    That is 100% true. You cannot export the manufacturing base overseas without harming lots of industrial workers in this part of the nation.

    Attack the site?!?!?!? I thanked you for providing it. It really gave me a good laugh. I have not seen such a combination of religious whackiness and conservative extremism combined with just pure bad taste in a long long time.

    Got any more like that Conservative?

    If a progressive created something like that as a parody, the right wing would say we went way too far into fantasy land.

    Anyone that gets most of their income from investments pays a lesser percentage of their total income in taxes than the middle class, which includes me.

    Thanks for showing that liberal compassion, laughing at someone else's misfortune? That is what liberals do so thanks for confirming that. Only a liberal would laugh at the extremely high state unemployment, 10.9% and Detroit which looks like a warzone with unemployment more than double that. Hardly results that should be laughed at.

    So Politifact trumps IRS data? Why would the IRS lie about that? You want badly to buy the Obama and liberal rhetoric. Too bad as that doesn't make you look anything but foolish.

    Nothing prevents you from sending in more, why aren't you doing that?
