But no matter how many times I ask, none of them can show me what they're talking about in the Constitution.
I wonder why?
You're being intentionally vague again. Must have something to do with with your aversion to clarity.

Keep trying....try this....

But policy began to change in August, when President Clinton sent in a Special Operations force to capture the warloard Aidid. This report looks at that decision and its consequences.....

again.....raise taxes. it's not like we don't have a tax revenue shortage or anything.
maybe we take all those folks that Republicans decided didn't need to pay taxes and make them pay something?
Raise taxes on whom?
If you taxed everyone making over 250 thousand dollars a year at 100 percent and made them destitute, you still wouldn't have enough money to pay for Obama's government.

So, the question remains:

Where are you going to get the money from to pay for Obama's government?

I understand the confusion what with all the BS that spews from your leaders but its actually the right that is more opposed to economic freedom than even the left. We can start with their love of protectionist tariffs in the early 20th Century that fueled the Great Depression and follow an uninterrupted thread of economic interventionism through Scott Walker's anti-1st Amendment union busting.
At heart you're a Nazi.
At heart, you're a Doofus.

Revising history to your liking and calling a Socialist a Libertarian are things that a Doofus would gladly participate in.

Republicans are clearly to blame

Republican leadership, too, has been forced into a corner, in part by Obama as well as the party’s own right wing, as members have failed to come to agreement over agreeing to some tax concessions for the rich in order to stave off what amounts to a wholesale middle class tax hike.

I'm talking to you Teabagger, I want to know why your Teabaggers added $2.6 trillion to the debt in just two years???

Don't you have any sense of accountability, of personal responsibility???

BTW, when I equated you with Carol's "petty, spiteful, misinformed mind" I only meant "misinformed" to apply to you.

Not 'til you explain how we pay for the debt institutionalized by the GOP. Spending in Obama's first term only increased 8% compared to Bush's 80%.

Now STFU you scurvy midget.

From EVERYBODY. Including the GOP's precious rich, and the Socialists' precious poor.

Read my lips: Every American Pays Taxes.

No exclusions, deductions, exemptions, loopholes, or breaks.

I wish it were possible for everyone to read this!
Bureacracy is the art of making the possible impossible.
INTERESTING! I know lots of folks don 't like Wal-Mart, but this is spot-on.
Wal-Mart vs. The Morons Who Ru(i)n Our Country!
1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.
2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick 's Day(March 17th) than Target sells all year.
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world 's largest private employer, and most speak English.
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores.(Earth 's population is 6.5 Billion.)
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying
the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire
the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
This should be read and understood by all Americans - Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years To get it right and it is broke.
b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it Right and it is broke.
c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right And it is broke.
d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the Poor" and they only want more.
e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years To get it right and they are broke.
f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right And it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our Throats while overspending our tax dollars.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will
end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected '(they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel. AND
I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness" !!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL 's wrong with all the people that run this country????
We 're "broke" & can 't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey ..And now Pakistan ..previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income ' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks.
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed ' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US ' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?
99% of people won't have the guts to forward this. I 'm one of the 1%-- I Just Did.
