DEMO, I am a sick person? Really? Just because I ensure that you stop harassing others, that makes me sick? Nice try to shift attention but you will be monitored as you have been since 2008. This is what you get for telling me and others to get lost. You P 0 sheeeeeeeet
BILLION THE LYING STUPID IDIOT POS: You remain the king of aliases. I only have one id and do rate some of the posts but can only rate a post once. It is obvious that the other posters do not agree with your constant lies and harassment. You are a very sick person and should seek medical help before it is too late.
DEMO, I see you brought out your alias again. When will we see the 20 thumbs down? You are watched to ensure you behave on this board. Any deviation even by an inch from the rules, will bring a swift punishment.
jmdbro: You are so right because BILLION THE LYING STUPID IDIOT POS has never controlled this board and never will. His chief job in life is to post lies and harass me. He is a very sick person and needs medical attention.
Who is this fool who thinks he controls this board? You are FREE to post, because he says so? He controls not a thing here, the "power" is only in his feeble mind. What a loony-tune! LOL LOL LOL
Screamdoctor, I don't think what you say is true but you are free to post your opinions here and the resident idiot DEMO will NOT be allowed to censor your posts. I believe the bank's deposit base will continue to grow. If what you say is occurring, I am sure the bank will address it.
Expect bank depositors to leave the bank in droves once they get wind of the corrupt policy of rapid fire penalties that result in follow on penalties leveled before the prior penalty notice arrives in the mail. Pure, unadulterated corruption.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I am no lawyer and that is why I said it seemed illegal, and not that its illegal. From the perspective of an ordinary citizen, I feel there is something there. The official charges are abuse of official capacity and coercion of public servant. U seem to think that because a Dem was behind the indictment, that it smacks of politics. But when Perry, a Republican tries to armtwist a Dem, thats ok.
Billion said: "It does appear illegal what he did"
Can you take the time to quote or reference the citation in law or legislation that limits the Governor of Texas' rights and prerogative to apply a veto? Give a little more meat on the bones of your "appear illegal".
Do you think some of President Obama's executive orders may also "appear illegal what he did"?
billion, I have given up reading the whole thread, but did you get around to reading the article that I copied?
google : "Political Payback: Rick Perry Indicted in Power Struggle with Democrat-Controlled DA Office "
There are obvious shortcomings with grand juries. But to paint this as a politics simply because the prosecutor is Dem, is a bit overboard. Both parties got loonies but Democrats tend to be more fair,honest, with a tendency to do the right and just thing. Let the legal process play out before casting judgement.
I would expect you to jump on the band wagon and you do not disappoint. It is a fact of life that grand juries are manipulated by prosecutors. Their session is not subject to the normal court of justice/trial protections nor does the prosecuter need to worry about "shadow of doubt" or ability to confront or cross-examine. And Grand Juries historically take the cop out that they are only bringing the case to trial and if the accused is innocent, then he can prove it there, no harm done. If the prosecutor were a Republican or without political bias, I might agree. To argue "abuse of power" over the use of a legitimate veto, regardless of reason, is to play politics. And certainly on a par with Gov Perry's politics in the withholding of budget dollars when she refused to step down. But the Governor did not tar her with a bogus felony threat. It is a fact that she was DUI and not a rumor.
Jim Jeffords, who shifted the balance of power in the Senate when he bolted from the Republican Party in 2001, died on Monday.
The former Vermont lawmaker had been in declining health and died at a military retirement center in Washington, according to a one-time aide, Diane Derby.
He was 80.
Jeffords was a veteran member of the House before moving to the Senate in 1989, where he was one of the most liberal Republicans. Jeffords embraced issues like education and the environment.
Years later, many in the party believed he single-handedly sank a sweeping tax cut package proposed by then-President George W. Bush, forcing the White House to negotiate a smaller deal with Democrats.
Political tensions boiled over and Jeffords became an independent in 2001 and caucused with Democrats. The drastic step shifted Senate control to Democrats. He left the Senate in 2007.
President Barack Obama said in a statement that Jeffords never lost the "fiercely independent spirit that made Vermonters, and people across America, trust and respect him" and that he "voted his principles, even if it sometimes meant taking a lonely or unpopular stance."
Hey board: Maybe you did not see that billion replied twice to my post and yahoo has deleted both of them. When will ever learn to stop his constant harassing?
BILLION THE LYING STUPID IDIOT POS: Next time I suggest you read what I posted before you make a reply. "mr.s: billion is ashamed of nothing. He has his head in the sand most of the time and will never see two sides of any issue."
YOU STILL REMAIN THE MOST DESPICABLE PERSON ON THIS BOARD.
