“This is a pipeline of money, not oil. As Americans, we don't have to agree to participate in such a poorly conceived and risky business plan. Why is the State Dept outsourcing Environmental Impact studies? It then goes on to award the critical work to a UK (City of London) company with deep ties to the oil and gas industry well known for its history of work with BP in helping them clear pipeline roadblocks around the world.”
“Can't even get insured in my State of Georgia unless we want to pay half of our salary to an insurance company. We make so little income but work many hours. There's no Medicaid expansion here and so we continue to go without insurance. Like Allstate's "Mayhem", we will cause some serious taxpayer spending when we get sick and go to the emergency room. Meanwhile the people that cook for you, serve you, clean you and wipe your butt go without health insurance and can't afford to go to the doctor.”

“Talk to your Republican Governor. Him and the Republican legislature in Georgia are the one's how didn't want to expand medicare or set up the exchange in their state.”

“Well vote and help get out the Democratic vote
You guys surely have the numbers, too many just sit home”

“You can move to a state that expanded medicaid if you are unhealthy.”
“So glad government doesn't get involved in vital resources like the military - government does a great job not thinking about profit margins and shareholders...I want these kids and adults going back to school (like the GI Bill) and becoming productive, not paying huge bills to banksters. And if everyone's in STEM Education, our corporations are giving those jobs to other countries and visa holders anyway...”
“Buffet is not running to be President of all the Americans. Romney's hourly take is larger than the President's annual take. And how much in taxes and percentage did the President pay back to America vs. Romney? How ironic that you ignore the facts to try to take a cheap shot.”
“(IR)Responsible gun owners - what percentage of gun incidents are from criminals and what percent are from responsible gun owners with irresponsible and unsafe habits? And how will greater access to guns with no background checks and family pass downs help this percentage?”

“We don't need more restrictions.
We do need BETTER education of firearms-before possesion.
We don't need politics getting involved-that's nothing but trouble.
We do need people getting involved in their own freedoms this is only one of them.
We do need stronger consequences for wrongful choices with a weapon- not to message a perpective, but to warn others.”

“I've never met a gun owner that didn't consider himself a responsible gun owner and yet there are thousands of accidents every year.”

“For your intellectual expansion there are no states that I know of that do not do background checks when purchasing a firearm.”
“His position is not sustainable. His conservatism is in question - signals he's for reckless spending, not conservative and sustainable capitalism. He acts on the request of a few, uninformed tea partiers? We're not in Kansas anymore...this is an HNL of cronyism”
“Welch is the poster child for why this country is in this deflated economic condition. Interesting that he blames the man who inherited his wonderful leadership tactics - he accomplished very little, other than to amass a fortune on his worker's backs. Welch's leadership books are helping out my garden at the moment - makes great fertilizer.”
“Heidi has an A rating from the NRA gun and ammunition lobbyists. This means she sought out endorsement and answered yes to more guns in more places, no restrictions on gun types/magazine sizes, no checks at secondary gun sales, no restrictions on those with mental issues, and to help the NRA in its lobbying efforts and regulation stances. She's way too extreme for most Americans.”
“The war on Christmas continues with gun shows in every community this Christmas. Give the gift that keeps on killing. The NRA is a lobby organization for selling more guns (of any kind) and any ammunition. They have ceased being about safety, 2nd amendment, and protection. While they try to shift the blame on violence to other industries and to call for more guns in more places - Lapierre and gun businesses have lost their way. Do you know what it takes to get an A ranking from the NRA? You commit to supporting the NRA in putting more guns in more places, to not limit sales of any kind of weapon or ammunition, to arm the populace as well or better than public safety officers, to allow gun registration to go unchecked for those with mental issues or those who buy second-hand, to let Georgia continue to be an unchecked, unlimited gun shop for other States....to name a few. The silence of Republicans who hide behind the 2nd Amendment on this while calling for the proliferation of guns is shameless. Yes, guns don't kill people, but people who solve problems with guns who have increased access to guns do kill people.”
