Mr. R. Worthley says...

** "A civilian medal of honor should be established and presented to Gov. Paul LePage and DHHS Commissioner Mary Mayhew for withstanding the Democrats' vicious media war being waged against them."  
lol! 

** "They are using intelligence and common sense to prevent working people from paying more than 50 percent of their wages to a liberal, corrupt system that thinks the public should support every illegal immigrant and the ones abusing the welfare system."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
Not one person, not one, in the entire United States of America is paying more than 50% of their wages to any government, be it federal, state, or local.  It's just not true.  It's one of those myths perpetuated by LePage types that ignorant, rural Mainers swallow hook, line and sinker.  It's part of the "38%" mantra.  

To calculate your actual income tax rate, take your total income tax paid to all jurisdictions, divide it by your gross income from all sources, then multiply by 100.  That's your actual tax rate.  I'm sure Mr. Worthley would be shocked at how little income tax he actually pays in terms of a percent. I'll bet it's less than 10. If you include property, sales, and other miscellaneous taxes, it still doesn't come close to 50%.


"illegal immigrant"...the illegals that LePage and Mayhew are after, are technically not illegal.  They are undocumented.  They are people coming here seeking political asylum and entered the country legally and are awaiting their documentation.  They didn't cross the border under the cover of darkness as they do in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.  But of course, ignorant, rural Mainers don't care much for geography, and think the "illegals" settling in Lewiston, Portland, etc., are from Central America.  Call them "undocumented" if you want, but not illegal.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

** I do believe that the thousands of children coming across the boarder without help are part of a plot by the federal government to assist them so Democrats can get future votes.
 lol! 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Straight from the horse's ass...Fox News, Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Levin, etc.  I think Mr. Worthley has overdosed on cool aid. Time to turn the radio and TV off, or at least change the channel!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

** The public has been brainwashed for so long people can no longer think for themselves.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mr. Worthley, not one word you have written is of your own thinking.  All you have done is regurgitated what the right-wing wackos spew out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

** But let the other countries take care of their own.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would dare say Mr. Worthley couldn't name one country the "illegals" settling in Maine are from, and the issues from which they are fleeing.

I (Mr. Worthley) do believe that the thousands of children coming across the boarder without help are part of a plot by the federal government to assist them so Democrats can get future votes.

Ahh...Mr. Worthley, here's a real "plot".  But, I suppose you're OK with the Kochs' attempting to buy elections because you agree with their ideology.  Tea Party HYPOCRITES. You gotta lov'em! applause  party
 

Koch Brothers Reach out to Hispanics
SAN ANTONIO — Aug 11, 2014, 3:48 AM ET

Looking to make inroads with the rising number of Hispanic voters, conservative activists are offering English classes, health checkups and courses to help Spanish-speakers earn high school diplomas. Picking up part of the tab: Charles and David Koch.

The billionaire industrialists are working to patch a gaping hole in the GOP coalition that could spell a generation of irrelevance if Republicans cannot build some credibility with Hispanic voters, who typically shun the GOP. The fast-growing group could have tremendous sway in American politics for years to come. Party elders have acknowledged their struggles to win over Hispanic voters, who as recently as 2004 were roughly split in party preference.

Enter the Libre Initiative, an organization that has collected millions from the Kochs' political network. Libre, which is pronounced LEE'-bray and means "free," pushes a message of limited government and economic freedom between lessons on how to build family-run businesses and prayer breakfasts with Hispanic pastors.

Its organizers pitch conservative ideals while offering tutorials on U.S. immigration law, support for overhauling the broken immigration system that stops short of campaigning for the Senate's bipartisan bill and collecting donations for the unaccompanied children crossing the United States-Mexico border illegally.

In effect, it is a shadow GOP — one with a gentle emphasis on social services and assimilation over a central party often seen as hostile to immigrants and minorities.

It's merely the latest effort of the Koch-backed pitch to Hispanic voters and the effort to shape the future of the Republican Party and American politics. In June the United Negro College Fund, which provides scholarships to students attending historically black colleges, announced a $25 million donation from Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation.
