Glad to see you agree with me.....I love the states and would not want to live anywhere else....but nothing wrong in trying to improve out lives......don't you think?
Healthcare is a growing problem in the US and rwnj want to send us back to the dark ages. If you Wikipedia the countries which have the happiest citizens you will get a list as follows: Denmark,Norway,Switzerland, Sweden, Canada, Finland and Australia in the top 10 all of which their governments provide 100% of their healthcare - completing the list of top10 happiest nations are Netherlands, Austria, and Iceland here the government provides 99.8%-99.9% for healthcare. The US ( before Obamacare) has the 17th happiest citizens and the government provides for 53.1% of healthcare. I found this surprising since I believe we have the highest standard of living but now know not the happiest. We have more cars, better homes, appliances etc. but we can reach the top 10 of citizens who are happy. Why is that?

Entitlements all Government workers from Federal, State, City, Village and Town are the most entitled employees we have. We can reduce out debt if all government workers are given the same benefits as most other employees have. Most corporations by now have defined contribution retirement plans (401k and similar) Most government employees have defined benefits plans which need to be funded. Accordingly, R. Paul, C Schumer, R Perry, H Clinton upon retirement will receive a % of their salary to retire on and non government will receive the balance in the personal 401k etc. If this were changed we would see a real trickle down, my real estate taxes would decrease, my income tax would decrease.....etc etc etc
Can take that ...just hope investors are ready for a big loss when we take an 100 million impairment charge for Los A.......which would mean to me that our project is not as vsluable as the Taca Taca which is being bought.
If you Google Wikipedia you will find the stimulus package cost 831 billion and to date both wars cost 1.1 trillion, including the interest need to borrow to finance the war the cost will be 2.7 trillion by 2017 - Just the factual numbers - of course other sources have both wars cost up to 6 trillion....
Christiegate gets immediate attention because the right wing of the Republican party is afraid he might win the nomination. Ask Perry, Paul etc. - Point in fact Paul filibustered to have FEMA funds to NJ stopped, not because he did not think NJ was deserving, just he wanted to cut equal amount of expenses somewhere else to pay for this. Slap at Christie, did Paul filibuster the same for FEMA funds for hurricane and tornado ravished areas? If he has please let me know when and where.
Asked for one lie Bush made......damn you have a short memory......WMD....Iraq....
I find it interesting you own a German car and not one made in America
wonders if you were #$%$ december 2008 with Dow at 8,776 my IRA is smiling thanks Obama
Again a simple Google finds out Bush was President in 2006 when Maliki took office not Obama. At the same time Maliki stated that Iraq will be able to provide their own security by the end of 2007.
If you took a little time to read and not just listen to Fox, you would know the IRS policy is to back up their work on tapes with those tapes being used again in 6 months to back up current material. They should have been archiving these not backing up. In addition, each computer e mail has a certain capacity of storage when that is reached the user must delete their e mails. Finally when Lerner's computer crashed in 2011, she asked the IT people at IRS to restore the hard drive they could not. The morale to this story is simple Google and find out.
wow your stability needs to be question........do you remember the downfall of the economy under stable Bush.....How about invading a country costing us billions of dollars and loss of lives.....then of course there was Mission accomplished stability with no exit plan and inflicting enough harm to flame religious war between Sunni and Shites.....religious wars are never ending since both sides think God is on their side only if stable Bush knew that......
I finally agree with the Hawker.......but wrong President - in the Too Big To Fail scandal......was a Republican Regain 1987 and before Papa Bush 1988 and later
Regarding Bergdahl, let wait awhile to find out the real truth. Just because Fox found some solders who stated he deserted does not make it true. Hannity whose show went from the 9PM slot to 10PM realizes his ratings are down. Remember when his show was 100% devoted to some rancher in Nevada? What happened to him, who knows who cares feed as much as he could to his listeners until they got feed up. Starting to do that again with Bergdahl.
As far as the trade for Bergdahl, being an outsider with no cards in play seems to me totally lopsided not in the US favor. But maybe those two solders and their parents should be asked if they were captive what would they want done.
1/1/01 -11,000 1/1/08 - 8,776 5/29/14 -16,699 Thank you President Obama, my 401K Plan looks much better since you took over, these amounts are historical data here on Yahoo - The Hawker talks about volume and yes it is down significantly, but my 401K Plan does not rise or fall on volume. Can always find a negative with something. Say Spurs win series but Parker shot only 28% - I could come on Yahoo board and complain about Parkers shooting but who gives a f....., the Spurs won.
