Press this to nominate a vent for "Best of the Vent."
You may vote only once per Vent. Multiple votes will not be recorded.
Those who constantly play the race card are racist.
This Conservative doesn't have a "golden rump." I am out working hard every day just like a lot of people do. I complain because I'm struggling like so many others, and I see what the gov't is doing with my money. I could really use MY money to pay MY bills.
If Mitt Romney gets rid of tenure in education and introduces the world of higher learning to "the real world", where a lousy job performance gets you gone, he has my vote!
I tried to convince a young democrat today that she should start putting money in a 401k to invest in her personal future. She explained to me that she just can't afford it. Of course, she was distracted by texts coming in from her new iphone.
When those in the middle of the country are faced with flooding, tornadoes and storms, the rest of us foot the bill. It's called being the UNITED States of America.
Nothing the government does is free. Someone is paying for it. And that would be the very small majority of people in this country who actually pay tax and are not on some type of government assistance.
To anyone who thinks top down economics is not the answer - how many poor people have you ever worked for?
I do not ask why people are voting and who they are voting for. None of my business and my political preferences are none of yours.
There is no law that states people can't pay a higher tax rate. So based on what I have been hearing, much of Hollywood and rich democrats should be writing those checks any day now right? YEA RIGHT!
If you invest all you have in a home on the waterfront, then you should expect to lose it all, and I do not see how tax dollars should be spent there.
People think Obamacare is "free" because those people who do not buy it now due to the expense will be required to have it, but not pay for it. You will pay for it, thus it is "free" to them, and they can still call you greedy because you make enough money to buy insurance.
FYI! The solar panels would not break even after 30 years because their useful lifespan is only 20 years.
We have paid plenty to restore conditions for Joe and Jane taxpayer in the middle of the country when they suffer tornados and flooding.
Wouldn't it be the responsibility of the ATL Airport to provide adequate informational assistance to travelers with regards to transportation options? Another FAIL on the part of our great city leadership.
If you want more diversity amongst your convention attendees then maybe you should be more inclusive in your daily activities.
And your main worry is that Obama changed his view on gay marriage? I'm sorry for you!
I am voting for Charter Schools because they work, they work on much less money and they teach the kids what they need to know to succeed in life. Public schools are Unions, maintain bad teachers and its all about the money and benefits, not the students. Vote Yes for Charter Schools. Vote Yes for our kids.
Comparing bank amounts before taking office and again after leaving office will not tell you much. You do know that illegal funds go to their secret bank account in the Cayman Islands don't you?
The Buffet Rule was coined in 2011, pay attention.
Christ didn't disdain the poor, so why do you? He worked to help them, you work to ignore them.
Ron Paul still has the most fair, sensible plan for the U.S. What a shame he can't win!
If you've been listening, you'd know that Romney has no intention of "trickle-down." Just because Rachel Maddow tells you it is so, does not mean it is so.
The Buffett Rule didn't pass under the Democratic-controlled House and Senate in 2009 or 2010 because the Republicans had enough Senators to filibuster, preventing any such legislation. Check your facts before you complain.
So, you think 30 years is too long to recoup your solar energy investment? As energy efficiency goes up, so does the price of usage, so for the next 30 years, you know what your bill, (or payment) will be. As a plus, you no longer have to restrict your usage to lower your bill to reflect the raise in rates.
Why do Fox and other right wingers have problem with the auto bailout and not one with the Wall Street bailout? GM and Chrysler actually produce products and are responsible for millions of US jobs.
Obamacare gives out so many supplements for people to buy insurance that is is virtually free for many.
If your vote for Romney is because president Obama changed his stance on gay marriage, you're still screwed, because Romney never did---so you may need a new reason.
I'll tell you what makes me mad. Remember the Smith-Barney ad where they say they "earn it" when they make money? When you or I earn money we pay social security and medicare taxes on it. They don't. Under the "carried interest" rules they only pay a 15% federal tax. Just like Mr. Romney. Get it now?
AJC: Please put someone intelligent as Vent Master so he can pick the best --would you have these idiots vote on Luckovich's cartoons? Brooks' columns?
GOP vowed to make Obama a one-term president before he set foot in the office. That is why nothing got done, put the blame where it belongs and get the McConnell's and his ilk out of Congress.
...because every time we get a new president, we get new ideas--like Romney saying he has a new plan when he takes office...tee hee.
Just read a liberal editorial in the NY Times blasting Romney on all counts. Recommend they check out how the AJC is fair and balanced and for all readers. Robert Redmond Tucker, GA Tel: 770-938-9433
You're right; Obamacare is not free. But if we had left it totally to the Republicans, Congress would still only be talking about ANY change in healthcare & health insurance. Now we have something that can be improved upon.
Why vote if the electorals decide who the new president will be?
I'm writing in Whoopi Goldberg for President Tuesday. She is one of the most fair, leveled headed people in the public eye.
