MeinRS6: bingethinker: How dare people vote for things that will help them!

And who pays for those things?


The "gifts" included college loan reform, so I assume that the next generation of high earners are going to be paying for their own gift.

amiable: Hydra: Have any of you ever read Adam Smith?


Yeah.. Here is something Adam Smith said pertinent to this conversation:

"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."


I'm not sure who this Adam Smith fellow is, but I like the cut of his jib.

I wonder who Romney blamed in 1994 when he lost the Senate election to Ted Kennedy. The pier?

Blathering Idjut: OTOH promising to cut social security, voucherize Medicare, raise taxes on middle class folks and generally fark over the majority of the American voting population making under 250k a year isn't a winning electoral strategy. Go figure.


And yet the people who, you know, actually draft legislation are still GOP controlled. I wonder why the democrats don't have a majority in the house. Go figure.
 
2012-11-15 08:58:39 AM

pseudoscience: So if offering healthcare to low-income citizens is a "gift," then what the fark do you call a 20% tax cut?


If you regard paying taxes as a social obligation, it's free money from the government.
On the other hand, if you think "taxation is theft", it's just a little less "theft".

It makes me want to make sure that my state is on the list to secede. If the democrats cannot play fairly with the republicans I think the only sensible thing is to take the ball and go home... crying... about the ref, and the fans, and the opposing players, and the court, the rules, the fact that their team isn't allowed to run with the ball and has to dribble, the fact that someone called them a name, and the fact that the expensive uniforms don't make a difference.

Yeah! Why should I have to be responsible for myself?


If you end up being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, that's your fault for not taking personal responsibility for your "self." In a purely libertarian free market system, nobody would have an economic incentive to be diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

jso2897: Otherwise, a discount off those taxes is, in fact, a subsidy.


I wonder why they don't call it mortgage interest subsidy, or dependent children subsidy. Nay, I say unto you, why is it not called mortgage interest welfare and dependent children welfare?

You are all MOOCHERS you people who take that mortgage interest subsidy.

Why are POOR PEOPLE, who don't have a mortgage SUBSIDIZING people with houses? Is that what democrats want? I demand that this welfare for the rich end, in the name of fairness.

unexplained bacon: The GOP is as wrong about the reasons they lost as they are arrogant and insulting.

They can't even pretend to give a shiat about anything but the interests of rich white christians, and at the same time absolutely shiat on whole segments of voters. What do they do when this costs them an election?


Rich white christian.. oxymoron alert.

You mean the man who supported the government regulating industries? Passing of legislation to protect workers? backed progressive taxation? Opposed the unregulated free market?

based on your post I assume you aren't talking about the guy who wrote "The Wealth of Nations" but some conservative pundit with the same name.

Hey look on the bright side, Mitt, you can refile your 2011 taxes and score that awesome deduction you "declined" a few months ago.

2012-11-15 09:11:24 AM
Heh... I love the message the GOP is taking from this ass whooping is that they don't need to "moderate" or change their regressive, constipated views and policies; they just need to repackage and rebrand them and all those demographics they lost badly with will flock to them.

Really, I love it. Please... Proceed.
 
2012-11-15 09:13:04 AM

Hydra: theknuckler_33: It's really amusing seeing conservatives behaving as if only conservatives pay taxes.

It's amusing seeing progressives behaving as if only progressives are unselfish or care about others.


I can see why it would appear that way, seeing as how conservatives never say anything that would lead you to believe that they are unselfish or that they care about others.

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."

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 persecution complex. You want to be the victim? You got it buddy! I got you flagged and will dog you and your victim complex for the next four years, lest you forget exactly how bad your candidate was, and how badly he lost.

For the next four years, we will treat you EXACTLY as you've been acting: As victims, and as such, we are going to victimize you every chance we get. We don't like it, but we want you to fit in. You chose the role, not us, so quit crying about your position. It was your decision to be the victim, not ours, we're just more than happy to accommodate you.

Lessee...

-Okay, forgiving student college loan 'interest' is a nice little favor. But the principal is still there, and last I checked, the laws and rules on student loans ensures that will have to be paid almost without exception, even through bankruptcy.

-Obamacare isn't 'free', and that disingenuous chucklefark best stop pretending that being required to BUY healthcare isn't the same thing as getting healthcare coverage for free. Now, if you're below the poverty line, you get some help, as well you should.

-As one might surmise... demonizing the children of a growing and ever more significant part of the population doesn't exactly endear you, or your party, to them. I am not going to penalize someone who came here as a toddler or child. No, I'd rather support them, help them, bring them into the fold. This is the only home they know, and I'll be damned if some xenophobic ass is going to force them to leave and go to what amounts to a foreign nation because it makes them feel 'concerned'.

From now on, GOP presidential candidates will get to choose to be labeled as either "like Bush" or "like Romney".

Not to mention it is really hard for them to accept their declining role in the US. If they really paid attention to demographics (not just minorities increasing but the fact that the GOP plan does not sell to younger voters nearly as well as the Democrat platform) they may see the real reason they lost and will continue to lose for the foreseeable future. I heard a bunch of GOP'ers on NPR this morning saying Mitt was not right enough to get their base out in force. There are no stats to support that claim.

I make all the money in my family. My wife does all the hard work of maintaining our household. Is she a leech? Please let me know, the sanctity of our marriage is in jeopardy!

If the rich people want the people that actually do the work that makes/keeps them rich to pay more in taxes, pay us more in salaries.

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.

clearly unconstitutional

2012-11-15 09:20:36 AM
As soon as he's not trying to get votes, Romney publicly doubles down on the 47% remarks and specifically says that minorities and women are a part of it. This is my shocked face.
 
2012-11-15 09:20:44 AM

MeinRS6: the leeches that contribute nothing and do nothing but take are also part of society, so it's ok to differentiate between the two groups.


Keep farking that mass of bloody feathers - it worked out so well for you last week.

Or just go with Paul Ryan for his next Ayn Rand grave-humping.

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.
