I know, you Socialist/Democrats are soooooo compassionate. You cry a river and give a boatload-- of OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY. Increase taxes on the Evil Rich? SURE! Punish small businessmen who struggled to make their businesses succeed, working 60-80 hours/week? SURE!
Increase YOUR TAXES? HELL NO. Real big of you.
Problem you lefties never seem to grasp: if you remove the incentive to work, i. e. give people free stuff, then FEWER PEOPLE WORK. That's how your Lord Obama has managed to get over 40,000,000 people on foot stamps. That's how 25% of public school kids are getting free/reduced cost lunches-- while OBESITY IS EPIDEMIC!
An coworker of mine at work drives a nice Harley, drinks fine whiskey, has the latest smart phone and could lose 40 lbs. His three kids are on free lunches. According to a Wall Street Journal article two years ago, 60% of people deemed in "poverty" in the US have CABLE TV.
So don't give me that crap about how you lefties care so damned much and we conservatives are cold hearted bastards. You CREATE DEPENDENCY. You probably suckle at the gubbermint teat yourself, and being a liberal means you just want more goodies.
Grow up.
Seeing all the moochers getting fwee UNEARNED stuff, while others work their tails off, is enough for even the best of 'em to say "fk it"

It really does get sickening to watch.

"homo"
4+ years of president nobama. You will have to note is has not come with a viable solution to the problem. Lets see;
- The debt goes up by a trillion a year
- More American's on food stamps
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax
The above are what you kike about nobama's misadministration?

The Logic of CPAC

All you need to know about why Chris Christie, GOProud, or anyone else isn’t invited to CPAC is that the American Conservative Union’s annual conference is a pep rally. Cognitive dissonance—as opposed to mere cheer contests between different Republican 2016 contenders—would defeat the purpose. Years ago the conservative movement was a place for intense debate, but now that it’s won and triumphantly proclaims every Republican presidential nominee or congressional boss a conservative in good standing, the time for debate is over. Celebrate and march forward—and keep writing checks, please, so the socialists don’t take over.

That all sounds harsh, but movement conservatism is so tied in knots about imaginary menaces and battles never to be won that the appeal of a single weekend of solidarity without the usual sense of crisis should be obvious. CPAC is a place where Republicans are ready for their comeback, where the war on terror is being won (or will be once that comeback takes place), and where Donald Rumsfeld is a defender of the Constitution. Why begrudge a man his fantasy?

Read the Obamacare. It says if your income is below a certain level (a relatively high minimum), you are free. The rates go up just like income taxes, until most of the cost is put on the Good Ol' Evil Rich.
About half of the population will end up paying, the other half not at all. Why is this fair?
And as for health savings account, I'll be more specific. I have an investment portfolio that I set aside for emergencies. This concept is completely foreign to you as a leftist, because as soon as a bump in the road hits you stick your hand out for a freebie from the gubbermint. See, people used to RELY ON THEMSELVES and plan for things, like retirement and bad health. I can easily cover just about anything that hits me, and whatever arrives above that I have catastrophic insurance.
But unlike you, I'm not a parasite that expects others to provide for me. Does it bother you that you need me and my tax payments, but I don't need you whatsoever?
Um... yeah.. but what about those ranchers grazin' their cattle for free on Federal lands? Doesn't that sound a little odd? I mean, should I be payin' for that?

Liar. Obamacare is paid for.
The only way Ryan plans to save money from repealing it would be to keep parts of that revenue generation.
The savings from Medicare is tied to Obamacare. The hospitals would not agree to lower medicare payments without the 30 million new paying customers.
Besides,. Paul Ryan takes 700 billion out of Medicare in his plan - by making senior citizens pay more.

Why does the CAB project the nobamakare will lead to a trillion dollar in deficits in the first 10 years?

When the half that pays all the bills figures this out, the shit will hit the fan.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP)— Hamas is warning that if President Obama visits the Temple Mount it would be a “declaration of war” against the Islamic world.
Israel National News reports the terror group made the threat during a protest march at the religious site following riots on Friday.
Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called for a third intifada if Obama visits the contested religious site in Jerusalem’s Old City between Israelis and Muslims.
Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich believes the warning will lead to violence flaring up in the region ahead of the president’s visit.
“The Palestinians have not said the final word yet and we expect that there will be attempts to take advantage of the upcoming events, like the visit by Barack Obama, in order to continue the violence,” Aharonovich told Israel National News.
White House officials have said Obama doesn’t plan on visiting the Temple Mount during his trip.
Both Israelis and Muslims have claimed sovereignty over the Temple Mount since Israel liberated the site during the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel left the Waqf in charge of the compound.
Obama met with about 10 leaders of Arab American groups on Monday, encouraging the president to deliver a message of hope to the Palestinian people.
“[T]here are opportunities for him to say things that get into the public discourse about America’s commitment to them, about America’s understanding of their situation,” Jim Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, told The Associated Press.
Following the meeting, the White House said Obama told the group that his trip was not meant to resolve a specific policy issue, but that it was an opportunity for Obama to demonstrate U.S. commitment to the Palestinian people.
About time. The Israelis stole everything they hold. And the Retardicans cheer them on like they do for all injustices.

I like the way you Retardicans blame Clinton for 9-11.

Bush is warned by Tenet six weeks in advance, does nothing and the attack goes off as planned.

And the GOP response?

Wahhhhh! Clinton did it!

Did Clinton freeze Bush's brain for six weeks? Prove that and you have a case.
