Yeah - try debunking ANYTHING.
Ya haven't proven squat so far.

Obama and company are all about taxing, spending, and wresting control from the citizenry.

I notice both Ginger and Cjrian have mentioned Unions. I truly feel that Unions are far more destructive than they are helpful. They served a purposed in the 30’s but are no longer truly for the worker. Look at some of the bigger Unions- teachers and postal workers. These businesses are broke, ill run and always screaming for more money. I noticed that Ford moved one of its new plants overseas, I have a feeling Ford chose to stay in business rather then let the Unions and their current unrealistic demands ruin their company.

Oh- and please note all the Union contributors to Markey’s 2008 campaign.

I was hoping you'd have something of substance, cjlyin.

Oh-and please note the small percentage of campaign funding given by those evil Unions (a necessary evil until corporations play nice) when compared to those welfare receiving Corporations.

Bueller?

That's your homework, motomommy....and please note that makusatsu is Republican for "I can't keep up so I'm going to mumble from beneath the bridge for a while".

Are you serious? You really think Unions are necessary? I would love to see the financial current standings of Union business vs. corporate owned. I am sure that the corporations are much more stable then a Union company. Unions are not reacting to the economy like the rest of the business sector is. This economy will take years to recover if the practices are not redefined.

Hahaha, Corp play nice- don't you think the broke car companies paying their janitors $20.00 per hour excessive? Don't you think the UAW having the Cadillac plan health insurance packages plus high wages, plus deluxe retirement maybe be what broke the auto industry.

Ha, ha, ha!!!!!!

Small percentage? 5 of the top ten top political donors are Unions, giving almost exclusively to Dems. One is a Dem operation, giving to guess who? One is a Lawtyers association which gives primarly to Dems. The final 3 are Corporations, who split donations SOMEWHAT 50-50, with the majority going to - Dems, again. The breakdown is approximately the same when looking at the top 100 donors, and the top 1000.

Welfare Corporations? Those would be those that donated the most to Dems. AIG, Bear Stearns, Morgan Stanley, GM, Chrysler, AT&T, the full gamut.

Interest groups?
PAC's?
527's?
Again, mostly Leftist operations.
Many funded (almost always indirectly) by George Soros.
Ole George is estimated to have contributed over $100 million into Obamas election (an affordable amount to a man with $9 billion). A like amount came from his cronies, family, "friends". Much of their contributions were channeled through the Tides organizations, which is essentially a money laundering outfit, to bypass donor limitations.

Other individual contributions of the rich? More of the same. Buffet, Gates, Ellison, etc - splittng their donations approximately 75 - 80% to Dems and Repubs getting the leftovers.

Are you going to do your homework or not?

What's the number?

What percentage of campaign funding is spent by Unions vs. Corporations?

If you're going to cling to willful ignorance like a child, then I'm going to treat you like a child, cjlyin.

Try again.

The vast majority of citizens received tax breaks under Obama.

Give me some sign that you acknowledge that your talking point about that is incorrect rushian babble.

Mkay?

I'm sorry they hit a nerve with your tobacco tax...now get over it.

"Obamacare"? As you've been reminded numerous times...your chicken little scenarios don't exist in Countries whose systems we hope to emulate.

Lastly, you're a little behind the 8 ball on the tax cut talking points as the Obama Administration has said that they'll extend the tax cuts for nearly all Americans.

Anything else, or can we call you debunked once again?

I am just as much for letting the Democrats falling flat on their a/ss as I am for the republicans to do the same thing. I say throw both sides of the crooked isle in the slammer. And start over with new blood from America's independent candidates.

Obama is on a very interesting path here, tax-wise. He is very good at making things look better than what they are to an uneducated populous. People are screaming, so he is finally reacting. But things are NOT what they appear to be.

Keep the tax cuts for those making under that magic $250K. Roll back the 2001 tax rate for all others. Then spend another $180 Billion in expanded business tax cuts for buying new equipment and infrastructure spending. Sounds swell, right?

BUT he would then offset the cost by closing other tax breaks for multinational corporations, oil and gas companies and others. What will these companies do? What will the successful middle-sized business do when their tax rates (that evil $250K group) go up? Stop hiring. What will large corporations do when their tax- breaks end? Leave the U.S., of course. That is the part he leaves out when he talks about his economic "strategy". Leaving us still asking...where are the JOBS going to come from?

Still haven't heard anything about the expired tax package that is going to bite the earner in the butt- but Obama the Glib has them fooled. Mr. Smoke and Mirrors.

Oh, an amusing aside- have you heard that Rahm is VERY seriously considering defecting to run for Retiring Chicago Mayor Daley's seat? He gave up his shot at Speaker after Pelosi by taking the White House gig, and I think he regrets it. Not a good time for Democrats to have their Pied Piper jumping ship! LOL!

I'm surprised that Obama is getting so much heat from the far right for offsetting the costs for middle class and small business tax cuts by ending corporate welfare for businesses that ship their capital out of the country and big oil.

I guess I'm not that surprised.

ColoMountain...I don't agree with the throw the baby out with the bathwater concept.

As I've said, the vast majority of our debt and deficit can be traced to one Party's administrations and policies.

That's not a coincidence.

So...was that an example of judicial activism or no?

I've validated myself enough. If the Obamaniacs are incapable of looking beyond Obama.com , that will not be my problem. The stats I've already given ar3e sufficient. The rich give to Dems, whether they're individuals, or Corporations (or in the case of Soros, who wish to destroy or governence and economic systems)

The tobacco tax was merely a sign of things to come. Obama and company are hell-bent on consolidating their power through economic collapse and poilitical manipulation.

Germany lowered taxes, and is recovering nicely. France, China, Argentina, etc - the stories the same. Greece, the UK, Ecuador, and others are fiscal disasters. Where's the success of incresaed governmental intrustion? It's pure illusion!!

Removing restrains on the citizenry and corporations has a 6000 year track record of success. Socialism has a 150 year record of TOTAL failure.

Imposing additional foolish restrains, results in disaster. The USSR survived as a Communist entity but 80 years; Red China now has lower tax rates than the US, and is thriving; Israel has had much more success since dumping Socialism. And the List is unwavering - Socialism is an inherent failure, Free Market Capitalism and low tax rates succeeds.

Believe THAT if you wish! Is this like Obamas other promises? Worth the paper they're written on? Obama should join the Liars Club. He's a shoe-in for President!

You can call me anything you want - except wrong. Ya ain't proven that yet!!
By ANY stretch of the imagination.
