So why DO Republicans hate art, the elderly and children? Hint: Same reason parents hate their children when they say, "No." We could just leave it at that, but this is too much fun.

There is no money! As a Nation we have wasted money in every forum. And the returnes may not surface for another 20 years. Our nation is based on short term gains, but the asian market is based on long term gains. We as a Nation can no longer afford a short term gains as Obark, Barry or any of his sur-names, are leading our country to disaster.

ALL LIES.

We are awash in money. It has simply been TAXED and REDISTRIBUTED to the ultra wealthy by the Republiscum/TeaParasites from Ronnie Alzheimer ChimpBoy Reagan on down.

We are the richest country in the history of the world yet there are many homeless and soon to be homeless. Why?

The thievery of the tax code and corporate welfare. That is it.

1% of Americans have 34% of the wealth
20% of Americans have 85% of the wealth
40% of Americans have no wealth

That isn't democracy, that is FEUDALISM.

How to Pay No Taxes

Eleven shelters, dodges, and rolls—all perfectly legal—used by America's wealthiest people...

For the 400 U.S. taxpayers with the highest adjusted gross income, the effective federal income tax rate—what they actually pay—fell from almost 30 percent in 1995 to just under 17 percent in 2007, according to the IRS.

And for the approximately 1.4 million people who make up the top 1 percent of taxpayers, the effective federal income tax rate dropped from 29 percent to 23 percent in 2008.

It may seem too fantastic to be true, but the top 400 end up paying a lower rate than the next 1,399,600 or so.

"Study says most corporations pay no U.S. income taxes

Most U.S. and foreign corporations doing business in the United States avoid paying any federal income taxes, despite trillions of dollars worth of sales, a government study released on Tuesday said.

The Government Accountability Office said 72 percent of all foreign corporations and about 57 percent of U.S. companies doing business in the United States paid no federal income taxes for at least one year between 1998 and 2005."
