Bet your bottom dollar I'd take the oath the military and law enforcers are taking to uphold and defend the Constitution against all threats - both foreign and domestic.

Wouldn't you?

The governments money is what you owe in taxes.
If you get a reduction in taxes, does your wallet have more money than if you got no deduction?
It's a simple question.
This is where you're all fucked up.
To begin with, the person/corporation/entity/what ever is the owner of the money until that money is transferred to some other person/corporation/entity/what ever, in this case the government.
The government can assess a tax. This money does not belong to the government until that tax is paid. If the government assesses a tax, then excuses part of that tax, the end fucking result, you fucking moron, is a lower tax assessed.

You primary assumption is communist. Here, the government doesn't own the money by default and allows a certain portion of that money to be kept by people/corporations.

Here's how it works in a capitalist system: The private entity owns the money. The government levies a tax. The private entity pays the tax. Then, and only after the tax has been collected, the government owns that money. Until the tax has been collected, the government doesn't ownshit.

Pay particular attention to the FACT that when the government allows a tax exemption, that is a tax exemption. The result is a lower tax paid.

A SUBSIDY IS MONEY GIVEN BY THE GOVERNMENT.
A lower tax rate is not a subsidy because... you may need to write this down... THE GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER RECEIVED THE MONEY TO GIVE IT BACK. The government lowered the tax. That's all.

There are no subsidies to AMERICAN oil companies. The only oil company Obama subsidises is Petrobras, the national oil company of Brasil. Subsidies to American oil companies is an urban legend. There is no such thing as a subsidy to an American oil company.

It's not like they weren't ever there, you moron.

You don't mind being called a moron in this particular instance, do you?

Because the Democrats believed they were there - the UN believed they were there - and intelligence believed they were there.

Saddam had plenty of time to get rid of them. Now Syria has them...or did...supposedly.

Rachel Maddow compiled and dissected a recent speech by Obama in which he explains the future use of FEMA camps directly allowing indefinite pre-emptive detention for crimes that have not been committed yet. Maddow stated Obama's overreach is "far beyond anything Bush and Cheney ever attempted and completely outside even the constitution's Article 1, Section 9."
She compares Obama's evolving policy to that of the Tom Cruise science fiction movie: Minority Report, in which Cruise works as a cop in the department of pre-crime, arresting people for things they haven't done yet.

The first step was to use the IRS to go after his political enemies. The FEMA camps are being held in reserve...just in case.

WHEN has the BUCK EVER STOPPED WITH OBAMA a/k/a O'Blamer. It has been someone else's fault from the very beginning, Bush, AIG executives, doctors, senior citizens, veterans...anyone who doesn't agree with The One.

'But finally, after two months of horror, President Obama heard cheering when he discussed ObamaCare.

OK, so the cheering came from members of his own staff, who were assembled in the White House briefing room to hear him speak Tuesday afternoon. But listen, the guy has had a hard time since Oct. 1; he can use all the cheering he can get.

The speech was promoted as part of an aggressive new effort to promote ObamaCare following the repairs (far from completed) made to the HealthCare.gov Web site. If that was the intent, it was a colossal failure.

The president said nothing ó and I mean literally nothing ó he hasnít said before in defense of ObamaCare. He delivered the same tribute to its glories and wonders Iíve heard him give so many times now, I couldíve written it myself.

No, in truth, yesterday wasnít about ObamaCare. It was about Obama.

It was about bucking up the boss. It was about showing him some love.

The fact that Obama was in on the tribute to himself only adds to the poignancy. You have to be a little desperate to agree to organize and promote a support rally to boost your own spirits.

He got the applause he wanted. He got the love he needed. He got MSNBC talk personalities to speak admiringly of him. So by those standards, if by no other, the speech was a roaring success.

Because Obama is The One we have been waiting for. And waiting. And waiting. How's that ocean and planet healing going?
