the republicans have had 246 filibusters in the last 4 years to stop everything from S 2237 small business jobs and tax relief act , to bills for helping vets. with jobs and health care , I guess voting would help people too much ...

Hypocrisy alert: Obama used tax loopholes in 2011 to lower his tax bill
posted at 10:48 am on April 14, 2012 by Howard Portnoy

How sincere was the president when he complained that the current system is so unfair that he, a rich guy, gets to “keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income” while other parents struggle to send their kids to college? Suffice it to say that he wasn’t sufficiently bothered to resist helping himself to a loophole in the tax code that decreased his taxable income in 2011 by nearly $50,000. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

President Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.

The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.

"Charles Woods, the father Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the publically broadcast memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya)."
“When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods,“he kind of just mumbled, you know,‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere,‘I’m really sorry, you know, that you’re son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type,‘I’m sorry.’”
"Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”
“It just didn’t feel right,” he says of his encounter with the commander in chief.“And now that it’s coming out that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening,” Woods says, he wants answers on what happened—and why there was no apparent effort to save his son’s life."
“Well, this is what Hillary did,” Woods continues.“She came over and, you know, did the same thing—separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand. And she did not appear to be one bit sincere—at all. And you know, she mentioned that the thing about, we’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video. That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that.”

Throw these dishonorable bums out.
I heard the call that Charles Woods made to the Lars Larson radio show, Mr Woods called in unsolicited to relate the demeanor of the president and secy of state and the empty condolences given to this father at a moment that no parent should endure, the death of a child. This fathers' loss should sear the soul of any American, but not these two. Clinton and obama are feckless, shameless cowards who had nothing to offer this father at the loss of his son, but to lie to him. I mourn this fathers' loss, and I mourn for a once great nation that is being looted by vandals.

Romney's taxes were paid on investments. Investments were already taxed to begin with. Then he pays 14%. Obama is taxed on income. There's more to it than just the "simple" statement that you made. Obama thinks that people who don't/won't work, should be taken care of by people who do work. He is for socialism. Romney is for capitalism and balancing the budget. We need an economist, not a TAKER!
Just to clear up something.
Yes the money that was invested was taxed and does NOT get taxed again, the div. that money brings in are taxed and it the stock goes up ONLY the amount the stock increased is income and gets taxed.
The Money he invested does NOT get taxed again.
I don't know if you have somebody do your taxes for you , IF you do then ask them.

They brought back the 4 year old posts where you said vaccinations cause autism and a P-3 plane was shot down by North Korea and Obama's inaugural was Feb 20th.

This 64 year old lunatic is really stupid so I'll post it once.

You are taxed on the money you make and then when you invest it, the money is taxed again if you get a dividend and it's also taxed if you get a capital gain. Some people say it's double taxation on their money.

Obama wants to double theser taxes.

Tbird is a foodstamp loser with aq 34 yr old kid in a retard home tha we have to pay for so he's wants Obama of course.

The 2 fags we have here want Obama because Democrats love the queers.

That makes up 90% of Topix posts.

I think Obama is decent, honest, and open.. He answers questions openly and honestly... He did what he said he would do. He is trying to give us health care and options. Our system now is not working. All companies should pay the same percentage of taxes.
If we, as a nation, don't stop all the greed, the lack of decency and morality and ethics, then we are already dead.
But we need someone to blame for the situation we find ourselves in so you all blame Obama..
Me, I think Obama is our only hope, and only if each of us changes our own way of thinking and stop thinking about only ourselves and begin to consider us as a whole humanity, then maybe we'll have a chance. Otherwise there is no hope for the human race.

No one wants to get involved in anything today, so all the wrongs continue. We have pedophiles in our school system whose salaries we are paying because the schools don't want to lose their "school of excellence" reputation.. wake up.. we are protecting the pedophiles, the crooks, and the evil men, and we will pay for this, you can count on it.

JIM I would have thought a person like you that has MILLIONs invested in stock would know that ONLY the amount the stock increases or the Dividends the stock earns are taxed.
You are teying to tell people out here that the orig. investment is taxed again when you sell the stock and it isn't
ONLY the Capital gains [ increase in the price of the stock from ythe time you bought it and sold it ] and any dividends the stock earns are taxed.
And IF you sell a stock at a loss you can take a deduction for the amount of money you lost on that investment.
But YOU being the MILLIONAIRE that buys and sells stock all the time should know that.
If you didn't then you should get a diff. tax person.

Well I find that a little offensive, but personal FEELINGS aside, I'll shoot you some facts. I am retired, FULLY retired, at 40 years old. On that retirement I am above the median income for the town that I retired to. I have free medical for life, as well as family medical for $400 per year, and that's FREE prescriptions and NO co-pay. I have 2 degrees, for free, ZERO money out of pocket. I am tax exempt for local taxes (land), I receive free vehicle registration, and hunting/fishing licenses for $5. I get free admission to all state/federal park and commissary priviledges (meat is $2 PER POUND cheaper than anywhere YOU'LL find). On top of that there are "perks". You know, free ski passes, Steelers and Yankees tickets, movies at the theater, but I'm sure you get those too. All in all, I don't FEEL stupid. But since I just hunt, fish, and golf (oh ya, for free) all day, I don't get around people as much as you do at your work to compare "stupid"!
Good for you,for telling that ignorant bastard off.Him and scum like teddy r,never think the military stupid,when there's a danger to our country.But when they're feeling safe,their true feelins for the military come out.Parker was probably declared 4f,and hates the military for it.And teddy-peddy was too yellow.

You are so blind to the facts. You should see the movie 2016. How can you say that a President that has run our nat'l debt over 5 trillion in 4 years is our only hope? You talk about people blaming Obama, which they should, well what do you think about Obama blaming Bush?
The US GDP has taken 10 years to grow by $5 trillion dollars, yet under Obama the national debt ceiling has grown by $5 trillion in 40 months!!! Talk about spending beyond your means.

Do you really think that our country is doing well, and will get better under Obama??? ludicrous!!!

Its like someone who is on a $50,000 a year salary and asking their bank for a $10 million dollar limit on their credit card.

The Obama administration has added more debt in these past 40 months, than the US government did in its first 219 years of being a republic. Again quite staggering really.

Jim says he is a millionare and has a lot of money invested in stocks and does " day trading" I would have thought he would know the money he paid for the stock is not taxed anain when he sells a stock at a higher price than he paid for it .
He only pays taxes on the diff. between what he paid for the stock and what he sells it for and tax on any div. he gets when he owns the stock.
See he is so stupid he doesn't understand that the div. and the money he makes from the sale of his stock over and above what he paid for it is new income and that is all that gets taxed, NOT the money he paid for the stock in the first place, He really should talk to his tax guy.
Wouldn't you think a MILLIONARE like him that trades in stocks day in and day out would know this?

Wrong.

Earnings are taxed once at the corporate level, when the company is taxed on its earnings.

Then distributions of those earnings to shareholders are taxed A SECOND TIME as dividend income.

If the earnings are retained by the company and not distributed, increasing share value, the shareholder who sells shares is taxed A SECOND TIME on the resulting capital gain.

Either way, investment income IS TAXED TWICE, once at the corporate level and again at the individual shareholder level.

Right.

No - Obama and Biden just kill US boys in Afghanistan. 1500 dead American kids in Afghanistan under Obama's command - QUADRUPLING the body count under Bush.

Provide the verbatim quotes of Romney's "warmongering," with sources cited. I say you're a lying azzwhole.

Cite any post, by Topix post number, in which I have expressed anything but gratitude and the highest respect for the US military - because again I say you're a yellow-bellied lying azzwhole.

Finally, my military service record is none of your business, and irrelevant. It's been my experience that those - like you ya yellow skunk - that constantly blather on about their military service - never in fact served, or they'd display some concept of honor.

You're dismissed, punk.
