“Immature? Immature and sad is studs going into a forum and thinking everyone shares their views. I dont openly promulgate an affection or anyone. Sounded like a room of Rosie Odonnells grunting and groaning.. I dont care what you do. I dont want to hear it or see it though.”
“I've eaten here in the past and while the Cathy family is entitled to their beliefs, I am entitled to mine and will never go here again. I haven't been in at least 7 years, but I remember the chicken tasting almost like chemicals. It was very faint, but it was there. Maybe it was just the one I went to. Either way, if the company won't support equality, then I won't support them and I feel as though this could hurt them in the Northeast and on the West Coast especially.”
“I'm FROM MA. Don't try to tell me Romney was here creating jobs for us. If you look at his NET job creation, meaning jobs he created in ADDITION to the jobs he took away, you'd see that he did not do such a good job. I'll take Obama over Romney any day in terms of Middle class protection. Sure, Obama isn't doing exactly the job I had hoped he'd do, but I don't think Romney even knows what the middle class IS.”
“So, he made a few million from them. He's raking in the MILLIONS from corporations. And get your facts straight. With the medicaid expansion, nearly all Americans will be covered by health insurance, and those who aren't covered under medicaid more often than not, have insurance through their employers. The penalty affects mainly the rich, who don't HAVE health insurance, so THEY are the ones sending Mittens the millions. Open your eyes. Stop pretending Romney will do anything good for the middle class. If you've looked at his track record at all, you'd see he cares only for those who can help him line his pockets. Good day, sir.”

“Let's do get our "facts" straight afreit. MANY cash strapped states are opting out of the medicaid expansion under the new health care law. They simply can not afford another entitlement program. Cities are going bankrupt as it is. The "penalty" will affect everyone - everyone. If you are over 26 and off your parents health plan you will have to buy health insurance. Most people in that group earn under $120,000 a year. Open your eyes.. Stop pretending that Obama and his administration will not make the middle class pay a tax to implement this health care law. How do you think it will be paid for? Printing money? I have looked at Romney's record - it is FAR better than Obama's at creating jobs. Did you hear that the manufacturing rate is DOWN. AND that the jobs number on Friday will be down as well. Summer of Recovery AGAIN - NOT.”
“Not sure how true this article actually is. I don't think the young voters in NC are going to throw the election to the point that without their support, Obama will lose. Plenty of young people are still excited about Obama, myself among them. Maybe it's because I'm from MA, but either way, I think more young people will support socially progressive Obama over Romney.”

“Obama is not going to win NC anyway, so who cares?
FL, VA, OH, PA, WI, CO, NV, NH - these are the states to watch.
The youth vote may not matter this time, either. Moderates and Independents (read: underwater mortgage debtors) are the ones who decide this election. They vote their own finances.”
“If you think he's not in this race for money or power, you have been misled. Romney is a rich man trying to buy the presidency so he and his corporate friends can play with it, with no understanding of the position itself. And I'd hardly compare JFK to Romney. Maybe they were born into similar circumstances, but their convictions will never be the same.”

“How you do know what their convictions are and were? It was said at the time that Joe Kennedy "bought" the presidency for his son. Many in the South thought the Catholic church was "buying" the presidency. Please - I'm not concerned about a person's religion unless it involves Sharia Law. I think it is hysteria and misunderstanding about the Mormon religion that alarms some people. Every Morman I have ever known has been kind, industrious and wonderful neighbors. Don't worry.
Romney doesn't have to "buy the presidency" with his money. He is raking in millions from people who understand that this new "penalty" for not buying health insurance, which will be levied on Americans will hit those making under $120,000 squarely on the back. A very BIG burden for the very middle class. ”
“No, it does not, but it's still pretty prevalent. Along with heart disease, diabetes, alzheimer's and many other diseases. My point is, you can save, but unless you're the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, you won't have enough to pay for all of your healthcare costs out of pocket.”
“Alright, let me know when you save up $1 million. In case you didn't know, diseases like cancer routinely run into millions of dollars in terms of the costs associated with it, from treatment to hospital stays and more.”

“Yes, and cancer doesn't hit everyone, yet according to you, everyone should save millions in case they get one of those rare cases of cancer or a disease. Great way to think!”
