“And why should anyone now believe the comments from the white house?? This cadre of academicians who've never run anything more than a lemonade stand as kids , now believe they know better how to run 17% of the economy than those who actually do it for a living. THEY know better than you.”

“Anyone can run healthcare insurance better than for-profit companies, which have high overheads, deny people with pre-existing conditions insurance, and have left over 30 million poor Americans without insurance.
Medicare, a massive government program, seems to work very well. As a retired Army officer, with a combat related disability from Vietnam service, I am exceeding pleased with the healthcare I am provided by the VA.
Social Security also works well.
Government serves us well and would be even better if Republicans got with the program instead of wasting time and money voting over 40 times to repeal Obamacare, which is the law of the land, as confirmed by the Supreme Court.”
“Lets not kid ourselves.... Dirty laundry and baggage is THE one thing that both sides of the house and senate can be said to have in abundance One doesn't rise to those positions without it ... as well as most of those who occupy the oval office”

“Let's not kid ourselves, the Repu/kelicans have outdone themselves on that regard.”
“What's any different with liberals??... They criticize what the don't know anything about, refuse to listen, and call names. -just like the people they delight in pointing fingers at. Can you spell the word ... HYPOCRISY ???”

“Criticizing with facts is different then criticizing with made up News Corp talking points. If you get your information from one location, then accuse others of being ill informed, or brainwashed, because they get their information from multiple media sources, the question is, can YOU spell the word Hypocrisy. Sorry, I believe in facts, and growing up in the CON bubble, then being forced out of it via real life experiences in multiple countries, I have come to realize that any attempt to equalize the right and left in this regard is just ridiculous. Also, its one thing to disagree with a President because of a difference in ideology, however, its another thing to blow a gasket over a policy said president sourced from one of your own think tanks... At that point, its not about the policy, its about the man. My disagreement with the Bush Administration was based on an actual disagreement with his policies, as they were NEVER in line with my ideology, and they cost me 14 months in the desert and then some... The same can not be said about the baggers and their extreme hatred for this man cause he gave them their own idea from their own freaking think tank.
“If this last 10 days of wrangling so placed the economy in such grave peril... what does that say about the strength of the economy and the so called recovery???
Oh wait !!.... Just send ol addlebrained Joe B. out to hand out donuts and hot dogs and tell every one this is "Recovery Summer version 2.0"”
“That was merely to give the suggestion and appearance of doing something... nothing substantive has or will ever come out of that. Until Obama gives up and finally jettisons some of his advisors and their flawed thinking, things won't change. People who have never been outside the faculty lounge, or have never been in the private sector ... trying to advise the president what to do with a sluggish ( at best) economy is tantamount to receiving piano lessons from an instructor who can neither read music nor play themselves.”
“Looking at the abysmal so called, "recovery" and the "recovery summer" I would say that is exactly right ..because regardless of the money the government spends... the unemployment rate still hovers between 7.5-8.0%. The government obtains precious little for all the cash infusion by the fed.
I think senator Obama once called the debt and deficit spending a lack of leadership and irresponsible. Hmmm? ... My my... how did we end up with a president with such a short memory and such wonderfully "firm" convictions.”
“The same could be said for the dems too.... that is unless your definition of a jobs bill was the 800 billion stimulus for all those " shovel ready jobs" or giving money to companies involved in making energy equipment that after receiving money then follow up by filing bankruptcy..... hysterical laughter”
“Ha ha.... this women is a complete cipher.... I wonder if she thinks we need to pass it to find our what's in it?
It's people like her that have caused so many to have so low an opinion of our elected officials in general. She would have trouble organizing a 2 car funeral procession. The overall quality of elected officials like her is so poor these days.”
“If that is the case then why isn't business booming with all the relaxing of the regs??”
stciappelletto on Oct 14, 2013 at 14:45:11
“Because relaxing of regulations has little to nothing to do with it. Businesses need customers. Destroy the middle class and reduce support for the poor and you take away a huge chunk of the customer base for most of the businesses that drive our economy.”

“Several reasons: reduction of exports to primarily Europe because their economies are dong worse; effect of sequester which most economist say is taking at least 0.5 if not 1.0% off economic growth and Americans are still so underpaid that they cannot purchase as much as they used to: lack of demand for products.”
“... would you guess those incidents in the bible are actually advocating that life style??”
freedomwerks on Sep 23, 2013 at 13:31:55
“well seeing as there are all sorts of rules that include killing, unlawful detention, and misogyny yes they do advocate that lifestyle. Furthermore, the idol of said religion is regularly pictured being tortured as a mark of love so there is something going on there for sure. Certainly jesus advocates hanging out with drunks and hookers”
“you bet why should we deny them freedom? after all what can they do?? they can get behind the wheel of a car and kill someone when high or some other nonviolent thing,
OR perhaps prostitute themselves for money to feed their addiction and spread disease”

“driving intoxicated is a seperate crime yes illegal should be. prostitution won't affect you if you aren't buying if you are that's the chance you take”
