It is a shame that the Democrats are not willing to compromise and agree to a more reasonable plan.

MadSkillz: The Repubs not wanting to budge on increasing taxes is leading to increasing taxes.

I believe that actually fits the textbook definition of irony.

I don't know why everyone is criticizing Obama.  The guy cut his trip to Hawaii short!  Is there no end to this man's sacrifice?  I only wanted a President.  Little did I know that I would be led by Christ himself.  I wish I could eat a house salad topped with his spit!

So, something like 1% of people on social programs, mostly whites?

If you think 1% of social spending is all the abuse there is, I've got ocean front property in Colorado to sell you.

By all means, feel free to prove me wrong with numbers. Or is this one of those "gut feeling" things.

No, this is one of those "I live in the real world and watch it daily" things. You have no idea how many people I watch in a day use food stamps to pay for pop. That's 100% abuse the government could easily stop. Or candy for that matter.


Son, I don't really think your opinion, from your vantage point as a cashier in a grocery store, is really one that carries a lot of weight

No, they drive Escalades.


Well...then those farkers at the food stamp office are holding out on me & the wife...we didnt get a damned Escalade. All we have is this 99 malibu with 155k miles and a 04 Cavalier with 160k miles. Yeah, supporting a family of 4 on $18-20k/year sucks.

I want my farking Caddy...and it better have big chrome rims on it too...just like the one the Mexican chick who goes to the food bank everyday drives. Well, OK, its a Tahoe not an Escalade. Not kidding. I pass a food bank everyday while taking my kid to school. Id say 75% of the vehicles coming in and out of it are nicer than mine.It really bothers me as thats supposed to be the last line of sustenance for the desperately poor...and it looks like theres a lot of nowhere near poor people loading up there.

dennysgod: So from what I heard we're going to Clinton area rates.

If I recall wasn't during most of the Clinton area we had a budget surplus and a strong economy.


NO! It was a time of social decadence and moral decay due to presidential sexual transgressions. It was our darkest hour as a nation.

Jesus, if you lived in the 1950s you'd LOVE to have a top marginal rate of 39%.


The impact wasn't as bad. A 1950s dollar could buy a lot more in the 1950s than what a 2012 dollar can currently buy.

DrPainMD: As usual, the press (at the request of the government) is making a mountain out of a molehill. According to the CBO, when we go off the "cliff," government spending will be initially cut by $9 billion, or 0.3%. By 2014 U.S. government spending will be above where it was this year. The deficit will go down by $487 billion. Of that $487 billion, the aforementioned $9 billion will be due to spending cuts. The other $478 billion will occur thanks to increased tax revenues. When the economy fails to revive, this will be blamed on the alleged "austerity" program of the federal government, without noting that the laughable "spending cuts" were vastly exceeded by the tax increases.


Don't use facts here, it just gets the libs upset.
It is all about emotion and feelings and "fairness" for them.

WRONG... Republicans agreed to my dismay to raise taxes on anyone making a million+ and Obama still said no deal. But since you are a liberal democrat idiot I assume you are used to being wrong every day.

Oh for god's sake, wake up asshat. Both sides want us to go over the cliff. The US government has doubled in size in the past ten years, spending must be cut and taxes must be raised for everyone. This way each party can point the finger at the other party, and nobody has to take the blame for doing what must be done. But don't worry, your section eight house will be untouched.

I can't remember that scene. What are you attempting to communicate? Did I get "irony" wrong again? It's a difficult concept for such a simple word.


It's from The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings. Bender is confirming that what is being said on stage is, in fact, ironic.

And a little over a year and a half ago I identified as Randian.
