And many accurately compare the present Republican party to Nazis, bigots, murderers and other lunatic human beings or non human beings

Thanks for the info! It's such a joy to read fact-based material here.

So, the influx of refugees (from storms as well as the Cartel Wars) comprises the demographic basis of those stats?

That's the problem with them? That makes some sense.


Well...you know that saying "Figures dont lie, but liars can figure".


I don't know if that is the basis or not. I can say that when I have a look around at the folks who are "broke" in the areas I know (West Texas, Austin/San Antonio metro, Hill Country, and The Valley)....its folks who either are mentally ill, don't speak english, or strung out on drugs.

In my town, even with the "boom" doing a downward thing, unemployment is still in the 5% range. Meanwhile, along the I35 corridor you have the fastest growing population in the world. I can imagine the jobs market is straining a bit under the load of the population boom. But itll work itself out. Austin is going nuts right now. I drove down by Seaholm the other day, and noticed 2 new high rises going up, and another 8 or so cranes out on the skyline. Driving anywhere in the historic district is almost impossible short of driving a smart car.

Another thought. What are the GOP's lords and masters, the very rich that they serve so well and so loyally? God to them I imagine.


I think to them the devil would be Jesus Christ who so eloquently tells us to feed the poor


…and they call themselves Christians!

Atlanta is very similar. We've recovered nicely.

My office is located about 50 miles west. They're probably a year or so behind in the "recovery."

I wish we could all focus on what was needed to recover and keep growing into the future.

Of course you would believe that. I don't.

You believe that a wrong actionin one hand justifies a wrong action in another? I'm sorry for you then.

Wrong actions should be wrong, in and of themselves.

just HAVE to respond to your "lazy = unsuccessful" post. there are literally 3 places to work in my city that pay more than 9 dollars an hour if all you have is a GED or high school diploma. EVERYTHING else is fast food, walmart, and gas stations unless you have a bachelor's or higher, even being a RECEPTIONIST. and i live in the 2nd largest city in my state. the next big city closest to us is over 2 hours away and honestly, there's no real decent jobs there either. sometimes geography will kill you if you only have a GED because there just aren't jobs. when my father started working for the railroad straight out of high school with no college he started in a job that now you have to have a master's degree to even get an interview at. it is nearly impossible to "work your way up" nowadays, in 2015, not 1957.

Which jobs that don't exist? Are you referring to the millions of low skill jobs that uneducated and/or illegal immigrants manage to thrive on in the USA? Or are you referring to the hundreds of thousands of STEM jobs (science, tech, engineering, math) which highly educated immigrants manage to thrive on in the USA?

There is plenty of work to be had in the USA, yes, people on welfare are lazy and undeserving(often), no the system isn't responsible for poor peoples problems.

By the way, tremendous response, quoting Thomas Payne and whatnot, your intelligence, literacy and knowledge is appreciated.

Man some posters do nothing but complain endlessly.

They victimize themselves endlessly. It's absolutely ridiculous.

What a sad, disgusting way to be.

What about wild animals who can no longer feed themselves due to the Republicans who have come in with bulldozers and backhoes and destroyed their homes and their food chains to build golf courses and Mc Mansions? I mean, they really would like to go back to hunting their own food and going about their lives. Kinda hard to do when there's no trees left to nest in, no rabbits or bugs to hunt, no dens or caves to mate and raise your young in.

If you destroy their lives and livelihood to the point where there is no means to feed themselves, you can't really bitch when they come foraging on your golf course and tearing their your trash.


LOL. I guess you've missed out in the McMansions and habitat destruction by Democratic enclaves such as in Maryland, Califirnia, NY. The rural areas with all that habitat for the critters tends to be in conservative areas in the evil flyover states with urban sprawl being more liberal.


No, I haven't missed it. I think you, however, have completely missed my point if you think I am making a direct statement regarding environmentalism. It's a metaphor, one much like the Republicans used comparing the poor to wild animals.

And I'm fully aware that Democrats invade wild areas and tear them down for some ridiculous enterprise that they will profit from.

However, I do not see the Democrats publicly comparing people in need to wild animals. In effect, dehumanizing people.

Controlling food. Terrorize parents and children. Do you people need any more proof that sociopaths have taken over the republican party?


If you think it's only the republicans, you may want to look a little deeper...the issues stem further than simple party lines.

Is anyone else's heart warmed by all the Christian charity on evidence in this thread?


Oh yes, A LOT of self professed "Christians" in here agreeing with the GOP stance, as well as A LOT of career military bad mouthing Government dependance. The irony is actually kind of sweet. Also, all of these people are the "personal responsibility" types who have never had to take personal responsibility for themselves, their shelter, medical, etc...

Just curious, Beezzer, what's your family background? Your parents and grandparents - were they middle-class, from the hood, wealthy?
a reply to: kaylaluv

I've read his posts ever since I joined, his background is irrelevant, his current position is interesting though. According to him he spent 30 some years in the military. So he went from the safety and comfort of his parents, never having to worry about food or shelter, to the military, never having to worry about food or shelter, never once talking about combat, so again, no worries there, to take advantage of a socialist atmosphere so he could use tax payer money to obtain degrees in which he could use to talk down about people who don't have anything.

The Dems are scumbags for sure, but that right there pretty much sims up the GOP to me

You seem to be doing a good job of that as well. I get a kick out of people who feel that there has to be a certain qualification in order to have a certain opinion.

But I'd love to hear more!

The difference being Beezer actually WORKED for his money, and benefits.

Unlike those on government programs like food stamps.

If they are going to be so witty they should be liberal democrats and host a comedy show, lol.

But I'm sure, this was seen as a huge accomplishment by them. Like, "Yeah! We so got this man!". Lol

Degrading, humiliating and so disrespectful.

I really hope than all normal decent people can find warmth food and happiness in this life.

And Marie Antoinette didn't say that, it's a myth.
