As intelligent as you apparently think you are, you should have determined that by now. Look at whom the republicans ran. SERIOUSLY?????? Another poster pointed that out and I started thinking about it. It made NO SENSE that Obama(with no qualifications to speak of) could possibly win unless he wasn't actually challenged. McCain/Palin(who?) ticket was insane and easily beat. Another loser had to run the second time because Obama had done a TERRIBLE job, but he HAD to be reelected. That would take care of the racial issue EXCEPT under Obama's reign, race relations have regressed by YEARS and just to make it interesting, the classes and parties are more divided than ever.
I suspect you actually believe this gobblygook.

Course it's certainly more soothing than accepting the fact that the rightward track of the GOP had finally gone too far, so far that even a black man could become president (twice). Can you imagine the nation electing a black man (twice), it MUST be the result of unseen powers that be, any rational explanation is simply too frightening.

There wouldn't be ANY racial animosity if everyone were white, it's all those OTHER folks that create the racists. Tell us the second verse of the sad refrain.

Good grief, are you truly that ignorant? Any time someone sells their house for a profit that is a capital gain...
Tell us, how often do the majority of home sellers sell their home - daily, weekly, yearly. Would you term such sellers as Active Investors with excess capital seeking investment opportunities. The high turnover rate for this type of investment is what led to the establishment of 1031 Exchanges, to capture all those gains that were so easily acquired.

^^^^And Obama himself acknowledged in an interview with Charlie Gibson that decreasing taxes increased the amount of revenue that the government took in. He ADMITTED it. But he then said, but Charlie its a matter of fairness. That should have been headlines everywhere. It didn't matter that lowering taxes would mean more money in the government coffers with which to fund programs - it was more important to take money from the "rich" than it was to have more money to "help people." There's your dogmatic Left for you.
Too bad it ain't so...

http://mediamatters.org/research/2008/04/18/g...
During the April 16 Democratic presidential debate, co-moderator and ABC World News anchor Charles Gibson asserted of capital-gains tax cuts that "in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased. The government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down." Gibson later asserted that "history shows that when you drop the capital-gains tax, the revenues go up." In fact, Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, asserted in an April 17 American Prospect blog post addressing Gibson's statements: "[T]he evidence that a capital gains tax cut raises revenue is rather dubious, since most of the apparent increase is likely due to timing: investors delay selling stock when they know a tax cut is imminent. After the cut takes effect, they then declare their gains and pay taxes at the lower rate." Indeed, a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Revenue and Tax Policy Brief states that "[r]ising gains receipts in response to a rate cut are most likely to occur in the short run" and that investor responses to capital-gains tax cuts in the short term can "mislead observers."

...In addition, numerous economists have said that cuts in capital-gains taxes do not pay for themselves, let alone increase revenue. In an article published in the Journal of Public Economics, N. Gregory Mankiw -- former chairman of President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers -- and Matthew Weinzierl asked, "To what extent does a tax cut pay for itself?" Mankiw and Weinzierl concluded, "In almost all cases, tax cuts are partly self-financing. This is especially true for cuts in capital income taxes" [emphasis added]. Discussing those findings in a 2007 blog post, Mankiw noted, "Matthew Weinzierl and I estimated that a broad-based income tax cut (applying to both capital and labor income) would recoup only about a quarter of the lost revenue through supply-side growth effects. For a cut in capital income taxes, the feedback is larger -- about 50 percent -- but still well under 100 percent." A May 17, 2006, Knight Ridder Newspapers article citing Mankiw's study noted that "paybacks of 50 ... percent still mean a net revenue loss for the Treasury." The article also reported, "Treasury Secretary John Snow conceded Tuesday that the much-touted tax cuts for capital gains and dividend income don't drive today's strong economy. Asked by Knight Ridder if the tax reductions paid for themselves, Snow acknowledged that they don't."

Alright. You're just jumping on a bandwagon now. For the 4th time,(no kidding) I did not promise a "Tax Proposal". I simply said that I would respond to a question in more detail when I had the chance. Then that person acted like an arrogant @ssho1e, and a changed my mind.

SINCE you are so willing to jump on a bandwagon, and SINCE you feel comfortable trying to insult my comprehension level, I have a challenge for YOU!

How about YOU give us a tax proposal, right out of your own head, with all of your superior knowledge.

Don't hide your light under a bushel. Let is shine! Give us a detailed tax plan.

Waiting.....

I suspect YOU acturally believe YOUR gobblygook. Just like a clueless lib. THROW DOWN THE RACE CARD. When all else fails. It's null and void and worn out, partner. You libs have GOT to come up with something else now. You STILL use George Bush, so now all you need is a new back up to take the place of the race card.

So there's no rational basis for your determination at all. Perhaps you can tell us the significance of gender in this gender neutral medium.

The first half of your first sentence is certainly no surprise. The last half of your first sentence is just more evidence of your liberal brainwashing. How has Obama helped you specifically?

You're worrying & thinking too much about nothing ... I don't care if you're male, female, heterosexual, homosexual or part beast. Most of us aren't ashamed or secretive about our gender. Simple as that is, it DOES NOT matter.... aren't you more worried about the tension in the Korean Peninsula??, it's way more interesting than wondering ONE more second, whether you're a good witch or a bad witch, male or female ... I just don't care.

Ok...I don't drink, curse or smoke. I hire my help to doo my work for me while I sit in the office and waste time on this forum. Obama has not changed my life one bit for the better or worse. I have been busy for a long time. Now I can tell you how George Bush has hurt this Country worse than Obama has ever done with his needless wars and banker bailouts that they won't hardly consider loaning out without twice the colateral. I can tell you that there are over 6,000 families that lost loved ones in these wars....and for what reason? We attecked Iraq, which was not the same Country Bin Ladin was even from. Why? OIL is why. He was looking for a reason. Check out his Grandpa Bush that acutally helped arrange loans to Hitler to finance WW2....which my Dad had to fight in and a lot of my Uncles. His name was Prescott Bush...google him brainwashed!
