    versus 14 dem senators who stood up for shared sacrifice

    Senate Overwhelmingly Passes Tax-Cut Package, 81-19

    it happened during the duck, a pathetic performance

    in the house, it was 143 to 112

    not a lot of normal americans there

    if you forced yourself to link more you wouldn't say such silly things

    I would say taxes are way down the list. They matter far less than many argue.

    I think I gave examples earlier. But let me try again. Here's a real life example. There's a wife and mother who is ill, mental illness, husband has to take her and the kid to work with him, for everyone's safety. He could quit work, go on welfare, but not his way, not how he was brought up. He loses the car. He has to use the company truck. He has too few dollars, no health insurance, and the wife is running up bills. He needs a diversion for the child, gets a TV. He needs a way to call for help when he needs it. He gets a cell phone, even though his house form has been shut off due to lack of payment. He has a computer his brother in law gave him. So he has those things, but food is hard to come by, so he eats a the home of family memebrs and friends too often, takes a lot of gruff about bad decisions, but he doesn't know what else he can do, and the good conservative family memebers aren't actually jumping in to help. You know, your bootstraps and all.

    The pay check comes and he has to manage medications, bills, and the situation he is in. Anything he does, he loses something. And sometimes, he says **** it, and has a moment. He feels guilty later, but there is little support out side of a few good friends he later says saved his life.

    Now, I was one of the friends, one of the few, and this person is not the only one I know like this. Work in the business for a awhile helping peopleand hearing their stories, and you'll learn a lot, or just hate everyone. Depends on your temperment and world view I think. I don't know how to link this type of thing. But what I know is everyone has a story. And I have enough education to know there is a blindness when your in the fight, a blindness that obstructs your view and doesn't allow you to see the chocies. I know that from being there. I was kicked out of my house at 16, lived on the streets awhile, and could not see my options until I was well past thirty. Good people, good liberals, taught me how to fish. I came to it late, so I have a lot of bad habits still, but I would not be here without them. Not saying I didn't work. But I know how easy it is to be lost. Don't know how to say it any clearer. But people can't be reached with platitudes and easy answers. You have to get dirty.

    And you have to understand the human condition, which is messy and anything but logical.

    LOL!

    But what I know is everyone has a story
    you can say that again...

    i got a druggie neighbor and his welfare fraud washout wife, he killed a girl drunk driving, twisted up his legs real bad, obese, permanent disability, lifetime scam artist...

    you're right, there are millions of sad stories

    tens of thousands in detroit alone

    And I have enough education to know there is a blindness when your in the fight
    but not sufficient to distinguish "your" from "you're," which most of us were taught in fourth grade

    indeed, "your" and "you're" made california's curriculum standards list of most commonly misspelled words---6th grade

    you'd think dept chairs would know

    this is dramatically incorrect. nominal corporate rates would typically make taxes the number two expense for most businesses.

This should be great for the 2012 campaign. Even paying no taxes could keep Obama's business buddy from moving business interests to China.

    GE's slogan should read: Progress to China is our most important product.

    GE owns CBS and CBS is Obama's voice, so Obama won't even question Immelt's decision about this GE's move even though Obama is (supposedly) working on job creation extremely hard . Obama has to pay back for CBS' Obama faithful support.
    Catch me if you can.

    You can't be raising taxes on corporations already finding it hard to compete.

    No he doesn't. That's a choice he made. She has a mental illness. Obviously she must be dangerous. Put her somewhere that can handle her.

    He recently had a kid with her. Please describe this condition that makes her suddenly so dangerous.

    sure he can. he just refuses to accept that doing so will make it harder, or even impossible. rich people, you see, are magic, and they just produce money and jobs ad infinitum. you can tax them regulate them as much as you want, and the only reason they would ever stop producing jobs or money is if they are economic traitors.

    GE Owns about 49% of NBC with comcast the remaining share. GE has nothing to do with CBS, which used to be owned by Westinghouse


    So why is CBS Obama voice
    Happy Hanukkah Cheerfull Kwanzaa
    Happy Christmas Merry New Year Festivus for the rest of us
