Pobucker We do not elect Presidents through the popular vote. but through the Electoral College. It is actually quite possible to win the election and lose the popular vote.

There is no such things as Negative money. There are negative bank accounts and that means You owe real money to someone else. But Negative money does not exist. You are not too swift I guess to fail to understand the idea between a Concept (a negative bank account which is a indication of debt) and an entity called Negative Money which does not exist. Real things exist or do not exist. That is the laws of physics,
A negative account balance means you owe real money to someone else. It does not represent an entity called negative money. It does not mean you own negative money. Surely you are not so dumb as to fail to understand???? That would be really dumb. And no one said there is an endless supply of money. Where did I suggest that? You just cant fix stupid as they say.

Po: 1) I never initiate attacks. 2) I am not intentionally mischaracterizing anything and 3) I am not anonymous. My name is on my account.
The 47% of "takers" identified by Romney et al include anyone who gets a government check and this means 1) University Professors 2) Doctors who work at the VA (all VA employees) 3) retired people receiving social security 4) Generals who work at the Pentagon. You really have drunk the Conservative Kool Aid of Lies. Amazing.
An ordinary, non-diseased mind (and one that does not belong to the billionaire class who never actually see ordinary people) is well aware that MOST people work. The vast majority of people work and work hard. If the Capitalist thinks he can live without workers he is mistaken.
You call my views misrepresntations, then you post absolute nonsense. Any non-diseased mind can see that most people work and work is very much a contribution. So your 47% number is Spin. BS Spin.

Don't ever respond to KDC. Watching her respond to your general remarks in an attempt to troll you is great fun. Don't take her troll bait.

I did not call Paul brain-damaged. I did not call you brain damaged either. I sent you a link proving that the claim that 47% of people do not pay tax is patently false. We cannot disagree about whether the earth is flat because it is not a matter of opinion. The earth is, as a simple matter of fact, not flat. The link I sent you shows that only 18% of people do not pay tax on their income and 10% of people are retired and do not make enough to pay tax. So half of those who do not pay tax worked hard all their lives and paid tax all their lives. It is simply a fact that this 47% number is false. Over 90% of people work and pay taxes. This is a fact. I did say that only a diseased mind could believe that half of Americans do not work an pay tax just as only a diseased mind could argue that the world is actually flat. This 47% number was and is a huge lie, not a "matter of opinion."

If Native Americans find the term "Red Man" offensive and they have said they do on innumerable occasions, what possible reason is there to persist in calling them Red Man? People have presented just this opposing view. If we do call people by names they find offensive we should not be surprised that they are offended. This is simple. It is so simple that one wonders how many times it has to be repeated for you to understand. In short: Be courteous. No one has made cheap shots and everyone understands what he is saying. Go on with your life. You are not changing anyone's mind. And there is no point in trying to discredit this simple idea by calling it a Cheap Shot. It is NOT a cheap shot. It is a reasonable statement. Again: Native Americans have said they find the term Red Man offensive, therefore there is little to no value in intentionally offending them by continuing to use the term. It is not Free Speech, it is rude. Just as any other name calling is rude. Simple. Do you understand it now?

If you look at the States that voted for Obama you see that most of them have higher per capita incomes and lower entitlements per capita. I have posted the maps before. Taker states-- those that receive more federal money than they pay in are much more likely to vote for Republicans. You can easily Google this and see it is true. So saying something does not make it true.

For those to lazy to look for the maps: I counted 11 Democratic Giver States, 4 Democratic Taker States, 3 GOP Giver States and 23 GOP Taker states. The rest are considered centrist states. FACT: States that take more federal money than they pay are overwhelmingly voting Republican.

Po: I was not referring to Jackson's Roots but his hatred of Native Americans. Your favorite editor called him "that Indian Killer". As usual your ignorance shines through. You are the stupidest person I have ever encountered.

Regarding the Confederate flag: Andrew Stevens, vice-president of the Confederacy stated best what the Confederate flag stands for and I quote him here: "Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth."

So now repeating the exact words of Alexander Stevens is an act of hate. Bizarre. People who want to keep symbols of racism alive and shove them in the faces of people who have been hurt by them are not haters but people who quote Stevens are? Right. By the way, that flag did not flu for 96 years. It was put back up in 1961.

Po: One would hope that we have become less bigoted and that the standards for fairness would raise. Historically people thought blacks were inferior even if they did not want to enslave them. Not wanting to enslave them is not the same as treating them as fully equal humans. So, yes, standards change as our understanding of the world has changed.. My question is : Are you against these changes? Do you think it is wrong to want or to ask TODAY that black people be seen or treated as equals to whites? Is that wrong? We are judged by the standard of the time we live in, not by standards of long ago.
If I gave Copernicus a physics or astronomy exam from a college course today he would almost surely fail. Does that mean he is dumb? No. It does mean that science has advanced since he was alive. Things have changed. So, would we condemn Copernicus? No. Would we condemn the forward movement of scientific knowledge? No. We would simply accept reality

SInce I never called anyone a racist for political gain you are clearly harassing me for the sake of harassing me. It is a very creepy thing to do. And when DDKA does call democrats racists for political purpose you support him. I get the whole New Plantation theme. It is a political game because these people do not care about poor folks. And there are poor white people. I an against giveaways. If you talked to me you would realize we agree on some things But seriously you are attacking me for sport and nothing else. STOP IT. RIGHT NOW.
