    Mitt Romney: "I want to encourage the kind of economic growth that President Obama has been unable to deliver!"
    :lmao:



    Let's face a fact here folks... Ass-U-Me-ing that either candidate actually gives a shit about adjusting the tax code toward favoring companies that create work in America instead of favoring of raw wealth accumulation like it currently does, the TRUTH to that statement would be that, if elected, Romney wants to sign legislation that Congress has been unable (unwilling) to deliver to any President since the corporate lobbyists began writing our legislation back in the 80's.


    The office of The President only has so much power in creating incentives in the American Marketplace.


    If you, the voter, want incentives and favoritism for companies and industries that create jobs here instead of overseas, your vote for President is meaningless, as both are emphatically stating that "Job creation in America is their number one goal". Instead, spend some time getting to know who's running for Congress and try to learn which lobbyists are paying for their re-elections. Either that or pick a Presidential Candidate and vote a single party ballot.

    There is a certain amount of truth to the concept that your hard-earned tax dollars spent on debate and legislation in Congress recently have been focused not on sending legislation to The President for signature that give incentives to companies that hire Americans, but instead have been spent on pointless political grand-standing because the lobbyists who hold their leashes LIKE the unemployment rate at 8%.

    :dunno: What's not to like? With unemployment at 8%, nobody whines to the boss and signing bonuses and other profit-killing incentives for employees are a thing of the past.

    Unfortunately the GOP just blocked any chance for someone to follow your advice. They obviously don't want you to know who OWNS them.

    GOP blocks campaign disclosure bill

    WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans have blocked Democratic-backed legislation requiring organizations pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into campaign ads to disclose their top donors and the amounts they spend.

    GOP opposition prevented Democrats from getting the 60 votes needed to bring what is known as the Disclose Act to the Senate floor. The vote Monday was 51-44.

    Democrats revived the act during a presidential election campaign in which political action committees and nonprofit organizations, funded by deep-pocketed and largely anonymous contributors, are dominating the airwaves with largely negative political ads.

    Another version of the Disclose Act passed the then-Democratic-controlled House in 2010 but was similarly blocked by Republicans in the Senate.

    "Perhaps Republicans want to shield the handful of billionaires willing to contribute nine figures to sway a close presidential election," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.). He said this election was in danger of being bought by "17 angry, old, white men."

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Says the 'angry, old, white man'...who has done WHAT with bills brough forth by the house?

    My guts tell me Reid brought this bill to a vote because he knew it would fail in an attempt to make the House look bad.

    FKN politicians! :lol::lol::lol:

    How dare Reid do something like that, does he not know only CON$ervoFascists are allowed to do that? CON$ervoFascists have 33 times slammed all House business to a grinding halt to accommodate another vote to repeal Obamacare. Again. Thirty-three times. Let's look at that, shall we? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33.

    It has been estimated this extended season of pure bullshit has taken up two cumulative weeks of business at a cost of $24 million a week. That's what it takes to keep the congressional gears oiled and moving. $50 million on legislation that the CON$ervoFascists know will never become law. But what did Turtle McConnell say about the Dems bringing up the disclosure law for only the second time in 2 years??? Senate Minority Leader Mitch The Turtle McConnell accused Democrats of wasting time on bills "they know won't pass."

    CON$ervoFascist hypocrites have no shame!!!!!!

    Ahhhhhhhh, yes! Transparency in all things politics...

    The third leg in building the frame-work for an economy that our kids can drive to the stars, and the dividing line between "Clever Apes" selfishly hording their bananas and a "Sentient World" driving its economy to the stars.

    Actually, among our well paid legislatures, BOTH sides of the political aisle share pretty much equally in the guilt of putting the needs and desires of big donors ahead of the needs and aspirations of the American Middle Class, with examples of shame and integrity also shared by both.

    If any correlation can be made between political party and selling favoritism to special interests, it's that while Democrats can be credited with inventing the game, it's the Republicans who have just about perfected the most cut-throat version of it.

    The fault for rewarding the winners lay at the feet of We, The Voters.

    So, if not 'We, The Voters', then who?


    Just because you do your job well sailor, doesn't mean you don't drown if the ship goes down. We're all in this together.






    Yay Team!​
