Barack Obama, our next President

THOSE NITRO FUMES ARE ROTTING WHAT'S LEFT OF YOUR BRAIN!!

Same stupid question from the guy who's dumber than Dweeb!!
----------

The Department of the Treasury is an executive department and the treasury of the United States federal government. It was established by an Act of Congress in 1789 to manage government revenue.

""The basic functions of the Department of the Treasury mainly include:

Collecting taxes, duties and money paid to and due to the U.S.:

If this doesn't prove how confused half of the population is, nothing will.

Latest NBC/WSJ poll: 32% believe the country is headed in the right direction down 9 points since the election.

53% of Americans want the sequester cuts or even more cuts suggesting the public’s appetite for reducing spending.

And here’s the kicker.

Yet 29% agree “with most” of what Republicans in Congress have proposed versus 45% for Obama and 40% for congressional Democrats.

They can't have it both ways. The 51% can't want more cuts and still agree with Obama and Democrats.

Obama and Democrats have been telling the 51% that spending is not the problem.

Is it any wonder we're going in circles chasing our tails?

So why are the Republiclowns falling all over themselves to craft an Immigration Bill??

Now Republiclowns support gay marriage and immigration reform.

TRENTON, N.J.— Get ready for betting in your jammies, at work, from the kitchen table, or at the beach: New Jerseyans – and possibly many others – will soon be able to gamble over the Internet.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill Tuesday legalizing Internet gambling, hours after the state legislature passed a revised bill that made the changes he wanted. They included setting a 10-year trial period for online betting, and raising the taxes on the Atlantic City casinos' online winnings from 10 to 15 percent.
This was a critical decision, and one that I did not make lightly," Christie said. "But with the proper regulatory framework and safeguards that I insisted on including in the bill, I am confident that we are offering a responsible yet exciting option that will make Atlantic City more competitive while also bringing financial benefits to New Jersey as a whole."
The idea is to help the struggling casinos by attracting new gamblers who are not now visiting the casinos. The comps, like free hotel rooms, show tickets, meals or other freebies, would be accrued from online play, but would have to be redeemed in person at a casino, presumably enticing a player to spend more money while there.

Homer, it's very much the opposite republicans refuse to meet with the president. The president rarely meets with republicans.

He sends someone out with briefings but rarely asks for input. He doesn't take questions from the press and insulates himself from any potential criticism.

The republicans met him halfway with his "balanced approach". He reneged on his half of the bargain. Now he wants to raise taxes yet again without addressing spending cuts.

This is not acceptable leadership.

He has employed every scare tactic in the book to convince you the world is coming to an end on Friday to get his way.

This is not acceptable leadership. And you know it isn't.

Corporations urge Supreme Court to embrace gay marriage

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- More than 200 businesses will urge the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to strike down a federal law that restricts the definition of marriage to heterosexual unions.
Lawyers representing the businesses said they would file a brief in the case.
Companies including Microsoft Corp, Google Inc, Starbucks Corp and Pfizer Inc are among those that joined the brief. Others included Aetna Inc, Amazon.com , Inc and Citigroup Inc.
Thomson Reuters Corp is another signatory. The Reuters news agency is part of Thomson Reuters.
The companies want the Supreme Court to strike down a key provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Separately, lawyers representing another group of employers, including some of the same companies, had said already that they planned to file a brief on Thursday in a related case that questions a California law that bans gay marriage.
The two cases are to be argued before the Supreme Court on March 26 and 27.
In the brief filed on Wednesday, attorney Sabin Willett wrote that DOMA "requires that employers treat one employee differently from another, when each is married, and each marriage is equally lawful."
DOMA does not create any uniformity nationwide, Willett said, because 12 states in total either authorize same-sex marriage or recognize marriages that have been performed in other states.
That creates a burden for employers, particularly those who do business nationwide, he added.
Willett also wrote that the law forces companies to discriminate, sometimes in contravention of their own internal policies and local laws, when dealing with healthcare plans and other benefits.
"We must do all of this in states, counties and cities that prohibit workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and demand equal treatment of all married individuals," he added.
In briefs already filed in support of marriage being restricted to heterosexual unions, business interests have not been represented. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has not taken a stand on the issue.

----------

Another major hate issue is about to be taken away from the evangelical nitwits, as gay marriage is accepted in America and the Supremes will strike down right wing DOMA.

Social conservatives lose again!!

Gotta love it!!

What you fail to realize, as usual, is the job loses would have stopped without the stimulus once all the deadwood was cut loose. Most companies used the crisis to rid themselves of the slackers. Notice productivity went up.

It's 53% who want more cuts, not 51%.

So how is it possible only 29% agree with republicans who have tried to pass bill after bill of reasonable cuts and reforms while 40% agree with democrats who want to spend more?

How could so many people be this confused?

Can someone please explain this to me?

Tax loopholes like mortgage interest deductions, state and local tax deductions, charitable deductions, etc?

If you know of any tax loopholes for those middle class folks who Obama considers wealthy, as compared to his super-rich buddies, please let me know so I can take advantage.

Will not file yet pending your response.
