  1. ok... you didnt say that, nor did i direct the original post to it... i attributed it to you after your second post defending it... sorry i cant imagine how that could have happened... some of use are not here keeping score... this is the second day in a row now where i am going to simply start ignoring you, congrats... you have raised the level of debate yet again.

     

    One last word, I wasn't debating you. I was pointing out that you made a back-handed remark to another poster, who I'm sure didn't appreciate being piled on by you and two others. People should feel free to post what they want without being belittled. That poster is probably now reluctant to post other thoughts because of the way you and others responded.

     

    Please ignore me from now on. Isn't there an "ignore poster" function at DD? That way you wouldn't see any of my posts and we would both be content.

  2. lets see...........promoting sarah palin???...........actually listening to or caring what a 14 year old has to say about anything other than, "how do you text with this thing"???...............why is this party so hell bent on looking dumber than the democrats???

     

    He didn't promote Sarah Palin. And he's a very bright and articulate young man. In fact, he said in the second video that he would not support Palin's candidacy for president because she is too partisan but would support My Man Mitch.

     

    He's an up and comer this young man!!!!

  3. If everyone pays an extra 5-10% so everyone has the opportunity to better themselves through a higher education I have no problem with that.

     

    Libs always say this but if that's what you think needs to be done to help other people, why don't you and the millions of other "compassionate" libs send more of your own money NOW to the government? Why do you have to wait for the government to force everyone else who disagrees with you?

     

    This is the problem with libs. They are very compassionate with other people's money but are miserly with their own when it comes to giving charity. On the other hand, conservatives have been shown not only to give more than liberals to charity, but also if they see a particular need somewhere, they IMMEDIATELY reach into their own pocket to fill that need rather than wait for the government to mandate that everyone else should be taxed to fill that need because of some wacky notion of fairness.

     

    It is noble to reach into your own pocket to help the less fortunate but it is despicable and worthy of condemnation to reach into someone else's pocket to help the less fortunate. And that's the basic difference between the socialist dimocrats, liberals, 0bama - and conservatives, republicans, and those who love freedom. Direct transfer payments from earners to those who don't earn anything are immoral and under our form of government unconstitutional.

     

    Libs: Put your own money where your mouth is! Leave the rest of us alone.

  4. Near Fredericksburg , Texas , where there is a large German-speaking population, a farmer walking down a country road notices a man drinking from his pond with his hand.

     

    The farmer shouted: "Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuhen haben dahin gesheissen."

     

    Which means: (Don't drink the water, the cows have sh** in it.)

     

    The man shouted back: "I'm from New York and just down here campaigning for Obama's health care plan, I can't understand you. Please speak in English."

     

    The farmer replied: "Use two hands, you'll get more."

     

  5. Can you provide a link?

     

    I copied and pasted the graph relating to the thread title which is about 2/3 of the way down on this link and it actually posted in full - just the graph in living color. For some reason, it became a bad link:

    Here it is again and I see it in this post at this time:

    Hurry, someone tell me that they see it too!!!!
