Cotton defends vote against farm bill April 23, 2014 at 9:23 p.m.

Thank you Cliff for clearing what I was trying to get across.
.

The republican way is to let the banks instead of the US Treasury dole out the tax payers' revenues for about 50 percent or more on the dollar. They'll take their cream right off the top. And call it Capitalism.
.

I can still see Cotton waving to the cameras and announcing congress was going on vacation. Leaving farmers high and dry.

NO!

Cotton was NOT taking a stand! Cotton was using poor people to act tough. You know those sorry poor people. It was a party political move. That's all.

Cotton defends vote against farm bill April 23, 2014 at 3:58 p.m.

Idiots! It is NOT about the POOR! To think that food stamps is about feeding the poor would be like thinking that Farm Bureau has something to do with farming. LOL
.
Who has the EBT food stamp services? Answer JP Morgan.
JP Morgan 7 year contract from 18 of 24 states totaled $560,492,596.02.
.
Top retailer: WALMART
18 percent of all food stamp dollars at Walmart, according to company estimates told to the Wall Street Journal and confirmed by The Huffington Post. That's about $14 billion of the $80 billion Congress set aside for food stamps last year. The company's total profits for 2013 were $17 billion.
.

Same thing with all the farm subsidies, crop insurance etc ....
The banks' high percentage handling fees.
All of this is what Republicans call Capitalism. (Your tax dollar money)
.

As for me..... I just want to help the poor!

Title of new Hillary Clinton book: 'Hard Choices' April 21, 2014 at 7:22 a.m.

T6: Can you read a map?

Bundy's cattle are in Bunkerville, Nv and the proposed ENN plant would have been sited in Laughlin, Nevada. 180 miles apart.

Why is Nevada 80% federal land? History:
.

The land never belonged to Nevada. Period.
In 1784, then-Virgina delegate Thomas Jefferson suggested the nation generate revenue and encourage westward expansion by selling cheap land.
This created the Land Ordinance of 1785, funding surveys, selling land and encouraging the settlement of township plats.
Following the Mexican-American War, the United States obtained the Great Basin, along with a large portion of the west stretching from Texas to the Pacific Ocean. In 1861, Nevada became its own territory on the stipulation in its enabling act that it "must disclaim all rights to unappropriated public land in Nevada."
Nevada's Constitution further reflects the enabling act: "That the people inhabiting said territory do agree and declare, that they forever disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within said territory, and that the same shall be and remain at the sole and entire disposition of the United States."
Land already appropriated, or earlier granted from Mexico before the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, remained in private ownership.

Correct above: Not July 2024
Should read:

In July 2013, a federal court finally ordered Bundy to get his cattle off public land within 45 days or risk having them confiscated by the government and sold to pay off the fee and trespassing fines (about $1.2 million) that he owes.

Notice how T6 flipped the subject to Harry Reid? LOL
.
Back in 1993, Bundy begin declining to pay the government fees required to allow his cattle to graze on public lands.
In 1998, as part of an effort to protect the endangered desert tortoise, the government obtained a court order to have the cattle removed from that land.
In July 2024, a federal court finally ordered Bundy to get his cattle off public land within 45 days or risk having them confiscated by the government and sold to pay off the fee and trespassing fines (about $1.2 million) that he owes.
But Bundy does not recognize federal authority.
Bundy only recognizes Nevada and Clark County but that didn't hold up in court.
.
Now the T6s of the world claim that it is not about grazing or endangered tortoises but about Harry Reid and a chinese company that want the land for a solar plant.
.

Problem: The site that ENN Mojave Energy was planning to buy in order to build a solar plant is nowhere near the Bundy. And ENN gave up the solar project back in June 2013.
Even the Breitbart website debunked this Harry Reed land grab conspiracy claim.

Mencken did not presciently foresee: Telecommunications and transportation such as satellites, television, internet, planes, trains and automobiles that voters would have to know who the candidates are. He was speaking in 1920 for crying out loud.

A democrat was not elected just once but twice and he is black. Get over it.

Packer: Do you still lay in the floor, kicking, screaming and holding your breathe?
Crying for an apology and begging mom to make everybody shut up.

Your mom should have done you a favor and ignored the tantrums.

Packerdude's first example of voter fraud was buying votes. Somehow he thinks that photo ID would have prevented somebody from buy votes but fails to explain how or how it was possible to convict this people under existing law.
.
Packerdude's second attempt was absentee voter fraud by an elected official from within (back in the 1940's).
.
We will all wait until packer grows up or hell freezes over to connect fraud with a photo ID solution.
