You haven't posted anything worth responding to you. Asking you a serious question about politics or economics would be like asking my housekeeper about gastrointestinal surgery, she would have an idea, but not a clue (she would be less gassy than you) but she would be honest enough to admit her limitations. As you will eventually will learn in life is that a person that only posts one side of an issue isn't interested in facts, he is just making talking points. Look to Old Army and Redd, you know which side they are on but they are not blinded bt any particular ideology.

Looks like the taxes are set to go up for those making less than $250k per year. The first of many hidden fees/taxes came out about Obamacare. A $63 pre-existing condition fee for everyone having a pre-existing condition. Will those making less than $250k not have to pay this? I think not. Oh well, I guess poliicians are supposed to break promises. Obama sure has.

This is from a friend of mine in N.C. and he's pretty much up on all financies. I started cashing in all my bonds today and going to empty out all my bank deposits before Jan. 1, 2013. What little you get in interest, you will turn around and pay it back in taxes.








His plan is to sneak it in after the November election to keep it under the radar. This is a 1% tax on all transaction at any financial institution i. e. Banks, Credit Unions, extra. Any deposit you make, or move around within your account, i. e. transfer to, will have a 1% tax charged. If your pay check or your social Security or whatever is direct deposit, 1% tax charged. If you hand carry a check in to deposit, 1% tax charged, If you take cash in to deposit, 1% tax charged. This is from the man who promised that if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax.
Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn.

This was a proposal that was made back in 2004 and would have replaced the income tax, it has never gotten anywhere. I like conspiracy theories as much as anyone, especially the anti-Obama ones, but this one lacks credence.

WOW, what a terrible low-down disgusting trick .

A person with pre-ext. condition has to pay $63.00 to get thousands of dollars in coverage, that they other wise could not have gotten.

This could be the only tax they were ever happy to pay in their life'

Why don't you ask some diabetics or people with heart disease, cancer, if they would mind paying the $63.00

America Commits Suicide

Here lies the United States of America
Born: July 4, 1776
Died: November 6, 2012

The Will of the People Has Spoken, and America Died

The End of an Empire

Our Constitutional Republic died a peaceful death on November 6, 2012. Having reached the point of no return in a comatose state after years of progressive and illegal immigration assaults, the fabric of conservative society is now completely unraveled and Uncle Sam’s America is no more.

The United States of America is now relegated to the dust bin of history as a “has been” empire. The Shining City on the Hill, the hope of so many millions since July 4, 1776, no longer exists. What rises from the ashes is a country that few of us will recognize, like, or learn to accept submissively.

After 236 years of existence, a new country emerges today, run by secular progressives who rejected our Constitution, what we stand for, and who we are as a nation. The Supreme Court will be forever altered after its last conservative members will be replaced by the liberal academics who call themselves “progressives.” The rule of law will be implemented by Executive Orders, making Congress irrelevant.

The communist motto “Forward” that resonated with so many ignorant Americans will plunge us into many years of darkness from which we will never be able to recover. We have proven our Founding Fathers right, they did give us a Constitutional Republic and we were unable to maintain it.

The forces of the failed communist fundamental transformation that were driven underground in many places around the world, resurfaced with a vengeance in the United States and have now taken over.

How long we will still have freedom of speech, movement, assembly, and control of our private property remains to be seen. Faith and churches will be driven underground; allowing secularism to prosper and take deep roots among the progressives whose God is Mother Earth.

The welfare-dependent Americans, unions, and illegal aliens have chosen for the rest of us the dark path of serfdom to big government and to socialist utopia.

Who would have guessed that the very people who were complaining that the government is not extricating them from disaster or giving them the help they needed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, would vote for the very politicians who turned their backs on needy Americans after the lights went dark when the political photo opportunities ended?

Who would have guessed that Americans were as ignorant and irresponsible as to choose fiscal destruction over fiscal sanity for their children and grandchildren, secularism and communism over faith, dependence over personal responsibility and self-reliance?

Americans have been protesting for the last four years the dismal state of the economy and the direction of our country, the corruption of our politicians, and the loss of personal and economic freedom.

Rallies in support of conservatism overwhelmed venues for Mitt Romney while rallies for our bumbling President became scarcer and scarcer. Yet, miraculously, at the ballot box, our President won all over the country.

We lost seats in the Senate. Americans chose liars and cheats to be their Senators and Representatives, rejecting those who protected the Constitution. The candidate from Massachusetts who claimed direct American Indian lineage to Pocahontas is now a Senator, having defeated Scott Brown. Representative Allen West lost his seat by a narrow margin to the infamous Wasserman Schultz from Florida.

Americans chose high unemployment, reduction of our military, communist indoctrination of their children, and loss of personal freedoms unlike we have never seen before

I think they comprehend just fine,

it is their denial of the facts, and lack of knowledge to defend their position,

I cannot wait for us to plunge off the fiscal cliff. I have a modest amount saved and am self employed. The damage to the economy will belong to the socialist in charge. The people dependent on the goverment will suffer. Obama is trying to run this Nation based on the model California has put in place. Now mind you California is broke, busted, over and done. Gov. Moonbeam himself has said they are buying time and waiting on a miracle (governemnt bailout). Taxing the wealthy and big bussiness has never ever worked. They just lay off people. So buckle up folks, we are heading off the cliff. We will have a depression that will last a few yars then we can re-build from that. A slim majority voted in November(52 to 48% is far from a mandate) to embrace the cliff. You ask for it Amerca, you got it. Hold on!

i would have to disagree with you .. i have posted alot of questions and reports that have not yet been responded too when they were presented... i have disproved every thought any repblican has posted on here with no credible responses from any of them, including you... so it is ok for you to post your opinion on here but then when disproven with facts it's not ok to respond?... that makes no sense.... noone has presented or asked a serious political question in the republican party on here yet i have responded to every one with lack of effort in return...which means when i prove you wrong with the truth there's nothing left to say except the demonizing and name bashing you guys seem to only do on here... and i have said and will continue to say i will give credit where credit is due.. just like when the republicans actually proposed a counter offer to the presidents plan ... even though it's the same plan that romney initially ran on and will not hold up .. i still congratulated them ...and only people on here that keep posting one side are republicans saying the same thing then saying i'm wrong and not backing their ways of thinking up with credible sources.. i don't care whether it's republican or democrat or independant .. not one credible source.... because everyone back there that posts on here either gets their info from family members or fox or coworkers... and you guys keep saying talking points like you know what the hell your talking about .. you guys are providing the talking points by posting lies.. i inturn prove them wrong with facts and every single republican on here keeps saying i'm providing the talking points.. i don't get it!! look the stuff up .. if your too ignorant to use google and search for the facts yourself then maybe you should rethink your way of thinking... and i am not a conformist and do not care what redd nor old army thinks or does... i only know what i think and my thought process is one of common sense... i take the facts that are presented and historical evidence and come to an informed conclussion.. it's not hard .. the only problem with republicans is when presented with the truth and facts to support the truth .. they still turn a blind eye and believe only their way of thinking.. you cannot put blame on the other person when it is in fact your party and you as an individual who is wrong and have been proven wrong time and time again.. leaders within your own party are even seeing this and are voicing their opinions.. even newt gingrich and limbaugh are realizing this ... so go ahead and listen to what your peers and fox news tell you becuase as long as you keep living in a fantasy land the only people you are hurting are yourselves.

lol your a joke .. there is no precondition fee where did you hear this nonsense your family and friends? lol is that not discrimination by singleing out pre exising conditions? but then you may say well what about the rich having to pay the tax is that not discrimination?.. no there is no such thing as discrimination against greed...and no like i have said time and time again taxes below 250,000 dollars a year will stay the same for another year at least... so your ignorant way of thinking has not place in a sensible discussion.

lol if your talking about the financial tranistion tax then my friend you are poorly misguided and ill informed... "The US imposed a financial transaction tax from 1914 to 1966. The federal tax on stock sales of 0.1 per cent at issuance and 0.04 per cent on transfers. Currently, the US has a very minor 0.0034 per cent tax which is levied on stock transactions. The tax, known as Section 31 fee, is used to support the operation costs of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In 1998, the federal government collected $1.8 billion in revenue from these fees, almost five times the annual operating costs of the SEC.[42 that is the only relivance your post that your talking about and there will be NO 1% charge on anyone making transactions in the way you proposed .. so quit beleiving every so called friend you have and look the facts up for yourself before you start taking someones word as truth.

You are just as anxious as she was to jump onto any article that would justify your cause. Try just once to post both sides of an issue, you might find an actual solution is possible. You cannot penalize the productive to solve all the nation's problems, eventually you and Barney would have to get a job to support the country and we know that isn't going to happen.
