Looks like might have to be State. Said with federal cuts coming states will have to raise taxes to make up for loss of federal funds. But it must be the correct thing to do "THE MESSIAH & HIS MAJIC TELEPROMPTER CAN DO NO WRONG.

Wake me up when "THE MESSIAH" decides to do the job he was elected to do. Remember with 53 senators the Democrats control the senate thus With his "MAJIC TELEPROMPTER THE MESSIAH" is President thus they control 2/3 of the goverment. I will say Even with the results of 2008 election when had 59 Senators to 41 republicans and 257 representatives to 178 Republicans all that was done was Democrats worked at getting reelected.

I never said the GOP accomplished anything. I asked how could they when "THE MESSIAH & DEMOCRATE" Senate are 2/3 of goverment. Or after 2008 they "THE MESSIAH SENATE & HOUSE" were in control of White house Senate & House. If you would like "CURRENT EVENTS" After the 2008 election debt went up 3 times as fast as when Bush was President Reported now at 100% of GNP. Unemployment over 9% have faith bet you it goes well above 10% with the great Democrat leadership in Washington D C

What??????????
2/3 of Government you say????? Now don't you think it's a tad bit unconstitutional for the senate to act without the house??? More bullshit from the Phd of Bullshit, Dr McNutt....

"After 2008"????? Do you realize that they will be digging through the rubble left by hurricane BUSH for probably another 25 years and you expected immediate results in 2009???? You're outta your fcking mind McNutt.... Remember all of the secrecy of Bush and Cheney or has your memory lapsed into a comatose state Duhhhhhh???
Billions in cash went "Poof" in the sands of Iraq and Afghanistan without any fcking accountability, but that's okay, what's a few billion of tax payer loot.... Debt going up 3 times as fast as Bushes is also more Bullshit Dr McNutt... That debt was propelled by the Bush era tax cuts and his open line of credit for the Pentagon... You want figures McNutt???? If you subtract all of Bush's shit, the debt would be standing at around 1.4 trillion... From 2001-2006 more than half of the federal debt came from Bush tax cuts, 33% came from defense spending and only 10% came from Medicare and Social Security, programs the GOP loves to beat down while allowing the rich to get richer while pissing on the little man.... As it stands right now, Hurricane Bush will cost the taxpayers an additional "7 TRILLION DOLLARS" by 2019.... Now how do you propose the Dems handle this debt from your glory boy and other GOP members who seem to think you merely shit into a hat and wait for it to turn to gold?????

Forget the GNP, lets go with the GDP shall we, since the GNP can also be fueled by foreign interest which is also something you can't fcking comprehend.....
The GOP is totally against extending unemployment benefits but all in favor of extending tax cuts for the wealthy.... Tax cuts for the wealthy contribute to the GDP a mere 50 cents to the dollar while unemployment compensation contributes $1.75 to the GDP... "NOW ISN'T THAT ODD MCNUTT"..........

Yep, as long as those looney tunes are in control of the house, look for higher unemployment figures from the gang who ran on a JOBS JOBS JOBS agenda... The GOP JOBS BILL is a total piece of work McNutt.... Leave it to the GOP's to create a Jobs bill which eliminates 2 million jobs... Are they all Polish or like you with lack of knowledge about macroeconomic fck ups???? GOP theory, Oh yea, here's our problem causing all this havoc in our economy, Medicaid, lets trash it, fck those poor people, let them steal the money like we do!!!!! These fcking idiots keep shooting themselves in the foot in hopes it won't hurt as much on the second third and fourth time around.....

I like what you said. Now answer this if what Bush did was so bad why did not "THE MESSIAH" with a super Majority from 2008-2009 do something?{ONE} he liked what was done or {TWO} Even with his "MAJIC TELEPROMPTER" and Majority leader Pelosi in House plus Majority leader Reid in the Senate the three were to incompent. The results from 2010 election might show what people think. Lets give "THE MESSIAH" for keeping the war going. Remember he could have done what was done in Vietnam cut off funding. Or again was 08-09 to incompent to get 50% plus one democrat to back this policy?

Okay airhead, I guess Beck and Limbaugh and company forgot to report this one also...
Let us return to March 17th of this year McNutt and as always your boys of the house have spoken for the American people by voting AGAINST withdrawing troops, 222 of them to be exact which is probably why they added all of those BILLIONS of BUCKS to the war when they held the country hostage last week.... Your GOP boys club can be described by an old saying, "Men learn little but forget much"... Fits them to a tee!!!!!!!!!! Polls show that 80% of the country want the troops out and agree with Obama wanting to start cutting back on the troops BUT the GOP feels that corporations like Halliburton have not made enough money yet to support their re-election efforts....

Keep bringing on the bullshit McNutt and I'll double down your ass every time you touch that keyboard...

So you think with a swipe of a magical wand we bring all of our troops home!!!!! Sure thing Dilbert.......... Like Vietnam we just pack up and fck the gains that have been made these last 2 years and who gives a shit that Bush blew up what little infrastructure they had... That's an open invitation to any extremist group in the world to move in the minute we move out....
Top military people have already advised Obama about what will likely happen in the event of an immediate withdrawal... You can't trust Pakistan or Iran, there is still heat from India about Pakistani rebels and Nukes... India is the largest contributor to helping rebuild their infrastructure,$1.5 Billion, and you can't rule out Chinese interest in Afghanistan because they have been training security forces for future copper mining and the construction of a railway system in the north.... Now if you think that all of these interest are going to play nice with the current drug lords, you're outta your fcking mind....

The US (CIA) promised them all sorts aid once the Russians were forced out and they received SHIT.. Bush promised them all sorts of aid and they got SHIT.... Now you expect Obama to follow suit by grabbing his marbles and leaving them with SHIT... Should I remind you what happened when the CIA left them with SHIT and Pakistan looted all of the military aid, CASH and WEAPONS????
The results of an immediate withdrawal would be the same as nuking the entire country..... This isn't a question of veto power you dumb ass, it's a question of ethics....

You're a good republican McNutt and I can tell by that ME ME ME attitude of yours........

Glad you mentioned Vietnam I remember when Democrats cut off all funding to Vietnam. So from 2009-2010 when controlled all three branches of goverment why did they keep war going. Lets get back to tax hikes where is all the money to come from the low Obama unemployment the Obama debt. Did you see the results on stock market after the signing of the OBAMA DEBT PLAN. Remember he signed it so Obama & Democrats own it

What Obama signed was a request to the GOP to stop holding the country hostage for political gain in 2012... The GOP has thrown 275 fillibusters into the faces of the democrats in the last two congressional terms, the highest in congressional history.... Now if you think that the American people can't see through all of this bullshit the Tea Baggers put together, you're mistaken.... Obama was forced into signing that piece of shit and if you think the stock market acted crazy after that, you can't even comprehend what the "WORLD" market would have done had the country defaulted....

Now as for the war in Afghanistan let me say that our country is not controlled under a dictatorship where as Obama can simply get on his Ranger Rick radio and tell everybody there to jump on a plane and come home.... That is not democracy McNutt so stop believing "Rush" and the boys... You have a shit load of American civilian contractors in that country working on their infrastructure and they have invested billions as have other countries.... Obama unlike Nixon and Johnson is listening to, and taking advice from the people put in charge, namely Petraeus to execute an exit plan, which they have done..... They have also been in talks with the Taliban in case your Mickey Mouse AM Radio didn't report it.....

Hold the country HOSTAGE?If GOP was doing such a bad job how do you explain the results of 2010 election? Sure must be reaching a lot of people. To leave Afgjhanistian jump on a plane? Do you mean like when the US left Vietnam by running to the roof of the embassy roof. Advice from Petraeus do you mean the General when he was before congress the Democrats had a fullm page add calling him General Betrayus & call him a liar. Thank you for reminding me this is a good example of the power of "THE MESSIAH" with his blessing General Petraeus went from war criminal to military genius. Now answer {ONE} if the the debt bill was so bad why did not the Dems with such great leadership in the whitehouse fight as had for what they wanted as they did for Obama care.{TWO} why did not President Messiah & Teleprompter reader work as hard on debt bill as he did making picks in Basketball final Four.

You realize you Republican piggies now own part of this economy, and will own it in 2012? Gonna be hard to blame it all on the liberals and Democrats. Real hard. I wouldn't be shocked if Republican piggies find themselves outdoors, squealing.

When will the rich start paying taxes? When will the rich hire someone who isn't Chinese or Mexican? When will the rich decide they're American and play for the right team? Never? Time to go, piggies.

the Obummer fans are unable to argue the point that he resided over the only credit downgrade in US history. It is his fault and no one elses. We all saw it coming for a long time and he simply continued his slide on the slippery slope. S&P Chair shows the reason for the downgrade as an unwillingness of the Obama administration to cut the needed spending to put the country back on a prosperous path.
Last month alone saw over ten thousand new government regulations put in place. More and more reasons for the small business owners(like me) to hold onto his money.
If he is unable to turn this around, which I see no way he can, it will be a MAJOR issue in election debates from which he has no direction to run. I would call the downgrade a gift to romney. hey alexa i think pez is talking to you!
