Barack Obama, our next President

So clearly there are ways around a consumption or flat tax.
Homer is also not in the habit of snitching for those of you suggesting I turn his ass in, also there isn't any proof, to be fair I did not look at the receipt to see if there was a line item for taxes before I pitched it.
And before you start yapping about me using a credit card, it is paid in full every month, I have never paid any interest nor annual fee on it. I use it to accumulate points and get free stuff. Homer working the system.
Without an income tax, there is no longer any incentive for a merchant to do business under the table.

So do your imaginary clerks ask you if you want to pay the state sales tax? Don't you think the state sales tax department would notice? Just like they do now?

This week’s events sent a message to the world that the historical Black struggle for social justice and peace was nothing more than a ploy to achieve proximity to Power.”

Just before launching yet another unprovoked war to preserve the empire, Barack Obama stopped by the Lincoln Memorial to star in the commemoration of the 1963 March on Washington. He was joined by former presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the men most responsible for pulling the Democratic Party deep enough into the corporate camp to afford the billion dollar elections that brought Obama to power. The pretense was that the presidents were there to show solemn respect for the Movement that defeated official American apartheid. The truth is, they came to take possession of the occasion – a gift from their minions in the Black Misleadership Class, who believe nothing has value until it is blessed and possessed by Power.

Literally no one will remember what Al Sharpton was barking about at last Saturday’s mass gathering on the Mall; he said not a word that was not slavishly consistent with White House talking points. Nor, in his role as the administration’s chief pit bull and overseer, did Sharpton allow any of the vetted mic-seekers to utter a syllable that might discomfort his masters (although oblique digs at the Republican side of the corporate duopoly were permissible).

If the commemoration were simply another pep rally for Democrats, like the “One Nation” rally staged at the Mall by the same actors just before mid-term congressional elections in 2010, it would rank among the Black Misleadership Class’s many petty corruptions. However, this week’s events sent a message to the world that the historical Black struggle for social justice and peace was nothing more than a ploy to achieve proximity to Power.

No social transformation, just a change of coloration.”

The grave-markers of the martyrs of the Black Freedom Movement – in their thousands – have been reduced to cobblestones on the road to the Obama presidency. In Sharpton’s grasping, narrow vision, the great mass struggles of half a century ago amounted to nothing more than Blacks bum-rushing the velvet ropes so they could party with the elite. No social transformation, just a change of coloration. No world peace, just a piece of the imperial pie.

The problem, of course, is not Sharpton’s personal vulgarity and corruption, but the worldview that he shares with the whole cabal of Black misleaders. To put it simply, they never agreed with Dr. Martin Luther King on the need for a “revolution” that is “international in scope” and would force the United States to “repent of her modern economic imperialism,” as historian Paul Street notes in this issue. They do not share Dr. King’s socially transformational “dream.” Indeed, they have no core vision at all, other than that Black American individuals be widely represented within structures of power in the United States: Black titans of Wall Street, Black generals and – the ultimate prize – a Black president.

“No world peace, just a piece of the imperial pie.”

In that sense, the Black Misleadership Class’s “dream” arrived in 2008. Barack Obama is the great prize, the racial victory that must be defended at any and all costs. The collapse of the Black economy, the evisceration of the Constitution, mass Black incarceration, multiple and constant U.S. wars against weaker peoples – none of this can be allowed to tarnish or undermine the embodiment of Black progress, Barack Obama. Which is why it is perfectly logical to Sharpton and Ben Jealous and their ilk that Obama star in the March on Washington commemoration, as both the symbol and the personification of “The Dream.” It is the dream of those who want nothing more than to become full-fledged partners in U.S. imperialism.

It is inconceivable that Dr. King would share the stage with a president who was at that moment preparing a savage and illegal attack on a sovereign country. Dr. King’s voice has been censored and his dream vandalized, repackaged and presented as a gift to a corporate agent with a Kill List

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement on Friday that U.S. intelligence concluded with 'high confidence' that the Assad regime in Syria is responsible for the Aug. 21 chemical attack in the suburbs of Damascus. Kerry added that the U.S. estimates at least 1,429 Syrians were killed in the attack, including 426 children.

The way rightwingers are posting it's like we've already fought a war with Syria and lost. Why do they hate America so much? Who's side are rightwinger's truly on?

Aid and Comfort

Any act that deliberately strengthens or tends to strengthen enemies of the United States, or that weakens or tends to weaken the power of the United States to resist and attack such enemies is characterized as aid and comfort.

Yeah that pretty much sums up what rightwingers post here every day.

When Bush left office, Al Qaeda was holed up in caves. Since Obama took office, Al Qaeda has established jihad training facilities in multiple countries, and has rebuilt sufficiently to take over countries.
Do you support Obama's intent to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire the chemical weapons in Syria?
I do not support any military action without U.N. backing or, at the very least, without joint involvement of a coalition of nations...including Britain. Period.

IMO, if Obama allows the warmongers to persuade him to abandon his principles by taking unilateral military action against Syria, he will become a laughing stock. Just because the warmongering republicans have insisted on building up a massive military machine doesn't mean Democrats have to avail themselves of it. We certainly should not be leading an attack on Assad.

<quoted text>Obama's desire to attack Syria is not the result of actions taken during a civil war. Obama is angry at Assad for disagreeing with Obama's political agenda. This is simply an example that Obama thinks he is King of The Earth and can do anything he wants without consequence. The Obama Zombies across the United States idolize him so much that they will never question his actions,then they call any one that does question Obama's agenda a racist.
you seem to forget a war started by the arrogant Bush purely for financial gain. and when did they start planning it? the day after Bush stepped into the WH.

and as many of the liberals on this thread have indicated, we do not want Obama to bomb Syria. we are not the heartless azzholes who try to compare who killed the most children as a talking point.

so with you with no leg to stand on, who's the racist?

I never said you didn't pay them but by not paying at least what you owe weekly or monthly(however you get paid, if you still do) but by paying it annually you are adding to the debt with the accrued interest for those 12 months.
