Let’s say you are truly offended that 47 percent of Americans don’t pay income tax. Just complaining won’t fix the problem. All those freeloaders are still out there, dodging their responsibilities as red-blooded taxpaying Americans. 151.7 million Americans paid nothing in 2010. By comparison, 34.8 million tax filers paid no taxes in 1984. The rapid growth of Americans who don’t pay income taxes is particularly alarming for the fate of the American form of government, Beach and Tyrrell warned. Coupled with higher spending on government programs, it is already proving to be a major fiscal challenge.

First, it is wrong as a matter of civic morality for some people — let alone large numbers of people — to contribute nothing to the support of the is no reason to think that nonpayment of income taxes is turning millions of Americans liberal. The bad news is that worrying too much about this number will lead conservatives down an intellectual and political dead end.

Do people on Social Security pay income tax? Yes! Do military and retired military pay income tax? Yes!! Do Civil Service and retired Civil Service people pay income tax? Yes!! So where does that leave us when it comes to those pay no income tax what-so-ever?

In 1894 Democrat President Grover Cleveland and Democrat Controlled House and Senate enacted a flat rate Federal income tax, which was ruled unconstitutional the following year by the U.S. Supreme Court. Now the progressive income tax is almost as old as recorded history, and is the historic way by which people have been subjugated. Every tyrant in history has used it successfully, in one way or another. Karl Marx included it as one of his 10 rules in the communist Manifesto. The men who drafted our Constitution carefully prohibited a progressive income tax, but this was nullified in 1913 by which party?? I’m glad you asked. It was the Democratic controlled Congress under Democratic President Wilson. And who decided to Tax Social Security?? Why it was your beloved Democrats! Under Clinton & Gore, Democrats, Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed.
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ for us – you may be interested in the following:
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
A: The Democratic Party.
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
AND MY FAVORITE:
A: That’s right!
Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

BEIRUT -- President Bashar Assad called on Syrians to defend their country against Islamic extremists seeking to destroy the nation, dismissing any prospect of dialogue with the "murderous criminals" he says are behind the uprising even as he outlined his vision for a peaceful settlement to the civil war.

In a one-hour speech to the nation in which he appeared confident and relaxed, Assad struck a defiant tone, ignoring international demands for him to step down and saying he is ready to hold a dialogue – but only with those "who have not betrayed Syria."

He offered a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution but demanded regional and Western countries stop funding and arming rebels trying to overthrow him first.

Syria's opposition swiftly rejected the proposal. Those fighting to topple the regime, including rebels on the ground, have repeatedly said they will accept nothing less than the president's departure, dismissing any kind of settlement that leaves him in the picture.

"It is an excellent initiative that is only missing one crucial thing: His resignation," said Kamal Labwani, a veteran secular dissident and member of the opposition's Syrian National Coalition umbrella group.

WHAT? SATAN DON' HATE JEWS, WHY THERE WERE WHOLE YEARS THERE WHEN HE SLEPT WITH NUTHIN' ELSE! HERE WHAT SATAN "HATE:" SATAN HATE CAPITALIST SCUM WHO HIDE BEHIND NATIONALIST, EVEN QUASI-EMOTIONAL, FACADES OF "NATIONS" WHEN, IN FACT, ALL THEY CARE ANYTHING ABOUT IS THEMSELVES. "OH, THE POOR L'IL CHILDREN! WHO WILL HELP THE POOR L'IL CHILDREN?" SATAN CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE U.S. THOUGH THAT'S GETTING HARDER AND HARDER, NO DOUBT. SATAN DON' CHOOSE TO LIVE IN ISRAEL, THE SOURCE OF PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE ENTIRE WORLD'S TENSIONS AT THE MOMENT OUTSIDE OF CHINA AND PAKISTAN, TWO OTHER RIDICULOUS CARICATURES OF NATIONS WHICH ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A HUGE CLOT OF HUMANITY CRAMMED INTO TOO LITTLE SPACE.

BECAUSE SATAN CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE U.S. HE FIND IT INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO TOLERATE THE MEDDLING OF FOREIGN NATIONALS IN U.S. GOVERNMENT AND FISCAL POLICY. PARTICULARLY WHEN THE FOREIGN NATIONALS IN QUESTION TRUCK NO INTERFERENCE IN THEIR OWN NATIONAL POLICY. NOW, IF THE U.S. GOT TO SAY WHO WU GONNA BE THE DEFENSE MINISTER OF ISRAEL MAYBE IT'D BE A DIFFERENT MATTER BUT IT'S CLEARLY A ONE-WAY STREET GOIN' THE OTHER WAY.

ADDITIONALLY, SATAN HAVE A DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY WITH THE CONCEPT OF BILKING AMERICANS OUT OF THEIR MONEY SO'S IT CAN BE SENT OVER SEAS TO SUPPORT THE MOTHERLAND. HE SEE NO JUSTIFICATION FO' THIS AN' HE INTEND TO WORK TO SHUT IT DOWN, NO MATTER WHAT THE DESTINATION. IF YOU GOTTA RIGHT TO WORK HERE, THEN YOU GOT AN OBLIGATION TO SPEND HERE. KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY SO TO SPEAK.
NOW, THOSE ARE ALL FACTS, BUT HERE'S WHAT SATAN SUSPECTS IS TRUE: SATAN SUSPECTS THAT THE UNITED STATES AND ALLLLLLL ITS CITIZENS IS SIMPLY BECOMING A COLONIAL OUTPOST FOR GREEDY SOULS IN ISRAEL AND CHINA. THE WILLINGNESS OF AMERICAN BUSINESSES TO OUTSOURCE THEIR PRODUCTION AND "HAVEN" THEIR RESOURCES, MEANS THEY'RE NOT AMERICAN BUSINESSES ANY MORE IN REALITY, THEY JUST HAVE AMERICAN OWNERS. NOW SCROLL UP TO SEE THE THINGS SATAN HATES. NOW STAY TUNED TO WITNESS WHAT SATAN INTENDS TO DO ABOUT IT.

<quoted text>Moshx! Excellent! Gun Control.... Myths, Lies and downright stupidity!
On 20/20, ABC anchor John Stossel discussed the self-defensive benefits of gun ownership, debunking the myth that "gun control reduces crime."
The segment aired during 20/20's recurring series, "Myths, Lies & Downright Stupidity," based on Stossel's book of the same title.
Citing the recent Federal Appeals Court for DC ruling overturning Washington, D.C.'s ban on gun ownership, Stossel talked to the pro-gun plaintiff
in the case, Tom Palmer, and pointed out that the murder rate in D.C. increased after the city's gun ban:
"Since Washington's gun law passed, the murder rate actually increased, even while America's murder rate dropped.
It's because guns can also save lives, says Palmer, as one saved his years ago in California."
Great Video!!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =qyoLuTjguJAXX
You people are so dense. You can't have gun control in 1 state & not the rest. It's called the United States for a reason! Now if that gun ban were stretched across the country it would'nt be so hard to police because the central focus would be mainly on our borders. This is not rocket science, but i'll tell you what it is. Washington sucking up to big money! Those with money for the most part don't own guns for self defense, because they live in low populated areas with very low gun violence. Most murders committed in those demographics are in house. So who are they defending themselves from? Their own families, friends, ect, ect, ect! They shouldn't have a horse in this race, butt money talks & bullshit is just bullshit. One can only come to the conclusion that guns are just profitable business to them which ties into gangs, drugs, & violence. All profitable sources of investment income to the rich. If not, why are they fighting so hard for the right of something that has less than a 1% chance of happening?

The 53 Percent Are at the Trough, Too

The more general misimpression that Romney propagated in Boca Raton, Fla., is that nearly half of the “47 percent” are nonproductive parasites who take no “personal responsibility or care for their lives.” This just isn’t true. A majority of government spending benefits the middle class. The progressive Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that the bottom fifth of households received 32 cents of every dollar of federal benefits in 2010. What’s more, both whites and blacks benefit from government in proportion to their share of the overall population.

It would be great, as David Brooks writes, to have an argument about whether the distribution of these benefits is overly generous to the elderly and too stingy toward the young.(I’m assuming that when Romney promises to repeal Obama’s “raid” on Medicare, he believes today’s seniors are “entitled” to healthcare.) And it would be great, as economist Scott Sumner writes, if we could distinguish between “big government” and inefficient and behavior-distorting government.

But Mitt Romney, at least when he’s in front of a well-heeled audience from whom he’s trying to extract donations, doesn’t talk like that.

Mitt Romney — vaunted data junkie, technocrat, erstwhile “moderate progressive”!— sounds exactly like all the other half-informed blowhards who traffic in this stuff.
