Re: “So sayeth the Hedge-funder

Pain: Do you really want the answer? (I'm thinking you don't.) Jobs aren't shipped. The US is losing jobs because 'class envy', empty headed liberals believe Obama when he starts the bullshit about "we must all pay our fair share". What a bunch of crap. The "tax the rich" rhetoric is hardly more than taxing corporations and companies that provide jobs. The US has the HIGHEST corporate tax rate in the world. Now, pain, if you were the CEO of a company that answered to stock holders expecting a return on their investment, would you stay in a place that takes the most of your money?
Your boy Obama has wracked up a debt of over 17 trillion dollars. Obama borrows $.56 of every dollar he spends. He borrows vast sums of that money from China. So, why don't you ask him why he is propping up a communist regime?

Really, siggie? Then how come we're supporting the economy of & shipping all those American jobs off to that bastion of socialism, CHINA, after spending decades (and billions of dollars) waging war against Communism?

Re: “So sayeth the Hedge-funder

Hey Hightower, when is the last time you washed someone's feet, you hypocrite?
It is axiomatic. If you give someone something, they won't even attempt to achieve it themselves. That is the core problem with your Marxist philosophy. It breeds laziness, worthlessness, lethargy, indifference and an entire population if useless sluggards with their hands out.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Laws to make you pay for a sonogram along with the abortion adds big $, especially if you don't have medical coverage. Now they are allowing employers to dictate what our medical coverage will cover and not cover over religious objections like with birth control. Give me a break! ( Are you also going to dictate what I can spend my paycheck on also? No MMJ or alcohol? ) And do you know how much a woman has to pay out each month for reproductive needs? How about $20 for supplies for having a period and $30 or so for birth control. Just another way to sock it to women who get paid less than most men.

Isn't that just another an oxymoronic situation causing women to become impregnated? What if you are a low income family with 3 or 4 kids already? It takes time to save up the money, and now they are trying to restrict it with finances and by taking away the clinics, causing many to have to find a doctor and get an appointment within the time constriction. It took me two months just to get an appointment with a new GP doctor.

Conspiracy theory here- It's just another way to try to control women and our health. I think any man that wants to get a prescription for Viragra should have to prove he can't get a woody, get his wife's permission (or why would he need it and who else is he having sex with?) and lets add an CAT scan to that bill as well. What would you men think of that?

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Moronic Intelligence: (How do you like that for an oxymoron?) since these are the same MEN who voted on Women’s health rights. Can they get any STUPIDER?!

Fringe Factor: Tampons But Not Guns Banned in Texas Legislature
Texas: State Capitol Bans Tampons But Allows Guns by The Daily Beast Jul 14, 2013

With Texas’s state senate once again debating controversial restrictions on abortion, security at the state capitol has been tightened to prevent disruptions from the gallery like those that occurred during state Sen. Wendy Davis’s 11-hour filibuster of the abortion bill on June 26. The Texas Department of Public Safety is searching the bags of anyone entering the gallery to watch debate and confiscating any tampons or maxipads found.

There is concern that these female hygiene products could be used as projectiles and thrown at state senators. However, visitors can still bring guns into the gallery if they have a concealed carry license.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

I thought up a few more oxymorons for you: Republican Right/ Religious Right- both are because they are not always correct! Protective Disenfranchisement- when the republicans vote for a bill that takes away your right to choose in personal situations for your own personal life or welfare. Religious Freedom- only freedom for those who take it away from the other religions/ or belief systems. How do you like chewing on thems nuts for a while, boys? LMAO!

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

In that case...let's outlaw murdering children altogether and let the murderous narcissists go to back alleys with coat hangers, because that is what there is right now without this new bill.

If people are sexually responsible there is no need to abortion.

And I ask again, why is a lesbian who will never conceive interested in abortion...not anymore better than men having an opinion on the subject really.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Protecting woman by denying them a choice and place for their own personal heath care is not protecting woman. Aren't Republicans for less government in our lives not more? I believe that is what they call an oxymoron situation approved by morons.

Guru and Stacey, the Texas bill protects women...why in a thoughtful world would you be offended by that...unless your agenda has caused brain dysphasia.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

I would think the heath care of any woman in any state is important to all women, even this lesbian. Just because I never have sex with a man doesn't mean I can't show compassion for another woman in a state that is trying everything it legally can to override Roe vs Wade. If you can't change the law from less than 20 weeks, they will change the law on regulation of clinic to close them down from doing abortions. Again, who cares about this poor woman and her own health and reproduction decisions that she should be making and her doctors recommendations, we'll force her to conform to our self-righteous beliefs instead of her own.

So much for standing up for our US Constitution and the rights of each person to make decisions for their own lives, the religious right and the GOP will be doing this for us.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Hmmmmm according to the conservative watchdog pollsters at The Huffington Post 59% of Americans agree with the late term abortion ban…
Turns out, Americans believe you can make a "choice" in less than 5 months.
So that leads us to wonder, is Hightower just confused about polls or is he a bald faced liar? Since I have seen it so many times from this man, I have to go with the latter.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

One wonders why you concern yourself with the state of Texas. And, if your made up "poll" is correct, you and your fellow busy-bodies have nothing to worry about.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

Stacy, although very well written and spot on, I'm afraid it is much too complex for Hightower (and liberals who think with their emotions) to comprehend.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

I look on in amazement as to how Hightower thinks this is just "greedy old meany corporations" or some such fap. Welcome to inflation there Jimmy boy. When an incompetent, stumbling man-child takes over and runs the defecit from 9 trillion to 16 trillion of debt, that debt must be serviced. And the way the Obama/Bernanke machine does this is by printing money. Then these two MENSA members decided they could also print for other things, 2-years of 2 year unemployment extenxions, Food Stamps, Obamaphones, money for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, Green energy boondoggles, failed electric car programs, purchasing Chevrolet and giving it to the UAW, purchasing Chrysler and giving it to Fiat, and the list goes on and on. You know what Jimmy boy? When there is more of something it is worth less and when there is less of something it is worth more. Obama/Bernanke nearly DOUBLED the money supply, reducing our dollars value by close to 40%. That is why when Obama took office a gallon of gas cost $1.85 and never will again. Thanks Democrats, you are really something else.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" right Hightower. I bet a socialist like you wants everything to be "free".
Obviously most folks are smarter than you and can figure it out. Here's a thought, if you don't like the product, don't by it.

Re: “Wolves in do-gooder clothing

Right Jim, if someone does anything political they shouldn't be a 501(c)(4) corporation. Let's look at who we are talking about, shall we. The NAACP, the Gil foundation, Organizing for America, Media Matters, Ruckus Society, Americans United for Change,
Women’s Action for New Directions, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Voto Latino, La Raza, MeCHa, and the list goes on and on. If you want to do awy with 501 groups that are politically based, well I am with you brother because there are a fuckload more "progressive" groups on that gravy train than the measley amount of Tea Party groups subjected to your messiahs inquisition. And by the way, I call trying to keep communists and other assorted dirtbags, such as yourself, out of power to be a VERY GOOD social welfare group. Because in America, social welfare aint socialism, unless you are one of the aforementioned dirtbag communists.
