So, Mitt, explain to me how this works: I’m a liberal, female single mother who never planned to vote for you, so I guess that makes me one of the 47% of Americans you've decided not to worry about. Or does it? I'm not a freeloader: I pay over $600 a month just for my health insurance alone, without help from the government; I pay my mortgage on time every month, without government assistance; I buy food for myself and my children without the help of food stamps. I have yet to collect social security or rely on medicare. I'm not, nor have I ever been, on welfare. I was not raised on welfare..... So, since I'm not one of those freeloaders you speak of, perhaps there's an even greater percentage of us that never plan to vote for you?...
This candidate for the highest office in the land, this man who is hiding his tax returns and disparaging this nebulous "47 percent" of the American population, is forgetting that ALL of us rely on government every day, in one form or another, and that ALL of us pay taxes, in one form or another, every day….His wealth and his own sense of entitlement have skewed his thinking. He should retire to one of his five residences. The residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is not his for the taking -- or the buying.
As a teacher, I can tell you that while there are 180 days in the academic calendar I, along with my fellow colleagues, work far more than that. Weekends, after school, are spent grading and tailoring lessons to bolster student engagement...I calculated my hours spent working for one month with my "high" paid salary and saw that I made only $10.00/hr. I am sure that many Chicagoan teachers did not arrive at the decision to strike easily. I hope they are offered an acceptable resolution quickly. Going without pay is never an easy choice.
My big question is...what excuse does the government have for using inefficient and outdated technology in any area? Seems to me there is no good excuse! They should work for more efficiency and less redundancy!
heh. Lots of ridiculous comments off subject today. But Hanta virus kills, so this is not a laughing matter. I was working with the IHS in New Mexico when the Navajo outbreak occurred awhile back. Several young people died before the cause was identified.
A few major differences between the parties are easily illustrated by your article. It boils down to this: Republicans may, when it's deemed necessary, openly anticipate a day when one of their politicians may, in the future, consider making it known publicly that he may support a gay candidate. Democrats support good candidates, some of whom happen to be gay.
