"Democrats are banking on tolerance, social awareness, compassion"

I don't know if you noticed but we are in about 5 wars right now and growing. Millions dead.

And you are SERIOUSLY trying to convince me that "Democrats" are banking on tolerance, social awareness and compassion? I'd say that what they are banking on is the absolute GUILT you feel for the terrible things done in your name and with your money.

The liberal game is to sell you on buying out your guilt. "Associate with us because we are going to help the earth and the people so you don't have to take personal responsibility".

If you want to save the earth than go for it. What's stopping you? You think the republicans have taken your personal ability to save the earth? So says the liberals. And the republicans blame the liberals for taking their personal power. Now no one takes any responsibility. Seems to me that if the president HIMSELF cannot lift a finger to stop a corporation from poisoning the earth day in day out then our government is USELESS. How about stopping a war rather than starting constitutional illegal wars?? Even that would be a start.

An honest government forces responsibility by getting out of the way. By handing everyone a MIRROR. But all we get are promises that some elected "official" is going to get everything done for us. Take away the pain, make everything OK. Unfortunately all they want to do is dominate and literally murder people. that is what war is and the US is numero uno in the world. I am not sorry to break that one to you. And what is the USA? YOU AND ME. And everyone in the world seems to know it.. only we can't seem to own up to it. If we did we would be all running in the streets screaming bloody murder!

I am a good person and most people i know are good people. And left to their own they wouldn't be running around murdering and raping people. And yet the people i am forced to vote for literally cannot WAIT to build bigger weapons and dump depleted uranium all over this precious planet. All while screaming "You're BAD!"

It would be funny if it wasn't so absolutely sick. So go ahead. Waste your life pretending that the Republican boogie man took your ability to be responsible away.

Anyone who comes running to the defense of EITHER Party, especially by trying to say the 'other' party is 'worse' is ####### pathetic.

Thats like saying you dont mind your neighbor sleeping with your wife, because your OTHER neighbor is kicking your dog.

Ronald Reagen was known for three things imo.

1)Deregulation of business
2)Leveraged buyouts

Side note: Both of the above led to monopoly capitalism, aka state capitalism

3)Star Wars program against a dying warsaw pact

He spend a fortune for nothing we leads me to believe "star wars" was really a precursor to some future lucas arts star wars theme.



They say reality can be stranger than fiction? Indeed!

Republicans clearly live in denial... After hearing about how lazy the unemployed are, or how lazy teachers are, mocking environmentalists, while spewing aggressive rhetoric toward gays, illegals, and muslims...

Yeah... both sides are the same... I'm sure that's exactly what a republican must tell himself so he can sleep at night...

We're all the same, we all hate illegals, we all hate muslims, we all ignore man's impact on the environment, we all think people without health insurance deserve to die. We're all the same... None of us really care... So Shhh... sleep well... the entire world is just as selfish as you.

You are right there.

Or maybe a way to funnel money, (people don't have and certainly would not willingly part with) to fund, corrupt regimes, secret black ops, Star Wars CERN, HAARP or any of an assortment of defense Boeing or Lockheed Martin projects, aircraft...or all of the aforementioned? We are not talking small change.

Sorry I thought everyone in the military signed up with social security and was entitled to the benefits.

Maybe I was wrong here...........


No more so then anyone else.

In fact, I think as a retired military member enters the age of SS, there is an offset between payments.

Kind of punishment if you ask me.


The reason social security exists is because a lot of people live for today and don't save a penny for their retirement. That means those people will eventually become a burden to society and government, so unfortunately everyone should be forced to pay now(while they work).

Its not a perfect system...but what government program is perfect? Not to mention people who "invest" with private pention plans stand to lose everything or a substantial portion of their invested savings with companies like AIG who speculate money into the sewage.

I have always paid lower taxes and done better while Reps were in charge.


Republicans tax everyone less and then spend at least twice as much on average than democrats.

Democrats tax more and spend less.

Its pretty simple. I may hate the bankers but "tax and spend" is a false accusation on the part of repubican strategy. The democrats are for fiscal responsibility and balancing the books. Clinton was a shinning example of this!

I agree with almost everything you say but the reason most of the wealth belongs to republicans is because they give lots of tax breaks and they look down upon minorities. In america if your white, rich and protestant...you got it made!

For everyone else there is the democratic party. Yes its become conservative because "donations" of any kind have become perfectly legal under the new supreme court ruling. There are virtually no limitations or restrictions anymore, which means the party that gets the most money gets to spend more time on mainstream media with their propaganda machine.

Who has heard of the virtually non-existant constitutional, libertarian, socialist, communist, green parties? In how many states are they registered? How much exposure do they get and how many votes? All together they collect less than 1 percent of the ignorant voters.

"I spit on you on the way to work!"
I disagree with host Cenk here..."Work?" Laughable.
This kind of explains why we "can't get a tax on millionaires when 84% of the country agrees..." but it is OK to raise PAYROLL TAXES on lowly workers instead? Kind of a sneaky and hypocritical tactic isn't it?

If you dare...

I think a little more than a few of you are ignorant of any truth outside AP fed diet of Lies. I get the impression some of you were given to many free rides in life and have nothing to contribute to any viable answers to societal problems. Your only contribution is to cause Anarchy and Chaos.

In short your a bunch spoiled brats who have to much time on your hands and not enough hard work hours.

Having said that.

It is democrats that are causing the hang up of 700 bills passed from the congressional House and is keeping the economy from having immediate growth and prosperity in America as of this Morning not the Republicans. And the Republicans are not ignorant of the effects of Human development on the planet, they just deny the ones that are not scientifically accurate as they are manufactured lies.

So give it a break on what party wont do what and who is against America. It is people like you who are against America.

All I have to say is that all the parties act like a bunch of snotty nosed noobs


There, I said it....they all suck! Anyone defending any of these jerks can take their "leaders" and their stupid indirect Electoral College and shove it!

There's only one party...the American Party and we should be the sole direct voters...wake the hell up everybody!

Now you are just making things up. Obama has a long way to go still to do the financial damage to the country Bush did and that can be reflected easily in real numbers. Seen any of them?


Really? the first thing Obama, and his administration did, when we all already knew we were in an economic crisis, was to spend millions of dollars more than ANY other president before for his inauguration. That should say something right there about his spending. Not to mention the fact that he has broken almost every promise he has ever made. He said the first thing he would do as president was to bring back our troops, and what happened?...

BTW, you should read up on what sort of laws your fuhrer has passed and what sort of future him, and his administration want for us all... From FORCED military training for everyone going to college from 18-25, to FORCED national service working for the government for free including children from secondary school, and some democrats were even trying to pass a law in which children from primary would also be part of the FORCED labor that the NEW CHANGE will be bringing to us.

This hasn't been implemented yet BUT THEY ARE LAWS ALREADY...

Your Obama is not the "saviour" he, and his fans claimed he would be.

BTW, did you also forget that during his "reign" they lost from $9 - $13 trillion dollars, and he even went on tv and claimed "we don't know what happened to the money"?...

Really?... You mean when because of him we "lost" military secrets to China more than at any time in the history of this nation and then for some "unknown reason" the Clintons were receiving money from none other than the Chinese?...

Look up Chinagate.

Watch this...

Cenk is a dumba$$... He is confusing "payroll tax-cuts" with payroll taxes... TWO DIFFERENT THINGS YOU MORON... (That was directed at the host of that video Cenk)


WASHINGTON — House Republicans will consider President Barack Obama's proposal to expand a payroll tax cut for businesses and employees, House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said Thursday.

"Republicans are not for allowing tax increases for anyone, we don't believe in that," Cantor told Reuters. "So I do think that the payroll tax provision that the president proposed tonight is something that will be a part of the discussions going forward."

Obviously you have no idea of what you are talking about... You are labeling all Republicans on what a few rich millionaires do...

Perhaps we should label you according to what rich Liberals, or rich Democrats do, and how they perceive the people?...

I guess you must be like Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg...

Shall we see what shehas said about poor people?...


In an interview to be published in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion was predicated on the Supreme Court majority's desire to diminish “populations that we dont want to have too many of.”

In the 90-minute interview in Ginsburg’s temporary chambers, Ginsburg gave the Times her perspective on Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama’s first high court nomination. She also discussed her views on abortion.

www.cnsnews.com...

In fact I found a statement directly made by this devil, because she cannot be a woman, where she states.


Q: Are you talking about the distances women have to travel because in parts of the country, abortion is essentially unavailable, because there are so few doctors and clinics that do the procedure? And also, the lack of Medicaid for abortions for poor women?

JUSTICE GINSBURG: Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae — in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. Which some people felt would risk coercing women into having abortions when they didn’t really want them. But when the court decided McRae, the case came out the other way. And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong.

newsbusters.org...

I mean c'mon, President Obama's science Czar is none other than Holdren..


Holdren believed a world government might play a moderate role in the future: setting and enforcing appopriate population levels, taxing and redistributing the world's wealth, controlling the world's resources, and operating a standing World Army.

www.frontpagemag.com...

They care soooooo much for the poor and middle classes...


Hope you "sleep better at night".... Perhaps you have found a kindred soul in Holdren, or in Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or any of the other rich Liberals/Progressives/Democrats/Socialists who think alike to Holdren, and Bader....

You have completely bumped your head. The Democrats tax more and spend more than the Republicans unless NeoCons are in control. Then, They probably end up even at the end of both of their raping terms.

Don't you understand who funded Obama's Campaign?

University of California $1,648,685

Goldman Sachs $1,013,091

Harvard University $864,654

Microsoft Corp $852,167

Google Inc $814,540

JPMorgan Chase & Co $808,799

Citigroup Inc $736,771

Time Warner $624,618

Top Obama Contributors

So don't assume that your hero Democrats are not corrupted just as the GOP has corruption. Read between the lies and don't fall for the robot slave mentality. The International Banksters rule both parties and they only put them both on stage to enrage the sheoples passions over domestic issues while they sit behind the scene and continue their sinister internationalist agenda. ~SheopleNation

Cenk yeah, everybody doesn't like him....he's our Limbaugh

Maybe he is a moron in other areas but - If you actually listen to the video you see he says

"LETTING THE PAYROLL TAX-CUTS EXPIRE.... is the equivalent of a payroll tax increase"


Which is the exact same argument the GOP uses when referencing the BUSH tax cuts
(that applied only for the wealthy)

if they are rolled back this amounts to a tax increase.

It only amounts to a tax increase on MILLIONAIRES
but it is deceptively packaged as
quote, unquote


RAISING TAXES
and a "tax increase" overall.
