    lol. indeed.



    looks like its time for another Civil War.

    the first one was for the right to enslave human beings, this one will be to protect millionaires and billionaires from losing tax-breaks.

    the plot thickens. got any more hyperbole coming our way?
    I find it disgusting that we have a system where a bunch of people can vote up the taxes of a minority and pay no tax increases themselves. If we have a flat tax that would not be possible because if you want the rich to pay more you will have to pay more yourself

    the real slavery is making someone else pay for your existence because you have more votes and the pimps in office pander to you

    more hyperbole. tone it down my friend, its getting silly.

    comparing human slavery to having to pay 3% more in FIT, is pretty darn ridiculous.

    LOL that is really funny. So you are saying the GOP has no excessive spending or government programs that it uses to buy votes. John Boehner thanks you.

    Are you actually advocating for a flat tax AGAIN?

    I think he's advocating taxes only for the middle-class and poor.

    The rich make the jobs, so they shouldn't be burdened with taxes, I guess.

    sort of like automatic pistols? Its not hyperbolic

    it was noted by men far wiser than you and I that a democracy fails once the public realizes it can vote itself the contents of the public treasury.

    think about that for a while

    Yeah, on what, Boehner's tobacco subsidies? Who gives a ****. Those having nothing to do with our debt crisis. Democrats, stop trying to look like you are devoted to cutting spending by cutting low income heating assistance. Republicans, stop thinking the world is ending because you are voting to end corn subsidies.
