GUEST FROM AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY

Thom,

You are rarely rude when having a conservative as a guest but on Feb. 27th you were borderline pugnacious when interviewing the represenative from Americans for Prosperity and discussing the privatization of Social Security.

I am not in favor of said privatization but your guest did not have an opportunity to riposte to your objections. You are guilty of what you sometimes castigate your callers of doing, namely fiiibustering.

Regards,

Greg Kramer

Santorum

This guy is finished............after saying he wanted to throwup over Kennedy's remark about separation of Church and State my thought was that he is finished.....this guy is over the top - he makes remarks then back tracks after he gets some criticism - the Repubs are all bait and switch - what they say is not what you get when they get voted in...ie., Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan - beware of wolves in sheeps clothing..........

Buffett: Banks Victimized by Evicted Homeowners

I thought he wanted to join the 99%'ers. If so, why did he invest $11 billion in Wells Fargo and $5 billion in Bank of America? Enough of the B.S. He is playing Obama like a cheap violin.

Does it actually make sense these days to hope for progressive change?

As a longtime fan of liberal thought, it has become both a comfort and a codependency hoping for America to return to New Deal ethics. Hope only has value when it has at least a possibility of success, and the more I look at history, psychology and the world today, the less likely it seems.

Burned Korans

The books our soldiers burned had already been desicrated because prisoners wrote in them. That's why they were being destroyed. We employed the wrong method to destroy them.

Social Security

Thom,

If you want to raise the ceiling on Social Security "premiums" above the current limit, are you willing to have the government pay out an equally higher "benefit" to those higher payers when it comes time for them to retire?

Should the President lead by example?

President Obama wants the American People to have their vehicles run on bio-fuels and electricity

Why don’t he order all government own cars, suvs, motorcycles and trucks (The US Government owns the most) to run on them first!
