These jack-asses don't think about people as individuals, only as groups. That's why you see liberal heads explode at the sight of black conservatives.
This was exactly both our thoughts on the subject. I call myself Scottish American because it's only fair if people can be called African American. No, I'm not from Scotland nor have I ever been there, but it's where my ancestry is from. And boy howdy, did my ancestors have it WAY rougher than than American slaves.

Yes. Fun fact, he was shunned by friends for not voting democrat. I lol'd because he said he didn't even know who was running in 08

According to the media and internet we should have to hate each other and that a white atheist and black muslim CANNOT be friends or agree on anything.

The gov't is too important and efficient to shave off 2%. WE MUST TAX THE RICH!


I know where we can find that 84 billion BTW:

Quote:
"According to IRS data, the “richest 1% paid $84 billion more in taxes in 2007 than they had in 2000,” a 23% increase. In addition, their “share of the overall income tax burden grew, climbing from 37% in 2000 to 40% in 2007.” All this occurred even though their rates went down."

HOW in the WORLD can you INCREASE TAX REVENUE while REDUCING THE TAX RATE?!!! That's VOODOO ECONOMICS!!!!

On the same subject, the OMB released a study that said via the government we effectively subsidize the top 10 banks in the country to the tune of .8% of their revenue. That may not sound much, but it also equals $84 BILLION. WAITWHAT??!! Obama's policies favor the largest banks at the expense of every tax-paying American?! Holy crap, this is NEWS to me!

Does this mean that changing crony capitalism laws would save Americans $84 Billion and reduce the "too big to fail, owned by Obama" status of the largest banks? Well, yes.

So, if I understand correctly, the "Liberal Media" edited out a statement made by the wife of a Democratic politician, which could be construed as being supportive of anti-gun legislation, which is a stereotypically Liberal platform? And they did this to further their own hoplophobic Liberal Agenda?

Jason's head is going to explode.

Brain - you should get a part time job with the GOP or Tea Party or Koch Brothers trolling comments sections on mainstream media outlets and put this volume of links and quotes to use.

I don't have the motivation to disect that bank graphic but I did speed-read the last link about government "loafers."

While I am usually the first to point out that not "all government spending is bad," I am totally open to admitting not all government spending is "good" or efficient. I'm against public sector unions in general so I'd be curious to hear from someone trying to make a rational and informed argument for why the Federal government should be paying for union members to be acting as union reps.

That's what the union dues should be used for.

I don't like to associate with anybody.

When I read comments by rebuplicans on say Briebart about Ron Paul or alike, I can't believe what I'm reading. Likewise, when I read comments from libertarians to republicans, I can't take them seriously.

So I just post things I, myself, find intersting. Try to add a little stupid humor to it all and self satisfy myself.

I wont claim to be a republican, a libertarin, or atheist. I dont want to be thrown into the mix with them, nor would I ever get into politics myself; poeple would assassinate me.

You just explained the Stimulus program in one paragraph. Pay out stimulus money to government unions, which gets "recycled" back to the Democrat party. End result is we all pay to keep the Dems in power. Cool.

Funny thing Jack, I wondered if you had the same "pay to lurk" deal with George Soros.

You have no idea how to wrap your brain around my existence, do you?


"He doesn't agree that all government spending is bad?! He must be a dumbocrat liberal that thinks all government spending is good!"

"Wait, he just said not all government spending is good but not all spending is bad... He is against public sector unions but says the USA isn't going to go bankrupt like Greece and rejects the economic framework of the people that have been more wrong than right for the past two decades... He doesn't think Obama is the Socialist Antichrist who has come to bring the end to the American Empire but he did vote Republican..."

"**** it, I'm sticking with the dumbocrat liberal label."

I listened to a radio interview with Pete Peterson on my drive home from work today. I yelled at my radio. I thought of you.

I've got your number Jack. It became obvious when you broke out your charts and graphs to explain how trillion dollar deficits were fine because we've got a printing press in the basement.
