A lot of good points, not being a smart Alec here, it's very difficult to read. It would help greatly if paragraphs were used. Just saying.

OK, I'll take your unwillingness to admit what your party said in 1986 or even defend it as an admission of you knowing what the democrats did was wrong. On taxes for the poor, I thought we were talking about the federal government and federal taxes. I will certainly be more cautious in my assumptions that you understand what we are talking about from now on. Not talking about the umemployed, never was. The non-retirement entitlement society doesn't pay federal income taxes, only sales tax. Yes, you can take advantage of every single tax break the rich take advantage of. All you have to do is set yourself up to make the kind of money they do using the same hard work ethic they used. If you don't want to then that's on you but don't try and push the blame off on someone who had done the work and been successful. We live in America where one can make of themselves whatever they want. On the vacation front, Bushes (both of them) spent $25 million on "vacations" in 8 years.$20million of that was on the cost of using Airforce 1 but we'll count it anyway. Obama on the other hand had spent $57 million on vacations where he didn't work in only 3 years. Maybe it's you who should do the research. If you choose to, the only thing you will find from your liberal sources is that $20 million for Airforce 1 and they will only compare it to Obama's 4 trips to Hawaii costing $4 million each. They convieniently will omit Michelle's trips with and without the girls or the girls trips without the parents. I never mentioned Ireland. Where they vacation is of no concern to me but rather how much those vacations cost us, the hurting tax payers in this terrible economy of Obama's. Just be open minded enough to look at other sources besides ultra-leftwing sources that really make you look bad when you go defending the Obama's. I assumed that you could look at the numbers I gave and tell for yourself that they were minimal. Sorry, I gave you more credit than you deserve. So, I think you must have meant your not angry but rather confused. Wonder what city you live in that expects 60K extra residents? Is that in the next century?

You are absolutely wrong about that. I suggest you look at the IRS rules on a couple filing jointly with one of them on Disability income.

You go past the income threshold, you will definitely pay taxes on a portion of that disability income.

Open minded? That is one thing that you will not find with a liberal.
One common trait that all liberals share is the "Blame Bush" gene. Actually, the "Blame" gene is the dominant gene that controls every liberal so strongly, that it trumps all ability to think rationally and logically.
However, just as dominant as the "Blame" gene is, all liberals ironically share in the absence of the "Accountability/Responsib ility" gene, which is seemingly just as dominant.
Oddly enough, these two traits work together like a fine oiled machine in the mind of a liberal. The strong dominance of both have potential to cause conflict and confusion however, over time, the liberal mind has been able to intertwine and weave these traits so closely together, they have perfected the "Pick and Chose" gene. The traits from this gene have evolved into what we see now in the mind of every liberal...selective memory loss.
Unfortunately for America, the liberal mind has perfected the ability to incorporate these three genes, that they have not only created their own account of jaded history, they also can't process the reality of the present.
Those of us that are left to deal with the contradicting and chaotic mind of the liberal realize what a detriment they are to society...but until the liberal mind can recognize and admit the bondage and turmoil they deal with daily, there is little we can do to help them.
To sum it up...the liberal mind can't remember 1986, because they have spent years blaming others and refusing to take responsibility.
Case in point? Barney the Boob, who tries hard to appear eloquent...but probably needs a refresher course in the correct way to use simplistic grammar such as to, too, and two...their, there, and they're...etc....

So tell us, what did the Democrat party say in 1986 when,

President Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act or other wise know as the Simpson-Mazzoli Act.

Mazzoli was a Democratic representative from Kentucky and Alan K. Simpson was a Republican senator from Wyoming who chaired their respective immigration subcommittees in Congress.
Tell us again how it was the Dem's fault that the bill was a miserable failure, a Bi-Partisan bill sighed into law by President Reagan.

You think maybe the law failed in part because of one tiny clause put into it ;

"affirmative defense" clause in the law that explicitly released employers from any obligation to check the authenticity of workers' documents"

Even though the bill says;

In brief the act:

required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status.

made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.

legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.


Why did Reagan not Veto this tooothless piece of legislation?

That point in time there were not enough Hispanics voting, as they are today, so it could not have been pandering to their race.

I will tell you, it was put in there by the big business and commercial farmers to whom the Republican Party panders to.

I know it costs a lot but Obama does less damage when he is vacationing. Ever notice that Michelle and the kids stay away from him, thus the separate vacations, unless he is going someplace exciting. Even barney's partner spends time with him when he isn't at McD's

You’ve got to be kidding me; the liberals have a “Blame Gene!” You have got to be pulling my leg; the conservatives couldn’t wait for President Obama to take office so they could blame him for the depression they caused, two mismanaged wars and turning booming economy into a plummeting economy while they had the helm the first decade of this land.

The conservatives the tea party ultra kooks have a season pass to “Loony Land” where the ride Sara Palin’s merry-go-round thinking the president was given a magic wand that he can wave and all should be fixed the moment he took office.

The only thing more dominant than their “Blame Gene” is their “Stupid Gene!”

But it is possible I guess the conservatives and tea baggers most definitely have a “Memory Loss” gene and then it would be understandable why they think others are to blame and only they have the answers.

You know as well as I do that the bill never made it out of the house. The only reason congress revisited the issue was because of the backlash by civil rights activist (not republican) and the democratic members in congress. The republicans caved as they do on so many other issues. Make no mistake, the democrats are no less than 5 steps ahead of the republicans in shaping the battlefield of public policy. The republican party and this country are going to die a slow and painful death at the hands of the democrats unless conservatives get their acts together before too much of America is infected by the lie that is liberalsim.

She/he was so embarrassed by THEIR juvenile sock quote, They were compelled to redeem them self by showing THEIR excellent command of Spell and Grammar check.

Which is all good, but in my opinion it takes more brain power to present a plausible argument based on fact.

However those facts escape Dr. "not sure about that, None the less proceeds with another attempt at redemption in a 5,000 word essay on psycho analysis of a Liberal.

What poor Dr. "not sure about that" does not know that THEIR analysis has been debunked by several studies and have published in several publications, such as Psychologytoday, for example.

Interesting, but no, the Democrats are doing nothing but sitting back and watching the tea party destroy the Republican Party. To prove this point we only have look at the most recent loony loser, Iowa Republican Representative Steve King. Add him to the list of Republican/tea party losers; Sara Palin, Rick Perry, Herman Cane, the lovable Witch Kristine O’Dodonnel and the multitude of recent others, yep, the Republicans will be a regional party at best.

No I do not know that, and neither do you. The bill was sign into law by Presiden Reagan on November 6, 1986.
