Actually, it's not taxation without representation - we elect those officials into office - it's call a democracy, arguably though. Back in 1776 we weren't a union - yet. We formed a union to "rebel" the tyrants who were taxing us without representation. Our government - although a majority elected - is hardly tyrannical. If you want a great example of modern day tyranny, visit Venezuala. Tell Chavez I said hello. <snicker>
I'm sorry, I guess I didn't make my post clear. I know we're a democracy now, I was talking about during the revolution (when you said it turned into a world war against GB) THAT was when it was taxation without representation. I had just never looked at it as a world war against Britain.
Personally, I think if you don't feel represented by the government, you should vote for the most viable candidate to get the result you want.
No thanks on the visit to Chavez, if I decide to visit somewhere South of Kentucky for the winter, I doubt I'll go THAT far South...lol.

As bill Clinton said, even if you taxed him and folks like him, aka the 1%, at 100% it still wouldn't solve our budget mess. Okay, Mr. Marx.

So, stop acting like we are ONLY talking only about taxing folks with Learjets. There aren't enough of them.

At a certain point you should just acknowledge that to do all the "wonderful" things you and the dems want to do to "help" people, you have to raise taxes fairly significantly on the the 2%-50%ers who actually pay federal income tax, along with the 1%ers.

I can tell you, to the extent my taxes go up ... and they will next year, regardless, I will be spending less. I don't think I'm alone. To the extent the 2%-50%ers are spending less, the economy will grow slower along with the pace of job creation. I do believe if given a choice Americans would rather have jobs verses handouts.

The Revolutionary War began as a war between Great Britain and the United States, but gradually grew into a world war between Britain on one side and the United States, France, Netherlands and Spain on the other. The main result was an American victory, with mixed results for the other powers.

The war was the result of the political American Revolution. Colonists galvanized around the position that the Stamp Act of 1765, imposed by Parliament of Great Britain, was unconstitutional.

The British Parliament insisted it had the right to tax colonists. The colonists claimed that, as they were British subjects, taxation without representation was illegal. The American colonists formed a unifying Continental Congress and a shadow government in each colony, though at first remaining loyal to the king.

The American boycott of taxed British tea led to the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when shiploads of tea were destroyed. London responded by ending self-government in Massachusetts and putting it under the control of the British army with General Thomas Gage as governor.

And then the fight started.

There are jobs out there - something Conservatives always fail to see. Being one dimensional in your job search will keep you jobless - whether in this economy or others before it. In order to become successful in today's market, you need to think flex. We have job openings up here - a lot of them we can't fill - and we'll do the training and provide schooling. I'm not going to lie - it's tough work - sometimes 12 hours a day, 7-days-a-week. But they are great-paying jobs.

The only way to fight the income tax increase is to better your job skills - and you marketability. The days of free handouts is over - unemployment benefit extensions is what got us in trouble in the first place.

Lastly, and this isn't directed at you Subby - living on Topix for 8-10 hours a day is not improving your job skills.

"Exactly", I can't say, it comes easier for some than others. Sometimes preparedness and opportunity do not meet each other at opportune times.

The HUGEST problem right now is that no Republican will admeit that there is just as many out-of-work Conservatives as there are Liberals. Laziness knows no bounderies.

That's because the conservatives got tired of working to make the liberals living for them.

For some folks, itís not really viable to increase your job skills and marketability. I went to college and graduate school, already. To the extent the government raises my taxes, it just means I do less spending. The point being, when we all do less spending, the economy grows slower Ö when the economy grows slower there are less jobs for folks.

I don't think he's saying that the only folks who are lazy are liberals. He does have a point ... in that a lot of folks won't take a job that pays good, if they think it's too hard or beneath them. Well f' them I say.

Taxing rich people will not solve the debt/deficit so, why even try? Taxing them will only show how mean we are and it would only bring in a measly $800 billion a year which, in Topix 'tard parlance and expertise, is "nothing so, why even try?". Plus, as we've learned from the post-election rhetoric, it's only poking the corporate bears who have ways of getting even with us if we don't vote against our best interests like good, free citizens should. What we need to do is cut spending on social programs while increasing spending on the Military Industrial Complex. This is what Mittens Rmoney intended to do and, since he lost, why not push his agenda upon the American people? Makes sense, right?

I'm not in total agreement with your statement. I've worked through many recessions - some I've even thrived. I don't do anything fancy - just manufacturing. Aside from maybe Florida and some western states, manufacturing is very much alive and well in the US. Manufacturing companies are so desperate to find people nowadays, they're willing to train just about anyone who will come back the second day. I'll buy into the laziness statement, but only to a certain point. No amount of political rhetoric is going to change the mindset of the American worker.

Like Henry Ford said, "Pay your workers enough money so they will buy the products that they build."

Allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire on the wealthy as Obama wishes, will only bring in 68 billion more a year. Thatís not very much when we are taking on over 1000 billion in debt every year. That solves about 7% of our spending problem.
