A proper reply back would involve a proper hashtag #itsmyfnpaychecknotjustthe2kdumbo... is that too many letters?
maybe the Mayan dooms day prophecies are true but they just miscalculated the date, it actually occured on 11/6/2012.
I wrote this to the RNC
What is going on with the republicans? Why are they caving in to Obama and reaching across the board to reach an agreement with him on his new "doubling down" tax proposals. A good friend of mine heard one of his parishioners at church talking to a polling rep that he had seen the same African American woman vote at least 6 or 7 times. We know who she voted for? This is only one isolated incident.
The RINO's must grow a spine and demand a full fledged investigation into the election results and the Electoral College should be abolished. What is going on in this country, what happened to the true conservatives? There are very few left and this disturbs me that we have a liar in the White House who won the election by fraud. He continually lied to the politically uneducated and they believed him because they want their entitlement programs to continue. WAKE UP GOP!!! Is the fair and balanced media wasting their time? The lamestream media ruined the election. Please reply.
The debt is over 16 trillion now and the total individual income tax collections in 2011 were 1.1 trillion against a 3.6 trillion dollar budget and 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. The total defense budget for next year is about 700 billion so lets play this out with just those numbers and taking the desires of liberals to their extreme. If 70% of income taxes are paid by the top 10% of earners then if we doubled their taxes it would raise 770 billion and if we entirely eliminated the military next year it would cut 705 billion assuming we could just stop and never pay a dime. Now assuming this has no effect on anything else in the budget like increasing social payments due to all the newly unemployed and poor we have covered 1.47 trillion dollars of the 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. Thus we have 147 billion to start reducing the debt. Now if we amortized our current debt balance at the stupid rate we are now borrowing from our selves of 2% for 30 years that payment would be 714 billion dollars per year. So as you see we are still running a deficit if we double the taxes on the top 10%, eliminate the military and keep all else constant other than amortize the debt at 2 percent we have a 500 billion dollar deficit. After their dream adjustments we still have the highest deficits ever under any administration prior to Obama.
Like it are not, he's got the ignoramus's with him. The "election" showed their ignorance. He knows that if they were dumb enough to vote for Communism, what's a little taxation?
I'd much more prefer to use the hashtag #my8days. That's how much of this years deficit the tax increase on the wealthy will pay for. We could all say what we would do with that 8 days of freedom just before the tax increases would hit us for the next 357 days each year.
"Susan Rice is extraordinary," said Obama. "Couldn't be prouder of the job she's done."
He knows his 47% to 51% will applaud.
Susan Rice is an embarrassment and a disgrace to women and Black Americans! If she cannot distinguish between communicating talking points and communicating facts and evidence how in the world are we to trust her concerning any communications of events or situations with the two-bit dictators around the world and other leaders? She has certainly proven her incompetence and ineptness concerning Benghazi. Moreover, she is the UN Ambassador so why is she the spokesperson for Libya and not the Ambassador to Libya or the United States Ambassador and Secretary of State?
How can raising taxes create an economic boom when employers are hardly hiring as it is?
When will they ask where that money will go? To paying off the 'debt'? Or pay off for more votes with benefits? How can you pay off a debt when the debt keeps growing? No one is going to see the debt going down with that tax increase, so why raise it?
Why not focus on freezing spending and cutting programs, period?
I wrote to my local liberal rag-tag paper today under Readers Opinions to ask a question of the moochers amoung us. Below is loosely my comment.
"How many people on public assistance with EBT cards, housing, welfare checks are going to buy lottery tickets today on Wednesday, Nov 28th? With a chance of 1 in 150 million to win might have something to do with your failure."
The lottery is an opportunity for stupid people to prove their ignorance. And Obummer is about to take more of working peoples money so stupid people can waste ours.
It's been too late since 2008 when the GOP kept kicking the can down the road and just didn't go all out with the debt ceiling.
"It’s imperative that Republicans hold the line and tell the truth about this nasty game Obama is playing with the American people."
You've invested a lot of HOPE in these arrogant pissants, scoop with very little or no support for the potential of the Republicans to save the Republic. As far as I am concerned, the Demo-vermin are the new Socialists and the Republicans are the new National Socialists.
They will sell us out to the communists an ounce at a time, turning a personal profit on every drop of strength, wealth and intelligence they concede, and when the crash of liberty comes, "the Republicans will be the men who will not be blamed for nothing."
To liberal lurkers, that great Scholar and Comedian, Steven Crowder illustrates redistribution on a level that even YOU in your infinitesimal intellect can understand.
I am so sick and tired of Republicans acting like wimps. No matter where they go they get no credit and all the blame. My2k my behind. Instead My2k it should be ObamaTookMy2K.
If Rand Paul runs in 2016 we need to back this man. I'm becoming Libertarian. I don't want to be tied to these old losers anymore. Let them die, figuratively and literally. I'm sick of having my property stolen by the commies with the GOP aiding them. Boehner is going to go down as one of the most pathetic excuses for a Speakers of the House ever.
I say that if Obama doesn't want to keep the tax cuts for everybody, regardless of income, then let it go UP for EVERYBODY. Seems that "fairness" in the Obama administration seems to only work for people who don't pay taxes. So now EVERYBODY can have some skin in the game. And once the people who voted for Obama see that they can get taxed PLUS receive fewer benefits (because we can't afford them anymore), then maybe they will re-think why they voted for this fraud in the first place. And if they don't like it, hey, there's always the 2014 midterm elections!
If the Republicans fall for this, they deserve to die as a party. Enough of this nonsense. Be men, or get out. And quit calling it "revenue." It's just like "global warming," is now "climate change." The Republicans allow themselves to adopt their language, etc.
They're like abused spouses who keep going back for abuse. Then they complain about getting beat up. The media are their batterers. They allow themselves to be abused. It's embarrassing.
Mark Levin had a good idea on his show last night on how the repubs could handle this. Have boehner tell Obama we're not raising anything right now. Boehner goes back to the house and they pass a bill keeping things the same for a year, and then kick it to the senate and let them turn it down and explain that to folks.
He also talked about repubs paying for 30 min tv time to explain our position. He thought they should pick Rubio, Ryan, or Cruz to do it. It may or may not help at all, but at least the repubs would go down fighting instead of being wimps and giving in to everything.
The whole lot of them (Republicans) are the most pathetic, brain-dead bunch I have ever seen. How is it possible that NONE of them are able to articulate clearly, concisely and with conviction the issues that are supposed to be near and dear to them? Nor can they articulate clearly and concisely the game that is being played on the American people by the Democrats and Obama thugs? The Democrats have no problem with their platform and messaging – as disgusting, offensive and wrong as it is. This was proven in the last election. They are as thick as thieves. Can’t the Republicans see that they are the mouse the cat (Democrats) plays with before it kills it and eats it?
More and more, I am thinking that many of the "Republicans" in the government and the power elite are really Democrats who are there for the sole purpose of subverting the Republican Party. Nothing else makes sense.
I had Fox in the background today and they had an interesting excerpt with Dick Durbin. He made an income comparison between a hedge fund manager and a navy seal. The point was about income inequality. His points were backed up by one of the resident liberals on the network (I believe Kristin Powers) who said that the inequality of income is far more disparate today than it was back in the days of JFK (when the D Party was all about tax cuts for everyone).
I believe this is the thrust or value proposition that the left will use for the next four years regarding just about every policy. They will continue to try to brainwash people into believing that it is immoral to make a lot of money. But that's not the worst of it. What they are really driving at is that the wealth of the world belongs to the people [the Government]..so therefore it is the government's role to play the equalizer. See, when you earn your money, it isn't necessarily yours. Therefore, it is entirely moral to make policy that will benefit the greater good with your excess wealth with or without your consent. It is a subliminal argument about property/money. It is purely socialist.
Some of you who may read this post will think I'm over the top. I only say to prove it out. Go watch the arguments being made on the fiscal cliff. They will dress it up as a modest increase that takes us back to "Clinton" levels. However, not a peep from either side about taking us back to Clinton levels of spending. Nope, just taxation....and that's a highly unfair and non-intellectual reasoning. If the reasoning is that our economy was great under Clinton, then you would argue for both the spending and taxation to be replicated, not just the taxation.
Folks, Satan doesn't slap us in the face and throw us into the pits of hell. He carefully leads us inch by inch, massaging our wrists before he puts on the chains.
My only disagreement with your post is it isn't pure socialism. It is oure communism.
But then again socialism is communism at a slower pace. ;)
Couldn't the house come up with a bill that just kicks the 'fiscal cliff' down the road to like 2014. Just keep the tax rates the same, no spending cuts.. Or did the deal they came up with in 2010 prevent them from doing that?
It would be interesting to know who is 'advising' Obama on these tax policies - he's to indolent to have thought these things through for himself.
Anyway, here is what happened in the UK, when the last, socialist PM raised the tax on "The Rich" to 50%, just before the elections he knew he would lose:
"Almost two-thirds of the country’s million-pound earners disappeared from Britain after the introduction of the 50p top rate of tax, figures have disclosed."
That's people who earned > £ 1 million p.a., not who had assets of > £ 1 million.
Instead of more revenue, the Treasury actually lost £ 7 billion in tax income through that 'tax the rich' ploy.
If Obama and the dems think American earners are more stupid than the Brits, and will take this rise lying down, they have another think coming ...!
RS, I agree but the GOP is already split and coming apart at the seams.
What do you do with a bully on the playground? You stand, look him in the eye and if he hits you hit him back harder. Yes, this is coming from a mom. Taught my son not to fight but my husband and I both taught him to hold his own with a bully.
The GOP needs to put away the box of tissues and get into the ring. If not there won't be anyone in the bleachers to cheer them on. Now, Republicans; you want someone or something to be afraid of? Be very afraid because the base is peeling away more and more each day.
Wow the idea that the GOP are being bullied by Obama is pretty incredible daydreaming. Tell that to the 60% of Americans who want the Bush tax cuts to expire for the wealthy.
The GOP are only being "bullied" by the American people.
There is no credible source to your claim that 60% of Americans want taxes hiked on the wealthy. However there is plenty of credible sources that show 60% of Americans want spending cut.
And you are not wealthy. That is your phantom internet claim and not verifiable by any stretch. Regardless it means little if anything at all. Buffet is wealthy. Claims he wants his taxes to go up. Gates too. Hollywood too. But then they run and hide it in foundations like the Clintons or hire lobbyists to get loopholes and exemptions. Romney isn't the only one with Swiss and Cayman accounts. Singapore is doing a booming business as well.
What Progressives really want is a two tiered society where there is rich and there is poor. They always think they will be among the rich and thus a ruler, a god, and exempt. they think they can throw scraps off of their table and therefore they are 'good' people. They didn't learn what a useful idiot was from Stalin or Mao.
But hey! From you guys we have learned what a hypocrite is...daily.
For the wealthy??? hey dumb dumb, are you wealthy? because your sorry self is going to be included in that number genius!
THE GOP ARE SUPPOSED TO BE LISTENING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, IT'S WHAT THEY GET THOSE BIG BUCKS TO DO!
Also, the 60% of whom you speak don't have the good sense to understand they're included in the Bush tax cuts. Wait til they wake up and find out they don't have a job because their boss can't afford to pay them.
This is nothing more than common sense which is becoming an unknown quantity in our society.
I thought freedom and democracy were synonymous? 60% of Americans want taxes to go up for the wealthiest Americans. Who are you to deny the will of the people?
And the majority of Germans approved of Adolf Hitler....at least at first; at least until they found out that he was a murderous lying sack of crap!
The point is, disinformation and lying propaganda can garner support for just about anything. But truth dispels the myths. And the truth is, whether 100% or 60% believe that taxing the rich is the right move, it will not even effect the tip of the tip of the problem.
But to understand that, you'd have to have the ability to grasp simple math concepts, and well, liberal radicals are simply too stupid. Their propaganda will run out one day and when the American people have grown tired of their tyranny and incompetence, they will be run out of town, and peace will come to America once again!
liberalism = criminalism
What is the source for your 60% figure?
If a majority thought rape was acceptable would that be OK with you?
I can't stand the thinking that people are entitled to some of the wealth of others just because they exist.
And us Americans just re-elected a Republican house to stand fast against it. Who are you to deny the will of the people?
Shouldn't the GOP respect the clear majority opinion of the country? If 60% of Americans wanted the Bush tax cuts to remain for the wealthy, don't you think the GOP would be pistol whipping Obama to death with it?
You're hilarious, considering that just over 60% of Americans (who are eligible) turned out to vote. You may want to take a remedial math class.
Didn't answer my question, why did Obama only win with 51% of the vote when 60% supposedly approve of his tax plan?
Obama and the democrats won by the skin of their teeth, and the Republicans keep the house. they have no mandate to shove Socialism done our throat.
I hope that's not a serious question. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/269833-poll-voters-support-taxing-rich-skeptical-of-raising-medicare-age
