    I never said Democrats were innocent.

    Also.. I agree with that list about Eric Holder. He needs to be disbarred and removed from office. Then his assets need to be seized.

    Who is in the news this week (two dems for ethical violations). I say, get rid of them all and start over. Pretty PC in doing that.

    The difference is .... Democrats create social programs; Republicans have no problem stealing from the poor to give to the rich; however, they complain bitterly when they have to pay taxes which support welfare.

    It's absolutely hypocritical.
    such much nonsense in that. how do you steal from the poor so much to make others rich

    the populist nonsense is getting trite

    You THINK it would do harm then good. That's part of how you are trapped.

    Have you sought out family, church, local/state charities? Or did you sign up for Gov't right away? I'm betting you went straight to the Gov't.

    I believe in the power of YOU, and I think the Gov't makes it far too easy to rely on it then yourself.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    @MrVicchio have you ever had to go to a church or charity for food? Of course not you have the biggest charity of all, the US government thanking you over and over for being a vet.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    It's kind of like withholding tax..... if you had to go up to a window each month and cash your check, then give the government 30 percent of it, there would be a revolution the next month.

    If you had to go hat in hand to a church or a soup kitchen to eat, you would get off your ass and take the first job you could find. You'd spend 12+ hours a day looking for work and there would be no such thing as a job being beneath you.

    Be thankful that we have vets..... they are the ones that bought you the right to shoot your mouth off, most of the time with their blood.... ass hole.

    My Dad's church has a food-bank of sorts, as well as a free walking clinic - and because *everything* is provided by donation (everything from bandaids to the Dr's time, to bags of groceries and toilet paper) - they have very scare resources to actually go around.

    Charity is great - but it doesn't go as far as you think.
