Too bad there is no cure for stupidity. The people who voted Rep. are either crooks or looking up their posterior for their brains. The Rep. agenda is to destroy the middle class and obliterate the poor.
I agree he acted as a thug in the robbery. But, shot 6 times? Nothing suspicious about that? No backup? I agree sometimes the cops are often "pigs" and militarization of local police suspends all our civil rights. The same behavior was endured, in the protests last year, that started on Wall Street and spread across America. The 99% knows it is being exploited; while the naive and vested protest. The first, because they are duped and believe they are or will be (someday invited to a private lunch with the President) or the second, who are grubbing with both fists. BTW, I am white.
I just voted with old codger and cancelled your vote. P.S. How are you gonna feel when you get to be SS age and there is NONE.
Most of the nitwits, on this board, think they are Mr. Howell. They are more likely like Archie Bunker.
You want to know why F is not going anywhere? Alan M who saved the company got hundreds of millions in options and stock. The Ford family did the same. So...no dividend increase and the same stock price as two years ago.
Utterly ludicrous. O wanted to improve infrastructure. Reps block that. O wants to provide one payer health. Reps block that. O wants to expand SS. Reps want to end SS. Public education is disappearing for charter schools and free public school is ending. Reps didn't want to help the auto companies. O got GM and C back on their feet and put thousands back to work. Unemployment is half of what GWB left him. Worse? I don't think so.
Me a mental midget? Who do you think controls the banks and Wall Street firms and the Fed? Guess what? It's not Democrats. Who do you think is shipping all manufacturing overseas? Who doesn't want to have regulation for pollution and is raping the land? I would venture to say....Republicans.
Yet, they are the ones who rely on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other public utilities and services. Even with this knowledge they blame everything on "immigrants and ghetto moms", AS the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, the least educated and most reliant on government assistance, are more worried if a woman chooses an abortion and if they get to keep their guns.
Obama has faced nothing but opposition from the Republicans. Think of the sequester. What happened to the anti-trust acts. Republicans just ignore them.
Do you think "Citizens United" is fair. It will only get worse.
Have you given any thought to sick people? Do you know what a fixed income is? Most retirees live on a fixed income (Social Security). SS just raised the monthly check for 2015. That is a 1.7% raise. All I can buy is rent and drugs.
Not just immigrants. The gap in wealth is widening daily. SS is not in pace with inflation. Health care costs are astronomical. GMO's in our food is not ok. Nor is fracking. This is not about "too much government", It is about not enough government.
