  1. The facts speak from themselves.
  2. One more question for Raw: How do Spanish speaking people who drive cars in America know when it's time to add GRAVY to their car's engine?
  3. Seems about like the person who once said: Yes. Drunk Driving is alive. People go to parties, drunk too much beer and drive drunk. I guess this is just one more reason to stay away from 16 oz red plastic SOLO cups. I never have understood the draw of it to begin with. Quit going to parties where beer is served in 16oz red plastic SOLO cups and you'll be subjected to a lot less comments that make you question humanity. There is not one thing I am missing in life by not going to these type of parties. I would highly recommend it. Afterall, the best way to stop racism and discrimination is to look the other way and avoid places where you might witness it first hand. Well stated. WTF are you babbling about? My comments were about the waste of time and energy that is Twitter. Nowhere did I indicated that ignoring the problem makes it go away. But if you're going to troll for racist comments on twitter, you're going to find plenty and it will give you a skewed sense of how pervasive the issue is. Might wanna stop by the mechanic and have em look at that thingy that controls comprehension. JJ: "Yes, racism is still alive. It's bad enough when it targets an adult but seems much worse when directed at a young boy like this. I guess this is just one more reason to stay away from Twitter and tweets." JJ: "My comments were about the waste of time and energy that is Twitter." Sorry JJ. I thought your comments were about "racism" being "still alive" and that "is just one more reason to stay away from Twitter". I have no idea where I got that idea.
  4. Good point. How could anyone safely drive without a good command of English. If you can't read english, how will you know what these signs mean? I mean, seriously: Stop and think for a second
  5. The projected deficit over the next 10 years, according to the REPUBLICAN Senate numbers that the article links to, projects either a 6.3 trillion or 7.0 trillion deficit in the next 10 years. If the article was fair and balanced it might read this way: "$4 trillion? Try $6.65 trillion, the average of the 2 estimates. That’s $6,650,000,000,000. Even the lowest, extremely conservative estimate comes in at $6.3 trillion; the highest is over $7 trillion." If the article overstates that GAP between WH and GOP estimated deficits by 4400% (that is 44 times more than the actual gap is) then the FACTUAL data should soften the statement below, since the challenge is 44 times less difficult that origninally assumed. UPDATE: Fiscal YTD number show a 26% reduction in the projected deficit this year. If those numbers hold, we would need a 4.X Trillion solution to stop the deficit. Yes, if you only look at the first ten year period of the GOP deficit projection, the apples to apples numbers are about $4T to $6T or $7T. the way the article presented the information is a little dishonest in that regard. However, I will stick by the statement that we face a stiffer challenge than what the CBO is predicting and what the Obama WH seems to be relying on. $4T up to $6.5T is still a huge increase and large difference. 163% or $2,500,000,000.00 machts nicht, I don't think those figures are anything to poo poo under the rug. I also still stand by the thought that these bozos in DC should be using a longer timeline than ten years. The anticipated Medicare increases and large numbers of new retirees will have a detrimental effect on the deficit and much of this starts being realized after that initial ten year window. If we know it's coming, why cut off projections at only ten years and use that partial information as a basis for spending more money than we have? A trillion dollars is almost impossible to comprehend. When you are looking at having to cut $4T or $7T or $100T, I do not believe you can start on that process soon enough. Those are just unfathomable numbers. As I stated, the Fiscal YTD numbers out this week show that the deficit for this year is running 26% below what was projected. If you lower the tainted, bias Republican Senate projections by 26%, you will see that the SPECIFIC CUTS/CHANGES offered by the White House are almost bring the 10 year projected deficit to $0. Yet I don't see you endorsing the either the White House plan, or any other plan. Rather, you seem content to complain that leaders would govern.
  6. I try to vote for the best candidate. What party they are with isn't a major concern. I can't think of the last general election where I voted for candidates from just one party.
  7. Hard to believe. In KS, they tried to say federal gun laws don't apply. No 2nd Ammendment?

  9. I would bet you Trayvon did something to Zimmerman that would've made him pull out his gun. Too many young kids have an attitude these days. And therefore, he deserved to die?
  10. Talked to a CPA today. He has a client that pays 80% of health insurance for his 30 employees (all full time). The client is pissed about Obamacare and believes that he is not going to be able to afford paying 80% next year. The CPA has explained that it is unlikely that Obamacare will actually effect what it costs to insure his employees next year. Further, because he is the owner he has a high net worth but keeps his taxable income low, which means he will actually quality for a $1000 a month tax credit from Obamacare. The business owner is still just as mad and just a confused.
  11. When the original article wants to score political points instead of being truthful and factual, people sometime make false assumptions about what it is saying. Here are some facts that are missing from the article. The "president’s position that $4 trillion in deficit reduction would basically solve the problem for now" comment is refering proposed deficit reduction over the next 10 years. The projected deficit over the next 10 years, according to the REPUBLICAN Senate numbers that the article links to, projects either a 6.3 trillion or 7.0 trillion deficit in the next 10 years. If the article was fair and balanced it might read this way: "$4 trillion? Try $6.65 trillion, the average of the 2 estimates. That’s $6,650,000,000,000. Even the lowest, extremely conservative estimate comes in at $6.3 trillion; the highest is over $7 trillion."

  12. This thread leaves be wondering which is worse: 1. When a President reaches out and involve young innocent victims of discrimination or violence or abuse in an effort to recongnize and end their plight. 2. When people discount forms of discrimination harm children by refering to them as a "politic position". If as JJ said, the current laws "violates a persons right to life, liberty, and happiness"--in this case, the persons denied these rights are these kids parents, then perhaps it is time we show compassion for the children as victims in the same way we do when the President meets with families from Sandyhook or Katrina or 9/11.
