Eric Cantor tweet:

President Obama wants to raise your taxes so he can pay people $1.2 million to play World of Warcraft. http://1.usa.gov/Y3NGOH

So, leaving aside Cantor's suggestion that the president wants to raise everyone's taxes—a standard Republican bullshit talking point—what exactly is Cantor mocking?


For some older adults, the online video game World of Warcraft (WoW) may provide more than just an opportunity for escapist adventure. Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that playing WoW actually boosted cognitive functioning for older adults – particularly those adults who had scored poorly on cognitive ability tests before playing the game.
Because there's nothing funnier than medical research on cognitive functioning in seniors. Well, maybe it could be even funnier if it offered insight into the treatment of Alzheimer's and dementia. That would be a laugh riot.
But hey, why let facts get in the way of juvenile tweets designed to mislead, eh, Eric?

<quoted text> Yeah put a water heater in your tank if you want to come home to fish soup! Heard to many stories about them malfunctioning. Maybe that's what Homer's company makes. Never used one, never will.
You truly are dumb, I have had the same water heater in my fish tank for 8 years, no issues. You amaze me with your ignorance.

I guess if the Liberal Media would actually do their job and ask the President a Tough Question I’m sure his response would have went like this!! First that question is ‘Above My Pay Grade’ I’ll refer that question to Valerie Jarrett…Next!!

Obama Inherits and Normalizes the Arrogance and Impunity of Nixon, Reagan and Both Bushes,When Republican presidents Nixon, Reagan and Bush waged secret wars based on mountains of lies and deceit, they were nearly impeached, but in each case Democrats in control of Congress could not pull the trigger. As a result, the Obama White House basks in a presidential culture of murderous arrogance and lawless impunity.

U.S. Gives Haiti the Gift of Prisons ,The United States, in it infinite kindness, is making Haiti a gift of two penal institutions. It's actually the most back-handed kind of charity. In order to keep Haiti a failed state, the occupiers deny the Haitian government funds for even the most basic functions of government: law and order.”

Former Republican chairman to GOP on sequester:'You're going to lose this'

That’s the biggest problem with the Republicans” on Capitol Hill, Gilmore, a former Virginia governor, said this morning over coffee and a ham-and-egg biscuit in Alexandria.“They think spending is the most important thing. It’s not.”
He says he has urged GOP leaders to back down and compromise to prevent the so-called sequester spending cuts from going through –“I keep telling them, you’re going to lose this”– and he has strong words for congressional leaders’ focus on deficit reduction as their primary economy goal.

“Above all things,” he says,“they shouldn’t be talking about debt and deficits. Because the left’s got an answer for them.”

That answer would be, raise taxes, which Gilmore says is the opposite of what the economy needs right now – and he’s quite critical of Democrats for pushing tax increases. But spending cuts won’t help the economy either, he says.

Despite warnings from guys like Gilmore, the Republicans are about to walk into a buzz saw, but they don't seem to have any clue. If it weren't going to be bad for the country, it would be pretty damn entertaining.

<quoted text>So heat the entire house to 74 instead of installing a water heater for the fish tank, you truly are a moron.
Actually I only heat the house a couple of degrees several time a day unless the girls leave the door open. I have geothermal HVAC that mostly just circulates the air in the house white bring the temp to a steady temperature. Really a quite efficient system. Three, even when ere was four, hardly ever get a bill over $200. Spring/fall averages about $70.

Have you ever seen a tank with jellyfish? There's a huge tank at hotel here with floating jellyfish with blue lighting. So cool to watch.

WASHINGTON -- Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.(D-Ill.) pleaded guilty in a federal courtroom Wednesday morning to using campaign funds to purchase an array of personal items including Bruce Lee memorabilia, a $43,000 Rolex watch and a mink cashmere cape.

He pleaded guilty to conspiracy before U.S. District Judge Robert L. Wilkins. His wife, Sandra Jackson, who resigned from her position on Chicago’s city council, is expected to plead guilty to filing false tax returns before the same judge on Wednesday afternoon.
