RealDave…. Barack Obama famously promised the American people, "I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."
Last Friday, April 5, White House spokesman Jay Carney confirmed at a press briefing that Barack Obama’s budget would raise taxes on middle class Americans!! Dave are you calling Carney a Liar?
Obviously nothing is anywhere near passing, but what you are talking about is something Republicans want called chained CPI.

As usual, you try to play "gotcha" without a functioning brain.

The transcript from the exchange is as follows:

MAJOR GARRETT, CBS NEWS/NATIONAL JOURNAL:“A follow-up on Jim’s question — you do not and the White House does not dispute that if the chained CPI were put in — to be put into effect, it would raise taxes on middle-income Americans?”

JAY CARNEY: The chained CPI, which is a technical adjustment to how we measure the consumer price index —

GARRETT: But its practical effect would be —

CARNEY: Again —

GARRETT:— to raise taxes on —

MR. CARNEY: I’m not disputing that, but I’m saying that it is not the President’s ideal policy. It is in a letter from the Senate Minority Leader requesting that it be part of a negotiation deal.

GARRETT: All right, I’m just saying you don’t disagree, that those things happen?

CARNEY: Right, but Major, and —

GARRETT:— a tax increase?

CARNEY:— let’s be clear, as we’ve said all along, that the offer was on the table. The President made that offer because he was hopeful that we would see commensurate willingness to compromise from Republicans. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen that.

The President is engaged in conversations with Republicans in the Senate in particular but also in the House in an effort to find common ground, to see if there is a willingness to embrace the idea that we can reduce our deficits in a balanced way and continue to invest in our economy and middle-class families. And if there is, then we’ll be able to get something done.

GARRETT: And to critics who would say to this President, looking at this proposal, this is the last and possibly worst time — from their point of view — to raise taxes on the middle class, inflict benefit cuts on elderly on fixed incomes, even in the pursuit of deficit reduction, the President would say what?

CARNEY: The President would say that as part of a balanced approach that asks the wealthy and well-to-do and well-connected to contribute their fair share through tax reform, elimination of special tax breaks that average folks don’t get, that we can also include entitlement reforms that allow us to achieve deficit reduction in a balanced way and allow us to continue to invest in our economy in ways that will help it grow and create jobs.

HEY STUPID! Mainstream Mormons gave up polygamy over one hundred years ago. The breakaway sects that practice it force young and often underage girls to marry older men. That's hardly consensual and is totally irrelevant. If some group wants to practice consensual polygamy then let them bring their case to the courts.
You're an idiot!

He doesn't, the other ones mostly don't, either. We have to realize we are dealing with lesser beings here. If they weren't stupid, they wouldn't believe the things they do. They have created an alternate universe for themselves where President Obama is some kind of evil person with bad intentions, which is laughable. When you go from there, it's all downhill.

Maybe it's time we just point and laugh at them, which is all they deserve.

Changed my name, email address, location, everything. When I came to the second step, I had to either continue, skip or download something about receiving shopping email. When I tried to skip that, it stopped the process.

I tried to "finish signing up" but when instructed to link to my email address and then click on the information sent by topix to complete the process, I had to fill out some other information just to get into it. So I'm getting tired of the whole process.

My new name will probably get stolen too sooner or later. I'll start the whole thing over again then.

Not giving up though.

Newark - Three people were shot at a late night baby shower on April 8, 2013 bringing the total of deaths at baby showers in this city to 100 for April. Kamisha Jones, age 17, was the guest of honor at her third baby shower in two years, when two youths argued over who the father of the second baby was and shots rang out in the hallway. Thirty year old Grandmothers and teen baby daddies scattered as bullets flew. This followed a second night of hallway violence when rival gangs looked at each other the wrong way. Police collected bullet fragments among the chicken bones strewn into the elevator shaft. Neighbors said they never let their young children venture out past 2:00 a.m. on a weeknight due to the continuous violence.
What a shytty building you live in, must suck to be you. Do you wear a helmet?

Yes, we should always learn from fictional films - because dramatized history is "close enough."
Rather, we should have the serious history classes they have in other countries, and learn our place in the history of the world.
"Farewell, My Concubine" is a Chinese film with an all-Chinese cast directed by Chen Kaige that depicted the two main characters' lives in China from 1924, through the Japanese invasion until after Mao Tse-Tung's Cultural Revolution and ending in 1977.

"Camp 14: Total Control Zone" is a documentary by Marc Wiese weaving interviews with Shin Dong-hyuk who escaped from a North Korean labour camp when he was 20, a former camp guard and a member of the secret police with animated sequences depicting key moments in Shin's life.

History can be learned through many mediums. The characters in the Chinese film were fictional but the backdrop of history was accurate and educational.

The documentary of Shin Dong-hyuk was a factual documentary.

Both would open your eyes.

Everything is so backwards now, I can hardly manage to get myself up in the morning. I feel so tired, so ... almost as if I'm not really real anymore. So I've decided post as my name, except backwards. It just came to me last night, in a dream. Except I'm not sure if I was really asleep, because I had one of those sex things, where I wasn't almost 60 anymore, but maybe about 28. It was so real. Something just came into my room and stroked me all over, then slowly, gently, entered me until I felt as if I were lined in hot red velvet. Then, whoever it was just unloaded in there, and it felt like some kind of molten fire hose. Then it started to spurt all over me, all over my face, my breasts, all over the headboard.
Then I realized hubby was not only tossing and turning, but he was urinating all over me. I tried to wake him, but he punched me in my face, and I hurled all over my side of the bed.
I just wanted to give you a little information as to why I might want to change my name to the backwards spelling. It's all so mysterious, isn't it, this mind over matter thing? Anyway, I'm reading up on something called "sleep paralysis," but I dont' have any great faith in scientists, as you know. They always have some angle or other.
