Yea, what a surprise, Right Wing Obama caves in to the Extreme Right Wing Wacko that ran Bush.
Imagine, a Tweedle Dee "caves in" and adopts the same policies that Tweedle Dum" adored.
We are all shocked, shocked.
Of course the answer can't be that Obama is obviously about as liberal as John Ashcroft.
Oh no - that makes sense and denies the Wackos a Leeeeberal Boogeyman.
And I hooked the water boy too.

Your just too easy.

Yea, there was no economic problems when Bush was president - well maybe on on Right Wing Planet - but here on Earth there were plenty. Hence the appropriately titled "Bush Recession" and "Bush Deficits."

Hey, you can either provide documentation Reagan and Bush refused pay;
or
You can't.

Hmmmm. What would a Right Wing Hypocrite do ?

Answer the question;
or
make a silly, nonsensical, childish remark, hoping nobody notices they cannot rebut the implication drawn.

Ah.... Never mind ... We all know Right Wingers lose any argument based on facts and rational thought so ...

"Obama is drunk and hopeless".

Yep, that's persuasive.

I hope the neighborhood kids come by seeking cookies - dealing with Right Wing Wackos has made me long for more adult conversation.

<quoted text>Here's the thing. How do you know those investers were ALWAYS financially secure enough to invest? Perhaps some of those investers grew up in the hood and worked and ACHIEVED that status. Why is it that you who aren't financially able to do that are so BITTER toward thoses who are? It makes no sense. If you had that VERY SAME OPPORTUNITY, you would DO THE VERY SAME THING. You haven't reached that status, SO you want everyone who has...TO PAY, PAY, PAY. I don't have that status and I DON'T CARE what they do. They made great decisions and are reaping that benefit. I simply DON'T CARE. Kind of like how you all give passes to Obama and what he DOES. YOU don't care. Well, there is ONE difference. You think everything that Obama does is for YOU. What a laugh! I don't think the money the big dogs make is necessarily "right", but I also don't think it's right to forcefullly take it from them.
Isn't it great to live in Right Wing Fantasy World where Republicans don't devastate the economy and and where the myth of equal opportunity soothes the consciences of the "Have's" as they enjoy the benefits of a society designed by them and for them.

But then - EVIL REALITY - rears it ugly head. Facts and statistics are raised that demonstrate the myth ..... Is a myth.

But, before you read, it's a beautiful day, use those Socialist Security I pay for you to get; use that Socialist Medicare I pay for you to get; stop by the drug store and refresh that Ablilify you get through that Socialist Medicare Part D I pay for you to enjoy, grab a fishing pole and head out to a nice Socialist TVA lake and catch a few fish.

While your enjoying all your socialist benefits I give you, try to avoid the Right Wing hatred of knowledge and read the following about the myth of "equal opportunity":

Equal Opportunity, Our National Myth
By JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ

"The gap between aspiration and reality could hardly be wider. Today, the United States has less equality of opportunity than almost any other advanced industrial country.

Study after study has exposed the myth that America is a land of opportunity.

It’s not that social mobility is impossible, but that the upwardly mobile American is becoming a statistical oddity.

According to research from the Brookings Institution, only 58 percent of Americans born into the bottom fifth of income earners move out of that category, and just 6 percent born into the bottom fifth move into the top. Economic mobility in the United States is lower than in most of Europe and lower than in all of Scandinavia.

But then we changed, in several ways. While racial segregation decreased, economic segregation increased. After 1980, the poor grew poorer, the middle stagnated, and the top did better and better.
Disparities widened between those living in poor localities and those living in rich suburbs — or rich enough to send their kids to private schools.

A result was a widening gap in educational performance — the achievement gap between rich and poor kids born in 2001 was 30 to 40 percent larger than it was for those born 25 years earlier, the Stanford sociologist Sean F. Reardon found."

Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, a professor at Columbia and a former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and chief economist for the World Bank, is the author of “The Price of Inequality.”

Stiglitz been sharply critical of the Obama Administration's financial-industry rescue plan.[20] Stiglitz said that whoever designed the Obama administration's bank rescue plan is "either in the pocket of the banks or theyre incompetent.

In Obama's case, it would be incompetent.

For once you are somehow at correct, the only error is that it was Bush's Bailout Plan that Obama adopted, they are both puppets for the billionaire banksters.

AP News:

WASHINGTON — Struggling to stave off financial catastrophe, the Bush administration on Friday laid out a radical bailout plan with a jawdropping price tag _ a takeover of a half-trillion dollars or more in worthless mortgages and other bad debt held by tottering institutions.

A grim-faced President Bush acknowledged risks to taxpayers in what would be the most sweeping government intervention to rescue failing financial institutions since the Great Depression.

Congressional officials said they expected a request for legal authority to buy up the bad loans, at a cost in excess of $500 billion to the government.

Democrats were discussing whether to try to attach middle class assistance to the legislation, despite a request from Bush to avoid adding controversial items that could delay action.

The federal government already has pledged more than $600 billion in the past year to bail out, or help bail out, some of the biggest names in American finance. That includes the rescue of investment bank Bear Stearns in March, the takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac earlier this month and the takeover of the world's largest insurance company, American International Group, just this week.

Now that I'm "caught up" on reading this thread, it's interesting to note that a certain someone has not responded to posts with questions about "their" tax proposal...
Interesting? Yes.
Surprising? No. You have to know what you're talking about to provide such information.
His/her response of "I'll get around to it when I want", or whatever, is a good indication that he/she has NO CLUE about taxes and may be doing a whole bunch of research to not further embarrass him or herself...
Interesting that this post, made yesterday, still holds true...

One would THINK that someone so eloquent, so erudite, so all knowing, would be able to document their tax plan fairly easily.

NOT!

I'm expecting that, by the time I reach the age to receive Social Security benefits, there will be significant limitations/reductions based on earnings and/or assets.

I don't think it's "fair", but I think it's probably needed and acceptable to me.

Hell no.

Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare Part D are the most obviously socialist programs since the Soviet Union provided pensions and medical care for old people.

These programs must be completely eliminated so that we can prove, once and for all, the results of the Right Wing's demand any and all socialist programs must be eliminated.

Let's do it - watch the debacle - and get over it. Then we can return to rational programs like a truly progressive income tax, a highly progressive inheritance tax, and social programs for our fellow Americans.

It's going to painful , but until the bodies of millions of homeless or dead elderly Americans litter the roadside, Right Wingers will continue to enjoy socialist programs, while refusing to pay their costs.

It'll have to get worse - to get better.

King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
But Jesus said, Allow little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Right Wing King James Bible (2013)
But Jesus said, Allow little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven, export for those useless kids born to parents too poor, too immature, too addicted to drugs, or just plain too selfish to care for those crumb crunchers. Let them die - sorry - but it sure isn't the responsibility of Christians to care for these brats - nobody made their parents have sex - so it's just tough toenails for them.

By the way, did I mentions that I care so much I know when even a sparrow falls. But that's a sparrow, not some rug rat kid that picked the wrong parents - sucks to be him.

Thus sayeth The Lord of the Right Wing.
