I've got enough posts under my own name not to need any others. But I'm happy that you feel overwhelmed by them. One of my objectives is to reveal your crudeness and stupidity. I do that simply by getting you to post, as you just have.

<quoted text>yes, indeed. the half of the country that pays no taxes to support the less fortunate are not doing their fair share. they should be helping those that are even less fortunate than them by funding even more programs to aid the needy.
But that's the half we're trying help, right. It would be, as Larry says, heartless to ask them to help. The other half will need to pay more, that's why we re-elected Obama. It is his mandate to help the less fortunate 50%.

but shouldn't there only be one person not payhing taxes? the LEAST fortunate person in the US? the rest just aren't paying their fair share. if you are making even $1 more than someone else, you should bre paying some of that to those poor unfortunates below you...

BULLSH!T.........You don't help someone by giving them everything they need so they don't have to put forth the effort to support themselves.

THere are NO cuts...the cuts are in the future increases. A mere 85 million is nothing to what the POTUS wants to spend (of YOUR money!)

Whatever is charged to the taxpayer is never going to be enough. You can beat these guys. Just join them. Collect. Cheat. Slow down if you can. Go underground for part of your survival. Help the Dems increase the deficit massively. Repubs have done nothing. Being suckers has caused what you read every day here on TOPIX or put up with the vile mouthiness of people all over. They can't stop you from joining them in collecting. And frankly the next few decades are not going to be morning in America bringing in something terrible. When it is over it will be our most shameful era. Eclipsing slavery and other terrible injustices.

Evidently that is not progressively acceptable today. Sorry, it appears it will be a 50/50 thing.

Remember, fellow citizens...these parasites know it. They have to continue this ruse or it will fall apart. They use what you worked for against yourself, claiming the whole thing can not exist without a massive expanding government. Well just in the last two months, Homeland Security purchased two billion rounds of ammo. and now they are purchasing 27 hundred light armored tanks. This type of crap has been going on for many years. What the hell do you think these things are being done for? Unless it is for the end times, don't be the victim. Let them be.
