    Rand Paul was at a forum with Democratic opponent Jack Conway and Rand Paul said, while talking about America's poor, "They filmed a building in the poorer section of New York with some broken windows and they said, `Oh, this is how the poor in America lives,'" Paul said at last week's forum. "But it backfired on them because the Soviet citizens looked at that video closely and they saw flickering color television sets in all those windows."

    So,
    1, The poor in New York live with broken windows
    and
    2. Soviet citizens had color TVs.

    Kentucky has 29 out of the 100 poorest counties in the country and Rand Paul says they have it good. Could you imagine living on 9400 dollars a year? In this country? You know if you spent 5 dollars a day on food, you would have spent 20% of your income. That would be enough for a burger and a coke.

    Angle: Unemployed are "Spoiled"; It's not my job to fight for Nevadans' jobs. So what is the job of the senator?

    Apologies to BP, calling the unemployed names, don't feed the poor because like "animals", they'll "breed".

    Republican solutions are to cut taxes for the rich and deregulate.

    Everyone is assuming that Republicans could "sweep" the November election.

    I think Democrats have been collecting these "nuggets" one after another.

    If Republican candidates are "smart" and if they see a "debate" coming at anytime before the November elections, they will run like hell in the other direction.

    You can get more money from unemployment than a real job - did somebody actually say that? Ask Sharon.

    Hmmm. Let's think about this rationally.

    A partisan democrat telling Republicans how to win by telling us we shouldn't debate.

    What this tells me is you don't want to debate Republicans. Because you are going to tell us to do the exact opposite of what's good for us since you want us to lose.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!:lol::lol:

    You posted that at EXACTLY the time Chris Matthews was running that story in MSNBC!!! It was on in the restaurant I was in, and I saw the same story, about 650 pm, when you posted it! You douche bag!

    Matthews was saying it was hypocritical because if the Soviets had TV's to watch the propoganda on, then why were they upset American "poor" had TV's?? Well, the Soviets didn't watch it on TV's, they watched it in Soviet, government run theaters where the news was controlled!!!! You freakin' idiot!!!!

    Next, $9400 a year huh? Well, thats poor. Yes. BUT....factor in also, living at that:

    Section 8 Housing- free housing, or rent about $100 a month.
    Food stamps- enough food to eat comfortably on. $3600 a year
    Welfare/Unemployement- $6000-12000 year

    So, do the math, it would be about $20-25,000 a year in total income, with free or very reduced housing. Then factor in free government education in public schools, free healthcare through Medicare, Medicaid, or just showing up to ER for minor sickness and getting treated anyway, Social Security, etc, etc, etc.

    Then you see why our "poor" live better than 95% of the world. That argument you, and Chris Matthews make, is an argument made out of envy rather than need. Grow the fu** up and get your own material for a change. Or at least don't post Matthews story 5 minutes after he runs it.

    What Rand means when he says the poor have never had it so good is.... Nm, just listen to the 300 pound women in your first video talk about the hard life of being poor, I say listen because how could you see her through all that CHEAP CIGERET SMOKE!

    Hi, I'm poor...

    -I have more than enought to eat
    -I get to smoke and drink most days
    -I can move away from my shit town but I won't because I have a place to live
    -I get to bitch about not having a job but won't move to a town with a population bigger than my family
    -I get food stamps
    -I get Medicare/Medicaid

    Hold on 1 second I have to answer my cell phone....

    There was a time not so long ago being poor and not having a job meant you didn't eat or have a place to live.
