<quoted text>working OT ain't gonna throw you into a different tax bracket...if one actually did cross over into a new quintile, you only lose money if you barely make it over the threshold, and then you just have to donate to a tax free charity until your taxable income is just below it...
both your examples are urban myths...
guess you never heard of the AMT......

or loss of deductions in higher brackets....

or means testing on Medicare premiums, based on AGI......

and in California you are taxed on federal adjusted gross income, so deductions are useless.......

so, your conclusions are worthless

What part of: " Democrats and Independents are mainly responsible for the slide in Obama's ratings" did you not comprehend?
Since most Blacks are Democrats, Barack's low and falling poll numbers must reflect their opinion as well.
Quite a fall from grace, from his lofty perch, wouldn't you say, Bridezilla ??
Final Line < in your stupid shtick >: White People: "Bring It" !!
You really are a brain dead bitch ...
Read "Em & Weep as You Slide On Down:
Obama's Current Ratings: Is Obama Respected On The World Stage:
Democrats: 2013 Respect Obama 80%- Do Not Respect Obama 14%
Democrats: 2014 Respect Obama 69%- Do Not Respect Obama 28%
Independents: 2013 Respect Obama 49%- Do Not Respect Obama 45%
Independents: 2014 Respect Obama 34%- Do Not Respect Obama 57%
Democrats and Independents are mainly responsible for the slide in Obama's ratings. Independents now, by a wide margin, believe World Leaders do not respect Obama. Republicans were already largely convinced World Leaders don't respect the president
<quoted text>
And you think the current GOP appeals to independents?
Check the polls on that one

Well dumbo, we could start with your Bush bunny and the Republicans leaving us most of the debt and screwing up ever thing that they touched after eight years of neglect and incompetence, then we could throw in useless states like Oklahoma and all of their bagger nut cases, that be it.
It was a sad day when Bush was crowned head of state by Sandra Day O'Connor and the other clowns. If Gore hadn't been robbed of the presidency, we would have never invaded Iraq and gone down the rabbit hole where Bush led us. There would have been no tax cuts for the wealthy. No Patriot Act. No Citizens United. No worldwide hatred toward America. No recession. If only we could turn back the clock and make things right.

Only idiots think that, fools like you are the by product of Fox AKA [fanatical obsessed xenophobes]. If the Republicans were in control we would be in a couple more wars right now...They have proven over and over that they couldn't care less about the lives of our military, it's always about power and greed for those idiots. Obama is using intelligence, patience and common sense...No wonder you chicken hawks are confused.

Have you even read the 5th amendment?
The liberal media pushed that through during the Clinton years.

My neighbor in GERMANY was a used car salesman (He was an Irishman)....
His dealership dealt in Lamborghini's, Ferrari's, Porsche...as well as the occasional Trans Ams, Camaro that some American had shipped over...
(HE drove a NSX) I got to ride in them all...he would not let me drive...I asked!
So....
knowing the PEOPLE that buy Ferrari's and Lambos and Corvettes...
A used Corvette will have been RED - LINED a million times....
not a wise investment unless you know the previous owner...
Corvettes were once the dream of every young male, but not so much any more...except for those in mid-life crisis....

really a very impractical, poor-handling car.....and some years were really underpowered, all show and no go....

The fact that Lerner waived her right to take the Fifth by announcing her innocence beforehand could possibly hold her in contempt.
Also, and just heard this today, Lerner was in the process of negotiating immunity through her lawyers until Issa announced it was a done deal. The negotiations stopped immediately.
Whether she ends up talking because of immunity has yet to be seen. But the mere fact she was discussing it speaks volumes.
perhaps Obama offered Lerner a better deal....the guarantee of a pardon if ever needed.....

President Obama urged Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in a one-hour phone call Thursday to pursue a diplomatic solution to his military incursion into Crimea, including direct talks between Russia and Ukraine with outside observers.
Obama also proposed a pull back of troops to pre-existing Russian bases, international monitors to protect the rights of all populations in Ukraine, and support for new Ukrainian elections in May, the White House said in a statement about the conversation with Putin.
"President Obama indicated that there is a way to resolve the situation diplomatically, which addresses the interests of Russia, the people of Ukraine, and the international community," the White House said.
In its own statement., the Kremlin said Putin told Obama that relations should not suffer over Ukraine.
"The president of Russia emphasized the paramount importance of Russian-US relations for ensuring stability and security in the world," the Kremlin said. "These relations should not be sacrificed due to disagreements over individual -- albeit extremely significant -- international problems."

My husband said you sound like an idiot. And that your neighbor should have done some thinking before buying a car like that in your shitty pot holed neighborhood.

Uh, an acronym for an establishment, country club republican is RINO, republican in name only. Thus the rhino in the avatar. Pronounced the same. The symbol for the republican party is the elephant. These RINOs are screwing up the republican party.
