arma virumque cano (et alia)
Wonderful video. Thanks for posting it. Obama's gonna win by a land slide, that's my prediction.
Good points. This illustrates my principle that regulation should be in proportion to the act. Capital managers like that affect the whole of the society, while the effect of a single business that actually produces a product or an immediate service is much smaller.
That's hilarious!!! Reich complaining about people having to pay to bailout crap. Guys like him and Obama love taxes. The more taxes the better. And they love bailouts, especially 'too big too fail' bailouts. They love other peoples money, especially from taxes which is not voluntary. Yet, the other peoples money that Bain gets as investment is voluntarily invested. But don't pay your taxes and the iron fist of government will come and get you.And just think, companies want to increase profits and cut expenses. Maybe Obama could learn something from them instead of increasing debt and spending by trillions and trillions of worthless Federal Reserve Notes.Then these bad dudes sell shit and make a profit. Now who in their right mind would wanna sell a house and make a profit? Total nonsense. But of course when you sell your house you don't wann pay a measly 15% of that profit to the government, you love the government and all the good they do so you want to pay them 85% of your profit and you keep the 15%.Just more of Reich's total nonsense. Mikeb, I hope Obama wins too, then after he completely destroys the country we can start over and try again.SHeesh!!!!orlin sellers
orlin seller, living proof that only possessing a functional brain stem instead of the whole package is no bar to spouting nonsense in this or other fora.Tell me you've hated every government that's been in power since you were born, bub. We already know that you hate the military and the cops, you pretty much hate on gummint--but you lovez teh gunz. Somalia is the place for you, my friend, they always need a few good marks, er, I mean, men.
The right loves to shift burdens away from the rich onto the backs of everyone else; the 99% of us.The right LOVES, absolutely slavishly adoringly LOVES wealth redistribution, but only when it is redistributed from the overwhelming majority of us into the hands of the wealthy, whom they inaccurately label 'job creators' when they are not.If the wealthy who have an unprecedented amoount of wealth from the recorded data of the 20th century and the 21st century, they've NEVER EVER had as much money as the do now...........and yet they do not, will not, produce any jobs..........except those overseas.Only the seriously stupid would endorse the right wing politics on taxes or relating to the economy.
Dc,I am supposed to love the military, why? I am supposed to love cops, why?I am supposed to love government, why?orlin sellers
DG, I didn't know your liberal/socialist/Marxist blog was on a road tour. When are you going to explain how Democrats are any different than Republicans. A one-eyed potato can see there ain't a lick of difference between the two.orlin sellers

As long as somebody's for teh gunz they will be gettin' ol orlin's vote, regardless what else they have in mind.
DC, thanks for reminding me of this Mencken statement:"He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of dogs barking through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abyss of pish and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash." orlin sellers
He made it the old fashioned way...he fired people.

Not only does orlin not have an original thought vis a vis politics, he has to cut'n'paste HL Mencken instead of using his own words.Mr. Sadfaceville, population orlin sellers.
A person can do worse than to quote Mencken, as you illustrate.
Only the hypocrisy of a presidential candidate like Romney could overcome the racist hatred Obama has to contend with.Obama in a land slide. You heard it here first.
Mike - what constitutes a landslide in your opinion? I don't think either party will win by a landslide in this election as there are only a few states that are really up for grabs that will tilt the election one way or the other. Hell you could probably have Florida and Ohio vote on Monday and then only need the general election if those two states split.
I think I read once that landslide is defined as 10% or more.
DC said, "Not only does orlin not have an original thought vis a vis politics, he has to cut'n'paste HL Mencken instead of using his own words."As Mark Twain said, the last person to have an 'original' thought was Adam.But, if you disagree, please post all of your 'original' thoughts and we'll take a look to see how original they are. But, I would bet we aren't going to see anything that isn't talking points from the DNC.orlin sellers
Democommie regards foul language and snide remarks to be original thought.
