By any measure the wealthiest Americans have amassed more of the nations treasure. At the same time the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is shrinking. This is a sign to rational thinkers that the wealthy need to contribute a larger share in reducing the deficit.
Hi fellow goober doob. Yes, when we were in our 60's back in the decade of greed when Clinton was president, we had tons of mergers, layoffs and CEO bonus growth that was sky high.

Remember the Marc Rich Pardon?

How about Vernon Jordan, Jr? He was also rich and a lawyer.

Hypocrute on, man...

You really should stop wearing those lugnuts from your Model T Ford for your ear earrings. The rust from inbetween your ears is corroding them. While you're at it, cut the hair growing out of your ears, Bozo.

Those rose colored glasses look pretty cool though. You will never lose them! Hypocrite.

... idiot.
I did start & have my own company.

Why didn't you?

I have also been President & CEO of a manufacturing company I did not own.

I've made those decisions.

My compensation was taxed as regular income as it should be.

so what? No one gives a rat's ass of your opinion of a particular newspaper.
I notice you offer nothing to refute their claims that Clinton never had a budget surplus?
Why?
Because you can't.
It's really fun to run into someone as stupid as you!!

No surpluses, eh?? No wonder your mother disowned you:

"Clinton presided over the longest period of peacetime economic expansion in American history. The Congressional Budget Office reported budget surpluses of $69 billion in 1998,$126 billion in 1999, and $236 billion in 2000, during the last three years of Clinton's presidency. At the end of his presidency, Clinton moved to New York and helped his wife win election to the U.S. Senate there.""

First, and foremost, police are civillians. We have a civillian government by design. Therefore, police, being part of that government, are no different than any other civillian. The Constitution does not define separate classes of civillians with separate rights for each.
Repeat after me: "Police are civillians, part of a Constitutionally-directed civillian government."
"All" police don't go through "exhaustive" training.
As for just one civillian, I have more "exhaustive" training than 99 percent of the police. And, I'm not the only one. Many people received the same "exhaustive" training as I.
So are airline pilots. I guess you think a person should be able to buy a license & fly jetliners across the country.

Are you saying all owners of assault-like rifles have extensive training????

Of curse not, so the idea of a few does not justify everyone toting an assault-like rifle with a 100 round clip.

We know that. We also know he came to the United States as "Barry Soetoro". We know he enrolled at Occidental College where he was a poor student as "Barry Soetoro".
We don't know what name he used when he enrolled for classes he never attended at Columbia. We don't know how Columbia validated that he was the same person who was a poor student and had the name "Barry Soetoro" at Occidental College, if he was using an alias. We don't know the name on the diploma he supposedly received from Columbia after never attending classes.
Then, presto-change-o, there is this Barack Obama that appears out of nowhere at Harvard.
The bottom line is, we don't even know the name of the prosident of the United States.
How do you know what his name is?
Obama did not attend Occidental as Barry Soetero. That is a blatant lie.

Obama was born with the name Barack Obama. A name he used to attend schools in Hawaii & the US.

To say otherwise is prof on just how uninformed you are.

Probably from inhaling too many diesel fumes sitting around oil drilling rigs waiting to examine the cuttings for show.

Speaking of which, I am sick & tired of my tax money subsidizing your salary. What's the matter, can't make it on our own???

Gut it...castrate it...cripple it...you can pick another word.
Automatic spending cuts called “budget sequestration” reduces defense spending by $500 billion over the next 10 years with $50 billion in cuts planned to take effect in January 2013 on top of almost $500 billion in long-term military cuts already proposed by President Obama. In total, nearly $1 trillion in cuts.
Radically reducing the size of the armed forces, targeting retirement benefits for veterans and higher health care fees and co-pays is not only a breach of contract but a major deterrent to recruitment.

By any measure the wealthiest Americans have amassed more of the nations treasure. At the same time the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is shrinking. This is a sign to rational thinkers that the wealthy need to contribute a larger share in reducing the deficit.
Republicans, conservative Republicans, wanted to discuss cuts in government spending.
There were no cuts in government spending proposed. Thus, there was nothing to discuss.
The end result is a continuing 1.3+ trillion dollar deficit over 10 years offset by 600 billion dollars in new taxes.
Let's calculate that out....
1.3 trillion dollars times 10 years minus 600 billion dollars equals.... just about doubling the already obscene debt.

So, the question remains:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Got an answer for that, dupe?

It seems that's the name he used at Occidental Colledge to apply for the Fulbright grant set aside solely for foreign nationals, dupe.
In fact, we know the people in his class actually knew him as "Barry", idiot.

So, back to the question:
When did the person we know was "Barry Soetoro" at Occidental College become the person we know as "Barack Obama" today?

Obama lies, lies and lies some more, POS scumbag has no intention of cutting spending.
Obama won.

On healthcare.

On reelection.

On beating the TeaParty into the ground.

On making racists like look the hateful fools you are.

On beating McConnell and Boehner like the dumfcks they are.

On raising taxes on the rich.

He got Republicans to vote for something they haven't done in a generation, raise taxes.

I can see why you're angry, but bashing your face against the wall will only make you uglier, soon you'll look like Carol!!

And that's a dreadful thought.

Your side is on a four year losing streak that looks to get worse for you as Obama has his way with the Republiclowns.

I'm lovin' it!!
