    I'll watch the RNC in hope that Romney - whom I respect and trust - will inspire me.
    I'll watch the DNC for laughs, lies and BS....since that's about all their good for any more.

    Tuesday, 04 September 2012 We have not seen many good days and there are none for some time European shares fell on Tuesday as investors turned cautious in the run-up to a European Central Bank (ECB) meeting, with the Swiss market lagging after figures showed an unexpected contraction in the country's economy. The FTSEurofirst 300 index fell 0.3 percent to 1,088.20 points, while the euro zone's Euro STOXX 50 index was flat. Expectations the ECB will firm up a debt-buying scheme to fight the euro zone's debt crisis have driven an equity rally since late July. But the People's Bank of China appears to be resisting calls for more aggressive measures based on past experience: the huge stimulus enacted in response to the 2008 global crisis fuelled inflation and a wasteful spending boom. "We are all waiting for more monetary policy to come out," said Linus Yip, strategist at First Shanghai Securities in Hong Kong. "We are all waiting and hope the PBOC will do something."

    I watch Philip DeFranco and the team from sourcefed's coverage of the highlights and their table discussion. Philip DeFranco went from struggling financially to youtube news commentary star. When I went to his twitter page I saw a number of people who said his fun style and relevance cured their political apathy. No MSM BS here. If you want to watch than go to the election coverage you tube channel and click on the Philip DeFranco tab.

    Thought the RNC was okay.
    Now less see what the DNC has to offer for the next four years
    (and why they haven't done it in the last 3 1/2).

    I voted Neither (although I clicked on Republican) but will probably watch some of the Dems. Their Lies and Delusion would be hilarious if not for the Hell they are putting this country thru.

    I already know what topics will be talked about at the RNC:
    1. Obama is a socialist devil
    2. Poor people suck and shouldn't be allowed to vote
    3. Women suck and shouldn't be allowed to vote, get birth control, or demand equal pay
    4. People of color suck and shouldn't be allowed to vote
    5. Female poor people of color are the enemy of this great nation and we must do everything in our power to stop them from driving this country deeper into debt.

    That about sums it up for the RNC talking points. Yawn.

    The RNC was a huge success All the speakers did a marvelous job, On the other hand I think the DNC will be a failure because all the left Loons will be lying their tale off. America has hit Barack Bottom, Dump the Rump in 2012.

    Democrats are the ONLY ones who tell the truth and use FACTS to prove it. There's absolutely no point in listening to the gop. All they do is lie. Life is too darn short to waste time on pathological liars. Cleaning your toilet would be more constructive than listening to the gop.

    I thought the Republican Convention was well-produced. I liked many of the speeches by Artur Davis, Susana Martinez, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, etc. I plan on watching the Democratic Convention, too. Even though I am supporting Romney/Ryan, it's important to at least listen to what the president's pitch is for another four years.

    He said Obama's stimulus was the largest one-time expenditure ever by the fed, he said it was a case of political patronage, corporate welfare and cronyism at their worst, working men and women were cut out of the deal.
    In fact the stimulus actually created 2.5million jobs, cut taxes for 95% and was highly transparent and virtually fraud free. The dummies that my husband works with don't even know they got a tax cut, just like most people who are to busy hating Obama.
    The biggest one-time expenditure was actually WWII, if we ever pay for the middle east wars, that may top WWII.
    Ryan said Obamacare raises taxes on small businesses, when in fact it would give tax cuts to most.

    You are deliousional...my medical insurance has doubled in the last 3 years because of ObamaCare. You have NO CLUE what you are talking about.

    Then expalain to me why my Group Health Insuance that I have bought for nearly 15 years now as a FIXED RATE FOR 5 YEARS went from $271 a month when I turned 60 (flat rate until I turn 65) is now $447 per month? Tell me how that happened? According to my provider the increases are to cover the new required procedures and other things like womens health care riders that have been added to my police as mandated by ObamaCare....I now get to pay for other peoples coverage as well as my own....you are the one who is brainwashed because you can't see these things...

    Either you are pulling my chain or you are being ripped off, most of The Affordable Health Care Act has not even gone into effect. People are, however, fighting it tooth and nails even though it may benefit them. Wonder why that is? Care to speculate?
    By the way my health insurance has been going up ever year for the last 10 years. Also some one posted all Ryan's lies this morning, I think it was Mel, but really can't remember.

    I am not pulling your leg...5 year fixed rate started at $271...then ObamaCara passed and my forth year NEW rate is now $447...all because of ObamaCare...no one is ripping me off...you just don't understand what is going on.
  • Jane Stix 2012/09/04 19:00:20 (edited)

    Your insurance company is ripping you off and when the Affordable Care Act is in full affect that will come to an end. Yes I understand what is going on in my country, it is called obstructionism.
    Question, do you think that most people in Washington think right, left or in between? In this part of Texas it is closed minded right not thinkers.
  • Stix Jane 2012/09/04 20:22:47

    You are really not very smart. My insurance company includes a statement with each years increase and explains why my rate must be raised...it is ALL because of inclussions required by ObamaCare...you can't keep your policy anymore...you must have a government approved policy. My policy now includes coverages for women...even though I am a man and my original policy was written for a non smoking MALE when I bought it and renued it every 5 years...you have no clue what is going on in the real world...you just follow the party lie...

    At lot of the freebies ARE in effect now without a way to pay for it except to hit the small business owners. Insurance companies are passing on the increased costs and we've only just begun to implement Obamacare. We need to repeal and replace with a plan that fixes the problems and does not allow Government to take over.
  • nobiggov Jane 2012/09/05 05:30:24

    oh my goodness....the stimulus was a complete waste of tax payer money and Obamacare has caused my husband's health insurance for his employees to sky-rocket! There was not one single item in the plan to fix what we all agreed was the problem...the rising costs!!!!! We did not want a Government take over that will be MORE expensive. Please...read and watch from news sites other than what you currently do. Also, talk with small business owners and find out what's actually going on!

    CNN, Investor's Business Daily, The New York Post and others have since pointed out that Paul Ryan told the truth, that the so-called "fact checkers" were wrong. One such correction cited was the AP story from April of 2009 reporting that the Janesville, Wisconsin GM plant was officially closing and shutting down production permanently. Ryan never said Obama made an explicit promise, but that he suggested his policies would help the company stay in business for "100 years." (this should remind us of Solyndra and other similar incidents where the president made unwise investments or pronouncements about businesses.) So, no, Ryan is not the liar here.
