If the Republicans keep going the same direction they've been going the last few years they will probably put up a circus clown just to appease their core constituents. Maybe they'll put up a mime so they can avoid the problems they had with Romney - actually telling people their platform.
Well, the woman running for PRESIDENT will HAVE to win. So, the republicans probably won't run much of anyone. I hope they do, but I have my doubts. Of course, if another democrat wins then that will pretty much be it for this country. Oh, well.

Whomever the republicans run, I'll bet they'll know how many states we have. The GAff that will never be surpassed. At least what Romney said was true.

It won't really matter who the Republicans run nor what they say. If a democrat woman runs, she'll have to win or all the government leeches will storm the streets and destroy whatever is left.

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.
I believe that intelligent design can be proven, unfortunately identity theft, makes that difficult while alive.

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??
All by design. Make the people govenment dependent. Take away incentive and then everyone is at the mercy and whims of the government. It's becoming increasingly clear.

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.
CN is just a troll who came crawling back after claiming we weren't smart enough for him, so he was going to another forum. Apparently, he "dazzled" them with his brand of "intellect" just as he has "dazzled" us.*laughing out loud* So, he's back.

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.
Absolutely wrong, the low capital gains rate is to encourage the RISK of investing in a venture that MAY pay off or that MAY fail - thus resulting in the loss of the money RISKED in the investment.

As intelligent as you apparently think you are, you should have determined that by now. Look at whom the republicans ran. SERIOUSLY?????? Another poster pointed that out and I started thinking about it. It made NO SENSE that Obama(with no qualifications to speak of) could possibly win unless he wasn't actually challenged. McCain/Palin(who?) ticket was insane and easily beat. Another loser had to run the second time because Obama had done a TERRIBLE job, but he HAD to be reelected. That would take care of the racial issue EXCEPT under Obama's reign, race relations have regressed by YEARS and just to make it interesting, the classes and parties are more divided than ever.

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.

Libtards don't understand effects & results.

Don't understand how lowering capital gains taxes affect the economy.

Don't understand the double taxation of capital gains and the penalty of long term inflation on certain held capital.

Don't understand the damage that capital taxes does to most middle and low income people.

Don't understand a long term held capital gain,(like land, house, etc) sold after many years of ownership, and taxed in one year at the "now" value of the capital which includes the inflated cost.

Don't understand that government creates a devaluation of currency by creating more fiat money.


they do believe in the following myths;

Lowering capital gains tax rates will not help the economy.

If there is a capital gains tax cut, it should be temporary and it should not be available to all investors.

Cutting capital gains tax rates will cause stock markets to fall.

Capital gains tax cuts benefit the "wealthy" and no one else.

Lowering capital gains tax rates will not lead to more investment.

Government cannot "afford" large and permanent cut in capital gains tax rates.

Capital gains already receive preferential treatment because they are taxed at lower rates than ordinary income.
((Fact: Double-taxation of investment returns and taxing inflation cause capital gains tax rates to exceed tax rates on ordinary income.))

If the government didn't pay these unemployed people off they would be rioting in the streets. All hell would break loose in this country. Funny how angry hungry people can get.

+1 well stated.

I've TRIED to explain this stuff for a couple of years now, the clueless and uneducated just don't get it.

"they do believe in the following myths"
"Capital gains tax cuts benefit the "wealthy" and no one else."

Of the last 6 individual tax returns I prepared, 5 of them had capital gains treatment AND none of the 5 individuals/families had gross income (from wages) over $77K, one of them was around $45K.

To say that capital gains only benefits the wealthy is a great example of the "clueless and uneducated"...

Not true.

Anytime an investor doesn't want to "risk" his money, he puts it in a government insured bank account and the bank "invests" it for him, making it available just as if he had invested it himself;

or

The "investor" buys T-Bills which are secured by the full faith and credit if the American Taxpayer.

One thing that never happens is that the funds are not invested.

So there is never a need to incentivize investors - no matter what they do with their money, it's invested - either directly by them, or indirectly by government insured banks.
