“Wars in iraq and afganistan and who knows where else, education skyrocketing, healthcare skyrocketing, billions if not trillions for banks and wall street, off the radar........A loon kills innocent people and the country is thrown into despair and finger pointing. He will get his day in court. RIP to all the dead and get well all injured. Bring the boys home and lets get everyone healthy and educated for all of our sakes.”

“Your comment is so blase in regards to those injured and killed during this attack. Shame on you!”

“It's not either/or you know. And two are public servants. We can multitask...”
“Yes lets meet with the corporate bums that have pillaged the american taxpayers and see what they think about this mess. oh all is well. no regulation check, mass layoffs check,massive profits check, no worker protections check, no credible unions to deal with check. alas we bend over and take it like true americans. Government/corporations use fear to get what they want and then blame the taxpayer for everything. we need this bailout or the freedom you see will go away. we'll have rioting and people committing suicide. so we sold our souls to wallstreet and banks and we have the suicide part but no rioting and protesting. the government is full of ex bank and wallstreet junkers, welcome to corporate america now get back to work and feed the corporate beasts.”
“We have border patrol agents living in the wild west carrying out sentences on illegal aliens and the masses applaud. Human rights can go into the gutter lets just shoot people if they come illegally. yah that's the ticket. I better not get pulled over since i'm mexican and most of the time i dont' carry my passport with me. The cops can just beat me to a pulp for breaking YOUR laws maybe taser me for just talking and trying to defend myself and if i die too bad illegal dirty mexican. land of the free, justice for all????”

“The officer was defending his partner. The ILLEGAL ALIEN was the one who came to our country ILLEGALLY and attacked a border patrol officer. The ILLEGAL ALIEN is at fault he is the one responsible for his own death.”

“You certainly have a warped sense of reality. If you don't like it here, go somewhere else.”
“yes gosh darnit here i am here again the leader that should have been..i'm telling ya'll when will i go away probably never since you guys seem to like having me around telling your president and ya'll what to do, it's like i'm babysitting ...well the president sits back and allows them invaders into our country...it has to stop now. hell yah i want a police state...why not ? no more illegals. it's HIS fault nothing gets done around here. nevermind that guy that was in office for eight years...he's a nice guy..never did anything to anybody...really nice guy...Obama stop immigration!!!! i am the boss here so listen to meeeeee!!!!!!! or else!!!!! get the gunss!!!!!”
“All colleges in this country have joined the ranks of the bankers and wall street junkers and they will receive a bailout in the form of pink slips for teachers, higher student fees,etc.
We argue about education, but we BAILED OUT the banks and wallstreet oh but that was a long time ago on some distant planet and we had to do it because the poor bankers made bad decisions betting on derivatives and high risk loans those poor guys that graduated from the ivy league and should know better than any of us lowly citizens about finance but hey we all make mistakes.
So a degree helps you do what? Rob the American taxpayer.”
Chavez was ELECTED to his position. What has he done other than sell the US oil??? The US government has allowed many dictators to exist as long as they are loyal to our needs.
Obama did what he should do. Be a man and as president of the greatest country on earth serve notice on all these nations that nothing will be swept under the rug as long as he's in command and with a smile to go with it.
cheney, limbaugh, hannity, o'reilly, are scared sissy's and want everyone to join them in fear. No thanks.”
“No bailouts. These rich wall street junkers should be allowed to fail. Our rich representatives and the rich have the most to lose by not bailing them out so of course they allowed it. 5% of Americans will run this country until the other 95 % stop fighting amonst themselves and stop them.”
“The ship is sinking...bankers and brokers get out first while the rest of us scramble for crumbs. Why did banks receive 700billion + dollars and now we get to argue about the viability of GM and the firing of CEO's? The outrage should be directed at Wall Street and the banks and Dubya. Write to your Congressman or representative about this outrage and leave GM out of it. Or should GM go to the banks that also got bailed out by our government for loans?
Boosh is staying out of all this mess that he helped create because nobody has the cajones to tell him he was wrong about Iraq and that he was wrong about torture wrong about deregulation wrong about the economy . He did not care about the American worker and we are reaping what he sowed.
The American worker has been under attack for the last eight years or so. No more matching 401k, pay cuts, less hours, layoffs, 401k losing more than half it's value, utilities raising prices, food costs going up, jobs shipped overseas. We seem to have money for two wars and billions for banks yet not enough to help our citizens. And where is the outrage?”

“Bush didn't sign the repeal of Glass-Steagall which brought us banking deregulation in 1999... Clinton did.”
“Now Fannie and Freddie are giving out bonuses with taxpayer money and people still want to make it about B. Hussein Obama. Under Clinton the deregulation started and continued to get worse under George Boosh. So no accountability. How nice. Now they get to sing cumbaya with taxpayer dollars like nothing ever happened. Our government is a corporation. They do what corporate America says. AIG is too big to fail!!. What a bunch of retards. B of A, Citi, too big to fail??? No all of these corporations paid money so these guys could get elected and now they are getting paid off. It's one big ponzi scheme being played on the American taxpayer.”
“There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once — shame on — shame on you. You fool me, you can't get fooled again. -Dubya
NO BAILOUTS. LET THESE LOSER WALLSTREET JUNKERS FAIL . THEY CAUSED THIS MESS ALONG WITH OUR OWN GOVERNMENT DEREGULATION AND NOW WE ARE STUCK PAYING FOR THE BONUSES AND PARTIES. WHY IS EVERYONE SURPRISED? TOO BIG TO FAIL BALONEY. WHAT A SHAM.”
“These guys are traitors to the Amercan taxpayer.They are waging war on the working man and should have never been bailed out. AIG, BofA, Citi, all a bunch of losers that got bailed out by Amercan taxpayers.
Talk about laughing all the way to the bank. Then we all argue legalities and semantics as they party like rock stars.”
“Who cares who is the leader of the GOP? All of these guys voted for all the mess we are in and people still take them seriously? These guys are traitors just like Bush and should be tried. Yet, half of America still believes that McPalin would have done a great job. Hilarious. We go down in flames to a standing ovation.”
“In a democracy that prides itself on giving liberty and freedom, I can only ask why would we need a law to protect anybody when they are already protected under our constitution. Anybody who thinks a human being in this country doesn't deserve freedom is a traitor. Freedom for all or freedom for NONE.”
“These Repubs are traitors to the American people. It is not them who are losing their jobs and not having enough to pay bills or their mortgages. How is a tax cut going to help a person without a JOB and no healthcare????
Who do they think pays their wages or their healthcare or their retirement? They must do what is in the best interest of the American people. Enough partisan or bipartisan crap. Why was the bank STIMULUS passed without all of this outrage and questioning????
We send billions in aid to foreign countries yet we can't help our citizens? How sad. The Republicans should be ashamed of themselves but we live in a time where there are no consequences for this behavior and this to me is a damn shame since it is always the taxpayer who loses in the end.”

“You have been reading the wrong editorials. You no longer need a job to get a tax break. If you make no money the IRS sends you a check. If you have a family of 4 and make under a certain amount the IRS sends you money. Keep up. You sound like my father. Plus there are unemploymenefits.
Am I the only person that thinks it is strange that we tax people on social security, disablity, food stamps or whatever the program.
Why should those holding govt offices pay taxes. They are helping the peope of America. Pay them less and not make them pay taxes. Unless there is a lobbyist in the family. Then they should pay triple taxes”

A brief lesson in economics. The more money people have, the more they will spend. The more they spend, the more jobs are created to provide the goods and services that create jobs and sustain the economy.
You would be right, a person without a job will not get a tax break. We should not be sending money in foreign aid around the world. Instead, we should be sending American made products to those people in need. They get the help they need, and you get the job that makes that happen.
It would be nice to blame this all on the Repubs, but reality is the blame is squarely on the shoulders of both parties and the voters that elected them into office. We have literally gotten what we voted for!!”
“Let's not tell them how to pay their employees, let's not give them any money and let them fail like all other businesses. Isn't that the America WE all know? what a bunch of traitors. yet they whine all the way to the bank. Greedy bastards.”
“those in power are addicted to making themselves richer. it's no secret. they use divide and conquer tactics and we just fight amongst ourselves for the scraps they are willing to give us.
Socialism is used as a bad word to divide this country yet we bailed out the banks, we have social security, food stamps,etc. And still some will say that is not socialism. Sure it isn't.
These political parties serve the corporations not the people. When are we going to demand more for education, healthcare, transportation, for ALL not just the middle class and the poor.
In the meantime, it's conservative vs liberal , repub vs dem, what a bunch of nonsense.”
