"...Mitt was so poor that they had to use two saw horses and a piece of plywood as a dining room table in their college dorm? lmao! They came from rich families and suffered no such hardship and everyone new it."

 

But the guy who you say "lied" about eating off plywood in college (wow, what an egregious lie!) wouldn't have left four of his countrymen to die in Benghazi. I think the families of the dead Americans might overlook the horror of "lying" (according to YOU) about a table in college if they could have their loved ones back rather than listen to the current and blatant lies and coverups about their deaths.

Other than that, I have no disdain for rich people. That's for the lazy and the ignorant and the envious. And they are now voting for their own prosperity and aggrandizement rather than working for it anyway. Which will be our downfall. The Goose that laid the Golden Egg is on life support and just about dead, covered in festering sores from the mountain of swarming, suffocating parasites now sucking the life out of it.

Good luck!

I agree!  They chose to live and experience a frugal student lifestyle and I find that dignified.  Now they are at fault for not living in a huge mansion while they were going to school???

    I wasn't making a political statement and you know it rdgrnr!  I thought the thread was about Brad Duke and his comments concerning his money, no?  I didn't know i couldn't quote "Ann Romney" in the context of said discussion without someone having a leap of logic into Benghazi.

    In regards to your second paragraph rdgrnr ill just have to agree with Cletus above when he said:  "You DO have a way with words keep them flowing!" 

    cheers

      Thanks CLETUS.

      I just couldn't let that go, complaining about a supposed lie in college when there's a constant litany of lies covering up the murder of Americans and that's not afforded a mention. I think murdered Americans are way more important than a plywood table if you wanna discuss lying by politicians and I think it's an insult to bring up any lying by any politician without getting to the bottom of this scandal that certain people want to just go away.

      I also know this debate belongs in the blogs so I'll refrain from going any further here and will be available in the blogs if anybody has a comment or concern.

      Roger that,rdgrnr!

        That is why I don't give a turd about what people think or say about me. I would get a vanity license plate that says "KSM ASS"

        yeah, most people might at first think it is a couples initials, but smart people will look again and mouth "kiss ma ass!

        but overall, I will still be a good guy...I will just be better at saying "no". KSM ASS

        When you do win the big one do us all a favor OldSchoolPa will ya?  Put a few Benghazi stickers next to your "KSM ASS" tag just long enough to scan a few pics of them on here for "rdgrnr".  The rest of us will get a few giggles with his reactionsBig Grin.

          Opinions are just that...opinions. It gives us a 360 degree view of things. Nothing to get happy or pi$$ed about. Can you imagine, what will happen if we all see things, through the same pinhole. This is a forum and different perspectives are definitely welcomed, regardless of whether we like it or not, life goes on. I must say that the ONION part, though unintentional, was pure genius.

          Thanks for that post. With the new spell check the options (and errant clicks) can be almost endless.

              Giggle on, veganlife, giggle on.

              It's just a "phony scandal" anyway right?

              Just 4 dead Americans, who cares, right?

              Screw their families, right?

              No, screw you, veganlife. Screw you.

                    I remember when he won his jackpot,he had plans to parlay his winnings into 1 billion dollars.I wonder if he's getting close to a billion yet.

                    Yep, CLETU$, that was what I was hoping to read too!  Big disappointment that it wasn't mentioned in this article. 

                    I think that in year 2008 there was an interview with Brad, where he indicated that there were some snags, so he decided to lower his financial team's "goal financial growth amount" [amount was undisclosed though]!

                    Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

                      There's always the possibility that he's just cheap.

                      Maybe he always was and always will be.

                      Cheapskates just have a hard time parting with money, no matter how much they have.

                      Good-Time-Charlie types, like me, can't stand being around cheapskates. 

                      Being smart with your money is one thing but being a penny-pinching, tightwad, skinflint cheapskate is quite another.

                      Yupp now thats 1 cheap <snip>. What gives u can't take the $$$ with you to the grave so spend & enjoy well you still alive ????   When ever I win a $1 0n a $1 scratcher woo hoo
