TALK about all the Obama recovery you want… the simple FACTS are those with the financial means to aid in our nation’s recovery are leaving the country in droves.
Ironically, many of those people are probably ultra-wealthy liberal donors. It's like the interview with Will Smith in France who said that everyone should pay their share of taxes. Then he was told it will be 75% in France and Smith responded, "Whoah. God Bless America".

Regardless of anyone’s opinion of these people, one thing seems to be clear, more people are considering it – and actually doing it, since President Obama was elected according to the IRS figures.
So unless something changes – and soon – it may well be that a good portion of our national wealth, will soon be residing with the borders of some other country.

Agree. EVERYONE KNOWS there is no such thing as an Obama recovery - such a claim is nothing but propoganda. There is and has been no recovery.

Absolutely! Those numbers shot up by 700% compared to just a few years ago. They're smart and looking out for their OWN well being. Like many of us, we don't need a babysitter.

Essentially, the Wasserman Schultz talking point has been: "We don't know what Romney's hiding in his shady finances so we need to find out."
So, what is Wasserman Schultz hiding? She has had investments in England, India, Swizerland, Hong Kong, Germany, Japan, and more!
( http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/... )
I really don't care how much or where someone invests his or her own money. However, trying to make it seem like Mitt Romney is unscrupulous when one is doing the same thing is just pathetic.
Right straight out of Alinsky's Rules For Radicals and the Lib playbook.

This is what I don't understand about Democrats:

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have prevented people from using food stamps to buy pornography, tattoos, guns, body piercings, jewelry, and paying fines or bail.

Unemployment dropped faster in states that elected Republican governors in 2010 compared to states that elected Democrats. Just more proof that Democrat policies are not as good.

It doesn't appear that Democrats actually wanted to help the poor, but merely wanted to gain control of more of the economic production in our country.
You are exactly right.

ObamaKare will be remembered as the biggest power grab in modern political history. The ACA has debt and bureaucracy literally written all over it.

If you feel that this is extortion, then you should leave.
If you don't pay rent, you get thrown out. Is that extortion?
If you don't pay your cable bill, it gets shut off. Is that extortion?
I have a choice on whether or not I want to rent or have cable.

What happens if you don't pay your income taxes? Does the government say "Oh ok, we understand." or are you eventually facing an armed individual who intends to deny you your freedom?

Did I say 8 minutes? My bad. 8 days...8-1/2 days to be exact. The federal government spends 85 billion in 8-1/2 days...the same amount that would be generated in revenues in a year from Obama's tax hike.

Think about it. 85 billion a year in revenues by increasing taxes...the same amount the federal government spends in 8-1/2 days.
Still pretty astounding. Don't you think?
You did it in at least two posts I saw, that indicates intent. Whether you flubbed and said "minutes" or if that's really what O'Reilly said doesn't matter to me, one of you were blatantly lying and assuming no one would bother to do the math. Y'all do this all the time and that's why you're considered such clowns. There are real issues at hand, things we could talk about but y'all are too stupid to tackle real issues and instead go for this sideshow shiny object crap.

No, its not astounding, I'm well aware of how quickly the government burns through money. But I'm not the one goggling Beck's retarded chalkboard.
