Another excuse to run a story about Mitt Romney. Whew! I bet you
guys were going through withdrawals.
If one of our children wants to receive an education at one of the LDS Church
schools and is not accepted because of the number of applications received at
all of those institutions, SVU would be a great alternative. I would have loved
to have had one of my 12 children attend university at that school.
I am excited. My family and I tried to go to a campaign rally 30 miles away last
fall, and we even had tickets, but the last 3 miles took about 2 hours to
travel, as the demand was so great and the freeway was stopped, bumper to
bumper, and we didn't get in. My 8 year old cried. So Mitt if you read
this, to make up for that, while in Buena Vista you should come to our house!
And see your bumper stickers still on our cars! (Plus, I had a relative of yours
in an SVU class I teach.) We are conservatives and know you were the right
choice to get the USA moving again, but unfortunately, "low information
voters" didn't agree.
Oh what could have been...someone who actually has run a business be president.
Oh, I know the tax thing will come up in a thread below so let me make it simple
to understand. Mitt made a ton of money, taxed on it the same rate everyone
is... Because he re-invested his profits (didn't purchase a hip sports-car,
didn't buy himself new threads etc, his gains from the investments he made
(again, with his money) are being taxed AGAIN at a lower rate. Yes the things we
all wish we could do, he does, so we throw stones at him and call him a cheat.
Anyways good luck Mitt, knock it out of the park!
@KJB1Yet another excuse to criticize running a Mitt story.
Uncle Rico, love Romney all you like, but you are dead wrong on the tax issue.
I also grieve that we don't have a man who has actually run a business run
our country. When I think of what is coming with new taxes and obamacare, it
scares me. I wish BYU (my alma) would have him speak at a graduation. BTW-DN -
you have a better picture of Mitt in your archives and I surely wish you'd
post it. He is a handsome, intelligent man.
It makes me happy to read this. I can't think of a better speaker for ANY
university! Mitt may not be our president, but his good examples and wisdom can
still make a difference for our troubled country!
"I also grieve that we don't have a man who has actually run a business
run our country.""Oh what could have been...someone who actually
has run a business be president."So then, neither of you would
be voting for Paul Ryan or Marco Rubio for president, correct?And
would not have voted for Reagan.
We went to an open house last fall and I was so impressed with the students and
faculty. I will send every one of my kids there if I can. President Sybrowski
mentioned that even he was surprised when he arrived that they had such a large
proportion of students who had declined admissions offers at BYU. SVU is a great
place. I wish it had been around when I was in college.
Esquire . Beings you are so sure Uncle Rico is dead wrong. Prove it here and
now. Or youe words are void
Esquire:You are dead wrong on the tax issue.
Great school (we have a daughter there) great man, great opportunity to hear him
We all wondered what Mitt was doing to keep busy these days.
Will signs expressing any view other than "tax cuts for the rich" be
allowed at this event, or will they be confiscated? BTW - I'm sure the DN
has at least a hundred pictures of Mitt Romney, all of them flattering.
@ThornBirds 11:37 a.m. March 23, 2013We all wondered what Mitt was
doing to keep busy these days.---------------------Actually, we "all" didn't. A lot of us hoped that he would, for
once in his life, act for the good of the United States and its people. We
hoped he would just go away, keep out of public view, and keep his mouth shut.
It's long past the time that he should be inflicting himelf on this country
and its people. Enough is enough.Don't go away mad, Mitt.
Just go away. And STAY away.
@Uncle RicoOnly his investment profit is taxed at a lower rate. He's
not being taxed on the same income twice. @starbrightWe have
had very few non-farming businessowners as President before, but all of them
were terrible presidents.
@atl134 - Uncle Rico said that the "gains are taxed at a lower rate". It
has been already clarified. This is one of those times where I wish
I could just go and hear the man speak for the love of country, education, and
family. Seems like we lack the positive in our media right now. Would love for
media to step up and turn that around.
SVU is a private institution and has the right to invite whomever it wishes to
speak. Still, I would hope in the name of academic integrity they would invite a
balancing voice to speak as well. But I doubt that will happen.
Frankly, I don't want a CEO to run this country, we are NOT a business and
government does not function in the same manner as a business.
