“Taking advice from Glen Beck about Christianity is like going to a local hospital and seeking out an Orderly for a hart problem. With Becks denominational choice, and his obvious elementary understanding of Christianity, Beck does nothing but validate the numerous flaws he has in the Christian Doctrine.”

Meg Whitman's Shady Goldman Sachs Past -- Is It California's Future?

Commented Mar 26, 2010 at 22:16:56 in Los Angeles

“Meg Whitman is like a petafile applying for an apartment next the grade school.

Lord will it ever stop. Here we go again with another person that showed absolutely little entrust in politics, most often not showing up at election time to vote. Had unpaid employment taxes, $1,648.58 for household servants when she lived in Boston during the 1990s. Then there her offshore tax havens to avoid paying her fair share of tax. A $4 million offshore investment, in Hedge Funds based in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, made by Whitman's charitable foundation in 2007. What I don’t understand is how a person with her history, even begins to think they have some patriotic gift to offer the people of California.”

NLRB Recess Appointments Supported By John Roberts, Opposed By John McCain

Commented Mar 26, 2010 at 14:11:11 in Politics

“Chief Justice John Roberts is wondering why Obama doesn't just make some recess appointments, already!

I agree with the Chief Justice and wondering who’s appointments these are, John McCain and the party of NO, or President Obama’s? I mean all the appointments as anything short of that will only have the likes of McCain retaliating by blocking any remaining appointments. Mr. President move onto other business. Let McCain, and NO deal with there anxiety of the appointments. Time for there stonewalling to stop.”

“It looks as if your Attorney General, Thurbert Baker is of the same legal mind as most U.S. State Attorney Generals. That being this is a no win law suit. Sounds like Attorney General Baker is a good man for Georgia.

And as for the pro bono, you can bet the insurance companies will be more than happy to give Georgia all the lawyers it will take. But then would that be Georgia’s entrust is served or the insurance companies.”

“I think the minute these boys close up shop, the President should make his appointments.
Long over due and would show these clowns that some work can still be done.”

Unemployment Extension Takes Backseat To Health Care

“If you get unemployment insurance benefits, then you paid the insurance premiums.
Best of luck in your job search, and don’t let anyone tell you you’re not entitled to collect benefits for your loss when you paid for the insurance.”

Andreams on Mar 24, 2010 at 16:31:34

“Unemployment compensation is not paid by the employee. It's paid by the employer and cannot be charged to the employee. Aside from that little technicality, I wholeheartedly agree with you. That insurance is for the use of employees who lose their jobs through no fault of their own.”

Is Meg Whitman Like Arnold Schwarzenegger? Yes (In the Wrong Ways)

Commented Mar 10, 2010 at 17:07:34 in Los Angeles

“Whitman has a long list of questions

There are the unpaid employment taxes for household servants in another state, $1,648.58 that went back to the 1990 and just recently got paid. And I’d guess her running for the governor had a lot to do with paying them now. Then there is about a $4 million offshore investment, in Hedge Funds based in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, made by Whitman's charitable foundation in 2007. When you’re worth $1.4 billion as Whitman is, and playing funny money games, one would think that politics is not a place you would venture into.”
