Posted on 10/06/14 at 07:01 pm in response to Wealthiest giving less to charity

As "tax the rich" was implemented by both the State and Federal government, the rich then had less money and one of the first "cuts" made by them was the amount given to charity. This is certainly no surprise and some charities worried about this exact thing happening. These same charities also are worried about a cap on the charitable deductions that will also reduce the amount that they will receive from many donors.

Planned Parenthood stands to lose a lot of money if women don't have to go through them to purchase their birth control.

If birth control pills aren't one of the most studied and safe options for birth control, why are they promoted so much by organizations like--Planned Parenthood?

Government spending continues to push the country further and further into prosperity (and debt) and it becomes more apparent every day that we are getting more and more for our money. Remember, every dollar paid in unemployment returns something like $1.20 or $1.30 according to Rep. Pelosi.

Posted on 09/11/14 at 08:08 pm in response to Reacting to Obama’s speech, Rand Paul throws Hannity a curve

"Judging by his calm, weary, almost diffident tone, it didn’t seem like he aspired to any big act of persuasion."

Pretty much covers it I guess.

I guess.

I agree to a point with Rand Paul Libertarian types as you appear to be that we should mind our own business and stay out of other world conflicts. Perhaps you can convince our President and our Senators to stop these continuing war efforts.

"Every thinking American" doesn't leave much wiggle room but I'm sure you have the cites to prove how popular the President's foreign policy is amongst that (apparently) small group of people.

Posted on 09/11/14 at 08:14 pm in response to Why workers are coming together

"Three of the five fastest-growing occupations between now and 2022 projected by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics are our jobs: home care aide, personal care assistant, and fast food worker."

Yet the answer is to make college more affordable (subsidized). This is our future, embrace it rather than pretend that it will get better.

Global climate change is a good thing if you're jobless and homeless and living outdoors as more and more of our citizens (including those under 18) are. Minnesota will soon be the warm Omaha!

That clears things up. Which House votes were those?

Senator Franken hasn't done much with all these great ideas in only six years, in the majority party, with a Democrat in the White House.

Six years later and it is still Bush's fault. So we'll be blaming President Obama in...2024 when the oceans have swallowed up New York city and Los Angeles.
