netizencain: In part, the tax decline was due to the dramatic decrease in average income that year.

This has nothing to do with Obama.


Something is confused here with the terms tax rates and tax decline. One is a dependent variable, while the other is a fixed term. If the article ( I hadn't read) is talking about tax rates, then we're dealing with a fixed number mandated by law. If it is actually the lowest "rates" in 30 years, then that can only be disputed when lower "rates" are presented in argument.
This does not mean that I approve the low rates on higher incomes. So I don't know if this is anything for supporters to brag about. I guess it's to just get the Tea Party to shut up.
 
2012-07-11 10:43:03 PM  
To be fair, for teabaggers, being taxed at all qualifies as "enough". It's stupid, but it's true.

shotglasss: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Really the only thing Romney has to do to get Teabaggers to vote for him is to be white.

And the blacks will vote for Obama because?????

He's black, no other reason.


Naturally. Why, if Hillary was president, she wouldn't get a single black vote.

Hey look, that was three years ago during Obama's first year in office when he had nothing to do with said tax rate.

Y'know, I'd actually respect the Teabaggers somewhat if they'd just come out and admit that they can't stand having an uppity n****r in the White House. As much as I hate bigots, I hate liars more. Lying to cover up for bigotry is like how-to-piss-me-off squared.

How about lying and falsely accusing others of bigotry? Are you okay with that, or are you a hypocrite?

OF COURSE you have proof that everyone who doesn't like Obama is a racist, right? Figures from the 2008 election DID show racism --- 95% of blacks voted for Obama. That's the only racism involved systemically.

Awesome.

I love me some Obama Eisenhower.

Now let's "convince" these oligarchs to loosen their purse strings, no?

It's not his fault - knee-jerk accusations of racism are what the TV keeps telling him to do when confronted with complex ideas like "people with opposing viewpoints."

The Tea Party is the reason for the low taxes. We put them there after obama strong armed, lied and bribed his democrats into a socialized big govt health package that 60% of Americans didn't want. That being the law now, thanks to the dems new friend Roberts and his chief justicing (slang for doing something wrong just so libs won't hate you). You're about to see a bunch of taxes dropped square on the backs of the working middle class. obama should've been focused on jobs and the economy instead of figuring out a way to create a larger govt. That said, here's your tax.
Here's some things that also happened in the last 3 years under obama. 13 million people unemployed. He said he was going to fix that, what's taking him so long? Unemployment for blacks is 14.4%. Hey black people, you helped elect the first black president, Clinton. Then the first gay president, obama. Are you better off now with the hopey/changy crap? Here's a milestone for obama, 45 million Americans on foodstamps or some taxpayer funded benifit program. What's the tally for large cities filling for bankruptcy under obama, 2/3/4?
All you über rich 1%'rs (those making over $250k), rich by obama standards, should be glad the Tea Party is in a position to keep this tax and waster in check. The alternative is obama sucking this country dry so he can pay off his friends.

dickfreckle: meat0918: Where is the Tea Party now? Calling you a fool.

My mother didn't believe me until I showed her chart with the rates.

Her personal economy was she and step-dad hit the over $250,000 in combined income their first year of marriage due to early retirement, cashing out some vacation, and having to withdraw some cash from their 401K for medical expenses, so they personally had higher tax rates for a while. This was in 2005 though, which I reminded her was before Obama was elected.

Now, she accepted that taxes were really low, but kept saying he was gonna raise taxes soon.

She has said since 2008, that even as a life long Democrat, she "just doesn't trust" Obama. She voted Hillary in the Michigan primary, and I think she's registered might have changed to Independent now.

I finally figured out my mom's a bad in the closet racist though when she admonished my sister for taking my niece to a "nursery run by a black woman" and her little girl was picking up all sorts of "black mannerisms and sass" and then finished it up with "Now I'm not racist but it's just not ok".

Glad I live 2000+ miles away.

I also had a revelation about my parents, which became blatantly clear once Obama was elected but had brewing for years while FOX barked from a giant television in the living room.

One year I came home to visit and noticed they no longer subscribed to Time or the daily newspaper, both of which were staples in our house while I was growing up. Dad made some remark about how he didn't trust the "liberal media" but I really didn't give it much thought.

Then the derp started to be carbon copies of something I had read or heard from Hannity the previous day. The fwd:FWD:FWD began to avalanche in my inbox. One day he finally just came out and said, "Stupid n**gers destroyed the economy by taking out loans they couldn't afford." That word had never been uttered in our household before. Ever.

Most of my life, my dad always struck me as an even-keeled guy. Definite ...

Yes, I hold FOX largely responsible. They didn't hold a gun to his head and force him to watch, but their very existence has proven to be a net loss to society. And it's only going to get worse. I'm just glad I turned out to be straight, or he probably would have disowned me.

Now you know how rational people feel watching others be programmed by the MSM. Most of you don't believe something happened if it doesn't appear on MSM. It's a lot like Soviet state-run media.

It's not at ALL like Fox is out there trying to influence opinion, while the MSM gives you the straight facts. Dan Rather is the epitome of that -- standing behind a known forgery, because it made an anti-Bush point. Whether someone watches only Fox, or only MSM, they are not getting the full story. To be informed one should watch (assuming only TV news...) MSM or Fox, whichever they prefer, for no more than 75% of the time, and watch the OTHER for at least 25%. That way, you will at least be exposed to issues that "your" side is covering up.

Look up old clips from when CNN started out -- man, they were straight-up objective, and it was great. That didn't last long. Once Ted Turner started banging Hanoi Jane Fonda, the leftist slant came in. Coincidence? I dunno, but it seems likely that the little head started "directing" the news so as to reduce turmoil on the home front.

In your snip you omitted my main point - don't extrapolate a few idiots posting from basements to the rest of us. Anyone with a 5th grade education knows that the president has little power over this issue. He (or she) can make things worse by agitating producing regions, but have very little impact on driving the price down.

No one I know (or respect) is crowning Obama because gas prices are currently dropping. He made a few moves, but it's still not really his award to accept. It's not my fault the two liberals you ever met are farking retarded.

Dan Rather farks up = the entire "MSM" is a sham.

Got it.

I'd also love to see multiple examples of this "leftist slant" CNN has. Get your head out of your ass, green-posting attention whore - CNN goes out of their way to present nutjob right wing conspiracies as legitimate viewpoints in an effort to avoid being labeled "liberal" by starfishes like you.

Not that it stopped you from making the claim, anyway. Baseless claims are your SOP, so you may as well include the media as a dark, evil force conspiring against you when you can't admit your shortcomings.

FOX is demonstrably, vehemently biased. Farking Helen Keller would see it after 90 seconds of random viewing. CNN is demonstrably vapid and worthless, but not liberal.. Please, please provide examples of CNN's extensive campaign to brainwash viewers into blind and rabid support of one particular ideology. I'll save you some time...you can't. Unless you count your blogger patriots who are every it as full of sh*t as you are.

FOX and CNN both suck, but one is clearly more irresponsible then the other. Even you have to notice this, just as sure as you observe how water takes the form of whatever container it's in. If you don't, well, there's really no point in continuing a conversation.

actually it says that the taxes are 4% lower on the bottom 50% too. but you're free to omit that if you like.


Well that is given to the lower 50% on and off for like ever. The point is it adds to lower taxes paid now is because that 50% of lower wage earners has gotten bottom barrel low. So yes I guess I did omit it as it means nothing.

ManRay: Rates didn't change. What's the difference?


Oh, but they did. Maybe not for you, but rates changed quite dramatically.

pciszek: netizencain: 2006 High gas prices? You hate Bush? It's Bush's fault

I don't recall any liberals blaming Bush for the high gas prices--we we more like "It's your fault you bought a @#$%^&*! Hummer, you moran!"


Oh, there were liberals who blamed Bush. But yeah, people like me...I had no sympathy for people who bought the ginormous SUVs. Naturally, as the owner of a hybrid, I get all kinds of shiat about stupid liberals and their stupid liberal cars.

/I don't care, I get 50mpg
//sure it sounds smug, but I can drive 25-35 miles more on a gallon of gas than most people
