I have been involved in or started 5 businesses since Obama was first elected and I haven't noticed anything other than going to monthly fed tax "contributions" instead of quarterly and that actually married up better with my cash flow structure.

You must be a liberal. All liberals are racist. Democrats founded the KKK.

Democrats do everything for political gain.

Democrats "fairness" is to destroy the minorities and they believe them thanks to the liberal lying abusive reporting media.

<quoted text>WELL, CRACKER, HERE'S WHAT I THINK: I THINK WE WENT OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF 12 YEARS AGO WHEN GEORGE BUSH JUNIOR WAS SELECTED PRESIDENT. NONETHELESS, HERE'S THE FORMULA YOU..(BORINGLY, REPEATEDLY).. SEEK:

1. FIRST, THE MILITARY MUST BE TOTALLY DISBANDED. NOT JUST A FEW PARTS OF IT, THE WHOLE THING. TO REPLACE IT, STATES WILL BE ENTITLED TO MAINTAIN MILITIAS WHICH CAN BE ASSEMBLED WHENEVER SOMEBODY RIDES INTO TOWN ON HORSEBACK ANNOUNCING AN IMMINENT THREAT.

2. END ALL CURRENT "PREMEPTIVE" WARS AND DENY BENEFITS TO CONTRACTORS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO PROFITED FROM THEM.

3. DEFUND THE CIA AND NSA AND PRIVATIZE THEM.

4. FEDERAL TAX RATE, CORPORATE TAX RATE, CAPITAL GAINS RATE IS NOW 50% FROM THIS POINT FORWARD. STATES ARE FREE TO SET THEIR TAXES WHEREVER THEY WISH. THERE WILL BE NO EXEMPTIONS.

5. EACH FAMILY MAY PRODUCE OR ADOPT TWO CHILDREN, NO MORE.

6. THE ENERGY INDUSTRY, THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY, THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY WILL BE NATIONALIZED.

THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR ME, HOW'D I DO? I'M PRETTY SURE WE END UP WITH A SURPLUS AND THE ASSHOLES WILL ALL BE FLYING TO BELGIUM WHERE THEY WILL FIND ABOUT THE SAME THING, HAPPILY.
You lost because you forgot the spending problem.

Food stamps and welfare to ghetto liberal lazy democrats!!!

Your solution is therefore proven wrong!

Dave,
I see you're still having trouble connecting the dots.
The killing of Osama bin Laden would have been all but impossible without a massive military build-up in Afghanistan.
That hardware and intelligence gathering network was put in place long before the current ditherer-in-chief strolled onto the scene.
Don't make me take you apart again, Dave.

That's absurd. But it is to be expected coming from our resident moron bedpan changer.

A small team of Seals killed OBL in Pakistan.

What did all our forces in Afganistan have to do with it??

Nothing!!

The Afgan War was a failure because Bush blew it. He had a great chance to get OBL at Tora Bora, but blew it.

Bush's intel was a disaster. Bush was out of office almost 4 years, yet you stupidly want to give him credit for getting OBL??

You're even more ignorant than I thought.

Obama rebuilt the intel, and they found OBL. End of story.

You've run away from me frequently, even pleading for a truce.

Let's hear some of your 'take me apart' bullcrap concerning me.

I'll be waiting, you loser.

Al Qaeda Disbands; Says Job of Destroying U.S. Economy Now in Congress’s Hands

Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The international terror group known as Al Qaeda announced its dissolution today, saying that “our mission of destroying the American economy is now in the capable hands of the U.S. Congress.”

In an official statement published on the group’s website, the current leader of Al Qaeda said that Congress’s conduct during the so-called “fiscal-cliff” showdown convinced the terrorists that they had been outdone.


“We’ve been working overtime trying to come up with ways to terrorize the American people and wreck their economy,” said the statement from Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.“But even we couldn’t come up with something like this.”

“As terrorists, every now and then you have to step back and admire when someone else has beaten you at your own game,” he said.“This is one of those times.”

The Al Qaeda leader was fulsome in his praise for congressional leaders, saying,“We have made many scary videos in our time but none of them were as terrifying as Mitch McConnell.”

As for the future of Al Qaeda, the statement said that it would no longer be a terror network but would become “more of a social network,” offering reviews of new music, movies and video games.

In its first movie review, Al Qaeda gave the film “Zero Dark Thirty” two thumbs down.

Be patient young Flacko, that beer will be gone before you know it.

Chili sounds good___but ham too sounds good to me at this point, omelettes, sandwiches, with au gratin potatoes and finally tonight on homemade Hawaiian Pizzas (ham-pineapple) to honor the birthplace of our Commander in Chief.
