“The GOP's selective and phony outrage is simply disgusting, if the soldier's health continued to get worse, then Rogers would have a press conference complaining the government isn't doing enough....it is all for show anymore with the republicans now, nothing of any substance. Kudos to the American government for all the hard work and getting this soldier released.”

“I think Cheney is upset that President Obama is not manipulated into unneeded wars like the way GW Bush; like many of the GOP wanted Obama to send troops to Syria and Iran....turns out President Obama's diplomacy plan worked; maybe it could have worked in Iraq”

“as I said before, take an economics course and take a reality course....you are just babbling stuff that may politically sound good to your ear; but your posts do not deal with the reality of America's problems; you apparently support the exact same policies that got America into our deficit problem to begin with...and also I say, look at Kansas, they got draconian tax cuts and now their state economy is in a shambles with their credit ratings that keep going down.”

Lemmiwinks99 on May 29, 2014 at 22:00:15

“My posts are covered in econ 101. Cutting taxes cannot possibly cause deficits because they do not reduce the money in the coffers, nor do they necessarily reduce revenues. Basic econ and history will show you this.”

Lemmiwinks99 on May 29, 2014 at 20:05:59

“Tax breaks do not take money out of the coffers and therefore do not need to be paid for. That is like saying I need to account for price cuts as losses for my business.”

“I posted this statement before....but in my opinion, the Koch Brothers and their political allies do not think American families as human beings; they think of us as disposable commodities. They don't care how the policies they want ( and the campaigns they fund to get what they want ) hurt American families with loss of jobs, loss of decent wages, loss of health care, etc. All they care about is power and the dollar signs in their eyes.”

“The tea party complains Obama does not follow the constitution; from what I've seen, those who were pressed for an answer on how, they either give some phony and empty political rhetoric, or they show that they, themselves, do not know the constitution. The tea party is just full of empty rhetoric and phony conspiracy theories that sound so good; they give blind trust to it”

mightymac63 on May 16, 2014 at 18:49:15

“The Tea Party only care about the First and Second Amendment's. They don't care about the rest. But then do they REALLY understand the Constitution?”

“Conservatives know the Constitution, Rick.

They use portions of it everytime they run out of toilet paper, and pages from the Bible.”

“but most of those countries did the exact same thing, (trickle down economics), the United States did to start; and most republicans here campaigned for austerity, job cuts, health care cuts and education cuts, .extreme tax breaks for the wealthy and corps; and the problem was in Europe, the lack of economic stimulation was much greater price to pay than the lack of revenue and investments in their country....most Americans were smart enough not to go for the austerity the republicans want.”
