Barack Obama, our next President

Say what ya'll want. You can't learn this in no classroom! If the system fails the family of that young boi, I guarantee justice is sought in the streets. The streets where topix talk is cheap as copper. I never said I would do anything to that man, but I know some hungry young boys that will give him exactly what he deserves &i won't feel sorry in the least bit. Ya'll want to treat this asshole like a victam. He started the confrontation with a boy not a man. That asshole deserves life in prison. Black panthers already put 20, thousand on his head.

The Journalís Tax Advice

William Kristol

The Wall Street Journal editors are unhappy about the present correlation of political forces. Who isn't? They're also, I gather, unhappy about "Beltway sages" who, facing the fact that the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of this year, have suggested Republicans accept a modest increase in tax rates for the wealthy while leading the charge to keep taxes from rising for 98 percent of the American people.

It would be great if the Journal editors had a better idea of what Republicans could do. They don't.[....]

If we go over the cliff, there won't be damage to Obama's chances of second-term success. Quite the contrary. What Republicans will have done is to make Democrats the party of tax cuts and Obama a president fighting for economic growth.

As I say, it won't happen. Most Republicans will go along soon after January 1 with what will now be the Democrats' tax cutting agenda. If the House Republicans now follow the Wall Street Journal editors over the cliff, the only effect, I'm afraid, will be to turn a manageable tactical retreat in December into a panicked strategic rout in January.

You're going to go back to your old lie that the federal government needed some kind of permission to go in to the affected areas. They didn't stupid. Once a federal emergency was declared no permission was needed. Where was Bush when Katrina was bearing down on the area? He was on one of his many vacations at his ranch. Where was President Obama? In Washington keeping tabs on developments and coordinating with the various governors.
Do some research. I did. That's how you get to the truth.

Look up Teaching the Levees. You'll find an extensive timeline
including:

September 2
*President Bush sends 10.5 billion request for emergency relief aid to Congress
*Military convoy arrives in New Orleans
*President Bush meets with Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin on Air Force One
*Blanco decides not to allow president to federalize relief efforts

(Make sure you read that last one again)

September 5 - Nagin criticizes Blancoís decision not to allow federalized relief effort

September 7
*10,000 people continue to resist orders for complete evacuation
*Governor Blanco criticizes Mayor Nagin for what she considers questionable and ineffective enforcement methods

...Let's not forget Blanco knew the levees could not withstand a hurricane 5 but the state government used that funding elsewhere.

...Or the parking lot full of school buses that weren't used because Nagin didn't plan far enough ahead to use them for evacuating.

The difference is Bush publicly took part of the blame. Blanco and Nagin kept blaming each other and Bush.

Kind of a synopsis and overview of the two parties.

Elections Matter: The President Will Get What He Wants
In fact, the president holds all the high cards in this game. If no deal is reached, all taxpayers will face an increase in income tax ratesófrom the Bush levels of 10 to 15 percent for the lowest earners, and from 35 to an effective level of 43 percent for the highest. Taxes on capital gains will rise from 15 to 20 percent, and on dividends from 15 to as high as 39.6 percent. These increases to be accompanied by an additional Obamacare tax of 3.8 percent on the investment income of high earners.
Thatís when the elastic ropes come in. The president immediately introduces a bill to lower tax rates to Bush levels on all but the high earners, and dares the Republicans to vote against it. Result: rates on high earners are up, rates on 98 percent of taxpayers are back where they started from. Campaign promise fulfilled, egalitarian ideology satisfied.

It will surely hit the fan if Obama and the Democrats eagerly take us over the cliff in having their temper tantrum to get their way.

In fact, that's what they're hoping. You should probably be aware that everyone's taxes are going up on January 1 if no agreement is reached and the only spending cuts are gutting defense spending.

Taxes will go up on EVERYONE. Look it up if you don't believe me.

So, what was the difference? You forgot to tell us.
Your original post claimed that professors were not paying income tax. Yet income taxes were paid.
Now you want to make it about hiding income from the public?
All income taxes were paid - all of them. Their fair share was paid.
WTF are you b*itching about here. No taxes were avoided at all.
You really aren't too smart.
STUPID FCK: the UNIVERSITY is paying taxes FOR them with monies above & beyond their compensation package. The Presidents are avoiding paying one thin DIME in taxes (whle advocating higher taxes on everyone else). If you cant see the difference, there is something seriously wrong with you.

So, if Republicans refuse a rate increase, its the Democrat's fault that no deal is reached.

Bill OíReilly Blames Gays For The ĎWar On Christmasí

MCGUIRK: The war on Christmas is very, very real, and if you ask me, in addition to some grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists it has to do ó at the root of it ó with two things ó abortion and the gay rights agenda, because Christianity is against those things. Itís subtle but thatís why itís so pronounced in recent years.

OíREILLY: Hundred percent agree. I absolutely agree 100 percent that the diminishment of Christianity is the target and Christmas is the vehicle because the secularists know the opposition to their agenda (legalized drugs is in that as well) comes primarily from the Judeo-Christian traditionalist people.

So, if the university gave him a $12,500 bonus. don't they pay $2500 into the Prof's withholding & give him a check for $10K?

Its a simple question.

If the university pays their with holding, it is considered compensation.

The income taxes are paid. The entire amount.

No one will ever know if that young boy was up to no good or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

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

Since this citizen chose to do otherwise, I agree he should be made an example.

the hypocrisy is starting to become a joke. the state of denial that one must live in to not be able to acknowledge the tantrum that conservatives have visited upon the majority for the last 4 years should be listed in the DSM as the FOXbot Syndrome.
