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.
Guess you'll have to work another 10 hours a month

Al Jazeera English is basically made up from ex BBC guys. In fact the network was started after BBC closed its middle east Arabic network down around the time of the first gulf war. Al Jazerra english employed most of those correspondents and presenters. Right now they have more reporters in all countries than any other network in the world.
The fact that the US military didn't like them because they had reporters filing from these surgical strike sites during the gulf war that all western media was banned from or had no way of getting to.
This of course didn't look good when compared to the video game like images the pentagon released of smart bombs destroying targets full of bad guys. The pentagon controlled the media during the middle east conflicts because it had learn't a hard lesson from Vietnam and the news media's coverage of that. The fact that Bin Laden used them to file media releases too, was he knew it would not be doctored or trashed.
So as a news service it gives a view of stories all around the world not filtered or show bias such as the US networks do.
So it has a different style altogether, for instance say a horrific crime has been commited like the Indian rape case or the Ohio rape case for that matter. It will just report the story and not have a panel discussing how they will execute those charged with the crime. It's a totally different mindset. It's just news without political comment, panel discussions will be on issues of the day and possible outcomes. It works on BBC principles, which is rated as one of the best news services in the world. You can only benefit from that, not these BS opinions like Limbaugh & co. You may not like all the stories but its a true picture of the world as it is including both sides of the argument in the middle east.
I think it will be great. Similar to Canadian News, I read the online version sometimes

Really Waxturd/goober? You're already using my picture pretending to be me, now you want information to build a pretend a career. Do you think everyone is as stupid as you?
You are psychotic, lying, ignorant, coward. And, my bitch. Go fetch me some judge-its, puss.
Oh sure. I have no insecurities like you do old man. Provide a link to a single lie. When you say stuff like my bitch it just demonstrates how immature you are. I have government and experience in a nuclear and fossil energy corporation so I'm willing to bet you are well below my level professionally and educational. So midget, what was your working life like? Were you a professional name caller?

He did, he spouted some baseless nonsense about a subject he knows nothing about. The right wingers not only understood it but accepted it as gospel 'cause its what they want to hear.

You know this.

That's only really true for people like right wingers and, I don't know, perhaps people with Down's Syndrome ...

The truth is what you want to hear so what you want to hear must be the truth.

A curious phenomenon to those who can think.

Yup, if you want to know what's really going on in the ME, Africa, and S. Asia you go to al Jazeera. Their handlers told them a long time ago that AJE was a mouthpiece for terrorists because they showed the exact same videos that Fox, CNN, and MSNBC showed.

It doesn't have to make sense when you're talking about the terminally stupid.

Borrowing more money to rack up more debt to pay off the debt Congress racked up?
Somebody's head isn't on straight. President Obama's.
I need a liberal to explain this logic.
Its the same thing I've been telling you for years, you have to pay for the government you demanded instead of stealing from future generations. You've been more than happy to sit on your as s enjoying these tax cuts while demanding ever more from your government and deferring the cost to your daughter.

1. You're not smart enough to understand the link.
2. You're too lazy to click on it.

4. You're just a typical right wing moron.

You benefit from all of these things our government and others have done in the past, you live in your nice comfy house with your collection of electronic toys and your nice car that runs on reasonably priced gasoline and you have the nerve to come on here and criticize those who made it possible?
Sounds like ingratitude to me. Do you know anything about world history? Do you think the Ottoman empire was acquired by asking nicely?
So from this post I can assume that you accept with gratitude everything the Dems have to offer?
