Re: The Vegas debate.

+1. Here is a nice vid for you to watch if you give a damn about the truth. There's no need to resort to profanity, this isn't the U.S. Senate :D That's a nice 1:22 video of Mitch McConnell blathering on for 1:15 about how he agrees with President Obama ( :roll: ), thanks. My compliments to the guy...

Re: Are profits evil? Are corporations greedy?

You are without a doubt one of the rudest people on this board. Thanks for that. As most of us know, your opinion on such matters is the gold standard here. What is Al generalizing about? That all or even most of the protesters think that "profits are evil" and that "corporations are greedy". What ...

Re: The Vegas debate.

:ROFL: Talk about not understanding.. If Reid changed his vote to "NO". he effectively blocked it. When Reid understood that he wasn't gonna get his pride and joy passed he killed it.. Any discussion would make him, and the Obama administration, look stupid trying to explain how they were gonna pay...

Re: Are profits evil? Are corporations greedy?

Are profits evil? Are corporations greedy? Do you agree with the people in the park? Thoughts anyone.. My thoughts: 1. You shouldn't generalize so much. 2. If you went into the park and actually talked to some of those people instead of lapping up what you are being spoonfed, you might actually lea...

Re: The Vegas debate.

The Republicans wanted to bring it up for a vote, the Democrats killed it. That is the totality of the life of the jobs bill in the senate. Totally WRONG. Where do you get this stuff? Do you live in DNAL SDRAWKCAB? If the Republicans wanted to bring it up for a vote, why did every one of them vote ...

Re: The Vegas debate.

Harry Reid would not bring it up for debate. Seems like he has the control here. The only reason that would make Harry Reid not bring up a bill is because he didn'ty have enough votes to pass it. Seems there's quite a few democrats worried about getting re=elected. Wouldn't look too good if he had ...

Re: What has Obama done thats good for America??

:ROFL: I suppose you kinda forgot already.. When Obama first started to run he called himself "A White man who just happened to have a Black father." When he found out "Black" had legs he called himself "A Black man who just happened to have a White mother." The young lad seems to be as confused ab...

Re: Wall Street Protest Digs In, Spreads

So when it comes to bailing out Wall Street (or making sure the CME traders continue to make money), it is OK, but when it comes to a bailout to the middle class - forget-about-it. I think those Wall Street protesters are angry about that. Personally, my gripe is the transfer of wealth from the mid...

Re: Wall Street Protest Digs In, Spreads

I think there are a few reasons why it is happening now. I don't think it started in the U.S.. Mayor Bloomberg warned that it might come here just a couple weeks before it did. Also, I think a lot of people didn't realize how long the recession would last (although technically we entered a "recover...

Re: Wall Street Protest Digs In, Spreads

This is the difference between OWS and the Tea Party. While there are common interests between them, OWS is concern over not getting a bailout for yourself, the Tea Party concern is that bailouts are bringing the whole house down. The focus should be on the government and what its role in our socie...

Re: What has Obama done thats good for America??

I posted several news links that noted how the Obama admin was inflating jobs numbers which directly questions the claims of those 3.3 million jobs created in the second quarter of 2010. How is that throwing in the towel? As far as I'm concerned, I smashed the credibility of the claim of 3.3 millio...

Re: Wall Street Protest Digs In, Spreads

If they don't like it here, they're free to leave. I'm sure they can go to another country that opens the door to illegal immigrants, giving them a free education, access to social programs and automatic citizenship for any kids they squirt out... oh... wait, we're the only ones that do that?

Re: Wall Street Protest Digs In, Spreads

The promise they are referring to is the promise of the American dream. I'm not sure how you missed that. We are all told from a very early age that if we work hard, get an education and stay out of trouble then we too can buy a house and live the "American Dream". Well ... for an increasing number...
