    Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting To Beat Obama

    We've already gotten glimpses of what these people want to do to the United States. Hopefully, this will be a wake up call to those who think voting for another plutocrat like Nooten Mittens. But then, I also thought the sight of two rich guys who like to fire people standing on the same stage was a nightmare made flesh.

    We need to invest in America and Americans - NOT in off shore banks and foreign countries.

    BTW, jobs are up again this month, economy growing, Dow and NASDAQ continue to grow - all in spite of the R's fighting and filibustering EVERY bill that would result in jobs and growth. Thank you Mr. President but think how much faster jobs would grow if the damned fascist R's weren't obstructing every jobs and growth bill.

    Meanwhile Obama boasts he will have a billion dollars to buy his way in, and I don't see you complaining at all.

    Wrong yet again.

    In several previous threads I have clearly stated that I think its wrong that our government is for sale. I have also made it clear that I despise the crooked and corrupt ScaliaRobertsAlitoThomas.

    Are you really saying that only the R's should be able to play by the rules the R's made?

    Really?

    And yet in this thread you are only whining ABOUT Republicans. Go figure.

    Statists travel on two way streets while insisting others only travel in one.

    Transparent as hell.

    The preponderance of our economic woes stem from the machinations of FDR....
    ...he was a Democrat liberal progressive.

    He declared 'rights' such as

    The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
    The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
    The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;
    The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
    The right of every family to a decent home;
    The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
    The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

    These, of course, are not rights, but entitlements, obligations of other folks to pay for.


    One can see the spread of this poison in the CRA, student loans, ObamaCare.

    Sad that you can't see the results: "We've already gotten glimpses of what these people want to do to the United States."

    None of which can be found anywhere in The Constitution.

    Republicans feel that since corporations make jobs, they should run the country.

    Conservatives believe in limited constitutional government, individualism, and the free market.


    Your turn, chubs.
