Taking something from someone is called stealing not redistribution. Tax hungry scumbags belong in jail.

When Rmoney files his adjusted taxes for 2011, and he will, taking full deductions from his donations to the church, his tax rate will be 10.55%. Now that's financial savvy!

Many critics noted the politics behind the Romneys not declaring as much in charitable donations as they might legitimately have in order to be able to say that they paid at least 13 percent in income taxes in each of the last 10 years. Some cynics even noted that Romney could amend his 2011 tax return after the election, seeking a refund for the tax deduction.

Will Romney’s latest tax information put the issue behind him?
The Romney campaign certainly hopes so. But Republican strategist and commentator Alex Castellanos (who worked on Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign) doesn’t think it will.

“This will drag Mitt's taxes back into the debate,” he told Politico.“And there's not many days left. I just can't imagine why they would do this. There are 40 days left and you have now made more of them about Mitt's taxes.”

Make Obama unseal his records!

Notice how the Democrats never answer the question asked but will change the subject or just start talking about something or someone else, usually a Republican.

Do not let them continue to do this. Say that I didn't ask you about x, I asked you about y. Answer the question! Do not answer one question with another question.

More bad news for President Obama, this time from his alma mater, Harvard University. In a new poll, more younger voters, many of whom voted for him in 2008, think he will lose next year.

"This survey may well serve as an ominous sign for Barack Obama's 2012 chances and the political engagement of America's largest generation," said John Della Volpe, polling director at Harvard's Institute of Politics

David H. Koch – Prostate Cancer Foundation Nano-Medicine Gift Announced
unique aspect of the collaboration developed by the Foundation is that all institutions have agreed to share their intellectual property in order to avoid bottlenecks and barriers to patentability that could impede the collaboration. Partner institutions in the collaboration include Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Weill Cornell Medical College, Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

People of Harvard donate to both parties. You left that part out, obviously!!

Why is the US Government giving donations to a political party? Thought that was against US Law!! Apprerantly not for the dems.

Restore our Future and Priorities USA Action are technically independent entities, but their founders' make no secret that their mission is to help Romney and Obama win in 2012.

Both groups are so-called super PACs that can accept unlimited donations. They were set up by former Romney and Obama advisers and can spend money in support of both candidates, though they are not allowed to directly coordinate with the campaigns.

Among his top fund-raisers pulling in more than a half-million from their wealthy networks were Vogue editrix Wintour, former New Jersey Gov. JON CORZINE (remember that crook?) and Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg.

New Jersey financier Orin Kramer, and New York financier Blair Effron also hauled in that amount.

Also raking in cash on behalf of Obama's re-election was Hollywood mega-agent Ari Emanuel, the brother of former Chief of Staff Rahm.

You have nothing as usual.
