    Experts estimate the personnel net worth of the Kerry-Edwards ticket is close to $1-billion....the richest in American history even after factoring inflation into the mix......

    More liberal elitists who consider themselves the "common man"...priceless!

    Edwards has amassed a 70 million fortune sueing people....

    I can't wait until the people left destitute by him come out of the woodwork and start telling their stories.... :lol:

    Would that be the same Saudi terrorists that were left to fester and grow for eight years under the previous Democratic Administration??

    The same ones the Bush Administration is destroying as we speak....

    I think it's great that good, rich people like Kerry and Edwards exist to balance the rich people like Bush-Cheney, who just want to rape us.

    Besides, if all the loot that Bush-Cheney have hidden was revealed, they'd take the lead in this little statistic.

    Yes&#33; Trial lawyers help level the playing field between corporations and government (who have their own armies of lawyers) and the people who get screwed by those corporations and government.

    Trial lawyers aren&#39;t the problem. Criminal businessmen and useless bureaucrats are.

    That&#39;s not to say their aren&#39;t stupid lawsuits. There are. Those should be thrown out of court without delay.

    Hooray for lawyers&#33;

    Trial lawyers are also the reason why auto insurance and home insurance rates have nearly doubled the past five years as well as totally ripping off the plaintiffs they are suppose to represent in favor of huge fees.

    Just some of the things they are credited with but the rats are to blind to see it.....hooray for trial lawyers&#33;

    Whoopee -- thousand dollar haircuts for the common man.

    Damn capitalist corporations, let&#39;s put them (and their thousands of employees) out of business. That&#39;ll teach them&#33;

    bman and Bob, Kerry/Edwards being the richest Pres/Vice Presidential ticket in US history looks really bad for Democrats.

    Totally Prima Facie&#33;

    Tax Facts


    Every year an independent tax watchdog group analyzes
    the average tax burden on Americans, and then
    calculates the "Tax Freedom Day". This is the day
    after which the money you earn goes to you, not the
    government.

    This year, tax freedom day was April 11th. That&#39;s the
    earliest it has been since 1991. It&#39;s latest day ever
    was May 2nd, which occurred in 2000.

    Notice anything special about those dates?

    Today John Kerry gave a speech in which he claimed
    Americans are actually paying more taxes under Bush,
    despite the tax cuts. He gave no explanation and
    provided no data for this claim.

    Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John
    Kerry are wealthy men.

    Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas.

    Kerry owns 4 mansions, all worth several million
    dollars. (His ski resort home in Idaho is an old barn
    brought over from Europe in pieces. Not your average
    A-frame).

    Bush paid &#036;250,000 in taxes this year; Kerry paid
    &#036;90,000. Does that sound right?

    The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has
    figured out a way to avoid paying his own.

    To impy EITHER of the "Big Two" political parties are giving us anything close to a "Common Man" is simply retarded (oops, sorry, I mean Metally ChallengeD....er...uh.....Differently Learning....or whatever todays P.C. phrase is).

    Fact is, both the men are so wealthy that they literally have almost nothing in common (lifestyle-wise) with yer average Joe or Jane US Citizen. Heck, Bush paid 5 TIMES the AVERAGE U.S. Citizens annual salary IN taxes, IF the statistic below is acurate............how can anyone that wealthy be considered common???

    Of course Kerry doesn&#39;t pay as much tax as ol&#39; GWB. Most of Kerry&#39;s wealth is not his own, it&#39;s his wifes, as you folks already knew. If GWB&#39;s wife was something more than a homemaker, Bush might be close to Kerry in terms of total assets. But you all knew that already.......

    Lets see, Bush has more personal cash than Kerry by far, but his wife is a Homemaker who has zero &#036;&#036;. Kerry is poorer than Bush personally, but has a wife who owns aproximately 60 Kazillion &#036;&#036;. But yall knew that too.....

    The real question then is THIS: How much did Mr. AND Ms. Bush pay in Taxes VS. How much did John AND his Wife pay in Taxes. I think you&#39;ll find the discrepancy a wee bit more in Kerry&#39;s favor that this questionable "Statistic" would imply.

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

    What I would be MUCH more interested in is this: Line by Line counts for donations to each Party/Candidate. I want to see WHO, in terms of companies and individuals, is supporting these folks the most. THAT would be a much more interesting debate. Of course, campaign finance is still so blatantly corrupt that such a list could never be possible.........too bad.
