Oh good a Ron Paul comment. How is Ron Paul a hypocrite? BECAUSE HE IS COLLECTING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY (benefiting if you will) BUT WANTS TO ERADICATE SOCIAL SECURITY FOR OTHERS. That's low. And then has the added audacity by saying your beliefs aren't strong if you don't practice them. Ron Paul. Great choice.
I think Obama might actually do some good if he gets a 2nd term. He won't have to worry about re-election or anything else, He'll most likely end up being like Clinton doing alot of humanitarian work around the world and in the USA, after he leaves office. All he needs is congress back and he'll be able to accomplish alot. He already did more good in his first 2 years than Bush did in all 8. Obama sees the future and all these idiot republicans in office only see themselves and money.
it's the lesser of two evils as always. i don't think romney has a chance, who in their right mind would want a president who keeps his finances secret? if america voted for that then this country is doomed anyway. and thinking obama will change ain't gonna happen either, all he seems to talk about is cutting corporate tax rates and austerity cuts in the budget. the 1% win either way.
It's not just Jewish people who run wall street. All of wall street protects it's own and it goes to the very top. I don't want to label it Jewish because that is ignorant. It's wall street bankers/rich people. In every single country there is rich families who invest in business/stock markets/politicians.
You're exactly right, our government is corrupted by all the money around it. I think Obama was naive to how bad our government and economic standing is. The reason he isn't getting re-elected is because he didn't tackle wall street. Now we're going to be stuck with Romney who will do nothing good for this country and make it worse. It's time for the people to rise up and protest. Shit will hit the fan once Romney takes over. If Obama is re-elected, then just maybe he will make some real change
I don't care about a Jewish/Zionist conspiracy theory. All you have to do is regulate the banking industry and enact the Second Bill of Rights. The rich people and families that have the most influence are able to do all this stuff because they are rich in the first place and able to invest and cheat the system in any way they can. The banking institutions and federal reserve need to be regulated and audited. It's all easy to do but our congress/president are all worried about bein re-elected
and that blame squarely lies on the obama administration, they just look the other way, america leads the world in incarceration rates, we execute minors and the mentally retarded, but we can't seem to prosecute a single ceo that's part of a trillion dollar heist of the american and world economy. including this pos criminal weill, it's gone beyond "sickening". it's orwellian in it's reality.
love the reference to the unholy union between the supersonics and okla. city. who doesn't love business moguls who rob from the public?
i fear for you guys, your wit and insight might be too clever or sophisticated for most people, citigroup has committed more fraud than blackwater, j p morgan, goldman sachs, the oligarchy of ratings agencies... oh you get the idea.
lol, "be in the obama administration, but act like you're in the nixon administration."
you guys rock, keep up the great work!
Don't let him escape the consequences of his actions. Weil's name should be plastered in the history books, school text books (factually) for what he has done. Society in general should shun him, shame him or at least give him appropriate treatment as a pariah at least by the 99% who suffered from his actions. Same for other bankers directly responsible. Victims should not accord respect to those responsible who stole from them. In a few years, hopefully the harm he's done will hang over him.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
