    Re: How many properties (houses) do you think the Romneys own?

    I would not hesitate to say this president is more successful than the last and done a decent job overall.

    People talk about smaller government but it's not realistic every developed nation has a strong central government, and if the the national government literally spent only on military this would be a federation.

    Interstates are not free, air ports are not free, schools are not free, safe food and drugs are not free, NASA is not free, the military is not free, social security is not free, talk about money not growing on trees.

    What we can do is cut on waste. It's a huge and relatively simple problem when departments intentionally waste resources at the end of the fiscal year when they have surplus so they'd get the same (or a larger) budget next year.

    We should reward departments for cutting costs while delivering the same results. We should hold people accountable to intentional waste to inflate the budget.

    I'd rather him own lots of houses, pay lots of real estate taxes on them, buy lots of stuff to fill them, and hire lots of people to maintain them than send that money to the Cayman Islands or invest in companies overseas or wherever else it would otherwise go.

    Re: How many properties (houses) do you think the Romneys own?

    This is how I make a living these days. I'm getting a little old for regular businesses so I decided to become a landlord.

    I didn't mean to give the impression that these were all for my personal use. Of those 8 houses, I occupy one and my ex-wife occupies another. I rent out the other 6. They're all in the sane complex and I've paid every different price for them. The last 5 were irresistibly cheap. I rent them out way below market and my tenants love me (and will never move). I hope to buy a few more but NOTHING is for sale anymore since the banks quit repo-ing anything.

You might think you're not rich and you might think owning 8 houses means nothing but I bet many would find that you ownership of homes does influence their judgement of you. We are a bit careful about telling people we own 3.

    I'm not saying Romney doesn't realize most people have 1 home.
    Apple doesn't need anybody to invest in the IPad, their profit margin is ridiculous in comparison to most other multi-billion-a-quarter companies. They have plenty of money of their own to invest.

    That said, what do you think happens to all the money the rich make?

    Capital gains are based on investments. So a lot of that money Romney isn't spending is sitting in investment portfolios, being utilized in a number of funds and fields.

    Aside from that, if he hadn't bought those houses then somebody else would have...or the land would have sat empty, or whatever. But those are multi-million dollar houses for the most part, which means a crap load of money was injected into the market in those 15 purchases. More money than you or I will inject in our lifetimes, I'm guessing. So who cares if the rest of us probably "only have one or zero"? I thought it was all about the economy, so any legitimate endeavor that benefits the economy should be lauded, right? I still think this entire thread is pointless.

But you didn't answer my question...would you define this President as successful?

    Look bush created teh huge prescription drug plan to protect big pharma who was under assault by all americans for their price gouging and it became common knowledge they were selling canadians the same drugs that we were paying 200-300-up to 700% more for and there was huge pressure to allow americans to buy drugs from canada....bush passed the drug program to protect them...and conveniently he put in that bill a clause that THE GOVT COULD NOT NEGOTIATE FOR CHEAPER PRICES for all intents had to accept whatever price big pharma demanded...but lets not stop there ok...humor me by answering a couple of questions for me...

    1. For every job outsourced where does that american who lost that job work.
    2. Has unemployment risen dramatically as outsourcing continued
    3. Where do you expect all those americans out of work to find work that pay enough to support the standard of living they had. Or to even make enough to meet their responsibilities.
    This last one is going to be the tough one..

    Do you deny that the Federal tax rate for the top 2% of the rich and corporations has been cut fully in half since 1982. Do you deny that the capitol gains and inheritance taxs have been cut deeply...

    If theres trickle down like all the conservatives keep telling america...why is it that while they were enjoying HUGE tax cuts and huge profits from outsourcing and they got fabulously richer and the middleclass not only got far smaller but their incomes stagnated and they lost pensions and health benefits..Companies said they could no longer afford them while making fabulous profits. The poor and working poor numbers have grown largely during the same period of SUPER prosperity for the top 2% and corporations.

    Now..The teaparty conservatives want me to believe...that its all my fault...Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are the VILLAINS that have cause all the malais this country has going on...the economy is in the tank because of medicare...were in debt because of medicare...and the only way to fix it...is to give vouchers which they KNOW WILL KILL MEDICARE and thats the purpose...raise the age and lower the amount of payout for social security...and of course give another HUGE TAX CUT to the top 2% which of course includes romney and ryan and all the corporations..so they can create uhhhh what?? more trickle down...
    Sorry Ksu...Im not buying any of it.....When the teaparty far right decides to sit down and work out some real compromises that shares the pain and makes reasonable and realistic cuts to entitlements. I dont want any TAX HIKES even on the rich...cut the loopholes that allow them to pay in many instances NOTHING and near nothing....romney wont show all his tax returns because he CANT...the rich would kill him for showing america just how little the rich really pay in percentages...the tax rate is MEANINGLESS they dont pay anywhere near it....its a big confidence game at working americas expense

    I hope they own a ****-ton of properties. They're wealthy. What's wrong with that?
