You're just cuckoo if you don't think Obama isn't going to tax the you-know-what out of those making more than 250,000 and raising the dividend taxes won't affect the economy and, thus, all of us.
first of all carol, those tax cuts were rammed through by reconciliation by bush with no way to pay for them.

second, they were, at least on paper, designed to expire so restoring them to pre bush levels is not exactly a tax increase, it's a correction that was built into the deal...just like the payroll tax decrease was supposed to be temporary.

third, carol...we're talking about 3%...3% carol. you are defending to YOUR hilt, those anti patriots who won't give an inch to help the country back on it's feet after 8 years of disastrous policy. They couldn't possibly care less about you and your family, why then do you care sooooooooo much about them and there precious 3%?

P.S. my prediction is that the taxes will only go up on those making $500,000 or more....boo f*cking hoo

Well the DOW was down about 70 when the yahoos on capital hill came out and did their little song and dance about avoiding the cliff. Market shot up to positive to around 37. It will be interesting if it stays up or goes back down after lunch and towards the close. It might stay positive if they keep the loser off the television.

Research by leading social psychologist Roy Baumeister has found that the act of choosing depletes our brain’s ability to exercise self-control. We become less discerning and less disciplined when our brains are tired from having to make a large number of choices. This implies that when we embed ourselves within a context of binding commitments — that is to say, commitments we don’t have to think about honoring — that may free our minds to focus on other things. When we experience everything, or nearly everything, as contingent on choice, it exhausts us mentally, and makes us more undisciplined — and, in turn, makes our lives more chaotic. Chaos, in this sense, breeds chaos.

Perhaps you can explain why the wealthy were doing just fine during the Clinton era and before, when taxes were higher.
Bush cut taxes and crashed the economy, without producing 1/10th of th ejobs created by Clinton and higher taxes.
If the tax cuts were so good for the economy, why did we have the biggest financial crash since the Great Depression??
You're a poor racist cracka who is lied to and led by the likes of O'Reilly.
So if the MSM is so wrong, why did they call the election correctly??
If FAUX is so right, why did they get it completely wrong??
The evidence is there, for those who look at it without their right wingnut glasses on.
You're just a sore loser.
Obama won. Get over it!!
You've got ODD.

It's quite common among Rmoney supporters. The cure is a self-inflicted gunshot.

Yeah these Union Bosses are dining a winning while these unemployed workers are scrambling to find Work…Oops they can’t its Obama’s Economy!! Now that’s taken one for the Team!!!
Keep going pal, you're getting dumber by the post. The company was going down either way, they could no longer compete in/for the large grocery accounts and were selling their below par products to convenience stores and at their own retail/thrift stores. The thrift stores will be missed as they tended to be located in low income areas.

The actual union members (bakery workers) will be OK as the bakeries will reopen to produce regional and grocery brands. The non union store employees and delivery/sales personnel are fkd however.
