“So, what were the issues? All I got was "she talked he talked, oh my! He talked." Social security. What were the issues?, please?”

“The issue is chained CPI indexes for Social Security annual increases. Sen Warren is suggesting the CPI-E (E = elderly) be used for adjustments because it is a more accurate representation of what Seniors actually pay than is CPI-W (W = Worker). Why we use the CPI index for actively employed younger people instead of CPI-E which is the basket of goods & services Seniors are most likely to pay for has always been a bit of a puzzle. You can find better (probably better) explanations by going to the top of the page and entering the words Warren Expand Social Security in the search box.”

“My hat is off to you on this one, Mr. Gingrich. I remember feeling bad about
Mr. Mandela, back then, especially after the rhetoric. I wasn't shallow, I was uninformed. Gradually I changed. So did he.
I remember Reagan, not my favorite person, but better than these vultures that are attacking you.

Some people are so fixed on strange ideas, I am surprised they breath.
They don't work, they don't climb, they tear down and they bite.”

“....it isn't even THAT distressing. Business income tax is only 1.4% of GDP now but used to be 5-8% of GDP.

Personal income tax is STILL at 8%. Does that mean we're paying for businesses? Where's our pay? Where's our jobs?”

“Cute nc! Cute! Simple! Cute! That comment is what happens to people who
1. are mean or
2. People who don't think too deeply.

The problem is mean people that are targeting Americans are having simple people repeat their lines about voting.

It is like a company I worked for. They gave us garbage bags to use because they didn't want to install toilets or maintain them ANYWHERE...even against a court order....two court orders.

To them it was simple. To you voting rights are simple.”

“I might have been to harsh. Name three good things Romney proposed. Remember to put the dates. He changed his stuff so often...ok..ONE thing, name ONE good thing.

AND you do know that the "free stuff" line was from a mid 1800's dig against Democracy by a Scottish Royalist Judge, don't you?

Your pro Democracy candidate...and tea partliers...and you... voice the lines of a King loving Brit wanting the demise of our Democracy.

I know you may possibly not think that way...you just talked that way.”

“He is the son of a rich man, growing richer each day, and with an attitude that tries to convince the public that he is a generous man. He is wrong in thinking that he was unable to speak openly and effectively to minorities. I think they heard him very clearly and stayed away from him in droves. Let's face it, he likes being a very rich Mormon, skirting US laws to strip companies and has absolutely no interest in helping women, African Americans, or other minorities. Hopefully his loss will prevent any of his five cloned sons from entering politics. Nice of him to rob Italy.....like they are such a rich country that they can afford his antics.”

“I don't agree necessarily, but this Republican ridiculing of public teachers, all government and all education is for the birds.
There is work to be done and great teaching that has happened in ALL schools but giving away the money to profiteers is not going to get it.”

“Private schools perpetuate the us and them mentality of the haves and the have nots.  I personally would eliminate parochial schools as well.  After school religion is fine, but allowing them to indoctrinate inb school is not.”

“Um, welllll...home of the KKK, this education malarky, Dan Quail, public projects costing millions after completely stopping and falling apart every quarter because of your balanced budget amendment quarter year assessments, is your State Legislature still part time?...those things really hurt your state's image. You have improved over the past ten years financially but really, Indiana is often mistaken to be between Mississippi and Georgia on the map. I often wonder when I don't drop onto dirt roads every time I enter Indiana from Illinois, Michigan or Ohio. OH! I love all the minibikes parked outside the bars at night! (last I saw, drunk drivers can't drive cars but can ride minibikes and motorized bicycles in Indiana after being arrested.)”

“Home of the KKK? Sure it was founded here, but to say its the home is absurd-Obama won IN in 08, doubt that would happen in the "home of the KKK." Anyone that would suggest IN is in between GA and MS needs to question their own education, thats just silly and poor map reading skills. "I often wonder when I don't drop onto dirt roads every time I enter Indiana from Illinois, Michigan or Ohio" What do you wonder, Vince? I'm not sure that's a complete sentence...I'd imagine you wonder plenty. You know that Michigan, Ohio and Illinois all have dirt roads too...like most every state in the country. "this education is malarky." what education? The one that ranked well here http://www.cnbc.com/id/100016697 or the fact that Indiana is home to 3 of the top 30 universities in the country? I'm sure that doesnt matter though...its the mini bikes parked outside bars that counts. Gotcha. (we call them 'mopeds' though-dont need a DL to drive one-that way people can still get to work and stuff if they get popped for a DUI) Oh, right, Dan "Quail"-yeah, i can't help that one, BUUUT, if you want to point out that makes us stupid, you should probably spell it correctly-it's Dan Quayle-afterall, he was a Vice President, its handy to know those things.”

“Yeah, about your Bible comment, in many countries if you didn't have one, you would DIE!
In the similar theme, Mao Tse Tung's Little Red Book also had about 6 billion published.
The Red Book is regarded as a tie with the number of Bibles so therefore it is a myth about the Bible outselling all other books combined.

Many Bibles were given away...so were L Ron Hubbard's books though...he did it as a sales ploy

I think there could be a category "most published" distinguished from "best selling".

While some people DO like the Bible, being forced does not mean being popular in the appreciated, desired nor respected sense of the word.”

“Look up EMPLOYMENT Ratio. It is HARD to find because UN-employment comes up in search engines.

West Virginia has the lowest at 52%. They got down to 47% in this recession.

During Reagan in '83, it was 42% average for the year.

Most States are at 60 to 65% right now with one at 72%.”
