Thank you for making Jeff K's (What's it like to be chronically offended and chronically offensive?) and Tom W's (Then there's "Dano Shores...YIKES!) points for them.
Yah suure, yuuuu betcha Doncha know. Luke's like snow Doncha theenk, fer suure.
Oh and leaving a family gathering a standard Minnesota good bye should last at least 15 minutes.
Oh and I voted for Jesse Ventura for governor.
Great bar bet. Who is the only politician to lose to both a comedian and a wwf wrestler?
Ahhhh, my old home state my homeland the Socialist Republic of Minnesota.
The State Fair is the bomb though. Local news Channel 9 even mentioned some of the MN state fair food on their 10 o'clock news last night
Oops. Should be do you agree or disagree with that probability. Seems to me there is plenty of nasty from both sides.
Ken M acknowledged that there are republicans who have made nasty comments. I believe you may have missed what I believe was his point. I believe his point was that there are liberals that say and do nasty things as well and then offered a few examples. Do agree or disagree with that probability.
Robert, You are correct. Deficit rising $7T since Bush left office vs. deficit rising $6T while Bush was in office has "not been much better". One might even dare suggest it is worse. Neither result is what we need by the way. Neither party gets bragging rights on this issue.
Looks to me like all those running for political office engage in a little hyperbole from time to time.. Which is worse - suggesting that one's mother could run the Treasury more efficiently or comparing republican presidential candidates to terrorists.
Not that some entitlements and welfare are bad thing (we do tend to over do those here in the good old USA) but I did not see how he endorsed entitlements and welfare based on saying he wanted to create a mechanism for people who are in poverty to move up the economic ladder. You said he wants his mommy to help run things. I guess I didn't get that from the article either.
Sounds like you are not a Ben Carson fan. Based on how Dr. Carson has described his mother it sounds like she is one heck of a mother. I find him refreshing. I also find it refreshing that he does not come from the world of politics. From all appearances Dr. Carson appears to be a decent person. We need more decent people running our country. Not the ideologues we get from both the right and the left.
Eric, You are probably correct about him losing the neocon Republican support. However, in my opinion, if a Republican candidate is going to win the Presidency in 2016 he/she will need the votes independents and moderate democrats more than the votes of the neocons.
A decent person, a moderate, a non politician just might be able to pull it off. Albeit, it would be one heck of a long shot.
Folks on fixed income get basically zero interest. Stock market is schizophrenic. Maybe that matters to Jerry. Bernie wants to raise taxes, so does Hillary. Global warming gang wants to raise electricity rates. Keep one hand on your wallet and the other on your checkbook.
Steve and Cindy,
Totally agree. The media has made a mess out of public dissemination of facts. Almost only sound bites, very little substance. The news is no longer worth watching. The news media used to take pride in the product they put out. Now it appears to be a game to see which "reporter" can shove a microphone in front of some public figures face and ask a gotcha question. Oh well, we get what we deserve. I agree that Kasich is worth a look. He seems like a decent person. I have grown tired of all the political bluster coming from the the current crowd of candidates from both parties. This country needs a decent person to get the majority of the partisan crap eliminated and figure out a way to get things done. I do live in a dream world, I guess.
