    Idiot, and heartless.

    Jan Brewer, of Arizona--home to unwed mother Bristol Palin.... "gasp!"

    She cuts medicare and people die. Says Arizona can't afford it.

    Meanwhile, she gives tax breaks to business. That, Arizona can afford.

    Profits over People....Money over Moms.
    She is an heartless idiot and a shill for corporate America and Prisons-for-Profit.

    Idiot of the century. Republican from Arizona.

    Care for a flight shuttle to Mars Jan? I'll buy the ticket.

      No matter what is said, there is no way to appease everyone, so she choose to appease wallets. It's absolutely distasteful! I wonder how these politicians would feel if they had to live like an average citizen lives?

      What is the point of bringing up the fact that Bristol Palin is an unwed mother?  I'm guessing the idea of praising her for being responsible enough to care for the life she created is a bit much to ask.

      If she had aborted the child, I'm sure you'd be singing her praises....

        I think the point is that the Palin family preach that sex should only come after marriage, and yet their own daughter cannot even manage that.

          Okay, so Bristol screwed up (no pun intended).  Big deal.  She isn't the first one to make a mistake, and I'm not aware of many people, even the Palins, who claim to be perfect guardians of morality.

          Bristol should be applauded for taking responsibility for her actions and the life she and what's his name created.  She is doing what is right and making the best of a bad situation.  Only the lowest among us would try to turn that into something bad.

            I have nothing against Bristol personally. She's not the first young woman to give birth to a baby in a less than ideal situation and I'm sure she won't be the last.

            I do think that the fact she still travels to schools to give speeches on why kids should stay abstinent is completely laughable, however. How can any teenager be expected to listen to someone when they don't even take their own advice?

              By that logic, ex drug addicts and ex convicts who go around telling kids not to do what they do and to learn from their experiences shouldn't be believed either.

                Except ex-drug addicts and convicts frame what they did as a bad thing which had bad consequences. I would be quite appalled to hear Bristol Palin say she regrets her child and views him or her as a bad consequences of her actions.

                  Not all the ex addicts and ex convict frame it as simplistically as good and bad.  They acknowledge that they have made bad decisions in the given circumstances.  I would say that Bristol does the same thing.  It was a bad decision and it had consequences which affected her life.

        No actually---my own daughter was a teenaged unwed mom. But geuss what? You Righty's didn't call my daughter responsible. you said she should have kept her legs closed! And this Righty mouthpiece in Boston, Howie Carr, called babies like my daughter's "bastards".

        The tune changed when a Republican kid had a baby out of wedlock. It changed about 100 degrees.

        Hypocrits!

          Oh, give me a break.  I'm not aware of anybody on the right (other than a few fringe loons) who would make such comments. 

          Teenage pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy is never a desirable thing, but when it does and these young mothers step up and do what is right, they should be applauded, and I don't think you will find a "righty" on these boards who will disagree with me.

          And actually, the term "bastard" is meant to refer to a baby out of wedlock.  I disagree with the use of it, but it has historically been the accepted term.

            Of course you are not. Your ears are stopped up to it.
            You have your fingers in them going "lalalalalala".

            BELIEVE me...where do you think the werm Welfare Queen originated?
            Ummm, weren't those girls good and responsible too?

            SNORT. NO--they were called low-lifes who just want to live off the State.

            To a certain extent I agree with you, but if young women haven't learned the first time and keep having baby after baby and with different fathers and none of these parents can provide for their children.  It's more than a bad decision.

          Wow, what a remarkably eloquent and thought provoking post, Ralph.

          Liberals are all about freedom of choice, but apparently the choice to have your baby and care for it is not one that is applauded by the left.....

      A couple of years ago they closed the rest stops on the Interstate in Arizona. The government there is Tea Tard heaven. The only hope is that it will self-destruct before it completely wrecks the state.

    I'm a big fan of Brewer! I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision to cut medicare. Medicare costs are a problem in many states and will be a bigger problem under Obamacare. I know you think the rich should pay more but if you tax them too much they will leave as they have done in NY and NJ. Cutting taxes keeps them in the state where they will invest and create jobs. More jobs means more people paying taxes... broadening the tax base will lead to greater revenues that can be used to expand safety net programs. The money isn't there and if the states go bankrupt no one will get any benefits.

      How come it isn't hard to cut corporate taxes? Why is that so easy?

      1. lady_love158 profile image58
        lady_love158posted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Its easy because everyone benefits! You think corporations pay taxes? They don't they pass them along in the price of their goods and services... cutting their taxes allows them to be more profitable while keeping prices you pay stable. Right now America has the second highest corporate taxes in the world. These companies that you hear about sitting on piles of cash have a lot of that cash off shore and wont repatriate it because of the high corporate tax rate... that's one factor holding the recovery back and killing jobs.

        Meanwhile your beloved democrats passed a stimulus bill that kept union teachers employed and paid for it by cutting food stamps! You want to talk heartless t what's more heartless then letting the poor go hungry so some teacher can have health care for life and retirement?

          Well you know Lalo, the libturds do think that the poor should stay hungry because union democrats bring in the votes and are entitled to those benefits. lol

            Actually it's liberals who are usually in favour of greater benefits and welfare for the poor and the vulnerable.

                wormdoposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                As a liberal, I support greater contributions to welfare and benefits in the form of tax. As a taxpayer, I would obviously be paying towards these contributions. So your argument just fell flat.

                  Flightkeeperposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                  If you want to voluntarily give more of your money to welfare and benefits in the form of tax that's fine.  What I object to is that the more you earn, the more tax you pay even though the services you get are no better.  So no, my argument didn't fall flat, you just didn't think it through.  lol

                    No, you backtracked to add more to your argument. Your original argument was that liberals are only in favor of welfare so long as they don't have to pay for it themselves. I stated that I am in favor of paying it in the form of tax, therefore your original argument fails to hold water. Simple logic.

              Yes liberals are in favor of creating a class society with a dependent population that will continue to elect these fools! The welfare model is a proven failure just go back and look at the Johnson era when as a result of his policies teen pregnancies exploded and single mothers became the predominent structure in the ghettos.

      I seem to recall that either NJ or a couple of counties in NJ have the highest per capita income in the country.

      New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states in the United States of America, with a per capita income of $27,006 (2000) and a personal per capita income of $40,427 (2003). Its median household income is $55,146 (2000), ranked first in the country, and its median family income is $65,370 (2000), the second highest in the country. The median value of an owner-occupied housing unit is $170,800 (2000), ranked fourth in the country. New Jersey has the highest percentage of millionaire residents in the country with 7.12% of New Jersey households having $1 million or more liquid or investible assets, not including equity in homes.

        I know you being a far left liberal obviously assume you're more intelligent than us knuckle dragging conservatives but the data you posted is a snap shot in time and you don't say when that data is from. What you really need to look at Ralph are trends, current trends as depicted here:

        I thought this was common knowlege since its been in the news quite a bit since the election of Christie... but then liberals are never really very good at accepting reality! Maybe next time you decide to do research for me you'll check something other than the NYT.

              I'll click on it again.

              "Between 2004 and 2008, there was a net loss of $70 billion due to the affluent moving away."

              As I recall this was during the second Bush administration. However, it's true that the NJ governors during the period were Democrats. Jon Corzine is a former CEO of Goldman Sachs and not a far left liberal. I don't know whether he raised taxes or not.
