“The headline on this article is outrageously misleading. The words "convicted by a jury" imply that he was tried in a criminal court. This was strictly an internal church issue.”

“When I go to a doctor for the first time, they always ask for ID (to prove you're not trying to use someone else's insurance). It's been that way since long before Obama became President.”

“The article shows that opinions about Republicans are even more strongly negative than Obama's ratings. Why was Obama's name the only one mentioned in the headline? (Sounds like the opposite of left-wing bias.) It appears that most people who commented here only read the headline.”

The U.S. Blows Everyone Else Out Of The Water In 1 Key Way

Commented Oct 18, 2013 at 07:52:08 in Business

“The disparity between rich and poor back in 1929 was one of the causes of the Great Depression. When working people decline economically, they cannot afford to buy as many products from big companies and those companies see their profits decline.

Today we are back to 1929 levels of disparity. The middle class is suffering and losing buying power while many others work full time and are still in poverty. Reducing taxes for middle and working class Americans would stimulate the economy much more than the big breaks now given to the top 1% by our current tax structure.”

“"The disparity between rich and poor back in 1929 was one of the causes of the Great Depression."

“No, it is called taxation. Whether you like it or not, rich people paying for part of the government benefits they get is not theft. And, yes they DO benefit from government subsidies, preferential treatment, and other corporate welfare.”

“Please explain what government benefits they receive? And please explain how that bothers you if they did..Even at lower tax rates they pay in way more than someone like you who will use and qualify for much more.”

“Applying the tax code differently among people is not morally right.

Flat tax... make everyone pay 2 days of their work week to the government... that way everyone will be concerned about raising taxes.

It won't work... Democrats survive on class warfare.”

“How can you "steal" an election when you got a majority of the votes?

And: give an exact citation for "the" geologic(al) survey. Was it done by a group funded by the oil industry or is it just a 'fact' manufactured by a blogger someplace? ALL of the scientific studies I've seen make it clear there is less Arctic ice, not more.”

rlupia on Oct 18, 2013 at 08:45:48

“In case you are unfamiliar with the election system let me explain. You do not win the Presidency on popular votes, it is all about the electoral college. The only state that mattered was Florida at that point, and the vote count gave the state to Bush. Gore sued for recounts several times and each one gave the same result, but he sued again. Kind of defines Einstein's definition of insanity doesn't it?
Read the articles in Forbes, the dailymail or earthweek on the polar ice caps and you will get the facts that you will reject anyway.”

“In that district? We've already seen that movie a couple times. I sent in my $ to her opponent five years ago, maybe it was, when we first heard of her, when she said the media should investigate Congress to find out who isn't a real American. No soap. See, all these TP wingnuts actually represent the "thinking" of a majority in their districts. Voila! Louie Gohmert. Todd Akin. Let's focus on the ones we can beat.”

“That is probably one of the reasons she dropped out. Give another GOP to run instead of giving the DFL any advantage. Evidently that district just votes for ANYONE with and R after their name, never mind what they are going to do for the country”
