The only question is: What's on the other side of the fence?

but for some reason it's not as funny.

Maybe it's the scariness of it all...

Finally a Man on Our Side!!
Newt Gingrich is the man to vote for, it appears, as he is probably the most in touch with the plight of the poor and middle class, at least according to Newt Gingrich, who claims "I'm not rich".

And it's a good thing; I was getting sick of all these wealthy-ass bastards running the place.

Re: It makes me want to puke when I read\listen to santorum's rants
Seriously, are there actually large numbers of people who not only don't want to go to college, but also don't want their children to have the opportunity?

They don't want other people's children to have the opportunity. They've been convinced that they'll be able to afford it; it's just those other leeches that want the free ride.

The Creationist Within
All you folks insisting that the Tea Party is a wholly racist movement are acting like creationists. You are so sure of yourself and your hatred of your opponent is so deep that you will say anythingconcoct anything; construe any evidenceto maintain your position.

It's no different than to hear 'Evolutionists are all atheists', and then to hear that position maintained even as numerous religious evolutionists step forward to refute it.

Re: Using liberal logic
What I have always found ironic is that Obama is taking Republican policies and feeding them back to the Republicans. Obamacare is the Republican health care reform policy from the 1990's, including the individual mandate and health insurance exchanges. The only reason that I can think of is that Republicans really, really hate Obama for some irrational reason.

Have you considered that the Republican party of today isn't the same as the Republican party of the 90s?

Oh, and they always invoke god for some reason. I havent figured this out yet.

It's to pass to the next guy, like on the news. It's just that it's easier to say "God" than to say "And now to Pastor James with more reasons why being bilked by the super rich is good for you...".

Easier. And a lot more deceptive.

Governments collect taxes.

Governments provide services.

Governments provide tax incentives to people who do certain things.

The ACA is nothing but the government collecting taxes and providing services, with tax incentives for people who do certain things.

What's the problem?

Re: should be crininal capitalists
Any employer who would cut workers time to avoid having to provide health insurance is simply a slime ball dipshit and I cannot imagine why anyone would work for such an asshole.

People who don't have a choice.

Wal-mart and Burger King seem to have no shortage of people signing up to work for them.

Re: statists ???????????????
It is human nature that people will not put out their best efforts when they know the vast majority of what they produce will be taken away from them.

Evidence?

Re: dark money
Make it a condition for any non-profit organization or company: if you don't pay taxes then you don't mess with politics. Neither funding of campaigns nor lobbying of congress allowed.

Why limit it to non-profits?
