    Say it ain't so. A dem wouldn't do this.

    Hey tricky Ricky, why no comments about the real subject of the post, her level of foreign investments. If she were a conservative looking for a place in the sun, you would be all over her finances. Why the silence?

    You seem only to focus on any comments about her race and appearance. Does that make you the racist?

    • Again, I have no problem with wealth. I have a problem with wealthy people who feel entitled to special tax breaks and want to give themselves more.

      If I won that Powerball last week, I'd have hundreds of millions squirreled away in offshore accounts just like Romney. What I wouldn't do is think that the best thing for the country is to lower the tax rate on my earnings from those accounts. Understand the difference?

      It is fine to be rich. It is fine to be poor. It is not fine to think you are entitled to special treatment from the government because of your income level. I choose my leaders based on the policies they prefer and I prefer policies based on what I think is best for the nation, not a particular class. Generally speaking, I think a strong middle class provides a sound basis for a strong economy that in the end benefits everyone, rich, poor or otherwise.

      If it was about class, I'd be voting for Lavendar.

        But that is specifically what is going on with those on the government dole. They presume the government and the taxpayers will take care of them in perpetuity and see little reason for the government to change that. If anyone in the government tries, they will vote them out. There are more of them voting than there are rich folks. The recent election results are a prime example.
