Why? Because someone actually had a comment instead of what you do (copy & paste propaganda like a monkey all day long)?

Didn’t the president say he saved Detroit? I’ll bet he’s smiling, probably saying ‘ I love it when a plan come together’ one city at a time and 58 more states to Go!!

<quoted text> The poor already do carry a significant load of the tax burden since most states already have sales and 'sin' taxes that raise government revenue. These are examples of 'consumption taxes' that disproportionately target the poor. So, why shouldn't we balance it out by increasing the luxury tax and death tax on large estate inheritances too?
"Sin" taxes are completely avoidable.

So are lotteries and casino gambling, major ripoffs of the poor.

Daughter Of Georgia Mom Whose Baby Was Killed Claims Mom May Have Killed Him For Insurance Money
Ashley Glassey, 21, daughter of Sherry West, the mother of a 13-month old baby who was allegedly shot by De’Marquise Elkins while they were out for a morning stroll, believes that her mother may have killed the baby for the insurance money, reports First Coast News.
Glassy says that her mother lost custody of her when she was 8-years-old but they have spoken regularly since 13-month old Antonio Santiago was fatally shot in the face. According to Glassy, her mother’s story has changed several times.
Glassey said she started to have her doubts after receiving a phone call from her mother telling her that her brother, Antonio Santiago, had been killed. She claims the night of the shooting her mother asked,“How soon do you think life insurance policy will send me a check?”

That's only one accomplishment though (a great one, albeit). GZ also survived a struggle to the death with a drugged-out thug. Tig needs to step up his game....:-)
"ABC News is getting a really bad reputation lately. First, they screwed up a bunch of reporting on the Boston Marathon Bombings and didn't run retractions on most of it... Then, they went to press with FAKE emails to support the "Benghazi Scandal" that Republicans cooked up. Now they may have really out-done themselves.

Everyone in America heard about only TWO news stories over the past couple of days. The first, understandably, is that the Royal Family has a new member. Congrats. The 2nd was that George Zimmerman, a recently freed murderer had heroically saved a family of four from a "fiery auto accident", thereby proving that he's just an honorable man who only wants to do good in the world and is misunderstood.

The latter story is preposterous on the face of it... and anyone who can't see that is blinded by wishful thinking. But let's look at some things that are coming to light about this incident now that ABC got their mileage out of it.

According to some industrious bloggers with a poorly designed site, the officer who responded to the auto accident that is the subject of this story is named Patrick Rehder who lives in Lake Mary, Florida. Here's a supposed copy of that incident report (and I say "supposed" only because I have not personally verified it myself): "
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xRcmHx1ujM0/Ue-1fZG...

" MOST of Rehder's facebook posts have been about the trial... So how is it that a member of the same Sheriff's Office which is tasked with guarding Zimmerman, just happens to be same officer who responded to a car accident that Zimmerman just suddenly showed up at to become a hero? And what are the odds that the same Sheriff's Officer would have 128 friends who are ALSO Zimmerman supporters as well as staunch 2nd Amendment Rights advocates?"

Men have two heads and, aside from the dictum(?) that two heads are better than one, having two heads can simply cause confusion for both the man and the objects of his affection.
Is a Dick-Head an Anthony Weiner in the colloquial or is it a biological appendage in the clinical?
Can men think with both heads or is that something called mutual exclusivity? A man simply can't think when attempting to use both heads at the same time.
Now...what happens when a man has two Dick-Heads like in Anthony Weiner's case? This can happen to a man when and if his Dick goes to his Head.
Right about now, I think we all know which head sits atop Tony's shoulders.
You obviously have a LOT of experience in this area, son!

good press from FOX doesn't offset bad press from EVERYONE else.
IMHO, just as Crazy Eyes Bachmann's mother who told her that her daughter became retarded after receiving the HPV vaccine was never was identified, and just as Steve King's border guards who told him about the "cantaloupe calves" non-valedictorian Mexican mules will never materialize, the Zimmer Man (becomes a hero in a single bond hearing) rescuees just don't exist.

Zimmerman was in several different places according to the map before confronting Martin which would have given Martin plenty of time to walk the short distance to where he was staying.
Even if Zimmerman overreacted to Martin's presence, the home where Martin was staying was an easy walk to stay ahead of Zimmerman based on the recorded time lapse.
Arguing where Zimmerman was at any given time or if he should have even been there doesn't change what happened after he and Martin eventually became face-to-face.
Any confusion about Martin's identity and any anger on Martin's part could have been resolved with words at the time of the confrontation.
You want to assume Martin was forced to resort to violence.

"your party"
I am an independent. Soemtimes I see a lesser of two evils. Too often I see outright treason.
You seem to exhibit the usual characteristic of a Democrat, assuming that if someone isn't a Democrat they can only be a Republican.
This is just one of the many traits you exhibit that expose you as being just another indoctrinated Democrat.
I lean more toward Libertarian than anything else. However, there are things the Libertarian Party promotes that I ardently disagree with. Besides, Libertarianism is best suited for state governments which comprise the federal republic. To have a Libertarian federal government is a contradiction in terms.
Howevere, I think a Libertarian government would not be treasonous, like the Democratic Party government obviously is.
Let's see... the conservatives like to outsource if it's good for business. And they claim somehow this creates jobs in America.

And you think democrats are treasonous?

New Evidence in Georgia Infants Death Points to Parents

In spite of the social media “outrage” and the right-wing media narrative, however, the Baby Santiago case only illustrates just how prevalent racism really is in the United States. Just days after Sherry West told police her 13 month old was shot and killed by two black teens, West’s 21 year old daughter went to police to tell them that she suspected her mother may have killed her infant brother. Ashley Glassey told CBS News in March, that her mother has serious mental health issues. These include a diagnosis of bi-polar with accompanying schizophrenic tendencies. West also talked with the media about how she was removed from her mother’s care at the age of 8, because of abuse and neglect in the home. Immediately after the shooting, Glassey said West began asking questions about how long it would take her to collect the insurance money. West’s daughter also told both media and police that her mother made conflicting statements to her, regarding the child’s death - including different stories about who was shot first

On July 16th further evidence was released to the public that implicates the parents involvement in the child’s death. Police tests immediately following the shooting revealed gun powder on the hands of both Sherry West and the baby’s father, Louis Santiago.

(Reuters)- President Barack Obama on Monday called the targeting of conservative groups by U.S. tax officials "outrageous" and said that any Internal Revenue Service employees involved would be held accountable.
"We'll wait and see what exactly all the details and the facts are. But I've got no patience with it," Obama said. "I will not tolerate it. And we will make sure that we find out exactly what happened."
http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/05/13/us-...
So? Has he found out anything? That was over two months ago.
No one has been fired. In fact, key players have been promoted.
He called the Benghazi scandal a "sideshow" but CNN is even asking about the survivors and why they aren't speaking up.
Is this really too hard for you?
You really don't pay attention to the news do you?

The commissioner for the IRS's tax exempt and government entities division, was forced to retire early. That is the same as being fired and the director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements division, was also fired.

You just aren't happy because the Issa "sideshow" hasn't succeeded in tying anything...including Benghazi...to the executive branch.

A new national poll has found that support for President Barack Obama among blacks has dropped considerably over the past four months, which has contributed to Obama's sagging approval numbers. Furthermore, the lack of support among blacks for Obama may cost Democrats in the 2014 election, according to the pollsters.

According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released on Wednesday, only 78% of blacks now support Obama's job performance, which is "down from 88 percent in June and 93 percent in April."

The poll found Obama's overall approval rating is at 45%, which is a "a 3-point drop from last month" and "one point off from his all-time presidential low that came in Aug. 2011."

Blacks overwhelmingly supported Obama in 2008 and 2012, propelling him to the White House by giving him over 90% of their votes. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate in black communities rose to 13.7% in June while Obama has championed a comprehensive immigration reform bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would devastate the wages of working class Americans. The Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) recently organized a rally in Washington, D.C. protesting the immigration bill, uniting progressives and conservatives of all races in opposition to comprehensive immigration reform. BALA founder Leah Durant told Breitbart News that blacks on the lower rungs of the economic ladder would be hurt most if the Senate's immigration bill became law.

According to Bill McInturff, one of Republican pollsters that helped conduct the poll, these numbers are "a telling scratch" in Obama's armor that may hurt Democrats in 2014.

"If ever there is an edge that falls off in the president's core support, that is always very meaningful in an off-year election," he said.

OBAMA IS TAXES THE HELL OUT OF MIDDLE CLASS OBAMA CARE!!!IF YOU ARE ON WALFARE HEALTH CARE IS FREE,FREE PHONES,FREE LIGHT
BILLS,FREE WATER BILL,PAY NO TAXES,THE DEM AND OBAMA PAY THESE PEOPLE NOT TO WORK.YOU THINK THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LOOK FOR A JOB,HELL NO!!!!!SO KEEP BELIVING OBAMA THE BULLSHITER!!!ALL OBAMA CARES ABOUT IS A DAMN VOTE NOT YOU THE DUMB ASS VOTER THAT VOTED FOR OBAMA!!!!

You're talking about the recession created by the Democrats' Marxist subprime CRA program collapsing the economy after two years (one year, eight months, rounded to two years, dumbass) of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, right?
Yup, the worst thing Bush did was to negotiate with Democrats and give them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) of oversight by Democrats in exchange for Democrats supporting the war in Iraq.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
