    Re: House Passes Middle-Class Tax Cut as Dems, GOP Try to Reach Compromise

    Figure out the principles upon which this country was built and get back to me. Anyone that continues to demonize profits, individual wealth creation, Wall Street, or business in general has no business commenting on the past.
    Obama didn't demonize those things.

    Obama took an improving economy and prolonged the negativity he promoted. Since Obama took office 4 million more Americans lost their jobs, there is higher unemployment in 2010 than in 2009 on a month to month basis and 3 trillion added to the debt. That is hardly the hope and change promised and the country is fed up with the "ongoing process."
    Society is a huge and complicated entity and only visibly changes over long periods of time. Peoples' unwillingness to watch carefully leads to their disorganized perceptions of history. They'd better get used to the "ongoing process" and stop substituting it with their own fantasies of how things could be perfect, or things will never get better.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    cutting food stamps by 26B to pump up professorial pensions is not standard protocol

    Don't know how old you are or what your experience is but I have been around a long, long time and have seen the good and the bad. I have seen people generate massive wealth and do good things with it and people create massive wealth and lose it all. Both did it due to their own decision making process and didn't need any help from the govt. Personal responsibility is a lost trait in today's entitlement society and that is promoted by leftwing ideologues all in the name of compassion. There is no compassion in an oversized allegator going into the water with a duck. Barack Obama is the oversized allegator and the American public are the ducks.

    We don't live in a perfect world and will make mistakes. People learn by their mistakes and don't do it again. Millions of people have declared bankruptcy and worked their way back to the top. It is the time to enact some tough love in this country and let people fail. Until liberals allow that to happen this country will never get back to the greatness it once had. Barack Obama certainly isn't the one to lead us back to greatness.

    Sure trapped a lot of people in this forum, didn't he? Many still buy the rhetoric and ignore the substance. Any govt. big enough to provide everyone with everything they need is also big enough to take it all away quickly. Beware of false prophets promising to take care of you and that is what Obama did and many are now disappointed in the outcome.

    His arms were messed up from crashing a plane in Vietnam. The only reason the enemy kept him alive was because his dad was an admiral. If it had been anyone else, they would have died.

    you should be ashamed of yourself

    or not

    McCain spent six weeks in the hospital while receiving marginal care.[33] By then having lost 50 pounds (23 kg), in a chest cast, and with his hair turned white,[33] McCain was sent to a different camp on the outskirts of Hanoi[39] in December 1967, into a cell with two other Americans who did not expect him to live a week.[40] In March 1968, McCain was put into solitary confinement, where he would remain for two years.[41]

    In mid-1968, John S. McCain, Jr. was named commander of all U.S. forces in the Vietnam theater, and the North Vietnamese offered McCain early release[43] because they wanted to appear merciful for propaganda purposes,[44] and also to show other POWs that elite prisoners were willing to be treated preferentially.[43] McCain turned down the offer; he would only accept repatriation if every man taken in before him was released as well. Such early release was prohibited by the POW's interpretation of the military Code of Conduct: To prevent the enemy from using prisoners for propaganda, officers were to agree to be released in the order in which they were captured.[33]

    In August 1968, a program of severe torture began on McCain.[45] He was subjected to rope bindings and repeated beatings every two hours, at the same time as he was suffering from dysentery.[33][45] Further injuries led to the beginning of a suicide attempt, stopped by guards.[33] After four days, McCain made an anti-American propaganda "confession".[33] He has always felt that his statement was dishonorable, but as he later wrote, "I had learned what we all learned over there: Every man has his breaking point. I had reached mine."[46][47] Many American POWs were tortured and maltreated in order to extract "confessions" and propaganda statements, with many enduring even longer and worse treatment;[48] virtually all of them eventually yielded something to their captors.[49] McCain subsequently received two to three beatings weekly because of his continued refusal to sign additional statements.[50]

    LOL!

    most house seats to change hands in 72 years, most state reps in history

    obamite's are obstinate in denial

    What is new about the election is the 3rd party, the tea party, and that may present its ugly head again.
    callling the american electorate ugly is really dumb, losing politics

    it's why the apologists are now a fringe

    and what's ugly is trashing a tortured pow war hero

    in my book, anyway

    party on
