re: How bad does it get after the election. - Clete Purcel
Agreed. And if what President Obama says is right and he's able to replace two retiring Supreme Court Justices (Ginsberg & Breyer?) before his term ends, we'll continue to feel the effects of his presidency long after he's out of office. ...

re: Robert Reich delivers lecture on greed while earning $240K for one class - Clete Purcel
No offense taken, Strophie. I was talking about Robert Reich's political leanings. I don't presume to know your political leanings. I've just not seen wealth redistribution championed by conservatives. I favor a smaller government. I don't think forcibly taking from someone and giving to anot...

re: Robert Reich delivers lecture on greed while earning $240K for one class - Clete Purcel
I agree with you. There is a lot of merit to his argument. I agree with a lot that he says. I guess this is my cynicism coming out, but people of his political stripe always have the answer - wealth redistribution. Government AND business have one primary thing in common - people run them. J...

re: Robert Reich delivers lecture on greed while earning $240K for one class - Clete Purcel
Of course everyone should be free to have an opinion, but his lectures on greed seem a little disingenuous coming from someone who is a 1 percenter, just as lectures admonishing us to reduce our carbon footprints by Al Gore are. It's hard to take either of those guys seriously. People watch what y...

re: Why is it assumed that the federal government is not greedy? - Clete Purcel
[quote]Have you ever heard Obama refer to the greedy federal government or any politician for that matter? It's always the greedy corporations; the greedy "rich". [/quote] Exactly. Politicians like to portray themselves as being altruistic and more generous than the 'fat cat' CEOs when time afte...

re: Robert Reich delivers lecture on greed while earning $240K for one class - Clete Purcel
It's always remarkable to me how people can be so hypocritical and not see it. Surely Reich is a smart guy. How does he rationalize this? I'm all for the free market and if $240k for teaching one class is the 'market rate,' great, but as the article stated: [quote]But a professor who earns a...

re: Rate this Dennis Miller Rant - Clete Purcel
That was entertaining, KeyserSoze. I'd rate it about a 9.5. It had an interesting point about the Sally Struthers thing. My daughter sponsors a child through Compassion International and she gets really nice letters from her child showing appreciation. I have found that those on welfare here in ...

I agree. It is a stretch to think that there are 39% approving. The statistic that always sticks in my mind is the following: [quote]But how many young grads are returning to live with their mom and dad (or their aunt or uncle)? The number to remember is 45 percent.[/quote] [link=(http://...

re: Rendell on Mary L. - Clete Purcel
It is interesting that 4 of the 5 issues he brings up revolve around the border crisis and tells us that the border is a huge concern for Dems and Repubs alike. It appears that the gameplan is to cast blame on Bush (surprise) and lie. Who really believes that "Obama is doing a great job of solving...
