Like the loss of the 2012 election is de'fault of the Tea Party.
Keep posting.
Tea Party wing Republican Party pushed out moderate Sen. Richard Lugar in Indiana and then ran Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock, who lost to the Democrat in a state Romney won. Tea Party candidate Todd Akins, of Missouri, imploded which bled into the race in North Dakota, giving Democrat Heidi Hietkamp a close win in a Republican state.
Romney ran this race with an anchor tied to his leg. That anchor is the Tea Party. They are the Democrats’ best weapon. If you don’t believe that, just look at the Senate races.
The Tea Party are amateurs who have made good choices like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, but have also made bad choices. The problem is not with the movement, but with the mechanics.

Patrick, you're boring everybody to death by repeating the same post.

Besides, it was obvious that the Muslim Brotherhood would win in Egypt, so Obama made a token play for democracy.
By the way, democracy is already dead in Egypt, before it ever had a chance. Remember that Hitler also won an election.

Anybody who owns shares in a mutual fund outside of a retirement plan pays capital gains taxes every year.
The fact that you have no investments means little.
Who owns stock outside a retirement account? Very few of those making under 250K.

The vast majority of capital gains taxes are paid by those making over 250K a year.

You are joking in your first sentence, right?

The US has dabbled in other country's governments for decades.

You claimed Obama put the Muslim Brotherhood in power. That was a liar. You can avoid that subject all you want but you said it & it was a lie.

If you say "high risk" equals "black", then you are the racist.
"High risk" means high probability of default.

170 million rich people dave?
actually you missed my mistake...
around a 100 million folks file a tax return annually...
so that means 60 million people are counting on the stock market for some kind of return.....
About IRAs. So if all the non-ira type investors (me, included) pull their cash out of the SAME stock market that the laughable lovable IRA'ers are in it won't cause 'any problems'? Is that what you are saying RealDave?
You are a liar.

Over 80% of capital gains are from those with over $200k in taxable income.

Less than 13% of all tax returns show any capital gains income.
