Farm subsidies and food stamps both need to go away.
Galt won't be happy until there are no farmers and poor people starve to death. Why do rightwingers hate those in need?

I believe the requirement was punitive not work. Why do rightwingers have to twist and spin everything? I guess they figure if Fox News can do it and get away with it why can't they...

The US corporate tax rate is the highest in the world. Reduce the rate or suffer the consequences.
By the way, what do you think would happen if you decided to tax US corporations on foreign-made profits?
You ignore the VAT & the idea we have a pile of deductions other countries do not.

Foreign made profits are taxed.

Currently the foreign made profits are taxed in the countries where they were made. Then the US corporations owe the US the difference in the foreign rate & the US rate.

My God Galt, you didn't know this?

We used to get this tax in the year these profits were made.

This was changed to when the profits were repatriated.

This encourages corps to not bring home their overseas profits & instead invest then overseas.

Mitt Romney's plan would just make all foreign made profits tax free which would create an exodus of US jobs going overseas.
Whatever

Taliban Talks Could Depend on Detainees
These five prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, could be the key to whether the negotiations the United States has long sought with the Taliban are a success, or even take place. A Taliban spokesman in Qatar said Thursday that exchanging them for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, an American prisoner of war who has been held by militants since 2009, would be a way to “build bridges of confidence” to start broader peace talks.

Impossible to negotiate with the Taliban.

When the US leaves Afghanistan, the Taliban will massacre everybody associated with the government.

As for Afghan women, back to the Stone Age.

The Heat Delivers a Moment to Remember
The jump shot from LeBron James went into the net with 27.9 seconds left and, as soon as it did, he pumped his fist with a winner's look, a champion's look, as the noise you'd only heard once before shook AmericanAirlines Arena.
San Antonio's season was finally fading, and the Heat's star was rising, again, in this 95-88 win in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
They won with LeBron scoring 37 points. They won with Dwyane Wade answering questions with 23 points. They won with Shane Battier making six 3-point shots — as many shots as he'd made in the previous six Finals games.
They won against a San Antonio team full of deserving Hall of Famers, who kept matching the Heat shot for shot Thursday night, moment for moment, until LeBron's jumper gave a four-point cushion.
They won.
Nobody cares.

So...
Ayers is allowed to act like a terrorist if he doesn't intend anyone to get hurt?
Ayers can call Obama a war criminal and it is alright with you because it is his opinion?
Hmmm, what is your fascination with this man?
Ayers was charged with a crime. The charges were dropped due to illegal evidence gathering. So he was not allowed.

Setting a bomb is different than voicing an opinion. I realize that concept is way above your pay grade.

I have no fasciation. I only talk about him because you dumbass right whiners keep lying about him & I have to correct you.

Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth

i'll bet most of those counties are all white.
I'll bet you are wrong--look at Texas--all those illegals. Law breakers getting food stamps. Why?
And then Gwinnet county in GA--Today, Gwinnett has large populations of blacks, Hispanics and (perhaps most surprisingly) Asians--you know what happens when these populations take over the area? don't act stupid. Gwinnett County: 91 percent white in 1990; 44 percent white today.
So are illegals counted if they are illegal? just asking.

Silly,

Dave has refused repeatedly to answer the question of what legislation did the Dems pass to reform Fannie and Freddie prior to the Housing Bubble Burst.

It was well known that their was a problem for almost a decade. So put up Sonic, name ONE dem who voted for reform of Freddie and Fannie when these laws were purposed.
