You two are quite the pair.

Really, tell me again how a story about getting professors paid more than they are supposed to by contract somehow relates to people paying higher tax rates?

Did you ever admit that those income taxes were indeed paid?

As if your little story was true. Computer records would show exactly how much they guy was paid. How could the university pay his withholding into his with holding account without it showing up on the accounting program?

If you are going to make up a story, at least do a better job of it.

That is not true. Just where in the hell you think unions get the funds they donate to democrat candidates? From their only source in income, members dues.

The unions cook the books so that they can claim that only a tiny portion of the dues money goes towards partisan political action.

You are not very consistent. Just a couple of posts back you were bitching about the paid holidays federal workers get, and complaining bout them being free loaders.
You are very ignorant.

Most teacher tenure acts were passed in the 1920s and 1930s, although the Massachusetts law dates to the 1880s.

All were long before unions had significant interest in public schools.

It was not until the mid 50's that most teachers had tenure protection. Teacher unions started long before that & were instrumental in getting that tenure.

Try to keep up.

I can remember that a change in the Governorship's party meant a mass changing of state employees.

OK Mr Professor. We now know that the following two events are way different.

1) You get a $10K bonus check & your employer pays you with holding

2) You get a $12.5K bonus and your employer pays $2.5K into your with holding & you get a check for $10K

A blue collar hick like me can't see the difference but then again, I'n not a professors of dumbfuckedness.

Which is why private citizens cannot take the law into their own hands unless their own lives are clearly threatened.

It might be better not to judge Zimmerman before he is tried. In you mind Zimmerman is guilty. After all Trayvon did beat his head into the pavement. Photos exist showing the bruising bleeding on the back of his head. If a jury convicts Zimmerman he should be sentenced just like anyone else.

Actually it's worse than that. ALL tax revenue that comes in during a given year now goes to SSI, Medicare, and Medicaid. Everything else that is spent is borrowed. EVERYTHING!

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.
Talk to ACORN - the Boy Messiah's longtime buddy - about winning elections. Talk to the Black Panthers who intimidate people at voting booths about winning elections. Talk to Racist Eric Holder who refused to stop it. Talk to the Boy Messiah about playing the Race Card regarding Racist Henry Louis Gates and Trayvon Thug Martin and amnesty for Mexican illegals and Free Food Stamps and cellphones for his 99% voting block. Talk to the Jerk-In-Chief who bent over to Muslim leaders, blamed the Benghazi murders on anti-islamic videos instead of on Islamic Terrorism and all the while pandering to American Arabs and bleeding heart Liberal media.

You have no room to lie any further, Dood. Stop and take a breath before your next lie causes you asphyxiation.

The failure of Republicans to deliver on their promise that tax cuts would be mostly self-financing is a large factor in the deterioration in our long-run fiscal outlook, and it is putting considerable pressure on programs such as Social Security. In fact, the Bush tax cuts can be thought of as a loan from the Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to be paid back with the revenues from higher economic growth, a loan that is presently in default.

To see this, recall that the government began intentionally collecting a surplus from the Social Security program beginning in 1983 in order to prefund the retirement needs of baby boomers. The idea was to run a surplus for several decades while the baby-boomers were still working to get ready for the deficit years the system would experience after they retired.

The revenue from Social Security over and above what was needed to fund payouts reduced the overall government debt and allowed taxes to be lower than they could have been without these surplus funds. For example, the surplus that Bush inherited from the Clinton administration was largely due to the Social Security Trust Fund, and Bush argued it would be better to give this surplus to the private sector through tax cuts than to leave it in the hands of the government.

But it wasn’t better. The income of the wealthy grew as they pocketed the tax cuts, but workers experienced stagnant wages, a recession that hit working class households particularly hard, and intense pressure to cut important social programs.

Despite their failed promises, the Republican Party is asking that we extend the tax cuts for the wealthy, and some are even calling for further reductions in tax rates.

However, if the Republican Party is truly the party of business, then surely it will understand that no responsible financial institution would continue to invest in a business that failed meet, or even come close to the growth and revenue projections that justified the investment in the first place.
