huh?
maybe you should read that again.
no wonder you don't know what 'cite' is.
Sure. The nutjob killer couldn't buy a gun himself under existing law, so he found some stupid cow to buy one for him. How will background checks prevent that?

This is an opinion site. Go to the library if you want citations.

A new Surtax on Investment Income impacts individuals making more than $200,000 a year or couples with $250,000 or more. They must pay a new 3.8% levy on income from investments, possibly including profits from the sale of a home.
A new Medicare Tax adds to ObamaCare’s pain. These same high-earners must pay an additional .9% Medicare payroll tax on wages above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. This means the current 2.9% Medicare payroll tax will be increased to a total of 3.8%— a big hit especially for the self-employed.
Oh please. The poor self-empoed making over $250K will need to pay an additional .9% on the money they make over $250K Poor Poor Babies! How will they ever survive.

You neglect the Obamacare tax increases, which are larger than the income tax increases.
The tax increases and "fees" of Obamacare will cost all Americans dearly, libs are just too ignorant and stupid to see it. Of course the freeloaders[LIV, non producing dems} will continue as usual, food stamps, welfare, Obamaphones, section 8, school grants, etc.

hey Rush. what's up?
do any of you 'people' ever have an original thought?
though 'thought' is probably an overstatement.
Yes, gay marriage will be a disaster, for any children unfortunate enough to be "raised" by gays, especially men, and for the legal system, all original thoughts on my part.

I'll call Rush tomorrow and see if he agrees.

Meanwhile, you can continue to cruise your old middle school.

.9 %? If only we could get the freeloading fleabaggers to pay that much. But 0% is their rate.

It's guys like you that make me not want to leave any republicans alive. So let's go through it again for the exceptionally slow ones: 90% of the wealth in this country is controlled by (generously) 20% of its people. 1% of the people control 35% of the wealth. The bottom 40% control 1% of the nation's wealth. These figures have skewed toward top-end loading DRAMATICALLY over the last 25 years. IS it some kind of revelation to you clowns that when the lowest half of the population in terms of income actually LOSES real income to the highest half that they gradually fall into poverty and need? Do you have some kind of brain condition? You TOOK their money and now you want to blame them for giving it to you? It's like you're terminally retarded. You want to believe your own ridiculous calculus soooo badly that you can't even see what you've done? It's fucking unbelievable!
What is wrong with you? Seriously.

<quoted text>Steven Gallin wrote the piece based on an oral history that had been provided by AF Brig Gen NcHugh, Kennedy's aide, which was sealed for decades. Reviews are mixed and Gallin is widely known for elaborate half truths.
McHugh lied about several important facts__it was a very unusual and stressful time for him and all others involved__plenty of folks in CMA mode.
The 24 hrs piece is one in a History Channel series.
Everyone felt for the family of the fallen president. The Kennedys, John and Robert, were hands off as far as I was concerned because of the tremendous losses that family had suffered. John F. Kennedy would have actually been considered a conservative democrat with his economic policies in today's world. He had a lot of guts to go toe-to-toe with the Russians in the Cuban Missile Crisis.

But I knew virtually nothing about the intense hatred between Robert Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. Unless the events told in that documentary about his arrogance and treatment toward Johnson and the power struggle he created were nothing but exaggerations and falsehoods, it couldn't help but leave a bad taste in people's mouth.

Non-job? I've been working for the same company for 14 years, have to work every day to earn a paycheck and produce the expected amount of work or I will get fired.

That, my silly friend, is a real job.

Having worked full-time my entire adult life and even after my daughter was born - which technically means I had two jobs for 18 years - I was able to go part-time four or five years ago.

Don't like it? Tough.

By the way, what kind of non-job do you have?

all good things came to a screeching halt when bush gave tax cuts to wealthy and then proceeded to launch 2 wasteful wars without the funding.
ha...the employment sector nose-dived when ppl. stop feeding the inflationary spiral....which meant things got too damn expensive fo afford anymore. pure greed got us in trouble. nothing virtuous about the bush years.
According to Obama's own numbers $1.6 trillion went to people making under $250,000 each year. while people making over $250,000 got $600 billion. Want to make another dumbass statement?

Tax Returns: A Comprehensive Assessment of the Bush Administration's Record on Cutting Taxes
The very well-off have been big winners on two fronts. They secured enormous gains in income in the 1980s and 1990s. They now are receiving extremely large tax cuts as a result of the 2001 and 2003 tax-cut measures. The Congressional Budget Office provides the most comprehensive data available on recent changes in incomes and taxes for different income groups; these CBO data cover years from 1979 until 2001. Just-released CBO data show:
The average after-tax income of the top one percent of the population more than doubled over this period, rising from $294,300 in 1979 to $703,100 in 2001, an increase of $408,800.(CBO adjusted these figures for inflation and expressed them in 2001 dollars.) This represents an increase of 139 percent.
By contrast, the average after-tax income of the households that make up the middle fifth of the U.S. population rose $6,300, or 17 percent, during this period. And the average after-tax income of the poorest fifth of households rose $1,100, or only eight percent.
In combination with data on before-tax income from a study issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research, these CBO data indicate that before-tax income was more concentrated at the top of the income scale in 2001 than at any time in the previous 65 years (i.e., back to 1936), except for the years from 1997-2000.
The pattern continues in 2004. The President’s budget proposes to make permanent every tax-cut provision enacted in 2001 and 2003 that predominately benefits people with high incomes. But the budget fails to extend — and thus would let die after 2006 — the provision of the 2001 tax-cut law that encourages greater retirement saving by working families with incomes under $50,000.

again, someone attacks Obama despite the facts.
i'm about to the point of just starting to call everyone of you on that BS. all i get are suppositions and non-facts when i present facts. why is that Eman? you're one of the smart folks around here. enlighten my dumb 'liberal' ass please.
i'm more of a conservative than any one of you. real conservatives don't deal in BS. they see the truth, and then tell it like it is. go on over to The American Conservative to see how it really should be. become one of the enlightened ones'.
I have a question. Do you even read the crap you post? Because if you did (oh I forgot you're a libtard so you can comprehend what you read) you would see that, mostly, it refutes what you are trying to say.
