Hi flack. Things are getting a little too crazy.
How crazy is it going to have to get before those lying at the bottom of the tank come up for air?

The wealth tax "may receive imputed rental income from multiple homes and major consumer durables such as automobiles, art collections or yachts, which the federal income tax misses altogether."
Sounds too much like Marx's first Manifesto plank: "Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose."
I'm just wondering how far this will go before some on the left see where this is really going.
Even the socialist-leaning French government isn't willing to go that far.
Uh oh, your rent's going up!

They found the perfect way to silence half the media. Put a Black guy in charge and no one questions the same policies that were practiced under W Bush. America is being fleeced for the 13th year and now most rational thought has been silenced by putting a Black stooge in the presidency. A white president would be getting slaughtered by this time. About two years from now the military spending will still be booming, the wealthy will still be wealthier,civil liberties will diminish and Obamas support will dry up when the liberal media begins to realize he is just another pitchman placed in the White House to keep labor cheap worldwide.

UNITED NATIONS — The Palestinians are certain to win U.N. recognition as a state Thursday but success could exact a high price: Israel and the United States warn it could delay hopes of achieving an independent Palestinian state through peace talks with Israel.

While I'm doing that, think about this.
In France, the net worth tax is called the "solidarity tax on wealth". In other countries, the tax is known as "Net Worth Tax" or just "Wealth Tax".
Some European countries have abandoned this kind of tax in the recent years: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Finland, Iceland and Luxembourg. In Belgium and Great Britain, no tax of this type has ever existed.
The United States Constitution prohibits any "direct tax" on personal holdings.
Does that even matter to you anymore? The Constitution, I mean?
This is not France; where are you getting your information anyway?

My suggestion to the American People for Obama’s next four years would be’ Bend Over and Tuck Your Head Between Your Legs and Kiss You’re A – Good Bye!!’ because if it Moves, Breath, or looks Alive’ Tax It’ that’s the Liberal/Democratic Way!!

The Mitt'ster at the W H today with the President of the US.
There are warm memories of Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford becoming close friends, and Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush bonding while leading the Haiti relief effort, but those are the exceptions.

Carol's Tea Party may be funded by the Democratic Party.

Tea Praty wing of the 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.

That's what I think too. We're going to have to hit rock bottom before looking up and realizing how deep the hole.

Some on the left will even get tired of being on the bottom. Just haven't gone deep enough yet.

Actually, no, it isn't.

But I can see how easily you miss the point and the bigger picture by that post.

Is this hole we're digging ever going to be too deep for you?

Interesting theory; but I doubt it. Richard Lugar is pretty old now anyway. What will Scott Brown in Mass do next? Go after John Kerrys Senate seat if President Obama appoints him to a cabinet position? I hope he keeps Kerry there and picks someone else.

I wasn't a big fan of his, that loudmouth rudeness kind of turns me off, but, I did admire his guts in defending his appointment of a Muslim judge. Shows he's not afraid to be real. Give credit where credit is due.
Speaking of loudmouths and Muslim judges, Egypt has tried, convicted and sentenced Pastor Terry Jones to death__in absentia of course.

That's really going to mess up his travel plans.

Why Conservatives Must Surrender on 'Redistribution'

....Eventually, if conservatives want to keep putting their stamp on American economic policy, they will have to give in to that reality that government must become more redistributive. Otherwise, the Republican Party will be left with an economic appeal to an affluent minority of the population and an ethnic appeal to a shrinking older white-voter base -- and that will win them fewer and fewer elections.
