HST's Dead Carcass: morlinge: I think all this article proves is how much the democrats love to gloat after their victory. Clearly the republican party is trying to be the bigger man, but the democrats just cannot stop spiking the ball. Really disgraceful.

I'd like to point out that more than half the country categorically denied Romney. They didn't just deny him the presidency, they rejected him wholly as an attempted leader, knowing he was lying, outright and completely, about many of his claims, and promises. They smelled his BS like a fart in the car.

The residents of this nation stood up at once and said: No! Not yours! You can't have it. Those that were opposed to his competitor couldn't even be bothered to leave the house to vote for him. He was such an unsaleable force in the political environment, his own kind left him forsaken! That's very telling about a candidate when he can't even whip up his own base, because they know he's full of it.

So, no, we're not spiking the ball. We're congratulating each other on a job well done and you come into OUR party like a drunk ex-wife and start complaining and whining. We politely asked you to leave, but, no you have something to say, you want to ruin it for us. Well, I'm sorry. We're not going to put up with it.

Not only is your candidate a loser, you are, as well. You backed a loser. There are some on your side of the fence that were cogent about the election and stayed home, knowing Romney was a loser, but you had to go balls deep, parade around, showing your ass and making a fool out of yourself during the process. So, when we simply show you how egregiously moronic you were, you fall back on the tried and true Right Wing platform of playing the victim.

Now, mind you, we were gonna let it go, but since you Republicans like to talk about rape so much and how it's not a big deal, we all decided in a secret forum only for Lefties to verbally rape you and your kind every time you decide to show up with your stupid pers ...

Yeah, because rewarding people for being losers is what made America great, amirite?

If there's anything we've learned, it's to remove any incentive to succeed, and to reward people for sitting on their ass and/or being stupid.


You're so right. And we all know, based on history, that when the poor have a hard time finding food, they usually register at Ivy League schools and become hedge fund managers.

Not whining. It was an impressive get out the vote effort. They tracked down people who haven't voted.

"Why haven't you voted yet, citizen?"
"All your neighbors have already voted for Obama."
"Maybe you should vote for Obama too."


I guess Republican GOTV workers would NEVAR! suggest that the people they are trying to get out and vote should vote for Romney, eh? NEVAR!!!

SevenizGud: neenerist: Learning the difference between 'some' and 'all' - otherwise generalized to degree - will raise your arguments above the schoolyard level.

Whatever. Taxing someone less is not giving them anything. It's taking less from them.


for you and all the crying GOPers:


I want a government that does something.
I want a social safety net, I want affordable healthcare, if that means the government needs to get involved, fine. I want modern roads and infrastructure, I want our children, all of them, to have access to top notch education, I want tax incentives for American companies to keep manufacturing jobs in America not move them into China. I want collective bargaining rights for our work force. I want clean water/air/soil...you get the idea.

That's the kind of America I want, and it seems most American voters want that too.

You either don't want those things for the country or you don't seem to understand that they cost money. Either way, you had a chance to vote for what you want. You live in a democracy, and you've been out voted.

If a small tax hike is what it takes to move this country in the direction I'd like to see it go is necessary, fine.
Tax them, tax me I get how this works and I'm saying, do it.

I've never needed government assistance, but I'm glad it's there for people who do. I know several people who've used some form of assistance in hard times that, thanks to the help, are productive tax payers right now. Maybe you don't get how that works.

You and yours can cry all you want. You're wrong, and we're moving on.

Welp, anyone who thought this election might serve as a wake up call to the Republican Party can let go of that dream because it's simply not going to happen. On one hand, my inner four year old is cheering because "ha ha Republicans are too stupid to figure out why they lost and take corrective measures, so we're going to win even bigger in 2016." But my inner adult counters with "but that means America has to do without a sensible opposition party for the foreseeable future. That's not a good thing." We (America and Democrats) need a sensible opposition party to temper the excesses of the party in power, to craft compromise legislation that makes more than just one side happy, to bring alternative ideas to the table (sorry GOP, "no!" is not an alternative idea).

This is how it's going to be until that third party comes along.

What I find most interesting, and what I haven't heard a lot of commentators mention, is that this is essentially a restatement of the 47% line, albeit with a few more Americans included. We spent the whole election trying to figure out what was the "real Mitt" and it turns out it was 47% Mitt. The one and only thing you can count on with Romney is his genuine contempt for the average American.

And he learned nothing. He probably does think that one of the reasons he lost is because he got CAUGHT making the 47% speech, not because the speech reflected something fundamental about him that was both completely transparent and overwhelmingly distasteful.

Thanks for reminding us that we made the right decision, Mitt. I genuinely hope we never hear from you again. Go live your toxic life and leave us alone.

I just figured we were talking about income tax.

But yeah - EVERYONE pays in. No one really gets a free ride. Hell, even people on public assistance pay taxes.

Some states even charge sales tax on staple food.

2012-11-15 09:27:31 AM  
Let's oversimplify the electoral process and see if we can find a problem. Set complexity level to 'Flintsones'.

Say Fred needs 50.001% to 'win' an election as Grand Poobah of the Loyal Order of Water Buffalos. Unfortunately, he's effectively alienated 47% of the members when an angry rant over the wall with Barney becomes public knowledge throughout Bedrock.

This means the Flintstone/Rubble ticket must win 94% of the remaining votes if they ever hope to wear the sacred hat.

Fred's campaign strategy is to focus mainly on the interests of 20% of the members.

Who is likely to win - Fred Flintstone or incumbent Poobah Barock O'BamBam?

Here, I'll dumb it down far enough that even you can understand.

Mortgage interest deduction is not welfare.

Yes it is - and it's not a bad thing. "Welfare" is good. That's why our Constitution charges the government with promoting the general welfare.


That was talking about General Welfare of the 3rd infantry, he was just a 2 star general at the time, he clearly deserved 3 stars.

Doesn't matter who SHE liked. Paul Ryan is the one who proselytized for Objectivism.

He is the one who called her the inspiration for him getting into politics and said she made the best moral case for capitalism.

Besides, we know EXACTLY the kind of man she loved - the sociopathic murderer.

How about working AT ALL?

Why would a poor person go get a job AT ALL if he can get everyone else to give him enough money to get everything he needs without working? Already there are GENERATIONS of people who have NEVER worked. At all. Ever.

Guess which way they vote.

Just admit you were given the good graces of your parents hard-work and weath and that's why you do not want to share - i.e., you're a selfish little twat. Or, that you "had to struggle all your life to be semi-successful and everyone should have to struggle to!" is the way you think - i.e., a raging asshole.

So now it's not that the poor don't pay taxes, it's that they don't pay enough? 10% on 25K in earnings is not enough, but a measly 14% on 20-some million is too much? WTF kind of mind thinks something like that?

See how the argument changes? First it's "They're all leeches who pay nothing and just want free stuff," now it's "Well, they don't pay ENOUGH taxes."

I still like that she thought the creative people were good, and the people that buy/own them are shiat.

Even though she fled Russia, and hated communism, she agreed with the interpretation of "he who does not work, should not eat." as it applies to a lot of CEOs.

If you are making less than 35K how could you be doing anything other than sitting on your ass? Unless you are just completely idiotic, and doing something like mowing lawns for $1 per lawn.

If you take advantage of all the various Uncle Sucker programs it comes out to about $22K/year. So why would you even bother doing something other than sitting on your ass down on filth-and-muck end of the ladder?
