Barack Obama, our next President

It's affordable, all right. Affordable for those that won't pay a goddam dime for it.
Perhaps you missed it when your Congressman warned you about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year before the election. Come to think of it, I don't recall any member of Congress warning anyone about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year.
YOu will now commence paying the first of the several Obama taxes.
Look on the next receipt you get from, oh, say Walmart for a line item titled "Medical excise tax".
That's the national Obama sales tax.
Next, let's look at the deal between the Democrats and RINOs that increase the deductions and exemptions that allow that 47 percent of the population to continue mooching off the other half of the population. I'm betting the increased deductions and exemptions actually increased that 47 percent.
Perhaps we will have for the first time ever a situation where fully half the population is moochers.
Well, just who is supposed to make the economy work when half the population is f**k*ng moochers?
There's that Mitt Romney 47% again. So you really want to tax an 80 year old widow living on SS that can't pay for all her Meds now or the guy on his 3rd tour in Afghanistan? Both together make up more than 20% of the 47%.

"Suits: Law Schools Misrepresented Graduates’ Success In Finding Jobs"

CBS
"CHICAGO (CBS)— Three Chicago area law schools are being sued, on claims that they misrepresented the number of students who were hired for full-time jobs requiring a law degree after graduation.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bob Conway reports, the class action suits were brought by some graduates of the DePaul University Law School, the Chicago-Kent College of Law, and the John Marshall Law School"

Only an idiot believes Obama intended to increase the taxes on his moocher base.
There is NO such thing as a Federal Sales Tax. But I have got to hand it to all you fear mongers. That's a NEW good one. Right up there with Death Panels,Birthers and a UN take over.

It's time to split the Republican Party. Let the Democrats wearing a Republican costume join the party they belong to anyway. Turn the majority over to the Democrats and fight for the Constitution and sane government from a position where we know everyone on this side of the line in the sand is actually on the side of sanity in government and the Constitution.
What the Democrats want is a race war. They are disguising it and promoting it as a class war. The justification is class warfare, but the effectation will be a race war.
Those who promote this race war can be identified by looking at their party affiliation - Democrat. Those who oppose the concept of racial differentiation and promote the reality that a person is identified by what they do can align themselves with the TEA Party.
It's that simple.

Hey bro...take my SAT/ACT for me!

"...The changes will be applied nationwide, and will take effect in the fall, said Kathleen M. Rice, the district attorney in Nassau County. Her office charged 20 teenagers from five high schools last fall; 5 of the students were accused of taking tests for others and 15 were accused of paying them $500 to $3,600 to take the tests. Ms. Rice said up to 50 students might have been involved."

We shouldn't be where we are now no matter how bad the housing market crisis was four years ago. But considering Obama won on the issue of abortion and birth control pills, it's no wonder.
I agree with that. When I said "moochers", I didn't mean to imply they are all intentionally moochers. The system is being adjusted to increase the number of people relying on the government, and to disparage the idea of being self-reliant.
Many don't want to be moochers, but the system gathers them together with the intentional moochers.

only 47%?

Reagan would be disappointed.

and some similar hypocrisy.....

Just a few years ago, the tax deal pushed through Congress on Tuesday would have been a Republican fiscal fantasy, a sweeping bill that locks in virtually all of the Bush-era tax cuts, exempts almost all estates from taxation, and enshrines the former president’s credo that dividends and capital gains should be taxed equally and gently.

But times have changed, President George W. Bush is gone, and before the bill’s final passage late Tuesday, House Republican leaders struggled all day to quell a revolt among caucus members who threatened to blow up a hard-fought compromise that they could have easily framed as a victory. Many House Republicans seemed determined to put themselves in a position to be blamed for sending the nation’s economy into a potential tailspin under the weight of automatic tax increases and spending cuts.

Forbes and the WSJ must be part of the misinformation conspiracy. either that or you don't read much.

'Obamacare's Medical-Device Tax Kills Patients, Not Just Jobs

My colleague Robert Book has written a compelling analysis of Obamacare’s medical-device tax, which concludes that it will destroy about 14,000 and perhaps up to 47,100 jobs. The 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices is a savage blow to innovation. Note that this tax is on sales, not profits. It cuts into the top line, not the bottom line. If not repealed, this tax will start hitting medical-device makers on January 1, 2013.

Another colleague, Benjamin Zycher, has come at the tax from a different angle: In an analysis that concludes that the tax will lead to a reduction in research and development by about $2 billion every year, Zycher estimates how many patients will suffer early deaths because of the throttling of innovation.

Reviewing peer-reviewed literature on the relationship between medical technology and improvements in life expectancies, Zycher estimates that the knock-on effect of the tax will be about one million life-years lost annually...'

Fully agree.
I don't know how a race that died by the hundreds of thousands to free a race that wouldn't free itself with superior numbers can have anything to feel guilty about. Yet, they are indoctrinated to feel guilty, and a significant percentage are successfully programmed to accept this unjustified guilt.
There should be just one culture here, the American culture, which is identified by the belief in the universal appliction of the rights defined in our Constitution, augmented by the belief that the ultimate status one can achieve is the condition of self-reliance.
That was true not very long ago. It is far from being true today.

If individual rights are ensured universally, won't social justice be the automatic outcome?
Why doesn't everyone see this obvious fact?

Call it what you want clown, but when in a recession the top 2% is still making record profits, what else is it but class discrimination? As for racism, you linked class discrimination to racial discrimination & we see what side your heart lies. This country can go to hell in a hand basket just as long as you go with it. You & all your racist buddies! Ya'll couldn't win an election with your so called"dems dressed as reps", so what the hell you gonna do when they leave your party? Find another 100 reasons ya'll loss the next election. You can take that old ass constitution & wipe your old ass with it. Ain't no way a bunch of old racist white men in tights & wigs could've seen & predicted how thee world would & should operate over 200 years in the future. That whole concept is a crock of shyt!

CNN and ABC aren't exactly what you would call reputable sources. Each has been busted multiple times for blatantly lying, and many more times for misleading and hiding the truth.

Let's see what the taxable net was. I noticed that you didn't reference this.

How does the tax code allow a net profit to not be taxed?
Kindly explain that to us. What special exemptions were applied for these supposed cases you got from sources like CNN and ABC.

this was in ObamaCare too. if it hadn't been repealed, we would be writing about it right now and the usual Topix Obots would be here saying it isn't true. i guess there will be a lot of unintended consequences as more Americans wake up to the cost of "free" healthcare.

'Obama Signs 1099 Appeal Law

President Barack Obama signed into law, on April 14, a bill repealing expanded Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 reporting requirements.

The law repeals Section 9006 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 that would have required businesses to fill out 1099 forms for both goods and services valued at more than $600 starting in 2012. With the bill signed into law, businesses will now continue to have to fill out 1099 forms only for services of $600 or more in 2011 and beyond.

President Obama declared in his signing statement,“Small business owners are the engine of our economy and because Democrats and Republicans worked together, we can ensure they spend their time and resources creating jobs and growing their business, not filling out more paperwork.”

The “Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011” was introduced in the House of Representatives on Jan. 11. It passed the House on a vote of 314 to 112 on March 3, and passed the Senate on April 5 on a vote of 87 to 12.

Republicans and Democrats have disagreed on how to replace the nearly $22 billion in lost revenues that the Congressional Budget Office estimated would be generated by the expanded 1099 reporting requirements that would capture lost taxes on income that currently goes unreported.

The Senate voted 81 to 17 on Feb. 2 to repeal the expanded reporting requirements and offset it with spending cuts. The House version that President Obama signed into law eliminated some health-insurance tax credits passed last year in the health care reform.'

Speaking of those who have jobs and have to work for less money now...

Later.

(Can't help but wonder when the incentive to work begins to fizzle out for working Americans...I mean, besides the ones who have fizzled out already and are struggling to hold on because they have no choice.)

Can somebody please tell me things aren't this grim? And I'm just having a bad dream?

Because I always see the glass half full and I'm the one who believes hope springs eternal...so I'm hoping this is just a bad dream.
