“Great job, Candy Crowley.
Great job, President Obama.
Satisfactory job, Ex-Governor Romney.”

“Satisfactory? You mean his bullying tactics, right?

Obama for another four years.”

“Good luck with that one, Trey. You must be too young to remember 1987, when many portfolios lost 50 percent or more of their value and took years to recover (though the brokers did fine, taking commissions on sales as their clients sold out in a crisis frenzy). If there is any volatility at all in the market, privatized Social Security is a danger...unless you are so rich that SS is a pittance to you, and you don't really need it and can afford to gamble.”

“Social Security is an investment, not a welfare, program. So is Medicare. We pay into those all our lives. Those who don't pay, or no longer pay, include bums like veterans disabled in combat, the profoundly ill or disabled, or perhaps those who have been laid off by big takeover companies such as Bain that off-shored their jobs...if you include unemployment as a "welfare" program. The ignorance displayed in your comments is depressing.”

Obama Campaign At DNC: Where Are The 'Over The Transom' People?

Commented Sep 5, 2012 at 23:40:44 in Politics

“For what it's worth, here is two cents from an "over the transom" 2008 volunteer; we donated hundreds of dollars (not a big deal by Koch standards, but a first time political gift from our family with plenty of places for the money to go). We were not just starry eyed about hope and change; we were deeply impressed with Obama as a critical thinker. And we understand that he has performed well in the wake of a Republican hate machine that is better funded than some U.S. wars. What is limiting our engagement now, and this may be the case with others like us, is the relentless and prolific political spam we receive as a result of our earlier gifts: it's quite cynical. You can tell that the campaign is trying to punch the right button: are we gay sympathizers, military empathizers, worried about obesity, proud of Pelosi, worried about guns? The wide and unwanted distribution of our names feels like an invasion. We're sick of it. We've given already. We'll vote for Obama, and we'll encourage others to do the same, but someone needs to tell the Machine that the overkill begging may suppress enthusiasm, if not turnout. Probably the same for Republicans, but with our people, it's really, really out of control and it feels like they've stolen our privacy, which we cherish.”

“I understand what you're saying, I get the same repetitive emails, but I regard it as part of the system. Email is virtually free, and the parties want to cover all the bases. I don't try to filter it out; I read some of it, but just delete most of it.

Maybe it helps to understand what the fundraisers are up to these days. People who are emotionally aroused are more likely to act, so the solicitations follow hard on the heels of provocative statements from the other side. It must work, because they keep doing it. It's like junk mail, except it's junk email.

You can always "unsubscribe", but that won't get all of it.”

“Totally agree...and with us, here in Wisconsin, we've had nothing but elections to fund locally over the last year, never mind all the requests for donations from those running for federal office.

Will absolutely vote for Obama/Ryan; the apparent decline of energy/money should not be interpreted as a lack of conviction or support.”

“What I'm most opposed to with the bill is not the fact that it is mediocre, which just as many pundits believe, but the fact that I am being FORCED to use it. I do not believe taking away the RIGHT TO CHOOSE, which our country is based on, is the correct direction for our country.”

“What nonsense. Seniors paid, and are paying, for Medicare and Social Security and others are investing in those programs for their future security as we speak. The "entitlement" programs were investment programs that were pillaged by politicians from BOTH parties. Put the Republicans in and, if history is our guide, we'll soon have another elective trillion dollar war and absolve the super-rich from paying a rational tax percentage. Republicans can yell "class war" all they want. Their "generational war" is truly despicable...and utterly avoidable.”

“I am old enough to remember when homophobia was accepted nearly universally in my home state of Texas. I grew up in a loving, but homophobic, home...parents simply didn't know better. I have so many regrets about that, but as our culture has changed, gay rights have become law, and gay couples are enjoying the benefit of marriage, I want this young man to know that even my 86-year-old mother is fully accepting, regretful for her earlier mindset, and that one entire American family opened themselves to education on this issue. God bless you, and please forgive us for our early years. We did not understand.”

“Romney says he paid "lots of taxes," which could be sales taxes on clothes, groceries, cars, whatever. He has not said he "paid lots of income taxes." That's the point of contention. Show the returns and amend your statement if you paid income taxes, lots of income taxes, Mitt.”

supertamsf on Aug 5, 2012 at 12:41:21

“Romney is delusional if he thinks the term "lots of taxes" is definitive enough when running for POTUS. It's like going to a job interview and saying you worked "really hard" at previous jobs.”

demwolf on Aug 5, 2012 at 12:40:26

“If you make $20 milion a year and pay $1million in taxes that would seem like a lot of taxes to the average person. However, it is 5% to the payor. While if you make $20 thousand a year and pay $3 thousand dollars it is 3 times the rate that the rich person paid and would hurt a lot more. I guess it all depends on the definition of "lots." Release the returns, Mitt.”

“I saw a description once that described all of the hidden taxes we pay in day to day transactions and necessity and it was like 17% additional or something. That's not including income taxes, state and federal.”
