uh huh, what about Jack "cayman islands" Lew, Barry's new controller from the jewish bankers cabal?

"Corporate Welfare" passed by both parties, for good reasons likely, a drop in the bucket compared to the $500 billion yearly in real welfare, producing nothing but slackers, moochers, layabouts, criminals, disintegrating families and ingrates.

Just because I don't agree with subsidizing investing doesn't mean I do not invest.
If you invest in the stock market, they you're likely buying stock from a previous stock owner.
To create a loophole where you take your salary as investment income, it is handing money to the wealthy.
Another of your legions of lies, investment money has already been taxed and will be taxed again, the only actual dollars leaving the treasury fo to welfare recipients.

Nice to hear you admit you rely on capitalists and Wall Street to make you money.

Why don't you just put it in your banks savings and get your whopping .75 % interest?

When a moron like you makes an indefensible lie the typical response is "Do your own research.". That doesn't fly here. Cite your source or KMA.

The government subsidizes Walmart; through Medicaid and foodstamps. The employees probably buy everything they need or eat from Walmart.
If they cut foodstamps, this will directly affect Walmarts sales. Walmart is a welfare recipient.

Odd how so many people can't see that, or refuse too.

The wealthy are not shopping there. Ever go into one? I don't shop there, and refuse to patronize such a business, but, the odd time I have gone in there, you can't help but notice that the customers are poor young families, lots of old people.

you're a stooge.
This post illustrates how uniquely ignorant you right wing morons are. All the money you whine about benefiting the wealthy is protected by laws your Republican party guards with their political life.
You're a lemming.

Fox News’ greatest failure: Roger Ailes, Chris Christie and the quest for a Republican president

Fox honcho Roger Ailes started 2012 dreaming of a Christie presidency. By the end, his dreams had become nightmares

http://www.salon.com/2014/01/15/fox_news_grea...

it's also a great story about how FOX failed to knock Obama out of the WH in 2012. though a one word synopsis would be 'delusion'.

Most means one more than 50% and I've never seen any statistical proof that didn't include WalMarts part timers who qualify for Social Security MediCare etc. One can easily google what typical WalMart and SuperWalmart managers make but the are many assistant managers in the Superstores__one for pet and animal food and accessories, HBA, pharmacy, etc. In some areas, such as mine, sporting goods (fishing-guns-ammo) managers are paid well.

I live just off the Chesapeake Bay and the inter coastal waterway. The parade of yachts that comes by every spring and fall drives the libtards around here nuts.They are spending billions building high rise bridges and tunnels to keep the traffic flowing. Almost all paid with tolls. No toll booths however. If you don't have easy pass they take a picture of your licence plate and mail you a bill in the mail.

If the rapper The Game has his way, he will "beat the f**k out of" George Zimmerman in the ring come March, TMZ is reporting.

Zimmerman, 30, has officially agreed to participate in a March 1 celebrity-boxing match, though the final decision as to whom will be his opponent remains to be decided and is up to the match’s promoter Damon Feldman. He plans to donate any earnings from the boxing match to charity, according to ABC Action News.

The Game, however, is hoping to fight for a different cause. He's eager to show Zimmerman that altercations can be dealt with sans weapons.

"I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family," the rapper, who is 6'5", 240lbs, told TMZ. "I will beat the f**k out of him."

Ok...so my comment was a tad hyperbolic...how many salaried people are at your local Wallyworld?

how many are part timers and how many are getting public assistance?

i;m outta here for a while,,, look forward to your research findings. it think they will open your eyes.

then check how much of the stores profits go into your local economy...that will REALLY open your eyes...

You mean those like myself with rental properties and commercial RE interests?

If I'm not mistaking the subject was taxes and who pays them The answer is, everyone pays taxes of some kind. And some among the nations working poor pay a far higher % of their incomes on the various taxes and government fees than do the wealthiest Americans.
