Bidens Donate 1.5 Percent of Income to Charity in 2011

It’s the same song each year with these DUMMOCRAPTS. Ya know, it’s a fact Republicans donate more to charity than DUMMOCRAPTS; even rich DUMMOCRATS. The Salvation Army already proved that comparing everyday giving in Sioux City vs. San Francisco. The rich DUMMOCRAPTS would rather hold rich fund raisers for Obummer while ignoring the 99%. DUMMOCRAPTS are always complaing about the rich and religious organizations, but those same groups are the ones who help the poor more than the “spend-crazed” lib progressives who want to steal our money through “redistribution of wealth” so they can spend it unwisely.

Having the bills all in one place painted a certain picture. “If it’s voter ID, it’s ALEC,” says Doug Clopp, deputy director of programs at Common Cause. “If it’s anti-immigration bills written hand-in-glove with private prison corporations, it’s ALEC. If it’s working with the N.R.A. on ‘Shoot to Kill’ laws, it’s ALEC. When you start peeling back state efforts to opt out of the regional greenhouse gas initiative, it’s ALEC.” Adopted in the states, by the time these laws bubble up to the national level, they’re conventional wisdom.

Before you all go off on Ann Rmoney, you should really understand how very hard life was to her

“They were not easy years. You have to understand, I was raised in a lovely neighborhood, as was Mitt, and at BYU, we moved into a $62-a-month basement apartment with a cement floor and lived there two years as students with no income.

“It was tiny. And I didn’t have money to carpet the floor. But you can get remnants, samples, so I glued them together, all different colors. It looked awful, but it was carpeting.

“We were happy, studying hard. Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time.

“The stock came from Mitt’s father. When he took over American Motors, the stock was worth nothing. But he invested Mitt’s birthday money year to year — it wasn’t much, a few thousand, but he put it into American Motors because he believed in himself. Five years later, stock that had been $6 a share was $96 and Mitt cashed it so we could live and pay for education.

“Mitt and I walked to class together, shared housekeeping, had a lot of pasta and tuna fish and learned hard lessons.

Imagine the difficulty of not working, living off of the investment income of your husband that his dad gave him, and eating pasta and tuna.
Have you no sympathy!?!

27. Roger Rabbit spews:

NRA mouthpiece Wayne LaPierre doesn’t like the media’s editorial judgment, either. He’s criticizing the media’s coverage of the vigilante killing of an innocent Florida teenager. He doesn’t see why that’s news when people are getting shot every day all over America.

Of course, the media covers those incidents, too — otherwise how could I post links to the Mass Shooting Of The Day (TM) here?

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/14/11200652-nra-official-accuses-media-of-sensationalizing-trayvon-martin-story?lite

Roger Rabbit Commentary: Personally, I think it’s news when a group like the NRA goes around trying to change laws so any bozo can carry a gun anywhere and shoot anyone on mere paranoia, because that affects all of us — in fact, I’d argue the NRA’s legislative policies pose a clear and present danger to my own life, and the lives of my fellow rabbits! Especially if George Zimmerman is their idea of a responsible gun owner.

So he took his own stock money to pay for THEIR education. Apparently most libs on this board don’t believe in themselves or the American dream, hence the disgusting displays of self-aggrandizement here!

When the higher food prices come, they’ll blame the higher food prices on too much taxes and regulation.

34. YLB spews:

Conservatives, in contrast, tend to be less open — less exploratory, less in need of change — and more “conscientious,” a trait that indicates they appreciate order and structure in their lives. This gels nicely with the standard definition of conservatism as resistance to change — in the famous words of William F. Buckley Jr., a desire to stand “athwart history, yelling ‘Stop!’ ”

One answer is that the governor is widely assumed to have national ambitions, and the Republican base hates government spending in general (unless it’s on weapons). And it hates public transportation in particular. Indeed, three other Republican governors — in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin — have also canceled public transportation projects supported by federal funds….

America used to be a country that thought big about the future. Major public projects, from the Erie Canal to the interstate highway system, used to be a well-understood component of our national greatness. Nowadays, however, the only big projects politicians are willing to undertake — with expense no object — seem to be wars. Funny how that works.

Oh, he’s dumber. Almost dumber than that yd nitwit. I would love to see just ONE cognizant “conservative” come in here or into any other forum I go to. I have yet to see any self-identified TeaBagger actually have an inkling of anything besides their own selfishness and willful disregard for factual information. They are probably the most uneducated people around.

There is no word in the English language that adequately describes their total lack of awareness of even basic realities. You hold the shit up to their faces, and they’ll scream “Communism” or something, not even seeing what has been so easily demonstrated and proven beyond any shadow of a doubt, except for the religionists who would love to see the entire country look like Mississippi or a Christian version of Saudi Arabia.

Are you referring to the Scott Walker crony who embezzled money intended for disabled veterans?

51. Puddybud spews:

@49,

No I was thinking about this one… Political operative Durkee, who allegedly embezzled $8 million from California politicians, likely to plead guilty

It’s the largest embezzlement case in U.S. election history. Federal prosecutors are expected to recommend that Durkee be sentenced to between 11 and 14 years in prison. In addition to the embezzlement, Durkee’s also expected to plead guilty to at least five counts of fraud.

52. Roger Rabbit spews:

@50 Toooooo fucking funneeeee … puddywatt* links us to a John Birch Society blog that’s bashing Greenspan and Bernanke, both of whom are Republicans who were appointed by Republicans …

* Refers to puddy’s one-watt brain cell

53. Roger Rabbit spews:

@50 (continued) Okay, puddywatt, I have a question. Who are you calling “moron” and what did the “HA morons” miss? Other than the fact we libs aren’t regular readers of Birch Society propaganda?

Btw, the guy who wrote that article is an economic illiterate, and so are you. Want to know how idiotic Congressman Ron Paul is? He, Congressman Paul, is blaming the Congress’ deficit spending on the Federal Reserve! Yes, that’s right, Congressman Paul believes it’s the Federal Reserve’s fault that a Republican Congress and a Republican President borrowed trillions to give tax breaks to billionaires and pay for a war they started against the wrong country!

Were you saying something about “morons”?

54. Roger Rabbit spews:

@51 8 million bucks may be the biggest embezzlement in U.S. election history, but it’s chickenfeed compared to the $9 billion of Iraqi cash that simply vanished on Bush’s watch.

It vanished about the same time Bush operatives were seen using grain shovels to fill duffelbags with cash from the backs of pickup trucks in Iraq.

@51 And let’s not overlook the $2 millon that WSRP and Dino Rossi wasted on a useless lawsuit that took away 4 votes from Rossi.

With morons like that running a political party, the said political party doesn’t even need embezzlers to go morally and financially bankrupt.

58. Puddybud spews:

Poor Poor Dumb Wabbit,

The words are from Bernanke… Another fact lost on your old self. You always attack the carrier instead of thinking about the message. Still the same old useless wabbit. Remember Bernanke works with the current administration. Seems Obummer liked him so much he kept him. Another argumentum ad nauseum fayle by the wabbit.

The election embezzlement scan forces Wabbit to change the subject. So typical.

At least Paul Ryan is attempting to create a budget. Obummer’s last attempt was rejected 414 – 0 and Scary Reid hasn’t produced a Senate budget in 1075+ days.

BTW how is Mrs Wabbit? She still using the iron frying pan against yo head?

Oh my! Who said this?

Romney is a pathological compulsive liar. Lie after lie papered over with more lies. Doesn’t even flinch when caught in bald faced lies, simply tells another big whopper to cover up or dodge the issue. Funny thing, the man actually seems to believe his own latest lies and simply ignores the glaring record of his past actions/lies.

Was it a Democrat?

NO! It is FreeRepublic founder, Jim Robinson.

Well? “spectacular 58-acre estate that was once priced at $40 million and is nestled in a wooded, wealthy Atlanta suburb.”

Well? “own two of Detroit’s sports teams, the Red Wings and Tigers.”

There he goes again… Lets see. All I need to do is provide some easy facts to refute this moron! He loves to use state data which includes all the DUMMOCRAPTIC cities. Yep DUMMOCRAPTIC cities. For instance… look at the 2008 Texas county presidential voting map. View the counties that voted OBUMMER. Then visit their crime rates. ASTRONOMICAL! Lib Moron did this before and I KABLAMMMMMO’d him outta here! Time to do it again!

So shall we look at crime rates in those states in the cities vs the countryside? Or use FBI statistics Or other rates. Or Google it!

So shall we look at birth rates in those states in the cities vs the countryside? Shocking CDC Data! So many PDF Files!

The highest divorce rates were found in Nevada are in Reno and Las Vegas. Data? I used the Lib Morons data! Who is their senator? Scary Reid. And in those cities, who did they vote for? OBUMMER! Or visit the Beast!

Lib is still a moron! Can you see lib moron’s head exploding? Crater Lake eh?

75. MikeBoyScout spews:

@73 puddles,
Might want to check your US Constitution. Nevada has 2 US Senators. One is a Democrat and one is a Republican. (For extra credit, can you name the party of the Nevada US Senator who resigned under the cloud of a sex related corruption scandal?)
Nevada also boasts a Republican Governor.

You know when the lib moron accuses someone being FOS, you know he’s cherry picked his data!

Hey Lib Moron,

When Jesus appears in the clouds of His Father’s Glory, what will your evolution theory prove then?

That you R a MORON!

80. MikeBoyScout spews:

@78 puddles,
You do understand that Rmoney does not believe in the Holy Trinity? Rmoney believes that Jesus is the eldest of God’s children and merely paved the way for God’s other children to return.

You should write Rmoney a long letter and straighten him out.

81. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

When Jesus appears in the clouds of His Father’s Glory…

There should be a corollary to Godwin’s Rule that states when a wingnut invokes the Second Coming of JAYZUS that we all get to point and laugh.

82. MikeBoyScout spews:

@78 puddles,
While you writing Rmoney about Jesus, you may want to understand why his ancestors proselytized “The story of the life of the Mexican divinity, Quetzalcoatl, closely resembles that of the Savior; so closely, indeed, that we can come to no other conclusion than that Quetzalcoatl and Christ are the same being. But the history of the former has been handed down to us through an impure Lamanitish source.

Well, unless you believe the flying serpent was Jesus appearing in the clouds of His Father’s Glory.

84. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

what will your evolution theory prove then?

Well, when He arrives, I’m sure He’ll be happy that some of us used our wonderful brains to discover cool stuff, like this:

Ash and charred bone, the earliest known evidence of controlled use of fire, reveal that human ancestors may have used fire a million years ago, a discovery that researchers say will shed light on this major turning point in human evolution.

Scientists analyzed material from Wonderwerk Cave in South Africa, a massive cavern located near the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Previous excavations there had uncovered an extensive record of human occupation.

I’ll bet that JAYZUS (J-Z?) will be down with the Theory of Evolution as the foundation for biology, or the cool cool stuff that the Hubble scope showed us about the Universe and its approximately 13-Billion year old age, and the BIG BANG, and Inflation and the LHC and the Higgs Boson.

See? Liberals like to learn things, and use critical thinking, and spend resources on education and research. Whether or not JAYZUS exists or not, or whether He’s coming again (Again? What’s his refractory period?) is immaterial and irrelevant.

86. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

puddybud is a liar.

(Apologies to Pudge)

There’s no way around that. I just went to the trouble of reading his links @73:

neighborhoodscout.com – unclear what their data is, how it’s analyzed, etc. He lists a page with dangerous cities. No clear point regarding…anything.

FBI.gov – reliable source, unclear point, again. The page linked is the Uniform Crime report, but it is not at all clear what he’s trying to argue. He has again just posted a link embedded in a bunch of blather.

answers.com – Really? answers.com is your authoritative reference? The link puddles provides is to a search for “what city has the highest abortion rate?”
New York is the answer, but what is the point? If anything this says that there needs to be more access to birth control (see rates of teen pregnancy above, particularly in the Bible Belt). It also implies that women in NYC have access to health care option. That’s a good thing, right?

google.com – puddles links to a raw google search of “highest abortion rate cities in us”
Again, point? Even if he were making a point, a page of google links does not make a supporting reference warranting a link, or the implication of backing that a link (should) imply.

The second to last link is to a search of the CDC site for “Mississippi cities teen birth rate 2009″ and is a page of links to CDC data. There are no specific data to which the reader is directed – it’s a sham. It has the form of a supported argument, without the substance.

The last link is to that statistical powerhouse, The Daily Beast, to a story titled “America’s 50 Divorce Capitals” Powerful, really powerful.
The first three cities, for what it’s worth (likely not much) are in Florida, Arizona and West Virginia.
OOOH Boy, he schooled me!

Like I said, puddles is a liar. He is not serious, he is not intelligent, he is not honest. He bangs the Bible and lies through his teeth (at least that is consistent). This site is far far better without him.

From 17:

@15 Maybe the newsworthy aspect of it is they were carousing when they were supposed to be guarding the President against whoever planted those four bombs?

No, they weren’t carousing at the expense of guarding the prez. There are some military guys also being investigated for naughtiness on the road. This is “news” because the talking heads at the TV news centers haven’t got much to talk about these days.

P.S., I wonder how many of those carousing Secret Service agents are Bush holdovers?

Unable to determine, but surely the Secret Service wouldn’t send a bunch of rookie agents to guard the prez in a foreign country. So, there are some Secret Service agents on this particular detail that worked for the SS when Bush was prez. I know they’re government employees, but they’re probably competant enough in this endeavor.

How does “getting a little on the side” affect world politics? This episode is about as newsworthy as how fast the grass is growing at the local park.

89. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

@85
I do that every once in a while, just to bolster my argument that he is full of shit.

The bigger problem with puddles isn’t the insane wingerism/YEC/Teahaddism, it’s the know-nothingism. He runs amok and poses as someone with something to say, but when you call him on it – he comes up empty every time.

The most galling thing, I find, though, is the dishonesty. He does this – posts all sorts of links that if you didn’t know better and trust him, look like he has some backing for his positions. But every time I’ve followed his posturing – it’s the same – EMPTY.

It’s dishonest – regardless of his political viewpoint – he’s a liar, and that supersedes all the rest.

90. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

Puddles, is dishonesty consistent with your Christianism?

So I went to my Democratic precinct caucus this afternoon.
Alas, there was pretty poor participation, but I had a lovely conversation with two of my neighbors – two wonderful women, both staunchly pro-choice former Catholics, mad as hell at Cardinal Dolan and the rest of the pedophile-enabling, Republican-mouthpiece Conference of Catholic Bishops.
There was also a clear-eyed rejection of the Ann Rmoney as martyr ploy. The consensus was, rightly I think, good for her – but every other mother in this country deserves the same options with regard to career or staying home – and her defense of Mitt is a defense of the shredding of the safety net and the general social compact in this nation.

No complacency about Mitt, these ladies were mad as hell there weren’t as many people there at 2008 (when, as PCO, I nearly had to adjudicate fist-fights between the Hillary and the Barack factions) – but given the lack of contest, and the nice weather, I don’t think it’s a big deal.

102. YLB sez you'll be investigating thieves, misers, bullies, the most detestable collection of people you will ever meet - the right wing trolls. spews:

Republican-mouthpiece Conference of Catholic Bishops.

I’m not sure I’d be quite so categorical. Last I looked they opposed recreational right-wing wars of choice and the death penalty.

103. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

@100
That’s the point.
Certainly formal Catholic teaching on poverty and the death penalty and war is completely congruent with my morals – what the ACCB emphasizes, however, is political fights with Obama specifically, and Democrats more generally.
They went after Kerry and tried to undermine him, as well.

Were they in the forefront of opposing the corrosive policies of Bush, which degraded the lives and dignity of millions? Cost hundreds of thousands of innocents their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere? Nary a peep.

No, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church is a pack of repressive and repressed old men who are perfectly willing to stoke the fires of fetus fetishism, and who have fairly clearly outed themselves as the Fox News of religiosity.

(As Bill Maher said, to paraphrase, “Why would we listen to a bunch of old virgin men who go to work in dresses on the topic of contraception?”)

Over abortion and contraception, yes.

And here’s their statement on the Iraq War..

http://old.usccb.org/bishops/iraq.shtml

Somewhat neutral in tone but hardly in favor.

Some of the Bishops I’m sure are total bastards maybe just about all of them but I don’t think that’s always been the case.

@110, 111 – It’s not necessary to guess, because this was in a news story. These people are expats who work and pay taxes abroad. The U.S. is one of the few countries that taxes the foreign wages of its citizens who work abroad. In most cases these aren’t wealthy people, they’re usually people holding dual citizenships who haven’t lived in the U.S. for years and are giving up their useless U.S. citizenship so they don’t have to pay taxes twice, to two countries, on one paycheck.
