They raise our taxes, taking more more out of our wallets in the name of improved quality of life.... Then they turn around and force businesses to raise wages so people can afford that *improved quality of life*..... ~ Mike Thayer
The liberal leadership around here thinks they can tax and inflate the community to prosperity. The real world doesn't work that way. ~ Mike Thayer
I don't want to hear it from liberals when they make their false claims about how the Republican party isn't diverse. Just look at all the Republican candidates running for President. Don't try to tell me that's not a snapshot of diversity, especially when you hold that picture up next to one taken of the Democrat candidates. ~ Mike Thayer

Is the behavior of the group Black Lives Matter becoming terrorist in nature? The group is clearly more bent on acts of rage, rather than establishing any kind of positive dialog.
On Saturday in Seattle, the Black Lives Matter group took over the stage of an event organized for Democrat Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders. Members bullied their way to the microphone and said things like, "If you do not listen to us, your event will be shut down," and "You'll never hear Bernie speak unless I hear it silent here now." The group issued threats, they shut Bernie Sanders down. He left the event without speaking.
In Ferguson, Missouri Sunday night, demonstrators blocked traffic and smashed storefront windows when gunfire between two groups of agitators rang out. A reported 40 shots were exchanged before one gunman ran across a parking lot and was confronted by four responding police officers. The suspect then opened fire on the police vehicle and was badly wounded when the police returned fire.
Protesters could be heard shouting, "We're ready for war."
"It's another great example of just how far, just how low our culture is that the wanton killing of babies and harvesting their body parts is a partisan issue. Really? Life and death is a partisan issue? The sanctity of life is a partisan issue? Really?" - Rush Limbaugh
Think about it, raising the minimum wage, the county now issuing ID's and if there's a policy in place prohibiting law enforcement officers from asking immigration status type questions of people they stop/detain.... Well, those elements makes the Iowa City area a magnet for illegal aliens. ~ Mike Thayer
One has to wonder if Johnson County's bid to hike the minimum wage in the Iowa City area was spurred by state Democrats? Can you say, "The domino effect?" Yes, yes you can. ~ Mike Thayer
"We are minding our own business, we get up, we see a record number of abortions taking place, and then we find out what Planned Parenthood is doing with their abortions and the aborted babies! If we get repulsed, and we talk about it, somehow we then get blamed for injecting 'social issues' in the campaign." - Rush Limbaugh
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship”
- Alexander Tytler 1787
"How did the rich get rich by stealing money from the poor? The poor never had anything! But that's what we're told happens with trickle-down and Reaganomics." - Rush Limbaugh
