No problem. As long as you make the 47% that don't pay taxes start paying taxes.

The wrong questions are being asks.

The real questions are, how free the poor are, how free are the unemployed, how free are those that are disadvantaged and in reference to that what is governments role ot correct this?

Mitt the Twitt bull shit. If anyone spends even a dollar , they pay sales tax. If they buy a gallon of gasoline, they pay highway tax. If they own a car, they pay vehicle tax. If they own any kind of home, they pay real estate tax. If they rent, they pay personal property tax. If they drive on the turnpike, they pay road use tax (tolls). If they run a business, they pay franchise tax. Some people invested in municipal bonds with money they paid taxes on already . You need to take a big dose of exlax and drain that republikan bs off your brain. Look in the mirror, brown eyes, right?

Whoa wait a second...you guys were making bones about voter ID because people didn't need an ID because they didn't need a car to get around.

So if they don't have an ID to drive a car they don't have(no vehicle tax), then they don't need gas(fuel tax)for the car they don't have, or the tires(disposal tax), inspections(state taxing) and they sure aren't driving on your turnpike(road tax.)

And that is just one example...But they are still getting Social security, medicare/medicaid, free obamaphones, food stamps, wic.

Military gets the shaft all the way around. Not only do you get shot at for protecting people who don't want protecting, they have to pay taxes both federal and state, so they themselves can earn their pay and or allowances.

But they still us the same infrastructure you or I use. They still purchase the same finished goods and comodities you or i use. While they have a tough job, why should they get a free pass when they are using all the same things you or I use everyday? Not to mention they are protecting freedoms, including their own.

Not only do you want to take from people who earned their money (the rich) and give it to people who did not earn it (the poor), you guys actually believe these actions are completely ok and justifiable under some blanket that it is the "right thing" to do.

The right thing to do is quit handing out the handouts. Those who take the handouts need to quit think that working a "menial" job is beneath them and go to work. Not everyone can be a wall street exec or an astronaut.

Oh yeah, higher learning is not required to go to work. It is a privledge to attend institutes of higher learning to become more educated, not a right.

Isn't it very telling to you and other conservative Republicans that liberal Democrats in general have more of an empathy with the common people that you and other Republicans tend to shun and put down from your Ivory towers of elitism? Racism, bigotry and separation of yourselves from the common folks is your m.o. That, my friend, is the reason that you lost the last election, but you guys never seem to figure that out, do you?

“There has been a shift in the philosophy and attitudes of the public from a belief in individual responsibility, from a belief in a society in which the role of government was as an umpire, to a belief in a society in which the emphasis is on social responsibility and the role of government as Big Brother and protector of the individual.”

ATK stock is going to take a hit if the fiscal cliff is not avoided.

ATK (Alliant Techsystems) is one of the largest aerospace and defense companies in the United States.

However. Here is a big news feed for them.

"On March 12, 2012 ATK announced that it was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets"

But keeing them on unemployment, taking handouts sorry, entitlements, food stamps, wic and so is the better option?

College loans are already bursting. Problem is that more people now have college education but can't find work in their chosen majors and have flooded the job market working jobs that are completely unrelated to their majors. That, to me, is a waste of time, money and education. And probably because they did not take the time to research it and figure out what was involved or the major entailed. A guy I know, went back to school for Anthropology. Unless you are going to go do research in some third world country on an extinct civilization or become the next Indiana Jones, not a lot of demand for that degree let alone career field.

When I chose to go back to school, I looked into geology, accounting and computer engineering. I have friends in the oil industry that could of put me to work looking for new wells and so on easily with a geology degree. However, the sacrifice of being gone 220+ days a year was more than I was willing to partake or subject my family to. Computer engineering was easy to rule out because as soon as a computer is built, it is obsolete. Accounting seemed to be the easiest way to make a lot of money the fastest. Hasn't proven me wrong yet.

Tell you all that to demonstrate what some forethought into making a decision based on good information and research will do for you. Unless your higher education is leading you to a path that requires licensure or a professional stamp of approval, you can get by on a high school education. But that higher education is not a right. It is a privledge. It is a privledge at a cost that is unreasonably high. One area the democrat president and I see eye to eye on. I know, beyond a reasonable doubt, the fact that education happens in institutions of higher learning is solely a by product. All colleges are in business to make money. Why do you think they over alot incoming freshmen? Because they know not all will show, but some will. And those some are bucks. Bucks that help the colleges become buck rogers. Parents take loans on the best notions for their children because every parent wants their children to be sucessful. And it is not a reflection, most times, when kids fail or flunk out of school. Just part of growing up. In the same token, they really aren't kids either. They are adults and if parents would treat them accordingly and not as a friend or peer, soceity would not be in the peril it is in. Instead, moms and dads want colleges to baby sit their children while they go to work and brag to their coworkers how well their kids are doing in school. Just my thoughts.

Don't know anything about that stock. You offering a poker tip?

Parents and students alike defaulting on their loans is no worse or better than people who took loans for mortgages they can't afford. Which is what caused the economy to tank in 2008.
