From what I`ve read about the man he didnt remember to much.I`m suprised he could even piss without help.
Ya know, towards the end of being President, I really believe he had the beginning stages of Alzheimers. I think his personal Doctor knew this and should of made an issue of it.

Personally speaking, it is a LITTLE harder to hit something if they who you are shooting at are shooting at ou. You tend to keep your head down more and make quicker shoots which result in misses. Go ahead and turn in you guns for money-dope or whatever. Thats what the gov. wants you to do DEAD-EYE.

Yeah, well at my age I would probably call you a boy but lets give the respect where it is warranted. You dem/libs tend to slough everything off as it didn't mean anything. Reminds me of the 60's and the hippie days. They are the ones that are running the country now. Just look at our very own home grown terrorist. Bill Ayers

You probably don't know what that word "dictator" means. I'd suggest you look it up and keep it close cause that is what we got coming our way, a dictator-ship.

All of these things you mention are available to everyone, but it is the person who risks everything that they and their family have to start a business that built that business. Everyone did not take the risk. The risk taker built his business, not the Government.
Yes, they are available to everyone, because they are paid fo by everyone. Thank you for making my point. BUT businesses could not exist without them, and those things would not exist without a government to collect taxpayer's money, pool it and build them.
You seem to feel like government is an enemy, but it can be a force for good, since it can do collectively what individuals can't. THAT is all I meant when I posted that list.

<quoted text>Who blocked Obama's 2nd budget proposal in 2010 when Democrats controlled both houses? Who blocked Obama's last budget proposal that got zero votes in the house and the Democratic Senate.(97-0 and 414-0) This president cannot even bring his own party together to back him. The Democratic Senate has not passed an Obama budget proposal in 3 years. But blame it on the Tea Party, not the President. Or should I say wannabe dictator?
If you study politics, you know why that bdget got no Democratic votes. The Dems knew it had no chance of becoming law, and that the Republicans would beat them over the head with it in the congressional races, so leadership made a decision that no members would support it. That is politics.
I watched and I assume you did also as Republicans used the ACA savings, taken from Medicare as a campaign issue, even though the Ryan Budget which passed out of the House contained virtually the same cuts...which were NOT used for alternative healthcare. That is politics too....like either or not.

Then we should take away his right to vote, don't you think?

Actually, Obamacare has redefined boy and girl to 26.

Perhaps what we should do is move the voting age and drinking age to 26 as well.

It pays to be consistent.

<quoted text>
The more you write, the more I get the feeling you are not a business owner. If you are indeed a business owner, then you do indeed help fund unemployment, medicare and social security. You are taxed for unemployment benefits based on your unemployment multiplier which is assigned to you. The tax you are liable for is called SUTA and FUTA. You fund this, not the employees. Healthcare may or may not be funded by your business, but in my business, I pay 60% of all healthcare benefits for my employees including dental and vision. Medicare and Social Security is also partly funded by you along with the employees. I simply call this payroll tax but they have their own acronym. In most businesses, employees have to earn what I am paying them in addition to the other funding I am required to pay for them. I pay my employees for their effort at helping make my company a profit. If they do a good job and perform, then they have earned their pay and get the right to keep their job. Unemployment, Medicare, Workman's Comp are all things required of me to pay the government simply for having employees. In addition to these taxes, I also pay property tax, franchise and use tax, state and federal corporate tax and excise tax. And again, this is in addition to the health, disability, life insurance, 401K matching and other benefits I provide on my own. If the government wants more taxes from me, then some of the benefits I provide on my own will decrease. Or I could simply raise prices, but in this economy, that is the kiss of death and would cost some employees their jobs.
I realize keeping good employees is the key to success and I do what I can to do just that. However, I do this in spite of the government, not because of it. Like I said earlier, some, not all, posters on this thread demonize businesses. However, when the government gets involved, it usually involves some sort of tax that either makes prices go higher or takes away benefits from employees. And the government's intervention is supposedly aimed at helping employees or those less well off. However, the end result is that their intervention actually hurts those they say they are trying to help.
I do disagree with your opinion, but I do respect you for having one. Standing up for something is a whole lot better than standing up for nothing.
I read that over twice "Tri Cities" and for the life of me I can't see where what I posted is in conflict with what you posted.
I am of the opinion that those who work for me EARN their paychecks AND the additional costs associated with employees like unemployment ins. and the employer's portion of their Social Security, and all the rest, just as they earn vacations. and I consider this part of their compensation. You posted "In most businesses employees have to earn what I am paying them in addition to the other funding I am required to pay for them." Is there something I missed or are we on the same page here ?
I could not stay in business long if employees cost me more than the profit they produce, and neither could you !
When I went into business Jimmy Carter was President and I started with a loan from a local bank at 17% interest. I was a poor kid and a banker took a chance on me. I didn't have a lot of room for mistakes, but I made a few.....I'm still here, thanks to hard work, and a good bit of luck, but I wouldn't be where I am without the skill sets of those who work and have worked for me over these many years, I know it, and I appreciate it.
The only difference of opinion that we seem to have is, I know I couldn't have done it alone....and you seem to disagree ! It wouldn't be the first time someone has disagreed with me on here or off !
I appreciate the fact that you are willing to engage in a discussion of ideas and opinions without the usual Topix tactics, and look forward to future discussions.

And here I thought (you project to everyone) that the dem/libs had everybody in their heart(s). No you say it was only politics. WHAT---they don't care????????? NO they only want your vote. A PAWN!!!!!!! that all the dem.libs are.

Thanks for admitting that Liberals place party politics above the business of the country.

You have demonstrated how they refuse to participate in anything they cannot win. The proper way for a Senator or Representative to act is to vote the way the people they represent want them to, and then to comprmise from there. By refusing this participation, they show their unwillingness to do the will of the people they represent.

A jury will often take a vote as soon as deliberations start just to see where they stand. But Senator Reid will not even allow bills, passed by the house to come to vote or discussion

It is also amazing that you Liberals get on here and preach that the President was elected and all should support him, when your own members of Congress will not do it.

However, it does not surprise that Harry and his cronies in the Senate will "take their ball and go home" if they don't think they can win. They are acting like children on a school ground, not responsible leaders.

They never vote for what the people want anymore.

Businesses existed in this country long before the things you mentioned. New trails were blazed by pioneers long before the Government built highways. If anything, you have it backwards. The Government would not exist, if not for the people. It was not the Government that made this the greatest country on earth. It was the hard work and risks taken by the people that did that. Government came along after. This Country has done quite well until the Government started taking more power and chipping away at the rights of the people. If we allow this to continue, this Countrt will fall from within. It is well on it's way to that now, and you Liberals can't see it.

You were born 100 years too late ! You can try getting off that highway, truck driver, and blaze a trail through the wildernes with your pick, shovel, axe and a team of mules, if you wish. Don't forget to bring your rifle in case you run into some savages along the way !
Come to think of it ....Maybe I was off by 50 years, since 100 years ago, the railroads already existed and there was less of a need for trailblazing...Those railroads were facilitated by government.
I prefer to remain in the 21st century.
Your problem is you want to use all that the taxpayers provide through government, you just resent to paying for it.

Yes trails were blazed, like the Lewis and Clark expedition;1804-06.
Commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, who requested $2500 from Congress......and guess what they said YES.(not like today)

At the same time our Navy and Marines were fightning in Tripoli.

My point is even now that we are fightning in Afganistan(but the end is in sight), we as Americans can still "Blaze new Trails" over here like highways, and highways will help business. Just like it did back in 1804, with the Governments help. We just need Congress to say YES.
