Duke Energy To Forgive $10 Million Line Of Credit To DNC

I get that you are just trying to distract from Trump paying the $6 million from the billions Trump has. Trump could write that check and not blink an eye but he hasn't even forgiven the $50 million he said he would pay for his own election, in spite of all his promises.

He's a billionaire, he can pay the RNC for the losses they have experienced because Trump is such an offensive candidate that they have lost sponsors.
So now its ok that big businesses have tax deductions and dont pay "their fair share"?

If this had been the GOP, you'be moaning and groaning about it..

Trump being able to, doesnt matter.. your WISH to take other individuals money is meaningless. you have NO POWER, no one cares what you say.

I hope Republicans will do some research and boycott all these companies. I am and will.

Of course, the RNC isn't hurting for money. More than $58.5 million has been donated, roughly 90 percent of the projected fund-raising total, according to Emily Lauer, a spokeswoman for the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee.

I repeat - how is it liberals' fault if some of the Republican donors who originally pledged money to pay for the Republican convention have decided to not honor their pledges????
Reading comprehension issues? The "blame" is the fact that the liberals, once again, did not tell the whole story. Of course not, that's the liberal way: lie through their teeth ...course, look at who they follow? A lying scum bag hag who should be in prison...she won't tell the truth, and liberals think that's okay because that's what they do, too.

Wasn't it one of your own who said: "lying liars who lie"? Yeah, he pegged disgusting liberals quite nicely.

As for Hillary getting "her money", I wouldn't be bragging about that - or will the liberals lie and pretend all of it came from legit places.

Lying liberal puke: "What bullying?"

I'm sick of liars. They know damn good and well "what bullying" and then go to forums and comment sections blinking their eyes widely and feigning innocence. May work on their own ilk, idiotic liberals, but it doesn't work on anyone else paying attention.

[SIZE=6]Margaret Sanger
[/SIZE][SIZE=5]Founder of Planned Parenthood
[/SIZE]
[SIZE=7]In Her Own Words[/SIZE]
[CENTER][SIZE=3]
"The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race
([/SIZE]Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)
[SIZE=2]Copyright © 2001 Diane S. Dew www.dianedew.com [/SIZE][/CENTER]


Margaret Sanger (1883-1966) [SIZE=3]On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, [/SIZE]Pivot of Civilization, [SIZE=3] referring to immigrants and poor people[/SIZE] On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.
On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932
On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
On religious convictions regarding sex outside of marriage:
"This book aims to answer the needs expressed in thousands on thousands of letters to me in the solution of marriage problems... Knowledge of sex truths frankly and plainly presented cannot possibly injure healthy, normal, young minds. Concealment, suppression, futile attempts to veil the unveilable - these work injury, as they seldom succeed and only render those who indulge in them ridiculous. For myself, I have full confidence in the cleanliness, the open-mindedness, the promise of the younger generation." Margaret Sanger, Happiness in Marriage (Bretano's, New York, 1927)
On the extermination of blacks:
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon



Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, In Her Own Words

Deflection alert! You said David Duke and the KKK... not Margarent Sanger. So, again, where is your proof that David Duke and the KKK are "tapped out" in donating to clinton?
