Kingman Letter: Conceit in their DNA

Recently in this forum a regular contributor asserted that everything stated at the Republican National Convention was "all lies." Implication: Everything asserted by the Democrats is all truth. Given that myopic and naive perspective, I find it interesting that quasi-liberal USA Today included an article entitled: Fact Check: Opening night of the DNC. The article states that there were many "dubious and misleading claims" made by the speakers (imagine that!).

For example:

• "Romney will raise taxes on the middle class." - Untrue - The claim is based on a study, which doesn't support that conclusion.

• "4.5 million new jobs have been created under the current administration." - Untrue - fewer jobs have been created than lost during Obama's tenure. Note: Many of the jobs the Democrats claim as "green jobs" include such jobs as driving a trash collection truck.

• "Romney/Ryan will "gut" Pell Grants." - Untrue - Ryan's plan limits the growth of the dollar amount of the grants, and the maximum value of the grant would not decrease.

• "Romney left his state 47th out of 50 (57 states on Obomba's map) in job growth." - Untrue - Romney raised Massachusetts from 50th in job creation to 28th. Imagine what he can do for all "57" states as president.

• "The government bailed out a Romney company." - Untrue - Romney negotiated a routine settlement with bank regulators (common practice for all business people, regardless of political persuasions). No taxpayer funds were involved.

• "Democrats created Social Security." - Untrue liberal myth - Social Security was created by strong bipartisan support.

That smoke you see over Charlotte is all the pants on fire at the DNC ... you know, "Liar, liar." The DNC confirms that the liberal Democrats have deceit in their DNA, which has made it impossible for Obomba to act consistently with his campaign speeches about integrity and transparency. Well, he got the transparency part correct. We can see he really is bent on destroying America. Vote for Democrats, then bend over and kiss it goodbye.

“… ignores his fraudulent bc and ss, ignores his homosexuality i have revealed,…”

"interesting how the left ignores the dozens and dozens of lies and half truths obama puts out, ignores his fraudulent bc and ss, ignores his homosexuality i have revealed, ignores the lies about the libyan embassy, ignores all the horrible things he has done since coming in to office and all they ever come up with is bain and the cayman islands."

no matter how many times you try to pass off what you call "obama's lies" they continue to be proven to be not true. the b/c, not true, the ss number, not true, obama is not a homosexual and you know it. so, what are going to come up with next? seems like you come up with something new every week? you are surely getting desperate.

@ansons nephew

"now you say, “of course they do....”

apparently you are totally unable to recognize a sarcastic response line when it is obvious.

and once more. why are you incapable of admitting that any taxes your parasite pals pay is with money they have received from citizens who actually pay the taxes that provide parasites with their monthly handouts?

no matter how you cut it, people on welfare and ssd who are capable of working and do not even bother looking for a job serve no useful purpose at all.

Interesting how the left ignores the dozens and dozens of lies and half truths obama puts out, ignores his fraudulent BC and SS, ignores his homosexuality I have revealed, ignores the lies about the Libyan embassy, ignores ALL the horrible things he has done since coming in to office and all they ever come up with is Bain and the Cayman Islands.

Their Bain lies totally disproved by...TRUTH and the Cayman Islands totally ok with the IRS since the money has already been taxed once at the full amount. That is when it was EARNED the first time around.

I have just read the most recent Rasmussin polls. Overall, doesn't look good for o. And the upcoming breaking story on fraudulent giving, a FL voter fraud on the DEM side breaking....the lie of his homosexuality and infidelity I have written on and on and on it goes. And then, THERE"S HIS RECORD!!

Good grief! How ANYONE could vote for this fraud is beyond me. He is definitely going after the moron vote.

@Ansons Nephew

What part of the concept that your parasite peers pay sales tax, and everything else, with money GIVEN to them by taxpayers do you not get?

Parasites need to stop feeling that the handouts they live on are their due.

@ FLS

You said, “And remember, if they are on welfare or SSDI they are not even paying sales tax…”

I said, “I don’t know for sure about welfare but I do know that people receiving SSDI pay sales tax and I’m pretty confident welfare recipients do as well.”

Now you say, “Of course they do....”

Do the voices in your head give you headaches?

@Ansons Nephew

"People on SSDI pay sales tax."

Of course they do....with the parasite money they get every month. Are you trying to say they dig into a seperate pocket to pay sales tax when they are at the store.

You are confident welfare bums do as well? That's a good one. So if they do not work, where do they get the money to pay sales tax. I suppose here in this town full of uneducated hicks there are a few enterprising ones who supplement their welfare check with money from selling meth.

Sorry if I am insulting your peer group.

@Ansons Nephew

Who are they? ASnyone who does not work and lives on welfare when they can work. Anyone collecting SSDI through fraud.....lots of them around kingman.

Why do you keep pretending you have not heard this before? Denying there are lots of parasites does not make it a non-problem.

LOL

“Not nearly as "sleazy" as being In the large percentage of people in the U.S. who pay no taxes.”

Well here we go again. I will once again ask just exactly who are these, “people in the U.S. who pay no taxes?” where can we find them – living in a hole alongside the road in hopes someone tosses out the remains of a bag of fries or an almost empty Pepsi can? What do they wear – oh wait, they would be nude because buying clothes would call for paying taxes.

“And remember, if they are on welfare or SSDI they are not even paying sales tax, the rest of us who provide them their check are doing it.”

I don’t know for sure about welfare but I do know that people receiving SSDI pay sales tax and I’m pretty confident welfare recipients do as well. Where do you get this nonsense?

“So obeying the law when it comes to the tax code is ‘sleazy’"?

Yep, when you are running for president to use the tax code to hide your money off-shore (where it will not benefit your nation) to avoid paying taxes – or juggling your charitable donations so it appears as if you are paying your taxes – then, it is sleazy. If Willard the Money Hider is so straight forward why didn’t he take the full charitable donation he was “legally” allowed to? Sleazy and crooked as a dogs hind leg – that’s Willard the Money Hider.

"just sleazy"

So obeying the law when it comes to the tax code is "sleazy"?

Not nearly as "sleazy" as being In the large percentage of people in the U.S. who pay no taxes. And remember, if they are on welfare or SSDI they are not even paying sales tax, the rest of us who provide them their check are doing it. And here in Mohave County being a parasite is a lifelong way of life for a large number of residents.

LOL.

“Romney isn't hiding money off shore, it's documented right in his tax return for the IRS, and now the whole world, to see. Apparently,it isn't illegal since he's been disclosing it in his tax returns and the IRS hasn't charged him.”

No one has said it’s illegal – just sleazy that the guy who wants to lead this nation won’t invest in American businesses or American workers.

”I want someone for president who is financially savvy, and who respects individual property rights, …”

But does not respect the rights of American workers to have a job, who steals the pensions of American workers, sends American jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA and THEN hides his money off-shore in the Caymans, Ireland, Switzerland and Bermuda where it benefits America in no way.

And if he isn’t hiding something why won’t he show us his tax returns – twelve years of them, like his Daddy did. And where is his real birth certificate? And why does he ride around in a foreign made bus.? Too many questions about Willard the Money Hider abound with no answers.

so anson you are saying that if you vote for someone that you support every single one of their beliefs and actions? 100% right? you stating that anyone who votes republican supports hatred to women is so ignorant. thats like me saying that anyone who votes democrat is a racist because the democrats have a long history of racism. youre just trying to spread hatered yourself. its hypocritical and reveals your ultra left partisan and desperation.

Personally, I see nothing wrong with a person who is following the tax laws. I'd be more worried about the intelligence of a person who would purposely avoid using legal tax maneuvers just to put more of his or her money into the hands of the inept, inefficient and corrupt federal government.

I want someone for president who is financially savvy, and who respects individual property rights, (contrary to common liberal think, the money earned by individual citizens is actually their property and not the government's).

In no surprise to anyone Willard the Money Hider will to holding a fundraiser in – wait for it – COMMUNIST CHINA. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy arrived in Hong Kong on Thursday to make an appearance at the event. Communist China has been an excellent source of funds for Willard with both public and hidden funds rolling into Willard’s campaign, with Sheldon Adelson leading the parade with “whatever it takes” to oust our president by spending monies obtained from casinos operating in COMMUNIST CHINA.

Willard has accused China's government of trade, currency and intellectual property abuses, and says Obama has failed to confront Chinese officials, the last being an outright lie, but not surprising coming from Willard who has no relationship with the truth.

And of course Willard is known for his actions that bankrupted American companies, put American workers out of work, stealing the pensions of American workers while sending those American jobs to COMMUNIST CHINA while also having financial interest in various COMMUNIST CHINESE companies.

Willard has been sensitive to the China issue in his personal finances with the discovery of his ownership of stock in a COMMNIST CHINESE oil company that deals with Iran along with a video production company that steals the intellectual property of American companies. Willard lied in 2007 when he pledged to eliminate any investments that conflicted with his political beliefs (whatever those might be), but an investigation into his business dealings showed he kept the CHINESE COMMUNIST investments as late as 2011, and it is still unsure how many hidden investments he might still has.

Where are Willard’s tax returns? Where is Willard’s real birth certificate? Why is Willard riding around in a foreign made bus? Lots of unanswered questions remain about Willard.

Once again proving that anyone voting for a Republican supports hatred and ignorance against women Republican leaders have come out in support of Todd Akin in his Senate run in Missouri.

Remember Akin? He’s the idiot who said that in the case of a “legitimate rape” a woman’s bodies shuts down and secretes some sperm killing fluid that prevents her from becoming pregnant. All across the nation intelligent people immediately stood up and called “idiot!” even Republicans from Willard the Money Hider down the line condemned the fool and withdrew support for Akin. There were the really stupid that did maintain Akin was correct, but they were quickly given a biology book and shut up.
Now, in a typical Republican flip/flop the women haters are coming out to now support Akin.

The first one out of the gate was Lil Newtie Gingrich (who is STILL not the nominee) and then like the lemmings they are the women haters lined up – the NRSC decided to fun Akin again, goofy Rick Santorum flipped and joined in with his support, along with Senator Jim DeMint. How soon before Willard and Lil Ayn decide to back Akin. You know they’re going to, because they also hate women.

What they don’t realize is that Akin is a buffoon and the citizens of Missouri now know it and he will lose in November.

Remember, intelligent people will NEVER vote for a Republican.

To Linda Athens:

In 2010, Paul Ryan, speaking to the Chamber of Commerce, said that "places like Switzerland, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands were the go-to-places for the rich to "outsource" their mllions and "was a place to hide their money" to avoid paying American taxes, and if that money was kept here in America, the needed revenue could help turn America around."

So why do all you Romney supporters think that Romney "hiding" money in the Cayman Islands and other countries, is perfectly okay? As Ryan said, the taxes that Romney and other millionaires and billionaires don't pay would be beneficial to this country.

You can view the video at:
www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/13048161-ryan-calls-cayman-islands-where-running-mate-has-accounts-the-place-to-hide-money

And Romney saying that he has no say about his "blind trust," is a bunch of bull. Romney claims that he has no control over his blind trust, that it's not up to him where that money is placed or invested. Well, ROMNEY IS A LIAR! In 1994, when he was running for Senator against Ted Kennedy, Romney, himself, said that blind trusts were an "age-old ruse. You can always tell the blind trust what it can and cannot do,” Romney had said. “You can give a blind trust rules.”

You can view this video at:
www.mediaite.com/tv/christ-jansing-looks-back-at-romneys-1994-comments-about-blind-trusts-an-age-old-ruse/

Let's be honest, okay? Romney deliberately "hid" a huge chunk of his money in numerous off shore tax havens to avoid paying taxes on it. Ir is quite obvious that he loves his money more than he loves America. Otherwise, he and all the other tax dodgers would invest it here, and that tax revenue would help rebuild our infrastructure, and help pay for our firemen, police, and teachers, so thousands of them wouldn't have lost their jobs. How unAmerican of him!

“Let's put the Cayman's to rest.”

No, let’s not. Willard the Money Hider made his millions by bankrupting American companies, putting American workers out on the street, stealing the pensions of American workers and cutting off the health care of American workers while sending those American jobs to COMMNUNIST CHINA (while holding investments in Chinese Communist companies) and then he his money in the Caymans, Ireland, Switzerland and Bermuda – all discovered thanks to investigative reporters.

Willard is a sleaze, pure and simple, who hates America and American businesses and American workers.

So, no, we not “put the Cayman’s to rest.”

And where are those tax returns? Where is his real birth certificate? Why is he cruising around in a foreign made bus?

“The Lie: The 14% Romney paid was much higher than someone making $50,000. The lie was not corrected.”

Let’s see if can comprehend what you are saying – I paid 19% of my income in federal income taxes and that is not as much as the 14% paid by Willard the Money Hider. Please tell us that you not claiming that Willard’s paying millions in taxes is the issue because I did not pay millions in taxes? For clarification, let’s keep it simple and use $100 as the taxable amount. Your claim is that my $19 is not as much as Willard’s $14 – right? Why do you keep defending this sleaze?

“Everything I posted is provable and the BC and SS have NOT been debunked because the BC IS a fraud and the SS is from a state obama never lived in. Try again!”

No, it is not. It was wrong three years ago when you started this nonsense and it will be wrong next week when you post it again. Simply because you say something – over and over again – does not make it true.

Our poor birthers just seem to be failing in all they try to do in convincing the public on various issues surrounding not only their conspiracy theory on President Obama and their desperation to try and get votes for their great white hope Romney! Tax havens are not allowed by IRS, foreign bank accounts are allowed, tax shelter schemes are not legal in fact many speculate the reason Romney will never release them mysterious tax years is he was given a amnesty and paid a fine for a tax haven/shelter scheme! The penalty was 20% which ironically is the exact amount his accountants claim in a letter not a release of tax records he admits paying on average for them mysterious years! I guess this all sounds very Deja Vu to me, seems to me the same crowd was singing praises and predicting a win for the McCain and Palin ticket in 2008, and today we just have to wait till post election night to see!

Gee Linda I didn't tell any lies I simply did what your friends on Fox do everyday, when they say some people think, or some people say. They never state any facts just inunendo and half truths. That's what you people do on a daily basis. Let me tell you what is really true 5000 super rich americans were hiding money at UBS that's a fact . They were given amnesty if they paid the taxes . That's a fact. I didn't say that Mr Romeny was one of them. I think he was but I can't prove it. Why else would he not want to show us some of his tax returns from the Baine years. One of the big problems with our justice system as of late is when they catch one of these cheats they never go to jail. They let them pay off part of what they stole and never have to do any jail time. That doesn't seem to work for other crimes. Just the rich CEO's and tax cheats. Time for some real old fashioned justice. I think you better check with Peggy Noonan, Reagans old speech writer cause she said the campiagn is headed for disater, and boy is she right.

Half of this is framing - on both sides. If there's a fact that might have different ways to look at it then you should not be surprised when politicians take the favorable version.
