"These projects produce wealth, they bring industry, they bring jobs, and the wealth they bring brings wealth to other sections of the United States...As this State's income rises, so does the income of Michigan. As the income of Michigan rises, so does the income of the United States. A rising tide lifts all the boats and as Arkansas becomes more prosperous so does the United States and as this section declines so does the United States..."
~John F. Kennedy, Heber Springs, Arkansas, at the Dedication of Greers Ferry Dam, October 3, 1963

(Remember when this president and Jeffrey Immelt sat in front of the Jobs Council and Obama smiled and said, "Shovel-ready was not as...uh...shovel-ready as we expected..."and The Council, led by GE's Immelt, erupted in laughter?)

What happened between JFK's "a rising tide lifts all boats" and Obama's promise of shovel ready jobs being a joke?

Poor, poor Hillary
Hillary Clinton will continue to “work hard” recovering from being “near broke” to stay not “truly well-off” by collecting $225,000 for a speech in Las Vegas at the public university campus there.
Oh, by the way, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas has just announced a tuition increase of 4% a year for the next 4 years.
I seem to remember that a young man out of Illinois ran for President from the 60's to the 80's on the platform that he was just a poor boy from Peoria(heartland of American who lived the American Dream , went to college, found a good job, married and made a good family life as he rose to prominence as a Hollywood star to be Governor and President. That man was the very wealthy Ronald Reagan. Why deny to women, even Hillary Clinton , that she lived the same kind of American Dream?

Nope Japanese beheaded POW's, they denied them water until they died while marching, they pulled fingernails, put them up them up on posts and watched them as the sun burned blistered and totally dehydrated their bodies and they died, they used bamboo and allowed it to penetrate into the body causing excruciating pain until the POW died. They also like to do experiments much like the Nazis did on the Jews.
Waterboarding wasn't used.
yes son. they did do experiments. and the allies condemned them for doing so but were extremely eager to get their hands on the research.

but hey! that's ok anyway since they brought over some of the japanese scientists to do more testing in the US. not on people but with germ warefare.

imagine that?

Does your Socialist Security come from the Hand of God, or the generosity of the State??
Have a cigarette and think on that..........
Six or seven generations of retirees have your side to thank for SS. So don't blame me if I'm also getting back what the government took from me in every single one of my paychecks my entire working life.

Now answer the question.

You mean you degrade someone for a social security check where he gets a small portion of the money he paid into his entire life minus any interest it should have earned? Social Security original purpose was for those who paid into it for a lifetime could draw from it and so could their dependents if they suffered a family tragedy where the breadwinner was dead or disabled.

Not anything like the system we have now where people have been on SSI for generations.

Wrong again. The Probate Judge, not the executor, will determine what is and isn't paid out of the estate. The Probate Judge will not release money to the heirs until all obligations of the deceased are paid, including any taxes.
My original contention, you cannot escape taxes by dying, stands as correct.

As for the immigration problems with children at our Southern border:
HR7311
Signed by George Bush in 2008.
The Bill states that:

It's like Bush purposely created all these problems for Obama.

I will bet you a nickle or a dime that "real dumb" will use the word "f*ck" one way or another in his next 10 posts. he can not seem to post without using the word. His vocabulary is limited so profanity is his out. He is also not very bright he fails to understand the correct spelling of his favorite word is fuck.

Well... reich wingers can't match the story line.

Which is probably one of the reasons they don't have any viable candidate yet.

don't know what state you come from, but once the executor has been appointed by the "court", he/she has the authority to pay bills and distribute the estate without court approval....

most estates are settled without ever seeing a probate judge....

and, by the way, property taxes are taxes against the property, not the owner.....

JFK championed the Civil Rights Bill, which every Southern State fought against. DUH
Southerners had him assasinated in TX for it.
You asshats would hate him as much today as you did in the 1960's.
Nixon, OTOH, would be kicked out of today's Repugnetard PArty
Every Southern state during JFK's administration were Southern Democrats. The same Southern bloc who did everything within their power to keep the Civil Rights Act from passing.

Now take your foot out of your mouth.

"For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life.

~John F. Kennedy, January 20, 1961
What happened between then and now? Democrats today believe our rights come from the "generosity of the state" and not "from the hand of God"...and want to win at all costs.
Don't dare use the "G" word can't say it in school, can't mention it in the town square, Christmas is no longer Christmas and a Christmas Tree is called 'winter time greenery'....
Liberalism is insane and harmful where American family traditions are no longer accepted but outlaw or ridiculed and immigrants religions, traditions, holidays and customs are promoted and accepted. Citizen of the US are treated not as native born Americans but as second class peons whose only value is how much they can be taxed so free healthcare, free housing, free education can be given to non-citizens and their entire families.
