Republican ‘Plan B’ heads for House vote

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— Defying a White House veto threat, House Republicans on Thursday are pressing forward with a vote on a bill to raise taxes on Americans earning more than $1 million a year, in a bid to increase pressure on President Barack Obama in fiscal-cliff negotiations.

Republican leaders are confident that they have the votes for passage, but the so-called “Plan B” tax bill and a related measure to replace cuts to defense spending would have a short life on Capitol Hill, Senate Democrats made clear on Thursday.

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/republican-p...

Isn't it always customary to start with plan A and then fall back on plan B? And if it is destined to fail then why not submit plan C?

Actually they should just submit plan Z as they'd have nowhere to go from there.

And, the people that scare the Democrats most aren't looking for defenseless children. In fact, they're not looking for anyone. They are just being prepared for someone who thinks the population of the United States needs to be subjects again.
You didn't join the lottery and tell us what month you think the Democrats will do something like they did when they invented fraudulent evidence to assassinate innocent Americans solely for the purpose of creating a propaganda message about gun control.
Which month do you think the Democrats will do this?
Let's review some history. Bill Clinton did it the month after his first inauguration.
So, I'm going to take February, 2013. March and April are good months. Why don't you take one of those months?
your list has been noted, and will be taken into account when the black helicopter shows up to take you to the FEMA camp in Wyoming/North Korea.

Record number of deaths caused by maniac televisions!

Legislate the safety back into your SONY asap!

BAN killer tv's today!

"...shows that 349 consumers (84 percent of them were children younger than age 9) were killed between 2000 and 2011, when TVs, furniture or appliances toppled over onto them. Last year (2011) had the highest one-year number of fatalities reported. The 41 recorded fatalities is an increase from 31 in 2010 and 27 in 2009. This total also may increase in future years as additional fatalities are reported."

President Barack Obama's job approval rating reached 56 percent in Thursday's edition of the Gallup daily tracking poll, the highest mark since October 13, 2009.

Thursday's release also showed 37 percent disapprove of Obama, the lowest it's been in Gallup's polling since the same October 2009 release.

Well to day is the last day of school so in the next 12 days may not be on here much. New life starts after the first of the year so won't be on much then either. But I will pop in from time to time. Anyway Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year if I don't make it back on. It has been a pleasure debating the issues and the laughs.

Someday when I'm bored out of my freaking mind you're gonna have to tell me how aliens fit into the biblical narrative.
It's 1 thing to be sarcastic & have history & fact behind you. It's another to be sarcastic & dumb, def, & blind... Oh did I mention ignorant? The bible does speak on aliens numerous times. It's evident you haven't read it. All through the torah. From God saying that humans are his greatest creation to a chariot of fire descending from the sky. In every religion, they speak of aliens in one form another. Most peoples problem with the biblical/alien thing is trying to differentiate fallen angels & aliens. Genesis 6;4 states not in these words that angels fell from heaven, & dicided to lay with women & in doing so had babies in which they call the nephilim. A race of giants by my understanding whom we call the greek gods. Point is read & research before you judge someone by their faiths & beliefs.

Huh, wonder if you can get some kind of premium for renting to sex offenders? We're renting our Boca house to a gay couple and they wrote us an offer letter several hundred a month over what we were going to list it for and they've never been late or anything. Our neighborhood seems to be going that route anyway. By the time we moved out there was a female couple next door and a male couple over the back fence. They made the best neighbors.
THAT'S WHY I LOVE GAY PEOPLE!!!
A sex offender in FLA could be a gal who got wasted and showed her tertz at bike week twenty years ago. Florida does a pizz poor job of writing laws which used to be OK because the popo didn't enforce most of them.

New day and with the sunshine law thing there is no place to run or hide anymore__so you better be good or your mug shot will live forever in Florida's hall of shame__even if a jury eventually finds you not guilty.

The details of his thoughts are the real point, aren't they? After all, guns don't kill people, people do. I never said that the American populace isn't desensitized through movies, television, social networking, music, video games. You somehow cling to the hypothesis that it is a sure certain absolute fail-proof bet that an armed security guard would have prevented or changed that day. Sadly, we'll never know - and by "we" I include you. What I do know is that he knew the school, and that even a deranged madman would tactically understand to take out the security guard first.
You are partially correct. He's dead, so we can't study him to determine what he most likely would have done.
However, we do have similar cases to compare. All such cases have the fact that they killer selected what they thought were defenseless victims. Of the many cases we have to reference, I am not aware of one case where the killer defeated armed security to commit their murders. I am aware of the usual case where when armed security arrives, they kill themselves. I think it is a logical conclusion that they will avoid armed security, and seek only defenseless victims.
When there is a case where someone defeats armed security to commit mass the murder of victims made defenseless by the killer's defeat of the armed security, then your argument will have credence. It has no credence when all like cases are the killer selecting what they think are defenseless victims. They kill themselves when another gun shows up.
Thus, if an armed guard were present, this would almost certainly never have happened.
