All very tedious.
And how many times did the loony-left complain when Bush was at his Texas ranch. Ya know he had everyone from Putin, to the King of Saudi Arabia to Prime Minister Tony Blair do official visits to The Ranch?

Sanders Calls for Shared Sacrifice
Sanders compiled a list of some of the 10 worst corporate income tax avoiders.
1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.(Source: Exxon Mobil's 2009 shareholder report filed with the SEC here.)
2) Bank of America received a $1.9 billion tax refund from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion.(Source: Forbes.com here, ProPublica here and Treasury here.)
3) Over the past five years, while General Electric made $26 billion in profits in the United States, it received a $4.1 billion refund from the IRS.(Source: Citizens for Tax Justice here and The New York Times here. Note: despite rumors to the contrary, the Times has stood by its story.)
4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.(Source: See 2009 Chevron annual report here. Note 15 on page FS-46 of this report shows a U.S. federal income tax liability of $128 million, but that it was able to defer $147 million for a U.S. federal income tax liability of $-19 million)
5) Boeing, which received a $30 billion contract from the Pentagon to build 179 airborne tankers, got a $124 million refund from the IRS last year..(Source: Paul Buchheit, professor, DePaul University, here and Citizens for Tax Justice here.)
6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.(Source: the company's 2009 annual report, pg. 112, here.)
7) Goldman Sachs in 2008 only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department.(Source: Bloomberg News here, ProPublica here, Treasury Department here.)
8) Citigroup last year made more than $4 billion in profits but paid no federal income taxes. It received a $2.5 trillion bailout from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury.(Source: Paul Buchheit, professor, DePaul University, here, ProPublica here, Treasury Department here.)
9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2006 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.(Sources: Profits can be found here. The deduction can be found on the company's 2010 SEC 10-K report to shareholders on 2009 finances, pg. 127, here)
10) Over the past five years, Carnival Cruise Lines made more than $11 billion in profits, but its federal income tax rate during those years was just 1.1 percent.(Source: The New York Times here)

Don't forget that democrats and republicans are responsible for writing the tax code my friend. But over the last 60 years congress has been dominated by democrats. It is only in the last twenty that the electorate has experimented with shifting the leadership back and forth between the two criminal enterprises we call the democrat and republican parties. In the last five years the gap between rich and poor has grown. So much for the little guy.

YOU, on the other hand, sound like the late Rush of Arizona. Same boorish, profanity-laden, dirty, anal, homophobe and ignorant prose. Now, THAT was easy.(Wendy, tm reg'd).

Obama scandal are too many too list. Obama hasn't served one day with out a scandal. Starting with his pledge to destroy our country. His first day in office he repeated his pledge to destroy The Constitution. The Rose garden beer summit was minor for Obama,but was more scandalous than any thing any other President has ever done while serving that office. Obama's refusal to pursue actions against Black Panthers who violated voter rights at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia. The Fast and Furious scandal killed thousands of people. Solyndra became the big scandal of Obama's fist tour,but was only a sample of the corruption surrounding Obama and his pay back to political donors. Members of this administration could and should serve a combined thousands of years in prison over the IRS scandal. The Benghazi scandal is actually three scandals because Americans died and dozens were injured and yet Obama refuses to account for his actions. The Obama 1st Amendment scandal is a full out attack on The Constitution, and Obama's attack of Rosen is criminal and Obama should serve years in prison just for that. Obamas support of Kathleen Sebelius' illegal activities is enough to warrant impeachment procedures. Obama's support of Pigford II has costs tax payers billions of dollars.

The ONLY thing I was looking foreward to when Obama got elected the first time was the whole...
Post bills on the net for 2 weeks of public debate before he would sign.
Then when he was sworn in he dropped the bible picked up a pen and gave the banks an insane amt of money.
If you really mean that I agree with you. Irresponsible falls short of describing his actions. It's his intent that concerns me, because I have kids.

Is everyone that has an education the same person to you?
It depends on what you consider an education. Many who are educated become arrogantly dismissive of those who chose not to pay an institution for their "brand" of intellect.If education accomplishment is the marker of success, we shouldn't be 26th in the world for math and science. Another sure sign that relinquishing ourselves to the whims of government is a fools game.

Again you get it wrong. You confuse predictions with lies, though both you and LRS are adept at both.
Big deal, so you got the trucker prediction right and gave an opinion on veterans' benefits, laying the blame on Obama whilst it is the Tea Party gang of 40 and lame Speaker who cut their benefits by closing the gov't. 50%, that IS a personal record for you. What about the list of bad predictions of yours I published a while back, like the Jacksonville mayoral race,(damn misleading newspapers), the presidential race (damn misleading polls), the supreme court decision on Obamacare etc. Need I say more? Do you want a list of lies like the partial, very partial one I posted for your buddy LRS?
Sorry, the House passed a bill to open the government and Dirty Hairy Reid would not pass it as is much less send it to Obama to sign.
Tell me Jacqueau, who was at fault when the government was shut down a dozen times while Reagan was president? I have asked you before but you NEVER answer.

I wouldn't have a problem if Barry went "home" on a regular basis to conduct the business of the people. If that is the environment that he does his best "thinking" and problem solving I would welcome it. Being at home working is far different then being on the golf course. I play golf, and to do it well, you must be focused on golf.

The president has played 146 eighteen hole rounds of golf since being elected, that is a fact. Considering on a good day, the average eighteen hole round takes at least 5 hours, not counting getting to and from the course. So figuring that time with a half hour either side of playing the round for travel and preparation to play, we have 146x6=876 hours. When we then divide 876 by a 40 hour work week that comes to 21.9 weeks dedicated to golfing while our soldiers continue to arrive at Dover AFB in caskets, and the economy appears to benefit the rich while the rest of Americans struggle. When we then divide 21.9 by 4 weeks in a month, we arrive at the number 5.47 months the Liar in Chief has not been focused on "we the people", who are the ones that pay his salary. Thats before we get into the time spent playing pick up basketball games he is so fond of. Once again you attempt to deflect the truth with your propaganda of pointing the finger at others, just like the president.
So many calculations and you still come up with a lie. Hate, for you, drives you to be some kind of mathematical genius.

#1MVetMarch: Barrycades down! Spite House barricades no match for Million Vets March [photos]
Posted at 9:19 am on October 13, 2013 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

Citizens are taking to Washington, D.C., Sunday morning to protest the Spite House’s closing of the nation’s memorials. Twitter users are using #VetMarch and #1MVetMarch to spread the word and to provide on-the-scene reports from the Million Vet March. As Twitchy reported, Sarah Palin is attending the march as well.

She is not alone!

A little rain won’t stop veterans and patriots.

The event just kicked off at 9:00 a.m. ET and the crowd continues to grow swiftly:

Barrycades? Ha! They are no match for this patriotic crowd. Civil disobedience for the win.

Bam!

And an exit reminder:

God bless them all.

Twitchy will continue to monitor the Million Vets March and provide further updates.

Remember, Obama arrested EIGHT Democrat Congressmen at the Immigrant rally last week!
You wrtoe : "Remember, Obama arrested EIGHT Democrat Congressmen at the Immigrant rally last week!" I can't deny it, but I didn't know about it. Grateful for how and when Obama personally arrested these Congressmen,( you didn't say he had them arrested, you said he ARRESTED them) who they are, what party and a reliable source, please. Will I wait a long time, or having no proof, will turn out to be a famous "red herring" or "chain pulling"?

Don't recall asking you a question. Which brings us back to READING COMPREHENSION...again.

Either multiple educators failed you, or your mother put your helmet on backwards in the mornings.

But hey... I understand.

When you can't get an edge on someone, just invent something for them to be wrong about or obsessed over.

Can you show me swinging at Bush?

Jeez... it is like Topic's special education team in here.

You, Welby, LRS, TD.... list goes on...

Hell, I'll bet we could put together a Special Olympics basketball team in this thread alone. Complete with bench warmers.
