The likes of Warren Buffett and Jeffrey Immelt just love to call for higher taxes while shoveling billions in Obama crony capital into their pockets.
Honestly, what business is it of yours the amount profited as long as he pays his taxes? Thats the way Obama's tax plan was suppose to work. He's not discouraging your economic groth he's just asking that the rich pay more being that they actuality can afford it. If they weren't paying taxes you'd betweaking shyt about that.

I've been to 50 states, can you list the other 7 Obama thinks we have, I'd like to see them this summer, thx.
I also want to talk to some of them there "cattle guards" Obama wanted to fire. lmao

But seriously, if only the cowardly, spineless democrats who voted to fund the Iraq war, would have voted their conscience instead of only being concerned with their next re election, likely we would have never went to Iraq, right?

Smart meters will eventually replace meter readers, they already have in several Florida communities. There's no legitimate reason to refuse one.
Hah, I see that some of the ladies of leisure at The Villages are protesting smart meters claiming them an invasion of privacy.
I'm pretty obsessive about privacy and I'd much rather have a smart meter than some guy snooping around pissing off my dog or peeping on my wife.

Sorry, Homer, forget to switch back to my regular topix name - at least until I have to switch it again, I mean.

Was trying to be funny for Tenzing's sake. He suggested middle-aged fussbudget. Guess it backfired.

WASHINGTON (AP)— Millions of smokers could be priced out of health insurance because of tobacco penalties in President Barack Obama's health care law, according to experts who are just now teasing out the potential impact of a little-noted provision in the massive legislation.
The Affordable Care Act — "Obamacare" to its detractors — allows health insurers to charge smokers buying individual policies up to 50 percent higher premiums starting next Jan. 1.
For a 55-year-old smoker, the penalty could reach nearly $4,250 a year. A 60-year-old could wind up paying nearly $5,100 on top of premiums.
Younger smokers could be charged lower penalties under rules proposed last fall by the Obama administration. But older smokers could face a heavy hit on their household budgets at a time in life when smoking-related illnesses tend to emerge.
Only 50%?

I hate it when the government restricts trade like that. It should be entirely up to the insurers.

I see an imbalance, just not the one that Obama and the left shreiks about daily.

WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...

allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:

• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.

Collected taxes :$794 billion

The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!

After this President has side step Congress it’s encouraging to see there a court that still believe in the Rule of Law!! These Judges gets a Thumb Up!!
President Barack Obama just suffered a humiliating defeat in federal court. A top federal appeals court has removed three presidential appointees from power, and invalidated all actions they’ve taken over the past twelve months!!

Republicans need to start by weeding out the religious right extremists such as Akin and Mourdoch and by dropping the issue of abortion from the platform and elsewhere.
As for minorities, the appeal should be based on economics and not on pandering. This may or may not work, but minorities (and the middle class) are suffering economically under the Obama Depression, which works only for the wealthy.
Change Obama Depression to Bush Depression and you and I are complete agreement.

For the "group" , how is a doctor killing a fetus/baby any different from a mugger killing it? You shouldn't be able to have it both ways, but of course dishonest libs do.
Well genius, I don't know many people who voluntarily have a mugger kill their child or perform an abortion.

You shouldn't be able to have it both ways, either you have a brain or you have your retarded opinions.

Hillary will be wheelchair-bound by 2021.
I corrected myself I meant 2017. I don't think she would or should do a second term at that age which as we can see by Reagan and his senility at that time was also not a wise decision.
