Why would you be disappointed? Morgan Freeman is a well known racist. He's also an extremely wealth "artist," which means there's a 99.9% chance he'll be a bleeding heart liberal.

When a black celebrity endorses someone other than a black candiate you should be SHOCKED.

Hell, Stacy Dash is getting death threats for endorsing Romney publically, from the useful idiots and endentured slaves.


It's like when Color of Change prints and sells t-shirts that read "Kayne was Right," I relation to his statement, "George Bush hates black people." And then go on a campaign to get Glenn Bleck off the air because he stated once on his on his show, in relation to Obama's policies, that he is a "racist" with "a deep-seated hatred for white people."

You just need to read/watch Dr. Marc Lemont Hill, and then you can understand the mindset. It's a horrible horrible warped perspective.

Yeah you're right brain. I saw Dash getting flamed by endorsing Romney. Sad.

President Barack Obama said on Thursday that “we got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system."

Quote:
According to the Congressional Budget Office, however, the government will lose about $24 billion on the bailout.
“but we also passed a historic law to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts for good,” Obama said in Miami Thursday.

Define "the bailout" as used above. There were a number of programs, some involving the financial system and some involving things like GM and Chrysler. Theoretically, Obama could be correct and your quote RE: the CBO analysis could also be correct without contradiction (though with obfuscation).

You do like pictures and charts...

(but you probably won't like this one)




Edit: It says that the current recovery is better than most systemic (global financial) crises but not as good as the average recovery of most borderline banking crises.

I assume your graph is the same data as this. Keep in mind I think it is still wrong because it doesn’t break out the idle rich .01% oligarchs like Romney who pay less than those in poverty for which Ryan’s plan would make the idle rich tax rate Zero.

Clearly from looking at historic data all we need to do is eliminate tax for oligarchs and all the Jobs they will create will make the plan revenue neutral. Look at all the jobs the rich tax cuts are creating now.

"Idle Rich" infers that he didn't earn his money. He did. And then he governed Massachusetts for $1/year. And then he rescued the Olympics for free. And he gives more to charity than this whole damn forum combined.

You and the NYT sound petty.

Edit: capital gains has already been taxed. You're seeing the money taxed a second time, and then crying foul because Romney's tax rate is so low. Not.
