Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Add Detroit to the list of subjects RS knows nothing about.

I wonder why RS keeps going to England for sources? Are there plenty of anal right wing conservative distorters here?

Rshrill, the NEW Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who sees a 'commie' behind every bush, every tree, every comment by a person he disagrees with. You need to get a life, brother. (.)(.)

And those that disagreed with the one-and-only-one-speech were not only ignored, ridiculed, and shouted down, but were killed, imprisoned, or sent to work in Gulags.

That's the "Utopia" Jaxocommie desires. Why? No dissent? No free speech? No individuality?

No thanks. Go to H-e-l-l by yourself. I and scores of millions of us will not follow.

(London Daily Mail) "A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.

The rebound from 2012's record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores."

I wonder if this London paper has enough commie readers for Jax to accept it. I wonder what the % of commie readers has to be for him to OK it as a source?

Who cares. He has no credibility. He's proven that. If your paper is not run by a card carrying commie, he dismisses it. Only propaganda for him. You know, lefty approved news. Like Pravda from back in the day, when commie countries were failing left and uh, left.

Can't you picture Jaxofibber kneeling in the middle of a Continental Detroit, nothing but skin stretched over bone as he utters his last words. "Another ten trillion would've done it....gasp. Dead.

Let's build a Jaxomonument to stupidity and suicide. We'll build it out of dirt and broken up concrete.

"Obama did an $800 billion dollar stimulus in today's dollars, 30% of which was tax cuts." (Jaxoditherer)

So, you're saying tax cut is a "stimulus"? I agree. The spending though, not so much.

If I wanted to see commies tripping all over themselves repeating stupid lies to each other I would go read some old Soviet papers.

List. The. Tax. Increases. You. Stupid. Lying. Commie.

Posted 469 days ago.


There ya' go. Attack the messengers when they disagree with your preconceived, sycophantic notions. Commies only listen to other commies. Right Goebbels?

List the 11 tax increases. List them! Make your point and list them. I would like to see them. Would you like to list them?

Posted 469 days ago.

Google 'Reagan increased taxes 11 times', stand-by for your computer to overheat.

Posted 469 days ago.


Now top scientists are saying we are in a period of global cooling until 2050 or so. Maybe a new "little ice age".

Al Gore: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid all in one.

Obama got a Nobel Prize for simply existing, and Al Gore won an academy award for lying to the entire world.

Lying to the entire world, a democrat "quality". I blame it all on a YouTube video, don't you?

"According to a MORI survey conducted in 2005, 64% of Telegraph readers intended to support the Conservative Party in the coming elections.[3]"

We get it, we'll add this to your list of bogus sources.

Who cares about the top tax rate? We get it, he cut taxes for the wealthy, and Republicans canonized him for it. Reagan cut two trillion in hot checks when a trillion was a trillion. Obama did an $800 billion dollar stimulus in today's dollars, 30% of which was tax cuts, and Republicans are still whining about it. Give Obama two trillion in stimulus and watch America take off.

The results we have seen during the Obama administration are exactly the type one should expect and predict from Fedzilla run amuck socialist theory and application. It ***** the very life out of business and individuals and places Government Uber alles, while pitting every group against every other. That's called divide

Put every dime you have in the stock market Jaxogoebbels. Go down with the ship. Make sure you grease your robot joints very well first. Salt water is quite rough on tin men. But, at least you have a heart. Oz gave you one. It's an inanimate time piece. Keep looking at it. You might notice that time is short, but I doubt it.

Have a blissful day.

Reagan just happened to double the size of the economy while doing it. J.F.K spoke eloquently about lowering taxes too during his term. That was back when even democrats were still relatively free-market capitalists.

Not even if the same universe so as to compare.

Those "useless weapons systems" won the cold war, putting The Soviet Union in the poor house trying to keep up. They are now more into Capitalism, and have some of the richest people on the planet living and working there. Israel is really appeciating some of those useless weapoins sytems too, as are we.

I keep hearing about 11 Reagan tax increases. The top rate was 70% when he went in and 28% when he went out? There were 15 different rates, he consolidated that down to 4 rates only. How does that equate to 11 tax increases? List them. List them. List them. Do you understand the phrase, list them? Then list them!

Obama has added 6 trillion to the debt! Only a googoo eyed sycophant on dummy steroids can look at any combination of numbers using any matrix or category under the sun to see that the Reagan administration kicked Obama's a-s-s straight across the board. Every President has kicked Obama's ass.

My source is listed right after the quote for the global warming article. It's still there now if you'll look. The Telegraph, from the UK. Ok liar? Is that not a commie enough source for you to believe? And who gives a darn what you believe anyway. You are so chomping at the bit to believe there is some whacked out version of virtue on your side, you'll believe anything they say while wearing blinders. Wow, what a sycophant.

Wouldn't it be nice to have only a 256 billion deficit in a whole year? Obama's has been a trillion every single year he's been President! With nothing to show for it other than scads of bankrupt energy co's who went under dragging our tax money down with them. Nothing to show for it but big fat billions of dollars in losses and 6 trillion in added debt. 90 trillion in future liabilties.

Now compare the unemployment rates of now and then, straight across the board, including hispanics and blacks, young and old.

RS's source for the global ice cap growing therefore global warming is a hoax is, you guessed it, The Washington Times.

Posted 469 days ago.

"The nominal national debt rose from $900 billion to $2.8 trillion during Reagan's tenure, an average national budget deficit per year of $237.5 billion, as compared to an average national budget deficit per year of $56.9 billion during Carter's tenure."

Mostly for useless weapon systems. There was also about a trillion pumped into the economy by the deregulated S&L's which ultimately the taxpayers had to bail out.

RS leaves out those numbers in an attempt to convince anyone other than himself that Reaganomics worked. Reagan had to raise taxes 11 times after his initial tax cuts or America would have gone bankrupt.

Why did RS leave those numbers out? He might not have on purpose, because we have seen over the years RS is a disaster with numbers.
