You should not comment on "John Galt" and "poop" in the same context. "Galt" is honest and mostly posts facts even though they may be tough to digest, "poop" on the other hand offers nothing but BS and slurs. There is no comparing the two of them.

No, but it is an opinion site, and all topics are fair game.

Topix Rule #1: When someone brings up a topic, it's okay to respond with an opinion.(You don't have to read or believe anyone's opinion.)

Typical RED propaganda. It was and is the REDs that are continuously throwing our nation into debt and for the profits of the 1%. Your naive fellowship of these losers demonstrates your addiction to simple apple pie America answers.
Nothing new other than Obama has wised up to the republicans audacious ideologues. Ever wonder which party has been the greatest obstruction to our nations progress?
Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

There are only certain parts of the Affordable Care Act that are under the jurisdiction of the IRS. Some sections are under the jurisdiction of Health and Human Services and some are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Labor. You're an idiot.
Certain parts? In other words the whole thing. You are under the mistaken impression that the IRS isn't the top dog? This thing will come back to bite them. Hopefully you will be bitten harder than most, and your welfare payments will will be lowered? But maybe that's to much to hope for? You're a leech, everything for nothing. BUT, someone has to pay, and it sure as heck isn't you...

Taylor Swift is signed to a label so, at the least she's dividing the pie in half. What part of stupid are you stuck on? 40/40 clubs, rocawear, ace of spade &, black label liquor, music ventures that exceeds $100m &, not including his music, partial owner of the Nets( use to be), owner of his own label with artists like Kanye West, Rihanna, J-Cole, platinum selling artists. Where in you tiny brain do you find the comparison? It's a fact that rappers signed to record deals make far less money than R&B, Country, Rock&Roll &, maybe even gospel so, your lie yesterday about Rap being a money venture for rappers is a lie. And you just contradicted yourself. You give Taylor Swift props for not getting jerked &, turn around &, blame rapper for not signing faulty contracts! Hypocrite!
It's a stupid argument dumbazz because it's apples and oranges.

The conversation was about how rap/hip hop music came to be and whether or not the music is timeless. Flack asked if anyone thought there will be rap golden oldies, Hah, fk no there won't be because rap/hip hop has no shelf life.

I'm not saying that Swift's music is timeless either, only that she's made a ton of money and if she remains popular she'll blow right past JayZ $ within a few years and with a lot less hassle.

I'm more of a Bruno Mars fan actually.

Socialist? Yes we are. Only a naive would not comprehend that. From your sidewalk to the realms of outer space YOU support a socialism ideology to support your capitalism. All you are is a puppet of the fox making you a socialist RED neck. Now on to reality and away from your callow nonsense of this for that malarkey. Of which you have no knowledge of.
Tea Party validate their vindictive policies with various hyper false RED herrings. Example; IRS issue has always been used by all administrations dating back to F.D.R. Only difference with the Obama administration is that it started from the bottom up, as all others started from top down. Another red herring is Benghazi, and if you will remember Libya, lack of security issues. Considering it was the Tea Party leading with the Hue and Cry to deny Obama’s request for additional funds to increase security to our embassies’, right after the Libyan War. Now they PROJECT their errors onto the Executive branch. Using this to validate their need to hold Congress and the Nation into another Hostage/Ransom, Our Way or The Highway scenarios. Refusing any conferences that promotes a budget. Accusing democrats of over reach and obfuscation.??? Hmmm Paradox leadership.. Tea promotes Emperor ideologies.
Gazing at some of these comments I see people stating thoughts that they can not defend. Just what the Truth is, they can’t say anymore, nevermore…
All administrations have used the IRS to target certain individuals and organizations.

But never before have so many individuals and small groups been targeted by a former president who gave it a nod of approval and that went up as far as top officials closest to that president determining and overseeing interrogative and overreaching tactics to discourage an opposing ideology from participating in the political process by regular American citizens.

This was a first.

It's why Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth. No one does that unless they have something to hide or someone very important to protect under oath.

This administration has single-handedly brought the term "stonewalling" to previously unimaginable heights.

Other than Nixon.

So now you have to go back more than 25 years to try and prove it wasn't Bush's fault? Hilarious (and a true sign of complete desperation).
