On Taxes, Paul Ryan Debates Mitt Romney
The next debate should be between Romney and his running mate, about what exactly is in their tax plan.
Romney says,“My plan is not like anything that's been tried before.” Ryan says,“it’s been done before.” Vice President Biden agrees with Romney and disagrees with Ryan.
Well, guys, which one is it? It would be nice to get a clear explanation from the Romney-Ryan campaign before the election, so voters who care about the tax and budget issue can decide.

With so many "stop" type regs--and NO give-- in some places, and so much WASTE in others (9 bill in FAILED green-how many YEARS worth of what could've been uput towards actually USEFUL subsidations????) well, who cares if people starve out, due to lack of work, eh DUH A VEY?
WTH is with the FDA lately anyway-all these other regs in "safety concerns"...looks like some more major "keep US citizens safe" FAILURE there too.
YES to KEYSTONE and American energy independence!!!!!!

This is because you are stupid.
The Nafta Treaty was signed by Bush.
The Nafta legislation was signed by Clinton.
If you weren't such a moron, you would know the difference.

Limbaugh Whitewashes Romney's 47 Percent Comments Ahead Of Presidential Debate
During an appearance on Fox News' Hannity the night after the first presidential debate, Romney told Sean Hannity that his "47 percent" comments were "completely wrong." The next day, Limbaugh expressed his displeasure that Romney was walking away from his comments to donors.
It makes sense that Limbaugh is upset with Romney for backing down. Limbaugh had repeatedly tried to cover for Romney's statement in the past. Last month, Limbaugh aired a clip of Obama referring to the Mother Jones video, then claimed that Romney "never talked about" 47 percent of Americans "being victims." Limbaugh also declared Romney's remark a "golden opportunity" and "could be a slam dunk" for conservatism.

posting this again.
All you right whiners want a surplus & fiscal responsibility.
We had it!!!!!
We were on track to have a 5.6 trillion dollar SURPLUS in 2012.
Then Bush took office in 2001.
In June 2012, CBO summarized the cause of change between its January 2001 estimate of a $5.6 trillion cumulative surplus between 2002 and 2011 and the actual $6.1 trillion cumulative deficit that occurred, an unfavorable "turnaround" or debt increase of $11.7 trillion. Tax cuts and slower-than-expected growth reduced revenues by $6.1 trillion and spending was $5.6 trillion higher. Of this total, the CBO attributes 72% to legislated tax cuts and spending increases and 27% to economic and technical factors. Of the latter, 56% occurred from 2009 to 2011.
The difference between the projected and actual debt in 2011 can be largely attributed to:
$3.5 trillion – Economic changes (including lower than expected tax revenues and higher safety net spending due to recession)
$1.6 trillion – Bush Tax Cuts (EGTRRA and JGTRRA), primarily tax cuts but also some smaller spending increases
$1.5 trillion - Increased non-defense discretionary spending
$1.4 trillion – Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq
$1.4 trillion - Incremental interest due to higher debt balances
$0.9 trillion - Obama stimulus and tax cuts (ARRA and Tax Act of 2010)
The U.S. budget situation has deteriorated significantly since 2001, when the CBO forecast average annual surpluses of approximately $850 billion from 2009–2012. The average deficit forecast in each of those years as of June 2009 was approximately $1,215 billion. The New York Times analyzed this roughly $2 trillion "swing", separating the causes into four major categories along with their share:
Recessions or the business cycle (37%);
Policies enacted by President Bush (33%);
Policies enacted by President Bush and supported or extended by President Obama (20%); and
New policies from President Obama (10%).
Several other articles and experts explained the causes of change in the debt position.
So there Tea Party members. We had what you wanted.
Look who took us off that path.
Paul Ryan, voting yes yes yes.
Republicans did this.

Okay, let's simplify.
America is on a continent, we call call it the North "American" continent. So is Canada, which means for starters-neither is in or off the middle east.(cool huh?) Thus, instant reduction on dependency of middle east oil, because when things are not stable in the middle east, that poses fluctuations and risk for those nations dependent upon it. Like for example-Libya.
You're webbie search for the day-please research and then post back to us, what nations form the orginization called OPEC.
Then, research how many jobs would be opened up, due to KEYSTONE running from the top of the United States (aka the northern continental United states) from Canada (alos the northern continent) all the way down to the bottom of the United States.
That'll be enough for one day-we won't go in to the positive cause and effects on the American economy just yet.
YES to American energy independence!!!!
#773136 Oct 16, 2012
Well, you did good there-for a MINUTE DUHMMY.
Figured out the Saddam the catalyst thing there yet? And where did Saddam live?
Try not to overload the space between yer ears with TOO much data FACTS.
WTH we doing (bombing) in Libya?? Hillary sayz-we will not retreat, on issues involving "american interests and values" Hmmm.
KEYSTONE-YES we can have American energy independence, w/

Canada is friendly to the United States, idiot. That makes a huge difference.
Well, that was true until Obama and the Democrats enacted a law in 2009 that placed strict controls on the Canada - US border. And that's the reason the Prime Minister of Canada looked like he wanted to strangle Obama in the photo op after their meeting in 2009.
Imagine that. Obama and the Democrats seal the border with Canada and erase the border with Mexico.

To the annoyance of the Romney campaign, members of Washington’s reality-based community have a habit of popping up to point out the many deceptions in the campaign’s blue-sky promises of low taxes and instant growth.[...]
Even Fox News isn’t buying it. Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the Romney campaign, said on Fox News Sunday that Mr. Romney would work out those details later with Congress. As the program’s moderator, Chris Wallace, pointed out, that’s like offering voters the candy of a 20 percent tax cut without mentioning the spinach they will have to eat.[...]
It is increasingly clear that the Romney tax “plan” is not really a plan at all but is instead simply a rhapsody based on old Republican themes that something can be had for nothing. For middle-class taxpayers without the benefit of expensive accountants, the bill always comes due a few years later.

... and you ran away from a discussion yesterday when you got caught mindlessly repeating the indoctrinated lies invented by the Democrats about Vietnam.
blah... blah... blah... indoctrinated lies invented by the Democrats... blah... blah... blah...
DBWriter educated reality-challenged Dave thusly:
We knew who he was, like we know who anyone of significance is. Ho Chi Minh didn't become a concern until he asked the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French after he went to Paris and asked them to come back to Veitnam. The Soviet Union used this as an opportunity to expand their influence during the Cold War. He didn't become significant until the Soviet Union was supporting his invasions of South Vietnam. If he never invaded South Vietnam, he'd be about as significant as some other small-pond bullshit dictator with too big of an ego in the world.
Listen carefully to this. This is the key ingredient to understanding the US involvement in Vietnam:
As the Soviet Union increased its involvement in the invasions of South Vietnam, the US increased its involvement in the defense of South Vietnam.
That means the US involvement didn't become significant until after Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Let's say that again:
Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Immediately after the UN authorized the creation of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh began invading South Vietnam.
This is exactly like how the proxy war in Korea started.
Now, idiot, here's the key:
As the Soviet involvement in the communist invasions of South Vietnam increased, the US involvement in the defense of South Vietnam increased.
US involvement didn't become direct until AFTER the UN divided the country.
The Soviet Union involvement was already at a significant level prior to this. In fact, as I told your ignorant ass previously, the communist used Soviet weapons at the battle of Dien Bien Phu, which was before the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries.
The Cold War is a global war.
The Soviet Union is engaged in Vietnam.
The communists divide Vietnam into two countries.
The communists begin invading free South Vietnam.
The US assists South Vietnam.
The strategy of the United States during the Cold War was not to abandon our allies and run away.
You seem to be ignorant of all of this.
As for Nixon winning the war, the war was all but over in 1970 when the NVA ran away to avoid destruction when the US forces entered the Parrot's Beak in 1970. They waited until US ground forces left Vietnam in 1971 to launch the largest communist invasion of the war. They were defeated by the South Vietnamese WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS.
Now, I want you to begin your next post with one of the lies in the system of lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam:
"The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themselves."
Then tell us about how the communists defeated the South Vietnamese in 1972 when they mounted the single largest invasion of the war, the Easter Offensive of 1972.
... got a problem, don't you....
It seems the single largest invasion of the war wasn't successful, and there is no history of any US ground combat units fighting against the communists.
Was it aliens from space that beat the communists?
Or, was it the South Vietnamese?
Now, tell us how the Democrat-controlled congress of 1973 helped the ally of the United States after they defeated a massive communist invasion during the Cold War.
