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

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

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

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.

No, that what you call it.

Posted 392 days ago.

RS calls feeding the poor taxing the rich. What a Christian.

Posted 392 days ago.

Free, so you are in favor of abortion in certain cases. Why do you and RS have such trouble saying it?

Saying "tax the rich" isn't feeding anyone. It's simply saying, "tax the rich'.

jax - Why is it all or nothing with you? Valid medical reasons have to be respected.

Conservatives are the most charitable group in this world. They feed hundreds of millions. The problem is that big government does not do it efficiently. How many scandals and misappropriations of taxpayer monies will it take before you understand this point?

The point is not abortion or no abortion. The point is abortion for the sake of convenience and the taxpayer paying for it. What is so unreasonable about that? If you believe that a human being is formed at the time of conception then a person does not have the right to take it's life for the sake of convenience.

Nope. I feed him, no strings attached. The Christian thing to do. You? You feed him based upon a measurement. Talk about the conversation at the pearly gates. Jesus: 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me". Me: I fed him. RS: He didn't earn it.

Name an instance where a woman will die if they don't kill her baby.

I'll be waiting for that response while I wait forever for Normakingstuffup's response.

rshill7

No you will not. You will demand that others feed him. As long as there is no skin whatsoever off of your own nose.

Say it RS. "I will let the woman die rather than abort the baby". Just say it, don't be so wishy-washy.

I care quite a bit about my fellow man in need , the difference between me and a conservative is I will feed him without worrying about whether he has done a sufficient amount of labor at a per rate hour to earn the food.
