Well when you tune into a news network only telling you what you want to hear everyday, is that real news or propaganda. That's the question you should be asking yourself. Carol is a classic example of that, actively seeks out stories or mostly comments that re-enforce her point of view rather than having an open mind. Fox news was designed by Murdoch to target exactly that audience which had been ignored for the most part because it was a small voice of minorities the other networks did not give credence too. However that has consequences and Tea party was one of them which may have appeared anyway after an election of the first black president. However Fox gave them oxygen, way more than they deserved which led to the loser congress you have today. Totally functionless leaving the bulk of the population without any real government.
On the other hand, ABC, NBC, and CBS are little more than press agents for Obama.

And MSNBC is the house network for the Communist Party.

Carol is a decent, hard-working person, unlike much of the scum on your side.

I agree with you on this, it should be on the table. Originally, it should have been paid for with revenue from tax increases or closing loopholes or cuts in other programs. It shouldn't have been combined with tax CUTS.
Why not let each individual choose whether he wants this benefit in the future, and tax him as much as necessary if he elects for the program?

Sounds like a "pro-choice" position.

Has everyone gotten their first smaller paycheck yet?
$30 a week more in Federal Income and Social Security taxes adds up.
Don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather keep that $120 a month especially since this president has no intention of cutting one dime from government waste and spending but only increasing the deficit.
How is taxing working Americans' more going to fix the government spending even more?
Again, any liberal who can explain this would be helpful and appreciated.
You were never entitled to the lower Social Security tax. Unless, of course, you are willing to terminate the entire program.

This is where it is ok to contradict yourselves all the time. Telling everyone to go out, get a job and when they do and are successful at it why aren't they throwing their money away. lol
Al made his movie, you didn't like what he said in it, but the rest of the world did so too bad. Bill makes some pocket change on the speaking circuit and he supposed to turn into Mother Theresa, well maybe he likes touring the worlds golf circuits instead.
Point is, both men have brains and are in demand, Al Gore is either on the board of Apple and Google or doing consulting as an example. Bill Clinton has more intellect than 10 tea bagger congress on a good day. So you will never see them on the board of anything other than coal fracking, oil drilling and the NRA.
"Coal fracking"????????

This was a yes or no question:
Twenty-six (profitable) Fortune 500 companies haven't paid taxes in four years, are they freeloaders?
Even a moron like you had a 50-50 chance of getting it right and you screwed it up. Want to try again?
26 wealthy companies haven't paid taxes in 4 years.
hmmmmmm....
Were those companies paying taxes before Obama became president?
So, how about telling all of us which companies don't have to pay taxes while Obama is president.
Inquiring minds want to know.

I did research this myself:
Obama has intentionally and willfully lied to the American public, yet idiotic liberals stick by him:
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Rush and others were right, idiotic Topix libs were wrong, big surprise.
100% agreed
