Now his mother is without a son, his siblings are without a brother, society is without a young man with a promising future. George Zimmerman should be tried for capital murder and multiple hate crimes and executed.

Are you really this obtuse? Your personal withholding is coming out of your gross income. In the case of the university professors cited, taxpayer/donor money pays their withholding FOR them.
Seriously you dont drive an automobile on public roads, do you? I agree with Electron; you need a special uniform so people can see you comng in advance. I recommend a bright orange wig with a giant red plastic nose (like bozo). Just make sure you tuck in that tiny elephant trunk of yours before the kids show up to the big top...
I get it.

If my employer gives me a check for $10K as a bonus and pays $2500 into my with holding, it is different from telling me my bonus is $12,500 & then deduct the with holding and handing me a check for $10k.

You people get more ridiculous every day.

I'm 34yrs old bra, played the game my entire life & not even knowing the young boi , I'm here to tell you that Trayvon Martin & no thug or gangsta! 1st of all when it's time to put in work the attire is all black everything, not a white hoody. 2nd of all, what gangsta you know that walks to the store for candy & a soda? 3rd, his father lives in the complex he was shot in & 4th, he wasn't the 1 toting a hammer. He wasn't the 1 that approached zimmerman after the police told him not to. You talking like it was justified. I guarantee he'll be in prison for a very long time. If not justice will be sought on the street. He got money on his head from florida up to New Jersey. He better hope they lock his ass up!

You think all these people are over $250K in yearly earnings?
We are talking about stock ownership outside of retirement accounts.

you know, the ones whose dividends & capital gains would be listed on their IRS forms.

My God you are dense.

I sad over 80% of the dividend taxes do not come from the middle class. Someone making $250k is above middle class.
I'm talking about people making over $150K.

I think its 85% of all reported dividends come from people making over $150k.

How do you manage to stay on the sidewalk? There are no guarantees in Life. Only probabilities.
Christmas is not celebrated by everyone and not as a religious event by many of those that do celebrate it. You are lost in a foggy world of idealism. You sound like the computer that can't make the distinction between "I love my dog", "I love my car", I love my country" or "I love mashed potatoes".
Because you are completely blind to the subtleties and distinctions in all aspects of Life, the world, your world, becomes simply B & W with 64 shades of grey. Color is a concept you will never conceive of and a world you will never enter into. Cold & alone you fail to relate.
I'm talking about making a mythical Christian event a paid Federal Holiday. If they do it for Christmas, than they should do it for Hannukka, Ramidan, Imbolc, Diwali, etc. In this diverse nation, the Federal government should recognise the holidays of all religeons or none at all.

So what chapter in the bible is the Christmas tree mentioned or Santa Claus? Get a clue .. Christmas is largely a secular holiday which is celebrated in unison with a Christian holiday assigned to this existing holiday in an attempt to compete with the pagan celebration Roman Saturnalia, a harvest festival that marked the winter solstice.

Geez do some research before demonstrating your ignorance

Over half U.S. citizens that qualify for Nutritional Assistance do not receive them because republicans have made the application process a government nightmare. Republicans don't care about America's starving children, they just care about getting reelected and getting richer. The Nutritional Assistance application process should be simplified. Maybe we should look at the very successful motor voter law and implement a simple process that can be done at the local DMV. No child in America deserves to starve so republicans can gain more power.

And why should the entire nation shut down because of this? You repubs complain about goverment overspending but you want all goverment employees to get a paid day off in the next breath. You can't have it both ways.

Without America's Labor Unions to keep giant corporatons like Walmart and Mcdonalds in check, giant corporations would be even more completely out of control more than they already are. There arent any unions in China and Mexico and Pakistan an look how they treat there workers.

Maybe if you had a job the national holiday would mean something to you. Instead its just another day loafing like the last.

<quoted text>I agree Bush didnt Handle Katrina right from the begining he took the set back and wait approach from the governors where Obama didnt, Obama was on the phone with the governors prior to Sandi's arrival to assure that Federal Assistance was ready and waiting for governor's when ready to request Federal Assistance.
Due to George Bush's ignorance the gulf coast still hasn't recovered from Katrina and never will. The northeast is very much back to normal except for a few small areas, thanks to President Obama's rapid response and take-charge handling of the situation. All the folks in the northeast are all saying they're glad Bush isn't in charge. He would have probobly let unqualified non-union scabs do the work and nothing would of gotten done yet.

To further your point, I have to assume that you are in favor of doing away with all national holidays.
