Carol hard at work again to drive voters to the DemoKKKrat party.
By the way, you don't have a problem with states voting on issues such as abortion and gay marriage? Because that's where I stand and always have.

Many politically conservative women who do not share your extreme religious beliefs are driven away from Republican candidates by the abortion issue.
That's a fact.

As one Congressman said on the Senate floor today, "There's a 'Gone Campaigning' sign outside the Oval Office."
He's back today to high five his peeps in the Democratic Party and made a big to do out of snubbing Republicans because they won't let him have his way. As usual. Reminds me of a 5-year-old.
If Congress is leaving town, won't the Magic Negro be busy making a whole slew of nominations again?

Hee, hee.

You know what Wimpy, my 7 year old grandson is more creative than you. "It's not my fault.", " I didn't know.", Hey, look over there.", "I didn't do it." are really getting old and they make you sound like a fawning teenaged groupie.
So now you deny that there was a recession. Wow Mighty Dumb, that's quite the stretch.

An adult admits when his actions cause problems.

Your party broke it & you run around like a 7 year old blaming everyone else for the effects.

Tenzing said it was something we did in Iran back in the 1950s to protect our best interests against Russia's influence.
But, personally, I think the strict sanctions on Iraq during the Clinton administration that killed thousands of children probably made them the most angry.
Lesley Stahl interviewed Madeleine Albright on '60 Minutes' back on May 12, 1996:
Lesley Stahl (speaking of U.S. sanctions against Iraq): We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it.
...Seems Clinton may have not only started the housing market collapse but the plot for 9/11.
More people died in Iraq under Clinton than Bush - ironically.
Overthrowing the democratically elected government of Iran didn't have anything to do with Russian influence Carol, it had everything to do with putting in power a government friendly to western oil interests. The Shah was every bit the vicious dictator that Sadaam Hussein was who used his secret police the Savak to crush any opposition.
The sanctions against Iraq weren't Clinton's liar, they were UN sanctions put in place in 1990 under the George HW Bush administration. Those sanctions had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11. The president who ignored warnings from the outgoing administration that Al Qaeda was a danger to this country and did nothing when it was reported that Bin Laden was going to strike in the US is totally to blame. That would be George W Bush.
You keep ignoring the fact that the housing market collapse was caused by unregulated mortgage brokers who purposely made bad loans so that they could sell them as equally unregulated mortgage backed securities backed up by credit default swaps. Why were these things unregulated? Because that's the way the GOP wanted it.

So, you admit that Obama wants to tax assets, in addition to income?


I said no such thing. I was commenting on Dumbwaiter agreeing with your post and didn't pay that close attention to what you said.

Name any personal assets that the federal government taxes now that it didn't before Obama took office.

No, but the courts have denied the voters that choice in favor of some vague, nonexistent right.

The best strategy is to lay low until you have a favorable Court.

Retirement plans are in the crosshairs, but the plan is confiscation, not taxation.

Obama need heap big money fast.
