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 ... Full Story

<quoted text> Yes they are. It has already stated. 2013 may see tax revenue at an all time low. This will further the debt and possible give us a third or fourth downgrade. That's the problem with libtards. They never factor in the laws of unintended consequences.
The budget and economic disaster coming in 2013 fits in with Obama's plan for the destruction of America and will just make Obama demand even higher taxes.

You the same dumb racist that works for WalMart and lives in Louisville, KY?? Who ran away from this thread months ago??

If so, explain why your employer pushes the employees to go on Medicaid and Food Stamps??

Seems WalMart is the biggest freeloader in America by not paying their employees living wages and forcing them onto the public dole.

Romney did not "support" rape candidates. He adamantly condemned both statements and completely distanced himself from them.
But you just explained why Obama won more than I did.
So what was Obama's "immigration stance"? Except all talk and no action as was specifically pointed out to the president in that Spanish television show interview.
Romney should have publicly demanded that Akin withdraw.

Homer can play the word game all he chooses, but the reality is that higher tax rates will hurt the economy.

Why would anyone harvest a profit in a stock when the government, federal and state, will take almost 50% of the profit? Better to wait for a more rational tax system.

Well, one thing's for sure.
If Flake says something will happen, you can be sure it's another of his crazy predictions.
More of his 'mark my words' stupidity.
Like 'all hell was gonna break loose' before the election.
Gas will be over $5 by Sept.
Or so many other unmemorable predictions, none of which ever came close to being true.

Why do corps care what the tax rate is on dividends, they aren't paying it.
Investors will adjust their strategies just as did they did when Bush lowered the rates.
You freakin morons act like no one ever got dividends or capital gains before 2001.
Dave, you are just too dense to understand, so why bother trying to explain.

Guys like you who own no stock, receive no dividends, and realize no capital gains are just bystanders who are not even participants in the economy.

So, just collect your government pension and have a nice life.

if the homeless voted, who do you think they'd have voted for? someone who redistributes fish caught by others or someone who wants to teach them how to fish?

The homeless plague- December 4, 2012

It hasn’t been a great week for the image of the city’s roving psychos.

The shoeless guy who was gifted with a pair of boots by a sympathetic cop has turned out to be a common chiseler with an apartment & a brace of taxpayer-funded benefits.

But it was a far worse week for NYers who are not roving psychos — in particular, a Queens man who was pushed to his death in front of a Q train by a maniac in the 47th St station.

& it was a frightening time for passengers on the # 6 train last Fri morning between 77th-68th sts. A nearly 6’ tall, white woman in a long off-white coat & densely matted hair (description provided as a public service) abruptly began spewing from mouth & nose. Her ghastly, interminable, long-range discharge (accompanied by cursing) chased riders into the next car the moment we reached the station. I couldn’t wait to get out of the subway at my final stop — ill-fated 47th-49th Street on the Q/N/R line.

But the 1st thing I saw on the sidewalk was a familiar outrage: hustlers hawking “just one penny” for the “homeless.”

3 yrs after cops broke up the phony “United Homeless Organization,” the thieves with their glass bottles are back in force — especially on on 7th Ave bet 48th & 50th.

The punks ply their trade within a few feet of an NYPD observation tower. The cops watching the crowds presumably have better things to do than interrupt the scam taking place right below their noses.

The 2 7th Ave blocks — increasingly also home to CD peddlers who surround tourists & demand $$ if they so much as look at the wares — have begun to resemble the bad, old Times Square.

“Street homelessness” has dropped 26% since ‘05, according to the Dept of Homeless Services, which also boasts that the ratio of street homeless to the overall city population, 1 to 2,506, is among the nation’s lowest.

That’s little comfort to citizens who now fear the sidewalk insane more than conventional muggers. & to a guy who walks several miles every day & rides the subways & buses more than most city bureaucrats do, there are suddenly more terrifying bums out there than I’ve seen in years.

That “homeless” beggars are free to hassle passersby even where cops gather in force speaks to our institutional, political & cultural resistance to facing reality: Maybe we can’t lock them up, but we sure can stop sentimentalizing, romanticizing & enabling them.

My fellow passengers who fled the spewing lady might have been among those I see every day give money to panhandlers only slightly less gruesome — especially those who play “jazz” on an out-of-tune trumpet.

I know, I know: It sounds so fascistic, so lacking in compassion, to deny small change to the suffering. After all, aren’t the shelters as full as they can be & the city’s capacity to deal with the crisis limited by finite resources?

But our compassion ought to be for the vast majority of citizens whose daily routines are warped by deranged, diseased, often violent & occasionally homicidal “homeless” who live on the street for reasons having nothing to do with an “affordable” housing shortage.

Fact: Not all, but many more than a few, are on the street because they like it there &/or because they’re mad, alcoholic &/or drug-addicted. That we can’t lock them up or institutionalize them en masse doesn’t require us to make them into folk heroes.

Of course, their enablers are legion —“advocates,” socialistically inclined lawyers, & media pundits nostalgic for the crack-ridden city of 25 years ago. But it’s time to set aside ideological malarkey in favor of acknowledging truths that are obvious to everyone else.

Name those paying out 8 quarters of dividends now. They must have more faith in the economy than you & money to burn.

Why would people sit on their money. They will just seek other forms of investments.

These adjustments happened with every tax change.

If tax on dividends are of concern, investors will seek stock that pay fewer dividends but have higher growth.

Calm down Chicken Little.

You animal! You're not fit to clean that man's shoes! Why, I remember seeing him charge up San Juan hill carrying his wounded horse on his back and playing "Dixie" on a kazoo a small peasant child had given him in thanks for saving his baby sister from crocodiles... I suppose I've said too much already...
