, waiting for that invitation to Violet's birthday party.

That's right. Tax the rich since the rich are the only ones making any money right now. If the rich were to actually employ their "trickle down economics" ideology there would me more Americans capable of paying taxes but that's not the case.

So we're only going to focus on taxing the rich until the rich decides to "create jobs".

You don't like you you can move back to Canada or wherever your ancestors came from!

Several of my superiors have already heard it, and they kinda silently nod- we have enough demons to deal with without adding more. Unlike someone (USM), I have peoples' lives to consider, much more important than proving how much I know (or can google, as long as I don't have any responsibility). Once again, thank you for your advice.
Moving on...
"I have peoples' lives to consider"

Oh BS! All the planing and risk mitigating happens way before they reveal the operations order to your Brigade commander. By the time it get's down to your level, it's nothing more than execution. You have no voice. That's why you are called Infantry.

"Infantry: From Middle French infanterie, from older Italian, possibly from Spanish infanterķa "foot soldiers, force composed of those too inexperienced or low in rank for cavalry," from infante "foot soldier," originally "a youth", either way from Latin infans'(child) who doesn't speak."

It's good that the Koch Brothers funded "Americans for Prosperity" got "beaten up". They're nothing more than meatwad puppets that want to attack the wages of Americans.

Too bad there was no bloodshed to go with that "getting beaten up".

Uhmmm...I think you've got that backwards.
Free thinking doesn't fit the PARTISAN realm and never has.
Bipartisanship on the other hand (reaching across the aisle to find common ground for the common good) requires a great deal of "free thinking" and a good measure of courage in this hyper-partisan political culture.
Keep trying....
free thinking?
let's see... in a Constitutional Republic:
giving ALL women the right to vote 1) by amendmend or 2) National Law?
a consensus was reached and an amend was put forth and passed. that IS free thinking about an old idea (voters' rights).#2 would be UN-Constitutional!
going to War 1) pass an amendment or 2) pass a War Powers Act?
since the Constitution was NOT amended,#2 the WPA (funny, yes?) IS a USURPTION of IT. may be free thinking but NOT legal.
I guess my point is: free thinking is NOT only bi-partisanship and reaching a consensus... NOT in a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
try again....

The problem ralff, is that you change positions more often than most of us change our underwear and more often than not it seems to be out of the convenience of the moment rather than conviction.
You support Obamacare.
You voted for Obama.
You think the rich need to quit whining and pay their fair share of taxes...
I hate to tell you this ralff, but I think you're a democrat.

Notice the attention deficit disorder of jack's too? I said;

But jack could only hold on for "...you will see me posting in support and opposition of issues from both points of view..."

That changed the whole meaning of it.

I am sure NTR will have words with him about that! <Cough, cough, choke>
