Message #122:

^^^^^^^ Thanks for providing more proof that some of the right-wing posters here are bent on posting junk that is very much at odds with the facts. They probably think that if they knowingly post something to attack the president or the Democrats that is not the truth, and their posts go unchallenged by other posters here, then the lies that they post must be factual for the readers here. I have seen that sometimes when they are challenged they claim ignorance as an excuse.

It is a weird debating strategy, to say the least!

Rick Perry is becoming more and more of an after thought. His wife made a silly comment saying he doesn't do well in debates. Well hello that's what elections are all about. How do you think you are ever going to become prez of the U.S. when you can't even do well in debates? That just shows the american people how weak you are, if you can't at least defend your positions on something when someone is questioning you on those things.

You do realize that your post above doesn't do much to counter the point raised by Woobytoodsday, right?

She was correcting your post that stated this in message #95:


Umm..you do realize that Bush's approval rate was higher when he left office than Obamas is now, right?
Do the math.


Now you are responding with polls taken almost 3 years after Bush left office with one of the lowest approval rates in US history. No matter how people feel now about Bush, it won't change the fact that he really screwed things up and the people of this country let him know how they felt about his failure as a steward of the country's interests.

Somehow I feel that you are kind of not finding the right groove for debating the facts here. Compare apples to apples next time.

Perry brought up the "birth certificate" today ... wow he's really desperate now! Even that Bush guy from Florida told him to let it go!

Later, he tried to make a joke of it by saying he was just making a "Trump joke", but then he mentioned something about a college transcript and taxes. If I'm not mistaken, not only the taxes from President Obama was made public but also those of VP Biden.

Why would anyone need his college transcript when it was so apparent that he is smart. How many people can be a Professor of "Constitutional Law" at the University of Chicago Law School?

Perry is done he is at 8% of the polls. Romeny has basicly already won the rep nominee which is why the Obama admin is starting attack ads against him and no one else in the republican running. Cain maybe a feel good story at the moment, but that's as far as it will go. The rep base won't elect him come voting time, because they don't see him as the guy that can pull indy voters to his side in a national election, like Romeny can. I would love to see a Romeny and Cain ticket myself and I think a ticket like that has the best chance for the rep party to win next years election against Obama.

I guess "was" is the key word. He sure hasn't baffled anyone with his brillance since becoming the president. I guess the campaign must have tapped him out.

Perry needs to shut his trap. He's only making people hate him even more. This behavior is probably going to cost him in the next gubernatorial election.

If Obama is any indication then any dumbazz can be a professor at the University of Chicago. If he's such an expert at "Constitutional Law" why does he demonstrate Constitutional illiteracy every time he opens up his mouth?

I dunno..Perry has steadily held a pretty impressive lead in all the polling data available to date. Actually, since the day he announced that he'd run, immediately he flew straight to Americas first choice for the Republican candidate.
Whatever "powers that be" that may back Romney will face a calamitous and likely fatal platform Perry will launch at the most opportune time: Romneys religion.
While in the past, it has been vaguely addressed, he was never a serious threat to any candidate, not serious enough to be held under extreme scrutiny that allows ones religion to be evaluated and investigated. As he is a Mormon, an extremely unpopular small sect of Christianity, he will loose both the vast majority of the religious rights voting pool as well as much of the middles.

But not until Perry's campaign begins its launch against him. At that time, the spotlight will shine brightly on Romneys religions quiet but common practice of polygamy today under a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, The strange, clannish behavior and suspicious attitude towards outsiders will be emphasized, and the recent felony convictions of Mormon men for child the molestation and abuse of their "child brides" will be re-released.
Time is of the essence, and mark my words, Perry will wait until the most fatal moment in the race to use this tool to defeat him. And he will. Obama hasn't a chance in hell against Perry and I see no other candidate that will even slow Perry down.


How did that strategy work out?

By the looks of it, the attack on Romney's religion resulted on the demise of the candidacy of the attacker. That preacher, whatever his name was, really single handedly destroyed whatever chances Perry had of getting the Republican nomination. The best that he can hope for now is that the Republican nominee loses the election so he can try again in 2016.

Romney should be smart enough to not accept him as the VP candidate in the ticket. He should remember what happened the last time a president from Massachusetts had a vice-president from Texas.

Let them man talk. Like Palin and Bachmann, the more he says, the faster he implodes.

Seriously GOP fans, looking over your list of cartoon characters, don't you think y'all 'd be better off sitting this one out till you can come up wiht a serious and good candidate??

Rick Perry can release all the messages he wants to he is done. He's like at 10% and sliding now and those 10% are prob all Texan GOP's at this point. He dug his own nominee grave. Now since he wants to back out of many GOP debates which is going to do the complete opposite in what he is thinking that it will help him in the polls, its just going to get worse and worse for him here on out. If you don't like debating your own GOP on a political scale then how are you ever going to go toe to toe with the prez of the U.S. and debate him on a grand scale. Avoid him and do nothing but attack ads instead and hope that will get you in the white house? LOL oh yeah that will go over well... If you are weak on debates and defending your postion then that shows everyone that you aren't a true leader that can lead this country.

As for the bottom 4 Paul, Bachmann, Santorum and Huntsman, neither of them should be invited to any future GOP debates at this point. None of them have a chance in hell at the nomination. I mean come on, 8.5%, 3.8%, 2.0% and 1.0% based on the RCP Avg poll? it's not like they are gaining in the polls they are either staying the same or continuing to fall back. Common sense says its time to hang them up at this stage of the game.

I think that the Texas legislature should call Perry back to Texas to avoid further embarrassment of that once proud state. Maybe in Texas they appreciate Perry's moronic sense of humor, but it looks like their boy can't cut it in national politics without the help of a teleprompter.

Add to that the charges of the Cain campaign against the dirty tricks being played by the Perry campaign, and the charges by Bachman that the Perry campaign was behind the attempts to undermine her support among the Tea Party partisans, all this on top of the failed strategy of using the extreme right wing of the christo-fascist movement to attack Romney, and the result is that you have a clear picture of a crazy megalomaniac. For his/her own personal safety, no Republican nominee should consider Perry as a running mate.


All candidates might as well just give up the ghost, as Perry has.
It will be utterly impossible to defeat Obama now that he's taken control of our Senate, holding them ho$tage, inciting riots to prove his control (as he promised them he would if they refused to bend to his will) and he now holds control of our media through cen$orship.
Caesar himself wouldn't have a chance in hell against a tyrant of this magnitude.


Do people get paid to post this type of nonsense in forums like this one?

You don't know what media censorship is. I have lived in a country when there was media censorship and let me tell you that if that was the case here, a lot of the loudmouths who pride themselves on insulting the president daily would have been silenced a long time ago. Censorship takes place when a group or a political force has absolute control of the institutions that govern the country. However, just because a group or political party has controls of the institutions of government doesn't mean that there is censorship, unless such a group or political party decides to openly silence the opposition.

Do you have any evidence that the president has closed any right wing media outlets?
Has the First amendment been revoked? Does his party control the House of Representatives? Can he tell the Supreme Court of Justice to ignore the laws? Has any journalist or entertainer from the right wing media been jailed for insulting the president? Has the president even attempted to prosecute those people who insult him over the airwaves several times a day? Has the president closed any newspaper, or his supporters burned the newspaper's buildings? Has Rush Limbaugh been physically attacked by unidentifieds assailants? Has anyone bombed your house? Has anyone killed a right-wing media personality in front of the cameras? Those things are actual happenings in a place where there is actual conflict and where there is an attempt to silence the opposition. When I lived in that situation, the only difference was that the victims were the people on the left and the perpetrators were the extreme right-wingers who didn't want anyone denouncing the pillaging of the country that the right-wingers were inflicting on the people.

The people who are protesting again the greed of the corporations and the banks don't need any inciting from the president. In fact the president needs to be pushed to do more to bring the Democratic Party to action. The latest reports on the growing numbers of people living in poverty in this country indicate that some action is needed to turn this situation around. Nothing good can happen if the number of people living in poverty keeps growing. You don't want that bomb to explode. If that happens, censorship may not be one of yout main worries.

Interesting post..How bout you poll these "Protestors" and see how many of them are Obama supporters?
It is not Censorship it is purposeful exclusion of non Liberal perspectives...it is choosing stories to air that align with liberal ideology, it is maginalizing and vilifying those who don't agree with liberal ideology..when a Majority of those in the Media are Liberals of course there will be Bias in reporting..maybe not out right Censorship but just as effective...

The People don't know what they are protesting, Greed of corporations really? who do you think employs Millions of Americans? Business are in Business to make a profit..CEO's are paid to increase profits..it's no different than a Star quarterback getting paid millions more than a tackle, the quarterback makes decisions that effect the outcome of the game..

People are pissed because they believe what the media tells them..Obama is turning out to be one of the most divisive Presidents ever..he constantly vilifies and demonizes everyone and everything that he can to deflect peoples attention away from his Failures...

Communism, Socialism etc...are not the answer...

Easy, change the station! Don't watch Faux News! Don't listen to Rush Limbaugh and the others liars of that ilk!

It looks like they are not employing many people because they want Obama to fail.


Business are in Business to make a profit..CEO's are paid to increase profits..it's no different than a Star quarterback getting paid millions more than a tackle, the quarterback makes decisions that effect the outcome of the game..


Nobody is saying that business shouldn't make a profit. What I'm saying is that business should contribute to the wellbeing of the country when business is making obscene profits. Why is it that CEO were being paid millions with the money that the government gave them after they nearly bankrupted the country? Were the bailouts part of the increased profits? Or just a little bit of socialism in favor of the corporations?
Besides, it looks as if they made the wrong decisions, so why should they get paid for that, according to your thinking? Chasing the profits they exported the American jobs to countries where they could exploit labor in connivence with dictators and corrupt governments, thus contributing to the growing poverty among the American people who have been thrown out of their jobs because the corporations could make more profits by manufacturing the products overseas. Only problem was that the people in those countries don't make much money to be able to buy the products, nor can the unemployed Americans afford to buy them. Sooner or later those corporations will reap what they have sown.

I hope that not one American goes to die abroad to defend those corporations' interests when they run into trouble with their corrupt and dictatorial hosts.

Meanwhile, the American people are suffering and struggling with the worsening conditions created by the greed of the corporations.


The Re-Emergence of Concentrated Poverty: Metropolitan Trends in the 2000s
November 03, 2011 —

As the first decade of the 2000s drew to a close, the two downturns that bookended the period, combined with slow job growth between, clearly took their toll on the nation’s less fortunate residents.

Over a ten-year span, the country saw the poor population grow by 12.3 million, driving the total number of Americans in poverty to a historic high of 46.2 million. By the end of the decade, over 15 percent of the nation’s population lived below the federal poverty line—$22,314 for a family of four in 2010—though these increases did not occur evenly throughout the country.

An analysis of data on neighborhood poverty from the 2005–09 American Community Surveys and Census 2000 reveals that:

After declining in the 1990s, the population in extreme-poverty neighborhoods—where at least 40 percent of individuals live below the poverty line—rose by one-third from 2000 to 2005–09. By the end of the period, 10.5 percent of poor people nationwide lived in such neighborhoods, up from 9.1 percent in 2000, but still well below the 14.1 percent rate in 1990.

On the other hand, corporations and the richest Americans aren't contributing fairly to the well-being of our society.


Thirty Of America's Most Profitable Companies Paid 'Less Than Zero' In Income Taxes In Last 3 Years: Report

Many major corporations have managed to pay taxes at just over half of the corporate income tax rate, according to a new report.

Nearly 300 of the nation's most profitable companies paid an average tax rate of 18.5 percent from 2008 to 2010, less than half of the 35 percent corporate tax rate, according to a study by the Citizens for Tax Justice released Thursday. Of the 280 companies, 78 studied paid a tax rate of zero or less during at least one year of the three year period.

And thirty companies, the report says, had a negative income tax rate from 2008 to 2010, even though they took home a combined $160 billion in pre-tax profits.

The financial services industry netted the largest share -- at 16.8 percent -- of the $222.7 billion in total tax subsidies that the companies received, the study found. Wells Fargo took home the most tax subsidies of them all, raking in nearly $18 billion in tax breaks over the last three years.

If by "monitoring civil unrest" they meant "generating civil unrest", I get it.

If by "I get it" you mean "I project my own beliefs into everything I read and hear and twist its intended meaning beyond all reasonable recognition" then yes, you do.

"So far, do you like Perry? Why? hate him? why?"

So my take on Perry, comes a little late in the thread.

It was the best of times,, it was the worst of times!

First we had the shy, coy potential candidate, who was a young forceful governor, who was considering a run, from a powerful state. Considering the tea party, the religious right and his backing he looked golden or "the best of times".

As he entered the fray, he rocketed to the top of the polls against opponents. Unfortunately, some of what he was advised(and I blame those advising him) didn't vet things very well.

First we have that awful prayer meeting they had to fill. Not to mention the speeches there. Next he plowed into social security without a thought. Then came the rock(which his advisors should have dumped in a river under the cover of darkness), followed by poor debate performances.

That alone might have sunk him. Backed by 10 million in oil money, a good thing(for him), but to most shades of a future BP debacle, with uncontrolled drilling, brought him a little lower.

Finally we have that performance in New Hampshire, clips that give the gift, that will keep on giving throughout the campaign. Then a thought of not participating in future debates. We now arrive at the worst of times!

We now end up with a candidate all dressed up(campaign$$$) with no place to go.

I of course left out the scenes where he bragged about the death penalty in his state, where it is possible he put an innocent man to death and the crowd at the debate cheering.

I don't hate him, nor like him. He is just a sad figure, who wasn't ready for primetime.
