    Before Obama I was getting as much as much as 7 1/2% in interest or dividends before Obama .... Since Obama on my savings I get less than 1/2 % and idiots are telling me I am better off. I am not gullible like BO's followers. On top of that the blankety-blanks are raising my taxes. Shame, shame and a shame. mo

  • to raise my taxes. I am retired on only a modest income. I am thinking seriously of selling out here and relocating to Costa Rica. I understand, from what I can find out on the internet, that a couple with only a$1,000/month income can live reasonably, with$1,500 to $2,000 you can live very well. Only problem is they have poison snakes there. Yuk. JMO

    It is hard to understand how liberals can believe that humans prefer to work hard for their support when someone will give them what they need just because they are alive. Think about it: Would you go to work at your job if some one gave you as much or more to stay home? If you answer 'yes' you need psychiatric help.

    At this time: Martin-5 ; Joe, Elizabeth, Bernny-3; Hillary-1. JMO. I know the democrats have better candidates than this. mo

    Give: Carly - 10 , Give: Hillary - 1. As a life time registered democrat, I cannot vote for Hillary, Joe, Elizabeth, Bernny or Martin. Surely we have better people to run for president. jmo.

    At last the democrat party has brought up a candidate to bump heads with Hillary ... Score IMO: Hillary-1; O'Malley 10. Still either not a great choice for president. Where are all of the good democrats that would be much better candidates? Don't say Joe. MO

    The TX flood this year, idiots believe this is a once in a forever. Severe weather is and has appeared in different spots around the world forever and will continue to do so. Most areas are labeled to have severe/disasterous weather in the 50/100/500/+ pattern. What they tell you if you live in any area, sooner or later you will be hit with very severe weather. The biggest disaster weather was reported by Noah. Think about it. Scientist believed in the 1600-1700 period the new ice age had begun. We have always had severe weather somewhere. AJMO

  • 2 of the greatest freedoms Americans have or are supposed to have. We are growing too many groups that believe we should not have them. What fouls up peoples head is that "Religion" is a personal thing as it should be. But, the 'radicals' in every religious group are ready to kill you if you do not accept their way of believing. The cartoons of moham are anti religious to their group and that group should respect their beliefs and their members not do any thing anti sectarian. Those that do not belong to their group MUST HAVE THE FREEDOM TO DO AS THEY PLEASE. Think about it. Destroy our basic freedoms--shame, shame and a shame. Ajmo

    put there in massive amounts by human by just breathing out. Think how much CO2 is expelled by 7 billion humans. Add to this all of the animals of the world putting theirs in. jmo What do you think Al Gore should start preaching to correct the problem?

    I am convinced that since the end of WW II my party has done more to harm the country than to benefit it. The beginning of the down fall was Singer Sewing Machine leaving the country in early 1946. Their reasons: Rules, Regulations, Laws, Minimum Wage and unions. Since 1945 my party has increased welfare programbenefits to the point that today if you get on welfare you find it very, very difficult to willfully get off of it. Think about it. Welfare provides every thing you need and you do not have to get up in the morning and go to work. Shame, shame and a shame. ajmo

    The cost for law suits like Al's daughter suing NYC $5 million dollars for not watching where she was going and tripped on a crack costs the tax payers almost a billion dollars a year. Law needs to be changed, loser pays court and lawyer costs. jmo.

    Time for you to start your Mandatory World Birth Control Program. You are pointing out India's almost 2 billion people just breathing are putting too much CO2 in the atmosphere and they are melting the streets.. Your observations it is time to limit the birth rate. Just think how much CO2 is put into the atmosphere from the masses of India and China. TV news: China just might be planning a world population reduction by taking over the South China Sea and creating a world nuclear war. Just a thought. Jmo.

    A dollar to a donut there is a gov't rule, regulation or law that you are not allowed to "burp". The past 6+ years has added more of these citizen restrictions than were added from FDR to Obama. It is time for the country to go back to what the constitution mandates. Feds must give back to the states what belongs to the states. mo Let us get the gov't back out of the private sector.

    you have more money to spend but you can only buy less. Look at it logically. In 1935 MW was 25cents/hour, goods and services were geared at this price. The MW was raised to 7.25/hour. A lot more money to spend but you only able to buy less. I am shocked that politicians and economists that went to college and as Freshmen most took the course ECON 101. They did not understand: raise the cost of labor and you raise the cost of all goods and services. Idiots I think. Shame, shame and a shame. mo. Question. When the current cities raised thier MW to 15, did all of those workers that were making 15, did they get a 100% raise? I don't think so.

    time gays cannot marry. Why? The law with the word marriage is defined as one man-one woman. A very simple solution to this world problem is gov't coin a new word 'merriage' and define it as the union of 2 adults. Problem solved. Now the gov't can issue you which ever you want. Both will be defined with the same benefits. Slick Willie was not impeached because of word definition. mo :

    Dept of Labor and Stats reports that only about 2% of American workers work for MW. What MW does for the worker is to reduce the number of jobs. McDonald's, TV news, now has a robot that can turn out 400 fancy burgers per hour.... Take a look at Wal Mart and Target, both now have self check out lanes. Take a look at auto gas stations, no longer do they have attendants-self service. Companies are all losing employees to automation and you think gov't mandating wages is a good thing. How dense you are. Here is something else most of you do not realize. As MW goes up to 15 those that were making 20 are still making 20. MW drives those making more than MW backward. As a rule their wage does not go up to 30. Think about it. mo

    Explain to the gullible people how the unemployment rate is only 5% when there is about 90,000,000 people not working or they are underemployed. I do believe the people feeding you the 5% rate is pulling your leg. jmo.

    just complain about the problems that were created during the Bush reign rather than fix them. BO, Joe, Hillary, Elizabeth, etc were elected or appointed to fix the problems not just complain and let them get worse. Shame, shame and a shame. My brother democrats for the past 6+ years have just been fouling the system up. more and more. jmo.

    Giving her speech/spiel to the S. Carolina women in her fake southern drawl came off as more of a comedian than a serious politician that wants to be the leader of the country.. As a life time registered democrat looking at what may be the top list of democrat candidates, I cannot and will not vote for Hillary, Joe or Elizabeth. I am sure there are some great democrat individuals that would be a good president. Jmo
