The federal sales tax puts an exorbitant tax on everything. It will reduce the number of people visiting the US.
It's revenue neutral. The taxes that are already embedded in the price will go away.

Hey Dave, you never responded the other day when it was pointed out that you used the debt for one POTUS and the deficit for the other one and tried to compare them as being the same.

Then you are admitting Kerry, Biden, Hillary and Reid among the 111 other Democrats were simply incapable of discerning and understanding the same Intel everyone else had?

Only a few democrats claimed they had been lied to after the fact. The majority did not. That should tell you something.

That is correct, because that's all they're qualified to do.

A 21-year-old South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after she admitted killing her 20-year-old boyfriend, but she insists the whole thing was an accident.

Spartanburg police said that Erika Michelle Sutelman shot David Allen Moholland in the chest with a 12-gauge shotgun at an apartment where they were staying as guests at around 5:45 p.m. on Monday.

“Sutelman told officers she had a brown and black Mossburg 12-gauge shotgun in her hands as she and Moholland were playing around in the apartment,” WYFF reported.“Sutelman said she thought the safety was in the on position, so she pulled the trigger and the gun fired a single shot at Moholland.”

You didn't respond to the post. Here it is again for your convenient reference:
The Marine's sole function is to protect the president. Obviously, to any person connected to the real world, this sole function was severely impeded.
Perhaps Obama thinks he doesn't need Marines to protect him. I've got a simple solution. Don't deploy Marines to the White House.
This is nothing more than more evidence that Obama is an elitist with a medieval mentality that categorizes everyone outside of his ruling elite circle as peasants bound to the land.
Since Obama thinks money grows on trees, take some of that free money and hire some butlers.

Please stop, you have no idea what you are talking about. And before the rest of you rightwingers chime in I am not suggesting flodding wasn't a major cause of the damage, there was a ton of damage done due to the wind. No surprise you couldn't see that from 3,000 miles away, Homer lived through it as well as most of my family, friends and co-workers. So fck off.

2000 guns wet out but some recovered leaning about 1600 in Mexico. A small fraction of the guns crossing the border every year.
Kind of blows s hole into that pile of BS you just posted.
Connect the dots, dufus.
And, you are lying again. The 1600 number and 2000 number are estimates from two different sources. We have to use estimates because Obama is following the orders he is given and is obstructing any investigation. It is not the difference between the number sent and the number received.

Now, back to the truth:

Eric Holder goes to Mexico and discusses the operation with the Mexican government.
Eric Holder returns to Washington and immediately orders are given for the GPS tracking devices to not be used, and the guns not be intercepted before they enter Mexico.
The number of guns Eric Holder runs to the Mexican drug cartels increases to 2000.
... that kind of blows a hole in keel of your bullshit, doesn't it?

That is correct. I meant to say Obama has doubled the debt in four years that Bush made in eight years.

"Obama Is Responsible For “The Most Rapid Increase In The Debt Under Any U.S. President.”“The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch. The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion. It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.”(Mark Knoller,“National Debt Has Increased $4 Trillion Under Obama,” CBS News, 8/22/11)"

Ok. Let's try this again. Read the post, then respond to the statements in the post with something other than some retorical question about Obama being just as good of a president as Bush, for example.
The subject is the role of the Marine guard at the White House:
