Wow! Excellent, RealConcernefCitizen.

You get it, and also can state it simply and eloquently.

Why can't liberals post so reasonably?

I guess because they are liberals.

You have to add unions to those responsible for sending jobs overseas. They have priced themselves out of jobs. Steelworkers are a prime example. I know. I was one. I saw it happen from the inside. Autoworkers killed jobs, also.

MMRROSE - corporations move money offshore to gain huge profits because THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO - MAKE HUGE PROFITS. And nothing should be done about them making profits or moving offshore. That is just a symptom. The root cause needs addressed - why are they moving offshore??? DUH - because we have a country and government that are making it difficult to satisfy their shareholders (your pensions, your 401kfunds, your banks, your parents retirements will all shrink) - killing profits is attacking your own ability to save and invest and retire - what a asinine concept and objective.

Stan, You must have hit your head too many times. Corporations are designed to make money. When a country, government attacks a corporations, they take their business offshore. When a country or government is friendly to businesses, corporations move onshore. This country and government has been chasing businesses out of the US, and additional attacks will continue the out migration. Regarding the refinancing, the banking industry decides who is capable of repaying their mortgage based on their income and debts. we recently experienced a government that decided that "every citizen should own a home", and to do that they had to ignore all financial diligence to loan money to those who couldn't afford it, and caused a financial collapse. Let's not do that again, please. Wake up!

Ohioman: "The SCOTUS said money is free speach"

I didn't know that. Can you give is the case # and wording that says that?

Ohioman: "I agree the thugs that run the corporations like the Koch brothers deserve to go to jail same as any other american."

What crime are you claiming they should be jailed for?

I agree, Moteman. We should give Ohiodem the opportunity to support his claims.

Why? What other Americans need to go to jail. Maybe because they give to conservative candidates, and are more successful than you?

Pleas don't troll the forum give us your reasons or be deemed insignificant.

Although I personally refrain from making Hitler parallels, RPG's statements are sound. No rewriting history there. But if you feel there is, please tell us what was in error. Fair enough?

As for hiding money in tax havens, not true. No hiding at all. corporations are required to disclose their financial holdings, and you are are entitled to put your money in the same places they are allowed. The simple truth that you know where there money is disproves your claim of hiding.

As for your claim of bullying others. Asking someone to support their claims is not bullying. It is conversation. Now, making false claims is shameful. Do you disagree with that?

I have noticed the same thing Hagrid more disagrees than posts.

I guess mrrose aka core doesn't want anyone to disagree with the libtards on here. bknees is espousing communist ideas simple as that. We asked her about it and to show proof, but she ran for cover. Post a controversial statement then running is what is called trolling. She deserves no respect.

RPG nails it. just substitute other names such as Stalin or Mao and we have exactly what can happen to our country if people like bath house barry can have their way.

Want even more similarities?

"Sending corporations off to jail." Hmm, let's examine statements like that. Hitler took away the property and businesses of Jews and threw them in a concentration camp. He also had firearms confiscated from the Jews and developed a registration program. Chicago, Obama's home city has some of the highest instances of "gun violence" in the nation and the infallible Negus could care less about his supporters offing themselves in record form. Yet Obama wants to confiscate firearms from the law abiding folks that voted against him. Now, please explain how that is not similar to Hitler?

Mr.Rose, I have to ask you if you have ever picked up a book on the history of WWII? Ever watch the History channel? Hitler rose to power because of his radical ideas ,blaming a group of people (In his case wealthy jewish people) for all the ills of Germany. He managed to use his exceptional oratory skills to indoctrinate an entire generation. He developed programs to win over the minds of the youth, promising them everything in exchange for their loyalty. Now, how does that compare to Obama? He is blaming the ills of America on the "rich" and on white people. Using his mouth, he won the minds of the college kids by promising to pay for their education and healthcare if they just give him the vote. He promises food stamps and housing and obamaphones in return for votes and loyalty. The only things separating Obama from Hitler are skin color and the people he despises.

I am definitely willing to disagree hagrid. Every once in a while, the comments on this paper, deteriorate into talk more suited for the playground than for grown adults. bknees made one statement that the majority seem to disagree with and now America and Obama are being compared to Stalin, Mao and Hitler. What a disservice to history! That's a reach at best boys and mocks the wars, the devastation and deaths of what, 100 million people. Stan said that corps ship jobs oversees, hide their money in tax havens and that by doing that,have reaped huge profits. What's there to dispute there? Those are just facts. Now what you think ought to be done about it is your own prerogative. You can vote the way you want and say what you want. But when you start rewriting history, spouting off and bullying others, you bet I'm going to disagree.

Interesting that someone is willing to disagree, but not willing to say why. Or possibly just under informed.

BKnees if we are going to get manufacturing jobs back in this country tax deductions are not going to do it. obamacare is not going to do it. Taxing the oil companies to the tune of 80 billion a year is not going to bring them back.

Disbanding the National Labor Boardp and unions might be a good start in bringing back industrial jobs.

bKnees, you seem to be having trouble finding those deductions for sending jobs overseas you spoke of.

I was hoping you could maintain some credibility, but it seems you simply regurgitate liberal talking points, without bothering to fact check them.

Yes Roy it is real. Stan regularly writes these types of letters espousing his communist beliefs. Just like it was right out the mouth of Karl Marx.

Bknees always makes one or two of her bleeding heart pablum puking comments then disappears. She won't stay around and answer questions or provide proof of any kind to back up her statements. One question would this country have ever obtained the greatness if it hadn't been for the great industrialists. Yes they made millions but they also provided jobs for the millions who as each generation came along better themselves. When you get progressive commies like obungler in office the American Dream fades. Keep electing them and soon we will lose everything our Constitution and freedoms and be working on the collective farms. Just a few short years ago we saw what happens when a communist regime takes over a country. Remember Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Kim Junk Ill.

It is very unfortunate that some people think that way. People like that have names on here. Such names are Mr.Core, bKnees, maverick, Bushcrimefamily, and others. Other than that, Obama has a whole army of people like this, it is called the "Occupy Movement." You don't have to look too far back in history to see what a group of people like this can do. Look at Hitler and the Nazis! He had a whole generation of people just like that, he took over a country, killed off his opposition, sent the rest to be exterminated, and invaded other countries that he said were German lands.

Unfortunately, RoyDandee, this letter is real. There are actually people who believe this way, and scary as it may be, they vote.

They believe what others have worked for belongs to them, that they can dictate what others do with what they own. And if the owners do not comply with their wishes, they should be penalized, in this instance, they want them jailed.

When you question their liberal talking points, they run and hide. Some, when faced with the ignorance of their claims, and realize they have no idea what they are talking about, and can't possibly support their arguments, simply sink back into their mindless beliefs, and ignore the facts.

Yes, RoyDandee, sadly, it is real.

If you don't like what companies are paying their CEOs, don't buy their product. simple as that.

As for unions, they are doing themselves in. As proof, look at all the companies whose employees have voted down unions in the last decade. Folks have choices, and are choosing NOT to be union.

God Bless America.

mkhunt, I ask you the same question. What do you propose these CEOs be indicted for? What law did these individuals break?

The people at the top are raking off all the money like frontier CEO Maggie(pro-abortion)Sullivan Wilderotter's $8.6 million per yer. Toxic waste contamination, collaboration with countries like China, defrauding investors, trying to destroy unions as they harm workers..these are the people who need to be indicted and given a speedy trial and let justice be done..they are destroying companies and our economy. Easy to locate them too just make sure you take away their passports.

You make a very sound point Hagrid. The author of this letter does not understand that what he is hoping for is exactly how Russia, China, Cambodia, and other commie*****holes started. They start by arresting or forcing out those that produce. They take the stupid (low information voters, welfare slobs, the lazy, and hopeless worthless people) and turn them into revolutionaries by teaching them that the guy in the big house actually stole that from you. So they get an army of expendable idiots that do their bidding, in this case doing their bidding by voting and keeping people like Obumma in office.

Stan, what do you propose sending these corporations off to jail for? Doing what they wish with what is theirs? Those jobs belong to them, after all. Would you want to be sent to jail for doing what you wish with what is yours? Reeks of Communism, I'd say.

If you don't like what corporations are doing, it is very easy to register your own corporation. Feel free to pay your workers top wages, sick time, vacation time, full health benefits. Let us know how that works out for you, OK?
