Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Ordinary income is usually guaranteed. If you work a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to the pay that you were offered when you took the job. Capital gains involve risk. They are not guaranteed. You can invest your money and lose it all. Moreover, the year when you receive capital gains may not be the same as the years when they were earned.
It would appear that you are the idiot, or at the very least deliberately dishonest in your assertion.
First of all, by truncating my original post you're showing yourself to be intellectually dishonest and sidestepping the question of who the 47% are that pay no federal income taxes.
But to respond to your narrow interpretation my response is so what? Sure there's risk involved but there's also risk in a trip to the blackjack table. Why not give a special rate for gambling winnings?
Most of those who get their income from investments don't keep all their eggs in one basket and can leverage their losses against their gains at tax time. If you put all of your cash into a single investment and you lose then those are the breaks.

<your post that I replied to in its entirety>
You're either a liar or abysmally ignorant. When Obama took office GDP was at -5.6% we moved out of the negative area by the third quarter of 2009 and since then growth in GDP have averaged 2.16% per quarter.
Corporations don't want government to stop spending dimwit, they just want a larger share to be shoveled their way.
The people who don't pay federal income taxes are retirees on Social Security, veterans on pensions or living on disability checks and those who even though working don't make enough to pay income taxes.
Another group that doesn't pay income taxes are millionaires and billionaires whose income is derived from investment income. They pay a capital gains tax which is half of what people who actually work for a living pay.
You're an idiot!
<end your post>

You accuse me of being intellectually dishonest and then make a comparison of investing in the economy to gambling at a blackjack table, like they should be treated similar in regards to taxation. You never posed a question as to who the 47% are to answer, so this would be just another demonstration of “your” intellectual dishonesty.

Your lack of understanding of how the taxation system works and the general principles of success in this county appear to be your biggest problem though, as your reply did nothing to address what you state as my narrow interpretation of your response. This is most likely why your hand is out like many of the 47% in this country.

As of the 2006 election, the Republican party holds less than 13% of the seats in both legislative houses of the General Court: in the House, the balance is 141 Democratic to 19 Republican, and in the Senate, 35–5.

Failed leadership is only the tip of the iceberg. Obama's spineless reaction resulted in the death of american patriots and for what, to protect his election chances. I hope he takes that guilt to his grave because he knows his actions led to their violent deaths that could have been prevented. No excuse can undo that reality.
Why on earth would any sane person believe that the President of the United Sates of America have a role in planning the security of an obscure outpost like Benghazi? Isn't that what the military generals and state department are for?

As the Obama administration set the Middle East on fire, without congressional advice or consent, in direct violation of the War Powers Act, they knowingly and purposefully refused to properly secure our consulates abroad, allowed known terror organizations to flood into Libya, funding and arming “insurgents” that included known leaders of Al Qaeda and other groups operating under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the end responsible for the attacks that killed four U.S. diplomats in Benghazi.

Yeah ... your right (NOT) why would any sane person believe that Obama is responsible.

It would appear that you are the simpleton

Massachusetts has the most doctors per 100,000 residents,[224] the second lowest infant mortality rate,[225] and the lowest percentage of uninsured residents (for both children as well as the total population).[226] According to Businessweek, commonwealth residents have an average life expectancy of 78.4 years, the fifth longest in the country

You sound like one of Madoff's victim who beleived he was going to take them to the land of milk and honey. They ran him down to hand over their money and later found they were duped and screwed.

Now here come Romney with his con to steal the white house and fools like you learned nothing from Madoff.

Romney will make Madoff look like chicken change after him and his cronies get thru raping and sucking this country dry.

This can be avoided. Buyers remorse will not help

Vote Obama!

Obama's military record is.....????
Romney's military record or lack there of, is not really important when he is running against someone with NO military experience themself.
Obama has also shown that he will not even think to increase security at our embassey's on 9/11 like has been done every year since 2001 and that is even if they request security on several occasions, even getting to a point of practically begging for more security. But man he'll get right on tracking them down won't he? He hasn't even admitted it wasn't the damn video yet so chances are he figures they had a good excuse and all he needs to do is apologize, after all, someone in the United States made fun of Mohammad and we know the president won't stand for that!
Face it, no matter what happens in the election Obama would never get through a second term without being impeached for the Lybia failure. That is Obama's "Nixon moment", except in Obama's moment 4 American's died, including our Ambassador. Obama will be thrown out on his ass because unlike Nixon he doesn't have the ability to show the honor to step down on his own....he is far to narcissistic to do that.
The point is that while in college Romney was pro war and pro draft. He was alright with others fighting and dying for something he believed but couldn't bring himself join the fight.
By the way moron it was the GOP that cut funds for diplomatic security below what the Obama administration requested. They cut funding by$128 million for fiscal 2011 and $331 million for 2012.
There will be no impeachment because despite what nitwits like you claim there's no impeachable offense.

As it seems many people prefer a President who like women to smoke his cigar than a President who invites the Taliban to his office (Reagan) or another President who disposes a government in Iran and installs a Shar that does the US bidding while the population starves. Then wonders why America gets called the great Satan.
America remembers what Republicans do in office, Romney wants you to forget. Republican administrations have painted more targets on the USA than any other in history it's how Al Queda was formed.
And you want more of the same!
Vote Obama to get America back on track.
It seems the people of Iran who lived under the Shah and the ruthless dictators in power there today want to go back to the time before the mullahs took over.
In case you've been in a coma the past decade or so, the mullahs are having to shoot people down like dogs in the streets to maintain their power.
... of course, there isn't a lot of discussion about that on CBS, ABC, NBC and MSNBC. Something to do with Obama being an empty chair while that was happening.

Besides, under the Shah, our universities were filled with average everyday middle class students from Iran. Today, the Iranian population is imprisoned, and only the ruling elite have a chance for an education outside Iran.

... you're an ignorant dupe.
