All I keep hearing from you right wingers is, Detroit, Detroit, Detroit &, if Obama had a state, it would look like Detroit. Are y'all not weary of the fact that, most republican states receive more from the govt than they contribute or, pay in?After that FACT, y'all should just STFU! Now I see why all you whiners are on this thread whining everyday. Easy solution to the debt of our country. Why don't y'all stop whining & contribute something other than an open, empty hand all the damn time. Meanwhile, most democratic states contribute more to the govt than they take &, you're the ones calling other folks moochers! Hypocritical Bastards!

When he posts things like Hannity "edited" Obama's statement about our taxes going up leaving off the part "by design", it didn't even cross his mind that Obama WANTED our taxes to go up. He just added "by design" to try and place the blame elsewhere. As usual.

Obama's promise of a middle class tax cut was a failed promise or a flat out lie - because everyone saw more money taken from their checks last January and will again next year.

And they still keep electing these people.

"A Democratic legislator from Minnesota swiftly apologized Tuesday for a tweet he sent that referred to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as "Uncle Thomas" following a major ruling on the nation's landmark voting rights law."
But Winkler is far from alone. A family member of mine had already used the term with me upon learning of the court's ruling. Thomas has been called that and much worse. There are conservatives, though, who argue that any African American who dares to defy the Democratic stereotype is automatically branded a sellout or Uncle Tom. My previous reporting on black Republicans found that is simply not the case.

Black Republicans like former Secretary of State Colin Powell have long been warmly embraced in communities of color, and in Powell's case even long before he endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president. Those black conservatives who are embraced, however, from Powell to Joe Watkins, appear to share one commonality: Their commitment to the black community was never in question.

As black Republican consultant Raynard Jackson told me at the time, "The black Republicans who receive the most favorable treatment within our community are those who are actually engaged in our community. When you look at people like Mia Love, Allen West and J.C. Watts, most of these prominent black Republicans are not engaged within the black community in a significant way."

But in the case of Thomas, the opposite is true. Not only has he never engaged with civil rights groups in a meaningful away -- unlike Powell, who has a long-standing relationship with the United Negro College Fund -- Thomas has spent much of his career attacking civil rights measures, measures from which he benefited.

Hypothetical offsets and savings, real taxes.

The Revolutionary War was about taxes and people who did not wish to support a government that had become oppressive.

George Zimmerman filed a lawsuit against NBC claiming that NBC made him (George) look racist in a edited 911 tape they aired.
The thing is, when George Zimmerman filed his Complaint with the Court, he, Zimmerman, edited out the portion of the 911 tape that George makes himself look racist when he said, "F'cking Coons." (listen to Time Stamp 2:22)
Also, at Time Stamp 3:20, on the tape you can hear George knocking or taping on a door and if you listen closely you can hear George say: "Keep an eye on my truck." Who did George say that to, and why did he edit those words out of the Transcript he filed with the Court?
Try to wrap your head around that one.
Zimmerman files a lawsuit with the Court claiming he has suffered damages of "emotional distress" from an edited 911 tape that he claims made him him look racist -- but at the same time -- Zimmerman gives the Court his own edited version of same 911 tape by cutting out his own comment: "F'cking Coons"

Social Security and Medicare is paid for (partially thanks to Dumbya)by taxes, but these SSI lifers think that's just hunky dory. "Reward the one percent; screw the forty-seven" has become the mantra of these aged baggers who are kept alive by public funds. I think these right-whiners "just can't get right,"

Never before have we seen such a thin-skinned, sensitive president who only wants to be liked and adored by his admirers...and who personally went after and demeaned his only opposition.

(Forgot to add the last part.)

But it's quite remarkable. And worrisome.
