“Pay your fair share - then guess what? Defecit, infastructure, Social Security, jobs problems...SOLVED!
We're not broke - we've been hijacked by greedy corporations.
PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE!”

“What is a "fair share?" Our 80,000-page tax code is not clear on this. Simplify the tax code, and reduce marginal rates and you'll get more money in. As it is, everyone has a loophole and no one but the unusually unlucky pays the marginal rate.”
How different our country would we be if we had spent war money instead on securing our chemical and nuclear power plants, our borders, ports, and airline systems (not just making people take their damn shoes off- while who know what gets loaded into the belly of the plane!) Or on green energy production, to lessen our dependency on polluting fossil fuels.
The terrorists have already won in so many ways, assisted by Bush, Cheney & company "who exploited the attacks for their own personal, political or military gain.".
It's sickening to see Bush at these memorials - it's his administration's ignorant recklessness that missed the signs and allowed this waste of life to happen. But then again, they had been looking for a way to justify invading Iraq. Hmmmm.....”

“As long as health care is an immoral FOR-PROFIT business none of this matters.
As long as the 75% of the oncologist's salary is derived from how much chemo he/she can manipulate the patient into taking, none of this matters. (One chemo patient represents approximately $500,000 for the facilty and the doctor.)
As long as drug companies can make outrageous profits for treatment drugs while research for cures is under-funded or held back, none of this matters.
Health care is a human right for all, not just the people who can afford it.
This whole country, which is run by corporations, is SICK.”
“I suggest everyone do this. Thanks for the site!”

“Also, use the link in the article and sign the petition from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. I'd love to hear that Boehner got millions of messages from all of us hard-to-find supporters of the public option.”
“He claims he hasn't heard a single American who wants the PUBLIC OPTION--there's only about 65% of us who do--let's all make sure he hears us!
Folks outside of John Boehner's district can let him know how you feel about the PUBLIC OPTION here: http://republicanleader.house.gov/Contact/”
“When Corporations run the Governement and buy the lawmakers, when CORPORATE POWER IS PROTECTED...it called FASCISM, and it's out there right now for all of us to witness. Insurance companies are raping and pillaging the people of this nation.
Other signs of Fascism?
Disdain for Human Rights, Controlled Mass Meida, Religion and Governement intertwined, Disdain for Intellectuals & the Arts, Rampant Cronyism & Corruption, FRADULANT ELECTIONS.
This is a pretend Democracy ushered in by the all corrupt, ALL special-interst driven BUSH adminsitration.”
“We love you David Letterman!
You were just doing your job-- being a comedien. Palin should do her job--be a mother. Oh I forgot she'd rather EXPOLIT her own CHILDREN to advance her POLITICAL career. What a hypocrite.”

“I thought her job was to be a narrow-minded, uninformed, devisive, shill for the extreme right...”
“Olive Garden is owned by Darden Restaurants--"the largest casual dining chain in the US". They also own Red Lobster, Longhorn Steakhouse, The Captal Grille, Seasons 52, and Bahamas Breeze Island Grille. If you go there and eat their faux food, it's time to BOYCOTT all of them!
It's bad enough Palin EXPLOITS her own CHILDREN for her political ambitions, but now a US corporation joins in the madness!
I sent an email to Darden expressing my outrage, please everyone, do the same.”

“How did i KNOW OG and RL were somehow related!
This company needs to go out of business - they produce sub par food and people think it's fine dining. I'd much rather give my dinero to local mom and pop restaurants.”
“The torture program was developed to illicit a connection between Iraq and 9/11, and then was instituted to justify an illegal war/occupation. Almost 5,000 US service people are dead, thousands more maimed for life, hundreds of thousand more Iraqi's are dead or exlied.
Any way you cut it seems there's enough war crimes committed by the Bush regime to go around.”
“Fascism is fascism. From Rome to George W. Bush, when mankind starts jerrying the rules of republican or democratic governance to get to the ends of the leaders of that moment, you have the end of days for that society....Brian Ross in today's op-eds”
Please Chuck, not you. Tim Russert is rolling over in his grave.
This is not a partisan issue. It's a LEGAL issue and MUST be investigated if we are to call ourselves a nation of laws.
a moderate, sensible, worried for our country, Democat.”
“...the sky is falling message. The defecit that Bush created, the jobless #'s, unemplyment #'s, housing forclosures? That's reality, not some trumped up "message", like FOX used to manipulate the racists.
And I guess you must make more than $250,000 a year, Lucky You!
Cuz I don't, so my taxes ARE NOT increasing.”
“Teabaggers = Racists
Facism = When corporations run the government like-- in the Bush days
Socialism is and has been a part of this country's Democracy, through programs like Social Security and Medicare, Veterans' benefits, etc. Teabaggers, do yo really want to deny those benefits to YOUR MOTHER, or GRANDPA? YOUR BROTHER who is a VETERAN?
SNAP OUT OF IT!
How ignorant do you have to be, to be mainpulated by corrupt politicians and corporations (the biggest news corporation in the world is News Corp, aka FOX NEWS), into protesting things that would actually HELP you??!! DUH.
When white man George Bush sqaundered your children's future (after INHERITING A BUDGET SURPLUS) by creating the BIGGEST budget deficit EVER and EXPANDING the governement to its biggest ever SINCE World War II, you didn't make a peep.
Now that a black man is trying to fix it, there's outrage.
It's called RACISM, straight up.”

“I would not consider Veterans Health, educational and life insurance benefits socialism, for the that is an obligation every American should gladly pay it is a RIGHT, you fight for your country you deserve every opportunity and benefit that is available.”

“400.00 kick back is not help. Help comes from allowing people to grow their business's. Not to be confused with higher tax burdens at the worst possible time.
How ignorant do you have to be to buy into this the sky is falling message that promotes everyone giving their money to the government to fix things....are you kidding me. And you think conservatives are ignorant.”
“It's ironic that someone from the MOST CORRUPT administration EVER--would feel he had the right to pass judgment on any issue in the Obama administration, let alone such a completely lame and meaningless one--the dress code. Oh, that's important. With the magnitude of problems these people left in their wake, his comments REVEAL JUST HOW OUT OF IT he is.
Andy Card- SHUT THE HELL UP, and go back to the HOLE YOU CRAWLED OUT OF with Cheney, Bush, Condi, Rummy and the rest of the CRIMINALS.
Oh and P.S. did you happen to see all the photos of past Presidents (including Bush) at work in the Oval Office without jackets? Reagan isn't even wearing a tie!”
“Spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.
If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.
If you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI conviction, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
No double standard there!”

“Here's my impersonation of the Republican response:
"Governor Palin was the sportscaster and to say otherwise is sexist and elitist and why are you lying about Governor Palin's impeccable record?!"”
