I cannot wait to see the mass exodus from California of a majority of the real producers now that they have passed this tax. I should be a good test as to what will happen in this country when Obama attempts the same thing on a national level.
LOS ANGELES California voters have approved Gov. Jerry Brown's plan to raise income taxes on the wealthy and raise the statewide sales tax to fund K-12 schools and help balance the state budget.
The Proposition 30 vote was close and its passage was not clear until early Wednesday.
Its passage increases the statewide sales tax by a quarter cent for four years, starting in January, while people who make more than $250,000 a year will pay higher taxes for seven years retroactive to the beginning of 2012.

America once was the greatest nation. Sad to see it go. Well, you Demonbrats can always blame Bush for 4 more years of nothing, and your country going to hell in a hand basket.
We sure need God's help even more NOW!
Hey, Republicans!
Did you hear about this lady that voted for Romney, and the machine kept on showing that she voted for Obama? They told the lady they were having trouble with that machine. Why didn't they close that machine down, if they know it was fcking up? Hmm. makes you wonder about this election, doesn't it?
There was obviously wide spread voter fraud, but who in the Obama Administration is going to investigate it? Nobody, that's who.

When was the last time a POTUS was reelected with unemployment as high as it is?
It's not about Obama. Deal with it. It's time to step out of the FOX bubble. It would seem to me that you now have no choice. The election is over, the FOX lies have no bearing on anything anymore, so let's leave the childish behavior behind and see if we can't come to a consensus on the best way forward.
He was reelected because too many people have lost their moral compass, their bearings and their minds.

You helped reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck.

Maybe you should think about that for a while.

Jobs are sent overseas because foreigners have proven to be better, more efficient workers and by sending the jobs overseas, companies don't have to deal with the corrupt labor unions.

Where Did the Tea Party Go?
For two years, conservatives have been pointing to 2010 as the model to follow in every subsequent election. They overlooked one basic fact:
In 2010, voters over 60 accounted for 34% of the electorate.
In 2012, voters over 65 (I don't know why they changed the age breakouts, but they did) accounted for 15% of the electorate.
The rest, as they say, was as easy as falling downstairs.
YOu see some of the LSM media "pollage" last night--

They can think of more ways to micropoll any and everything lol.

Let's see, I turk a poll yestaday--7 outer 9 people I purled voted fer romney. Five were womens, tree was worms, one no votey, age in wisdom why bother, the electoral process is flawed anyway.

One were evangelical and bless it's heart-still thinks straight ticket is it lol. Duh rest, just Mericans with SOME faith and hope for BETTER days ahead. So let's see, whats dem pollage percentages again?

The Romney "Landslide" That Wasn't

Every election cycle brings with it a host of pundits who get the results wrong; who misread the campaign and perhaps view events through hopeful, partisan eyes. And there's nothing unusual or especially egregious about that. What was different this time was the spectacle of a whole slate of Obama-hating conservatives who claimed that despite very clear polling evidence to the contrary, that Mitt Romney would win the election in a "landslide." Not only would the Republican defeat Obama, but he'd also do it sweeping, historic fashion.

It was fascinating to watch because these claims were supported by nothing but blind faith, as well as the far-right's signature hatred of the president and a conspiratorial view of the media. And this was the fantastic, implausible scenario conservatives fed their grateful readers, viewers and listeners right up until last night.

Indeed, it was that blinding contempt for President Obama that led so many pundits astray in the final weeks of the campaign. Unable to even comprehend how Obama would win re-election, not after he'd been denounced as a socialist, Marxist, and racist who sympathized with terrorists who was "the second coming of Jimmy Cater," his fervent media critics relied on their gut.(Truthiness?) And their gut told them this election was a no-brainer.

The Romney Landslide nicely captured the flight of fancy -the collective allergic reaction to reality-- that has defined the conservative media since the day Obama was inaugurated. Faced with the prospect of a second term by a president they had endlessly condemned as an enemy of the state (and much, much worse), the right-wing media embraced pure campaign denial and announced that Doomsday awaited Obama on November 6:....

I think we can let Mitt's lies go on by, but we need to remind the FOXbots everyday for the next 4 that FOX lies had no effect upon the election.
