    And it is still extremely sad for anyone here to advocate murder because they cannot win a debate on public policy in the real arena.
    Huh, I guess Truman and Eisenhower were fascists.

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.



    Looked at your website. This was dated in 2008 for those making $250K and the figure was "folks will earn 24.1 percent of all income, and pay 43.6 percent of all personal federal income taxes, the Tax Policy Center figures." Tell how that is fair?

    So President Obama wants to get rid of the current tax cuts we enjoy and then raise taxes more on those making $250K.

    Hell, I don't think the govt could do any better if they were "wearing a mask and holding a gun on you".

    Can you quote Ann Romney saying she knows what average women go through?

    Actually, everything I've seen from TD illustrates a deep respect for those that served. Your opinion on what he said is simply that, your opinion, not what he actually said.

    Yes, real women all over the country are lining up to identify with Ann Romeny and her half a dozen houses, two cadillacs, and 400 million dollars. What planet do you folks live on?

    Probably not enough actual respect to have any of his kids serve, or to serve himself. Hard to make a half a million dollars a year as a soldier.

    I've never seen him express any particular admiration for those who serve. You know how you really show admiration for those who serve? Go serve.

    Well you were telling me you'd been working for 30 odd years. All I said was you don't get a gold star for doing what you're supposed to do.

    I don't want to surprise you, but you ain't cherry in this "working for 30 year" thing. Most people work for what they have.

    With the Rosen/Romeny screw-up and Romney now being preceived as the Repub candidate, I wouldn't be to fast on the "minority" draw if I was you.

    Very few Americans serve...quite a few support those that do. Sounds like you'd just rather pat yourself on the back.




    p.s. Neither President Obama nor most of his cabinet served....just saying.

    Every time she speaks. She's a rich woman who's never had to worry about a thing in her lives, and now you are all wringing your hands because of some perceived insult and equating it with the ongoing Republican assault on birth control and reproductive rights. It's this right wing 'women are really happier if they're barefoot and pregnant' approach, with an emphasis on the 'pregnant.'
