I often wondered why people with money would vote for a Socialist/Democrat politician.
But if you think about it, it makes sense in some cases.
Hollywood billionaires like Oprah grew up poor, made a lot of money relatively quickly. They appeal to the low information, TV-addicted crowd for their fan base. So they carry on the entitlement mentality of the poor they grew up with, and cash the checks from their fan base of ignorant people.
The SMART billionaires like Soros manipulate currency markets for their millions. So how better to rig the game than to have inside information from your purchased politicians? That's how Princess Pelosi has accumulated tens of millions of dollars while being paid less than $200K/year as a representative.
Corporate leaders that seem leftist are doing so out of self-defense. If a leftist is in charge of the gubbermint, and the gubbermint can destroy your business at will, you do whatever you can to appeal to the leftist in charge of the gubbermint.
The leftist politicians use both angles-- they buy the votes from the ignorant leftist voters with gubbermint handouts, then extort money from corporations and harvest all the kickbacks and inside deals that come with it.
Welcome to the New America.
Hollywood billionaires like Oprah??? ROFLMAO

You're half right__a huge improvement over your usual nonsense.

But, but Obama's drone attacks are a okay with you? Really? This isn't even during a war-but that is okay while the other is not.
I far prefer drones as the weapon of choice as compared to U.S. boots on the ground.

Do you recall who started those drone attacks?

Where was your outrage when Bush was killing American citizens?!!

"On November 5, 2002, a US Predator Drone fired a hellfire missile at a car traveling through the Mar’ib province of Yemen, destroying it and killing the six people inside. One of the dead was a US citizen. One of the dead was the country’s most senior level al Qaeda operative, wanted for the October 12, 2000 bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors."

You people are such hypocrites.

LET me make this simple. SHOW us proof that there was a bill approving of enhanced interrogation -fool.
There was NONE.
You are talking about something after the fact and not a bill passed by Reps approving it's use.
Are you always this slow?
Why don't you read the bill Bush vetoed for Pete's sake! There was absolutely no way in hell Bush was going to allow any reports to be issued on the illegal enhanced interrogation practices under his watch.

Sec. 206 (c)12 for example:

"The Director of National Intelligence shall, in consultation with the head of the element of the intelligence community concerned, prepare an annual personnel level assessment for such element of the intelligence community.....

(12) A list of all contractors that have been the subject of an investigation completed by the Inspector General of any element of the intelligence community during the preceding fiscal year, or are or have been the subject of an investigation by such an Inspector General during the current fiscal year.

Sec. 307 (b1):

The Director of National Intelligence shall submit to the congressional intelligence committees a report describing the personal services activities performed by contractors across the intelligence community....

J) an analysis of procedures in use in the intelligence community for conducting oversight of contractors to ensure identification and prosecution of criminal violations... or other abuses committed by contractors or contract personnel.

(2) ACTIVITIES- Activities described in this paragraph are the following:
(A) Intelligence collection.
(B) Intelligence analysis.
(C) Covert actions, including rendition, detention, and interrogation activities.

Don't forget the IRS sending tax return monies overseas.
The Internal Revenue Service issued $4 billion in fraudulent tax refunds last year to people using stolen identities, with some of the money going to addresses in Bulgaria, Lithuania and Ireland, according to a Treasury report released Thursday.
The IRS sent a total of 655 tax refunds to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 refunds went to a lone address in Shanghai.

So what's your point? Identity theft is hardly something new.

Can you ever follow a train of thought?

You were the one bemoaning bombs during wars causing deaths of citizens. I asked if the Obama drones used outside of war was okay with you.

So, your answer is drones used when we are not at war with a country is okay, but bombs during a war is bad?

Duck Dynasty-endorsed Republican wins La. House seat

By PAUL BEDARD | NOVEMBER 17, 2013 AT 1:03 PM

An unknown political novice who has never visited Washington, D.C., won a special election for Louisiana's 5th District seat Saturday on the endorsement of the “Duck Dynasty” family and a promise to fix Obamacare.

Vance McAllister beat establishment candidate Neil Riser, a state senator, in Saturday's runoff election created when former Rep. Rodney Alexander resigned on September 26 to become secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.

He told local KNOE TV that “Washington may not be ready for me.”

In the race, McAllister, a businessman in the Monroe, La., area, self-funded most of his campaign. He is a friend of the patriarch of TV’s “Duck Dynasty,” Phil Robertson, who endorsed his congressional bid.

A handful of Washington GOP operatives tried to get one of the members of the Duck Dynasty family to run for the seat, but failed.

But the race showed just how powerful the Duck Dynasty trademark is in the area, said an election observer.

The main reason I have a deep-seated mistrust, not hatred, towards this president is because I knew this country could never be blessed if our leader had such a disregard towards the sanctity of human life that he could callously deny a born alive botched abortion baby medical care. Not voting to allow medical care is the same as voting no to allowing medical care.
The other reasons should be obvious...his lack of real-world life experiences, a lack of real-world leadership experiences, the total disconnect to understanding what makes this country tick, and shady and corrupt affiliations had a lot to do with it.
The fact he was voted by a nonpartisan organization to be the most radical left liberal in Congress didn't give me much hope he would have my best interests at heart either.
My concerns and mistrust have been proven justified.
better to stick to Obama's obvious and glaring real faults instead of your narrow moral judgments...
