    He sure does...

    That we need to ignore the "Rich Democrats" that prop up the current administration... George Soros, the Kennedy Estate, John Kerry, Al Gore and the entire environmental movement, virtually all of Hollywood, Wall Street (ever notice that all the "rich bankers and stock brokers almost always elect very liberal candidates?), Silicon Valley and almost all of the tech industry, every single contributing labor union, etc., etc., etc.

    The "Rich Republicans" meme has come to a close and virtually everyone knows it, except Rich Democrats, that is. But, that meme has worked SO well for them for so long that they continue to run the tape in hopes that it will still play for them for a while longer until they can be assured that there will never be another party in America again.

    If he does, we should all stand up and applaud.

    Usually, when someone has a first of anything, it is generally celebrated.

    I'm just thankful that years ago I learned to think for myself, and that I don't have to pay someone monthly dues for the privilege of telling me what and how I'm supposed to think, believe, say, and vote.

    What is rather ironic, is that a liberal media operative calls a State Governor, falsifies his own credentials, then uses that information to try to blast said State Governor out of the water... Doesn't seem to pass any number of moral tests, and at the end of the day, also didn't work. Said Governor stood true to his position.

    Immaterial that the person who made the call was a sham unless you think the governor lied to him. Do you think the gov was giving his honest opinions? If so, based on his own words, does he represent Republican ethics? Baptists morals?

    Bolded mine

    This is a fantastic summation of the liberal mindset!!

    Don't remember the situation, but several months ago some flash-in-the-pan occurred that I fully expected the libs to hop on like a robin on his first spring worm. A couple of days went by with nothing, nada, zip. Then suddenly all the resident libs were online parroting basically (almost verbatim) the same line.

    I guess when something happens too quickly, it takes the talking points editor of the Ds a while to get up to speed and get the "prescribed" retort out to the lemm --er-- faithful.:BangHead:

    Republicans being hypocrites is nothing new. Not only are they hypocrites, they favor the rich over the poor, something the bible warns against.

    Why would I favor the rich over the poor, when I am not rich?

    Check out this report - if you dare

    Conservatives are not against the poor - they simply do not want folks to be forced to give to the poor!!!
    and part of the reason is so that private organizations can actually account for the proper use of true charity.

    Your OP was about the Kock brothers. The articles stated that they have given millions to cancer research.

    So I am just giving more info.

    Salty

    ps -
    1- do you know how many millions they have given to charity
    2- do you know how many thousands of people they employ?

    I just wonder which party has controlled most of America's political offices since the Great Depression?

    And, now that the tide has turned, it is all-out war against "rich Republicans"?

    Yeah, right...

    By the way, who do labor unions fund for political campaigns? Some conflict of interest, perhaps?

    interesting data

    http://heraldnet.com/article/20110227/NEWS02/702279885

    "An April 2010 report by the Center for State & Local Government Excellence -- a nonpartisan, Washington-based group with Republicans and Democrats on its board of directors -- found that in 2008, state workers nationwide earned 11 percent less and local workers earned 12 percent less than private workers with comparable education levels.

    "The same study found that in Wisconsin between 2000 and 2008, total compensation for state and local workers was less than comparable private sector workers."

    Could it be that their jobs are not as demanding.

    Also, some of the pay may be lower, because they have better benefits.

    There could be dozens of reason for the pay differential.

    Be sure to look at all three sides of an issue.

    That is the reason the Army came out with the "Regular Military Compensation Calculator"
    Using my last duty station (Fort Hood), my basic pay would (currently) be 3,441 dollars a month but when you add in tax free housing and food, along with the tax advantage, I would be making the equivalent of $5,104 per month.

    The day a private joins the Army, his basic pay is $1467 per month, his RMC is $2733 per month- which averages out to $633 per week. Not bad for someone who may have been flipping burgers the week before.
