'Liberal Media Elitist' Makes Friends Amid Conservatives

'Liberal Media Elitist' Makes Friends Amid Conservatives

Commented Jun 23, 2011 at 10:52:49 in Politics

“Hi Mandy. I first want to say that this has to be the best article I've read on this site in a long time. We are not so different, conservatives and liberals. We only want to be able to make ends meet and live our lives free of harassment by those who crave control. We all want to feed our families. We all want lower taxes and cheaper gas. It's the way we go about it is the only difference. I have many liberal friends and we get along just fine. Thank you again for this well written article and you have my respect. Peace, Keith.”

“I'm going to laugh hard when AOL shuts this money losing rag down. HAHAHA!!”

Masonx on Feb 23, 2011 at 18:14:03

“After paying 315 M in cash, that doesn't seem very likely - at least for a while. From AH's perspective and large portion of that 315M in her bank - I'm guessing she doesn't think of it as a money losing rag. Aren't we all just a little jealous she did so well?”

“So smart guy, if it did work then why pray tell was Cygna (who IS a health insurance provider) the first company to line up for their waiver to the whole act?”

“Sorry but it is. According to tax codes, you cannot be taxed for something you did NOT use. Remember? It's called taxation without representation and if I remember correctly, that's exactly why we revolted in the first flaming place.”

“If it was however mandated by law that they MUST put out the fire then this is of course either state or gov level regulation which goes against the concept of the free market...”

“Yes...the government-run fire department. Astounding that you think the free marker created this.”

“You really must know that the unions that support Obama so vehemently have around half of their memebers in foreign countries right? Out of the SEIU's member base a portion of it is outside the continental US.”

“FYI, it has been a DEM controlled congress and house for the last 6 years so how is it the "righties" froze the COLA and the likes?”

Schalaine on Dec 7, 2010 at 18:28:52

“Dude, the Dems have NEVER been in control of the Senate. They may have had 60, but they never had 60 votes. Blue-Dogs DO NOT vote yes on any Progressive issue. Ever. Unlike Republicans, Democrats do not vote in lock-step with their party. I know, it sucks! If they had, we would be so much farther on a road to recovery. Rather, we seem to be going backwards at an alarming rate.”

freshie on Dec 7, 2010 at 18:04:08

“And that's the argument they will use. And they will be right. So, why entertain a deal that puts us in more debt? What happens when countries start asking for their money?”

hawkseye on Dec 7, 2010 at 18:02:46

“"Righties" as you say, from both parties have screwed up the country.”

flymonkey on Dec 7, 2010 at 18:00:09

“I said the righties claim the tax breaks for the rich equal jobs. They have not created jobs and they will not create jobs.”

“Have YOU walked around in Suberbia? Have you talked with people living in the inner cities? From your post I highly doubt it. Yes, we HAVE people living on bread crumbs and less. You live in the sugar coating on top, the real world is underneath it.”

MrUnlimited on Aug 16, 2010 at 22:04:21

“1. Yes, I have; many of my college friends live in suburbia.
2. Yes, I have; not only have I talked to people in inner cities, I've also worked to mentor kids from inner cities (Philadelphia).

Even if extreme poverty exists in the U.S., it's nowhere near as widespread as in the 3rd world and unlike most 3rd world countries we actually have programs like unemployment benefits, welfare, and foodstamps to alleviate the problem to an extent.

Btw, I spent 5 years of my childhood living in West Africa. Unlike you and the guy I initially responded to, I'm more than just talk. If you actually READ Pete2069's post you would've seen that he's implying that 80% of our country is trying to survive on bread crumbs:

"American's wealth is now at the top 20 percent of Americans.

The rest are trying to survive on bread crumbs."

80% of the people? I'm guessin the that most of the people in that 80% would be surprised to find out that they're living a 3rd world lifestyle. If you want to join Pete2069 in the land of hyperbole and delusion then be my guest, but trying to equate the experience of the American poor with people in the 3rd world is intellectually dishonest. Btw, have YOU ever been to a 3rd world country.?”
