hey riccardo......
I dont consider returning to clinton era tax rates for wealthy as being a "hard tax" for anyone who earns that kinda loot.
the wealthy DID FINE in the 90's as I remember.
after all, right now,?? the wealthy actaully pay an average of about 16 percent of their income in federal taxes....after their ninja tax lawyers get through with their jobs.....
I agree when you own lots of other assets?? their are all kinds of other taxes incurred........but you own stuff, so you are supposed to be able to pay for it.
so if we return to the billybob rates of the 90's??
the wealthy will actually only be paying about 3% more of their income to the IRS.
but it amounts to hundreds of billions.
mitt/rand proposal to lower taxes AND pay down the deficit??/
while adding two hundred billion dollars to the defense budget AND not compleatlt slashing the crap out of social programs??
is compleat fairy dust math.....
like billy bob himslef said??
it just doesnt add up.
you cannot do all those things, and anyone who believes you can(wthout borrowing it from china as they are so fond of saying on the stump) is a compleat idiot.
math is math....
just like you cannot change the fact that middle class demand is what comprises "markets"
In the 90s Canada was not offering the rich and business 15% max rate on taxes.......
Mexico was not offering 20 years of ZERO taxes......

In todays global market the USA must compete to keep the companies and jobs.......

What would Google lose by moving to Canada and saving a billion dollars per year in taxes if oslama raises the taxes on the rich and corporations?????

So you are happy with the requirement the SCOTUS put on marriage being a "right"-
Essential to our existence and survival?
They didn't do that.
And people can exist and survive just fine without it.

Like Christians who object to interracial marriage.
If I were to marry and some fundie photographers quoted Gen 1:4 to me, I'd be more than happy to take the hundreds to thousands of dollars some other place. But, I'd still sue them.

Am I supposed to be hurt by that ? lol What a moron you must be in real life. AIDS was first documented in the homo community, a notorious drug using community, to be sure. It was the bisexuals who wanted it both ways that spread it to the heterosexual community, which is the majority, explaining why now, 30 years later, it is spread into the heterosexuals, thus producing the "vast majority" of which you so glibly speak. Idiot. Y'all gave it us. Wish the AIDS had stayed with the junkies and poofs and never crossed over into our ranks. Thanks to the bi's for that.....
Hey stupid,check out the stats on Africa and AID's and it proves exactly what a lying imbecile you are! The fact is it was heterosexuals who first ate contaminated monkey meat which then began the epidemic! It's truly amazing just how ignorant and outright stupid you are on the subject! Here are a couple of links that prove you to be the consummate LIAR that you are! But what the F does AID's have to do with the topic of the thread oh great ignorant one? Nothing! Educate yourself,if that's possible with a bigoted pin head like you!

HERE IS ONE......

is A 3% rise in real taxation(for the wealthy) going to drive all those businesses to canada??

I mean, its freaking cold there...

and mexico?? I know it is nice where you are?? but that is NOT the case in the north...

businesses go to other countries to take advantage of cheap labor....

it is WAY more of an incentive for moving than JUSt lax regulation or lower taxation....

obama is a master!!

he will get reelected and then force your party to vote for a middle class tax cut that doesnt include renewing the bush tax cuts for the wealthy.......which really is only a 3 percent real raise in taxation!! did the wealthy do that bad in the 90's.??

didnt grover norquist mandate that you guys do that???
or is that just tax cuts for millionaires??

Actually, it had nothing to do with drug use and regardless of where it might have been labeled to have started, the fact is that HIV/AIDS has been in this Country since the 1940's, if not longer.

Besides, this argument has nothing to do with the right to marry for Same-Sex Couples mainly because we don't prevent Straights from marrying just because they might be HIV/AIDS positive!!!

White House records reveal that the moderator of last night's vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News. On at least one other occasion, Raddatz visited the White House. According to records, that visit was on December 18, 2009. The reason for that visit is not known, though her meeting appears to have taken place in the Old Executive Office Building, and not the West Wing.
Before last night's debate, Raddatz came under scrutiny after the Daily Caller revealed she had attended President Barack Obama's wedding in 1991 with her now ex-husband, Obama administration official Julius Genachowski.
The whole debate was a set up. Biden seemed to know the questions and knew he was allowed to interrupt and talk over Ryan, and Raddatz changed the topic or didn't press Biden on issues like the cover up in Libya.
How far up your butt do you have to go to pull that kind of conspiracy out?
