Baryogenesis: Well except for the fact the top 1% have been raking in an increasing share of income and wealth for the past 30 years and their taxes over the past decade are the lowest they've been since the great depression yet the economy still sucks. It's almost as if more money in the hands of the rich has nothing to do with the health of the economy. They don't magically shiat out jobs because they've got cash.

TheAbstractor: Cubs300: Funk Brothers: Good.

Boehner should tell Obama there will be no deal unless the tax increases on the rich are taken off the table. Why should we be raising taxes on the rich and let those who are not rich a free pass?

I'll put it in simple numbers. Tax a millionaire an extra 5% and he loses $50,000 to the government . . . .

Tax a millionaire $50,000 and $50,000 disappears from someone who knows how to make millions of dollars and goes to a bunch of bureaucrats and politicians who only know how to buy votes, protect their turf and waste money in ways that would boggle the mind of most honest people.  That money's gone, and if it creates a job or otherwise sustains or nourishes a human being, it will be completely by accident.

If you let the rich keep their money, they will use that money to make more money. If you give that money to poor people, they will use that money to make more poor people.

And that's just the pragmatic argument.  We're not even getting into the moral problem of any group of people taking $50,000 from anyone just because they think they will spend it more intelligently and morally than the  victim taxpayer.

Seriously, just WTF is wrong with you people!  At least when religious zealots try to control people and their property through laws, they've got a voice in their head or a 2000 year old book telling them to do it.  Libtard socialists don't even have that.  All you have to promote your ideas---ideas which have failed every single farking time they've been tried in every modern civilized country--are some vague notions of social justice to gloss over what any honest, rational person would recognize as motives based in envy and misanthropy.


Wow.

How can someone as stupid as you NOT be on my Fav list in red already!

/Thanks for the update!

We gotta start cutting the budget somewhere -- let's start with no salaries for members of the House and Senate until they start doing their jobs and running the government. Which means compromising. And staying at work late.

Seriously, if you want to talk about "sucking on the government teat," the House of Representatives is the poster child.

ariseatex: FTA: That combative talk drew anger from Republican senators who have been grappling for a deal with the Democratic majority in that chamber. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, called the president's comments "very unbecoming of where we are at this moment" and added, "My heart's still pounding."

"I know the president has fun heckling Congress," Corker said. "I think he lost probably numbers of votes with what he did."

[img151.imageshack.us image 276x273]
I heard the speech twice. There was NOTHING "heckling" in there.


I just wrote to Corker and explained that I am a bit upset that he just raised my taxes. I added that I'll be working for his opposition at the first opportunity. If anything gets to these little shiats, it's this. I recommend it, it's fun.

shower_in_my_socks: I just got a job that pays $90k/year. Can someone tell me if I'm better off quitting and moving to a shack in the forest? I have a couple of pages written for my manifesto, and at least 10 more in outline form. My hair's a little thin on top, but I can grow a wicked crazy beard if I commit to it.


No, you are one of the dirty no good middle class who are crushing the ability of the rich to be job creators by not working for $90/year. Shame on you!

I worked 66 hours last week, I'm scheduled to work 74 hours this week...  tomorrow alone, I'll be working a 14 hour day. Right now, tens of thousands of minimum wagers are cooking, cleaning, fixing toilets, and doing the jobs that need to be done. John Boehner's House, on the other hand, doesn't give a damn about the job they haven't done in years... they don't care about the tax hikes they put into  place before, they don't care about the cuts and who they hurt... they're going to get their money no matter what... not only that, congress got a raise for 2013, so happy new year to them. Entitled... lazy... intransigent, spoiled, greedy, unwilling to do the hard work that others are more willing to do... no, it's not a union, it's a political party, say hi to the new GOP.

Infernalist: Kome: heap: iaazathot: Wow, I mean WOW! How stupid do you have to be to do what the Republicans are doing?

the fist step to answering this question is arriving at a common measurement or unit of stupidity.

43 MegaPalins would be my guess, but i could see others opting for a Perry or Bachmann based measurement.

Who would use a Bachmann based measurement? That's just retarded.

Technically, 100 Bachmanns equal one Perry. 100 Perries equals one Palin. There is no unit higher than the Palin, so we're forced to use MegaPalin.


Considering the magnitude of one Bachmann, that's a whole lot of stupid. A Weapon of Mass Derp-struction!

hawcian: Wait, I'm sorry. The President lambasted Congress for waiting until the last second, which they did, and the Republicans' response is, "Well, he's being mean, so we don't feel like compromising anymore. Enjoy your recession!"

Are you farking kidding me? It is your goddamn jobs you farking asshats! "The President was mean" does not imply that it's okay to (probably) screw over the US economy!


I've met quite a few people like this.
You know those shows out these days, like Restaurant Impossible, where some guy who knows he's farked his business calls in a consultant to tell him where he went wrong-and the consultant does, but HARD?

You don't get to see on TV the ones where the guy says "Well, I never! Yeah yeah my business is bleeding red ink, you found a dozen major health code violations, caught my sous chef pimping out the waitress on the security cam, and found the waitress putting on a show for a client using a cucumber that she then put right back in the cooler, but you have NO RIGHT to yell at me!"

I've been the consultant on a few occasions...

The @ssholeness and incompetence of the GOP is treasonous. They have betrayed our entire system of government. In a Democracy, you compromise to get shiat done, especially when the people at the other end of the bargaining table have the F*CKING MANDATE from the American People. This hostage-taking bullshiat has to stop, and the MORON GOP supporters need to either die from embarrassment, or wake the f*ck up and stop voting for these Teabagger clowns

Damned "Add Comment" button.

...financially over ideology. You're likely invested in companies that rely heavily (or soley) on government purchasing. Taking a machete to federal spending is likely to decrease your income on a greater level than some nominal tax increase. If you're willing to sacrifice your financial well being over an ideological objection to paying taxes, you're a fool.

If you're not wealthy enough for the proposed increase to affect you, then you're an even bigger fool. You're willing to tank the economy over a tax increase that won't be felt by you.

We've dug a big hole, but we can still get out of it. I'm nowhere near the top 1%, but I would readily go back to paying a pre-W tax rate if it were part of a broader strategy to protect the economy and decrease deficit spending.

Freddy is gay, but he's working too.
Nelly, Pat, and Richard are all working.
Susan, the Republican, is being farked in the ass by the mailroom boy while she photocopies her tits as an email attachment to the entire company, while filling out sexual harassment forms and writing a morally-outraged memo about why she thinks Freddy should be fired for his sinful preference.  The company's strategy meeting is cancelled, again, because the mix of vodka and prescription drugs made Susan vomit all over the conference table.

Our government is functioning much like this, except that in this example people have jobs.

I live with my mom. The Tea Party is ruining this country. Or, I should say, the Koch brothers are ruining this country, while hiding behind a bunch of white evangelical rubes.

Obama is ruining this country. Haven't you seen all the warning signs? Obama was born on the Kingdom of Hawaii. The Kingdom of Hawaii was ruled by a Monarchy/Dictator. This tax increase on the rich is leading us towards the road to dictatorship under Obama and towards a unprecedented third term.

When you have companies such as Hobby Lobby or other small businesses employing over 50 workers resisting certain parts of the healthcare law over religious freedom, something is wrong in this country.
