Apparently, NBC does not want to be a party to perpetuation of this particular misdirection, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating w/o any substantiation, that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years.

Good for you NBC! There is hope for you yet!

Big Bird Wants Out of Campaign Ad
Sesame Street isn’t amused. Sesame Workshop, a nonprofit educational organization that produces and owns the show, issued a statement Tuesday saying “we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. "We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”

You continue to bash people like Romney and the Koch Brothers but how about all the Bill Mahers and Obamas out there? They don't seem to have contributed anything to society. The sad thing is to realize that liberals are led to believe that they can blame everything on the "rich" by, guess who. The rich themselves! How does that work?? Yet if they get rich then they'll keep it to themselves. We already know Romney gave far more to charity than Obama so that argument is out of the question.

And if you want to go into it, the tax bracket system we have is not very constitutional as the Constitution states the taxes must be applied evenly and as we all know that's not the case. Read:
(1) Why would I reprint parts of your post to which I was not responding???
(2) Become a Libertarian constitutional lawyer! I'm not interested in those discussions about settled law.

(3) I blame the rich for what they do, not being rich! When I was in Tennessee I found out about a guy who regularly bought books for every kid in the county he lived in until he was put away for being the biggest drug dealer in Eastern Tenn. Romney giving money to The Church of Latter Day Saints is his business, but it doesn't mean he's a great person to me! I wonder how much of Romney's money was used in Calif. to fight Gay's being able to marry after he got a tax break for a contribution! At least after 1978 they are working on reducing their prejudice against Blacks!

[QUOTE=ymeski56;2090202]Another unwilling participant on Obama Campaign Ads:

As you very well know, PBS and others take those positions not because they are against Obama, but because they have to be very careful not to seem partisan! In PBS's case they could lose their funding for that reason.... before Romney can take it away and deprive poor kids of educational TV! You know how PBS is considered a little too Liberal..... which of course has nothing to do with it! Certainly that is one of the first places we have to stop the massive outpours of tax dollars rather than looking at EXXON, G.E. or the Military Industrial Complex and it's profit making wars that accomplish so very, very much!!

Frankly, I think "Big Bird" is better example of Americanism than "Off Shore Account Mitt" and will cost us a lot less tax money!

Seems you are still interested in ranting about settled law. Otherwise you wouldn't keep spewing hate about the DOMA or Citizens United

1: Because you didn't take into account the rest of my post which backs up the first part. See here:

The problem is, it leaves the students in debt for a good part of their life even with that valuable skill.

Another thing that irks me is the way scholarships are given out. You can be a great football player but a horrible student and get a full ride. Now there are the kids who have 4.0+ that might get some full rides. What about the 3.5-4.0 kids with no athletic talent? They get left to pay for the loan themselves because often times their parents make enough money to not qualify for gov't assistance.

And to finish, education is a state issue, not federal. Every state is different and even within each state each county is different.
2: You seem QUITE interested in discussions about settled law the rest of the time until it doesn't suit you. Such as the very same tax laws...

3: So is someone not allowed to give money for something they believe in? I'm sure all the people giving money for the gay rights movement sure thinks you can. Your post is like the pot calling the kettle black...

Doesn't seem to slow the Obama campaign from using them for their own ends.

Obviously you are very, very impressed with your knowledge, so vote for Romney and keep the 18% of GNP going to the 1% he represents! Your choice in a democracy, but something is not socialism just because you choose to call it socialism. You can continue to consider all the people around the world that make different choices than Americans stupid socialists, but please save your time acting as if I don't know anything! It's a little insulting just to win points in bickering!

You should have caught on by now that my posts are not for you or MR.FX4! Don't bother responding to someone so poorly informed as myself!

My posts are for those people who read the thread, but don't get involved in it! Some might consider another person's experience or point of view as an alternative to all the scare tactics and propaganda to protect corporate profits creating the prejudicial attitudes around today.

Most of the people in the 47% are not as useless and dependent as Gov. Romney thinks. Everything you or Romney doesn't agree with shouldn't be labeled socialism just to frighten people, and all the intelligence and good ideas of the world are not found in the U.S.! Our country is declining largely because so many people are being conned by all the scapegoats to hate presented to them by the 1% or less of Americans who hold at least half of the entire wealth of our country and want even more! You will see in history that Socialism and Communism have no interest to the common man until a country becomes owned and controlled by the wealth of 1%! If you don't like Socialism and Communism, don't excuse having a ruling class of 1% (or even less) that can buy our government and control our country with so called "campaign contributions that are actually bribes"! That's what to fear.... and it is here!
So you are telling me that YOU can repeat YOUR opinion long enough that others should believe it ? If you could actually back up what you are putting out there than it would not be an issue ? Maybe you don't like me pulling a page out of your play book ? I don't care if you tell me you like Barney because he is purple and makes you laugh ! I am totally ok with that. But if you try to tell me that he is blue and has a Harvard law degree, then you better start backing it up !

Like it or not. The minute that you,I ,or anyone else puts something out there,we are then judged by our peers ! You have been judged repeatedly, and been proven wrong on multiple accounts! We all have more in common than what you think, but you repeatedly fail to look ! If your peer group tells you that you are wrong, then you can stop and take a hard look at what you are being told? Or walk through the door to another group the minute that your swollen head will fit through the door opening ?

Thus far I have restrained from stereotyping and generalizing others as you like to do. You have left me with so many opportunitys to do so, but I have restrained myself from doing so as to not insult those of you from CA who may not be looking at the world through a glass belt buckle ?

I have a hard time believing that you actually were a teacher, considering the way that you have come across in this thread ? I having a hard time believing that you could survive to tell the tale ?

Seems to me that you have some serious issues with those that have achieved some form of financial success ? Perhaps you should take a hard long honest look at yourself ?

You see the state of our education system and the ideas coming out of it and have a hard time believing that this extreme leftist indoctrination is real?

Obama and Shelia Jackson lee graduated Harvard, HARVARD! Obama was appointed editor of the law review without publishing a single paper. We see the extreme progressive (borderline communist) ideas coming out of our learning institutions and you question if a man with these ideas was a teacher? He was the leader of the legalized extortion organization(union), i think that explains much of the problem we are seeing in our youth today

Best bumper sticker of all time:

"If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you werent a RACIST, vote for Romney in 2012 to prove youre not an IDIOT."

Romney gets my vote for a few simple reasons:

1. Im a social conservative. I do not believe gays should marry. I do not believe in abortion.

2. Im a fiscal conservative. Obama inherited a train heading in the wrong direction and all he did was FLOOR the accelerator pedal and ran this train off the track into the ground.





And a couple quick notes to those who are "not voting."

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."-- Thomas Jefferson.

"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."-- Abraham Lincoln

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."-- Thomas Paine

You cannot simply sit by the sidelines and expect to always enjoy freedom.......... get involved.
