Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text> Absolutely 100% correct. That's why we need the Fair Tax.
Sure, that's what we need!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

A 30% sales tax!!

Your ignorance is like the universe, infinite!!

""Analysis
How to Make 30 Look Like 23

Americans for Fair Taxation offers the following plain-language interpretation of H.R. 25:
Americans for Fair Taxation: A 23-percent (of the tax-inclusive sales price) sales tax is imposed on all retail sales for personal consumption of new goods and services.
It is the parenthetical that is important, for it hides the real truth of the tax rate.

First consider the way in which sales tax is normally figured. A consumer good that carries a $100 price tag might be subject to a 5 percent sales tax. That means that the final bill for the item is $105. The 5 percent figure is the amount of tax that is charged on the original purchase price. But now suppose that instead of pricing the item at $100, the shop owner simply priced the item at $105, then sent $5 directly to the state. The $105 price would be a tax-inclusive sales price. But $5 is just 4.8 percent of $105. That 4.8 percent number, however, is relatively meaningless. You are still paying exactly the same 5 percent tax on the item.

The 23 percent number in H.R. 25 is the equivalent of the 4.8 percent in the previous example. To calculate the real rate of the sales tax, we have to determine the original purchase price of an item. We can begin with the same $100 item, keeping in mind that a price tag that reads $100 has sales tax already built in. If our tax rate is 23 percent of the tax-inclusive sales price, then of the $100 final price,$23 of those dollars will be for taxes, meaning that the original pre-tax price of the item is $77. To get $23 in taxes on a $77 item, one must impose a 30 percent tax. In other words, a 23 percent sales tax on the tax-inclusive sales price is equivalent to a 30 percent tax on the actual price of the item.

FairTax proponents object to the 30 percent number, claiming that critics use the larger number to frighten people. Americans for Fair Taxation claims that it uses the tax-inclusive number to make it easier to compare the FairTax to the income tax that it will replace (since most of us think of income tax rates on an inclusive basis). But we are not accustomed to thinking of sales taxes inclusively. The result is that many FairTax supporters (about 15 percent of those who wrote to us, for example) do not understand that the 23 percent figure is tax inclusive.

Our analysis of the FairTax used a figure of 34 percent as the basic exclusive tax rate. One e-mailer complained that our number was at least 10 percentage points “higher than [the FairTax] is” because we calculated it as an addition to retail prices. But our 34 percent number is not 10 percentage points higher than the legislation. A 34 percent exclusive number is equivalent to a 25 percent tax inclusive rate – only 2 percentage points higher than the FairTax bill. We think that, intentional or not, the use of the tax-inclusive 23 percent rate has misled a lot of FairTax proponents.""

In "old turds" universe all is well;
- Unemployment stuck on 8% officially, actually near 15%
- Household incomes declining
- More and more American's dependent upon food stamps
- Fewer and fewer American's paying Federal Income taxes
- Anemic GDP growth
- Sluggish home sales
- Value of American's homes down
Utopia in "old turd's" and president nobama's world.

Taking her quote out of context proves you to be just another vindictive but clueless nitwit!!

Much like the methhead from KY!! You two related?? Or did you just go to the same school for the intellectually challenged??

Sarah Palin put her tramp daughter up for public scorn.

One can only imagine the outrage and attacks from the right had Chelsea Clinton gotten knocked up!! Or Obama's daughters, one of whom is close to Bristol Palin's age when she got knocked up!!

Yet Palin the tramp claimed moral superiority, while her 15 yr old daughter was fcking Levi right under Sarah's nose!!

Little Sarah 'no sex before marriage'!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

We won't go into her son, who knocked up his girlfriend, married her and divorced her within a year.

Real moral examples, those trailer trash Palin's!!

Nice to see you losers still all in full umbrage over losint the election!!

Deal with it, nitwit!!

Here's the post you didn't answer again:

It's like dealing with my kids. I keep asking the same questions until they give me a goddam answer.
If they continually avoid answering the questions, I am certain that they are hiding a truth that they know will condemn them universally.
So, how about you Democrats not act like my kids when they are trying to hide something really bad from me.
Answer the questions.
Remind us...
When's the last time the Democrats in the Senate passed a budget?
In other words, when's the last time the Democrats even had a goddam plan for government?
And, just why would Obama order no support be given to the Americans in Benghazi while he watched Al Qaeda kill them on the live video feed?
Then, why would Obama lie for two weeks covering up an Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
And, why haven't the Democrats had a plan for government in four goddam years?
And, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And, why is Obama trying to disarm the American people not living in Democrat districts?
And, why do you constantly lie about Obama passing the bar and ever seeing the inside of a court room as a lawyer?
... and;
What does your psychiatrist say about your characteristic propensity to digress when answering a question proves you to be fullofshit?
I'm afraid we're going to have to add Avoidant Personality Disorder to your perseveration, schizophrenia and paranoia diagnosis.

Rubio and the Zombies
The State of the Union address was not, I’m sorry to say, very interesting. True, the president offered many good ideas. But we already know that almost none of those ideas will make it past a hostile House of Representatives.
On the other hand, the G.O.P. reply, delivered by Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, was both interesting and revelatory. And I mean that in the worst way. For Mr. Rubio is a rising star, to such an extent that Time magazine put him on its cover, calling him “The Republican Savior.” What we learned Tuesday, however, was that zombie economic ideas have eaten his brain.
In case you’re wondering, a zombie idea is a proposition that has been thoroughly refuted by analysis and evidence, and should be dead — but won’t stay dead because it serves a political purpose, appeals to prejudices, or both. The classic zombie idea in U.S. political discourse is the notion that tax cuts for the wealthy pay for themselves, but there are many more. And, as I said, when it comes to economics it appears that Mr. Rubio’s mind is zombie-infested.

You just make up lies, then ask others to disprove them.

If you haven't learned to use Google, there's not much we can do to help you.

If you're that stupid, quit wasting our time with your ignorance.

Everything you claim is a lie, yet you persist.

Most surveys put Obama in the top 20 of best presidents. I believe one has him as high as 15th so he could go even higher depending on his second term.

Here is your list of 10 worst presidents -

like some who ask rhetorical questions but want a non-rhetorical response whilst framing it as an all encompassing angry op-ed that no one should question as anything but factual?

and how's that been playing in the national political scene lately? even your own are starting to see the picture....

What I am finding is that among conservatives there is too much outrage, piss, and vinegar. It makes our ideas less effective. We have become humorless, angry opponents of the President instead of happy warriors selling better ideas. We are not even selling ideas.

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

Just how much ammunition do you think Obama needs?
Just the first procurement was 750 million rounds. That's enough to shoot every person in the country almost three times. Since, that procurement has been increased to 1.2 billion rounds.

Let's put that into a real-world perspective.
Two nations like France and Germany consumed about 70 million rounds of ammunition a year in the first world war.
Obama's first procurement was enough for France and Germany to fight a full-scale war for 10 years.

So, please tell us what the goddam plan is. Why the f**k does Obama need that much ammunition procured solely for domestic use?
