GREAT COMMENTS LONER!!! WELL SAID.

Loner and myself [now that I'm a conservative], we don't care about your logic and facts much, dumb libs!! We talk about 'nobama' and 'oz' and stuff, and then we high five!!

OH, and WE DON'T CARE if the libs are the ones who are open to new ideas like letting 2 homosexuals who love each other get married, we STILL are going to say that the libs are the ones who are close minded, even though it really doesn't make alot of sense!!!

Stupid liberals.

Yeah, wasted time "hero worship of the Great and Wonderful Oz" Writing that is wasted time. I see no response about what Obama has cost Badnewsbear so I guess he realizes that he best to better fact checking.

Badnewsbear, I knew you couldn't come up with one cent this administration has cost you. Just more hypothetical hogwash. A fee here and a fee there - tell me what "fees" have never gone up during a republican administration? If we are going to discuss fees we will find just as many on both sides that have risen and stayed the same. So another question: how many guns are you going to have to give to the government? ZERO, that's how many! Yet, the righties rant and rave about "don't you take my guns away." When there are no big issues to complain about (eg: starting an unnecessary war, killing its leader and leaving it in turmoil and leaving it friendly with your REAL enemies) then you have to cry "don't take my guns! Well, how many are you giving up when our troops come knocking at your door to search your house? How lame.

Howard, like your friends, you truly do have a reading/comprehension issue. Please point out, apecifically, where I stated that my taxes have gone up? What I said is that they don't need any new ideas on how to tax people. The idea being that every time you turn around the dems are pushing a tax increase or for increased fees which are indeed forms of taxes. Proposals for junk food taxes, soda taxes, ammo taxes and on and on and on. It's not just Federal, it's at every level. Any way they can think of to take more, or control behavior (ie. sin taxes) is what they are for and what Cyprus is doing is nothing short of highway robbery, which means it will be in some Dems files just waiting for the right crisis to whip it out. This is perfectly exhibited by the federal gun control proposal. You're not really naive enough to believe that they wrote that up quick do you? No, they had in in the hopper just waiting for the right tragedy to come along so they could pounce on it.

"Like they needed any other ideas on how to tax the people further." Tell me, Badnewsbear, exactly how have your taxes increased? I suppose you will use the FICA tax that was temporarily decreased from its onset. Where have you had to pay 1 cent more since January, 2009?

Watch out! How long before Mr. Tax & Spend and his trolls, Dirty Harry and Nasty Nancy, try to follow the lead of Cyprus? Cyprus just decided to "take" 10% from all bank accounts over $100,000 and 6.75% from everyone else's bank accounts. All in the name of covering their outrageous debts!! Like they needed any other ideas on how to tax the people further.

Far Right Publications? Seriously? When did Business Insider Magazine become a Far Right Publication? Also, I have no complaints with people getting an unemployment check, they've earned it by working and I don't recall ever saying I supported giving funds to Oil Companies. Not sure where you got those lies. Typical Lib accusations when you've got nothing to support your claims. What I do have a problem with is the disease of Generational Welfare. I support ending ALL welfare programs and implementing workfare programs. Why should a useful citizen receive 26 weeks of unemployment, which they've earned by working, but slugs with no ambition that want to "job" the system live on welfare for their entire lives. It's pathetic and is crushing our country.

Badnewsbear, Yawn, any more quotes from mindless far right publications?

You might be a far right wing nut if you complain about someone collecting $500 a week unemployment while looking for work but you don't give a flip about subsidizing oil companies 4 billion dollars a year.

That is a fact - put that in your pipe and smoke it!

"How Clinton Destroyed The Economy The bottom line is that the signature achievement of the Clinton years (the surplus) turns out to have been a deep negative. For this drag on GDP was being counterbalanced by low household savings, high household debt, and the real revving up of the Fannie and Freddie debt boom that had a major hand in fueling the boom that ultimately led to the downfall of the economy."

"I think it is safe to say that we are still suffering the harmful effects of the Clinton budget surpluses," says Stephanie Kelton, an economics professor at the University of Missouri Kansas City.

Howard, it is clear that you are a mindless drone with absolutely no education or background in economics, who sits around and listens to O's propaganda outlets. First off, you haven't done your homework. It's accepted fact that the whole problem started as a result of the housing bubble, whish is Clinton's. Bush did no one any favors by spending way too much and this friggin' idiot doubled what he spent and there's no end in sight. All this admin has done is lower interest rates to the point where money is basically free, so it's flooding into the market causing prices to rise. This only helps those with money in the market, which isn't the majority. What do you think is going to happen when things reach a point where they need to bring rates back up? It'll be disastrous. The only thing this idiot will ever get a thank you from me for, is if he resigns.

You are the one in denial that your beloved Bush didn't cause this mess after Clinton balanced the budget. We would be in our nation's worst depression if it wasn't for the stimulus. Every indicator shows we are on the road to recovery - so deny away Badnewsbear, deny away. While you are at it you can send President Obama a thank you letter that you are now not standing in a bread line.

Howard, your stupid hat is apparently on permanently. You brought up "Bill". "don't you watch your other buddy Bill?" Helloooo??? And you really are in denial. How can you even try to spin the fact that this lousy POS has added more debt in 4 years than Bush did in 8? You can't and your BS about war and infrastructure is nothing short of deflection. You defend the indefensible and you support policies that are crushing this country under a mountain of debt that we'll never be able to pay back. How about your lively party finally proposing a budget, after being in violation of Federal law for 4 years, and it NEVER balances. SPEND, SPEND, SPEND, TAX, TAX, TAX!!! That's all they know. Useless wastes of living tissue.

Badnewsbear, what the freak are you talking about? "Bill"? I guess my stupid hat is on today. I blamed infrastructure as our debt problem? You better get back on your meds. If anything I blame 2 wars Bush started unnecessarily for a good portion of the debt. And now that we have drones that will save many combat lives you conservatives are screaming we are going to bomb a cafe here at home. Don't be ignorant by saying "Holder said we might". If Bush had used the drones they would be a great asset. Helicopters with living people in harms way or drones - seems like a no brainer to me. Then again us liberals don't use our brains, now do we? And Ted Kennedy was, and will go down in history as a great politician!

And how is calling the gift of $250 million and fighter jets to a know terrorist organization "spinning" it? When I give to the cancer society, I'm supporting cancer research. By that logic, when you give money and weapons to a terrorist, you are supporting what? That's right terrorism.

Howard, I didn't see "Bill", but I'm sure he let someone provide their opinion, but I'm also sure that he quickly corrected them. If you are so naive to think that all of this debt is a result of infrastructure updates, you really need to wake up. Have we forgotten the famous "shovel ready wasn't quite as shovel ready as we thought" moment? All of it was wasted. How about the millions upon millions wasted to try to boost green energy companies, all of which went bankrupt. You are kidding yourself if you think this debt is "better" than the debt of previous president's. Exactly what flavor what the kool-aid the day they provided that talking point to you? I've heard it repeated over and over again by the lib/dem talking heads and it's absolute nonsense. Debt is debt and by the time he's done, our debt will meet or exceed the total GDP number and, if the economy does recover and interest rates start rising, there is no way they can cover the interes

Really Howard, Clinton didn't cause the housing collapse due to lowering requirements for a mortgage? This is a NY Times article from 1999 saying he did and people expressing concerns about the problems it might create. *******ww w.nytimes.co m/1999/09/30/business/fannie-mae-eases-credit-to-aid-mortgage-lending.htm l

OK, good. I don't understand the Bush is 3 steps better than Obama but good response. Thanks. I lean 95% left because of the republican platform, what it stands for and how the tea party extremes are leading the party now. A great example is John McCain. He was such a great man. He went across party lines with Ted Kennedy and used to really care about people. Now all he cares about is sucking up to that tea party nonsense. He has switched many positions to get on the good side of the tea party. It really is a shame. I used to like him a lot. So, equal rights, trickle down proven not to work, and tea party fanatics will keep me leaning left and I don't see the republican party changing much - the recent cpac just proved that.

loneriderrr1, The single payer system is what the democrats wanted all along! The "Medicare for all program." You are very progressive in this area. Obamacare was the next best thing that could have received the 60 votes necessary to pass the Senate without a filibuster. So yes, to you too: Go out and support the single payer system. I didn't realize you were that liberal. Congrats on this one - now how about some civil rights and investing in our future by rebuilding our infrastructure?

What about ER's saving a lot of $ that you are paying for? What about the millions that will have health INSURANCE and save lives. This bill will save lives but you are against it because you are partisan - plain and simple. If Bush made this part of his Medicare part D program you would have loved it! I know this because you can't answer any of these questions - just can't wait for your next gibberish, or non response at all, which is most typical.

I thought you might bring up SCOTUS. You are so predictable. If you don't go along with Obamacare then yes, there is a penalty and this penalty is called a tax by SCOTUS. Like I asked before, what do you think of companies with 50 or more employees that does not offer health INSURANCE? More backtalk now, loneriderrr1?
