“Yeah, but the Viper died first, unfortunately.”

“this is not surprising. ridiculous, but not surprising.

basically humans need to feel that there is meaning to their lives. they want to know that after they die, a piece of them will remain. the thought of just 'not existing' anymore is too terrifying for words. some people focus on wealth, figuring if they leave money to people, or have buildings or companies with their name on it, they will 'live forever'. some are obsessed with fame, thinking their notoriety will outlive them. still others see themselves living on through their children and the family name. but mostly people cling to religion to hold off that incredible fear that they one day might not exist.

atheists challenge this notion. if there is no god and no religion, there would be no 'meaning of life' for these people. no wonder people fear the atheists...the religious are frightened to the core that they are wrong. blind faith is their shield against nothingness.”

“according to the amendment, he will hurt soros as well. but who cares? is it possible that a politician is going against his own self interest and legislating based on what the people want and need? it's possible. doubtful but possible. my guess is that the citizens united ruling completely favors republican donors.

however it doesn't matter. if he is shooting himself and fellow dems in the foot...so be it. good.

do you favor this amendment?

by the way, you koch brothers fact being 59th is the biggest bunch of malarkey i have ever read.”

“agreed.
i used to buy regular tostitos tortilla chips. then one day they came out with tostitos "natural" tortilla chips. so i looked at the ingredients thinking, "i wonder what makes these 'natural'?" the ingredients were corn, oil and salt. i thought that that made sense. then i looked at the regular tostitos tortilla chips. it had dozens of ingredients...for the same taste. to this day i don't understand why a) anyone would by the not 'natural' chips and b) why tostitos would waste all of that money on all of the other ingredients when all you need is 3.”

“No. Members of congress are virtually immune from slander/libel laws for any statement they make in an official capacity. And they are never under oath when speechifying on the floor, so there is no perjury.”

“i don't understand this line from the article:

"They also pointed out that not only have the investigations found that the screenings were not politically motivated, but all 39 witnesses from the IRS who were deposed by Issa -- including workers who are Republican -- said the same."

39 people said that there was no wrong doing!

shouldn't this be the end of it? isn't there an oversight for the oversight committee? is no one there in charge of following due process? following the facts? can anything be done about this farce? seriously…anything?”

“you are delusional. and insulting.
try living below the poverty line and get back to me.

your logic is so illogical it gives me a headache. according to your logic, the working poor today are wealthier that nelson rockefeller because...heck, he didn't have a cell phone.

also, we were talking about the rich and how they are, in essence, stealing from the middle class. as their wages go up, ours go down.

and no one lived happily ever after.”

“so they were growing until 2007 and then, even before obama took office, they started to decline. i wonder what happened in 2008?

however, that is besides the point.

your previous posts saying that the 1% is a constantly fluctuating body and that anyone can get in is pure hogwash. and a distraction.

the fact is that the wealthiest in this country are getting wealthier and the poor keep getting poorer. the system is stacked in favor of the wealthy (mostly because they lobby to change the rules) and the poor and middle classes are having their money taken from them.

if you can't see this obvious injustice...then go back to school.”

commonsense68130 on May 1, 2014 at 14:11:36

“School is where you learn fairy tales. You should go out into the real world.

The poor of 2014 have cell phones, cable, internet, flat screen televisions and are obese... even if they don't put an hour of work in during the week. I think the 1970's poor would have loved the life of today's poor. That's not the definition of "getting poorer."”
