September 2012

One argument matters.

When I feel the beginning of a heated debate with a conservative firend on the horizon I find that the best strategy has been to yield a bit. The points are ones I expect: Fear of gun control.

Of course, we won't discuss what many of them are truly afraid of. Hell, some of their best friends are...Dems.

Romney's 60 min. interview with Scott Pelley

I have to note that Romney's answers have never been clear but the stress of his eyes is becoming apparent. Romney has no basis for my answers only rhetoric. If the American people would key in on my economic numbers 100 billion 100 billion 100 billion.

All dividends from major oil companies went untaxed last year for example General Electric paid an average of 2% tax over the last decade.
