I said no such thing. I was commenting on Dumbwaiter agreeing with your post and didn't pay that close attention to what you said.
Name any personal assets that the federal government taxes now that it didn't before Obama took office.
Retirement plans are in the crosshairs, but the plan is confiscation, not taxation.

Obama need heap big money fast.

Didn't the 2010 Budget pass in April of 2009?
I'm asking because it would really be embarrassing for you to be caught in yet another lie today.
I was referring to Obama getting zero votes for all the budgets he managed to send to Congress during his busy schedule of playing golf and avoiding doing anything since he took office. He can't even get one vote from the Congressional Black Caucus. The current vote count for Obama's budgets is 610 (that's six hundred and ten) to 0 (that's ZERRO).
97-0
99-0
414-0

I noticed you didn't say anything about the link I put here with an example of blatant lies on Snopes. How about you comment on that post.

It's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a nut.

Now, back to you lying. What do you think about the blatant lie from Snopes I posted?

As one Congressman said on the Senate floor today, "There's a 'Gone Campaigning' sign outside the Oval Office."
He's back today to high five his peeps in the Democratic Party and made a big to do out of snubbing Republicans because they won't let him have his way. As usual. Reminds me of a 5-year-old.
Well, who can blame him? Congress doesn't want to work with him because he is African-American so the President has been forced to go to the American people, less racist than the Congress, and more willing to work with him.

Think of it as a healthy and vigorous tug-of-war to determine the best way to save the country from Obamacare.
But like families who play games at picnics, they're still family at the end of the day.
weird.

Charles Krauthammer dismissed the seriousness of this so-called "civil war," saying it's "more like a tug of war at a family picnic.

In other words, it was alright for the white guy to fund government in this manner but not the black guy? Oh wait, Republicans can tax the rap out of you & you bend over & smile but not a Democrat President?
I mean really, you have ranted about this for 10,000 GD posts as if Obama was funding the government by something different than was ever used before.
" OMG OMG MG How will Obama fund his government OMG OMG OMG"
And now we get your answer - "the same as every President".
Do you realize how pathetic that is?
It looks like you really, really want to answer this question.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Obama's African vacation was very tiring and he deserves a rest.
It wasn't a vacation you goddamned liar, it was a state visit. Maybe you'd just like to cede Africa and it's strategic resources to the Chinese.

You b*tch & moan about Obama's experience as a community organizer & then admit you have no clue what one does.
This is how stupid you people are.
The funniest part os that if you knew,would would like that people do this.
Tea Party stupidity at its best.
Saul Alinsky gives a pretty good description of what a community organizer does. But, that only applies to people and places actively attempting to overthrow the existing governmenbt and institute a Marxist communist regime.
Is that what Obama is doing?

So you have no link you want to post.
Just as I thought.
Did you figure out what a "card" was yet. Too funny there, Dumbwaiter.
Use the link of your choice.
I gave you the name of the government official, dumbass.
How about you take that name, use the subject, search, and you will see a plethora of links to read. You won't be reading just one biased to one side. You will see all links. That's how you read both sides of the story.
Or, you can just copy the quote I gave you in the search box and it will put a link with that exact quote first in your search.

Just like a Democrat. Expecting everyone else to do everything for you.

You never commented on the blatant lie on Snopes I put here.

First of all, I'm not a doll but I'm used to your issue of sexism.
The only thing that DOES matter is this president refused to tell the American public why it happened, who gave the orders to do what and when - or not to do what and when, what he was doing the entire evening of the attack and who gave Susan Rice the order to start that lie about a video.
That is very important to most of us - especially the victims' families who were lied to by both the President and the Secretary of State at their loved ones' funerals.
You must not mind if you were lied to at your loved one's funeral by the leaders of the country.
Johnson lied I went__Nixon lied and I went back and I survived the experience. Fifty eight thousand Americans did not survive all those lies and if it
interests you the amount of enemy and S. Vietnam civilian dead remains unknown but it's well over one million.

The numbers of injured and maimed are astronomical___the US VA hospitals are still treating Vietnam vets after thirty five years. The enemy and civilian injured and maimed run well into the millions.

And for what?

Hawaii is hoping to take the burden off its welfare system by saying aloha to its 17,000 homeless residents.

The state will offer one-way tickets home to any eligible homeless person to anywhere in the continental United States.

Hawaii has allotted $100,000 for a three year trial run of the so-called 'return-to-home' program, which could also even offer participants beds on cruise ships bound for their homes.

There was an answer, finally. I responded to that answer.
Where's your answer?
I already posted one even though I wasn't asked at the time since you insisted someone do so.

Clearly you didn't read or comprehend it.

But there's nothing unusual about that.

Here it is again:

... I do believe I see a dust trail behind you now. How about you answer that question.

Then, tell us about those lies pointed out to you on Snopes.

But, unlike liberals who blame Bush for everything, I don't blame Clinton. I blame Saddam Hussein for the sanctions that were imposed by his invasion of Kuwait and the thousands that he killed there and in Iraq. And I blame al-Qaeda for 9/11.
Liberals hate to put the blame where it belongs.
Really Carol? In one post you blame Clinton for the Iraq sanctions and now you deny that.
Here's from your post#956515
But, personally, I think the strict sanctions on Iraq during the Clinton administration that killed thousands of children probably made them the most angry.
Here's from your post#956533
The disasters of BushCo? What about the thousands of children who died in Iraq under Clinton's sanctions. Don't you think he should be held accountable for 9/11 and the ensuing wars if you want to blame someone?
So first you blame him then you don't and then you do?
Do you actually know what the hell you're talking about?
Yes we liberals do blame Al Qaeda for attacking the US but we also blame Bush for ignoring the warnings he was given.
