You act like the poor don't pay taxes. Seems to me the real crybabies are those who don't want to lose their tax loopholes or have their dividends taxed like everyone else's income.
Fact: Prior to the Bush tax cuts in 2003, dividends were taxed at a higher rate than normal income and, guess what....we were FAR better off. Too bad we can't just rewind the clock and get rid of the Bush administration altogether.
Rather too bad we couldn't get rid of Clinton. I guess uneducated liberals, like yourself, forget that the stock market crashed in 1999 and 2000 and people lost half of their savings.
Dec. 2000. For weeks / months the world has been treated to one guess after another as to what great things Bill Clinton would do before he left office so that someone would remember him for something ....
other than sexual perversion and of course: Monica

And last week the world finally saw what the legacy of Bill Clinton
and Liberalism will be: An Epic stock market crash. In a mere 9 months the NASDAQ has lost 50 percent of its value.....
a record fall since the country was formed.

Granted that the vast majority -- made totally ignorant as another
part of the Clinton legacy -- Total Destruction of the Education
system for the insane concept of equality -- are still in total self denial that they made bad choices in choosing stocks and are still completely convinced that if they only do as bubblevision instructed: buy and hold forever they will be wealthy.....while of course in the real world instead of being millionaires they are facing poverty / loss of homes / stress beyond belief.

The reason President Bush lowered the capital gains is because he needed to save some of these people, he had to find a way to get people to invest back in the market to save the 401K's that Clinton had also said everyone should invest--which included labor unions, big companies, little companies, state governments and individuals. No one wanted to invest in America because of Bill Clinton. Frankly it is amazing that GW Bush held this country together as long he did after the Clinton. But hey, Clinton sold more weapons to other countries (on both sides) than any president in history. Clinton sold out the American people in more ways than one.

I have to note you do not comment on the red line in the sand that president nobama made. Not a dime's worth of arms should be sent to the area and not a single one of the detainees should be released. Nothing America does is going to change the behavour, they will continue to do what they have done for centuries, murder and maim, children and women at the top of their list.

It is the republicans: mcCain and Graham who are pushing to arm the rebels, the Saudis are also backing the rebels.

One more time you prove your self to be full of shit. Point out a single post where I have ignored or condoned violence. Just one. You must have one other wise you would not open your mouth and spew lies.
Ignore violence? Again you lie. I speak out often against abortion/murder, the taking of the life of innocents a practice you whole heartedely support. I am anti death penalty, I would much prefer those sentenced rot for 30 - 40 years in solitary confinement. Of course with a TV, but a TV with just two channels available, the weather channel so he/she will know how warm it is in his/her un air conditioned cell and Fox News.

Investing (not gambling) in the stock market is the only feasible way to build a sufficient retirement account. All pensions funds invest in equities. The old savings account at the town bank just doesn't cut it.
Are you really that stupid, or just a government employee.
OK, that was redundant.
She is both, stupid and a retired government employee. She has been saying that people who are invested in the stock market are gamblers for years. Go ahead tell the Equity market is the same as the stock market--I dare you:)

and O'bama and Kerry--all liberals. It is a proxy war with Russia. How stupid can those democrats be? Bill Clinton stated something had to be done last week--is O'bama doing something now because of Clinton. We should have stayed out of the mess. Kerry is an idiot traveling all over the moslems countries begging to negotiate.

Government pension recipients don't give a damn, because if their pension fund crashes, the government just increases taxes to fund the deficit.

Private businesses don't care either, just ask Mittens, venture capitalist.
They just let US taxpayers foot the bill for their employees' pension plans when they run a company into the ground.

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters)- U.S. lawmakers on Sunday said former national security contractor Edward Snowden's reported flight to Russia with a plan to flee onward to Cuba or Venezuela undermined his whistle blower claims and they slammed Moscow for helping a fugitive.
An aircraft thought to be carrying Snowden landed in Moscow on Sunday after Hong Kong let the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor leave the territory, despite Washington's efforts to extradite him to face espionage charges.
According to a source at Russia's Aeroflot airline, Snowden was traveling to Moscow and was planning to go to Venezuela via Cuba.
Democratic U.S. Senator Charles Schumer charged that Russian President Vladimir Putin likely knew and approved of Snowden's flight from Hong Kong to Russia. He said that will "have serious consequences" for a U.S.-Russian relationship already strained over Syria and human rights.

what is O'bama or Schumer going to do? draw another line and fart? No one believes or are they shaking in their boots because of O'bama-and certainly you can't believe one guy is going to end relations between China or Russia. O'bama looks like a fool with his Schumer chest puffed out-Can't O'bama puff his own chest out BTW?

Obama has personally ordered the execution of other American citizens on far less evidence, so what is he waiting for?
Yeah
