    Can you please point out where I asked for anything for myself? I will be happy to review it. As a long haul truck driver I can assure you I have plenty of money, thanks. I'm guessing I could buy and sell you three times over. There, now do I have credibility? I'm fairly well off, so I count and am to be admired? Whatever.

    So, where did I demand anything of my government, for myself, in any of these posts? ANY OF THEM. I'm sticking up for the poor and fighting the nasty. Nothing more.

    Where does this occur, again? I'd love to see where I have written anything close to that. Really, all you have to do is actually look.

    Prosperity Christianity, haven't heard the term in some time....
    Certainly the smart preachers will suck up to the rich, that is where the money is....another term to describe them is Mutual Admiration Societies....

We take care of our own, a Biblical principle I don't expect you to know much about. Isaiah 58, if you want to know what ultimately happens to nations, and people, that refuse to care for their needy and down-trodden.

    Maybe, just maybe, you fine little conservative wrecking balls could be constructive for just a bit? Btw, if you are so effing brilliant and your policies so great, why the crash? Why the crash after Reagan's folly? Why, when all is said and done, cons have grown government more than anyone since Johnson? You realize Reagan grew it about 185%, little George about 89%, right? Clinton? About half of what little George grew it. Carter? About 38%.

    Stop lying or get educated. One or the other, please.
    According to liberals high taxes mean no deficit and your state has among the highest in the nation and 15 billion deficit in 2010. Facts don't mean anything to you yet you tell me I am lying. What is it about the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Sunshine Review that is a lie. Just saying it doesn't make it so. Seems those numbers worked quite well when Clinton was taking credit for the employment but not now? 9.6% unemployment is terrible yet for some reason you think that is a good thing. One of these days you are going to get a job and find the value of more take home pay. Hope I am around to see that.

    Let's see if I have this right, the budget of TX for fiscal year 2011-2012 hasn't been debated or written yet but all these experts know there will be a huge shortfall. Why are these sources credible and the history of TX not? TX requires a balanced budget, has no state income taxes, and a part time legislature.

    I find it quite telling that you and others seem to take great job in posting false information that in no way is accurate. Please explain why? Could it be that TX is successful and its economic policies make liberals look foolish?

    Re: CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan

    Yet the state of TX just elected another 20 Republicans to the Legislature. Obviously they didn't get your memo, wonder why the people are turning against liberalism? Apparently there is a disconnect between what you are reporting and what is actually happening in this state. You seem to have a serious problem giving credit where it is due and stealing shamelessly. Seems to me that Utah is a Conservative state and the people there understand personal responsibility. It doesn't appear that you have grasped that concept.

    Re: CBS News Poll: Most Oppose GOP Tax Plan

    A lot of people wouldn't survive in TX because they don't understand personal responsibility. You obviously think it is the role of the govt. to guarantee individuals a "fair" wage yet I have never seen you tell us how much that is? How about telling us what a fair tax rate is for the rich? People keep moving to TX so obviously they have a different opinion of TX than you and others here. What do they know that you don't?

    You really don't know what liberals believe, other than what you've been told. Again, if your policies are so good, why the deficits and government growth under your administrations? Why are we in this mess now? I mean, you got two rounds of tax cuts through, and lost 800,000 jobs in 8 years. I'm sorry you are too, um, blind - yeah, blind - to understand your policies created this, but oh well. I'm sure the Boner will fix everything in the House. It'll be fun to watch Pelosi kick his ass - again.

    Now take your petulant little self and go play with the other spoiled children.
