Good Point,,,,,,,,,,

"For instance, the Department of Interior’s new controls on deep-water oil drilling may cost the industry $180 million, but one oil spill like that caused by Deepwater Horizon could cost the industry $16.3 billion. Some of the administration’s rules, like those governing coal ash, will actually help create thousands of jobs."

You really think the Bush tax cuts led to Obama's recession?
Then again, you do think that removing Billions in revenue doesn't hurt commerce.

Here I go again,am I a sucker or a liar?
"In the last 12 months through the end of September, the cost range of new regulations is estimated to be $8 billion to $9 billion, a decrease from 2010, according to non-partisan Government Accountability Office reports analyzed by Bloomberg…"

"The record [cost of regulations] came in 1992 under George H.W. Bush when that total hit $20.9 billion in current dollars. In the last year of Ronald Reagan’s term it was $16 billion in today’s dollars".

thanks, just trying to talk some common sense to some people is worse than pulling teeth, i honestly do not see how some people think the world is ran or the government is ran the way they do... i mean it amazes me every single time i read one of their posts... and just when you think they get the point they are farther away then when you first started the conversation...you would think after what george bush did people would wake up to the world and be tuned in to what is going on in the world around them not just what is going on in their town... because i for one would not want to be one left in the dark again.

The "they" is the millionaires in America. The UK has, in the past few years, raised the tax rate on millionaires to 50%. The result? The number of millionaires in the UK went from 16000 to 6000 and the revenue the UK gets is less than they had before the new tax rate. This might be a new concept to you but people will protect their financial well being by doing whatever it takes. Even if it means moving to another country that is more tax friendly. If you think it won't happen in America, your crazy. The argument that companies will just stay in America and let the goernment tax them to death simply because they are patriotic sounds great but reality and the P&L statements won't allow it. I had this argument with Barney so you can go back and look at that but, in short, we consumers are the reason any company moves over seas. You look at two "identical" items, one made in the USA (the more expensive) and the other in China (the less expensive). The moment you choose to buy the cheaper one you have told both manufacturers that the most important factor in your decision is price so you shouldn't be suprised when the American companies moves some or all of it's manufacturing operations overseas. They are simply giving you what you asked for. A cheaper price. If every consumer bought American made products, no matter what, then you couldn't produce enough space for all the companies that would try to get into our country so they could sell products with the "Made in the USA" sticker on them.

Funky feet and smelly shoes can lead to a lack of friends and a huge social hurdle that can alienate you whether you like it or not. So form a plan of attack to freshen smelly shoes so that you can save yourself the constant expense of replacing your footwear and replacing friends.

Question, then why, given that the Bush tax cuts put taxes on the rich at a all time low, is this already happening in the good old USA?

I have found that your breath overcomes the odor of my feet, no one notices my feet when you are around. It has been stated that you smell like you have been chewing on someone's socks, never realized they were mine.

That is the reason that I know you don't live in the real world, I am paying in excess of four hundred a week in federal income tax and you think I should pay more ( we is my wife and I combined ). I do believe that you want to penalize me because I am willing to work, have chose to make intelligent life choices and have invested wisely. I too worked at McD's but that was a temporary job in high school, didn't make a career out of it. I guess I just set my goals higher than you, but then I was raised to believe that I wasn't owed anything by anyone.

Here we are again, Are you a sucker or a liar?

"You really think the Bush tax cuts led to Obama's recession"

What was the date the "Obama's recession" begin?

The National Bureau of Economic Research, an independent group of economists, released a statement Monday saying economic data now clearly point to the economy turning higher last summer. That makes the 18-month recession that started in December 2007 the longest and deepest downturn for the U.S. economy since the Great Depression.

The NBER said it "did not conclude that economic conditions since that month have been favorable or that the economy has returned to operating at normal capacity." Rather, it decided that June was when the economy hit bottom, and that it has been slowly but steadily growing since then.

"Economic activity is typically below normal in the early stages of an expansion, and it sometimes remains so well into the expansion," said the NBER.

And yet, with your wife's extremely sensitive sense of taste, you continue to eat what I ate the day before.

Tomorrow you will have Nutrella on toast for breakfast, Kentucky's Best ham sandwiches with pickle for lunch and whatever's for my supper.

You were not that far off Redd, and I will tell you why.

Ever now and then he enjoys a cheap cigar, and blows a few smoke rings out his ass, getting nicotine stains on his draws.

As he tries to hide his smoking from his wife, he removes those stains the best way he knows how.

So you see Redd, those are nicotine stains on his teeth from his draws.

Yep, I think we had you two figured right all along, what most of us find to be disgusting you two discus with glee. Says a lot about you, but then everyone says a lot about you, thanks for reinforcing it. I just can't be that liberal, will stick to my conservative values, you two continue your practice of scatology, even fantasize about getting others to join in, just don't expect us to actually do it, you have your fantasy world, we inhabit the real one.
