<quoted text>So bottom line you don't want to pay any taxes but you want a 6 trillion dollar war on terror. Yep, you are a Republican.
Most of us already pay enough in taxes. The wealthy would pay even more than they already do if the Democrats would utter the words "tax reform", much less follow through.

So where's the spending cuts Obama keeps talking about in his "balanced approach"?

Somehow that never materializes. That's not even a little bit odd?

They also want to sweep under the rug the fact that democrats suppported this war - before they were against it - for political purposes.
Weasels stick together, I suppose.

You do realize that he just agreed with the Obama plan. A combination of spending cuts & revenue increases.
"real dumb"
president nobama has outlined hos plan very well. Immeadiate tax increases. After that act of theft takes place he will consider spending cuts. Yeah right. Cuts to the military will be okay, cuts to security of American's overseas can be cut, additional stealing from medicare is a go.
Gotta a question for you "real dumb" why should anyone pay a higher or lower tax rate than you do? You are envious of others success and want to penalize them?
You are dumb.

Really. You mean that we will never know what if? Wow, you are brilliant.
Gore would not have had the tax cuts.
Gore would have paid more attention to Hart Rudman. Who knows, could have stopped 9-11 as Hart Rudman pointed out our airport security weakness.
Gore never would have lied to go to war in Iraq.
That saved 4000 soldiers & trillions of dollars.
You Bush voters just can't handle the guilt that sits u[on your shoulders.
Who does this remind you of?

Did it change your gross income? You know, the money you actually earn before the government take their cut.

So, you are telling me that in my example, you would not have more money in your bank account.

Is that right?

Dummy Eman goes to the store to buy a new washer. He saw the one he wanted. The sticker said $400.00.

He went to pay for it & the clerk said, "Oh, these are 20% off today".

Did or did not that discount give Dummy Eman an extra $80.00?

So which alternative to the two sides of the aisle did you vote for in '12?
You mean 3 sides of the aisle - status QuObama, conservative Romney/Ryan or moderate Mitt? I consider most conservatives to be neurotic and in certain cases borderline sociopaths, but I might have gone for moderate Mitt if his religion wasn't looney-tunes and if his forays in venture capitalism didn't have such an abysmal track record for domestic job production.

It's absolutely amazing. You can tell them a million times that Bush didn't put the war on the books and it's as if their hearing just shuts down
Not anymore amazing than liberals being told democrats voted to give Bush permission to go into Iraq (seeing they wanted to remove him themselves back in 1998) and voted to fund that war before it became politically expedient to become weasels and it's as if their hearing just shuts down.

Didn't Republicans already propose to cut funding for security of our overseas personnel?

Aren't Republicans the ones wanting to cut entitlements?

Make up your mind.

lol! Yes, I know.

Just by using it.

Cons were caught off guard... they didn't know what to make of it or what to do... so they made fun of it. That's all they could think of at the time in their panic.

After all, what else could they do????
