The 'Real Voter Fraud' Comes From 'People Who Try To Deny Our Rights'. +Barack Obama 
During the 2012 presidential election, voters reportedly waited on line for upwards of six hours. In Miami-Dade County, they'll also have to wait to use the bathroom.

$180K and all the extra you can pilfer, spoken like a true greedy Republic... wait, what the heck??
Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) turned heads last week when he said members of Congress were underpaid. But he put his, ahem, money where his mouth was this week by introducing legislation that would have offered a small stipend to help some members (with some limits) pay for their housing while they're in session. In announcing the bill, he suggested that if something didn't change, then only the wealthy would be able to run for Congress. In an intervie...

He actually makes some good points. But if the price of DC housing is the main justification of his argument, perhaps all Congressmen should be housed in a dormitory while they're in DC.

The worst socialist EVER! 
+Robert Reich :  A few days ago I debated Larry Kudlow and Steven Moore, both of whom said President +Barack Obama has been bad for American business. The truth is the opposite. He’s one of the best presidents American business has ever had. Consider: (1) During his five years in office, after-tax corporate profits have averaged 9.2 percent of the economy, the highest since the 1920s. (2) Since he’s been president, the average annual growth in profits has been the highest in a century. (3) Under him, the stock market has surged 133 percent, a near record. So why does doesn’t corporate America love Obama? Which raises an more basic issue. Out of the 13 presidents since 1929, only two others have presided over a larger total increase in stock market values than has Obama – Franklin D. Roosevelt and Bill Clinton. So why doesn’t corporate America love Democratic presidents?

Fewer Americans today are able to put money away for the next crisis than they were before the crash.
You've heard of income inequality. Now meet wealth inequality.

We have to become educated, learn about issues when we hear a negative ad we have to ask who paid for this ad and why are they airing it

Visit Erie a couple times a year and have stayed at this Springhill Suites twice. Very nice spacious room, the whirlpool tub is definitely a plus. Comfortable (King) bed with plenty of pillows and covers. Good breakfast but would like to see more non-animal options. We used the exercise room each morning and despite the weight machine being broken still managed a good workout with the treadmill and cycle machine; free weights are available too. Good stay both times and would reserve here again. One other thing to mention is we tried to reserve here two other times but the were booked, so plan your trip in advance.
