<quoted text> Spoken by a person who thinks there is only one government. My property taxes pay for those buses. My gas taxes pay for those roads. The defense of this country is in the constitution. You should read it sometime. ALL THIS OTHER BS IS NOT. Return to the constitution and put the power back in the hands of the people and the states. Cut out all the other bs.
How much of the road did your taxes actually buy? How many school buses? How much of your children's education will your taxes actually cover? What keeps your bank from just keeping your money? Who provides for that hospital down the street? I guess your tax dollars do all of that. Who patrols your neighborhood? When the next hurricane goes through & demolishes your house, who will come to help?

Maybe each & every entity should look it up & see if their services are covered in the Constitution before they provide that education, healthcare, transportation system, protection, & safe commerce system. All of these are supported by the federal government.

Absolutely! That's the reason I became an internet whore and went ahead with the sex-change operation. It's soooooo much better "down there" now that my hairy, smelly balls are gone. Now there's just a nest little incision concealing the flaps of skin which used to be my glans! I'm so happy! Now I can make $45/hr at home and after I give "Beaver" his cut I have enough for medicine in the wonderful health care system of ours! I'm soooo proud to be an American! I know you are too, so if you're healthy, call 1 888 IMA HORE!

Tonopah Solar is not a manufacturer but an in progress solar field/power plant being developed in the Nevada desert (Crescent Dunes) by Solar Reserve, NV power and others.
The point that
i am trying to stress is the poor and rich people do not pay taxes.
The needy that are poor should not pay taxes!However the greedy healthy poor that are able to work that are on welfare should be kicked out and the same for the rich!WE NEED FAIRTAX.ORG !!!!!!!!!!THE MIDDLE CLASS ARE PAYING MOST OF THE TAXES AND ARE NOT GETTING ANY BAIL OUTS,GETTING KICKED OUT OF THEIR HOMES FROM BANKS THAT GOT FREE BAIL OUT MONEY!

<quoted text>you voted for a man that hates this nation with a record of failure and decite. He should be removed from ofice in chains and tried for treason. Romney was not my first choice but honestly I would have voted for an empty orange juice can over the disgrace who currently occupies the whitehouse.
No, I voted for a MAN, yea a MAN (not a God though he looks more like it than the pictures of that whiteman that ya'll call jesus), but none the less a MAN that was best equipt to lead america into this new direction/era were heading into. Before the election I told everybody on topix that america was in transition. Barack Obama is just the 1st representation of that transition. America is the land of the free & through freedom breeds evolution. If your forefathers were futuristic enough to write the constitution, why they couldn't see that over time a nation of immigrants also breeds evolution (less white influence)? You keep blatantly skipping over the fact that the constitution was written by a bunch of slave owning racist in a time of slavery, so how can it not be biased in favor of the white race ? Obama speaks equality proven through his actions. This is why he's hell bent on taxing the rich whom ya'll call successful. I guess one would be successful in a 1 sided fight tilted towards the ancestors & leaders of the ugliest time in americas short history. If this nation will fall, it will be because of backdoor deals & greed of the elite (entitled white folk) that refuse to move out of the unequal times of the past. See bra, you cant just read history. You have to also have a grip on reality or you'll still be believing Christopher Columbus found America.

Operation has ended, guilty party has fessed up and apologized.

Because we are in the holiday season I have given this person a stern warning and a pass.

This new 'DA DEBIL' seems more apologetic and thoughtful than the older version 'THE DEBIL'.

Obama, Democrats on top again in latest poll on ‘fiscal cliff’ crisis

Another national poll is out Thursday that shows Democrats winning the battle of perception on the "fiscal cliff" crisis.

Fifty-three percent of registered voters told Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute that they believe the president and his party will make a "good-faith effort to cooperate with the Republicans" to avoid the fiscal cliff—the series of automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect Jan. 1. Thirty-eight percent of respondents disagreed with that statement.

Respondents by a wider margin—53 to 36 percent—said they trusted the president and Democrats more than Republicans to avoid the fiscal cliff.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.

Quinnipiac's findings follow a survey released this week by The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center that found Americans were more likely to blame Republicans than Democrats if Congress failed to reach a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.

Even with Fox News championing their every move Republicans still cannot get a break.

You prefer perverted DEBIL?

I'm afraid that means you can't be my topix BFF anymore.

And here I was just thinking it seems things are beginning to unravel more and more. Any resemblence of a once tightly woven moral fiber, I mean.

Homer likes presidents who support partial birth abortions and perverted posters.

What a very sad day.

The same people who voted for Obama are going to blame Republicans more than Democrats if we go over the cliff?

Shocking....

No winners or losers either. A politically correct no-no. Everybody wins. Nobody loses.

Nobody tries to win. Nobody cares if they lose.

Welcome to the new fundamentally transformed America.

Not really, Hitler never got more than 37% of the popular vote.
