A dictator of what, a destroyed country?
Our way of live is slowly being killed by the growing gap between the wealthy & the poorer as we travel the road of a shrinking middle class.
That is not America. That's a third world country. That s what the Republicans want with their policies that consistently favor the wealthy while expecting the rest to pay for it.
Gotta protect those tax cuts for the wealthy while paying for it through reductions to the entitlements.
Dictators thrive in Third World countries, but live first class themselves. Sounds like Obama.

Not at all. The US pushed for a candidate other than the guy who won.
You are just making up sh*t.
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.

GOD Bless America, our Families, our troops, the Constitution and TERM LIMITS on the office of POTUS (the BEST prevention from the toxic plague of libuhrulTICS and their inane insanity to live in dictatorships and communism!)
Unfortunately, not a sure thing given Obama's disdain for the Constitution.

There are few middle class Americans who are effected by capital gains taxes. The vast majority is by those making over $250K.
The tax cut on capital gains heavily favored the wealthy.
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.

Less government.
Less government micromanaging, controlling, interfering and taking more of people's money to waste on all of the above.
That's the solution.

You predicted the fall of Assad within 24 hours at least six months ago. As long as Assad has the backing of Russia and Iran, he will survive.
Still closer/more accurate than anything you, Flack or any other rightwinger has predicted.

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