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

See what I mean?

The "read my lips" promise was broken in a deal with democrats to increase taxes and cut federal spending.

Of course congress took the money, taxes, and kept the goods, spending.

That very scenario is prompted the republican candidates to ALL raise their hand when the offer of 10 to 1 was made during the debates.

You didn't address most of my points but at least it was civil. Back to work, but have the Zimmerman trial on. To be honest, I thought he was guilty, but there is no way a person listening could not have a reasonable doubt after listening to the girlfriend.

I like old Bush, he seemed to be flexible, logical. His son, nope.

Sr. did a good job. You mean he reneged on his "Read My Lips" pledge, don't you?

Free, which organizations are sidestepping, and please don't say Planned Parenthood.

Also, related to the economy under Reagan, the growth of government and the effects on the economy are never instantaneous. Under Bush Sr. you will find some of those effects starting to rear their ugly head. Sr. did a very good job at recognizing them and curbing their effects and by the end of his term the economy started coming back online.

"Walking the walk" to you means lying down. It means being passive and/or weak.

The term "meek" in the original Greek means "power with restraint". It does not mean weak.

The NT also says "he that will not work, shall not eat".

Please continue buying perma-recliners and food for able-bodied persons, and please continue using my money to do it. We can't expect you to do anything personally other than yell at others to do what you refuse to.

You would force others to be virtuous, then somehow claim virtue yourself for forcing them.

Your ideology is twisted. It exacerbates the very problems it purports to solve. It's an ideology that can't think through anything. An ideology which seeks to put our fires using highly flammable mediums.

In other words, it's stupid and unwise.

Under the law abortions cannot be paid for by federal taxpayer dollars, however, there have been multiple organizations side stepping that law and doing it anyways. Come on jaxspp, be fair.

You're right on most accounts. Welfare to work under Clinton made a huge difference. The economy was growing and poverty fell. Not the opposite.

Reagan rebuilt the U.S. military. That cost a lot of money. No arguments. (Primary job of federal government by the way).

The fed has stopped printing money, ending QE to the tune of 85 billion per month. Interest rates are FINALLY poised to move up. That, my friend, means investment outside of the equity markets can resume with some expectation of monetary return on said investment. That means the 4+ trillion dollars sitting on the sidelines may start moving.

As I stated, I don't think routine abortions are paid for at the federal level. Guess I'll have to look it up for you.

That is an excuse jaxspp. Any woman who has a valid medical reason, is the victim of rape or incest can and should be able to be taken care of in the U.S. and the taxpayer, (i.e. medicaid), is allowed to pay for this.

Where in the country is anyone disputing that?

Abortions for the sake of convenience, as a form of birth control, however, should not be paid for by the taxpayer. How is that a radical, evil position?

Please explain with your Econ 101 training how pulling government spending out of the current economy will make the economy grow.

Posted 397 days ago.

Government massively grew during the Reagan years along with the economy growing. That doesn't seem to fit your econ 101 scenario, please explain.

Posted 397 days ago.

See about the talking down to? I get your "drift", but the drift during the Clinton years was that the rising tide was lifting all boats. All classes from rich to poor were rising.

Now with your extensive Econ 101 training, tell us how well trickle-down worked in continuing the Clinton momentum.

Believe it or not I find abortion abhorrent, but, I would rather if a woman chooses to have one it be done in a clean American medical facility instead of a back room or Mexico, which is what Texas is aiming for. As far as paying for it I don't feel like looking it up but at the federal level I don't think a routine abortion is covered, only in cases of rape or incest. I don't know about the state level, I would be surprised.

I talk about RS's religion because I have not seen a scrap of evidence he walks the walk.

I've tried to be kinder, gentler here but ultimately been attacked or spoken down to. I will retaliate.

When poverty grows government wants to do more. Econ 101.

When government wants to do more it grows. Econ 101.

When government grows the private sector shrinks. Econ 101.

You getting my drift?

In the midst of all of this who are the most effective and least scandalized organizations working to eliminate or mitigate the effects of poverty? The non-secular communities. That cannot be disputed.

To say otherwise makes a prima facia case as to the speakers ignorance.

We have been "feeding the poor" from the taxpayer's trough now for 3 generations and poverty has exploded. The "great society" has failed. I would, could, only work if the society in question aspires to be everything it can be. Not propagating a welfare state wherein such a large part of the population becomes dependent upon the other part for it's survival. This condition, ultimately, is doomed to fail. Young people believe that Social Security is a retirement plan; it is not and never has been. It has always been a plan to supplement retirement income. As government grows the private sector is crowded out. Econ 101. When the private sector shrinks poverty grows. Econ 101.

I don't think that I have ever said anything different. My point is that, in these discussions, there is a point of view that all of these questions are a up or down, black or white, yes or no.

Motive and intent is assigned to simple statements that is not there. People are lumped into groups and labeled in a bad way.

A person's faith is derided and he is taunted to the point of verbal retribution.

Tolerance does not exist here. The work is not being done. Argument for the sake of argument advances nothing.

Here is how I say feeding the poor...feeding the poor.
