Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Repeal would actually save money instead of cost more. We could then layoff IRS workers and the private sector would start hiring people for "full time" jobs again, you moron.
lol! The last time cons tried to pull a similar trick was a couple of years ago when they claimed the renewal of the bushie boy tax cuts would stimulate the economy.

And once they got it, poof! Nothing.

Equipment is a business expense, just like raw materials and wages. Businesses pay taxes on profits, not revenue.

If you want to replace all income taxes with a consumption tax, go ahead.

It's not possible we can keep going in this direction indefinitely before it catches up to us.
Sorry it took so long to respond.
Really Carol? What direction is that? The CBO announced that the deficit dropped 32% in the last seven months of the fiscal year. In 2009 the deficit was 10% of GDP, for the fiscal year 2014 it's projected to be 5.3%. Private sector employment is continuing to grow. Home prices are on the rise leaving fewer home owners under water. Auto sales are up.
So just where are we going that we shouldn't?
Do you even have a clue what you're talking about?

<quoted text>Viable is part of the wording of Roe V Wade. In other words, the killing of a VIABLE fetus is a crime--murder. However, not allowing abortions after six weeks, or twelve weeks, or even twenty weeks is unconstitutional, which is why ten/twelve states currently have retraining orders against their legislature's (republican) laws that have decided that if they can't overturn Roe V Wade they'll just be as ignorant and childish as they are wont to be and pretend it doesn't exist. Those same legislators that subsidize corporations and corporate farms but are outraged if a hungry family gets $136 a month in SNAP benefits, are downright righteous about spending millions to fight an obviously losing position in court.
As to Virginia, the proposed law, which led to Bob McDonald being called Governor Vaginal Probe, was omitted from the final bill because Bob became embarrassed by a few other scandals in his wheelhouse. The current republican candidate wants to bring it back as well as deny all abortions in the state. Wisconsin? Well, they learned from Virginia's mistakes. " In order to achieve most of that with the “quality consistent with current medical practice”, a transvaginal ultrasound must be used. Oh, but they didn’t SAY vaginal probe. Republicans learned after the Virginia debacle. They found a new way to mandate vaginal ultrasounds without saying it."
I'm sorry you're so stupid, Batty, but it's your own fault and none of my own.
It was not a unanimous vote by the Supreme Court. Seven of nine judges determined their superiority over states' rights.

Justices Byron White and William Rehnquist wrote emphatic dissenting opinions in this case.

White wrote:

"I find nothing in the language or history of the Constitution to support the Court's judgment. The Court simply fashions and announces a new constitutional right for pregnant women and, with scarcely any reason or authority for its action, invests that right with sufficient substance to override most existing state abortion statutes...In my view, the court's judgment is an improvident and extravagant exercise of the power of judicial review that the Constitution extends to this Court."

...Justice White was absolutely correct. The court's decision was an "improvident and extravagant exercise by judicial review".

Seven people took it upon themselves to determine a federal law that involves matters of life and death without any regard to many people's personal beliefs and usurping state's rights and the will of the people.

A law that goes against half the country's beliefs should not be decided by seven people - or even nine people.

What if the majority of judges were extremely conservative and interpreted the Constitution that leaned towards the traditional values of the right?

I'm quite sure you'd be empathetic to how some of us feel about Roe v Wade if the shoe were on the other foot.

Fortunately for you, the shoe was on the left. This time.

The former head of Britain's intelligence agency has threatened to expose new details about the state of affairs leading up to the Iraq war.
Sir Richard Dearlove, who helmed the MI6 from 1999 to 2004, told the UK's Mail On Sunday that he has spent the last year writing "a record of events surrounding the invasion of Iraq from my then professional perspective." Dearlove told the Mail that he has been planning to leave his account as a record for scholars, but may reveal the details sooner if he doesn't agree with the findings of Britain's Chilcot Inquiry, which is investigating the country's role in the lead-up to the Iraq War:
'My intention is that this should be a resource available to scholars, but after my decease (may be sooner depending on what Chilcot publishes). I have no intention, however, of violating my vows of official secrecy by publishing any memoir.'

And Trayvon was a troubled angry teen who chose to use his fists to cause great bodily harm instead of kept walking.
There's a law against using throwing the first punch and using your fists to fracture facial bones and physically overtaking someone with potential deadly force even if you think they have falsely suspected you of wrongdoing.
It's called assault and battery. As soon as you do that, you make the possible perpetrator the victim and take your chances in losing the fight that you started.
If Zimmerman hadn't had a gun for protection, Trayvon would have been arrested and, if help didn't arrive, possibly for murder.
Because, certainly, you don't think he was going to stop trying to bash Zimmerman's head using deadly force until he yelled "uncle". Do you?
Zimmerman made a mistake getting out of his car.
Trayvon broke the law.
If Zimmerman hadn't had his weapon, he would have stayed in his vehicle like he was supposed to.

I'm not convinced that lowering taxes on high incomes and raising taxes on low incomes is "fair".
However, Republicans will never go for a plan that eliminates their write-offs and taxes capital gains at the same rate as other income.
It just isn't going to happen. Listen closely, they keep saying they would favor "flat tax" on "taxable income." Tax cheats can't be trusted.
Would you favor eliminating tax-free investments such as municipal bonds?

Political Assassination and the Crimes of War: The “Unnatural Death” of Dr. David Kelly
The context in which Dr Kelly did his duty for the UN and the UK has been outlined. The intelligence for targeting, bridgeheads etc was in place. The paramount war criminal and psychopath, Anthony Blair, conspired with Bush in April 2002 at Crawford over blood oozing steaks to tear into Iraq. The black propaganda machine changed gear. A succession of signatories of The Project for the New American Century began appearing nightly, courtesy of the State Broadcaster, the BBC. We could soon tell Wolfowitz from Bolton, and Perle from Bolton. Mangold tried to scare the pants off vulnerable members of the UK public in September 2002 with sarin in the Tokyo tube and with all the focus on the rogue regime. The Sun carried the headline “Brits 45mins from doom” to its 6 million readers. The prescription of Oded Yinon from the ‘Israeli’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs was being followed to the letter (9).“Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel’s targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria.”

And so it was, that against majority opinion in the UK and the truth, a massive invasion and bombardment started 22nd March 2003. It had been planned since 1988.(10) A sceptical British public became more certain that the hell had been conjured up and brought to earth. On May 29 the author heard Andrew Gilligan at 6.20 am on the premier propaganda programme, the BBC’s Today, say that a source had told him the ‘September’ dossier had been enhanced.(There was probably no mention of the ‘Iraq Dossier’ of 3rd February which within 3 days was shown by Rangwala to be fake throughout.(11)) The hunt started slowly, but soon the ‘government’ hounds were in full cry. Hoon and Campbell were out in front. Journalists were encouraged to call the MoD and to state the name of a suspect. Given that experts in the field were few, David Kelly’s identity as a possible source soon emerged. This act of treachery was wrong on two counts. Firstly the confidentiality of the names of public servants in charges of this sort is usually maintained. Secondly, anybody with his ‘security’ attachments should have had his identity concealed both for his sake and for the operational integrity of the establishments. The furore flowing from the ‘outing’ was fierce. The quarry felt the heat of slavering hounds about his neck.

He was called, improperly given his post, before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons on the 15th, two days before he ‘walked’. The BBC film of an anxious man wheeling quickly into the elaborate building with his minders was played numerous times and perhaps to reinforce a picture of a man at the end of his tether. Later, at the Hutton Inquiry, it was reported this committee had concluded he was not Gilligan’s source. He was interrogated by the Intelligence and Security Committee the next day. The transcript (12) conveys a picture of a composed and honest man. There is evidence of self-delusion however:-

Howarth How did you arrive at your figure of 30% probability? It is appears to have a kind of exactitude, or is it meant to be merely illustrative?

Kelly Its illustrative, as an estimate

The only reason for the increase in home prices in most areas is low inventory because the volume of home-building has been extremely low for the last six years.
