Taxation without representation, online edition

The Senate passed the Marketplace Fairness Act by a 69-27 vote on Monday, bringing us one step closer to state taxes on Internet commerce. The House has its own version of the bill, so there’s a pretty good chance it will reach the President’s desk, and of course you had Barack Obama at “new tax.” It will be a wonder if he can keep from trembling visibly with excitement when he signs the law. Republicans, on the other hand, might have a spot of trouble explaining their enthusiasm for a new tax to constituents.

You're right, sonicfilter. The 'family values','pro-business' politics was flushed down the toilet with Sanford's win over Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, a honest , respectable, successful local businesswoman from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Dave would never understand that these companies would have closed anyway, and instead at least were given a chance.
Dave prefers the Hostess-type of bankruptcy, where a bullying union drives a company down the drain.
Would they??? They could have survived or been bought out by a company that would not have bankrupted them.

Hostess already got at least two concessions from the Bakers union while handing out 6 figure salaries & bonuses to its executives.

Yes, Jimmy , Sanford wins and it's Springtime for adulterers and criminals. Mark Sanford was an adulterer, a criminal(broke into his ex-wife's home), committed malfeasance while Governor( ran off to screw his Argentina skank without informing his staff or the state legislature that he left the country then lied about it), and Sanford supported Mitt Romney who made tons of money off of his Bain Capital company SteriCycle (medical waste business) after Romneycare that offers free abortions on demand passed in Massachusetts. Yeah, right, Mark Sanford is as much a 'family values' guy as Newt 'the snake' Gingrich! LOL

It's okay for wealthy private entrepreneurs to 'harvest ' companies , but not the U S government ? Lincoln picked winners and losers in getting the Trans-Continental railroad built during the Civil War; Eisenhower picked winners and losers in getting the U S interstate highway system built during the Cold War, but a Black American President Obama can not do the same as a White-American President George W Bush in picking winners and losers in getting a U S renewable energy national infrastructure built to replace the aging , obsolescent fossil fuel energy regime?
It is not the government's job to pick winners and losers.

Another lazy mofo who'd rather spew the FOX line. Strickland was the DS special agent who secured Stevens and Smith in the safe room prior to the firebombing__he was one of several DS agents at the consulate that evening including two DS agents who had traveled from Tripoli with Stevens.

When someone says there were not American security on site__they are sadly misinformed or lying out their azz. Were there enough? How many would have been enough?

Will add that none of these so called whistleblowers were in Benghazi that evening.

Not at all. They can opt out & ay a fine to contribute to the system he relies on for back up.

I have an idea, let those people, over 21, opt out of having health insurance only if they have a tattoo saying Payment Required. If they collapse with a heat attack, the ambulance & emergency room does not treat them without payment in advance. When they run out of cash & their credit cards are maxed, out the door they go.

You're gettin' closer to that next mini-stroke that might be a maxi any time now, I see--not to worry you've already said on any number of occasions that you're all your dad's fault.
There are over 2000 firms who invest their own money - not taxpayer money - to turn businesses around.

It's called capitalism, creating jobs and success.

Now go back to memorizing your talking points for the day.

Stimulating Hypocrisy: 114 Lawmakers Block Recovery While Taking Credit For Its Success
http://thinkprogress.org/report/touting-recov...
FOX won't tell you that.
I just read it. To say TP is stretching on some of those is an understatement. Let's look at the first one

Minority Leader Boehner:“The stated intent of the so-called stimulus package was to create jobs, and certainly a $57 million slush-fund studying projects did nothing to achieve that goal. With Ohio’s unemployment rate the highest it’s been in 25 years, I’m pleased that federal officials stepped in to order Ohio to use all of its construction dollars for shovel-ready projects that will create much-needed jobs.”

How is that taking credit? In fact, it's repeating the "shovel ready" lie.

The bakery business is highly competitive and low margin. Union salaries and work rules just don't work.

Wow! Six-figure salaries! Just like cops and firemen.

Does Dave earn less than six figures?

Ted Cruz and the Politics of Imprudence
.... this episode touches on a deeper matter, which is the habit some on the right have of confusing principled convictions with self-destructive tactics. Rather than selectively picking the ground on which to fight, they seem to relish brinksmanship and conflict, even if they lose those confrontations legislatively and in the court of public opinion. But what makes this whole thing slightly bizarre is that in the process the self-styled purists accuse those who oppose them as being (in Cruz’s elegant description)“a bunch of squishes.”
It takes a person of unusual ideological brittleness to mock those who are intelligent enough not to join a lawmaker and his colleagues in their version of Pickett’s Charge.

can you just imagine the FOXbot uproar if it had been a liberal who'd committed adultery, while using taxpayer money to fund it, and he got reelected?
