What no one has mentioned is that Romney's tax returns provide a perfect example of what happens when you cut taxes for the wealthy. They do not create more jobs with that money. At least not in America. Trickle down economics is the biggest lie of the 20th century. More tax cuts for the wealthy just means that the rich get richer. I am amazed that so many middle class people support the Republican party.
The CEO of Comcast gets 31.1 Million Dollars a year. I guess the editorial writer would like for us to send him even more. At least Harold DePriest spends his money in Chattanooga.
Does anyone think that Amazon would have located here without high speed Internet service? It is called infrastructure. It attracts businesses that create jobs
Gwen after a series of strokes owes two hospitals, no insurance.
Why is it that you self righteous conservatives always believe that people are poor through their own fault? Did you not read the article? Turn off Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, and go down to the metropolitan ministries and see for yourself. It is a myth that the poor are lazy. I am sure that Dennis would love to have full time work. You know anyone hiring?
Why is it that the morality of the right is limited to reproductive issues and sexuality?
The same people who want to post the 10 commandments on the court house walls are now calling George Zimmerman a victim. Remember the one about ‘Thou shalt not kill”? That was God, according to Moses.
Or how about this one? “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” That was Jesus (King James Version, Matthew 5:39)
I thought that all your conservatives were Christian.
Guys and Gals,
I have voted in every election since I was 18, and that has been several. To my recollection, I have always been asked to show an ID. My voter registration card or drivers license. I was then asked to sign my name and the poll worker would compare my signature to the signature on my ID. We have always had to show ID to vote. To suggest that someone is walking into polling places and voting for their dead grandfather is ludicrous. What is different now is that only certain approved photo IDs are accepted. The type of IDs that are accepted are ones that are typically difficult to obtain if you are poor or elderly, especially if they live in large cities and use public transportation. This is a demographic that usually votes Democratic.
My opinion is that the effort is more directed towards voter suppression than towards voter fraud. If you want to commit voter fraud, give me 1 million dollars and access to the source code that counts the votes on those electronic voting machines. I could make the election turn out any way you want.
These laws will ultimately be struck down.
New drinking game. Every time Joneses posts the word 'pathetic' have another drink. I guess I won't be coming back until after 5.
BTW Joneses, you posted 'Oh what sick individuals we have operating the strings attached, like a puppet, to this pathetic excuse you foolish liberals have as a president.'
I hate to break the news to you but Obama is your President too.
If Republicans are really interested in teaching people to be self sufficient, then why are they not supporting public education? The best investment that we can possibly make is in education. Why do conservatives always want to cut funding for public education? You can claim that money will not solve the problems, but lots of people spend tons of money to send their kids to private schools like McCallie, GPS, and Baylor.
Rick Santorum called Obama a snob for wanting to give all kids the opportunity to go to college. So, who really wants to teach a man to fish?
BobMKE, have you really thought about what our society would be like without social security, medicare and medicaid? Are you willing to take your parents and grandparents into your home and pay all their medical bills? How about the neighbor up the road who has no children to care for her?
Chet, You miss the point. We would allow Joneses in, or anyone else who wants to come. We don't require everyone to think alike, in fact we kind of like diversity.
