109. Dems Criticized Bush's Tax Cuts and War in Iraq Simultaneously
To win favor with the people, Democrats endlessly criticized Bush's Tax Cuts and War in Iraq, Simultaneously.

Obama is a fraud if he allows the Bush tax cuts to continue and then goes on to end Social Security and mess around with Medicare.

The wealthy OWN AMERICA and the rabble get the leftover scraps and these days, homeless shelters and soup kitchens.

I am so tired of having to rationalize corporate power and it's elleged "virtues."

Everything about the "free market" ideology are man made concepts just as any religion (take your pick) is.
