Where I come from you don't point your finger at someone...

unless you are asked to by the judge in a court of law!

Time for some training in manners, Jan Brewer.


In 2003, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney vetoed a bill funding hate crimes prevention


Could this death have been avoided with a little care from Millionaire Romney?


Look at the record if you want to see how Mitt will govern. Read up, get some skills for the fight ahead.

OK folks, it's going to be Romney so start reading up and join the fight.

He says he can work with the Democrats! How'd that go in Massachusetts?

"Romney issued nearly a thousand vetos as governor, the large share of which of which were overturned by one or the other of the state houses.[36][175] Late in Romney's term, his vetos issued began to annoy Republicans in the legislature and he lost support among them too.[36] Nevertheless, Romney defended the practice:

"I know how to veto. I like vetoes. I've vetoed hundreds of spending appropriations as governor."

Please explain: What does it mean when they say US sells Planes to Saudis?


Who's planes are they?
Who gets the money the Arabs are paying?
Are they already built and being used by the US Military?
New or used?
50,000 jobs?
Is the US government in the airplane sales business? Why?
Do Republicans want to give the Muslims more fire power? Why?
Possible uprising coming?

Is this just more 1% crap?

Please tell me what Obama is going to do with the pipeline part of the bill.

I believe he needs to act within 60 days. What does that mean? Has someone heard what he intends to do? Once they were saying he would veto a bill with the pipeline in it.

Just asking.

Please stop repeating false Republican talking points!

The payroll tax cut is NOT affecting Social Security Trust fund. This is just one of many posts that have made this very clear, but somehow right here on DU the facts are blurred.


"Shorting the Trust Fund?

Bachmann said she didn’t support last year’s payroll tax cut, because it took money from the Social Security trust fund and “put senior citizens at risk.” But that’s not true. The Social Security and Medicare Boards of Trustees said that the tax cut would have “no financial impact” on the trust fund."

"The Social Security and Medicare Boards of Trustees said in its 2011 report: “The loss of payroll tax revenue due to this one-year reduction will be made up by transfers from the General Fund of the Treasury to the OASI and DI Trust Funds and will thus have no financial impact on either program.”

The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the tax cut, passed in December 2010, would reduce Social Security revenues by about $115 billion in fiscal 2011 and 2012. Again, that shortfall will be covered by the general fund. The trust fund isn’t being “denied” any money, as Bachmann claimed.

We get enough crap from FOX news without repeating it on the DU.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.

PS. What ever happened to spell check?

Krugman explains the Austrians.


Mark Shields on Friday's News Hour: About war with Iran.

"Republicans love war. They won't pay for it, they won't fight in it, but they love war."
