Re: What is the Republican Party?

Awww, normally I'd agree with you, but I thought that it was pretty relevant to his character because Allen West is part of the Republican War on Women.

Allen West wrote:“We need you to come in and lock shields to strengthen up the men that will go into the fight for you. To let these other women know, on the other side, these Planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women who have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness, to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.”


Now his own wife can't even negotiate what deviant sex acts he does to her body.

Doesn't exist.


By the way, you should post the ad where Allen West received his deployment orders and was preparing his troops for that deployment on the same night his opponent was arrested for disorderly conduct in a bar.

Why in the hell would anyone who agrees with Ron Paul here ever vote for Mitt Romney OR Barack Obama? I just don't get it:

She can leave. That's a valid part of any negotiation.

Almost 2,400 Millionaires Pocketed Unemployment Benefits

“Sending millionaires unemployment checks is a case study in out-of-control spending,” U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, said in an e-mail. “Providing welfare to the wealthy undermines the program for those who need it most while burdening future generations with senseless debt.”

Michele Bachmann (R) Makes Surprise Visit To Synagogue, Congregants Storm Out And Donate To Her Opponent

I felt that the best way to ‘honor’ Ms. Bachmann’s visit was to make a contribution to your campaign. Even though I do not vote in Minnesota, please do everything in your power to take away this evil woman’s soapbox.


The Graves campaign told the Chicago Tribune that it experienced a 400 percent growth in donations from the Chicago area last week, although it’s unclear to what extent the Synagogue attendees are responsible for this.

you just hate rich people. you realize that being rich usually means people greatly value your contributions to society, right?

I agree with you that it's dumb for millionaires to receive welfare and that expansion of welfare into that direction is stupid. Yet, "expansion of welfare" does not at all necessarily mean that it's expanding in that direction.

If it's EARNED, sure. If it's inherited...not so much.

So what should be the cut-off in salary for people to receive unemployment benefits?

How do unemployment benefits (and taxes) work?

I couldn't really answer that, to be honest. I'm simply not knowledgeable enough. But it seems to me that it would certainly be somewhere below "millionaire".

Is the designation "millionaire" determined with reference to salary (before the person is unemployed) or net worth?

The reason I'm asking these questions is that, thus far in this thread, unemployment compensation is being viewed as a form of welfare. And I suppose it is. But it's a little different, I think, than how I think it's being characterized in this thread.

Unemployment comepnsation is funded by companies who have employees through federal and state unemployment taxes. This is not something where you (Woodruff) are paying taxes that go to millionaires for unemployment. Companies that employ people are paying a percentage of what they pay people to the unemployment funds so that if and when those people are unemployed, the government can pay out of the unemployment fund. It is more like employer-paid social security than anything else.
