Re: “Republicans arrest fracking filmmaker

Yet I hear some Democrats are involved in this too and it is not mentioned at all. I know there are Democrats in the gas industry, and support it, and some who actually get some funding from them, but it seems this is a political slant instead of a gas process problematic article. I wish we had more even bias. All political parties are involved, and they are all like diapers and must be changed, and all for the same reason over a short time.

Re: “A minimum tax for millionaires

It's cold comfort to the children in Arkansas who go without food and health care that the Democrats and Actors in Hollywood with so much money considers them rich as kings when compared to children living on the street in India. This is more accurate, there are a LOT of rich Democrats out there, so let's make sure they are in this too. I mean, any of you that are, and there are a LOT, send in the extra you made to Washington. They know what to do with your money better than you do, and with all the spending the Democrats are spending, (new record), I'm sure they are spending it on all the folks who need it. I mean they have been in office now for years controlling that. And spending it too, even what they don't have.

Just yesterday I heard about a family living in the Ozarks without electricity or running water. I'm sure it would be news to them that they're wealthy. And I'm sure the Democrats will use some of their spending on them. And NO, I am not in the upper income brackets!

Re: “A minimum tax for millionaires

If the House or Senate stands in the way of closing the deficit, then we'll know all that hoo-hah by the Democrats, illegal alien and ACORN supporters over our nation's debt was only to damage the country in order to help Obama win again. This may be a reelection tactic, of course. But it will only work if Democrats keep pushing the issue of Democrats being the party for rich folks (THERE REALLY ARE A LOT OF THEM) of actors, and 'ironic' politicians. But as soon as Democrats begin kicking and screaming like the children they are, the adults in the room--Republicans which have not hurt this country nearly as bad, will give in as usual. And the spoiled bully will continue it's uncontested control of the playground and continue to tax us all, not just the rich, and spend us as a nation until there is a total financial collapse.

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress: At the time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% The Unemployment rate was 4.6% George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

Remember the day... January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over
the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate
Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in
what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!! THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS! (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy). And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac???? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie??? OBAMA and the Democratic Congress So when someone tries to blame Bush... REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"

The Democrats may have snowed alot of the American people, but not those who learn and can see. Why do the Democrats want to pay for illegal immigrants education and medical care, things we have trouble getting as legal tax paying citizens? Votes. They kill us, and the blind follow them. I was a Democrat, I saw what they were doing to this country, I changed parties. I am for Americans first. They should be too, the politicians work for us do they not? When the retirement and health plans are good enough for the people who work FOR US and the same as ours, then it's good enough for me, not until then.
