In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler and the Nazis. Godwin's law often applied to threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches
"...Godwin's law itself can be abused as a distraction, diversion or even as censorship, fallaciously miscasting an opponent's argument as hyperbole when the comparisons made by the argument are actually appropriate."

President Obama seems to have a strategy to terminate all of the Bush tax cuts, not just those for “the rich,” as he has been saying since 2008. He is offering the Republicans exactly zero concessions in the “fiscal cliff” negotiations. No spending cuts, no entitlement reform, no compromise on the rates. It is entirely my way or the highway, and if the Republicans refuse to do everything exactly as he demands, he will let the Bush tax cuts expire entirely, for the middle class and working people as well as the upper incomes, and blame the Republicans for refusing to go along with him, and for the economic results.

Because so many major media institutions, like the New York Times and the Washington Post, have been so duplicitous and dishonest in discussing the Bush tax cuts, most Americans don’t know much about them, even though they have been living with them for 10 years or more now. Indeed, most of what they think they know is not true. But the American people will understand them better, when they see what life is like without them.

President Bush and his Congressional Republican majorities at the time cut taxes for everyone in the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. Indeed, they cut more for lower and middle income taxpayers than they did for “the rich,” as Obama calls the nation’s job creators, investors, and successful small businesses. The top tax rate was cut by only 13%, while the lowest rate was cut by one-third, 33%.

It doesn't take a genius.
Recall last year the brouhaha caused by Leftist teachers who refused to use Red markers when grading student papers because Red was to harsh a color and hurt the student's feelings and self-image.

This sort of Airhead Liberalism pervades ALL of academia today.

Most dems are sooooooo ignorant:

"According to official IRS data, the top 1% of income earners paid $84 billion more in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000 before the Bush tax cuts were passed, 23% more. The share of total federal income taxes paid by the top 1% rose from 37% in 2000, before the Bush tax cuts, to 40% in 2007, after the tax cuts.

In contrast, the bottom half of income earners paid $6 billion less in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000, a decline of 16%. The share of federal income taxes paid by the bottom 50% declined from 3.9% in 2000 to 2.9% in 2007."

doesn't gibe with the LSM/Obama narrative, does it?

Some dems on here just love "facts", I'm happy to do the research to get them their facts.

More Bush tax cuts ramifications:

"The Bush tax cuts also included a doubling of the child tax credit from $500 per child to $1,000 per child. Because of that, and the 33% cut in the bottom tax rate, nearly 8 million more people dropped off the federal income tax rolls entirely, paying zero federal income taxes. Indeed, under the Bush tax cuts, the bottom 40% of all income earners not only paid no federal income taxes, as a group on net. By 2009, they were being paid cash by the IRS equal to 10% of all federal income taxes."

Go ahead Obama, jump. Stop the wealth redistribution started under Bush's misguided compassionate conservatism.

Politics affects both winners and losers. You could be on the losing side the next time - as in times past.
I'd rather stick around a little while to see what happens if it's alright with you.
Winning is the easy part. Keeping the country afloat is the real test.
A person can become confused and think they are winning when they are actually losing.

A person can become a winner when they've lost.

Recall the video link I earlier posted about the 2004 Olympic runner who pulled a ham string and lost but was determined to finish the race before a roaring crowd supporting his effort?

He was a winner although he lost.

People like Lincoln Duncan are shallow enough that they will never see deeper than their local environment. They are Losers by any definition.

Sadly, the democrat authored mortgage meltdown negated so much of Bush's good work:

"The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.

Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%.

Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people".

Detroit City? One of America's more badass ones or?
Anyone who has even just casually followed Detroit Black politics has figuratively thrown up their hands and walked away decades ago. The Public School board is so corrupt that it's been taken over twice(at least) by the State only to slide back into corruption again over and over again.

Brother Kwami, anyone? Brother Coleman and his racist Krugerrand fiasco?

The rest of the State of Michigan taxpayers have been subsidizing Detroit forever from Home & Auto insurance to internet service. You name it and the outlying taxpayers are stuck with Detroit's bills. And yet they still claim racism to this day.

This governor, and many prior governors have bent over backward trying to help Detroit come into this century but to no avail. Corruption continues like some backward tribal banana republic.

Ann Coulter shocked Sean Hannity on Wednesday when she conceded that she thinks Republicans should let tax rates for the rich go up.
House Republicans are currently battling President Obama over whether or not to hike taxes on the top 2 percent of earners in the negotiations over the so-called "fiscal cliff."
After Coulter started to say that Republicans should concede on taxes on the very rich, Hannity wondered why the House didn't just pass a bill extending the Bush tax cuts for everyone.
"OK fine, let's do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it," she said. "It doesn't mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans."
"So are you saying that, for PR purposes, that they should give in to Obama on the tax rate?" Hannity asked.
"Not exactly, I--" Coulter said, before stopping herself and saying, "Well, yeah, I guess I am."
"You're saying capitulate to Obama?" Hannity stammered. "We don't have a revenue problem, Ann."
"We lost the election, Sean!" Coulter replied.

I have news. Bush was President until Jan of 2009.

We lost one out of every three manufacturing jobs under Bush.

We doubled the debt under Bush

Bush started with a balanced budget & his last budget was over a trillion in deficit.

As you brag about the gains right up until the house of cards collapsed, you ignore the false gains hidden in the housing bubble.

You act like the kid who climbs to the top fa tree yelling "look at me Look at me" right before he fell.

"real dumb"
Face the facts, George Bush is not a conservative. In 8 years he managed to increase the national debt by about 5 trillion. He is/was a piker, president nobama, he increased the debt by six trillion in 4 years, he will increase the debt by another 6 trillion or so in the next 4 years.
His answer, increase taxes on those who succeed, prosper and hire folks. I have ask you a number of times, but being the coward you are I will ask one more time, not expecting an answer, why should anyone pay a higher or lower Federal Income tax rate than you do. NO BS now, why are you special and deserve a lower tax rate than your fellow American's.

"Most believe zombies are relegated to the movies and video games, but Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn has highlighted the Department of Homeland Security’s participation in a staged “zombie apocalypse.”
According to Coburn’s most recent oversight report “Safety at Any Price: Assessing the Impact of Homeland Security Spending in U.S. Cities,” first responders were approved grant funds for a $1,000 entry fee to a week-long HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit in San Diego where the “marquee” event was a demonstration of a “zombie apocalypse.”
“[Strategic Operations] performed two shows on Halloween, which featured 40 actors dressed as zombies getting gunned down by a military tactical unit. Conference attendees were invited to watch the shows as part of their education in emergency response training.[HALO president Brad] Barker explained that,‘the idea is to challenge authorities as they respond to extreme medical situations where people become crazed and violent, creating widespread fear and disorder,’” the report reads.
Coburn was not pleased by the event or much of the waste detailed in his report."

Folks, if you vote Republican, if you voted for George W. Bush, if you vote for big government, this is where your money is spent because of the Neo Cons and their Big Government.

Time to wise up.

The George W. Bush administration consolidated many of these activities under the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a new cabinet department established as a result of the Homeland Security Act of 2002. However, much of the nation's homeland security activity remains outside of DHS; for example, the FBI and CIA are not part of the Department, and other executive departments such as the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services play a significant role in certain aspects of homeland security. Homeland security is coordinated at the White House by the Homeland Security Council, currently headed by John Brennan.
