Republicans Have An Idea!

Updated on August 22, 2010

AP

NEW YORK – Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino said he would transform some New York prisons into dormitories for welfare recipients, where they would work in state-sponsored jobs, get employment training and take lessons in "personal hygiene."

The next part may be hard to believe: Paladino is a wealthy Buffalo real estate developer and is very popular with many tea party activists.

He will be competing for the Republican nomination with former U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio. The primary is Sept. 14.

Not only are these men competing for a very plush office that will serve the biggest pigs at America's hog-trough, but the winner will also be to keep the Golden Pig award for the following year.


Someone said the other day, "You don't have a lot of pride in America Micky."

Well, when Americans see headlines like:

NY candidate: Prison dorms for welfare recipients


-we can all stick our chests out.


The Tea Party - When being rich and crazy just ain't enough.

Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino said that current prisoners would be freed to become real-estate developers and then become candidates for public office, like governor of New York.

The wealthy Buffalo real estate developer popular with many tea party activists said he would insist that personal hygiene would be taught. He was beside himself to find out that many welfare recipients had not been to finishing school.


Uh oh! It looks like Micky is going to pick on BIG BUSINESS again!


Remember how you got fired from that job because you came in late?

Remember how they gave you that severance pay of 30 million dollars?


I thought you would.

Some disgustingly terrible workers get paid even more - to leave!


Mark Hurd - $30 million

Former CEO Mark Hurd stepped down from Hewlett-Packard on Aug. 6 after a public relations nightmare involving falsified expense reports and sexual harassment allegations. He was rewarded with a severance package worth more than $30 million.

I hope this will hold him over until another company to screw comes along.

Yo! Mark Hurd! Go ahead and slap a poor person!

U da Man!

Stick your chests out America!

We've had winners like this since 1776!


William McGuire - $1.2 billion


After leaving his CEO post, McGuire was forced to forfeit more than $400 million worth of stock options and retirement benefits to settle civil and SEC suits related to the company's options practices. As part of his agreement with the SEC, he agreed not to serve as an officer or director of a public company for 10 years.

He's just going to have to learn to live on a severance package of $1.2 billion from United Health Group!

He may have to sell a country or something.


Lee Raymond - $392.5 million

Lee Raymond is going to have to make ends meet with a severance package of $392.5 million
from ExxonMobil. Years as CEO: 1999 - 2005 coincided with GW's wars for oil so Lee should be paying GW a little kick-back. Stock price change during tenure: +63%

Lee worked his way up the "corporate ladder".

You'd think his his ears wouldn't stick out as much!

                          (just think about it)


Robert Nardelli


CEO Nardelli left Home Depot after a year of heavy criticism for everything from his pay package to the underperforming retailer's corporate governance. Stock price change during tenure: -4%.

For his failures Little Bobby Nardelli will only receive $212 million!

That should be a lesson to all you businessmen out there!


Henry McKinnell - $195.8 million


It get's worse for Pfizer's Henry McKinnell!

In the months leading up to his resignation, Pfizer's board of directors became increasingly concerned with McKinnell's management style and struggles to bring new drugs to the market, according to the NY Times. Stock price change during tenure: -36.

$195.8 million !

He's already trying to adapt to domestic caviar!



Michael Ovitz - $81.6 million


Then the day came for little Michael Ovitz.

There was no cute "pink slip" but for the one he was wearing.

Michael was called on to the carpet's carpet and told that his services were no longer required.

Michael asked how he came to be in disfavor.

It was explained in a very diplomatic way that the investors were sick and tired of his sorry ass and to take this $81.6 million dollars and get the hell out of Disneyland.

He was last seen skipping out of the front gate.

Slap a poor man in the face!

I'm so proud of businessmen and republicans, my buttons are popping off my $150 Tommy Hilfiger shirt made in a US commonwealth sweatshop, on an island I never heard of, even though textiles are shut down in my neck of the woods.

Maybe I should see if my $52 Bangladesh shirt is better.

Republicans! Keeping those prices down and giving those savings to YOU!

PROUD!

Businessmen!!!

PROUD!!!



WAIT!

This money give-away reads like "welfare"!!!

Now- these people have failed at their jobs or not.

Regardless! This is too much welfare.

Where is the outcry from conservatives about this "welfare".

Where are the "tea-parties"?

Now have those people come on back in.

We'll give them some clothes.

We'll give them a cell  to live in.

We'll lock it up at night. They'll be safe.



But isn't it just like a republican to come up with the idea that an ideal place for a welfare mother, would be a jail cell?

I guess I'm glad I can't really be surprised anymore.


Tea-Partiers and other Republicans, rejoice!

But elected Democrats will help.

Because there are no Democrats after election.

We're all businesses.

Selling everything.

Morals are the first to go.

God's law is the first to go.


Paladino


Paladino is a wealthy Buffalo real estate developer and all he could come up with, for welfare mothers, was prison cells.

Brilliant- right? Isn't this brilliant?

This is the only idea that a wealthy real estate developer could come up with.


I'm so old.

I'm so tired.


God please take me.


But when America?

When America?

Please tell me when the real party of America will exist?

Can't we start today?

The Republicans are not going to help anybody.

Democrats are Republicans.

Tea-Party folk are republicans too radical for Republicans?


No!

WE need a party.


"Americans UP S#i! Creek Party"

             (UP-under paid)


            The Brown Party!



Oh, I'm sure that these prison cells will be some of the finest.

The prison cells may have ermine carpeting.

I'm sure folks will be lining up from everywhere to live in a cell.


It's just so preciously appropriate that a businessman, a Republican, a Tea-Partier, a conservative, an outsider will bring us such revolutionary ideas!

He's against what's been going on in Washington.


Paladino - For The People


He's for some people alright!

I think most of "The People" would be but not limited to, white, rich, Republican, Tea Totin', ....



If you have the money to buy one political party,

why stop at buying one?

      AM brotherman! Son- there's hardly anything sadder than a person who is not part of that 1% to be standing up for the republican party. There should not be one. How can 1% own so much, control so much, cause so much destruction and suffering? And again- democrats become republicans after they are elected. And Americans not only tolerate this- they kick the butt of Satan. I guess the bully idiots will be back around during the next election to put this hub down. That's when Satan's helpers are most active. It's like the moon drawing the goblins out. America needs to expel the lawyers out of America. God bless you AM!

      Wow, did I miss the fireworks on this one. Just glad I didn't miss it altogether. Great hub. What a foolish world it is. When people talk about the nation being broke, it is such nonsense. Everyone knows where the money is. It's like ten guys putting a thousand watermelons in a safe while a hundred other guys around them starve. Just keep banking on the idiots that are willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead. In the end, the billions upon billions they make the company will easily payoff any lawsuits and severance checks. A couple million is nothing at that point. There are some people just so high and mighty in this world they no longer know what it is like to actually touch the ground. They floating above us all, sitting in their penthouses. squeezing all the ants below between their forefinger and thumb. And just think - I'm a member of UP and didn't even know it. Peace

      God bless you Sa'ge! You cannot make a dumb ass drink. The BRAINWASHING is unbreakable.

      What gets me the most is the flag of ignorance that they rap around themselves.

      God broke it all down for them: "DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOUR WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU.

      Then these folks have to speak, interject foolishness into the equation. Deny. Confuse. Mis-direct. Meanwhile millions are suffering. Some will perpetuate evil for "tradition".

      man I posted to soon! lol The flames came later and I had left. Way to late to say my piece. But hey, AMEN MD, you pulled the plug! You can lead a horse to water but you can not make it drink. I see that others helped you fill the water trough and it still was to no avail. Sometimes people are so brainwashed that they won't drink unless their master tells them to. Sometimes the master does not want the slave to drink! I won't explain that one! Bless you! Aloha!

      Don't comment anymore. You have nothing to say. I'll not allow one more. I don't care what strategy you use.

      You are not worth anyone's time. All this you've written is just to call me a name. All through your dribble.

      You have nothing but Republican rhetoric. No more on my hubs.

      I thought I've given you some facts you still want to ignore. They could be more "false flags". I have no idea what reality is. As long as there is a Republican or Democrat I'll have more than enough doubts. You just pick at sores and cause derisiveness.

      First off Braudboy- if there is hatred that you or anyone else "sees" that's you seeing what you want to see. You go against God's law -yes I'll say you are wrong and Satanic. As far as I know I'm not sure I hate you. I do hate evil -so- you keep clinging to evil and sure I guess we have top draw the line. You've insulted me over and over while kissing big money. Putting you or your idea of "church-folk" in charge of money? Then money for poor? Your goal seems to always have somebody below you. You know little of America's past. You hate America's past. You make up your own "America's past". You've done little on this hub but fondle the jewels of Satan. Now you want people to trust you? The church? The Catholic church where they shuffle pedophiles around or the good church like Jimmy Swaggard and Jim Baker? And who oversees these perverts? You are dumber than the silt at the bottom of a river. But mostly- you're too damn mean to trust with anything. Trust you? That's like putting a bunch of oil men in charge of the country and the Middle-East! You have nothing to do with God. Church up all you want to.

      You keep calling me idiot, coward, etc. You have presented nothing here with all your typing.

      What do you mean a "must" donation to charity. It is no longer a donation when it is a must. It now becomes a required payment and forced tax. You make no sense.

    • braudboy profile image

      braudboy 7 years ago from Long Beach, MS

      Mickey- You are a complete idiot! All you do is just rant and rave. You are filled with hatred and you prove yourself a hypocrite as you preach love and charity as you spew out your venom. How do you not understand churches being in the charity business. You must attend some whacko church or more probably dont go to church. YOu talk alot about God that you do not even know.

      "My church is very charitable and that is how I mostly work out my donation to charity."

      This is just absolutely stupid!

      Some people are atheists.

      Some atheists are much better than Christians. Take Braudboy! Pl,ease!

      You want churches to be in the charity "business". Bookkeepers, CPAs,etc.

      REFUSE RESPONSIBILITY!

      I want to government for ALL the people. You folks are now changing the subject from oranges to comparing apples and then comparing chickens.

      This is just the same old rhetoric.

      All the political games are alive and well.

      Liberals this- liberals that! Your church is hate. Your charity and communism is for the rich. You believe in socialism for your enslavers.

      This "I hate liberals" crap, combined with your compassion for the poor rich, with your desire to label anybody that disagrees with you as liberal or a communist is either way on the other side rational. You're just creating opposites. Meanwhile you drag your feet with condemning lies that took us to war. You will not investigate your "own" for any wrong doing because your main goal is to hat "somebody" called a liberal. It's all Satanic and it just feeds a system that is perfectly broken. You will never elect anyone from this "alignment" that will serve God and Mankind! You are just slaves batted around by your masters, raising your blood pressure, killing yourselves, and sending out as many bad vibrations as possible. This "republican" "thing" has nothing to do with God or raising humanity up. It's me, me, me business as usual. If it's the lesser of two evils- hey- it's evil!

      Yankee- I would have no problem using the bible as a guide...but you live in a fantasy world. In America, the bible and God have been pushed aside (mostly by liberals and democrats in government) so that Christians are limited in their influence for these matters. I am very committed to God and I have a church and I tithe as the bible suggests. My church is very charitable and that is how I mostly work out my donation to charity. However, when governments get into the charity business through the democratic party platform of helping the poor and needy, it becomes a political game with less than pure motives involving power grabs and false promises. ...and you over simplify the two forms of govt called communism and a republic. You say communisms is govt running business. This is way too small a definition. Communism is govt running everything. It is govt running your lives. The American republic at least attempts to give some personal freedom and allow opportunities to better your position through hard work and planning, and so forth. The American republic would be much more functional if not for a democratic party who rises to power trying to undermine the system with promises to the weak-minded and lazy among us that govt can take care of them, thus implementing socialism and even a form of communism into the republic.

      braudboy -- I see the Republicans as the lesser of two evils

      I prefer Social Conservativism.

      Although I am not a so called Christian I believe that the Bible was written as an EXCELLENT guild for moral and social justice.

      Micky Dee -- you said something really good!

      Muslims have a "must" donation to charity that must be given freely.

      * I don't think Americans of any faith should be out done!

      * Let's have our "businesses" treat people and other businesses fairly.

      * Let's build trust.

      * Right now I can't trust government of business. It's history.

      * This government is run by business.

      let me make a couple points

      1 - Communism is government running business

      2 - a Republic is business running government

      What we as CIVIL Americans need to do is put charity in the hands of individual groups just like the countries that allow al-Qaeda and Hamas to do.

      Organizations like those buy support of their followers so they gain popularity and political control - sort of like the Democrats and Welfare and Medicaid and the promise of a Universal Health Care.

      You also said -- Muslims have a "must" donation to charity

      Judaism and Christianity do so as well - Christianity has fallen too far from the traditional sense of Biblical teachings

      braudboy You Said To Mickey

      lets give charity to who needs it....who gets to decide who needs it??? That is where the problem comes in.

      What is wrong with the Bible for guidance?

      NOT God, Incorporated but the written guidance

      It is very well spelled out in great detail and clearly speaks against sloth and gossip of the non working types of people.

      If the Bible was used when the government chose to create a form of Public Welfare - we would not have the excessive gimme attitude that rampantly thrives in Urban Housing area's

      Yankee- I dont have a problem with gun ownership, I just dont like them pointed in my direction. Those 2 towers fell and it all came down to where the debris fell and how the fires fell also. Look, you believe what you want,....you see the republican govt as evil and so you see a plot for 09/11. In a catastrophic event, it does not all make sense. I live on the coast where Hurricane Katrina hit. I can show you where homes were destroyed and then one was spared. When a 120 story building falls, it does not do so in some orderly fashion. I suppose some things around it are spared, but most is not.

      braudboy - umm ... yes - it was a Nebraska State Police issue which had been retired ... which I legally own and am legally allowed to openly carry on the streets.

      and yes - I am questioning the concept of how the Emergency Response Command Center, Regional CIA office and whatever else was in tower 7 collapsed which happened to be NOT HIT by a plane.

      With tower 6 being in between 1 and 7 did not collapse - at this point in time for me it does not make sense.

      "Spiritual" people of different faiths should be united. Those who have a legitimate religion or no religion at all, but people who "do unto others as they would have done unto them". These people have THIS Golden Rule in common. That is the connection and the world must be full of "us" who say live and let live.

      But if America is to be "competitative" let's do it this way. Let's give charity to "who" needs it. Let's give charity "for as long as charity is needed".

      Muslims have a "must" donation to charity that must be given freely.

      I don't think Americans of any faith should be out done! Let's have our "businesses" treat people and other businesses fairly. Let's build trust. Right now I can't trust government of business. It's history. This government is run by business.

      I appreciate your being against corruption. Your-"I'm not sure prison dormitories are quite the answer either. But this is NOT a republican idea, so please try and refrain from putting us all together in that lot." I was not trying to "lump" everyone. BUT- yes - this was THE idea of one jackass republican. So far, if you are a republican, you are the only one who has distanced himself from this statement. By the republicans that are above you here one could assume that the average republican is for business whether they murder Indians or not, whether they murder Mexicans or not, whether they murder Hawaiians or not, whether they murder whoever they want to for anybody's resources or not. The United States "businesses" have a huge reputation for going wherever they want to in the entire world and stealing lives and resources as they wish. THAT is the "BUSINESSES that I hate and will hate for all of my days because God's people are God's people all over this world whether they look like Brad Pitt of Angelina, or any American stereotype.

      Now here you go with "if the Dems ..blah, blah, blah. Right off the bat you are with "THEM"- thinking that for a second that this election process is real. Sorry Springboard- this government is not real. Choose flavor one or two. You're getting the "flavor THEY choose". They are out of "all the others".

      I can certainly agree with you on the executive pay thing. I'm one of the few conservatives you'll hear say that the little guy is getting the shaft while these guys suck every dollar they can out of the corporate coiffures and call it compensatory. Of course THAT'S a load of bullcrap. And BTW, once you add in ALL the goodies, that Mark Hurd severence package is actually $40 million. And if you want to go one step further that's on top of the $42.5 million he was paid in 2008, and another $22 million or so in 2009. When you add up Hurd's biggest paycheck, EVEN IF he worked 80 hours a week—which I highly doubt—he's earning well over $10,000 an hour. How is that EVER compensatory?

      Don't even get me started on Nardelli. I've written a couple of hubs on these very topics. So, just to be clear I'm not towing the party line. I'm sensible enough to see quite clearly there's something rotten in our corporate structure.

      Still, on the issue of welfare, I'm opposed to it for one main reason. It's virtually without end. It solves nothing. Hand a guy a check and he'll have no more incentive to get off his kiester and do something productive. Many of these people are on welfare because they want to be. I know that's a controversial thing to say, but let's face the facts here. There ARE opportunities in this country if you really want them. Are the cards stacked against you? I just wrote a hub called "It's Who You Know, And Who You Blow," that says absolutely things are a little bit rigged in favor of the haves vs. the have nots. But odds can be defied. Effort is a terrible thing to not put forth, and it's going to take a ton of it. If you want to be off welfare, you will. If you don't, then you'll be on it forever. For me it really is that simple.

      I have long said that people on welfare should only be able to collect welfare for a specified period of time—hey, where have I heard that before? Oh yes, that's how they work unemployment. You can't simply get on the dole, and stay on the dole forever. We should say to the welfare recipients, "Here's a few bucks to get you pointed in the right direction." Not what we say to them now, which is basically "Let us know when you're back on your feet."

      If giant paychecks don't REALLY make great CEO's as your illustrations clearly illustrate, then welfare checks don't make productive citizens. Both are simply raping the system, just on different levels and with different excuses and justifications.

      I'm not sure prison dormitories are quite the answer either. But this is NOT a republican idea, so please try and refrain from putting us all together in that lot. As for being for the rich? In reality the republicans are for the working class via their policies which encourage business to thrive. That creates jobs for you and I. If the dems had the right idea, they've had the House and the Senate for 4 years now—it would appear their ideas about job creation isn't working. Now granted, I'll openly say after saying all that that there ARE examples of the trickle down theory not working entirely. But no system is perfect.

      Badtoe-(I actually have a bad toe right now....I stubbed my little toe on some furniture....but thats not important), I dont pretend to speak for Pres Bush and I dont particularly care for war. Saddam Husein was an evil dictator who had been a constant threat to American interests. This hub has alot to say about pointing out evil....and Bush pointed out the axis of evil in our world at that time. As for Saudi Arabia, this oil rich country has the friendship of whoever is in the whitehouse, republican or democrat. ....and who said all muslims are extremist? Its kind of like this. I dont think all liberals are kooks either...but the ones who think 09/11 wasnt real or was a republican plot...well those are the kooks.

      Gee- I'm actually pretty calm. Just rode my bike close to 40 miles. I'm pretty relaxed. May take a nap in a bit. One building going down in the "likely lie told" is a world record. To have another building go down the same is two world records. But I should believe the suppressed information version of one of the biggest liars and drunkards that ever sat in the oval office. You are very plain Braudboy. You are loyal to money, power, and incorporated state of republicans. 3 world records in one day: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=creativewindsp.../u/2/EJAVMUMjr3Q

      With hesitant respect to your comment segment which said:

      and the World Trade Centers did survive the crash, but not the resulting extremely high-temperature fires that ensued for the next several hours. The building eventually weakened in some vital areas and then the weight of the building from on top collapsed the whole building. If you are trying to find evil, it is right in front of your nose.

      I took notice to one specific part of that where you (braudboy) said

      --> If you are trying to find evil, it is right in front of your nose

      Now do explain the FACT that in between the Tower 1 collapse and the Tower 7 collapse was tower 6 which DID NOT collapse.

      So Braudboy you care to enlighten me why the Bush administration chose to bomb Iraq killing thousands of women and children on the basis that Muslim extremists responsible for organising 9/11 lived there, which of course they didn't? You want to explain that those murdering bastards on the planes were all traced to Saudi Arabia a country that the Bush family have had lucrative ties with for at least 30 years. You see what I'm getting at here? You know, the lies from a government you appear to support. And perhaps in addition explain this to me; Muslim extremists are happy to die for the cause yes? How many muslims live in america? if they were all extremists don't you think there would be a lot of dead americans by now? but there isn't is there? Maybe just maybe this whole fear epidemic engineered by the Bush administration just might be a ruse to get suckers to vote for them. Did you vote Bush in twice Braud?

      As for insults, you seem pretty good at dishing them out when folk disagree with your right wing extremism. If Mickey D is delusional you are from a different planet.

      Why I bet you think Oswald killed JFK too.....

      You're ready for the barbecue now Braud.....

      Mickey- calm down and lets talk through this. We have alot of evidence of highjackers from 09/11. The Seattle Times has no idea if a building will survive a 600 MPH airliner crash as it has never happened before. They can try and predict. ...and the World Trade Centers did survive the crash, but not the resulting extremely high-temperature fires that ensued for the next several hours. The building eventually weakened in some vital areas and then the weight of the building from on top collapsed the whole building. If you are trying to find evil, it is right in front of your nose. It is called Muslim radical extremists. They really do exist and they want to destroy America. There is so much to say to you but we have got to get past your dillusional visions that everyone with a different opinion from you is evil and satanic.

      Two more taunting comments by KFlippin were erased. This is where KFlippin has gone right on with the strategy of the dictators. She continues to ridicule proving my theory more to be fact that she and her colleagues are Satanic. For all their typing on keys- all they do is taunt.

      3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause

      The most significant common thread among these regimes was the use of scapegoating as a means to divert the people’s attention from other problems, to shift blame for failures, and to channel frustration in controlled directions. The methods of choice—relentless propaganda and disinformation—were usually effective. Often the regimes would incite “spontaneous” acts against the target scapegoats, usually communists, socialists, liberals, Jews, ethnic and racial minorities, traditional national enemies, members of other religions, secularists, homosexuals, and “terrorists.” Active opponents of these regimes were inevitably labeled as terrorists and dealt with accordingly.

      From the inability for any right winger to present any facts at all- this comment is closed to Republicans and other Satanists. Due to KFlippin's continued childish idiocyafter this post and again- no evidence- no new news at all, nothing but rhetoric and redicule KFlippin's posts will never be seen on a Micky Dee hub and the same goes for Braudboy.

      Because most of the right winging folks have an aversion to the truth I thought I do YET MORE HOMEWORK FOR YOU:

      Operation Northwoods

      On March 13, 1962, unknown to President John Kennedy, the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff okayed Operation Northwoods which was a plan to blow up a United States airplane. This would be committing terrorist murders against American citizens on American soil. Cuba would be blamed. It would be justification for a United States invasion. This was the master-mind of Lyman Lemnitzer. Kennedy demoted Lyman Lemnitzer in November of 1962. John Kennedy was killed November 22, 1963 in Dallas.

      It may have been the idea of President Eisenhower in the last days of his administration. Cold War was hotter than ever. The U-2 scandal was fresh in the public's memory. The old general wanted to go out a winner. He wanted to invade Cuba in the weeks leading up to Kennedy's inauguration. On January 3 he told Lemnitzer and other aides in his Cabinet Room that he would move against Castro before the inauguration if the Cubans would just give him an excuse. With time growing short, Eisenhower floated this idea. If Castro failed to provide that excuse, the United States "could think of manufacturing something that would be generally acceptable." He was suggesting a pretext, a bombing, an attack, an act of sabotage carried out secretly against the United States and by the United States. Its purpose would be to justify war. This scenario has played out many times in history.

      In 1975 Lyman Lemnitzer would be appointed to the Commission on CIA Activites (Rockefeller Commission) within the US. He was appointed by President Gerald Ford. This was to determine if the CIA had violated American laws. Say what? Read both of these again?

      The technology to fly a Boeing 720 remotely-controlled existed in 1984 (NASA).

      The Seattle Times reported on February 27, 1993 that WTC Engineer John Skilling stated WTC would survive a 600 mph Boeing 707 crash.

      9/11 Coincidences (1/19)

      George Bush succeeded in business only after the investment of reputed al Qaeda financiers Salem bin Laden and Khalid bin Mahfouz. The bin Ladens and Bushes are family friends. Osama is the 'black sheep' of the family.

      Bin Laden was a CIA asset. Bin Laden was with al Qaeda cells fighting alongside the US in the Balkan conflict as recently as 1999.

      Unocal suspended the Afghanistan pipeline work in August of 1998 due to political instability.

      On May 8, 2001 Dick Cheney bypassed established structure and appointed himself to the job of coordinating reaction to domestic terror attacks.

      May 2001- US security chiefs rejected the Sudan's offer of thick files on bin Laden and al-Qaeda. This was the third time.

      On June 1, 2001 the order of authority to shoot down hijacked aircraft was given to Rumsfeld. The authority was taken from field commanders. It was rescinded shortly after 9/11.

      Well go ahead and slap me silly if I don't believe a word any of these political whizzes say. Obama? He's an okay Republican. He's certainly not in the league with Clinton or some others. I think Obama can lie but nothing like his predecessors.

      Not sure what all your point is really. Yep- I believe people in our government lie. You folks don't?

      Again- none of this really has much to do with the Republican's hatred of the poor to the point of degrading the poor welfare mothers while the rich take severance packages that are insane. I guess this is more of the "mis-direction" strategy. You always have something "cooking". Fact remains- if you allow business the free rein that you endorse it is indeed -not being your brother's keeper. And yep- when you do not do unto others as you would have them do unto you then you are breaking God's greatest law. Well there are two spoken together. Obey/worship the one true God and "do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

      So talk around, above, beyond, whatever. But if you believe that corruption in government and business is okay to the point of taking lives and displacing people and enslaving people etc. - you are evil. If you promote and protect businesses that participate in this global epidemic of oppression and murder then you are evil. You continue to assault me and pick away at Micky Dee. Go ahead. I'm an asshole. It won't take away the fact that you're protecting evil. To not condemn evil is to side with it. You made your choices way back up toward the top of these comments.

      If you've gained any ground I still don't see it. You certainly haven't disproved one thing I've said. You've only confirmed.

      Of course, 911 was all a staged farce (cough, choke) the corrupt USA had control of the planes (kind of like Obama had control of the one that oddly flew without notice into NYC air space not so long ago and caused great fear, what assholes!! don't hear much about that???) Those cell phone calls in flight, they mimed the real Americans on those flights, our RED guvment paid those terrorists and gave them box cutters, and dummy/plug cell phones with recorded American voices, and passes to Heaven and /or Allah for the hijackers...however that works. :) Yes, it is all so clear now.......

      Hey, this kind of bantering could be fun......if it weren't so sickly sad for our country, and those that jump on board and say "yeah" that's what happened!!! Sad. Sick. Mind Games of the Worst Sort.

      Micky you've said:

      ". . .those of us who do try to lead good "lies" should be aware. . ." No doubt an accidental spelling, good "lies", but nonetheless so very apt, and one has to wonder at such 'accidental' spellings in sputter such as yours.

      Yes, Mickey, you should be very aware of good "lies", Obama's lengthy address to the nation tonight of such oddity and weirdness, puppet-like, should make us all aware, very aware, of the loss of direction for our country, of the "LIES".

      Cheers...to the "the current source of the misery. . ." and without a doubt "corruption": Would that be your view? LOL. Surely not.

      I'll ignore from now on your Godless, Satan spewing bull, as the emptiness it is, as one day you will see that you are being quite un-Christian, quite sickly Judgmental, of me for certain, and it is quite telling to more folks than just me, so think on that.

      Hail Michael Moore, hail Hitler, hail Charlie Sheen, hail any big shot who has made a fortune from capitalism in the grand old USA, it remains quite interesting how these RICH capitalists denigrate the very venue that gave them power and wealth!!! Very interesting.

      But, still, again, as it has really ticked me off, how dare you call me GodLess? How dare you judge me and call on Satan? Again and again, in reference to ME? Ha. Look to yourself and look deeply. *That is the single significant action of your words that denigrates every word you speak.*

      The Golden Rule? Apparently you have a very skewed understanding of the Golden Rule. Take a breath for days, weeks, months, and try to look at the world anew and unbiased, and find a happy place that doesn't leave you with such un-Christian language, views, and misplaced vengance.

      Best regards and wishes and prayers for you Micky Dee . . . Elizabeth Katie Flippin

      P.S. Nuff said, and I pray you'll find your way from the morass of the anti-Christian Judgers and Jugglers of our history.

      And I have no clue who Braudboy is, started following him a few days back as at least he clearly doesn't cry and throw things when he reads your corrupt view on the world and individuals when he reads your personal attacks (and nor will I ever again, I realize now I've just been taken by your Internet/HP persona so well played, and hope one day to be surprised that its basic truth was real.).

      Kudos, feel good and gooder!! As in the so terribly awesomely funny GEICO commercial in this capitalistic world of today:

      Did the Little Piggy Cry Wee Wee Wee All the Way Home...? LOL. Or Did He Go to Market? Or Did He Have Roast Beef or Did he Have None? Wee, Wee, Wee............. :) Capitalist or Socialist Pig? What a Conundrum!!! Just who stays home???? Ah, the truth in nursery rhymes... :) :)

      I'm saying the Democrats signing in here hate this corruption as sane and spiritual people should. You don't.

      I think most Democrats at the grass roots level have more honest love and care for their fellow man. Those type show it here. Maybe they won't be so quick to stand up to corruption when a Democrat is at the head of it.

      I'm saying- you can vote for a Democrat if you want to. They are certainly more "charming" than bull dog Republicans. Bull dogs bite, drool, sometimes pee and poop wherever they want to.

      Yes Democrats are charming! Every Democrat, ELECTED, will do the bidding of not only business, but BAD business as well.

      You can sort my definition maybe as this.: Republicans will give you rabies. Democrats will give you nice thoughts- and then rabies.

      I sure like the pretending of the Democrats. It feels so "home-made" fresh.

      Republicans, as you have so well exhibited here on this page are bullies that deny history, which is denying truth, which is evil.

      Now why don't you go write a hub about all the evils of a Democrat. John Edwards is just the type of jackass that would make a great anti-Democrat-jackass-hub. Write about Bill Clinton. I dare you! Bill Clinton was the best Republican this country has ever seen. Sure, Democrats will give him the credit for saving the economy before GW Bush flushed it down the toilet and killed 3 to 4000 people in the WTC (or he and Dick covered it up). But Bill Clinton raised the bar with stealth-corruption. Most of Bush, Cheney, Rummy, and company were hardly stealth but their brother Bill taught them a few things.

      So go with whatever plan of attack you have next. My bet is that "Micky is a liberal" will do for a while. You can say that I slander America's crooks by telling the truth and I should be ashamed of telling the truth like I do. Continue!

      Bill Gates and his monopoly are not what this hub is about. This hub is and has been about some jack-o-butts who are obviously corrupt. You write about Bill Gates or any corruption you see. Write about Democratic corruption.

      AND- I don't think that "Micky Dee" is missing "this world full of evil and sin". I sure don't want to sweep it under a rug and pretend that it doesn't exist. To hide this evil is a sin and a sin that is detrimental to many people. Just because the world is full of poopoo doesn't mean that the rest of us shouldn't shun and condemn the poopoo. Talk in circles all you like. You're suggesting the world is horrible and I should just "add to it". Join the party of crime and hiding crime.

      No- I would join the Democrats first because the Democrats at least hate Republican/business and evils of other crimes.

      I'm neither Democrat or Republican but the Democrats sure have the moral ground. The Democrats that log in to this page hate this immorality. Republicans say, "Keep it mum about corruption, crime, job loss, slavery, murder, etc.

      When I roast a Democrat for the same thing I hope the "Dems will say Amen, jerks!"

      If they tiptoe about it I will say Dems are going against God. If ANYONE dose not lift our people up then this ANYONE is transgressing God's LAW.

      And that's the law that counts. Not what Newt, Trent, Edwards, Bush, Clinton or you!

There is no way to correct this. We must live in this world and do the best we can. You find evil and then condemn everyone around for that evil. Do you find some fault with Bill Gates for making his fortune in this evil capitalist sytsem that America invented? Because now, as I understand, he is turning his life toward helping others with his fortune. This sounds like something good has come out of all his evil profit-making.

      So what we see today is that if you criticize corruption you are a liberal. Well I'm guilty. I am indeed against corruption. That's what this huyb is about. If people are not FOR corruption then I take it that they are FOR corruption. So Mathematically and scientifically by your words and deeds you are declared For corruption and I take that to be FOR evil.

      I am against corruption. I will speak about any corruption I feel like and you two little Satan's helpers are not going to change my mind.

      THIS HUB IS AGAINST EVIL! Please send all your cronies over here to help you. You've cursed me, you called me a coward- you have insulted - I have answered most insults or the heaviest. That seemed to quiet the bully in you for a while.

      Bring it on folks. I have nothing to stand on but the Golden Rule. I will stand alone with it. GOD said to love your neighbor. GOD said to "do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

      "Whatever you have done to the least of these you have done for me."

      THERE ARE NO APOLOGIES.

      I will stand for God's LAW.

      THIS IS MY LINE DRAWN IN THE SAND!

      You want to only protect evil and attack God!

      Attacking good is attacking God.

      You have chosen to serve lies.

      I choose to serve truth.

      NO COMPROMISE.

      The Golden Rule is the law of God and the universe, the world.

      You can change the subject, offer more ridiculous rhetoric, you can ignore evil as you cut me down. I am not the subject of this hub. The subject is money corruption.

      You can PRETEND to be good patriots and you are not. You are Moneykissers. That's your party.

      Every religion has a form THIS LAW above all others- "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"!

      This law makes your defense of evil more inane and insane. Some businesses right now are causing deaths in Nigeria, some of these businesses are killing a leader. Some of these businesses are displacing people.

      All business should be run with the Golden Rule in mind. Perhaps YOUR world will always be corrupt. Perhaps you and others will always back the winning teams who erase history and rewrite lies. I'll stand for God and the truth.

      With the truth I say that bad businesses should be penalized. Bad leaders should be imprisoned. Bad leaders should have the harshest penalties because they lead good people to hell.

      Go ahead- continue to plug my hub against bad business here.

      My mind and hearts are made up. I am without a doubt FOR the WEAK and IMPOVERISHED! I am for the MEEK!

      I am for THE GOLDEN RULE. Make life as complicated as you want to. Get your IRA all sealed up. Deny the poor to have children. House people in gated communities.

      PULL FOR THE EVIL who have wealth without labor.

      I am NOT FOR the evil that YOU DEFEND!

      I'll be the broken old fool, that knows history, and worships a benevolent God.

      I am for GOOD.

      I am FOR GOD!

      This is really getting out of hand, for some days now, sadly so, for you Mickey. No Christian should be so very twisted and judgmental and harsh -- no matter the trials of their life, take a step back, there has never been a perfect world, nor will there ever be. Criticize America and her history, endlessly, but find another country without equivalent historical blemish to take her place? Not likely.

      What have you said Braudboy? If you were anything but Satan you would have read something and you could have added something. I am against BAD BUSINESS. If you want to write me down as never again pledging allegiance to this country- write it down.

      My pledge of allegiance is to God. My pledge of allegiance is to my fellowman.

      Your pledge is to Satan.

      To pledge to "business" is to pledge to Satan.

      To believe in good is to believe in a benevolent God.

      Not a murdering people. To murder, torture, and falsely imprison is evil, ergo, Satanic.

      To do anything but lift our people up is evil.

      You're in plain sight. You are the Devil. You are the devil's henchman. To do anything but raise our people up is evil.

      Second, ding dong, my message is that there is no one square inch of this planet, not one animal, not one human being that is safe from big business. You just repeat the same drivel about my hating a country that you and your friends and aliens are destroying. You are a traitor to America and humanity. You're a broken record. You are evidently lazy. You spend all your free time here at this hub. If you were concerned about America you would be helping America. But you tear America down. You're negative.

      They feel they deserve to run the country and make the laws by themselves! Everyone else should go somewhere else! Braudboy's comment about the slaves is indicative of his mindset! Scary!

      Micky-you are way out there. YOu have a deep hatred for America....have you considered relocating to some country that you approve of??? America is the greatest country in the history of man. It is indisputable, but you still rant on about evil businessmen. There are bad apples everywhere and I dont pretend that these business men are saints. But American capitalism has prospered this country to unequaled heights and has allowed for you to ride around on your nice bike and your wacky bike outfit on some newly paved roads and bike paths in some well developed cities. It allows you to go home after a long ride and get a hot shower with fresh running water and maybe sit in some cool air conditioning afterwards in a nice house. Maybe you could get in your lazy boy recliner or get in your new car and go to dinner at a nice restaurant to relax and unwind. There are alot of things you take for granted in this country that you just might want to thank an American businessman for. Yes, America had slavery, but I dont know one ancestor of those slaves who would trade the American dream and return to their native lands. They realize they are in the greatest country and have the best opportunity for freedom and success. Wake up, Micky. America is great. It is OK to try and improve on it, but first you have to quit bashing it.

      Braudboy- it didn't work out for the Indians. It didn't work out for the slaves. It didn't work out for Mexico. America- no, not America and its people, American BUSINESSMEN stole their land. AMerican BUSINESSMEN stole Hawaii. Hawaii is an independent country that has been occupied by American BUSINESSMEN. Hawaii's quenn was deposed for Dole Pine-apple head. The BUSINESSMEN with United Fruit Company stole land through South America. I could go on about your BUSINESSMEN that you are gay for Braudboy but you would just write a hundred times that US capitalism is the best when in actuality BUSINESSMEN from the UNITED STATES of AMERICA are from Satan himself. Like you. You can only be from Satan. You can't be as dumb as you are but by choice. You and most republicans choose to ignore history and rewrite for yourselves. But you aren't a real republican. You are a republican muppet. You are dumber than most people on the hubs. I guess there are a lot of stupid people who will choose to be as stupid as you are. You have no facts. What you do is just write "American capitalism is the greatest". You're just trying to be a pig at the trough. Not any facts in all the writing you scribbled here. You've called me out three times and every time I've shut you the hell up and all you can do is quote your dumb ass republican mantra about how America is the best since Swiss cheese. Well for more than every legitimate lie you can tell in favor of your evil partners in crime I can tell you the truth that would spin a negative about these BUSINESSMEN of America. The truth is these businessmen that run our country aren't even from this country. They just own it. That would be the Rothschild. But again you don't even know them You don't even know that the Federal Reserve is not part of our government. You don't know that the Rothschilds have financed most major wars since the Civil War. But the fact is about you and your putrid brothers is you don't want to know. You're a damn fool. You're traitors. You are evil. You don't know God. You refuse mankind. You worship evil.

YOu must go deeper than that unless you want to just give up and move on to your after-life (if you believe in one). I look at and analyze that, given that no form of government or society has been perfect and all have many faults, I see that American capitalism is the best that has come around in man's history...bar none! I make no hatred of the poor or needy...it is you spouting off hatreds. I understand that the poor and needy of this country are far better off than in any other country on this earth. ....and finally, I just want you to read that I have beaten back your ignorance and have defeated your foolishness. It is here for everyone to read how I have frustrated and exposed you. It is here for everyone to witness how you cowardly surrendered to my viewpoint and declared you would delete my comments.

I'll take an atheist any day over someone who worships evil as you do. Time is running out on all of us. You're an idiot and fool. I've met your insults.

      No- I'm not recognizing another idiot fool republican spouting the same foolishness over and over again.

      Braudboy. I thought we had settled your insult of calling me names like coward,leral, and such when I replied to your inane drivel as so:

      "You are a lazy coward. You insult. You tell me I should get a job. You are dog shit on a good man's shoe. You come on like a bully. There is NO arena that you have beat me in and there will be none. You have not out-worked me. I owned my own business. I've been inside my own septic tank. I've been the only man, period, to hook up drag-lines for Ralph Morrell in swamps and rivers for his construction crew. I built my own home. I've slept in my shop while working from morning until morning. Now you Braudboy are a yellow coward! Whatever arena you want to set up coward set it up. My bet is you are a paid antagonizer and you've done not one damn thing of merit. My bet is you are paid to issue your drivel. In fact you are waste. This is just my assessment from all the lies and corruption you are eat up with."

      Now inside those quotation marks I tell you, "Now you Braudboy are a yellow coward! Whatever arena you want to set up coward set it up."

      You're a shape shifter. So before any further ado: "Now you Braudboy are a yellow coward! Whatever arena you want to set up coward set it up." You should respond to that challenge before you call anyone else a coward. But that's you. Mostly you want to lie. You want to bost to a family member how you'd show somebody a thing or too. Well tiger here is your chance. The cards are all stacked in your favor. Put up or shut up.

      We can talk about famous democrats who have screwed up. But you!!! You are mostly alike. You yell about how you are the worker. You are the fighter. You are the only one on earth that deserves oxygen. Yep! You're a republican. Be proud republicans.

      You're deleted Braudboy. It's because you are nothing but rhetoric. You care not an iota for truth or your fellow man. This hub, if you go back to the top is about republicans coming up with another undignified way to treat the "inferiors". Well I cast my lot with the real salt of the earth. You've just brought discourse which is what the republican flunky does. The real payoffs from your party goes to the rich and business. You refuse to educate yourself or acknowledge American history. This hub is about corporate payoffs to, yes, republicans, with laws set by republicans, and real republicans are big and pig businesses. And after election day- all democrats are republicans. Your government isn't even real Braudboy. Read history. The US of A that you believe in never existed. Sorry democrats- yours didn't either. But Braudboy- THE law of Jesus is to do unto others as you would have done unto you. "What you have done to the least of these you have done unto me". What you and most republicans and democrats are doing as elected officials has to do with Satan. It is not of God. So Braudboy I will delete you and ask you to return to the rock from which you came. Now if you and others want to attack me for my insensitivity, you go right ahead. You and the "others" will not give a fig for Jesus, God, your fellow man and there is only one thing for you to be passionate about and that is evil. No ifs ands buts.

      braudboy - professional bums! you really think people want to live their lives as a bum? What jobs are open to these people? Would any politicians work low paid jobs and live a hand to mouth existence? Conservatives 'don't want to leave anyone there' you think that's bull? Well let me give you one example of conservative neglect; New Orleans and in particular the run down areas where a majority black population lives. What improvement in their already cursed lives did they get from Bush?

      'Everyone making the effort' ? Jeez it's all so easy aint it? Do career politicians have to make the same effort as they climb the greasy pole of local and then national govt?

      Seems to me the easiest thing for you is to assume every bum on the street is there by choice. You take no account of why they might be there in the first place. If kids have no support or guidance at home what follows then?

      Look beyond your prejudices and try and see the root of this misfortune. Republicans will never take care of the homeless and they don't give a shit what happens to people on the brink of society. If you believe otherwise then I guess the whole right wing media and politicians don't even need to ask for your vote because you've signed up for life.

      Joe Badtoe- You have it wrong. Conservatives dont blame the poor for contaminating good society. It is more accurate to say they blame the lazy and the do-nothings, and the sluggards. Now, it is true that these are more likely to be poor from their lack of effort to better themselves and they get no where as they hold there hand out to government.

      Yo Joe Badtoe! I can't argue with a word you've said. I have to add that there are no democrats after election. The right wing will never "champion" the poor and hard-working. No question there. You can see and feel the rhetoric on this page. The right wing claim they work but in actuality they could never keep up with poor people in those same positions. The democrats will talk a wonderful talk before election and we're all sure the world could maybe reverse what "business" does. But, alas, there are no democrats after election. America cannot wean itself off bad business. America has turned it's head since 1776 and will continue to do so. The only salvation is the Golden Rule Party. It hasn't been invented yet. At least not promoted.

      Never understood the logic of conservatives who blame the poor for contaminating 'good society' yet it is conservatives policiies that alienate and exclude the worse off. This results in a decline in values, low expectations, desperation,drugs and crime. This of course costs millions to address because you can't have the homeless spilling on to the streets of middle class suburbs. So the conservatives start over with the same hamsters wheel. They do this without ever addressing the cause of the problem and not the result of it.

      If the Republicans/Tea Party had their way the poorest citizens of their own country would be collected off the streets in the same way that pest control picks up dogs.

      Any industrialised wealthy country that opposes healthcare reform to help the poorest of its society is damned.

      Wealth has no emotion and just like the majority of people who possess vast wealth accrued during a corrupt period of office. True politics hasn't been practised in the West for years. It's all about sponsors, business and training chimps to do their bidding. George Bush was the epitome of what is so badly wrong with US politics.

I don't have time for you and the lies that you want to perpetuate. So go tell your story somewhere-else. We've heard your crap. If I was going to buy into your horse-pucky I would have done so long ago just to have you change the subject. Yep- you're just smooching Beelzebub.I was a Marine and fought for the lies of the Gulf of Tonkin. Right now my grand nephew is fighting because of the lies by businessmen Cheney and Bush. Throw people like Clinton in there if want to. Most of congress fell for these lies. America got into WWII because of the Pearl Harbor lie. You're backing a bunch of liars. So I don't expect any truth to come out of you or any republican. Add democrat to that and be satisfied. I'm deleting your lies from now on. Lies are what you represent to me. You support lies. I'd give you some truths to read about but you're too fixated on me and my hub.

      Mickey- do you hold contempt for those corporate sponsors of cycling races, how about the obscene profits of company CEOs that make racing bikes.

      Yea, cause New York doesn't have a budget or welfare problem. Glad I moved to Virginia where there is still commonsensical government.

      How can Bush be elected by the "religious right?" Their number are not strong enough to get that done. It took alot more than that one group to get a president elected. Anyway, all I am saying is that America has the best system on the planet. If you can come up with something better, I am all ears. "french-kissing satan"??? I more see the reality that we live in an imperfect world. You seem to adopt some of Satan's characteristics as you lash out at me in your attempt to find the perfect world. If you are speaking of fantasy...then I agree with you this world is a mess and needs an overhaul. The reality is that America is the best place on earth and its capitalist system must be protected at all costs. The world would like nothing better than to topple America and then you would see real evil take over.

      God bless you Sir!!! To defend these criminals is an act of Godlessness. I am not one of religion. This religious mess keeps killing people as business does. I am for that Golden Rule. If it doesn't help us all it's a false religion. And that republican nonsense is a false religion. And a Democratic nonsense is nonsense! God bless. I'm with you Randy!

      I agree, Mickey! The glorious capitalism touted by some can only become greed after a certain point. The point being when only a few have the lion's share of the capital.

      At this point parties are irrelevant as the powers that be can merely buy both sides and manipulate them to the desired ends. It seems to work well for them when they are championed by the very ones they control!

      Randy Godwin!!! Tell it! "Bush was elected by the religious right and they still feel proud of the misery caused by the cretin. I hope they end up in the same place he does. If god rewards Dubya for his actions, I want no part of heaven!"

      I will uphold the Golden Rule but there is no doubt that the Christian right has wanted to "use" the Republican party. The problem is the Republican party has certainly used the Christians.

      But again I will add that not one Democrat will rescue humanity. Once elected -ALL of these elected are Republican. Clinton was the best Republican we ever had. The world keeps shifting to this "right" which is wrong -yet this "wrong" can never get enough.

      Neither of these parties will do the "right" thing.

      Braudboy- got anything new to add? Ever? You're just French kissing Satan. This hub is about confronting evil. You can't do it. There is nothing just in continuing support for big business that enslaves and gets the handoouts.

      There is NO CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT THE GOLDEN RULE! You can double speak Christianity all day. You need to stand for truth. Truth is Christianity. You and other "pretenders" blaspheme when you speak of promoting Christianity and you refuse to hold people accountable for God's greatest law. The law above ALL laws is THAT Golden Rule. In business and ALL affairs -the Golden Rule is THE LAW. American businesses that take jobs and run around the world to enslave people, destroy lives, torture, and murder should go to hell. That is the law. Choose a side BB! Speak of God- speak against tyranny, oppression, slavery. Speak against murder.

      Braudboy describes himself as a realist! This shows to what extent our country has sunk. We attack a country because they have much oil under the pretense of helping their people, destroying not only their infrastructure but perhaps a million lives in the process.

      Coincidentally making the former VP's company in charge of handling the monies provided for the criminal actions! The Christians are their own worst enemies as evidenced in the so-called "mosque" controversy.

      Bush was elected by the religious right and they still feel proud of the misery caused by the cretin. I hope they end up in the same place he does. If god rewards Dubya for his actions, I want no part of heaven!

      Oh....and Katie, I heard you talk about the hatred of right-wing news, and you forgot to mention the main-stream or Left-wing news hatred. I am sure you meant to mention it, so I thought I would remind you. And I realize you are not for socialism,...just some form of making sure everybody gets their equal share and no one has more than anyone else. OK. I mean I probably dont deserve more than my neighbor who sleeps in late and goes fishing and gets drunk all the time while I get up early to work and work late and work weekends and sacrifice and save my money and invest my money. We both probably should just have equal amounts of money to make it fair....RIGHT?

      You are craving Shangri-La or Utopia. I guess there is nothing wrong with dreaming. I am more of a realist. Our world cannot possibly obtain this status of harmony and fairness. What I am telling you is that American-style capitalism is the best system ever implemented in our world's entire existence. Yes, you can pick it apart if your expectation is perfection. Otherwise, you can only conclude that America has done the best job of acquiring wealth and status and power for its nation, while bringing up the poor and disadvantaged to a level never achieved in any other land. As human nature is involved, you will always have greed, and favoritism and injustice at times. Blacks, as a people have thrived in America as nowhere else in the world. THe facts speak for themselves, Mickey.....America is the greatest country in the world today, and probably in all of history. Our goodwill and compassion have embraced the whole world. Quit looking for perfection and realize that we only need to improve on the greatest system in place on this earth....American capitalism. I do think the main improvement would be to fight for Christianity's place of honor to be restored in America. We need God's blessing to carry out this endeavor of leading the world.

      Katiewhowaited!!! You're firing on all cylinders. You are right. You are aware! God bless you!

      Randy Godwin- yes Sir! Both parties are wrong. There are no Democrats after elections. The business will have its way no matter who sits in the oval office or congress. America needs to address the issue that both parties give business what business wants.

      Jane Bovary - you're right- those poor-houses didn't work so well. the "reconstruction of the south" didn't work either. Slavery was outlawed, yet blacks were picked up on mild charges amounting to nothing and then had a debt that could only be paid off with their deaths. Some were chained together 24/7 and died that way.

      Joe Badtoe- God bless you! God bless you! Shout it from the roof! The fact is "thieves", aliens, some evil has taken over our world and they are organized.

      I think we know who's living in ivory towers.

      Braudboy- the court system of the United States has never worked one day. We are the moat imprisoned nation on earth. Slavery didn't work for everybody. The killing of the Indians didn't work for the Indians. Hawaii is a country occupied by the US. The American companies like United Fruit didn't work for the people of Latin America, Central America, South America, and Cuba. Capitalism hasn't worked for the hundreds of thousands of people in East Timor who have been killed by M16s made in America. You continue with little insults. The "Ivory Tower"? You and a few others could hold your party lines and condemn evil when you see it. You have no validity. You cannot recruit other idiots like yourself with this crap you drone out. You have no facts. You have only insults. And you are obviously corrupt. Obviously because you cannot, you will not condemn evil. You've called me names. I told you I would recipricate with whatever action to prove you wrong about work ethic or whatever issues you want to settle. So far you are a nasty dog biting at heels.

      If Capitalism worked nobody would be so poor that they live in squalor and go hungry. What capitalist model was in operation during the Sub Prime rip off? what captalist model was Madoff working with? Those capitalsts who ran Enron, you know the ones that encouraged employees to invest in shares in the company when they knew the ship was sinking? Resulting in those employees losing their hard earned wages and eventually their jobs. Capitalism is Darwinism in that it shares the same bullshit of only the strong survive.

      Baudboy - 'America has done pretty well in looking after its poor and needy' -Are you serious??

      A tiny percentage of extraordinarily greedy people who play with invisible money have all but ripped their own country apart and the bill will, as ever, be picked up by consumers so those same greedy few can continue with their destruction. In any other environment this practice of speculation would be seen as insane yet we in the west accept this form of gambling despite the human carnage that it always leaves behind. The life we get should never solely be about individual accumulation of material wealth but a tiny majority has made it so, at the expense and misery of millions.

      Mr. Paladino is clearly a man of vision...yes indeed, because 19th century poorhouses were such a great idea weren't they..? And heaven knows when it comes to the 'great unwashed' personal hygiene is critical.

      Next he'll be saying something like this;

      'I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids'

      Enjoyed this because it does put the blame on both parties! The ultra wealthy run our country and it will get even worse unless we do something about it! Our legal system seems to be at the mercy of a few people with most of the money. The worst politicians money can buy!

      Braudboy, ah, but it seems to me that often we've become like the miners of Appalachia taking on the value of the company store. It's time we all stop "owing to the man." We're behaving as if we have been afflicted with the Stockholm syndrome and have bought into the line of the oppressor. I imagine the billionaires reading all of this and smiling "down" at the little ants bustling about "below" in these discussions. (How is it even possible for someone to acquire thousands upon thousands times the wealth of the average person? I ask you, How it that possible! I'm not a socialist, but something is radically wrong with the system when that can happen. President Roosevelt commented that the people needed to "make him act." We are all responsible here for the imperfections that exist and that are creating a gulf so large between the classes that we won't be able to cross. When we sit back and accept the recent Supreme Court's decision to allow unlimited spending by corporations toward political campaigns, something very dangerous is happening to the country we all are blessed to be a part of. When we accept the concept that unions get in the way of business; when we refuse to understand our part in global warming and our complicity in the housing crisis (I myself agreed to sell my house for much much more than I knew it was worth); when we buy into the illogical hate speech on talk radio and the illogical hyperbole of right wing news, we have met the enemy - and he is us!
