RZ- logic doesn't always play well here. Fae4 and others don't think the sun will rise with out Government regulation or subsidy.19 hours ago
Cerulean thinks everything has racist connotations. "Food stamps are a perfect way to support the economy from the bottom up." This is great logic, in that case, why not put everyone on foodstamps, then we could really get this economy humming- right? And MrB. Yes, that Government should put Walmart out of business- huh. Oh wait, then you will just have a huge bunch of low skill people with no job. I am sure the Government will be happy to pay for UnEmployment and give them foodstamps forever then. I mean the money for those things grows on trees- right?19 hours ago
Here is something else for our new friend LED, some how some way people actually survived without cell phones up until fairly recently. The point may be, that perhaps $50-$100 a month for a plan might be spent better elsewhere if you are truly in need.19 hours ago
That hit bone Chat. "Were you asleep during all those media reports about how Warren Buffet paid a lower percentage in taxes than his secretary?" this LED is a live one. Yes Warren Buffet make money on money he has already once paid taxes for and then invested and now pays capital gains on. These are simple concepts that are easily checked for those who truly learn every day. Am I also to assume that the call for more tax money from the wealthy is becuase the Government is such an efficient machine that has no waste to be removed? No answer needed.

I think the coupling of the IRS targeting conservative groups is what sent up the flags on the NSA tapping into phone traffic. Without it, people would be less alarmed. Suspecting that the Government is now slanted against certain people is what is causing the alarm. You understand that- right BP? Did the Bush administration focus on losers that didn't want to work and wanted someone else to pay their way ala Occupy?19 hours ago
Yes, with a name like Hurley, it is certainly OK to label something as terrorism. Mohammed or Azuuri or the like- not so much.......19 hours ago
Couldn't be Slab, aren't we told that illegals are just here to work, accept no benefits and do the jobs that no American would? Further, by his not guilty plea, I am sure we are to assume the victim was just confused about the whole incident. Surely the hatchet was just a landscapping implement and the kindly gentleman just noticed that the sleeping woman looked cold through her window and he was just attempting to pull up her sheets for her. Or that is what I am sure the shiester lawyer will have us believe.19 hours ago
And we all know how sane Michigan's financial situation is. Oh, except that largest city. Yes, no illegal immigrant gets any care for free and has the taxpayers pay for it. I encourage the Tribune to park themselves outside of several emergency rooms and see how many illegal immigrants come through those doors. People may get the right idea of who is paying for what for whom pretty quick. Or is boofant's point that illegal immigrants are paying all their medical costs in cash at regular family doctors? Come on, you don't even believe that.2 days ago
I will take these comments to mean that Democrat lying is better than anyone else's lying and should not reflect poorly on the liar. Unfortunatly, the rest of America doesn't like it when someone looks them in the eye and tells them something they know is not the truth. Not becuase it has some national security element, but becuase they are trying to protect themselves. Everyone has had someone in the past that lied to them and ultimately it was uncovered. Usually, you dismiss that person or at very least question any of their later statements. Doesn't that work for Presidents?2 days ago
I don't know what kind of father President Obama is, but I will assume he is doing his best for his family. You may recall when the President was just elected the first time, he spoke out about how men needed to be responsible for the children they produce and the woman they produce them with. Havn't heard anything since. Must have raised some flags with the wrong people. You know, they didn't want people to get the right idea. He should go back and pick up the mantle. he has a rare opportunity to make real "change".2 days ago
