University Asks: Are You Gay or Straight?

I think there's a guy in our office that lived and graduated from Iowa. He is truly a clueless individual. He goes around complaining like he's a conservative individual and even drinks instant coffee at work to save money. Yet, his thoughts and garbage he spews from his mouth is so Liberal, I could literally puke when I hear his "know it all" opinions on everything. They're sure graduating some smart ones in the state of Iowa.

The Charitable Deduction Should Stay

Yes, the charitable deduction should remain in place. Where else can someone like Vice President Biden, who makes about $379,000 a year with his and his wife's income get some tax write-offs? After all, he only donated $995.00 to charity in 2007. Such a generous give he is.

["Humans ARE flawed and should be free to succeed or fail on their own."] Well said. In the end it is all about freedom. Yet, so many Americans can't open their eyes to see the shovels full of dirt being dumped on them. But hey Obama is cool, so that's all that matters to them. Time for the day-dream to end. Wake up. Face reality. Soon enough, many will realize that we are not heading in a direction that will make us successful as Americans. But, I don't want to be the only one to tell them "I told you so."

["the extermination of whole political classes, puts you in league with the worst of the Communists and the Nazis.'] The basics of Conservatism have not changed. For it was the other party who changed the playing field to appeal to a larger portion of the population. In the end, a Conservative can be proud for standing up for their beliefs and not having to cave in to be liked by more voters. Yet, you are so quickly to compare the modern-day Conservative to a Communist? Perhaps, you should spend a bit more time understanding how our current president is carrying forward with his own agenda. Pay close attention to who's best interest he has in mind. It clearly isn't yours. Trust me.

["I enjoy popular culture. People like you see "filth" and "trash" everywhere."] In spite of "popular culture" Americans have also dumbed-down themselves quite a bit when compared to Americans of the past. Sure, lots of us like to have fun in our lives, but we also realize that there is a need to roll up our sleeves and work hard first. Then, when the day is over, we like to be proud of our accomplishments and have some fun at that point.

["Couldn't the eight year George W. Bush 'Reign of Error' have left this country in such a state that economic conditions will be poor for quite some time? "] I don't think so. In 2008, President Obama apparently had some good consultants that were able to pull together a plan for him to follow for turning around America. The result? Well, the end of 2012 will reflect a much worse America than in 2008, of which Obama inherited. With that said, it's time to stop blaming Bush. Bush is no longer our president.

Arby, You are 100% correct. I would have loved to see Mitt Romney really take off the gloves during his whole campaign -- just like he did in the first debate. Had he been able to do so, I would have hoped that it would have greatly paid him back. However, if America wants to be hand-fed via the Government, then it kind of takes away my personal pride of being an American when others want to bring us down.

["another one who buys the myth of the latino voter. please check the voters and how it went."] I've reviewed the numbers. The Hispanic vote in 2008 favored the Republican party. Yet, in 2012, they changed sides to the Democratic party because President Obama pandered really hard to get their attention. However, with that said, I believe that the Hispanic population is one that is really a hard working population. I don't think that they'll be happy living off of government assistance for too long of a period of time. If the opportunity was out there, they would choose to get connected with a labor market, where there would be no end to their potential, or the amount of money that they could make. Real jobs = Real votes.

["Democrats won, and they won big!"] Actually, the election of 2012 was not "big." However, the election of 2010 was what one would consider a big win. Additionally, once many Americans have had a taste of bitter and increasing tax bills, the light will come on. 2014 will not look good for those who are in Congress -- especially if they have a (D) after their name.

Really? I don't know of any Conservatives who are sitting home on their couches watching re-runs of Jerry Springer every day and collecting government benefits because they are capable of working, but just lazy. Actually, all the conservative people that I know are hard-working, job creating, tax paying, American citizens.

Sadly, you are quite blind. Putting the GOP aside, take a brief look at what is going on in America at this moment. The election is over and we understand that. Now, the reality is setting in. A family can see their tax bill increase by $6,500 per year, yet see Obama as "cool" because he appears on The View? Such mis-aligned priorities many people have when they get taken aback by popularity versus the sensible, long-range, and planned future that America could have had.
