<quoted text>Don't forget to add in the EXTRA $700 billion unaccounted funds for Hurricane Katrina. Who's responsible for that? I don't care what anybody says about Obama.. I'm an independent voter ... but the Bush-Cheney administration left one helluva mess. The smart ones are very, very aware... that both parties dream about each other failing. Neither party wants the other to succeed. The division has the US in a death spiral. As they say, no outside force will bring America down. The division amongst us is doing a speedy job. Those evil, immoral monsters on Capitol Hill should be tossed into the very oceans they've allowed poisoned. Quite frankly, I'm sick of both parties & Capitol Hill. We're toast people, past the point of no return. It's too late. If there is even partial recovery... we wont see it for a loooooong time. IO, is not a crazy man....nor a troll... you simply disagree with him and automatically despise him.
Thank you for a post with a sane, and in fact, reasonable position.

Now prepare for the onslaught because Right Wingers can't allow the reality of their failed policies to be revealed.

<quoted text>Except that $15 trillion did NOT "promote the general welfare" - it trapped people in a cycle of dependence and discouraged a stable family. Now we have 70% of black children being raised without a male authority figure in the home so the only model of male behavior for young boys growing up is the thug on the street. The gang has become the family and you are left with black on black crime that makes inner city black neighborhoods a war zone. 20 innocent children are tragically murdered by a mentally ill young man and Obama's answer is to limit the gun rights of law abiding citizens. Meanwhile, 260 school age children have been killed in Chicago in the last three years and Obama's proposed restrictions would do NOTHING about those stats.[you remember Chicago,- Obama's old stomping ground,where he sat in the pew for 20 years and listened to a race baiting bigot of a preacher who twisted the Bible even better than you do.]

You are still misinterpreting the Bible in an unconscionable manner and you still don't understand the tax code despite numerous attempts to point out your mistakes. Your posts will never persuade the discerning because your willful ignorance is so obvious.
Ironically, my accountant informs me I have a very reasonable understanding if the tax code; and
my friend who is a Catholic Priest, and our minister inform menI have a very informed and unusually thorough knowledge of the Bible, perhaps as a result of having taken undergraduate classes in comparative religions and history classes focused on the Middle East,
perhaps numerous trips to many foreign countries throughout the world where I worked with Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs also helped.

I couldn't agree with you more that the culture of inner cities is counterproductive and creates a downward spiral - but the answer is to invest more in stopping the spiral, not creating permanent underclass in America.

Let's stop wasting a Trillion Dollars a year on the War Department, and, as our competition does, use the money to build schools, hire teachers and mentors; create a culture that respects and rewards education, training, and achievement; and re-establish an attainable upwardly mobile pathway to a better life.

As for dependency:

Do you ever notice we never worry about the destruction of pensions and the resulting dependency class we've created among the elderly who survive on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare Part D.

If our attempts to help the sick and poor among those not yet elderly has resulted in unacceptable dependency for them,
then the dependency among the elderly created by the destruction of pensions and union benefits, and lowered incomes, is 100 times worse.

What do you mean most people have jobs? So who cares if 90 million people can't find a job. You have a job so everything is just fine. 41% of the people that were in the workforce are now unemployed. You find that way better? I would hate to seed what it would be like if you said it was bad.
http://rt.com/usa/jobs-us-employment-welfare-...
thanks for the link. It also shows::

""For now, 58.7 per cent of American adults are working if the actual employment-population ratio is taken into consideration, leaving about 82 million, or almost 41 per cent of people unemployed. Only 8 per cent, however, are even interested in work, leaving 33 per cent of Americans not only jobless — but with no desire for work.

"The ratio expresses more clearly how many people find working to be a 'good or attractive deal,'" Tyler Cowen, economist and director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, adds to CNN.

If the numbers seem drastic, it’s because they are. So rampant in fact is the country’s seeming disregard for work that other just-released statistics show that funding welfare programs for the American population was the most expensive endeavor undertaken in all of Fiscal Year 2011.

Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee released findings this week showing that the government spent roughly $1.03 trillion on welfare programs last year, funding 83 separate efforts to provide assistance to Americans. Days earlier, a separate study out of Capitol Hill revealed that the number of people enrolled to receive federal assistance by way of food stamps has hit a new record high with roughly 47 million US residents.""

“These astounding figures demonstrate that the United States spends more on federal welfare than any other program in the federal budget,” Alabama Sen. Jeff Session writes in a letter provided to The Daily Caller this week.“It is time to restore — not retreat from — the moral principles of the 1996 welfare reform. Such reforms, combined with measures to promote growth, will help both the recipient and the Treasury.”

Why work when the government takes care of you??

Sad to say but there are still some on this forum who have'nt learned their lesson about bush. I never see any form of repentence from these sick minded individuals who have'nt accepted the permanent damage they and their president bush did to our country. Untill they do we will be at the polls every 4 years and remind these sickos that tey wil never puke another reptile o us like thy did in 2000 and 2004. Untill then folks let them whine to each other about Obama.

2014: DEMS BEGIN TO FREAK OVER OBAMACARE CHAOS...

The party has long acknowledged that the Affordable Care Act has its flaws. Their new openness about those flaws comes after Obama’s reelection, which ensured that the law would not be repealed before it’s fully implemented.

But it also comes just ahead of the 2014 election cycle, when vulnerable Democrats in conservative states will have to defend their votes for the health law.

Landrieu is already facing a tough reelection fight next year. And one of the Republicans who has lined up to challenge her, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), is a doctor who still sees Medicaid patients when Congress isn’t in session.

In addition to rank-and-file Democrats who voted for the healthcare law, Republicans this time are hoping to defeat Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.)— who was the primary author of the Affordable Care Act in his position as Finance chairman.

Senate Republicans’ campaign arm attacked Baucus this week as the “ObamaCare architect.”

Flaws in the law’s execution — such as higher premiums or fewer options for small businesses — could be weapons against Baucus.

"People already don't like ObamaCare, but they're really not going to like the tax hikes, mandates, fees, penalties, and added red tape bureaucracy that go info effect over the next eight months. It goes from being an abstract discussion to a real life pain," the National Republican Senatorial Committee said.

<quoted text>
If only Intelligent Design could be elevated to the status of a theory, tell us what does the Theory ID predict, perhaps the unseen and unknown intervention of an unnamed Designer - by the way who is this designer. How can we tell what the Designer did in the past and what is being done today. How we can tell the difference between a designed mutation and one that has occurred due to the environment. Tell us all about the agenda that really isn't religious.
In my opinion, none of your questions have anything to do with the purpose or intent of the theory of Intelligent Design. I am unaware of any attempt to identify the "Designer." The theory is simply an acknowledgement that there is no other theory to explain how the complexities that are apparent in life on this planet could occur by chance. As one scientific philosopher said about the theory of Evolution : "The Theory is "not testable", but "metaphysical." Evolution claims the transition from one species to the next (macroevolution), but cannot explain where the original species came from. Along with the desire for Intelligent Design to be taught, it should be a simple matter of academic integrity that the theory of Evolution be taught as that - a theory. It cannot be proven, it cannot even be demonstrated in the fossil record. Proponents infer it, but cannot "prove" it. The objection to Intelligent Design being taught has far more to do with ideology than any interest in advancing our knowledge of our world and the lifeforms upon it. Present the arguments for and against both theories. That would be in keeping with the purpose of Education, as opposed to Indoctrination.

If you understand the tax code so well, than quit equating the income tax rates to the capital gains rate - it will go a long way toward perhaps eventually restoring your credibility.

The same goes with the Bible and with baptismal liturgies - quit trying to mislead as to what is meant by "support". Spiritual support is the promise given, not material support.

"but the answer is to invest more" - that could be used as a perfect example of Einstein's definition of insanity : "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." The programs established are what are creating a permanent underclass - they must be radically reformed.

Those union pensions that are being destroyed were always unsustainable and are what have lead to communities facing financial ruin if they don't radically change those pension plans. That can be laid at the feet of the unions and the city/county/state governments that agreed to them in the first place.

<quoted text>"Russia and China are making deep investments in modernizing their nuclear arsenal. We are not. In fact, we cannot. The United States closed the pit production facility for the environmentally dangerous business of mass manufacturing warheads. It would cost hundreds of billions of dollars to restart that complex.

Other nations can cut or ramp up. We can only cut.

Congress is beginning to wake up. One of the biggest dangers is the Obama administration’s dismissal of a threat from China, a space-faring country that rejects arms-control negotiations that would lead to inspection of its forces. Amid reports that China may be hiding a vast nuclear arsenal in 3,000-miles of tunnel, the U.S. House Armed Services Committee’s 2013 defense authorization bill requires the Pentagon to conduct competing analyses on what the PRC might be hiding in what is often called the “Underground Great Wall of China."

Yep, let's use common sense:

If any income should get treated favorably its income earned as a result of a man's labor - that incentivizes people to work.

If any income should be taxes at the highest rates it's capital gains - in the history of the world no rational investor ever stopped investing as a result of taxes because something is always better than nothing. There's no need to incentivize investing - it always incentivizes itself.
