  • I do believe, the right, and specifically the Christian right, whatever that means, give more directly to the poor, than the left, or more specifically the atheist left. The difference here Guillermo, you want to mandate who gives (TAKES) and which group receives (purchased votes).

    The Christian principle is to give, freely give. Not every Christian gives, and not every atheist hoards. But the key word is "Give". When given the opportunity, good people give.

    Your moral values suggest it is better to take, than to merely give. It would be better to take, by force if necessary, to share the misery.

    I say, allow charitable contributions to be 100% tax free, there would be a lot less hunger then.

    Guillermo - you error is that you don't know the Word. I'm sure you've read it, maybe even studied in, but - the Word finds no place in you because of your hate and blissful ignorance.

    I don't recall Christ, or Paul, or any Christian or Jewish Prophet, ever proclaiming that Christians were to give to people who were capable of taking care of themselves. We were charged with caring for widows, or the sick, or the needy.

    You libs pour our money upon folks who should be caring for themselves in order to establish a permanent underclass of the needy, for votes and political power.

    Hey, and there are a bunch of Guillermo's out there in the World. Folks that feel that they are entitled to money I earn. Why? Just because, that's why.

    I am proud to be a Capitalist Guillermo. I freely admit it. Why are you a coward and refuse to admit to all of us that you are a Communist? Really, we already know you're a commie.

    White collar crime? LOL. You poor fool. You are so clueless and brainwashed that it is hard to have a real conversation with you. Hate rules you. In fact, you may be the smartest dummy I've ever run into.

  • If only I knew all our tax money was being spent on clothing, feeding, and sheltering the poor, no one would be happier than me. Instead it has become the re-elections slush fund for the politicians. More and more money is being sent to washington, and the poor remain naked, hungry, and homeless. The problem isn't the taxpayer it's the pols.

  • Gearjammer and the NeoCon Chorus,

    It seems "Commie/Nazi/Socialist/Facist/Kenyan" President Obama screwed up again.

    "The Dow Jones industrial average closed above 11,000 points on Monday for the first time since the start of the [Bush/Cheney] financial crisis.

    The move above 11,000 was the latest milestone in a rallythat has brought Wall Street back from the brink of economiccollapse. It came as investors welcomed a long-awaited rescue plan for Greece and amid signs that American companies were poised to report strong first-quarter profit, with earnings season beginning in earnest this week.

    The Dow ended the day at 11,006.19, rising about 9 points or 0.08 percent. It last closed about 11,000 in September 2008."

    Remember, Jan. 20, 2009 -- The Dow was somewhere south of Patagonia.

    Another terrible bit of news for you Sam, the Ukraine has agreed to dismantle its entire nuclear arsenal.

    Another abject failure for that incompetent Hillary and this terrible administration.

    Meanwhile, the Sierra Club's former favorite uber-liberal Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrich, is still trying to convince America of two things:

    (1) He almost won the "War on America" but that incompetent Clinton balanced the budget and started paying off the national debt anyway;

    (2) Newt has a functioning moral code and once told the truth. Just can't find the evidence.

    [Think I'm being mean to Newt. Check the History. Before the Good Ol' Boys in the Georgia version of the Republican party redistricted him out of the only liberal district in the state, Newt Gingrich was a firebrand liberal.

    When Newt ended up with a super-conservative district, he changed political believes overnight and became a super-conservative.

    Now that's the kind of integrity the Tea Party needs to go along with their armed revolt and taking control with the authority of their muzzle loaders.

  • Eddie B,

    Madoff survives in the Federal Prison at Butner, NC in the hospital, recovering from getting his tail whipped by some other convict.


    Sam and Chunky,

    That terrible liberal from Minnesota, tried to get the "Work for your public assistance" concept into federal Welfare Requirements in the 1950s and 60s.

    That provision almost made it into law with LBJ's support while Hubert Humphrey was V.P. and President of the Senate.

    As usual, SOLID Republican opposition and filibuster threats prevented passage.

    The GOP leadership could not explain their opposition at the time and there never has been a logical explanation for their opposition to people working to the best of their ability for being fed, clothed, housed and entertained by working taxpayers.

    Efforts in the years since by Democrats and Liberals to eliminate Cable TV, booze and automobiles/gas/oil/tires/service from allowable expenditures for welfare recipients were blocked by Republicans, lead by NeoCons.

    Those added IRS agents have been needed for decades. now they can help audit compliance with Health Insurance obligations.


    An Uber-Conservative lawyer and political leader, owner of a top-line Harley Davidson and proud opponent of all insurance, loses control of his "hawg" on a Socialistic Interstate traveling at a conservative 105 mph at 2 a.m.

    The hospital ER and Intensive Care costs were at $200,000 and climbing, when he died.


    YOU ARE ALSO supporting his family on welfare.

    Seems he avoided paying SSI by routing all his income through legal entities and avoiding personal income -- never paying Income Tax, SSI, Workman's Comp, Unemployment Insurance -- you get the picture.

    Handing his wife cash for the household expenses, he avoided a paper trail proving he was receiving income from anywhere.

    His UBER-CONSERVATIVE cost to the hated political system will probably exceed $2-MILLION by the time the youngest of his five children finishes high school.

    Why does the country need more IRS auditors? That is a prime example. Tracking health insurance would have shown he did not have any, that he was illegally dodging taxes and hiding income.

    Why should Sam, Mickel, Chunky, BooJoom or Mrs. Smith pay taxes to cover medical costs for high income earners who prefer toys, illicit lovers, tropical vacations or sex tourism to responsibility?

    Most states require auto liability insurance along with registration, so those of us they harm don't have to pick up the bills.

    It is known as mandated individual responsibility.

    The new Health Insurance mandate is exactly the same.

    If you are capable of providing your own health insurance, you must.

    If you are not, a system for covering your costs; other than doctors and hospitals getting stuck for those costs; will be in place to protect those doctors, nurses and hospitals.

    The other need, A STANDARD INSURANCE CLAIM REPORTING FORM, electronically generated and transmitted -- going to every health insuror.

    Reduce medical practice records creation and filing costs by at least 75%.

    That savings would dwarf any benefits from "Tort Reform" which would protect incompetent or careless doctors.

    WOW! Agreed.

    Hey Sam, I can tell when you hit a homer, 'cuase these libs go crazy. Guillermo and his pal Loud have never had to make a payroll. They have no idea how to contribute to society. I will bet you a buck Sam 'ole boy that Guillermo has never paid a dime in income tax.

    Guillermo you and your dense pal Loudmouth were going to promote Sam's blogs to your Facebook buddies. I think that is a good idea. You may be shocked to discover that not all of your friends are as mentally poluted as you. They probably tolerate you, rather than argue with a closed leftist mind.

    Sam, also, just so you'll know, Barack and Company have driven me out of business after 32 years. The bright side is that I won't have to pay all the higher taxes the Socialists have in mind for anyone with a real job.

    Now that I have time, I think I will infiltrate the SCIU and ACORN.

    Leo - Nice to hear from you again buddy. Sorry to hear about your business. Obama and gang have declared war on real energy production in America, so I wondered how long you would be able to hang on.

    I have two brothers in the oil and gas business, both have lost their jobs. This is the first time in 35 years either one of these two men have not been working.

    I must say there Leo, the idea of Guillermo not paying a single dollar of income tax was an easy call bro! Most likey he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and has never had to struggle to do anything, accept make sense.

    The first time Guillermo ever has to face real difficulty, he'll wet his pants.

    Keep the faith Leo.

    Guillermo - Even though it will not do any good to try and reason with you, I will answer some of your silliness, so that some of your friends can learn what a wacko you really are.

    I laughed at your white collar crime assertions, (what a robot you are - do you consult your commie professors b4 you go on a date?) because you are wrong, as usual.

    To Guillermo's friends - if he really has any - Guillermo does not know what he is talking about. He is a leftist puppet, and my guess is, he'd like you to join in his craziness.

    Guillermo says that white collar crime has costs more than the welfare state. That is an outright lie. Already, leftists in this country have sucked the producers for over eight trillion in wealth re-distribution, for the poor, allegedly. And yet, after all this wealth re-distribution, commies like Guillermo say that nothing has been done. He wants to steals trillions more.

    White Collar Crime? What do you call the crimes, thefts, mismanagement, bribes, waste, and sheer skulduggery that our liberal bureaucracy has committed?

    Bernie Madoff is a pup compared to liberal Democrats. Bernie is a rank amateur compared to Chris Dodd, Barnie Fawank, Barack Obama, ACORN and SCIU.

    Sorry Guillermo, your outrage stinks.

    To Guillermo's friends - has Guillermo ever produced a product or service? Has Guillermo ever employed anyone, and been responsible for a payroll? Has Guillermo ever had to put his *** on the line to a bank to keep his business open? Has Guillermo ever contributed anything worthwhile to society other than handing out bowls of soup that someone else provided?

    Guillermo is typical of leftists. They know everything, they think, because they are able to parrot some Marxist professor.

    I know it doesn't make sense, dear friends of Guillermo, but he is the type of guy that will not mind going to hell, as long as he can take a bunch of you with him. If a fight comes, he'll run for help. You'll fight alone.

    Mr. Rockwell, your ignorance is showing. I will not get unemployment benefits because I was self employed. Why didn't you know that?

    Thanks Guillermo for letting me know I am right on the money. You are so wrong, Socialism has always been a ball and chain around the neck of growth, freedom and liberty. I find it sad that you are too brainwashed and mind-numbed to get it. Your are a Communist, you're just to gutless to admit it.

    Hey there - friends of Guillermo, check out the Communist Party website. Read Sam Webb. I think you'll find that Guillermo fits in nicely to their way of thinking.

    And Guillermo - You bring it pal. You can't hurt me chump. I have a Savior, you have Obama. I'll be fine. Bring it chump - bring it now.

    Sam, you will remember I am sure, that it was Guillermo that did not know the difference between profit and greed. That is because Guillermo has never done anything that would produce profit.

    Carl, I will not get unemployment, because I don't want it. I'll take care of myself, thank you. I do not need your confused and corrupt government to take care of me. As far as my employees go, I will be continuing their salary for quite some time, while they seek other jobs. Actually, I have found work for almost all of them with other employers.

    I did this without money stolen from others in the name of compassion.

    Not all of us Carl, bow on bended knee to the government. Government is not my god, it may be yours, but it is not mine.

  • Hey GEARJAMMER and Company;

    That dang incompetent President keeps screwing up your diatribes.


    The Dow finished about 11,000 Monday and Tuesday.

    Don't those Wall Street money grubbers realize Backassward Enrique knows absolutely that the U.S. is broke??


    The that terrible Democrat comes up with what U.S. presidents have been trying to achieve for 50 years.


    "President Obama persuaded 46 countries Tuesday to sign on to a plan to put the world's nuclear material beyond the reach of terrorists within four years....."

    "The governments attending Obama's Nuclear Security Summit agreed to take their own measures to safeguard nuclear material used in bombs, civilian nuclear reactors and power plants, and to strengthen international efforts. The gathering raised the profile of an issue long considered a sideshow in discussions of international security."

    "This is an ambitious goal, and we are under no illusions it will be easy. But the urgency of the threat and the catastrophic consequences of even a single act of nuclear terrorism demand an effort that is at once bold and pragmatic," Obama said at a news conference."


    Sam, recognizing it is hard for a neo-con to wrap his head around complex ideas, this is what is going on.


    1) Those Wall Street Capitalists realize the economy is getting better, faster than any of us could have expected.

    2) The leaders of 46 countries TRUST this U.S. president. That trust largely comes from 14 months of constant meeting and listening to others.

    This president does not fly to France and lecture the French on cheese and wine making. He flies to France to ask about cheese and wine making -- and then listens.

    He does not fly to New Zealand to lecture about wool production. He asks about New Zealand wool production -- and then listens.

    He does not fly to the Arab world to lecture about Arabian horses, camel races and Berber nomads.

    He asks about Arabian horses, or camel racing, or Berber nomads -- and listens.

    President Obama invested tremendous effort and secured participation from every qualified professionalwilling to help on Health Care Reform.

    Those hated Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lead efforts which saw more than 200 Republican amendments included in HCR.

    The conservative offering was attack, attack, attack and attack with every conceivable lie invented by the hugely profiteering insurance companies.

    FOR PROFIT HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES -- Operative term 'FOR PROFIT'-- collectively had $2.5-BILLION net profit in 1988.

    That same segment of the insurance business, collectively had $12.5-BILLION net profit in 2008.

    DubYah's years was worth somewhere around $50-BILLION added profit for private health insurance companies.

    Those companies were strongly profitable and successful in 1998. Like the oil company buddies of DubYah and Shotgun Cheney, they were a lot more profitable from 2000 to 2008.

    How did Sam's profits do after the DubYah years?

    Enjoy contributing three times as much to your own health insurance cost?

    Were you absolutely thrilled with $5.00 to $6.00 per gallon diesel?

    What was the last year, you were allowed to vote yourself a Million Dollar, or Five Million Dollar or Twenty Million Dollar bonus?

    Especially awarding yourself a huge bonus out of Taxpayer's Money provided to save the company you had helped destroy.

    The "Captains" rewarded themselves handsomely for running their ship onto the rocks, with the Bush/Cheney TARP bail-outs.

    Then their fellow conservatives blamed the new guy for their old guy's screw ups.

    D'est la vie!!!

    How did you do from June 2007 through March 2010?

  • Gearjammer,

    I'm sorry, but that incompetent President is still messing things up for the neo-cons.

    "WASHINGTON - Sales at U.S. retailers rose more strongly than expected in March as consumers stepped up purchases of vehicles and a wide range of goods, government data showed on Wednesday, suggesting a broadening of the manufacturing-led economic recovery.

    The Commerce Department said total retail sales jumped 1.6 percent, the largest increase since November, from an upwardly revised 0.5 percent rise in February. Sales in February were previously reported to have gained 0.3 percent."

  • By the way Burke Head,

    I realize it is a concept you have not yet grasped, but the Commerce Department's figures on increased Retail Sales involves MAIN STREET, not WALL STREET.

    I supposed we should not expect you to grasp economic dynamics when you confuse streets.

    Apparentnly your are also geogaphically confused.

    The commonly referred to MAIN SREET, would be in McCook, while WALL STREET is in lower Manhattan, just above Battery Park.

    Oh yes, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs within New York City, which is at the southeast tip of New York City, between the Hudson and East Rivers.

    That is at the south end and west side of New England in New York State.

    You can find a GOOGLE map which will illustrate.

  • Sam,

    Things are sure going to Hell under this Communist President:

    The Dow remains above 11,000, despite a drop from the Goldman Sachs defrauding investors reports.

    New construction starts are up nationally.

    Retail sales are up.

    Manufacturers orders for tools and materials are up.

    U.S. exports are up.

    Countries willing to share combat roles in Afghanistan are increasing.

    The Nuclear Reduction treaty is approved by 46 nations, signed by the U.S. and Russia.

    Despite GOP and Conservative guarantees to block passage, the Health Care Reform Act is law.

    The U.S. combat role in Iraq is winding down and our combat troops are pulling out ahead of schedule.

    Despite conservative blockading of administration nominees, recess appointments (Just as with DubYah's hundreds of recess appointments. Only DubYah used recess appointments for spots where no nominees had been presented to the Senate -- Slight difference], key managers are now at work.

    Now if we can just get the HELL NO party to allow straight up and down votes on the more than 100 judicial nominees which already have solid bi-partisan approval and get our courts working.

  • Eduardo,

    We are shocked!!!

    Here and you had everyone convinced Rush the Limburger is your hero.

    But then he has already proven his integrity, hasn't Lord HaHa Limbaugh?

    He promised to go live in Costa Rica, yet his overstuffed posterior still remains in the U.S. of A., which he promised to foresake to live elsewhere, if the hated Health Care Reform bill is signed into law.

    Of course, some of us skeptics figured that Rush the Drug Abuser was lying about that departure, as he has lied about everything else.

    Hey, maybe he will move to Tijuana and use his fortune to buy up all the drugs there.

    I know, just California Dreamin'.
