“I always seem to be watching to shows no one is talking about...so just quietly enjoying them. RuPaul's Drag Race AllStars, Breaking Amish, Castle, Supernatural, and Key & Peele. The only show I still watch in the list above is bones...and I switched allegiance when they killed off a beloved intern who showed up on Alphas on SyFy where he is wonderful. There's way, way, way too much TV to keep up with it all....so I don't try.”
“Do you know anything about this country? 47% of Americans are not on Social Security, Public Assistance and get Food Stamps!! And the ones who do are elderly, disabled, or are the working poor!! The only chains I've seen are the ones shackled to the lives of people by the banking and credit system, the prison system, and the corporate global empires that enslave people in jobs in which they are unable to afford to pay their bills. When you are working full-time at Wal-Mart and still qualify for food stamps, section8, and Wic - it means the government is in effect subsidizing Wal-Mart for not paying living wages and enslaving workers in China!!!”
“Some of those little people do get to go to Harvard....like Barack Obama! It's when those little people actually rise up to a position of power do those in the 1% get scared and begin their campaign of disinformation and fear; which started day1 of his presidency!”
“Keep dreaming this is a non-story! Even some of those who supported Romney are dismayed by his comments and find the callous and misguided. And who exactly are in that 47%? Anyone who has ever lost a job, gotten sick, gotten old and had to apply for SS or unemployment!! He has alienated not just the swing voters, but even his base.”
“If there has been increased participation in the SSI, SSDI, and food stamp program; it has been a direct result of the 30 years of trickle down voodoo economics. Just give the rich more tax breaks and they will create jobs? Well where are they? Right, they're over in China, India, the Phillipines and Mexico!! As the middle class has shrunk - more people have had to swallow their pride in order to survive and request benefits. Have some people given up...you bet they have. They see people with Masters and Ph.D.s working at Wal-Mart and McDs b/c there's nothing out there for them. Americans aren't lazy and entitled - they've been forced into dependency. And who benefits - big business who get more tax breaks, more CEO Golden parachutes, more oil subsidies. And believe me, for every dollar that is spent on keeping a person from starvation and homelessness...that dollar goes right back into the pocket of the 1% in the form of rent, utlities, and food. Get.....A.....Clue!!”

You don't understand on what basis one is eligible for SSI and SSDI?
And Obama policies has no bearing on this issue?
And please go tell this to the Wall Street Banksters from Citigroup, JPMorganChase, Goldman Sucks, and the NY Federal Reserve Bank that run the Obama government from the WH Chief of Staff down!”
“Why is anyone still reporting what she has to say? They didn't even allow her at the Repub convention for goodness sake! To see her still on the HP front page is just annoying. Shut up and go back to Alaska....no one cares what you think of our POTUS!”
“I'm dismayed this man is still on TV every weekday AND people still send him money. So much for believing one can become older and wiser! He just gets stupider and stupider every day. I'm sure if he actually met Jesus Christ he'd accuse him of being a socialist organizer!!”
“This is a very depressing article. I thought I'd lived past having racist teachers subversively ruining the minds of children. I certainly had a couple in HS and College whose racism wasn't even thinly veiled. AND more than a couple that were completely incompetent. I'm happy children are reporting this to their parents who are forcing school departments to address the problem. This teacher sounds like he has some serious mental health problem.”
“Nancy Grace is beyond vile. She's like a medieval torturer who rubs salt in the wounds of those presumed guilty. She feels no personal responsibility as she considers herself a crusader for justice. What she doesn't consider is that no one person should be allowed to be judge, jury, and executioner. She is the modern day voice of the lynch mob. She's going to target the wrong person one day who will not care about their own personal fortune and is not going to take it out on themselves..but on Nancy.”
“Agreed. Seems and intelligent and thoughtful young person. And like many of us, our political and social belief system is constantly evolving. It's great he doesn't feel pressured to parrot a beliefs he no longer holds. I'm sure we'll hear from him again!”
“The issue is that the big money health insurance carriers have already been controlling things. They profit while not actually providing health care...they stand over the shoulders of health care providers dictating what treatments patients will receive and who should receive them. They corrupt our legislators with their lobbying funds. And I know b/c I WAS a multi-line underwriter for many years. Health insurance companies couldn't give a fig about actual health care...it's a business for profit pure and simple.”
