    Just wondering. Right now interest on municipal bonds pay zero taxes. Would you suggest taxing that at normal rates.

    This is no different than how the right constantly plays the victim card and acts as though it's strictly a tool of the left, constantly plays the race card by claiming that people are always calling them racists when in reality you hear conservatives complain about being called racist about ten times more then you actually hear any liberals calling them racist etc.

    I've always thought that both sides were mostly intelligent rational people with a few loons but I can't help but come to the conclusion lately that conservatives as a whole have just crossed that 50% thresh hold and now a majority of them are loons that function off of talking points.

    I feel like I should save this topic the next time I hear Mr.V complain how much liberal bias there is in the "other than Fox" media.

    It's not an opinion article, it wasn't in blogs, politics, it's reporting on a big business member bashing Obama. I know you don't want to admit that but...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Actually it's a news story about an opinion. And it is LoL worthy. We have dozens of people here who say the same stupid crap.

    But this is a rich successful man, and because he's rich and "successful" his opinion matters more then anybody elses... why? Because he has managed to accumulate more wealth than his average citizens which makes him smarter than anybody else OBVIOUSLY.

    Don't you know anything Redress?

    Unpresidential? Hardly. We've seen some pretty pathetic behavior from several different presidents. I don't think Obama scores high in the "leadership" category, but that doesn't make him unpresidential. More like ineffectual.

    It's also sweet irony to hear a Wall Street insider talk about how the government is going to cause economic destruction. Umm...what did some of you Wall Street guys try to do a couple years ago? (And I say this as a financial services lackey.) Look in the mirror, Langone.

    It's true we are divided. But we were very divided BEFORE Obama came into office. I see him trying to go down the middle on some solutions, for which I have to admire him. But we're already so polarized into our Left vs. Right camps that no one has the guts to try the middle way, so he's not getting much support when he does attempt it.

    I don't think the president is dividing us.... The rest, I can understand somebody feeling that way. I think Bush was a really divisive president, but I haven't heard Obama making very divisive comments about people or the right not supporting his legislation.

    Making us suspicious of each other... yeah right, I think Beck didn't a great job at that. The extreme right isn't willing to compromise, saying Obama is a socialist, Marxist, secret terrorist, secret Kenyan, etc.

    "I can't trust him, he's a, he's an Arab."

    Those people have been divided from the rest of us.

    Here is an example. Yes both sides do it but why do we allow it?

    It wasn't clear how long the delay might last, although a spokesman for Boehner said the vote was still expected to take place later in the evening.

    The White House quickly taunted Boehner's Republicans.

    Someone needs to go to Washington and slap the entire lot of them upside the head. I respect a difference in beliefs. Fight for what you believe is right. The "taunting" though is totally uncalled for at this level.
