    I think you have to wait until November 2012 when Obama can get voted out.

We have a property tax (last time I checked [few months back*] it was $1.43 per $100 assessed value but there is no cities tax.
    those are the taxes that fund state and local services including Teachers, Fire fighters, and Teachers.

    Sure are. I shouldn't want to help out others with my money either? Helping others is a bad thing?

    If your state and local community needs more money for teachers then go to the people of your community, not the Federal Taxpayer. that isn't the role of the Federal Govt to handle what a state wants or the Federal govt. thinks they need. That is the role of the people in the community to decide what they want and then find a way to pay for it. Expansion of the Federal govt. is a slippery slope for when the money runs out or the strings attached, the local taxpayer ends up paying the bill. Let the local taxpayer decide what they want and need, not a federal bureaucrat

    Indeed, from your article - "A new survey shows that Americans overwhelmingly support the self-styled Occupy Wall Street protests that not only have disrupted life in Lower Manhattan but also in Washington and cities and towns across the U.S. and in other nations. Some 59 percent of adults either completely agree or mostly agree with the protesters, while 31 percent mostly disagree or completely disagree; 10 percent of those surveyed didn't know or refused to answer."

    Obama is currently neutered. Even his own party has now helped to de-ball him. JOBS was DOA. There are no Democrat co-sponsors to that POS.

    As the 2012 elections approach, watch and see how many Democrats up for reelection do not have him show up.

    The tea party's popular support waned when big money took over the agenda. I don't think big money will corrupt this group.

    LOL. The GOP, primarily due to Tea Party momentum, recorded historic gains in the mid-terms just 11 months ago. They figure to have a huge political impact on the 2012 elections, particularly with major GOP gains in the Senate.

    Of course, if "waning" is measured by how many times a group is not photographed crapping on the American flag, obstructing traffic and being the subject of mass arrests, and appearing as parasites who advocate mob rule ..... than "yeah", the Tea Party is waning

    Liberalism is absolutely a mental disorder.

    Provide the evidence. What medical journal is this in? Which psychoanalysis journal was this found?
