So "the rich", in Democratic districts,
by JP Bill / October 17, 2014 5:32 AM PDT

have been pushing the Democrats (their representative) to complain about 'the rich" Republicans.

Perhaps they're "rich' but "not AS rich"?

"The Rich" ARE a fickle lot aren't they?

During the 2012 presidential election, Republican nominee Mitt Romney declared, "We're not the party of the rich. We're the party of the people who want to get rich."

We're not the party of the rich. We're the party of the people who want to get richER."

RICH?......... Who me?...............I'm not rich.

If Romney said that, I'd have to agree

with the last part of the statement. I'd also have added that poor folks who complain about the wealthy are not confined to those in one party. The lust for more money isn't a rare affliction.

I notice you've omitted any reference to Corporate donations
by Rob_Boyter / October 17, 2014 11:27 AM PDT

to Republican causes, and wealthy Individual contributors like Sheldon Adelson who donated nearly 100 Million to the 2012 election in order to unseat the President.

To you, any Democrat having any money is some sort of hypocrisy. I think expecting Democrats to be indigent is simply wishful thinking on your part and another indication that you are totally detached from reality.

Both sides have wealthy donors, but Republicans have the deepest pockets, primarily from Corporations.

If these figures are correct

2012 campaign spending per candidate

Obama outspent Romney by nearly 5%. FWIW, that's fairly close to the popular vote spread as well. I don't see that it matters where the money comes from as long as it's not from outside of the US.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
