I see you can't actually reply with a factual point, so you just resort to insults? That's the last refuge of the dim-witted. Name calling.<quoted text>
I expect you're not as smart as a 5th grader so you can just skip it.

I just copycat you.
Here's your boy Obama===
Unemployment Claims Climb As Layoffs Surge To Highest Level Since 2011
All unemployment rate 7.9%
Black unemployment rate 13.8%
Gee, thanks Obama. You are doing a great job!
What do you have up next?
#5942 Apr 4, 2013
How many times has this been covered? Repeatedly during the debates. Can't you guys ever let go of a "right wing talking point" even after it's been disproven repeatedly ad-nauseum?
Yet you guys still keep going to those same old worn out tired disproven arguments.
#5943 Apr 4, 2013
Don't be dense, ok? Just don't.
You've been exposed to this information repeatedly before - but feel free to look at it again.
You can't just pretend unemployment rates are in a bubble all by themselves. They ARE absolutely tied to other facets of the economy. Yes, the VERY SAME ECONOMY that went right down the drain in October 2008 after 8 years of Republican Policies.
So really - just don't try to play those games with me. You can throw out your inane and illogical retorts to somebody who's a moron and they might let you get away with it. But right now the adults are trying to talk.

When are you going to answer these questions or has old age set in already.
Questions. from Bill In Dorville
Is your tax on gross income or taxable income? What's the difference?
Is it on all income or is it an incremental rate? If incremental, what are the ranges for various rates (if any) and what are the % rates?
What's the current top rate right now?
Why the difference between "income" and "capital gains"?
"Those who take the most from our society can afford to pay the most to keep it functioning."
How is it that someone that makes a lot of $ takes the most from our society? Someone that wins a lottery is taking a lot from our society? A sports star is taking a lot from our society? PLEASE explain/define what they are taking.
So you want someone to pay over 50% of their income (your tax, but you haven't explained it very well, plus state income taxes, plus FICA) in taxes. Wow. You must want the government to have all kinds of $ and take care of everything. Not me.
"Conversely, I think EVERYBODY (with a few obvious exceptions), needs to pay at least 10%."
I agree everybody should pay something. How did you get 10%? ASSUMING it's on income, what about those that don't file tax returns or work "under the table"? They're not paying anything.

You know better. You paid attention during the Super Committee talks. Republican behavior was insane at the time. First words uttered during the whole thing was Boehner "Defense Cuts are off the table. Even mention them and we're walking".
Obama simply wanted a balanced and logical approach which included spending cuts along with increasing revenues. Republicans - ever defenders of the mega-wealthy- absolutely refused to play along.
Now we have the Sequester.
Thanks Republican Defenders of the super-wealthy.

Got your azz handed to you factually, and so now you're trying to go off in a different direction? Typical.
But I'll answer anyway: I intend to respond to them at precisely WHENI'MDAMNREADYTO O'clock. Hows that work for you?
I just got home a bit ago. Unlike you, I operate a multi-million dollar small business and I don't get home at 4 or 5. I tend to work late.
The responses to those questions are in-depth, and I just don't feel like writing an essay right now. But I will when I DO feel like it.
Good enough for you?

So as not to let a Libtard lie pass.
To try and resolve the 2011 United States debt-ceiling crisis
the solution came from White House National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling, who, on July 12, 2011, proposed a compulsory trigger that would go into effect if another agreement was not made on tax increases and/or budget cuts equal to or greater than the the debt ceiling increase by a future date.
Ultimately, the intent of the sequester was to secure the commitment of both sides to future negotiation by means of an enforcement mechanism that would be unpalatable to Republicans and Democrats alike. President Obama agreed to the plan. House Speaker John Boehner expressed reservations, but also agreed.
On July 26, 2011, White House Budget Director Jack Lew and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to discuss the plan. Reid, like Boehner several days before, was initially opposed to the idea, but was eventually convinced to go along with it, with the understanding that the sequester was intended as an enforcement tool rather than a true budget proposal.
Hmmmmmmm, From the White House, Well, well, well, how quaint. And who runs the White House? Why old Obama himself.
#5948 Apr 4, 2013
How can you write the drivel you write? Do you have no comprehension at all of the article you posted?
"Ultimately, the intent of the sequester was to secure the commitment of both sides to future negotiation by means of an enforcement mechanism that would be unpalatable to Republicans and Democrats alike."
Read that again. Try to understand what it means. Then follow-up on the negotiations that took place to prevent it.

Here's are some ghosts from the past from your lying President==
President Barak Obama pledged
1.To bring back the jobs lost in 2007 and 2008. In 2009 the nations unemployment went from 7% in 2008 to 10%( in some areas 17%). Obama’s administration bailed out the auto industry, banking industry, saved the union workforce and even helped the unions get ownership in the companies by forcing the creditors to lose their financial investments in the companies.
The Obama administration has increased the size of government by 10%, added more union jobs and commissions. Government unemployment stands at 3% and government employees and Congress did get a raise. in 2009 while the deficit increased.
2.To fix the economic problems by passing the $787 billion Tarp bill (Congress passed the bill without reading or debating the bill as required by constitutional rules.), promised that unemployment would not exceed 8% and shovel ready jobs were available to jump start the economy.
As of today approximately 60% of Tarp has not been spent and unemployment remains at 10%. Recently the CBO projected Tarp will need $85 billion more added to the $787 billion bill. One should note that all of the above is borrowed money adding to the nations skyrocketing debt.
3.To have fiscal responsibility and control spending, Barak Obama promised to go line for line and strike out pork in the Tarp bill. The President signed the Tarp bill without cutting any pork out of the bill.
The only thing that has held down unemployment to around 7.9% is Obama increasing government employment by 10% or more.
Big government does not improve the economy, free enterprise does whcih you Libtards don't understand.
#5950 Apr 4, 2013
Have seen no facts from you, a lot of hyperbole and bulls**t.
#5951 Apr 4, 2013
It looks like things have slowly and steadily been getting better after you Republicans tanked the economy. Be glad somebody with sensible policies is running the country. Things could have been a lot worse after the Bush&Cronies house of cards started to fall apart.
You really have nothing in your cut and paste job there.

Yea, all those folks working at Walmart have a million bucks sitting around the house, and we know Walmart, Publix, and 7-11, all pay their cashiers $200K a year - so they have no excuse not become hedge fund entrepreneurs.
Those shiftless losers just won't invest that disposable income from their $9.00 per hour wages.
Maybe we should simply make the rich pay at the same tax rate working people do.
Yea, asking these folks to pay taxes at the same rate working folks do is soooooo unfair.
Heirs to Today's Largest Fortunes
This time weâ€™re going to take a look at a few heirs awaiting an inheritance.
Delphine Arnault: Delphineâ€™s father, Bernard, heads the LVMH Group whose portfolio includes Louis Vuitton, MoĂ«t, Hennessy, Marc Jacobs, Dior among others. Deemed the Wolf in a Cashmere Coat, she is one of the richest women in the world.
Sam Branson: Samâ€™s father, Sir Richard Branson, is worth an estimated $3.8 billion and is the man behind the Virgin collection of companies. Sam is often seen hanging with Hollywood celebutantes, modeling, and relaxing on his dadâ€™s private 74 acre island, Necker Island.
The Ikea sons: IKEA is the worldâ€™s premier supplier of affordable home furnishings. Headed by Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA is, in fact, the worldâ€™s largest furniture retailer generating around $28 Billion dollars per year in worldwide sales. Ingvarâ€™s three sons are expected to inherit tens of billions of dollars.
Abigail Johnson: Abigail â€śAbbyâ€ť Johnsonâ€™s family controls 49% of Americaâ€™s largest mutual fund company. As of 2008, Abigail Johnson was worth around $15 Billion dollars US, placing her as the 43rd richest person in the world.
Ivanka Trump: As the daughter of Donald Trump, Ivanka stands to inherit her fatherâ€™s undisclosed amount of personal wealth as well as real estate and entertainment assets. Her brothers, Donald, Jr. and Eric, along with Ivanka will inherit most of what â€śthe Donaldâ€ť leaves behind.
Allegra Versace: On her 18th birthday, Allegra came into the inheritance left to her valued at over $700 million. After her early education in Milan, Allegra attended Brown University. Her struggle with anorexia is well documented and ongoing.
Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer: Granddaughter of cosmetic greatness, Estee Lauder - In 2004, Aerinâ€™s stock holdings in Estee Lauder alone topped $550 million US.
Hey, I don't want to be unfair. From now on, let's make the billionaires pay at 35% and the working man pay at 15%.
If that's too unfair to all you rich parasites, feel free to get a job.
Do you Right Wingers understand how stupid is sound to claim all Americans have the "same" opportunity to enjoy capital gains rates and hedge fund rates.
Yea, that's the same as saying all Americans have the same opportunity to play professional football for the Falcons. That 5'4" 135 lb. 18 year old better get off his ass and start working out - there's no reason he can't start at cornerback.
And you wonder why rational folks just shake their heads in wonder at the moronic words that fall from Right Wing mouths.
#5953 Apr 4, 2013
Allright - I do have to give you credit for one thing. You've picked the right user-name.
I'm "Bored" to death of you at this point.
You can't/won't stick to a conversational topic because you don't want to get pinned down. You're not very good at refuting anything. Hell, I could come up with a MUCH better criticisms of the Obama administration than you're doing. You cut and past all the wrong info to try and make ANY kind of point- you don't care what it is, you'll just throw anything against the wall to see what sticks, and you don't understand the big-picture. Essentially, you're just another poorly-informed low-rent Obama hater with no game.
You've "Bored" me.

Update on this post.
"One health expert with close ties to HHS told Breitbart News, "The navigator program, as evidenced by the leadership of Enroll America and yesterday's rule from CMS, will be a jobs program for unemployable Obama For America campaign volunteers and ACORN remnants."
"many observers are uneasy about the inclusion of voter registrations in the health care applications. LA Rep. Charles Boustany recently sent a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, asking why voter registration information was included. Boustany worried:
The position of the question could lead some to think voter registration is somehow tied to subsidy eligibility."
So it looks like Acorn will be registering illegals to vote at the same time they register to get free healthcare.
#5955 Apr 4, 2013
The bottom was when Obama took over, it hasn't risen since. He's kept it at the same level, well ok unemployment did go up and up.
#5956 Apr 4, 2013
Isn't it amazing how in Right Wing World the years 2000 to 2008 never occurred.
Those years are just a black holes to be filled with Right Winger fantasies of what they wish had happened, but didn't.
That's especially easy for Right Wingers since they proudly announce they despise facts and find them so boring.
So, collectively, by God, we'll just pretend Bush wasn't the biggest disgrace and debacle in American history.
Remember that Right Wing self-protective procedure when confronted by reality - close your eyes, cover your ears, and shout la-la-la-la. Above all, never, never, never, acknowledge reality.
#5957 Apr 4, 2013
You're actually bored by the truth.'
#5958 Apr 4, 2013
You haven't started a conversational topic yet.
When you do, let me know.
#5959 Apr 4, 2013
Pick a subject and stick with it. Health care, sequesters, unemployment, now Acorn?
Yet another reason you should be thankful to Obama. With PPACU you might finally be able to fill that script for Adderall.
