Actually, in the world of grammar and language, bold print stands for emphasis. Italics stands for quotes. ;)

But here's another one: "HUD kicks 101yr old woman out of her home!"

huffington post:

Texana Hollis was evicted Sept. 12 and her belongings placed outside after her 65-year-old son failed to pay property taxes linked to a reverse mortgage and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development foreclosed on the home.

Two days later, the department said she could return. But now, HUD said it won't let Hollis move back in because of the house's condition. She had lived there about 60 years.

Doesn't Detroit have tax relief for the elderly? From age 80 or 85 on in most states a property owner isn't required to pay property taxes. This is the way HUD is gobbling up property in many states from the elderly and disabled, I guess?

conservative said... Over 1 million abortions performed annually and estimates of over 50 million since Roe vs Wade!

That's only because they started keeping count. Remember when abortions were illegal no one can really say how many were carried out. The numbers could have been much much higher. I know when I was in high school decades ago, none of the female stundents wanted to miss school on a Monday because rumors would start to fly that they'd had the coathanger job done to them over the weekend. Meaning they'd had an abortion where someone used a coathanger to abort the fetus.

happywithnewbulbs said... The poster above said "the sole purpose" which means that every person with power must be intent on using it for evil.

That's actually a quote the person was referencing. I've seen it in a book and other reading material about power, people in power and how power corrupts. I think that's why the poster place the the sentence in italics. That's usually a sign someone is quoting, and it is not the actual words of the poster.

But then again, how often do we see people in positions of power who do not abuse and take advantage of their position?

conservative said... Depression era movies and pictures often showed people carrying placards for a job. For the first time in my life I have quite often seen the same as I travel

Now, now, conservative. You know you're lying. Those people carrying placards for a job have been around as far back as anyone can remember. They're called homeless or day workers. Anything, everything you conservatives can dream up to blame on the president you'll try. If baby-conservative pooped his pants instead of going to the potty, you'd say President Obama was the cause for junior-conservative not being fully potty trained.

All people aren't evil. However, it only takes one evil person in a position of power and authority to bring untold suffering to many. Hitler comes to mind. So does Idi Amin. Joseph Stalin and a few others. Evil will always exist in the world. It's the evil that man in power and with authority is capable of committing that is the problem.

rick1 said... davisss13, I was only speaking about Alpo. I appreciate all former and current members of our military.

Just a reminder: The GOPers who've suddenly come to love all things military since Obama became president, despised the military when Bush was in office. When military men and women complained about unsafe, dangerous and faulty equipment they were being forced to use GOPers and their supporters told'em to suck-it-up. Wasn't it Rushie Limbaugh who said "they volunteered didn't they" when military men and women complained? Then Bumpastilskin rumsfeld threaten court martial against any Marine, Airman, Soldier, Navy person who got on camera and complained to the media about unsafe and dangerous equipment and conditions in Iraq. Bushie was too busy tripping over pretzels and bumping his head to give a %$#@! one way or the other. All your right wingnut conservatives were attacking the military under Bush. Now, all of a sudden it's WE LOVE OUR MEN AND WOMEN FIGHTING FOR O'R FREEDOMS? Sorry, no one with any real sense is buying that fake crap!

chattanoogatennesseeusa said... Looks like Gingrich is gaining in S.C. I guess it's a Bill Clinton thing, huh??? attack on Gingrich by Democrats about cheating is hypocracy

actually, ctu, the attacks are coming from Gingrich own GOP camp. The same went for Herman Cain. They got rid of the lone fly-in-da-buttermilk first. The Dems haven't had to so much as lift a finger. The GOP are vaporizing and gobbling up one another. LOL!

happywithnewbulbs said... aidehua, I believe it says sister, not daughter. But if the personal character and activities of a president are not important, what does that make Newt Gingrich's own actions regarding another president?

I have to agree with you on this one, hwnb. After all, wasn't it the GOP who ran on a ticket of wholesome "Christian" and family values and morals? Didn't they accuse Clinton of lacking in those areas and use those very same reasons have him impeached? They've painted themselves into a corner by pointing fingers when they had so many skeletons in their own closet.

Randy Lions should read the truth about voter ID fraud:

The trend throughout the United States is to enact new laws that will make photo IDs a prerequisite for participating in the democratic process. Proponents of voter ID laws use voting in lieu of dead people as the main example of fraud, while opponents point out that there is no evidence of widespread fraud and significant evidence that such laws make it more difficult for students and those in lower-income brackets to vote. Lawmakers in South Carolina used the accusation that 957 dead people voted in the "recent elections" as proof of the need for voter ID laws—a claim the New York Times' Andrew Rosenthal points out is very poorly supported. (The Justice Department has blocked the measure in South Carolina, so voters on Saturday will not need a photo ID to vote.)

But surely by accident, O'Keefe has actually given use some extremely valuable data about the cost-benefit of trying to vote on behalf of a cadaver. Of the handful of people O'Keefe sent into voting centers to vote as dead people, at least one was recognized as being an imposter. It is unclear how much trouble he or the rest of Project Veritas will end up in since they did not actually cast the ballots they obtained; TPM reports that merely obtaining the ballots fraudulently could violate federal law as well, even if no voting took place. Project Veritas refused to tell me how many people participated in their stunt, but I can be extremely conservative and say that voting for a dead person carries at least a 1 in 100 risk of being recognized and possibly ending up in legal trouble.

@happywithnewbulbs said... So one person let a house burn down. The next person hasn't fixed the house up yet. Who do we consider the failure

We must pity the loons, hwnb. These are the same loons who would blame the firefighters for water damage to their home where the arsonist is the one who started the fire. They are to be pitied. :(
