Yes - the double standard reigns supreme. This has never been truer than today. I'm interested to see how they spin the effects of ObamaCare as the people (i.e. the Dems) REALLY start howling when the heavy-duty pickpocketing begins over the next few years. The president's approval rating drop is approaching 10%, so the bloom definitely appears to be off the reelection rose.
A friend of mine, who is divorcing a solider and has diabetes and high blood pressure, told me that she was turned down for health insurance.She was told she had to wait until 2014 when Obamacare goes into effect. The policy she wanted which costs $250 today, would likely cost $800 next year. That is not affordable health care.
I agree that we need to stick to the points of any debate and refrain from the labeling and name calling. It is counterproductive and you are not a demon just because you diagree with me.
Watched 'em all Funk. Well done. Looks like there is plenty of name-calling taking place on Both sides in them. I guess it all comes down to 'which' side you believe.
Anyone who trusts MSNBC heehaw as their main source for the logical debates based on facts logic, need to look elsewhere. At least that lady took responsibility for her actions which were stupid IMHO. However this lady doesn’t think she committed a crime, what happened to Sharpton on that one?
How about supporting right and wrong, instead of political ideology.
This paragraph is the beginning of my last posting.
Toure also said that Republicans are trying to suppress voters when they are actual trying to minimize or stop voter fraud like these examples from both sides. Mr. PoliticsNation is living in the twilight zone because he believes it’s only committed by Republicans.
It's the game, Funky. The Dem "war room" folks know that they can buy votes by pumping up the welfare and food stamp rolls. They also know those people will invariably feel beholding to them because they have painted the Republicans as the party who wants them to starve and die. They reinforce their campaign with the contention that ENFORCING THE LAW (i.e., standing up for the concept that ONLY LEGAL VOTES SHOULD BE CAST) is somehow "voter suppression." It might be voter suppression all right: suppression of illegal votes that the Dems might otherwise get if the "vote watchers" aren't on their toes and if the GOP just gives up on the issue.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Only registered, legal voters should be permitted to vote. Illegals and the deceased are ineligible. Period.
Dr Carson's response "Well if you don't have anything useful to say then you attack people"
Each time I see him speak I'm further impressed with him.
I think I heard it reported that he is retiring from his medical practice.
He would make a wonderful President and I don't care which party he might choose I'd vote for him.
Thanks, for your individual comments, sebekm, up2, JimmyMack, and TOT. PoliticsNation, since you are an MSNBC advocate, WRU?
I’d like to meet Toure in person and tell him that since retiring from the USA, I’ve earned two promotions in 9 years of work in the private sector and that my salary has risen 101.5% from March, 2004 through March, 2013 with a promotion in 2008 and another in 2011. And yes I did it with the hard work, dedication, skill and fruit of my labor. And I’m preparing for another by 2016. I’m not a part of the Top 1% either.
It all goes back to being willing to work for want you want in life. Military retirees are attractive to employers because we do not have to be babysat and realize that the copier not working is the end of the world. If you want a better life, work for it, don't ask me to further subsidize those who think it should be given to them. For those the Pi$$ and moan about those having a military retirement, get over it. You could have served your country for 20+ years and earned it. Ironically most military retirees continue to work hard to provide better for their Families as things are pretty slim while you are on active duty. The USA was once considered the Land of Opportunity and that you could achieve your dreams if you were willing to work for it. What has happened is when FDR's administration implemented a program to help Americans get back on their feet; we found out it was much easier to claim to be destitute and live off the government dime. 60 years later and we still feel the same way. GET A JOB!
"Get A JOB"
Anybody employers hiring in Hinesville with a decent starting salary that a family member could effectively make ends meet?
Right here; however is the family member willing to take a risk for success to make ends meet?
And there even more job postings here, if you are willing to make the sacrifices to succeed you will have to be flexible and change with the times as you have said and work outside of Hinesville.
"Right here; however is the family member willing to take a risk for success to make ends meet?"
Are you willing to gamble with your life and lively hood in addition, include your family members along with it?
