“Why is this Obama's problem? And why am I having to pay the bill for this clean up? Those people living down there have pushed for years for this type of off-shore drilling. Now let them live with it. They don't care about the environment all they care about is where they can get their next paycheck.
Let the Republicans clean up this mess they created. Jindal the Repub. Governor has never wanted any part of the Government in his backyard, so why ask for it now. There are actually more important things going on in America then a man made oil spill, do you think we could get the President to concentrate on those things. All the Repub Governors along the coast can clean up their own mess they created with off shore deep sea drilling.”
“This woman is a joke. Her comment about her and Carly being business women from the real world. HAHA HA. In my real world I can loan myself 70 million dollars to fund a campaign. Those don't know the first thing about the real world, they haven't been a part of it for a long long time.”

“Read the Elle article. She's stating that the paparrazi act like the low-lifes you would see at a public rape. Remember the movie The Accused, those people who just stood around screaming and trying to keep it going - that's the same mentality of the paparazzi.
And people remember this woman goes to closed movie sets to Work, she doesn't go to bars or participate in the Lindsay lohan, paris hilton social drunken parties.”
“I say that to the television everytime one of them start spewing the lies. Its about time someone finally said it to them. THey should be told that at least once a day because it's the most appropriate thing to say to a LIAR.”

“Republicans can't even come up with a legitimate comparison to the real world. "Without a verification requirement it's essentially like posting a 55-mph speed limit and not having any highway patrol on the road," said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
On any given day you can pass three highway patrol and still people are driving by at 70-80 mph.
If they think that is the only problem they can yell at publicly then they have some serious problems. I don't want to see illegal's from mexico and europe covered under the planbut come on people don't show how stupid you really are.”
“Palin never gets the point of a conversation and most of the time neither do her followers. I knew right off the bat he was talking about Bristol which makes his jokes hilarious. After all it's pretty darn incredulous to go around talking about abstinence and family values when you had premarital sex under the age of 18 ended up knocked up and now live off from the notoriety of it all.
Sarah Palin only hears what she turn around and spin the right way.
And as for Prejean, it's never o.k. to go around preaching that only a certain few have civil rights in this country. If you think it's o.k. how about we put slavery on the ballot and have it say every working brown person can own one white person who doesn't work ,and see if it will pass. Will that make it law?”
howdyfromtexas on Jun 11, 2009 at 14:08:25
“I am white and I would vote for that law. There are way more white people on welfare rolls than brown.
I am from Texas though and everyone works here, Lowest employment rate in the country.
Prejean said she thinks marriage is between a man and a woman. Why is she not allowed to have this opinion, its the same as Obama's..
Clinton and Obama both use drugs and speak out against them but Bristol is not allowed to talk about sex ?”
wtexannie on Jun 11, 2009 at 14:03:45
“As far as "talking about abstinence and family values when you had premarital sex under the age of 18", have you ever heard the expression, "cautionary tale"? When the actor, Yul Brenner, was dying of lung cancer due to smoking, he made a famous commercial where he warned people not to smoke. I guess that was "pretty darn incredulous" of him. But I also thought, pretty brave. I also think it takes some bravery at 18 to step into the public and say, "don't do what I did". But that's just me.”
“I'm not an advocate for marriage between any two people straight or gay, it was the worst 6 years of my life. What I think is hilarious is when people like John McCain and Newt Gingrich talk about traditional family values; both had extra maritial affairs but somehow think they can speak to "core family values".
Cracks me up everytime. In fact Republicans crack me up everytime they speak about values.”
“It's time communities look at the Board of Supervisors and elected county officials. Schools and libraries began deteriorating years ago and county officials did nothing to repair the buildings. Counties were collecting exorbitant amounts of property taxes over the last couple of years and yet no funds went into buildings. It went into the pockets of elected officials. Figure it out people. Clean your house up (county administrators) before you invite over new guests (feds).
Community buildings like rec centers say alot about your County officials.”
“HELLO! is anybody home, doesn't look like you even read the act. A secret ballot is an option. Don't buy into fear propaganda. Seek out the details don't assume someone is telling you the truth.
America is founded on the secret ballot; it's what we are accustomed to it is what will always be.
This act is needed.”

“She just does a copy and paste of her same post every time there is an EFCA column on this blog.”
“I pulled my own 7 year old from public school because it was awful. Fortunately I was able to get him into a charter school free of charge. An entirely different philosophy of teaching; something the public school system lacks. This country has always been about choice and Charter schools deserve to be funded at equal to the so called public school system.
No one should HAVE to send their kids to public school. But we also shouldn't have to pay thousands for an education.
It's about time someone recognizes the legitimacy of Charter schools.”
TopProf on Mar 10, 2009 at 16:48:03
“You're lucky you got into a good one. Unfortunately, on average, kids at charter schools do no better than those at comparable neighborhood schools, ACCORDING TO RESEARCH EVIDENCE. So, legitimize that.”
“I'm sick of hearing the MSM misrepresentation of the facts on their economic reporting. HELLO the last 6 years of the market doing wonderful was based on FRAUD. Do you not get it. I get it here on Main Street. Wall STreet workers made billions based on a FRAUD. Let us not forget that. Now that the fraud has been exposed and taken away so is the 6,000 points that were gained in the last six years. Wall STreet has been a fraud for the last six years. FRAUD FRAUD FRAUD - Get it MSM.”
mmerose on Mar 10, 2009 at 14:04:31
“A good point, but maybe a little background about speculative bubbles would help to explain. The political issues remain. Whom did the fraud serve? Whom do you trust to guard against fraud in the future? To what degree do we have a moral imperative to punish the defrauders? (The general legal principle is that there is no statute of limitations on fraud.)”
“So Wall Street did wonderful it was up to 9000 during times of rampant fraud and manipulation of the financial system. During the past 6 years the financial system has been out of control and alot of people got rich because of fraud from these Wall St institutions; so guess what happens when you take away the illegal fraud. Because people can't get rich anymore from fraud they don't want to play anymore.”

“Excellent point! How can we trust the market when it has been lying to us for years?”
“It's about time that people see the real cost of the war. I get choked up every Sunday at the conclusion of "This Week with George Stephanopoulos". Reading their names and ages is heartbreaking. Human Life is gone and it's not coming back because of one man's bad decision. But Bush can go on with his life as if nothing ever happened.
It's about the time the cold hard truth is put in front of people.”

“What an idiot. The greatest country in the world is great because of it's governments committment to it's citizens. From the constitution to the amendments which guarantee everything from free speech to the right to vote.
The GOP (Great Obstructionist Party) are losing their minds if they continue to put Jindel and Palin before the american people.
As a blue dog democrat I enjoy it but at some point you have to begin to wonder about these peoples state of mind.”

“Govt's commitment to its citizens? How about gov't commitment to getting smaller for once, like our forefathers wanted, and no income tax like they wanted which was unconstitutional, and lets get rid of the worthless Fed too, another unconstitutional piece of crap.”
“It's about time he told the GOP that their theories on the economy are outdated and unacceptable. They are the very reason that Wall Street failed and you betcha the effects of that seem to have trickled down rather rapidly. But their Reagan economics of wealth will trickle down still hasn't panned out.
They are a bunch of old cronies who need to get out of the way of change.”
ginxy on Feb 4, 2009 at 17:16:40
The absolute LAST thing we need is more direction and demands about economic failure from the GOP.
Seriously. Their arrogance is astounding. They clearly have learned nothing from the economic destruction they have given us.
It's almost like they are TRYING to ruin our country.”
“It's not the same as being self-employed genious; he was working for an international organization. And considering the IRS confirmed that over half of the people found in the type of employment situation described herein; I consider it an honest mistake. Let me see I wonder if any of the Sentator sitting on the committee actually understand the IRS rules. Probably not because none of them do their own taxes because they don't want to miss out any of their tax breaks they voted for.
This Committee needs to get on with it. Republicans were rejected fiercely because they couldn't figure out it was the Economy and now their still lagging behind when it comes to issues of the Economy.”

“Empowering young girls is the answer. I'm 37 now and during my high school years I watched cousins and friends get pregnant. I'm American Indian and so the teen pregnancy rate is high. Fortunately I had a mother who not only empowered me but scolded me forcefully for wanting to be like the other girls. Today I have a son who is 7 while my cousins and friends have 18 years olds and I'm watching them live the same lives as their parents. I am by no means the perfect parent but I am truthful with my child about life and what it has to offer. Individuals have to live with the choices they make in life so think before you act; understand your options before you decide. Children are never too young to learn to live life that way. Empowering young girls is what I believe the answer to be especially for those living in poverty like conditions; the same as me.”

“Yes, empowerment is 'where it is at!' It sounds like your mother needs to be cloned. What a fine job she did in raising you. Tough love is much more difficult than soft. It sounds like she gave both. Your son is blessed, as well, with your way of mothering.
I am inspired by your story. Keep on keepin' on. You have the capacity to uplift those in Darkness.
“I think California has had enough of Republican leadership. Let me refresh their memory. We were duped into removing Davis as Governor and voted in Arnold and look at where we are today. Yeah I think we'll pass on what the republicans are handing it out.”
