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

Keep in mind that JFK, LBJ, Carter, Clinton and Obama represent "the Republican way". Democrats owning the House for over 40 years is also "the Republican way".

See, saying dumb stuff is easy. Lies are just as easy. Jax knows that too and lives by it. However, no one is as stupid or inane as Normensa.

Youth of Alpena:

If you could care less how stupid you sound or appear, you too can age as foolishly as Normanus has. Start now.

Ayn Rand was a Communist, and these folk are Randian. So, who is the true 'commie'?

Conservatism has never worked, Jax. We know it, but there are many duped Americans who believe it works because they listen to purveyors of Conservatism, and the empty rhetoric spewed by them. Simply cutting taxes DOES NOT lift the economy, it hurts the economy by creating and lifting income disparity.60 plus years of the Republican way has gutted the middle class in America, and the American middle class is the salt of the earth. Voodoo economics has NEVER worked, and never will.

As far as a balanced budget, once again I say we had a balanced budget, but your side (conservatives) scuttled it. And having a balnced budget amendment would require tax increases, which Grover Norquist has forbidden Republicans to have one.

When has conservatism ever worked?

Sorry about your taxes. When you pay your taxes, do you use a road to get to the bank? Wonder how that got paid for? It's a mystery to conservatives.

What is good for Americans is good for all Americans. Conservatism works. Socialism fails. If you cannot show people even that, you cannot show them anything. Get the heck out of town and go home with your head hanging in shame. You're a bunch of failures, and posterity, if there is any, will know your notorious names as multi-generational abusers.

Amen.

Not only do politicians treat our tax money like it's Monopoly money, they treat it like it's theirs and they get to decide how much we can keep from what we earn. They also treat our kids and grand kids like they were Monopoly pieces. It's like a game to them where nothing is real. Not our money, not our kids, and not our guaranteed freedoms.

I don't get to pay my taxes every April with Monopoly money. I have to pay it with very real, albeit shrinking, USD. It hurts, and there are much, much, better things I'd rather do with it than sending it to that giant incinerator called DC.

I want our side to jackhammer the importance of a balanced budget amendment. I want work requirements attached to welfare, even if that means every city has highways and bi-ways we can eat off of. People need to work, not retire at the age of 17.

And what's with the reaching out to this group and that group, ad nauseum? Why not consider reaching out to this group: Americans!

Netan(Yahoo) is trying his mightiest to drag America into HIS paranoia. We are the only allies Israel has, and they are exploiting that NOW on Television. Israel is a rogue nation.

So much for the cynical Romney/Trump phony hysteria over Jeep moving to China...Chrysler announced today their plans to manufacture 500,000 JEEPS annually IN TOLEDO. Not Toledo Spain, but Toledo Ohio! I suppose if Romney was elected, Jeep would have to move operations to China, to build them cheaper for the corporate elite.

Thank you Steve Fletcher, for pointing my way to the Threat Assessment, which I also have read. If the information is available to ALL of us, what are theey keeping FROM us. As in the false information we were fed as a justification for the Phony Iraq War, the assessment has all the earmarks of propaganda, although threats are real. Pearl Harbor type situations like you mentioned about all our carriers (11, still ten more than anyone else) IS a threat, and why they are all in one place is beyond reason. I am concerned about Mother Earth in all this threat assessment, as natural disasters will affect us, without question, as opposed to some nebulous threat by a rogue nation or terror organization. America has all we need to protect ourselves, and perhaps some goodwill instead of belligerence is called for. We tie ourselves to Israel, so closely that we lose purchase in the Muslim world.

So Obama travels to Israel, and what we see on teevee is Netan~Yahoo bloviating about "thanx to America for the kind donation to our 'Iron Dome' defense system". 'Defense' as in oppressing Palestinians. Sequester my finger, you swine!

...One of the clueless advocates of the immoral WAR in Ieaq, one pressed by the Cheney mob, which cost 4,500 American lives, along with an estimated 32,000 wouded physically (they are still not getting the care they paid for), as well as untold mentally wounded, A WAR which added THREE TRILLION dollars to America's credit card. Add at least 100,000 dead Iraqis, mostly non~combatant, as well as over ONE MILLION displaced by the Illegal, Immoral Iraq WAR. Benghazi my royal arse!

WHAT is a "Jingleheimerschmitt", anyway, sounds like a nazi. Is he deaf, dumb, and blind like the resident LIAR, one shrill.

What I heard was snarky sarcasm, in the place of thoughtful opinionating. More like a junior high pep rally than a policy setting confab. Then, you add the Donald, and the whole show becomes totally clownish.

Here's a humorous article.

*******news.yahoo****/republicans-detail-plan-embrace-diversity-130452260.html

The GOP should start with treating all non-white males and all females of all sexual preferences like humans, then maybe their image will improve.
