“If the Republicans would just offer a better alternative than the ACA, I'm sure they could get people on both sides behind that, but it seems they are just requesting that we return the the status quo of "go broke or die" that has become our healthcare system for the majority of Americans...

Give the American people a BETTER option or sit down and be quiet.”

“"All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."

"[M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives,"

If it wasn't malicious, it was horribly ineptly stupid.
If you work in this country... you shouldn't starve, go sick, or homeless or go hopelessly in debt for want of those things.
Romney then went on to blame them, dismiss them, and then ignore them.
That is what was wrong.

Google "working poor in America" if you still can't understand how you can be impoverished in our country and still be a hardworking decent person...”

“Well sounds like half of Americans are worthless wastes of space to Mr. Romney...

Seeing as a president should care about the whole of America, I don't think that's the right attitude for the job.”

“This is more a symptom of the actual problems in politics (money, party system, lobbying, etc), but she is right... that even if Obama wins he won't get much done.

Still better than the alternative that R&R seem to be offering, which seems to be economic, civil, and political abuses.

People need to stop rooting for just the red or blue team, and need to actually inform themselves on the individuals running.”

“She is right; he doesn't try to bring both sides together. His policies are fiscally irresponsible I am glad the republicans attempt to put a stop to them. You are right, people need to be informed.”

“I agree. But the choice is so clear this time. I would be willing to vote Republican if they had any solutions at all. But they clearly don't and they put up a person that I wouldn't follow out of a paper bag.”

“Fruits and vegetables should be freely available (within reason i.e. not abusive amount of fruit, and pretty much unlimited vegetables) above the calorie limit.

That being said, the healthier school food is a wonderful step forward, and a lot may gripe about it now, but soon that unhealthy food conditioning will wear off, and the kids will enjoy being healthier far more than that cheeseburger fries and shake.”

“The unions are worried about the workers... the nuts and bolts, the gears, the muscle, the elbow greasers... whatever you want to call them.

There is a legitimate need for the unions to keep people from being taken advantage of.

Are there problems with them? Sure... but fix the problems that require them to be in place in the first place, then the issues surrounding their mismanagement will be easily corrected.”

“Sad that someone would try to hurt someone's business because they don't believe the exact same political beliefs as you.

Even sadder that someone would try to e-thug their political beliefs on someone.”

“Come on this was a 100% photo op, this had to be set up ahead of time and with the Secret Services OK. With all the attempts on the Presidents life in the pass 50 years you think the Secret Service would let a man this size pick up the President without his permission.”

“This story needs more circumstantial analysis...

It sounds like at the moment, something totally blow out of proportion by the school, and to punish the kid who was assaulted, like he had been just as wrong as the kid did the assaulting... seems silly to me.

I will admit there are plenty of good reasons for schools to punish kids for their actions outside of school... this just doesn't seem like one of them.”

“I agree with your main ideal... Government would should not have a huge regulatory had in business. I however think there is an inherent problem of the the psychotic business model that is designed around profit at any means,,, and unlimited profit.

There are certain regulations that should be enforced and others that are unnecessary, the problems are getting those who actually know what they are doing to get involved in legislation and incorporation of those necessary and unnecessary ideals into action.”

heterodoxlibertarian on Sep 6, 2012 at 02:14:06

“There's definitely cases where the profit motive has negative consequences. I'm pro-capitalism but I don't think we should put profits over people. The best way to have a better corporate culture in that respect, though, is not through government but rather through persuasion. It's very hard to regulate compassion and balance into existence. With the financial system, regulations are so routinely ineffective because bankers are great at undermining and sidestepping them. If we simply eliminated what I like to call "the safety net for the rich"- which is what bailous are- and said "You can take big risks but prepared to loose big because we aren't going to rescue you" and combined that with the elimination of deposit insurance which leads to consumers failing to look into the type of risks banks are taking you'd see a more reasonable system emerge.  ”

“The elimination of ObamaCare alone will be like an economic dark cloud lifting. It will give rise to a strong rally in the markets, followed by a hiring spree such as hasn't been seen for decades. The market already senses this and goes up whenever Obama's poll numbers fall.”
