Default Romney's greatest self inflicted wound

What maybe Romney's greatest self inflicted wound is based on the same same demeaning, prejudicial attitude so many on the Far Right have. That is needing to very much believe that the Black woman in the video represents a large % of Americans. Romney made it all too clear that he looks down his nose at 47% of America that voted for Obama because they are dependent losers! It wasn't ungracious, mistaken wording! He went on to clarify and expand on his prejudicial views towards the 47% of Americans of which I am part. A cell phone let us see the real Romney and it wasn't pretty, but then he's got over a month to Etch-A-Sketch another personality that is less repugnant! Unfortunately when you spit in the face of 47% of America they may not forget it!

I hope most young people in this country are smart enough to chose Medicare, Social Security, supporting education and the rebuilding of the infrastructure of this country! I hope they reject constant, idiotic war to line the pockets of the Military Industrial Complex and watching the stock market go up as unions are killed off and the "real" buying power of the American work sinks lower and lower! Maybe the young voter will catch on that people don't die in the streets in Great Britain, Israel and other countries that spend only 8% of GNP covering all their citiizens with socialized medicine while we approach a cost of 19% of GNP for a "profitable" mess that leaves many without healthcare fearful they will be ruined if they get sick!

Look at who is getting more and more wealthy in this country. The facts are clear if you look at IRS statistics and the Stock Market, rather than to listen to the propaganda of those whose pockets are getting lined! Money is going to the top, and the working man is losing "real" buying power every year while it is blamed on scapegoats from Liberals to immigrants (the 47%) rather than on where the money is actually going!

Get our troops and our noses home and spend our tax dollars on Americans rather than giving it to the Military Industrial Complex that benefits from constant war! After all these years, I'm still waiting to hear how the Vietnam War benefited us and was worth all the Americans and Vietnamese that died and suffered for the politicians with all the answers and the companies that benefited from that usless war that we lost! Is the world all Communist now, that we lost that war!

So who made money in the completely unnecessary Iraq War? Remember the name Haliburton?

Halliburton Moves Its Headquarters Abroad

By SONYA CRAWFORD
March 11, 2007

The much-maligned defense contractor Halliburton is moving its corporate headquarters from Houston to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The draw is obvious. Dubai's friendly tax laws will add to Halliburton's bottom line. Last year, it earned $2.3 billion in profits.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-N.H., called the company's move "corporate greed at its worst." He added, "This is an insult to the U.S. soldiers and taxpayers who paid the tab for their no-bid contracts and endured their overcharges for all these years. At the same time they'll be avoiding U.S. taxes, I'm sure they won't stop insisting on taking their profits in cold hard U.S. cash."


Waxman's committee estimates that Halliburton, once headed by Vice President Cheney, has received contracts valued at an estimated $25.7 billion for its work in Iraq.

No disrespect intended, but I have followed your rules and I made the direct connection to my point and still trying to keep it upbeat !

So based on HIS last post I think that it is fair that you stop censoring and bring it back up for discussion? The point is valid !

We are big boys here , so if you can not take the heat, get out of the kitchen ?

BS flag has been thrown !

I addressed Opinyawns 47% rant this morning, and bumped back up for discussion ! Within the rules set forth mind you!

Apparently we are now censured ? God forbid we offend somebody with the facts ?

The 47% comment wasn't him "looking down" on them. It was him saying that it's not worth his time to campaign to them because the chances are slim that many of them will vote for him. How hard is that to understand??

Also, Halliburton is a major oil service company which might explain why they ADDED a second headquarters to Dubai because, well, Saudi Arabia has quite a bit of oil

Here's a link:

Well since you brought it up....

My last post was not about you. It was about some reported post we had earlier.

I am telling you right now.... To drop the nonsense... Leave opinyawn out of your thoughts. Or you will get 24 hours off. You are hung up on him, He's telling his thoughts... You tell your thoughts... They do not have to match..

Its over.... If you cannot get that in your head.......... Stay out of this thread.

And who has holdings of Halliburton stock? Why, the California State Teachers Retirement System, among others.

CalSTRS owns quite a bit of Halliburton, and other defense contractors, if this page is any indication.

I am still interested in what appears to be the double standard of bashing the same companies that provide income to union retirement plans, as I mentioned way back in post #649. Does anyone have a good explanation for that?
