Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go look at the plans to quadruple the size of my beach-front mansion in Southern California, before I leave for some Martha’s Vineyard fundraisers. Oh, and did you hear my joke about being unemployed?”

Ivan, much to Igor’s dsimay, had a goat, and Igor did not. This was not social justice in the classless society he believed in. He tried to protest to government officials but soon became mired in paperwork. In frustration, even though it was an illegal act, he prayed one dark night that God would correct this injustice. An angel appeared and told Igor that the injustice would be corrected the next day, at which Igor jumped up excitedly and exclaimed “Thanks God, I’m so glad you are going to kill Ivan’s goat.

We have been led to believe that because someone is rich somehow they can make you rich too.
That’s what I used to think about the Republican Party. Now I realize that you’re not invited to the Party and they only make each other rich and you are left hoping. There is a reason why people become rich. It’s an obsession.

I do not hold this against him, but it definitely does not help his case when he tries to say he is in touch with the ‘common’ person. As long as he pays all the fees and taxes that the law calls for, he can build as many houses as he wants.

If this his plan for jobs, then he better start buy a hole bunch of houses. Considering there are over 1 million homeless vets on the streets in the U.S. I find this a slap in the face of the hard working people and veterans that have sacrificed so much to make this a great country. All the while, they keep wanting to cut more from you to give it to thier friends. At least he’s got a home or three to go to when the election is over. If he is elected,and they pilage yours and my social security, medicare and all the other programs that have been hard fought to get, can my grandma come live with him? seems like he’s got plenty of room.

They could just alternate in various regions and on various topics and keep the people and the press guessing as to what they mean and what they are going to do. It wouldn’t matter what they said (or even what they did) because they could just “take it back” the next day anyway.

Last I checked, that creates jobs. I thought we needed jobs. Who are these insane people who would esteem jealousy of another persons house a worthier pursuit than the desire to pick up a hammer and get paid to build it.

That’s not allowed. And shame on him for wanting to lead this country. What is he trying to do… make us successful, too? We don’t want that! Vote Democrat!
