Since when is it our business to interfere in the internal politics of another country.
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.
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.

In actuality the UN will vote to establish Palestine to "non member observer status".

If you say "high risk" equals "black", then you are the racist.
"High risk" means high probability of default.
The banks said it, not me.

The banks lost that argument in court.

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 keep repeating something that is clearly incorrect.

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.

<quoted text> Actually they buy in the spring and sell in summer. Buy in the fall and sell in the winter. It's capital gains not income. Jeesh! No different than buying a house and selling it later for a profit. You are blinded by your ideology you can't see how you are going to hurt the very people you claim to want to help.
Evidently you are uninformed.

Captial Gains from investments held for less than a year are taxed as regular income.

Captial Income from investments held over a year is what is being discussed as far as returning to rates prior to the Bush tax cut or 20%.

Right now capital gains on investments held over a year are taxed at 15% if you are in the 25% bracket or more.

So, those people you are talking about are not affected by the long term capital gains taxes at all.
