Reagan administration enacted 'redistribution' of wealth
Gergen also noted that the Reagan administration was responsible for enacting the Earned Income Tax Credit, an extremely successful redistribution program which returns money to the working poor.

You were almost right. It doesn't return money it gives money. Big difference. I never voted for Reagan by the way.

I'm afraid Carol lives in this fantasy world that is stuck in the 1950's a bit like that movie pleasantville. The harsh realities of life such as an expanding world population, the influence that has on the climate, gun control, financial rules and regs, plus a 1000 other political realities that cannot fit into her simplistic storybook outline of the world. She should ask how the people in Cyprus feel about losing 40% of their lifetime savings because some bankers got greedy. I'd say that self regulation worked real well, straight from the Wall st model from hell that did exactly the same thing.
You are wrong about that. I recommend you research it some more before posting misinformation.

Really moron? When's the last time kids had to go to school on Christmas? Hell, you don't even know how to spell it! You can't have religious displays in public schools because of the Constitution nitwit! The same goes for the Ten Commandments. There is no war on Easter except in delusional right wing minds like yours. An interesting side note is that both Christmas and Easter wee originally pagan feasts that were taken over by Christianity. The name Easter comes from the Germanic goddess Eostre. Christmas trees holly mistletoe, Easter eggs and the Easter bunny are all pagan symbols.
Gays and lesbians are only deviants and perverts to ignorant bigots like you. To the rest of us they're family members, friends and co workers who go to work every day, pay their taxes and live their lives like everyone else. They have the should get access to equal rights and protections under the law that everyone else does under the Fourteenth Amendment.

PDUPONT and other idiot democrats should be ex-communicated from politics and government, you allowing adult child molesters and homosexual pedophilia propaganda into the democratic fray, and PDUPONT not condoning the victimization of children, but only harboring, making excuses and contributing to the illegal activity and coverup of Massachusetts based NAMBLA.

While Reagan signed off on tax increases proposed by Congress, he rarey proposed tax increases himself.
Reagan publicly advocated closing tax "loopholes" and spoke often of tax fairness.
In Reagan's memoir, "An American Life" he wrote: "I made a deal with the congressional Democrats in 1982, agreeing to support a limited loophole-closing tax increase to raise more than $98.3 billion over three years in return for their agreement to cut spending by $280 billion during the same period; later the Democrats reneged on their pledge, and we never got those cuts."
Nothing's changed. We're still waiting for Obama and Democrats to follow through with their balanced approach of cutting spending after Republicans agreed to raise taxes.
Getting late. Night.
so what about the other 10 times he raised taxes?

He's right. Most people just know it's wrong. On both sides of the fence. Even in France.
The only argument necessary is that it will open up a Pandora's Box once marriage is redefined. It won't be long before polygamists will be demanding their right to marry multiple partners.
And who would we be to say no to them after saying yes to gay couples? Wouldn't polygamists have the right to the kind of lifestyle they choose too?
Or incestuous relationships, say, between cousins or other distant or even close relatives?
There are some things you just don't mess around with.
'what if'?

As attorney Paul Clement took to the Supreme Court to defend the Defense of Marriage Act on behalf of House Republicans, the lawmakers who hired him to do so stood silently by. It was the right thing to do, many Republican strategists say, to avoid distracting from the GOP’s core economic message.

But some members of the House Republican Conference thought their leaders should have done more to publicly stand behind an effort that is important to social conservatives.

“The silence was absolutely deafening and very disappointing to the millions of value voters that are in the party,” Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., told National Journal Daily.

'LIGHTS OUT ON FREE SPEECH

...in Britain, in Canada, in Australia (which is to say in some of the oldest free societies on earth and among the very few developed nations that did not succumb to the mid-20th century totalitarian fevers),

IT IS NOW RECEIVED WISDOM THAT STATE POWER IS REQUIRED TO “BALANCE” FREE SPEECH WITH COMPETING SOCIETAL INTERESTS AS DETERMINED BY REGULATORY BUREAUCRATS.

Socialists are supposed to think like this, but Britain’s hideously named “Royal Charter” is the triumphant “deal” of an ostensibly Conservative Prime Minister, and Canada’s grotesque Supreme Court decision was passed by a bench the majority of whom were appointed by another Conservative Prime Minister.

As the casual acceptance of the notion that “Parliament will hold the press to account” suggests, increasingly we live in a world in which such debates as take place do so within an ever more statist framing...

AND

'Behead All Those Who Insult Free Speech

Encouraged by President Obama’s and Secretary Clinton’s prostrations before the howling mob, the U.N.’s No. 2 honcho explains free speech:

Free speech is a “gift given to us by the [Universal] Declaration of Human Rights,” said Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Jan Eliasson during a press conference on October 2nd at UN headquarters in New York. It is “a privilege,” Eliasson said,“that we have, which in my view involves also the need for respect, the need to avoid provocations.”

Free speech is a gift given to us in 1948 by U.N. officials? Who knew?

The only appropriate response of free-born peoples to such a statement is:**** off,******. Free speech is not in the gift of minor Swedish timeserving hack bureaucrats, either to grant or withdraw.

Where is the “respect”, by the way, in “Behead the enemies of Islam”? Under the not so subtle evolution of “free speech” advanced by the likes of Obama and Eliasson, you’ll be shackled by “respect” and “the need to avoid provocations” but kindergartners will still be able to parade around the local park demanding “Behead all those who insult the Prophet.”

In the end, the one-way multiculturalism of craven squishes like Eliasson will destroy our world. Nuts to him and to the U.N.

Stephen Colbert opened Wednesday's "Colbert Report" with a declaration of something that disturbed him even more than what appears to be the imminent embrace of gay marriage by the Supreme Court: Bill O'Reilly's flip-flop on the issue, which he announced on his show Tuesday.

"I am shaken to the core," the faux conservative pundit said. "Last night, even Papa Bear let me down."

Colbert, who modeled his blustery "Colbert Report" character on O'Reilly, blasted the Fox News host for changing his mind about something he formerly denounced. "On gay marriage, Bill O'Reilly has flip-flopped. The gayest of all footwear."

But he was particularly offended that O'Reilly took a noncommittal stance about gay marriage, saying on "The O'Reilly Factor" that he does not "feel that strongly about it one way or the other."

This left Colbert aghast. "Bill O'Reilly doesn't feel that strongly about something? What's happening?! You're Bill O'Reilly! Read your f*cking contract!"

He rolled several clips of O'Reilly proclaiming his distaste for gay marriage over the years, including clips where O'Reilly compared gay marriage to "plural marriage" and the right to get married to ducks and goats.

But if O'Reilly is a man of consistent philosophy, Colbert's logic dictates, then his comparison of gay marriage to marrying a goat must have been a tacit endorsement of goat marriage, given his current feelings on gay marriage. And far be it from Stephen to get in the way of O'Reilly marrying a goat.

"This is about a man and a goat who want to share all the joys and sorrows of life together. And if they choose to make it a lifelong commitment together, they should honor it."
