    The end for them is in Nov.
    Even Soros sees that.
    so what will life be like for you when no assistance programs are available? can you live without social security, medicare or medicaid?

    Absolutely. As soon as they write me a check for all the damn money I've paid into those programs, with interest, I'll invest it on my own.

    you thought these agenda driven rags are an unbiased source?
    I didn't think anything.

    You wanted to know who's money is behind the Tea Party. I gave you the information. You then implied that the entity reporting this information (The Guardian) is a "tabloid rag" (so obviously they must be making it all up!). I then provided additional sources that aren't generally considered to be "tabloid rags" (except perhaps by the voices in your head).

    Make of the documented facts whatever you wish. Impugning the messenger doesn't change them in the slightest.

    Because it's stupid and not worthy of a response. If you'd actually READ the article I originally linked to (or, heaven forbid! do some of your own research to properly educate yourself), you'd know the answer to this. But as you've so kindly shown us, you don't actually read the information provided before you start spouting off.

    And how interesting that you have nothing to say about those details you so desperately needed.

    Looks like the Queen has been deposed. Could the party be seeking a bus under which to throw her? Are they recognising the liability she represents? Does anyone care?

    ROTFLOL...
    Palin polled 13.5% of the votes and was pipped to the post by Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, on 14%.
    2nd Place amongst Tea Partiers 2-years from the election by a HALF PERCENT to a NJ Governor who has been kicking ass in a state mishandled by Dems for generations. Pretty damn good position if you ask me.

    Perhaps you misunderstood the word "Pipped". Not "piped". LOL...

    But Liberals need to make a big deal out of anything that takes focus off of the real story if the day.

    That being Obama is lower in the polls almost daily,Nancy Pelosi keeps losing Democrats on tax cuts - Jonathan Allen - POLITICO.com, Harry Reid on the Attack, but Still Lags Sharron Angle in Polls - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Now that's news stories.
    I love it when Libs post these stories. They make me howl. Half my time on DP is in the search for laughs like this OP. This place has great entertainment, but not half as funny as democraticunderground. Funny name for the place as I've been banned twice there for posing as a Bluedog Hillary supporter. Perhaps the third time will be a charm.

    You can pay for them yourself. You do anyway. How's that? Manage your own money and life, and if you can't... then pay for a little assistance, or do some research on the web.

    It's not rocket science you know... a little discipline. I make "X", and "Y" goes to rent, and "Z" goes to insurance (or your company pays for it), and "A" goes to retirement fund (investments). What remains is for living. Not too complex. No need for the most bloated, inefficient, wasteful enterprise to force it on the masses because you're too lazy or undisciplined.

    Then there's charity; with less taxes folks give more, and private institutions are far more effective than government at administering aid.

    I thought the left was railing against the Reps for being only for lower taxes. Suddenly we've been promoted back.

    Were any of those bridges ever built? I happen to manage an ear-mark for a project in Chicago? Would you like to know the names of the elected officials who supported that?

    Those things will still be there for me when needed. No one is trying to do away with them any time soon. We need to start doing something now, for future generations though.
    I forget who one Rep. was, but he wanted to raise the retirement age for those under 40, and give them the choice of paying into SS or paying into a private plan. Someone else wanted to raise the retirement age for those under 55.
    We all know something needs to be done to save the programs or eventually do away with them. The important word is "eventually.".
    I love how the MSM lies about candidates who want to fix the problems by saying they are going to take away those programs. Talk about fearmongering.
    No one has advocated doing without a long term plan to protect people.
    Yes, some candidates think they never should have been implimented in the first place, but they were. You can't just do away with them now.
    I doubt you can find anyone who says he will. You are just trying to scare granny.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
