Most blacks [Mc Dummies employees] are convicted felons and we don't let those types carry fire arms.

The sonicfillers of this world mistakenly place "winning" on a tall pedestal of righteousness high above the common cross-streets of Morality and Ethics. If their candidates win by lying to the common man-on-the-street, by racial pandering, subterfuge or media manipulation then all eyes become blinded to the darkness and celebration is the sole focus of the day.
If a professional wrestler surreptitiously injects his opponent with a disabling drug and thus wins, the sonicfillers will parade throughout the stadium in glee. They know what just happened but that's not important. What IS important is that their hero won the match! Like Floyd Landis, Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds and the long, long list of "winners" that titillate the likes of sonicfiller types.
Millions of sonicfillers are directly responsible for the constant downward ratcheting of civil behavior and discourse. But, hey, who cares? They're winning!
.
Mitt lied. Mitt pandered. Mitt's FOX based agenda failed to sway the rest of the media.

and now we have a few in this country who have decided that they want their state to withdraw from the union. because they couldn't pick a 'winner'.

want some cheese with that whine? but who really cares as long as you're losing.

When did the GOP become the whiners?

Any short history of the whining sweepstakes should start by noting that a tectonic shift is taking place when the candidates and handlers of one side begin asking, in some form, this question: Why are they being allowed to do to us what we've happily been doing to them since -- to choose a recent precedent to this partisan shift -- the swift boating of John Kerry? You see what's that led to? Why, these Obamians want to turn Romney's brilliant business career into an unpatriotic defect!

The current situation is noteworthy because the Democratic Party seemed to have the exclusive franchise on piteous bleating dating back to Richard Nixon's victory in 1968 and throughout the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush years. Truth be told, the Democrats managed to keep whining throughout most of the triumphant Bill Clinton years.

The game changer clearly has been Barack Obama, whose surprising taste for bloodying the noses of domestic critics and foreign adversaries seems to hark back to the last time the Democrats were unashamed political warriors.

so the answer to the question: November, 2008.

<quoted text>Christmas is a violation of the consitutional guarantee of separation of church and state. Making a religeous event a federal holiday is against consitutional law. It should be banned in all public places. That would knock giant corporations like Walmart profits down a notch or two and they would treat there employess more fairly. Walmart needs to be more higher regulated. The holidays are to celebrate the birth of Christ, not to increase Walmarts profits.

You obviously ignore that much of this held by the middle class is in retirement programs that are shielded from the investment taxes.

I am talking about stocks held outside of these programs.

Try to keep up.

You are dumb. Without approval you say? Who gives the approval? Union members. They approve contributions to candidates the like, almost all democrats. Why should a reublican union member support the democrat party.
Boy o boy, you are dumb. Do you ever think before you blather?
Come "real dumb" try, and just maybe you will post something that makes sense.

HEY STUPID! The responsibility for the levees was and is with the Army Corps of Engineers, a FEDERAL agency. You're right when you said that needed funds were diverted though, by Bush to finance his Iraq disaster and his tax cuts.
On June 8, 2004, Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for Jefferson Parish, Louisiana; told the Times-Picayune:ďIt appears that the money has been moved in the presidentís budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose thatís the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees canít be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us.Ē

What did Obama do differently than Bush? He was on the job in Washington, not vacationing you clueless twit!
You're not only a liar Carol, but a spectacularly incompetent one as well.

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.

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.
