“what you're failing to understand is that more people are on food stamps. If Obama doesn't like that fact he can sign an executive order to help, as he's signed over 200 of them in his tenure already. In addition, read all the studies about how raising the minimum wage actually decreases unemployment. If you're a business owner you won't hire as many people if the cost to hire is raised, it's economics 101. Bottom line is the people need to help themselves instead of waiting around for government to help them, that's a sure fire way to communism or fascism. Once you start to view things objectively instead of through the lens of a partisan individual everything will become more clear. You'll remove yourself from the matrix. Believe me, it takes awhile :)”

“ok, lets get a few things straight. Having any party loyalty is not only childish but harmful. Being a part of the donkey or elephant shows a lack of thinking, as they're both ultimately on the same team. did you know that the income gap has actually gotten larger under Obama? The 1% are making obscene profits in the allegedly economic recovery, but you wouldn't know that because you just listen to what the President says instead of doing some fact checking on what he's bloviating about. Median net income for the middle class is down again, jobs created are mostly minimum wage, and 50 million people are on food stamps (up from 35 million in 2009). So how is this working for the 99% ?”

lmash on Dec 7, 2013 at 11:46:46

“Normally I don't have any party loyalty but since the disaster of the Bush years and the failed policies of the last three repub presidents I have absolutely no connection to that party whatsoever (not to mention their bigotry, mysogeny, homophobia....) We have been climbing out of the downward spiral of the Bush years and the repubs of today have only added to the deficit because of their personal agenda against THIS President. I am totally aware of the obscene profits of the 1% - all of which has occurred because of the tax breaks for the rich that are still being protected by the right. You complain that the new jobs are minimum wage - who is fighting to get that raised?? The repubs want it abolished. Food stamps??? Glad you brought that one up 44% of veterans are on food stamps as the repub run congress has voted down every bill designed to help veterans including a jobs bill. Matter of fact this congress has done NOTHING to help the situation we are in. It has always been liberals that have fought for human rights and social safety nets. The repubs have fought against every one of them. The country is improving whether you want to acknowledge it or not. Your side created the mess and then stand in the way of fixing it.”

“I certainly don't believe anything you repubs say. You haven't been right about anything in ages - trickle down, Iraq, tax cuts for the wealthy, sequester, shut down, women's issues and much, much more. Your party has become useless and toxic. So, yeah, I'll stick with the party that looks toward the future and gets things done for the other 99%. You can continue to worship the party of rich, white males. Pretty sure you're not part of the 1% but I am positive that they have sr3wed you and you continue to let them.”

“just let Christians be Christians and atheists be atheists

Happy Sunday to all”

dgolob7 on Nov 10, 2013 at 12:38:01

“No one is saying Christians cannot be Christians but if they are really Christians they should not judge the poor in order to feel they need to teach them a lesson.

No one knows what it is to walk in another mans shoes. Remember "footprints on the sand" It is not the place of people to judge another and feel to not give is to get them to work.

There are jobs out there but some do not have the skills to get these jobs so until they can get some training or find a job that pays more than the minimum wage they just may need help and that is why we have food stamps which the Republicans have cut Many are working but not making enough to feed the family and may need assistance. Christians have become haters.”

“If that was true (protip: it's not), then why do Christians make it so easy for others to make them look bad?

Bill Maher was not making up what he said; it can be seen all over the place. If somebody is making you look bad, instead of lashing out at them for making you look bad, maybe you should not make it so easy to do so.”
