Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Until such time as the "wealthy" are taxed on their actual income rather than their earnings after the accounting for subsidies, credits and deductions, they will not pay their fair share.
As a reminder, Mitt Romney made $13.7 million and paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes, giving him an effective tax rate of 14.1%. No matter how you look at it, that is not "fair" taxation.
FACT: According to the Center for Budget and Policy Practices, the top 1% control 43% percent of the financial wealth in America. The wealthiest 400 Americans have the same combined wealth as the poorest half of Americans -- over 150 million people. The top 10% control 83% of the financial wealth in America. So, to be "fair" the top 1% should be paying 43% of Federal income taxes instead of 36.73%. And the top 10% should be paying 83% instead of 71%.
Eventually, the top The top 1 percent will learn that their income depends on how the other 99% live but, if history is any indication, it will be too late.
Oh, as far as 2007 earnings are concerned, thanks to the Bush tax cuts, the wealthiest 1% were able to take their Bush windfall and invest it in the stock market. "In 2007, the average household in the top 1 percent had an income of $1.3 million, up $88,800 from the prior year."
Wealth and income are two entirely different things.

Allen Iverson earned $10 million a year , but spent it as fast as he earned it and has nothing left.

On the other hand, the vast majority of "millionaires", those with a net worth of $1 million or more, never had more than modest middle class incomes.

Read "The Millionaire Next Door" and learn something.

The state had no evidence at the beginning and no evidence at the end.

Angela Corey had to lie to get an arrest warrant.

Trayvon managed to get to the age of 17 without getting in trouble with the law. Gold teeth and tattoos might very well be a sign of a typical teen at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High in Miami. You don't know. Yet, you chose to tag Trayvon as a thief. People like you are the very reason we have a racial divide in America.
Gold teeth, tattoos, and facial jewelry are tickets to unemployment.

So is showing up for an interview wearing a hoodie.

Just one question for you.

Why do you continue to make obviously incorrect statements that could be checked with a minimum of effort?

Are you just plain lazy or don't you give a shit?

Maybe the2 nd degree was trumped up but, I'm no lawyer &, I could've made the case for 3rd degree using Zimmerman's statements alone. 3rd degree only needs the proof that. his actions less to Martin's death, with an underline felony. Well, he self admitted to stalking Martin. Case closed, 10 to 15! They over reached & got burned for it. Asfar as not having a case from the beginning, blacks get charged first & asked questions later, FACT!

You are one twisted dude. Now your degree is in psychological behavior, huh psycho? You are totally consummed with hatred, political fanaticism and obviously demented. For an lying idiot like you to cast shadows on people that you have no idea about bares witness to that "FACT". Also a sad indication of your own short comings. The degree of plain hatred towards Obama on here by scumbags like you and a host of others is far more revealing about your own short comings than the parties you malign. So you see your daily rantings are far more a sign of your own troubled world. Seek help..IDIOT.

So says the gun totting NRA puppet, Trayvon had far more the right to shoot Zimmerman than the other way around...Zimmerman was the one asking for it. Trayvon only confronted his stalker as would most men..But then being a real man is confusing to all you baggers...Unless you are carrying ten weapons.Sooo you still maintain that the one carrying the weapon was the one yelling for help?????Chicken sh1t bagger.

cite it or shutup.
The truth is a little difficult to handle, isn't it? Here's the truth again, just in case you don't recognize it at first glance:

You posted some report published in 2008 about how the CRA was not the cause of the economic collapse, and I merely pointed out the fact that it would have been impossible for anyone to investigate it sufficiently because the CRA mortgages were in the possession of "Special Purpose Vehicles" established in foreign countries for the specific purpose of preventing an investigation.
Here's the post again for your edification:
To back your bullshit up, you'd first have to know what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, what countries they were established in, what their purpose was,...
and how your so-called "economists" convinced the governments of the countries these "Special Purpose Vehicles" were established in to force these "Special Purpose Vehicles" to open their books for their review when the US government couldn't do that.
For clarification on what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, ask Ben Bernanke why he referenced them in his testimony before Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of Bernanke immediately ceased when he uttered the words "Special Purpose Vehicle", and later he got 100% support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
For some reason, Bernanke mentioning "Special Purpose Vehicle" to Barney Frank's committee was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC, and ensure unanimous support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
You really need an education on this, dumbass. You can't make any determination without looking at the mortgages, and the mortgages are in the possession of these "Special Purpose Vehicles" which were established in foreign countries specifically to prevent any investigation.

Especially after eight years of destroying the economy by the Republicans. Ever wonder why every recession and depression that we have ever had was after eight years of a Republican presidency??? Hmmmmm.Clinton handed Bush the best of any president ever...Bush handed Obama the very worst ever...Hmmm

Selective reading on your part.
But that's ok. It's not unexpected.
You seem to have a problem answering the post. I'm always willing to help anyone who will help themselves. Here's the post again for your next try:

I don't recall reading any correction from you. Perhaps this time you can put some content into your post. Here's the post again for your convenient reference:
Let's go over US history again:
In 2003 the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program. All necessary legislation was put in place then.
Compounding this idiocy, the Democrats took over all oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse in January, 2007, coincident with the year the effect of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program began to have negative effects on the economy.
After two years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed our economy.
Prior to the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program, the world invested in US real estate mortgage industry because it was a foregone conclusion that... you may need to write this down... history proved that Americans always paid their mortgages.
The Democrats changed that perception of America.

You're one of the few right wing crazies who are sane enough to realize the Constitution is a living, breathing document.
I do believe you're making some progress.
Now, all we have to do is get people like you and Obama to actually read it at least once in your lives.
It's understandable how Obama can't abide by something he's never read.
