I mean these people have no respect for authority yet they're the first ones who cry about everyone else not respecting authority.
Oh, trust me. I know. They're much better at manipulation than just about anything else.

I would prop myself if I could. It's just that I was just told that I'm on some sort of radar and I just can't do it with other people watching me.
Don't panic now. Behave yourself and stand in front of the antenna real close. LMAO

<quoted text>First off, we certainly won't have that 2 Trillion dollar issue of the money Mitt Romney wanted to throw at Defense. That's a help right off. I posted a link last night that does explain how letting the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% expire will help considerably. Again - nobody rides unscathed. The poor will see cut backs in programs that serve them. The middle class will undoubtedly see taxes increase at the state and local levels initially and can expect future cuts to tax deductions they've enjoyed further down the road. Obama didn't promise us a seat in the Rose Garden. He just committed to doing what he could to make the pain less painful and less dramatic. That said, if the Republicans don't want to play ball and compromise, we'll start in January to feel the hit.
Even the most basic inspection of the IRS income tax statistics shows that raising taxes on the salaries, dividends and capital gains of those making more than $250,000 can't possibly raise enough revenue to fund Mr. Obama's new spending ambitions.

Consider the IRS data for 2006, the most recent year that such tax data are available and a good year for the economy and "the wealthiest 2%." Roughly 3.8 million filers had adjusted gross incomes above $200,000 in 2006.(That's about 7% of all returns; the data aren't broken down at the $250,000 point.) These people paid about $522 billion in income taxes, or roughly 62% of all federal individual income receipts. The richest 1%-- about 1.65 million filers making above $388,806 -- paid some $408 billion, or 39.9% of all income tax revenues, while earning about 22% of all reported U.S. income.

Note that federal income taxes are already "progressive" with a 35% top marginal rate, and that Mr. Obama is (so far) proposing to raise it only to 39.6%, plus another two percentage points in hidden deduction phase-outs. He'd also raise capital gains and dividend rates, but those both yield far less revenue than the income tax. These combined increases won't come close to raising the hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue that Mr. Obama is going to need.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1235615510653...

We keep hearing about increasing the taxes for the top 2% which obviously will not put a dent in Obama's plans for additional spending. This means the debt continues to increase. Polls are conducted asking if taxes should be raised on the top 2% earners. Responders indicate "Oh yes! Raise taxes on the rich! They don't pay enough!" These people do not understand the richest in our society are already paying 62% of all federal taxes and the top 1% are paying almost 40% of federal taxes while they only earn 22% of the total income. These people are also not told how Obama has no significant plans to reduce spending or reduce our debt. Anyone who does a budget for their family knows you cannot continue to spend more than you earn!

<quoted text>Yes, I did, and I'm so glad my vote counted. The alternative was unreasonable, extreme, and there was no mercy in the formula. You may donate to "Save The Children", but many of us voted to save our children contrary to your perspective.
What is so sad is that you are NOT saving your children or grandchildren. They will suffer the consequences of this rising debt.
