    Oh, the rich don't need mass transit, so we shouldn't help those who could benefit from it, such as commuting, traveling, vacations & weekend destinations.
    What do you have against people being free to walk out of their homes, pull the car out of their garage and drive to their destination, independent of socialized transportation?
    If I gave you a hundred dollar bill for free, does that make me against you? And who said I wanted to take away your private sleigh ride? I don't. Just because we have mass transit, does not mean you have to use it, by force or otherwise.

    What I have in mind for you is an environmentally static sealed, computerized glass highway that zips you along at 200-300 mph, no more accidents, no batteries, no vibration from the road bed. And that is what you will drive your vehicle on.

    The 1.8 percent pace of increase in gross domestic product in the first quarter, according to a Commerce Department report Thursday, is down from a 3.1 percent gain in the final months of 2010. It is also lower than the level of growth that, over time, would be expected to drive down joblessness. The U.S. economy needs to grow about 2.5 percent annually to keep unemployment steady given continual growth in the labor force and in worker efficiency; even stronger GDP growth is needed to bring unemployment down.

    actually i pretty much stopped being a fan of palin when it became obvious that she was incapable of remaining above a fray. I'm an unabashed Daniels man.

    but if you are against inflammatory rhetoric, then you need to explain how you justify thinking that Republicans are the ones slinging the demagoguery and rhetoric when we are getting treated to such wonderful gems as the kind of crap we are seeing in their reactions to recent events on the hill.

    Politifact Gives "pants on fire" rating to Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee ad Accusing Republicans of "Ending Medicare"

    Chris Matthews: Ryan's Medicare Plan will Kill Off half the people who watch my show

    Daily Kos: Ryan Plan will Kill Seniors

    New DNC Chief: Ryan Plan Literally A Death Trap for Seniors

    Jesse Jackson: The Budget Fight is like the Civil War

    Elanor Norton Holmes (D): Pushing to ban Federal Funding for Abortion in DC is the equivalent of bombing innocent civilians

    Harry Reid: GOP wants women to get cancer

    Nancy Pelosi: GOP Waging War on Women

    Louise Slaughter: Republicans came to Congress to Kill Women


    ....and that's just a small smattering of the last couple of months.

    I mean for crying out loud man, the PRESIDENT went in front of a bunch of college students and accused Republicans of attacking their grandparents and autistic kids. You think the activists are going to be more restrained?
