Newt Gingrich 'Very Surprised' At Nelson Mandela Backlash

Commented Dec 8, 2013 at 16:36:50 in Politics

“White racists hate and fear anybody who is not white, Newt. You grew up in this country. You ought to know that. The base of your own political party has been taken over by these clowns, and we both know what that is doing to the republican party.”

Wireless Carriers Block Simple Solution To Phone Theft To Protect Profits, Prosecutor Says

Commented Nov 20, 2013 at 16:30:56 in Technology

“Greed drives many things. The phone companies do not want a simple workable solution that would stop phone theft as it would cut off their place at the greed feed. The phone manufacturers are complicit in this scheme to fleece the people out of their money as decreased phone sales, because of fewer thefts of phones, would affect their bottom line also.”

“The GOP has been taken over by the barbarians. The only thing that the barbarians know how to do is to slash and burn, try to ram their radical agenda down people's throats, be bad actors when they don't get their way, and generally screw up everything that they touch. They do not govern because they do not have a clue about governing anything. They are, in summary, absolutely useless.”

“Mitt Romney, the man who would not release his tax returns to the American people while he was running for the presidency, has a lot of gall calling anybody else dishonest. The man was and is worthless.”

“Yes, I know it is Fox. That is the reason that I wrote the comment. Megyn Kelley is only the onscreen mouth piece for their propaganda machine. She is not going to investigate anything because she probably doesn't want to get fired, and because she would not have a clue on what to investigate nor where to start. She is nothing more than a blonde cover for a devious operation.”

“If Megyn Kelly really wants to vent her wrath on somebody or something, she ought to do some real unbiased investigations of the healthcare insurance industry. She might find that the root of all evil is not the Obama administration, but is really the broken healthcare insurance industry itself. Health insurance companies are in business for one reason only, and that is to make tons of money off of the American people while minimizing the service that they charge through the nose for. Our health care system is broken not because of the actions of the government, but because of the healthcare industry itself. The foundation of the out of control shabby system that we have today is because of the healthcare insurance industry. Any system that is based upon greed only brings grief and chaos.”

swalk2000 on Nov 14, 2013 at 14:49:00

“demotom, that last line is a great line. I wonder how many more times we'll have to see entire systems crash because of greed, before we begin to address the problem. I'm not sure what the answer is, but greed seems to be a large contributing factor to a lot of our institutional problems.”

Rogo99 on Nov 14, 2013 at 14:46:48

“It's Fox, they don't investigate.”

“Statistics suggest that 10 out of 11 drinkers of alcohol have no problem with alcoholism and 1 out of those 11 drinkers is either alcoholic or potential alcoholic. Erratic off the wall behavior is typical of any person who suffers from alcoholism. Such behavior is well documented. And, I did not say that Ted "Santa Anna" Cruz had alcoholism. I simply stated what would happen if he does suffer from alcoholism.”

AmericanDreamin on Nov 10, 2013 at 16:56:27

“You were the one who brought up alcoholism even though theres no evidence to suggest that Ted suffers from it.”

“Alcoholic behavior is always bizarre and unpredictable. If Ted "Santa Anna" Cruz does have the disease of alcoholism, and he does not begin recovery, he will not be around long enough to make any difference. Untreated alcoholism is a death sentence inflicted upon the alcoholic by the alcoholic.”

“Any time any republican politician tells you that he is a fiscal conservative, hold on to your wallet or purse. Republicans think nothing of costing the economy billions of dollars in the name of their screwed up ideology. They then try to place the blame for the results of their designed bad actions on others. They tax everybody with their lack of responsibility in the jobs that they were elected to do, but cannot do because of their total inability to contribute to sane governance. Republicans politicians are a waste of time, money, and resources.”

Newt Gingrich 'Appalled' By GOP's Anti-Obamacare Tactics

Commented Nov 5, 2013 at 00:40:11 in Politics

“It would not be surprising if republicans were purposely clogging up the Obamacare signup web site in order to keep people from signing up for health insurance under the provisions of the affordable care act. The more people who sign up for health insurance under the ACA, the worse the republican position of opposition to that act becomes. Perhaps NAS should perform a check to see if any hanky panky is going on to keep people from having access to the Obamacare web site and the signup procedure.”

Cosmo2010 on Nov 5, 2013 at 01:28:45

“I have often wondered if there was an act of sabotage involved. They attempted a congressional coup, they tried to extort the American president and held our population hostage to their demands, I would not put anything past them.”

“Congressmen will be in Washington for 133 days. That does not mean that they will work for anything like 133 days. Resubmitting bills that are DOA, holding House committee meetings that are nothing but conservative witch hunts, and spending too much time before TV cameras does not qualify a work. We pay these clowns a very high salary to do nothing of real value to the American people.
If we ran government like private industry, we would have fired many of these deadbeats a long time ago.”
