Doesn’t look like the Dept of Justice is going to go after Jon Corzine for the 1.6 million that evaporated in MF Global. Guess it’s just tough for the clients losing their money. Are you liberals out there okay with this? What about those “greedy Wall St guys” or is that just if they are Republicans? Democrats get a different standard, tee hee…what a joke.

I’m looking for Barack’s college transcripts, anyone happen to have a copy of them laying around they could share. Thanks!

You Dems are just pissed because you didn’t think of it first. I have seen you people in action in the assisted living and nursing homes tricking old people into voting straight democrat when they don’t know what they are doing. You should be so proud.

Wasn’t a republican administration the prime mover that got the US in this/these war(s)?
“Weapons of mass destruction” “treated as liberators” “money from oil should fund the war” and other assorted lies of the past that many republicans seem to not remember. There are a lot of people that came through Walter Reed hospital that remember though.

Members of both parties of Congress saw the same intel on the weapons of mass destruction that President Bush did. He didn’t invent that Intel. It was faked by an informer to get the USA to liberate his country.

Last time i checked, there was only ONE commander in chief.

Don’t worry, they’ll sink lower yet.

Using our troops for a vote? Why didn’t you do this before? Shows how low Romney supporters are!

MrEast you read my mind.

First off I am an independant.. Second these people are just trying to make things better. I fully support them in their project. BTW the heartless warmonger republicans donate to charities much more than the liberals ever do. Unless you read about it on some wacko liberal site. I think this is a great idea and it has been done for YEARS.. How much time or money have you donated without anything in return???
