Re: “Mitt 'it's all good' Romney

scroat - what is a government "teet", you simpleton? ... and the "feeling" you are getting is your thumb up your ass.
You are so freaking wrong in every one of your guesses. When I get to Social security and medicare age (still a considerable distance in the future), I'm seriously considering donating it, although I've contributed several hundred thousand dollars to that effort. I don't need it because I actually worked in my life. (Unlike you, the low-life scum parasite.)
As to politics, have your big sister read the Libertarian platform to you and then you might know where I stand (assuming you can understand any of it).
Why don't you get a job and contribute to society instead of being a blood sucking leech?

Re: “Mitt 'it's all good' Romney

scroat - everyone is still waiting to hear what you have EVER given in your life. It is low-life scum like yourself that points your stinky finger (you know, the one you either have in your butt, your nose or your mouth) at people that actually do give back and insist they not give enough.
So here is a question slime-ball, why are you not supporting me?

Re: “Mitt 'it's all good' Romney

Jimmie: I was astonished that you were astonished by the astonishment (putz).
Dang, you are losing your communistic, loony-left angst. This pitiful excuse for an article was not even a limp-wristed tap.
By the way, don't you think something is wrong with a system that only taxes half of its citizens?

Re: “Robots in the workforce

... and the same can be said for any of the machines that have replaced human labor.
Do I need to explain it to you again C? Corporations have sent jobs overseas because of the tax happy Dems running them out of the country. The US has the HIGHEST corporate tax rate in the world. And the class-warfare nimrods keep screaming to tax the rich (corporations) more.
The world will go into recession because of the quasi-socialist programs and not because of a robot. The socialist dichotomy: Sounds good BUT, there are just so many productive people in the world. When the parasite outnumber the productive, the economic world, as we know it, will end.
So you and Jimmie keep spewing your communist and socialist propaganda.

Re: “Robots in the workforce

One of the many overlooked accomplishments of the union movement was the establishment of the forty hour work week as the standard for industrial workers. In the heyday of unionism, immediately following the end of World War II, the prevailing thought was that as productivity increased, instead of laying off workers, the work week would continue to be cut, with no cut in pay, so all could share in the prosperity. Now that corporations have become international and freely ship jobs overseas, no one remembers what was once considered to be a promise from American management to American workers, a promise that formed the basis of American Exceptionalism.

When American jobs go overseas, Americans buy less, but the corporations have been able to compensate by selling their products overseas, too -- to the people who got those jobs. With the advent of robots, though, there will be no one, foreign or domestic, to buy the products. Robots do not shave or buy shavers.

But you are correct, smartestman. There is no need to talk about all this. When the world goes into recession, because all the warehouses are full of shavers that cannot be sold, because there are no workers earning any money to spend, when houses stand empty because no one can afford a mortgage, while everyone lives in the streets, there will be a worldwide socialist revolution and it will solve all of our problems.

Re: “Robots in the workforce

Gee Jimmie, you could have written the very same article at the onset of the industrial revolution. Why don't we put people like you in charge. We could still be living in the dark ages.
I can't believe the Indy actually pays people like you and J. to write the crap you do. Are you freaking kidding me?

Re: “Ideology rules, Capitol leaks

Jimmie: Here is the solution: let's fix the roof and, while we are at it, let's cut 90% out of the Federal Budget.
I love how you always blame the "right-wing leaders". Do you really think anyone but me (your loyal follower) reads your narrow-minded bias?

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

K: talk about appealing to the base, I see you are now talking directly to scroat who is about as base as it gets.
The "war on women" is a political joke lead by the new champion of the left Sandra Fluke. How desperate the Dems must be. I am in the middle, re: social politics, and I can see the ruse. It is all a dodge because Obama and the Dems, that still support him (they are beginning to dwindle), are abysmal failures on the economy. Remember the economy? It is all I and most Americans care about right now and that will be evident at election time.
But you and scroat can keep playing your "war on women" games and you will be losers just like your boy Obama.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

Daytripper, smartestman is under the delusion that the phrase, "War on Women," is a catchy, but meaningless, slogan invented by a political operative and vetted by a focus group, and he is angry because it appears to be so effective. After all, that is how Republicans operate.

He does not believe women are under attack or that this slogan is a spontaneous expression of how a great majority of women feel about Republican legislation. He does believe that women make decisions based on feelgood slogans, not solid facts or intelligent analysis.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

smartestman, the Angles did not come from heaven. They came from Germany and invaded England. They were followed by the Saxons, another Germanic tribe, and their combined conquest is commemorated in the term coined to describe their descendants, "Anglo-Saxon."

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

scroat: see previous post, in which your new name was awarded.
Life must be nearly unbearable for the nasty little slime-balls that must look up from their spot in the gutter to see only ugliness which is all their small minds allow.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

so dumbassman, nothing to say about women except your support for the war on women... typical for a confused old repubican. bachman is as confused as the rest of your kind... probably even worse... but at least she can say the aliens stole her ablility to understand logic. she is a nutcase teabagger... just like you dumbassman.

Re: “Stuck in the Republican NutLand

Jimmie, you are such a putz. Do you actually believe the crap you put out? I bet you believe all loony left liberals are angles from heaven. Wait, there is no heaven. Ugh, may be the Dems can't say that. They might lose a vote.
Here's a good one:
"Michele Bachmann, for example, is a member of the House Intelligence Committee." Wow, a not so veiled insult and demeaning comment. You must hate all women. You must be declaring war on women. You can't honestly believe that you are better or smarter than Ms. Bachmann?
I am incredulous that even the Indy is stupid enough to pay you for the mindless trash you write.

Re: “We just need to remember Woody Guthrie

Somewhere along the way people have lost sight of what's being done to them or, to put it another way, they've misplaced their perspective on how it's being done. America is well on the path to being converted to a third world country where the privileged classes flourish and the rest of us - the most of us - provide the peasant class that is exploited to sustain them. That agenda has been moving along, sometimes slowly and sometimes more rapidly, since the mid-1970's. Arguing about communism is a red herring (the best puns are sometimes unintentional). Perhaps we'd do better to take heed of the fascists. Damn right we need Woody!

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

smartestman, I was not speaking for Mr. Hightower, who could not give you the communist point of view since he is no communist. I was speaking for Karl Marx. I note you have no rebuttal that is on point--just the usual tired old personal invective that passes for discourse among intolerant extremist ideologues. Don't be bitter. Better minds than yours have not been able to refute Marx.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

smartestman, you ask why it always takes at least two responses to clear the air after every one of your messages. The answer is clear. You have the uncanny ability to make so many errors in so few words it takes at least two responses, and often more, to address them all.

Re: “Ryan-Romney: flim-flam ticket

K: I love how you speak for Jimmy the communist and Tosches, as if you know them. I'll tell ya, you and your little sis sniff are a hoot.
Your responses (why does it always take you two to attempt to answer one?) are more oral diarrhea. Let me ask, were they of the hand-wringing, teeth-gnashing, heart-bleeding or pants-peeing variety? It is hard to keep track with you loony left liberals.
