Non-millionaires are “losers?”

4 posts / 0 new

Speaker of the House John Boehner thinks people who aren’t worth hundreds of millions of dollars like Mitt Romney are “losers.” Appearing on CNN on Sunday – Boehner defended Romney’s enormous wealth – and argued that it will actually appeal to voters since, “the American people do not want to vote for a loser.”

Maybe we should ask Speaker Boehner what his definition of a “loser” is. Are school teachers who haven’t made millions laying off factory workers losers? What about community organizers who devoted their days to registering voters rather than mergers and acquisitions – are they losers, too? If so – that might explain a lot about what Republicans have been trying to do in the House of Representatives the last year – giving trillions in tax breaks to so-called “winners” – and ripping the social safety net out from under so-called “losers.”

People like "the tan man" think that they've hit a triple when they actually were born on 3rd base.

The "American Dreamsicle" is a turd.

The "Crying Vampire" is a liar.

I had an old "Surf Punks" record, and on the inner sleeve was written a bunch of "surfer terms". Kind of like a surfer dictionary. One of the words was, "A Baehner". That was a sideways boner!

I think it applies here.

How about someone who's been hanging out in bars since they were eight years old, and worked in the private sector only 10 years before becoming a career politician? Are they losers?

State-Owned Bank of North Dakota is a HUGE Success!

In 2014, the state Bank of North Dakota was more profitable than Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. And, that's why every state should own their own depository institution.

Most people attributed the Bank of North Dakota's success with the oil boom in the region, but their latest report shows that last year was their most profitable year ever, despite the fact that their state's oil boom has become an oil bust.
