    No one on this website is surprised by duplicity coming from this House. Here are the three completely different stories.#1: We have to give $4.6 trillion over the next ten years to the Kochs and their friends. Job creation depends on it, actually,the fate of the free(read-rich)world depends on it.  #2:We are broke.So the fate of the free(read-rich) world NOW depends on us cutting the social safety nets for the poor, elderly, and disabled among us, otherwise,we will sink in debt,and die. There is no possible way of raising another dime, we are maxed out on revenue. #3:There is no need to pass HR2366...an online poker bill, that according to Harvard School of Economics, will(not maybe)bring into state and federal coffers,the amount of $3-$7 billion,the first year alone. The GOP House is stonewalling this,for reasons unknown to this author.(I've been wanting to use that phrase"unknown to this author" for a LONG time...hey, different fantasies for different folk, OK?) Now, this author isn't good with numbers,OK. at least,I must not be, because every time I punch in those three statements...I come up with a negative number that exceeds my calculators ability to display.So I must not be good with numbers. That's all I can figure. Because Ryan tells us(with a STRAIGHT face)that we can give away $4.6 trillion, cover that cost with closing loopholes which they fail to tell us of even ONE they will close.Then they cut social programs. Folks, last time I checked, there aren't $.6 trillion in ALL social programs combined. I guess that's the loopholes. Then, with the very next breath, they tell us that we are on strong enough economic footing to turn down $3-$7 billion a year. Actually, that figure is low. It actually rises to around $25 billion after the industry matures,somewhere around five years.    Can anyone help me with this math??  And let's not come up with any anti gaming arguments,all of you who live outside of Hawaii or Utah, already have legal gaming within your borders. Most of it is the parasitic lottery, which IS a scam. Online poker, on the other hand,is a game of luck and skill(as opposed to only luck with lotteries)played for the most part by people who know what they are doing.  We are either broke, or we aren't. Which one is it? Are you listening...Mr Ryan?

    It is my hope that this won't get me in trouble but there is a website out there http://downbythedocks.net  that is saying much the same things,only in a larger format, and some of you might like to read it. And that's good. And reading it, and forgetting it, or telling a few friends "My, what a nice article" will do NO good.We all face a difficult future.And we all need to be involved in saying what that future will look like.Because if we aren't involved in the saying of what that future looks like, it WILL be decided by people who not only don't have our best interests at heart...for the most part, they don't even think we are as human as they are.And that they have a right to every thing we possess.And they don't!And if this doesn't make you angry, you aren't capable of anger. (Full disclosure. I write articles for this site. This site has no adds, no selling, and no donations are ever asked.There isn't even a way to send anything to them. They ask that if you are moved to do something, you do it locally, and let your time be part of the doing.That isn't a bad way to fight evil. And evil will come upon us, unless WE stop it) Thank you for your time and efforts!

    Hey, I love your writing style. It makes things so much easier to understand when explained your way. I hope you will find some of the people on this forum will take an ACTIVE part in trying to achieve victory for the 99%. It is no longer a CHOICE, it must become a NECESSITY.

    It is difficult to keep track of all the different stories (lies) because many of them are just made up on the spot, and they know that the media won't know the difference or is too lazy to check facts. Many of these Republican politicians have mastered the art of lying...Mitch McConnell lies, Mitt Romney lies and lies every day, Sean Hannity lies, they all lie and they are seldom called on the carpet for it except perhaps by Rachel Maddow or Ed Schultz or Lawrence O'Donnell...or Media Matters.

    Their new "lie strategy" is to accuse President Obama of doing what they do to neutralize the rhetoric.  One example: Obama is called "out of touch" with the working folks.

    "Years of flying around on Air Force One, surrounded by an adoring staff of true believers telling you what a great job you are doing, well, that might be enough to make you a little out of touch," said Mitt Romney.

    But hey..."it's not a lie if you believe it."

    gymrat -- I couldn't make the downbythedock.net link work.

    Thank you so much! I appreceiate the compliments. What I'm really trying to do is instruct.  Voltaire said  "one sure way to create a fanatic, is to persuade before you instruct". And I believe,but can't prove it, that is exactly what Charles and David Koch did with their TEA party.And they knew what they were doing, and didn't care then or now who or how many it hurts. It's just wrong. That's the reason I put or website on here,all we want is for people to think.That's the bottom line.If we think,we can beat these people.If we don't,we can't. Thanks again for the compliment!

    I hate to say it about such "holy" people, but in the case of most right-wingers, LYING IS THEIR RELIGION.

    And lying is one thing specifically mentioned by Moses in the Ten Commandments. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." 

    That means you must not speak badly about your neighbor, and especially TELL NO FALSEHOODS, (about anybody).

    Very good point my darling. Let me leave all with a quote(if you read enough of the stuff we write,you'll discover we are fond of quotes) "Evil happens only when good people fail to act" and I'm so afraid that what awaits us...is evil. The belief that wealth matters more than humanity...that humanity must sacrifice their own diginity for the wealthy.And if we have our way, that is not going to happen.We will continue to try to educate and inform...and then we will attempt to inspire. I hope I'm not in trouble with this site for putting out our sites address without permission. We are trying hard. And it is our contention that to only read, does no good. That's why we do not accept adds of any type, why we refuse to accept donations of any type, and if our readers are moved to donate or volunteer...we insist they do it locally.We are in a fight for the very soul of this country. And as you pointed out,lying IS their religion. And we can't win that way.If we do,we win, and still lose this greatest of countries. We must win correctly, and that is simply by telling the truth,and continuing to tell it,until it finally sinks in...that the Kochs and their cronies, are only concerned about themselves.And that goes directly against the grain of what built us up.The belief,seldom stated,but always there, that we MUST help and care for those among us unable to do so for themselves.If we lose that,we lose all.

    We plan on calling them on the carpet,and continuing to call, until America wakes up and realizes we are being sold to the highest bidder,by the very people we elected to represent US,not the special intrests,wealthy and coroporate lobby.They all lie.But we are going to keep putting out the information,and keep begging our readers to ACT,not just read and get mad.And you must realize,that all actions start locally.And we are going to elect the whole House in six months.Six months,that's a lifetime when people are desperate to hide lies and affiliations that they cannot admit.Charles Koch, are you listening?David Koch,we are on to your sick little game.You will NOT buy our country with bought and paid for congress critters.NO!
