Aww gee... now some name calling.
btw, "fight against your own best interest" is another hackneyed, puerile talking point of the lame left.
But I can tell you need help. Her's a start:
Hauser's law is the proposition that, in the United States, federal tax revenues since World War II have always been approximately equal to 19.5% of GDP, regardless of wide fluctuations in the marginal tax rate.[1] Historically, since the end of World War II, federal tax receipts as a percentage of gross domestic product averaged 17.9%, with a range from 14.4% to 20.9% between 1946 - 2007

Just how weak minded are you?

Wikipedia is a general source... use that rounded thingy on your mouse and scroll down.

Links... sources... references.

Move that pointy thing onto those highlighted words.

Click and learn.

Geez... who knew remedial lessons were necessary?

Wikipedia is a lame place to go for any information, dolt. Any one can change the information. ANYONE.

Which makes it worthless as a place to get any information. try citing Wikipedia in college paper.. Or better yet use Wikipedia as a source for your dissertation. See how far that gets you.. Wikipedia is a useless.
If any one needs remedial lesson.. That would be you, scooter.

The Loyal Opposition). If the Opposition behaves irresponsibly, and indulges in unhealthy, destructive criticism, or in the case of the present GOP leadership, down right hostile instead of constructive discussions, the entire democratic fabric is endangered. Both sides—the ruling party and the Opposition—have an obligation to observe the rules of the game. They must not play foul, for one foul inevitably leads to another and yet another, and pretty soon the end of folly is nowhere in sight. The democratic process then becomes a bloody mess. As we have been witnessing over the past few years of a majority party without responsible leadership. It is quite obvious that unless the people are vigilant and alert, all power will pass into the hands of clever professional politicians, lobbyists and demagogues who will not hesitate to exploit the ignorant masses and pursue policies that help them to perpetuate their agenda. Today’s rightwing is intolerant, uncompassionate, and self-serving!

Unfortunately, the republican party has lost it message and soul to both the religious right and now the tea party.

It has become a party where it is more a matter of ideology rather than what is best for the country. Though some happy news many of the business and moderate wings of the republican party has pushed back in some the local races. Backing more moderate candidates. Defeating many of the tea party candidates as a consequence. If the republicans ever want to see the White house again. the tea party will have to go.

And hopefully after the 2014 mid term elections will see that happen. And in 2016 all but the last hold out will be out. And perhaps we will all see a republican party that has won back its message and soul. If not then..

I can for see a lot of loses and a new party supplanting the republican party. Perhaps a few more independent candidates winning elections as well. 2014 will be the either a start in rebuilding or the beginning of the end for this once great party.

It may come as a surprise to you, but Obama is not really The Messiah, can't create food by magic, and needs the cooperation of Congress to feed those hungry mouths.
Oh now dont be presenting these Corupt Right Bent Puss Heads with Facts.
They will get all bent out of shape.
Their war against women minorities and the poor will avail them nothing in the end.
Their will be a day of reckoning for the Tea Bagging toadies of the wealthy.

You are confused, any one can try to change it yes, but the website is constantly monitored by professional people that will reject any and all false claims. Please give an example of your claim that wikipedia is worthless -- you can't!!

Again for the dullard.. Try using citing Wikipedia in a college paper. No teacher or professor worth their salt will accept any thing from that source.

As for your proof Here..
A false Wikipedia 'biography'
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/opinion/e...

This opinion piece demonstrates why wikipeedia should never be used to look for knowledge.

I think the Tea Party manipulators should face that day of reckoning. As for the Tea Party lemmings, we could try rehab.

Again you are confused, that old story is somebody's opinion and does not represent facts, wikipedia market is as "in dispute"! Once again you are a blithering idiot!, why don't you read wikipedia's "mission statement"? Wikipedia is very clear about its purpose which does not include a place for scientific research of a source for college papers or dissertation!

You keep on being a fool and use wikipedia.. No one with sense uses that site for anything other than as a joke.

No competent scientist or researcher use this site. Nor cite it in their papers.. but you use it for you dissertation and see how far it gets you.

No matter how wed you are to using it. No librarian, college professor, or any teacher accepts anything cited from wikipedia. It a useless and meaningless site in terms of real knowledge. But you just keep on defending this idiocy and I will laugh at you..

Bullcrap!!

So, how does this republican controlled House stack up when it comes to productivity? Not so well, the112th Congress is the least productive since they began keeping stats way back in 1947. Is this simple enough for you or would like some Freedom Fries with that?

46 Bills on Abortion.
113 Bills on Religion.
73 Bills on Family Relationships.
36 Bills on Marriage.
72 Bills on Firearms.
604 Bills on Taxation.
437 Bills on Govt Investigations.

Republican-controlled House of Representative Bills blocked by Republicans:

Blocked bill to aid Small Business.
Blocked Unemployment extension.
Blocked Bank Reform Bills.
Blocked Campaign Finance Reform and open Contributions Law.
Blocked MULTIPLE Jobs Bills.
Blocked Infrastructure Bill.
Blocked Ending Tax Breaks for companies that Outsource Jobs.
Blocked Wall Street Reform.
Blocked Energy Legislation.
Blocked Mine Safety Bill.
Blocked Oil Spill Liability Cap increase.
Blocked Bill to lower Oil Company Tax Breaks.
Blocked Bill to impose charging American Oil Companies on Oil achieved in the Gulf.
