Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

He decided way back when with the Amboy Dukes he couldn't screw as many groupies if he were all phucked up so he stayed clean. Of course now he is an upstanding family man, pillar of the community.

You think the last three springs were bad wait till next year. 9.5% plus unemployment (really around 15%). More layoffs. Downward spiral. Point of no return.
Obama can increase tax rates all he wants, but those with the ability to do so will find a way to avoid paying.

The left always makes the mistake of assuming that their actions will not affect economic behavior, that the cows will meekly line up to be milked.

When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.

Not if the tax rate is 40%, which would be necessary to cover Obama spending.

Well, 65 million people disagree. The American people want healthcare. It is going to happen, no matter how much you all whine.
Next...
Let us go over that cliff, go for it.
The American people already have the best medical care in the world, at least until Obamacare denies that care.

We all understand that Obama prefers to go over the cliff, increasing taxes for everyone and slashing defense spending, a leftwing dream.

Let all the tax cuts expire and cut military spending, do everything the bi-partisan commission recommended.
Let's do this.
Anyone else with me on this?
Homer makes his bones as a certified Obamabot.

Truth is that the "fiscal cliff" would be better than a token tax increase combined with inflated spending.

Some validity here.
Wealthy can afford tax attorneys and avoid most taxes.

Ok, will do. I find it amazing that they're still kicking and screaming about the healthcare bill even though it is the law of the land now and will happen regardless. Our Gov. Scott has until Dec 15 to set up the exchanges and get the federal funds to implement Obamacares; he's still stalling. Who will suffer? The poor people.
Re the fiscal cliff; let it happen.
If the governor sets up the exchanges, then the taxpayers of Florida will suffer.

Obama voters are those shoppers that were waiting for the doors to open on Black Friday. They were rudely oblivious to their neighbors and didn't give a sh!t about trashing the store. Everyone else stood back and watched as they scrambled, tooth and nail, for the Black Light Special. No one could/can believe that these people, these 'bargain hunters' are the people actually running this country, it's almost too depressing to believe.

Yes I know. Saw a poster the other day that sums it up perfectly. Was a picture of a snake swallowing it's own tail. Below the picture it said "A nation Trying To Tax It's Way To Prosperity Yeah, It's That Kind Of Smart"

NAH, THA'S NOT TRUE, JOHN. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAIN'T EVEN AFFORD MEDICAL CARE OR AIN'T YOU BEEN PAYIN' ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU YOUSELF BEEN SAYIN'? WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GOT IS A TWO OR THREE TIERED MEDICAL SYSTEM BASED - SURPRISE, SURPRISE - ON MONEY AND GREED. IF YOU OLD AND SCARED AN' RICH THEY CAN HOOK YOU UP TO SOME MACHINES AN' MAYBE GIVE YOU A NEW HEART KEEP YOU GOIN' TIL YOU 80 OR 90. IF YOU OLD AND POOR YOU PRETTY MUCH DEAD.

THOSE DARN EUROPEAN SOCIALISTS GOT YOU BEAT, JOHN. IN FRANCE, WHEN A WOMAN HAS A BABY, SHE ENTITLED TO POST-PARTUM MEDICAL CARE TO, UM, "RETRAIN AN' REVITALIZE" HER VAGINA. SHOW ME THE MONEY, JOHN. SHOW DEBIL THE MONEY. PAR LEZ VOUS, JOHN?
