Parroting a dumb Fox talking point is a good indication of brainwashing.

Thanks for showing us your true colors
Parroting a dumb Fox talking point at face value is so typical on this forum. So easy and undemanding, right?

Oh, you "read" such an opinion, but cannot link it for some reason.

The (R)etards are really misunderstanding all this.

We do not so much "support Obama," or Democrats, per se.

We just really, really, dislike Romney and you.

Does that make more sense?

Just trying to help.

High tech companies such as Apple and Google have been pretty much left alone by the Democrats when it comes to anti-trust regulations and taxes. So, no naturally the "word goes out" in those companies to support the Democrats. If the Democrats went after Google, which they should, those people working at those companies would be singing a different tune.

People who are on the 'government take' (includes not only welfare recipients but government employees also) are not going to vote for someone who wants them to actually work for the wages they get. Government workers do not produce anything, no product of any kind, they are no more than a drain on the taxpayers. As for the black population, the black man in this video clip says it all: http://www.youtube.com/v/F0sk4yGaEk8&hl=en_US&fs=1&
Well, then you are suspecting wrong. Did you happen to notice the article is speaking of Silicon Valley - not Hollywood/LA or Oakland? I happen to live in Silicon Valley, and most of the rich Democrats here are HIGHLY educated, gainfully employed (or retired), and work harder than most of the whiny RWNJs. There are very few "celebrities" around here, and the number of pro athletes is hardly enough to skew our percentages - and yet something like 70% of this region votes Dem. Why? I think the answer is in my first descriptor, highly educated.

Yeah, that too! I'm no "Obama worshiper" - far from it, in fact I usually identify as Independent-Libertarianish and strongly considered voting for Johnson. But as I was telling my family the other day, I voted for Obama simply to take my popular vote (since electoral is moot here in CA) AWAY from Romney. It was less of a vote for Dems, and more of a vote against the alternative.

And again, you would be wrong. Some of the smartest people I know vote Dem, and I'm not just talking about people with fancy degrees... people with actual intelligence, in both the book and street variety. And not to brag, but my IQ is Mensa-qualifying and I voted for Obama.

Call republicans obstructionist go ahead lol.

Whenever you wish higher taxes on your neighbor for vengeance, remember we have what you want, we also have our own form of vengeance. If you think obstructionism is so obvious wait until you feel what we will quietly but oh so effectively do in return. It's not that we want to BUT we WILL if forced.

Over educated and under sensed.

Some live life from a textbook, others go out and experience.

Simple as that.

You can read about how something should work all you want and that's fine for math and science. Pretty black and white. Social issues, not so much.
