“When money and individual benefits supersede HUMANITY and the agreed laws of humanity, than there is no need for us to call ourselves HUMANS......Should I care about losses of MasterCard and VISA or should I care about UKRAINE and Ukrainians and the people of the world???. Well I tell you what, I do not care about the losses of MasterCard or Visa billions.....I care about people, their rights, sovereign nations and respected borders ....I do not want to see another BULLY or insecure Russian leader who wants be a TSAR and paint the planet in RED with blood in the world.....Darn them”

“Sorry, but you are totally brainwashing by mass media, who made 69% of Americans believe that Saddam had WMD and did 9/11 -- they knowingly manipulated the news under DepOfState guidance then, and they continue to do so ever since.
DepOfState neocon maniacs are responsible for crisis in Ukraine with co-managing bloody coup d'etat there in attempt to annex whole country into EU and NATO (not immediately, but inevitably). Since it is cynical political game their used corrupt criminal clan of oligarchs Poroshenko and Kolomoysky to manipulate part of people into believing that their oligarchy is better than oligarchy of Akhmetov/Yanukovich, and they used neo-Nazi's as instrument of the coup. Now Kiev's junta has neo-Nazis in control of all but one force-related ministries -- and all of this only with minority of people supporting pro-Western route.
There is no way Russia would leave Russian speakers at mercy of such junta. Crimeans now are even more happy that they have reunited with their homeland, after being illegally (even by USSR laws) attributed to Ukraine against their will in 1954: Russia completely protected them from neo-Nazis coming and killing them like in Odessa massacre or in Mariupol or in Krasnoarmeysk today.
If anything, USA have to be sanctioned, and Russia praised for true peacekeeping, humanitarian role -- by the way, fully legal as there is official intergovernmental request from President Yanukovich (who was never impeached) to act against junta.”
“Rubio did finish IVY league school they say....and he said that "he does not believe humans are causing the climate change" wow....this man is an educated man ....and he DENIES the SCIENTIFIC PROOF's CLIMATE CHANGE.....I guess Floridian will have to change this guy....what a absurd statement coming from GOP and TP yoyo's....Enough already......”
“I appreciate the headline of the article....I thought " we the people" were protected by the SCOTUS who was able to interpret the US constitution without siding with any party....Republican or Democrat....now.....well....When I heard that the few papers I put together and gave it a name to do business has more rights then I have.....It makes me wonder.....”
“Approximately 170 days later we hopefully will not hear this illogical logic or comments of a .......hopefully she will be out of our lives, TV screens, media & social media columns and hopefully she will be on continuous vacation in Switzerland”
“When U saw the headline I asked myself.....What is the purpose of it now? Who and why it is out again? GOP....TP.....SPAC....PAC.....Zillionaires......She was an adult.....and she made almost 30 million at that time they say(?).. really what is the goal here?......It is not going to change my presidential vote....so why?????”
“Listen to yourself before you disburse accusations. I can tell you directly 1- Government does not screw over large majority of middle class, 2- Government tries to help Middle class but REPUBLICAN's try to stop all the good legislation that will benefit the masses..3- This is USA, therefore there are no" class difference like in INDIA"...it is great that you were born here and paid taxes since age 13 ...by the way I have news for you...You are not alone or special....there are hundred's of millions of us and we are all AMERICAN's. I am sure somewhere in your past you were a part of an Immigrant....so, let us ALL enjoy working, living and earning (a living wage) and paying our share .....OK?”

“ACA screws over a large majority of the middle class. Per the WH, 93 million individuals stand to lose their employer provided insurance when the mandate kicks in (right after the election. convenient, eh?). Those who lose their plan will be forced onto more expensive, lower quality plans. THAT screws over the middle class.
With the policy focus on giving more free stuff to the poor, middle class workers will be forced to pay more in taxes. That screws over the middle class.
Excessive debt screws over the middle class as they and their kids are the ones who have to pay it back.
Excessive and expensive regulations making it hard to start or operate small businesses screw over the middle class. But liberals don't think about them when they pass legislature trying to screw over large corporations.”
“There is saying ...a global one...."when you kill one human you kill the humanity, when you save one human you save the HUMANITY" 97 % ..you are concerned with and it seems you can sacrifice the remaining 3%.....for what???? . for lousy $2 or $3 dollar raise on hourly rate????..Your reasoning on the minimum wage is beyond belief as well as rest of the issues...stop listening to FAUX news and red PAC's & SPAC's ...by the way let's not forget...We are all immigrants un this country (unless you are a member of the so called "Indian nation" and "were illegal once".”

“So you're ok with the gov't screwing over the large majority of the middle class all in the name of possibly helping a few people down at the bottom? The way I see it, helping the middle class will help rise up the lower classes. The more disposable income the middle class has, the more they spend it on industries that rely on lower wage jobs. When those lower class jobs are in higher demand, those employees can demand better wages. I hardly call that sacrificing the bottom 3%.
Saying that $2-3 extra dollars an hour per employee is a measly sum shows that you have little to no experience with small businesses.
I've never watched fox news or any other news media.
And no, I'm not an immigrant. I'm a born and bred US citizen. I've paid payroll and income taxes since I started working at 13 and therefore earned the right to enjoy certain benefits that those tax dollars have paid for. Illegal immigrants, while deserving of humane treatment, have not earned the right to enjoy those same benefits that come with being a US citizen.”
“Are you calling names to Democrat's in this blessed land of ours? When it comes to "Programmed" issue you should look red states to see the realty. Do not forger R's are only 42 % of the nations VOTERS....only 42 %”
“9 Million people you are talking about.....9 million AMERICAN's and plus the non-documented millions,....dishwashers, stewards, sous chefs in your kitchen and other kitchens....This 9 million people make average of 14,862 USD per YEAR....They pay for rent, transportation, food, clothing (?), health costs(?)...and you think that only liberals are emotional about the economical impact ? you've got to be kidding...Think as a human without any self centered eye....perhaps then you will see the light...and if you cannot do that then think the way logic dictates and "economies of Scale" applies.......”

“Again, when considered in the aggregate, yes, it is a very small portion taking up all of the policy focus. Because while our gov't is bickering over what to do or not do for the bottom 2.8% of the work force or top 1% of the population, the other 97% of the country is ignored and is sinking thanks to burdens like expanded medicaid, ACA, etc. So when you tell me to think as a human, yes, I am far more concerned with the 97% than the top or bottom fraction. Meanwhile liberals focus only on one extreme or the other thinking they are doing good.
Sidenote, undocumented/illegals should not enjoy the benefit of policies paid for with US tax dollars.”
“On November 2014 elections,Senate Republicans and the House Republicans will be remembered by those people whose working wages are affected through their PATHETIC decision....all the fancy footwork of Gerrymandering in Districts and manipulating Voting rights will not matter.... Never in my life did I see such a pathetic partisanship and "in your face" negative politics.”

“2.8% of the total work force makes minimum wage. Why do they get all of the policy focus? It's because liberals know that their emotional base will get all gooey inside thinking they've made the world a better place.”
“Jack, you are retired now. We know about the corporations very well....the ones who sweat, bleed and cry are the owners (private) of little/small businesses not your GE, GM, FORD, HP , CITIBANK, BANK of AMERICA and others....You should stop worrying about them. Worry about the people who buy their products and try to pay for the products under these employment conditions ( those products of AMERICAN CORPORATIONS are mostly made in CHINA...ooh yeah GE builds it products in CHINA, FRANCE and elsewhere as well, no?) Actually what I am trying to say is enjoy the life ...enjoy your family ...try to give more to charity....you cannot take it with you...so, .relax Jack relax”
“I am ashamed to see these graphs and maps as an AMERICAN.....GOP & TP and groups or individuals who benefit from the misery of uninsured people and local governments who support these organizations & people, elected officials who are ridiculously partisan and blind to the TRUTH's and REALITIES of the present world .....should be rejected by the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES and Republicans and TP candidates must be thought a lesson in up-coming elections....”
“There are certain groups and people that your gut will warn you about them, it will say "You should not rely on their words"......last 6 years I have not seen a member of the GOP or TP to really care & consider the benefits of 98% of the AMERICAN's first. Their priority is always "themselves and their own"........so, now I declare U do not believe her or cronies... I am from Missouri...State motto is... Show Me ......”
“A political party ....not in a third world country or in 16th century.....in USA and now.... The Republicans still bad mouthing, bending truths and creating a negative atmosphere on A. C. A..... An effective US law that provides HEALTH COVERAGE for folks who do not have it about 43 Million....and stops the insurance companies DENIAL's of catastrophic illnesses...This A.C.A went through the scrutiny of SCOTUS as well. I cannot understand why REPUBLICAN's are still going at it even after over 40 lost appeals......can anyone explain the reasons of REPUBLICAN action against this law? (please make sure there is no FAUX, or creative BS included in your explanation. Only TRUTH please) thanks in advance”
“This type of rules makes us the main TARGET for cable companies to take the last few dollars out of our pockets....plus control what we are able to see and say.....Well folks , I want my USA back...I do not to live in a country where OLIGARH's or Companies rule my life in few years....”
“This has nothing to do with the PRINCIPLES of capitalism.....Principles of capitalism is based on Work & Earn, let them work and earn so that all can work and earn...without MONOPLOIES.......If the pitiful and GREEDY management is hiring one instead of 3 then take close look at your State 7 National LAWS, ETHICS as a HUMAN Being instead of blaming on Capitalism.....”
“Which counties are walking all over us? be specific...use or apply your thought process ability, global happenings and their reasons.......Begin with the master lie that was told before Iraq's invasion....then pick it up from there......as the beginning of your analysis...Haa, do not forget to add the factor of malfunctioning U.S. CONGRESS for the last 5 1/2 years into the equation”
